While doing research into the rich history of those who believed, preached, and taught the Anglo-Israel message through history, I came across a newspaper article from The Knoxville News-Sentinel in Knoxville, Tennessee from May 29th 1937 concerning a Dr. John H. Dequer. This article gave a short testimony of how Dr. Dequer went from being a hot and heavy atheist, to a Christian because he read J. H. Allen’s book on the Anglo-Israel message
A question we have to ask ourselves is why would someone come out of atheism because of the Israel message? Well the answer is very simple. Because when you examine the Bible through the lenses of “Judeo-Christianity” it doesn’t make any sense, and it makes God out to be a liar.
In the book of Genesis God promises to make an everlasting covenant with Abraham and his descendants forever. He then promises that those people of that covenant would become a great and might nation, also be a multitude of nations, be a blessing to all the families of the earth, be a vast multitude of people compared to the stars of the heaven, produce kings, and possess the gate of their enemies (or conquer their enemies), and so much more.
Those are some really big promises to make about a group of people, and not just any group, but the group of people that the Bible is all about from Genesis to Revelation. Then “Judeo-Christianity” looks at the Jew as God’s chosen people, and it’s not very long before someone with a brain compares the Jewish people of today, to those promises, and says “wait a minute! This book is full of nonsense! The Jews have never been all these things!” But when someone is introduced to the Anglo-Israel messages, and then compares those promises that God made with Israel to the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Scandinavian and kindred peoples, the Bible opens up to that person, and it is no longer a book of fairy tells. The Anglo-Israel message is a key to unlocking Bible understanding, and that is why it is such an important message to spread among our brethren.
The Lord used J. H. Allen’s book to open the eyes of Dr. Dequer, and he went from being a preacher of atheism, to being a preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ and the Anglo-Israel Truth. During the 1930s he helped Howard B. Rand and his Anglo-Saxon Federation to open the eyes of more of his brethren, the same way J. H. Allen had done, and the same way you can do.
