What is waiting for the US and UK in Bible prophecy? Ezekiel was commissioned by God to watch over them and they were blessed with power and glory but in the last days it is very clear to see the once mighty and powerful countries are just observers of the plunder coming before the day of Jehovah!

What is really happening in the US this year, is there a reason behind the insanity? Is there a way of knowing where the country is going and how the insanity will end? A pamphlet written by Herbert W Armstrong many years ago appears to have the answer. After an incredible journey of wealth and power, promised by God more than 4,000 years ago Tarshish and her young lions, England, America, Canada Australia and New Zealand will simply look on as the mighty Gog threatens to destroy their ally and friend Israel in the last days

The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy

To find out the answer we have to go back around 4,000 years to when a man called Jacob was born, who later was given the name Israel and is regarded as a Patriarch of the Israelites and so is an important figure in Abrahamic religions, such as Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Jacob first appears in the Book of Genesis, the son of Isaac and Rebecca, the grandson of Abraham, Sarah and Bethuel, the nephew of Ishmael. Jacob is said to have had twelve sons by four women, his wives, Leah and Rachel, and his concubines, Bilhah and Zilpah, who were, in order of their birth, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Joseph, and Benjamin, all of whom became the heads of their own family groups, later known as the Twelve Tribes of Israel. More here

When the Jews entered the Promised Land, the12 tribes settled in a different region and eventually the tribes split into two kingdoms. The southern kingdom was called Judah and consisted of two tribes, Judah and Benjamin. The remaining 10 tribes formed the northern kingdom and were called Israel.

In 721 BC, the Assyrians conquered Israel, the northern kingdom and deported the Israelites to an area north of the Euphrates River between the Black and Caspian Seas. (2 Kings 17). The Ten tribes who were deported never returned to the northern nation of Israel after their captivity.

The Lost Ten Tribes Of Israel

According to Mr Armstrong, The knowledge and identity of the descendants of ancient Israel are revealed by a close examination of scripture and secular history. Are the ten lost tribes of Israel linked to the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand? Ezekial was commissioned by God to be "the watchman" for the house of Israel. (Ezekial 2:3; 33:7). However, Ezekiel's commission was not to be the watchman of his own people and his generation, which was the house of Judah, the southern kingdom or the northern ten tribes of Israel which had been conquered by the Assyrians 120 years earlier, no Ezekiel's commission was not for Israel of his day but for the ten lost tribes of the north and their future. 

God wanted Ezekiel to sound the alarm, to warn the lost tribes of future calamities which would take over them and they would be unaware of their fate. Jehovah takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked, no he wanted to warn them, giving them the responsibility of their own fate, (Ezekiel 33: 9-16). Ezekiel's warning was for end-time Israel. (Ezekiel 4: 3). In fact, we are told that the warnings were for the time near the Day Of The Lord. (Ezekiel 7:19;13:5; 30:1-3; 38: 1-29). 

Tarshish and the young lions

The prophecy in the book of Ezekiel, Chapter 38, is an actual warning of an attack on Israel in the future, from a group of nations led by someone called Gog,  who comes from Magog. Magog is said to be North West of the Caspian Sea, there are just two countries North West of the Caspian Sea, Kazakhstan and Russia. Gog is the head chieftain, (leader) of Meshech and Tubal which according to Wikipedia is a Japhetite tribe (one of the ten lost tribes). However, the Indo-European group is no longer known as "Japhetite", the Hamitic group is now recognized as paraphyletic within the Afro-Asiatic family. Among Muslim historians, Japheth is usually regarded as the ancestor of the Gog and Magog tribes. According to Delilah Ann Gill, Ghayin, (Hebrew) later shortened to G, is a twisted rope or a twisted dark goat horn thus it is Gog: Dark and Twisted:

Ezekiel goes on to say Persia, Ethiopia and Put are among the coalition, Persia is modern-day Iran, (Iran's leaders despise Israel and would dearly love to wipe it off the map) and Put, which is thought to be Lybia. In verse 8, Ezekiel mentions the fact, that after many years of being left desolated, the inhabitants of the land (Jews) have been restored to Israel and will be living in peace and security at the time of the attack. Part of this prophecy was established in 1948 when the Jews regained their land after they had lost it 2,000 years earlier, however, they are obviously not living in peace and security at the moment but just this month a surprising peace deal has been reached between Isreal and the United Arab Emirates, who became the third Arab country to make peace after Egypt and Jordan.

