The Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic and kindred people are the descendants of the ancient Israelites. When this is proclaimed the Judeo-Christian theological leaders and the Judeo-Christian clergy and those who accept the doctrines they promulgate are apt to vehemently deny that God has ever chosen any race. But the inconsistency of this denial is illustrated by their unequivocal acceptance of the Jewish claim to be a race specially selected by God. It is not uncommon to hear these same leaders refer to the Jews as God’s chosen people.

Until Christian people and the Judeo-Christian church leaders are willing to accept the Scriptural evidence identifying the House of Israel in the world today, they will continue to support the false Jewish claims to a heritage they will never be able to possess. As a result of bringing about the death of Yahshua the prediction was fulfilled that had been made through Daniel the Prophet:

“And they (the Jews) shall no more be his people: or, the prince’s (Messiah’s) future people.” (Daniel 9:26, marginal rendering in the King James Version)

However, we advance the argument that the Scripture clearly show in many places that Yahweh did indeed choose a special race unto Himself; that of the seed of Abraham, from whom the Israel people later came; to become His own. The prophets announced to Israel; Even

you have heard sermons by the Judeo-Christian preachers, one in particular, which would have you believe that the Blacks, Jews, Mexicans and all the other races are God’s Chosen people;  who were crying out that there is no Chosen Race, or People. This is a damnable, and provable lie. There is a Chosen Race and People in the Scriptures. The following very clearly shows this, and there are many more that I could have listed, but these should suffice.

Chosen People:

“For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: THE LORD THY GOD HATH CHOSEN THEE TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF, ABOVE ALL PEOPLE THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. The LORD DID NOT SET HIS LOVE UPON YOU, NOR CHOOSE YOU, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people: BUT BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED YOU, and BECAUSE HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE HAD SWORN UNTO YOUR FATHERS...” (Deuteronomy 7:6-8; 14:2; Isaiah 41:9; 43:1, 10-20; 44:23; 48:10; 49:3; Haggai 2:23)

My People Israel:

“Now the LORD had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came, saying, To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain OVER MY PEOPLE ISRAEL, THAT HE MAY SAVE MY PEOPLE out of the hand of the Philistines: for I HAVE LOOKED UPON MY PEOPLE, because their cry is come unto me. And when Samuel saw Saul, the LORD said unto him, BEHOLD THE MAN WHOM I SPAKE TO THEE OF THIS SAME SHALL REIGN OVER MY PEOPLE.” (Exodus 7:4; 1 Samuel 9:15-17; 2 Samuel 3:18; 5:2; 7:7; 7:10-11; 1 Kings 6:13; 8:16; 14:7; 16:2; 1 Chronicles 11:2; 17:7; 17:9-10; 2 Chronicles 6:5-6; Jeremiah 7:12; 12:14; 23:13; 30:3; Ezekiel 14:9; 25:14; 36:12; 9:7; Daniel 9:20; Amos 7:8; 7:15; Matthew 2:6)

My Chosen:

“I HAVE MADE A COVENANT WITH MY CHOSEN, I have sworn unto David my servant.” (Psalm 89:3; Isaiah 43:20; 65:15)

I Have Chosen:

“BUT THOU, ISRAEL, ART MY SERVANT, JACOB WHOM I HAVE CHOSEN, THE SEED OF ABRAHAM MY FRIEND. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, THOU ART MY SERVANT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. FEAR NOT, THOU WORM JACOB, AND YE MEN OF ISRAEL; I WILL HELP THEE, SAITH THE LORD, AND THY REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.” (Isaiah 41:8‑14; 43:10; 44:1-2; 44:21-23; John 13:18)

Thou Art My Servant:

“Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, THOU ART MY SERVANT I HAVE CHOSEN THEE, and not cast thee away.” (Isaiah 41:9; 44:21; 49:3)

“REMEMBER THESE, O JACOB AND ISRAEL; FOR THOU ART MY SERVANT: I HAVE FORMED THEE; THOU ART MY SERVANT; O ISRAEL, THOU SHALT NOT BE FORGOTTEN OF ME. I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I HAVE REDEEMED THEE. Sing, O ye heavens; for the LORD hath done it: shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for THE LORD HATH REDEEMED JACOB, AND GLORIFIED HIMSELF IN ISRAEL. THUS SAITH THE LORD, THY REDEEMER, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself.” (Isaiah 44:21-24)

His Chosen Ones:

“O YE SEED OF ISRAEL HIS SERVANT, YE CHILDREN OF JACOB, HIS CHOSEN ONES.”. (1 Chronicles 16:13; Psalms 105:6; 135:4; Isaiah 41:8; 44:1; Acts 9:15)

The People whom God has Chosen for His Inheritance:

“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and THE PEOPLE WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN FOR HIS OWN INHERITANCE.” (Psalm 33:12)

I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.

