….that the Europeans (Caucasians) are The Lost Tribes of Israel?

By Pastor Chuck Kuhler

MANY within the religious world consider that the Israelites were simply a small group of “hill tribes” residing in the Middle-east region some 3,000 – 4,000 years ago, and that they have completely disappeared from the face of the earth, and are not to be found today.

Let us consider this issue from the standpoint of numbers of people. In Genesis 46:27, we are informed that

“…all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were three score and ten.”

In retrospect, a total of seventy men, of the house of Jacob went into Israel.

[NOTE: It should be realized that in a census of Israel, only MEN between the ages of 20 and 50 – those who could carry a sword, to fight, were counted. Women, the young, and the aged were not counted in any census.]

Some 400 years later, at the time of the Exodus, the number of men in Israel had grown to 603,550 (see Exodus 38:26) – surely a prolific increase from the 70 souls who entered Egypt some 400 years previously.

At the census conducted by David (circa 1100 B.C.), there were a total of 1,300,000 men, with 800,000 from Israel and 500,000 from Judah (see 2 Samuel 24:9), a sizable force even by today’s standards.

Based upon scriptural figures given of these two numberings of all Israel men, it has been possible to build a computer model of all Israelites to calculate the total including women, children, and the aged. The number obtained through this computer model was calculated in excess of SIXTEEN MILLION PEOPLE! Further, the computer has projected that after an additional 400 years from David’s census the number of Israelites from both Israel and Judah would be in the neighbourhood of 20-22 million people. We are not talking about a few “hill tribes.” We are talking about tens of millions of people!

After the death of Solomon in 931 B.C. the Israel kingdom was divided as foretold by Almighty God in I Kings 11:9-11. Israel was the northern kingdom consisting of ten of the tribes with its capital at Samaria. The southern kingdom of Judah consisted of two tribes (Judah and Benjamin)with its capital in Jerusalem (see 1 Kings 11:13, 32, 36). Each of these kingdoms had distinct and separate prophets with Hosea being a prophet to Israel, and Jeremiah a prophet to Judah.

Suffice it to say that in the next 200 years, during the reign of 18 kings, that the house of Israel allowed sin to increase. Finally, the patience of God had reached its end and the Almighty moved the Assyrian empire to invade and conquer the northern kingdom of Israel. [Note: Is history about to repeat itself today as our Father’s patience with His sinful people must be reaching a zenith?]

Commencing in 741 B.C., and continuing for about a 65-year period lasting until 676 B.C., three Assyrian kings took Israel captive. The prophet Isaiah had well prophesied this in 7:8,

“Within three score and five years shall Ephraim (a name for Israel) be broken that it be not a nation.”

The ten tribes (Israelites) were carried away to the land of Media as found in I Chronicles 5:26, 2 Kings17:4-6, and 18:9-12. While many refer to the lost ten tribes, we find in the following scripture in 2 Kings18:13,

“Now in the fourteenth year of king Hezekiah did Sennacherib, king of Assyria come up against all the fenced cities of Judah, and took them.”

The lost ten tribes, with this scripture has now become the lost TWELVE tribes. Only the city of Jerusalem remained as the angel of the LORD moved against the Assyrians and they withdrew, leaving Jerusalem intact (see: 2 Kings 19:35). It should be understood that during the years of the Assyrian incursions/invasions, some of the Israelites/Judahites fled to other areas, founding Carthage in North Africa, and to Greece, Italy, France, Asia Minor, and other geographic locations. Close to 200 years later, circa 520 B.C.,the king of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar, moved against the city of Jerusalem and removed almost 900,000 inhabitants to Babylon. This is what is known as the seventy weeks prophecy of Jeremiah 25:11-12. Seventy years later, we are informed in Nehemiah 7 and Ezra 2, that 42,000+ returned to rebuild the city of Jerusalem.

What happened to the other 850,000 missing inhabitants of old Jerusalem? And further, what happened to the combined total of 20-22 million Israelites/Judahites?

Did these peoples (tribes) disappear off of the face of the earth? Given the lack of concern and attention that the early “established church” and modern-day “churchianity,” has given to the matter, you could make that presumption.

But God has told us that the Israelites are with us even to this very day. In Jeremiah 31:35-36 we are told,

“Thus saith the LORD which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name; If these ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.”

The sun, the moon, and the stars are still with us, and therefore Israel must still be a presence in the world today.

The Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, writing during the mid-to-late years of the first century wrote, “Wherefore there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till now and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated in numbers.” [1]

In the Apocrypha, in the Book of 2 Esdras 13:39-46 we read,

“And whereas thou sawest that he gathered another peaceable multitude unto him; Those are the ten tribes. Which were carried away prisoners out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanaser the king of Assyria led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they into another land. But they took counsel among themselves that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country where never mankind dwelt. That they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land. And they entered into Euphrates by the narrow passages of the river. For the most High then showed signs for them and held still the flood, till they were passed over. For through that country there was a great way to go, namely of a year and a half: and the same region is called Arsareth. Then dwelt they there until the latter time; and now when they shall begin to come, the Highest shall stay the springs of the streams again, that they may go through: therefore sawest thou the multitude with peace.”

