     The multitude of people which was predicted for the house of
Joseph never was realized while they dwelt in Samaria, their
Palestinean home; but the increase of the Saxon race is
acknowledged to be phenomenal. National statistics show that
Russia doubles her population in 140 years, Spain in 142 years,
France in 150 years, Turkey in 555 years; but that England
doubles her population every 45 years, and that the United States
doubles theirs in 25 years. This is a wonderful vindication of
the truth which we are bringing, for the word of truth declares:
"Thou hast increased the nation, O Lord, thou hast increased the
nation: thou hast removed it far unto all the ends of the
earth."--Isa.26:15. The fulfillment of this prophecy is today
called "Imperialism."

(Remember when Allen was writing was in 1917- Keith Hunt)

     One of the first national characteristics mentioned in
prophecy concerning Isaac's seed is, that they shall possess the
gates of those that hate them. Gates are entrances. National
gates are now called "ports." Since the acquisition of the
Sandwich Isles, Porto Rico and the Philippines by the United
States, the Saxons control nearly all the national gateways of
the world. For, prior to that time, England and America
controlled all the ports of the North American continent, and
England possessed, not only all the ports of the British Isles
and those in Australian waters, but also Gibraltar, Suez Canal,
Malta, Alexandria, Cyprus Wand, gates into China, the German
Ocean, the Cape gate into the Indian Ocean, and all the gates of
India, gates along the east and west coasts of Africa, and the
Cape Horn gate from the Atlantic into the Pacific Ocean. In the
face of such foretold facts as these for the house of Joseph,
need we be surprised that God, who declareth the end from the
beginning, should include in the blessings of his birthright man,
"the deep that croucheth beneath" his vessels ?
     The Lord also says of Joseph, "He shall push the people
together, to the ends of the earth: and they (who together are
doing the pushing) are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are
the thousands of Manasseh." This seems to imply an alliance,
offensive and defensive, on the part of these brother nations,
the outcome of which will be that they together shall push the
rest of the nations to the ends of the earth. This alliance would
be but natural, for while it is true that brothers are apt to
quarrel and fight among themselves, it is also true that one of
these brothers is not going to stand by and allow a stranger to
jump on his brother and thresh him. And while we write, the talk
of just such an alliance is in the air, and we are sure the
result will be as God hath said.
     God also further says, "Behold, the people of Israel shall
rise up as a great Lion, and lift himself as a young lion; he
shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink of the
blood of the slain. He hath as it were the strength of an
Unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break
their bones, and pierce them through with his ARROWS." We have
requoted this Scripture, concerning the eating up of the nations,
so that our readers may see that, when this time of the
destruction of the nations comes, the Lion of Judah, which is
with Ephraim, the Unicorn of Ephraim, and the Arrows of Manasseh
are together, i. e., England and America.
     The Lord also says of this same people, "The portion of
Jacob is not like them (destroyed); for he (God) is the former of
all things: Israel is the rod of his inheritance: the Lord of
hosts is his name. Thou art my BATTLE AX and WEAPONS OF WAR: for
with thee will I break in pieces the nations, and with thee will
I destroy kingdoms."--Jer.51:19-20. "There is none like unto the
God of Jeshurun (symbol name for Israel), who rideth upon the
heaven in thy help, and in his excellency on the sky. The eternal
God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms: and
he shall thrust out the enemy from before thee ; and shall say,
Destroy them. Israel then shall dwell in safety alone."--Deut.
33: 26-27.
     This is undoubtedly to be the final outcome of Israel's
history, and yet, prior to this, and while they are dwelling in
the midst of other nations, it is said of them: "The remnant of
Jacob shall be in the midst of many people as a dew from the
Lord, as the showers upon the grass." And yet it is in the very
next verse that the prophet says of this same people, that they
are the strongest power on earth, "Who, if he go through, both
treadeth down, and teareth in pieces, and none can deliver."--
Micah 5:7-8.
     Here, to say the least, is a two-fold aspect, or two
characteristics of the same race; that is, a people who are as
the refreshing and fruitful showers, and as dew from the Lord to
the nations around them; and yet they are a people whom none of
those nations who go to war with them can conquer. This double
phase of character is due to the fact that they are that portion
of the elect race with whom are those who also belong to the
election o f grace. This is both the national and the spiritual
character of the Christianized house of Joseph, for the Lord does
say of Ephraim-Israel, whom he says is in the isles afar off,
whom he also calls the nations, of whom he says, "Thou shalt yet
plant vines upon the mountains o f Samaria," that they "FOUND
GRACE in the wilderness; even Israel."--Jer.31. We are told that
the law was given by Moses, but that grace and truth came by
Jesus Christ, and since the Divine word which was sent to Jacob
lighted upon Israel, even Ephraim, we know that the grace which
they received in their far away home was the Grace of the Gospel
of the Son of God. The wilderness where these people received the
grace of God is that country whither they went when they were
cast out of the land of their fathers, which at that time was
unknown and uninhabited, hence a wilderness. The fact that this
people received the Gospel, while cast out and lost, is also a
fulfillment of the prophecy by Jeremiah in which the Lord says
that he will send many fishers, Gospel fishers, and they shall
fish them. This is also why we are told that "Ephraim shall say,
What have I to do any more with idols?"
     "But," questions one, "are there no Gentiles who have become
Christians except these nations which are of the birthright
