Are the Celto-Saxon people the true Israelites?  This is the third and final post that will deal with this question at hand.  One may ask, Why are you even dealing with this?  Simple.  Many torah seeking believers in Yahusha either believe this teaching, or some variation thereof, and it is blinding their eyes to the scriptural truth of the matter.  Those who love and make a lie will not enter the kingdom of Yahuah, and that is why all of us need to make sure that we are believing and promote only truth.

Here is the third set of  aspects that are espoused by those who believe and promote this teaching:

5 SPIRITUAL ASPECTS

  1. Israel was to have a new religion and be saved by Yahweh. (Jeremiah 31:7,31-37)
  2. Israel was to carry the gospel to all the world. (Isaiah 49:3-6)
  3. Israel was to be the only nation given God’s Law. (Psalm 147:19-20)
  4. Israel was to be blind for the most part to her identity. (Isaiah 42:16-19)
  5. Israel was to be called by a new name. (Isaiah 62:1-2)

OUR RESPONSE:

(1)  Israel was to have a “new religion”?

“See, the days are coming,” declares Yahuah, “when I will make a new Covenant with the house of Yisrael, and with the house of Yahudah, not like the Covenant I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Mitsrayim, My Covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,” declares Yahuah.  “For this is the Covenant I shall make with the house of Yisrael after those days, declares Yahuah:  I shall put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts.  And I shall be their Alohym, and they shall be My people.  And no longer shall they teach, each one his neighbor, and each one his brother, saying, ‘Know Yahuah,’ for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them,” declares Yahuah.  “For I shall forgive their wickedness, and remember their sin no more.”  (Jer. 31:31-34)

A “new” covenant, yes, but a “new religion”?  Isn’t that what Christianity has erroneously taught us all these years?  In this “new” covenant made with the “house of Yisrael” and the “house of Yahudah”, the Torah will still reign supreme ( Ezek. 11:17-21; 36:24-27 ).  When have the Celto-Saxon nations, or any nations of men over the past 2000 years, ever been Torah observant?  So, no, Yisrael is not to have a “new religion”, but rather a renewed relationship with Yahuah wherein they will still keep the Torah.

(2)  Israel was to carry “the gospel” to all the world?

“And He says, ‘Shall it be trivial for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Ya’acob, and to bring back the preserved ones of Yisrael?  And I shall give You as a light to the gentiles/nations, to be My deliverance to the ends of the earth!'”  ( Isa. 49:6 )

We already saw that when the 12 tribes of Yisrael are restored, they will walk after the Torah.  As far as Messiah Yahusha and those  who follow Him being a “light to the nations”, consider this:

“And many people shall come and say, ‘Come, and let us go up to the mountain of Yahuah, to the House of the Alohym of Ya’aqob, and let Him teach us His Ways, and let us walk in His paths, for out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah, and the Word of Yahuah from Yerushalayim.'” ( Isa. 2:3 )

“Thus said Yahuah of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all languages of the nations take hold, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yahudi, saying, ‘Let us go with you, for we have heard that Alohym is with you.'” ( Zech. 8:23 )

“And the gentiles/nations shall come to your light, and sovereigns to the brightness of your rising.” ( Isa. 60:3 )

What is this “light” that the nations will be brought to?  While we know WHO the “light” is, which is Messiah Yahusha, the living Word of Yahuah, what “light” are the nations going to be taught by the children of Yisrael to walk in?  Is it not the Torah, the written Word of Yahuah?

Seeing that the nations will be brought to the light of the Torah through Messiah Yahusha, what about this “gospel” that has been carried all over the world?  Has it brought the nations into the light of the Torah through Messiah Yahusha, or has is led the nations away from the light of the Torah through “Jesus Christ”?  The hard truth of the matter is that the “gospel” propagated throughout the world for many centuries by the European nations was and is a paganized, Catholic/Protestant perversion of scriptural truth.  While the Most High has used the Europeans to bring the world the bible by way of the printing press ( and for that we are thankful ), in no way, shape, or form have they  fulfilled Isa. 49:3-6.

(3)  Israel is the only nation that was given the Torah of the Most High.

We agree, but how does this prove the Celto-Saxon Israelite theory?  As stated before, the European nations have not brought the nations of the world into the light of the Torah through Messiah Yahusha, but rather they have led the nations away from the light of the Torah through “Jesus Christ.”

