The Missing Link
lost for over 4000 years.
THE MISSING LINK IN LOST ISRAEL'S HISTORY
This monument, including the writing (which can be seen on the face of the rock) in the three languages, Persian; Elamite, and Babylonian, provides the missing historical link between ancient Ten Tribed Israel and the Saxon Peoples of today. The rock on which it is engraved stands out prominently in an elevated position 1700 feet above the plains of Iran.
Details of the sculpture are:
Darius, attended by an archer and a lancer , gives thanks to the national god of the Persians, Ahuramazda-represented within the winged disk symbolising the sun-for his triumph over the rebel Satraps, bound before him with ropes.
THE BEHISTUN ROCK
Everyone must have heard of the famous Rosetta Stone in the British Museum, on which a decree, written in three languages, gives the clue to the reading of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics: Perhaps few know of the equally important discovery of the inscriptions on the BEHISTUN ROCK in Persia, the name "Behistun" in the Median language meaning the Place ol God. These ancient inscriptions overlooking the highroad out of Media into Babylonia, carved in the solid rock which towers 1700 feet above the plain, were likewise written in three different languages, namely, Persian, Susian (=Elamite) and Babylonian, by order of Darius the Great.
As it is well known to archaeologists, the ancient Assyrian and Babylonian names for Israel were respectively "Kumri" and "Ghimri." Now the inscriptions on this Behistun Rock, originally investigated by Sir Henry Rawlinson, give details relating to a certain race of people, who in the Babylonian writing are called "GHIMRI," and in the Persian "SAKAE." Here, therefore, we have undeniable proof that those whom the Persians called the "Sakae" were none other than the "Ghimri" or CHILDREN OF ISRAEL!
NAMES LINKED IN HISTORY
Thus the great chain is complete, both Scripturally and historically, every link bearing witness to the truth that the "Angles" and "Saxons," who wandered into the Isles of the West at a period roughly 1260 years after the fall of their old capital Samaria, were literal descendants of the long-lost House of Israel, miraculously regathered by the Hand of God to be re-built as a great kingdom people prepared for His Son to rule, lead and guide during the on-coming Age, to make them a blessing to all the families of the earth.
