'THERE IS NONE LIKE UNTO THE GOD OF JESHURUN,
WHO RIDETH UPON THE HEAVEN IN THY HELP,
AND IN HIS EXCELLENCY ON THE SKY.
THE ETERNAL GOD IS THY REFUGE,
AND UNDERNEATH ARE THE EVERLASTING ARMS;
AND HE SHALL THRUST OUT THE ENEMY FROM BEFORE THEE; AND SHALL SAY, DESTROY THEM.
ISRAEL THEN SHALL DWELL IN SAFETY ALONE;
THE FOUNTAIN OF JACOB SHALL BE UPON A LAND OF
CORN AND WINE;
ALSO HIS HEAVENS SHALL DROP DOWN DEW.' (DEUTERONOMY 33:26-28)

LOST ISRAEL FOUND
(Taken from the book Series I, and Book I, by C.A.L. Totten)
Our author said this in 1890:..'This is the day in which to spread a truth, and give it to the world.' Here at the end of the age in December of 1978 as knowledge has increased, and is still increasing every day, I beg our authors permission to bring even more enlightenment to his words if possible. If our author were to rewrite his book today I feel that he would say:...'This is the day in which to spread truth, and give it to the people of YAHWEH'S Kingdom. The reason for this being that he would realize that the world (order) is falling, and as it falls then we see the tares standing up above the bowed wheat...ripe for harvest.
Probably few questions have so frequently enlisted the deep religious interest, particularly of the Anglo-Saxon race as that which surrounds the fortunes of the 'LOST TRIBES OF ISRAEL'. Blindness in part has kept this race from making distinctions between people more clear, for there is a blood relationship, and lineal genealogy involved in the revelations dawning on us, that will link up to a mighty Race, and pledge to us a grander destiny. In this respect then when following this Race in our Scriptures we must make a distinction between 'The House of Israel', and 'The House of Judah', and the Jews.
Ever since 721 B.C., the final day of the deportation into Media, this has been an impenetrable mystery as to the fate of' The Lost Tribes of Israel'. In a most subtle manner the Bible has itself, increased the zest with which, from the first days of printing down to our time, the search for the 'Lost Tribes of Israel' had been prosecuted. The interesting thing about this, as we find from our scriptures is that;...it was only after the full consummation of the decree of exile had passed upon them that they do come into special prominence in the Holy Writ. Not only were most of the prophecies of the Sacred Writ uttered after the separation from the Southern Kingdom of Judah, but the bulk of them were spoken after the ten tribed Kingdom of Israel had been lost for over a hundred years.
* * * Here we must remember that as the 'House of Israel', this Northern Kingdom went into captivity, that according to Halley's Bible Handbook, and our own Holy Scriptures, that Sennacherib, King of Assyria besieged Jerusalem but did not take the city. (II Kings 19:35-36) But in II Kings 18:13, we are told that Sennacherib, King of Assyria came up against the fenced cities of Judah and took them. In the Oriental Institute Museum in Chicago, Illinois, here in these United States, you find Sennacherib's own account of this invasion on a clay tablet which Sennacherib, Himself made. On this clay tablet it says:...As for Hezekiah, king of Judah, who had not submitted to my yoke, 46 of his fortified cities, and smaller cities without number...with my battering rams, engines, mines, breaches, and axes, I besieged and captured...200,150 people, small and great, male and female, and horses, mules, asses, camels, sheep and oxen without number I took as a booty. Hezekiah himself, I shut up like a caged bird in Jerusalem. Thus with the Northern House of Israel we find that a large number of the Southern House of Judah also went into captivity at that time, leaving in that area mostly those in the city of Jerusalem. * * * *
Now; according to our scriptures, these people of God's Israel would have blessings to come upon them in their 'Lost State', and these blessings are to be found upon them as they are found. There is a mystery here that runneth like a romance, for their blessings overtook them in disguise. They had forgotten Moses and YAHWEH long before even their banishment began, so their memory was soon despoiled of all remaining traces of their land of birth. Their repentance had however begun almost as soon as they reached Media, but it was undefined and anxious. Baal worship, and evil religion was dethroned, and the ONE Great God of Justice whose very name they had forgotten, and whose attributes they could but poorly formulate, was RAISED INTO HIS SEAT.
Thus in the crucible of sore experience the fathers with changed hearts, transmitted to their children better ones, hearts more filled to approve the right, and serve a quickened conscience. So generations passed and God who had prepared them for Himself thus wondrously accepted them, but touched not their eyes. But suffered them to remain in blindness to their origin for purposes not yet developed in the plot of History. Thus these people of the tribes of Israel and their kindred with them never returned to Palestine, and were not there at the time of the Crucifixion of The Christ.
WHERE OH WHERE ARE THE HEBREW CHILDREN? They have sung this in every land, but they have found them not. Strange Paradox...a nation searching for itself. Christians with an open Bible read Christs message: (Matthew 10:5-6)
'Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel,'...and still they do not find them. But the entire search for 'LOST ISRAEL' has been conducted upon the most mistaken premises, and naturally it has been fruitless.
For centuries God's word has announced certain 'signs' as such by which His Israel would be found in the latter days. They were to be lost in the wilderness of the world (order) and while hidden there, were to acquire these 'marks'. At length they are to be manifested, and the WORD declares that they will be found. They were to be sifted among all nations, like as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain (stone) fall upon the earth. (Amos 9:9)....The Kingdom of God would be taken from those holding it in Judea, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. (Matthew 21:43-44)...I shall make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast off a strong nation; and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even forever.
As the Kingdom of Israel decreased to a remnant in the land of old Judea, 'Lost Israel' would increase into a strong Kingdom...many nations..but One Kingdom, and thus as 'Isaac's sons' in the broadest sense...A Great and Mighty RACE.
