Someone Today Must Be Israel

Are we to guess at who might be true Israel today, or are there accurate methods by which we can positively identify who she is? As we diligently search the Scriptures, investigate the annals of history and review the evidence of anthropology and archaeology , we must admit that the probabilities of finding the lost Israelites within the peoples of Asia, Africa, or India are negligible. Seeking them among the Indians of North and South America is also futile for these people bear none of the marks of the "missing" Israelites. Russia is considered a mighty nation with the necessary millions of people, but lacks the racial and spiritual characteristics required to consider it a viable contender. Thus we are left with only two groups of people as possibilities: the Jews or the Celtic and Anglo-Saxon peoples.*

_______________________

*The Celts and Anglo-Saxons will be referred to as "Celto-Saxons" throughout the remainder of this book. This term refers to the Scandinavian, Germanic, Celtic, and kindred peoples who were dispersed throughout Europe, the British Isles, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Canada, and the United States of America.

_______________________

We will begin the search for Israel's identity in Scripture and then proceed to archaeology and history for confirmation of the Scriptural evidence. Most observers are content to let the Israelites remain lost, but logically it is inconceivable that these millions of people simply vanished from the face of the earth, particularly when God promised otherwise. Israel of old was identified by many marks, so if the Bible is accurate and God's word is true, then those marks should still identify Israel in these New Covenant times. There were other identifying clues that prophecy dictated would be manifested only in the distant future. We are now able to discern many of those clues because those prophecies have been and are being fulfilled.

When we turn to Scripture for marks which identify the Israelites, it can be quickly ascertained that there has been a case of mistaken identity. Whatever their motives are for claiming to be the "Chosen People," Jewish authorities and historians disavow any claim of being the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We must, therefore, look elsewhere for those "lost" Israelites. If the Jews are not Israel, then who is?

This and the following six chapters will identify the Scriptural characteristics and qualities belonging to Israel. Ask yourself: "Do these marks identify the Jews or the Celto-Saxons as Israel today?"

The national aspects of Israel will be examined in this and the next chapter. These aspects will be the first of many clues which will assist us in correctly identifying modern-day Israel.

Israel to Continue as a Nation Before Yahweh Forever

... when Abram was ninety-nine years old, YHWH appeared to Abram and said to him, "I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be blameless. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you, and I will multiply you exceedingly." And Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying, "As for Me, behold, My covenant is with you, and you shall be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham; for I will make you the father of a multitude of nations. For I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come forth from you. And I [YHWH] will establish My covenant between Me and you [Abraham] and your descendants [the Israelites] after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you." (Genesis 17:1-7)

... YHWH will not abandon His people [Israel] on account of His great name, because YHWH has been pleased to make you a people for Himself. (I Samuel 12:22)

[David to YHWH] ... Thou hast established for Thyself Thy people Israel as Thine own people forever, and Thou, O YHWH, hast become their God. (2 Samuel 7:24)

... Thy people Israel Thou didst make Thine own people forever, and Thou, O YHWH, didst become their God. And now, O YHWH, let the word that Thou hast spoken concerning Thy servant [King David] and concerning his house, be established forever, and do as Thou hast spoken. And let Thy name be established and magnified forever, saying, 'YHWH of hosts is the God of Israel [if God's name is still YHWH, then the Israelites are still His people], even a God to Israel; and the house of David Thy servant is established before Thee." (1 Chronicles 17:22-24)

"Once I [YHWH] have sworn by My holiness; I will not lie to David. His [Israelite] descendants shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before Me. It shall be established forever like the moon, and the witness in the sky is faithful." (Psalm 89:35-37)

O seed of Abraham, His servant, O sons of Jacob, His chosen ones! He is YH our God.... He [YHWH] has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations [at the very least 40,000 years], the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac. Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, [and] to Israel [all twelve tribes] as an everlasting covenant. (Psalm 105:6-10)

Israel has been saved by YHWH with an everlasting salvation; you will not be put to shame or humiliated to all eternity. (Isaiah 45:17)

... your [Israel's] husband is your Maker, whose name is YHWH of hosts; and your Redeemer is [Yeshua] the Holy One of Israel, Who is called the God of all the earth. For YHWH has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even like a wife of one's youth when she is rejected," says your God. "For a brief moment I [YHWH] forsook you [Israel], but with great compassion I will gather you. In an outburst of anger I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting loving kindness I will have compassion on you [Israel]," says YHWH your Redeemer. "For this is like the days of Noah to me; when I swore that the waters of Noah should not flood the earth again, so I have sworn that I will not be angry with you, nor will I rebuke you. For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but my lovingkindness will not be removed from you [Israel], and My covenant of peace will not be shaken," says YHWH who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:5-10)

