Sighted Moon News Letter 5843-040 1287
12th day of the Ninth month 5843 After Creation

November 24, 2007

 

Shabbat Shalom Family,

I have asked you and suggested to you many times that you include your family and friends and church people on this list. To stand in the gap and do what you can to forward this message of the Jubilee.

I have also done like wise. I too included my family and friends who do not understand this way of life which I am explaining.

What might happen? Who Knows?

Well, this week I received a call from someone in my personal family and this member who in the past has hated any thing that sounds religious, told me that they are reading those things I have written. They do not understand it all, but they are reading it and finding it interesting. Other members of my family have also been reading the past posts and they too find them extremely informative. Often over their head but they like it.

I never thought this would happen. But I am pleased to see that it is.

Joel 2: 28 “And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. 29 And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.

Acts 2: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.

John 10: 26 But you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep, as I said to you. 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. 28 And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. 29 My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Father’s hand.

Last weeks News Letter showed us how the Ten northern Tribes of Israel were called by other names and became known as such. Once that is known then all you have to do is go to any encyclopedia and look up the name and youll be told they are of the Celtic people who migrated from the East.

Today we shall learn a secret code of the bible to reveal new understandings to us. Then we will learn just two of the Ten Lost Tribes identity today. If you follow the links you will have a wealth of resources to read.

Yebamot 17a

http://www.seekingthetruth.israelinet.org/articles/lost%20tribes%201.htm

Loss of Identity: It had been prophesied that the LOST TEN TRIBES would lose their identity; that they would spiritually be considered non-Israelites and that they would culturally assimilate to the ways of the nations around them.

“Ephraim is smitten” -says Hosea 9:16-17: “…..My God will cast them away, because they did not hearken unto him: and they shall be wanderers among the nations”

In Hosea 7:8 it says “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people….” that is how the KJ translates it. The actual Hebrew is “Ephraim be-Amim Hue Yitbolel…” which literally means “Ephraim will be assimilated amongst the peoples….”.

“backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce”. (Jeremiah 3:8 KJV unless noted) Likewise the Prophet Hosea, referring to the Lost Tribes of the Kingdom of Israel, echoed, for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God” (Hosea 1:9).

According to the Talmud (Yebamot 17a) the LOST TEN TRIBES were legally classified as “Gentiles to all extents and purposes” -Even though they are destined to return, at the present time they have the status of non-Jews and that is how it was prophesied their status would be.

[Editors Note; The Israelites were never Jewish. They are twelve tribes of which the Jews are just one. The Jews are one of the twelve tribes of Israel. It is the same as those from Tennessee. Not everyone who is American is from Tennessee, but all those from Tennessee are Americans. Tennessee is one of the 52 states. Judah is one of the Twelve Tribes.]

From http://www.beittefillah.org/downloads/Acts_15.pdf page 25 by James S Trimm in his book page 177

Notice that Paul has converting Gentiles(goyim) [Note these goyim are actually the lost Ephramite which were to be goyim in the Babylonian Talmud at Yabamot 17A. They were actually lost Israeltes.

Talmud Bavli Yevamot 17a Others read: When I mentioned the matter in the presence of Samuel he said to me ‘They did not move from there until they had declared them (the ten tribes) to be perfect heathens; as it is said in the scriptures, they have dealt treacherously against the lord they have begotten strange children.’

Having learned this, those things that Isaiah says concerning the Gentiles takes on a different light. Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel, some of the other prophets and almost all the book of Acts and Romans, Galatians and much of what Paul wrote concerning the Gentiles is a secret, meaning for the house of Israel which had become as bad or ungodly as the rest of the world.

In last weeks News Letter we learned that one of the names of the tribe was Galatai [Notice that Lysons shows that the name Geltae is the same as Keltae, and this name is related to Galatai, Galli and other cognate names.] When you research your history, who’ll learn that the Galatai migrated into what is now France. France was once called Gaul. This same group lived before this in Galatia which was in Turkey.

When Paul wrote to the Galatians he was writing to some of the Tribes of Israel.

Now having said this consider this quote form Yahshua

Matthew 10:5-7
5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

And again in Matthew 15: 24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

The apostles were not to go to the gentiles but they were to go to the lost sheep of Israel. Yahshua said Himself, He was only sent to the lost sheep of Israel.

Why only Israel? Deuteronomy 14:2 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God, and the LORD hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth.

Yahweh has made a promise. He will not break His word. He has appeared to no other nation. He has made no deals with any other people. Only Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their seed.

Why is the bible not throughout all of Russia, or China? Why only Europe and those countries colonized by them?

It is because Yahweh, promised Abraham, then, He promised Levi that they would be His priest. And Israel would teach the rest of the Nations. Yahweh was going to work through this group of people.