kingdom of Israel?" Our answer is, Yes; but each of these also,
like Ephraim and Manasseh, needed to be adopted. This is why we
are told, "As many of you as have been baptized into Christ have
put on Christ. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed,
and heirs according t0 THE PROMISE." This adoption is necessary
in all cases where the persons are of non-Israelitish nations,
for the covenants, the promises, and the adoption are
Israelitish, and belong to none who are not of the seed of
Abraham. Those who are thus adopted become flesh of his flesh and
bone of his bone. It is for this reason that Jesus took on
himself the seed of Abraham, for it behooved him to be made like
unto his brethren. This involves many questions which cannot be
discussed here, but we take time to say that, in order to belong
to the election of grace, the adopted son is BORN of the spirit,
and the home-born must also be born of the spirit. It is the
conquering, literal, fleshly Israel that is a type of the
conquering, literal, spiritual Israel. It is the literal, fleshly
adoption into national Israel, which is the earthly family of
God, that is a type of the literal spiritual adoption into the
heavenly family of God, of whom Jesus Christ was the first-born
among many brethren, both in the flesh and in the spirit, and who
is also the first-born among many brethren in a two-fold sense,
for he was not only the first among those who are both sons of
God and sons of Abraham, but he was also the first out of the
many who shall yet be "the children of the resurrection."
     The fact that Joseph-Israel becomes Christianized while cast
out of their land is the reason for the following: "Loose thyself
from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion. For thus
saith the Lord, Ye sold yourselves for naught, and ye shall be
redeemed without money. For thus saith the Lord God, My people
went down aforetime into Egypt to sojourn there, and then
Assyrian oppressed them without cause." To be redeemed without
money is certainly a new covenant truth, and one that is heralded
from our pulpits every where. On Mt. Zion, inside the walls of
Jerusalem, the city of David, were the royal dwellings; hence,
Zion becomes one of the generic names for the seed of Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph or Judah. This captive daughter of Zion, who
the Lord declares shall be redeemed without money, went first to
Egypt, and was also oppressed by the Assyrian. It was the
Birthright people who were led captive into Assyria.
     It is the barren woman, the desolate, the woman forsaken,
the one who knew the reproach o f widowhood, the wife o f youth,
who had been divorced, of whom the Lord declares, that she had
more children than when married, and to whom the Lord says:
"Enlarge the place of thy tent (dwelling) and let them stretch
forth the curtains of thine habitations, spare not, lengthen thy
cords, and strengthen thy stakes; for thou shalt break forth on
the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the
Gentiles." "Imperialism" again. But it is this same woman to whom
the Lord says, "Thy maker is thine husband ... for a small moment
have I forsaken thee; ... In a little wrath I hid my face from
thee for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have
mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer ... In righteousness
shalt thou be established; and great shall be the peace of thy
children ... Whosoever shall gather against thee shall fall for
thy sake ... No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper
(be this weapon against either the election of grace or against
their nation); and every tongue that shall rise against thee in
judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage (national and
spiritual) of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness
is o f me, saith the Lord."--Isa.54th chapter. "For the
transgressions of MY PEOPLE was he (he is brought as a LAMB to
the slaughter) stricken."
     Jesus said, concerning his Church, "I will never leave thee
nor forsake thee"; and concerning this one-time cast-off and
forsaken people, this promise is given "Thou shalt no more be
termed forsaken." Why? Because "the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the
Lord. As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
My spirit that is upon thee, and the words which I have put in
thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the
mouth of thy seed, not out of the mouth of thy seed's seed, saith
the Lord, from henceforth and forever."--Isa.59:20-21.
     The failure, hitherto, to identify the Gospel promise! as
belonging to that branch of the Abrahamic posterity which has the
accompanying national characteristics, has been the cause of
untold confusion, untold harm, untold skepticism, as well as much
loudly-told infidelity, both within the pale of Christian
denominations and out of them.
     Tom Paine boldly asserted that he was led into infidelity
because he saw that the Jewish people never had fulfilled and
never could fulfill the prophecies of the Old Testament. In 1898
B. Fay Mills, the one-time Spirit-filled evangelist, said, "In
the fourth place, the prophecies of the Old Testament (to Israel)
have not been realized. Today," he says, "the Bible is no more
inspired than the Koran."
     "The Lord of Hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have
thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have proposed, so
shall it stand."--Isa.14:24.
     Prof. Rawlinson, in his "Homiletics" on the above text,
says: "It is weakness on the part of man to need any confirmation
of a promise which God makes. When He condescends to swear that
his promise shall hold good, it does not really add to the
certainty of the thing promised, since the certainty was absolute
from the first. But man is so accustomed to mistrust his fellows
that he will even mistrust God, as though with him were
'variableness or shadow of turning.'" And yet this same Prof.
Rawlinson when writing of the ten-tribed Kingdom of Israel, says:
"They ceased to exist." It is painful to find men who will speak
so highly of God at one time and so belittle him in regard to his
promises to Israel. Well may the Lord say, "Thus have they
despised my people, that they should be no more a nation before