Thus says YHWH, who gives the sun for light by day, and the fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night, who stirs up the sea so that its waves roar; YHWH of hosts is His name: "If this fixed order departs from before Me," declares YHWH, "then the offspring of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever." Thus says YHWH, "If the heavens above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out below, then I will also cast off all the offspring of Israel for all that they have done," says YHWH. (Jeremiah 31:35-37)

"...I [YHWH] will betroth you [divorced and gentilized Israel] to Me forever; Yes, I will betroth you to Me in righteousness and in justice, in loving kindness and in compassion .... And I will sow her for Myself in the land. I will also have compassion on her who has not obtained compassion, and I will say to those [divorced Israelites] who were not My people, 'You are My people!' And they [Israelites redeemed by Yeshua] will say, 'Thou art my God!... (Hosea 2:19-23)

Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel, and I am YHWH your God and there is no other; and My people [Israel] will never be put to shame. (Joel 2:27)

... He [Yeshua] will reign over the house of Jacob [Israel] forever, and His kingdom will have no end. (Luke 1:33)

It is clear that God Almighty has an everlasting purpose and plan for His Chosen People, the Israelites. Anyone who teaches that God has not kept at least a remnant of Israel's bloodline pure, and who teaches that God is no longer working with physical Israel today, is simply calling God a liar. Scripture establishes that Israel is to exist forever. Now it is just a matter of properly identifying Israel.

Israel to Become a Great and Mighty Nation

... YHWH said to Abram, "Go forth from your country, and from your relatives and from your father's house, to the land which I will show you; and I [YHWH] will make you [Abram] a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing; and I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families [nations and races] of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:1-3)

... Abraham [and his descendants, the Israelites] will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed. (Genesis 18:18)

... what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is YHWH our God whenever we [Israel] call on Him? Or what great nation is there that has statutes and judgments as righteous as this whole law which I [Moses] am setting before you [Israel] today?" (Deuteronomy 4:7-8)

"He [YHWH] shall set you [Israel] high above all nations which He has made, for praise, fame, and honor; and that you shall be a consecrated people to YHWH your God, as He has spoken." (Deuteronomy 26:19)

"In that day," declares YHWH, "I will assemble the lame, and gather the outcasts, even those whom I have afflicted. I will make the lame a remnant, and the outcasts [of Israel] a strong nation, and YHWH will reign over them in Mount Zion from now on and forever." (Micah 4:6-7)

Which Nation Is Considered Great Today?

Jews

Those who call themselves Jews today never have been and never will be a great nation. As a matter of fact, the Israeli State in Palestine could not even exist if it were not for the billions of American taxpayers' dollars sent in relief every year to keep her afloat. This was admitted by Aaron Zelman, a Jew, who said:

Without continuing American aid, [the modem-day State of] Israel would perish.1

In his book The Other Side of the Coin, Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal reported the statistics of America's aid to the State of Israel:

During the first fourteen years of [the State of] Israel's existence, the U.S. government contributed $850 million, mostly outright grants, the highest rate of American aid given to any country on a per capita basis of the recipient country. In 1959, for example, the U.S. taxpayer provided more public aid to Israel per Israeli ($15.00 each) than he did per American in federal grants to our own states under the entire grant system ....2

...U.S. government aid [to the Israeli Government] during this period [1948 through 1962] has been at the per capita rate of $39.70 per year.3

This situation has not improved. The New American View, January 1, 1992, ran an article entitled "Robbing America for the Jewish State," which revealed where billions of our tax dollars are being sent:

American taxpayers have forked over no less than $77 billion (actually closer to $100 billion dollars) to [the State of] Israel since 1967, according to a recent report in the New York Times. This amounts to about $16,500 for every man, woman and child in the Jewish state....

According to studies done by the Congressional Research Service (CRS): "[The State of ] Israel is not economically self-sufficient, and relies upon foreign assistance and borrowing to maintain its economy. Since 1976, Israel has been the largest annual recipient of U.S. foreign assistance, and is the largest cumulative recipient.4

Completely counter to the spirit and intent of U.S. foreign aid, Israel has no intention of using U.S. aid to become independent. Rather, [the State of] Israel seeks to be a permanent ward of the U.S. "Israel has requested a multi-year aid commitment rather than a single-year program."

