When the Bible is read especially from beginning to end, it is apparent that the tribes of Israel dominate the messages brought forth in the Scriptures. In these modern times, Israel is a small country in the Middle East but seems to attract massive amounts of world and media attention. Israel, a small nation in the Middle East was obscure from view to most of the modern world, obscure from the world’s population until a small group of Jews declared that they were an independent nation in 1948. For more on the history of modern Israel read YNCAs article, “The S-Word.”
When reviewing the recent history of the Jews, it seems they are always in trouble wherever they reside. In the twentieth century, the Jews were ridiculed, despised and millions were mass murdered by the German military, under the direction of Adolph Hitler.
After the surrender of the German, Japanese and other Axis forces people calling themselves Jews came from around the world to a small piece of land in the Middle East that became known as the nation of Israel. A small group of people, estimated to be less than 840,000 settled in this newly formed nation in 1948. The nation of Israel is still today a small country in land area and population. The population of the nation of Israel in 2014 was estimated to be less than 8 million, two hundred thousand. Source “The Jewish Virtual Library.”
Almost immediately after the Jews declared themselves to be an independent nation, they were attacked by some of the surrounding Arab nations. The newly formed tiny nation of Israel has survived numerous attacks from its Arab neighbor nations and is still subject to attacks from the Arabs that now have financial and military support from Iran, the nation of Persia in biblical history.

The Bible also has many Scriptures describing the wars and history of the Jews and the other 11 tribes of Israel. It seems that all the tribes of Israel were regularly at war with some kingdom or nations for most of their history covered in the Bible. The Old Testament covers the tribes of Israel from its beginning to prophecy that describes its future.
The tiny nation of Israel today is composed of only one tribe, Judah, and is smaller than many states in America. New York, California, Texas and others have populations larger than modern Israel. Yet, the violence against Israel has been almost constantly in the news since its formation as a modern nation beginning in 1948.
An interesting fact is that even though Israel is very small, it has been able to sustain itself from the nations that have warred against it; even though it has been outnumbered. Israel seems to have vastly technological superior weapons from the nations surrounding it even though it has been rumored Iran has been supplying advanced weaponry to the enemies of Israel.
Israel has received vast amounts of money and technological support from the United States for many years. It would seem a reasonable question to ask, why would the United States give Israel billions of dollars in support? What’s in this largeness giving for the United States? There are many people who consider themselves Jews or Jewish supporters in the U.S. who have considerable wealth and influence, but not enough to explain, why even non-Jews agree the U.S. should use taxpayer money to keep Israel from being overrun by its enemies.
Is the answer in the Bible? In the Old Testament, the scriptures were mostly written about the Twelve Tribes of Israel. The Israelites were descended from a man named Abraham. Both the Israelites and many other peoples were descendants of Abraham. The descendants of Ishmael, also a child of Abraham, a half-brother to Isaac, make up a large portion of the world’s population which many scholars believe comprise the Arab nations. There are written records of the Israelites lineage, in the Scriptures, with emphasis given to the lineage of the tribe of Judah to the birth of the Messiah, falsely named Jesus in English Bibles. The Messiah was descended through the line of David, who the Scriptures portray as the King of the Israelites and selected for that Kingship by the Creator Yahweh himself. 1st and 2nd Samuel. The English Versions of the Bible wrongly call the name of the Messiah Jesus. Read YNCAs article (The Biggest Lie Ever Told is in the Bible)
Many who read the Bible don’t seem to realize that the Scriptures reveal Israel is a witness to mankind, to reveal the existence and power of Elohim. (1Corinthians 10-13) Yahweh has put into written words what he has planned for humankind and Israel is an example for people to learn of the power and righteous nature of Elohim.
Also, Israel is much more than a small tiny nation in the Middle East occupied by only one of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
The lost sheep, as Yahshua refers to them in the Scriptures, Matthew 10:6 & 15:24, reside in the most powerful nations on Earth and have served as examples of Yahweh’s power without realizing their identity. People must put their faith in the Creator and study his word to carry out his will, or they will suffer the same fate of those who consider themselves wise.
1 Cor 3:18-21
18 Do not deceive yourselves. If any one of you thinks he is wise by the standards of this age, he should become a “fool” so that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: “He catches the wise in their craftiness”; 20 and again, “The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” 21
The descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that remain after devastation is brought to earth by Yahweh are referred to in the scriptures as a remnant, and that remnant will receive the land promised to their fore fathers, despite their violation of Yahweh’s laws and statues according to the written scriptures.