“But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine...For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.” (Isaiah 43:1, 34)

God chose Abraham alone.

“Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: FOR I CALLED HIM (Abraham) ALONE, and blessed him, and increased him.” (Isaiah 51:1-2)

Therefore, we are faced with a question: Where is the reminder of Israel in the world today?

                                 Not God’s People

The Jews rejected Yahshua as the Messiah and were responsible for His crucifixion.

“But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.” (Matthew 27:20‑25; Luke 23:23-33; 24:20; John 19:6; 19:14-18;  Acts 2:36; 3:14-15; 4:8-12; 5:30; 7:52; 10:39; 13;27-29; 1 Thessalonians 2:14-15)

In making this statement we are aware of the present–day endeavor by the Judeo-Christian clergy to exonerate Jewry of this heinous crime. It is untenable to hold tenaciously to the position that the Jews are the chosen people. Christ Himself passed judgment upon the Jews for their failure to accept Him and He confirmed the prediction in Daniel’s book when He said:

“Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.” (Matthew 23:38)

He also announced to the Jews who had rejected Him:

“Therefore say I unto you, The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation (not a church) bringing forth the fruits thereof.” (Matthew 21:43)

Do you believe these statements by Yahweh, or do you still think the Jews are the chosen people because of what they appear to be accomplishing in Palestine? We are fully informed about the many pronouncements by Judeo-Christian ministers, evangelists and other theologians, proclaiming that this is the promised return of Israel to the land of their forefathers in fulfillment of prophecy. There is a pressing necessity; more urgent now than ever before, to expose this error and replace it with the truth.

The Jews who today presume, in their arrogance, to be God’s people and maintain, therefore, that they are entitled to the land they now occupy, are in for a very rude awakening. Equally so, Christendom will, quite soon now, experience extreme shock and dismay because of its endeavor to cast modern Jewry in this abortive role.

                              Indisputable Evidence

Who, then, are the chosen people, who fulfill the requirements of a servant race? We must correctly identify those to whom the Psalmist was referring when he proclaimed:

“For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” (Psalm 135:4)

The following summation was a part of an earlier treatment of this vital subject and we repeat it here. It is impossible to comprehend the story the Bible tells, in all of its ramifications, or understand the full meaning of much of the Prophetic Word, or envision the scope of the redemptive work of Yahshua as Redeemer and Savior, or, indeed, grasp the far-reaching implications of every aspect of the Second Advent of our Lord, apart from the identification of the Race of the Book and the major role that race has taken, and will take, in the Divine plan. Let us now go on to establish our premise, based upon the truth as it is found in the Scriptures, and, from the facts brought forth, we will arrive at the only possible incontrovertible conclusion.

                              Equal Before the Law

There is no such things as equality among individuals and races except as it pertains to justice, equity and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. There should be nothing less than equality in the administration of law among all peoples.

                               God Chose Abraham

Yahweh took both individual and racial traits into consideration when He selected Abraham and his seed, choosing them from among all the families of the earth to carry out certain assigned tasks. The Divine purpose being the establishment of righteousness throughout the world, God singled out the descendants of Abraham to function as His Kingdom on the earth. Abraham was a Hebrew (Genesis 14:13), and certainly not a Jew; he was a descendant of Eber, or Heber (Genesis 10:25), whose forefather was Shem, a son of Noah. God explained why he chose Abraham:

“For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.” (Genesis 18:19)

Thus, in rearing his children, Abraham was to surpass others in exercising righteous authority and his household was to be obedient to him. Also, his descendants were to be distinctive among all races in keeping the way of the Lord and in the administration of justice. This excellency was not a matter of superiority; it was a special gift, or talent, from God so that they might be used of Him to fulfill His will.

                              The Holy One of Israel

From the very outset, a relationship was to exist between God and His own people which would be unique. God declared through the Prophet Isaiah:

“But thou, Israel, art my servant; Jacob, whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham, my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yes, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:8-10)

Again and again, Yahweh proclaims Himself to be the Holy One in the midst of Israel (see Isaiah, chapters 43 and 44). That God did choose Israel for Himself is made unmistakably clear:

“Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” (Isaiah 43:10)

The fact is reiterated that the primary mission Israel in the world is to be the Lord’s servant people:

“For thou art my servant: I have formed thee; thou art my servant, O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me.” (Isaiah 44:21)

The ultimate objective of the close, harmonic affiliation between the Lord and His people, to be finally achieved, is exultantly voiced in the whole of Isaiah’s 12th chapter:

“And in that day you will say, I will give thanks to You, O Lord, for though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold God, my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, the Lord God is my strength and song; yes, He has become my salvation. Therefore, with joy will you draw water from the wells of salvation.

