The Bible prophecies of Europeans spreading everywhere
The Bible clearly states that Jacob’s seed was destined to spread across the entire world. The Israelites were never supposed to be limited to the land of Canaan. Yahweh had bigger plans for us right from the beginning. These prophecies of expansion were given early on to the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in Genesis 28:14: “And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”
Yahweh promised that Jacob’s seed (the children of Israel) would become a vast multitude and spread to all corners of the world: north, south, east, and west. In them and because of them, the world would be blessed. And this wasn’t the only prophecy. At the time of his death, Moses blessed the Israelites and prophesied that “the horns of Joseph” would drive the Israelites to “the ends of the earth” Deut. 33:17. Later around 700 BC, the Prophet Isaiah spoke Yahweh’s promises to the Israelites who were being deported by the Assyrians: “He [Yahweh] shall cause them that come of Jacob to take root: Israel shall blossom and bud, and fill the face of the world with fruit” Isaiah 27:6. This fruitfulness would happen at a future time, after the punishment of the deportations.
The fact that both Moses’ and Isaiah’s prophecies were similar to the Patriarchs’ and were given hundreds of years later shows that the original promises to the Patriarchs were yet to be fulfilled. Even though the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah had been established by the time Isaiah was writing to the Israelites who were being deported by the Assyrians, the Israelites had yet to spread across the entire world. We will show how the seed of Jacob gradually migrated into Europe. From those massive migrations over many centuries, it becomes obvious that the Europeans and only the Europeans (the new name for the seed of Jacob) fulfilled these prophecies, primarily through European colonization and especially through the British Empire.
With these prophecies in mind, let’s step back and ask a basic question: “What race has spread across the entire world?” Because whatever race has fulfilled these Bible prophecies, that same race is the recipient of the promises. That race alone is the true seed of Jacob. Over the past few thousand years, only one race — the white Europeans — has spread across the earth, populated every continent, and brought the blessing of Christian civilization with them. Only the Europeans have accomplished this. This is proof that white Europeans are truly the descendants of Jacob, the true Israelites, the true people of Yahweh who is the God of the Bible. To claim that any other people have fulfilled these prophecies is to deny Scripture, mock reality, and to engage in self-deception.
When we look at maps from over a century ago, we clearly see the extent of white European civilization and colonization. That was the result of the deportations of the Israelites and their migrations to Europe (including Russia) and from Europe to Greenland, Iceland and then during the colonization periods to the rest of the world: North, Central, and South America; Canada; Australia; New Zealand; Africa; India; and even but to a lesser degree the Middle East, China, and Indonesia. There is no place on earth that our people and race have not settled. We are everywhere and wherever we settled, we have brought the civilizing effects of Christianity. No other race throughout history can claim to have fulfilled these prophecies; therefore, no other race can be Israel except the European race.
Let’s look more closely at how this Scriptural prophecy unfolded through the migrations of the Israelites. Ancient historians and ancient historical inscriptions record these journeys. To fully grasp the prophecies and the real identity of the Israelites, we must first be familiar with the ancient migrations of the seed of Jacob. We must uncover the truth of history as it unfolded under the hand of Yahweh, and not read antichrist propaganda back into history.
The Untold Story of the Exodus
It might come as a surprise, but not all the Israelites followed Moses into the desert. In fact, the first Israelite migration of any magnitude happened right at the beginning of the Exodus when a large swath of Israelites stuck out for Europe in ships. Unfortunately, most of our people today are unaware of this early migration to Europe; this ignorance is due to the fact that real history is no longer taught in schools. This group of Israelites sailed to Anatolia and Greece and lands that would become Europe. But most Westerners are familiar with the story of Moses and the Exodus, at least in outline. The Israelites were liberated from Egyptian slavery, wandered forty years in the desert, and finally entered the Promised Land of Canaan.
Historian Diodorus Siculus recounts the Exodus from Egypt and confirms that the Israelites split into two groups; the smaller one sea-bound for Europe; the other on foot following Moses to the land that would be called Judea by the time of Siculus. We must note, however, that even this great historian made a few errors. He stated that Canaan was uninhabited. But the land was inhabited by Canaanites, as the Scripture records.
“The Aliens [Israelites] were driven from the country [Egypt], and the most outstanding and active among them banded together and, as some say, were cast ashore in Greece and certain other regions, their leaders were notable men, chief among them being Danaus and Cadmus. But the majority of the people descended into a country not far from Egypt, which is now called Judaea and at that time was altogether uninhabited.
