PROTECTION WHEN WE NEED IT


by Brooks Alden



"But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were
made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob... Even by
the God of thy father, who shall help thee .... " (Genesis 49:
24,25).


     Over the past few months we have seen cracks in the wall of
the Babylonian system as our financial system has been under
heavy pressure, led by falling equity markets, the reality of
crashing real estate values, a monstrous burden placed upon the
people to save unworthy financial institutions and a worldwide
cry from leaders right across the planet to usher in a new
financial apparatus that you can bet will be nothing more than
another nail in the coffin being fashioned for True Israel. It's
difficult not to feel fear when our hard-earned wealth is being
confiscated right before our eyes and our freedoms are being
eroded one after another. And what makes it more difficult today
is that most of our brothers and sisters across the Israel
nations seem to want to struggle along without Christ as their
centerpiece and without any real knowledge of God's Word or Plan.
They know nothing or care very little about His promises of
protection and scoff of stories about how God intervened in
days gone by. You know, as a whole we are a pretty unworthy
generation and what is befalling us is exactly what we probably
deserve. Still, God made a promise to protect us and even though
we must, as Ezekiel relates in 7:8, make up for all our
abominations, He will be there at the appointed time.

     You see, in addition to conferring the awesome
responsibilities of the Birthright and the wonderful blessings
upon the tribe of Joseph, God offered the descendants of Joseph
His personal protection. Prior to this blessing, God had inspired
Jacob to select the sons of Joseph as the beneficiaries of the
name "Israel" (Genesis 49: 16) and said of them that they would
form a "great Nation" and a "company of nations.  Son Manasseh
was to form that great nation and today, the United States of
America is the greatest nation ever formed. Ephraim was to form
the company of nations and certainly, the Commonwealth of Nations
has impacted the world this past few centuries as no other
nation.
     So, the sons of Joseph, the Anglo-Saxon peoples, and
presumably - those brethren from other tribes who joined them are
in good hands. There are so many precedents to prove this
statement but let's look at just a few.

     It's interesting to reflect upon these words of the late
King George VI, delivered to his people on a national broadcast
on June 6th, 1944. It is important to know that the king had
called for a day of prayer seeking protection for the allied
forces in preparation of the Normandy landing of the Second World
War. He had said, "Four years ago our nation and Empire stood
alone against an overwhelming enemy, with our backs to the wall.
Tested as never before in our history, in God's providence we
survived that test, the spirit of the people, resolute,
dedicated, burned like a bright flame, lit surely from those
unseen fires which nothing can quench. Now once more a supreme
test has to be faced. This time the challenge is not to fight to
survive but to fight to win the final victory to the good cause.
That we may be worthily matched with this new summons of destiny,
I desire solemnly to call my people to prayer and dedication." 

     Of course, as history shows, although the invasion of
Normandy was the most perilous undertaking of the Second World
War, it was only made possible by a totally unexpected break in
the weather. The Germans were caught flatfooted because their
meteorologists were predicting a continuance of bad weather. It
is a wonderful example of the power of prayer and the ensuing
protection from the Lord God Almighty.

     Still, it was the king's next remarks in his June 6th, 1944
address to which we should pay particular attention: "We are not
unmindful of our own shortcomings, past and present. We shall ask
not that God may do our will, but that we may be enabled to do
the will of God; and we dare to believe that God has used our
nation and Empire as an instrument for fulfilling His high
purpose." 

