About what happened to our
in the middle of the Sierra

Mountain Range, Ifugao Province
seeing the state of Hellmantle and D'Aqs, covered in debris and sporting a
muddy countenance in general, the young woman smiled at the tall men and said
all the rooms were vacant. When she was told they had ridden into town on their
motorcycles she shook her head but admired them with her eyes. After providing
them with peanuts and chips and beer and water, she took them to the rooms
around the side of the building to three rooms under the main floor.
"This is where missionaries
stay when they pass through," she said. D'Aqs shivered in his wet clothes.
"That's why we named the rooms after the first three chapters in the Bible."
She pointed above the doorway.
"Genesis, and this one is
Exodus," said D'Aqs, feeling as if he had found an ancient secret among his own
people called by God to bring the Gospel to those who were still in the dark.
He had never seen this in Burma.
"And the third is Jeremiah,"
she said as she smiled and left them. D'Aqs stood squinting at the signs above
"She said each room is named
after the first three chapters of the Bible? Not quite. The first two
books are Genesis and Exodus, but the Book of Jeremiah is in the middle
of the Old Testament." The room cold but dry.
"Then why do you think they
chose it?" The man from Normandy busy stuffing peanuts and beer down his
"Couldn't say." The way
D'Aqs removed his boots showed the pain he was in, particularly his clutch
"If they chose the Book of
Jeremiah purposely they probably know their stuff. It's one of my favorites."
"Why's that?" Hellmantle
took a long swig of his beer. D'Aqs cracked open a beer and stared at the wall
across from him where someone had painted a mural of a rice terrace.
the greatest dates in history for me is not 1492 or 1066 or 1798, but 586BC,"
said Hellmantle in a lecturing tone. He paused to see if D'Aqs understood the
importance of the date, which he didn't. "For me this date was a moment when
history hung in the balance. Since then there have been no serious threats to
the chosen family."
"I'm not getting it."
"No, it doesn't appear so. You
never studied the family records and appreciated our historical significance in
the Bible story." He sighed and shook his head for emphasis. "This was the
date that the three daughters of the Royal House of Judah left with their
scribe Baruch and traveled from Jerusalem via Spain to Northern Ireland. There,
one of the three daughters married a Celtic King in a town that eventually got
its name from the princess named Tara."
"The Hill of Tara. Sure, I
know of that," D'Aqs chuffed he could show some degree of knowledge.
"Well then you know Irish
Celts hold three sacred assemblies in Tara every year?"
"And ever since Princess
Tara was crowned a Celtic Queen, all the kings of the United Kingdom have been
crowned with the Stone of Destiny under the throne. The Stone of
Destiny was brought over too, which is said to have been Jacob's Pillow."
"I've heard of the Stone
of Destiny but never knew how it came to Britain. But how do you
know this stuff?"
"Books my brother, books.
You see I'm an archivist. I dig deeper mental archives for certain
subjects, and the Book of Jeremiah happens to be one of them. It's all
in the Book of Jeremiah. It's there to read. This sacred stone, this Stone
of Scone was brought over when the entire royal family of the Royal House
of Judah had been killed by the invading Assyrian army in 586BC. All the male
heirs of the Royal House of David were killed including Zedekiah, the father of
the three daughters who saved the bloodline from extinction and brought the
line of chosen Judah to the green pastures of Ireland where they quickly
married into the royalty of the Celts, their long lost cousins in the British
Isles. They arrived with the royal lion on their shields and the chosen
bloodline was introduced into the British Isles. This is where the lion comes
from in the British lion and the unicorn coat-of-arms." D'Aqs grunted.
"Regardless of its
historical impact, the Book of Jeremiah in the Old Testament is one of the great
stories in our canon of historical literature. And it goes some way to explain
the connection between northern Europe - particularly Ireland, Scotland and
England - and the bloodline of the Royal House of David. It wasn't until I had
put in many hours of research that I began to uncover what the
connections are. To me this is the most important forgotten piece of
history they don't teach at school." Hellmantle, flushed in the face.
"What history?" The beer was
already making D'Aqs sleepy as he casually picked at the cut on his hand.