(4)  Israel was to be blind, for the most part, to her identity.

We agree, but it also needs to be emphasized that this loss of identity was to be part of the curse placed upon Yisrael for their disobedience to the Torah:

“I said, ‘I should blow them away, I should make the remembrance of them to cease from among men.'”  ( Deut. 32:26 )

What we disagree on is the premise that this loss of identity happened to the European people who have not and are not living out the curses of the Torah.  We cannot cherry-pick a curse here and a curse there to fit our theory because the Most High said:

“And ALL THESE CURSES shall come upon you, and they shall pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of Yahuah your Alohym, to guard His Commands and His Laws which He commanded you.  And they shall be upon you for a sign and a wonder, and on your seed, forever.” ( Deut. 28:45, 46 )

Are all the curses of Deut. 28 upon the European people perpetually, as a sign and a wonder?  Of course not.  They have been the oppressors, not the oppressed.  They have been the captors, not the captives.  Especially over the past 500 years, they have been the primary instrument of Yahuah to execute the curses upon the true children of Yisrael.

(5)  Israel was to be called by a new name.

“And the nations shall see your righteousness, and all sovereigns your esteem.  And you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of Yahuah designates” ( Isa. 62:2 )

We agree, but keep in mind that this people who will be called by a new name will show forth the righteousness and esteem of Yahuah to the nations.  Spreading paganism ( Christmas, Easter, crosses, steeples/sun pillars, etc. ) and the traditions of men ( Law vs. Grace, replacement theology, dispensationalism, etc. ) is a far cry from showing forth righteousness to the nations.  When the true children of Yisrael show forth the true righteousness and esteem of Yahuah to the nations, this will be the response:

“And you shall guard and do them, for this is your wisdom and your understanding before the eyes of the peoples who hear all these Laws, and they shall say, ‘Only a wise, and understanding people is this great nation!’  For what great nation is there which has Alohym so near to it, as Yahuah our Alohym is to us, whenever we call on Him?  And what great nation is there that has such Laws and righteous Right-Rulings like all this Torah which I put before you this day?”
( Deut. 4:6-8 )

Has this happened at any time over the past 2000 years?  Of course not.  This will be fulfilled in the true children of Yisrael after the captivity is turned and the restoration of all things is accomplished.

CONCLUSION…

Again, I will say that we at Israelites For The Kingdom have no “racial” axe to grind in this matter.  We do believe, however, that much damage has been done throughout the centuries because of the distortion and misrepresentation of the scriptural facts.  What better vehicle is there to promote the deeply rooted ideology of white superiority/non-white inferiority than religion?  And, that is exactly what has happened over the centuries.  Judeo-Christianity is primarily responsible for hiding the true identity of children of Yisrael.

For centuries, the characters of the scriptures have been portrayed as “white” people, whereas the true children of Yisrael have been portrayed as sub-human.  This is all in fulfillment of the words of our forefather Noach as he told us that “Alohym shall deceive/entice* Yapheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem…” ( Gen. 9:27; * ‘enlarge’ in the KJV is a mistranslation; see H6601 in Strong’s and compare it to other places in scripture where ‘deceive’, or ‘entice’ are used ).

Truthfully speaking, the Celto-Saxon people, and the European people in general are the sons of Yapheth.  They are not the sons of Shem, although the scriptures foretell that they would “dwell in the tents of Shem”.  This has a physical and a spiritual meaning.  Physically, the people who are currently occupying the heart of the promised land are, for the most part, eastern Europeans, and thus the sons of Yapheth.  Spiritually speaking, these same people have not only taken over Shem’s land, but also his spiritual identity as the children of Yisrael, or more specifically, the children of Yahudah.  Many western Europeans have done the same with the identity of the northern 10 tribes.

Both eastern and western Europeans have fulfilled Gen. 9:27, however, the good thing is that  it doesn’t have to be that way.  Europeans and all nations of men can become a part of the true House of Yisrael and House of Yahudah through Messiah Yahusha, without usurping anyone’s identity as their forefathers did.  If they will confess the sins of their forefathers who have “inherited lies” (Jer. 16:19), and receive the scriptural truth of the matter, then the Most High will receive them.  We understand that this is a hard saying, however, if any of us expect to be saved, then we must be like Dawid and “hate EVERY false way” ( Ps. 119:104, 128 ).  Selah.
