History of the 10 Tribes of Israel
Jonah—the Misunderstood Prophet
If I were to ask you what Old Testament prophet is known as the “disobedient prophet” or the “prophet with a bad attitude,” many would instantly reply that the prophet was Jonah. Jonah was unquestionably disobedient to God’s initial command to go to Nineveh, and the book of Jonah does end with Jonah in a deep funk regarding the outcome of his prophetic mission.

Four Reasons the Jews Are "Judah"
The books, articles, and audio messages at this website make it unmistakably clear that the USA, the UK and its affiliated British nations as well as many European and Scandinavian nations are the modern nations which have descended from the ancient ten tribes of Israel (i.e. the "House of Israel") who went into exile. This conclusion is backed by irrefutable biblical and secular evidence. However, there is a significant number of people who when they learn this truth, become anti-Jewish and deny that modern Jews/Israelis are the true biblical House of Judah. This article makes it abundantly clear, based on both clear biblical and secular/historical evidence that today's modern Jews/Israelis are the latter-day biblical House of Judah. The issue of the Khazars is addressed in this article. If you have any doubts that modern Jews are the true House of Judah, please read this article.

The Babylonian Origin of the Modern Banking System
Do you realize that the modern banking system had its origins in the sun-god temples of ancient Babylon? This is well-documented in secular histories, and it explains why God calls our modern world financial system "Babylon the Great" in Revelation 17-18. This article will make ancient biblical narratives "come alive," and also shed much light on what is now happening in our modern global world of finance. Click here.
Is the Earth 6000 Years Old? [Subtitle: When Lucifer Ruled the Earth]
Most Christians mistakenly think the Bible teaches the earth is 6000 years old, even though Genesis 1:1-3 relates the earth and its oceans were already here before God began Creation Week. This article reconciles the scientific community's assertions about a pre-Adamic dinosaur world with the accounts of the scriptures which allow for the earth to be millions or billions of years old. Genesis 1 describes God's re-creation of life on earth after the pre-Adamic world of the dinosaurs was wiped out with an Extinction Level Event (putting the scriptures in harmony with science!).

Hidden Mountain Decalogue Tablet
The Ten Commandments written in ancient Paleo-Hebrew script were found in New Mexico many years ago, but few even know about this piece of evidence that ancient Israelites were present in North America. To read about these inscriptions and view them,
The Missing Simeonites
Those who liked the movie, 300, about the Spartans who fought the Persian army at Thermopylae, will like this article. The book of Numbers reveals that most of the Israelite tribe of Simeon left the Israelite encampment during the 40 years of wanderings and struck out on their own. Secular evidence indicates that these "missing Simeonites" founded the city-state of Sparta. You may want to watch the movie, 300, again after seeing the evidence that King Leonidas and his 300 Spartan warriors were Israelites.

Ten Tribes Audio Messages
God promised to multiply the ten tribes of Israel after their exile (Hosea 1:10), to not forsake them (Jeremiah 51:5), and Genesis 49 offers clues to locate them in the latter days. Biblical clues and much secular evidence make it possible to trace the migrating ten tribes throughout history. You may learn the main points of my books on the ten tribes by listening to these free audio messages about the forgotten history of the ten tribes of Israel.

Ten Tribes Radio Messages
In this live radio program previously aired on Israel National Radio, Mr. Collins is interviewed by Tamar Yonah about the physical evidence indicating that Israelite and Jewish explorers and settlers were present in ancient North America as long ago as the reign of King Solomon!
Steven M. Collins, Author and Lecturer | The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel
Steven M. Collins has authored five books documenting the migrations, kingdoms and locations of the biblical ten tribes of Israel after their exile from the Promised Land. He has also written many articles on a variety of biblical topics, prophecy related to the modern tribes of Israel and presented lectures to various audiences.
After a career-ending injury, Mr. Collins directed his research skills to a comparison of secular historical records with the historical accounts of the Bible.
The author is a former Board member of the Association for Christian Development (ACD), Auburn, WA, and a member of the former National Epigraphic Society founded by Dr. Barry Fell. However, his books represent the analysis and judgments of the author, and do not claim to represent the views of either organization.

