You may have noticed how often the Trumpet encourages readers to study The United States and Britain in Prophecy. Of all the literature we publish, this book is the most important for understanding world events and Bible prophecy. Together with the Bible, it forms the prophetic foundation of this magazine.
The United States and Britain in Prophecy explains the origins of the United States, the British Commonwealth and the Jewish nation of Israel. Herbert W. Armstrong, the book’s author, showed that these nations are the descendants of ancient Israel and therefore the inheritors of the extraordinary promises God made to Abraham, the father of Israel’s patriarchs.
Among the many proofs of Israel’s modern identity and location, Mr. Armstrong explained how the “lost 10 tribes of Israel” left the Levant in the eighth century B.C. and migrated through Europe and into the British Isles. From there, descendants of the tribe of Manasseh later departed for America (“new Israel,” as many of them called it) and formed what became the United States of America.
Many people contest the idea that the Bible can provide insight into the identity of nations and international relations. But the facts in The United States and Britain in Prophecy are validated by science, by rational argumentation, and by convincing empirical evidence.
Here we will look at some tangible evidence, not only historical documents, but actual artifacts—multiple giant features that one can visit and touch—showing that the lost 10 tribes of Israel migrated from the eastern Mediterranean, through Europe, and into the British Isles.

This perception is false
