Your Heritage

Much is heard in this day of the word ANTI‑ SEMITIC The word is a creation of the modern Pharisees who are anti‑Christian. The purpose of the creation was to "smear" or blacken the name or reputation of Christians seeking to protect and defend their faith from the onslaughts of those who would destroy it.

The word "Semitic" is derived from the patriarch Shem, and is correctly applied to people descended from him. All true Israelites (NOT Jews, as this booklet shows) are therefore Semites; and today these are the great White Christian nations of the Western World. The Jews are not Semitic at all, as their Canaanite and Khazar ancestors were not descendants of Shem. Their smear accusation "anti‑Semitic" against all who oppose Jewish seizure of Palestine is, therefore, false. (Indeed, the Arabs; who are half Semitic, can truthfully accuse the Jews of anti‑ Semitism!)

That fact is quite obvious. It has been said that Communism seeks to make black; white, and white, black. The word anti‑Semitic is just one example of such mis‑use and intended opposite meaning, in an effort to attach an ill‑sounding term which should be self‑applied, to him or them who are actually quite the opposite in viewpoint.

It is one purpose of this study to bring to the reader accurate Biblical and historic proof of the error applied in the use of the term anti‑Semitic.

It is hoped that much confusion, purposely created as camouflage, will be clarified in the minds of Christians by the careful reading and study of the material so excellently presented by the author.

The Bible is written about, and addressed to, God's people, "Israel." It is the history of their past, the prophecy of their future, the law of their relation to their God, and the promise of God's eternal care of them.

The common misconception, that "the Jews are Israel, or all that remains of them," has made the Bible meaningless, and most of it apparently false, to those who hold this mistaken belief. It is just as though you took a good history of the United States, but wherever the name "United States" appeared therein, you erased it and wrote "China" in its place. As a history of China, it would be obviously false; but if you applied it to the right nation, it would be clearly true.

The Bible's history of Israel's past is known to be accurate; and its prophecies of Israel's future have been fulfilled in every detail, down to the present day. When the police have the fingerprints of a wanted man, they know that the man whose fingerprints match those they have is the man they seek. Likewise, when we find the people to whom God has fulfilled all of His promises and prophecies to Israel, we have found Israel! Today, the Anglo‑Saxon‑Scandinavian and Germanic nations have Israel's finger‑prints in every detail.

When we realize that WE ARE ISRAEL, the Bible becomes full of meaning for us: it is our history, it contains God's promises to us. It gives us courage to face the. terrible upheaval into which all the world is being drawn. If you will only read the Bible with an open mind, taking no man's word for it, but proving for yourself what the Bible says, then comparing that with what you know of present‑day history, you will see that WE are God's People Israel, and that, however terrible the trial ahead, we will be brought safely through it when we turn to God.

FIRST: Let us briefly review the ancient history of Israel. God

first made His promises of wonderful blessings to

Abram, changing his name to "Abraham," meaning "Father of

Nations." Note that this is in the plural ‑ nations.

God repeated His promises to Abraham's son, Isaac; and again

to Isaac's son Jacob, whose name God changed

to ''Israel,'' which means ''He will rule with God.''

Israel had twelve sons. The descendants of each son became in

time a Tribe, under its ancestor's name: thus, all

the descendants of Dan became the Tribe of Dan, all the

descendants of Benjamin became the Tribe of Benjamin,

etc. For many centuries, all members of all the twelve tribes

collectively were known as the "children" ‑ that is,

descendants of Israel. However, do not confuse this with the

later "House," or Kingdom, of Israel, about which I

will have more to say later.

    Israel and his twelve sons, with their families, went into Egypt,

as you will remember; and after about 2 1/2

centuries, their descendants left Egypt in the Exodus, under the

leadership of Moses. For several generations they

were ruled by "Judges" appointed by God. Later, they unwisely

copied the customs of the surrounding nations and

demanded a King; so Saul became their first king, ruling the

twelve tribes as a single nation. This unified nation of

twelve tribes (like the United States of fifty states) continued

until the death of Solomon, in 975 BC., when it

broke into two nations, Israel and Judah.

1st Kings 11‑12 tell us how Solomon finally fell into idolatry,

mis‑governed the people and burdened them with

excessive taxes. (Yes, they babbled about "New Deals" and

"Great Societies" in those days, too!) When his son

Rehoboam succeeded Solomon as King, in 975 B.C., the weary

people petitioned him to ease their burdens; but

being vain and arrogant, and surrounded by a lot of "bright"

young Jewish advisors (even as today!), he threatened

to make their load heavier. The exasperated people of the ten

Northern tribes revolted, and set up their own.

independent kingdom under Jeroboam, the son of Nebat, which

is told in detail in 1st Kings, Chapters 11 and 12

and 2nd Chronicles 10 and 11. Rehoboam, the son of Solomon

had left in his Kingdom only the two Southern

tribes, Judah and Benjamin, with some of the Levites, who were

the priests: and this Southern Kingdom was

never thereafter known as "Israel," but only as the House (or

Kingdom) of Judah. The Northern, ten‑tribed

kingdom was thereafter called the House (or Kingdom) of Israel.

Just as the Southern kingdom Judah, took its

name from the Tribe of Judah. which was the ruling Tribe, so

also the Northern Kingdom of Israel was

sometimes called "Ephraim" in the prophecies, because the

Tribe of Ephraim was the most powerful tribe in it.

The histories and destinies of the two kingdoms were thereafter

separate: they engaged separately in foreign wars

and treaties, and were sometimes at war with each other, as the

Book of Kings and Chronicles record.

From the time of this separation, 975 B.C., the Bible very

carefully distinguished between the Southern, two tribed

nation of Judah and the Northern, ten‑tribed nation of Israel. This

distinction is kept clear, both in the historical

record of what is past and the prophetic record of what is to

come. It would take another volume to cover them

all; but for a few examples, see the following: the distinction is

made historically in 2nd Samuel 19:40‑43; 1st

Kings 14:19‑21; 15:1‑33; 16:2; 2nd Kings 3:1‑9; 2nd  Chronicles

16:1; 25:5‑10; and many others. The distinction

is kept clear in prophecies in Isaiah 7:1‑9; 11:12‑13; Jeremiah

:3:6‑18; 5:11; 11:10‑17; 13:11; 18:l‑6; 19:1‑13;

Ezekiel 37:16‑22; Daniel 9:7; Hosea 1:11; 4:15; 5:9‑15; Amos 1:1;

Micah 1:5; Zechariah 8:13; 10:6‑8; and many others.

Just as we must carefully distinguish between the two nations of

Israel and Judah, so also we must carefully

distinguish between the nation of Judah and the Jews.

Both Israel and Judah were carried into captivity ‑ but

separately, and at different times, by different conquerors,

and taken to different places. Israel was conquered by Assyria

between 740 and 721 BC., and by 715 BC. all of

its people had been deported and resettled in what we now

know as Armenia, northwestern Iran, and the region

near Baku, around the southern end of the Caspian Sea. The

Assyrians brought in other people and settled them

in Samaria, the southern half of Israel's old Palestinian land, to

which the people of Israel never returned. See 2nd

Kings 17. From this time onward, the historical parts of the

"authorized" or King James version of the Bible do not

record the further history of Israel; but in the Apocrypha, 2nd

Esdras 13:39‑46 records their further journey to

"Ar Sereth" (the valley of the River Sereth, a northern tributary

of the Danube River, in modern Romania, which

still bears the name Sereth.") At the conclusion of this

deportation of Israel from its Palestinian home, the Assyrian

king Sennacherib also invaded the southern kingdom of Judah

and captured all the smaller Cities in it, everything

except Jerusalem. The people of these smaller cities were

deported, along with the people of the northern

Kingdom of Israel. Sennacherib's own record of this invasion

says that he deported 200,150 people from the

southern Kingdom of Judah. 2nd Kings 18:13 and Isaiah 36:1

mention his capture of these cities. Thus the

Assyrian deportation of Israel included the entire population of

the northern Kingdom of Israel and a considerable

representative share of the southern Kingdom of Judah. From

this time on, these people became the so‑called

"Lost Ten Tribes of Israel." (As we shall see, God took good care

of them, as he had promised, and you who are

reading this are among their descendants.)

The Kingdom of Judah on the other hand, did not go into

captivity until 606 to 585 BC., and was conquered by

Babylon, not Assyria. They were deported to the City of Babylon

and settled nearby, a little south of Baghdad, in

what is now southern Iraq.

Not quite all of them were deported, a

few of the poor being left behind to cultivate

the land, and no other people were brought in to settle the land.

(See 2nd Kings 24‑25.) This Babylonian captivity

of Judah lasted 70 years, as had been prophesied by Jeremiah

20:4‑5; 25:11‑12; 29:10. After the fall of Babylon,

King Cyrus allowed all who wished to return to Palestine,

beginning in 536 B.C., (See 2nd Chronicles 36:20‑23.)

Ezra 1‑2 records that only 42,360 returned, and their descendants

(who have never been called "Jews" until their

Babylonian conquerors gave them that name) lived in Palestine,

until the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans

under Titus in A.D. 70. This reconstructed nation, sometimes

called "Jewish" was the "70 weeks" nation with the

evil destiny "to finish the transgression," prophesied in Daniel

9:24. In AD. 70, those who had survived the terrible

wars ceased to be a nation at all, and became scattered

wanderers in all lands.

There is not one word in either the Bible or secular history to

suggest that Israel either was destroyed or that they

went down to Babylon and joined Judah in the Babylonian

captivity; and the Jews themselves testify that the

genealogy of those who returned from Babylon shows no one

from any tribe but Judah, Benjamin, and Levi, the

members of the Kingdom of Judah. To the contrary, it was well

known at the beginning of the Christian era that


history, "Antiquities of the jews" Book 11,

Chapter 5, speaks of them as "an immense multitude, beyond

the Euphrates River."

The prophetic parts of the

Bible still continue to prophecy the great future of Israel several

generations after they had vanished into the

Assyrian captivity: Isaiah prophesied until 698 BC., Jeremiah

until 588 B.C., Ezekiel to 574 B.C., and Daniel to

534 B.C. Jesus Christ was well aware of the existence of Israel,

separate and apart from Judah and the Jews; see

Matthew 10:5‑6. Again, compare John 7:35; 11:49‑52, which

cannot refer to Judah or the Jews, as the Jews

were not yet "dispersed" or "scattered abroad" and would not

be for another 40 years; only Israel was

"dispersed" out of its own land.

The complete and permanent destruction of the Jewish nation

by the Romans under Titus, and their subsequent

troubles as outcasts in every land, are not a failure of the

prophecies and promises to Israel, but an accurate

fulfillment of the prophecies about the Jews. With the history of

these nations in mind, let us examine God's

promises and prophecies about Israel in the Bible.

God's promises to Abraham were unconditional. God must fulfill

them or break His word. Consider what God

said, in Genesis 12:2; 13:16; 15:5; 17:3‑7, 19; and 22:16‑18:


I will make of thee a great nation, and I will

bless thee and make thy name great: and thou shalt be a

blessing: And I will make thy seed as the dust of the

earth; so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then

shall thy seed also be numbered. As for Me, behold,

My covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of MANY

nations. And I will establish MY covenant

between Me and thee, and thy seed after thee in their

generations, for an EVER‑LASTING COVENANT. Look

now toward heaven, and count the stars, if thou be able to

number them; and He said unto him, so shall thy seed

be. BY MYSELF HAVE I SWORN, saith the Lord . . . that in

blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will

multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand

which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess

the gate of his enemies."

God did not say that He would do this "IF" or "PERHAPS" ‑ these

were all UNCONDITIONAL promises.

Those promises which were made at Mt. Sinai on condition that

men should obey God's laws, were the promises

made through Moses, relating to health, prosperity, peace, etc.