"Call to Decision" Network Radio Show Interview
This Pastor Butch Paugh interview with Steven Collins focuses mostly on the USA in biblical prophecy and the history of the ten tribes of Israel. Other topics include the real meaning of the term "Caucasian," and the widespread misunderstanding in modern Christianity re: the critical difference between the terms "Israel" and "Judah" in biblical narratives and prophecy. The interview also includes information on how people can order books directly from the author if they choose not to use credit cards in on-line purchases. The link includes commercial breaks and an interesting and diverse set of live call-in questions from listeners to the broadcast.

Twisted Radio Show Interview
This new radio interview on a "prepper" radio/blogtalk network was aired live on March 17, 2011. The first 45 minutes examine "prepper" issues, and the remaining 75 minutes include the interview with me. Discussion topics include the clear evidence which identifies the USA in "latter-day" biblical prophecy, the critical difference between the biblical terms "Israel" and "Judah" in applying biblical prophecies to the modern world, and which modern nations in the world have descended from Shem, Ham and Japheth (Noah's sons). Also discussed is the fact that the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy reveals, in advance, both the motives and tactics that will be used by the Gog-Magog alliance of Russia, China, Iran and their allies when they launch a surprise attack against the USA at the end of our age before the return of Jesus Christ. The precise fulfillment of very ancient biblical prophecies proves that the Creator God of the Bible is in overall control of the destinies of modern nations.

New GEO Satellite Radio Interview Re: Mr. Collins' Books
In late January, 2011, Mr. Collins was interviewed on the GEO satellite radio network. This is a separate radio network from the TruNews.com shortwave radio network interviews listed below. This interview with host, James Lloyd, featured a broad discussion of the history and migrations of the ten tribes of Israel after their exile. This approximately one-hour interview, while heard on satellite radio, can be listened to at the link below. This interview was rather unique in that it included a discussion of the Israelite origins of the ancient Greek city-state of Sparta and the fact that Spartan kings and Jewish High Priest exchanged letters in which they agree that they were ancient "kinsmen." The interview includes information on which tribe the Spartans descended from and their likely biblical origins. Excerpts of those letter exchanges are included in this interview. To hear the broadcast, click here.
Shortwave Radio Broadcasts on TruNews.com (click date to hear broadcast)
Featured such topics as the history and modern locations of the ten tribes of Israel, the reasons why King Herod and the entire city of Jerusalem was frightened by the arrival of the Parthian Wise Men to visit the Christ-child (Matthew 2:3), the USA in biblical prophecy, why Christians think "Israel" and Judah," when mentioned in biblical prophecy, designate the same people when they do not, the founding and destiny of the Israeli nation in biblical prophecy.
Focused on the latter-day prophecy of Ezekiel 38-39, Christian misconceptions about the modern nations targeted by the Gog-Magog alliance and the serious implications this prophecy has for the USA and the Western world.
Discussed the ancient Israelite empire of Parthia, which often fought the Roman Empire and which fulfilled a prophecy in Isaiah 14:2. Other topics included answers to follow-up questions about the subject matter of the first two broadcasts.
Discussed the crisis in Egypt and the dangers posed if the Moslem Brotherhood takes over Egypt and gains control of the Suez Canal. Also discussed is the history of ancient Carthage and evidence that the Israelites founded Carthage. Carthage's presence in ancient North America is examined as are surprising biblical ramifications of Hannibal's invasion of Italy.
This was the first half of a two-part interview program with guests Jim Haddock and Steven Collins. The roles of the Stern gang and Haganah in the founding of the Jewish nation in 1948 were discussed as were prophecies about the Jewish nation in the latter days. The biblical prophecies about the roles of the modern nations descended from the ancient ten tribes of Israel (which are not the same as the modern Jewish nation called "Judah" in the Bible) are discussed and applied to modern nations.
This is the second part of a two-part interview program in which host, Rick Wiles, interviewed guests Jim Haddock and Steven Collins. This program continues the discussion about prophecies re: both Judah and the ten tribes of Israel in the latter days, and examines the topic of whether the Jews will embrace Jesus Christ as the Savior when he returns as the Conquering Messiah. It examines whether the Ezekiel 38-39 war is the same as the Armageddon War of Revelation 16.The second portion of this interview delves into the controversial subject of the pre-Flood world of Noah. Was it a high-tech society like our own? Was it the "Atlantis" of Greek legends? What was it about the "tower of Babel" that moved God to take the decisive action of confusing mankind's languages to halt that project?
Notices will be posted on my blog to give readers advance notice about future radio broadcasts and their subject matter.
Are You Ready to Rule?
The reward of the saved includes kingship in Jesus Christ's government during his millennial reign (Revelation 20:4). This is a vague concept to many Christians, and many do not realize that Jesus Christ gave specific "pass-fail" requirements that Christians must meet in this life to be given rulership privileges in the millennium. Those requirements are not well-understood, and this one-hour audio message details those requirements (which some will find surprising!). This message was given to a Sabbatarian audience during the Feast of Tabernacles in 2003. It may include terminology unfamiliar to some listeners, but the material will be very understandable to Christians of any denomination. This message includes some intense material drawn from my personal experiences in the 1980s when I spent much prolonged time meeting the wounded "sinners and publicans" of this world—the people Christians will first rule in the millennium. After hearing this message, you will have a much clearer grasp of whether you have the character and attitudes necessary to be "ready to rule" according to Jesus Christ's biblical requirements.

