The Predicted Role of the Ten Tribes
The Name 'Hebrew'
Abraham was a Hebrew:
AND THERE CAME ONE THAT HAD ESCAPED, AND TOLD ABRAM THE HEBREW; FORÂ Â HE DWELT IN THE PLAIN OF MAMRE THE AMORITE, BROTHER OF ESHCOL, AND BROTHER OF ANER: AND THESE WERE CONFEDERATE WITH ABRAM.
The Book of Jonah relates how God told Jonah to go to the major Assyrian city of Nineveh and there prophesy that after 40 days it would be overturned. This meant according to the understanding of Jonah that Nineveh would be destroyed. Jonah did not want to go on this mission and attempted to flee to Tarshish in Spain.Â A storm arose at sea and the sailors of his ship realized that a supernatural power was causing it. They threw lots and the result fell on Jonah. Jonah told the seamen to cast him overboard.
[Jonah 1:9] AND HE SAID UNTO THEM, I AM AN HEBREW; AND I FEAR THE LORD, THE GOD OF HEAVEN, WHICH HATH MADE THE SEA AND THE DRY LAND.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Here we have the name Hebrew connected with worship of the God of Israel as if the two were mutually relevant to each other.Â Jonah was a Hebrew going to Tarshish in Spain. Israelites from the Ten Tribes were later exiled to Spain. They were known as Iberi, or as HiberiÂ i.e. as Hebrews. From Spain the Hiberi (Hebrews) moved onwards into Gaul and the British Isles. The Celtic inhabitants of Britain were all referred to as Iberi, or Hiberi, or Iberni (meaning Hebrews) by themselves and by others (such as Ptolemy) and the name Iberi (i.e. Hebrew) very frequently occurs in ethnic and place-names of the Western Celtic peoples. HibernianÂ still means Irish. The Iberian Peninsula (Spain and Portugal) was named after the IberiÂ Hebrews who once dwelt there but later left moving to Gaul and Britain.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The crew in Jonah's ship made another futile attempt to continue against the storm after which they reluctantly threw Jonah into the sea. A fish (whale or other sea-creature) swallowed Jonah and after three days spew him out onto the shore. He went to Nineveh and prophesied. The people of Nineveh did penitence and were forgiven and no disaster occurred (at that time) to the city.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Incidentally the peoples who later came westward from Scythia and Germania and who were also Israelites were referred to by the Romans as Barbari. This term is generally taken to be a negative expression meaning that they were barbarians and uncivilized in Roman eyes. Nevertheless the term according to some originally had ethnic connotations. The Hebrews in the Ancient Middle East (according to the Encyclopedia Judaica) were known as Iberi and as Barbari.

The Names of Isaac, Jacob, and Israel in Western Traditions
The Lost Ten Tribes were destined to be known by the names of the forefathers, Abraham the Hebrew, Isaac, and Jacob. Concerning Abraham who was known as "the Hebrew" we find the Western Celts also being known as "Hiberi" or Hebrews, see the source referred to above. Isaac was considered the ancestor of the scottish, Welsh, and English according to separate traditions.The name Jacob is repeated in the Union Jack (the flag of Britain), and in the term Yank which is a Hebrew alternative for JackÂ i.e. Jacob.
AND GOD SAID UNTO ABRAHAM, LET IT NOT BE GRIEVOUS IN THY SIGHT BECAUSE OF THE LAD, AND BECAUSE OF THY BONDWOMAN; IN ALL THAT SARAH HATH SAID UNTO THEE, HEARKEN UNTO HER VOICE; FOR IN ISAAC SHALL THY SEED BE CALLED.
Ephraim and Manasseh were destined to become a multitude in the midst of the earth and the name of Jacob be called upon them and the name of his fathers Abraham and Isaac (Genesis 48:16). This means primarily that the essence of the forefathers would be expressed through the sons of Joseph. It has a secondary meaning that the very names would recall the forefathers. Abraham was known as the Hebrew (Genesis 14:13) and the early inhabitants of Britain called themselves and were termed by others Iberi meaning Hebrews. Names given to the Scythians (Isaac-Gulu, Ishkuza, Zohak, Saca, Sak, Saksin, Saxon) and to the Saxons who settled England were derived from the name Isaac.