According to the CRS, [the State of] Israel cannot maintain the standard of living it now enjoys without the permanent infusion of U.S. aid....

What this means is that beyond everything Israel can trade, sell or beg, including all the foreign aid from the U.S., reparations from Germany, and contributions from the diaspora Jews, the Zionist state [of Israel] is still billions of dollars in the hole.5

In his book Jews Must Live Jewish author, Samuel Roth, confessed that Jews are parasites devouring the world's resources:

Our major vice of old, as of today, is parasitism. We [Jews] are a people of vultures living on the labor and the good nature of the rest of the world.6

Another Jew, Maurice Samuel, admitted in an offhanded way in his book You Gentiles that the Jews are not a great and mighty people:

I do not believe that we Jews are powerful enough to threaten your way of life seriously. We are only powerful enough to irritate, to disturb your conscience, and to break here and there the rhythmic rush of your ideas.7

Many Jews express their lack of greatness as a people or nation, and their consequent dependence on larger and greater nations.

Celto-Saxons

Genesis 12:2 finds Yahweh promising that He would make Abraham a great nation and that He would bless him and make his name great. Is it just by coincidence that within the great nations of Celto-Saxon heritage, one of its primary nations is called Great Britain?

Which nation during the last two-hundred years of history has been considered the greatest of nations? The United States of America - and history verifies that this nation at its inception was almost exclusively a Celto-Saxon nation. Daniel Webster called attention to its common racial origin in a speech he delivered in Buffalo, New York, on May 22, 1851:

From the mouth of the St. Johns [River] to the confines of Florida, there existed, in 1775, thirteen colonies of English origin, planted at different times, and coming from different parts of England.... But they [these American colonies] were all of English origin.8

In another speech before the New England Society of New York in 1843, in commemoration of the landing of the Pilgrims, Daniel Webster paid tribute to Celto-Saxon power and influence:

From this seminal [original] principle, and from a handful, a hundred saints [Celto-Saxon Christians], blessed of God and ever honored of men, landed on the shores of Plymouth and elsewhere along the coast, united ... in the process of time, with the settlement at Jamestown, has sprung this great people of which we are a portion.9

Now, Gentlemen, I do not know what practical views or what practical results may take place from this great expansion of the power of the two branches of Old England. It is not for me to say. I only can see, that on this continent all is to be Anglo-American from Plymouth Rock to the Pacific seas, from the north pole to California. That is certain; and in the Eastern world, I only see that you can hardly place a finger on a map of the world and be an inch from an English settlement.

Gentlemen if there be anything in the supremacy of races, the experiment now in progress will develop it. If there be any truth in the idea, that those [Celto-Saxons] who issued from the great Caucasian fountain, and spread over Europe, are to react on India and on Asia, and to act on the whole Western world, it may not be for us, nor our children, nor our grandchildren to see it, but it will be for our descendants of some generation to see the extent of that progress and dominion of the favored races.10

At the conclusion of Mr. Webster's speech, Mr. Aldham, a visiting member of the English Parliament, rose to add these words:

It is impossible for any stranger to witness such a scene as this without the greatest interest. It is the celebration of an event which already stands recorded as one of the most interesting and momentous occurrences which ever took place in the annals of our race. And an Englishman especially cannot but experience the deepest emotion as he regards such a scene. Every thing which he sees ... remind[s] him most impressively of that community of ancestry which exists between his own countrymen and that great [Celto-Saxon] race which peoples this continent, and which, in enterprise, ingenuity, and commercial activity, - in all the elements indeed of a great and prosperous nation [America], - is not exceeded, perhaps not equalled, by any other nation on the face of the globe.11

On May 8, 1783, Pastor Ezra Stiles preached a sermon commemorating the anniversary of his appointment as President of Yale University. Although it appears that he did not discern or completely understand the literal fulfillment of Israel's migration to these shores, Pastor Stiles based his sermon on this text from Deuteronomy:

... to make thee [Israel] high above all nations which He [YHWH] hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto YHWH thy God, as He hath spoken. (Deuteronomy 26:19 KJV)

The following excerpts from Pastor Ezra Stiles' sermon capture the vision which many of America's great churchmen had for this planting of God's vine in the wilderness:

... I have assumed the text only as introductory to a discourse upon the political welfare of God's [Celto-Saxon] American Israel, and as allusively prophetic of the future prosperity and splendor of the United States.12

Already does the new constellation of the United States begin to realize this glory. It [Celto-Saxon America] has already risen to an acknowledged sovereignty among the republics and kingdoms of the world. And we have reason to hope, and, I believe, to expect, that God has still greater blessings in store for this vine which his own right hand hath planted, to make us high among the nations in praise, and in name, and in honor. The reasons are very numerous, weighty, and conclusive.13

Our degree of population is such as to give us reason to expect that this will become a great people.... This will be a great, a very great nation.... Should this prove a future fact, how applicable would be the text, when the Lord shall have made his American Israel high above all nations which he has made, in numbers, and in praise, and in name, and in honor!14

And thus the [Celto-Saxon] American Republic, by illuminating the world with truth and liberty, would be exalted and made high among the nations, in praise, and in name, and in honor. I doubt not this is the honor reserved for us.15

As early as 1776, in a sermon before the Honorable Council and the Honorable House of Representatives in New England, Pastor Samuel West had already noted the greatness of America:

Our [Celto-Saxon] fathers fled from the rage of prelatical [religious] tyranny and persecution, and came into this land [America] in order to enjoy liberty of conscience, and they have increased to a great people.16

In 1812, Thomas Jefferson predicted America's future greatness:

I do believe we shall continue to grow, to multiply and prosper, until we exhibit an association powerful, wise, and happy beyond what has yet been seen by men.17

The previous quotations are just a few of many which testify to America's greatness. No one can deny that wherever the Celto-Saxon peoples have migrated, greatness of some sort has almost always followed them.

Israel to Become a Vast Multitude of People

I [YHWH] will make your [Abram's] descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if anyone can number the dust of the earth, then your descendants can also be numbered. (Genesis 13:16)

... He took him outside and said, "Now look toward the heavens, and count the stars, if you are able to count them." And He [YHWH] said to him [Abram], "So shall your descendants be." (Genesis 15:5)

"...I will greatly bless you [Abram], and I [YHWH] will greatly multiply your descendants as the stars of the heavens, and as the sand which is on the seashore; and your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies." (Genesis 22:17)

... they [Rebekah's brother and mother] blessed Rebekah and said to her, "May you, our sister, become thousands of ten thousands, and may your descendants possess the gate of those who hate them." (Genesis 24:60)

"...I [YHWH] will multiply your [Isaac's] descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 26:4)

... YHWH appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you [Isaac], and multiply your descendants, for the sake of [My promise to] My servant Abraham." (Genesis 26:24)

[Isaac to Jacob/Israel] "...may God Almighty bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, that you may become a company of peoples."(Genesis 28:3)

"Your [Jacob/Israel's] descendants shall be like the dust of the earth, and you shall spread out to the west and to the east and to the north and to the south; and in you and in your descendants shall all the families [nations and races] of the earth be blessed." (Genesis 28:14)

"...Thou didst say, 'I [YHWH] will surely prosper you, and make your [Jacob/Israel's] descendants as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude."' (Genesis 32:12)

...Israel [Jacob] stretched out his right hand and laid it on the head of Ephraim, who was the younger [son of Joseph], and his left hand on (Joseph's eldest son] Manasseh's head, crossing his hands, although Manasseh was the first-born. And he [Jacob/Israel] blessed Joseph [his son], and said, "[YHWH] The God before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, the God who has been my shepherd all my life to this day, the angel who has redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and may my name live on in them, and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and may they [Jacob's grandsons and their descendants] grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth." (Genesis 48:14-16)

... surely now you [Canaan] will be too cramped for the [Israelite] inhabitants, and those who swallowed you will be far away. The children of whom you were bereaved will yet say in your ears. "My place is too cramped for me; make room for me that I may live." (Isaiah 49:19-20)*

Which People Have Become a Vast Multitude?

