Preface

This book is intended as a follow-up to The Mystery of the Gentiles: Who Are They and Where Are They Now?1 and God’s Covenant People: Yesterday, Today and Forever2, which biblically, archaeologically, and historically establish the Celtic, Scandinavian, Germanic, Anglo-Saxon, and kindred peoples (hereafter identified as Celto-Saxons) as today’s genetic Israelites.

If you are not convinced the Celto-Saxons are the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, please consider this one scriptural proof: In Jeremiah 31, Yahweh promised to make the New Covenant with the Israelites:

Behold, the days come, saith YHWH,3 that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt…. But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith YHWH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. (Jeremiah 31:31-33)4

Yahweh is always true to His Word:

God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Numbers 23:19)

YHWH of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand…. For YHWH of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? And his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back? (Isaiah 14:24-27)

So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11)

Just as Yahweh promised, He has made the New Covenant with Israelites. Take a globe and draw circles around the land masses in which true Christianity has flourished for the last two millennia, and your circles will encompass those nations composed primarily of Celto-Saxons.

Over the last two thousand years, it has been predominantly Celto-Saxons who have embraced New Covenant Christianity and who have been most responsive to Yeshua’s5 (Jesus’ given Hebrew name) call to salvation. All other nations would be oblivious to Christianity had it not been for the Celto-Saxons’ proliferation of the gospel message.

Yahweh’s promise to the Israelites in Jeremiah 31 alone proves who Israel is and is not today. Additional biblical, archaeological, and historical evidence can be found in The Mystery of the Gentiles1 and God’s Covenant People.2

What Difference Does It Make?

Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a “Jew” or to call a contemporary Jew an “Israelite” or a “Hebrew.”6

Jewish Almanac

Here’s a paradox, a paradox, a most ingenious paradox: an anthropological fact, many [Caucasian] Christians … have much more Hebrew-Israelite blood in their veins than most of their Jewish neighbors.7

Dr. Alfred M. Lilienthal, Jr.

The assertions of The Jewish Almanac and Dr. Lilienthal are not only anthropological facts; they are also biblical, archaeological, and historical facts that should be compelling to all who read them. The true identity of today’s Israelites has profound effects upon the entire world, yet it is often brushed aside with the question, “What difference does it make?”

Occasionally this question is asked by people in an honest attempt to discover the importance of the Christian-Israel message. However, it is more often used rhetorically to avoid the ramifications of the truth. “What difference does it make?” is frequently posed by those who recognize, to some degree, the validity of the Christian-Israel message and are unable to dispute it. Their very question presupposes this conclusion. Only people who acknowledge that the Celto-Saxon people, rather than the Jews,8 are Israelites would ask this question. As always, we find two types of believers – those who follow through with what they believe and those who do not.

Most people ask this question to minimize the importance of Israel’s contemporary identity so they can justify their refusal to fully embrace it. If they can convince themselves that properly identifying today’s Israelites makes no difference, then they have no need to act upon that knowledge. People who ask this question insincerely are really asking, “What difference does truth make?”

All truth makes a difference. Yeshua declared, “…ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). All truth frees us in some way, if only from the slavery of fallacy and lies. Granted, not all truth is of equal importance or equal consequence. The truth that zebra stripes are black and not white is not as consequential as the truth of gravity. But this does not mean that the truth concerning black zebra stripes is unimportant. Likewise, the truth about the identity of contemporary Israel is far less consequential than the truth regarding the redeeming qualities of the blood of our Savior. But this does not mean Israel’s identity is unimportant. It matters, if for no other reason, because truth matters.

To Whom Does Israels Identity Matter?

In discussing to whom Israel’s identity matters, it will also become apparent why Israel’s identity matters.