     The Rev. Baring Gould tells us that "God's first purpose has
been partially frustrated. The church has taken Israel's place as
the body."
     Dr. Ladd, in "The Doctrine of Scripture," Vol. 1, page 442,
says: "The Christian church has taken the place of the Jew to
receive in different form the substance of the salvation which
they expected for themselves. The Christian church is the true
Israel, the seed of Abraham, the inheritor and recipient of the
Messianic prophecies."

     Opinions, similar to these, are held generally throughout
the Christian church; while others hold that we are a sort of
modern Israel of whom the Bible is silent, and yet both schools
appropriate to Christianity all the good things which are
promised to the Lord's chosen people, and pile all the evil
things upon the Jews. As if the Lord were guilty of making
promises to one people and fulfilling them to another.
     To be in harmony with the facts, Dr. Ladd should have
defined the situation as follows: "The Christian church is the
true Israel of God which has received, in the same form and
substance, that salvation which the Jews refused, for it is
composed of men who are born of the spirit and who belong to the
material Israel, the seed of Abraham, the inheritors and
recipients of the Messianic prophecies, upon whom lighted the
Divine word-he whom the Jews rejected."
     In the chapter on the heraldry of Israel and the Saxons, we
explained that the Lion, the young Ox, and the Eagle were the
camp standards of Israel. But we gave no explanation concerning
"The Man," which was also one of these four camp standards. The
reference to the man in Ezekiel 1:10 cites us to Numbers, 2:10,
which reads: "On the south side shall be the standard of the camp
of Reuben." Concerning these symbols, Dr. Seiss says: "Jewish
writers tell us that the standard of each tribe of Israel took
the color of the stone which represented it in the High Priest's
breastplate, and that there was wrought upon each a particular
figure-a lion for Judah, a young ox for Ephraim, a man for
Reuben, and an eagle for Dan. These were the representative
tribes, and all the rest were marshaled under these four
standards (Num. ii); --Judah, on the east, with Issachar and
Zebulon; Reuben, on the south, with Simeon and Gad; Ephraim on
the west, with Manasseh and Benjamin; and Dan, on the north, with
Asher and Naphtali. In the center of this quadrangular encampment
was the tabernacle of God, with four divisions of Levites forming
an inner encampment around it. It was thus that Israel was
marched through the wilderness, under the four banners of the
lion, the young ox, the man, and the flying eagle. These were
their ensigns, their guards, their coverings, the symbols of
power by which they were protected and guided. They were parts of
that divine and heavenly administration which led them forth from
bondage, preserved them in the wilderness, and finally settled
them in the promised land."   
     These facts were undoubtedly known to the compilers of our
reference Bibles, hence the references from Ezekiel's vision to
the outward, material and earthly aspect of the people to whom
Ezekiel was sent, for he was sent to the ten-tribed kingdom, and
remained among them seven days. (See former chapter.)

