Deception on Identifying Israel Part Eight: Israel in the Modern Era

Complete series available in book format:  Will the Real Israel Please Stand Up?

1 John 5:19“We know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in the evil one.”

If the whole world is in the hands of the Evil One, then it should be no surprise to anyone that the majority of the Earth’s population is deceived in regard to the message in this series, “Identifying Israel.” Those who are of God are the only exception to this rule for they are in His hands. They may be ignorant of history, as I certainly was, but they want to know the truth regardless of how unpopular it is, for the truth will set us free. Nowhere does the Bible teach us, as the popular song says, “He’s got the whole world in His hands….” For only Israel is “the apple of His eye (Zechariah 2:8).

What if you discovered that everything (well, almost everything) you’ve learned all your life was wrong?

Some reading the message in these articles may feel like Neo in the movie “The Matrix.” You know something is wrong in the world, but you can’t figure it out. You are taught that your country is free, but realize it is not. You are taught that your political leaders represent you and have your interests at heart, only to discover they do neither. You realize even the church is not what it is alleged to be, regardless of what denomination it is. You are taught that everyone is equal and are brothers, but you sometimes wonder. So you wake up one day to discover that all you are taught is a lie. It is certainly frustrating and would make you angry enough to tell all your friends and relatives. In this process you find that many friends agree with you about the government, but they may be a little slower about the church, and even slower about all men being brothers. It is here, on this men not being brothers. It is here, on this issue, that it is the hardest to take a stand. But you must, even if it means alienation from your closest friends. Why? Because this issue is the foundational lie for all the other lies that follow.

"All men are created equal” does not come from the Bible. God has created a natural racial division between us, like it or not. For those who are now thinking “hate” just erase that thought from your mind. That only proves you are brainwashed. That too should make you angry against those who have conditioned your mind. Break free from it and accept the fact that the Bible, our history, is a racial book. On this issue rests all the other issues in politics and religion; from who you elect to public office to who you marry. It is this common thread which runs through all our educational institutions to brainwash and prepare us for world governance. To have a one-world government and one-world religion there must be acceptance of the equality and oneness of all races. This unbiblical doctrine pervades our world and is the central theme of Free Masonry and its root, Judaism. The one-world, one-race, and one-religion lie is the root of all other lies that are destroying America.

We have now come to the point of identifying the descendants of Israel in today’s world. One thing which helps in locating these nations (groups of people) is race. All Israelites are descended from Shem so we need look only to Caucasian, Anglo-Saxon, or “White” nations.

The Tribes of Joseph, Ephraim and Manesseh

The adoption of Joseph’s two sons, Ephraim and Manassas, by their grandfather Jacob/Israel resulted in a total of 13 tribes. They jointly received the birthright blessings which include:

  1. Great nationhood, God’s blessing of their friends and cursing of their enemies, and the ability to bless other nations. (Gen. 12:2-3)
  2. Great population growth. (Gen. 13:16, 22:17)
  3. The promise of growth into many nations. (Gen. 17:4-7, 35:11)

In Genesis 27:28-29 we see these birthright promises passed from Isaac to Jacob/Israel:

“God give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of corn and wine: Let people serve thee, and nations bow down to thee…cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee.”

Here is a promise of great agricultural blessings to these tribes and prominence over other nations. In Genesis 28:14 God promised that Abraham’s seed would spread throughout the Earth in all directions. This makes total sense because such a large population would need to be fed. Genesis 35:11 emphasizes regarding a large population that “a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee.” Certainly these prophetic traits have never been fulfilled by the political nation called “Israel” today.

In Genesis 48:14 &16, we see Jacob/Israel blessing his two grandsons:

And Israel, stretching out his right hand, put it on the head of Ephraim, the younger, and his left hand on the head of Manasseh, crossing his hands on purpose, for Manasseh was the older. …and let my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, be given to them; and let them become a great nation in the earth.

With these words the birthright promises of the Abrahamic covenant were given to Ephraim and Manasseh. They were destined to become the most populous nations on the Earth and of course would need the largest amount of land to feed them. It is also important to note that this prophetic blessing included the names “Israel” and “Isaac” upon them (and following them) in the future. From this point forward when the Bible uses the word “Israel” it is primarily referring to Ephraim and Manasseh (not a geo/political nation). After these tribes went into captivity the name “Isaac” was placed on them in the forms of “Sacae,” “Saka” or “Saxones” in Scythia and Parthia.