“The leader of this colony was one Moses, a very wise and valiant man, who, after he had possessed himself of the country, amongst other cities, built that now most famous city, Jerusalem, and the temple there, which is so greatly revered among them. He instituted the holy rites and ceremonies with which they worship God; and made laws for the methodical government of the state. He also divided the people into twelve tribes, which he regarded as the most perfect number; because it corresponds to the twelve months within a whole year…” (Diodorus Siculus, Bibliotheca Historica, 40.2-3)
Danaus and the Danaans Greeks
The break-away group of Israelites who reached the shores of Greece is known as the Danoi (Δαναοί by Homer). Danoi is generally translated into English as Danaans, which indicates that they were primarily Israelites from the tribe of Dan. Greece was already largely inhabited by the Ionians, who were also known as “Yavana,” since they were descended from the Biblical patriarch Javan, son of Japeth. Among the Israelites (Danaans) were two notable leaders called Danaus and Cadmus, as noted by Diodorus Siculus.
Danaus is called “Danaus the Egyptian,” whilst Cadmus is known as “Cadmus the Phoenician.” Danaus, who led the Danaans, was said to have been a son of a Pharaoh of Egypt named Bellah. He is reputed to have led the Danaans to where they settled in Achaea (Ἀχαιοί Akhaioí), Argos being their most prosperous city and for that reason, the Danaans are sometimes called Acheans in the Greek Histories.
“They say also that those who set forth with Danaus, likewise from Egypt, settled what is practically the oldest city in Greece, Argos.” (Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, 1.2)
Whilst we can trace no such man called Danaus in the Biblical Exodus account nor in the history of Egypt, we can assume a foundation of truth undergirding the Greek myths and legends centered around Danaus. He is likely the patriarch Dan of the tribe of Dan, one of the twelve sons of Jacob (Israel), whose mother was Bilhah (see Gen.30:1-6). Dan lived several centuries before the Exodus. The tribe of Dan habitually named everything after their patriarch, including themselves. Perhaps the Greeks and their historians assumed that the eponymous patriarch Dan led the Danaans and did not fully understand the origin and history of the tribe of Dan. Most likely a large number from the tribe of Dan migrated to Greece instead of following Moses into the Sinai desert.
Cadmus the Phoenician
The noted leader Cadmus was reputed to have founded the city of Thebes, which became a Phoenician colony This is probably why he was called “Cadmus the Phoenician.” He introduced the Hebrew/Phoenician alphabet into Greece, and this alphabet gradually became the common alphabet throughout all of Greece. Although he was known as a Phoenician, Cadmus was an Israelite. That’s because the Phoenicians were Israelites (which we’ll get to shortly) and were among the waves of Israelites who were moving north and west and colonizing Europe.
“After this Cadmus, they say, in accordance with the oracle he had received, founded Thebes in Boeotia.” (Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, 5.49)
“These Phoenicians who came with Cadmus and of whom Gephyraens were a part brought with them to Hellas, among many other kinds of learning, the alphabet, which had been unknown before this, I think, to the Greeks. As time went on the sound and form of the letters were changed.” (Herodotus, Histories, 5.58)
Troy the Great City
Legendary Troy is another great civilization that seemed to have appeared from nowhere around the same time that the Israelites were spreading into Europe. Yahweh promised that Abraham’s stock would produce many nations and many kings. Abraham’s great-grandson Judah was assured that his tribe would be the kingly tribe. Judah had twin sons, Perez and Zerah. From the bloodline of Perez came King David, King Solomon, and others. But what kings came from Zerah? His sons are listed in the Bible:
“The sons of Zerah: Zimri, Ethan, Heman, Kalkol and Darda—five in all”(I Chronicles 2:6).
But after these sons are named, they disappear from the Bible. Around the time of the Exodus from Egypt, Zerah is mentioned and he is with his twin brother, Perez. But only the sons of Perez are present. Meanwhile, in Greek history of the same period, famous kings seem to appear out of nowhere with the same names as the sons of Zerah. Calchol (Kalkol) is linked to the Milesians, who later became Irish kings. A King Darda arose in the Troad (West Coast of Turkey), where he founded a colony named Dardania. His people were the Dardanians.
