AFTER initially publishing my ‘Cities of the Millenial Kingdom’ paper, I was told by one reader that I had completely missed the bus and bumbled the ball, among other idioms, on the church of Britain situation. Don’t get him wrong, in the game of cold and hot I was scalding. What had apparently happened is that I was howling off down the hound trail (and in the right direction, mind you), but had failed to read the big bold letters embedded into the hillside. BRITAIN. It’s a Hebrew word. Yes, you heard me right. I nearly choked on my tea and puff pastry when reading the very thing. Looks like I have another homework assignment in the making, as the Celtic language very likely developed out of the ancient Hebrew language as well. The Celts being descended from Yashar’el and all. As were the Scots. As were the Saxons. As were the people of Denmark. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
It means “covenant,” in case you were wondering. The word ‘b’rit’, or ‘bĕriyth’ [בְּרִית], carries with it the sense of cutting. You will recall how Avraham personally observed Yahuah passing between the severed halves of an animal in Genesis 15:17 when a covenant was cut with him. To add to that, the word for “people” in Hebrew is: ‘am’ [עַם]. And so, the term “covenant people” in Hebrew would be Brit-am, which is rather close to Britain, don’t you think? Even the word ‘iysh’ or ‘ish’ [אִישׁ] in Hebrew means “man.” Brit-ish therefore directs us to the covenant man. Or perhaps the covenant men. They are coming, you know. I am reminded of it often around these parts, come every July. The British are coming. You may be wondering how that connects us with Yashar’el. Simple. They too are the people of the covenant. It says so right here.
5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and guard my covenant [בְּרִיתִ֑י bə-rî-ṯî;], then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: 6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the words which you hall speak unto the children of Yashar’el.
Shemoth (Exodus) 19:5-6 [Cepher]
Obeying His voice is identified with guarding his covenant. But then why does Yahuah specify the entire earth is his? I prompt that question solely based upon the fact that Britain is nearly a world away from ancient Yashar’el. Perhaps He was setting the diaspora up. Letting them know that they could still turn to Him in their dispersion and become a peculiar treasure, if indeed they guard His covenant. It means wherever they are or happen to be when penitent hearts begin to call upon His Name again, they too can become a kingdom of priests and a holy nation, even if it’s an island in the Atlantic.
