The above are simply bases of which you may continue your personal studies. Please do not assume that what is stated above is all the information you will need. If you only use the references we provide you will be short changing yourself.
This particular study will focus on what happened to the 12 Tribes of Isra’el following the reign of Sh’lomo/Salomon and the sins he committed. You will find this record in M’lekim Alef/1 Kings 10:26-12:33. The judgments that follow are enhanced by Yarov’am/Jeroboam I, who because of his fear changed many of the statutes of the Torah in order to accommodate his position as king. These changes become an ongoing problem for the Northern Kingdom. Reference is made throughout the records of the Kings and the other Prophetic writings with the term “and he continued in the sins of Yarov’am”. A phrase which only appears in reference to the 10 Tribes of the Northern Kingdom.
Unless the readers of the Bible are aware of the proceeding facts their interpretation will be faulty, as it will leave out vital information pertaining to the Lost Sheep of the House of Isra’el. Let us go back to B’reshit/Genesis chapter 11:27-32 (DRA); And these are the generations of Thare: Thare begot Abram, Nachor, and Aran. And Aran begot Lot. And Aran died before Thare his father, in the land of his nativity in Ur of the Chaldees. And Abram and Nachor married wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai: and the name of Nachor’s wife, Melcha, the daughter of Aran, father of Melcha and father of Jescha. And Sarai was barren, and had no children. And Thare took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Aran, his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter in law, the wife of Abram his son, and brought them out of Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Chanaan: and they came as far as Haran, and dwelt there. And the days of Thare were two hundred and five years, and he died in Haran. If you notice Avraham is called out of his fathers house in Charan, not in Ur, as Terach/Thare (as said above) takes them to Charan.
And God appeared to Jacob again when he came from Paddan-Aram, and he blessed him. And God said to him, “Your name [is] Jacob. Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name.” Then his name was called Israel. And God said to him, “I [am] El-Shaddai. Be fruitful and multiply. A nation and an assemblage of nations shall be from you, and kings shall go out from your loins. And [as for] the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give it to you. And to your descendants after you I will give the land. B’reshit 35:9-11 (LEB) In the above passage the word nations is also translated gentiles or heathen. Therefore in understanding the covenant one must realize only Isra’el (12 tribes) is in this covenant. Those who do not understand who the covenant is with, make a big mistake if they presume this is with everyone.
We are neither Jew nor Gentile but Isra’el. The Olive Tree is Isra’el and not the pagans. Because this issue is so grossly misinterpreted, many who read the scriptures have been deceived into thinking everything is allegorical. So many in the predominance of Christianity and Judaism have excepted a mythical perspective on these teachings. As there is no scriptural basis for the immortal soul, resurrection has been relegated to a magical perspective. If this were true, then what happened in the garden would be of no value as a warning to all of humanity. Anoki apar v’apir (I am dust and ashes) means nothing if we do not understand what our father Avraham was referring to.
This goes back to B’reshit chapter 3 when after the rebellion in the garden, Yah informs Adam of the consequences his actions. To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living. The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the Lord God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.” So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life. B’reshit 3:17-24 (NIV)
In the above reference notice that humanity is not kept out of the garden for solely arbitrary reasons but for exactly what Yah said. Yah did not say we could not come back if we are willing to obey but we cannot return simply because we want to. When we consider these facts we must realize our actions are preventing us from returning to the garden. We must realize only in the garden do we have eternal life by eating of the Tree of Life. This is not a mystical, mumbo jumbo gobbily gook understanding based on feelings. According to the Torah, love and hate are actions not feelings. What this means is that what I feel is not about what I do, actions and feelings are not the same thing. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. Yochanan/John 14:15-17 (ESV)
Many have been led to believe that what we feel is equivalent to what we do. However, Y’shua himself disputes this thought line. This is addressed by the Master in the following: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!’ Mattityahu/Matthew 7:21-24 (ISR98)
Y’shua clarifies this by saying: So Jesus said, “When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.” As He spoke these things, many came to believe in Him. Yochanan 8:28-30 (NASB) Y’shua here is reminding us that he is obedient to the Father as we should be.

