Who Is Israel?
Who is this message of the Jubilee addressed to? This is important to know as most people think it is irrelevant because they wrongly assume it only applied to the current State of Israel or the Jews or a group of people long gone from history. Yet, it is addressed to Israel and to Judah. It is applicable for all time for all the earth.
Who is Israel today? Israel is the United States, England, Australia and Canada, as well as Norway, Sweden, France, Denmark, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Iceland, South Africa, and other countries of Northwestern Europe. Judah is represented by the State of Israel and the Jewish people. So this curse is applicable to these countries and these peoples. Basically it covers the Anglo-Saxon people.
From http://philologos.org/bpr/files/j006.htm â€œAt the Western Wall today (March 22nd, 2001) and in yeshivas, synagogues and religious schools throughout Israel, the sound of shofar blasts, the singing of Hebrew Psalms, alongside of cries and tearsâ€”accompanied by wails of repentance, were heard in response to a declaration by the Gedolei Yisrael (Great Ones of Israel) formally recognizing the beginning of the time of â€˜Jacobâ€™s trouble.â€™
Thursday, March 22nd, 2001 (the 27th of Adar, 5761, was assigned an earlier designated time in which to celebrate Rosh Chodesh Nisan, (the 1st day of Nisan), since the 1st day of Nisan actually falls on Sunday. Ordinarily, Rosh Chodesh Nisan is designated the timeframe in keeping with Yom Kippur Katan (a small Yom Kippur).
So, over the past 24 hours the Jewish community in Israel and throughout the world has united in prayer. What is unusual about this yearâ€™s Yom Kippur Katan is that in light of the 6-month-old Palestinian uprising, which has claimed the lives of 57 Israelis, including more than 20 through the direct involvement and participation of Yasser Arafatâ€™s Palestinian Authority, the Rabbis have added the designation as â€˜a time of Jacobâ€™s trouble.â€™
Further, it is signed by ALL 27 of the leading Orthodox and Chassidic Sages, both the â€˜maranan verabononâ€™ (masters and teachers) and the â€˜Gedolei ha-Torah vehaChassidus (Torah Sages among the Chassidut).â€™â€
The declaration begins and is formally designated:
â€œIT IS A TROUBLED TIME FOR YA’ACOV BUT HE WILL BE SAVED.â€
Jacob is often used to denote Israel. The title of Israel was passed down to the son of Jacob, Joseph, and to his son Manasseh and Ephraim. Some of you will, no doubt, be saying that all this Jubilee business, Holy Days, and counting of the Omer has nothing to do with you and applies strictly to the Israelites.
Yet, the fact remains that Yahweh made the promise to Abraham and to his seed. Yahweh did not change His mind and begin to work with another group of people somewhere else in the world. Nor did He change His mind and start to work with one particular church group. Yahweh chose Israel and only Israel. He chose Abrahamâ€™s descendants. They did not choose Him. The Ten Tribes of Israel disappeared and we only know of the Jews today. The Jews today are not the Ten Tribes of Israel.
So, who is Israel and who is responsible for teaching Yahwehâ€™s Jubilee and Holy Days? Cutting to the chase in Yair Davidiyâ€™s two books, Origin and The Two Tribes respectively, we read:
Britain is dominated by Ephraim. An â€œEphratiâ€ in Hebrew is someone from Ephraim and the name also implies aristocrat and in Britain the Aristocratic social principle still applies. The word â€œEnglandâ€ means â€œAngle-landâ€ and the Angles were also known as Aegli (meaning â€œbull-calfâ€ in Hebrew), which was a nickname for Ephraim, Jeremiah 31:17, 18. The English are still represented by John Bull. The word for England in French â€œAngleterre,â€ means â€œcorner of the worldâ€ and Britain is at the end of the earth, in islands, sea-farers, did rule over other peoples (as predicted of Ephraim), and did possess strategic â€œgatesâ€ of international importance. Ephraim is also amongst the â€œdaughtersâ€ of Britain such as Australia, which is the land of â€œSinimâ€ or the â€œGreat South Landâ€ prophesied by Isaiah 49:8. Other countries belonging to Ephraim include New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa. In addition to this, many descendants of Ephraim dwell in the USA which however is dominated by Manasseh.
Manassehâ€™s children became known as Machir (haMahir) by the Assyrians. Later they were called Amyrgian Scyths (Amyrgio Scuthae), as well as, (Margiana, Marycaei, Maruca) during the Assyrian Captivity. As time marched on they became known as Gimirri Umurgah at around 522-486 BC by the Babylonians and after they were freed by the Babylonians and Medes. Still, later as these people migrated to northwestern Europe they were called Umergaâ€“Amyrgioâ€“Umerugi (Saxon Germany), Mercian Saxons (England), Marukaâ€“Skati Maruka Abis Maurungani around 700 CE. Still, later on some were known as Ap-Merykâ€“Son of Machirâ€”until in 1470 we have in ancient records Richard Ameryk and other records still with the title Americaâ€“Land of Machir 1451-1512.