Then comes the blindness of this Race, as they fail to make the distinction between the people of This Book--The Bible. They fail to distinguish between The House of Israel, the House of Judah..still all of the children of Israel, the sons of Isaac, and Jacob, and yes of Abraham, and then the people now called Jews who were the last to leave old Judea in 70 A.D., these people who never lost their identity and have no part in Israel.
In blindness, it is reckoned by some that the Jews are a part of Judah, in fact some say that they are all of Israel that is left in the world today. But when you consider Isaac's sons...God's Israel as a race..you see that there has to be a difference in the people of the BOOK.
Let us look at some of these 'Way marks of Scripture':....
* A Northern power occupying the Isles of the Sea. (Isaiah 24:14-15) (Isaiah 50:1-6) and (Jeremiah 31:8-10)
* A nation and a company of nations. (Genesis 35) The promise now delivered to Jacob-Israel, and today we see this as...America the Great Nation, and Great Britain as the company of nations. And true of each branch, the one with its general and state governments, the other with its Empire and independent Dominions.
* They must be a great multitude, as sands...innumerable because of the multitudes. (Numbers 23:10 and Romans 9:26-27)
* Chief of the Nations. (Isaiah 51 and Jeremiah 31:7)
* They must be in possession of the 'desolate heritages' of the earth. The new worlds discovered since 1492 were desolate unto then. (Deuteronomy 33:17)...for they own the 'ends' and the 'sides' and the 'uttermost parts of the earth.'
* Having the heathen for an inheritance...as Britain moved out in her colonization years.
* Pushing the aborigines before them into the corners of the earth, as Britain and America have done. Altho it is often held up against the Saxon system, and yet it was seen of old, so that these aborigines eventually die out..rather than amalgamate with them, as the Spanish have done. (Statistics) (Jeremiah 30:10-11) This out-populating power is Anglo-Saxon only, and it exactly fulfills the prophecies of Israel for the latter days.
* An immensely wealthy people.
* Lending to many nations, but borrowing from none. (Deuteronomy 28:12)
* Mistress of the Seas. 'Britannia rules the waves'..Columbia the gem of the Ocean'...(These prophecies found 'Lost Israel' before this final time of 'Jacob's trouble')
* Israel (Ephraim and those with him) must be under a Monarchy. Britain is under a Monarchy and shall be until this Identity message is fully accepted. It is only due to our past neglect of 'Moses and the Prophets' that we suppose Israel was lost, and the Divine line of kings vanished from the earth. Let us read again the promise:...(Jeremiah 33:14-25) Behold! the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel, and to the house of Judah. In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, JEHOVAH-TSIDKENU. (The Lord our righteousness) For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a son to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel, Thus saith the LORD. If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my Covenant of the night; and there should not be day and night in their season; then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne. As the hosts of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sane of the sea measured; so will I multiply the seed of David my servant. Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying:...THE TWO FAMILIES WHICH THE LORD HATH CHOSEN, HE HATH CAST THEM OFF? Thus they have despised My people that they should be no more a nation before them. Thus saith the LORD; if my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth;...Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them.
Today we know how the throne of David was transferred to the western Isles, and this is a subject dealt with in another story, but in the meantime it is apropos to call attention to God's Oath to David. 'Behold, I will provide a place for my people Israel, and will plant them and they shall no more be rooted up, and thy seed shall rule over them.' (II Samuel 7:10) These promises and the references to these promises are to numerous to re-capitulate here, but the promise was confirmed with a solemn oath, and by a covenant of salt. It was an amplification of the original promise to Judah that the scepter should not depart from this tribe until Shiloh (rest) come.
Now:...we have never met a Clergyman or a Biblical student who outside of Identity people could account for the lapse in David's line from Zedekiah to this present time. But God provided a place for Israel, and for centuries the tribes have been gathering, and when they arrived in the west, Judah's Scepter was there to meet them. As the tribes of Israel were coming overland, and otherwise, they were 'Many days without a King', (Hosea 3:4) still there was no break in David's line as Jeremiah was given the commission to build and to plant, and he brought this tender twig (Zedekiah's daughter) to Ireland where a son of the Zarah line was waiting for her. Zedekiah was the last king of the house of Judah, the Southern Kingdom (Josephus and the Bible) of whom we have any biblical record; and he died in Babylon about 550 B.C. This breach must be filled up, or else religious men are confronted with a plain failure of the covenant of salt. It is a deadly breach, and we do not believe that the salt of God's promise was without savor. Those who do but stultify their faith in other promises; and those who hope to win men to scriptural confidence must fill this gap so as to satisfy an intelligent person willing to accept all other promises, if they can show him by the fulment of this one that such Faith is reasonable.
It is a remarkable fact that even the savior disavowed any intention to 'restore' the scepter or explain its disappearance. He simply told his disciples that it was not for them to know the times which the Great Spirit (the Father) had reserved. But it is for us to know the time, for on us had the end of the latter times fallen. The Savior might have said: upon the Mount of Ascension, when asked this last and anxious question..'Go, seek that scepter in the islands of the north and the west, and preach these tidings as you go'...BUT HE DID NOT...HE said only:..'Preach to Israel.' Today we know that the promise has been fulfilled, for God provided a place for Israel, and thither, for centuries, the Tribes have gathered, and the scepter has always flourished and is still supreme.
** Dan was to judge his people. Thus too, it came about that Dan 'who abode in his ships', escaped to his island colonies at the time of Israel's captivities and has judged his people. For his blood now flows in the royal line. Thus to the Royal line of David we say that this Royal line is innocent of participation in the crucifixion. This would have been Dei-Regi-suicide! How could David have slain his own son and Savior???
