The Second Exodus—And YOU!

Jeremiah 23:3, 7–8. The Second Exodus of the End Times. The Bible clearly teaches that the ten tribes of the ancient northern kingdom of Israel (known biblically by various names such as the house of Israel, Samaria or Ephraim) were exiled among the nations of the world because of sin. At the same time, the biblical prophets and Jewish sages over the past 2000 years have predicted that in the end times (at the coming of the Messiah), through a series of supernatural events, these tribes will be regathered and return to the land of Israel to be reunited with their Jewish brethren who are descended from the southern kingdom of Judah. Furthermore, there is clear biblical and historical evidence that the ten northern tribes of Israel collectively known as Ephraim are largely to be found among the Christian peoples scattered across the earth. I have attempted to prove this point from biblical, linguistic, archeological, historical and rabbinic Jewish sources in a previous work.

In these last days before Messiah’s second coming, more and more redeemed believers in Yeshua (the Hebrew name for Jesus) are discovering a new-found love for the Jewish people and the land of Israel. At the same time, they are awakening to the need to return to the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith by adhering to a more Torah-centered lifestyle and spiritual walk. It then follows that some are coming to the fundamental truth taught numerous places in the Testimony of Yeshua (the more biblically accurate name for the “New Testament”) that born-again believers are actually redeemed Israelites and are either the literal biological or are the “grafted in” descendants of Abraham. As such, many are beginning to see that the numerous promises YHVH (the LORD) made to Abraham and his descendants apply to them—especially the promises that the land of Israel is an important aspect of their promised future inheritance. With these revelations often comes a new-found zeal and enthusiasm about returning to the land of Israel. For many, it is a question of not if, but “when do we return?”

Ephraim’s Return to the Land of Israel Is a Fundamental Truth of the Torah

As the very words of YHVH Elohim (the LORD God) dictated to and written down by Moses, the Torah (the biblical books of Genesis through Deuteronomy) is the bedrock of biblical truth upon which the rest of biblical revelation is founded. This is the place to begin when discussing the timing of Ephraim’s return.

In Jewish thought, Deuteronomy 30:1–10 is the embryo from which all the other scriptures discussing Ephraim’s return are birthed. Here YHVH promises to gather Israel from all the nations where he has scattered them (because of spiritual apostasy), and he promises to return them to the land of Israel. This prophecy has not yet been fulfilled, and nor is it referring to the Jewish captives who returned from their 70 years exile in Babylonian, since the term “all nations” is used in this prophecy. The ancient empire of Babylon is not “all nations”!

Here is the prophecy in its entirety:

And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, whither YHVH your Elohim has driven you, and shall return unto YHVH your Elohim, and shall obey his voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your heart, and with all your soul; that then YHVH your Elohim will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations, wherever YHVH your Elohim has scattered you. If any of you be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will YHVH your Elohim gather you, and from thence will he fetch you: and YHVH your Elohim will bring you into the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it; and he will do you good, and multiply you above your

fathers. And YHVH your Elohim will circumcise your heart, and the heart of your seed, to love YHVH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul, that you may live. And YHVH your Elohim will put all these curses upon your enemies, and on them that hate you, which persecuted you. And you shall return and obey the voice of YHVH, and do all his commandments which I command you this day. And YHVH your Elohim will make you plenteous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your land, for good: for YHVH will again rejoice over you for good, as he rejoiced over your fathers: if you shall hearken unto the voice of
YHVH your Elohim, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if you turn unto YHVH your Elohim with all your heart, and with all your soul. (emphasis added)

  1. The vast majority of Christians believe that the Jews fulfilled many major prophecies in 1948 with the Declaration of Establishment of State of Israel. But this alleged fulfillment of the “dem dry bones” prophecy of Ezekiel 37 is only a tiny foretaste of what is about to happen—after yet another holocaust and yet another enslavement! (Isaiah Chapters 3 & 4; 10; 24; 33; Ezekiel Chapters 5; 8; 9; 11; 14; 15; 16. The coming holocaust and enslavement of all 12 tribes will dwarf what happened to the tribe of Judah under Hitler.

