I like these types of folks. If you dont have people hating you and trying to destroy you and your work, then you're not working hard enough. This is a good sign, may more of them come, lol.

Should the Ten Tribes Keep the Sabbath?
Glad I found this channel. The whereabouts of the ten lost tribes has always intrigued me.
3. Joshua ch. 4
The Israelites Cross Over and Set up Megalithic Monuments
After the Israelites had crossed the Jordan, God commanded Joshua to take one man from each of the 12 Tribes. They were to take 12 stones from the dry river bed and carry them to the new camp ground on the west side of the Jordan.
We have pointed out that: There were Twelve Tribes of Israel: Each Tribe has its own special qualities unique to itself. We need a unity of all the Tribes to realize the full potential of the Israelite people. So too, each one of us has a role in this world that only we can exactly fulfill. We each must do as well as we can in accordance to our own situation and capabilities.
The Tribal representatives did as Joshua told them and carried the stones across. These rocks were evidently quite large and exceptionally strong individuals must have been chosen to carry them. The stones were meant to serve as a physical reminder of the miracle that had been done for the Israelites in crossing the Jordan.
WHAT MEAN YE BY THESE STONES? (Joshua 4:6) is a famous expression. Archaeology is important. The trail of megalithic dolmen monuments proves the Israelite origin of western peoples.
In addition to the stones taken up out of the river bed and transported to the east bank, another 12 stones were placed in the midst of the Jordan where the feet of the Priests with the ark had stood. It says the rocks were in their place "until this very day". This expression wherever it is used in the Bible means until the day the text was written (Talmud, Yoma 54;a). After all this was done and the people had crossed over the Priests took the Ark and passed across themselves.
Those who moved over included 40,000 warriors from the Tribes of Reuben, Gad, and half-Manasseh. The rest of these tribes including their women and children were to remain on the east side of the Jordan in the townships previously conquered from the Amorites.
These events greatly enhanced the prestige of Joshua in the eyes of the People.
As the Priests with the Ark went reached the west bank and went up on it the waters of the Jordan flowed back as they had formerly been.
The new camp was set up at a place named Gilgal on the first day of Nissan i.e. the beginning of Spring.
The 12 stones were set up there and are probably still to be seen.
Megalithic groups of standing stones are to be found in Ireland and the British Isles as well as in Scandinavia and Brittany, France.
In Israel the best example of standing stones still to be seen is probably those of Gezer to the southwest of Jerusalem towards Kiryat Gat.
The Bible says that the stones at Gilgal were to serve as evidence and as a witness as to what had taken place (Joshua 4:20-21).
This justifies the uses of archaeological and historical evidence to prove Biblical points.
This kind of evidence should serve to induce the Fear of Heaven in those who receive it, THAT YE MIGHT FEAR THE LORD YOUR GOD FOR EVER (Joshua 4:24).
