How Did Ewe Get Here?

What is that which has been? the very thing which shall be: and what is that which has been done? the very thing which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Who is he that shall speak and say, Behold, this is new? it has already been in the ages that have passed before us. Qohelot/Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 (Sept.Brenton) The creation functions in a cyclical pattern as with the story of humanity, we begin when we were placed in the garden and we are promised we will again be able to reenter the garden as before. Disobedience took us out of the garden, only obedience will allow us to return. That is what washing our garments and making them white is about.

Yah’s redemption plan for humanity begins to focus by using a people called Isra’el to provide the path back to Him. Many misunderstand and think chosen means perfect, however Yah did not pick a perfect people for his plan. This should provide encouragement to other people, as Isra’el is far from an exquisite example. Let us begin to look at how Yah works even with imperfect human beings.

Let us move forward in the history of the 12 tribes and start our study during the reign of Melekh Shlomo/King Solomon. And Sovereign Shelomoh loved many foreign women in addition to the daughter of Pharaoh: Mo’aḇite, Ammonite, Eḏomite, Tsiḏonian, and Ḥittite women; from the nations of whom יהוה had said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, “You do not go into them, and they do not go into you, for they shall certainly turn away your hearts after their mighty ones.” Shelomoh clung to these in love. And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines. And his wives turned away his heart. And it came to be, when Shelomoh was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other mighty ones. And his heart was not perfect with יהוה his Elohim, as was the heart of his father Dawiḏ. And Shelomoh went after Ashtoreth the mighty one of the Tsiḏonians, and after Milkom the abomination of the Ammonites. Thus Shelomoh did evil in the eyes of יהוה, and did not follow יהוה completely, like his father Dawiḏ. Then Shelomoh built a high place for Kemosh the abomination of Mo’aḇ, on the hill that is east of Yerushalayim, and for Moleḵ the abomination of the children of Ammon. And so he did for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and slaughtered to their mighty ones. Therefore יהוה was enraged with Shelomoh, because his heart had turned away from יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, who had appeared to him twice, and had commanded him concerning this word, not to go after other mighty ones. But he did not guard what יהוה had commanded. And יהוה said to Shelomoh, “Because you have done this, and have not guarded My covenant and My laws, which I have commanded you, I shall certainly tear the reign away from you and give it to your servant. “Only, I do not do it in youre days, for the sake of your father Dawiḏ. Out of the hand of your son I shall tear it. “Only, I shall not tear away all the reign but give one tribe to your son for the sake of my servant Dawiḏ, and for the sake of Yerushalayim which I have chosen.” Melekhim Alef/1 Kings 11:1-13 (ISR98)

One of the keys to the above scripture reference is the word Nokri/Neker/Nakar which has to do with foreign or strange in most English translations. These Hebrew words have to do with disregard, ignore, reject, resign, dissimulate, estrange, adulterous, different, or alien. With this word we realize that Shlomo took women as wives who never became part of the covenant like Isra’el. In so doing Shlomo began to set an example detrimental to Isra’el. It is no wonder that the events following the course, which the king had set out, derailed the assignment which had been accepted by the people.

Idolatry is one of the most misunderstood concepts among those claiming to believe the writings of the Hebrew Prophets. This misunderstanding is rooted in the ignorance of Idolatry being a system of rules or regulations that one adheres to; therefore anything that Yah says and is ignored, by those claiming to be His people, is Idolatry. This would be much more relevant to people if they believed that the Torah is the rules of a government. Because the scriptures are treated as simply mystical and have no literal meaning, most do not realize, they are practicing some aspect of Idolatry. Following this train of thought prevents so many inserting themselves into the story that is being acted out on earth. If you are not loyal to the Kingdom of Yah then what kingdom/nation are you loyal to? Dual citizenship is not allowed by Yah.

