Open Letter to the New Zealand Government
18 July 2007
Rt Hon Helen Clark
Dear Ms Clark,
I write this letter out of great concern and love for our country and people. Grave dangers are upon us which threaten our nation, economy, freedoms and way of life. Dangers which increase daily because we continue to turn away from God and His perfect laws toward immorality and lawlessness. Putting pleasure, self interest and material gain before all else and each other. Forgetting our origin, responsibility, destiny and inheritance as God's people (Israel). It is my hope that as Prime Minister, you will understand these things and call the nation to return to our God (the God of Israel). To re-implement, administer and follow His laws so we can again be assured of His blessings and protection before it’s too late.
We have forgotten that our great nation, like other Anglo-Saxon-Celtic countries (i.e. Britain, America, Canada, South Africa and Australia) was founded upon the very commandments, statutes and judgments given by God to the Israelites at Mt Sinai. The English Common Law, Magna Carta and Bill of Rights etc inherited from England broadly based, though imperfectly on God's law given through Moses. Laws if administered and followed guaranteed us great national blessings including wealth and prosperity beyond our wildest dreams. Peace, happiness, general wellbeing and perfect health. Justice, freedom and liberty. Just government; a prosperous economy; taxes capped at a maximum of 10-20% and only applied to net earnings with all personal property exempted. Protection of the individual, family and possessions (i.e. no inflation) and sustainable agricultural and farming practices to name a few. A people free from all insecurities, fears and worries of life. Free from unhappiness, sickness, disease, poverty and want.
Instead of continuing to administer and follow God's laws and obtaining the above, we have chosen a different path and as a consequence are losing all sense of honour, justice and equality. Our freedoms, general wellbeing, health and prosperity all diminished. Our citizens and families no longer protected. Possessions confiscated by inflation and unjust taxes. Our economy on the brink of collapse under a mountain of debt, entangled by financial powers demanding their tribute. Families and marriages broken everyday. Justice compromised with new laws created daily and old ones repealed. No one guaranteed of a right verdict, while the system places the rights of the criminal before the victim. Freedom diminished by corrupt and dishonest governments ever growing in size and control. Our parliament acting in a spirit of ambition, self interest and oppression under a Party system where MPs are under pressure from the Party Whip to give their allegiance to the Party, rather than the people. The 'Anti Smacking' Bill a prime example. Surely even our democracy is being eroded.
It's time we recognised and acknowledged who we are (modern day Israel); who our God is and as God's people, our responsibility and destiny to administer all His laws and as individuals to follow them so we might finally obtain all God's blessings. This is a fact since we the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic people fulfil in our history every mark the prophets of the bible wrote Israel would be identified by in the future. This is also confirmed by archaeological findings, historical records, state documents (i.e. Scottish Declaration of Independence signed at Arbroath in 1320) and our people sharing with the Israelites the same racial characteristics (i.e. appearance), language (derived from Hebrew), names, traits, customs, traditions, emblems and heraldry (e.g. British Coat of Arms incorporates at least 10 symbols of Israel including the lion, unicorn, scarlet thread of Zarah and the harp of David and carries the words 'God and my Right' or Birthright). Even our flag with its triple cross we call the 'Union Jack' incorporates the national colours of Israel and originates from the name 'Union of Jacob', since Jack is derived from Jacques in French, Jacobus in Latin and Jacob in Hebrew. Knowledge of our origin, though lost during the dark and Middle Ages has again become known and accepted by many since the 1500s including royalty, US Presidents, leading statesmen, church leaders and common folk alike. Even Rt Hon William Massey, Prime Minister of NZ between 1912 and 1925 understood and believed we were Israelites.
Providing a brief background, God established and organised His Kingdom on earth at Mount Sinai when He chose the Israelites to be His people, gave them His laws (Ex 19:5-20:20; 2 Sam 7;22-24, Dan 2:34-44; Luke 1: 31-33) and became their King (1 Sam 12:12) after the people of Israel agreed to do all that the Lord had said and administer His laws. Thereby confirming the unconditional covenant made with Abraham (Gen 17:3-8 and Jer 31:35-37) which was reconfirmed with Isaac and then Jacob (Gen 35: 10-12). In doing so they were to be blessed, and in being so, act as an example to the other nations of what might be expected if they also implemented and followed God's laws. This they began to do, but later our forefathers departed from His laws and as punishment the Northern Kingdom of Israel was taken captive by the Assyrians around 721 BC (2 Kings 17).