    Many people, particularly the people loosely called Messianics believe that the Second Exodus of Israelites should be initiated now or in the near future by their own efforts. Their claim is that the Israelites who are descended from all 12 tribes (not just the Jews) will be a righteous Bible believing people who know their Elohim. Indeed some have actually moved to Israel already. The Biblical references mentioned here demonstrate conclusively that the Israelites who return will be totally oblivious to the Elohim of the Bible! They will come directly out of the Great Tribulation and only begin to learn who Elohim is when they are about to depart to Israel! “THEN they’ll know that I am Yehovah (Jehovah) their Elohim (God), since I caused them to go into captivity among the nations, and have gathered them to their own land…” (Ezekiel 30:28). There will not be a “saved” person among them in a spiritual sense, no, but a few million will be saved from death! Not one of them will have the kadosh spirit residing in them. They will not have committed themselves to Yehovah until they actually get to the wilderness border of Israel (Ezekiel 20:30-35) where the survivors of the Great Tribulation will be sifted again (Ezekiel 20:37-38) before gaining entry into the Country. Right up until this time they will be worshiping false gods. Yehovah will literally have to remove her from her baals (Hosea 2:14) and allure her back to Himself: “She’ll respond THERE as in the days of her youth, just like [just as ignorant as] when she came out of the land of Egypt” (Hosea 2:15). Prior to going there, these Israelites must literally be taken into foreign nations as slaves (Jeremiah 30:3,10). They must witness the near extermination of their compatriots (Isaiah 11:16). When Israel arrives in the land they will not come on boats or airplanes, they will be returned to the land of Israel with the fearful aid of the survivors of their enemies “on horses, and on chariots, and on litters, and on mules, and on dromedaries” (Isaiah 66:20) following enough war to have taken us back to the (mythical) stone age. No one from this group will arrive on a cloud (1st Thessalonians 4:14-17). You simply dont want to be there when that happens! Even the Two Witnesses dont survive this time (Revelation 11:7). Jerusalem will be the focal point of the Great Tribulation!
    When Yeshua’s desciples asked Him about the end of the age, He didnt say go occupy Judea—He said to flee Judea! (Matthew 24:3, 15-22)
    According to the prophecies, few Israelites will survive the wars, famines and disease epidemics (Ezekiel 6:11) predicted until Yeshua personally intervenes and turns the survivors living in Jerusalem into super warriors—a warrior bride (Zechariah 12:8-10). Only after all of this will this bride begin to understand and mourn her part in Yeshua’s death (Zec.12:10-13). After this battle these Israelites will rebuild the cities that have been destroyed (Isaiah 61:4) and greatly repopulate (Jeremiah 31:27) the Middle East and beyond. They will have been spiritual widows (Isaiah 54:4), but now there will be many literal widows (Isaiah 4:1). Once educated themselves tho, they will come under an everlasting covenant (Isaiah 61:8), and they will become priests (Isaiah 61:6; Ezekiel 47:11) in Israel. (Spirit born priests will also be there (Isaiah 30:21). The identity of the “lost” tribes will be known to everyone (Isaiah 61:9). Israel will be like a bride adorned for her husband (Isaiah 61:10). The bride, Israel, will be married to the now Kadosh Land (Isaiah 62:4-5).

    While Israel is still actively involved in spiritual prostitution, that is still “treacherous”, “unfaithful” and “apostate”, she will get a wedding invitation from Elohim (Jeremiah 3:14)! Yehovah will heal (Jeremiah 30:17) the wounds that He had just inflicted on Israel (Jeremiah 30:14).

    These Israelites will not be expecting any of this, they want no part of it! (Isaiah 65:1). They are a rebellious (v.2) heathen (v.3) people who ultimately push Elohim too far (v.6). He will end up exterminating most of Israel (v.8), but save some of the better people (as in Jeremiah 24) of the lost tribes and of the Jews for seed stock (v.9). The millennium is not silently inserted between Isaiah 65 verses 16 and 17. Save the millennium for Revelation 20.