** Israel must have the stone of Testament with them. This is Jacob's stone..Bethel..which became a witness between Jehovah and Israel. It is the 'House of God', and it had a most mysterious history in Palestine; was used as the 'Coronation stone' of Israel (II Kings 12-14). The stone disappeared with Jeremiah, it reappears with Tea Tephi in Ireland as the LIA PAHIL (stone wonderful) then in unbroken coronation ceremonies comes, Vis, Tara, Iona, Dustaffnage, and Scone, to London where it has been used ever since, and it now is in Westminster Abbey, and is the priceless gem of Britain, and the Palladium of Israel.
** Israel's national heraldry must be the 'Lion', and the 'Unicorn', and the 'Bullock'. These pertain to Ephraim-Israel, particularly the former, and are on the arms of Great Britain, and the latter is the great characteristics of 'John Bull'. (Numbers 24:8-9) With Manasseh (The United States) as the eldest son of Joseph, we find other references to special tribal symbols, particularly the 'Eagle', and the number 13, but this is also another story where more space can be given to such a subject.
** Israel is to be called in Isaac's name, and so they were. The word Saxon being directly derived from I-Sakai-Sunnia, Saac-Suna, Sacsones...and so forth, but all meaning sons of Sasc..'Sons of Isaac'. Before leaving Samaria they were called in 'Isaac's name'. (Amos 7:9 and 16) By calling ourselves Saxons we are acknowledging ourselves to be the sons and daughters of Isaac, and complying with scripture by being called by another name. (Romans 9:7 and Hebrews 11:18) Upon the northern slope of the mountains of Israel overlooking Damascus, lay the ancient city of Bashan, and there Ptolemy gives the name 'Saecaea' to a very old town. Reverend S. Porter in his, 'Giant Cities of Bashan', found this place..named..Shuka. This traces the word Saecaea directly back to the very home of where Israel lived before captivity. An examination of an ancient map of Palestine will show at a point south of the sea of Galilee...a city named, Scythopolis. This is yet another but most significant name for Bashan, where these... Sacaea dwelt. Just south of it is Succoth, a name as prominent in Scottish history as Saxon and Scythian is in that of all the early settlers of Albion.
Strabo says:..the most ancient Greek historians called the people who lived beyond the Caspian Sea...'Sacaea'.
Diodorus says:..The Sakai were among the most distinguished people of Scyhia, who settled in Armenia and were called Ceca-San. Pliny says:..The Sakai were those who sprang from a people in Media. Upon the famous Behistun-rock Darius placed the history of the 'Iskunka'.. the chief of the Sacaea, who rebelled against him.
Sharon Turner says:..The Saxons were a Scythian nation and were called... Saca, Sachi, Saki, and Sach-sen.
When Darius invaded Scythia and demanded earth and water as tokens of submission, the answer our Saxon ancestors sent back in the form of a most significant present was:...They sent him a bird, a mouse, and a frog, and a bundle of arrows. This meant:...fly into the air like a bird, hide in the earth like a mouse, dive into the water like a frog, lest our arrows (emblems of fire) prove your doom. The army of Darius retreated after being worn out and struck by this eloquent message. This message had an Israelite, a British, and a Cabalistic flavor and as an early expression of the 'Monroe Doctrine' was doubtless suggested by some of the descendants of ever warlike Ephraim and Manasseh. Finally upon the head of Iskunka the Saxon, as portrayed upon the Behistun-rock, 500 years before the Christ, is an exact representation of a Greek Cross= (X). Upon the obverse of a penny of Alfred the great 1000 years old, occurs its perfect counterpart.
Palgrave, in his history of the Anglo-Saxons, gives a drawing of a Runic ring at least as old as 200 years before The Christ, bearing a similar design. Nay not this pre-Christian cross have been an emblem of the blessing ceremony of Ephraim and Manasseh at which their father Israel so significantly crossed his arms above them? Even buried in their name is this symbol...saXon.
** Israel must be kind to strangers, treating them as if 'born among them'. (Leviticus 19:34) But also this has at times led to the downfall of Israel.
** Israel must have abolished the slave trade, and this England did in 1834, and America in 1861.
** Israel must be a people separated by God Himself, from all others, and in covenant relation with him forever. (II Samuel 7:24...British Covenant) Religiously, socially, and politically, the Western Christian nations...'Dwell alone', and are not to be numbered among the nations forming the world order.
** They must have the finest of fruit, and cattle of the earth (Deuteronomy 33:13-16 and Genesis 49:22-26 and all of Genesis 48)
** Israel...The disciples were to carry the Gospel first...to the land of Judea and from there to all the nations of Israel. (Luke 24:47)... Beginning at Jerusalem, not ending there, thus the chief feature of the Saxon missionary work became the spreading of the 'Scriptures' as a witness. Blindness in part made much of their work non productive, but both Britain and America have been a Sabbath keeping people. Blind to their origin as the Saxons surely are, and even declaring both in America and Britain that they are not God's Israel people, as the press does when this topic is broached, and as almost everyone does upon its first presentation. And continually demonstrating their belief that 'Israel' is yet to be 'found' by them or others, somewhere else among the heathen remnants in the 'corners' or 'wilderness' of the earth! Yet continually acknowledging both in America and in Britain, in the services of different churches, and in the public prayers of all churches, and blindly in the public press on solemn occasions, that they are....'God's People.'
** In exile, Israel must speak another language unknown to them in early days. (Isaiah 28:11) nevertheless, though so variously marked as Israel, they were to be called by another name, otherwise they would not be lost. While the Jews retained their identity, and their name for a curse. (Isaiah 65:15)..(Through this blindness of Israel many think this scripture refers to Judah, and thus they call Judah...Jew, and in that instance they are giving the whole Old Testament to the Jews, thus giving away their inheritance. Out author here equates some of Judah and Jew the same, and thus I cannot agree with him. When Ezra cleansed the blood of Israel, he sent away all those that had married into Israel..thus as soon as you step out of your race and produce a child then that child is no longer..Israel..if any of Judah married outside their race then the Judah line stopped there.)
