Who are the United States and Great Britain, and the English-speaking peoples, in Biblical prophecy?
What difference does it make?
The vast majority of people think that our English stock is basically “Gentile,” and we are just “one of the nations.” But is this true? The Jewish historian of the first century, Flavius Josephus, in his Antiquities of the Jews, wrote that during the time of Ezra, about 457 B.C. – when the king of Persia permitted the Jews to return to Jerusalem – many of them did. But, he relates, “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 EUPHRATES till NOW, and are an IMMENSE MULTITUDE, and not to be estimated by numbers” (Josephus, Ant., XI, 5, 2). What happened to this “immense multitude” of people who were still beyond the Euphrates River in 70 A.D., the time when Josephus lived? Where did they go? In the book of II Esdras, in the Apocrypha, we read: “These are the ten tribes that in the days of king Hoshea were carried away from their own land into captivity, whom Shalmaneser, king of Assyria, made captives, and carried beyond the river; they were carried off to another country. But they formed this plan among themselves, to leave the heathen population, and go to a more distant region, where the human race had never lived, so that there perhaps they might keep their statutes, which they had not kept in their own country. And they went in by the narrow passages of the Euphrates River. . . . But it was a long journey of a year and a half to that country, and that country is called Arsareth. There they have lived until the last time . . .” (II Esdras 13:40-46, an American Translation by Edgar J. Goodspeed). Famed Rabbi Moses Maimonides, in 1131 A.D., declared, “I believe the ten tribes to be in various parts of West Europe.” And Dr. Moses Margoliouth, a Jewish scholar, wrote, “It may not be out of place to state that the Isles afar off mentioned in the 31st chapter of Jeremiah were supposed by the ancients to be Brittania, Scotia and Hibernia (Ireland) . . . I believe that the old Cornish was a dialect of Hebrew as is Gaelic, Welsh and Breton.” Perhaps the “Lost Ten Tribes” are not lost after all. If that is the case, then where are the leading tribes of the Lost Ten Tribes, today? Where is the “birthright” tribe of Joseph, which became two tribes – Ephraim and Manasseh? This is no mere “footnote” to history and prophecy. It encompasses vital revelation of Biblical prophecy for the end times! The fate of nations – and the world – hangs in the balance! Your own fate is interlocked with the destiny of our peoples.

COMMENTS FROM READERS
“I don’t know where you find the time to do all you do, as well as write this phenomenal book on the United States and Great Britain in the ‘End Of Days’, and when I say phenomenal I really mean it.
“I have been pondering the meaning of this book over the last few days and its purpose. It is not just a book about the United States and Great Britain, although that of course is a large part of it. For those with a reasonable open mind, this book proves beyond any shadow of doubt that there is a Supreme Being who guides the destinies of entire peoples and nations. I think it was Herbert Armstrong who said and wrote on numerous occasions, that ‘Fulfilled Prophecy’ is one of the major proofs of the existence of GOD.
“This is a book which gives due warning of the catastrophic events which are soon to befall this world, and the way of escape by turning back to our Creator. This book ‘Cries Aloud And Spares Not’, while also preaching the True Gospel of the Kingdom of God, the wonderful good news that Yeshua The Messiah is going to return to this Earth very soon now, to bring an end to all the suffering, heartache, tears and misery of humanity under Satan’s sway.
“This is a book calling people everywhere to repentance. It is a book for people of all races, creeds and colors. It is for both Israelite and Gentile, for Jews as well as Christians, and also for the Atheist and the Agnostic, the Scoffer and the Skeptic. This is a book which will give humanity real hope in the days ahead when they see the events that are prophesied to happen, begin to come to pass. I have no hesitation in saying that in many ways, this book has been inspired by God’s Holy Spirit to witness to the Truth. May Almighty God bless this book in every way.” -- Nick Wood, England
“Thank you for all the effort you have put in writing this book. Thank you Cappy for being such a great support and loving helper. May our God bless both of you. I pray this book will bring many people to see the truth and repent.” -- Anneke van Delft, The Netherlands.
“Bill, you really nailed it this time that indeed America is Ephraim and Great Britain is Manasseh. I pray that our peoples will get on their knees in fervent repentant prayer before that great and terrible day of the Lord.” -- Terry Humphries, United Kingdom.
“Bill – What an AWESOME, inspired and inspiring book! It’s too bad that all history students are not given at least one year to go through this book page by page so they may truly understand where they came from, why they are here, and what is in store for them. What life altering changes it could make in the lives and choices of many of our young people. It makes us sad to realize that there are so few, if any, teachers in our educational system today capable of teaching such a course.” -- Bill and Ruth Lund, California.