To avoid confusion it must be noted that the nation of Israel had split into two kingdoms long before this captivity, so the Northern Kingdom of Israel should not be confused with the Southern Kingdom of Judah which is dealt with separately in the bible. Nor should it be confused with the Jews whose name only applies to the very small remnant of 42,360 of the Tribe of Judah who returned to the land of Israel about 538BC after their captivity in Babylon becoming known as the Nation of the Jews (Ezra 2:1, 64). Many of the Southern Kingdom either choose not to return to Jerusalem (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, Book 11, Chap 1, v3) or had been taken captive earlier by the Assyrians around 721BC along with the Northern Kingdom of Israel as confirmed by the bible (2 Kings 18:13-17) and ancient Assyrian Cylinder records.
Although, the Northern Kingdom never returned to the land of Israel (Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, Book 11, Chap 5, v2), they were not forgotten, for God had longed planned this and would keep all His promises and in the later days redeem and bless His people again. The prophet Nathan had announced earlier in King David's time that they were to be planted and established in another land which they did not know outside Palestine. Where they could dwell alone and safely, protected from their enemies (2 Sam 7:10-11). So when opportunity came they left Assyria and travelled westward (2 Esdras 13:40-45) across central and southern Europe, becoming known by many names including the Khumri, Sacae, Scythians, Goths, Picts, Scots, Viking, Angles, Jutes, Saxons and Normans. All different names for the Israelites, linked together by the black Obelisk of Shalmaneser, the Behistun rock in Persia and other monuments and many historians including Herodotus, Pliny, Ptolemy and Sharon Turner.
They would finally settle in the 'isles of the sea' (British Isles), north and west of Palestine (Isa 24:15; 49:1, 12; 59:19; Jer 3:12-18, 23:8, 31:7-8, 10). Note that in Hebrew the same word is used for both 'sea' and 'west', so 'isles of the sea' should be translated 'isles of the west' since an island is known to be in the sea by default and no word in scripture is wasted. Notice also that the Tribe of Dan had a long tradition of naming places after the name of their father Dan (Judges 18:11-12,26-29; Jos 19:47). This can still easily be seen today by looking at any map of Europe or Great Britain and seeing the trail left behind on their wanderings westward with hundreds of place names which incorporate the name 'Dan' and its derivatives Den, Din, Don and Dun e.g. Danube, Dneiser, London, Denmark (mark of Dan) etc. All as prophesied for Dan was to “be a serpent by the way” (Gen 49:17), leaving their trail as they migrated.
In their new home, the Israelites were to be called after the name Isaac (Gen 21:12; Rom 9:7) i.e. Saxons (sons of Sac) because the I is dropped since in Hebrew it is rarely pronounced. They were to also lose the name Israel and be known under a new name (Isa 65:15) called great, 'Great' Britain (Gen 12:2). They would also speak a new language (Isa 28:11). The word 'British' appropriately means 'covenant man' in Hebrew and is almost spelt the same in Hebrew (Brith-ish). It’s interesting on reaching their destination they would start to call themselves the 'covenant people' in Hebrew and just one example showing the remarkably close affinity the Saxon/Celtic/Welsh/English languages have with the Hebrew language. On its own, a strong proof of our origin. Not only many actual words either directly or indirectly rooted in the Hebrew language, but also sharing a similar grammatical and idiomatic construction and appears to be the only languages into which Hebrew can almost literally be translated.
These facts have been agreed by many leading past and present international language experts including William Tyndale who was fluent in eight languages (i.e. Hebrew, Greek and English) and first to translate and print the bible into English with much of the King James Bible and other versions based on his translation. Dr. Terry Blodgett, chairman of the Southern Utah State College Language Department received international attention in 1982 as a result of his research, which discovered "a major Hebrew influence" in the roots of the English language. Hebrew language scholar, Dr. Isaac Elchanan Mozeson who taught the English language at Yeshiva University, sighted over 5,000 English words with a Semitic origin and after ten years of original research in this subject concluded "that English and Hebrew are profoundly connected”. James Cowles Pritchard who was called 'the founder of modern anthropology' and William H. Worrell, Associate Professor of Semitics at the University of Michigan came to the same conclusion.
Later, finding this island too small (Isa 49:19-20) they migrated west (America and West Indies), east (India), north (Canada) and south (South Africa, Australia and NZ). Fulfilling the prophesy of Gen 28:14 in the exact same order. Even the separation of Britain and America was prophesied to occur before the British started their second phase of migration which brought them to South Africa, Australia and NZ (Isa 49:19-21). Through these migrations they inherited and colonised the desolate places, islands afar off and ends of the earth (Isa 49:8; 54:3; Jer 31:8, 10). Note that both the prophets Isaiah and Jeremiah address Israel as residing in the Isles (islands) of the sea (or west), coast lands and ends of the earth in latter days. They would later possess the gates of their enemies (the British Empire at its height held over 30 strategic water ways/sea gates including Rock of Gibraltar, Malta, Suez Canal, Singapore, Hong Kong etc) (Gen 22:17) and become the chief of nations (Deut 26:19, Amos 6:1) as is still in evidence today. A great nation and a company (commonwealth) of nations (Gen 35:10-11; 48:19) with its monarchy still intact.