27 Isaiah cries out concerning Israel, “THOUGH THE NUMBER OF THE SONS OF ISRAEL BE LIKE THE SAND OF THE SEA, IT IS THE REMNANT THAT WILL BE SAVED; 28 FOR THE LORD WILL EXECUTE HIS WORD ON THE EARTH, THOROUGHLY AND QUICKLY.” 29 And just as Isaiah foretold,
“UNLESS THE LORD OF SABAOTH HAD LEFT TO US POSTERITY,
WE WOULD HAVE BECOME LIKE SODOM, AND WOULD HAVE RESEMBLED GOMORRAH.”
“I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number.
“So then, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when people will no longer say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,’ 8 but they will say, ‘As surely as the Lord lives, who brought the descendants of Israel up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.’ Then they will live in their own land.”
Yahweh inspired Jeremiah to write that Yahweh will gather a remnant of his flock, he defines as Israel, in Jeremiah chapter 23 verse eight and he will place them on their own land, which is described in the book of Ezekiel chapters 47&48.
13 Thus says the Lord God, “This shall be the boundary by which you shall divide the land for an inheritance among the twelve tribes of Israel; Joseph shall have two portions. 14 “You shall divide it for an inheritance, each one equally with the other; for I swore to give it to your forefathers, and this land shall fall to you as an inheritance.
It should be apparent to those reading these verses that the return of Israel to the land promised their forefathers and passed to Israel, as an inheritance, is an event that will take place in the future or a prophecy. The prophet Isaiah foretells that only a remnant of Israel will be saved. Isaiah chapter 10.
The prophet Jeremiah also foretells that the remnant of Israel will be left after judgment is brought to earth because of the sins of mankind. The Israelites will be placed on the land promised to their forefathers, after they have been gathered from all the lands to which they have been banished by Yahweh. Jeremiah chapter 23.
The prophet Ezekiel describes how the land promised the fore fathers of Israel will be apportioned among Israel after Yahweh has brought devastating judgment to Earth. There can be no mistaking this future occurrence with the historical occurrence of Israel possessing the land of Canaan after they were freed from bondage in Egypt. Ezekiel chapter 45.
There was a prophecy much earlier in the history of Israel given by Moses when leading the Israelites to the land of Canaan after he led them out of Egypt. This prophecy was fulfilled when the Israelites forsook the laws of Yahweh and followed the ways of the world around them, just as many people do today.
In Genesis chapter 28 Moses called the Israelites together at Gerizim and gave them a prophecy of blessings and curses that would result if they obeyed or disobeyed the laws and statutes, Yahweh had given them.
Blessings at Gerizim
28 ” Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the Lord your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 “All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the Lord your God:
15 ” But it shall come about, if you do not obey the Lord your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes with which I charge you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you:
“Moreover, the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known.
The history of Israel, revealed in scriptures, relates that Israel did not obey the commands and statutes of Yahweh and they were indeed conquered, a curse promised to them by Yahweh, Deut. Chapter 28. First, the Assyrians in 722 BCE conquered the ten northern tribes with its citizens being carried off their land, never to be recognized as a nation or kingdom, even until today. The Ten Northern Tribes were not destroyed from the face of the Earth; they are mentioned in the scriptures as the lost sheep
of the House of Israel (Matthew chapters 10& 15).
The Jewish historian Josephus in his writings, known as the Antiquities of the Jews, describes the capture of the Ten Northern Tribes, he refers to as Hebrews and how they were carried into captivity beyond the Euphrates River. In chapter five section 2 page 234 Josephus writes that only two tribes lived in Asia and Europe subject to the rule of the Romans, while the ten tribes lived beyond the Euphrates in the time after the tribe of Judah returned to Jerusalem from captivity in Babylon. Josephus recorded that the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel were an immense multitude, not to be estimated by numbers.
Of interest is that the Caucasus Mountain range is located just north of the former territory of Assyria. Scholars in the 17th century designated a light skinned people from the Caucasus mountain region as Caucasians and believed that white Europeans originated in Caucasia, a region in southeastern Europe and southwestern Asia. (Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia article Caucasian).
Since Yahweh foretold the Israelites, he would scatter them throughout many nations if they disobeyed his laws it should be understandable that the ten northern tribes of Israel were carried North by the Assyrians beyond the Euphrates river where they did not come under the rule of the Romans. The Caucasus Mountains is an area that was just north of the rule of the Romans when their empire reached its zenith and Rome ruled over Cappadocia, an area just south of the Caucasus Mountains.
Light skinned Europeans moved from the area called Europe to habituate the Isle of Britain, Ireland, the Americas, Canada, New Zealand, Scandinavia and Australia where their descendants formed nations that based their laws on the Hebrew Scriptures and circumcised their sons.
