THE TRUE ROOTS AND ORIGIN OF THE SCOTS – (7) [Final Part]

By

A research summary and pointers toward further research

Red Hand of Ulster

“Wherever the pilgrim turns his feet, he finds Scotsmen in the forefront of civilization and letters. They are the premiers in every colony, professors in every university, teachers, editors, lawyers, engineers and merchants- everything, and always at the front.”- English writer Sir Walter Besant

“The mystery of Keltic thought has been the despair of generations of philosophers and aesthetes … He who approaches it must, I feel, not alone be of the ancient stock … but he must also have heard since childhood the deep and repeated call of ancestral voices urging him to the task of the exploration of the mysteries of his people … He is like a man with a chest of treasure who has lost the key”

(The Mysteries of Britain by L Spence)

Much  more  information  is  available  from  the  The  Ulster-Scots  Agency (73)  which  has  the following information:

  • Voyage to the New World- How the Ulster-Scots or Scots-Irish came to America
  • Ulster-Scots and Washington’s Generals – How men with Ulster connections helped shape America through battle
  • Ulster-Scots and United States Presidents – Presidents with Ulster connections who helped shape America
  • Ulster-Scots and the Presbyterian Church – How Ulster-Scots defined church life in America
  • From Folk to Country – How the Ulster-Scots influenced music in America
  • The Ulster-Scots Legacy- Famous Americans with Ulster-Scots backgrounds
  • The Ulster-Scots in the USA Today- How the bond remains….
  • The Declaration of Independence- The Ulster-Scots and America’s proudest moment- the signing of the Declaration of Independence…

 They were famous  for many pioneering  attributes.  Here are some examples  according  to the BBC’s survey of Scottish achievements:

  • David Livingstone, explorer in Africa
  • Alexander MacKenzie – discovered Canada
  • McDowall Stuart- first man to cross Australia
  • John Paul Jones – Founder of the US Navy
  • Nathanael Gordon -founder of the Russian Navy
  • William Paterson- founder of Bank of England
  • John Law- founder of the Bank of Scotland
  • Scots also provided the bodyguard for the King of France for centuries
  • Thousands of others rose to high service to the kings of Prussia, Sweden  and the Netherlands
  • They have  risen  to  be  US  Presidents  and  Prime  Ministers  of  Britain,  Canada, Australia and New Zealand(74)

We can thank the Scots for the world’s first modern  nation which has become a model for the rest of the world; it is also they that created the world’s first literate society; and it is they that invented both modern capitalism and democracy.

The Scottish Enlightenment inspired the American Revolution and Constitution;  hundreds of thousand went forth to the colonies to become  administrators  in Hong Kong, populate  and farm the Australian outback, created the American frontier, and also settled in Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.

All those years ago back in 1989 I read a remarkable  article in the South African Panorama magazine,  “Our Scottish Heritage”, which reinforced  my belief in the Judaic heritage  of the Scots. I quote from it below:

“It was the English writer Sir Walter Besant who wrote of the Scots in an English journal:

‘Wherever the pilgrim turns his feet, he finds Scotsmen in the forefront of civilization and letters. They are the premiers in every colony, professors in every university, teachers, editors, lawyers, engineers and merchants – everything, and always at the front.’ (75)

In Africa, the article explains, the Scots were great explorers, missionaries and merchants. Over the next several pages the author cites among these major achievers as James Bruce (explorer), Robert Hart (missionary), ministers with the Dutch Reform Church such as George Thom (due to the close affinity between the Dutch Reform Church and the Presbyterians). In fact, the Dutch Reform Church was founded by a Scot!

The first steam locomotive in South Africa was built and designed by a Scottish company (Hawthorn & Co). The very advanced South African railways, harbours, airports and road transport systems are all attributable to just six Scottish entrepreneurs.

Scottish academics left their mark upon South Africa including worl authorities on tropical and infectious diseases, anthropology etc.The famous Stellenbosch University was founded by a Scot!

Others that made their mark on the country include the famous David Livingstone and Robert Moffat. Governors include Sir George Grey and Lord Gladstone of Lanark. There are too many examples of Scottish achievement to quote from the article.

