FOREWORD.



FROM childhood I was brought up in the Anglican and
Methodist orthodox Church teaching, and read the Scriptures
until I had a clear knowledge ot every chapter of the Old and
New Testaments.

The teaching of the pulpits and Sunday Schools gave me
the orthodox views of religion, of the general outline of the
Scriptures, and a notion of the nature of the Christian's God
which in the early years of my life gave me some anxious
hours, but nothing too serious for acceptance.

Having arrived at manhood's years, and gaining the
knowledge to be had through increasing experience and
thought, and having taken a long and heavy course in a
University which placed great emphasis both on science and
religion, I began to find real difficulties, which increased
until I could no longer read my Bible with profit or pleasure.

I found, with my views of the Scriptures and the Almighty,
that the Bible was coming to me as a myth, or rather a story
of a sort I could not trust. It was full of contradictions, as
it had been taught me, and thus I was in an awful condition
of mind.

The chief result was that I quit the study of the Book, and
was very unhappy in so doing. To my mind either the Book
was a fraud or the teaching from the pulpits was false.

Eventually I ran across the various works on the Anglo-
Israel teaching, and at first I laughed at it, and made ready
to master and attack it openly.

However, I found that my judgment was captured by the
straight and marvellous array of facts of the many writers on
this subject, and in the end I took it up in an exhaustive
manner.

Now at the end of nearly thirty years of hard and patient
study, the proofs that we, the Anglo-Saxon peoples, are the
ancient Ten-tribed House of Israel, in a national and official
sense, is as clear to my mind as the noon-day sun is to the
eyes of mortals.

VI FOREWORD.

These numerous proofs are as forceful as the proofs of
geometry are to the geometrician. My belief is absolute,
and the result to my mind is that the Bible is a DIVINE BOOK,
and is not a failure. God is not a liar, as the logical results
of the teaching of the pulpits too largely indicate.

They tell us constantly that Israel sinned, and that God
cast off Israel forever, and that Israel as a nation and a
people does not exist. Any honest, capable man who reads
this book will be forced to re-read his Bible with a different
view, and with greater delight and higher blessings. Higher
criticism, that devil's, German, atheistic process of human
speculation, is unnecessary when once we get a clear view of
God's Plan of the Ages in relation to humanity.

The author wishes it to be made very clear that National
Israel of the Bible EXCLUDES the Jew. The House of
Judah was not and is not ISRAEL. Even when the term
" All Israel " is used Judah is excluded. This is fundamental
and effective.

EXPLANATION.



THIS little volume contains only a small portion of the vast
array of facts which have been gathered and might be pre-
sented to the public.

It is the author's intention to prepare, at a later date, one
or two volumes which will be fairly complete in the many
details which take in every phase of this far-reaching
question.

To make it possible for all classes to purchase this little
work it is published and presented to the public as a gift, so
far as the author is concerned, the money-making 'element
having been eliminated.

GOD'S COVENANT MAN:
BRITISH-ISRAEL



GREAT AND GREATER BRITAIN,



GREAT AND GREATER BRITAIN.



CHAPTER I.

IN the following chapters I shall strive to show that the
British Empire is far greater and more powerful than any
Empire of past ages, or than any nation which might dare
make comparison with her at the present hour. In this
particular chapter I shall confine myself to the placing before
the reading public the latest reliable statistics available.
These will show conclusively that Great Britain is the only
nation in the world's history that is in the full enjoyment
of all the national and material blessings promised to ancient
Israel.

The first important conclusion to be drawn from the prooi
of her enjoyment of the long-age, promised, covenant bless-
ings, is, that, since she alone of all nations so enjoys these
blessings that were given exclusively to ancient Israel, she,
Great Britain, is Israel. The conclusion will have over-
whelming weight with all students of and believers in the
Holy Scriptures. Ot course these chapters are dedicated to
the use and perusal of only those who believe in the History
and Prophecy of the Bible. All others may or may not read
the book now presented to the public.

British ships carried 48,820,830 tons of the above tonnage.
Britain carried 48 per cent.

In 1914 Great Britain launched a tonnage of 1,683,553, of which
75'6 per cent, was built for British registration.

Of the world's output for 1914 Great Britain's share was 59 per
cent. Of sea-going steamers of 3,000 tons and upward, Britain
built 64 per cent: of the world's production.

The total number of British-owned vessels is 39,885 for 1914.

Lloyd's Register book of the world's shipping, whose new issue
has been awaited with the keenest interest by shipping men because
of the multitude of changes which have taken place in the last year
in the identity and ownership of vessels, has made its appearance.

The outstanding feature of the new register book is that, not-
withstanding the extraordinary losses of the past few months, the
tonnage of the world in vessels of 100 tons and upwards has
actually increased from 49,017,627 tons in 1914 to 49,261,769 tons.
Of this increase, steamers alone have accounted for 122,113 tons,
their total tonnage having risen from 45,403,877 to 45,729,208, and
their number from 24,444 to 24,508. Sailing vessels show a decrease
in number from 6,392 to 6,212, and in tonnage from 3,685,675 to
3,532,561.

Following are the notable changes in the statistics of tonnage
owned in the various maritime countries since the war, as published
in the new 1915-16 register book, are as follows :

The Enlarged British Empire.

A publisher of statistics makes the statement that the British
Empire, before the war, comprised 11,454,862 square miles, ex-
cluding Egypt, the Soudan, and Cyprus, which were technically
Turkish. The Empire has increased by some 3,236,000 square
miles, or nearly one-third, during the first year of the war. This
figure includes the Cameroons, the conquest of which is now
complete, and is a Franco-British enterprise, so that the territory
will probably be divided.

The new territories captured, incorporated in the Empire, or
added to our sphere of influence, are :

Of the Arabian Peninsula, the Aden Protectorate (about 9,000
square miles) belonged to Great Britain, Turkey owned about
436,000 square miles, native independent States occupied about
163,000 square miles, and the remainder comprises huge deserts,
sparsely inhabitated by nomadic tribes. It has a total population