Mr. Collins did three new radio programs in early March on station KPJC
in Salem, OR. KPJC has a Messianic/Hebrew Roots format. The three new radio programs feature Mr. Collins answering questions on this subject from the radio hosts and live listener call-ins. The first two programs address the history of the ten tribes of Israel and the third program includes listener questions and my latest views on biblical prophecies being fulfilled in the modern world.

Prophecies for Modern Nations
Biblical Teachings Regarding the Gift of Tongues and Glossolalia
This is a topic that is of great interest to some and little interest to others. Whichever category you are in as a reader, I think is important for you to understand this topic from a biblically based perspective, as you will almost surely come into contact with Christians who have strong feelings about this topic. At the outset, I want to state that I do not consider myself to be the "last word" on this matter, but I will set forth viewpoints in this article that are as solidly based in biblical scriptures and teachings as I can make them.
I have known believers who are on opposite poles of the spectrum of belief on this subject and many who are anywhere in between in their beliefs or interests in the subject of speaking in tongues or glossolalia. I have friends who have zero interest in ever being around anyone who manifests any hint of glossolalia and I have friends who claim to speak in their own personal "prayer language." The subject of speaking in tongues and what was valid or dangerous about this trait was a very large issue in Paul's original apostolic churches. Paul wrote a great deal of guidance on this topic, and I think we would do well to heed his teachings about this topic and look to them as authoritative as they are in the New Testament Canon. Let's begin.

A New Look at the Seven Churches of Revelation
The book of Revelation begins with a message from Jesus Christ to the "Seven Churches" of latter-day Christianity. These prophesied churches have deep differences in doctrine, organizational structure and spiritual temperaments. In this 57-page PDF, Mr. Collins presents substantial evidence that these seven prophesied churches can be identified and found among the broad denominations and ideologies of modern Christianity. Jesus Christ has both compliments and strong warnings to the latter-day churches about their spiritual conditions, and there are major surprises when one literally applies Christ's messages to the denominations of modern Christianity. See how the prophecy of Revelation 2-3 literally has been fulfilled by modern Christian denominations.