“Of these children Dardanus, who was a man who entertained great designs and was the first to make his way across to Asia in a makeshift boat, founded at the outset a city called Dardanus, organized the kingdom which lay about the city which was called Troy at a later time, and called the peoples Dardanians after himself.” (Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, 4.75.3)
Above is a family tree constructed from Homer’s genealogy of the Trojans. The Greeks often believed they descended from gods so note it would have also included Zeus as the origin of Dardanus in the bloodline.
Darda’s grandson named Tros founded the City of Troy, which he named after himself. The city of Troy and the Trojans became even more prosperous than Dardania and the Dardanians and grew large and wealthy enough to eclipse them. So we can see that the Trojans were Israelites from the tribe of Judah, coming down through Zerah.
“To Erichthonius was born a son Tros, who called the people of the land Trojans, after his own name.” (Diodorus Siculus, Library of History, 5.48)
Zerah’s son Calchol became the Kings of the Milesians, a colony in the southern part of Anatolia (Southwest coast of Turkey). Milesia did not rise to prominence until after the Trojan War. Calchol was another Israelite who founded a great civilization and a kingly bloodline. Throughout history, many kings have claimed descent from the Trojans or the Milesians, or even both. Clearly, these were among the nations and kings promised to Abraham which were to come through Judah. And indeed they were kings of great renown, and that is even recorded in Scripture. A few centuries after the Trojan War, King Solomon is compared for his wisdom to these very kings, most notably Calchol and Darda.
“For he was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations around about” I Kings 4:31 KJV.
If Solomon, reputedly the wisest man who ever lived, is compared to these men in wisdom, then these men must have been considerable men of renown. If not then why would Solomon be compared to them? If they were insignificant men, the comparison would be senseless. But knowing that these men founded great dynasties that have lasted to this day and that they were kings of Judah just like Solomon, we can fully understand why the comparison is made in our Bible. The name “Mahol” could be a title meaning “greatness,” as in the “greatness of Darda” and so on. This greatness, this wisdom is our history.
The Colonization of the Phoenicians
The Israelites who followed Moses out of Egypt conquered Canaan and settled there. Around that time, we see the rise of another great civilization, the Phoenicians, which was another “kingdom” coming forth from Israel. Originating from the coast of Israel, the Phoenicians were a confederation of Israelite maritime traders. They gradually set up outposts, seaports, and colonies all across the Mediterranean, reaching as far west as Iberia (Spain) and as far north as Gaul (France), Albion (the British Isles), and Hibernia (Ireland).
Modern historians outright lie and say the Phoenicians were Canaanites, but they weren’t. They couldn’t have been. The Phoenicians only appeared after the conquest of Canaan, during which the Canaanites suffered heavy losses. The Phoenicians were Israelites from the northern coast of Israel, most notably from the seaport cities of Tyre and Sidon, both within the tribe of Asher’s territory. The name Phoenician comes from the unique purple dye from certain seashells that the traders specialized in. At the time, purple dye was rare and valuable. Phoenicians used this purple dye on their sails and banners and thus earned the name Phoenicians, which means purple people.
There are other reasons why the name Israelite was eclipsed by the appellation Phoenician. Most of Greek history (or at least that which survives) was written by Ionian Greeks from the line of Japeth (Adamic but not Israelite). Most of the Ionian Greek historians lived and wrote in Athens, their most populous and powerful city. These Ionian Athenians wrote history from their own perspective. Most likely, they lacked a thorough knowledge of the true Israelite roots of the Phoenicians. These Ionian records make up the history that comes down to us today, but the records are not complete. Regardless of the speculations of modern historians, the Phoenicians were Israelites and not Canaanites.
The City of Tyre was a stronghold of the Phoenicians. By the time King David ruled over all of Israel, the city had grown powerful enough to demand their own king and gain a certain amount of autonomy. The King of Tyre ruled his own territory but acknowledged David as his superior. The Phoenician colony of Carthage, the powerful city-state on the north coast of Africa, was said to have originated from Tyre. So we can see that Carthage as well as Thebes (from Cadmus, one of the leaders of the original migration from Egypt to Europe) were great cities originating from the Phoenicians. After the fall of the Kingdom of Israel and the Assyrian and Babylonian deportations, these Phoenician colonies, which by that time had spread all over the Medditerean and West Europe were cut off and would now be forced to fend for themselves. Carthage was the most prominent of these colonies and rose in power over the centuries. It is most notable for its rivalry and wars with the Romans. However, most of Europe, including all these Phoenician colonies and even Carthage would gradually come under Roman dominion, which resulted in the loss of their history and knowledge of their true origin.