Identifying Blessings from the scriptures.
Another scriptural identifier of the Ten Northern lost tribes of Israel comes from the book of Genesis chapter 24 verse 60. Abraham did not want his son Isaac to marry a woman descended from the Canaanites (Genesis 24:4). Abraham instructed his servant to go the land of his father to find a woman from his own lineage to become the wife to Isaac. The servant did as he was instructed and found a woman named Rebekah, who was willing to travel to Canaan to become Isaac’s wife, never having met Isaac.
As Rebekah was preparing to leave her family to meet her future husband Isaac, she was given, by her family, a blessing that helps identify her descendants the tribes of Israel.
And they blessed Rebekah and said to her,
“Our sister, may you increase
to thousands upon thousands;
may your offspring possess
the gates of their enemies.”
This blessing can identify those nations where Rebekah’s descendants would settle after being scattered from the land of Canaan because they did not follow Yahweh’s commands. It is no coincidence that the lands where the light skinned Europeans, Caucasians, have settled are the mightiest militarily of all the nations on the Earth. They have had mighty navies for centuries and today control the seaways with their military ships both on the sea and in the air. No country or consortium of countries on earth has the military power that can challenge the armies and navies of the countries where the light skinned Europeans have settled, but that will change because these nations do not obey the laws of Yahweh.
In scripture, Isaac’s descendants were to also receive the promise given to Abraham in that they would be numerous and would receive the lands promised by Yahweh to Abraham. Another blessing that identifies the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is found in Genesis Chapter 26. When a famine occurred in the land of Canaan Yahweh instructed Isaac not to enter Egypt, but to stay in Canaan and he would be blessed.
2 The Lord appeared to him and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; stay in the land of which I shall tell you. 3 “Sojourn in this land and I will be with you and bless you, for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will establish the oath which I swore to your father Abraham. 4 ” I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; 5 because Abraham obeyed Me and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes and My laws.
The peoples of the lands where the light skinned Europeans have settled have been a blessing to all the nations of the earth by the scientific and medical discoveries they have brought to the nations of the world. The nations of the light skinned Europeans have invented labor-saving devices, medicines and surgical procedures they have been introduced throughout the nations of the world to improve and extend the lives of peoples in all nations.
The descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob have been given land where they have multiplied and have become very numerous, they have become powerful nations that have provided blessings to themselves and the people of nations around the world because Yahweh made a promise to Abraham and because Abraham obeyed Yahweh and kept his commandments, his statutes, and his laws. Yahweh kept his promise even though the descendants of Abraham disobeyed Yahweh and broke his commandments and did not keep his laws and statutes.
Yahweh, through Moses, warned the Israelites that if they disobeyed his laws, they would be removed from the land of Canaan, where he delivered them from bondage from Egypt and scattered throughout the nations of the world where they would serve gods of wood and stone, materials items.
63 “It shall come about that as the Lord delighted over you to prosper you, and multiply you, so the Lord will delight over you to make you perish and destroy you; and you will be torn from the land where you are entering to possess it. 64 “Moreover, the Lord will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known.
Yahweh has kept his promise to Abraham by multiplying his descendants and making them a blessing to the nations of the world. He has also kept his promise of a curse to the Israelites to remove them from the land of Canaan and scatter them throughout the nations of the world and allow them to serve gods of wood and stone houses, jewelry and material possessions.
The Israelites have also been cursed by wars, pestilence, famine, and captivity in their history as Yahweh promised if they disobeyed his commandments, laws, and statutes.
The nations where the light skinned Europeans have settled have become the central bastion of a series of religious beliefs that have become known as Christianity. Christianity began its existence in Europe with the beginning of the Christian movement that became formalized during the rule of Constantine when he consolidated his power over religious leaders and thus over followers of these leaders. He used a religious council meeting named the Council of Nice to formalize his control over the beginning Christian movement in 325 CE.
The Council of Nice was called by Constantine to establish the ruling hierarchy of a fledgling religious movement among people of some of the European continent. The Council of Nice was an attempt by Constantine to bring religious leaders to agreement in their doctrines while establishing the leadership organizational power structural within the church and to consolidate the fragmented religious leaders and subject their church authority to the civil authority of Constantine.
The history of Christianity and how this school of religious dogma, doctrines, and beliefs became the prominent religion of the light skinned Europeans who have become known as Caucasians is significant and fulfills prophecies from biblical scriptures. There can be no denying that the nations populated by Caucasians have as their major religious beliefs a consortium of doctrines that fall under the title of Christianity.
