Lost Israel Located
Without further suspense,
let us see where prophecy locates these birthright holders,
now possessing the throne of David and earth's richest national blessings.
they are distinguished from Judah, the Jews by various names,
"Ephraim," "Joseph," "Jacob," "Rachel" (the mother of Joseph), Samaria (the former capital).
According to Hosea 12:1,
Ephraim must have gone west from Assyria.
When the Eternal swore to David to perpetuate his throne,
He said: "I will set his hand [sceptre] in the sea" (Psalms 89:25).
The throne is to be "set," planted, "in the sea."
Through Jeremiah the Eternal said: "Backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.
Go and proclaim these words toward the north and say,
Return thou backsliding Israel, saith the Lord" (Jeremiah 3:11-12).
is clearly distinguished from Judah.
And in these last days messengers are to go "toward the north" (of Jerusalem)
in order to locate lost Israel and proclaim this warning.
So the location, we now find, is toward the north, also west, and in the sea.
The 18th verse, same chapter, says:
"In those days the House of Judah shall walk with the House of Israel
[margin, to the House of Israel], and they shall come together out of the land of the north
to the land that I have given for an inheritance unto your fathers."
At the future Exodus, at Christ's coming, they are to return to the Holy Land out of the land of the north!
After saying, "How shall I give
thee up, Ephraim?"
the Eternal, speaking through Hosea, says: "...
then the children shall tremble from the west" (Hosea 11:8, 10).
Again, "Behold, I will bring them from the North Country,
and gather them from the coasts of the earth" (Jeremiah 31:8).
This prophecy is for consideration
in the "latter days" (Jeremiah 30:24; 31:1),
and is addressed to "Israel" (verses 2, 4, 9,) to "Ephraim" (verses 6, 9,) and "Samaria" (verse 5).
Here is added another hint
"the coasts of the earth",
evidently they are dominant at sea.
Referring to the House of Israel
(not Judah) in Isaiah 49:3, 6, God
"Behold these shall come from far:
and lo, these from the north and from the west; and these from the land of Sinim" (Isaiah 49:12).
In the Hebrew, the language in
which this was originally inspired, there is no word for "northwest," but
the phrase, "the north and the west" designate this term. It
means, literally, the northwest!
The Vulgate renders "Sinim" as Australi" meaning the south.
So we now have the location northwest of Jerusalem, as well as southern lands.
Hence, Israel of today, Israel of the day of Jeremiah's "planting" of David's throne, is located specifically northwest of Jerusalem, and in the sea!
Let us locate this land more specifically!
In Jeremiah 31:7, the message
to be declared "In the isles afar off" (verse 10)
is to be shouted in "the chief of the nations."
So, finally, today, as in Jeremiah's day, the House of Israel is in the isles, which are "in the sea"
the chief of the nations, northwest of Jerusalem!
A Coast-dwelling, and therefore sea dominant people.
there can be no mistaking that identity!
Take a map of Europe.
Lay a line due northwest of Jerusalem across the continent of Europe, until you come to the sea, and then to the islands in the sea!
This line takes you direct to the British Isles!
Of proof that the white English speaking peoples today, Britain and America, are actually and truly the birthright tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh of the "lost" House of Israel.
