The Saxons can trace their descent back to Isaac, the son of Abraham. This name was chosen by God for this very special child the child of Abraham’s old age. Genesis 17:19. The name means laughter, Genesis 21:6.
Isaac was born after his parents were past the normal age for bearing a child. He was born for a special purpose; he was a spiritual child. He was a willing sacrifice when his father offered him upon the altar – thus an early type of Christ.
Abraham was told that his seed were to be named in Isaac. Genesis 21:12. For this reason, we find modern Israel called Saxons and Anglo-Saxons and not Israelites. The word Israel means ruling with God. Until we become worthy of this high title we shall not be permitted to use the name. It must be remembered that spurious Israel bears the name today. (See Ezekiel 11:15; Isaiah 48:1, 2;) Isaac was given all the covenants that God conferred upon Abraham and all the blessings have continued with his descendants.
Later, when the northern house of Israel was released from captivity to Assyria, she began her long trek across Europe. During this journey she was known by different names. The Phoenician name for them was Beth-Sak the house of Isaac. They were known as Sakai, Sacae, Sak-Geloths, Saki, Saghs. The Behistun Rock mentions the Saki. On page 126 of “Tracing Our Ancestors,” Haberman states, “When Israel disappeared from the pages of history the Anglo Saxons and the Goths were born.” (For anyone wishing to make a study of these people, chapter XI of this book is very valuable.)
Sections of the Saki left the main trek and stopped off here and there along the way. This was God’s intention for them. “For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth.” Amos 9:9.
Some stopped in Germany and lived in the district known as Saxony today. These are a type quite distinct from the Bavarians and Prussians. They are tall and slim, fair and with blue or grey eyes. They are so similar to the British that they cannot be distinguished from them.
The rest of the Saki crossed over to Britain and there joined with other tribes of Israel that had preceded them. They are now the Anglo-Saxon Celtic peoples of the British Isles, of the coast lands of Europe and of the U.S.A. (Canada, Australia, New Zealand.)