While there are different beliefs and denominations falling under the heading Christianity the nations of Caucasians generally believe that their souls will be saved and dwell in Heaven if they accept the Son of the Creator, they call God, as their savior. Those who accept the Son of God whose name they believe is Jesus Christ are recognized as “Christians.”
These Christians, light skinned Europeans, Caucasians are also identifiable in the scriptures under another name, and their future is prophesied in the Bible books of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Isaiah.
7 For thus says the Lord,” Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob,
And shout among the chief of the nations; Proclaim, give praise and say,
‘O Lord, save Your people, The remnant of Israel.’
8 “Behold, I am bringing them from the north country,
And I will gather them from the remote parts of the earth,
Among them the blind and the lame,
The woman with child and she who is in labor with child, together;
A great company, they will return here.
9 ” With weeping they will come, And by supplication I will lead them;
I will make them walk by streams of waters,
On a straight path in which they will not stumble;
For I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is My firstborn.”
The reference to Ephraim as the firstborn of the Creator Yahweh appears to be inconsistent with other scriptures. Ephraim was not a child of Jacob and was not a son of Jacob but was his grandson the son of Joseph. Ephraim was not even the first born of Joseph but was the second born son to Joseph who was sold by his brothers into captivity and consequently traveled to Egypt where he became a high government official. (Genesis chapter 37)
The verses in Jeremiah give some poignant prophecies concerning the people of Israel. Notice, that Israel is to proclaim among the chief of nations for Yahweh to save the remnant of Israel. Yahweh states he will bring the remnant of Israel, from the North Country, and gather them from the remote parts of the earth. Yahweh also asserts that he is the father to Israel and Ephraim is his firstborn.
Since Ephraim cannot be Yahweh’s firstborn physically, as written in scripture, Yahweh must be speaking figuratively when he states Ephraim is his firstborn. The scriptures give more information that will allow those who study to understand.
In the book of Genesis, chapter 48, Jacob was close to death in Egypt when he declared that Joseph’s two sons would become Jacob’s sons. When Jacob had Joseph bring his two sons to his side to bless them, he placed his right hand on the head of Ephraim the younger of the two the sons of Joseph. The tradition of the patriarchal social order in the time of Jacob and previously held that the oldest son would receive the largest inheritance of property of the patriarch when the patriarch died.
Joseph informed his father Jacob that his right hand was on the head of Ephraim, the younger son and tried to change the positions of Jacobs’s hands. A significant event in prophecy for the future of the descendants took place at this point in the history of the twelve tribes of Israel. Jacob refused to change his hands so that Manassas, the eldest son, would not receive the blessing to be bestowed to Ephraim.
Jacob explained that while the descendants of Manassas would become a great people, the descendants of Ephraim would become a multitude of nations. Ephraim, the second born son of Joseph, is spoken of in scriptures as the figurative leader of the twelve tribes of Israel.
Ephraim, while not one of Jacob’s physical sons and his brother Manassas became inheritors of Jacob’s blessings and full rights to the inheritance promised by Yahweh to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob under what has become known by religious teachers and scholars, as the ‘Old Covenant.’
There are significant numbers of scriptures dealing with the history and future of Ephraim and the tribes euphemistically called the ‘lost ten tribes.’ The ten tribes of Israel separated from Judah, after the death of Solomon, were captured and carried away by Assyria and settled north of the Euphrates River, as stated by Jewish historian Josephus. These tribes lived north of the Euphrates River beyond the rule of the Roman Republic. The area north of the Rule of the Republic of Rome comprised of a mountain range that became known as the Caucasus Mountains. Anthropologists have concluded that light skinned Europeans who became known as Caucasians came from the region of the Caucasus Mountains.
Caucasians have not only settled on the continent of Europe but also have traveled to North and South America, Great Britain, Scotland, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Scandinavia and have become a multitude of nations that have in common laws based on the Hebrew scriptures, a high number of circumcised Caucasian males and a common religion called Christianity.
These nations collectively have promoted commerce throughout the world, invented labor-saving devices, developed medicines, surgical procedures which improve the quality of life through out the word and built strong armies that control the gates of the oceans and the heavens preserving forms of government that recognize and encourage freedom of individuals. The Caucasians have also gone to war on behalf of other nations saving the inhabitants of many nations from being conquered by repressive totalitarian rulers.
The descendants of the tribe of Ephraim were among the ten northern tribes whose identity has been lost to the world and as blessed by Jacob have become the figurative leader of the nations that have descended from the lost ten northern tribes of Israel.
