==== ==== 1. Joshua Chapter 3 http://britam.org/joshua/joshua.html Joshua ch. 3 The Israelite Prepare to cross the Jordan on dry land. The Israelites under Joshua moved their camp from Shittim to the bank of the Jordan River. At that time the Jordan was much greater in size than it later became. In addition to climate change from the past, in modern times the Jordan has been further greatly diminished due to most of its water flow being utilized for irrigation purposes by the Israelis and Jordanians. The Israelites had officers or shotrim (singular, "shoter") placed over them. In Modern Hebrew this word "shoter" means policeman. Three days after they came to the Jordan bank the officers passed through the camp and told the people that when they saw the Ark of the Covenant carried by the Priests (Cohanim) from the Tribe of Levi moving out then they should follow after it. They were to keep a distance however between themselves and the Ark of 2000 cubits or ca. 750 meters. The People were also told to purify themselves by ritual immersion in a pool or spring of water. This was in preparation for the great miracle they were to experience the day after. The next day, Joshua then gave an order for the Priests to take up the Ark and pass before the people. At that time the Jordan was in full flow and overflowing its brinks. As soon as the feet of the Priests bearing the Ark stepped into the water the river split in two. The people passed over on the dry ground. All this while the Priests with the Ark remained standing in the dry riverbed.

==== (b) New YouTube Clip The Tribe of Levi and Revealing Tribal Identity
Duration: 29.36 minutes
The Tribe of Levi is mainly to be found amongst the Jews. There are however offshoots of Levi amongst the Ten Tribes that help us determine where the Ten Tribes are. The Almighty made a Covenant with Levi. Levi was promised that he would increase to a great degree and that the Almighty would reward him. Characteristics of Levi are impressive. In the End Times all descendants of Israel will have it made known to them what Tribe they belong to. They who pertain to Levi will be the first to be so identified. See: Levi.

3. For Your Amusement. Message from An Unconvinced Anti-Jewish Irate Welshman New comment on your video The Celts Called Themselves Hebrews! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USAZi_ocp2w&list=TLCitCt7wUMzE8w5nrPk5YKz-Bs0hq4pVE TheDataman2 A load of religious propaganda, coming strait from an imperialist state where the truth is non existent. How can you make such assumptions about my culture as a welsh Celtic descendant! You clearly haven't studied this properly and are reading crap off the internet and taking it as gospel! Just like you take the word of the bible and assume it is the truth. It is a shame you were brought up into a community of delusional fools! Cymru am byth [Wales Forever]!! ==== Brit-Am Note: The clip under discussion, The Celts Called Themselves Hebrews!
with 9,813 views so far is our most successful. It is good but we had others that were not so bad as well. Why this one has proven to be the most popular is not certain, but it is. It also seems to be one of the most convincing! ==== ====
4. Commentary to the Book of Proverbs Continued (17:11-14).
Proverbs 17: 11 Evil people seek only rebellion, but a cruel messenger will be sent against them.
The rebellious seeks only the evil But a cruel angel will be sent against them.
Mestudat David: They who speak only badly about God, seek a bad end for themself in this world.
Rashi says that someone of a contrary nature and habit will constantly seek out the bad aspects. They will always look for opportunities to do evil or find the bad in others.
12 Better to meet a she-bear robbed of its cubs than to confront a fool immersed in folly.
Ephraim (Genesis 48) was leader of the Ephraimites, the most warlike of the twelve tribes of Israel. Their land was bordered on the east by the Jordan River, on the west by the Mediterranean Sea. (The last grizzly in the state of Utah, trapped and shot by a sheepherder in 1923, was an 1,100-pound, 9' 11" livestock killer known as "Old Ephraim.")
Moses gave the land of Canaan to Caleb (Numbers 13-14), who was the leader of the tribe of Judah. "Old Caleb," the grizzly, was anointed custodian of the American West, the Garden of the World, the new Promised Land, "which floweth with milk and honey."
13 Evil will not depart from the house of one who returns evil for good.
This can happen. It may be that we have been helped by others and did not appreciate it at the time. Later circumstances change and we react in a misguided manner towards those we should have been grateful towards. We should keep our eyes open, be aware of what is happening and act as we feel God would want us to.
14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water; so stop before the quarrel breaks out.
Opening a sluice to let water out is irreversible. The water cannot be held back. Cease the unpleasantry before it begins. ==== ====
5. Hebrew Nations: Present Intentions
At present we are going through a financial crisis the outcome of which is unknown and could lead us almost anywhere. Assuming that (God willing) we are enabled to continue along the lines we have been, we intend the following:
Continuation of Present Activities: Sending out email postings, answering queries, updating research notes, following informational leads, new articles and YouTube clips, selling books, etc.
Putting the Final Polishes to "Hebrew Ancestry". This is important and the work is well worthwhile.
Intensified Renewed Study of Scripture and where necessary related sources. We intend to go back through the Bible as thoroughly as we can with an emphasis on Brit-Am matters.
More Hebrew articles and YouTube Clips in Hebrew. Preparations have already begun in this matter.
The above list is more or less in order of priority but this does not mean that we will first do one thing then the other. There may be a certain degree of overlap with the different projects being carried on parallel to each other.