“And in that day you will say, Give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name and by means of His name (in solemn entreaty); declare and make known His deeds among the peoples of the earth; proclaim that His name is exalted! Sing praises to the Lord, for He has done excellent things; gloriously: let this be made known in all the earth. Cry aloud and shout joyfully, you women and inhabitants of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.” (Isaiah 12:1-6, Amplified Bible)

                                 A Race Set Apart

Those who object to being told that God did select a particular race, contending that He showed extreme bias if this is true, must come to realize that He did make one people His special care, for the Word of the Lord declares:

“I am the Lord your God, which have separated you from other people...And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the Lord am holy, and have severed you from the other people that ye should be mine.” (Leviticus 20:24, 26)

This accounts for the fact that, in the Book of Zechariah it is stated concerning the relationship between the Lord of Hosts and His people Israel that “he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.” (Zechariah 2:8) The Apostle Peter pointed out what the Divine objective is:

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people (marginal rendering: ‘a purchased people’); that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9)

For Israel’s sake Babylon was brought down to ruin, for the Lord admits His partiality toward His people:

“For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou was precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.” (Isaiah 43:3-4)

Such blessings as these surely set the people involved apart from all other races upon earth and they are promised to no other race except Israel. This Divine protection is guaranteed to His servant race because it will become their responsibility to obey the will of the Lord and act as His witnesses among the nations.

                            The Abrahamic Covenant

Thus, God did select one man, Abraham, and his wife, Sarah, with whom He entered into an unconditional, everlasting covenant, the expanding provision of which are enumerated in several chapters of the Book of Genesis. The substance of the covenant the Lord God Almighty made with Abraham and his descendants was that the posterity of Abraham was to be used of god as the pivot of a far-reaching plan that would ultimately benefit all mankind. Therefore, those who blessed Abraham would be blessed and those who cursed him would be cursed, for in him all the families of the earth would be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3)

God also promised territorial expansion to Abraham and his seed, northward, southward, eastward and westward. (Genesis 13:14-15) They were to receive the fatness of the earth, with plenty to sustain them. A nation and a company of nations would come into being from Abraham’s seed; in fact, he would be “a father of many nations.” (Genesis 17:4-5) The promise of a royal seed was given:

“I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” (Genesis 17:6-7)

                               The Appointed Seed

The race of people who became the progeny of Abraham and Sarah, through their son Isaac, was chosen by God to be His own to serve Him and fulfill His purposes on earth as His Kingdom people When God challenged all comers, through the Prophet Isaiah, to produce one greater than Himself, He asked a pertinent question:

“Thus saith the Lord, the King of Israel, and his redeemer, the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. And who, as I, shall call and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people?” (Isaiah 44:6-7)

The answer to this question takes us back to the original selection of the seed which was to produce the servant race. After righteous Abel was slain by Cain, who “went out from the presence of the Lord” (Genesis 4:16), Eve gave birth to another son “and called his name Seth: for God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.” (Genesis 4:25) When the Lord said to His people Israel, “I formed thee form the womb” (Isaiah 44:2), this declaration has more than one meaning, for God’s appointed people were formed in the very womb of Adam kind.

                                 A Dedicated Race

The Bible records the genealogy of man from Adam to Noah, the eighth Preacher of Righteousness. Then, from Noah, the line of descent to Abraham is given. To Abraham and Sarah, a son, Isaac, was born and, under instruction from God, Abraham placed Isaac upon the altar, dedicating him and his race, to the service of the Lord. (Genesis 22:1-18) god accepted that dedication and confirmed the covenant to Isaac when He said to him:

“I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham thy father; and I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.” (Genesis 26:3-5)

                               From Isaac to Saxon

In the Epistle to the Hebrews, the statement is made:

“By faith Abraham, when he was tried (i.e., put to the test), offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said that in Isaac shall thy seed be called.” (Hebrews 11:17-18)

The pronouncement by the Lord to Abraham, “In Isaac shall thy seed be called,” was first stipulated in Genesis 21:12 and it is referred to by Paul, as given in Romans 9:7. It is a vital link in the racial development of the nations of the servant people. In the article entitled “The Heritage of the Lord” (Destiny Magazine, September 1965), it was stated:

“Professor Edward Odlum maintained that the correct translation is: ‘In Isaac shall they seed be named.’ He went on to state: ‘This covenant promise has been made good. The seed of Isaac today are called Sacksons (Saxons) in and after Isaac.’ In his book, The Post-Captivity Names of Israel, Dr. William Pascoe Goard mentioned some of the later derivations of the name of the sons of Abraham and Sarah:

“‘ The name Isaac has also a score or more of variations, such as Sakai, Sacae, Sakasuna.