** Israel must be found as prone to idolatry, and ever lapsing into it. (Hosea 3:11) As England with her history can demonstrate...the Golden Calf. And Our Own great nation with idolatrous forms of Christianity, as well as in our mother country. 365 (now more) sub-divisions in Protestantism, besides Mormonism, Spiritualism, Atheism, Agnosticism, Licensed iniquity, Laxity of law, and so forth. Having a part of the nation afflicted with hardness of heart, or blindness (Romans 11:25) we are alas! a careless people; for we have God so close to us, and yet live heedless lives. 'The wise only shall understand.' (Daniel 12:10)
** Israel...Nationally addicted to the vice of drunkenness. (Isaiah: 28) Check your statistics and 10 times more is spent for run than for religion. The Ancient Scythians were so noted for their drinking habits that it became as proverbial for the Greeks to pour out like a Scythian, and as it were for Saxons 'to drink like fish'. ** Where Dan and Israel are there too, we must find the Canaanites (Cainites) (Isaiah 33:55 and Joshua 23:13) These people lived with Dan and Simeon in Palestine, and they came with them to Ireland. They boast of their origin, and are to this day, hewers of wood, and haulers of water, and they are 'thorns in the side, and pricks in the eyes' of the English and American people. Truly they are still in the land of Israel, but they are left for a purpose, Namely, to prove Israel.
** Israel adheres always to her ancient, just, scientifically accurate, and heaven-given system of weights and measures (Leviticus 19:36). A true fact of England and America, but not of any nation that has adopted and made compulsory the Metric system (Revelation 13:17). See our inheritance in 'The Great Pyramid' by Professor C. Piazzi Smith;....'an important question' by our author..John Wiley and sons, N.Y. Publishers; and publications of the International Institute, of Cleveland, Ohio, and many other sources.
** Israel must have 'the evidence' of her identity close at hand, some of them open, others concealed, but in time to be revealed and produced. (Jeremiah 32 and Jeremiah 32-14 and produced as Jeremiah 51) The class of identities which we have been briefly noting are 'open', patent to all who seek the truth. But traditions look to the disclosing of 'former things' in a way calculated to astonish the nations. It is probable that when Jeremiah brought David's line to Ireland and 'Planted it', that there was a Tender Twig (Ezekiel 17), and that he also brought with him the 'Ark of the Covenant', which he is known to have had in his charge (II Maccabees 2:4-6) and within which are those sacred contents whose reproduction in time will silence all doubts, and fully establish Saxon's Israel's course. These evidences concealed in the 'Earthen vessels' above referred to are the title-deeds to Palestine. Those in the Ark are the pot of manna, the tables of the law, Aaron's rod, perhaps the High Priest's breastplate, the Testimony, and so forth.
** Israel's physiognomy must be different from that of the people who never lost their identity, and were left for a curse to God's chosen. The Hebrew origin of the Anglo-Saxon has not been disproved when it is asserted that they do not possess crooked nose's. 'I will not argue with a man', says the great master of ratiocination, John Locke, 'who will not try the truth of a proposition by its own proof, but by what...he supposes...to be its agreement with another already established.' Those who are disposed to cavil at so great a truth because the Saxons, who claim to be of 'Israel', do not possess the 'Show of countenance' which was set as a 'Mark' on the Jew only, are not broad enough in comprehension to discuss this matter at all. It is a delicate subject to discuss (Genesis 4:3-16), and we must not forget that there was a day long before the Christian era (510 B.C.) when even that so called Jew of Jews, Mordecai, and that daughter of her lovely women, 'Esther', passed unnoticed in and out of the chamber of Ahasuerus, nor forget that although like Paul, they were called 'Jews', they were like him and the rest of the Apostles...'Benjaminites'. And thus although 'Of Israel', betrayed not the blood of Abraham! (Esther 2:5 and 10 and 20).
** Wherever modern Israel is she must be politically, and a direct principal part, in all that concerns the 'Eastern Question', as the Turks vacate Israel.
God works by natural means, hence, so far as the natural trend of events, and the probable course of diplomacy are concerned, the Britains must be of the 'Sons of Isaac'. It is thus that Israel is being manifested, and by natural means this story will work out; yet none the less is all this wonderful, in Spirit of Man! Thus says Butler:..'As it is known that the whole scheme of Scriptures is not yet understood; so if it ever comes to be understood, before, the restitution of things, and without miraculous interpositions, it must be in the same way that natural knowledge is come at...by the continuance and progress of learning and liberty, and by particular persons attending to comparing, and pursuing intimations scattered up and down it, which are overlooked and disregarded by the generality of the world.'
** If England..The British Isles is Israel, hers must be the 5th., Kingdom and Last Empire? (Daniel) Her Island is a 'Stone' cut out without hands from Europe. Her throne seat is 'Bethel', the 'Stone of Testimony'. Her name is Albion...The Mountain high and excellent...Her children are stones...(Saxae). The Anglo-Saxons and kindred people are indeed in every sense, 'The Stone Kingdom' of the latter and everlasting 'times'! Tarshis, one of the names of the Western Isles means:..'A precious stone the color of marble.' Tarshis of old had a double locality, and east and a west Tarshish.
Bryce the English Statesman, an able critic of 'The American commonwealth', sums up his testimony thus:...'In Europe, whose thinkers have seldom been in a less cheerful mood than they are today...there are many who have lost the OLD FAITH in progress. Yet there are others whose review of that 'Ancient Pilgrimage' convinces them that though the ascent of man be slow it is also sure. That if we compare each age with those which preceded it, we find that the ground which seems for a time to have been lost is ultimately recovered. We see human nature growing gradually more refined, institutions better fitted to secure justice, the opportunities for happiness larger, and more varied, so that the error of those who formed ideals never yet attained, lay only in their forgetting how mush effort and patience under repeated disappointment must go that attainment. This less somber type of thought is more common in the United States than in Europe, for the people not only feel in their veins a pulse of youthful strength, but remember the magnitude of evils they have vanquished, and see that they have already achieved many things which the OLD WORLD has longed for in vain. And by so much as the people of the United States are more hopeful, by that much they are more healthy. They do not, like their forefathers, expect to attain their ideals either easily or soon; but they will strive toward them, and they say this with a note of confidence in the voice which rings in the ear of the European visitor, and fills him with some of their own hopefulness. America still has a long vista of years stretching before her, in which she will enjoy conditions far more auspicious than England can count on. And that America marks the highest level, not only of material well being, but of intelligence and happiness which...THE RACE has yet attained, will be the judgment of those who look not on the favored few for whose benefit the world seems hitherto to have framed its institutions, but...at the whole body of the people.'