“Scottish immigrants and their descendants have had a widespread and profound influence on every sector of South African society, and out educational and  legal  systems  as  well  as  the  church  have  acquired  a decidedly Scottish flavour.”(76)

Here in Australia, an entire book has been devoted to the Scots titled The Scots in Australia which covers the period 1788-1900. The author, Malcolm Prentis, refers to various other works on the Scottish influence in early America, Canada and New Zealand which may be useful to follow up for further research.

In  any  event,  meticulously  examines  the   immigration  officials,  convicts  and  other immigrants. He analyses their contributions to commerce, industry, politics, the press, law, education, culture, the church and so on. Up to 1900, the Scots occupied a disproportionate number of seats in the Parliaments of the States of New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Similarly, a disproportionate number of Premiers in these States were Scottish.

… amazing achievements for a country of only 5 millions! Yet, if we were to recognise their Judaic roots, perhaps we would not be so surprised after all.(77)

The Scots are famous for dozens of achievements to the modern world whether they be in America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, India, Poland, Russia, Scandinavia. Their contributions include arts and architecture, banking and finance, inventions, electronics, publishing and literature, medicine, politics and military.

Among the Scottish accomplishments and inventions include:

  • Raincoat
  • Road surfaces
  • Rubber tyres
  • Adhesive stamps
  • Telephone
  • Bicycle
  • Television
  • Breech-loading rifle
  • Penicillin
  • Anaesthetic
  • Grand piano
  • First British War Memorial
  • Logarithms and decimal point
  • Modern capitalism (Adam Smith)
  • First ever savings bank
  • Co-op dividend principle of distributing dividends
  • … and one could go on for pages listing the firsts in exploration, adventurers, inventions, literature and medicines.

Another landmark work is Kevin Phillips’ The Cousins’  Wars: Religion, Politics and the Triumph of Anglo-America. His primary thesis is that Anglo-American history occurred in three overlapping  explosions of energy:

  • English Civil War
  • American Revolution
  • American Civil War

He states  that in each  of the above  wars,  the Calvinistic/egalitarian/entrepreneurial  spirit clashed with the older forces of politics (eg hierarchy, high church etc). His argument is that these forces created the means  to British world power which was inherited by America. It was  mainly  the  religion  of  Calvinism,  Puritanism  and  the Yankees  which  provided  the fortitude behind the victorious armies.

It is interesting that he notes:

“Compared with  the  weak  or  lackadaisical  approach  of  the  British Crown in putting down rebellion in 1642 and 1775, the Republican government of the United States was fast off the mark in 1861 — and just as fast to suspend democratic procedures … In Maryland, which had to choose a governor and a legislature in November, 1861, federal troops were used to prohibit  voting by  anyone  who sympathized with the South.”(78)   [emphasis mine]

There are so many myths about the British in North America, that a good book should be written on the subject, which the above only touches upon.

Over 250,000  Scotch-Irish  migrated  to America extending  from the Pilgrim era through  to about 1800. These Judaic Celts settled in large number in the American south, producing  a different mentality  to the north and a new Celtic civilisation.  Others did settle in the north, becoming great entrepreneurs,  businessmen  and financiers, using Masonic connections  as a boys network  to fight the faintest whif of Popery or later, Communism.  They possessed very strong moral and Protestant values.

After the Civil War

“The South was not only defeated, it was destroyed and plundered. During the reconstruction, the best of the South [according to the author] left for the western territories. It is there that we find the vibrancy of the old South in Texas, California, the Northwest, and the Cowboy states .. . Celtic blood is showing itself again in the American resistance to the Global elite.”(79)

George Washington himself said of those troops of his which were of Ulster origin:

“If defeated everywhere else, I will make my last stand amongst the Scots­ Irish of the native Virginia.”

Many of  his generals  were of that stock including General Harry Know, General Dan Morgan and at least seven more.

The Judaic-Celtic mentality, when stirred, will take on anything, no  matter how large, powerful or influential the opposition. Even when the odds are overwhelmingly against them, the Celtic peoples will have a go. Defeat is not a loss to them. It is a victory for them, for if you dare – you win. Just trying is a victory; while a victory in the traditional sense is a bonus.