“‘ Isaac: This was ‘patronymic.’ It was given by the Almighty before Isaac was born, as the name of the ‘seed’ in whom the covenant would be vested. It was brought down through all the generations, for ‘in Isaac shall thy seed be called’ was the promise and the command of God. Isaac was an older name than Israel. It was, and still is, the family name for Israel. Israel stands for religious relationship with God, Isaac stands for family relationship.’

“This was the seed of Abraham which was to spread abroad over the face of the whole earth, northward, southward, eastward, westward, uncountable as the sands of the seashore and as the stars of the heavens for multitude. Today the descendants of Abraham are the peoples who inhabit the nations allotted to the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic peoples, who are God’s Heritage. Moses specifically stated this:

“‘When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel. (Who have been the exploring people? Those who traveled all around the word searching out new land? Of course it was the Israel people, the other races didn’t move from their appointed place except under extreme circumstances such as war, famine, and etc., then unless they were hindered by the Israel people they went right back to where they came from. They did not explore the world, nor any other place; until the Israel people went there first and brought them along; the Jews have never been explorers they have, as parasites, always followed Israel in its travels. Not even Columbus was an explorer and said into uncharted waters; for the New World as it became know, had already been visited by the Israel people in the form or Vikings, and etc.) For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.’ (Deuteronomy 32:8-9)

“The word ‘lot’ means ‘measuring line’ and one of the original words contributing to its definition implies ‘as by a pledge.’ That pledge was the unconditional covenant God made with Abraham.’”

The above-mentioned article goes on to state:

“The third generation of Abraham’s descendants, then called by the name of Israel, encamped at the foot of Mount Sinai and there the kingdom of God was organized on the earth. There the people received the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Law of the Lord. Through Moses, God declared they were to become a kingdom of priests (Exodus 19:6); that is, administrators of God’s Law, first as the law of their own land, then, ultimately, to bring justice to all mankind. NO OTHER RACE ON THE FACE OF THE GLOBE WAS SELECTED FOR THIS TASK. It was the responsibility and destiny placed upon the shoulders of the seed of Abraham because, in the Divine foreknowledge, it was known that they alone, as Abraham’s posterity, wold possess the inherent characteristics, which would enable them, under Divine tutelage, to fulfill God’s will to bring peace to the world under the righteous rule of His Kingdom.”

Therefore, the multiplied evidence which is now obtainable, gathered from many sources, leads us to make the unequivocal declaration that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic peoples are today the modern Israel of God.

                                  Ruling With God

Abraham and his descendants were called to fulfill a purpose in the plan of God and the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic peoples today, as his progeny and the inheritors of the promises and covenants of God, are committed to the carrying out of specific tasks as a part of the Divine design for the blessing of all mankind. They do this as God’s Chosen Servants, dedicated to their forefather Isaac, and charged with the responsibility which cannot be evaded.

It was the Lord’s will that the everlasting covenant He had made with Abraham should be carried on through Abraham’s son Isaac; then through Isaac’s son Jacob. To Jacob the name of Israel was given by the Lord Himself and this spiritual name means “a prince with God” or “ruling with God.” Each of Jacob’s twelve sons became the head of a tribe, constituting the twelve tribes of Israel. Their names were: Reuben, Joseph, Judah, Benjamin, Simeon, Levi, Issachar, Zebulun, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher. Each tribe took the name of its founder.

Jacob, Isaac’s son, experienced difficulty in securing confirmation of the covenant promises because of his impatience and due to family circumstances. However, the blessings were finally assured to him after he had made restitution of the lordship which he wrongfully took from his brother Esau. (Genesis 27:1-38; 33:1-8) Esau later forested the lordship and, by default, it reverted to Jacob.

                               Prophetic Blessings

The covenant promises to Abraham were passed on in their entirety to both Isaac and Jacob, but, in blessing Jacob’s family, each son received his individual portion. The record of this allotment to the sons of Jacob/Israel is given in the 49th chapter of Genesis, which opens with this statement:

“And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in the last days.” (Genesis 49:1)

It will be seen from this instruction that there was a prophetic aspect involved in what was to follow, for the ultimate fulfillment of what Jacob/Israel envisioned would take place in the far future. While each one of Jacob’s sons, as the patriarch of a tribe, received his portion of the covenant blessings, Joseph inherited the birthright.