The Dorian invasion into Greece
It’s helpful to remember that Greece was a collection of tribes with a common culture. The Dorians invaded Greece shortly after the Trojan War. They would become the third major tribe in Greece, after the Danaans and the Ionians. The Dorians primarily became the Lacedaemonians and Macedonians. The Lacedaemonians territory was in the southern part of Greece which most famously included the city Sparta and thus the Lacedaemonians are often called Spartans. The Macedonians were to the north and are best known, of course, for Alexander the Great who united Greece and conquered the Middle East.
Modern historians try to claim that the Dorians came from the north; however, that is completely mistaken and wrong. Homer describes the Dorians as invading from the sea, not northern territories. Furthermore, Homer says the Dorians inhabited the Island of Crete before they invaded Greece. The Dorians were Israelites who originated from the City of Dor in the territory of Manasseh. “Dorian” means “people of Dor” or “people from Dor.” Dor was a major seaport city along the southern coast of Israel. Another nearby seaport city was Joppa, in the territory of Dan. It is reasonable to imagine Israelites sailing from Dor to Greece on a conquest venture. The island of Crete served the Dorians as a place to gather strength and then launch a full-scale invasion of Greece.
Further historical proofs linking Dor to the Dorians are the many so-called Greek artifacts that have been found by archaeologists in and around the location of Dor in Palestine. Of course, that narrative gets the reality backward. These are not artifacts from Greece. These are ancient Israelite artifacts from Dor. The Dorian Israelites brought their artistic culture with them to Greece and continued to develop it there, but they also must have left some artifacts behind. Further evidence that the Dorians were Israelites is found in Josephus, in his record of a letter written by a Spartan (or Lacedemonian, who were also Dorian Greeks) king to Jerusalem about 160 B.C., which is found in Antiquities 12.4.10 (12:226-227):
“Areus, King of the Lacedemonians, To Onias, Sendeth Greeting. We have met with a certain writing, whereby we have discovered that both the Judaeans and the Lacedemonians are of one stock, and are derived from the kindred of Abraham. It is but just, therefore, that you, who are our brethren, should send to us about any of your concerns as you please. We will also do the same thing, and esteem your concerns as our own, and will look upon our concerns as in common with yours. Demotoles, who brings you this letter, will bring your answer back to us. This letter is foursquare; and the seal is an eagle, with a dragon in his claws.” Josephus records a reply from Jonathan the High Priest in Antiquities 13.5.8 (13:163-170), thus verifying the authenticity of King Areus’ letter.
The Dorians gave rise to the Spartans. The Spartans were described as fair and white, so obviously the Dorians must have been fair and white. The Dorians came from the Israelites so the Israelites must have been fair and white. It is the law of genetics that white can only come from white. Kind after kind is mentioned many times in the creation account in Genesis. Race is a genetic fact, not a social construct.
The Israelite Dorians and the earlier Israelite Danaans gradually overwhelmed the Ionian Greeks (Javan), the descendants of Japheth, who originally inhabited Greece. Japheth, a son of Noah, was a white Adamic man but not an Israelite. The Israelites were Adamics who came through Noah’s son Shem and his descendant Abraham. Yahweh chose to extend His covenant through Abraham. This phenomenon of the Israelite tribes subjugating, ruling over, and assimilating the Adamic tribes would continue all over Europe and the entire Adamic world. We will explain this in more depth in later Proofs.
Rome originating from the Trojans
The Romans followed the Greeks. In time, Rome became an empire that ruled the world, and it was under the Roman Empire that Yahshua (Jesus) Christ was born. The Romans originated from the Trojans. In other words, the Romans were also Israelites. Most people know about the Trojan War and the sacking of Troy by the Danaan Greeks (and the story of the Trojan Horse). What many people don’t know is that a remnant of Trojans survivors fled Greece and after a long, meandering voyage settled in Italy.