It is significant to understand the relationship between the tribe of Judah and the tribes of Israel that fall under the title of Ephraim throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Members of the tribe of Judah have a long history of being persecuted and discriminated against by many nations.
In recent history, the Jews, a slang term that has become accepted as a name of the members of the tribe of Judah, were persecuted by the government of Germany beginning noticeably with the rise to power of Adolph Hitler in the 1930’s. Many Jews were taken to concentration camps where many were subsequently put to death.
The English-speaking nations, formed by light skinned Europeans, went to war against Hitler and his alliance of axis nations, largely Italy and Japan, to stop the advance of these nations to take control of much of the population in the world, including the English-speaking nations formed by Caucasians or light skinned Europeans. History has recorded that the chief of these nations, the United States, was the leader in war to stop the rise of imperialism by the axis nations of Germany, Italy and Japan and their intent to place the nations of the world under their rule.
When the troops of the United States (Manasseh) invaded Germany and the territories it had conquered, they found and released thousands of Jews being held in prison camps some perhaps destined for execution.
The tribe of Judah forms the tiny nation of Israel.
The formation of the modern state of Israel really begin in earnest in the 1890s with the establishment of the world Zionist Congress whose purpose was to work toward the establishment of a legalized country for Jews in the land area called Palestine which the Jews believed was land promised them through their ancestors in the Hebrew scriptures. Great Britain (Ephraim) who had defeated the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s and had taken control of the area called Palestine was given a mandate to control Palestine by the League of Nations after World War I. Jews, which had been slowly immigrating to the area of Palestine, increased immigration activities from 1914 when an estimated 85,000 Jews resided in Palestine to over 300,000 Jews by the end of the 1930s. The largest numbers of immigrants came from Poland, Russia, and Germany. (Microsoft Encarta Encyclopedia).
The Jewish residents of Palestine declared themselves a sovereign nation in 1948 when the British Mandate to govern the territory expired. The newly established nation comprised of both Jews and a minority of Arabs was an affront considered to be illegal by the Arab countries whose nations bordered the newly declared nation, which the Jews named Israel.
There have been numerous wars between the newly formed nation of Israel and its Arab neighbors. Israel (Judah) has received billions of dollars of financial and military aid from the United States since its inception. It is safe to conclude that without the copious amounts of support of the United States and to a lesser degree Great Britain the tiny nation called Israel would not have survived.
The world does not understand or recognize that scriptural prophecies are being fulfilled concerning the Twelve Tribes of Israel, are fulfilling prophecies of Yahweh. The tribe of Judah now planted in part of the land promised to the twelve tribes of Israel by Yahweh is fulfilling His promise to Abraham centuries ago.
The tiny nation of Israel and the members of the tribe of Judah that mostly habitated that nation could not exist without the protection of the chief of nations and its colleagues, those nations populated by light skinned Europeans, who like the Jews circumcise their sons and have their laws influenced by the laws given to the Israelites in the scriptures.
Yahweh’s plan for Ephraim and Judah
The scriptures prophesize the future of the tribes of Israel, that prophecy is rarely heard in sermons from present day writings, lectures or sermons from those recognized as leaders of Christian groups or even scholars. Today’s Christian leaders largely teach that there is spiritual life after death for those who accept the Messiah as their savior and that life will be in a place they call heaven.
Many Christians do not realize they are descendants of Israel, that their history and future is described in the scriptures as those scattered throughout the nations under the heading of Ephraim. The Scriptures reveal that all Israel disobeyed the statutes and commands of Yahweh and were scattered, as promised by Yahweh, into many nations. These Christians worship idols and blaspheme the name of Yahweh by calling on the name of a false god Baal (Lord in English) of course, Christians don’t realize that by calling the creator Yahweh by the false title Lord they are actuality calling on the name of Baal in Hebrew. See a detailed explanation of this deception in the YNCA article, “How the Creators name was changed).
Yahweh reveals in his scriptures what will happen to the tribes of Israel, because, of their sins, which include breaking the Sabbaths and profaning his Holy Name. In the book of Ezekiel chapter 20:39-44 it is revealed that Yahweh will return Israel to His high mountain where they will serve Him and no longer profane his name and serve idols. He tells Israel in verse 44 why he will keep his promise to their ancestors and restore them to the land where they will dwell; Yahweh will do this for his names sake.
The tribes of Israel have for centuries worshiped falsely, corrupting themselves with idols, braking the Sabbath and profaning the Holy Name of Yahweh by calling on the name of Baal which in English means master and in Hebrew Baal.