Then Jeroboam fortified Shechem in the hill country of Ephraim and lived there. From there he went out and built up Peniel. Jeroboam thought to himself, “The kingdom will now likely revert to the house of David. If these people go up to offer sacrifices at the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem, they will again give their allegiance to their lord, Rehoboam king of Judah. They will kill me and return to King Rehoboam.” After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves. He said to the people, “It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.” One he set up in Bethel, and the other in Dan. And this thing became a sin; the people went even as far as Dan to worship the one there. Jeroboam built shrines on high places and appointed priests from all sorts of people, even though they were not Levites. He instituted a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the festival held in Judah, and offered sacrifices on the altar. This he did in Bethel, sacrificing to the calves he had made. And at Bethel he also installed priests at the high places he had made. On the fifteenth day of the eighth month, a month of his own choosing, he offered sacrifices on the altar he had built at Bethel. So he instituted the festival for the Israelites and went up to the altar to make offerings. Melekhim Alef 12:25-33 (NIV) After all this Jeroboam did not repent of his evil way but again set up priests from every class of people for the high places. Whoever so desired it, he ordained, and they became priests of the high places. For the house of Jeroboam, this was the sin that caused it to be wiped out and annihilated from the face of the earth. Melekhim Alef 13:33-34 (NIV) And Roboam came to Jerusalem, and called together all the house of Juda and of Benjamin, a hundred and fourscore thousand chosen men and warriors, to fight against Israel, and to bring back his kingdom to him. And the word of the Lord came to Semeias the man of God, saying: Speak to Roboam the son of Solomon the king of Juda, and to all Israel, in Juda and Benjamin. Thus saith the Lord: You shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren: let every man return to his own house, for by my will this thing has been done. And when they heard the word of the Lord, they returned, and did not go against Jeroboam, 2 Chronicles 11:1-4 (DRA) And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their border. For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons cast them off, that they should not execute the priest’s office unto Jehovah; and he appointed him priests for the high places, and for the he-goats, and for the calves which he had made. And after them, out of all the tribes of Israel, such as set their hearts to seek Jehovah, the God of Israel, came to Jerusalem to sacrifice unto Jehovah, the God of their fathers. So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years; for they walked three years in the way of David and Solomon. 2 Chronicles 11:13-17 (ASV)

The above verses clearly point out that the Levites and Cohanim/Priests wanted nothing to do with the government Yarov’am/Jeroboam was establishing in the Northern Kingdom. With this information we realize none of the priests of the house of Isra’el were Levi’im. Knowing that the priests positions were bought in Efraim, we can discern from that point forward the ten tribes had no legitimate priesthood according to Yah. Therefore all they taught the people were man made rules and regulations, mostly contrary to Yah’s will … and they continued in the sins of Yarov’am.

As we have laid the background for what exists to this day pertaining to the status of the 12 tribes, the house of Y’hudah and the house of Isra’el have not yet merged into a unified whole to this day. Yeckezk’el/Ezekiel 37 and Chazon/Revelation 20 are the proof that the New Covenant is not yet in force. If it were those in the territories across the globe such as the US, Russia, South Africa, etc., would be in the status outside the city gates of the New Yerushalayim. If anyone is outside the city gates, they are not in compliance with the Torah of Yah.