THE RACES OF BRITAIN AND THE PLACE OF THE PICTS AMONG THEM.
In the Albanic Duan, which seems to have belonged to some collection of additions to Nennius, and which contains the oldest record of the ethnological traditions of Scotland, the brothers Brittus and Albanus appear as the eponymi of the two Celtic races inhabiting respectively Britain and Alban, or Scotland. Thus--
"O, all ye learned of Alban,
Ye well-skilled host of yellow hair,
What was the first invasion? Is it known to you?
Which took the land of Alban?
Albanus possessed it; numerous his hosts.
He was the illustrious son of Isacon.
He and Briutus were brothers without deceit.
Â From him Alban of ships has its name.
Briutus banished his active brother
Across the stormy sea of Icht.
Briutus possessed the noble Alban
As far as the conspicuous promontory of Fothudain."
Note: The father of the brothers is named "Isacon" cf. "Isaac"!
Similar appellations are found in some of the earliest genealogies of the Welsh and English.
The name Jacob is recalled in the Union Jack of Britain meaning the Uniting of Jacob, and in the nickname "Yanki" which is short for Jacob. The Ten Tribes in the End Times are referred to in connection with the raising up the Tribes of Jacob (Isaiah 49:6), The flag of Britain is called the UNION JACK (i.e. union or covenant of Jacob) and the nickname Yank or YANKEE for North American derives from a form of the name Jacob.
AND HE SAID, IT IS A LIGHT THING THAT THOU SHOULDEST BE MY SERVANT TO RAISE UP THE TRIBES OF JACOB, AND TO RESTORE THE PRESERVED OF ISRAEL: I WILL ALSO GIVE THEE FOR A LIGHT TO THE GENTILES, THAT THOU MAYEST BE MY SALVATION UNTO THE END OF THE EARTH.
Adapted from Ephraim chapter four:
The prophet Isaiah addressed himself frequently to the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. One of his several addresses to the Ten Tribes is found in chapter 49:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â "Isles" and "isles of the sea" meaning mainly Isles in the Atlantic Ocean (Isles of Britain and coastlines of northwest Europe and North America) are several times mentioned in Scripture in a context recalling the Lost Tribes of Israel.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â "The Tribes of Jacob" (recalled above in ISAIAH 49) remind one that the flag of Britain is called the UNION JACK (i.e. union or covenant of Jacob) and the nickname YANKEE for North American is derivable from a Hebrew form of Jacob.
This etymology is explained by I. E. Mozeson ("The Word", p.20 entry: "ANKLE") and holds true regardless as to whether the name was derived from the Dutch Janke, a Red Indian name for "English", or from the name of a Red Indian Tribe. Whatever its origin, "YANK" is an acceptable shortening of the Hebrew Jacob!! This name was given to citizens of the USA and the name in Hebrew means Jacob.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â "A light to the Gentiles" is what the British descended peoples and northwest European peoples comparatively speaking have been despite frequent moral mistakes. On the whole these nations have been the best civilizing influence the world has ever known and they still areÂ despite everything!
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â "End of the earth", or "ends of the earth" is a frequent expression in the Prophets concerning the Lost Ten Tribes and nearly all of these peoples dwell at the geographical extremities of Continental masses when the Biblical view of the Holy Land of Israel as the center is taken into account. The servant of God (Israel) is entrusted with raising up the Tribes of Jacob who will be a light unto the nations and bring salvation unto the ends of the earth where most descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes now dwell. The Land of Israel in Biblical terms is the center of the earth and when measured from it most descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes dwell on the geographical extremities, on the ends of the earth. The Tribes of Israel are Jacob and represented by the Union Jack and the nickname Yank meaning Jacob.
Jacob was also known as Israel:
AND HE SAID, THY NAME SHALL BE CALLED NO MORE JACOB, BUT ISRAEL: FOR AS A PRINCE HAST THOU POWER WITH GOD AND WITH MEN, AND HAST PREVAILED.
AND GOD SAID UNTO HIM, THY NAME IS JACOB: THY NAME SHALL NOT BE CALLED ANY MORE JACOB, BUT ISRAEL SHALL BE THY NAME: AND HE CALLED HIS NAME ISRAEL.