In Genesis 48:19 Jacob prophesied that Manasseh “shall become a people and he also shall be great.” But added that Ephraim’s descendants “shall be greater than [Manasseh], and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.” Both sons would obtain the blessing of Genesis 35:11 (“a nation and many nations”); but the younger son (Ephraim) would become the “many nations” while the older son (Manasseh) would become the single great nation.

The modern nations which descended from an Anglo-Saxon heritage are England, the United States of America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. These have perfectly fulfilled all the prophecies about the birthright tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. The single great nation descended from Manasseh is the United States. The many nations descended from Ephraim are those of the British Commonwealth (Great Britain, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand).


Reuben, the eldest son of Jacob, would have inherited the birthright promise, but did not because he had sex with Bilhah, his father’s concubine. Genesis 49:3-4,

Reuben, you are my oldest son, the first-fruit of my strength, first in pride and first in power: But because you were uncontrolled, the first place will not be yours; for you went up to your father's bed, even his bride-bed, and made it unclean.

One trait of Reuben was that he lacked discipline; and in this example it was of a sexual nature. Another example is seen in Genesis 37:12-35 where he intervened to prevent his brothers from selling Joseph into slavery. While this was good he lacked the “follow through” discipline to back it up and just wandered away from the situation. Reuben easily “followed the crowd.”

We have no specific information about Reuben after the ten tribes left Palestine, but he obviously became one of the Sacae tribes of Asia. He must have been among the waves of Caucasian people who migrated into Europe. It is logical that Reubenites would be France today because of the second position of pride and power. France wanted to co-exist with the Nazi regime rather than oppose it with their British brothers. France is well-known for its physical appetites in food, fashion, and sex.


The Bible does not give us much information about Zebulon; but here is a clue from Deuteronomy 33:19,

They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand.

What could “sucking from the sea” and “treasures hid in the sand” possibly be? The Dutch have increased their land area with dikes and “sucking out” the sea with windmills. “Treasure in the sand” is petroleum. Holland is home of the Royal Dutch/Shell Oil Company and also the largest seaport in Europe. Perhaps this could be translated as one prophecy, i.e., “sucking oil out of the sand in the sea.”


The prophecy about Asher in Genesis 49:20,

Out of Asher his bread shall be fat, he shall yield royal dainties.

“Shall be fat” could mean prosperity, but many nations of Israel are prosperous. But the clue of “royal dainties” could mean a nation that produces gold and gems. Throughout history it was a custom to give gifts to kings. Perhaps this is South Africa which was founded by a mixture of British and Dutch people (the Boers). Ancient history records the presence of Asherites in the British Isles.


The Bible offers a significant clue regarding the location of the tribe of Issachar in Genesis 49:14-15,

“Issachar is a strong ass couching down between two burdens:

And he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute.”

Collins, from his book The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel Found (p.407) gives some history on Finland:

The nation of Finland has long been in the condition of being a buffer zone between stronger, competing nations. The 1700’s and 1800’s saw Finland caught between Russia and Sweden, who fought for sovereignty over Finland. This century has seen Finland’s sovereignty regularly compromised. From 1899 to 1905,   Russia   dominated Finland, and language were foisted on Finland wherever possible, and in 1903 the Russian governor...was invested with dictatorial powers.” (Britannica, p. 253). The Finns were literally “under tribute” when “the Tsar peremptorily fixed an annual contribution” (Ibid) on Finland.

In World War I “Finland escaped invasion, but her liberties were restricted,” (Ibid) befitting a nation under tribute. World War I also saw Finns volunteering for service in the armies of both Germany and Russia (their “two burdens”). Representative government was restored in 1917, but in 1918, Finland “concluded a treaty which made her Germany’s ally and vassal.”(Ibid, p. 254) Finland was now paying “tribute” to its other “burden.” Between the world wars, Finland became increasingly identified as a Scandinavian nation, but the ever-hungry Russian bear again launched an attack on Finland as World War II began. The Finns made a heroic resistance against the Soviets but had to sign a treaty ceding territory and dominance to Russia. When Germany attacked Russia in 1941, Finland briefly allied itself with Germany before signing an armistice with both Great Britain and Russia in 1944. At the end of World War II Finland has to pay certain amounts of finished industrial goods (more “tribute”) to the Russians.

Finland fulfills the prophecy about Issachar’s descendants in the modern world.