What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals About a Future World War III
Ezekiel 38-39 prophesied over 2500 years ago that Russia, China and Iran would form an anti-western alliance and that they would attack the western nations in an age-ending World War III. The Bible was precisely accurate in its prophecy about their alliance forming so you can rely on the rest of this prophecy to be accurate. This link offers a research report on how Ezekiel 38-39 foretells World War III will start and how it will end.

Should Christians Prepare
for Hard Times?
Many Christians understand that we are living in the biblical latter days and that many prophecies warn that very challenging and difficult times lie ahead of us. Should Christians simply "have faith" and rely on God to do everything to protect them in the future or should they make prudent preparations for these prophesied hard times. This article examines the subject from a biblical perspective and gives a clear answer to that question. Click here.
This article examines the Bible's commands on how Christians are to relate to their respective governments. This is a very important topic both for our modern times and especially for the prophesied times ahead of us. For example, should you pay taxes and vote? (I strongly believe the biblical answers to both those questions are "yes.") Heeding the biblical teachings cited in this article could save you and your families from needless troubles in the future. Click here.
Are We Living in the
Biblical "Latter Days?"
The Bible has many prophecies about a climactic period to our age called the "latter days." These prophecies are specific and confirmable, and modern events have come to pass exactly as the Bible foretold millennia ago. For so many prophecies about the latter days to come to pass at the same time in our age confirms that there is a Creator God and that the Bible is his inspired word to mankind. This article will increase the faith of all believers and severely challenge the doubts of those who are atheists and biblical skeptics. Click here.
Is "Babylon the Great" about to Fall... Ushering in a Global "Beast" System?
Revelation 17-18 prophesy that the current globalist corporate-political system will collapse in the latter days and be replaced by a new global "beast" system. Our current system almost collapsed in September, 2008 so this prophecy could be fulfilled soon. The report at this link will examine how this prophecy could be fulfilled and how it could affect you.

The United States in Bible Prophecy
Most Christians think the USA is not mentioned in the Bible's prophecies about the latter days. The USA is discussed in biblical prophecies but Christians have not recognized the Bible's clues about the USA because of some critical misconceptions.To examine the evidence that the USA's founding and destiny is addressed in the scriptures, I invite you to read this timely research report.

How Many Will God Save?
Christians generally assume that the unsaved either are tormented forever in "hell," or are annihilated into non-existence in a final lake of fire. However, there is another alternative outcome for the unsaved that is found in scriptural teachings, especially when one key Greek word is translated literally and consistently in afterlife contexts. The Bible also teaches that God has a plan of ages involving mankind on earth and that there is more than one resurrection. This controversial audio message offers an entirely new (and encouraging) perspective on afterlife issues.

The Two Witnesses
The Two Witnesses are prophesied in Revelation 11 to apparently be the most powerful prophets of God who have ever walked the earth. The miracles they will do, the length of their ministry and how their period of service will end is all revealed in the Bible. Biblical prophecy also reveals there will be an evil "twosome" (the beast and false prophet) who will be popular global figures and they will do miracles as well in the latter days. Will you be able to tell the difference between them? Don't be so sure as the Bible warns the vast majority of the world will be deceived into thinking the evil twosome is not evil at all! You need the information in this report to understand God's Word about these competing twosomes before they emerge on the world scene in our future.

Christianity has deeply misunderstood the topic of biblical tithing. For example, the Bible shows that the tithing laws of ancient Israel applied to one particular section of the Israelite population and only to certain specified classes of income. Jewish reference sources make this very clear. Are you aware of the biblical chapter where a prophet clearly told the Israelites that God himself was nullifying his own previously-given tithing laws? If the New Testament church practiced tithing, why didn't Paul ever mention tithing in any of his epistles? This article will examine the subject of tithing from a literal biblical perspective and place the scriptures about tithing in a proper historical context. What aspects of Old Testament tithing laws apply in New Testament times? I believe most readers will find this article very liberating and it will make it a much more cheerful act to give to God.
