The point of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible is not Israel or the 12 tribes, it is Jesus.
This linked website is a misguided group ("True Israelites II (revived) Celto-Saxon & Kindred Faithful, Matt 15:24.") who are fighting against God and the Bible.
Turning the Scriptures upside down and backwards, they believe the US is the new Israel, and that they are the true
British-Israelism, or Anglo-Israelism (Armstrongism), in addition to distorting the Scriptures through its preconceived bias and hatred, misuses national pride to fuel the white supremacist, anti-Semitic groups that spread their poisonous propaganda today. Satan’s attempts to destroy the Jewish people have taken various forms in history, from the days of Pharaoh and Haman and to the murderous plans of Hitler.
Now, in these last days, Satan, the evil one promotes the lie that the Jews are not truly the Jews, attempting to rob Israel of God's promises and covenants and transfer them to the Anglo-Saxon race!
On the basis of Scripture, history and archaeology, there is no such thing as the ten lost tribes. The only thing God declared forever lost was the "northern kingdom" of Israel, that it would never again exist as a separate nation and government from the southern kingdom.
Ancient Assyrian cuneiform states that 27,290 captives were taken from Samaria, the capital of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, by the hand of Sargon II . Sargon records his first campaign on the walls of the royal palace at Dur-Sharrukin (Khorsabad): "In my first year of reign *** the people of Samaria [Israel] *** to the number of 27,290 ... I carried away."
The northern kingdom of Israel's population was estimated to have been 500,000, so 27,290 was not actually a large percentage of their population. Many of their people were also killed in the Assyrian invasion, and some had managed to migrate south to Judah before the invasion occurred.
When the Jews returned from Babylonian captivity in 536 B.C., the Bible viewed the restored community as the remnant of all Israel, from both the northern and southern kingdoms, and not just of the tribe of Judah: "Now the first inhabitants who dwelt in their possessions in their cities were the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the Nethinim.
Forced to vacate their priestly positions under Jeroboam (I Kings 12:31), the Levites had drifted south to Judah. Since Rehoboam's capital remained Jerusalem, they naturally attached themselves to the Temple's religious service there.And in Jerusalem dwelt the children of Judah, and the children of Benjamin, and the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh" (1 Chronicles 9:2–3).
According to these verses, to find Ephraim and Manasseh, one must look not in England and America, but in Jerusalem following the return from Babylon.
At that time, the people viewed themselves as part of all Israel, for they offered “twelve he-goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel” (Ezra 6:17).
It was the tribe of Judah, not the House of Joseph (Manasseh and Ephraim) that received the greatest honor and blessing of all the tribes, for Jesus Christ, the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world is the Lion of the tribe of Judah.
2 Chronicles 15:9 reveals that some men from the northern kingdom of Israel were living in the southern kingdom. Nehemiah 11:20 teaches that after the Jews returned to the land after the deportations, men from all of the ten northern tribes of Israel were present with the tribes of the southern kingdom of Judah.
The 12 tribes continued to exist in the body of the southern kingdom with the terms “Jews” and “Israel” interchangeably applied to all of the covenant people after their returns from captivity.
Although some members of each tribe were scattered among the nations during their diaspora, none of the tribes of Israel have ever been lost.
If the ten northern tribes somehow resurfaced as the British people in the British Isles, and if the Prophet Jeremiah actually traveled to Britain to establish King David’s throne there, the silence of the New Testament in this regard, is deafening!
The NT refers to only one group of people, not two, who are the descendants from Jacob: "Who are Israelites; to whom pertains 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, who is over all, God blessed forever. Amen" (Romans 9:4–5).
The New Testament uses the term "Jew" 174 times and the term "Israel" 75 times, applying them to the same body of people. The Apostle Paul referred to himself as both a "Jew" (Acts 22:3) and an "Israelite" (Rom. 11:1), and he never distinguished between Jews and Israel, as the British-Israelism cult does.
When Paul spoke of his Jewish brethren, he spoke of a common promise and a common hope: “Unto which promise our twelve tribes,
earnestly serving God day and night, hope to come” (Acts 26:7). James addressed his epistle “to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad” (James 1:1). He made no distinction between southern Judah and the northern ten tribes. All Jews were part of a common body, some were in the land of Israel and some in the Diaspora. Members of all the tribes existed, both inside and outside the Promised Land.
God promised that when the Jews returned and governed their land once more, they would prosper and multiply. This is being fulfilled today in modern-day Israel.
Then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again recover the second time with His hand
The remnant of His people, who will remain, From Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath,
and from the coastlands (continents) of the sea.And He will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel,
And will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Israel consistently ranks high among the world’s economies in terms of its technological readiness, venture capital availability, and the quality of its research organizations. The country ranks first in availability of scientists and engineers, number of start-ups per capita, and venture capital investments per capita.
There is only one explanation: God is behind their nation. He is preparing His land and His people for their final End Times trial in the Great Tribulation, followed by the return of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem.
Biblical prophecy reassures us that although Jews today do not know from which tribe they descended (since the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 A.D., except for the Levites), God knows. Revelation 7:4–8 and Ezekiel 48 declare that representatives of restored Israel will be present in the Tribulation and also in the Millennial Kingdom.
Whether or not we take part in biblical prophecy, or even understand it, God’s Word will come to pass.
Ezekiel 37:15 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,
16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:
17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.
20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.
21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:
22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.God fulfilled the law in Jesus Christ, He brought an end to temple sacrifice in Christ, and Jesus is now our Savior, our great High Priest and Mediator. Again, the point of the Holy Scriptures of the Bible is not Israel or the 12 tribes, it is Jesus.