16 Again the word of the Lord came to me: 17 “Son of man, when the people of Israel were living in their own land, they defiled it by their conduct and their actions. Their conduct was like a woman’s monthly uncleanness in my sight. 18 So I poured out my wrath on them because they had shed blood in the land and because they had defiled it with their idols. 19 I dispersed them among the nations, and they were scattered through the countries; I judged them according to their conduct and their actions. 20 And wherever they went among the nations they profaned my holy name, for it was said of them, ‘These are Yahweh’s people, and yet they had to leave his land.’ 21 I had concern for my holy name, which the house of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.
22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake, O house of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of my holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone. 23 I will show the holiness of my great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Sovereign Lord, when I show myself holy through you before their eyes.
Yahweh tells Israel through the scriptures (which can be read in their English Bibles) that he is going to do great things for the Israelites even though they have broken his laws and commands. Why will Yahweh do great things for sinning Israel in the future? Yahweh will keep his Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob and place their descendants on the Promised Land because he has concern for his Holy Name and he wants the world to realize he will keep his covenant because his promises are good and he is holy. The physical descendants of Israel, both Judah, and Ephraim have broken Yahweh’s commands and laws and will still receive the physical land promised to their forefathers, but many of them will not receive the promises of the New Covenant of which Yahshua, the mediator.
24 “‘For I will take you out of the nations; I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. 25 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. 26 I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. 27 And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. 28 You will live in the land I gave your forefathers; you will be my people, and I will be your God. 29 I will save you from all your uncleanness. I will call for the grain and make it plentiful and will not bring famine upon you. 30 I will increase the fruit of the trees and the crops of the field, so that you will no longer suffer disgrace among the nations because of famine. 31 Then you will remember your evil ways and wicked deeds, and you will loathe yourselves for your sins and detestable practices. 32 I want you to know that I am not doing this for your sake, declares the Sovereign Lord. Be ashamed and disgraced for your conduct, O house of Israel!
Yahweh tells Israel, in scripture, he will gather them from all the countries and bring them back to the land promised to them through their forefathers. He will cleanse them with clean water, a symbol of his Holy Spirit, and teach them to keep his laws. He will save them from their uncleanness and bless them with plentiful crops. Israel will recognize their sins and detestable ways and will loathe themselves. However, this will not happen in an instant. The scriptures give details about what the world will experience before Israel will be returned to the Promised Land, and it’s not pleasant.
33 “‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: On the day, I cleanse you from all your sins, I will resettle your towns, and the ruins will be rebuilt. 34 The desolate land will be cultivated instead of lying desolate in the sight of all who pass through it. 35 They will say, “This land that was laid waste has become like the garden of Eden; the cities that were lying in ruins, desolate and destroyed, are now fortified and inhabited.” 36 Then the nations around you that remain will know that I the Lord have rebuilt what was destroyed and have replanted what was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’
Notice carefully that when Israel returns to the land promised through their forefathers as an inheritance the towns in that land will be in ruins, the land will have been made desolate. How does this occur? The scriptures explain what will happen to the world before Israel will be brought back to the Promised Land, which they will have to rebuild. The scriptures also explain how Israel will be taught the laws of Elohim and just how they will live their lives. This is a scriptural revelation given in great detail, about the future of the Israelites that is largely not understood.
Yahweh has told the world, in his scriptures, that he will punish not only Israel but the entire world when his Son Yahshua returns to earth to establish his Kingdom. That Kingdom will spread throughout the entire earth and will have its physical beginning in the land promised to the tribes of Israel through Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The scriptures give enough detail about the coming disaster that people should understand and repent from their sinful ways. Some people will repent and change their lives and these people will fall under the New Covenant and will not be part of the physical Kingdom that will begin with the twelve tribes of Israel.
6 When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble? When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?
7 Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.
The books of the prophets, in the scriptures, reveal the future of the world which most people will chose to ignore, including the descendants of Israel. The Israelites will be punished and will loathe themselves when they realize how they have disobeyed the laws of Yahweh which if followed would have been spared them the heart break of wars, sicknesses, corruption, and the evils of men’s ways.
8 Therefore wait for me,” declares the Lord, “for the day I will stand up to testify. I have decided to assemble the nation, to gather the kingdoms and to pour out my wrath on them — all my fierce anger, The whole world will be consumed by the fire of my jealous anger.
2 Peter 3:10
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.
Yahweh has declared, in his scriptures, that in the future the world will be destroyed by fire. He has given a time frame when he will bare the earth by fire and that time frame is when the fourth beast government is in existence, that time is now. You can learn more about the fourth beast government, its identity, and history in YNCA’s article “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”.