It Matters to Todays Jews

Israel’s identity matters to today’s Jews, or they would not claim to be Israel. Today, the Jews care more about Israel’s birthright than does Israel. The reverse occurred between Jacob and Esau, the progenitors of today’s Israelites and Edomites. It was Esau, father of the Edomites, who despised his birthright:

…Isaac was forty years old when he took Rebekah to wife…. And … Rebekah his wife conceived. And the children struggled together within her; and she said, … why am I thus? …YHWH said unto her, two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels; and the one people shall be stronger than the other people; and the elder shall serve the younger. And when her days to be delivered were fulfilled, behold, there were twins in her womb. And the first came out red … and they called his name Esau. And after that came his brother out … and his name was called Jacob…. And [after he was grown] Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field…. And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me … with that same red pottage; for I am faint…. And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright. And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me? And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles … thus Esau despised his birthright. (Genesis 25:20-33)

Jacob esteemed the birthright; Esau despised it and sold it for a mess of pottage. In other words, he got beans for it. However, the exact opposite has occurred today. Today’s Jews (who are predominately descendants of Esau9) are jealous of the birthright and are attempting to get it back through lies and subterfuge, whereas most of today’s Israelites care little about their heritage. This is particularly true of Christian Israelites who are not even getting beans for the birthright. They are throwing it away with the trite question, “What difference does it make?”

It Matters to Israels Enemies

Israel’s identity matters to her enemies, as demonstrated by their efforts to wipe the name “Israel” from the memory of man by any means possible, even genocide:

Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God. For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head. They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee. (Psalm 83:1-5)

The Edomites, progenitors of today’s Jews, were foremost in this confederate plot to destroy Israel:

The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen [helped] the children of Lot…. (Psalm 83:6-8)

This cunning continues today. Although Edom has been unable to entirely erase the true identity of Israel, they have done the next best thing by applying the name “Israel” to themselves, thus obscuring the recognition, heritage, and rewards due the rightful descendants of Jacob. It is ironic that these imposters use every means conceivable to convince the rest of the world that they are Israel, while admitting in their own almanacs, encyclopedias, and historical writings that they are not Israel.8

In 500 BC while expounding upon warfare tactics, Chinese philosopher and general, Sun Tzu, declared the importance of not only knowing your enemy but also correctly identifying yourself:

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.10

Most Celto-Saxons, secularist and Christian11 alike, find themselves fulfilling the third prediction; they know neither their enemies nor themselves. Yahweh issued a similar observation a century before Sun Tzu:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…. (Hosea 4:6)

In cooking, it is crucial to differentiate between a mushroom and a toadstool. A mistake in identification could be fatal. Misidentifying Celto-Saxons as non-Israelite gentiles and Jews as Israelites has been just as calamitous to Christianity. Among other things, these two errors of identification have blinded the world to the machinations of Talmudism12 and have rendered most Christians nearly impotent “for fear of the Jews” (John 7:13).

One of the more effective ways for an enemy to destroy someone is to convince him he is an ally. Those who identify the Jews as Israel usually consider the Jews to be allies of America and other Christian nations. The Prophet Micah warns us to beware of those who “cry, Peace,” yet who at the same time prepare for war (Micah 3:5). Dr. Benjamin Freedman, a Jew, tried to alert Christians to their enemies:

The history of the world for the past several centuries and current events at home and abroad, confirm the existence of a conspiracy to destroy Christian civilization. The world-wide plot of these diabolical conspirators has been implemented while most Christians have been asleep. The Christian clergy seem to be more ignorant and indifferent to this plot than other Christians. They seem to bury their heads in the sands of indifference and ignorance like the legendary ostrich. This ignorance and indifference has dealt a severe blow to the Christian faith…. The confusion … is unwarranted and unjustified. It need not exist. It would not exist if the Christian clergy did not aid and abet the deceptions responsible for it. The Christian clergy may be shocked to learn that they have been aiding and abetting the dedicated enemies of the Christian faith. Many of the Christian clergy are actually their allies but may not know it.13

As a consequence of misidentifying ourselves and failing to recognize an enemy dedicated to destroying the Christian faith, many Christians have become bedfellows with the Jews. The following testimonies to this diabolical plot to destroy Christianity come from Jews themselves:

…[the Jews] touch the hand of all the scum and low castes of Europe! And all this because they wish to destroy that ungrateful Christendom….14

Every hundred years, We, the sages of Israel [Judaism] … meet in Sanhedrin [an assembly of Jewish leaders] in order to examine our progress towards the domination of the world … and our conquests over the enemy – Christianity.15

…only years divide us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that Christian religion….16

…they are the enemies of God and Jesus Christ … in their daily prayers they curse the Savior under the name of the Nazarene; they build new synagogues as if to insult the Christian religion…. In brief, “there is no wickedness in the world which the Jews are not guilty of, so that they seem to aim at nothing but the Christians’ ruin.17

The Jews did not stop there…. Their activity was such as to give rise to … the existence of a secret society sworn to the destruction of Christianity.18

…attacking all dogmas and forms of Christianity with a bitterness entirely Judaic….19

The Jew … is not content merely to destroy Christianity, but he preaches the gospel of Judaism [Talmudism]…. He is engaged in his historic mission, the annihilation of the religion of Christ.20

Judaism is imbued with a very deep hatred towards Christianity…. The very name “Jesus” was for Jews a symbol of all that is abominable, and this popular tradition still persists.21

The leaders of the Celto-Saxon nations and their media have bought into the lie that today’s Jews are God’s chosen people. These leaders and their media slander and malign anyone who points out that a case of mistaken identity has occurred. Nothing has changed since King David wrote Psalm 83: “[Thine enemies] have taken crafty counsel against thy people … that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.”

No matter how much Israel’s enemies want to destroy her with their lies, the truth of Israel’s identity will someday expose her enemies as imposters and liars:

Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. (Matthew 10:26)

Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. (Revelation 3:9)

It Matters to True Israel

Israel’s identity matters to true Israel – politically, economically, socially, spiritually, and morally. The impact upon the Celto-Saxon people worldwide would be earthshaking if they were to discover their Israelite roots. This does not mean the sole answer for the problems of these nations is in the discovery of their Israelite heritage. However, a person cannot come to know his Israelite legacy and not be drawn, to some extent, to Yahweh, His kingdom, and His laws. With these, comes Christian dominion. This is the answer for these nations.

It Matters to All Future Generations of Israels Children

Children suffer when their parents squander or give away their legacy, and this is precisely what is happening to Israel’s inheritance today. The Apostle Paul answers, in part, the question, “What inheritance?”

…I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh: Who are Israelites; to whom pertaineth [belongs, NASB] the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God, and the promises; whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came…. (Romans 9:3-5)

Peter Marshall, co-author of The Light and The Glory, pointed out that America’s moral and spiritual condition is the consequence of not knowing who we are22:

…the basic problem across our land today is we Americans don’t know who we are or why we’re here…. We’ve lost our sense of purpose and destiny…. It’s very simple: if we don’t know who we’re supposed to be, we don’t know how to fix things. It’s just that basic…. We need God’s solution now. And step one of that is to recover the truth about our heritage.23

American poet Carl Sandburg put it similarly:

…when a nation goes down … when a society or a civilization perishes, one condition may always be found. They forgot where they came from.24

Karl Marx understood this all too well:

Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily persuaded [and conquered].25

Could this be the reason for Yahweh’s admonition in Isaiah?

Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek YHWH: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah that bare you: for I called him alone, and blessed him, and increased him. (Isaiah 51:1-2)

Yahweh then revealed the rewards that result from seeking Him and looking back to our identity by way of our forefathers:

…YHWH shall comfort Zion: he will comfort all her waste places; and he will make her wilderness like Eden, and her desert like the garden of YHWH; joy and gladness shall be found therein, thanksgiving, and the voice of melody. (Isaiah 51:3)

The nation we are bequeathing to our children is morally decadent and spiritually bankrupt, in part because we have rejected our identity as Israelites and our corporate relationship with our God. If you care about your children’s future, it is important to point them back to their heritage as Israelites and, by extension, to their responsibilities to Yahweh as their God.