In Ezekiel 38: 11, he claims, the coalition will invade the land of unprotected settlements to take much spoil and plunder. Ezekiel 13 claims, Sheba and Dedan and the merchants of Tarshish and its "young lions," (this phrase is a Hebrew idiom meaning the nations that have come out of Tarshish) will say to (Gog), "are you invading to get much spoil and plunder?" " Have you assembled your armies to carry off silver and gold?

Sheba and Dedan are what's now called Saudi Arabia and they are allies of Tarshish and its young lions. Tarshish is almost certainly the UK and was mentioned in the Bible as far back as Genesis 10. Tarshish translates to the "Tin Isles." Tin was needed in ancient times to make bronze, tin has been mined in Britain for thousands of years, something not mined in great quantities anywhere else in Europe. The “merchants of Tarshish and the young lions thereof” are the offshoots of Britain from their Empire days, the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Britain ruled the oceans and used their ships to connect the world with ocean shipping roots which are exploited today by its "young lions, " The mighty US among others. Full story 

Why do I think Tarshis is The British Isles?

Tarshish is mentioned in the prophecies of Scripture as having an important role in the last days. Usually, reference is made to “the ships of Tarshish” or the “merchants of Tarshish”. If we can locate Tarshish in the ancient world we can identify Tarshish in the last- days prophecies

Psalm 72: 10. The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts. In September 2019, scientists made a breakthrough discovery by identifying tin ingots found in Israel as being originally from Cornwall. The ingots, which date back to around 1,300BC, were discovered at shipwreck sites and a sunken village off the coast of Israel from a time that Phoenician ships dominated the Mediterranean.

Others have also pointed to the role Britain had in aiding the return of the Jewish people to their historic homeland: “Surely the coastlands shall wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from afar, Their silver and their gold with them, To the name of the Lord your God, And to the Holy One of Israel Because He has glorified you.” (Isaiah 60:9).

A promise to Abraham

In Genesis 12: 2-3 God promises Abraham a great nation and tells him he will have a great name and he will be blessed. God also told Abraham, I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth, Genesis 13:14-16. And in Genesis 15, Abrahams descendants would be like the number of the stars. Abraham would go on to have two sons, his first son Ishmael was born from his maidservant Hagar and the Arab nations take their origin from Ismael's sons. Abraham then had a child from his own wife Sarah and they called him Isaac. Many years after Jehovah's promise to Abraham he reconfirmed them to his son Isaac.

The beginning of Israel

Isaac and his wife, Rebecca had two sons, twins, Jacob and Esau. In Genesis 28:13-14, Jacobs descendants would spread abroad to the west and east and to the north and south and that Jacob's seed would be in of the families of the world and they shall be blessed. We see here the inheritance God promised Jacob was to encompass more than just the lands of the middle-east but the entire world. Jehovah changed Jacob's name to Israel and he went on to have 12 sons, the original ancestors of the twelve tribes of Israel. Two kingdoms would derive from the twelve tribes of Israel, Israel in the north consisting of ten tribs and Judah in the South consisting of two tribes. Judah's descendants in the south were promised a line of Kings culminating in the King of Kings the Messiah. Joseph's descendants in the north were given the promise of national greatness.

As we read earlier Israel in the north was broken up by the Assyrians and its people captured and taken to a place between the Black and Caspian Seas, which was probably eastern Turkey or northern Iran. years later Judah in the South was captured and its residents took back to Babylon but some of them returned to Judah after Babylon was conquered by the Persian's, the ten tribes of the north never went back, they headed north, ultimately to northwestern Europe.

The Birthright Promises Are Fulfilled.

Mr Armstrong writes; Seven prophetic times, 2,520 years went by from the time of Samaria's fall, (the capital of Israel in the north), in 721 BC. This brings us to 1800 AD and the time according to scripture, Abrahams descendants would begin coming into the possession of the birthright promises. Mr Armstrong goes on, the remarkable story of English speaking nations that unfolded after 1800 is astounding (and once again proved that Tarshish and her young lions were the UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, added by Gary Walton).

