I am often asked questions regarding the doctrine and history regarding Christian/Kingdom Identity. So I will prepare a base level explaination of the history regarding the migration of Northern Israel to Modern Europe. Starting at 721 B.C
Firstly you must be aware, that the 12 tribes of Israel, the descendants of Jacob. Split into two kingdoms. The Kingdom of Israel and the Kindom of Judah. Judah the southern-most kindom, into which Jesus Christ was born – obviously did not migrate to Europe during this same time period, However the nothern Kingdom of Israel did. 2 Kings 18:11 Reads: And the king of Assyria did carry away Israel unto Assyria, and put them in Halah and in the Habor by the river of Gozan and in the cities of the Medes.
The Israelite people taken into Assyria now took on different names, when recorded by greeks or the edomites of the regions to the North. For example, Assyrian historical stone writings found by archeologists at Nimrud refer to the Israelites as “Khumri”. Later Assyrian cuneiform writings in the form of frontier post reports, written around 707 BC refer to these same people as “Gamera” or “Gimira”
A later Assyrian tablet recorded around 679 B.C reported that the Assyrian army defeated the Gimira with large numbers of Israelites escaping to the shores of the Black Sea. Greek records refer to these people as “Kimmeroil” which is translated into English as “Cimmerian” Greek historical recordsings indicate that the Cimmerians captured the Kingdom of Phrygia in 695 BC and later Lydia in 662 BC. As a result the Lydians drove them out of Asia Minor at roughly 600 B.C pushing the israelites into the Carpathian regions.
When the Assyrians were under attack by both the Medes and Babylonians, the main body of Israelies in Media accepted an aliance with the Assyrian King. Esarhaddon – this permitted the Israelites to establish colonies in Sacasene in the North and Bactria in the east. After Assyria was defeated in 612 B.C these two colonies came under pressure from the Babylonians: Causing the main body of Israelites in Sacasene to cross the Araxes River and pass northward through the Dariel Pass in the Caucasus Mountains and occupy the steppe regions of Southern Russia, They then became known to the greeks as the “Scythians”
2 Esdras 13:40-42
Those are the ten tribes, which were carried away prisoners out of their own land in the time of Osea the king, whom Salmanasar the king of Assyria led away captive, and he carried them over the waters, and so came they into another land.
But they took this counsel among themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the heathen, and go forth into a further country, where never mankind dwelt, That they might there keep their statutes, which they never kept in their own land.
Between 539 B.C and 500 B.C during the rebuilding of the temple at Jersualem by the tribe of Judah that had been left behind in the middle east. The Scythians who had been pushed through the Darial Pass began moving westward and came into collision with the Cimmerians, who had earlier moved around the west of the Black Sea around 600 B.C. The Cimmerians were consequentially defeated and pushed north and west. A small group of them moved into the regions of the Baltic where the Romans called them by the abbreviated name of “Cimbri”. The main body of the Cimmerians however migrated and scattered into the region known today as Germany and France between 500 and 450 B.C, becoming known as the Celts and Gauls
By the end of the 4th Century B.C, the Scythians who we now know as Israelites in South Russia came under attack by a people called “Sarmations” and were driven north toward the Baltic regions pushing the “Cimbri” ahead of them, west to Jutlan and the coasts of Holland and France. As the Celts spread west and north across France, some moved across the English Channel into Britain, about 390 B.C one group invaded Italy and sacked Rome. Around 280 B.C others reached Greece and as they migrated back into Asia Minor. the Greeks knew them as “Galations” this would indicate St. Pauls letter to the “Galations” were to his kindred Israelites.
To prevent confusion between the “Sarmations” who now occupied the region of “Scythia” and the original “Scythians” – the Romans introduced the name “German” for the genuine “Scythians” ( “Germanus” being the latin word for “genuine” ). Thus in roman records, the name “Scythian” was dropped in favor of German. The Cimbri were finally driven out of their area by the German Scythians. A residue of that group entered Spain, where the main body retreated to Italy to be slaughtered by the Roman legion. The Cimbri that escaped to Spain became known as the “Iberes” ( the Gaelic name for “Hebrews” ) – they then continued to move into Ireland as “Scots” and those that remained in Spain became known as Basques, and those in France known as Bretons.
Naturally history will continue to tell the story of how the Scythian Germans as they grew divided themselves up into different cultural groups such as Goths, Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Danes and Vikings. Vandals, Lombards, Franks, Burgundians and Ostrogoths filling the void left by the exodus of Celts into Britain.
Whilst onto the topic of the Celtic Migration into Britain, the Scottish Declaration of Independence leaves a great deal of clues regarding the Israelite origins of the European Race. Written in 1320 it reads:
We know Most Holy Father and Lord, and from the chronicles and books of the ancients gather, that among other illustrious nations, our’s, to wit, the nation of the Scots, has been distinguished by many honours; which passing from the greater Scythia through the Mediterranean Sea and Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) and sojourning in Spain (Iberia – Heberia – the Hebrew’s land) among most savage tribes through a long course of time, could nowhere be subjugated by any people however barbarous; and coming thence one thousand two hundred years after the outgoing of the People of Israel, they by many victories and infinite toil, acquired for themselves the possessions in the West which they now hold……..In their kingdom one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, no stranger intervening, have reigned….