     An instrument for fulfilling His high purpose! Do you
suppose that King George was reflecting on the Covenant that God
had made with Abraham? And particularly to that mandate where
Abraham was selected to be a blessing to all nations of the
world, a mandate which the Anglo-Saxons went a long way to
fulfilling, without even knowing who they are. Was the king
referring to the company of nations Jacob had bestowed upon
Ephraim? Do you think that King George VI knew that he was an
Israelite? Most certainly he did! In a James Stuart article in
the May/June, 1996 issue of "Wake Up", Mr.Stuart referred to a
facsimile of a letter that appeared in "The Independent" on April
6th, 1996, a letter written by George VI in 1922, when he was
Albert, the Duke of York. In it, George VI wrote, "I am sure the
British Israelite business is true. I have read a lot about it
lately and everything no matter how large or small points to our
being 'the chosen race.'" So the king knew who he was and as
learned as he was reported to be, he knew full well that God
would answer the prayers of His People. George VI was an
extremely courageous man. During the terrible war, he remained in
the dangerous areas of London as an example to his people. But he
had such great faith in God's Holy Word that he must have felt
the mighty hands of God guiding him and knowing the Israel Truth
must have inspired him. Yet, for a notable individual he was a
rarity because so few notables do grasp the truth. I have often
pondered why readers of this magazine know full well that the
Israelites of the Bible are the Anglo Saxon, Celtic, Scandinavian
and kindred peoples, yet, someone like Winston Churchill, who was
a great student of history and the prolific writer of "The
History of the Engish Speaking Peoples" appeared to have no clue
whatsoever that he was an Israelite. He certainly sensed
something, we can say this. I mean, he was at the helm of
government during two early Second World War examples of the
Mighty Hand of God providing protection to the Tribe of Joseph.

     For instance, he held sway when the German forces were
pounding his trapped forces at Dunkirk in 1940, pinned down along
the rugged seashore amidst the cold, the rain and the German fire
power. Remember, the cold, cloudy weather had shown no sign of
letting up so rescuers could get through and it seemed that death
or incarceration were the only two options for hundreds of
thousands of valiant soldiers. It was prayer that brought our
Protector to our rescue, as suddenly, a miracle took place. Nine
days of calm weather came upon the English Channel, a calm
unprecedented in the Channel's history, and some 338,000 soldiers
were rescued as military and small ships and boats made their way
back and forth across the English Channel. Then too, Churchill
was also there for the Battle of Britain and witnessed as the
Royal Air Force turned back the Germans after being vastly
outnumbered, valiant action that most certainly prevented an
invasion of the island kingdom. Later, Churchill, the well-read
historian and war leader who experienced the unseen power,
uttered: "I have a feeling sometimes that some Guiding Hand has
interfered, I have a feeling that we have a Guardian because we
have a great Cause, and we shall have that Guardian so long as we
serve that Cause faithfully." 

     You can almost sense Churchill's booming voice as he
continue,, "And what a Cause it is!"

     Of course, for us, the answer to the afore-mentioned 
question is  simple. For as great a man as Churchill was, the
blindness in part spoken of by the Apostle Paul (Romans 11: 25)
was not lifted from him. He was one of the vast majority of
Israelites referred to in Isaiah 44: 18, "They have not known nor
understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see;
and their hearts, that they cannot understand." This is why it
seems so exasperating for those who know their identity to get
others to understand. Yet, someday they will, but only when God
so deems.

     For those of us blessed through having the blindness
lifted, we can but plant the seed in others. It is a
responsibility we must not shirk, regardless of the frustration.
And we do have the confidence that no matter how sorrowful this
world becomes, and it is has become very much so these past two
decades, that the Mighty Hands of God will see us through.


     Look what He did in Elizabethan times! It was 1588 and Spain
had finally decided to descend upon Britain with the might of her
military. Dispatching an overwhelming force of some 130 heavily
armed ships and more than 30,000 soldiers, the Spanish Armada set
off for battle. Great leader as she was, Elizabeth I rushed to
the anticipated landing site of the enemy. And inspired her
troops with her stirring speech:

"...I have come amongst you, as you see, resolved, in the midst
and heat of the battle, to live and die amongst you all, and for
my people, my honour and my blood, even in the dust..." 

     England's great generals, John Hawkins, Sir Francis Drake
and Lord Howard, provided superior leadership and did much to
rout the enemy. Yet, history has shown that it was the promised
mighty hands of the Lord God Almighty who came to the aid of His
Israel People by invoking weather conditions that crippled the
Spanish forces, sent many of their larger vessels to the deep and
sent the rest limping back to a Spain that would never again pose
such a threat. A medal struck to commemorate the war said it all:

"Affidavit Deus et dissipantur", meaning, "God blew and they were
scattered." 

