The Reconciling

The House of Israel and the House of Judah have been divided since sometime between 997 BCE and 928 BCE; There are varying opinions about the date. There is no varying opinion, however, about the reuniting of the two houses. The two houses will be reunited and it will be an amazing event.  Study and show yourself to be a Berean. You know who the house of Judah is.  Who is the house of Israel? The blinders are coming off and the House of Israel is beginning to see who they are. The miracle of Hannah/Ruth will carry the message of reconciliation to YHWH, between the two houses, and within the two houses.   

 Be amazed, be amazed for YHWH is working a work in your day that even if you were told, you would not believe!!

 (Habakkuk 1:5)

Sad, Sad…..

And he said, Then I beg you, father, that you send him to my father’s house;(for I have five brothers, so that he may witness to them, that they not also come to this place of torment). 

 Abraham said to him, They have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them.  But he said, No, father Abraham, but if one should go from the dead to them, they will repent…And he said to him,

 If they will not hear Moses and the Prophets,

 they will not be persuaded

even if one from the dead should rise.  

Luke 16:27-30 

Even when it happens, folks will STILL not believe….Sad, sad 

How Does It Further HIS Kingdom?

Admittedly, we sometimes face “gray areas” —

things that are not necessarily forbidden by the Bible,

But still may not belong in our lives.

When you are unsure whether or not something is wrong,

Ask yourself these questions: Does it glorify YHWH?

Can I offer a prayer of thanksgiving for it?

Does it draw me closer to Yahshua,

or does it make me preoccupied with this world?

Will it harm my health or hurt me in some other way?

Will it cause someone else to stumble spiritually or morally,

especially a less mature Believer?

I have never forgotten what a wise Believer said to me many years ago:

“When in doubt — don’t”

From Billy Graham’s “The Journey”

Where Are They Hiding?

It was about 4000 years ago that Jacob (Israel) begat twelve sons, who became the fathers of the twelve tribes of Israel.  It is amazing how prolific this family was. In a matter of 430 years, Israel grew from only 70 souls to about 2,500,000 people.   

I have often pondered these numbers.  If there has been approximately 4,000 years since the time the 12 brothers walked the earth, how many Israelite progeny should there be on the earth today? Let’s consider some numbers; I think you will be astounded.

During this 430 year period, the Israelites doubled their population about every 29 years.  Now, to be on the conservative side, let us assume that after they left Egypt and for the next 3500 years, these 2.5 million people  doubled only every 350 years.  This slowed rate of reproduction will account for all the natural disasters, plagues, holocausts, wars and other premature deaths that have occurred during the course of history. So, get your calculator out and double 2.5 million 10 times. 

What is the total you came up with? 

My total was over 2.5 billion.  These are Israelites that should be alive today.  (And that is with extremely conservative figures.) 

Now, my question is: Where are all these people?  

“They” tell us there are only 12-15 millions Jews alive today.  The number we just calculated suggests that there is WAY more people with Israelite blood in the world today.

Where are these people?  And who are they today?

Consider these lyrics:

I’ll tell you a strange tale, A riddle, a rhyme.   A song sung by YHWH and passed down through time……A search for an answer, hunger to know…

So, ask about Israel, where did she go?  Oh where did He hide her; where does He keep her? 

When did millions and millions and millions of people forget?

Soon He’ll uncover, The world will discover

Israel, Israel, right here! 

 And they shall know that I am YHWH, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.  Ezekiel 12:15