The promises to Abraham were

UNCONDITIONAL and absolute; and in the New Testament, Paul

tells us that these "the law, which was 430

years after, cannot disannul, that It should make the promises of

none effect." (Galatians 3:17.) If the Bible is true,

if God's word is good, then these promises must be good.

God repeated these promises UNCONDITIONALLY to Isaac, in

Genesis 26:3‑5:

"Sojourn in this land and I

will be with thee, and will bless thee; for unto thee and thy seed

I will give all these countries; and I WILL


FATHER. And I will make thy seed to

multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all of

these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations

of the earth be blessed."

Again, in the 28th, and 35th chapters of Genesis, GOD REPEATED HIS PROMISES,

UNCONDITIONALLY, to Jacob, Israel our ancestor;

"I am the

Lord God of Abraham, thy Father, and the God

of Isaac, the land wheren thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to

thy seed; and thy seed shall be as the dust of the

earth; and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east,

and to the north, and to the south; and in thee

and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And

Behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all

places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this



fruitful and multiply; a nation and A

COMPANY OF NATIONS shall be of thee, and kings shall come

out of thy loins."

There can't be any evasion of these promises; and God has

always honored them. Even when the children of

Israel worshiped the Golden Calf while Moses was on Mt. Sinai,

receiving the ten Commandments, God did not

destroy them, for the sake of these promises. (See Exodus

32:7‑14.) In many places, the New Testament

recognized these promises as being still in full effect; for

example, in Hebrews 6:13,17,

"For when God made a

promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no greater, He

swore by Himself...Wherein God, being

willing more abundantly to show unto the heirs of promise the

immutability of His counsel, confirmed it with an


Again in Romans 11:1‑2; 9:4‑5; and 15:8 Paul tells us


say then, Hath God cast away his people? God

forbid! For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the

Tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away His

people which he foreknew...Who are Israelites, to whom

pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the

covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and

the promises; whose are the Fathers, and of

whom as concerning the flesh Christ...Now I say that Jesus

Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the

truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers.





THEREBY IDENTIFIED AS ISRAEL. But the separate, and very

different prophecies relating to the Jews show

that the promises and prophecies to Israel had no reference to

the Jews. Let's look at a few of them.



A CURSE. In Isaiah 65:13‑15, God tells the Jews:

"And ye shall





Who are God's servants? In many places God repeats


"But thou, ISRAEL, are MY servant . . .

Thou art My servant: I have chosen thee, and not cast thee


For example, see Isaiah 41:8‑10; 43:1, and

10; 44:1‑2, 21‑22; etc. This has been fulfilled, ISRAEL is no longer

called by its old name; but the Jews have

retained their name for "a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a

curse," as Jeremiah 24:9 says.


Isaiah 3:9 says:



declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not.

Woe unto their soul! For they have rewarded evil unto


To this day, the Jew is known by his face,

and even getting his nose bobbed can't always hide it: IT IS A

WITNESS AGAINST HIM; While Israelites are not

so marked.




Genesis 35:11; Jeremiah 31:35‑37;

33:17; Psalm 89:3‑4; Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32‑33; etc., which say,


nation and a company of nations shall be of

thee...Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by

day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the

stars for a light by night...If those ordinances depart from

before Me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel

shall cease from being a nation before Me forever... For thus

saith the Lord; David shall never lack a man to sit

upon the throne of the House of Israel."

Since the sun, moon and

stars still shine, these promises must be still in

effect; and they cannot possibly apply to the Jews, who never

were "a company of nations" and who ceased to be

a nation at all in AD. 70. On the other hand, Israel has fulfilled all

of this, as we shall see.




Jeremiah, God used the parable of the

potter making a clay bottle on the potter's wheel; and on the first

trial, the bottle was spoiled; so the potter

mashed it back into a lump and tried again, and on the second

trial he made a perfect bottle. God said that He

would re‑make Israel into the kind of nation he wanted, just as

the potter had done with the soft clay. But in the

next chapter, Jeremiah 19, God told the prophet to get an

earthen bottle which had been burned hard, and to

assemble the elders and important men of Jerusalem. Then God


"Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight

of the men that go with thee, and shall say to them, Thus saith

the Lord of hosts: Even so will I break this people

and this city, as one breaketh a potter's vessel that cannot be

made whole again."

Again in Jeremiah 15:4 and

24:29, God said of the Jews.

"And I will cause them to be

removed into all the kingdoms of the earth, because of

Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, the King of Judah, for that which

he did in Jerusalem. And I will deliver them to

be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth for their hurt, to be

a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse,

in all the places whither I shall drive them."

In fulfillment of this,

after the 70 weeks (or 490 years) of Daniel 9:24

were completed, Titus the Roman General destroyed Jerusalem

in 70 A.D. The Jews were broken as a nation,

and have had no king of their own. In John 19:15 they spoke

truly. "we have no king but Caesar."

Israel was to become a very numerous people: besides the

many statements of this in Genesis chapters 13, 15,

22, 26, and 28, it is repeated in Hosea 1:10: "yet the children of

Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which

cannot be measured or numbered. The Jews on the other hand,

were to be reduced to a remnant.

In Ezekiel 5:11‑12 God said:

"Wherefore, as I live, said the Lord God,

Surely because thou hast defiled My sanctuary with

all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations,

therefore will I also diminish thee: neither shall Mine eyes

spare, neither will I have pity. A third part of thee shall die with

the pestilence, and with famine shall they be

consumed in the midst of thee; and a third shall fall by the sword

round about thee: and I will scatter a third part

into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them."


also Jeremiah 15:4‑9, etc. The total Jewish

population of the world is estimated to be about 16 million

people, today ‑ almost exactly what it was estimated to

be just before Hitler's completely MYTHICAL massacre of six

million Jews who were not killed at all. They are not so

prolific that in 20 years they could increase their numbers by

60%, as would have to be the case if the alleged

massacre was true. To conceal this fact, the Jews now seek to

falsify the records: you will remember that in our

1960 census, it was not permitted to ask anyone his religion, so

you couldn't find out that 5,000,000 of the

supposedly dead 6,000,000 had been illegally admitted to the

United States. But this 16 million is certainly NOT

"as the stars of the heaven or as the sand which is upon the

seashore" for numbers.


IDENTITY. In Romans 11:25, Paul

comments that "blindness in part is happened to Israel." This is

fulfillment of Isaiah 42:19‑20,

"Who is blind, but

my servant? Or deaf, as My messenger that I sent?...Seeing

many things, but thou observeth not: opening the

ears, but he heareth not."

You remember that God's servant is

Israel. The Jews, on the other hand, are not blind

to their identity: they know their origin and their history;

although they try to fool you into thinking that they are

Israel, and they generally have succeeded in this deception.


 it, and in Hebrews 8:10 Paul quotes it in proof of this:

"But this

shall be the covenant that I will make with the

House of Israel: after those days, saith the Lord, I will put My law

in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts,

and I will be their God and they shall be My people."

Have the

Jews received the new covenant? Of course not?

As the beloved Apostle John said, in 1 John 2:23,

"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father."

And in John 15:23, Jesus Christ Himself said,

"He that hateth ME

hateth My Father also."












The United States is the largest civilized nation in the world; its

population is exceeded only by China, India, and

Russia; it is the richest, the most advanced, the most

benevolent in its policies, and has the greatest degree of

liberty of any large nation. Between the two world wars, the

former British Empire was officially reorganized into

the "British Commonwealth of Nations;" Canada and Australia

are independent nations. The Scandinavian and

Germanic nations are of the same blood, have largely the same

customs, and can be identified historically as the

peoples who furnished most of the population of the British Isles

and its colonies and the United States.

SECOND: THEY ARE VERY NUMEROUS, as the prophecies said

Israel would be. In the last two centuries,

the population of the United States has increased from a mere

handful to over 200,000,000 of whom about

150,000,000 are WHITE CHRISTIANS of

Anglo‑Saxon‑Scandinavian Germanic stock. In the last three

centuries, the population of the British Isles and their colonies of

Canada and Australia increased from about

5,000,000 to over 70,000,000 Anglo‑Saxons. The nations of

Germany, Austria, Holland, Denmark, Norway,

Sweden, and Finland add about 96,000,000 more. So the total

number of the

Anglo‑Saxon‑Scandinavian‑Germanic peoples is well over 300


THIRD: THEY ARE A MARITIME PEOPLE, Of the descendants of

Israel, Numbers 24:7 prophecies: "His

seed shall be in many waters:" and Psalm 89:25 says: "I will set

his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the

rivers." The world's greatest navies are those of the United

States and Britain: the greatest merchant marine fleets

are those of Britain, and Norway (and until recently, the United



Jeremiah 51:20 gives God's word:

"Thou art

my battleaxe and weapons of war: for WITH THEE will I break in

pieces the nations, and WITH THEE will I

destroy kingdoms."

Throughout history this has been true. A

century after being taken captive by Assyria, the

peoples of Israel (then generally known as Scythians) had bled

Assyria white by their constant warfare against it,

so that Assyria was an easy push‑over victory for the Medes and

Persians, just before they turned their attention

to Babylon. It was the Israel tribes on their march to Europe, as

the Visigoths, Ostrogoths, and Vandals who

crushed the Roman Empire. In 713, at Tours, Anglo‑Saxon Israel

destroyed the invading hordes of Muslins, Jews

and Moors. In the 13th Century they defeated the Tartar, Mongol,

"Jewish" Khazar hordes under Genghis Khan.

Later they conquered Turkey and Japan. Not without heavy cost;

for the promises of EASY Victory were made

through Moses and were conditional upon keeping the law. But

the promise of FINAL Victory to shatter the

enemy (even with heavy cost) is unconditional. This has been

fulfilled consistently to only one people, those whom

we identify as Anglo‑Saxon Israel.


will remember that this was one of God's

promises we found in Genesis 22:17. Obviously, this doesn't

mean a wooden gate in some person's front yard,

but the "gateways" of hostile nations the great water‑ways of

the world. Consider the fact that the Anglo‑Saxon

nations, and THEY ALONE, have power to close EVERY

important water "gate" in the world. American and

British fleets based at Scotland, the Orkney Islands, Gibraltar,

Malta, Aden, Capetown, Australia, Singapore, the

Philippines, Hawaii, San Francisco and Puget Sound, Panama,

the Falkland Islands, Hampton Roads, and Iceland;

these dominate and can close the Skagerrak and Baltic Sea, the

North Sea, the English Channel, the Straits of

Gibraltar, the Mediterranean, the Suez Canal, the Indian Ocean,

the waters around Southeast Asia and the East

Coast of Asia, the coasts of Africa and around the Cape of Good

Hope, the coasts of North and South America,

the Straits of Magellan and around Cape Horn, and all trade

routes across the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian

Oceans. They have proved this by actually doing it in two world




In Isaiah 49:8 God says:


saith the Lord: In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a

day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will

preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to

establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate


No one else has so successfully developed the

colonies which were desolate when they first occupied

them. Compare what the United States has done in its

Southwestern States with Mexico, similar land, with fully as

great undeveloped riches, separated from us by only an

imaginary line. Compare British Africa with the African

colonies of all other nations and especially compare it with the

dismal savagery of the Negroes! Compare the

development of Palestine and Iraq while under British rule, with

Turkey, Arabia, Iran, etc.



Deuteronomy 32:8 says:

    "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


Genesis 28:14 says,

"Thou shalt spread

abroad to the west, and to the cast, and to the north, and to the

south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the

families of the earth be blessed."

