Master.….. Is It I?

After the death of Solomon, Israel was split by great civil war, which permanently divided the tribes of Israel into two hostile kingdoms—Israel and Judah.  Ten tribes went north to Israel; the tribes of Judah and Benjamin went south to Judah.  Thus, in scripture, YHWH addresses two different groups:  “the house of Israel” and the “house of Judah.”

The Northern kingdom, Israel, turned immediately to pagan practices and as a result was the first to go into captivity by Assyria’s hand in approximately 721 BC.  The Southern Kingdom, Judah, followed about one hundred and forty years later in 586 BC when it was captured by Babylon.

What most people do not realize is that before the final collapse of the Northern Kingdom, the vast majority of Israelites had already migrated out of the northern land.  As they saw trouble coming, many left voluntarily.  A careful student of history will recognize the evidence of the mass migration of these tribes all over Asia and Europe. Huge numbers of Israelite people went to establish countries and cities such as Parthia and Carthage.  They settled in the British Isles, Spain, and all over Asia and Europe.  Over the years, they forgot about YHWH ways.  They merged into the goy—the nations—the Gentiles.

It was JUDAH that was given the job of keeping the TORAH in tact. (Gen 49:10).  And if you look at it objectively, you will recognize that Judah is but a small part of the entire population of Israelites.

So where are the rest of the tribes?  Where are Simeon, Rueben, Manasseh, Ephraim, etc?

YHWH tells us he will reunite the two houses at the end of days (Ezekiel 37).  If the house of Judah is primarily the Jews that we know and love, WHO is the House of Israel (also known as the house of Joseph and/or Ephraim)?  Who are the people that YHWH is going to unite with Judah?

The answer to this question unlocks a HUGE mystery in YHWH’s end-time work.

Remember the promise YHWH made to Jacob, the Father of the whole House of Israel, the twelve tribes:

….. I will deal well with you, and I will make your seed like the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. Genesis 32:12

For those truly seeking, I highly recommend the books by Steven Collins.  If you truly want to dig deeper, start with his landmark book called “The Lost Tribes of Israel…. Found!”.

After you do your research, you will be asking this question:  Master, is it I?

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to Elohim must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Hebrews 11:7-6