Refer to Appendix 2 for recent media reports about the Scots; Appendix 14 for a humorous account of Scottish inventiveness; and Appendix 15 for more information about the Scots.

“I am a Scotsman, therefore I had to fight my way into the world.” – Sir Walter Scott

“No people so few in number have scored so deep a mark in the world’s history a the Scots have done.”- Victorian historian John Anthony Froude

To believe that we can penetrate the Celtic mind and share the Celtspsychological condition and feelings, is a pure waste of time” – Stuart Piggott, The Druids

 FUTURE OF THE SCOTS

JUDAH’S UNION WITH THE REST OF ISRAEL

In  an interesting article “Empire Games. On  imperial power  and the  vulnerabilities of American power”, Dominic Lieven notes:

‘Today’s world order is the heir of European empire … Europeans turned the Americas and Australasia into new Europes and, above all, new Englands. That is the geopolitical basis for the domination of the world by the English language and by political and economic ideologies which are mostly of British origin … For reasons imbedded in Jewish and European history, many of the leading figures in this new elite [prior to 1914] were Jewish (although in Asia they were often Chinese or Indian) …
“After 1945 a second phase of globalization ensued, under the US leadership… some nostalgia for empire is in evidence … This nostalgia is now being expressed in Britain with a confidence unthinkable 30 years ago.  A splendid museum of the British empire has opened in Bristol … Media and academic fashion shadows a broader renewal of interest in empire. One inspiration for this is the belief that most ex-colonies have failed as independent states”.(80) [emphasis mine]

A New Empire Nigh

According to Niall Ferguson in an article that appeared on the New York Times website:

“… Can the United States provide the necessary cash, even in the form of private-sector money? The answer is yes — so long as foreign countries are willing to lend it to the United States. For the fact is that America is not only the world’s biggest economy. It is also the world’s biggest borrower. Its muscular military power is underwritten by foreign capital. This is an unusual circumstance. In the prime of the European empires, when the British ran much of the Middle East, the dominant power was supposed to be a creditor, not a debtor, investing large chunks of its own savings in the economic development of its colonies. Hegemony also meant  hegemoney. Britain, the world’s banker before 1914, never had to worry about a run on the pound during its imperial heyday.

“…This might lead to the conclusion that Mr. Rogoff of the I.M.F. has little to worry about. But while being a hyperdebtor may not matter in economics, it can matter in the realm of strategy.

When the  last  great English-speaking empire bestrode the  globe  a hundred years ago, capital export was a foundation of its power. From 1870 to 1914, net capital flows out of London averaged from 4 to 5 percent of gross domestic product. On the eve of World War I, the capital flows reached an astonishing 9 percent. This was not only an extraordinary diversion of British savings overseas. It was also a remarkable attempt to transform the global economy by investing in commercial infrastructure — docks, railways and telegraph lines in what we now call less developed countries.

From 1865 to 1914, nearly as large a proportion of total British savings went to Africa, Asia and Latin America as remained in Britain. Critics of colonialism may carp about the wickedness of empire, but the one undeniable benefit of British hegemony was that it encouraged investors to risk their money in poor countries.

“…Since the creation of the euro, investors have a whole new range of securities  in  which  to  invest.  European  bonds  might  look  attractive  if foreigners, and not just Americanophobic French millionaires, start to think of the euro as safer than the dollar. AI Jazeera recently ran a cartoon of Uncle Sam weeping as the euro was run up a flagpole in place of the once-mighty dollar.” [emphasis mine](81)

Famous author Paul Johnson summarises what the Empire was all about:

“However, the fact that England had declared itself an empire invalidated the papal award in official English eyes, a judgment made formal by Queen Elizabeth l’s chief minister, Sir William Cecil, who told the Spanish Ambassador that  English settlers were free  to claim  for  the  Crown  any territory in the Americas not yet settled. The term “the British Empire” came into use at about the same time. It was given a religious underpinning by the widespread belief in England, made explicit in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, the most popular book in Elizabethan and Jacobean England after the Bible, that for historical reasons the English had succeeded the discredited Jews as the Elect Nation,  had vindicated their claim by the Reformation, and had a global mission to carry thus-purified Christianity throughout the world.”(82) [emphasis mine]