It is unreasonable to assert that the Jews inherited all the blessings promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, for they are the bastard people of one race only, Judah, the progenitor of those among the Jews who are truly descended from him, was given his own portion of the blessings. (Genesis 49:8-10) The material blessings of abundance, under the birthright, were not given to Judah but to Joseph. (Genesis 49:22-26) This is clearly shown in the record:

“Now the sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but, forasmuch as he defiled his father’s bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph, the son of Israel: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph’s).” (1 Chronicles 5:1-2)

We are concerned with those birthright promises, for with them went the honor of the father’s name and the right to bear it, together with his material possessions, to be composed of the accumulation of abundant wealth. This included territorial expansion and a multitudinous seed which would become a company of nations and a great people. It is evident from the record that Judah never inherited these blessings; nor do the Jews today possess them. But they should not because they are NOT Israel.

While Judah received his royal share, this did not include the birthright, for Jacob/Israel passed the birthright hegemony on to Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. The fascinating story of this special apportionment is told in the 48th chapter of Genesis. The purport of Jacob’s action is clarified in the article entitled “The Birthright Inheritance,” where it stated:

“The emphasis is on the word ‘inheritance:’ therefore, what occurred at Jacob’s bedside, involving himself, Joseph and Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, was not so much an adoption ceremony as it was an inheritance ritual.”

Placing a hand on the head of each grandson, Jacob/Israel uttered this prophecy:

“He (Manasseh) also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother (Ephraim) shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations. And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh.” (Genesis 48:19-20)

No race outside of the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic peoples possess these marks of identification today. It is believed by many, and because of it the British Israel belief was spawned, that Britain became the company of nations; that is, a commonwealth of nations, and the United States of America became the great people, as it is stipulated in the Preamble of our Constitution:

“We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

But we submit that not only are they in error about the British Israel belief they are also in error about who is Empraim and Manasseh. Britain cannot be Ephraim because at no time in their history have they ever consisted of many nations. Oh they have had many colonies, and protectorates, but they have never been made up of many nations. But they have been a Great Nation.

The United States of America fits the description of the many nations prophecy; for it is by its very existence the combination of many nations. Fifty separate nations, joined together into a commwealth of nations, to form one Great Nation. Also, it consists of all thirteen tribes regathered into one Great Nation consisting of fifty different ones united.

That today Britain and the United States comprise the modern House of Joseph, there is no doubt. What better proof could there be that within the borders of their nations are found the lineal descendants of Abraham!

                               The Kingdom of God

As we follow the history of Jacob and his sons, we find that they entered Egypt as a family and, in a much later generation, emerged as a great company of people under the leadership of Moses. The 19th and 20th chapters of Exodus set forth the establishment of this people as God’s Kingdom at Mount Sinai while they sojourned in the wilderness between Egypt, from which they escaped, and the Promised Land of Canaan, toward which they were trekking. There were many awe-inspiring experiences of the leading and guidance of the Lord during those years of wilderness wandering, not the least of which was the spectacularly manifested presence of the Lord on Mount Sinai, as it is recorded in the 19th chapter of Exodus:

“And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel: Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: and ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.” (Exodus 19:3-6)

On three occasions the people gave their unanimous assent to the Divine proposition, with the unqualified vow: “All that the Lord hath spoken, we will do.” (Exodus 19:8; 24:3; Deuteronomy 5:27) Later on, as Moses prepared to complete his Divinely-assigned tasks as the leader of God’s people, he reminded them of their commitment:

“This day the Lord thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, Thou hast avouched the Lord this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and judgments and to hearken unto his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments; and to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honor; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the Lord thy God, as he hath spoken.” (Deuteronomy 26:16-19)

Thus, the covenant of nationhood, between the Lord God Yahweh and Israel, came into being and its basis was that the people agreed to administer all of the Divine laws as the law of their land. Yahweh, the God of Israel, became their King; the House of Jacob became the people of the Kingdom of God; the commandments, statutes and judgments of the Law of the Lord became the laws of the Kingdom and the basis of its constitution. A nation church was established within the Kingdom, with ordinances of worship.

                               Established on Earth

The Angel Gabriel’s annunciation to Mary, the mother of Christ, recorded in the New Testament (Luke 1:26-33), should be sufficient evidence to convince every Christian of the act that the organization of the Kingdom of our Lord and Savior took place at Mount Sinai. Not only did the Angel declare to Mary that she would bring forth a son, whose name was to be called Yahshua, but he also announced:

“And the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” (Luke 1:32-33)

If the Christian world accepts the first part of the Angel’s annunciation as true, then it must follow that the remainder of the Divine pronouncement is also true. Therefore, the House of Jacob is God’s Kingdom on earth and it is the very Kingdom over which Yahshua will reign when He returns to take the throne of His father David. This fact alone should send every Christian back to the Old Testament to investigate the history and destiny of the House of Jacob.