This remnant was led by Aeneas, a prince of Troy and cousin of the famous Hector of Troy. Aeneas and his men sailed around the Mediterranean, wandering for several years until they finally settled in Latium, Italy. Aeneas married the daughter of the King of Latium, and in time, Aeneas became king and founded a dynasty of kings. The fact that the Trojan remnant settled in Latium is the reason the later Roman language was called Latin. Centuries later, a descendent of Aeneas named Romulus founded the city of Rome.
As time passed, Rome began to conquer and absorb the surrounding city-states. The city of Rome’s power and influence grew and eventually, Rome became the Roman Republic (although technically it was already an empire already by this stage). Then came the famous Roman Empire ruled over by Emperors. Since the Trojans founded Rome and the Trojans came from Judah through Zerah, the Romans were also the descendants of Judah and thus were Israelites. The history of Aeneas, his journeys, the founding of Rome, and thus the descent of Romans from Trojans is confirmed by Strabo.
“…The wandering of Aeneas are a traditional fact…” (Strabo, Geography, 3.2.13)
We also find proof that the Romans were Israelites in the Bible. In Paul of Tarsus’ epistle to the Romans, he states that they (the Romans) once knew Yahweh (only the Israelites had known Yahweh) but that they had corrupted their belief in God and turned Him into a man, adding a whole pantheon of lesser gods and even beasts.
“Because knowing Yahweh, they thought of Him not as God, nor were they thankful; but they became foolish in their reasonings, and were darkened, their hearts void of understanding: alleging to be wise they became fools, and they changed the estimation of the incorruptible Yahweh into a resemblance of an image of corruptible man, and birds, and four-legged animals, and reptiles” Romans 1:21-24 CNT.
It’s crucial to note that according to Scripture, the only people who ever knew Yahweh in the first place were the Israelites. Of all the families or nations on the earth, Yahweh knew only the family of Israel, and only the family of Israel knew Yahweh. Paul was well aware of the fact that Yahweh has revealed Himself and His laws only to the Israelites. “He showeth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel. He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord!” Psalm 147:19, 20, KJV. Yahweh’s covenant was only ever with Israel, so for Paul to claim that the Romans once knew Yahweh shows that the Apostle understood Rome’s origin as dispersed and punished Israelites.
“You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities” Amos 3:2 KJV.
Interestingly and tellingly, the name of Jupiter, the chief Roman deity, combined two words: Jove and Pater. The meaning is “Father Jove” or “Jove the All-Father” or perhaps “Jove the Father God.” The letters J and V are both later additions to the English language, so the Romans spelled Jove with an “I” and an “au,” resulting in “Ioue,” a word with four vowels. In old Latin, Ioue was pronounced like Yahweh. ”Pater,” of course, means “father.” This name of the main Roman pagan god is a strong indication that the Romans carried with them into their dispersion and paganism the dim memory of Yahweh the Father God. Paul must have noticed these traces of the name of Israel’s God’s name buried deep within the Roman religious memory and imagination.
The rise of the Parthians
One more major civilization arising through the Israelite dispersion was the Parthians. So far, we’ve traced the migrations of various groups of Israelites into Europe, but not all the Israelites migrated elsewhere after their initial deportation into the Caucasus region. Some Israelites remained there and eventually dominated that entire area. We know them as the Parthians.
After deporting the Israelites to the Caucasus area, the Assyrians ruled the Middle East for over another century. The Assyrian policy was to invade, annex, then depopulate the annexed region of its native people, moving them elsewhere in the empire as they had done with the Israelites. No doubt this tactic of domination and deportation was aimed at preventing uprisings. However, the tyranny eventually backfired. Various tribes within the empire, notably the Scythians, Persians, and Babylonians, joined forces and attacked the Assyrian capital city of Nineveh. This led to the destruction of the Assyrian Empire.
After the fall of Assyria, large masses of Scythians had begun migrating into Europe (see Proof 1). This left a power vacuum that the Babylonians filled; they seized all the formerly Assyrian territory and created the Babylonian Empire. But in time, the Persians in an alliance with the Medes overthrew the Babylonians. Then Alexander the Great of Macedonia crushed the Persian Empire. Alexander resettled a lot of Greeks, especially Macedonians, in the Parthian lands. As we explained earlier, the Macedonians were Israelites. So the racial reality of Alexander’s empire and of the later Seleucid Empire was that they were Israelite empires ruling over Israelites and mixtures of other Adamic tribes, such as Assyrians, Persians, Babylonians, and Medes. After Alexander’s death, his four generals carved up the Macedonian Empire, which reached from northern Greece to as far east as India and as far south as Egypt. Each general took a chunk of territory and created his own empire and dynasty.
