The Anglo-Israel Truth!

Distinguishing Marks of Israel:

The Jewish Chronicle for May 2nd, 1879, said, “The fate of the Lost Ten Tribes is a mystery which has a peculiar fascination for some minds… the Scriptures speak of a future restoration of Israel… The problem, then, is reduced to the simplest form. The Ten Tribes are certainly in existence. All that has to be done is to discover which people represent them.” [The italics are ours.]

Particular attention is drawn to the following facts concerning present latter day Israel:

  • The scattered Israelites would be gathered into a place of safety (Jer. 31:10; 2 Sam. 7:10); evidently islands and coastlands (Isa. 41:1; 24:14-15), situated northwest from Palestine (Jer. 3:18; Hos. 11:10).

  • Their land would become too small, and they would spread out to the very ends of the earth (Isa. 49:20; 54:3; Deut. 33:17).

  • They had to inherit and colonize the waste parts of the world (Isa. 35:1; 49:8).

  • They would grow into a “company of nations” (Gen. 35:11; 48:19), “many nations” (Gen. 17:5-6)

  • They would be a missionary people, taking the gospel “Word of the Lord” to the ends of the earth (Isa. 49:6).

  • They would have a royal monarchy, with kings and queens (Gen. 17:6).

  • They would be a great and warlike people (Micah 5:8; Jer. 31:7; 51:20).

  • They had to possess the “Gate of their enemies” (Gen. 22:17).

  • They would rule over many nations and be ruled over by none (Deut. 15:6).

  • They had to be a blessing to all the families of mankind (Gen. 28:14; Isa. 58:6-7; Micah 5:7).

  • Their territory would be distinguished for mineral and agricultural wealth (Deut. 33:13-16).

  • This is but a small portion of the Biblical evidence! This website has teaching articles regarding the people of Israel and the Biblical covenants.

    Queen Elisabeth


    Some told me years ago, that in 1952-53 when the now queen of england was coronated. that she was crowned "the queen of Israel." I was wondering if this is true. And where can i find that statement. -LHR

    The book, "The Coronation Stone," by Ellen M. Rogers (Mrs. G. Albert Rogers), published in numerous editions between 1881 and the 1930's, states on page xx of the preface: "Queen Victoria, whose illustrious reign of unexampled duration was prosperous beyond any that preceded it, gloried in her descent from King David, as in virtue of the Covenant recorded in Jeremiah xxxiii. 17, 20, 21, she sat upon 'the throne of the House of Israel'. She found a kingdom, and she left an Empire, for God is fulfilling to us His promise that Abraham should be heir of the world (Rom. iv. 13)."

    Israelite Parallels to the British Coronation Ceremony

    "...the original Anglo-Saxon service was drawn up by St. Columba, who was himself a royal prince, and the Coronation service compiled by him is an Israel one from start to finish...After taking the Oath the King is seated in King Edward the Confessor's Chair, which has the Lia Fail, or Stone of Destiny, under the seat. He is anointed with holy oil on the crown of the head, on the breast, and on the palms of both hands. Thus, not only is he consecrated as King of the Realm, but this ceremony constitutes him as a High Priest of the Church of God. After being presented with spurs, and girt with a Sword taken from off the Altar, the King proceeds to ungird the Sword and returns it to the Altar, where it is redeemed by a Peer, who, after having offered a price for it, draws it out of the scabbard, and it is carried naked before His Majesty during the rest of the solemnity.

    Having donned the Imperial Mantle, the Orb with the Cross is delivered into his hand with the prayer: "When you see the Orb set under the Cross remember that the whole world is subject to the Power and Empire of Christ, Our Redeemer."

    Then a ring is set on the fourth finger of His majesty's right hand. Immediately after, a Glove is put on and the Archbishop delivers the Sceptre with the Cross into the King's right hand. This is a golden rod set with precious stones, surmounted by amethysts crowned with a cross.

    The Archbishop says in the Anglo-Saxon service: "Take the illustrious Sceptre of the Royal Power, the rod of thy Dominion, the rod of justice, by which thou mayest govern thyself well and the Holy Church and Christian people committed by the Lord to thee...and that they may hold their right way, direct them with thine aid, so that from the temporal kingdom thou mayest attain to that which is eternal by His aid Whose endless dominion will remain through every age."

    Although the Duke of Norfolk has the hereditary privilege of supporting the King's arm as he holds the Royal sceptre of Judah, from which the House of David originates, no one has the right to support the left arm of the King as he holds the Sceptre with the Dove, which only the priests of the Lord may touch.

    This is the sign of power of the Prophet and Priest of God, and is known as the Verge, or "Rod." It is a golden sceptre set with precious stones, surmounted by a Jerusalem Cross, and a Dove with outstretched wings.