There are obviously different types of competing globalisms abounding and being pushed in the world today. It is a shame that the term globalism is being wrongly understood.  There is no single globalism,  but many competing varieties. Here are some:

  • Old Marxism
  • American and British capitalism
  • United Nations and subsidiaries
  • New Age religions numbering in the hundreds, all squabbling amongst themselves
  • Radical Islam
  • Fabian socialist international
  • Catholicism
  • and who knows what else

…yet  they  compete   and  hate  one  another.  But  there  are  sometimes   overlaps   and cooperation when expedient.

While one branch of Judah is amongst the Scots, let us not forget about the Jews. To this day, the neo-Nazis hate the Jews and accuse them falsely.

The Coming Exodus

The Bible clearly prophesies  that both Israel and Judah will be reunited after a future exodus and return to the promised land:

Isa 11:16  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, those left from Assyria; as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt. [the future Exodus will be primarily from Germany! This is just another proof that Assyria are the enemies of Israel in the latter days]

Isa 27:13  And it shall be, in that day the great ram’s horn shall be blown [the 7th Trumpet – symbolised by the Feast of Trumpets], and those perishing in the land of Assyria shall come, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt shall come and shall worship Jehovah in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.

Isa 43:1  But now so says Jehovah who created you, 0 Jacob, and He who formed you, 0 Israel; Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.

Isa 43:2  When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you (ie disasters will not totally destroy them]. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned; nor shall the flame kindle on you.

Isa 43:3  For I am Jehovah your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I gave Egypt for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for you [these peoples will be ruled by Israel].

Isa 43:4  Since you were precious in My sight, you have been honored, and I have loved you; therefore I will give men for you, and people for your life. lsa 43:5  Fear not; for I am with you. I will bring your seed from the east, and gather you from the west.

Isa 43:6  I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Do not keep back; bring My sons from far and My daughters from the ends of the earth;

Isa 43:7  everyone who is called by My name; for I have created him for My glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

Isa 43:8   Bring out the blind people  who have eyes, and the deaf who have ears. [physical and spiritual blind and deaf]

During this time, Israel and Judah will, at last, be united! The major scriptures on this subject are: Jer 31:1, 7-9; 50:4-5; Ezek 11:17; 34:12-13; 37:19-22. Other related scriptures include: Jer 12: 14-15; 16:15; 23:3-4, 7-8; 24:6-7; 30:3, 8-10; 33:6-9; 50:4-5, 19-20; Ps 14:7; 53:6; 68:6; 30:4; Lev 26: 42-46).

Other scriptures on the reunion of Israel and Judah include: Jer 3:17-19; Zech 12:10-14; Rom 11:26; Acts 15:16-17; Hos 1:11; 2:14; Mic 2:12; 5:4-7; Zech 8:7-8; 10:9-12.

Jer 31:6  For there shall be a day that the  watchmen on Mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise and let us go up to Zion to Jehovah our God!

Jer 31:7  For so says Jehovah, Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations. Cry out, give praise and say, 0 Jehovah, save Your people, the remnant of Israel.

Jer 31:8  Behold, I will bring them from the north country and gather them from the corners of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together; a great company shall return there.

Jer 31:9  They shall come with weeping, and with prayers I will lead them. I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way; they shall not stumble in it, for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn.

Jer 31:10  Hear the Word of Jehovah, 0 nations, and declare it in the coastlands afar off. And say, He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him, as a shepherd keeps his flock.

In Dan 9:27 it indicates that Christ has 3 1/2 years of His ministry to complete. As He was sent to the lost sheep of the House of Israel, it figures that He will complete His ministry to them. Why? Because it is through Israel that Christ and the spirit-born children of God will rule and reign.

First, the rebels must be purged out (Ezek 20:35-38; Joel 3:20-21).