Jews

Today the Jews keep the most accurate population statistics in the world. Simply contact the Jewish Statistical Bureau in New York City, and on any particular day they can give you a current population figure for world Jewry. The Jews certainly cannot be considered a vast multitude, let alone an innumerable multitude. Never in their history have they numbered more than eighteen million. The 1987-88 Jewish Almanac put the world Jewish population at 14,527,150. The [1990 Britannica Book of the Year numbered the adherents of Judaism worldwide at 17,357,000.]19

Rather than being a multitude of people, Jewish authors remark on the sparsity of their people. In his book Antisemitism: Its History and Causes, Bernard Lazare admitted to the truth of the Jewish minority status:

The Jews, it is true, are a minority....20

Claude Goldsmid Montefiore made the same admission before the New York Free Synagogue in 1910:

The Jews are a small minority living among a big majority.21

Jewish author Harry Waton, in his book A Program for the Jews and an Answer to All Anti-Semites, admitted that the Jews had never been a multitudinous people and that even by 1939 they still had not increased beyond being a minority:

... numerically the Jews were always a small people .... 22

... the Jews are [still] small in number, scattered over the earth, everywhere they are a small and helpless minority.23

The October 2, 1942, Chicago Jewish Sentinel confirmed that the Jews were not a people of great numbers:

The nations must vanish and religions must be suppressed, only Israel [the Jews] must not disappear ... this [is a] small nation....

Dr. Benjamin H. Freedman revealed how much of a minority modern Jewry actually was in 1948 at the inception of the Israeli State:

But America and American Christianity stand at a crossroad. The majority must decide whether it will longer submit to being the tool of a small but ruthless and unscrupulous minority [Zionist Jewry] of a minority people.24

Jewish author, Uriah Zevi Engelman, commented on the Jews’ rate of population increase during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This information appeared in the voluminous work The Jews: Their History, Culture, and Religion, written in 1949:

When the Jewish population increase is compared with another that might be analogous, namely, that of the English-speaking peoples - who, like the Jews, are distributed over several continents - one finds that the Jewish rate of natural increase in the nineteenth century was quite slow. A United States Census report is revealing on this point. 25

In all countries, the Jewish birth rates were much lower than those of the general population.26

As a highly urbanized [Jewish] minority living most of the time under severe social pressures, it developed a higher sensitivity to social change than did other urban groups. This higher sensitivity was revealed in its continued lead in the twentieth century of a decline in its birth rates; in its being first to mark a sharp rise in death rates in a number of countries; in its rate of natural increase and in the size of the families, which were shrinking faster than those of the general population.27

Israel Cohen in his book Jewish Life in Modern Times, also commented on the diminishing birth rate among Jews:

The total number of Jews in the world at the present day [1914] amounts approximately to 13,500,000. This is the highest figure that they have ever reached in their history, and yet it forms only about a hundred and twentieth of the entire population of the globe. 28

Modern Jewry has ... a remarkably diminishing birthrate, which is lower than the birth-rate of the general population in all countries of [Celto-Saxon] Europe. ... in Prussia, Bavaria, and Hesse together the average Jewish birth-rate sank from 3 1.6 per 1000 in 1876-80 to 17.6 in 1901-10, and in Prussia alone, in 1911 it was as low as 15.4. This contrasts very unfavourably not only with the Christian birth-rate in Prussia, 29.7 per 1000, and with the general birth-rate for Germany, 28.7, but also with that of France in 1911199, which is commonly regarded as the lowest birth-rate in Europe.29

... the Jews form a diminishing proportion of the general population in many European countries.... The declining rate of increase of the Jews is in itself an ominous sign for the future; whilst the diminishing proportion which they form of the general population in so many countries is a further disquieting factor .... 30

In his book The Other Side of the Coin , Dr. Lilienthal also identified the Jews as a minority:

Today [1965] there are some 5.5 million Jews in the United States, less than 3 per cent of the population, and among these only about 1.25 million belong to the various Zionist organizations. Hence only a minority of a minority .... 31

In the January 30, 1976, International Jewish News, Nat Rosenberg, a Jew affiliated with the Denver Allied Jewish Federation, also confirmed the minority status of the Jews:

Proportionately, we have more power that other comparable group, far beyond our numbers. The reason is that we [the Jews] are probably the most organized minority in the world.