The historian, Herodotus, also makes mention of the migrations of these people, as does Sharon Turner, the great Anglo-Saxon historian.

In Scripture we find the following references. In Hosea 1:10-11 we read,

“Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them. Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God. Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head [Christ Jesus] and they shall come up out of the land; for great shall be the day of Jezreel…” (a joining together of two into one).

In 2 Samuel 7:10, we read,

“Moreover I will appoint a place for My people ]srael, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither will the children of wickedness afflict them anymore as before time.”

Where was this future place that God had in mind for Israel? They were in Canaan land (Palestine) at the time of this prophecy.

In Genesis 17 (the Abrahamic Covenant), verses 4-7,

“As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee..And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”

This is an “unconditional” covenant!

In Genesis 22:18, we read,

“And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed…”

Further, in Genesis 26:4, we read of the same blessings conveyed upon Isaac,

“And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries, and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.”

This would indicate that “all nations” would be “blessed” through a race of people. What people fit that role? Surely not the Talmudist rabble of the Israeli!

In John 7:35 we read,

“Then said the Jews among themselves, Whither will he go. That we shall not find him? Will he go unto the dispersed among the Gentiles…?”

Obviously, the Jews of Jesus’ time were well aware of the location of the dispersed Israelites.

In 1 Peter1: 1-2, we read,

“Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia. Elect [chosen) according to the foreknowledge of God the Father…”

Throughout scripture, Israel is referred to as being the “elect” and “chosen” of the Almighty.

In James 1:1, we read,

“James, a servant of God and of the LORD Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting…”

How is it that James knew that the twelve tribes of Israel were scattered abroad, and were not located in Palestine at that time?

And in Matthew 10:5-6,we have the words of Jesus instructing his disciples,

“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: But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel…”

Jesus was most explicit about “who” the disciples were to go to.

And finally in Matthew 15:24, Jesus tells the Canaanite woman just who he was sent to,

“…I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.”

Could this be any plainer and more specific?

So why is it that Christian Israelitism is always under attack by all manner of groups? When you study back through both secular and Scriptural history, there is no other answer than to accept that Israel, though yet blinded to their identity, is alive and well in the world today and can be found in the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Germanic, Celtic, and related peoples.

First, the Talmudists hate us since we pose a threat to their illicit claim to be “the Chosen people of God.” If the truth were to be known that these anti-Christ and ungodly impostors were just that – impostors – what would happen to all of the support from the Evangelicals and Fundamentalists for them? It has only been in the last 60+ years that the ungodly ones have managed to con much of Christianity into believing that they, the anti-Christ Jews, are the “chosen” of God.

The second venue of attack against our beliefs comes from the so-called Christian churches. As the early “established church” evolved within the first centuries, they made the decision to put great distance between the corrupted, perverted and Talmudic doctrines of Judaism, and in essence, established the totally new religion of Christianity. They decided to forget and abandon most all of the God-given Hebrew religion which existed prior to the establishment of Babylonian, Judaism. The Christian churches have today evolved into materialistic “big business” and in order to survive, they can not afford to have the truth emerge that they have been promoting a false doctrine for centuries.

The concept of the modern church is based on the premise that physical Israel is totally lost and gone, and that “the church” has replaced it as a modern spiritual Israel. But that is not what the Scriptures say. In fact, there is no mention in Scripture of a spiritual Israel. All of the promises of God found in the Scriptures are meant for one people – ISRAEL. But the church steeped in its traditions and materialistic ways has ascertained that the promises of God to Israel can be delegated and assigned to all non-Israel peoples. Who has delegated and given the “church” the role to change and modify Scripture?

The civil authorities want no mention of who Israel truly is, as that would violate all of the politically correct nonsense that they are promoting today. Most in authority (and in the media) find it incomprehensible that God can have a bias when it comes to differing peoples. This is one reason why every time the media gets a chance, it labels our beliefs as racist and cultish. They can not afford to have the truth be known as it does contradict the many traditions of men which prevail today.

But the Bible is not written and addressed to everyone. The Bible was written to, for, and about Israel only!

So we find “organized religion” consisting of both Judaism, and the so-called Christian churches allied against the truth of Scripture in an effort to maintain their own existence. With all of the scandals and problems affecting organized religion today, we find more and more of our people searching for Scriptural truth. I would hope and pray that you would follow through and verify the accuracy of what has been written in this article, and then study the Scriptures to both determine and ascertain your responsibilities to the Most High.