Eze 20:33  As I live, says the Lord Jehovah, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, I will reign over you.

Eze 20:34  And I will bring you out from the people [second Exodus], and I will gather you out of the lands in which you are scattered among them [captivity in foreign lands], with a mighty hand and with a stretched out arm and with fury poured out.

Eze 20:35  And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face.

Eze 20:36  Just as I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, says the Lord Jehovah. [this seems to be referring to a purging process during the Tribulation and/or afterward]

Eze 20:37  And I will cause you to pass under the rod [Amos 5:3; Lev 27:32-this refers to the ‘Lord’s tithe’ of people set aside by Him], and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.

Eze 20:38  And I will purge out from among you the rebels and those who sin against Me. I will bring them out from the land where they reside, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel [rebels will be liberated, but will not enter the Holy Land – they will be purged – possibly with the aid of the Priests and Levites]. And you shall know that I am Jehovah.

In Jer 31 :2 and Hos 2:14 we are told that God will work with Israel in the wilderness – somewhere close to the Holy Land (see also Zech 13:9; Amos 5:3; Lev 27:32; Ezek 20:37). The prophecies show that only 1/3 of Israel will be left after the Tribulation, and only one of that figure will be alive after the cleansing, to make it into the Holy Land.

In the Bible, when God set something back on track, He first cleansed the Priests followed by the Levites (see Malachi 3:2-6). Due to its senior position, Judah would have to be cleaned up at the outset as well:

“Then shall the offering of Judah and Jerusalem be pleasant unto the Lord, as in the days of old, and as in former years” (Mal 3:4). See too Ezek 44:10-12; 48:11. Levi then, will be the tribe carrying out religious duties such as the religious teachers, ministers, executers of the Law as well as probably being the judges.

After her cleansing, Israel will be led into the Holy Land to complete her training to be led by the God and the saints via Judah, to colonise and rule the world (Hos 2:23; Zech 10:9). If the above analysis of scripture is correct, then we may find the following occurring at the outset of the Millennium, after the Day of the Lord:

  1. Second Exodus from captivity in foreign lands after repentance
  2. cleansing of  the  princes,  Judah,  Priests  and  Levites  (in  accordance  with  the principles of the Older Testament. See II Chron 29:1-5, 15-16, 34; 30:1)
  3. cleansing then follows on to Ephraim and Manasseh (30:1-3)
  4. the rest of Israel will then be cleansed
  5. the New  Covenant  will be  made  after  this  cleansing  (possibly  including  water baptism)
  6. as we shall see, Israel will take certain gentile nations into servitude, at least for a while and colonise their former lands. Gradually, Christ will bring the rest of the world under Him through the children of God and Israel

Then God will restore His people to global leadership as the following scriptures demonstrate (see Appendix 8):

Isa 11:11  And it shall be in that day, the Lord shall again set His hand, the second time, to recover the remnant of His people that remains, from Assyria and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Ethiopia, and from Persia, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the coasts of the sea.

Isa 11:12  And He shall lift up a banner for the nations, and shall gather theoutcasts of Israel and gather together the scattered ones of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Isa 11:13  And the envy of Ephraim shall depart, and the foes of Judah shall be cut off ; Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not trouble Ephraim. [English and Scots will stop their fighting]

Isa 11:14  But they shall fly on the shoulders of the Philistines to the west; they shall spoil the sons of the east together; they shall lay their hand on Edam and Moab; and the sons of Ammon shall obey them. [God will use them to conquer various nations]

Isa 11:15  And Jehovah shall utterly destroy the tongue of the Egyptian sea; and with His scorching wind He shall shake His hand over the River, and shall strike it into seven streams, and make one tread it with shoes.

Isa 19:17  And the land of Judah shall be a terror to Egypt [Mizraim]; everyone who mentions it shall be afraid toward it, because of the purpose of Jehovah of Hosts, which He has purposed against it.

Jer 33:14  Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah.

Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man [of Judah] to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

Joe 3:18  And it shall be, in that day the mountains shall drop down new wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the rivers of Judah shall flow with waters; and a fountain shall come forth from the house of Jehovah, and shall water the valley of Shittim.