     We know of no Old Testament Scriptures which will show why
the ensign of Reuben was a man except that the name Reuben means
"Behold a son," or "See ye a son." Genesis 29:32 settles that
forever. A son presupposes a man. The sons of Benjamin were the
men of Benjamin, as we have shown. Also, a son of Israel
is a man of Israel. It is certainly fitting that the ensign of
Reuben should have been a man, for he was the firstborn of
Israel. An expression like this: "Who raised up this righteous
man from the east?" as applied to the nation of Israel, may have
had some reference to the ensign of the man of Reuben. But, if
this be so, it would be next to an impossibility to trace it
positively, for the word man is in such general use that, should
we undertake it, we should soon get lost in the mazes.
     But we are sure of this one thing, namely: that the ensign
of that first-born of Israel was a type of another first-born, of
whom the prophet declares, "Unto US A SON is born, and my people
Israel, even Ephraim, shall know." Also, when this son of Abraham
was led out to be slain for the sins of that people, Pilate said:
"Behold the MAN."
     Joseph inherited the first-born blessing which Reuben
forfeited and the ensign of the cross in the hands of the people
who are the inheritors of the blessings of the Gospel of the
grace of the Son of God, declared, in the arbitrary language of
signs, "Behold the man." Thus it seems that the "Double Portion"
of Joseph was a type of his double blessing, i. e., the blessing
of the Abrahamic Birthright and the Gospel of Grace, for they
certainly are the recipients of both.
     It is for this reason that the Lord says: "They,"
Joseph-Israel, "shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in
their land they shall possess the Double (i. e., two portions in
the land): everlasting joy shall be unto them ... And their seed
shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the
people; all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are
the seed which the Lord hath blessed."--Isa.61:7-9.
     This word double gives that whole prophecy in the context to
Joseph. The next verse is as follows: "I will greatly rejoice in
the Lord; my soul shall be joyful in my God for he hath clothed
me with the garments o f salvation, he hath covered me with the
robe o f righteousness, and as a bridegroom decketh himself with
ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels."
     Truly "God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean
heart." Among that people who received "grace in the wilderness"
none may have a clean heart except those who trust the blood of
atonement; i. e., the blood of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who
taketh away the sin of the world.
     Prior to the crucifixion of this man, this first-born Son of
God, Caiaphas, in the heat of discussion concerning the interests
of their nation, said: "Ye know nothing at all, nor consider that
it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people,
and that the whole nation perish not. And thus spake he not o f
himself: but being high priest that year, he (unconsciously)
prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; and not for
that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one
the children o f God that were scattered abroad." 
     The children of God that were scattered abroad at that time
were the ten tribes of the Birthright kingdom of Israel, and we
say, without the possibility of being successfully contradicted,
that the restoration o f Israel is in the atonement, and that
Jesus not only died to fulfill Isa.53:8, but also that he might
perform that good thing which he had promised unto the house of
Israel and to the house of Judah; i. e., the gathering, the
return, the restoration of his chosen people, with all its
glorious results.
     This is why Paul said, "And now I stand and am judged for
the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers: unto which
promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night,
HOPE TO COME. For which hope's sake, King Agrippa, I am accused
of the Jews." (Acts 26:6-7.) This is also why he says, "Now we
beseech you, brethren, by the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ,
and by our gathering together unto Him." It was because this
restoration is all through the words of Moses and the prophets,
and because Jesus had died to accomplish it, that, after his
resurrection, and just before his ascension, the last question
which his apostles ask is, "Lord, wilt thou at this time restore
again the kingdom to Israel?" He did not tell them that there was
to be no restoration. He simply told them that they were not to
know the times or seasons which the Father hath put in his own
power. Later they understood that it was to come, with the second
coming of Christ, at which time he is to gather Israel, and reign
over the house of Jacob forever.
     Thus, on the day of Pentecost, when men out of every nation
under heaven were assembled together, Peter said: "Men and
brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David,
that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us
unto this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God
had sworn with an oath unto him that of the fruit of his loins,
according to the flesh, he would RAISE UP Christ. to sit on his
throne; he, seeing this before, spake of the resurrection o f
Christ."  (Acts 2:29-31.)
     According to this reasoning, David did not expect Christ to
sit on his throne until after he shall have been raised from the
dead, and we know that he is not on David's throne now. He is
sitting at the right hand of God on his throne, for "Him hath God
exalted with his right hand to be a Prince (a Prince is a coming
king) and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and
forgiveness of sins." (Acts 5:30) Hence, Peter, after telling the
Jews that this Prince whom they had killed, was both Lord and
Christ, very kindly says, "And now, brethren, I wot that through
ignorance ye did it (God help Christians of today to be thus, or
even more charitable), as did also your rulers. But those things,
which God before had shewed by the mouth of all his prophets,
that Christ should SUFFER, he hath so fulfilled." Thus we see,
that the apostles only claimed, for others of them were with
Peter, that those things which were written concerning the
sufferings of Christ were fulfilled. So, Peter continues his
discourse, saying, "And he (God) shall send Jesus Christ, which
before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must retain until
the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by
the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began." (Acts

