1. When was The Stone of destiny stolen?
2. The ancient Irish annals do not exist.
3. America cannot be Manasseh.
4. Do you support the Neo-Nazi Identity Movement?
5. Did any British realize that their blessings came from God, and their responsibility to serve Him?
6. Is the Blarney Stone part of the Stone of destiny?
7. Could the identification of Jeremiah with Ollam Folla be mistaken?
The "ancient Irish annals" to which the B.I
theoreticians refer, do not exist. At least, no one has ever found them (this
has been pointed out by the .... Ministries).
I hope you don't think I am mocking British-Israelism, which I consider a
very valuable theory, an ideal building block for those that are interested
in prophecy. However, I think that there is no way that the claim that
America is Manasseh can stand.
By preaching that the USA and British Commonwealth are modern-day descendants
(as nations) of Joseph's sons Manasseh and Ephraim aren't you propagating the
racist views of neo-Nazis such as the "Christian Identity"

Here is an excerpt from a sermon entitled "True Imperialism", delivered by John H. Jowett, London, ca. 1900. Printed as Chapter 2 of "Apostolic Optimism", London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1901
"Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knewest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee, because of the Lord thy God, for He hath glorified thee" (Isa. 55:5). What does that mean? It means that a true and glorified national life is to create a true and glorified Imperialism. "Nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God."
That is the true imperialism - empire by moral and spiritual sovereignty, allurement and dominion by the fascinating radiance of a pure and sanctified life. "Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising." What is the vulgar imperialism of to-day? It is empire by grab. It is expansion by coercion. It is aggrandizement by the power of the sword. Mark the contrast. "Nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the Lord thy God." Such is to be the imperial gravitation of a people exalted and inspired by the purifying and energizing presence of the Eternal God.
This, I repeat, is the true imperialism, the imperialism which I covet for my nation; the glory which constitutes a fadeless dignity; empire - not by the aid of Maxim guns, but by great and heartening evangels proceeding from a redeemed and glorified people. When are we going to learn that this is the shining goal of all worthy national ambition? The mission of a truly great people is to be "a witness to the peoples, a leader and commander to the peoples" (Isa. 55:4),
a "witness," ceaselessly reiterating the glad tidings of the eternal love which she herself has proved in the power of her own redemption;
a "leader," a pathfinder, going out among the benighted peoples who are groping blindly for the way that leads to liberty and light, and revealing unto them the road whose entrance-gate is the beginning of the gladsome dawn;
a "commander," commanding her willing and waiting servants to go here, there, and yonder, bearing her shining lines through all the earth, and her words to the end of the world.
"Thou shalt be called the restorer of paths to dwell in" (Isa 58:12). That is a glorious title, and it describes a glorious mission of a great nation which has "hearkened diligently" (Isa. 21:7) unto God, and has surrendered herself to a glad and invincible obedience. "Her soul shall live" (Isa. 55:3) and her life shall be "the light of men" (Matt. 5:16, John 1:4).
Is the Blarney Stone part of the Stone of destiny?
I have read various material that proves that Jeremiah was not Ollam Folla
and thus there is no evidence in the Irish annals to support the view that
Jeremiah travelled to Ireland with Zedekiah's daughters (see www.biblemysteries.com/library/jeremiah.cfm).
It seems that it is only a legend. Do you know of any evidence that proves
the knowledge of this legend in past centuries and the possibility of its
truth? I think that the evidence can only definitively prove that Jeremiah
with Baruch and Zedekiah's daughters travelled to Egypt. But from there the
evidence and history is really silent.
Question: The Stone of Destiny was stolen by Scots in 1950 , can you tell me what day that took place.
Reply: The Stone of Destiny was soon recovered after that theft, but it was recently returned to Scotland and is now in Edinburgh Castle, see www.aboutscotland.com/stone/destiny.html. I have not been able to obtain exact details of the 1950 theft. You could contact: http://www.alba.org.uk/liafail.html.