Originally the Parthian lands were part of the Macedonian Empire east of the Caspian Sea (roughly equivalent to modern Iran). General Seleucus, Alexander’s infantry general, gained the Parthian territory in the Middle East and the Far East. He gave his name to the Seleucid Empire.
But long before that happened, most of the Israelites had been deported to the Parthia region by the Assyrians. While some of these deported Israelites soon set out for other lands, others remained. No doubt, other Adamic peoples lived in those regions, notably the Medes. Historian Strabo tells us that during the Seleucid Empire period, the lands of Parthia was invaded and conquered by two tribes in particular, which he identifies as the Arsaces and Däae, and that both of these tribes were of the Scythian (or Israelite) stock.
So it was that at the onset of the Seleucid takeover, the Parthian lands and surrounding areas were largely populated with Israelites. Strabo explains that the most notable Israelite tribe, the Arsaces, were weak at first due to being continually at war. But they grew strong and conquered so much neighboring territory that they established themselves as lords of all the country inside the Euphrates.
According to Strabo, the tribes of Däae, Massagetae, and Sacae were also Scythians. These Däae, Massagetae, and Sacae were spread throughout the entire region. It did not take long for these Israelites in the lands of Parthia to become independent of Seleucid rule, whilst the other tribes and regions — some Assyrians, Medes, Babylonians, and a mixture of Scythians and non-Israelites — remained under Seleucid dominion. But the Israelites in Parthia not only threw off Seleucid rule, but they gradually conquered all of the surrounding regions. Since their conquests began from Parthia, their later empire was called the Parthian Empire. This name reflects the geographic fact that the Israelites waged their conquest from the land of their deportation, Parthia.
By the second century BC, the Parthians had risen up and pushed the Seleucid Empire aside. The Parthians gained hegemony over the entire Eastern world, establishing their own Parthian Empire which rivaled the previous Assyrian, Babylonian, and Persian Empires, except this time it was Israelites in power first under the Seleucids and then under the name Parthians.
Every Israelite king in Parthia was given the surname “Arsaces.” This name may be a combination of two Hebrew words: Ar and Saka. The word “Ar” means mountain, high point, and hilltop. “Saka” is the name the Persians called the Israelites. When put together, the two words may mean “highest of the Saka.” If you believe (as many do) that the word “Saka” comes from the name of the Patriarch Isaac, then “Arsaces” would mean the “highest of Isaac,” the title given to the man who ruled over the Israelites (although this linking of Saka with Isaac is speculation rather than proven historical fact).
It should be noted that when the Israelite kings ruled over the region, the Parthians were known as the Arsaces, and the Parthian Empire was called the Arsaces (or Arsacid) Empire. As we’ve already noted, “Saka/Sacae” sometimes with the addition of “Suna” was the name the Persians originally gave to the Israelites. That is (or is highly probable) where the name Saxons (Sacae-Suna) comes from. Although, again, this is much-debated speculation. So the alternative names for Parthia — Arsaces along with Saka/Sacae-Suna — may well come from the same origins as does the name Saxons. This Arsaces name shows us linguistically that these people are the same as the Germanic Saxon/Scythian tribes who had migrated to Europe.
The Parthian Empire lasted about four hundred years. They were most notable for constant back-and-forth wars with the Romans. At various times, the Parthians were involved in the affairs of Judea and Syria. The Romans had conquered both those territories shortly before the birth of Christ. Because the Parthians had occasionally been involved favorably with Judea, the historian Josephus (born shortly after Christ) wanted his books to spread to the “Upper Barbarians” throughout the Parthian Empire. Josephus knew that the Parthians were Israelites. In the preface to his book Wars of the Judeans, he states that he wanted to give a balanced account of the wars, not a biased Roman perspective. No doubt he hoped that his histories would influence the Israelites (Parthians) to the north to assist the Judeans in overthrowing the Romans. But that alliance did not happen. Also, Josephus was ignorant of the fact the Romans were also Israelites.