The scriptures also describe the man of sin and the part he plays in conjunction with the fourth beast government. The identity of the man of sin can be learned along with how the man of sin has led millions of people into deception through false religious teaching. The man of sin and related false religious teaching is so deceptive that Christians do not realize they have been marked with his mark, the mark of the beast, and will suffer because they have been deceived. It will come as huge surprise when many Christians learn they are part of the lost tribes of Israel and have been following a path to self-destruction declared boldly by Yahweh, in his scriptures. Read YNCAs article (The Mark of the Beast)
2 So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
In the book of Revelation Yahweh reveals, through symbols, the future of much of the world’s population. In chapter 16 people who have the mark of the beast, of the fourth world government, now in existence, will have sores that are loathsome and malignant, However, this is a figurative statement that refers to how these people are viewed by Yahweh. The malignant sore that is loathsome to Elohim is the mark of the beast that exists on disobedient people. The mark of the beast is not a physical mark, but an act people perform because they have been deceived by the false prophet, the man of sin, into breaking Elohim’s’ laws particularly the Sabbath.
You can learn more about this in YNCA’S article “THE MARK OF THE BEAST’. The man of sin also was and is instrumental in deceiving millions of people into profaning the names of the heavenly father and his son. He has been so successful in this deception that his religious followers have physically killed true worshippers of Elohim in the false name of Baal, which is Lord in English, and not a name, but merely a title in English. The false prophets have been successful in deceiving the entire world.
9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
This verse is largely ignored by Christians because they believe they have knowledge of the scriptures and will be saved because they have faith in the Messiah, whose name they profane, as their savior. They should, however, take notice of a verse very close in the scriptures, that if heeded, would lead them to the knowledge they are incorrect in their false beliefs.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
Revelation chapter 12 has many symbols that reveal to a serious student just how Christians and the world are deceived. The last sentence in verse 17 explains that the dragon, symbolizing Satan, went off to make war with the rest of the children of the woman who gave birth to a special male child and was protected by Elohim. These children are identified as people who keep the
commandments of Elohim and the testimony of Yahshua.
Satan has been so successful in deceiving the world even the scriptures in the English Bible profane the name of the Father and Son. One of the commandments of Elohim is not to blaspheme or profane or make useless the Holy Name of Yahweh. Much more about the deception of Satan, the false prophets and men can be learned YNCA’S article titled “HOW THE NAME OF THE CREATOR WAS CHANGED AND WHY YOU SHOULD CARE.”
When the day of Yahweh comes, the earth will be burned; many physical changes will take place, which will be cataclysmic in nature. The entire surface of the earth will be changed.
12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;
The Apostle John was given the above verse in a vision by the son of man and recorded it in the book of revelation. Other prophets also were given the same prophecy, and Isaiah recorded the same message, which can be read the modern English Bible:
9 Men will flee to caves in the rocks and to holes in the ground from dread of the Lord and the splendor of his majesty, when he rises to shake the earth
34 Come near, nations, and listen; pay attention, you peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, the world, and all that comes out of it!
2 The Lord is angry with all nations; his wrath is upon all their armies.
He will totally destroy them he will give them over to slaughter.
3 Their slain will be thrown out; their dead bodies will send up a stench;
the mountains will be soaked with their blood. 4 All the stars of the heavens will be dissolved and the sky rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall
like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
Many who consider themselves “saved” and have been taught they will be “raptured” when the Messiah returns will be surprised to learn they will be caught in the extreme turmoil and catastrophic loss of millions of lives prophesied to occur when the “Day of Yahweh” arrives. Many who break the commandments of Elohim will not escape punishment from Yahweh when his day takes place. For more on The Rapture read YNCA’s article “The Rapture”.
4 Near is the great day of the Lord, near and coming very quickly;
Listen, the day of the Lord! In it the warrior cries out bitterly.
15 A day of wrath is that day, a day of trouble and distress,
A day of destruction and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom,
A day of clouds and thick darkness, 16 A day of trumpet and battle cry
against the fortified cities and the high corner towers.
17 I will bring distress on men so that they will walk like the blind,
because they have sinned against the Lord; and their blood will be poured out like dust and their flesh like dung.
For a comprehensive explanation of why people who think they are saved will be destroyed read YNCA’S article “THE S WORD”.
Yahweh has many scriptures through which he proclaims the fate of sinners when His kingdom is established on earth. The Messiah will slay the nations with the sword that comes from his mouth, symbolically the scriptures, when he returns to earth to establish his kingdom.
From His mouth comes a sharp sword, so that with it He may strike down the nations, and He will rule them with a rod of iron; and He treads the wine press of the fierce wrath of God, the Almighty. 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, ” KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
And the rest were killed with the sword, which came from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh.
