Question 317

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? What do you know about the ten lost tribes of israel?


The question in view is a long held FALSE TEACHING known as British Israelism or also called Anglo Israelism by the cult known as the World Wide Church of God (AKA…Armstrongism – Founded by: Herbert W. Armstrong , 1934).

The World Wide Church of God ALONG WITH others that teach this FALSE DOCTRINE claim the SO CALLED Lost 10 tribes of Israel migrated to the European nations, then to England where they became the primary ancestors of the British people and then eventually the United States.

The answer to this FALSE CLAIM is that the Lord said that the Nation of Israel WOULD BE scattered AMONG THE NATIONS in which they where, NOT just the European Nations, the British people or the United States.

(Amos 9:9) For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.

(Leviticus 26:33) And I will scatter you (Nation of Israel) among the heathen (Nations), and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

(James 1:1) James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes (Nation of Israel) which are scattered abroad, greeting.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