One of the meanings of â€œMachirâ€ in Hebrew is selling or the principle of Capitalism. The USA is dominated by Manasseh. Ephraim was to become greater before Manasseh (Genesis 48:20) who would then become the paramount power in the world. This is hinted at in the reference of Balaam to â€œUnicornsâ€ (Numbers 24) and the Unicorn, says a Midrash, is the symbol of Manasseh. The symbol of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh together) was a picture representing Egypt. The USA does use such a sign (the Pyramid) as an official symbol on the Great Seal of the USA. The USA through its enjoyment of mineral resources, agricultural plenty, wealth, and power fulfills the blessings promised to descendants of Joseph. By its international policies and aid to others, the USA fulfills the promise of Abraham to become a great and mighty nation in order to do justice and judgment. (Genesis 18:19)
France is dominated by Reuben. The symbols of France and the French include a cock, the fleur-de-lys, and the sun. These are linked to Reuben. Reuben inherited part of Israel adjoining the Euphrates River. The Ribuari (Franks) settled in Gaul. â€œRibuariâ€ means Reubeni. They were also known as the Rubi. Sons of Reuben were Hanoch, Phallu, Hezron, and Carmi (Genesis 49:6). These gave their names to different peoples who settled in France. The meaning of their names denotes something of the French character: Hanoch = Education, Inauguration, Ceremony. Phallu = Distinction. Hezron = Provincial Ruler, Peasant. Carmi = Vineyard. Other characteristics associated with Reuben such as romantic inclinations and impetuous instability are also attributed to the French. The French were the first to achieve greatness and fulfilled the role prophesied for Reuben.
Ireland is dominated by Simeon with many from Dan and elements of Ephraim.
Belgium is pertinent to Benjamin. Belgium received its name from Belgae. Bela was a son of Benjamin and this name in ancient Hebrew could be pronounced as â€œBelagh.â€
Holland pertains to Zebulun as proven by its dependence on protection from flooding with its population dwelling on the â€œShores of the Sea.â€ The names of peoples who settled in Holland (such as â€œSabalingoiâ€) recall Zebulun and clans of Zebulun. The traditional Symbol of Holland was a ship which was also the symbol of Zebulun.
Denmark is the nation of the Danes, descendants of Dan.
Norway was colonized by Naphtalite Huns and other groups of Naphtali.
Sweden was founded by Goths and Svea or Suiones. The Goths were named after Gad and the Suiones after Shuni, the son of Gad. Other groups associated with Sweden and the Goths have names similar to those of clans of Gad. The Arodi of Gad became the Harudi and Hreadgoths of Scandinavia. The Areli of Gad became the Erules of Sweden.
Finland was settled by peoples from the Israelite tribes of Gad, Simeon and especially Issachar. The earliest traditions of Finland repeat the tradition that they were descended from the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.
Switzerland is made up of Issachar as well as some of the other tribes of Israel.

So, it should now be very clear as to whom these blessings and curses from Leviticus apply. To the richest nation ever blessed on the face of the earth, now comes the curse that will destroy her for not following and obeying Himâ€”just as Yahweh made His intentions known to Abraham. These things are to be applied to the United States of America, Manasseh, and to England and her colonies, Ephraim!
We have now shown you that these Jubilees are important to Yahweh. We have also shown you who these things are directed at.
But, let us let the bible show you that Israel and Judah are two different people. We read in the following scriptures;
When he numbered them in Bezek, the children of Israel were three hundred thousand, and the men of Judah thirty thousand. 1Samuel 11:8
But all Israel and Judah loved David, because he went out and came in before them. 1Samuel 18:16
Ishbosheth, Saul’s son, was forty years old when he began to reign over Israel, and he reigned two years. Only the house of Judah followed David. 2Samuel 2:10
And Judah was defeated by Israel, and every man fled to his tent. 2Ki 14:12
Judah and Israel are two different peoples. Judah is one of twelve tribes. Israel is ten of the twelve tribes with Joseph as the head tribe. Joseph is known to have two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh.
We have shown above that these two tribes of Joseph became what are now known as the Angles, or English. Out of England, Angle-Terre, came the Americans.
Is the English Language Related to Hebrew?
In answer to this question, here is an extract from, The Hidden Ancestry of America & Great Britain by Stephen J. Spykerman:
The English language too is akin to Hebrew. A number of Bible translators and Hebrew scholars have remarked that the English language is the most similar to Hebrew. The greatest of these was William Tyndale, who first translated the Hebrew Bible into English. Tyndale was an accomplished linguist and an exceptional scholar who had mastered seven languages including Hebrew. He said that English was the easiest language to translate from Hebrew.
Is Hebrew the Mother Tongue of Mankind?
According to the eminent etymologist Isaac E. Moseson, Hebrew is the mother tongue of mankind. After more than ten years of original research, he was able to trace more than 22,000 English words back to their ultimate origin in Biblical Hebrew. His conclusive research proves that â€˜English and Hebrew are profoundly connected.â€™ His findings show that â€˜many more words should be acknowledged as borrowings from the Hebrew.â€ He says, â€œThere are hundreds of English and Hebrew words that sound remarkably alike and mean the same (thing), but are not cited by linguists.â€ (emphasis mine)
A few of these are abash and boosha, albino and labhan, evil and avel, lick and lakak, regular and rageel, and direction and derech.
Further evidence of a connection exists in word meanings. Moseson tells us, â€œMany names of animals have meanings in Hebrew. Giraffe means â€˜neckâ€™ and skunk means â€˜stink.â€™â€ His recently published groundbreaking book called, The Word presents the greatest challenge to linguists the world over. The 22,000 English parallels he traces to Hebrew are totally beyond coincidence, and they call for a fundamental re-examination of our etymological understanding. In fact, his The Word book gives the greatest boost to the biblical thesis that all human languages derive from a single â€˜mother tongue.â€™
Yair Davidy, an Israeli author of numerous historical books, who I quoted earlier, has come up with his own examples of Hebrew parallels to English words. As none of his examples are listed in Isaac Mosesonâ€™s, The Word book, it indicates that there are many more than 22,000 English words that can be traced to their Hebrew originals. To mention only a few of the thousands of examples of the similarity between English and Hebrew, just look at the similarity of the meaning of the following words:
The Hebrew word for â€œmireâ€ is botz, and for a swamp where the ground is waterlogged is baitsa. This can be pronounced much like the word â€œbeachâ€ in English, and it is, in all probability, the origin of the word. The English word for â€œeyeâ€ is derived from the Hebrew word ayin, meaning â€œeye.â€ The word â€œinkâ€ in Hebrew is diyo. This is clearly where the English word â€œdyeâ€ comes from. A â€œpenknifeâ€ in Hebrew is called taar, meaning any kind of sharp cutting instrument. This is the most likely origin of the English word for â€œtear.â€ The English word â€œdumbâ€ is derived from the Hebrew dom, meaning to be silent.
Is There a Genetic Relationship Between English and Both Hebrew and Egyptian?
An eminent language scholar from Denmark, Dr. Louis Hjelmslev, carried out extensive, groundbreaking research into the root structure of languages. In his book, Language: An Introduction (University of Wisconsin Press, 1970), he highlights the enormous influence of the Semitic tongue upon the Indo-European languages. He states that most European words are borrowings from non-Indo-European languages. More specifically he says, â€œâ€¦a genetic relationship between Indo-European and Hamito-Semitic (i.e., Egyptian-Hebrew) was demonstrated in detail by the Danish Linguist Herman Moller, using the method of elemental functions.â€ (p.79) This happens to be a most important point. Why? It is primarily because the similarity between Hebrew and English goes far beyond the mere resemblance of words. The elemental functions represent a â€œgenetic relationshipâ€ between English and both Hebrew and Egyptian. (p.83) These languages are therefore related in their very root structure, showing a common origin.
Are the Semites Our Own Countrymen?
Given these facts, a group of Danish language scholars proposed eliminating the separate language categories of Semitic and Indo-European, combining them into one new category called, â€˜Nostratic,â€™ a name proposed by Holger Pedersen for the languages related to our ownâ€”namely Hamito (Egyptian) and Semitic (Hebrew). Interestingly, the word, â€˜nostratic,â€™ is taken from the Latin word â€˜nostras,â€™ meaning â€œour own countrymen.â€ (p.80) Yes, the Semites (he says) are our own countrymen, because both language streams indicate a common origin in their very root structure. The question being, how on earth could the Celtic and Anglo-Saxon people of Britain exhibit language characteristics similar to both Hebrew and Egyptian?
The most logical explanation is that the ancestors of those same Celts and Anglo-Saxons were themselves Hebrews who escaped from their captivity in Egypt in ancient times. Israel’s own history bookâ€”the Bibleâ€”confirms that the ancient Israelites spent a considerable time in Egyptian bondage and consequently would have acquired a solid mixture of both Egyptian and Hebrew in their vocabulary. Thus the mystery, as to why the root structure of modern day English shows a clear Egyptian and Hebrew origin, is solved. This also explains why some 22,000 plus words in the English language are clearly borrowed from Hebrew originals. Going by the above facts, it does appear that there are legitimate grounds for believing that the English-speaking peoples have indeed descended from Abraham.
A Common Language Is “Prima Facie” Evidence of a Common Lineage!
At this point the skeptic may well ask, “What relevance does all this talk of language really indicate?” James Cowles Pritchard was considered to be the most famous language expert of the 19th Century. In fact, today he is considered the â€˜founder of modern anthropology.
This same Pritchard said:
A common language is prima facie evidence in favour of a common lineage. Language is one of those signs of community of origin which is slow to be abolishedâ€”slower than most others.”
(Eastern Origins of the Celtic Nations, 1857).