With almost all the monarchy's of Europe destroyed in recent centuries the fact that the British monarchy still remains is directly in fulfilment of God's promise to King David that he would never cease to have one of his descendants sitting on his throne and ruling over his Kingdom. (Jer 33:17-26 and 2 Sam 7:12-16). A real throne and kingdom on earth. According to Irish and Welsh historical records; monumental inscriptions; ancient poems and traditions (Annals of the Four Masters) and in fulfilment of prophecy (Eze 17) a Hebrew prophet named Ollam Folla (or Jeremiah) and his scribe Baruch arrived in Ireland from Egypt (Jer 1:7-19, 43:6,7, 44:14-28) around 583 BC, having escaped the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians. They came with a very important 'stone' and a Hebrew Princess named Tea Tephi or Tamar Tephi (the Tender Twig of Eze 17) who was one of King Zedekiah's daughters (King of the Southern Kingdom of Judah and last king of Kings David's line to rule in Palestine). Tea Tephi later married the Irish King Eochaidh, ensuring the monarchy continued after King Zedekiah's death in 599 BC (Jer 52:10-11). Genealogies of the British Royal family have proved their ancestry back through this line to King David.
This is further proven by the many customs, traditions, emblems, symbols, ceremonies and laws of succession (Num 27:8) shared with the Kings of Israel detailed in the bible. One example being the Israelites custom to crown their Kings on or by one particular stone (2 Kings 11:14 and 23:3) and the people shout “God save the King” (1 Sam 10:24; 2 Sam 16:16; 2 Kings 11:12). This is still our custom today with all the Kings and Queens of Great Britain (Ireland, Scotland, England) being crowned upon the same stone for 2500 yrs dating back to 583 BC when Tea Tephi married the Irish King Eochaidh. Edward the First had a coronation chair built in 1296 AD to accommodate this stone which still sits in Westminster Abbey today, with Queen Elizabeth II crowned on it in 1953. And yes they shouted “God save the Queen” just like our forefathers before us. This stone the English call “Jacob's Pillow” with its battered surface, large crack and two iron rings attached almost worn through, all bear witness to its long migrations. Wear which must have occurred long before 583 BC during Israel's long wanderings in the desert since historians know it’s only been moved 3 times since then, which is in fulfilment of the prophecy that the throne of David would be overturned 3 times (Eze 21:25-27). Israel to Ireland in 583 BC; Ireland to Scotland in 506 AD and lastly Scotland to England in 1603 AD where it will remain “until he come whose right it is; and I will give it Him” when Christ comes to sit upon the throne of David (Luke 1: 31-33).
Christ commanded his disciples to go not to the gentiles, but to the 'lost sheep' of Israel (Matt 10:5-7) to preach the good news of the Kingdom of God (clearly not a spiritual kingdom, but a literal kingdom on earth). Christ surely knew where His 'lost sheep' or lost Israelites were to be found since there is nothing hidden from Him and He had said He was also “sent only to the lost sheep of Israel” (Matt 15:24) and previously spoken through the prophets that He Himself would search for His sheep and after finding them, bring them out of the nations and look after them in their own land (Eze 34: 7-31). At that time the lost Israelites had long since left Palestine as stated previously and were to be found elsewhere as confirmed by James (James 1:1). Since Christ was sending His disciples to preach to the lost Israelites, He must have told them where they were to be found which appears to have been in Britain since the Christian religion was brought directly to Britain from Jerusalem by Joseph of Arimathea and other disciples soon after, if not before the crucification. There are many proofs and certainly a great deal of tradition that the apostle Simon and later St Paul visited Britain along with others too.
It was Britain who built the world's first ever church (Glastonbury, England around 38 AD) before taking Christianity to Rome. Facts confirmed by many records, including the rulings of the early councils of the Roman Catholic church. It was Britain who became the first ever Christian people and nation in 156 AD by Act of its government (British Triads) (Hos 1:10; Isa 9:2; 44:3-5; 45:17-19; 45:25; 48:20; 49:3) and throughout her history has always been a great missionary people having taken Christianity around the globe (Isa 27:6; 43:21; 44:3-5; Mark 16:15 and Matt 7:20) not to mention the translation, printing and distribution of the bible itself which continues to this day. Did not Christ tell the Jews that the Kingdom of God would be taken from them and given to a people who would produce its fruit (Matt 21:43).