And finally in an able review of Bryce's 'American Commonwealth', another Englishman in the 'Quarterly Review' of July 1889 says:...'If some American gifted with a temper as genial, a pen as facile, and a scholarship as generous as Mr. Bryce possesses, would now write for the benefit of his countrymen a similar book about England, it would do those of them who have not seen their mother country, a world of good, and perhaps give John Bull, himself, a look in the glass that would do him no harm. It is satisfaction to look back upon a great and accomplished past. It is inspiring to look forward even to an unknown future. It needs no prophet to perceive that...THE RACE...is to dominate the world when time is old enough. In the perpetual fraternity of its branches lies their own...and the worlds best hope. It simply cannot be that this..RACE..is a mere 'Pretender' in so grand a role; and yet if it be not Israel, in whose part it has so successfully masqueraded all these years, then as one has said:..'It is so consummate a counterfeit that, like Spencer's 'False Florimel', it must melt into thin air as soon as the true one appears, and it may well be asked:...where from the days of Spencer's good 'OLD ENGLISH' down to these, shall he find a true one for the vacant pedestal?'
** Naturally, if this identity be true, upon examination we should find many customs and manners among the ancient English, and Saxons similar to those of Israel, such as:..Druidism..and yes some Baalism..and the form of their natural Oath, 'So help me God'. (Deuteronomy 6:13 and I Samuel 20:42) You would find:..The law of perjury (Exodus 20:16), and the custom of fallow land (Leviticus 25:4)..landmarks (Deuteronomy 27:17)..Next of Kin (Leviticus 25:29)..laws of inheritance, usuary, diplomacy and census taking to mention a few. It is useless to enumerate for the whole law and custom of our ancestors either came from the Bible or directly from Mount Sinai. Volumes have been written on the ancient customs of our Saxon forefathers. Customs which they had before they were Christianized; even as they had the battle cry:..'Alleluia!', before they came to England, and as the Normans gave us:..Hurrah..Ha Rou or Dex aide, a similar cry to Huzzah, to Hosannah!, and customs which other nations non-Hebraic, did not have, thus the conclusions are inevitable. When the Puritans gave special opportunity to the full development of our Hebrew tendencies, the very nation seemed to recover itself as only Israel could have done. It is as tho by second nature we recall the past.
** Israel must answer in modern times to the 4 prophecies of Balaam...a 'separated', 'Lion' hearted, Highly 'exalted' people, and a Kingdom, with 'its seed in many waters', doing 'valiantly' (Numbers 22 and 23 and 24th., chapters). This is the history of the Saxon race, from its beginning hitherto.
** We should find in Israel's Redivivus numerous minor identities perpetually cropping up here and there, suggestively reminding us of those from whom we sprang. The foregoing mere selections describe 'Lost Israel', as in contradistinction to those never lost..in the latter days. They should be read with all the prophets, and with Moses as a full and generous, and absolutely unlimited context. The references given are unnecessarily few, and to one who knows how many might have been given, we fear, poorly selected. A concordance will swell them to 7/8 of the Bible. This is the time of Harvest, and we are looking forward to that time. The religious contrast of Jew and Israel must be born in mind, and the distinction between Ephraim and Manasseh not lost to view. This is the day of Fulfillment, therefore we urge you to read the Prophets.
God alone can bless His own elected ones with wisdom, willingness, and powers of discrimination enough to read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest so vast a truth, and enable them to grasp it as a full solution of the human problem.
We naturally find the HARP in Ireland, ringing in the halls of Tara beneath the touch of David's daughter!
Joseph's coat of many colors; is found in the Scottish plaid and highlands, and still preserved as a tribal distinction.
We find the stumbling of Ephraim's tongue over the letter...h...so that Shibboleth would test a modern 'Cockney', still a stumbler on his h's, and so on with a volume of similar identities. (Judges 12:6)
** Space simply fails to prosecute this subject further. Israel's children must 'Know the LORD'. She must have found her isles 'a little sanctuary'; and have been safe from all foreign invasions; have found her monarchy immovable; must have the Bible open in her schools, her homes, and churches; and must have increased as the 'fishes' do. Must have sent out shoals of Colonizers; be devoted to pedigree, genealogy, and heraldry; must have dominated, and survived, and subdued all other seeds in cases of Amalgamation with Gentiles. And must be looking for the end, yet dwelling carelessly; and so on...without end.
THE SIGN OF THE CROSS
When the time arrived for Jacob-Israel to be gathered to his fathers, this last of the Patriarchs was moved of God to assign the two classes of blessings at his disposal, in a very noticeable way. To Abram..Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, these blessings had been given directly by God. (Genesis 12:3, Genesis 22:18, and Genesis 28:14) Not only were the spiritual ones, 'and in thee, and thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed', so conferred, but the temporal ones as well, were also transmitted. 'Thy name shall be Abraham for a father of many nations have I made out of thee.' (Genesis 17:5) This blessing and promise was transmitted to Isaac, and then was amplified to Jacob who was promised that his posterity should become...a nation...and a company of nations. (Genesis 35:9-15) Now;..Abraham could not deflect either promise to the Son of the bond woman, they both came intact to Isaac, nor could Isaac separate them, for Esau sold his birthright; and thus they went 'combined' to Jacob.