Isaiah 54:2‑3 tells us,


the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the

curtains of habitation; spare not, lengthen thy cords and

strengthen thy stakes: for thou shalt break forth on the

right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the nations,

and make the desolate cities to be inhabited."


colonies were established in every sea, in Europe, North and

South America, Africa, Australia‑New Zealand, and

Asia. Who else has ever had such colonies? All the ancient

empires were insignificant compared to this. Since we

have allowed the Jews to teach us to turn our backs on God, we

have unwisely abandoned our colonies; and the

chaos in the world today is largely a result of our failure to obey

God's commands to occupy and rule the

uncivilized peoples. However, even this was also prophetic

(though that is another subject.)




descendants continued on the throne in Jerusalem until King

Zedekiah was taken prisoner to Babylon, at which

time all his sons were slain. But the prophet Jeremiah took the

king's daughters, first to Egypt (as we read in

Jeremiah 43:6) and from there, by way of Spain to Ireland, where

Zedekiah's daughter, Tea Tephi, was married

to Eochaidh, the Heremon (or Chief King) of Ireland. Eochaidh

was a descendant of Zarah, one of the twin sons

of Judah, while David was a descendant of Pharez, the other


Killing all of Zedekiah's sons did not end the

dynasty, as it was established law in Israel ever since they first

entered Palestine, that when a man died leaving no

sons, his daughters received the entire inheritance. The two

king lines of the Tribe of Judah were united in this

marriage; and the lineage is clearly traced in the histories of

Ireland, Scotland, and England, unbroken down to the

present British Queen Elizabeth. Thus the prophecy that David's

descendants should always be on the throne over

an Israelite nation has been fulfilled ‑ and by the Anglo‑Saxon

nations ONLY.

This has covered but a tiny fraction of Biblical proof that the

Anglo‑Saxon‑Scandinavian, and Germanic people

are the Israel of the Bible. Scholars have found over 100

prophecies concerning Israel which have been fulfilled

by this one group of, people. When you consider that the United

Nations now recognizes over 100 member

nations, the odds against any one nation fulfilling the first of

these prophecies is obviously 100 to 1. The odds

against that same nation fulfilling both the first and second

prophecies again multiplies this by 100, making ten

thousand to one; and the odds against the same nation fulfilling

one million to one. Well, you figure it out; keep on multiplying by

100, even 50 more times. But even that isn't

all; a group of nations all the same blood have done this. Not a

random assortment, like China and Spain, or

Egypt and Brazil; but all of the same racial group. So this again

multiplies the odds. Do you think that this could

have happened by mere accident?

And if you do think that this was pure accident, then WHAT HAS


PROMISES? Was he too ignorant to know that he couldn't make

good on His word, that all the things He had

promised to Israel never got there but were all taken by other

people? No, I don't think that God made any

failures or any mistakes. He promised and Prophesied many

things about Israel. They have all come to pass; and

they have all been made good to the same racial group of


There is also the other line of proof of the identity of these

people, by tracing historically their migration into

Europe, and from there Into their colonies. But that is another

subject, much longer than the one just covered.

          WHO ARE THE JEWS?

It is so tiresome to have to repeat over and over again who the Jews are. Because of the false teaching of the Judeo-Christian clergy; the belief that the Jews are God’s people, have been so ingrained in the peoples minds that it is hard to get them to slow down long enough to examine the question without the knee jerk response they have been so well taught, by the false teachers, preachers, ministers and etc. The identification of the Anglo‑Saxon‑Scandinavian Germanic

peoples as the surviving members of the peoples of

Israel, leaves us with two other questions to answer:



    To answer these questions, we must first define what we mean

by "Jew." The muddled thinking of most people on

this subject is due to the fact that they never know just what

they do mean by "Jew" ‑ sometimes they mean a Jew

by religion, regardless of his race (for Negroes, Chinese and

Japanese have all been converted to Judaism); or

sometimes they mean a Jew by race, regardless' of his religion

(for example, Premier Ben Gurion of the Jewish

nation in Palestine is a Buddhist by religion, though a Jew by

race) ‑ and usually people don't know which of these

they do mean.

Since it can be answered quickest, let us first take the question;

was Jesus Christ a Jew by RELIGION? The

answer is clearly "NO." Jesus had the true religion of the Old

Testament, found in the Law and the prophets: and

He constantly rebuked the Jews for having abandoned this for

Judaism under the Babylonian Talmud (which in

His day was called "The Tradition of the Elders.") In Matthew

5:17‑18, he said:

"Think not that I am come to

destroy the Law or the prophets; I am not come to destroy, but

to fulfill; for verily I say unto you, till heaven and

earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the

Law till all be fulfilled.”

Jesus constantly rebuked the Jews for their apostasy, for setting

aside the Laws of God in favor of the Tradition of

the Elders. This Talmudic Judaism was very different from the

religion which we find in the Old Testament. The

late Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Chief Rabbi of the United States,

expressed it so clearly that I cannot improve on his

words. He said:





Since the true religion of the Old Testament was the religion of

the real Hebrews (NOT JEWS), the learned Rabbi

was quite right in calling it "Hebrewism" and noting that it came

to its end when the Talmud (then called the

Tradition of the Elders) was adopted; and that this WAS THE



So we read in Matthew 15:1‑9:

"Then came to Jesus Scribes and

Pharisees which were of Jerusalem, saying,

Why do Thy disciples transgress the Tradition of the Elders? For

they wash not their hands when they eat bread.

But he answered and said unto them Why do ye also transgress

the commandment of God by your Tradition? Ye

hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophecy of you, saying this people

draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and

honoreth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me. But in

vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines

the commandments of men."' (The same incident is found also

in Mark 7:5‑13).

In John 5:37‑46, Jesus told the


"The Father Himself, which hath sent Me, hath borne

witness of...Search the Scriptures: for in them ye

think ye have eternal life; and it is they which testify of Me...For had ye believed Moses, ye would have

believed Me: for he wrote of Me."

Again, in John 8:54‑55, he


"It is My Father that honoreth Me: of whom ye

    say that He is your God: yet ye have not known Him."

In John

15:23, Jesus said:

"He that hateth Me hateth My

    Father also."

In the 21st Chapter of Matthew, Jesus summed up

their position by saying that even the Tax

Collectors and the harlots could enter the Kingdom of God

before the Jews. Surely, Jesus Christ's entire ministry

was a complete demonstration that He was not a Jew by


Was Jesus a Jew by RACE? To answer this, we must trace the

racial ancestry of both Jesus and the Jews. Jesus

Christ was a pure‑blooded member of the Tribe of Judah; and no

true Judahite was a Jew by race, as we shall

see. Jesus ancestry is given in both Matthew 1 and Luke 3. Both

of them show that He was a descendant of the

Patriarch Judah, through one of his twin son Pharez; by His

mother Mary, He came through the line of David, and

Nathan, the brother of Solomon, as traced in the 3rd  Chapter of

Luke. Jesus Christ was therefore a pureblooded

Israelite, of the Tribe of Judah as Paul says in Romans 9:4‑5.

Now, let us trace the racial descent of the Jews. First, let us note

that the Jews were not ‑ and are NOT ‑

Israelites. Yes, we know that you have been taught that "Jew" and

"Israelite" were the same thing; but no greater falsehood was ever

taught, as we shall see. Let us get the first proof

of this from Jesus Christ himself. He stated plainly, in Matthew


“I am not sent but unto the Lost Sheep of

the House of Israel.”

Therefore, He was sent to those who were

of Israel; but not to others. Accordingly, when

he sent his 12 disciples out to preach His gospel, Matthew 10:5‑6

records that He told them this:

"Go not into the

way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye

not; but go rather to the Lost Sheep of the House

of Israel."

And He added,

"Ye shall NOT have gone over the

cities of Israel till the Son of man be come.”

(Matthew 10:23.)

They could have gone over all the cities of

Judea in a month; so it was obvious that the cities of

Israel, to which he referred were the cities of the so‑called Lost

Tribes who had already entered Europe in their

long migration. But take careful note of Jesus Christ's own

words: "I am not sent but unto the Lost Sheep of the

House of Israel." If the Jews were any part of Israel then they

would have been some of His sheep; but He says

that they are not.

In the 10th chapter of John, Jesus says:

"I am the good

shepherd, and KNOW MY SHEEP, AND AM


But he tells the Jews ; and it says "Jews,"

"But ye believe not, BECAUSE YE ARE

    NOT OF MY SHEEP, as I said unto you. MY SHEEP HEAR MY



Note carefully those words: He does NOT

say that the reason that the Jews are not His

sheep is that they don't believe, and that they could become His

sheep just by changing their minds: to the

contrary, He says that the reason they don't believe is that THEY


sheep, and knows that the Jews are not of His sheep.

Since the Jews are not any part of any Tribe of Israel, then WHO

ARE THE JEWS? Let's trace their ancestry.

We find that the true line of His people must be kept free from

mongrelization with the neighboring Canaanite

Accordingly, Genesis 24:3‑4 records that Abraham took great

pains to see that his son Isaac, should marry of

only a woman of his own people likewise Genesis 27:46 ‑28:1

records that Isaac also required that his son, Jacob

(the father of the Israelites) should also marry only within his

own race line. This law had been obeyed for several

centuries, to keep the race line pure. But one of the sons of

Israel, the patriarch Judah, father of the tribe of Judah,

violated it by marrying a Canaanite woman, who bore him 3

sons, of whom only one, Shelah, survived and left

descendants. (See Genesis 38:1‑5.)

This half‑breed, mongrel line

must be distinguished from Judah's

pure‑blooded descendants by his twin sons Pharez and Zarah.

Judah fathered Pharez and Zarah by his

daughter‑in‑law Tamar; although born out of wedlock, they were

of pure, Israel stock on both sides; and from

one of them, Pharez, Jesus Christ was descended. The

descendants of these twins are the real tribe of Judah.

The half‑breed son, Shelah, accompanied Judah into Egypt, and

in the following centuries left many descendants.

They were in the Exodus, and accompanied the armies of Israel

into the promised land. (See Genesis 46:12 and

Numbers 26:20).

However, they bred true to type: they were

half‑breed Canaanites, lacking the spiritual insight

which God gave to his own people, so they remained idolaters,

Baal‑worshipers, In 1st Chronicles 4:21, you will

find them referred to as "the House of Ashbea." "Ashbea" is a

corruption of "Ishbaal" ‑ "man of Baal" and shows

that they were still idolaters, unable to perceive the God of

Israel. So these Shelanites, half‑breeds, formed one of

the peoples of the land, who made up the Jews in the time of

Jesus Christ.

Another alien racial group who became part of the Jews were

the "mixed multitude" which Exodus 12:38 says left

Egypt along with the children of Israel The Hebrew word here

translated "mixed" is the word "EREB," meaning

half‑breed or mongrel. During the two centuries in Egypt, many

had violated the divine law against race‑mixing,

and these were the result.  During the Exodus, when the going

became hard in the wilderness, the Bible records that

this "mixed multitude" made a lot of trouble, and led some of the

Israelites into rebellion. (See Numbers 11:4‑6.)

This mongrelized group was still in the land after the return from

the Babylonian captivity; for we find them listed in

Nehemiah 13:3 as still in the land, and still a source of trouble.

They also were among the Jews in Christ's time.

Then there were the various Canaanite peoples who were still in

the land, chief of whom were the Jebusites, the

Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, and the Amorites When the

Israelites were about to enter the Promised Land,

God gave them specific instructions to completely drive out or

exterminate all of these Canaanites, saying:


the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou

goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations

before thee, the Hittites, and the Gergashites, and the Amorites,

and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the

Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier

than thou; and when the Lord thy God shall deliver


DESTROY THEM; thou shalt make no

covenant with them, nor show any mercy unto them...But of

the cities of these people which the Lord thy God

doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing

that breatheth: but thou shalt utterly destroy them;

namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the

Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites: as the

Lord thy God hath commanded thee." (See Numbers 33:50‑56; Deuteronomy 7:1‑6; 20:16‑18).

We know that it is fashionable among the "liberal" Judeo-Christian church members

of today to look down their noses at God, and

say, "I just can't believe in that cruel God of the Old Testament."