|Merriam-Webster Dictionary: Exile|
The above definitions of Exile involve the following; as to the first aspect, this would mean the inclusion of banishment, being expelled, being forbidden to return for a limited time, or in perpetuity. As for the second; involves abandoning, self removal, and separation. Regardless of which definition of Exile that one is in you are no longer in the land of your people.
Pertaining to the Covenant with Isra’el given at Mount Sinai, Yah makes it perfectly clear that His favor is tied to the land promise. This promise is not open ended which He also makes clear by informing us if we take up the ways of the Kena’ani/Canaanites, merchants, then he will expel us from the land the same way we were to drive them out. Unfortunately most do not realize that the Kena’ani had to be in a covenant in order to be judged. This is not the same covenant that Isra’el is in. If this is a surprise to you, then you need to go back and read Torah starting at the beginning in B’reshit/Genesis.
In D’varim/Deuteronomy chapter 29 we are warned that Yah will not overlook us if we praise ourselves and think we are complete, even though we walk in stubbornness of heart. And He will not forgive us, allowing every curse in the Torah to come upon us, blotting out our names from under Sh’mayim/Heaven. Likewise He will separate us out of all the tribes of Isra’el for evil according to all the curses of the covenant written in this book.
The nations will witness this and wonder why Isra’el has been treated so harshly. They will realize that Isra’el is suffering because they have broken the Covenant of Yah, Elohei of their fathers. This Covenant is the one He made with us when He brought us out of Egypt.
When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son. Hoshea 11:1 (ESV) When this verse is used by Mattityahu, very few are aware this is from Hoshea chapter 11 and that Hoshea was a Prophet to the 10 tribes of the Northern Kingdom. This Prophet was not of the Kingdom or House of Y’hudah, wherefore his message is predominately to his own people, the house of Isra’el. The entirety of Hoshea’s writing concerns Samaria and its sins against Yah. Remember the following terms the 10 tribes, Northern Kingdom, Samaria, Efraim, are all references to the house of Isra’el beginning with the reign of King Yarov’am I.
There were 19 kings in the north during its tenure in the land, 10 ascended the throne by heredity and nine by coups. Not 1 of the 19 was considered righteous by Yah. This is why they continued to spiral downward until finally they were conquered and removed from their inheritance by the Kingdom of Assyria. Yah allowed this to take place because Isra’el sought reliance on the Assyrians for their protection and prosperity. If one is not knowledgeable as to the differences between how the Father deals with Isra’el and Y’hudah, they will most likely presume the reference terms for the two are interchangeable. And this will lead to nothing but misunderstanding the importance of the restoration of the Kingdom of Yah.
All the Prophets address one or both of the two separate houses which compose the Whole House of Isra’el. Especially concerning to myself is the ignorance of this issue addressed so frequently by the messengers of Yah, and how it perverts the understanding of the dry bones, the two sticks, and the New Covenant. It is referred to as the New Covenant, not because it is different, but because the previous one is broken which makes it null and void. Interestingly this happened at Mount Sinai when Moshe broke the first set of tablets and had to acquire the second set to re-establish the Covenant.
Regarding the above paragraph and its explanation, Y’shua could not have established a different covenant otherwise he is a liar. Many may be offended by this statement but it is based on Y’shua’s own testimony. Said testimony is derived from Y’shua’s claim that he speaks and does only His Father’s will. Had he done anything contrary to what Moshe was told, he would be baring false witness.