It Matters to the Arabs

Israel’s identity certainly matters to the hundreds of thousands of Arabs who have been displaced or murdered because today’s Edomite Jews are misidentified as Israelites. These Zionist Jews, under the pretense of being Israelites, have laid claim to the land of Palestine. However, as pointed out by Dr. Benjamin Freedman, this claim has no genetic, geographic, or historical basis. In a letter written to New York’s National Economic Council’s Newsletter in 1947, Dr. Freedman testified to this theft:

Popular ignorance of the real basis of political Zionism is beyond calculation. Vaguely most Christian Americans have the idea that the Jews claim Palestine because it was the “promised land” in which they lived for a period of a few centuries that ended 2000 years ago. And the thought of a people returning to its “homeland” seems emotionally satisfying and good.

But here are facts most Americans do not know:

Political Zionism is almost exclusively a movement by the Jews of Europe. But these Eastern European Jews have neither a racial nor a historic connection with Palestine. Their ancestors were not inhabitants of the “Promised Land.” They are the direct descendants of the people of the Khazar Kingdom, which existed until the 12th century….

About the 7th century A.D., the King of the Khazars adopted Judaism as the state religion, and the majority of inhabitants joined him in the new allegiance. Before that date there was no such thing as a Khazar who was a Jew [Israelite]. Neither then nor since was there such a thing as a Khazar whose ancestors had come from the Holy Land. The Semitic people who established Judaism in Palestine many centuries before the Khazars became converts to the Hebrew faith,26 did mostly emigrate from Palestine. But none of them [Semitic Judahites] emigrated to the Khazar Kingdom far to the North.

In view of this fact, what becomes of the cry for “repatriation” to the “homeland”? These Eastern European, Yiddish-speaking Jews have no historic or racial connection with Palestine….

…if the claim of Palestinian-descended Jews is so dubious, what of the claim of Khazar-descended Jews? Would a single Christian support their trek back to the “homeland” or want to oblige them by expelling the Arabs, if it were known that these Eastern European, Yiddish-speaking Jews who form the Zionist group practically in toto, have neither a geographic, historic nor ethnic connection with either the Jews [Judahite Israelites] of the Old Testament or the land known today as Palestine?27

Alfred Lilienthal Jr., another prominent Jew, corroborated this abuse of the Arabs by Zionist Jewry:

If the Arabs, who are themselves almost pure Semites [by way of Abraham’s son Ishmael], can be accused of anti-Semitism because of their intense and unrelenting opposition to Zionism and to [the State of] Israel, the shoe of bigotry fits much more appropriately on the Israeli foot. The 180,000 Arabs who remained and did not flee the new state upon its establishment in 1948 and the 700,000 Jewish Arabs who emigrated to Israel from Yemen, Iraq, Egypt and the North African countries have … been the victims of anti-Semitism….28

Dr. Lilienthal quoted another Jew, William Zukerman, who wrote the following in the October 16, 1961, Jewish Newsletter:

[The Arabs have] been subjected to a series of discriminations and persecution [by the Jews] which would shock the civilized world, if they were fully known.29

Dr. Lilienthal continued:

While [the State of] Israel is almost universally regarded as the shining example of “democracy” in the Middle East, Israel’s 1952 Nationality Act codified discrimination into law and made the Arabs second-class citizens…. Under this law, a Jew may become a citizen of Israel after one minute in the land, a status that may be denied to an Arab although his forefathers have been there for a thousand years.30

…Arab refugees who had passed their entire life in Palestine were arrested, if not shot, as infiltrees, while Jewish immigrants who had lived thousands of miles away and might never have seen Palestine were welcomed as pioneering heroes.31

These atrocities have occurred and are usually ignored because today’s Jews have hoodwinked the world into believing they are Israelites. For a Christian to ask, “What difference does Israel’s identity make?” is a slap in the face of every Arab who has lost his home and his loved ones.

It Matters to Americans

Israel’s identity matters to all Americans, Israelites and non-Israelites alike. The United States supports the spurious State of Israel in Palestine to the tune of about $4 billion dollars per year. It has not been lost on the Arab nations that the State of Israel could not exist and could not be stealing their land were it not for the United States’ assistance. The September 11, 2001, attack upon America was connected to the Zionist conquest of Arab lands and the murder of Arab lives, financed by American tax dollars under the guise that today’s Jews are Israelites. In other words, this terrorist incident was, at its core, linked with the question: “Who are today’s true Israelites?” It also reveals just how important the answer to this question should be to each of us.32

Because America has misidentified Israel and consequently backed the Zionist movement, many in the Arab world have become the avowed enemies of America. America has been an accomplice to the theft of Arab land and the murder of Arab people, and, as a result, we may very well see the day when the Arab nations and their allies unite in an all-out war against America. Rather than being blessed by Yahweh in such a conflict, America may very well be cursed.

It Matters to the Rest of the World

Because Abraham’s Israelite descendants are to be a blessing to the rest of the world, Israel’s identity matters to all nations:

YHWH … said unto Abram, … I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 12:1-3)

…in thy [Abraham’s] seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice. (Genesis 22:18)

…thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy [Jacob/Israel’s] seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. (Genesis 28:14)

Yahweh’s blessings upon Israel were so that other races might also be blessed:

The Bible is not a history of the human race at large, but one distinct strain of people [the Israelites] amongst the family of races. All the other races are considered with reference to it…. The Bible deals with one race, which flows like a Gulf Stream through the ocean of humanity. As the actual Gulf Stream touches two continents and blesses the nations, so this race, in its origin, history and destiny, was selected and equipped for the service of the [other] nations.33

…A man will rise and demand, “By what right does God choose one race or people above another?” I like that form of the question. It is much better than asking by what right God degrades one people beneath another…. God’s grading is always upward. If He raises up a nation, it is that other nations may be raised up through its ministry. If He exalts a great man, an apostle of liberty, or science, or faith, it is that He might raise a degraded people to a better condition. The Divine selection is not a prize, a compliment paid to the man or the race – it is a burden imposed. To appoint a chosen people is not a pandering to the racial vanity of a “superior people;” it is a yoke bound upon the necks of those who are chosen for a special service.34

When we are serving Yahweh and observing His laws, we, as Abraham’s Israelite descendants, are to be a blessing to the rest of the world.

Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as YHWH my God commanded me…. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people. For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as YHWH our God is in all things that we call upon him for? And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day? Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently…. (Deuteronomy 4:5-9)

When we refuse to recognize who we are and to Whom we belong, we become a curse to the rest of the world. The rest of the world is not experiencing the full extent of the blessings that are a byproduct of Israel’s relationship with Yahweh. This relationship will never be fully realized on a national basis until we come to understand who we are.

It Matters to Christians

Israel’s identity matters a great deal to Christians – so long as they believe today’s Jews are Israel. Provide these same Christians with the evidence, quoted at the beginning of this book from The Jewish Almanac, which demonstrates the existence of a case of mistaken identity, and suddenly Israel’s identity is no longer important. Whether they are cognizant of it or not, Israel’s true racial identity does matter to Christians, including those who attempt, in vain, to spiritualize Israel under the New Covenant.35

The identification of modern Israel is crucial to all Christians because of the impact Israel’s misidentification has upon what Christians believe and practice. For example, many pastors inform their flocks that unless they bless the Jews, they cannot expect to be blessed themselves. Consequently, billions of dollars in foreign aid, by way of Christian Zionist ministries and government taxes, are sent to support Zionism’s “repatriation” of Palestine. In other words, billions of Christian dollars are used to pillage and murder Palestinian Arabs. Because Christians are being duped into giving aid and comfort to Yahweh’s enemies, they are reaping the condemnation of the Prophet Jehu’s rebuke of King Jehoshaphat:

…Shouldest thou help the ungodly, and love them that hate YHWH? Therefore is wrath upon thee from before YHWH. (2 Chronicles 19:2)

Look at the record. Since the formation of the State of Israel in 1948, America has steadily declined socially, politically, economically, educationally, spiritually, and morally. In other words, instead of being blessed for her handouts to the Israelis, America is being cursed.

As a consequence of misidentifying today’s Jews as Israel, many Christian churches have been aiding and abetting the enemies of Yahweh.

Having been repeatedly told that today’s Jews are God’s chosen people, and fearful of being labeled anti-Semites, many Christians balk at the implication that Jews are wicked and enemies of Yahweh and His people. Nevertheless, this is generally true. It is sinful to pose under a false identity in order to steal an inheritance that belongs to the rightful heir. For this reason and others, Yeshua identified such Jews as a “synagogue of Satan”:

…I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews [Judahite Israelites], and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9)

Many Jews testify to their own wickedness:

…there are … good, solid reasons why the world should dislike us, and I, as a Jew, will utter them. …We are today the most bitterly despised people in the world. Never was a people so simply, so tenaciously, so whole-heartedly loathed…. Why should not the intelligentsia of Europe [and the rest of the world] hate us?36

…one by one the industries of the country close to them because of unfair practices – until, it being impossible to longer hold in check the wrath of a betrayed people, there is violence, and inevitably, an ignominious ejection of the whole race from the land. There is not a single instance when the Jews have not fully deserved the bitter fruit of the fury of their persecutors…. We come to the nations pretending to escape persecution, we the most deadly persecutors in all the wretched annals of man.37

…the general causes of antisemitism have resided in Israel [the Jewish imposters themselves]….38

We Jews have spoiled the blood of the races, we have tarnished and broken their power, we have made everything foul, rotten, decomposed and decayed.39

We who have posed as Saviours of the World … we [Jews] are today nothing else but the world’s seducers, its destroyers, its incendiaries, its executioners…. We who have promised to lead you to a new heaven, we have finally succeeded in landing you into a new hell.40

We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will forever destroy because we need a world of our own….41

The identity of today’s Israelites matters to all Christians, whether they know it or not. If it does not matter now, it will matter when they are standing before the judgment seat of God, faced with the fact that they have assisted the wicked and loved those who hate Yahweh:

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 1:7-11)

Modern Christians have not been blessing Jacob/Israel’s descendants but rather Esau/Edom’s descendants for whom Yahweh has a perpetual hatred:

The burden of the word of YHWH to Israel by Malachi. I have loved you, saith YHWH. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? Saith YHWH: yet I loved Jacob, and I hated Esau…. Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith YHWH of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, the border of wickedness, and, the people against whom YHWH hath indignation for ever. (Malachi 1:1-4)

For Christians who spiritualize Israel under the New Covenant, they too will discover Israel’s identity matters. When they stand before the judgment seat of God, they will discover that they have been doing virtually nothing in support of true Israel whom Yahweh loves42:

He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to YHWH. (Proverbs 17:15)

Israel’s identity matters to all Christians because without correctly identifying Israel, in and out of the Bible, much of Scripture and prophecy cannot be interpreted and applied correctly. Christians are continually told how fulfilled prophecy is dependent upon what the Jews do or do not do. However, the Jews are not Israelites, so prophecies concerning Israel cannot be fulfilled by them. For example, the formation of the State of Israel in 1948 was not in fulfillment of prophecies regarding Israelites (as so many Christian Zionist ministries claim) but in fulfillment of prophecies regarding Edomites.43

It Matters to Truth Seekers

Israel’s identity matters to people to whom truth is paramount. To truth seekers it makes no difference where a truth may lead them or what persecution may accompany it. Truth seekers are rare as testified to by the Prophet Jeremiah:

Run ye to and fro through the streets of Jerusalem, and … seek in the broad places thereof, if ye can find a man, if there be any that executeth judgment, that seeketh the truth…. (Jeremiah 5:1)

The Prophet Hanani made a similar statement:

For the eyes of YHWH move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His…. (2 Chronicles 16:9, NASB)

Regrettably, and often tragically, many Christians are apt to defend an established man-made doctrine rather than embrace a new truth. However, if doctrine must be sacrificed on the altar of truth, so be it. It is better than truth being sacrificed on the altar of some man-made tradition:

Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias [Isaiah] prophesy of you, saying, This people draweth nigh unto me [Yahweh] with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Matthew 15:7-9)

Anyone seeking Yahweh must do so in truth:

YHWH is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)

But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (John 4:23)

Because Yeshua is the truth, the only way to Yahweh is through Yeshua and His blood-atoning sacrifice:

Jesus saith…, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Since Yeshua is the embodiment of all truth, “in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:2-3), all truth should be significant to anyone who seeks Yahweh. In fact, rejection of any truth is, in part, a rejection of Yeshua.

It Matters to Yahweh

Israel is Yahweh’s beloved wife, and it is untenable that His wife’s identity is unimportant to Him. Israel may have forgotten or lost her identity, but Yahweh has not forgotten who she is:

…O Jacob my servant; and Israel, whom I have chosen … thou art my servant: I have formed thee.… O Israel, thou shalt not be forgotten of me. (Isaiah 44:1-21)

…yet will I not forget thee. Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands…. (Isaiah 49:15-16)

It is impossible for Yahweh to forget Israel; otherwise, He could never fulfill His word as found, for example, in Jeremiah 31:

Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith YHWH…. Thus saith YHWH, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night…. If those ordinances depart from before me, saith YHWH, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. …If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith YHWH. (Jeremiah 31:31-37)

Of course Yahweh’s word is always fulfilled, and thus it has been Israelites with whom the New Covenant has been made, just as He promised. Either the Celto-Saxon peoples comprise Israel or Yahweh has not been true to His word, and He has established His New Covenant with someone other than whom He promised. Yahweh was and still is true to His word, and it has been the Celto-Saxon peoples who, in accordance with Jeremiah’s prophecy, have most readily embraced the New Covenant religion of Christianity and have been most responsive to Yeshua’s call of salvation over the last 2100 years.

Israels Identity – It Matters!

Israel’s identity, although not the most important truth, is one of the most important truths in the Scriptures. It matters to the Edomite Jews, to Israel’s enemies, to true Israel, to all future generations of Israel’s children, to the Arabs, to Americans, to the rest of the world, to Christians, to truth seekers, and most importantly to Yahweh. Shouldn’t it also matter to you?

If you want to make a difference in this world, start by sharing the message of the redeeming, blood-atoning sacrifice and resurrection of Yeshua our Lord and Savior with as many Celto-Saxons as possible. But you also need to tell them the reason Yeshua’s sacrifice is so important to them: They are Israelites and He came to redeem them:

Let Israel hope in YHWH: for with YHWH there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities. (Psalm 130:7-8)

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people, and hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David; as he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets…. (Luke 1:68-70)

Every Israelite needs to know who He is and who they are because it matters!

According to translator Victor Marsden, the “Protocols” give the substance of addresses delivered at the First Zionist Congress, held in Basel, Switzerland, in 1897, under its president and the father of modern Jewish Zionism, the late Theodor Herzl (Binyamin Ye’ev). The Protocols reveal the plan of action for Talmudic Zionism’s quest for world domination. Sergiei Alezsandrovich Nilus included the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” as an appendix to his book Velikoe v Malom – The Great in the Little, or The Coming of Anti-Christ and the Rule of Satan on Earth, which was translated from Russian by Marsden and published in Tsarskoe Selo (Pushkin), Russia, by Tip.

Judaism or Talmudism, a corrupt and blasphemous religion brought back from Babylon to Judea, has little to do with the Hebraism of the Old Covenant.