England Emerges.

After the war of the roses which ended in 1485, a stable government under the Tudor dynasty of Henry VII ruled England and brought them out of the dark ages. Over the next century, the tiny nation began to develop into a sea power. By the end of the 1800s, Great Britain had amassed the biggest empire ever known. The small Islands ruled over a quarter the worlds land, "the sun never sets on her Empire". The most powerful company of nations, the British Empire and the greatest single nation, the US, emerged right on schedule fulfilling God's prophecy to Abraham. With Australia, New Zealand and Canada Great Britain came into possession of some of the richest agricultural land on earth. 

The rest, as they say, is history, Ezekiel's warning goes unheard, God's desire for repentance, not punishment will never happen, the US and UK are morally in tatters, sin is rampant and both countries are heading for a fall, England, of course, lost her empire and America is slowly relenting power to China

Two declining powers

The prophecy in the book of Ezekiel, Chapter 38, gives us actual insight into the two declining powers in the last days. What is interesting to note here is the fact that Israel's staunch allies of today, the US and the UK appear not to be able to defend Israel from the Magog coalition who merely ask Gog in a weak response, "are you invading Israel to get much spoil and plunder?" "Have you assembled your armies to carry off silver and gold?" A polite, meek diplomatic protest rather than a threat of retaliation. The US and UK have clearly lost their "Super Power" status in the future and can't come to the defence of Israel? Have today's problems brought the country to its knees in the future? Ezekiel 38:13.

Great article Gary,
Why happened to you . Did you fall and hit your head, because all of a sudden your deep into the old testament. I love it. Two things I'd like to mention to you that may help you a lot is, get yourself a hebrew tanach bible the stone edition. The 7x10 inch. It's still in the original text, no words have been added or taken out, as compared to the authorized king james version which has over 5200 altercations. Whenever a king or a politician or pastor authorizes anything it should send up red flags everywhere. Another site that may help you is " " thousands of sites on this from the bible to underground bases. I'm going to keep this short. I've said this before, in a article a few months ago, we are all going into captivity we are in the early stages of it right now, it's going to get worse. The corona virus has made this a reality. It is God ordained, Did you notice how quickly the whole world went into captivity. Viruses don't spread that quick. God say's I will bring you in from "your captivity " from the east, west, north and south Isa. 43:5-6. Jer. 30 : 1-3. Jer 33: 7. He will bring us (both houses ) the house of judah and the house of Israel to the promised land ezek. 37. 15-28. Don't let people fool you when they say that both houses are jews because their not. There are only fourteen million jews world wide. God promised Abraham's offspring will be as numerous as the sands of the sea's ( billions) Hosea 2 vs 1. Also, God promised Abraham that his offspring would inherit the gates of her enemies. ( strategic ports ) Gen. 22: 17 Gen 24: 60 The Americans have Hawaii, Panama ( did have until they gave it away) Diago Garcia. The Brits have the falklands islands, Hong Kong ( did have) Suez canal ( did have ) and a few more. As far as I know, the Jews don't have any strategic Ports. What I'm not looking forward to is all the stuff that's going to happen shortly, because 2/3 's of us are going to parish. Zechariah 13:8 Also the 1/3 that remains God will separate the bitchers and complainers and they will not enter the promised land. So, it's going to be a rough ride for most of us, that is myself included. Keep praying that God will protect you. God is beneficent ,a stronghold on the day of distress, and mindful of those who take refuge in him. Nahum 1:7 ( Hebrew Tanach )

Herbert Armstong is a false prophet, why would anyone direct someone to a false prophet??

If you want to study some credible information on the end times go to

I did not see this human craziness coming, people are sick w/ hate, I knew this next year would be tragic b/c we are at the end of the Church age/Age of Grace, which means that believing Jesus Christ is the son of God & was resurrected on the third day is coming to an end in order to reach salvation. Jesus was a supernatural being from ancient times, he became human and died as a human on the cross, shedding his blood to forgive us of all our sins, so that we have a chance to be saved by accepting Jesus Christ as our savior/redeemer/messiah. Amen. God bless us all.

I'm not promoting Herbert Armstrong or anything else. Just read the bible. And as far as false prophets in christianity are concerned, you don't have to look to far.
