From: Sophereth at Kirjath Sepher
To: those that have heard His Voice
Because of time restraints (September, 13-28th) this post today is a small, condensed, nutshell. We will revisit this great truth again and again as time goes on. It is by no means complete here today.
The Lord began restoring this great truth, by His Spirit, by His Word, starting, I believe in the late 70’s, through the 90’s. This is NOT a “new” doctrine. This is not a “different” gospel. This is the gospel of the KINGDOM. It is a well established restorational truth. You might not have heard it before, but you are hearing it today.
This is not a Jew thing.
This is an Israel thing.
Prayerfully take these scriptures and study them for yourself, asking the Lord to reveal them to you by His Spirit.
. When Solomon sinned, when Solomon worshipped Ashtoreth, and loved many strange women, the Lord RENT THE KINGDOM from him. The KINGDOM is RENT untill this very day. This is why Jesus said: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. THY KINGDOM COME. THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN….Matthew 6:9,10 This is why the disciples asked Jesus: Lord, wilt thou at this time RESTORE AGAIN THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL? Acts 1:6 And THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED in all the world for a witness unto all nations, and THEN shall the end come. Matthew 24:14 At that time of Solomon’s sin, the Lord divided, and scattered, and dispersed the Kingdom. 1Kings 11:1-13,26-40.
. Then, at that point, the 10 northern tribes were called Israel. (Ephraim). Ephraim was one of the tribes, but the name of Ephraim was also used for Israel, the 10 northern tribes.
. Only one tribe was left in the land. Only one tribe remained. Judah. (the Jews). (they had already absorbed Benjamin by this time.) The Lord left them in place for Jesus to come through, and for Jerusalem’s sake, and for David’s sake. 1Kings 11. Rehoboam, Solomons son, was their king. 1Kings 12
. Israel,(the 10 northern tribes) was initially led by Jeroboam. They worshipped golden calves. One in Beth-el, and one in Dan. They changed God’s feast days. ALL of 1Kings 12, especially verses 17,19,20,26-33. (in verse 28, Jeroboam said the exact words that the people said in Exodus 32:8 about the golden calf.) Israel (the 10 northern tribes) was eventually scattered and dispersed into every nation to eat unclean food and to worship other god’s. ALL of the book of Hosea, especially 9:3 Ezekiel 4:13 (too many scriptures in Ezekiel to write here)
. If you will look up: disperse, dispersed, dispersions in the Strongs Concordance, you will see that the Prophets, and also the New Testament writers, wrote not only to Judah (the Jews), but also to “the dispersed among the Gentiles”. Jeremiah told Israel, (the 10 northern tribes) in Chapter 25 verse 34: “the days of your dispersions are accomplished.” James writes in chapter 1:1: James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting. the Amplified says this: James, A servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes scattered abroad among the Gentiles in the dispersion: Greetings (rejoice)! The dispersion was done. It was complete. Israel was dispersed, scattered, among the gentile nations.
. Israel, Ephraim, (the 10 northern tribes) completely lost their identity. Lost sheep.
. Israel, Ephraim, (the 10 northern tribes) didn’t remember who they were any longer. Lost sheep.
. BUT, God’s plan was to gather them again! By the Gospel! By the blood!
. Jesus said: “I am not sent but to the Lost sheep of the house of ISRAEL! Matthew 10:6
. the gospel was preached to Judah (the Jews) first. Those that believed on Him were saved, born again, and became the early ekklesia. But as a nation, Judah (the Jews), rejected Him.
. THEN the Holy Ghost was given to the house of Cornelius. a Gentile.
. THEN the Lord sent Paul the Apostle INTO the Gentiles, TO TAKE OUT A PEOPLE FOR HIS NAME! Acts 15:14
. Jesus said: “My sheep hear my Voice and they follow me” John 10:27
. were you lost?
. did you hear His Voice when you were lost?
. did you follow Him when you heard His Voice when you were lost?
. and now you are found?
. then you are Israel.