However, we think He will manage very well

without their belief. He always has a good reason for what He

does or tells us to do. The Bible never argues

with you about the reasons for its rules, it just states the rule:

but there is always a good reason, if you will look for

it, For about 2,000 years, the Canaanites had worshiped Baal and

Ishtar; the most immoral religion in the world,

with the possible exception of some Hindu religions even today.

Part of the worship of Baal and Ishtar consisted

of the compulsory prostitution of all the women. On certain

festival days of the year, all the women of the village

had to sit in the field outside the village gate: and any wandering

camel‑driver who came along could select the

woman of his choice, hand her the coin which she must pay

over to the temple, then take her aside and leave with

her his syphilis or gonorrhea, as the case might be. This

funneled into Palestine the venereal diseases of all western

Asia, Any Doctor can tell you that one infection of syphilis, not

cured, can produce degenerative changes in the

children for as many as four generations. But the Canaanites had

been replenishing the disease with new infections

every generation for 2,000 years; they were not physically,

mentally, morally, or spiritually fit to marry or even

associate with our people.

Therefore, God warned the Israelites

to exterminate them; if you do not, He warned

them, you will have "integration;" your children will grow up

with theirs as playmates, they will intermarry, until you

become as badly polluted as they are, and I will have to destroy

you as I am commanding you to destroy them.

But the Israelites are often soft‑hearted and soft‑headed. While

they did exterminate the people of Jericho and a

couple of other cities, the Bible records that they left most of the

others alive, merely making them pay a heavy

tribute tax. For example, the city of Jerusalem was inhabited by

the Jebusites at the time the Israelites came in.

The Bible records that the Jebusites were neither killed nor

driven out, but continued to live among the people of

the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin. (See Joshua 15:63; Judges

1:21,27‑35; and 19:10‑12; and 2nd Chronicles


Even after the people of the southern Kingdom of Judah

returned from the 70 years captivity in Babylon,

the Jebusites were still in the land, and some of the people were

intermarrying among them. (See Ezra 9:1‑2 and

Nehemiah 13:23‑29).

And the Bible records the same thing as to

the other Canaanite peoples, Further proof of

this is found in various places, such as Ezekiel 16:1‑3:


the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 'Son of

man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations, and say thus’

saith the Lord God unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and

thy Nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite.

and thy mother an Hittite."

God could not have

said this truth‑fully to any real Israelites: BUT He was NOT

saying it to Israelites: He said it to the city of

Jerusalem and her people. 'They were in large part Canaanite

Jews: and they had gained power in the manner by

which Jews usually gain it: hence Jerusalem was becoming

more and more corrupt, as most of the prophets

record. They surrounded, and because the influential advisors

of, the Kings of Judah: just as today they surround

and are the principal advisors of our President, We find clear

proof of this in Isaiah 3:8‑9, where he says:


Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongues

and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke

the eyes of His glory. THE SHOW OF THEIR COUNTENANCE


they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their

soul! For they have rewarded evil unto themselves."

Now in China, where their rulers were Chinese you couldn't say

that "the show of their countenance doth witness

against them" ‑ their faces would be just like those of the rest of

the Chinese; and in Sweden, where their ruling

class were Swedes, you couldn't say that their faces were

witness against them, for they had the same kind of

Swedish faces as the rest of the people had. But in Jerusalem,

the faces of the Canaanite‑Jebusite Jews identified

them, "were a witness against them."

The true Israelites were

not hook‑nosed. The ancient kings of Egypt,

Assyria, Babylon, and Persia were very vain about their military

conquests, and left carved stone monuments

telling how they captured this city and that one, killed so many

people and enslaved the others, etc.; and on these

monuments they usually had carved in the stone pictures of the

captive people.

Whenever they showed Israelites,

the faces had straight noses and were generally of Anglo‑Saxon

type; but when they showed Canaanites, the

faces were those of typical hook‑nosed Jews. Therefore, the

faces of the Canaanite‑Jebusite Jews who had

gained controlling power as merchants, bankers, advisors of the

King, the wealthy ruling class, identified them as

separate from the real Israelites ‑ "the show of their

countenance doth witness against them." They had brought

ruin upon the Kingdom of Judah. Now go back and read the

many places where Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel

condemn the wickedness which was found in Jerusalem; don't

you find the same conditions existing in New York,

Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C., where large

numbers of the same people have gained power

through their wealth?

    So we find that there were still large numbers of Canaanites in

the land, "integrated" with the real Israelites and

    Judahites, and bringing the lowering of standards which

integration always brings: look at the City of Washington,

    DC. for example. Besides the Jebusites in Jerusalem, the Bible

records that the other Canaanite peoples ‑ the

    Hittites, the Hivites, the Perizzites, and the Amorites ‑were not

exterminated or driven out, but merely conquered

    and made to pay a tribute tax, and left in the land to be

integrated with the people and corrupt them. So these

    Canaanites were another element of the Jews in the time of

Jesus Christ.

    You will remember that when the people of Israel left Egypt,

they were accompanied by a "mixed" ‑ mongrel

    multitude. The same is true of the return of the remnant of the

people of the Kingdom of Judah from their captivity

    in Babylon. The books of Ezra and Nehemiah record the return.

They show that the total number who returned

    was 42,360; but they also show that among these were many

who were not Israelites of any tribe; they were

    Babylonians who had come with them, in order to "get in on the

ground floor" as the saying is; and they had even

    infiltrated into the priesthood. But it says that "these sought their

register among those that were reckoned by

    genealogy, but they were not found:" When you add up the total

of all these other elements listed in Ezra and

    Nehemiah, they equal 8,381 of these alien Babylonians ‑ about

1/5 of all the people who returned from Babylon

    to Palestine. So they also formed another element of the Jews in

the land of Jesus Christ's time.

    One more, and we complete the list; that is the Edomites. You

will remember that Esau and Jacob were twin

    brothers; but Esau was a man of such low character that we

have God's own testimony, in Malachi 1:2‑3: "Was

    not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the Lord: Yet I loved Jacob, and

I hated Esau." Jacob kept the race‑line pure,

    and God changed his name to Israel and made him the father of

God's own chosen people, Israel. But Esau

    married two Canaanite wives and one Ishmaelite wife, and left

only half‑breed, mongrel children. (See Genesis

    26:34‑35; 27:46; and 36:2.) As his mongrel descendants could

not marry into the true Semitic line, he moved out

    from among them, and went down to Mount Seir, the rugged

range of mountains south‑east of the Dead Sea, and

    this land was called "Edom" (or occasionally by the Grecianized

form of the word, "Idumea"); thereafter, his

    descendants were called "Edomites." (See Genesis 33:16 and

Genesis 36:1‑9.) There they had a long and

    troublesome history. Esau's grandson was Amalek, father of the

Tribe of Amalek, who were such an evil lot that,

    in Exodus 17:14‑16, God said that He would have perpetual war

with Amalek until they were all destroyed. The

    Edomites constantly harassed the southern portion of Israel until

King Saul beat them off, about 1087 BC. But

    Saul disobeyed God's command to EXTERMINATE them, and for

this disobedience, God deposed him as king,

    in favor of David. See 1st Samuel 15:1‑26. But even David didn't

exterminate them, and there was a long history

    of wars between Edom and Israel (later with Judah.) (You will

find It in 2nd Kings, Chapters 8 and 14, and 2nd

    Chronicles, Chapters 20 and 25.) The whole book of Obadiah is

devoted to God's condemnation of Edom's

    treacherous attack upon the Kingdom of Judah when Judah was

being conquered by Babylon.

    During the Babylonian captivity of Judah, the land lay practically

empty; and during this period, the people of

    Edom, partly from opportunity and partly from pressure against

them from the east, moved into the vacant

    southern half of the old Kingdom of Judah. (See article

"Edom,"in Funk & Wagnall's New Standard Bible

    Dictionary, pages 198‑199, and Scribner's Dictionary of the Bible,

Vol. I, pages 644‑646. From this new area,

    they continued to harass the little nation which returned from

Babylon. By about 142 BC. the returned exiles of

    Judah won complete independence under the Maccabean line of

Kings; and about 120 BC. John Hyrcanus, one

    of the Maccabean kings, conquered the Edomites. He, too,

instead of exterminating them, took them into his

    kingdom, offering them full citizenship if they would give up

their paganism and adopt the religion of Judaism. This

    they did, and from 120 BC. they were full citizens of the

kingdom. (See Josephus, "Antiquities of the Jews," Book

    13, Chapter 9, and see also The Jewish Encyclopedia, article

"Edom," Vol. V, page 41.)

    By 69 BC. incompetent leadership and intrigue within the

Maccabean monarchy, together with the rising power of

    Rome in western Asia, gave opportunity to Antipater (also called

Antipas), an Edomite chieftain, founder of the

    Herodian family, to rise to power. By bribery, boldness, and

military skill, he gained the favor of Rome, and the

    Romans made him Procurator (Governor) of Judea. His son,

Herod 1st, beginning as Governor of Galilee, used the

    same methods to secure appointment as King of Judea in 40

BC.; and by 37 BC. he had gained complete control

    of Judea. He maintained himself in power by extreme

ruthlessness and by bribery, for which he taxed the people

    very heavily. (The New Deal, Raw Deal and Great Society are not

so new, after all!) This is the same Herod who

    had all the little male children in Bethlehem murdered, trying to

murder Jesus Christ.

    His son Herod Archelaus, held the Governorship (the Romans

didn't trust him with the crown) for ten years of

    astonishingly evil misrule, from 4 BC. to 6 AD.; after which the

Romans convicted him of crimes and removed

     him: and thereafter Judea was governed by Roman Procurators

(of whom Pontius Pilate was No. 6.)

    Nevertheless, the Romans left practically complete power of

local government in the hands of the Herodian

    Edomites, who had complete control of the Temple and power to

enforce all their local laws. (Remember how

    Pontius Pilate tried to get out of condemning Jesus Christ,

telling the Jews: "Take YE Him, and judge Him

    according to YOUR law." (John 18:31.)

    These Edomite Jews could say that Abraham was an ancestor of

theirs, through Esau, as they did in John 8:33;

    but this Hebrew blood through Esau had been diluted to the

vanishing point by 1700 years of marrying only

    people of Canaanite racial stocks. Therefore, Jesus Christ

rebuked them for falsely claiming to be still of

    Abrahamic (and therefore inferentially of Israelite) lineage, for

He told them, in John 8:44: "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." You should very carefully

observe the 8th chapter of John, verses 31‑47. These

    were Jews to whom Jesus was speaking, and the Bible

identifies them as Jews. In the Jewish Encyclopedia, the

    article on Edom concludes with the words "The Edomites today

are found in modern Jewry."

                 Your Heritage

                             Part 2 of 2

                By Bertrand L. Comparet


    Now, let us review for a moment what we have covered. We

have seen that Jesus Christ was NOT a Jew by

    religion, for the Jews based their religion on the Babylonian

Talmud, which was at that time called "The Tradition

    of the Elders," and Jesus Christ's whole ministry was one

constant battle against the evils of Judaism. We have

    seen that Jesus Christ was a TRUE ISRAELITE, of the Tribe of

Judah, BY RACE. And we have seen that the

    Jews of His time included the mongrel descendants of Shelah,

the mongrel "mixed multitude" which followed the

    Israelites out of Egypt, the various Cananite peoples in

Palestine, including the Jebusites, the Hittites, the Hivites,

    the Perizzites and the Amorites, NOW do you understand why

Jesus Christ, who said that He was sent only to

    "the lost sheep of the House of Israel" told the Jews that "I know

My sheep, and they know Me. BUT YE (the




in the 10th chapter of John?

    The tiny remnant of Judah and Benjamin which came back to

Palestine from the Babylonian Captivity did leave

    some descendants in Palestine; but THESE were Jesus Christ's

sheep, and He himself said He knew them, they

    knew Him, and they followed Him. All those in Palestine who

became Christians were true members of the Tribe

    of Judah or the Tribe of Benjamin, but they were NOT Jews. And

the Jews were not members of Judah,

    Benjamin, or any other Israelite tribe, for Jesus Christ Himself

said they were NOT of his sheep.