In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and deported Israel to Assyria. He placed them in Halah, in Habor, [in] the river [regions] of Gozan, and [in] the cities of the Medes. Now [this] happened because the {Israelites} had sinned against Yahweh their God when he brought them up from the land of Egypt from under the hand of Pharaoh the king of Egypt and they feared other gods. They walked in the statutes of the nations whom Yahweh had driven out from before the {Israelites}, which the kings of Israel had introduced. The {Israelites} secretly did things which [were] not right, against Yahweh their God; they built high places for themselves in all their towns, from the watchtower up to the fortified city. They set up for themselves stone pillars and poles of Asherah worship on every high hill and under every green tree. They burned incense there on all the high places, like the nations which Yahweh deported before them, and they did evil things to provoke Yahweh. They served idols which Yahweh had said to them, “You shall not do this thing!” Yahweh warned Israel and Judah by the hand of his every prophet, [with] every seer saying, “Turn from all of your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my ordinances, according to all the law which I commanded your ancestors, which I sent to you by the hand of my servants the prophets.” But they did not listen and they stiffened their necks, like the necks of their ancestors who did not believe in Yahweh their God. They rejected his statutes, his covenant which he {made} with their ancestors, and his warnings which he gave to them; and they went after the idols, became vain, and [went] after all the nations which [were] all around them, which Yahweh had commanded them not to do as they [did]. They abandoned all the commands of Yahweh their God and made for themselves two molten calf-shaped idols; they made a pole of Asherah worship and bowed down to the army of the heavens and served Baal. They made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, they practiced divination and read omens, and they sold themselves to do evil in the eyes of Yahweh to provoke him. So Yahweh was very angry with Israel and he removed them from his presence; none remained except the tribe of Judah alone. Even Judah did not keep the commands of Yahweh their God, and they walked in the customs of Israel which they introduced, so Yahweh rejected all the offspring of Israel and punished them, and he gave them into the hand of the plunderers until he banished them from his presence. For he had torn Israel from the house of David, and they made Jeroboam the son of Nebat king, but Jeroboam detached Israel from following Yahweh, and he made them sin a great sin. The {Israelites} walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he committed, and they did not depart from it, until Yahweh removed Israel from his presence as he had foretold by the hand of all his servants, the prophets. And so he deported Israel from upon his land to Assyria until this day. The king of Assyria brought from Babylonia, from Cush, from Arva, from Hamath, and Sepharvaim, and he settled [them] in the cities of Samaria in place of the {Israelites}, so they took possession of Samaria and lived in her cities. It happened that when they began living there, they did not fear Yahweh, so Yahweh sent lions among them, and they were killing them. So they said to the king of Assyria, “The nations whom you deported and settled in the cities of Samaria do not know the customs of the God of the land, so he sent lions among them, and now they are killing them because they do not know the customs of the God of the land.” Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, “Release one of the priests whom you deported from there, and let him go and settle there. Let him teach them the customs of the God of the land.” So one of the priests went, whom they had deported from Samaria, and he settled in Bethel and was teaching them how they should fear Yahweh. Yet every nation was making their gods, and they put them in the shrine of the high places that the Samaritans had made, every nation in their cities in which they [were] living. The men of Babylonia made Succoth Benoth; the men of Cush made Nergal; the men of Hamath made Ashima. The Arvites made Nibhaz and Tartak; the Sepharvites were burning their children in the fire to Adrammelech and Anammelech the gods of Sepharvaim. Those who were fearing Yahweh made priests of the high places {from among themselves}, and they were sacrificing for them in the shrines of the high places. Yahweh they were fearing, but their gods they were serving, according to the customs of the nations from which they were deported. Until this day they [are] doing according to their former customs; none of them [are] fearing Yahweh, and none of them [are] doing according to their statutes, to their decisions, to the law, or to the commands that Yahweh commanded the descendants of Jacob [to] which he had given the name Israel. Yahweh had {made} a covenant with them and commanded them, “You shall not fear other gods, nor shall you bow down to them, nor shall you serve them, nor shall you sacrifice to them. Rather, Yahweh, who brought you out from the land of Egypt with great strength and with an outstretched arm–him you shall fear, and to him you shall bow down, and to him you shall sacrifice. The statutes, the decisions, the law, and the commands that he wrote to you, you shall observe to do always, and you shall not fear other gods. The covenant that I have {made} with you, you shall not forget, and you shall not fear other gods. But Yahweh your God you shall fear, and he will deliver you from the hand of all of your enemies.” They did not listen but kept on doing according to their former customs. So these nations were fearing Yahweh, but they were serving their idols, as were their children and their children’s children; as their ancestors did, they [are] doing until this day. Melekhim Bet/2 Kings 17:6-41 (LEB)

In the above section of scripture the fate of the !0 Tribes is recorded and there exile began in full force. Likewise we are informed as to the identity of the people who are currently referred to as the Samaritans, as they are not of the 12 tribes. Ironically the Samaritans today want to be Isra’el while the descendants of the 10 Tribes do not want to be Isra’el because that would involve obedience. We are not saying either of the above groups is without hope but both need to come into alignment with Yah’s will, so to does the house of Y’hudah. No one at this time is in complete compliance with the statutes of the Kingdom, we all have work to do in this regard.

If you believe Y’shua is the Mashiach and that the New Covenant is in full force you have some issues to resolve:

  1. Why are you not in the New Yerushalayim?
  2. Why are there still teachers?
  3. Why are you not going to the New Yerushalayim every Shabat and New Moon?
  4. Why are you not going to the New Yerushalayim every Sukkot?

These are just the beginning of the questions that need to be answered.

