The activities of Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations focuses on spreading knowledge of the Israelite Ancestry of Western Peoples.
Very often many are glad to receive this information. The fact that Yair Davidiy is an Orthodox Jew and that the message goes out from Jerusalem the capital of Israel adds something to it.
It happens quite frequently that we are asked questions along the following lines:
# How close do you think we are, of the government of Israel recognizing those people who believe they are of the lost tribes, and allowing them to come home? #
This sometimes irritates us since it sounds like that instead of endeavoring to help us spread the news the recipients seem to be expecting a reward for just being who they are and listening to us.
It may be likened to informing someone (let us call him "Joe") they are probably (but not with absolute certainty at the individual level) descended from Kings and that a rich realm once belonged to their ancestors.
Now part of this inheritance is being reclaimed (with much effort and in face of great resistance) by someone (named "Judah") who is definitely an heir and is their probable brother.
Joe then says,
"Very Nice! When I am going to be given my share!"
We then have to tell Joe that the information needs to be finally confirmed in ways acceptable to more of the experts. Knowledge of the already existing findings (that are indeed quite impressive) has to be spread. His other brothers also have to become involved. "Judah" who is now reclaiming the land also has to be approached. Our organization, Hebrew Nations, is doing all this but has difficulty functioning without funds.
Perhaps "Joe" can help?
By this stage "Joe" may have lost interest and might even be a little resentful towards us, as if we have "robbed" him of his kingdom.
We have written an article and produced a popular YouTube Clip to deal with this issue.
Why Descendants of the Ten Tribes are not Accepted into Israel at Present.
It may be that we have over-reacted.
We may have given the impression that the Ten Tribes on their own should accept the message of their Israelite Ancestry, spread this knowledge, and ensure it becomes widely accepted.
We also have spoken as if the Ten Tribes should conquer and settle areas (Jordan, Lebanon, etc) that are part of the Promised Land located around the present State of Israel.
These are indeed valid points
It is not as one-sided as we may have made it sound.
There were 12 Tribes. Ten of the Tribes separated and created their own Kingdom which was conquered by the Assyrians. Al the inhabitants were exiled and lost consciousness of their Ancestral Identity. Nevertheless they remained together or re-coalesced into their Tribal Ethnicities and moved to the West. Meanwhile the two Tribes of Judah and Benjamin together with Levites and other minority elements from the rest remained in the south, in the Kingdom of Judah. From them emerged the present-day Jewish People.
Sources suggest that Jews from Judah and Benjamin will indeed go out and encourage the Ten Tribes to return (Jeremiah 3:18, Midrash Yalkut Shimeoni, ShirHaShirim).
Regarding the Future redemption, the Midrash (Yalkut Shimeoni on Song of Solomon 1;16) states:
"..THE TEN TRIBES WHO WERE EXILED BEYOND THE SAMBATION RIVER ARE THEY WHOM THE EXILED OF JUDAH AND BENJAMIN ARE DESTINED TO GO UNTO AND TO BRING THEM BACK IN ORDER TO MERIT WITH THEM THE DAYS OF THE MESSIAH AND LIFE IN THE WORLD-TO-COME, AS IT SAYS,
"IN THOSE DAYS THE HOUSE OF JUDAH SHALL *GO UNTO* THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, AND THEY SHALL COME TOGETHER OUT OF THE LAND OF THE NORTH TO THE LAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN FOR AN INHERITANCE UNTO THEIR FATHERS"
*GO UNTO* in Hebrew "Yelcu-al" translated in the King James as WALK WITH.
The above passages are understood to mean that towards the End Times people from amongst Judah and Benjamin (i.e. the Jews) will go out and bring the Lost Ten Tribes back. In addition many of those amongst the Lost Ten Tribes who will have began to realize the truth of Israelite Identity may be descendants of Jews. Their ancestors frequently were those who were forced to change their religion (i.e. "Captive Jews") or for some other reason became lost amongst the nations. Brit-Am attempts to forge links both with the Captive Jews of Judah and with the Lost Ten Tribes of Ephraim.
We see here that the Jews of Judah will indeed eventually come to realize who the Ten Tribes are and they will be active in bringing them back.
In future talks we will show how:
The Jews at present are preparing the way for the other Tribes (Micah 4:8, Hosea 6:11 Isaiah 56:8 see "Drishat Tsion" by Rabbi Zvi Kalisher).
When the Ten Tribes return they will come back not only to the present say State of Israel BUT ALSO to areas round about such as Syria.Lebanon, and Jordan which they will conquer and settle (Zechariah 10:10 Micah 7:14).
Some of the Jews will be reluctant to accept the tribes when they return (Isaiah 49:21) but this shall be overcome and the two shall work together (Isaiah 11:12).
Many of the differences in religion will be resolved after the Ten Tribes return (Ezekiel (11:2, 18).
Despite all this they who realize they are descended from Israel NEED TO DO THEIR PART.
At present this means helping Brit-Am/Hebrew Nations spread the message.