    Now we know who it was who constituted the Jews in Jesus

Christ's time. If you want to bring it down to date,

    and find out who are the Jews in our own day, we must add one

more racial element. Of course, the descendants

    of the Jews of Jesus Christ's day are among them: but there is

also another element: the KHAZARS. These make

     up the Slavic Jews of today.

    Meanwhile, we must return to the Jews of Palestine for a few

words. As you know, by AD. 68, the Romans had

    found the rascality of the Palestinian Jews so intolerable that

they began the campaign which resulted in the fall of

    Jerusalem in AD. 70. The Jews were then expelled from

Palestine, and most of them migrated in large numbers to

    what was then called Byzantium, later called Constantinople, and

today is known as Istanbul, facing the

    Bosphorus, outlet of the Black Sea. Here, they again

demonstrated the truth of the Bible's lesson, that


Christ's own words, "Ye are of your father the

    devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." By about the year

300 AD. their rascality had again become so

    intolerable that they were again expelled; and they moved

northeast, into the Khazar kingdom.

    About the year 150 AD. the Khazars, an Asiatic people related to

the Turks, migrated westward from Central

    Asia, and established a great empire which covered what is

today southwestern Russia, north of the Aral Sea, the

    Caspian Sea, and the Black Sea, including the Don and Dnieper

Valleys and the Crimea. About 740 AD. Bulan,

    the Kagan or King of the Khazars, was converted to the religion

of Judaism, together with some 4,000 of the

    most powerful nobility of the kingdom. In those days, it was not

healthful for a subject to be in a religion in conflict

    with that of the king or with the baron on whose land he lived; so

in due course, most of the Khazars became

    Jews by religion. In fact, it became part of the kingdom's

constitution that no one but a Jew by religion could be

    king. The principal languages spoken were the Khazar (called

"Yiddish" today) and Turkish. During the great

    invasion by the Mongols under Genghis Khan, many of the

Judaized Khazars were dispersed into what is now

    Poland and Lithuania. These Khazars, Jews by religion,

constitute the Slavic Jews of today, those with names

    such as Minsky and Baranov and Moscowitz; (the latter often

shortened to "Mosk") also, since much of the

    western part of this area has been at one time or another ruled

by Austrian or Germanic peoples who brought in

    their own language, these Khazars also took Germanic names,

such as Gold or Goldberg, Rosenberg, Eisler, and

    so forth. if you are wondering how they can be so much like the

other Jews, historical documents written at the

    time the Khazar empire was at its greatest height refer to their

tradition that their ancestors originally came from

    the region of Mt. Seir, which is Edom, the home of the Edomite


    If you wish to look up further details, you will find brief articles

on the Khazars in various encyclopedias such as

    the Britannica, the Jewish Encyclopedia has 6 pages on it In

some it is spelled "Khazar" and in other Chazar and

    even other variations. It is also discussed in "A History of the

Jews", by Solomon Grayzel, and "A History of the

    Jews," by Prof. H. Graetz, both works being published by the

Jewish Publication Society of America. The most

    thorough discussion of the whole problem is found in that

magnificent bit of historical research, "The Iron Curtain

     Over America," by Col. John Beatty. Col Beatty is an Historian

and Professor of History, whose works are used

    as text books in more than 700 colleges and universities. "Iron

Curtain Over America" is one of the most

    thoroughly documented and accurate works ever put in print. It

should be in the library of every patriotic

    American and good Christian.

    Perhaps you are wondering, "Why does my Bible sometimes

speak well of the Jews? Such as Paul saying in

    Romans that "the gospel of Christ . . . is the power of God unto

salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew

    first, and also to the Greek:" and in Acts, Paul saying that he was

"a Jew of Tarsus.'' If you will look up these few

    instances in a good concordance, such as Strong's you will find

that in each instance the translators have written

    the word "Jew" in English, where it was not used in the original

Greek from which they MIS‑translated it. In such

    instances, in the original Greek, the word used was "Ioudaios'

which does not mean "Jew," but simply a "Judean,"

    a person whose home is in the land of Judea, or southern

Palestine. It has no religious connotation, and it has no

    racial connotation either; it is purely a geographic term, like

"Californian." A "Californian" could be white, black,

    brown or yellow by race; and he could be Christian, Jew,

Buddhist or atheist. So also a "Ioudaios" was merely a

    person who lived in Judea, where, as we saw, there were some

few Israelites of the tribe of Judah and Benjamin;

    but there were far more Canaanite Jews, and also a general

mixture of Romans, Greeks, Syrians, Egyptians, etc.

    It is true that Christian salvation was first offered in the land of

Judea, hence to those who were living there, the

    Ioudaios; and later, as the Apostles traveled from city to city; it

was soon offered to the Greeks. But it was never

    offered to the Jews as a preferred class, for you will remember

that Jesus Christ taught only in

    hard to understand parables when there were Jews around, and

explained them privately to His Disciples,

    explaining that He spoke among the Jews ONLY in parables

"Lest at any time they should be converted, and their

    sins should be forgiven them." Both Matthew 13:10‑15 and Mark

4:10‑12 record this. Jesus was taking great

    pains to see that the Jews could not understand Christianity and

be converted. He was preaching only "to the lost

    sheep of the House of Israel" the members of the Tribes of

Judah and Benjamin, which He said were his sheep,

    who knew His voice, and followed Him. The Jews He rejected as

the children of "their father, the devil."

    Now to sum it up; the Jews are not, and never were any part of

any tribe of Israel; they include various mixtures

    of Egyptians, Babylonians and Canaanites, the Edomites, and

later the Khazars. Christ was a pure‑blooded

    Israelite of the Tribe of Judah, without any Jewish ancestry; and

He was NOT a Jew by religion.

    Now think this over carefully; the group of nations which we

loosely group under the term "Anglo Saxon,"

    (including the people of the British Isles, the Scandinavian

nations, nearly all of Germany, Holland and some few

    of the people of France and Belgium, with the closely‑related

people found in Austria, some of the Swiss, Czechs,

    some of the Hungarians, North Italians, and Spanish, and their

descendants now living in the United States,

    Canada, Australia, and South Africa) are the living descendants

of the Israel of the Bible, blood brothers of our

    Saviour, Jesus Christ!

    If you are descended from these, the true "people of the Book," ‑

"the Lost Sheep of the House of Israel" ‑

    accept gladly the Salvation and Leadership of your Risen

Saviour and King, the Lord Jesus Christ. You are called

    as Israelite Christians to stand up for righteousness and decency

in the home, the church, the community, the

    nation, and the world, as Jesus directed, ". . . teaching them to

observe all things whatsoever I have commanded

    you . . ." Don't you appreciate your Ancestry, your Salvation, and

your Calling? That truly is YOUR HERITAGE.


    It is unfortunate that most people have so many mistaken ideas

about their religion, due largely to the many

    mistranslations of words in the commonly used King James

Version of the Bible. One of these mistaken ideas is

    that most of the people of the United States and Western

Europe in fact, nearly all the Christians in the world

    are "Gentiles". You hear many of them ‑ even clergymen, who

should know better say, "I'm just a Gentile, saved

    by grace." I think it is high time that we learned something about

one of the most mis‑used words, "Gentile."

    First, you might be surprised to know that there is no such word

in the Bible, in its original languages. Oh yes, I

    know that you are now riffling the pages of your King James'

Version, looking for some of the many places you

    will find "Gentile" in it. But I said that there is no such word in


    word was put into it by translators, who changed the wording of

the Bible centuries after the last book in the Bible

    was written. If you are a good Christian, you will surely agree

with me that what the prophets originally wrote in

    the books which make up our Bible was inspired by God. It was

correct as the prophets wrote it. But not one of

    them wrote in English, remember, because no such language as

English existed until many centuries after the

    prophets lived. It was written in Hebrew, as to the Old

Testament; and the New Testament was originally written

    in the language which Jesus Christ spoke, Aramaic, a Semitic

dialect somewhat similar to, but not the same as,

    Hebrew. But Aramaic was not generally understood outside of

Western Asia; so when Christianity began to

    spread into southern and southeastern Europe, the New

Testament had to be translated into a language which was

    widely used in Europe. Greek served this purpose nicely, for it

was understood by well‑educated men over nearly

    all of Europe. Therefore, the New Testament was first translated

into Greek. Protestant English language

    translations of the Bible, today, are nearly all translated from

Hebrew manuscripts of the Old Testament and

    Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. So, let's start at the

beginning, with the Old Testament.

    The word "Gentile" is not even once used in any Hebrew

manuscript of the Old Testament, for the good reason

    that there is no such word in Hebrew, nor any word which

corresponds to it. Everywhere you find the word

    "Gentile" used in the Old Testament, it is a mistranslation of the

Hebrew word "Goi," which means "NATION".

    The plural form of it is "GOYIM". Since it means "nation," why

didn't they translate it correctly? Sometimes they

    did; but for the most part, they translated it to fit the official

doctrines of the church of their day, no matter what

   violence that did to the true meaning of the word. The church

hierarchy had long since determined what its

    doctrines should be: and if the Bible didn't agree with them, so

much the worse for the Bible. Men were still being

    burned at the stake for heresy, in those days: and "heresy"

meant any religious idea which differed from the official

    doctrines proclaimed by the Bishops. So the translators did the

best the Church would allow them to. Let's take

    some examples.

    In Genesis 12:2, God said to Abram, "I will make of thee a great

nation". In Hebrew, God said "I will make of

    thee a great GOI." It would have been too silly to translate this "I

will make a Gentile of you," so they correctly

    translated it "nation". Again Genesis 25:23. Rebekah was

pregnant with the twins, Esau and Jacob; and while still

    in her womb, the unborn children were struggling against each

other; so she wondered at this, and asked of God

    what was the meaning of this? God said to her, "Two GOYIM are

in thy womb." Certainly God was not telling

    her, "You are an adulteress, pregnant with two Gentile children,

when your husband is not a Gentile." God said

    "Two NATIONS are in thy womb," and that is the way it was

translated: but it is that same word, "GOYIM",

    which elsewhere they generally translate as "Gentiles."

    Now let's take some examples from the New Testament. Here

the word mistranslated "Gentile" is nearly always

    the Greek word, "ETHNOS" which means just exactly "NATION",

the same as the Hebrew word "GOY". Luke

    7 begins with the incident of a Roman Centurion who appealed

to Jesus Christ to heal his servant who was sick

    unto death. The Elders of the Jews praised him to Jesus, saying

"He loveth our ETHNOS, and hath built us a

    synagogue". These Jews would never praise anyone for loving

the Gentiles; and the Centurion would not have

    built a synagogue for Gentiles. So, to avoid complete absurdity,

the translators were forced to translate

    "ETHNOS" correctly, as "NATION". Again, in John 11:50, we find

that the Jewish High Priest, Caiaphas, was

    plotting with the chief priests and Pharisees, to murder Jesus

Christ; and Caiaphas told them, "it is expedient for us

    that one man should die for the people, and that the whole

ETHNOS perish not." Nothing could have pleased this

    evil Jew more than for all the Gentiles to perish ‑ using the word

"Gentile" as we do today. Therefore, the

    translators had to translate "ETHNOS" correctly, as "nation." Yet

in many other places they mistranslate it "Gentile".

    The Greek word "ETHNOS"means simply "nation", nothing more

or less. It has no pagan, or non‑Israel, or even

    non‑Greek connotation. The Greeks distinguished between

Greeks and all non‑Greek peoples, whom they called

    "Barbarians". All educated men of that day knew this, and the

Apostle Paul was a very well‑educated man, who

    was quite familiar with the Greek language and its idioms. He

recognized this distinction in Romans 1:14, where he

    said, "I am debtor both to the Greeks and to the Barbarians".