“… and while those that were there present have given false accounts of things, and this either out of a humor of flattery to the Romans, or of hatred towards the Judeans; and while their writings contain sometimes accusations, and sometimes encomiums, but nowhere the accurate truth of the facts; I have proposed to myself, for the sake of such as live under the government of the Romans, to translate those books into the Greek tongue, which I formerly composed in the language of our country, and sent to the Upper Barbarians… “
Josephus describes the tribes of Israel as an immense multitude beyond counting who lived beyond the Euphrates River. This area beyond the Euphrates was essentially the region of the Parthian Empire. The people within the Parthian Empire must have been an innumerable multitude of Israelites. If they were not, then what the hell is Josephus talking about?
“So he (Ezra) read the epistle at Babylon to those Judeans that were there; but he kept the epistle itself, and sent a copy of it to all those of his own nation that were in Media; and when these Judeans had understood what piety the king had towards God, and what kindness he had for Ezra, they were all greatly pleased; nay, many of them took their effects with them, and came to Babylon, as very desirous of going down to Jerusalem; but then the entire body of the people of Israel remained in that country; wherefore there are but two tribes in Asia and Europe subject to the Romans, while the ten tribes are beyond the Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude, and not to be estimated by numbers” (Josephus, Antiquities, 11.5.2).
Josephus called the immense multitude “the ten tribes.” This is unfortunate because, in reality, all twelve tribes were present in the multitude beyond the Euphrates. This ten-tribes error has persisted to this day, especially amongst “British Israel” people, and it needs to be corrected. Even the Apostle James speaks of “… the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad …” James 1:1. When the Assyrians deported Israelites from Judea, they also deported Israelites from the villages, towns, and cities around Jerusalem. But they failed to conquer Jerusalem and deport its people, who were mainly the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Nevertheless, the Assyrians deported people from all twelve tribes who lived outside of Jerusalem. Because Jerusalem was populated largely by Judah and Benjamin, it was an easy mistake to think that only ten tribes had been deported. This error has led to the belief that only ten tribes went to Europe; this is wrong because all twelve tribes were deported except for Jerusalem (at least at that time). With those facts in mind, perhaps a more accurate rendition of Josephus’ words would have been: “There are but a small remnant of two tribes left in Judea, whilst there are twelve tribes of Israel spread throughout Parthia, Asia, and Europe. They are an immense multitude and not to be estimated in numbers.”
After the tragedy of the Assyrian deportation, the Israelites living in Jerusalem began to spread out from Jerusalem and repopulate the surrounding areas. Then about one hundred years after the Assyrian deportations, the Babylonians invaded, conquered, and deported everyone, including the people in Jerusalem. Thus what was left of Judah and Benjamin under the Assyrians were deported under the Babylonians. When a remnant of Israel returned under King Cyrus to rebuild the temple, that number was barely over 40,000.
Europe by the Time of Christ
Once we know about the early migrations of the Israelites and grasp the wide scope of their travels, we can more clearly see the big picture: the whole Adamic world had become an Israelite world. This happened as the early Israelites migrated to Greece; later the Phoenicians colonized the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea and the West of Europe; the Trojan/Romans gradually expanded over all of Italy and then gained control over most of Europe; the Germanic tribes migrated and dominated the North/East of Europe; and finally, the Parthians rose to rule all the Middle East. Truly Yahweh’s promises to Abraham have been fulfilled.
All the former Adamic nations had been transformed into Israelite nations. Just because Yahweh had given the land of Canaan to Israel did not mean that Israel was confined to the Promised Land forever. So even before Moses’ Israelites entered Canaan, other Israelites were already beginning to fan out across the Adamic world. In time, Israel moved to the north and south, east and west, and eventually, the only nations remaining were Israelite nations. Slavs were white Adamic people but not Israelites. While these white Adamics are still amongst us, their nations tended to be short-lived. All white nations now are Israelite nations.
By the time of Christ, Europe was for the most part Israelite. An Israelite world was the perfect time and place for Yahshua Christ’s ministry and for his Gospel to be preached and spread to His people. Since the white Adamic world had been replaced with His chosen people, the Israelites, they would all naturally accept Christianity and naturally transform into Christian nations, bringing any remaining Adamics with them.
Christianized Europe — the seed of Jacob — then colonized the world, creating new civilized white Christian countries. From Europe came all the other white nations and countries of the world, such as the United States of America; Canada; Australia; New Zealand; and South Africa. This historical arc fulfills the prophecy that Jacob’s seed would spread to every corner of the earth. So it was prophesied and so it has happened.