"Seven centuries after Edward the First marched triumphantly out of Scotland with the ancient symbol of Caledonian nationhood effectively tucked under his arm, the Stone of Destiny has crossed the border again, receiving an emotional homecoming in Edinburgh. The sandstone slab, also known as the Stone of Scone, was the seat for all Scottish kings. But in 1296, the English King Edward the First ordered it be seized and taken south, where it has been held since at Westminster Abbey. The Stone was incorporated into the English - now British - throne, and from the 13th century, kings and queens have been crowned on it.
"The fact that the Stone was not being returned to its natural home in Scone, a little north of Perth, is irksome to the Scots. Instead, it will be housed alongside the Honours of Scotland - effectively, Scotland's Crown Jewels - in Edinburgh Castle. Historians are rumbling that the Stone will never rest easy there "as it has no connection with Edinburgh at all". The Scottish Office responds briskly that it would be impossible to install the necessary level of security at Scone Palace, as it continues to be used as a private home by the Earl of Mansfield. So Edinburgh Castle it is, with all the trimmings that go with it. It is an emotional moment for Scots, at home and abroad.
"But while we might feel a satisfying glow that the Stone has come back to Caledonia, we will also find time for a wee grin as well. For the Stone came back in 1950, thanks to some daring young students from Glasgow University, who sneaked into Westminster Abbey in London and nicked it on Christmas morning. There were roadblocks set up across England; border patrols were stationed at the main crossings into Scotland; yet still the Stone made it north to Glasgow. For a moment, these thirsty students carried it out of the car and placed it on the bar of the Arlington Pub whilst they took a quick pint. Some historians argue the Stone should be displayed here, instead of Edinburgh! Within two weeks, the game was up, and the police were tipped off that the Stone could be found at Arbroath Abbey. The students, under enormous pressure, had decided to hand it back. Or did they? Stories abound across Scotland that the students had a replica made, and THAT was the one the police picked up in 1951. The "real" Stone, depending on which story you believe, is in a stonemason's yard in the west end of Glasgow, or part of the portal at a church in Dundee.
"Experts are studying the Stone to
see if it needs any restoration work done before going on public display on
November 30, 1996, St. Andrew's Day. And perhaps one of the first visitors
will be the one who quietly knows the truth, passed down from father to son
over the centuries. Perhaps this visitor knows that King Edward was the one
who was cheated; that he stole the wrong Stone; that the Stone of Destiny,
the real Stone of Scone, remains, to this day, on the Isle of Iona..."
"While standing and looking at the
Jacobs Stone for a long period of time in Westminster Abbey, a curator of the
museum, a lovely older woman, inquired about my prolonged interest in the
stone. I told her a little bit about our unusual theological ideas about the
stone, at which she surprised me in knowing of the USBC theory quite well.
Apparently every COG person who has ever been there has laid the theory on
her, as well as others. I asked her if there are any unusual legends or facts
about the stone. She said that there is a legend that the stone can actually
SPEAK! It is said that if a usurper to the thrown attempts to be crowned on
the chair that the stone will "Groan and Moan" and cry out
"NO!!!" It is stated that this has happened on at least a couple of
occasions, although the last was supposedly several hundred years ago."
[There is a similar legend about the stones of the 2nd Temple, which, according to Jewish legend, cried out at least 3 times against blatant injustice. It may have been to this that Jesus referred when He said: "The very stones would cry out."]
"I remember two years ago geochemical
analysis of the stone of Scone indicated that the rock was a (pelitic) schist
that has geochemical signature particular to Scotland (the highlands!?) and
not of origin in the land of Palestine."
In Jacob's Pillar, p.53, E. Raymond Capt
writes, "Dean Stanley, one-time custodian of the Stone , in his book
Memorials of Westminster Abbey, sums up its historical importance in these
words; "It is the one primevel monument which binds together the whole
Empire . The iron rings, the battered surface, the crack which has all but
rent its solid mass asunder, bear witness of the English Monarchy -- an
element of poetic, patriarchal, heathen times... carries back our thoughts
... a link which unites the Throne of England to the traditions of Tara and
