A great Bible scholar, Lt. Col. J.G. Wright, wrote a thesis over a half-century ago. In it, he recorded one hundred and ten Biblical references that could be used to identify true Israel.

Lt. Col. JG WrightYou see, just like evidence is collected to determine the outcome of a court case, this is evidence of the identity of the Israelites. Dear readers, I beg you not to be confused because another people have taken on the name of Israel.Remember, some people have the exact same names of others who are famous but it doesn’t change the fact they are not the famous ones. So, just because the name Israel was chosen for a country in 1948, didn’t make that nation the Israel of Biblical days.

Mr. Wright began his thesis with I few comments. He said, “God’s Marks on Israel! If we can discover the Nation and people with the Israel Marks we have discovered Israel. Have we [the Anglo-Saxon World] the Marks? …. And all the Marks? …. And are they on us only? The Marks are the one absolute and final test of identity. So, what does the Bible foretell about the future of Israel, for God knows the future? (Acts 15: 18).” Then Mr. Wright recorded his 110 marks. For brevity, we record only 56 but the full 110 appears in his essay under the “Articles” section of this website.

Lt. Col. Wright ended with, “Now, of course you say, yes, there is a people possessing these marks but that is coincidence. Yet, that is just the marvelous thing, that Britain and the Celtic Anglo-Saxon countries of the world do possess all these marks – therefore, they must be God’s Israel.”

It must be remembered that Lt. Col. Wright wrote this article approximately sixty years ago and at the time, the Dominion of Esau prophesized at Genesis 27: 40 had really just got underway. Since his writing, the yoke has been broken from Esau’s neck and placed on Israel’s and true Israel is reaping the curses of Deuteronomy 28. Consequently, some of the marks have been clouded by events; still, there is little doubt that that the marks can only be applied to the Anglo-Saxon peoples in Israel nations, like Britain, America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

Mark #46 above is particularly important, i.e., “Israel to remain in ignorance of her special relationship to God till the great revealing comes.” This means that true Israel is yet to be awakened to the truth. Still, this revealing has touched countless numbers since the early part of this century and seeds are rapidly being sown today in Israelites everywhere. I believe the great revealing is right around the corner.

Perhaps this website will open the eyes of many more who share the special relationship to the Lord God Almighty. In any event, not everybody was blinded throughout the centuries and the next article Part 3 – “Not Everyone’s Blind”  touches on some of the more important names.
