This recent exchange with a gentleman on the History Channel forum comes just in time to Thanksgiving Day…
The twelve tribes themselves are not of European origin
The Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Anglo-Saxons and the white peoples of northwestern Europe, are of Israelite origin. We are the so-called “Ten Lost Tribes”. We were taken captive by the Assyrians and later, as prophesied, migrated north and west in Europe and King David’s dynasty continues on Scepter Island.
Of the 12,000 from each tribe that will be taken on Judgment Day, how many do you think will be of mixed blood?
If they were so mixed up, the Holy Spirit would not have inspired John to write specifically about the unique tribes of Israel. Obviously, they are not “mixed” enough to disqualify them from being considered, in God’s eyes, this or that specific tribe of Israel. Undoubtedly we have married each other, but still this or that tribe dominates in our ancestry, having passed through several countries (we can say that we are English, Irish, Dutch) but still ISRAELITES.
When Revelation was written, the author probably had no idea that the Jews would have dispersed throughout the world as they have or would have married each other as they have married other peoples.
John was a prophet and the Holy Spirit undoubtedly inspired him to know the other prophecies in the Law and the Prophets that clearly predicted the reach and expansion of all the Twelve Tribes to the ends of the Earth: Not just Jews! The Jews are only a small part of the great family of Jacob-Israel.
It is written in Amos that we (the 10 northern tribes Kingdom of Israel) would migrate, examine the nations, and yet not lose our identity (in regards to our ethnic makeup, our basic DNA).
assuming you are a gentile
God’s mercy extends to all peoples, even though His plan calls the Jews (and Israelites) first and then the Gentiles. God has called our peoples, Jews and Jews, Israelites, to finally become his servant nation to bless all nations.
I am a Joe (descendant of Joseph / Anglo-Saxon heritage) as well as a Jew, scion of King David, as our family can be traced back to the British and Scottish royal families. I am also a descendant of two Mayflower Pilgrims, John and Priscilla Alden, and a collateral descendant of three American Presidents.
[The Scripture] It does not apply to the United States because they did not give us anything. We take everything we have from the natives
The United States was given primarily to the descendants of Joseph and the other northern tribes of Israel, with some Jews living among us (although God has given them a Jewish homeland). Just as ancient Israel had to be willing to fight to secure its inheritance, so do we. Sometimes we were more honorable than others, like Jacob with Esau, but regardless of the Manifest Destiny it was going to be and it was fulfilled in us. We don’t take from the natives because it wasn’t theirs to begin with; It belongs to our Great Creator God and whoever He gives it to, as it is His divine prerogative.
The various natives took each and they had a violent history towards different tribes and were carried away by their crude paganism. Some were more advanced than others.
Deuteronomy 6: 10-12
10 And it will come to pass that when the LORD your God brings you to the land that he swore to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you big and beautiful cities that you did not build, 11 houses full of all the good things that you did not fill, wells dug that you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees that you did not plant;When you have eaten and are satisfied, 12 then be careful, lest you forget the LORD …
We build the cities, we invent our gadgets and things, we build a gigantic economy, we pave the roads, we assemble a massive army, and so on. all by ourselves. God had nothing to do with these things
God works in, through, and for people at the same time. He warned us not to develop such an unhealthy and pompous attitude of imagining in vain that we were doing all these things without His help and inspiration, even giving ourselves the health to achieve great things. God has blessed our efforts. It is true that God helps those who help themselves. The “Protestant work ethic” is a biblical work ethic.
Deuteronomy 8: 9-20
9 a land where you will eat bread without scarcity, where you will lack nothing; a land whose stones are made of iron and from whose hills copper can be extracted. 10 When you have eaten and are satisfied, you shall bless the LORD your God for the good land that He has given you.
eleven “Be careful not to forget the LORD your God by not keeping his commandments, his judgments and his statutes that I command you today, 12 lest when you have eaten and are satisfied, and have built beautiful houses and live in them; 13 and when your cows and herds multiply, and your silver and gold multiply, and all that you have multiplies; 14 when your heart is lifted up and you forget the LORD your God … 17 then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the strength of my hand have earned me this wealth.’