Aaron Zelman, as late as 1989, admitted that the Jews were very small in number:

... Jews like me, are a minority within a minority. 32

If the Jews are only a “small nation” and a “minority in the world,” they certainly do not fit the prophecies which declare that Israel was to be a great multitude, and therefore, they cannot be God’s chosen people. Astonishingly, Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits summed up perfectly the Jews’ incapability of fulfilling this identifying mark of Israel in his book Between Yesterday and Tomorrow:

... our [Jewish] numbers are not like the sand of the sea.33

Celto-Saxon

In a Thanksgiving sermon in 1774, Pastor William Gordon noted that by God’s providence the Celto-Saxons were already greatly multiplying in America:

God hath not only appeared for this people [Celto-Saxon Americans], but hath greatly multiplied and exalted them. They were at first a few men in number, yea, very few, and strangers in the land [of uncivilized America]. They came from a well-cultivated kingdom to a savage people and a wild country, enough to discourage the stoutest. However, they ventured to take up their abode in it, and, through the original blessing of Heaven upon them ... they are become a considerable nation ....34

Sixty-nine years later, Daniel Webster found himself astonished at the extraordinary population explosion of the Celto-Saxon peoples who then inhabited America:

I do not reckon myself among quite the oldest of the land, and yet it so happens that very recently I recurred to an exulting speech ... of my own, in which I spoke of my country [Celto-Saxon America] as consisting of nine millions of people. I could hardly persuade myself that within the short time which had elapsed since that epoch our population had doubled; and that at the present moment there does exist most unquestionable as great a probability of its continued progress, in the same ratio, as has ever existed in any previous time. I do not know whose imagination is fertile enough, I do not know whose conjectures, I may almost say, are wild enough to tell what may be the progress of wealth and population in the United States in half a century to come. All we know is, here is a [Celto-Saxon] people of from seventeen to twenty millions, intelligent, educated, freeholders, freemen, republicans, possessed of all the means of modem improvement, modern science, arts, literature, with the world before them! There is nothing [but God] to check them till they touch the shores of the Pacific, and then, they are so much accustomed to water, that that's a facility, and no obstruction!35

Listen to the prophetic words of Pastor Josiah Strong from his book Our Country, in which he discloses the remarkable population growth of our Anglo-Saxon ancestors in this country:

In 1700 this race numbered less than 6,000,000 souls. In 1800, Anglo-Saxons (I use the term somewhat broadly to include all English-speaking peoples) had increased to about 20,500,000, and in 1880 they numbered nearly 100,000,000, having multiplied almost five-fold in eighty years. At the end of the reign of Charles II [1685], the English colonists in America numbered 200,000. During these two hundred years, our population has increased two hundred and fifty-fold [actually five hundred]. ...the expansion of this race has been no less remarkable than its multiplication.36

In 1880, the United States was the home of more than one-half of the Anglo-Saxon race; and if the computations already given, are correct, a much larger proportion will be here a hundred years hence.37

Israel was not only to become a vast multitude, but they were to become an innumerable multitude of people. Genesis 15:5 tells us that it would be impossible to count them. Today it is estimated that there are approximately 1.5 billion Celto-Saxon people, with somewhere between 265 million to 275 million in America alone. It has become impossible to number them precisely.

Israel to Become a Multitude of Nations

...My covenant is with you, and you [Abram] shall be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I [YHWH] will make you [Abraham] the father of a multitude of nations. And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come forth from you. (Genesis 17:4-6)

...God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name. And I will bless her, and indeed I will give you [Abraham] a son [Isaac] by her [Sarah]. Then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall come from her.” (Genesis 17:15-16)

...I [YHWH] will bless you [Isaac], and multiply your descendants, for the sake of [My promise to] My servant Abraham [your father]. (Genesis 26:24)

... God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; you shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.” Thus He called him Israel. God also said to him [Jacob/Israel], “I am God Almighty; be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall come from you, and kings shall come forth from you.” (Genesis 35:10-11)

... his [Joseph’s] father [Jacob/Israel] refused and said, “I know, my son, I know; he [Manasseh, Joseph's first-born son] also shall become a people and he also shall be great. However, his younger brother [Ephraim, Joseph’s second-born son] shall be greater than he [Manasseh], and his [Ephraim’s] descendants shall become a multitude of nations.” (Genesis 48:19)

Which People Came From the Lineage of Isaac?

Arabs

The Arab people have become a multitude of nations in fulfillment of similar promises - Genesis 16:10; 17:20. However, the Arabs are descendants of Ishmael (Abraham’s son by Hagar) rather than descendants of Isaac (Abraham’s son by Sarah). The Funk & Wagnalls New Encyclopedia, under the heading “Ishmael,” states:

Ishmael: In the Old Testament, the elder son of the Hebrew patriarch Abraham ... and the reputed ancestor of a group of Arabian tribes.... The region occupied by these Ishmaelites included most of central and northern Arabia. Muslims regard themselves as the descendants of Ishmael.39

Under the heading “Ishmaelite,” The Zondervan Pictorial Bible Dictionary confirms this definition:

ISHMAELITE ... a descendant of Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Hagar, whom Abraham sent away into the desert.... The 12 sons of Ishmael, and his Egyptian wife, became princes and progenitors of as many tribes.... All Arabs, following Mohammed's example, claim descent from Ishmael. 39

It is true that the Ishmaelites or Arabs formed a multitude of nations; however, the descendants of Ishmael are not the intended recipients of the promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel.