What other fruits have we the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic people produced? The British Empire along with its American offshoot became the greatest empire ever established and surely the fifth world empire of Daniel 2:34-45. An empire covering vast distances, lands and people of many races, languages and cultures spreading to the ends of the world (Isa 54:3) with both Britain and America still the chief of nations today (Deut 26:19, Amos 6:1). An empire not won by might or force alone or ruled by a dictator like all others before it, but one based on law and order, peace, justice, kindness, liberty and religious tolerance (Lev 19:33-34). This was in line with Christ's words “My Kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36) meaning not established through war and bloodshed, oppression and hatred since the Greek word here translated 'world' is 'kosmos' meaning arrangement or order of things. Although not without its imperfections like all human institutions. Surely we have been a blessing to all nations (Gen 18:18) with all colonies established endowed with self government. No other colony established before it by any other nation or power was endowed with these same rights. We were also the first peoples to abolish the lucrative Trans Atlantic slave trade in 1807 and then throughout the British Empire in 1833 (Isa 49:8-9; 58:6) freeing the oppressed and breaking their yoke and later adopting the policy of free trade in 1846 throughout the empire. Opening our markets to all and our gates to all foreigners (Lev 19:33). Did not NZ carry on this tradition by accepting the Maori people as equal partners and the first in the world to give women the vote? What other people have given so much freely to the world without seeking anything in return.
God said Israel, His 'Stone Kingdom' (our royalty ruling on a stone) would be established and become the fifth world empire as above and never be destroyed. Crushing the other empires and bringing them to an end (Dan 2: 34-45; Jer 51:20). Throughout our history, the British, Commonwealth and US nations have always been God's battle axe (Jer 51:20) defeating and crushing stronger nations and empires than ours, with our smaller armies (Lev 26:8; Deut 20:1-4), but powerful navy (Num 24:7). Remaining undefeated (Isa 54:17) and still enduring today. As an example Philip of Spain and his 'Invincible Armada' and Napoleon and his 'Grand Army' both destroyed by Britain. In modern times, it was the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic nations who stood almost alone against overwhelming odds to defeat the German Kaiser and his allies in WWI and then against Hitler and his allies Italy and Japan in WWII, to free Europe, the pacific and the Middle East. A blessing indeed. Wasn't the Ottoman Empire also destroyed by the British alone when General Allenby took Jerusalem in 1917 in fulfilment of the prophesy that it would be Israel who laid vengeance upon Edom or Turkey (Eze 25:13-14) thereby claiming our inheritance to the Holy Land. Was it not our people again who stood against the Russian Empire and spread of communism and now terrorism worldwide so all mankind might be free and secure from despotism and fear.
Throughout our history we have also been blessed with great wealth and abundance (Deut 8:18 and 33:13-17) and especially known worldwide for our crops, lamb and beef (Deut 28:3-14) all as God promised. Surely we will be known by our fruits as the Lord Jesus said and if we as the Anglo-Saxon-Celtic people meet all God's identity marks and promises made to and for Israel, then we must be Israel. What other nation, empire or people still in existence today (God promised the descendants of Israel would never cease to be a nation before Him, Jer 31:35-37), can claim to be God's servant people? A Christian people and nation living in the isles of the sea, coast lands and ends of the earth and meeting all the above identify marks? A great nation and company of nations with our monarchy still in place; the chief of nations bearing the necessary fruit and being a blessing to mankind?
What a great shame we have fallen so far. Forgetting who we are, our God, our history, our purpose, destiny and inheritance. Having brought justice, freedom and liberty to the world, we are now losing it ourselves at home and becoming more and more disrespected abroad for our actions and hypocrisy. Once the creditor of nations, but since forgetting it is God who gives us the ability to produce wealth we have become the biggest of debtors (Deut 8:18).
How can we expect anything different? If our forefathers were punished for turning away, won't we also be punished since we as His people today, are still bound to administer His good and perfect laws and are no longer? For like the Israelites of old we too have rejected God and altered many of His laws so God's blessing and protection can no longer be assured. This is very worrying since we are surely on the brink of economic collapse under a mountain of debt and face enemies which grow stronger by the day. And what have we gained as each successive NZ government sort treaties with our enemies; allowed foreign powers to influence our polices and finances while pushing us closer and closer toward Marxism and Fabian socialism where our freedoms, liberty, property and way of life are all under serious treat? Was the socialist model which Russia and other communistic countries enjoyed such a blessing and benefit to its people, that we too should slowly incorporate its ideals?
Like NZ's other past governments, the Labour government will be held accountable by God for leading His people astray. While your government is still in power, you have the opportunity to turn the country back to our God and administer His laws, before it’s too late. Or must we wait until we are compelled to return to Him as prophesied when we face great difficulties and hardship never before experienced as a nation and people. Time is short and we are certainly living in the last days.
God has foretold that in the last days when we are in grave danger, we will remember Him and cry out to our God and in our repentance, He will deliver and restore us (Eze 39:21-29) and all the world will know that we are His people. At that time Christ will return to earth to sit upon the Throne of David (His throne) and rule over the House of Jacob (us), (Luke 1: 31-33) that we might finally have justice, equity, freedom, protection, general wellbeing, happiness, health, peace and prosperity in our land.