This tribe is much easier to trace in the ancient world because it left Palestine as one complete tribe at one time, rather than in piecemeal clans. It also retained its Israelite name as late as the 6th century A.D. The Britannica (p. 646) records the “Ephthalites” or “Nephthalites” as the “White Huns” and that before their arrival in the old Parthian Empire, the Ephthalites “were originally a tribe of the great Yue-Chi [also known as Sacae], living to the north of the Great Wall.” (Ibid) When Parthia fell they did not join the migration westward toward Europe but stayed and fought many battles against the Sassanian Persians and even ruled a portion of West India for a time.

Their capital, Sakala, bore the name of Isaac, their forefather. They were defeated in the 6th century and disappeared from Asia. The Encyclopedia Britannica comments that the defeat of the Ephthalites “completed the ruin of the White Race of the plains from the Oxus to the Don.” (Vol. 13, p. 362) The only clue the Bible gives about the Nephthalites in the modern era is in Genesis 49:21,

Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.

A hind is a female deer and the words “let loose” imply a condition of liberation or “active in the wild.” The female deer are most active during the mating season while “in heat.” This implies that the Naphthalites (particularly the females) will be identified with sensuality in the latter days.

Sweden has been known as being a sexually open (“liberated”) society. Blond Swedish women have a reputation for beauty and have been prominent in the film industry, resulting in the image that “blondes have more fun.”

“Giveth goodly words” can mean “beautiful speeches” or “pleasing announcements.” Sweden sponsors the Nobel prizes; beautiful speeches or pronouncements given to noteworthy achievers in a variety of fields.


The tribe of Benjamin was almost exterminated in a civil war with all the other tribes of Israel (See Judges 19-21). From this point onward their population lagged far behind the others. When the kingdom was divided Benjamin remained in the kingdom of Judah (I Kings 12:21). Some of them returned to Jerusalem under the Persian kings but most remained in Asia and eventually were a part of the Israelite migration into Europe. Our clue from Genesis 49:27,

Benjamin shall raven as a wolf: in the morning he shall devour the prey, and at night he shall divide the spoil. 

Perhaps the wolf is indicative of a northern climate. The only modern nation not yet chosen from a northern area is Norway. Since Iceland was populated by Viking Norsemen it is likely that they too are from Benjamin. Norway’s Viking ancestors were known for their preying (wolf-like) on the other nations of Europe, which was similar to their ancient civil war in Biblical times.


Dan’s inheritance included the seaport, Joppa, Joshua 19:47 tells us the Danites took the city of Leshem and renamed it after their father Dan. This was a trait of the Danites throughout their migrations, to name geographical places after their father. Secular historical sources confirm that a seafaring tribe by the name of “Dan” was present in eastern Mediterranean. Egyptian sources named them the “Danauna” while the Greeks called them “Danaans.”

When many Israelites fled from Assyrian captivity around 722 B.C., history records that the Tuatha De Danaan arrived in Ireland. It is likely that many Irish are descended from Dan. However the landlocked portion of Danites, in the northern part of Palestine, migrated northward into the Black Sea region. The name of “Dan” was placed in that region soon after the Israelites arrived. Rivers emptying into the Black Sea used to be named Ister, Tyras, Borysthenes, and Tanais. After the Scythians (Israelite “Sacae”) arrived, the Black Sea rivers were renamed the Danube, Dnestr, Dnepr, and the Don. In Europe the name of Dan appears in Danzig (in Poland), and Danmark (Danish for Denmark). It is likely then, that the Danes are descended from the Danites of northern Palestine.

The latter day prophecy for Dan, Genesis 49:16-17,

Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel. Dan shall be a serpent in the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse's heels, So that his rider falleth backward.

Collins in his book, “The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel Found” (p. 413) gives us a possible explanation for this cryptic passage:

The Hebrew word translated “judge” can also be translated “discern.” The text also likens Dan to a serpent. …the telltale path of a snake in the desert can be seen even after the snake is no longer present. …one can “discern” or “judge” where the tribes of Israel migrated by following the names of the tribe of Dan throughout history, left on a map like the telltale path of a sidewinder snake in the desert. This conclusion reflects the reality of what has happened in history, and is supported by the fact that the rest of the prophecy continues a “serpent” analogy in describing the Danites. …The Danites are pictured as being under the heels of a horse, but they succeed in “throwing off the rider” by “biting the heels” of his horse. The Irish were governed (“under the heels of”) by the British (the “rider”) until the early 1920’s. The Irish won their independence via a terrorist campaign against British representatives (“nipping at the heels”) of the British government. …This same activity has continued into modern times as the Irish Republican Army has utilized the same terrorist activities against the British in an effort to overthrow British rule in Northern Ireland as well.

There is much evidence that members of the tribe of Dan are in Ireland and Denmark.