Jews

What of the Jews? Certainly, one must become a multitude of people before one can be a multitude of nations. The Jews are neither. It has also previously been demonstrated that the modern-day Ashkenazi/Khazar Jews do not trace their lineage back through Isaac to Noah’s son, Shem. Instead, the Khazars trace their ancestry back to the lineage of Noah’s son, Japheth. Japheth’s descendants were not the designated recipients of God’s multiple nation promise either.

Consider this: God promised that Abraham’s Israelite descendants would become many nations; the promise was not that many non-Israelite nations would become Abraham's descendants. Modern-day Jews are made up of Negroes, Chinese and many other nationalities who have converted to Judaism. Bernard Lazare testified to the heterogeneous racial stock among the Jews:

... this Jewish race represented by [both] Jews and antisemites [alike] as the most unassailable, most homogeneous [same ancestral type] of races, is [instead] strongly multifarious [greatly diversified]. Anthropologists would in the first place divide it into two well-defined parts: the dolichocephals and the brachycephals. To the first type belong the Sephardic Jews - the Spanish and Portuguese Jews as well as the greater part of the Jews of Italy and Southern France; to the second may be assigned the Ashkenazim. [Jews], i.e., the Polish, Russian and German Jews. But the Sephardim and the Ashkenazim are not the only two known varieties of Jews; these varieties are numerous.

In Africa are found agricultural and nomadic Jews, allied with the Kabyls and Berberians, near Setif, Guelma and Biskra, at the frontier of Morocco; in caravan they go as far as Timbuctoo, and some of their tribes, on the borders of Sahara, like the Daggatouns, are black [Jewish] tribes, as also are the Fellah Jews of Abyssinia. In India, one finds white Jews in Bombay, and black Jews in Cochin China, but the white Jews have in them melanian [black] blood....

The Jew, consequently ... has not remained such as a united and homogeneous people ought to be, but, on the contrary, he is, at present, the most heterogeneous [racially mixed] of all nations, one that presents the greatest varieties. And this pretended race whose stability and power of resistance friend and foe agree in extolling, affords us the most multifarious and most opposite types, since they range from the white to the black Jew, passing by way of the yellow Jew, not to speak of the secondary divisions – Jews with blonde and red hair, and brown Jews with black hair.40

Consequently, Jews are not one race comprising many nations, but rather they are many races with the same religion. Modern-day Judeo-Christianity, which erroneously teaches a "spiritual Israel" under the New Covenant, should keep this fact in mind. Abraham's physical Israelite descendants were to become a multitude of nations. The promise was not that multitudes from all the different nations or races were to become Abraham's descendants upon their conversion to Christianity.

Celto-Saxons

On the other hand, the Celto-Saxon nations are comprised of Scandinavian, Germanic, Scottish, Irish and English tribes along with unnamed divisions and subdivisions of the same race.

When Jacob/Israel blessed Joseph's son, Ephraim, he prophesied that "his descendants shall become a multitude of nations." By what other name is Great Britain known? The British Commonwealth of Nations. It was the progeny of these same Celto-Saxon people who later migrated to America. When originally settled by millions of Caucasians, America was represented by kinsmen from nearly all, if not all, of the Celtic and Anglo-Saxon nations and peoples.

Israel to Rule Over Other Nations

... YHWH your God shall bless you as He has promised you, and you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow; and you [Israel, while serving YHWH and keeping His Law] will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you. (Deuteronomy 15:6)

... YHWH shall make you [Israel] the head and not the tail, and you only shall be above, and you shall not be underneath, if you will listen to the commandments of YHWH your God, which I [Moses] charge you today, to observe them carefully.... (Deuteronomy 28:13)

Which People Rule Over Other Nations?

Jews

At no time in history can we find where the Jews, as a nation, have ruled over any other nations. The Jews cannot even keep the Arabs in Palestine under control. This is due, in part, to the Arabs' awareness that the Jews are imposters and counterfeits who have no moral, historical, or legal claim to the land they unlawfully seized in 1948, when they formed and declared their illegitimate statehood.

