The Scots are Israelites


The National Archives of Scotland holds a document called the Declaration of Arbroath that was written to the Pope in 1320 A.D.  This document was written in support of King Robert Bruce (Robert I) and an independent Scotland, declaring that Robert I was their rightful monarch and asserting Scotland’s status as an independent kingdom.

The first paragraph, from the Declaration of Arbroath, reflects they are the people from the Bible and from the book of Chronicles.  It also reflects they are the people of Israel that crossed the Red Sea and their home is in the west today.  Note that all of Europe is west of Jerusalem.

 
Most Holy Father, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. It journeyed from Greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Pillars of Hercules, and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage peoples, but nowhere could it be subdued by any people, however barbarous. Thence it came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to its home in the west where it still lives today. The Britons it first drove out, the Picts it utterly destroyed, and, even though very often assailed by the Norwegians, the Danes and the English, it took possession of that home with many victories and untold efforts; and, as the histories of old time bear witness, they have held it free of all servitude ever since. In their kingdom there have reigned one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, the line unbroken by a single foreigner.

The Bible reflects that the Israelites would have a new home.  As prophesied, Yahweh gave the Israelites a highway so that they could leave their captivity.

 
Isaiah 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

 
This highway was the Dariel Pass “The Pass of Israel” that went through the Caucasian mountains which are located between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.  It took them a year and a half to pass through the Caucasian mountains.  The white race was named after the Caucasian mountains.

 More Biblical proof regarding their migration:

 
Amos 9:9 "For, behold, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all the nations, as grain is sifted in a sieve, yet not the least kernel will fall on the earth.
 

2 Esdras 13:[40] these are the ten tribes which were led away from their own land into captivity in the days of King Hoshea [Hosea], whom Shalmaneser the king of the Assyrians led captive; he took them across the river, and they were taken into another land.  [41] But they formed this plan for themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the nations and go to a more distant region, where mankind had never lived, [42] that there at least they might keep their statutes which they had not kept in their own land. [43] And they went in by the narrow passages of the Euphrates river. [44] For at that time the Most High performed signs for them, and stopped the channels of the river until they had passed over. [45] Through that region there was a long way to go, a journey of a year and a half; and that country is called Arzareth [Europe].