Joe 3:19  Egypt shall be a ruin, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, from violence done to the sons of Judah, whose innocent blood they poured out in their land.

Joe 3:20  But Judah will dwell forever, and Jerusalem to generation andgeneration. uust as the Scots were the pioneers leading the way so often in the colonies, in bringing tribes and peoples to heel under Israel, so they shall fulfil this function again].

Zec 9:13  For I have bent Judah for me as a bow; I filled it with Ephraim, and I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, 0 Greece, and make you as the sword of a mighty man. [see 10:3-7]

Zec 9:14  And Jehovah shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth like the lightning [how? Via the Ephraimites, led by Judah]; and the Lord Jehovah shall blow the ram’s horn [Day of Trumpets- symbolising war?], and shall go out with the windstorms of the south [Judah].

Zec 9:15  Jehovah of Hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour and trample the slingstones. And they shall drink and be boisterous, as through wine. And they shall be filled like a bowl, and like the corners of the altar.

Zec 10:3  My anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the he-goats; for Jehovah of Hosts has visited His flock the house of Judah, and has made them as His beautiful horse in battle.

Zec 10:4  Out of Him came the cornerstone; out of Him the nail; out of Him the battle bow; out of Him every oppressor together.

Zec 10:5  And they shall be like mighty ones who trample the mud of the streets in the battle. And they shall fight because Jehovah is with them, and they shall make the riders on horses ashamed.

Zec 10:6  And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will return to save them; for I have pity on them. And they shall be as though I had not cast them off ; for I am Jehovah their God, and I will answer them.

Zec 10:7  And Ephraim shall be like a mighty one, and their heart shall rejoice as by wine. And their sons shall see and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in Jehovah.                                        _

Zec 10:8  I will hiss for them and gather them; for I have redeemed them. And they shall be many as they were many.

Zec 10:9  And I will sow them among the peoples, and they shall remember Me in the distances; and they shall live with their sons and return.

Zec 10:10  I will return them out of the land of Egypt, and I will gather them out of Assyria [second Exodus]; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; for room shall  not be found for them.  [this population explosion will necessitate them to become colonisers again]

Zec 12:5  And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The people of Jerusalem  shall be my strength in Jehovah of Hosts their God.

Zec 12:6  In that day I will  make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire among cut grain. And they shall devour all the peoples all around, on the right hand and on the left hand. And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her place, in Jerusalem.

Zec 12:7  Jehovah also  shall save the tents  of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the people of Jerusalem may not be magnified above Judah.

Zec 12:8  In that day Jehovah shall defend around the people of Jerusalem. And it will be, he who is feeble among them at that day shall be like David; and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of Jehovah before them.

Zec 14:14  And Judah also  shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the nations all around shall be gathered, gold, and silver, and clothing in great  abundance [those nations who stole Israel’s wealth in the Tribulation, will have that wealth confiscated]

Judah produced the royal line, a warrior class and lawmakers. In other words they were to be the political leaders as we have seen. It is interesting that the Scots have produced inventions, military leaders and political leaders well above their numbers in the USA, Australia and South Africa. In ancient Israel they led the other tribes in the camp. In the USA they were in the forefront of the colonising people, leading the way. They are a very brave people who are willing to take on anything:

‘The  wicked flee when no man pursues; but the righteous  are bold as a lion.” (Prov 28:1)

Throughout Bible times they dwelt within and in proximity to Jerusalem, the capital city of Jerusalem as the leading tribe. And were fierce defenders of God’s way together with the Levites; and were associated with the Temple and all that goes with leadership.

Recently a book was published titled Covenant People by Clifford Longley. The author (who is not a Bl believer)  draws  a lot on Biblical references to God’s covenant people and especially the coronation ceremony and relates this to the British and Americans. The belief in their parallel to Israel by the English, Puritans, Americans, Afrikaners. The influence of the concept in the British Empire and important segments of the American people, continue on to this day.