Celto-Saxons

In his book The Natural History of the Human Species, American historian, Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hamilton Smith documented Celto-Saxon rule:

The [Celto-Saxon] Caucasian type alone continues in rapid development ... to bear rule in every region, if not by physical superiority, at least by that dominion which [the Christian] religion, science, and enterprise confer.41

English historian Arnold Joseph Toynbee also admitted to the controlling influence of the Celto-Saxons in Volume I of his book A Study of History:

First, the White [Celto-Saxon] people have established an ascendancy over the people of other races with whom they have come to share their new homes.42

Daniel Webster saw it as a duty of the Celto-Saxon peoples of America and England to establish moral and civic ascendancy:

... it is our duty, while we live on the earth, to cherish this sentiment; to make it prevail over the whole country, even if that country should spread over the whole continent. It is our duty to carry English principles, I mean, Sir, (turning to Sir Henry Bulwer) Anglo-Saxon American [moral] principles, over the whole continent; the great principles of Magna Charta, of the English Revolution, and especially of the American Revolution, and of the English language.43

Listen once again to the testimony of Pastor Josiah Strong concerning the natural tendency of the Anglo-Saxon peoples to rule:

This mighty Anglo-Saxon race, though comprising only one-fifteenth part of mankind, now [1885] rules more than one-third of the earth's surface, and more than one-fourth of its people. And if this race, while growing from 6,000,000 to 100,000,000, thus gained possession of a third portion of the earth, is it to be supposed that when it numbers 1,000,000,000, it will lose the disposition, or lack the power to extend its sway?44

Pastor Strong then goes on to be specific about America:

There can be no reasonable doubt that North America is to be the great home of the Anglo-Saxon, the principle seat of his power, the center of his life and influence. Not only does it [North America] constitute seven-elevenths of his possessions, but his empire is unsevered, while the remaining four-elevenths are fragmentary and scattered over the earth ... America is to have the great preponderance of numbers and of wealth, and by the logic of events will follow the sceptre of controlling influence. This will be but the consummation of a movement as old as civilization - a result to which men have looked forward for centuries.45

If America is the primary regathering place of dispersed Israel, then Pastor Strong's remarks concerning America would be the providential fulfillment of God's Word.

Israel to Be Feared By All Nations

This day I [YHWH] will begin to put the dread and fear of you [Israel] upon the peoples [non-Israelite nations and races] everywhere under the heavens, who, when they hear the report of you, shall tremble and be in anguish because of you. (Deuteronomy 2:25)

... if you will diligently obey YHWH your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I [Moses] command you today, YHWH your God will set you [Israel] high above all the nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey YHWH your God.... So all the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of YHWH; and they shall be afraid of you. (Deuteronomy 28: 1-10) Blessed are you, O Israel; who is like you, a people saved by YHWH, who is the shield of your help, and the sword of your majesty! So your enemies shall cringe before you, and you shall tread upon their high places. (Deuteronomy 33:29)

... I [YHWH] will cleanse them [Israel] from all their iniquity by which they have sinned against Me, and I will pardon all their iniquities by which they have sinned against Me, and by which they have transgressed against Me. And it [Israel] shall be to Me a name of joy, praise and glory before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear of all the good that I do for them, and they shall fear and tremble because of all the good and all the peace that I make for it [the nation of Israel]. (Jeremiah 33:8-9)

Which Nation Do Other Nations Fear Today?

Jews

While the State of Israel may have hoodwinked and victimized many nations into paying them reparations and supporting them with foreign aid because they are supposedly "the chosen people of God," these imposters and con artists pose no real world threat, and the name "Jew" does not strike fear in the hearts and minds of any nation on this earth.

Celto-Saxons

In contemplating which nation other nations fear today and in reviewing the many Scriptural characteristics considered in this chapter, only two or three nations have the population, size and power to qualify: the United States of America, Russia, and China. Since the national characteristics outlined in Scripture do not fit Russia or China, and since none of these characteristics have ever fit the Jews, there remains only the United States (and her sister nations), which began as and primarily remains a Celto-Saxon nation, a nation to be dreaded, feared, and reckoned with. If we Celto-Saxon Americans, as the people of God, follow God's Laws, America will remain a fearsome nation, and all the other nations of the earth will continue to cringe and tremble at the mention of our name because of what God has done for us.
