Has Jubilee begun in Iceland?
The Israelite tribe of Benjamin is represented primarily by Iceland and Norway in the world today. We discussed this in our lecture series on Joseph the Overcomer (Album A-120, 30 lectures in all, only $89 + $7 shipping); in particular, in lectures #489 & 490, The Tribe of Benjamin: Ancient and Modern. ($12 ppd.). The Benjamin portion of the story was lectures #25 & 26 in the series.
As all Bible students recognize, “little Benji” was a key in the dramatic story of Joseph in ancient Egypt. Joseph’s brothers were blinded to his identity. America is blind to her identity as being part of modern Joseph (i.e., the Ephraim tribe—not Manasseh, as many have previously thought; that distinction is made and proven elsewhere in my Joseph the Overcomer series). Of course, America is also the regathering place of all the tribes).
In the story in the book of Genesis, Joseph first privately revealed his identity to his full-brother, Benjamin. Only later did he reveal his identity to the rest of his brothers. Will “little Iceland” be a key once again? Will Benjamin-Iceland lead the way with an economic Jubilee? It appears they are well on the way, having nationally declared a cancellation of debts incurred by private bankers who tried to foist it off on the citizens of Iceland. Way to go, brethren in Iceland!
Furthermore, as one columnist asks: why have not the national media publicized this? Could it be because they do not want other nations following suit? Indeed! That may well be the motive for their burying this important story. The column below appeared in The Daily Kos—of all places, a left-wing website! Many left-wingers, however, are just as desirous of truth and justice as are those on the right. With that in mind, here is how Deena Stryker began her report:
An Italian radio program’s story about Iceland’s on-going revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world. Americans may remember that at the start of the 2008 financial crisis, Iceland literally went bankrupt. The reasons were mentioned only in passing, and since then, this little-known member of the European Union fell back into oblivion.
As one European country after another fails or risks failing, imperiling the Euro, with repercussions for the entire world, the last thing the powers that be want is for Iceland to become an example. Here’s why: [story continues here].
