British Israelism

The British-Israel-World Federation

The Federation believes that Christ is their personal Saviour and Redeemer of the nation. They also believe that the descendants of the so-called “Lost Ten Tribes” of the Northern House of Israel are to be found in the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic and kindred peoples of today. They believe it can be shown that the Royal House of Britain is descended from King David.  The northern ten tribes of Israel eventually migrated to northwestern Europe, that the Anglo-Saxon peoples in particular are descendants of the Israelites, and that people should look for a fulfillment of biblical prophecies among these peoples.  As the Federation believes in the whole Bible it therefore believes the Covenants made between God and Abraham, Isaac and Jacob-Israel are everlasting and that the British nation plays an important part of God’s great plan for world order.

” Their name shall be great – “Great Britain” – and they shall be missionaries throughout the world: “And I will make thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”

(Genesis 12:2-3).