Paul, therefore, never wrote the word "Gentile" in

    any of his Epistles.

    What does this word "Gentile" mean, and from what is it

derived? It is derived from the Latin word "GENTILIS",

    which means "ONE WHO IS NOT A ROMAN CITIZEN." If you use

the word correctly, then you would have

    to say that Jesus Christ and his twelve disciples were all

Gentiles, because none of them was a Roman Citizen.

    Only Paul could say that he was not a "Gentile," because in the

22nd chapter of Acts, Paul says that he was a

    Roman citizen by birth.

    How, then, is it used at present when The speaker means to say

that someone is non‑Jewish? About the fourth

    century AD., its use was loosely extended to cover more than its

original meaning. It was applied especially to

    those who were heathen, pagan; it became a term for those who

were neither Christian nor Jewish, for Christians

    and Jews were generally called just that, (Christian; or Jew). But

this was centuries after the last book in the New

    Testament had been written.

    The word "Gentile" was never used by the writer of any book of

the Old Testament, because none of them had

    ever heard it, as they had never come in contact with Rome. It

was not used by the writer of any book of the

    New Testament, for there is no such word in the Hebrew,

Aramaic or Greek languages. They did not borrow the

    word from the Latin, for if you will look up every place it is used

in your King James' Version, you will see that it

    is never used in the correct sense, to say that someone is not a

Roman citizen; and that is the only meaning it had,

    the only way anybody used it, in those days. It was put in by the

translators in an effort to make the Bible say

    what the Translators thought it should have said. Therefore, it

has no authority at all.

    In short, wherever you see the word "Gentile" in the Bible,

remember that the correct word is "nation," "race," or

    "people". Sometimes it is used when speaking of ISRAEL

nations or the ISRAELITE race, as we have seen in the

    examples I have given you in other instances, the context will

show that it is being used of a nation which is

    non‑Israelite. Only the context in which it is used will show you

which meaning to give it. When used of

    non‑Israelite race perhaps "Gentile is as good a word as any, for

we seam to have no other in general use. But

    never be deceived by reading the word "Gentile" in your Bible,

for its only correct meaning is "nation" or "race."



    What would you say to me, or of me, if you knew I had

discovered that I was the heir to vast estates, great

    wealth, power and responsibility, and that, instead of rejoicing in

the great privilege and turning to the work with

    all its great issues, I simply said "Well, and what if I am the heir;

what difference does it make?" I know what

    you'd think, even if you didn't say it.

    Yet, when we show from the Bible, and from history and

archaeology that the Anglo‑Saxon and kindred peoples

    are the modern descendants of the House of Israel, to whom

God has pledged with His oath so many great

    privileges and blessings, many say indifferently "what

difference does it make?"

    They want only personal salvation. Now the man who has the

blessing of personal salvation is the recipient of a

    marvelous gift of God in Jesus Christ. But that doesn't warrant

his despising and rejecting the other God given

    birthright ‑ the birthright of race.

    The Bible, as given by God, is a complete whole. It stands or

falls in one piece. It declares the whole counsel of

    God and it required nothing short of the whole book to declare it.

Otherwise, much of it would not have been

    written. It is not for man to go through the Book sorting and

picking, deciding what he wishes to accept and then

    say about the rest, "what difference does it make?" To do so is

the height of presumption.

    God, in His wisdom, chose Israel to be used by Him in His great

plan for the transformation of a lost world. He

    wrote a large portion of the Bible to tell us about Israel's part in

that plan. Allowing ample space in the Bible for

    the presentation of the Gospel to the individual, God wrote about

five‑sevenths of the Book as his message to the

    nations. And related to almost every phase of this revelation, is

the great nation Israel, promised by God to Abraham.

    Infidel critics are busy all the time knifing the Scriptures, cutting

out a bit here and a bit there ‑ but the "what

    difference does it make" folks throw away five sevenths of the

Bible in one lump. Five‑sevenths is a lot of Bible to scrap!

    Actually the Israel Truth is the key which opens up the Bible

from the first promise made at the Fall, until Jesus

    delivers up the finished Kingdom to the Father. It may be likened

to a spiritual thread which runs through almost

    every chapter of Bible history, every doctrine, symbol, promise

and covenant. The thread which, when found,

    makes possible the unraveling of most of the mysteries of the

Word. This is why the people who see this truth

    have declared the Bible to be a "new book;" consistent,

harmonious and satisfying to mind and soul.

    Centuries ago God made an unconditional, irrevocable, covenant

with Abraham to increase and preserve his

    posterity throughout all generations. And now, here we are, the

many nations of Israel, right here on the planet

    after almost 4,000 years, doing the work he said Israel would do.

Psalm 105:8 says: "He remembers his

    covenant forever, the word he has commanded, to a thousand

generations: The covenant he made with Abraham,

    and his oath to Isaac. For he confirmed it to Jacob as a statute,

To Israel as an eternal covenant."

    The writers of the four Gospels constantly call attention to God's

faithfulness to Abraham. The Apostles, every

    one of them, gloried in it: but you say "what difference does it


    It made quite a difference to Esau who despised his birthright of

race. Afterwards he found no place for

    repentance, though he sought it with tears. The birthright of race

made quite a difference to Ishmael, the son of the

    bond woman, Hagar. The birthright of race also make quite a

difference to the sons of Keturah.

    "Suppose we are Israel", then we are the descendants of

Abraham through Sarah, Isaac and Jacob. There is a

    world of difference in the blessings of race, country,

enlightenment and opportunity bestowed upon the

    descendants of these than that which was bestowed upon the

others. Does the fact that a man is saved eternally,

    preclude the possibility of his appreciating the civil blessings

which he enjoys under the Abrahamic covenant in

    these Israel countries? A short stay in the lands of the dictators

would show the difference and be quite convincing.

    In Isaiah 51:2, God says "Hearken unto 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 alone, and blessed

him, and increased him." "Ye that follow after

    righteousness", are certainly the Christians and we see that God

wants them to see that they are Abraham's seed.

    In Genesis 17:7, God says, "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." Can it be possible that

    it means nothing to the believer to be chosen of God as an heir

of that covenant, which in all of its ramifications,

    God unfolds through the remainder of the Scriptures?

    "Suppose we are Israel", then we are members of the Kingdom

of God on earth. He established that Kingdom at

    Sinai. Constituting that Kingdom was twelve tribed Israel.

Matthew 21:43 tells us plainly that He took the

    Kingdom from the Jews and turned it over to a "nation." The

Greek word is "ethnos". Don't tell me it was given to

    a church for the Greek word for church is "ekklesia". That nation

was to bring forth the fruits of the Kingdom.

    Those fruits are both political and religious.

    True to Christ's assignment, the Israel nations lead the world in

evangelistic work, missionary work, Bible

    translation, publication and distribution. The United States and

the British Commonwealth holds the record for

    90% of this work.

    It is not good Bible Christianity to hug the covenant of grace so

close to our heart and that we have no room for

    God's covenant of race. That spurns the honors conferred by

God. It does not require much research to find

    many texts in which God reveals the exalted position given to

his chosen race. A few of them are:

          "But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and

He that formed thee, O Israel, for I

          have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art

mine . . . Since thou wast precious in

          my sight, thou hast been honorable and I have loved thee."

Isaiah 43:1,4

          "Thou didst separate them from among all the people of the

earth, to be thine inheritance." 1st Kings 8:53

          "For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for a

peculiar treasure." Psalm 135:4

          "For thou art a holy people (meaning set apart), the Lord thy

God hath chosen thee to be a peculiar

          people unto himself above all the nations that are upon the

earth." Deuteronomy 7:6

    Note the honors conferred: He chose them, redeemed them,

claimed them for his own, separated them, calls them

    precious, his peculiar treasure, his special people, his

inheritance above all the peoples on the earth. Think of any

    believer reading all of that and then turning upon his heel and

saying "suppose we are Israel: what difference does it make?"

    It rejects God's comfort for the last days. God was anxious that

His Israel people should have a clear vision of all

    that was to come to pass in these trying times, and

consequently, sent prophet after prophet, telling of world

    conditions which we would experience in our day. But right

along with the cataclysmic upheavals foretold, there is

    always a word of cheer, consolation and encouragement to his

people Israel. He wanted us to have the benefit of

    knowing what He is doing in the world, what the world events

actually mean, how He is going to make it all work

    out to the good of His people Israel, and through all that is

happening bring in the Kingdom of God on earth. The

    Kingdom of God on earth is the one theme of the Bible. It is the

theme Jesus preached. In Romans 15:8 Paul tells

    us that Jesus Christ came to confirm the promises made unto

the fathers.

    What is the worth of our identity with Israel? It proves God to be

unchangeably faithful. It proves the Bible to be

    literally and historically true. It proves that God is working today,

as the prophets have all foretold he would, in

    and through and for his people Israel ‑ who are the Anglo Saxon,

Scandinavian and Germanic peoples. Lastly, but

    by no means least, it proves that Jesus Christ did what he came

to do, confirm the promises made to the fathers.

               HISTORIC PROOF OF


    In my lecture called "ISRAEL'S FINGERPRINTS", I have sketched

briefly for you some of the Bible's evidence

    that the Anglo‑Saxon, Scandinavian and Germanic people of

today are the living descendants of the ISRAEL of

    the Bible. This evidence was in the form of many Bible

prophecies of Israel's future which have been accurately

    fulfilled by these nations, and by no others. If the people who

have actually done all the things which God said

    Israel would do, and who have received the exact blessings

which God said He would give to Israel ‑ if they are

    not Israel, how could God be so greatly mistaken? No, God was

not mistaken: He knew what He would do, and

    for whom He would do it; and by making good all His prophecies

and promises, He has identified these nations as


    But there are some people who won't believe God, and will not

accept His identification of these nations. In fact,

    one clergyman with whom I discussed this, minister of a church

in this county, wrote to me demanding to know

    "what other historians of the time, in what books, chapters and

verses, record their migration into Northern and

    Western Europe and the British Isles?" He is but one of many

skeptics who ask this; and to these skeptics, the

    answer is, "Yes, various historians of those centuries have

traced various steps of this migration." What I propose

    to do for you now is to race this migration historically.

Remember that, within the time limits which must

    necessarily be fixed on such a talk as this, I can only "hit the

high spots" ‑ you know how large a library can be

    filled with history books, so I can't quote them all verbatim. But I

will have time enough to show you that the

    historians have traced this migration from Israel's old Palestinian

home into their European homes as the

    Anglo‑Saxon, Scandinavian and Germanic peoples. Not under

their old names, of course but that, also is the

    fulfillment of God's prophecy that He would "call His servants by

another name," and surely you now know that

   the Bible identifies Israel ‑ and only Israel ‑ as God's servants.

    The migration of the Israelites covered about 12 centuries,

during which time they were mentioned by various

    historians, writing in different languages, during different

centuries ‑ and therefore mentioned under different

    names. Even today, if you were to read a London newspaper

 a Paris newspaper, and a Berlin newspaper, all

    dated about the end of 1940, you would find that the British

newspaper said that in that year France was invaded

    by "the Germans," the French newspaper said that the invasion

was by "les Allemans;" and the German

    newspaper said that the invasion was by "der Deutsch" ‑ yet all

three were talking about the same people and the

    same invasion. Likewise, we must not be surprised to find that

the Israelites were given different names in the

    Assyrian, Greek and Latin languages. Likewise, even in the

same language, names change from century to

    century, just as today we never speak of "Bohemia", as it was

called only a century ago, but only of "Czechoslovakia."

    You remember that the original 12 ‑ tribed nation of Israel broke

up into two nations upon the death of king

    Solomon, about 975 BC. The northern 2/3 of the land, containing

ten Tribes, kept the name "Israel," while the

    southern 1/3, containing the Tribes of Benjamin and Judah, with

many of the Levites, took the name of "Judah"

    after the royal Tribe. From that time on, they kept their separate

existence until they were finally merged into a

    vast migration, as we will see.