"The Red Hand in the
Northern Ireland flag was said to come from some legend from a battle between
the north and the south, but it actually comes from the Book of Genesis. When
the royal heir was born there were twins and the rightful heir Zarah
went back into the womb and was not given the honor of being the first born. A
red string was tied around Zarah's finger before going back into the womb. The
string was to recognize the inheritance of the rightful line. It was this line
of Royal David that was saved from extinction when Jeremiah and the three
daughters came over to Northern Ireland. This bloodline is still carried by the
British Royal Family today - at least in diluted form. The Northern Irish flag
is actually a red hand mounted on the Star of David under the royal crown. You
have to ask yourself why these symbols are used? The red hand and the red
string: how plain could it be especially placed in front of the Star of David?"
bloodline of the chosen line came from Ireland?" D'Aqs, very doubtful
and fearful his cousin was living in a world of illusions and selective
religious history, thought he would let him get it off his chest. After all it
had been quite a day.
"Ah! Well, the mother of the
three daughters was named Scota, so when Princess Tara from the House of
Judah married the Celtic king Fergus the Great on the Hill of Tara in
Ireland, they became known as the Scots. These Scots from Ireland went to
Scotland and conquered the Picts, and settled what is modern-day Scotland. This
royal bloodline eventually made it to the British throne through James the
Sixth of Scotland, who became James the First of Great Britain, which fulfilled
the prophecy in Genesis. King James was a Stewart, a name that means to
serve. And it was this James who commissioned the King James Bible." D'Aqs
was speechless for a moment.
"So then that's why Scotland
has the red lion rampant as their emblem?" As any man of the cloth would know,
the lion of Judah was the famous symbol from the Bible but how it ever got into
Britain had alwys been a mystery.
"Yeah. And it's red because
of the red thread on the finger of their forefather Zarah, who was the twin of
Perez." D'Aqs had to concede Hellmantle's reference to the Book of Genesis.
"I do know that in the Book
of Genesis it describes when one of the twins' fingers is tied with a red piece
of string symbolizing the true inheritor of earthly power."
"This is what the red hand
symbolizes: that the three sisters landed in Northern Ireland from Palestine
way back in 586BC. This is the hidden history of the British Isles."
It was clear his mind was racing with unsaid facts and information from the
countless pages he had read over the years as an expatriate that was coming to
life from all the betel nut he had chewed. To encourage him D'Aqs took out his
Good Book and, since he knew the Book of Genesis much better than the Book of
Jeremiah, he found the passage Hellmantle was talking about in Genesis, He read
Genesis 38:28 When the time came for her to give
birth, it was discovered that she was going to have twins. While she was in
labor, one of them put out an arm; the midwife caught it, tied a red thread
around it, and said, "this one was born first." But he pulled his arm back, and
then his brother was born first. Then the midwife said, "So this is how you
break your way out!" So he was named Perez. Then his brother was born with the
red thread on his arm, and he was named Zarah."
"Yes, that's it. The
name Zarah means ‘scarlet.' And actually, while we're on names, James
is the English form of the Hebrew Jacob. That's where the word Jacobite
comes from when referring to the Stewart line, Bonny Prince Charlie and his
failed putsch to regain the throne."
James in Spanish is Santiago."
"You know what ‘Britain'
"Yes. It means ‘people of
the covenant,' in Hebrew." D'Aqs enjoying the sparring.
about the first name ‘Brian?'"
a variation of the word Britain, like Bri'an. It means person
of the covenant - covenant as you know meaning agreement between the
Israelites and God."
"And my first name?"
"I can't entertain the
notion that you don't know," said Hellmantle, stunned.
"All I know is that it's
French and comes from my mother." Hellmantle chose not to ridicule his cousin's
means from Acquitaine. And Acquitaine was one of the primary areas where
the descendants of Jesus chose to locate."
That's because some of my family line on my mother's side came from Acquitaine.
Interesting." Hellmantle pondered for a moment with the Bible in his
"There is this great silence
about all this knowledge that it boggles the mind. Why aren't these truths
taught? H.G. Wells was right when he wrote the religious life of Western
countries is ‘going on in a house of history built upon sand.' As I see
it, at this point in history it's about learning the history of the migration
and location of ‘peoples of the covenant.' My point is that religion
today is more to do with the Book of Jeremiah and what it tells us about our
family history rather than trying to figure out how one can be born from a
virgin mother. So few people know a very important truth about the Bible:
that the Europeans have an Israelite origin. Ancestors of Jacob landed
in Europe and her satellites. For example, direct descendents of Jacob's son
Zebulon are one tribe that still exist today as one people in Europe: The
Netherlands. They were known as sailors and experts at sea and their symbol on
their shields was a ship. These are the modern-day Dutch."
"Are you serious?"
"I told you I'm always
serial when discussing this. I'm actually surprised you've never been
exposed to all this. You know Britain means people of the covenant
but you don't know about the British Israelites. So many symbols of Great
Britain are from the Bible."
"So where did they land?"
"I don't know them all but I
remember the tribe of Dan settled Denmark, and named the Dan River and
the Danube River. The Danes were considered the strongest of the three
Viking tribes, the Norse being excellent seafarers and the Swedes going down
the Volga River and taking over Russia."
Rus were a Viking tribe from Sweden. They ruled Russia for centuries."
Surprised at D'Aqs lack of historical knowledge, he added: "And you know how people
say the Vikings were barbarians who plundered booty and whatnot, well
they were world-class traders had settlements in many places."
went to Canada a thousand years ago didn't they?"
did, to Lanse-de-Meadow in Newfoundland. They were there for a few years
and buggered off. Called it Vinland. And they had a settlement in Sicily
and modern-day Chechnya, and Dublin."
"Dublin was a Viking fort.
And the Irish surname Higgins comes from O'Higgins and the Gaelic
O'huiGin means Viking. Vikings also settled Iceland, the Hebrides
north of Scotland and any town along the east coast of England that ends with
the letters ‘by, like Digby.'"
"Why? Because it means ‘town?'"
"Exactly. From Danelaw
when the long heads, as the Vikings were called, kept attacking the east
coast of England. The Vikings were basically the policemen of the Silk
Road to China."
"That's hard to
all you want Thomas but they're still finding Vikings buried along the Silk
Road. Look it up."
us? As Normans?" Sleep was descending on his eyelids like bricks.
are descendents of the tribe of Benjamin."
tribe of Gad. They grabbed the best land in Switzerland. I believe the symbol
on their shield was a leader of troops, and as a fact Switzerland has the
oldest army in Europe known as the Swiss Guard. They protect the Pope. They
wear the rather loud regalia with the stripes and whatnot." D'Aqs' doubt was
gaining force with this matter-of-fact delivery of this dubious piece of knowledge
about the Netherlands.
"I'm sure you don't mind me
asking but how can you be sure of this?"
"Scholars have been
researching the Lost Tribes recently and have tracked the tribes by language
and symbols, but mainly by genetics. There's a map that exists that tracks the
movement of the tribes with the majority going to Northern Europe, but also a
strain going to modern-day Afghanistan. I believe it is the R2 gene that
is the marker for the Afghan piece."
But they're Muslim."
true but they became Muslim after Mohammed penned the Koran around
700AD. God dictated it to Him because the previous message had been tampered
with by Rome. It says that in the Koran. At one point it states: ‘It is not
suited for Almighty God that He should father a son.' And ‘They say, "God had
fathered a son!' - Glory to be to Him!' No reason do you have for this lie
about God.' "Verily, those who make up a lie against God will never succeed!'[i]"
D'Aqs closed his eyes and ruminated the data and heard Hellmantle mutter virgin
birth under his breath. "And coincidently, I have a friend from university
who is the grandson of the Shah - or king - of Afghanistan who told me
once that during the war Hitler asked his grandfather to join the Axis powers,
which he declined. After he had sent his letter refusing his offer he received
a Mercedes Benz from Germany." D'Aqs fell asleep thinking about Jeremiah and
the hidden history of the family story of the Bible.