     Mark that, please! "All things which God hath spoken by the
mouth of  all his holy prophets," and nothing else, but surely
all that which God hath spoken. Just that, nothing more, nothing
less, can vindicate. Nothing more is necessary, but it is
absolutely essential for the complete vindication of God and his
Christ that all which God hath spoken be so fulfilled.
     All the suffering phases concerning this rejected one, as
recorded by all the prophets, have in like manner been fulfilled.
The despised and rejected Man of Sorrows came. The oppressed,
afflicted and grief-stricken man with the marred visage has been
smitten. The stripe-beaten back has been bared and has borne its
heavy load. The prison, the judgment hall, the trial, the
mocking, jeering, insulting, spitting, raging mob are come and
gone. The dumb Lamb, whose heart broke and melted like wax within
him, has been led to the slaughter. In company with criminals, he
has poured out his soul unto death, and the mutilated body has
been laid away in its foretold rich man's grave. But that grave
could not hold its holy treasure, for his prophet Father had
said, "Neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see

     These and many other things which were foretold by the
prophets he hath so fulfilled; but Jesus, himself, said: "Think
not that I am come to destroy the law (word), or the prophets: I
am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (these). For verily I say
unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall
in no wise pass from the law ("to the law and to the testimony,
if they speak not according to thy word, it is because there is
no light in them"), till all be fulfilled."

     The heaven and the earth are still held in their places, all
that is written in the prophets has not yet been fulfilled, but
IT SHALL BE. For Gabriel said to Mary, "Thou shalt conceive in
thy womb (she did), and bring forth A SoN (she did), and shalt
call his name JESUS (that was his name). He shall be great
(Prophet, High Priest, Prince, and Saviour), and shall be called
the Son of the Highest (God, himself, opened heaven, and said,
"This is my beloved Son"); and the Lord God shall give unto him
the throne of his father David [that throne has not yet been
given to him], and he shall reign ["Upon the throne of David, and
upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment
and justice (elements which it now lacks) from henceforth even
forever (the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this) over
the house of Jacob forever and of his kingdom there shall be no
end." Thus we see that these promises concerning David's greater
Son were fulfilled only in part at his first coming. When Jesus
comes the second time, he will come as SHILOH. Unto him shall the
people gather, and he will then sit on the throne of his father
David, and reign over the house of Jacob forever. For it is
written: "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will
raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and
prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in THE EARTH."
     It is of the fact of this coming King for the kingdom of
David that, when the apostles and elders of the newly founded
church were in counsel, James spoke "Men and brethren, hearken
unto me: Simeon hath declared how God at first did visit the
Gentiles, to take out of them a people (the remnant of grace) for
his name (i. e., that they might become his bride). And to this
agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, After this I
will return, and will build again the tabernacle (royal
dwellings, and palaces) of David, which are fallen down (those on
Mt. Zion); and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will
set it up." (Acts 15:13-16.)

     Jesus died to confirm the promises made to the fathers, not
to transfer them. "He that keepeth thee will not slumber. Behold,
he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep." (Ps.121:
