The "Expose'" is an Internet document that endeavors to disprove the fact that The Lost
Tribes of Israel settled in Western Europe.

This is my response to it.

I have no idea who wrote it or I would supply a link to their site.

It fails totally and completely, and as usual, those who deny the truth have no alternative,
they are so quick to say that the U.S and Britain are not Ephraim and Manasseh in the end
time prophecies, but they can never say who is.

And there are many end time prophecies regarding the Lost Tribes, they are somewhere
today, but the nay sayers can never supply any other nations that have fulfilled the many
prophecies.

The words of The Expose' are in black (and the misspelling is his - this
know nothing can't spell "Britain"
), my words are white, Bible verses and links
are red.
                                                                               - an expose

OVERVIEW      Anglo-Israelism (also known as British Israelism) is the unscriptural  theory that Britain and the United States
constitutes the 10 lost tribes of  Israel who were carried away as captives by the Assyrians in 722 B.C.  It  is held by the
advocates of this view that the Kingdom of Israel (consisting  of ten tribes after their separation from the two tribes of Judah
and  Benjamin in the days of Rehoboam - I Kings 12:21) never returned to Israel  after Assyrian captivity as did Judah and
Benjamin after their 70 years'  captivity in Babylon.

It is scriptural that the Lost Tribes of Israel were carried off into slavery into Assyria in 722 B.C., that they never returned, that
they are to be separate peoples from Judah, the Jews, until rejoined by the LORD after His return.

They are spoken of in many end time prophecies and those who deny the truth never can come up with a viable alternative –
because there is none.

The only peoples who have fulfilled the many prophecies are those of Western Europe.

The only peoples who have fulfilled the prophecies regarding the Tribe of Joseph are the British and Americans.

Judah is/was one tribe – not two.

The Nation of Judah was made up of the Tribes of Judah, Levi, and Benjamin, and they did return from their slavery in Babylon.

Israel  never returned from Assyria.

Try to find any reputable source that says they did.

The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom (Israel) are "lost" after their  capture by the Assyrians in 722 B.C.  Through intermarriage
with other  nations, their unique national identity is "lost",    

This is incorrect – the Lost Tribes did not become ‘lost’ through “intermarriage” – they lost their identity because they
forsook the sign of being the LORD’s people – they abandoned the 7th Day Sabbath in favor of Baal worship. Baal
demands Sunday worship.

They had lost their identity, Israel, before they enslaved by Assyria, they called themselves "Samaria", after the name of their
capital city:

And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of
Ahab
king of Samaria.               1 Kings 21.1

But the angel of the Lord said to Elijah the Tishbite, Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say
unto them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that
ye go to inquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?        2 Kings 1.3

For the saying which he cried by the word of the Lord against the altar in Bethel, and against all the houses of the high places which are in
the cities of Samaria, shall surely come to pass.                                   1 Kings 13.32

The Jewish people have been able to keep their identity through history because they have steadfastly obeyed the 7th Day
Sabbath – the eternal sign of who belongs to, and serves YHVH and who does not
( Exodus 31.12-18)


Great Britian and the USA are believed to be the Anglo-Saxon ancestors of  the tribes Ephraim and Manasseh (predominantly),
so it may be inferred by  British-Israelism that white, English speaking people are really the chosen  people of God.   

Who else has fulfilled the prophecies?? (Genesis 48 + 49; Deuteronomy 33.13-17 and many others)


Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel by YHVH, made some end time prophecies – he was not a false prophet:

And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather yourselves together, that I may tell you that which shall befall you in
the last days.
Gather yourselves together, and hear, ye sons of Jacob; and hearken unto Israel your father. Genesis 49.1+2

He was speaking to us TODAY – LISTEN UP!!

22.  Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall:
23.  The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him:
24.  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:)
25.  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 of the womb:
26.  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 separate from his brethren.
 Genesis
49.22-26

What nation on Earth is enjoying these tremendous blessings? – Jacob said it was going to be in the last days – just
who is this speaking of??

What nation is hated for is tremendous wealth, power, and it’s arrogance over it’s unearned blessings??

Moses also  prophesied regarding The Tribe of Joseph, in his last words before he went up the mountain to die:

13.  And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the Lord be his land, for the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that
coucheth beneath,
14.  And for the precious fruits brought forth by the sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon,
15.  And for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious things of the lasting hills,
16.  And for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the
blessing come upon the head of Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separated from his brethren.
17.  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.

Who has received these blessings?

Who has/is successfully warring with the “peoples” from one end of the Earth to the other?

What nation is symbolized by a unicorn?? Standing next (and under) to the ‘lion of Judah’ no less.



















And famous for it’s “bullocks” – no nation has developed finer breeds of cattle than the British.


It is also believed that the Jews who were living in Israel at the time of Christ are now under a curse for rejecting the Messiah.  

Now the writer is getting into the teachings of the Aryan Nations offshoot the incorporated organization of “British-Israel”, a
thinly veiled effort by Satan to bring the truth into disrepute.

They are hatemongers and they spout the Satanic lies of “replacement theology”.

No one can replace Israel or Judah, and the LORD has not failed in His promises to them.

And He never will.

I have never heard of any Spirit Filled Sabbath Keeper spouting this nonsense, or who believed this, we understand that
everyone reaps what he sows – we are not punished for the sins of our fathers.

We all have plenty to answer for without being punished for something that someone else did 2000 years ago.

The Israelites  (the lost 10 tribes) now become the inheritors of God's promises.

NO, they always were the inheritors along with Judah – and they always will be – the LORD’s word will not fail.

Ephraim and Manasseh (the two sons of Joseph) are the major inheritors of the title  "Israelites" along with the other eight
tribes whose descendants are spread  in other parts of the world.  Because of this dispersal, it is believed that  the Queen of
England now sits on the throne of David.

The reason why the name “Israel” goes to Ephraim and Manasseh is because they were adopted by Jacob/Israel and he put
his name on them.

3.  And Jacob said unto Joseph, God Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,
4.  And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will
give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.
5.  And
now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of
Egypt before I came unto thee into Egypt, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.
6.  And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the
name of their brethren in their inheritance.
7.  And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little
way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.
8.  And Israel beheld Joseph's sons, and said, Who are these?
9.  And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray
thee, unto me, and I will bless them.
10.  Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them,
and embraced them.
11.  And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.
12.  And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.
13.  And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward
Israel's right hand, and brought them near unto him.
14.  And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon
Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
15.  And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my
life long unto this day,
16.  The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and
let my name be named on them, and the name
of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17.
 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held
up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head.
18.  And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.
19.  And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it:
he also shall become a people, and he also shall be
great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of
nations.
20.  And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he
set Ephraim before Manasseh.
  Genesis 48.3-20

This is why when the Unified Kingdom split there was absolutely no dispute over who could rightfully use the name “Israel” – it
legally belongs to the Tribe of Joseph, the leader of the Northern Kingdom.

The southern kingdom was “Judah” – the northern kingdom was “Israel” – look at the maps in the back of a Bible – most show
the borders of the two different nations.

And just what nations make up this “multitude” that was to spring from
The Tribe of Joseph (not Judah – or any of the other
Tribes)??

The name “Israel” is on the U.S. + Great Britain in prophecy – throughout the Bible.

The name Isaac is on us from the name Saxons = I-Sacs - Sons

And to see how Abraham’s name is on us please examine the two lowest skips for “Britain” searched with the term “Israel”.

http://www.exodus2006.com/JimWright/Lost-Tribes-in-Bible-Codes.pdf


In both matrices the word “Abraham” overwrites “Britain” – in exactly the same spot in both words.

This theory was first put forward around the year 1519.      Some of the main features of this theory are :-    1.  The period of
"political instability" caused when the Babylonians  conquered Assyria around 650 B.C., allowed the 10 tribes to escape to the  
north and east.    

History shows the “Cimmerians” migrated from their lands at this time.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cimmerians

Their lands were the exact same listed in the Bible as the area where the  Lost Tribes were settled.

‘Cimmerians’ is what the Assyrians called them – a corruption of the word ‘Samaria’ the capitol of the nation of Israel when they
conquered


2.  They fled past the Black Sea, the Carpathian Mts. into Russia,  Scandinavia, Prussia, Germany and then to Great Britain.    

This is what all history verifies – the people of Northwestern Europe migrated to the Northwest from the southeast, which
brings you to the Black and Caspian Seas.

It is no secret that the Celtic people migrated from the Caspian Sea area, in waves, over many years. Study some history.


3.        After the Babylonian captivity, only Judah and Benjamin returned to  Israel.

This is exactly what the Bible says – read it and see if you can find the return of the Lost Tribes – it is not there. But Judah did
return from Babylon, and it is well documented in scripture.

4.          This created a "problem" to British Israelism theology in that  the royal line had to come from the tribe of Judah (which
returned to the  south after the Babylonian captivity).  Royalty was said to have been  nrought to the ten tribes by the following
sequence of events :    4.  "The kingly line of Judah (Genesis 49:10) reached Britain when a  daughter of Zedekiah, the last king
of Judah before the fall of Jerusalem,  arrived with Jeremiah in 569 B.C.

If there were not a royal line on Earth that can traced back to King Zedekiah it would be more than “a problem” – it would prove
that God does not exist – or that if He does exist, He is a liar.

And those who deny the truth can never – not once - name an alternative royal dynasty.

They believe and teach that God is a liar – that He did not keep His promise to King David that he, starting with one of his very
own sons, would never, ever lack a descendant on the throne ruling over some portion of Israel.

8.  Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the Lord of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from
following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel:
9.  And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a
great name, like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.
10.  Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and
move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,
11.  And as since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest from all thine
enemies. Also the Lord telleth thee that he will make thee an house.
12.  And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed
out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.
13.  He shall build an house for my name, and I will stablish the throne of his kingdom for ever.
14.  I will be his father, and he shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes
of the children of men:
15.  But my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I put away before thee.
16.  And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.
 2
Samuel 7.8-16

How did God’s mercy depart from Saul?? By Saul’s dynasty failing.

King David’s dynasty – his “royal house” has never failed and never will.

And don’t try to say this promised is fulfilled in Christ. There was apx. 587 years between King Zedekiah and the birth of Jesus –
did God lie during this time?

And Jesus still has not taken control of the throne – He will do this when He returns and takes control of the Earth from Satan –
it’s ruler.

Who is fulfilling the promise to David right now??

28.  My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
29.  His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven.
30.  If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments;
31.  If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments;
32.  Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.
33.  Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail.
34.  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.
35.  Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David.
36.  His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
37.  It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah.
Psalms 89.28-37


This princess, Tea-Tephi, married the  king of Ireland, who also happened to be a descendant of Judah through  Zarah, Judah's
younger son (Genesis 38:30), and so both branches of the  kingly line were established as the Royal House of Ireland.  This
kingdom  was transferred to Scotland and then to England with James I (James VI of  Scotland) in 1603.  Queen Elizabeth II of
Great Britian, therefore is a  direct descendant of King David and recipient of his throne." (D. Olinger,  _British Israelism_, Bob
Jones University Press)    5.  "Jeremiah also brought with him in 569 B.C. the liafail, or Jacob's  pillow-stone (Genesis 28:18)
which had been used as the coronation stone of  the kings of Judah (II Kings 11:14 - "pillar").  This stone now rests in  the royal
coronation chair of Great Britain in Westminster Abbey.  All kings  and queens of Great Britain are crowned while sitting on this
chair."  (D. Olinger)    6.  The transfer of the kingdom from James VI of
Scotland/James I England  (who was of the house of Tudor) to the present queen (Elizabeth II) who is  of the house of Windsor,
was achieved through a distant relative, the king  of Bohemia, and then back through George I into the house of Windsor.  This,  
British Israelists say, completes the lineage back to King David.

It is a historical fact that many of the early migrants to Ireland came from central Spain – the region known as “the Zaragossa”
(which means “stronghold of Zarah”.

In history they are known as ‘the Milesians’:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milesians_%28Irish%29

Those who have studied the ancient legends have made the mistake of thinking that the princesses were Egyptian – they were
not Egyptian, but rather they came from Egypt – and this is exactly where they are the last time they are mentioned in the Bible –
they are in Egypt with the prophet Jeremiah, and his scribe Baruch.

6.  Even men, and women, and children, and the king's daughters, and every person that Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard
had left with Gedaliah the son of Ahikam the son of Shaphan, and Jeremiah the prophet, and Baruch the son of Neriah.
7.  So they came into the land of Egypt: for they obeyed not the voice of the Lord: thus came they even to Tahpanhes.
 Jeremiah
43.6-7

This is the last the King’s daughters are mentioned – did God’s promise fail here?? Was this the end of David’s line of rulers??

Did Jeremiah just take the King’s daughters into the wilderness to die??

No, he took them and planted them in Ireland and married them to men from their Tribe, of a different clan, therefore fulfilling
prophecy:

25.  And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26.  Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and
abase him that is high.
27.  I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.
 Ezekiel
21.25-27

The “wicked prince” is Zedekiah, he was to lose the crown, and it was to be transferred from the ‘high house’ which is the
Pharez clan of Judah and it would be given to the “low house” of Judah the Clan of Zarah.

[This is why there is a “red hand of Zarah” (Genesis and a Star of David on
the old flag of Ireland]:



















27.  And it came to pass in the time of her travail, that, behold, twins were in her womb.
28.  And it came to pass, when she travailed, that the one put out his hand: and the midwife took and bound upon his hand a
scarlet thread, saying, This came out first.
29.  And it came to pass, as he drew back his hand, that, behold, his brother came out: and she said, How hast thou broken
forth? this breach be upon thee: therefore his name was called Pharez.
30.  And afterward came out his brother,
that had the scarlet thread upon his hand: and his name was called
Zarah
.  Genesis 38.27-30

This was done by taking a “tender twig” off the “highest branch” of the royal line and grafting it into the Clan of Zarah by
Marriage – this marriage because it was within the Tribe allowed the daughters to inherit the throne – in accordance with Torah
Law (Numbers 36.6-12).

22.  Thus saith the Lord God; I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of
his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:
23.  In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and
under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell.
24.  And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have
dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it.  
 Ezekiel 17.22-24

The throne (and the Lia-fail) were overturned from Jerusalem to Ireland, from Ireland to Scotland, and then it was overturned to
England and it will not be overturned again until the LORD comes and He will take it over.

The planting of the Kings daughters in Ireland was the second part of Jeremiah’s commission from the LORD, he was to start out
by bring down Judah:

10. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to
throw down, to build, and to plant.
  Jeremiah 1.10

And he was going to build up the House of Joseph + and David’s line.


7. The eventual emigration to America was said to have occurred with the  pilgrims on the Mayflower.

It occurred before, during, and after the Mayflower, starting with the Vikings who were of the Tribe of Dan. In Hebrew the word
“ish” means man – ‘Danish’ literally means Dan-man, and one of the Lost Tribes was named Dan. ‘Denmark’ means ‘Dan’s Mark’.


8.  Because the Northern and Southern tribes are believed to have separated, (like the Bible says, btw)  there is therefore a
great emphasis placed on the distinction that British  Israelists say exists between the use of the terms "Israel" and "Judah".   

Do you doubt that Israel and Judah are two different nations?

All you have to do is look at the map in the back of your Bible:






























                                                                                                                                                      












                                                  






                                                                                                                                    From a Ryrie Study Bible



Herbert W. Armstrong states : we want to impress here that Israel and Judah are not two names for the same nation.  They were
and still are, and shall be until the Second Coming of Christ, two separate nations.  The House of Judah always means Jews.  
This distinction is vital if we are to understand prophecy. Because most so-called Bible students are ignorant of this basic
distinction they are unable to rightly understand prophecy!  The next place where the term "Jew" is mentioned in the Bible, the
House of Israel had been drawn out in captivity, lost from view, and the term only applies to those of the House of Judah.  There
are no exceptions in the Bible.  Now, once an unscriptural perspective has been taken, the next step is to  find a scripture
which will support that doctrine.  

The term “Israel” can be used in reference to all the tribes or it can men just the northern tribes – it is a matter of context.

The term “Judah”, “Jews”, “Zion”, or “Jerusalem”, can ONLY mean the southern tribes.

The term “Joseph” is only used referring to the northern tribes, same with “Ephraim”, “Manasseh”, + “Samaria”.

When the terms Israel and Judah are used at the same time the context is easy to understand, for instance in Hosea there is an
end time prophecy regarding Israel, Ephraim, Judah, and the Sabbath Keeping Christians all in one sentence:

Ephraim compasseth me about with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit: but Judah yet ruleth with God, and is faithful with
the saints.
Hosea 10.12

Or when the Kingdoms were at war against each other:

16.  So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we
in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel
departed unto their tents.
17.  But as for the children of Israel which dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them.
18.  Then king Rehoboam sent Adoram, who was over the tribute; and all Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. Therefore
king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
19.  
So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day.
20.  And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the
congregation, and made him king over
all Israel: there was none that followed the house of David, but
the tribe of Judah only
.
21.  And when Rehoboam was come to Jerusalem,
he assembled all the house of Judah, with the tribe of Benjamin, an
hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men, which were warriors,
to fight against the house of Israel, to bring the
kingdom again to Rehoboam the son of Solomon.
22.  But the word of God came unto Shemaiah the man of God, saying,
23.  Speak unto Rehoboam, the son of Solomon, king of Judah, and unto all the house of Judah and Benjamin, and to the
remnant of the people, saying,
24.  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. They hearkened therefore to the word of the Lord, and returned to depart, according to the word of the
Lord.
 1 Kings 12.16-24

The context is not always so clear.

Ephraim is the leading tribe of Israel – it received the birthright blessings of wealth and prosperity and inherited the name
“Israel”, but lost their knowledge of who they were because they served Baal and were carried off into slavery and never heard
of again – this is the U.S – and we have bought into the lies of Sunday worship – which is commanded by Baal.

Our older brother is Manasseh. Jacob put Ephraim over Manasseh, and Ephraim received a double share over Manasseh. And
Joseph’s share was double that of the others to begin with.

Judah is the Jewish people – they have kept the eternal sign of being the LORD’s people.

And the saints are those who have held fast to God’s Commandments, and have Jesus’ faith by receiving the His Holy Spirit –
they have also held fast to God’s eternal sign of who is His people –
The 7th Day Sabbath.

This is how they can be recognized:

Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  Revelation
14.12

The “saints” have rejected the man made commandments of the image of the 4th beast of Daniel, the Roman Catholic
Church, which commands the observance of ancient Babylonian paganism = Sunday, Xmas, Easter, Lent, Valentines,
Halloween, etc., and  instead have held fast to God’s Law.

The key verses for  British Israelism is II Kings 17:18-23 - "Therefore the Lord was angry with  Israel and removed them out of His
sight, there was none left but the tribe  of Judah only."  Here "out of His sight" is interpreted as "disappeared  into oblivion".  
"There was none left but the tribe of Judah only" is  interpreted as "the descendants of Judah are the only tribes in  existence
today."   

The story of the Tribes of Israel literally goes from one end of the Bible to the other From Genesis to Revelation. In order to
examine the "key verses" it takes multiple volumes.

EVIDENCE FOR THE MIGRATION OF ISRAEL TO THE NORTH AND EAST  
Geographical Names.      There are many names of towns in Europe which have names similar in sound  to the "lost" tribes, e.g.
Danube, Dneister, Don, Dneiper, Denmark, Danzig  are claimed to be possible towns through which the tribe of Dan passed.  
However, by this piece of evidence, it could be suggested that Dan also  went through Vietnam - Danang, DienBien Phu, Don
Duong and so forth.    Abraham's Name.      Abraham's name was to be called "Great" (Gensis 12:2).  British  Israelists believe this
is why the name "Great Britain" arose.    The White Cliffs.      In Isaiah 66:19 the word "Tarshish" means "white border".  This is
taken  as referring to the White Cliffs of Dover.    The Dream.      The apocyryphal book of II Esdras describes a dream in chapter
13 in which  there is a miraculous parting of the Euphrates river into Armenia where the  10 tribes seemingly remain.  However
this evidence must be disregarded as  Josephus records in Antiquities XI v2 that the ten tribes of the captivity  were still in
Mesopotamia in the first century AD after Esdras was  written, and 750 years after British Israelists claim that they had left for  
the north and the east. (Josephus was saying that the Lost Tribes had not come back from Mesopotamia – he knew this, he had
no way to know where they had  migrated to)   The Union Jack.      The Union Jack is claimed to be an abbreviation for "union of
Jacob".  The Oxford English Dictionary states that the Union Jack was so named because  of its size - apparantly "jack" was the
word used to denote anything small.    Isaac = Saxon  and   British = Men of the Covenant      By removing the letter "I" from
Isaac, Herbert Armstrong derives the word  "saac" which combines with the word "son" to form "Saxon", i.e. "British".  His logic
is that "I" should be removed as the Hebrews omitted the vowels  in their writing.  This of course, should also require the "a"'s
to be  removed.  The name "Isaac" is in reality anyway a latinsed form of the  Hebrew name "Yitschak" (as in the late Yitschak
Rabin), which would be  significantly more difficult for
Armstrong to twist.    "Berith" is Hebrew for the word "Covenant" while "Ish" is Hebrew for "man".  If you join the two, British
Israelists claim you obtain the word "British"  which means "men of the Covenant".  There is, however, no significant  
relationship between Hebrew and English.    

None of the linguistic evidence is conclusive – but taken in it’s entirety is makes a very strong case.

For one there are entire phrases that are the same in Hebrew and Welsh and many, many words – to the point
where a Hebrew speaker and a Welsh speaker can have a limited communication.

“Brit” in Hebrew means “covenant”

“Ish” means “man”

British in Hebrew literally means “Covenant man” – and God’s Covenant is with With Israel and Judah.

“Dan” was the name of one of the Lost Tribes.

“Danish” literally means “man of Dan”.

The main rivers in Europe all named after Dan; the Danube, Dneister, Dneiper, + Don, and history shows they were traveled by
the Vikings = the Danish

In Hebrew the words “brit am” used, twice in Isaiah, means “covenant of the people”.

How many English readers could look at the term “Brit-Am” and think it was speaking of anything other than the U.S. and Britain.

And this is only the beginning – Yair Davidiy has written entire books on the many words and family names.

Herodatus.      A vital piece of information can be seen from the historical records of  Herodatus.  He claims that a fair-haired,
fair-skinned people settled on  the shores of the Black Sea (there is, however, no evidence to connect the  ten dark-haired,
olive-skinned tribes with those recorded by Herodatus).  There is absolutely no connection between the ten tribes in
Mesopotamia and  the tribes around the Black Sea.    EVIDENCE AGAINST THE MIGRATION TO THE NORTH AND EAST    The Stone
of Scone.      British Israelists make the claim that the stone under the coronation  chair is the stone that the builders rejected. I
have never heard anyone make this claim God strictly forbade the  use of hewn stones in altars (Exodus 20:25).  

When the writer states there is no evidence to connect the peoples between the Caspian and Black Seas with the Lost Tribes of
Israel he is calling the Bible a liar, for scripture tells us exactly where the Lost Tribes were settled:

5.  Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years.
6.  In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah
and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.
  2 Kings 17.5+6

This is exactly where Herodatus was speaking of, the area south of and in between the Black and Caspian Seas, the people who
later became  as "Celts".

I have never heard of anyone saying the Lia-fail is an altar stone.

He has no sources for his false accusations.

This stone was probably not the coronation altar of the Old Testament kings.  

Here the writer admits that it may be the Coronation Stone !!

Secondly, however, Professor A.C. Ramsey of the Geology Department of  London University inspected the stone and identified
it as red sandstone,  probably of Scottish origin.  

The Professor looked at the Lia-fail in 1865 and he said “probably” – how scientific is that? And even if the stone originated
in Scotland – how does that prove that the LORD did not put it in Bethel ?? – it doesn’t.

The writer of The Expose' apparently doesn't believe the LORD God is capable of moving a stone a few thousand miles. Pitiful.

Perhaps the LORD wanted to give Jacob a sample of the new land his descendants would eventually inherit – as He promised
King David apx. 450 years after they arrived in the Holy Land?

That is IF the stone originated in Scotland - the writer of The Expose' has offered no evidence at all that the stone came from
anywhere other than Bethel in the land of Israel.

9.        Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and
move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime,
 2 Samuel 7.10

Here the LORD promised King David that Israel would be moved only once and they would be planted and not moved off their
land again.

Judah was not promised new land, and they were not promised not to be moved more than once.

Israel was banished from the Promised Land – Judah was only dispersed – but they were allowed to return:

12.  And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the
dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
13.  The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and
Judah shall not vex Ephraim.
 Isaiah 11.11-13

And BOTH will return when the LORD sets up His ensign.

The nearest red sandstone to Bethel, where  Jacob found his stone is in Petra, nearly one hundred miles to the south;  the
stone around Bethel where Jacob slept is white limestone.  

The Lia-fail doesn't look "red" to me - does it look "red" to you??






















I have found some interesting Bible Codes on this subject:

http://www.lumberguy.net/BCDolmens.html

http://www.exodus2006.com/JimWright/Lia-fail-paper1-1.htm

Israel = Jews = Hebrews      From Genesis chapters 1 to 11, God is working on a whole world basis.  In  Genesis 12 God begins to
work through a man named Abram (later Abraham).  The term "Hebrew" was first applied to Abraham and could also be applied  
to all of his physical descendants (Genesis 14:13).    The term "Israel" was introduced in connection with Abraham's grandson,  
Jacob (Genesis 32:28).    A third term "Judah" was used in relation to one of Jacob's sons (Genesis  29:35) - Judah was still part
of "Israel" - Genesis
49:28 - "All these are  the twelve tribes of Israel."    The term "Jew" was derived from the name of Judah and was first used in  II
Kings 16:6.    A member of the tribe of Judah was called a "Jew", and as a descendant of  Jacob he was also called an "Israelite";
and as a descendant of Abraham he  was also called a "Hebrew".  All of these terms were applied to the apostle  Paul
(Philippians 3:5; Acts 21:39; 22:3; II Corinthians 11:22).    The division of Solomon's Kingdom made it common to use the name
"Israel"  in referring to the ten Northern Tribes and to use the name "Judah" in  referring to the two Southern tribes.  

As I explained before it is a matter of context – the Lost Tribes are never called Jews, Jewish, or of Judah.


EVIDENCE AGAINST THE MIGRATION TO BRITAIN      The Assyrians deported the majority of the captured people of the Northern  
Kingdom and mixed the remainder with five other nations (Babylon, Ava,  Hamath, Sepharvain and Cuthah).  It was a military
tactic for subduing the  conquered people.

Nowhere in the Bible or history does there occur a mixing of the Lost Tribes and the men of Babylon, Hamath, Sepharvain, or
Cuthah.

To the contrary the Bible and history show the Lost Tribes being moved into the land of these people. And the inhabitants of
those lands were moved into the land of the Lost Tribes.

It was this mixture of the nations that made the full-blooded Jews avoid dealings with the Samaritans.

It was not the tactic of the Assyrians to mix the various conquered peoples – they would conquer a people – be careful not to
destroy the cities and move other people into those cities and heavily tax them, some were used as personal slaves or put into
the military, but in general they peoples were settled together in the lands the Assyrians had taken from others.

This is exactly what happened to the Lost Tribes, the Bible tells us where they were settled:

5.  Then the king of Assyria came up throughout all the land, and went up to Samaria, and besieged it three years.
6.  In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah
and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.
  2 Kings 17.5+6

All these areas are on the south side of the Caspian and Black Seas, the land of the Cimmerians according the Assyrians = the
people of Samaria

Jews avoid dealings with the Samaritans.   This because the Samaritans were the descendants of the People who were moved
in, in place of Israel, they were from:

23.  Until the Lord removed Israel out of his sight, as he had said by all his servants the prophets. So was Israel carried away out
of their own land to Assyria unto this day.
24.  And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim,
and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities
thereof.
 2 Kings 17.23+24

Some authors take the position that since the word "tribe" (shebet) is  also translated "sceptre" in several passages (e.g.
Genesis 49:10) it may  refer to the ruling class, or the leadership, rather than the entire  population.  This theory may be
supported by the fact that Sargon II himself  claimed to deport only 27,290 people.  Sargon's inscription describing the  
deportation has been found at Khorsabad in modern-day Iraq (see James B.  Pritchard, _Ancient Near Eastern Texts_, 1950 ed., p.
284-5).    This means that not all of the ten tribes were taken into captivity by the  Assyrians but rather that some remained who
were never "lost".   

No it does not - this was the final deportation of the exile that took over 100 years to be accomplished.

SPECIAL FEATURES ABOURT THE DISPERSAL OF THE JEWS    a)  They were scattered among the nations, however they have
always managed  to keep their unique national identity.  Numbers 23:9 (not reckoning itself  among the nations) and Hosea 8:4-8
speaks specifically of Israel, the  Northern Kingdom.   

Yes it is - it is speaking to the inhabitants of the U.S. today - those who serve Baal on Sunday - like the writer of the Expose'

b)  Compared with the populations of other countries, they are relatively few  in number (Deuteronomy 4:27).

And we were few in number - until our time of punishment was up and we started to blossom - as prophesied over and over
again.

Their population can certainly not be  compared with the 4-6 hundred million of the British Isles/USA.  

We were to be as numerous as the grains of sand on the beach, and as numerous as the stars in heaven - a vast multitude:

17.  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 sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
18.  And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
 Genesis 22.17+18

There is  no more heterogeneous nation in the world than that of the United States.  

Israel was always a "melting pot":

37.  And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside
children.
38.  And
a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.   Exodus 12.37+38

Or did the "Ephraimites" (Englishmen) become "Manassites" merely by crossing  the ocean in the Mayflower?    c)  Did the
dispersal of the "ten lost tribes" disorient them enough to  start writing from left to right instead of right to left as was done for  
centuries?    THE KEY VERSE EXPLAINED      In the Palestinian Covenant there is a very special place for the Hebrews.  To be out
of His sight, indicates removal from _Palestine_ (Israel), i.e.  to be relocated or dispersed.  The strict keeping of genealogical
records by  the Hebrews would also prevent them from being "lost" and tends to indicate  that they were a tightly knit
community which did not mix with the Gentiles.

Here the writer is confusing the captivity of Israel and the captivity of Judah – it is correct that extensive records were kept –
and those records show just a few individuals, no where close to an entire tribe, returned from Babylon with the Jews and the
Talmud says the same thing – that there were only a few of the Lost Tribes present at the dedication of the Second Temple. And
these were the descendants of people who had fled to Judah from Israel before the Assyrians invaded and then were caught in
the Babylonian invasion, many years later.

The Talmud also says that some of the Lost Tribes settled in Western Europe:

http://britam.org/ShortRETURN.htm

There are those who say that this prophecy of Obadiah is referring to King Hezekiah in the Second Temple period but those who
think so are in error. It is obvious from Scripture that this term, i.e. House of Joseph, applies to the Kingdom of Israel who are
the Ten Tribes. They should be ashamed not to recognize this fact! The above verse proves it! When was the House of Joseph
like a flame devouring the stubble of Esau? Not in Biblical times! The Ten Tribes had already been exiled and they are still in
Exile, in the area of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath: “And this first exile of the children of Israel who are [now] from
Canaan unto Zarephath” [Obadiah 1:20]. [Rashi, Iben Ezra, Radak and others say that Zarephath means France, Abarbanel says it
means France and Britain]. These places are at the extremes of the north. The verse continues, “and the captivity of Jerusalem,
which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south” [Obadiah 1:20]. Those who were exiled to “Sepharad” [meaning
Spain] were the Jews of Jerusalem who were taken away by Titus and Vespasian when the Second Temple was destroyed by the
Romans and not before then. The others were the Ten Tribes who were exiled in the First Exile. These have not returned as has
been claimed.