    Most of the kings of the 10 tribed northern kingdom of Israel

were distinguished more for their wickedness than

    for any ability. However, OMRI, who reigned from 885 to 874 BC.,

was a vigorous and able king ‑ although as

    wicked as the others ‑ and his reign was regarded among the

other nations of western Asia as the foundation upon

    which the national identity thereafter rested. The languages of

that day spoke of a family, a Tribe, or even a whole

    nation as a "house" or household. If you have read your Bible

much, you must surely remember God's many

    references to the "House of Israel" or "House of Judah" ‑

meaning, in each case, the Kingdom of Israel or the

    Kingdom of Judah. But the phrase was also used in those days

to refer to a nation as the "House" of a great king

    who ruled it. The Assyrians, among others, began calling the 10

tribed Kingdom of Israel "the House of Omri". In

    Hebrew, "house" was "bahyith" or "bayth" ‑ in English usually

spelled BETH and pronounced "BETH". In the

    related Semitic language of Assyrian, this was "BIT". The

Hebrew "OMRI" was in Assyrian sometimes written

    "HUMRI", sometimes "KUMRI."

    With this preface in mind, let's start tracing the Israelites from

their Palestinian homeland, in the Assyrian conquest

    and deportation. In 2nd Kings 15:29 we read, "In the days of

Pekah, king of Israel, came Tiglath‑Pileser, king of

    Assyria, and took Ijon and Bel‑beth‑maachah and Janoa and

Kedesh and Razor and Gilead and Galilee, all the

    land of Naphtali, and carried them captive to Assyria." In 1st

Chronicles 5:26 it says, "And the God of Israel

    stirred up the spirit of Pul, king of Assyria, and the spirit of

Tiglath‑Pileser, king of Assyria, and he carried them

    away, even the Reubenites and the Gadites and the half‑tribe of

Manasseh, and brought them unto Halah and

    Habor and Hara and to the River Gozan, unto this day."

    Confirmation of this is found in inscriptions of Tiglath‑Pileser

which archaeologists have dug up and are in our

    museums today. One of these says: "The cities of Gala'za

(probably Assyrian for Galilee), Abilkka (probably

    Assyrian for Abel‑beth maacha), which are on the border of

Bit‑Humna"  the whole land of Naphtali in its

    entirety, I brought within the border of Assyria. My official I set

over them as governor. "The land of Bit Humna"

     all of its people, together with all their goods, I carried off to

Assyria. Pahaka their king they deposed, and I

    placed Ausi as king." In confirmation of this change of kings, we

read in 2nd Kings 15:30, "And Hoshea the son of

    Elah made a conspiracy against PEKAR son of Remaliah and

smote him and slew him, and reigned in his stead."

    The conquest thus begun in the northeastern and northern parts

of the kingdom about 740 BC. worked

    southward, down to the heavily‑fortified capital city of Samaria,

which was captured about 721 BC. Another king

    of Assyria reigned, by that time. 2nd Kings 18:9‑11 records it as

follows: "And it came to pass in the 4th year of

    King Hezekiah (of Judah), which was the 7th year of Hoshea, son

of Elah, King of Israel, that Shalmanezer, King

    of Assyria, came up against Samaria and besieged it. And at the

end of 3 years they took it, even in the 6th year

    of Hezekiah, that is the 9th year of Hoshea, King of Israel,

Samaria was taken. And the King of Assyria did carry

    away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in Habor by

the River of Gozan, and in the cities of the

    Medes." We know that king Shalmanezer died toward the latter

part of this siege, and the final conquest and

    deportation were carried on by his successor, King Sargon 2nd.

In confirmation of this, an inscription of Sargon 2nd

    says, "In the beginning of my reign, the City of Samaria I

besieged, I captured. "27,280 of its inhabitants I carried away."

    The deportation of a whole nation naturally took a considerable

period of time. The journey had to be organized,

    with adequate supplies for each convoy on each stage of the

journey, and proper organization of the places

    selected to receive them. We know that Sargon 2nd did not hold

"the cities of the Medes" east of the Zagros

    mountains until a few years after 721 BC., so about 715 to 712

BC. is the correct date for the deportation to

    Media. The places to which Israel was deported by the Assyrians

can be summed up in brief as constituting an

    arc or semi‑circle around the southern end of the Caspian Sea.

    This deportation took in the entire population of the ten northern

Tribes constituting the nation of Israel. From this

    point on, the separation into Tribes is apparently most, and it is

as a nation that the Kingdom of Israel moved into

    its Assyrian captivity.

    This left the other 2 tribes still living in the southern Kingdom of

Judah. Assyria and Egypt were the two giant

    empires of that day, each seeking domination over all the

smaller and weaker nations. Assyria had driven Egyptian

    influence out of western Asia, back to the continent of Arica, and

had made all the smaller nations surrounding

    Judah into vassal states paying heavy tribute to Assyria. The

brutal arid rapacious character of the Assyrians made

    them no friends, and their vassal states were always hopefully

looking for any means of escape from Assyrian

    power. Egypt kept the hope of revolt alive by offers of military

assistance to those who would rebel against

    Assyria. The death of a king seemed the most opportune time

for revolt, since his successor would need time to

    get his power organized, and might even face some competition

at home for his throne, Therefore, when king

    Sargon 2nd of Assyria died, about 705 BC., revolts began in

western Asia, the Kingdom of Judah under king

    Hezekiah taking part in it, in the hope of military aid from Egypt

(although the prophet Isaiah warned that the

    revolt would fail).

    The new king of Assyria, Sennacherib, set about recovering his

empire; one rebellious city after another was

    reconquered, with the hideous cruelty characteristic of Assyria;

and in 701 BC., Sennachenib's huge army invaded

    the kingdom of Judah; midway through it, they paused briefly to

defeat the Egyptian army, then moved on to

    besiege Jerusalem. None of the smaller cities of Judah were

able to resist. 2nd Kings 18:13 and Isaiah 36:1 say

    that "In the 14th year of King Hezekiah, Sennacherib came up

against all the fortified cities of Judah, and captured

    them." Then followed the siege of Jerusalem, which was ended

when the angel of the Lord killed 185,000

    Assyrian soldiers in one night, and Sennacherib gave up the

siege and fled back to his own land. In confirmation

    of this, Sennacherib's own record of this says, "I then besieged

Hezekiah of Judah, who had not submitted to my

    yoke, and I captured 46 of his strong cities and fortresses, and

innumerable small cities which were round about

    them. with the battering of rams and the assault of engines, and

the attack of foot soldiers, and by mines and

    breaches made in the walls. I brought out there from 200,150

people, both small and great. "Hezekiah himself,

    like a caged bird, I shut up within Jerusalem his royal city."

Ancient kings were boastful of their victories,but never

    of their defeats: so king Sennacherib tactfully fails to state how

the siege of Jerusalem ended. But he does confirm

    the capture of all the other cities of Judah, and the deportation

therefrom of 200,150 people.

    Remember that all the people of the 10 northern tribes were

already settled around the south end of the Caspian

    Sea, in the Assyrian deportation of Israel; now to them was

added a large portion of the 2 southern Tribes of

    Benjamin and Judah; so that the Assyrian deportation included

all of the ten Tribes and a substantial

    representation from the other 2. These were the people who

became your ancestors and mine, when they moved into Europe.

    Over the years, the increasing numbers of the Israelite tribes

expanded northward along both sides of the Caspian

    Sea. They were not basically city‑builders but farmers and

herdsmen. Probably in the earlier part of their stay

    here,the Assyrians sternly discouraged the building of cities,

which would naturally be fortified centers of

    resistance. As they were moved into this area, herded along as

prisoners, robbed of all their belongings, they had

   to make themselves brush shelters or booths where they

stopped for any length of time, Here in the southwest our

    Indians call such a brush shelter a "wickiup''; the Hebrews called

it a "soocaw'' ‑ applying the name also to a tent.

    It was the only house a nomad owned. The plural of "soocaw"

was "succoth". Gradually this was slurred over into

    "Scuth", used of a ten‑dweller or nomad, and finally became


    The great carving on the Behistun Rock made about 516 BC.

carried inscriptions showing the many different

    nations who were tributary to King Tarius 1st of Persia. These

inscriptions were written in Old Persian. in Median,

    and in Assyrian. They showed that among these were a Scythian

nation called in Assyrian and Babylonian

    "Gimiri", which means "The Tribes From "Gimiri" was derived

the name of the "Cimmerians", who settled

    somewhat to the north and into the Ukraine. But the Behistun

Inscriptions also stated that these people were

    called "Sakka" in Persian and Median. Already the later names

are beginning to evolve.

    The great Greek historian HERODOTUS, who lived from 484 to

425 BC., and who is generally called "The

    Father of History", speaking of these people, says, "The Sacae,

or Scyths, were clad in trousers, and had on their

    heads tall, stiff caps, rising to a point. They bore the bow of their

country and the dagger; besides which they

    carried the battle‑axe or sagaris. They were in truth Amyrgian

Scythians, but the Persians called them Sacae, since

    that is the name which they give to all Scythians." Incidentally,

some of the magnificent carved walls of the ancient

    ruins of the Persian palace at Persepolis show illustrations of

those Sacae, in their trousers and pointed caps,

    bringing tribute to the Persian king.

    We are now getting further clues to these people. Herodotus

says that the Scythians or Sacae first appeared in

    that land in the seventh century BC., which is the same period in

which the Tribes of Israel were settled there by

    their Assyrian conquerors. Their use of the battle‑axe as a

weapon is a carry‑over from their history as Israel. In

    Jeremiah 51:20 God says of Israel, "Thou art My battleaxe and

weapons of war, for with thee will I break in

    pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy kingdoms". We

will see later that the name evolved from SAKKE

    to SAXON; and it is noteworthy that the battle‑axe was the great

weapon of the Saxons.

    These Scythians or Sacae lived up to God's description of Israel

as His battleaxe and weapons of war. They

    became a military people of great power, who did much to break

up ancient nations. The Greek geographer and

    historian, STRABO, who lived between 63 BC. and about 21

AD.,says: "Mostof the Scythians, beginning from

    the Caspian Sea, are called 'Dahae Scythae' and those situated

more towards the east, 'Massagatae' and 'Sacae';

    the rest have the common name of 'Scythians', but each tribe

has its own peculiar name. The Sacae had made

    incursions similar to those of the Cimmenans and Treres, some

near their own country, others at a greater

    distance. They occupied Bactriana, and got possession of the

most fertile tract in Armenia, which was called after

    their own name, Sacasene. They advanced even as far as the

Cappadocians, those particularly situated near the

    Euxine Sea (Today called the Black Sea), who are now called


    This was but the early part of their expansion, however. when a

century had elapsed since their deportation to this

    land of Scythia, they had grown strong enough to begin the long

series of harassing wars against their conquerors,

    the Assyrians. They lacked the strength to capture the

powerfully fortified group of cities about the Assyrian

    capitol; and in turn, their nomadic habits made it easy for them

to retreat before a too‑powerful Assyrian army.

