How strange it is, that with all the definite and positive assurances in the Word of God promising Israel's continuance FOREVER as a Nation, there has not been any continued or persistent effort on the part of organized 'religion' to find them. Many have been blinded by the 'preachers' who believe that the little insignificant country in the middle east that call themselves Israel is the Israel of God. Some believe the lie taught by some unlearned TV preachers and other 'cemeteries' that it is these 'Jews' that are Gods chosen people. Very few know this is a lie, and that there is a vast difference between those that call themselves "Jews" and Israel. There IS a vast difference. They are separate peoples.

Another possible explanation for this blindness can be that it was God's will and purpose to hide them. While the Jews (some of whom are only a part of the House of Judah) occupy the stage, even naming their country "Israel", God works unhindered with and in "lost Israel", untill he has finished his predetermined work, and without them knowing that they were the people of the Book. Only as Israel's time of punishment had run out, with the whole of God's purposes at the point of complete fulfillment, is the identity of Israel to become known.

The blinders are coming off for some.

It is a matter of inspired record that God placed 'marks' on His people. Israel. During the Christian dispensation, lost Israel was to possess these marks of identification. So, then, if we can match these Biblically recorded marks to a people, we have found Israel, the people who God had selected to serve Him by being a channel of blessing to all mankind. These marks are many, and while the list of 40 at the beginning of this article is in no means complete or exhaustive, they constitute a chain of evidence utterly impossible for thinking individuals to ignore.

One race, and one race alone has all the marks. Nations within this race may have a portion of them, but the race as a whole has them all. With few exceptions Joseph (the birthright nation) was the recipient of them all. By inheritance, (See Gen 48:16-20) his two sons, Ephraim (Great Britain) and Manasseh (USA) will be found possessing them all !!

Although some Israelites remain in all the countries of the world, America is the homeland of the millions of the 13 tribes (one out of many) and thus is representative of the whole House of Jacob. We are thus bound by Israel's responsibilities; fulfilling Israel's destiny. The marks are on us everywhere: In our NAME; in our CONSTITUTION: in our SABBATH; in our INSTITUTIONS; in our PHILANTHROPHY; in our COMMERCE; in our WEALTH; in our MINES; in our AGRICULTURE; in our CHURCHES; in our MISSIONARY ENTERPRISES; in our ARMED FORCES; in our POSSESSION OF THE BIBLE; all these are 'birthmarks', which neither time, nor the ages, nor even our sin can wipe away.
