We have just seen how this False Temple on the verge of being rebuilt in modern day Jerusalem, Israel will cast a spell that will captivate millions! Once the Islamic Leaders have been effectively neutralized, Christians Zionists, Messianics, New Age Leaders and many more will become united around this newly built Temple.
We have also seen how glorious and truly wonderful the REAL Temple will be that YahShua Himself will build and rule from for 1000 years. (Zechariah 6:12-18, Zechariah 14)
However, it is VITALLY IMPORTANT that we understand a very important truth that will happen JUST BEFORE YahShua builds His glorious Temple -- it is the TRUE regathering of Ephraim and Judah.
Who is Ephraim and Judah?
First, a little history. Shortly after King Solomon died, the nation of Israel was plunged into civil war. The 10 northern tribes became known as Israel or Ephraim, while the two southern tribes of Judah and Benjamin (also including the Levites who do not have a land inheritance) formed Judah.
Eventually the northern tribes of Israel/Ephraim were scattered throughout the world by their Assyrian captors. The southern tribes of Judah, however, only remained in Babylonian exile for 70 years before returning to rebuild Zerubbabel’s Temple.
Skipping forward to the 1st century, the 10 northern tribes, though scattered abroad for the past several hundred years by their Assyrian captors, still knew who they were and still had strong tries with the tribes of Judah.
However, skipping two THOUSAND years into our present age, the 10 northern tribes have now become completely assimilated into their respective cultures and have, in large part, forgotten who they are. They lost all ties with the Southern tribes (which are now only referred to as the Jewish People).
Remnants of Hebraic history can now be found in thousands of different cultures across the globe -- from Japan, to Native Americans, to many different cultures in between.
However, we have a VERY AMAZING prophecy found in Ezekiel 37:15-19.
“The Word of YHVH came again unto me saying, Moreover thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions. And JOIN THEM one to another into ONE stick; and they shall become ONE in thine hand.
“And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou meanest by these? Say unto them, Thus saith Adonai YHVH; Behold I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in Mine Hand!”
So we know, with ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY, that YHVH will bring back all 12 Tribes of Israel -- they will be joined into ONE people -- just as they once were.
But how exactly is this going to happen? After all, the northern tribes assimilated into almost all the cultures we have today -- many of them who are Christians. It is awesome to note that many Christians are returning to their Hebraic roots as they discover that obeying Torah is pleasing to their Jewish Messiah, YahShua.
Ezekiel 37 shows us EXACTLY how Judah and Ephraim are going to be brought together as ONE. Let us go back to the beginning of the chapter and watch this unfold before our eyes!
In verses 1-10, Ezekiel sees this incredible vision of a valley strewn with dead bones and YHVH asks the prophet the impossible -- CAN THESE BONES LIVE?
In awe-shocked wonder, Ezekiel watches as YHVH causes a mass resurrection. In vs 7, Ezekiel hears an incredible, ear-popping quake, and sees a shaking the likes he has never seen before. And as this happens, the bones begin to DO THE IMPOSSIBLE -- they snap together, muscle and flesh cover them, and Life from the very Breath of YHVH fills them!
Though Israel bemoans being cut off from the land, their bones long since dried in the grave, all hope being lost, YHVH spells it out clearly in verses 12/13/14 --
“Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith Adonai YHVH, Behold, O My people, I WILL OPEN YOUR GRAVES, AND CAUSE YOU TO COME UP OUT OF YOUR GRAVES, AND BRING YOU INTO THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
“And ye shall know that I am YHVH, when I HAVE OPENED YOUR GRAVES, O MY PEOPLE, AND BROUGHT YOU UP OUT OF YOUR GRAVES,
“And shall put My Ruach in you, and you shall live, AND I SHALL PLACE YOU IN YOUR OWN LAND: then shall ye know that I YHVH have spoken it, and performed it, saith YHVH.”
In other words -- the regathering of Eprhaim/Israel and Judah will NOT happen until the Messiah YahShua resurrects His people at the 7th Trumpet! Ezekiel 37 is clearly and obviously describing the VERY SAME event Apostle Shaul describes right in I Corinthians 15:42-43
“So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. It is sown in dishonor, it is RAISED IN GLORY. It is sown in weakness; it is RAISED IN POWER.”
And again in I Corinthians 15:52 -- “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump, for the trumpet shall sound, and the DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, and WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.”
Ezekiel 37 and YahShua’s Own Words
Let’s go back to Ezekiel 37 for a moment.
Notice in vs 21, in the context of joining Judah and Ephraim together, the text says:
“And say unto them, ‘Thus saith Adonai YHVH; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, AND WILL GATHER THEM ON EVERY SIDE, and bring them into their own land.”
Notice how that ALMOST COMPLETELY MATCHES YahShua’s Words when speaking of the resurrection at the end of the Tribulation here in Mark 13:27 --
“And then shall He send His angels, and shall gather together His Elect from the four winds, FROM THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH TO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE HEAVEN.
The resurrection of the righteous saints at the 7th -- last Trumpet in Revelation is the SAME -- I repeat -- is the SAME event as the TRUE regathering of Ephraim and Judah!
YahShua Himself will make them one in His Hand, when He calls the millions of saints that have died throughout all of the world’s history, along with those still living saints, up to meet Him in the air -- with a blast and with a MIGHTY Trumpet -- EXACTLY the “NOISE AND SHAKING” Ezekiel heard and saw in Ezekiel 37:7!
Psalm 110, a beautiful Messianic Psalm, prophecies of the time when YahShua will rule and reign with a rod out of Zion in vs 2.
Vs 3 so beautifully paints the resurrection -- the gathering of the House of Ephraim and Judah.
“Thy people shall be willing in the DAY OF THY POWER, in the BEAUTIES OF HOLINESS from the WOMB OF THE MORNING, You have the DEW OF THY YOUTH.”
The womb of the morning poetically turns out hearts and minds to the sky -- as we watch the sun rise in brilliance and majesty. Dew itself forms from water vapor that IS IN THE AIR from the prior evening. In other words, all His people will be ready and willing to rule and reign with YahShua when His People are resurrected into the sky, and come down with the King of Kings to rule on earth, just as the dew forms on grass in dawn’s first light!
Apostle Shaul captures this perfectly in I Thess 4:16-17:
“For YHVH Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the Voice of the Archangel, and with the Trump of Yah, and the dead in Messiah shall rise first.
“Then we which are alive and remain shall be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET YHVH IN THE AIR, and so shall we ever be with YHVH.”
The Importance of the Matter
Why am I stressing so loudly and clearly that the 7th Trumpet Resurrection of the Righteous is the SAME EVENT as the Regathering of Ephraim/Israel and Judah? Because there is a completely evil and sinister Luciferian plan to stage a FALSE regathering of Judah and Ephraim long before the 7th Trumpet ever blasts! This FALSE regathering deception will be the subject matter of the third, and final article in this series.
You will see how specific Messianic and Hebrew-Roots ministries are tied into this false regathering of Judah and Ephraim, and as with the False Temple -- this FALSE REGATHERING MUST BE AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS!
Now, please go read article #3, as it will contain the last of the information you will absolutely NEED to heed in order to avoid the terrible deception that is about to sweep across planet earth!