“An  even  more  celebrated  use  of  typology  by  Ronald  Reagan  was  his reference to America as a ‘shining city on a hill’, which is a typological use of Matthew 5:14. It was by no means unique to him …”(83)  [see Appendix 13 for a modern interpretation  of America’s role today]

He mentions that the English had a “soft and benign version of the Chosen People theory­ that England’s destiny was to shine ‘a light unto the gentiles.’ “(84)

And

“… the motivation behind the British Empire, which was based on the view  – however  inadequately  acted out –  that Britain existed for the rest of the world’s  benefit.  It  may  be  some  consolation   to  know  that  the  original Chosen   People  wrestled   with  precisely   the  same   difficulty.   They  were Chosen, but for whose benefit? Early on, it was plainly for their own; as time passed,  the  truth  dawned  that  it  was  for  the  benefit  of  all humanity.”(85) [emphasis mine]

They will once again be at the forefront of the world, under God and His saints. They will rule the world with justice producing peace and prosperity for all.

CONCLUDING REMARKS

Today the Empire is but a remnant of its former glory. The good it brought to the world is still there in some ways.

Little Britain is still the world’s 4th largest economy with the 4th most powerful military! It is still the centre of world finance and the source of many great inventions.

It’s helicopters are more advanced than those of the US military according to a Discovery Channel documentary (2003) and its almost impenetrable new tanks are not able to be duplicated by any other power!

When the British send in 10,000 troops to do a job, the others send in 100,000 to do the same job (this is true right back to World War One). Why is this so? Why?

The British exported thousands of executives and scientists to the United States over the past 40 years helping give America a huge advantage over its rivals.

During the internet/IT boom of the late 1990s, the 10’000s of British moved to Silicon Valley and elsewhere and assisted mightily with America’s world technology dominance. What is it about the ‘Brits’ that they are able to do this?

No military or political power brought down the Empire. Rather, it was the Leftist university professors, media, Socialists on the one hand within. I have coined the phrase ‘Left-wing Fascists’ and ‘Pink Fascists’ to aptly describe their minority role in society – yet immense influence and power. Truly, these new Fascists are the ruling class (sometimes called ‘the new class’), controlling the masses through the media, culture, churches etc. And of course, cloning themselves in their bastions of minority will and power: universities. These Fascists seek out their own ilk to promote to tutor or lecturer status or to manouvre into positions. And they put down or even harass those that do not fit their mould.

They then clone the next generation of leaders in the media, churches, culture, education, trade unions and politics who, in turn, change society and model it along the lines of the Fascistic clone creators.

This is how the contributed to the destruction of the Empire.

Yet they remain in their ivory towers, protected by their mates in the media, never venturing out to experience society and what the majority want. Instead, they know what is best of the rest of us.

They are unaccountable for their actions, teachings and undermining of society – they remain so until governments around the world establish independent inquiries into their evil doings and Education Commissions to monitor their behaviour, actions and educational courses.

On the other extreme, both the neo-Nazis and the libertarian Right proclaim the conspiracy theory that the British still secretly rule the world; that the Queen is part African; that she is on top of the drug-pushing empire; that the Royals are New World Order Satanists; and that the British seek to destroy or takeover America!

Such wickedness and evil lies!

But they are not alone in their blind hatred for Britain: there were also jealous and bitter men on the other side of the Atlantic, Franklin Roosevelt foremost among them. For instance:

“…  Britain turned to the US for a loan when the war – and Lend Lease – ended in 1945. But the conditions attached to the loan at once had the effect of undermining British overseas power. In return for $3.75 billion [with the last instalment due to be paid in 2006], the Americans insisted that the pound be made convertible into the dollar within twelve months. The run on the Bank of England’s reserves this caused was the first of the succession of sterling crises that were to puncture Britain’s retreat from empire …  the US [was born] in a war against the British Empire”.(86)

In 1950 Britain produced 25% of the world’s manufacturing exports; over 33% of world merchant shipping launchings; 15% of world steel exports. By 1973 this had slid to 9%, 4% and 5% respectively.

As Ferguson noted, “it was the political decision that caused the economic change, not the other way around”.(87)

Yet Britain took the loan, even though the war was being turned against Hitler before American involvement.