Yahweh has kept His part of the deal and our fathers and ancestors have not kept their part which they agreed to do.

I also want to show you some thing else before we move on. In Acts 2:7 we read of the many nations that are represented here, when Peter speaks.

Acts 2: 1 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord* in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven. 6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. 7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and Arabs–we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” 12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?”

First note they are all Jews and they had come to Jerusalem for one of the three Feast. We are to go up to Jerusalem on Passover, Pentecost and Feast of Tabernacles.

Next take note of the countries from where they came.

Parthia- The Parthians were a subgroup of the nomadic steppe culture known to us as the Scythians. An Israelite Tribe.
http://americanhistory.si.edu/collections/numismatics/parthia/frames/phisfm.htm

Parthia was the arch-enemy of the Roman Empire in the east. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthians

Another good article on Parthia can be found at http://www.parthia-aramaic.org/ Parthians were at the Shavuot feast of Acts 2:1 mentioned as having occurred in Yehrushalayim. The Parthians and Medes in Acts 2:9 are identified as persons from a geographical area where the northern ten tribes of ’Ephraim were exiled and scattered, according to 2 Kings 17:5-8 and 1 Chronicles 5:26.

Media
Elam-Originally South Eastern Iran where Israelites were sent as captives.. Today known as the Polish and Slovakian people
Cappadocia – from http://www.friendsofsabbath.org/ABC/Israel/King%20David%92s%20Everlasting%20Dynasty!_McNair.pdf

The Apostles Peter and James mention these dispersed Israelites who, in N.T. times, were living in Asia Minor and in certain parts of S.E. Greece, in the vicinity of the Black Sea, the Bosphoros and the Dardenelles, and in Asia Minor, etc. The Apostle Peter, in mentioning some of these dispersed Israelites (Gk. Diaspora, said; Peter…. To the pilgrims of the dispersion [Dispersed Israelites] in Pontus, Galatia, Cappodocia, Asia and Bithynia, elect….of God the Father ( 1Peter 1:1-2 ) The apostle James address his epistle to the Twelve Tribes which were scattered abroad [ Dispersed] (James 1:1-2)

These other names are also areas where the Tribes of Israel were known to have migrated to. In Asia minor they were known as Cymri. In North Africa, Libya they were known as Carthaginians.

We are now going to take a quick look at where two of the Tribes of Israel are now. Who became what nation.

MACHIR AND AMERICA
Adapted from “The Tribes ” (http://britam.org/the-Tribes.html) by Yair Davidiy

An interesting fact is that:
THE NAME MACHIR IS RECALLED IN THAT OF AMERICA!

Machir was the first-born son of Manasseh son of Joseph (Genesis 50:23).

Machir was the forefather of the Gileadites (1-Chronicles 2:21).

The Phoenicians are believed to have visited AMERICA. According to Barry Fell the Phoenicians named it – “The Great North Country”. The Hebrew Prophets predicted that in the end time the Lost Ten Tribes would return from the “North Country” (Jeremiah 31:8). The Prophets certainly were well acquainted with the Phoenicians some of whom were in effect Israelite Tribes. The Vikings later attempted to settle in North America and named it “MARKLAND” which is believed to mean “Land of Darkness “(1). Even so, Maruk (a permutation of Machir) and Mark (in “Markland”) are not dissimilar. After the Vikings, the existence of America was realised by people in Britain including fishermen from the port of Bristol. Richard Ameryk, a Bristol merchant 1470’s is now claimed to perhaps have given America its name. Ameryk was of Welsh ancestry and his family name originally was “Ap-Meryk”, possibly denoting “Son of Machir”.

The more commonly accepted explanation is that the name “America” comes from that of the Explorer, Amerigo Vespucci (1451-1512) also called “America” and (after 1507) “America” is said to have been named in his honor. At all events, the name Amerigo or “America” is similar to Medieval appellations (“Aimerico “(2), etc.) for a Jewish Prince of southern France whose proper Hebrew name (from which the Latinised appellations were derived) was “MACHIR”. The name in Hebrew was also given as “HaMachiri”.
In Biblical Hebrew “HaMachiri” literally denotes “The Sons of Machir” (Numbers 26:29) but it could also connote “That which Comes of Machir” and in this case it was applied as a nickname to Machir himself and then Latinised to sound something like “America”!

The Hebrew version is difficult for untrained westerners to pronounce (or even remember) and so was rendered in Early Medieval Latin as “Americo” or “Amerigo” and this name was later given to Amerigo Vespucci who gave his name to the land of America. It follows that the name AMERICA may well be understood to mean “Land of Machir” (or “Land of the Sons of Machir”), son of Menasseh.