It is God, not man, who has said Israel shall be a peculiar treasure unto Him above all people who are upon the fact of the earth. Thus, throughout the generations since the inception of the Kingdom of God at Mount Sinai, the Israel peoples have been moving toward their destiny. This is absolutely true, for, in spite of any outward appearance to the contrary, the Divine plan concerning the Kingdom of God has not been interrupted or interfered with. The day will come; and soon we believe, when the whole meaning of our Lord’s parable of the grain of mustard seed will become apparent to all. Matthew’s Gospel records this as the third of seven Kingdom parables:

“Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.” (Matthew 13:31-32)

The Prophet Isaiah envisioned the coming day when the whole world will behold the perfection of the Kingdom of God, restored upon the earth. Thereupon Christ will exercise His royal authority, having returned as King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:16); and the ultimate conclusion of the Divine planning will be achieved:

“The government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom to order it, and to establish it from henceforth ever for ever. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:6-7)

Thus, the enthusiasm (this is the correct definition of the word “zeal”) of the Lord of Battles; who intervened again and again in the affairs of Israel, as recorded in Holy Writ, who continues His dealings with modern Israel, to which secular history attests; will bring about the harmony of Kingdom administration, with peace throughout the earth following the restitution of Kingdom laws. In the first place, to recognize who the Kingdom people are, to correctly identify the modern Israel of God in the world today, would provide the key to unlock the secrets of revelation, while the purport of the messages of the prophets would become correspondingly clear. Secondly, if Christendom would awaken to the realization that the Kingdom of God was established “on earth” at Mount Sinai, there would be an instant comprehension of the whole story the Bible tells.

                               The Place Appointed

For forty years Israel wandered in the wilderness, where the people were schooled in Kingdom administration. Under the leadership of Moses, Israel came out of slavery in Egypt and they entered the Promised Land under Joshua as a people possessing perfect laws and juridical and administrative system “par excellence.” In Palestine Israel was first under judges, then under kings; finally the royal line of the House of David was separated from the tribe of Judah and was established to perpetuate the kingly line in Israel forever. (2 Samuel 7:12-16; Psalm 89:35-37)

Contemporary with Israel’s history, recorded in the Bible from Egypt to Palestine, there is the history of the line of Zarah, a son of Judah, whose descendants broke away from the main body of the Israel people before the Exodus and founded colonies around the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The account of this early Milesian civilization, whose colonies extended to the British Isles, is found in secular history. Let us not forget that these people are included in the Abrahamic Covenant. Moreover, the British Isles became the place appointed where the Prophet Nathan declared the throne of David, and the people of Israel would be at rest:

“Moreover, I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime.” (2 Samuel 7:10; see also 1 Chronicles 17:9; Jeremiah 23:3-8; 50:17; Isaiah 14:1; 26:12-14 Ezekiel 34:13; 37:21; 39:22-29)

This was not Palestine, for when this was uttered, almost all of Israel was dwelling there; there were some already in the British Isles and other places in Europe. At the very time the prophet was telling David of the appointed place, the advance outposts of Israel had already taken possession of the land to which, later, the tribes of Israel migrated. It was Israel in the Isles to whom the Divine summons was addressed: “Listen, O Isles, unto me: and hearken, ye people, from far.” (Isaiah 49:1)

It was during the reign of King Rehoboam in Palestine that the Kingdom of Israel was divided into the Northern Kingdom, under Jeroboam, with Samaria as it capital, and the Southern Kingdom of Judah, with Jerusalem as its capital. The Northern Kingdom became known as the House of Israel, while the Southern Kingdom, the tribe of Benjamin, was lent to the House of David, which was the ruling house in the Kingdom of Judah, for the following purpose:

“That David, my servant, may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.” (1 Kings 11:36)

This looked forward to a time to come when the throne of David and its occupants, removed from Jerusalem, would need a lightbearer to be informed of events which would take place in the City of David.

Following the division of the Kingdom into two opposing factions, the House of Israel lapsed into the sin of repudiation of the Divine laws, adopting the practices of idolatry. Later on the House of Judah followed the same course. (Jeremiah 3:8) Therefore, the Kingdom of Israel was subdued by its enemies and taken into Assyrian captivity (740-719 B.C.) And the majority of the Kingdom of Judah was taken into the Assyrian Captivity also. Only a small remnant in Jerusalem and the cities surrounding it were later taken into the Babylonian captivity some 130 years later.