Then with Jacob the circumstances changes, for Jacob had 12 sons; and guided by the Holy Spirit, he assigned the blessings as follows:..Unto Judah he gave the spiritual blessing, for of him would come the 'Lawgiver' ...The Christ. But unto Joseph, the beloved son, Jacob gave all the temporal blessings that pertained to the Birthright, not omitting however, special blessings to all his sons.
The end drew for this old Patriarch and when this was told to Joseph who at this time was high in the administration of Egypt he took his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, and hastened to Goshen. And Israel as he had been renamed strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed, and there was enacted a most significant ceremony, which in the light of subsequent events; is see to have ushered in the means toward the full fruition of YAHWEH'S WILL.
There in..to quiet forever..among his descendants, any dispute as to the nature and degree of their special blessing (Jacob) Israel then and there formally 'adopted', before the blessing of them, these two sons of Joseph:...'and now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Egypt,..ARE MINE, as Reuben and Simeon shall they be mine.' Thus the two sons of Joseph who was second in command to Pharaoh in Egypt, were now, ISRAELITES.
It will be remembered that as Joseph moved his eldest son Manasseh to Israel's right hand, and Ephraim to his left hand as was customary... nevertheless..Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it upon the head of Ephraim, and his left hand upon the head of Manasseh, 'Guiding his hands willingly' so says the Scriptures. The first effect of this blessing was to make 'The sign of the cross (X) above the heads of these two children, a sign especially significant to them who are in later years to be the leaders of the 'Lost Tribes', still later were to be baptized in it, and now have it in their Saxon name, and were to bear it triple on their flag...'THE UNION JACK'.
It will be noted that in this crossing of his arms, by which 'he set Ephraim before Manasseh', that the Patriarch constituted the latter...the 13th., tribe, and then and thenceforth ever to be 13 tribed Israel. The precedence given to Ephraim placed him in his fathers place as the 12., and this left Manasseh last, or 13 in the order of his tribal birth. The name...Manasseh..means forgetfulness, and we of the U.S. carrying that banner have lived up to that meaning, as we forget, and give away our inheritance. If our people would only awaken fully into the truth of our identity, then how still more irresistibly, beneath such standards, might 'five of them chase an hundred, and an hundred of them put ten thousand to flight.' For unto Israel alone is the promise given that 'No arms fashioned against her shall succeed.'
There is a Triple alliance in store for a day of the near future before which one now somewhat famous in the annals of diplomacy will pale into significance. For there is one power that is equally interested with England and America in this terrestrial consummation, to wit...Germany.
'Thus saith the LORD GOD, Behold! I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him...even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.' (Ezekiel 37:19)
(Since here at the end of the age we see even more clearly than did our author as he wrote this book of history, it is well to ask the question of where did those of the Judah Kingdom go? Where did those 200,120 people who went into captivity with the 10 tribes of Israel go? We know the Royal family of David's line was transferred to the Isles, but where after the crucifixion and ascension of The Christ did those in Old Palestine who were of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi go? We know that the Jews were not dispersed until 70 A.D., but what happened to these other people?
According to Dr. Wesley A. Swift a great Identity Minister, there are Roman records that tell us that those left in Palestine of those tribes, received permission to migrate from that land. So where did they go to settle with their brethren who had gone on long before them?? According to the research of Dr. Swift, you find that Judah is on the east side of the Western House of God which is now in England, and yes Judah is Germany. This agrees with our author, just explaining it in light of our understanding of today as to the difference in people of the Book. Also contrary to some of the older scholars such as Milner...as they explain Gog and Magog, and Togarmah, and Gomar...Dr. Swift told us that Togarmah and Gomar were the outlying riders of Genghis Khan's army, and today they would be those coming out of that same area under the leadership of World Communism..Zionism. Therefore Germany is not Gomer as so many of our people have been led to believe.) Remember that the blessing given to Judah and Joseph, by their Father leads them into the role of representatives of the two Kingdoms of Israel at the death of Solomon.
'Gather yourselves together, and hear ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel, your Father.'
Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise,
Thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies;
Thy fathers children shall bow down before thee.
Judah is a lion's whelp..from the prey, my son, thou art gone up:
He stoopeth down, he croucheth as a lion..and as an old lion;
who shall rouse him up?
The Scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a
law-giver from between his feet,
Until Shiloh come..and unto him shall the gathering
of the people be.
Binding his foal unto the vine..and his ass's colt
unto the choice vine;
He washed his garments in wine, and his clothes
in the blood of grapes;
His eyes shall be red with wine, and his teeth white with milk.
Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough
by a well;
Whose branches run over the wall:
The archers have sorely grieved him..and shot at him
and hated him:
But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his
hands were made strong
By the hands of the Mighty God of Jacob:.
(from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel;
he, Joseph is the keeper of Bethe!)
Even by the God of thy Father, who shall help thee,
And by the Almighty, who shall bless thee...
with blessings of heaven above,
Blessings of the deep that lieth under,
blessings of the breasts and the womb:
The blessings of thy father have prevailed above
the blessings of my progenitors.
Unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills;
they shall be on the head of Joseph.
And on the crown of the head of him that was
separated from his brethren.'
These blessings are explained by history in no uncertain terms. They sweep downward thru its course, and in their comprehensive scope lead up to what, as Jacob said, should be the circumstances of his posterity..in Judah, as in Joseph,...IN THE LATTER DAYS. It is unto these days that Moses and all his successors of the school of prophets looked, for the return of Judah unto Ephraim, the two tribes..to the ten..then immediately thereafter, to their land recovered from the sword. In the words of Moses thus re-echoed down the stream of prophecy, by all his successors, we have the mention of this gathering as follows:...