And as He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when will these things be? And, what is the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age? And answering, Yahshua said to them, See that no man deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, I am the Messiah. And they will cause many to be deceived. For you are bound to hear of revolutions and rumor of wars. Watch out and do not be disturbed, for it is necessary that all these things happen, but it is not yet the end. For nation will be raised against nation and kingdom against kingdom; and there will be famines and plagues and earthquakes against many places. But all these are a beginning of sorrows. Then they will deliver you up to affliction, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. And then many will be offended, and they will deliver up one another and will hate one another. And many false prophets will be raised and will deceive many. And because lawlessness shall have been multiplied, the love of the many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end, that one will have eternal life. And this good news of the Kingdom shall be published in all the earth for a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come. And when you see the sign of uncleanness and desolation, that was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, which will stand in the holy place. He that reads let him understand. Then let those in Judea flee into the mountains; the one on the roof, let him not go down to take anything out of his house; and the one in the field, let him not turn back to take his garment. But woe to the ones having a child in womb, and to those nursing in those days! And pray that your flight will not occur in winter nor on the Sabbath. For there will be great suffering, such as has not happened from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be. And except those days were shortened, not any flesh would live. But on account of the chosen, those days will be shortened. Then if anyone says to you, Behold, here is the Messiah! Or, Here! Do not believe. For false Messiahs and false prophets will rise up. And they will give great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen. Behold, I tell you beforehand. Then if they say to you, Behold, He is in the wilderness; do not go out. Behold, He is in the inner rooms; do not believe. For as the lightning comes forth from the east and shines as far as the west, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man. For wherever the dead body may be, there the eagles will be gathered. And immediately after the suffering of those days the sun will be darkened and the moon will not give her light, and the stars will fall from the heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the heavens. And then all the tribes of the land will wail. And they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and much glory. And He will send His cherubs with a great sound of a large trumpet, and they will gather His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. Mattityahu/Matthew 24:3-31 (HRB)

If one does not understand many of the circumstances Y’shua is referring to, in the above chapter pertaining to events, that have already happened to the house of Y’hudah in the Maccabean period and the Roman dispersion; they will not realize that the gathering of the elect does not happen until the Tribulation takes place. There is no promise of the Great Escape as testing is part of us displaying who we trust and Yah wants to know, do we trust Him. Yah is not looking for a bunch of selfish babies.

Lack of trust is why Isra’el is in EXILE. So many seem to believe there is only one individual to which the word Mashiach/Messiah/Christ applies, this is a grave error. This confusion stems from not knowing what a Mashiach is. The definition of the word Mashiach is one who is anointed with oil in order to carry out an assignment. An example is the following: Then Elisha the prophet called one of the sons of the prophets and said to him, “Tie up your garments, and take this flask of oil in your hand, and go to Ramoth-gilead. And when you arrive, look there for Jehu the son of Jehoshaph at, son of Nimshi. And go in and have him rise from among his fellows, and lead him to an inner chamber. Then take the flask of oil and pour it on his head and say, ‘Thus says the Lord, I anoint you king over Israel.’ Then open the door and flee; do not linger.” So the young man, the servant of the prophet, went to Ramoth-gilead. And when he came, behold, the commanders of the army were in council. And he said, “I have a word for you, O commander.” And Jehu said, “To which of us all?” And he said, “To you, O commander.” So he arose and went into the house. And the young man poured the oil on his head, saying to him, “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, I anoint you king over the people of the Lord, over Israel. Melekhim Bet 9:1-6 (ESV)

In the Tanakh/Old Testament there are more then ten persons who were anointed to carry out a mission. Y’shua was anointed for the most difficult task any Mashiach was ever asked to carry out. He volunteered to assume our punishment, the death penalty. The cup he drank at that meal with his talmidim/disciples was the agreement to take our place, this is why he asked the father if there is any other way to let the cup pass from him. His willingness to bear the consequences of that cup is far more important then most fathom. This is the cup of the Covenant established at Mount Sinai with the 12 tribes and any who joined them, and there is only one Covenant that this cup pertains to.

Drinking the cup is equal to taking a citizenship oath to become part of a people who have a common government. The Testimony of Y’shua declares that he only did what he saw his Father do and spoke only what his Father said. If Y’shua were condoning our sins by saying we do not have to obey anymore, he would be authorizing a coup against his Father’s Kingdom, which would make him his Father’s Satan/Adversary. Even Yeshua pointed out we cannot have or serve two masters.