The House of Israel never returned to Palestine as a nation, but later, when the opportunity came, the people having undergone segmentation, they moved out of Assyria in groups, or clans, under different names, such as the Getae, Massagetae, Scythians, Goths, Visigoths, Ostrogoths, etc., in a massive westward trek. Passing through central and southern Europe, they eventually began to congregate in the British Isles. There was a substantial amalgamation there and then a section split away, moving ever westward, to inherit all the lands reserved for them by God as “an appointed place of their own,” including the North American Continent, and to come into possession of the “desolate heritages” of the earth. (Isaiah 49:8)

                                   Royal Descent

At the time of the captivity of the Kingdom of Judah, the House of David was removed from Jerusalem when the daughters of King Zedekiah were taken by the Prophet Jeremiah to the appointed place in the Isles north and west of Palestine. There the union was consummated between the Zarah and Pharez branches of the tribe of Judah in the marriage of Tea Tephi of the House of David, Jeremiah’s ward, to Eochaidh, the Heremonn of Ireland, of the line of Zarah. Jeremiah was instrumental in bringing to fruition the fulfillment of the riddle put forth by the Prophet Ezekiel in planting the “tender twig” (Tea Tephi) in the land of traffic and in the city of merchants by great waters (see Ezekiel, chapter 17). Thus, the present monarch in England is a direct descendant of the Royal House of David.

When the House of Judah had served its term of captivity (70 years) in Babylon, a remnant returned to Palestine with some of the tribe of Benjamin and a few Levites. This remnant constituted the Nation of the Jews. It became their task to rebuild the Temple and the city of Jerusalem, for the Lord Jesus Christ was to come to the Temple and the city. There He would be rejected and crucified by the Jews, and becoming the Redeemer of Israel and the Savior of His Israel people.

Under Ezra and Nehemiah the Temple was rebuilt and the city of Jerusalem was restored. Thereafter, at the appointed time, the Redeemer came. Rejected as their Messiah by the Jews, and repudiated as their King, Jesus suffered and died upon the stake, but rose again on the third day.

“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.” (John 15:22-24)

Following all of the events of that crucial epoch in history, the bond of brotherhood between Judah and Israel was broken. (Zechariah 11:14) The Galileans, who were of the tribe of Benjamin, accepted Christianity whole-heartedly and became lightbearers of the glad tidings of redemption to the House of David and to the House of Israel scattered abroad, in the British Isles and throughout the earth.

                                Erroneous Concept

It is important here a fallacy, long taught by the Judeo-Christian Church, that the Jews gave us Christianity. This is called the Judeo-Christian concept, embraced by Protestants and Roman Catholics, as well as Jewry, and it is grotesque misnomer. It is motivated by the Jewish claim to be the “chosen people” and the false contention that Jesus was a Jew, whereas Christ WAS NOT A JEW.

These theological allegations, while highly suitable for propaganda purposes, have no Scriptural foundation, for the Jews not only opposed Christ and denied Him as the Messiah and King, but they actually crucified Him.

“But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus. The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children.” (Matthew 27:20‑25; Luke 23:23-33; 24:20; John 19:6; 19:14-18;  Acts 2:36; 3:14-15; 4:8-12; 5:30; 7:52; 10:39; 13;27-29; 1 Thessalonians 2:14-15)

Then they persecuted His followers, among them the Benjamites living in Galilee. It was from this that Christ chose His disciples, except for one, Judas a Jew, who betrayed Him. John said that he was a devil and it is also recorded that he was a thief:

“This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.” (John 12:6)

Christ said that he was a devil:

“Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?” (John 6:70)

Christ further said that the Jews were the children of the devil:

“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

Peter, a Galilean, was known by his speech that he was not a Jew. (Matthew 26:73) Paul tells us he was of the tribe of Benjamin (Romans 11:1), although he was a Jew by religion, “taught according to the perfect manner of the law of the fathers.” (The teachings of the Traditions of the Elders, as Christ called it). (Acts 22:3)

                              Recovenanted to God

When the Kingdom of God was taken from the Jews because they refused to bring forth the fruits of righteousness (Matthew 21:43), the nation to which the Kingdom was to be given was the outcast House of Israel whose redemption Christ accomplished by His sacrifice on the stake of Calvary. The Jews knew that the House of Israel was in existence, beyond the confines of Palestine, for when the Pharisees sent officers to arrest Him, He said a day would come when they would seek Him and would not find Him. Then they asked the question:

“Whither will he go, that we shall not find him? WILL HE GO UNTO THE DISPERSED AMONG THE GENTILES?” (John 7:35)

James the brother of Christ gives a second witness that the twelve tribes were some other place than in Palestine and Jerusalem:

“James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, TO THE TWELVE TRIBES WHICH ARE SCATTERED ABROAD, greeting.” (James 1:1)

During the Gospel Age, outcast Israel became a Christian people, again functioning as God’s Chosen Servants to carry the glad tidings of the Gospel of salivation to the ends of the earth. Referring to Israel, Jeremiah declared they would be a Christian people in the latter days.

“At the same time, saith the Lord, will I be the God of all the families of Israel, and they shall be my people. Thus saith the Lord, The people which were left of the sword found grace in the wilderness; even Israel, when I went to cause him to rest.” (Jeremiah 31:1-2)

The Prophet Hosea also refers to Israel’s failure to recognize their origin and identity, yet at the same time calling themselves the sons of God, that is, a Christian people.

“Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.” (Hosea 1:10)

Moses also declared that in the last days Israel would embrace Christian circumcision:

“And the Lord thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the Lord they God with all tine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live (that is, have eternal life).” (Deuteronomy 30:6)

                             The Difference it Makes

The question is often asked: “If we are Israel, what difference does it make?” Very much indeed, God has issued a clear call in the Bible to the House of Israel, found and Redeemed, to awaken to their identity and rise to their responsibilities. First the call to rediscover their origin:

“Look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham, your father, and unto Sarah that bare you.” (Isaiah 51:1-2)

This is followed by the command:

“Cry aloud, spare not, lift up they voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” (Isaiah 58:13)

What is the national transgressions of the chosen servants of God? Is it not their failure to keep the vow they took at Mount Sinai when they said: “All that the Lord hath spoken, we will do.” (Exodus 19:8) The importance of this vow cannot be over stressed. The Law of the Lord requires:

“When thou shalt vow a vow unto the Lord thy God, thou shalt not be slack to pay it: for the Lord thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee...That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform.” (Deuteronomy 23:21-23)

As a nation, Israel made a vow to the Lord their God and the nations of modern Israel today, the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic peoples, are ignoring the necessity to keep it. THIS IS OUR NATIONAL SIN! God will require our performance of this oath, as a nation, for it is requisite to deliverance in the time of trouble to come. The Psalmist declares:

“Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the Most High: and call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.” (Psalm 50:14-15)

                             Individual Responsibility

As it becomes known that the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandianian, Celtic peoples are Israel in the world today, each person who receives this knowledge will not be held guiltless if he/she fails to warn those whom they can of their accountability under the everlasting Abrahamic Covenant and the penalties for the nation’s failure to obey God’s laws. Through the Prophet Ezekiel, the Lord has conferred the title of “watchman” upon all those to whom He has revealed Himself as the Holy One in the midst of His people Israel. The charge is twice repeated:

“Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore, hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.” (Ezekiel 3:17; 33:7)

Those to whom the Lord has disclosed His great plan have the inescapable duty to warn, even though their words are countered with indifference, hostility or ridicule. So great is this individual responsibility that the Lord has declared what is entailed if we refuse to warn our brethren:

“When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn form his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou has delivered thy soul.” (Ezekiel 33:8-9)

                             National Responsibility

The type of message and the kind of warning which shall be given to the House of Israel is set forth by the Lord:

“Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel. Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live? Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” (Ezekiel 33:10-11)

This message is national in scope and contains three important clauses:

1). It warns the House of Israel that tribulation and trouble are the result of disobedience and rebellion.

2). It declares they must turn from their evil ways.

3). It summons the nation to repent and make restitution, fulfilling the solemn vow made at Mount Sinai and reaffirmed under Joshua after the conquest of Palestine.

                               Under divine Duress

We have entered a new cycle of God’s dealing with His people, under accumulating conditions of severe chastisement which will compel the nation to turn to Him for His intervention. Our forefathers had a similar experience when God, being careful not to violate the nation’s free will, nevertheless so restricted the prosperity of the people that Israel was eventually driven to submit to His overruling judgment. The Prophet Hosea records the Lord’s words:

“Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths.” (Hosea 2:6)

This is telling us that we will never return to Palestine and that as a nation, we have again maneuvered ourselves into potentially disastrous circumstances by our flagrant violation of the Divine laws. Nevertheless, through Ezekiel, our gracious God discloses what He intends to do:

“Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord God. And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant: And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgress against me...and ye shall know that I am the Lord.” (Ezekiel 20:36-38)

                          Our Covenant-Keeping God

Through the Prophet Isaiah, the Lord long ago proclaimed Himself to be the Redeemer of His people Israel, for from the foundation of the world provision was made for their redemption through the sacrifice of His own Won (see Isaiah, chapters 48-53). God cannot, and will not, renounce any of His covenant promises for the reason that the prophet gives:

“Because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, and he shall choose thee.” (Isaiah 49:7)

The Epistle to the Hebrews enlarges upon this reason:

“For when god made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee...For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is tho them an end of all strife. Wherein god, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed it by an oath: that by the two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us: which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.” (Hebrews 6:13-20)

The Bible enumerates multitudes of blessings which will be showered upon the nations of Israel when they return to the Lord in genuine repentance and sincerity:

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

As watchmen in Israel today we must proclaim god’s requirements for the individual and for the nation personal repentance and salvation for everyone through Christ Jesus, our Savior, Redeemer, and national repentance and redemption, which will bring about the restoration of the Kingdom of God in perfection upon the earth, through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer and our coming King.