    But generations of this constant warfare wore down the

Assyrians, "bled them white", so that when the Medes

    finally overran Assyria and captured Nineveh in 612 BC., their

victory was a fairly easy one against the exhausted


    From this point on, I could refer you to just one historical work

which fully traces the Scythians on to their

    settlement in England as the Anglo‑Saxons. "A History of the

Anglo‑ Saxons", by Sharon Turner does a

    magnificent job of this. As most of you know, I am a lawyer by

profession: and a lawyer soon learns to distinguish

    between the man who actually knows the facts and the man who

is merely repeating hearsay ‑ that is, gossip and

    rumor he has heard from others ‑ and how do we know whether

these others actually know what they are talking

    about? Unless a man has seen the occurrence with his own

eyes, his ideas on the subject are no better than the

    accuracy of the information he has received. Now no historian

living in our times can have any personal

    knowledge of what happened 2,000 years ago, so his writings

can be no better than the source material he has

    obtained from people who lived and wrote at a time when

accurate information could still be had. Most modern

    history books are based on rather scanty documentation from

many sources, as it is so much easier for one historian

    to copy from another. But Sharon Turner's "History of The

Anglo‑Saxons" is one of the most thoroughly

    documented historical studies ever produced, and its reliability

is beyond question. He traces the Anglo‑Saxons of

    Britain back to the Scythians; unfortunately, he doesn't go the

one step further and trace the Scythians back to

    Israel; but we can do that from other sources.

    But let us go back to the Scythians, as the people of Israel

became known in the land to which they were

    deported. Diodorus Siculus, a Greek historian who lived in the

times of Julius and Augustus Caesar, says this:

    "The Scythians anciently enjoyed but a small tract of ground, but

(through their valor) growing stronger by

    degrees, they enlarged their dominion far and near, and attained

at last to a vast and glorious empire, At the first, a

    very few of them, and those very despicable for their mean

origin, seated themselves near to the River Araxes.

    Afterwards, one of their ancient kings, who was a warlike prince

and skillful in arms, gained to their country all the

    mountainous parts as far as to Mount Caucasus. "Sometime

afterwards, their posterity, becoming famous and

    eminent for valor and martial affairs, subdued many territories."

"Then they turn their arms the other way, they led

    their forces as far as to the River Nile, in Egypt."

    Other historians record that BLOND SCYTHIANS made an

expedition against Palestine and Egypt about 626

    BC. The town of Scythopolis, in the Jordan valley, is named for a

settlement made on this raid. But to continue

    with Diodorus Siculus, he says, "This nation prospered more and

more, and had kings that were very famous;

    from whom the SACANS and the Massagetae and the

Arimaspians, and many others called by other names

    derive their origin. Amongst others, there were two remarkable

colonies that were drawn out of the conquered

    nations by those kings the one they brought out of Assyria and

settled in the country lying between Paphlagonia

    and Pontus; the other out of Media, which they placed near the

River Tanais which people are called Sauromatians."

    Note how God's destiny for these people worked. They would

not leave behind any pockets of their people in the

    lands where their conquerors had settled them; but when they

had gained great power, they came back and

    picked up any who remained, taking them into the migrating

mass. Likewise, history records that they raided

    Babylon, after its overthrow by the Medes and Persians, carrying

off with them such of the people of Judah and

    Benjamin as were not going back to Jerusalem.

    Even in early times, before the final mass movement into

Europe, the Scythians had begun their march to their new

    homelands, where some of them had already arrived before the

beginning of the Christian Era. Pliny the Elder, a

    Roman historian who lived from 23 to 79 AD., says this: "The

name 'Scythian' has extended in every direction,

    even to the Sarmatae and the GERMANS; but this ancient name

is now only given to those who dwell beyond

    those nations, and live unknown to nearly all the rest of the

world. "Beyond (the Danube) are the peoples of

    Scythia. The Persians have called them by the general name of

Sacae, which properly belongs only to the nearest

    nation of them. The more ancient writers give them the name of

Aramii (Arameans). The multitude of these

    Scythians is quite innumerable; in their life and their habits they

much resemble the people of Parthia (Persia). The

    Tribes among them that are better known are the Sacae, the

Massagetae, the Dahae," etc.

    Others have noted this early migration into Germany. For

example, Herodotus mentions a migration and

    settlement of a people he calls the Sigynnoe, who themselves

claimed to be colonists from Media, and who

    migrated as far as the River Rhine. (Remember that among the

places the Israelites were resettled were "the cities

    of the Medes"?)

    Also note that Pliny the Elder said that "The more ancient writers

give them the name of Aramii" ‑ that is,

    "Aramean", in modern language called "Syrian." In

Deuteronomy 26:5, every Israelite was commanded to confess

    and sojourned there with a few, and became a nation, great,

mighty and populous." Hence, such ancient writers

    could correctly identify the Israelite Scythians as "Arameans",

for they had come from a land which was part of Syria.

    Among the Tribes of the Scythians, the Massagetac attracted the

notice of all the ancient historians, by their

    numbers and warlike ability. Those who described them in more

detail divided them into the Massagetac and

    Thyssagetae; and the "getae" part of the name soon evolved

into "Goth"; the Massagetae were the Greater Goths

    and the Thyssagetae were the Lesser Goths. Thus we already

find among the Scythians names we can identify as

    the people who later conducted the great migrations into

Europe. The Goths, as we know, were later called

    "Ostrogoths," meaning "East Goths," and "Visigoths," meaning

"West Goths."

    But to go back a few centuries, the Sacae were allies of the

Medes and Persians in the attack upon Babylon, in

    536 BC. Remember that God had said that Israel was "My

Battleaxe and weapons of war; for with thee will I

    break in pieces the nations, and with thee will I destroy

kingdoms." So God had used Scythian Israel to maintain

    constant war against Assyria for nearly a century, until Assyria

was too weakened to resist the Medes and

    Persians; then God used Scythian Israel, the Sacae, to help in

the conquest of Babylon, when its time had come.

    Later, King Cyrus of Persia was foolish enough to try to conquer

his former allies, the Sacac; but he was killed in

    the battle. King Darius also tried to conquer them, but they being

a nomadic people, retreated before his massive

    armies until he gave up and retired.

    Professor George Rawlinson says that the original development

of the Indo‑European language took place in

    Armenia ‑ which, you will remember, was at that time occupied

by "Scythian" Israel. Certainly from these people

    we can trace the introduction of this language into Europe.

    This powerful and increasingly numerous people thereafter

spread further north, both east and west of the Caspian

    Sea. To the west of it, they penetrated into the Volga and Don

River Valleys as the Sauromatians and the Royal

    Scyths, nomadic peoples. To reach these lands, they had come

up through the Caucasus Mountains by a great

    pass which is today occupied by the Georgian Military Road.

Perhaps the Communists have changed the name of

    this pass in recent years, but from ancient times until without

our own lifetimes this pass was known as "The Pass

    of Israel." The white Race of Europe is often called "Caucasian"

because the ancestors of many of them did thus

    come out of the Caucasus Mountains.

    When Alexander the Great began his great marauding

expedition across western Asia and as far as India, he had

    to skirt the edge of the lands held by the Scythians. In his

limitless vanity and ambition, he wanted also to conquer

    them; but it is recorded that their ambassadors said that they

would never surrender to him; that they were

    nomadic peoples who, if they could not resist, could retreat

indefinitely before his armies; and they had no wealthy

    cities for him to occupy and loot. Alexander invaded their lands

long enough to fight one severe battle with them,

    defeating the Scythians forces he met; but this was evidently

just as a lesson to them not to attack the flanks of his

    forces, for he led his forces out of their territory and never

returned to the attack.

    Remember that Israel is "God's battleaxe and weapons of war."

They had already weakened Assyria, and as allies

    of the Medes and Persians had helped overthrow Assyria and

Babylon. They had beaten off attempts of the

    Persians to conquer them. In the article "Scythians", Chambers

Encyclopedia (1927) records that "The Scythians,

    after about 128 B.C. overran Persia, routed several Persian

armies, and levied tribute from the Persian kings.

    During the first century before and the first century after Christ,

hordes of Scythians, having overthrown the

    Bactrian and Indo‑Greek dynasties of Afghanistan and India,

invaded northern India: and there they maintained

    themselves with varying fortune for five centuries longer. "The

Jats of India and the Rajputs have both been

    assigned the Scythian ancestry." Madison Grant writes that

"Ancient Bactria maintained its Nordic and Aryan

    aspect long after Alexander's time, and did not become

Mongolized and receive the sinister name of Turkestan

    until the seventh century (AD.). The Saka were the blond

peoples who carried the Aryan language to India."

    A land so vast, and not the original home of the Israelite

Scythians, but already having some inhabitants when they

    were settled there, must of course show varying types of

people. The Nordic or Aryan Israelite Scythians

    conquered these other races. while some speak of a Mongoloid

type found in some parts of Scythia, ancient

    writers pretty well agree that the dominant Sakka or Massagetae

Scythians were a Nordic people. Dr. Hans

    Gunther, professor at Berlin University, in his "Racial Elements

of European History," published in the 1920s, says:

    "The investigations into the traces left behind them by that

wide‑spread Nordic people, the Sacae (Scythians),

    with its many tribes, are well worthy of attention. It had been

living on the steppes of southeastern Europe, and

    spread as far as Turkestan and Afghanistan, and even to the

Indus. The ancient writers, such as Polemon of

    Ilium, Galienos, Clement of Alexandria, and Adamantios, state

that the Sacae were like the Kelts and Germans,

    and describe them as ruddy‑fair. The Scythian tribe of the Alans

are also described as having a Nordic

    appearance. Ammianus (About A.D. 330‑400) calls them, almost

all tall and handsome, with hair almost yellow,

    and a fierce look.'"

    We have seen that the names of the Massagetae and the

Thyssagetae evolved into Goths, the Ostrogoths (or East

    Goths) and Visigoths (or West Goths). The historian Ptolemy,

who died about 150 AD., mentions a Scythian

    people, descended from the Sakae, by the name of SAXONS,

who had come from Media. Albinus, who lived in

    the first century BC., also says, "The SAXONS were descended

from the ancient Sacae in Asia, and in process

    of time they came to be called SAXONS." Prideaux reports that

the Cimbrians came from between the Black and

    Caspian Seas, and that with them came the ANGLI.

    We are now well into established European history. By the

beginning of the 4th century AD., many of the Goths

    were already Christians. In the 4th century there were several

collisions between Visigoths and Rome, and in 410

    the Visigoths became the masters of Italy and captured Rome.

Later, they moved on into Southern France and

    northern Spain where they settled permanently. The Ostrogoths

settled in what is modern Hungary about 455

    AD.; under Theodoric the Great, they conquered Italy about 493,

and set up an Ostrogoth kingdom in Italy,

    which, however, was short‑lived. Their descendants are the

fair‑skinned and blond Italians of northern Italy. But

    the Goths had ended the Roman Empire: "God's battleaxe"

again destroying the kingdoms of the Babylonian order

   of empires.

    The Angli and the Saxons moved up the Danube Valley and

settled in Germany and along the Baltic shores, as is

    well known; and from there, the Jutes, Angles and Saxons

colonized England after the Roman legions were

    withdrawn in AD. 408.

    Actually, the earliest waves of migration penetrated to the

farthest edges of the European continent ‑ partly

    because they could move through nearly empty lands, without

meeting any peoples strong enough to effectively

    resist them, partly because they were pushed farther by the

later waves of Israelite migration coming behind them.

    Hence, we find the settlement of the Scandinavian Peninsula

pretty well completed before the arrival of the Jutes,

    Angles and Saxons along the southern shore of the Baltic Sea.

    The Tribes which settled along the shores of the Baltic were a

great maritime people ‑ as some of the Israelites

    had been even when still in Palestine, and as God had

prophesied. The Jutes, Angles and Saxons came from

    within the Baltic Sea, but their ocean‑borne raids on England

were heavy and continuous; later, by invitation of the

    British, they settled along the eastern shores, in East Anglia,

Mercia, Northumbria, Sussex, Wessex, Essex, and Kent.

    William the Conqueror invaded England in 1056, with the

Normans; they were actually Norse Vikings who had

    settled on the coast of France in the province of Normandy:

"Norman" being really derived from "Norseman."

    So we see that the migrations of Israel, first into Scythia,

expanding there, then gaining the names of Goths, Angli

    and Saxons, and under those names moving into their present

European homelands, is a well established historical

    fact. There is also the fascinating story of the early migrations by

sea, but that is another subject in itself.
