One of Jacob’s Sons

One of Jacob’s Sons

From its inception, the Israel Movement has been almost exclusively preoccupied with the identification of the leading birthright tribes, the House of Joseph and the Sceptre of Judah in the House of David. This can be readily understood. Following the expiration of the “seven times” of Israel’s chastisement and exile, the preponder­ance of history, both Biblical and secular, projects the leading tribes in Israel onto the world scene. However, it should never be overlooked that the Lord’s Covenants, both old and new, are with the whole House of Israel and, notwithstanding the fact that during this present interim, responsibility for establishing the nucleus of the Kingdom of God rests upon the House of Joseph, and ultimately the whole house of Jacob-Israel will become the Kingdom of our Lord at His coming. Thus in fulfilling the commis­sion to preach this Gospel of the Kingdom to all the nations, we must not fail our kinsmen who comprise whole nations and many segments of Israel who remain on the Continent of Europe.

The Lord God of hosts had declared through the prophet Amos:

“For, to, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.” (Amos 9: 9.)

A study of the migrations will show that Israel’s westward trek moved slowly across the continent with the main body of the captivity, those who travelled overland, taking more than a thousand years to reach central Europe. In the wake of this “Great Migration,” there were left behind pockets of people, racial influences and rear guards of liberty.