The very name “Menasseh” in Hebrew (according to the Commentary of Rabbi Shimshon Raphael Hirsch) can mean delegated responsible representation and this is a fundamental aspect of the North American character. The USA was created when its early settlers declared “no taxation without representation” and fought against Britain for their Independence.

America was named after Machir.

Brit-Am supporter Benyamin Turkia (of Finland, now living in Jerusalem) pointed out that “Machir” in Hebrew can mean “Selling” or even simply the Principle of Capitalism.
The principles of Captialism and Free Enterprise have also become part of the American character.

Note: It should be noted that in Rabbinical commentaries on the Bible and in Jewish tradition the meaning and origin of names is very important and this principle is supported by the Bible itself. Great emphasis is given to the meaning of names, e.g. the names of Abraham, Sarah, and Israel.

The Bull Calf

Biblical Locations of the Lost Ten Tribes

Scriptural Proof
The Joseph Aspect

by Yair Davidiy

Biblical Evidence: The Joseph Aspect
BULL-CALF AEGEL

The isles should be aware that God will gather in the scattered ones of Israel (Jeremiah 31:10). Rachel (the mother of Joseph) will no longer have to weep over the exile of her children for they will return (31:15-16). Ephraim (Jeremiah 31:18) is called a bullock or young bull:

[Jeremiah 31:18]
“I HAVE SURELY HEARD EPHRAIM BEMOANING HIMSELF THUS; THOU HAST CHASTISED ME, AND I WAS CHASTISED, AS A BULLOCK [Hebrew: AEGEL] UNACCUSTOMED TO THE YOKE: TURN THOU ME, AND I SHALL BE TURNED; FOR THOU ART THE LORD MY GOD.”

In Hebrew the word translated as “bullock” is “aegel”. Historically this very name “Aegel” was a diminutive (favorite nickname) for the ethnic term “Angle”. The Angles gave England (i.e. Angle-land) its name. Together with the Saxons, Jutes, Vandals, and others the Angles conquered from the Celts the land that was later named “England”. The Angles were also called Aegels. The appellations Angle and Aegel were employed interchangeably. The Hebrew word for young bull is “Aegel”. Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yistchaki 1040-1105 CE) was the foremost Medieval Jewish Commentator. In commentating on this verse (Jeremiah 31:18) Rashi states that the Hebrew word “Aegel” (Young Bull) was a name applied to Ephraim. As we saw, this was also another name applied to the English. The English now nickname themselves “John Bull”. Since the early 1800s the figure of John Bull has been used to portray Britain in political cartoons. John Bull parallels Uncle Sam who represents the USA.

The English (Angles) were also known as Aegels. The names Aegel and Angle appear to have been interchangeable. In Hebrew they could be two alternative ways of pronouncing the same word. For example, in old Ashkenazic (European) Hebrew the “ayin”-letter could have an “an” sound instead of the usual “a”, thus Yankel was a nickname for someone called Yakov, with the Ya- in Yacov being pronounced as “Yan”. Similarly Aegel and Angel could originally have both been different forms of the Hebrew word “Aegel”.

England (Angle-land) was named after the Angles. Angle is another form for Aegel and aegel was a nick-name for Ephraim. Aegel means young bull.

This is an important point: The verse (Jeremiah 31:18) is therefore strongly indicating that the English (Angles) are to be identified with Ephraim.

Concerning Joseph, Moses commented:

[Deuteronomy 33:17]
“HIS GLORY IS LIKE THE FIRSTLING OF HIS BULL”.

Ephraim shall return.

Ephraim and Nobility

Biblical Locations of the Lost Ten Tribes

Scriptural Proof
The Joseph Aspect

by Yair Davidiy

Biblical Evidence: The Joseph Aspect
Nobility

The Names “Ephraim” and “Ephrathite” (somebody from Ephraim) connote nobility as remarked upon by the Sages.

[Jeremiah 31:20]
“IS EPHRAIM MY DEAR SON? IS HE A PLEASANT CHILD? FOR SINCE I SPAKE AGAINST HIM, I DO EARNESTLY REMEMBER HIM STILL: THEREFORE MY BOWELS ARE TROUBLED FOR HIM; I WILL SURELY HAVE MERCY UPON HIM, SAITH THE LORD.”

> (Midrash YaYikra Rabah 2;3).

This Midrash refers to the fact that the very name Ephraim connotes nobility (as explained at length in our work Ephraim) whereas Menasseh connotes representative Accountable Democracy. Ephraim dominates Britain and Menasseh is prevalent in the USA. Ephraim (nobility, the aristocratic principle of government) still prevails in Britain whereas the democratic Principle is paramount in the USA.

See our book, “Ephraim” where we have spoken at great length on this issue.

We shall cover the tribes of Scotland and Ireland and Holland for my cousins next week.