Editor’s Note: <<[[It says,
“Zarephath” according to Rabbinical Commentators (Rashi, Iben Ezra, Radak, and all Medieval authorities) refers to France or
more specifically northern France and probably included present-day Belgium and Holland. Abarbanel said that “Zarephath”
included both France and “Island of England” (i.e. Britain). ”The words translated in the KJ as “the captivity of this host” in
Hebrew [“Galut HaChail”] can also mean “the first exile” and so was the understanding of Rabbinical Commentators.]]>> End of

DID THEY REALLY ESCAPE?      When Babylon conquered Assyria, the slaves did not escape but rather had  a change of
masters.  

The Bible tells us where the Lost tribes were settled - history tells us where those people eventually migrated to - the Northeast
- read the link to the Cimmerians (a corruption of 'Samarians"):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cimmerians

This may seem too simplistic a solution but there is  much evidence for it in the numbers of the ten tribes that returned to  
Israel.    

There is no evidence whatsoever - as is demonstrated by his failure to cite any evidence at all!!

SPIRITUAL REFUGEES      The books of Ezra and Nehemiah tell of those who returned to Jerusalem,  and the book of Esther tells
of those who remained at Babylon.    If the tribes have really been lost then all further records of their  existance would not be
available.  It will therefore be necessary to examine  what happened prior to the captivity by Assyria and Babylon in order to see  
who returned from these captivities.    The following scriptures give direct evidence that the Southern Kingdom of  Judah was
in fact a mixture of the tribes of Judah and Benjamin (about which  all agree) and the other ten tribes (which were religious
"refugees" from  the Northern Kingdom) :        II Chronicles 11:13-17
- spitual refugees from the North      II Chronicles 15:9      - 913-872 B.C. during the reign of Asa      These scriptures show that
many from _all Israel_ left the Northern Kingdom  a long time before the Assyrian captivity.  Therefore the Southern Kingdom  
now was occupied by all twelve tribes.  Members from these twelve tribes  returned after the Babylonian captivity to Israel and
were never "lost".    Other scriptures include II Chronicles 17:2; 24:5; 30:1-7, 11, 18, 25;  31:1, 2, 6; 34:1-9; II Kings 25:6-12.    Which
tribes did return from the captivity to build the temple, the walls,  and the city itself?  Ezra refers to God's regathered people as
Israelites  40 times and as Jews 8 times.  Nehemiah refers to God's regathered people as  Israelites 22 times and as Jews 11
times.  Apart from this, the term "all  Israel" is used in Ezra 2:70; 6:17; 8:25, 35; 10:5 and in Nehemiah 7:73;  12:47.    It is therefore
evident that the terms "Jew" and "Israel" are interchangeable.  

As I wrote before it is a matter of context – when you have Israel and Judah at war with each other – with separate royal
dynasties it is obvious they are separate entities.

All through this he is again confusing the Babylonian Exile of the Jews with the Assyrian captivity of the Lost Tribes,
he doesn't understand the matter well enough to tell the two matters apart.

If Jesus Christ is only "King of the Jews" (the tribe of  Judah only) in Matthew 27:37, then He is not the one that is the Messiah.  

I have never heard anyone say that Jesus is King of only the Jews, perhaps this is taught by the hatemongers, but Jesus isn’t
King of Israel or Judah right now – He will be King over Unified Israel – after He has rejoined them during the millennium:

12.  Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause
you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.
13.  And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up out of your graves,
14.  And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have
spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
15.  The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16.  Moreover, thou son of man,
take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of
Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and
for all the house of Israel his companions:
17.  And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
18.  And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what
thou meanest by these?
19.  Say unto them, 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.
20.  And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21.  And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they
be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22.  And
I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall
be king to them all: and
they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided
into two kingdoms any more at all.
23.  Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their
transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall
they be my people, and I will be their God.
24.  And
David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall
also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
  Ezekiel 37.12-24

The rejoining does not occur until the LORD returns and the dead start to rise.

Where are the Lost Tribes NOW??

The Messiah needs to be "King of Israel" (the twelve tribes) - Matthew 27:42.

Of course who says different – no sources??

He is trying to discredit the truth by issuing general false accusations against those who proclaim the truth. And he can’t
provide even one source of anyone teaching this belief.

SPECIFIC SCRIPTURAL EVIDENCE OF THE RETURN OF THE TRIBES      
The following are just some of the many verses possible :        Ezra 2:5  Arah from the tribe of Asher        - I Chronicles 7:39,
40           2:10 Bani from the tribe of Gad          - Nehemiah 7:15           2:21 Bethlehem from the tribe of Zebulum - Joshua 19:15-
16           2:26 Ramah from the tribe of Nephtala    - Joshua 19:32-39           2:29 Nebo from the tribe of Reuben       - I Chronicles 5:1-
8        Luke       2:36  Asher in the Lord      Acts      26:6-7 The twelve tribes      James      1:1   The twelve tribes      I Peter    1:1   The
twelve tribes      Revelation 7:4-8 Jews sealed in the middle of the seven years of great tribulation.  Dan is replaced by Levi,

(here the writer has made a basic and obvious mistake - Dan is left off the list, but it IS NOT replaced by Levi - the sons of
Joseph receive a double share, the birthright blessing of the firstborn

but Dan does reappear during the millenial reign of Christ      Romans    11:26  All Israel will be saved, as it is written.      All Israel
(not just Judah as British-Israelism contends)

Who ever said that only Judah is saved?? Here he is making things up - AGAIN - and he can not cite anyone who believes this.

is temporarily  set aside until the "fullness of the Gentiles come in" according to  Romans 11:25-27.    BRITISH ISRAELISM
DISTORTS PROPHECY      Adherents of British Israelism appear to have a propensity for date-setting.