'And this is the blessing of Judah; and he said:..Hear LORD, the voice of Judah, and bring him unto his people. Let his hands be sufficient for him, and be thou an help unto him from his enemies.'
We know the promises, we wait for the identification, and manifestation of Israel..to the world, and to themselves; and their formal recognition I will yet for this be inquired of by the House of Israel..To do it for them. Even so...Amen.'
When this promise fully commences it will be a 'short work' (Romans 9:25-26). Judah and Israel will return to their God together, and the nations of Israel will flock to Zion. The Eastern question will be settled,..THE SAVIOR WILL APPEAR AS KING OF KINGS TO RULE MILLENNIALLY. (Revelation 20:1-6) Thus intimately joined, yet ever separate, the 'Scepter' and the 'Birthright' have come down the stream of time. Not since these blessings were first uttered, at the bedside of the dying Patriarch, have they halted, changed, or faltered.
My kinsmen and my countrymen, those days are on us, and they are... 'The Latter Days', and all must see them now, for they are written so 'that he may run that readeth', (Habakkuk 2:1-20) I write here not as an alarmist, but rather do I write as one impressed with the beauty of the theme. I write because it seems to solve the problem of existence, because the subject tells us who we are, and who HE is, so faithful and so true unto his covenants, who still pleads with us so tenderly, in the wilderness, to turn to HIM whose bowels yearn to save his people, and to bless them.
There are thousands of things which we would touch upon in this connection had we but space, and our readers but the Patience. He whose heart has been burned by the iron of conviction with the truth of what we are so poorly telling here, will also see little chance there is in mans affairs..for accident,..coincidence, and chance. He will be awed to know that the self same Obelisks which stood before their ancestors temple, now mark the busy marks of all their modern greatness. He will also perceive a new significance in the national number 13 which Manasseh honors so, and not only in his flag perceive a hidden reference to the paternal 'coat of may colors', but in his 'crest' of stars a reference to the dream that exiled Joseph, and on his 'coat of arms' will actually find 'the olive branch' of Joseph which he bears by primogeniture. He will read new meaning in a literal translation of Manasseh's 13 lettered motto,...'E PLURIBUS UNUM'..'One taken out of (from) many;', and in the reverse motto on the seal, 'annuit Coeptis', also 13 lettered. 'He has prospered our beginnings', he will read a reference to him who was the most prosperous man of History,..even Joseph his father. These institutions cannot pass away; their full development no hand can stay from reaching the goal of their most perfect realization. It is a new order of ages...'Novus Ordo Seclorum', as we have on our seal which has been lowered from heaven; and the capstone of the Pyramid, whose date is golden and mature (1776) is but another Bethel falling from the sky.
IF SUCH THERE BE ON SAXON SOIL WHOSE SOUL RESPOND NOT TO SUCH SENTIMENTS AS THESE....they are not..'called in Isaac's name. For he who led the people up from Egypt says of Joseph:.....
'Blessed of the Lord be his land...for the precious things of heaven,
For the Dew and for the deep that croucheth beneath,
And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun,
And for the precious things put forth by the moon,
And for the chief things of the ancient mountains,
And for the precious things of the lasting hills,
And for the precious things of earth, and the fullness thereof,
And for the good-will of him that dwelt in the bush;
Let the blessings come upon the head of Joseph,
And upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his
His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and
his horns are like the horns of unicorns.
With them he shall push the people, together to the ends of the earth.
And they are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
And they are the thousands of Manasseh.' (Deuteronomy 33:13-17)
But even were these people indeed not 'Lost Israel'..they are we feel, but their history is nevertheless wonderful beyond the story of all other nations, and they certainly have been led by the God of Abraham, and led differently than any other nation has been, and toward a grander destiny.
When we consider these Temporal blessings then why should it seem strange for the centuries to pass before the fulfillment? Shall it then be deemed hopeless at the end of this century if we still find ourselves still waiting that clear perception which shall manifest the completion of the chain?
There is consummate philosophy to history, and its pages have no...'Non sequiturs'; and do but honor all to lightly HIM who is so faithful to the oath he swear! And why should we, of all men upon earth who boast so of our 'spiritual' lineage from Abraham, consider it impossible, that Yahweh, God to whom far rather this is clearly possible, and who of the very stones may raise up sons to Isaac, should of Anglo-Saxon stones rear literal descendants to inherit the Kingdom, which, so long ago, he cut, and without hands, from out 'The mountains of Israel?' In his allusions to the raising of sons for Abraham (Matthew 3:9 and Luke 3:8) and to the crying aloud of the very 'stones' had his disciples held their peace (Luke 19:40), the Savior may perhaps have made a 'play on words' far deeper than the one he made upon the name of Peter. For in the days he uttered it, our Anglo-Saxon ancestors dwelt all thru Asia Minor, and in the northern Black sea region, and many devout men from among them came up to celebrate the Passover. Now:..it was to these 'Lost Sheep' of the House of Israel that the Apostles were sent. They all of them save...Judas only..were of the tribe of Benjamin, which tribe of Isaac's sons must have formed the bulk of the multitude that so disturbed Jerusalem with its Hosannas! Benjamin, it will be remembered he had been 'lent' only, to Judah, 'for David's sake', and in the after light of history, had been left for the express purpose of ultimately acting as a 'light bearer' unto his fellow tribesmen when true...LIGHT..should arrive. Indeed the pun on Peter's name acquires a new significance when we remember that he, too, was a Saxon, and that out of the 'Saxons' (I Peter 2:4-8 and Ephesians 2:19-22) hath Christ built his church (the spiritual center of His Kingdom) nor have the gates of hell prevailed against it. Thus goes the wondrous story of the transfer of a people..their 'Scepter' before them..the daughter of the last surviving lineal descendent of David..in the east, coming to the resting place in the west. She had rested in Egypt for a while, and yesterday the palace of this Princess, at Tahpanhes in Egypt was unearthed. It is still known by the Arabs as the 'Palace of the Hebrew Daughter', and beneath its pavements lay the self same block that Jeremiah, her guardian, buried as a sign so long ago.