     The gratitude toward God Almighty reached a peak in the few
years after the battle. Indeed, religious emotion ran through the
land as British Israel paid homage to the source of their
greatness. It was a time of such triumph and pride for the
entire English nation that it inspired Shakespeare to later write
his immortal words:

"Come the three corners of the world in arms, And we shall shock
them, Nought shall make us rue, If England to itself do rest but
true" (The Play "King John"). 

     Oh, but if only this national awareness was rekindled today!
Many more examples of God's protection of Ephraim Britain have
been chronicled but now, what of Manasseh America?

     Of course, the great American war leader and future
president, Dwight D. Eisenhower, was quick to point out God's
participation when he said of the 1944 D-Day invasion, "If there
were nothing else in my life to prove the existence of an
Almighty and Merciful God, the events of those next twenty four
hours of the invasion did it." Still, there is nothing in
Eisenhower's life to indicate he had any inkling that it was   
the Mighty Hands of God protecting the Birthright tribe.

     President Harry S. Truman came even closer to the mark,
when, in 1951, he made these comments in a speech, "I do not
think that anyone can study the history of this nation of ours
without becoming convinced that Divine providence has played a
great part in it. I have the feeling that God has created us and
brought us to our present position of power and strength for some
great purpose..... " 

     Although he correctly alluded to America's great destiny,
Truman too was seemingly not aware of his identity. In fact, as
an aside, not many great men of history were aware. It seems
the lifting of the blindness was reserved primarily for
individuals like the majority of our readers. As the Apostle Paul
said, "For ye see your calling, brethern, how that not many wise
men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called"
(1 Corinthians 1: 26). As the Amplified version points out in
verse 27, "No, for God selected - deliberately chose - what in
the world is foolish to put the wise to shame, and what the world
calls weak to put the strong to shame." Simply put, "follow God
or follow the world." 

....Today, the great nations formed by the descendants of the
tribe of Joseph are in dire straits. It is the time of Jacob's
trouble. (NO not yet, that time is yet ahead of us, as it will be
the greatest time of trouble EVER on this earth - we are FAR from
having that trouble at present, though troubles we have - Keith
Hunt).

     Whether one lives in the U.S.A., Great Britain, Australia,
South Africa, New Zealand or Canada, it's difficult not to sense
the punishment from Almighty God for our behaviour and fall from
His Law. Sadly, we are reaping the whirlwind of the curses of
Deuteronomy 28 because we have turned our backs on Him and have
permitted other gods to rule our lives, including the god of
materialism. Now we are facing an increased control of almost
every aspect of our lives and the enemies of the Lord Jesus
Christ are taking every opportunity to blaspheme His Glorious
Name. The great falling away has reached its zenith and
comparatively few are the Christians today who respect what we
were and what got us there in the first place. Why the Lord God
chose to enlighten those that he did is probably a mystery to
each and every one of us. Still, He did and it has enabled us to
clearly see the workings going on today in an attempt to
frustrate His Kingdom Plan. Of course, those involved will fail
and will ultimately pay for their wickedness. Still, we believers
must feel a little like the soldier on the beach at Dunkirk, we
have our backs to the wall and the blanket of ungodliness which
covers most of our world is akin to the cold, dark and hopeless
atmosphere at Dunkirk. But, we must take heart. For just as the
sun unexpectedly shone and calm prevailed to rescue the hundreds
of thousands of soldiers, the atmosphere will change for today's
world. For the Mighty Hands of Almighty God will one day reach
out again as the Lord Jesus Christ intervenes. Make no mistake
about it, Israel will awaken.

     Of this we are sure because the fourteenth chapter of Hosea
tells us so. 

" 0 Israel, return unto the Lord thy God; for thou hast
fallen by thine iniquity. Take with you words, and turn to the
Lord, say unto him, Take away all iniquity, and receive us
graciously. " The Lord will say, "I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely. - for mine anger is turned away from
him. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily,
and cast forth his roots as Lebanon. They that dwell under his
shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as
the vine. Ephraim shall say, What have I to do with idols? I have
heard him, and observed him: I am like a green fir tree. From me
is thy fruit found; Whoever is wise, he shall understand these
things? Whoever is prudent, he shall know them? for the ways of
the Lord are right, and the just shall walk in them; but the
transgressors shall fail therein."