When the Master proclaimed that he came only for the Lost Sheep of the House of Isra’el, he is pointing out the promises the Father has made to Avraham and his descendants. This promise correlates to a land inheritance specifically laid out by Yah and any other definition of this inheritance is moving a boundary marker, trespassing. Any land other than that specified as the portion for Ya’akov’s/Jacob’s descendants is in violation of the passage that declares all nations are given their inheritance by Yah. When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of men, he fixed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. D’varim 32:8 (RSV)
Every time someone makes a statement declaring that the Promised Land for Isra’el is any place we set our foot is in violation of the previous verse and is calling Yah a liar. ADONAI said to Avram, after Lot had moved away from him, “Look all around you from where you are, to the north, the south, the east and the west. All the land you see I will give to you and your descendants forever, and I will make your descendants as numerous as the specks of dust on the earth – so that if a person can count the specks of dust on the earth, then your descendants can be counted. Get up and walk through the length and breadth of the land, because I will give it to you.” Avram moved his tent and came to live by the oaks of Mamre, which are in Hevron. There he built an altar to ADONAI. B’reshit 13:14-18 (CJB) Y’hoshua/Joshua is told by Yah the same instructions as follows: Now it came to pass after the death of Moses the servant of Jehovah, that Jehovah spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying, Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it, as I spake unto Moses. From the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your border. Y’hoshua 1:1-4 (ASV) So let us not forget: Thou shalt not steal. Exodus 20:13 (15) (KJV)
It is dangerous to take any scripture and apply an alien context to it. This is one of the problems encountered by readers of Chazon/Revelation chapters 21 & 22 if you reinterpret the New Yerushalayim as Heaven, or the following verses: Do not think that I came to annul the Torah or the Prophets; I did not come to annul, but to fulfill. Truly I say to you, Until the heaven and the earth pass away, in no way shall one yod or one stroke pass away from the Torah until all comes to pass. Therefore, whoever loosens one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the worst in the kingdom of Heaven. But whoever does and teaches them, this one shall be called great in the kingdom of Heaven. Mattityahu 5:17-19 (HRB) It is the LORD who provides the sun to light the day and the moon and stars to light the night. It is he who stirs the sea into roaring waves. His name is the LORD Almighty, and this is what he says: “I am as likely to reject my people Israel as I am to do away with the laws of nature! Just as the heavens cannot be measured and the foundation of the earth cannot be explored, so I will not consider casting them away forever for their sins. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Yirmeyahu/Jeremiah 31:35-37 (NLT) Just as Moshe called Heaven and Earth as witnesses, against Isra’el, should they break the Covenant; therefore the Covenant Y’shua is establishing cannot be a different Covenant and different witnesses than the one at Mount Sinai.
Some of you may be aware that the Torah is not binding on anyone not in the Covenant proclaimed at Mount Sinai, however everyone is in a Covenant with Yah whether they believe it or not. In not realizing covenants and their levels, they apply differently according to which covenant you are under. Certain aspects of the Mount Sinai Covenant are unique to the 12 tribes of Isra’el. Those that do not understand this often arrive at inaccurate conclusions and expect promises, specific to the land, to apply any place they want them to. The Commandments, which contain promises regarding the land, only apply to the areas mentioned in the previous paragraph where Avraham is instructed to look over and then walk upon that soil. Yah never says everyplace we set our foot but everyplace within the defined perimeters He gives us.
This teaching is an attempt to help those new to the understanding of the Promised Land. I do not know how long it will take to incorporate the minimal amount of information to allow people to fathom what teachers in the Two House Movement are trying to relay to the students. There is no way any teacher could encompass the entirety of the scriptures dealing with this topic. It is only possible to take what we have been given and add it to what others have had revealed to them and weigh it according to Torah. No individual has received the entirety of the Revelation as we each still have some blinders. This is only the beginning of what I feel I have personally been charged with sharing with those who read this material. This is merely the beginning of this effort.
Please keep in prayer ourselves and others out there who have been assigned the charge to deliver the insight Yah has favored us with. It is a responsibility that no one should take lightly. Thank you for trusting us to deliver the package we have been entrusted with. Hopefully this is proving to edify and uplift all of you who peruse it.