In the prophetic words of the prophet Zephaniah recorded in chapter 1 verse 17 Yahweh will bring distress on men because they have sinned, broken his laws and commandments, and men’s blood will be poured out like dust and their flesh will be like dung. This will happen to the majority of the billions of people who live on earth because they do not obey Yahweh and keep his commandments and follow the example set by the Messiah.
Big changes coming.
The earth will be drastically changed when the “Day of Yahweh” takes place.
The commercial trade between nations will cease because there will be no transportation left to carry goods. Ships will be destroyed; Air planes will not have any guidance systems to direct them or airports to depart or arrive. Trucks will have no passable highways over which to deliver goods even if the goods were able to be manufactured. Buildings, which once manufactured building materials, clothing and other goods, will no longer exist and there will be no electrical power to run machines to manufacture goods. Hospitals will be leveled and emergency rooms will be dark, there will be no medical help for those injured even if they could get to the hospital.
No one will be able to go the bank and get money to buy goods even if they existed, everyone will be left without houses, food, clothing and other essentials for survival; millions will die. The system of trade that takes place among nations today will cease to exist along with the governments of the world. No armies or police forces will be able to protect citizens of nations because they will be devastated along with the nations that paid them for protection.
8 In the whole land,” declares the Lord, “two-thirds will be struck down and perish; yet one-third will be left in it.
Yahweh tells us that two-thirds of the world’s population will be destroyed. That means if he were to bring destruction to earth that has an estimated population of eight billion over five billion people would die. Just try to imagine how those that survive the devastation would have to change their lives and how they would have to deal with the widespread death and destruction of the world as previously known. The scriptures predict that birds will eat the flesh of those who died because the dead bodies will be too numerous for the remnant left to bury them on a timely schedule.
The scriptures state there will be war on his day and the war will begin in the Middle East at Jerusalem.
A day of the Lord is coming when your plunder will be divided among you.
2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.
3 Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. 5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
6 On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost. 7 It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime — a day known to the Lord. When evening comes, there will be light.
There can be little question that Zechariah chapter 14 verses 1-6 are yet to come, there has never been an occasion that has occurred as is described in these verses. Jerusalem will be attacked by the nations around it. The city will be captured and ransacked by the troops and after that occurs Yahshua will return with his holy ones. The question of the identity of the holy ones is a question that is also answered in the scriptures.
While the battle begins in Jerusalem it spreads throughout the entire earth with the result being widespread devastation and the death of billons of people. The scriptures reveal a third of the world’s population will somehow be left alive after this war, but the world will be very different.
It is apparent that many men die in this confrontation, even men of the twelve tribes of Israel who will begin to understand Yahweh has saved them from total destruction. The remnant of the twelve tribes of Israel will be drawn to return to the Promised Land as they begin to understand their heritage.
Isa 4 1 For seven women will take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach!”
2 In that day the Branch of the Lord will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel. 3 It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy — everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem. 4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning, 5 then the Lord will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy. 6 There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and protection from the storm and the rain.
The book of the writings of the prophet Isaiah revels much about the world after the day of Yahweh. In chapter 4 verse 1 seven women will try to attach themselves to a man pledging they will support themselves if only the man will take them to be called by his name, apparently in Marriage, because there are few eligible men left after the devastation of the world by war.
In verse 2 Isaiah reveals that the fruit of the earth will be the survivors of Israel. Yahweh will wash away the filth, symbolizing sins, of the daughters of Zion and purged bloodshed of Jerusalem by his spirit of judgment he will create a cloud by day and a flaming fire by night and overall will be a canopy that will protect Israel from heat and storm. This canopy will be covered other YNCA articles and will be a very significant creation by Elohim.
Humankind should read the scriptures, take notice of historical events, begin to comprehend the logical structure of physical laws and begin to realize the greatness of size and magnitude of the universe to realize the greatness of superior powerful intelligence. The beings that have this intelligence and power are loving, caring and want to have a large family of loving beings that will treat one another with care and respect. They want beings that will live happily and peacefully forever. They have made it possible for humans to enjoy the gifts of their creation and eternal life, but only those humans willing to live in peace and to help others. People can decide for themselves their future, hopefully most will decide wisely.
15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:
“The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”
16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying:
“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,
the One who is and who was,
because you have taken your great power
and have begun to reign.
18 The nations were angry;
and your wrath has come.
The time has come for judging the dead,
and for rewarding your servants the prophets
and your saints and those who reverence your name,
both small and great —
and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”
Will you be rewarded or?