I bet I can name 10 date setters who don't understand who the Lost Tribes are to every one that anyone with understanding they
can list who understands who the Lost Tribes are.

Lt. Col. W.G. MacKendrick in his book, "The destiny of the British Empire and  the USA (1921), dated Armageddon from 1928 to
1936.  He further states that  the US should seek help from Japan in the battle, since the Japanese, too,  are Israelites (as
"samurai" sounds like "Samaria") (D. Olinger).    Literally scores of prophecies and promises would have to be ignored or  
"spiritualised" in order to "make them fit" the British-Israel scheme  of things, for example, Deuteronomy 4:27-31; Amos 9:11-15;
Hosea 1:10-11;  2:14-23; 3:4-5;
Isaiah 2:1-4; 14:1-3; Ezekiel 20:33-44; 34:11-31; 34:40-48;  Micah 4:1-7; 7:9-20; Zechariah 2:4-13; 3:1-10; 8:1-23; 8:12-14.   

I don't see how any of these prophecies are "spititualised" by understanding the truth - in fact the truth is the exact opposite -
in order to believe the writer of The Expose' you must believe that many, many prophecies and promises from God have not
been literally fulfilled.

The first 69 "weeks" of Daniel's vision (Daniel 9) applies specifically to  the nation of Israel.  The seventieth week likewise is
specifically for the  Israelites.  Much of God's dealings with these people will be distorted if  one is not even looking at the
proper nation to whom the promises apply !    ONE KINGDOM, ONE KING      In Ezekiel 37:15-28 God promises that He will unite all
twelve tribes in  the last days as part of His Covenant of Peace with them.  This prophecy  would be difficult to bring to pass if
the populations of Great Britain,  America, etc. needed to fit in the area from the River Nile to the Euphrates.

With God ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE - this man has so little faith in the power of God it is disgusting - or is he just desperately
grasping for straws in his hatred of the truth??

CONCLUSION      British Israelism is an erroneous teaching. LIE! However, its main danger is  the plethora of consequences it
has.
LIE! To hold to British-Israelism means that  one not only ignores factual history LIE!, but has to interpret significant  
portions of the Bible in a new "spiritualised" (i.e. allegorical) manner.
Only the allegories and parables!!  

1.  And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2.  Son of man, put forth a riddle, and
speak a parable unto the house of Israel;
3.  And say, Thus saith the Lord God; A great eagle with great wings, longwinged, full of feathers, which had divers colours,
came unto Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:
4.  He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into a land of traffick; he set it in a city of merchants.
5.  He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree.
6.  And it grew, and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof were
under him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs.
7.  There was also another great eagle with great wings and many feathers: and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward
him, and shot forth her branches toward him, that he might water it by the furrows of her plantation.
8.  It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a
goodly vine.
9.  Say thou, Thus saith the Lord God; Shall it prosper? shall he not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it
wither? it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or many people to pluck it up by the roots
thereof.
10.  Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper? shall it not utterly wither, when the east wind toucheth it? it shall wither in the
furrows where it grew.
11.  Moreover the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
12.  Say now to the rebellious house, Know ye not what these things mean? tell them, Behold, the king of Babylon is come to
Jerusalem, and hath taken the king thereof, and the princes thereof, and led them with him to Babylon;
13.  And hath taken of the king's seed, and made a covenant with him, and hath taken an oath of him: he hath also taken the
mighty of the land:
  Ezekiel 17.1-13

22.  Thus saith the Lord God; I will also take of the highest branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of
his young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:
23.  In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and
under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell.
24.  And all the trees of the field shall know that I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have
dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it.
  Ezekiel 17.22-24

It leads one to a false understanding of God's purposes for Israel and the  Jewish people
LIE!, and causes one to distort
significant prophetical passages in  the Bible.
LIE!      I Timothy 1:4 " ... take no heed to fables and endless genealogies, which  
minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in the faith".

There are many, many verses regarding the return of the Lost Tribes – they are prophecies looking to the day the LORD sets up
His ensign and recalls the Tribes home and they will follow the ‘dolmens’ to find their way home, from the north and the west
and from “the land of thistles”:

20.  Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my
bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the Lord.
21.  Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway, even the way which thou wentest: turn
again, O virgin of Israel, turn again to these thy cities.
 Jeremiah 31.20+21

http://www.lumberguy.net/BCDolmens.html

10.  They shall not hunger nor thirst; neither shall the heat nor sun smite them: for he that hath mercy on them shall lead them,
even by the springs of water shall he guide them.
11.  And I will make all my mountains a way, and my highways shall be exalted.
12.  Behold, these shall come from far: and, lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim.  
Isaiah
49.10-12

I found error in the very first paragraph of this paper – there is only one Tribe of Judah – not two – and the Nation of Judah was
made up of 3 Tribes - not two.

NOW, I challenge all who deny the truth show one error in this booklet:

http://www.garnertedarmstrong.ws/europe.htm

And tell me who has inherited the blessings due to Joseph.

And tell me who is sitting on David’s Throne RIGHT NOW.

The bottom line is: they have no answers.