    In the words of the Anglo-Saxon service the Archbishop says: "Take the Rod of justice and equity by which thou mayest understand how to soothe the pious and terrify the bad, teach the way to the erring; stretch out thine hand to the faltering; abase the proud, exalt the humble; that Christ our Lord may open to thee the door, Who says of Himself, 'I am the Door, if any enter through Me, he shall be saved.' And He Who is the Key of David, and the Sceptre of the House of Israel...may He be the Helper...that in all things thou mayest deserve to follow Him of Whom David sang, 'Thy seat, O God, endureth for ever, the sceptre of Thy Kingdom is a right sceptre.'

    Our King is thus acknowledged to be the Holder of the Sceptre of David "Till He come Whose right it is," and Jeremiah endorses Ezekiel: "For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel." (Jer. 33:17)

    The Fenton version of Scripture translated direct from the Hebrew gives us fuller vision of a coronation yet to be. Although Mr. Fenton translates "Sceptre" from the Hebrew word "tsemach," which the Authorized Version translates "Branch," the idea of the Rod or Verge remains the same, and it is helpful to have another translation for this era.

    "Be assured the days come," says the Everliving, "when I will accomplish this, which I have promised to the House of Israel and the House of Judah. In those days and at that period I will cause a perfect Sceptre to rise up, and he will execute justice and right in the land. In those days Judah will be safe and Israel rest secure, and this is what she will call Him, Our Righteous Lord." (Jer. 33:14-16)

    The King is then crowned and the people shout "God save the King." [See below: 1 Sam. 10:24; 2 Sam. 16:16; 1 Ki. 1:25, 34, 39; 2 Ki. 11:12; 2 Chron. 23:11]

    The final act of grace is the presentation to the King of the Holy Bible, taken off the Altar and given into his hands with the words: "We present you with this Book, the most valuable thing that this world affords. Here is Wisdom; this is the Royal Law; these are the lively Oracles of God."

    The Benediction that follows is one most truly based on Israel's hope and confidence in the Lord. It ends with: "The Lord give you a fruitful Country and healthful Seasons; victorious Fleets and Armies, and a quiet Empire; a faithful Senate, wise and upright Counselors and Magistrates, a loyal Nobility, and a dutiful Gentry; a pious and learned and useful Clergy; an honest, industrious and obedient Commonality. Amen."

    How truly wonderful if the Coronation of our King fulfils the prophecy of Jeremiah where a "Perfect Sceptre" is acclaimed and millions of the King's subjects unite as one in homage to "Our Righteous Lord."

    "The days also shall come," says the Everliving, "when I will raise for David a righteous offshoot, and royal king, who will govern and do justice and right in the land. In his days Judah will e safe and Israsel rest in safety, and his name shall be called 'Our Righteous Lord'."

    "The times shall come," says the Everliving, "when they shall no more say 'by the life of the Everliving Who brought Israel up from the land of the Mitzeraim', but 'by the life of the Everliving Who brought Israel up and conducted the race of the House of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands where He had driven them, and restored them to their own soil.'" (Jeremiah 23:5-9, Fenton Version) - The National Message, 3-14-1936, p.168

    The Phrase "God Save the King" in Scripture

    And Samuel said to all the people, See ye him whom the LORD hath chosen, that there is none like him among all the people? And all the people shouted, and said, God save the king. (1Sa 10:24)


    And it came to pass, when Hushai the Archite, David's friend, was come unto Absalom, that Hushai said unto Absalom, God save the king, God save the king. (2Sa 16:16)


    For he is gone down this day, and hath slain oxen and fat cattle and sheep in abundance, and hath called all the king's sons, and the captains of the host, and Abiathar the priest; and, behold, they eat and drink before him, and say, God save king Adonijah. (1Ki 1:25)


    And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and blow ye with the trumpet, and say, God save king Solomon. (1Ki 1:34)


    And Zadok the priest took an horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon. And they blew the trumpet; and all the people said, God save king Solomon. (1Ki 1:39)


    And he brought forth the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king. (2Ki 11:12)


    Then they brought out the king's son, and put upon him the crown, and gave him the testimony, and made him king. And Jehoiada and his sons anointed him, and said, God save the king. (2Ch 23:11)



    The Iberians and Hebrews


    In my reading, I came across a reference to the Iberians. What connection is there between Heber (Hebrew) and Iberian?

    The root of Heber and Iberian is similar, and it seems that the name Iberia was first applied by Aristosthenes (who is quoted by Sir Isaac Newton), as an area of the Caucasus region that was colonized by Hebrews immediately after the captivity of Israel. This same district was also called Albania. These two names (Iberia, Albania) travelled westwards to Greece and Spain respectively. Both names are also found in the British Islands, for we know that England is termed Albion, and ethnologists have commented on the early Briton tribe of Iberians, whom some people associated with the Aquitani (referred to by Caesar). The westward movement of the name Iberian is evidence of the westward movement of the early Hebrew seafarers. See W.H. Bennett’s book, “The Story of Celto-Saxon Israel” and Steven M. Collins’ book, “Israel’s Lost Empires” for more information.