18 And you will remember the LORD your God, because he is the one who gives you the power to get wealth, in order to confirm his covenant. who swore to your parents, as on this day. 19 Then it will come to pass that if you somehow forget the LORD your God and follow other gods, and serve and worship them, today I testify against you that you will certainly perish. 20 As the nations that the LORD destroys before you, so you will perish, because you do not obey the voice of the LORD your God.
As Abraham Lincoln warned, he said that we had forgotten our Great God and encouraged everyone to repent and pray that God could save our nation. They saved us that God could fulfill his many prophecies, his wonderful promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob about the peace and prosperity of their descendants because of OBEDIENCE OF ABRAHAM. But God has given us so many wonderful things and years and we have forgotten it as self-made men and women who imagine in vain that we do not need God and all this is our work, our hands’ work, so God, who controls. the weather – will take these things off our hands and show us how we are at His mercy to humble us and bring us back to Him and remind us to stay its commandments, its Holy Saturday and the biblical festivals, the “Jewish holidays”, and reject the replacement theology and pagan festivals of bloody Rome!
If we have to thank God for the invention of the airplane, then we have to thank Him for 9/11.
That is just ridiculous. What we do with a gift is our responsibility. Everything has the potential to be a blessing or a curse. God gives us free will to determine what we want for ourselves, what we will do with what we have been given: whether we will squander our inheritance or use it wisely, with an attitude of gratitude and loving obedience.
I see that he conveniently did not refer to the other verse I quoted, verse 24 which says:
1. Behold, the LORD makes the earth empty, devastates it, overthrows it, and scatters its inhabitants.
2. And it will happen that as happens with the people, so with the priest; As it is with the servant, so with his master; as it is with the maiden, so with her mistress; as it happens with the buyer, also with the seller; As with the lender, so with the borrower; as happens with the usury, so also with the payment of usury.
3. The land will be completely emptied and completely plundered, because the LORD has spoken this word. 4 The earth mourns and withers, the world languishes and withers, the haughty peoples of the earth languish.
13. When this happens: in the midst of the land among the people, it will be like the beating of an olive tree, and like the grape that is gleaned when the harvest is over. 14 They will lift up their voices, they will sing to the majesty of the LORD, they will cry out from the sea. 15 Therefore glorify the LORD in the fires, the name of the LORD God of Israel in the islands of the sea. 16. From the farthest parts of the earth we have heard songs, glory to the righteous. But I said: My weakness, my weakness, woe is me! treacherous traitors have acted treacherously; yes, the treacherous traffickers have acted very treacherous. 17 Fear and pit and snare upon you, you inhabitant of the earth. 18 And it will come to pass that he who flees from the noise of fear will fall into the pit; and whoever comes out of the middle of the pit will be caught in the trap; for the windows on high are open, and the foundations of the earth shake. 19 The earth is completely destroyed, the earth completely destroyed, the earth is very shaken. 20 The earth will totter from side to side like a drunkard, and it will be tossed about like a hut; and his transgression will be heavy on him; and it will fall and never rise again.
These verses prophesy the destruction of everything and everyone, which does not match what you are telling me.
I didn’t ignore it and addressed it. Humanity will reach a point of no return: except by divine intervention, no flesh would be saved alive, no human being would remain, just as Yeshua and the Prophets predicted. Within that Scripture reveals survivors they are praising God, which I have highlighted.
Matthew 24: 21-22
21 For then there will be great tribulation [Time of Jacob’s Trouble]As it has not been since the beginning of the world until now, no, nor will it ever be. 22 AND unless Those days were shortened, no meat would be saved; but for the sake of the chosen [the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob] those days will be shortened.
Isaiah 1: 9
9 Unless the lord of hosts
He had left us a very small scrap or scraps,
We would have become like Sodom,
We would have become like Gomorrah.
Isaiah 43: 1-3
1 But now, thus says the LORD, who created you, O Jacob,
And he who formed you, O Israel:
“Do not fear, because I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name;
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you go through the fire, you won’t get burned,
Not even the flame will burn you.
3 For I am the LORD your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
Tell Egypt for your ransom,
Ethiopia and Seba in your place.
God always saves a remnant to keep alive His promise to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that He would be their God and the God of their descendants (which means they must always have some descendants). This GOOD NEWS that is why the first chapter of Beyond Babylon: the rise and fall of Europe is appropriately called, “Guaranteed Survival!”