“The dissolution of the British Empire-one of the most beneficient and enlightened political forces in history-took place for many reasons, including, it pains me to say, pressure from the United States. But part of the reason for its dissolution was inner uncertainty, weariness, a failure of nerve. By the middle of the last century Britain no longer wished to rule: it wanted to be liked. The promiscuous desire to be liked, for states as much as for individuals, is a profound character flaw. It signals a faltering of courage, what Pericles castigated as malakia, “effeminacy,” and a dangerous loss of self-confidence. At the height of the Cold War, the political commentator James Burnham observed that “Americans have not yet learned the tragic lesson that the most powerful cannot be loved-hated, envied, feared, obeyed, respected, even honored perhaps, but not loved.” Have we now some forty years on, finally learned that lesson?”(88) [emphasis mine]

Clifford Longley writes:

“In Britain in 1956 colonialism was not a dirty word. But the American desertion of its closest ally (as it seemed in London) [by America forcing Britain out of the Suez] was a severe blow to national prestige. The truth appears to be that Eisenhower and the State Department in Washington had become increasingly irritated by pretensions to equality with America, which were simply getting in the way of America …”(89)

It is now becoming more and more obvious to the declining Anglo-Keltic-philes amongst the ruling classes that the dismantling of the British Empire has led to a world that is becoming uglier and more unmanageable by the day.

Britain was forced to buy warships that were not efficient and many quickly broke down. After WW2, Britain was still on rations when the Germans were taken off rations because of the extent of aid given to them.

Jealousy and divisiveness  between the twin powers continues and today the Anglo-Saxon­ Keltic powers  are structurally  in decline, even though in appearance  they are at the top of the world:

“The “Partnership of Nations,” as America and its allies were billed in Afghanistan, consisted on the ground of the United States plus the British, Australian, and New Zealand SAS (special forces commandos) and somewhere a little further back Canada’s JTF2 (being semi-French, Canada is a semi-detached member of the Anglosphere). All these states are British­ derived and, on the face of it, suggest a working version of Winston Churchill’s dream of a grand reconciliation between the United States and the British Empire in some new configuration. But these days what these countries share is a common culture that, officially, recoils from the idea that they have a common culture. We’re multiculturalists now, and the salient point about multiculturalism is that it’s a unicultural phenomenon, existing almost entirely in the Anglo-American world.

Young Britons, we’re told by Tony Blair and the other Europhiles, now think of themselves as European-they eat pasta, they drink Perrier, they like nothing better than to curl up with a good EU harmonization directive on the permitted curvature of bananas, they wear regulation Euro-condoms, etc.

Similarly, Australians, according to their new orthodoxy, think of themselves as Asians. This was the essence of the republican case in the 1999 referendum on the monarchy: it was inappropriate to have an English queen presiding over a country with so many Vietnamese restaurants. As it transpired, not all Australians were up to speed on the new orthodoxy and on referendum day Her Majesty won handily. Australians, the republicans assured us, wanted an elected head of state. Now they’ve got one. To paraphrase Tony Blair, she is the people’s queen now.

Canadians, meanwhile, think of themselves as … well, they’ve yet to come up with a word for it, but it sure as hell isn’t “British” or “American.” In the last thirty years, no other countryhas worked so hard to upturn the realities of both history and geography.”(90)

COMING:  a new global Commonwealth  (typified by the British Empire) with Israel ruling the world under the Messiah and His saints for the service and benefit of all mankind!

77   Well might those without knowledge of the Judaic origin of the Scots attempt to demonstrate  environmental  forces that drove the Scots on to these accomplishments. However, we must not forget a Divine force working through Judaic blood. This reminds me of Paul Johnson’s Offshore  Islanders which I read back in 1979 or thereabouts,  in which he also argues similarly for the development of the English character. He is a tremendous  historian, but when he makes statements in the epilogue such as “it is the function of [political] liberalism to redress the weakness  of nature by reason. This is what civilisation  is about”, demonstrates that even fine historians like him do not understand God’s Word. Yet such historians make a fine contribution  to furthering our knowledge and understanding  of the British peoples.