Naturally at present there are missing links in our story, and missing chapters in the sequence. But the stream of proof runs like a river in the desert sinking here and there, and reappearing farther on, but always it is the same bed, and growing more and more continuous as we mount toward its source. This argues of a past, and promises a future, 'rainy season'. The day is coming when swollen with facts, and rising into view through out its course, it will be like Jordan in 'The Latter Rains', and then the current will bear all before it.
For ten years this writer has been familiar with the authorities whereon to strongly fortify the statements he has made; nor in this time has he ever come across a single fatal objection to their general truth. The simple gain in credence with investigation.
There is no grander theme upon the scrolls of history than the story of the 'Sons of Isaac', and their struggle every day..ever westward. They planted their Way marks, and led by the tribe of Dan, the streams of Europe mark their path, and their resting places. It was either the tribe of Dan, obeying its tribal proclivity for naming everything it captured (Judges 18:1 and 2 and 29) after their father, or else the mere survival of a word and custom; but none the less it serves to trace these wanderers like a trail until Dan's resting place...Danes..in Dan-emerke.
THE PLOT OF ROMANCE:.....
The leaders of the revolt which separated Israel from Judah at the death of Solomon were the sons of Joseph..or Ephraim and Manasseh. God would not permit the Judah Kingdom to maintain by arms the integrity of the union which this succession severed. He sent a prophet to Judah to prevent it, and commissioned him to announce:...Thus saith the LORD, 'Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren, the children of Israel; return every man to his house; for this thing is from me.'
In due time the tree of Israel was cut down, cast out, and left to wither on the rugged sloped of Old Palestine, but every leaf which fell upon the rugged soil took root downward, and straightway grew again, renewed, and quickened. For where they faded, till the bough was stripped, there the rootlets of the Saxon race have left their finest fibers.
Herodotus, the 'father of history' tells us much of this people called Khumbri, and traces their history which corresponds with the finding of the archaeologist's. Other historians such as Homer, Strabo, Diodorus, Pliny, Josephus, and others manifest that the Saxon....Scythians, Scots, Cymri, Cumri, and Khumri: the Getae, the Massa-Getae, the Goths, The Varangs, the Gomerim, and the hosts of other names by which this one and the same people have been known over the path from Old Palestine to Media and then forward they are one and the same people.
The mother of these Gomerim people was Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim, and her progeny so ill conceived, were name of God himself...LO-AMMI.. 'Not my people, and I will not be your God,' (Hosea 1:1-9)...and 'Yet' before the prophet finished, and in the same breath that he gives these same 'Isaac Sons' their first name, he says:..'The number of these children of Israel shall be as numerous as the sands of the sea, and cannot be numbered: and it shall come to pass that in the place where it was said of them:..'Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them',..'Ye are the sons of the Living God.' (Hosea 1:10) and so we are, for God has changed our symbolic name long since to 'AMMI', in the very way that Hosea's writings indicate.
It is well known that Israel was cast away on account of Baalistic worship. In Sargon's annals we find...'By the help of the sun I captured the city of Samaria (Khumree) and carried away into captivity, 27,280 of its inhabitants.'
Providence, or fate, is strangely sending all of these yet to be invaluable links in the records of our own past history, into the British museum. And the present and past generation have translated them, ignorant as yet of what a service they have performed both for themselves, and their posterity.
THE CONCLUSION OF THE MATTER.
Our subject burdens one with its immensity, and well it should; in order to maintain its claims. For if it be the truth, it is the greatest miracle of history and down before it, when 'Its ancient things' are clearly demonstrated...infidelity..in every form must crumble into dust.
It has already conquered, and it will grind to powder those who have the temerity to stand before it. For HE who is the former of all things, the LORD OF HOSTS, is His name, speaking of Israel as the rod of His inheritance, says of His chosen people:...(Jeremiah 51:20)
'Thou are my battle-axe and weapons of war;
And with thee will I break in pieces the nations,
And with thee will I break in pieces the horse and his rider:
And with thee will I destroy kingdoms:
And with thee will I break in pieces the chariot and his rider:
And with thee also will I break in pieces man and woman;
And with thee will I break in pieces the young man and the maid;
I will also break in pieces with thee, the shepherd and his flock;
And with thee will I break in pieces the husbandman and his yoke of oxen.
And with thee will I break in pieces captains and rulers.'
This is an address unto Israel, as the fifth and final Monarchy, the Empire of Stone seated upon the Saxon stone of Empire. It is spoken against Babylon in a double sense, as the head of the world Image of Empire, and the Genius of Abomination, against both shall Israel, doubly called in Isaac's name, be strengthened and prevail.
The peoples of the earth must see this truth in time, and its..light..must 'flow unto the LORD' in willingness. But as for us, the time is now upon the Saxon race. The arguments are clear enough to awaken Israel now. Moreover let Tara yield her sacred treasure to the light and a nation will be reborn in a day.
But were this truth by others scorned, and yet by Saxon's believed, the greatness of the Saxon stock would dominate the world more irresistibly than even now, when with but faint acknowledgment it reaches on toward its certain destiny. The Prophet Micah in chapters one and two tells us that he saw something concerning Samaria. Then even further we can in, II Esdras 13:4-48, follow this still further, and follow to a place in Rumania, in the Danubian provinces...called Arsareth still, and situated upon the river Sereth.
The documentation goes on and on, and still the race doesn't find itself.
In the glare of this identity, the clear reflection from its panoramic vistas takes significance so new, so startling, so marvelous, so thrilling, that all the links of universal history becomes but one harmonious sequence in a chain of evidence that is anchored in conviction.
Beneath its light the pages of prophecy read as the story of today, and God's sure word becomes the record;...or our own...GREAT RACE.
