Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

The Jews are not the “House of Israel”!

Addendum #3 for The Time After Jacob’s Trouble

The Great Judgment Day

Addendum Preview: One of the commonest mistakes that people make is thinking that the Jews are all there is to Israel. Actually a significant number of Levites are still recognized as Israelites and another significant number of Benjamites have retained their national identity. Members of these other two tribes are often referred to as “Jews” because they often practice Judaism. But Abraham had twelve sons and just because most of ten tribes got “lost” after the fall of the northern kingdom of Israel, does not mean that Elohim (God) has lost track of them. Furthermore, a great deal of prophecy involves these tribes that seemingly vanished from the face of the earth. Run away from any Bible “teacher” who does not understand which nation the entire Bible is focused on!

Here is but one of many examples of prophecy about the twelve tribes:

Genesis 49:1 Jacob called for his sons and said, “Gather around so that I can tell you what you [your descendants] will encounter at the end of days.

This prophecy from Genesis goes on to describe the fates of all of the tribes of Israel “in the last days”.

From Genesis to Revelation—all prophecy concerns the twelve tribes. They are all accounted for at the end of the age:

Lion of Judah

Revelation 7:1-5 After all of this I saw four messengers standing on the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth, so that no wind could blow on the land or the sea or on the trees. 2 Then I saw another messenger coming up from the direction of the rising sun. He had the seal of the living Aloha, and he called out loudly to the four messengers who were allowed to harm the land the sea, 3 He said, “Don’t harm the land or the sea or the trees until we have sealed the foreheads of the servants of Yehovah.” [1] 4 Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000, sealed from every tribe of Israel:

5 12,000 from the tribe of Judah were sealed, 12,000 from the tribe of Reuben, 12,000 from the tribe of Gad, 6 12,000 from the tribe of Asher, 12,000 from the tribe of Naphtali, 12,000 from the tribe of Manasseh, 7 12,000 from the tribe of Simeon, 12,000 from the tribe of Levi, 12,000 from the tribe of Issachar, 8 12,000 from the tribe of Zebulun, 12,000 from the tribe of Joseph, and 12,000 from the tribe of Benjamin were sealed.—The Gabriel Bible

The following verses illustrate without any ambiguity or commentary the uniqueness of the twelve tribes within the nation of Israel.

2 Samuel 12:8 I gave you your master’s house, and put your master’s wives into your arms, and I gave you the House of Israel and Judah, and if that had not been enough, I would have given you much more than that.

1 Kings 12:21 When Rehoboam returned to Jerusalem he 'mobilized' the entire House of Judah and the tribe of Benjamin, 180,000 elite soldiers to fight against the House of Israel and restore the kingdom to Solomon’s son Rehoboam.

Isaiah 5:7 The vineyard of Commander Yehovah is the House of Israel and the people of Judah are His delightful garden. He looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.

Jeremiah 3:18 In those days the House of Judah will live with the House of Israel. You’ll return together from the Land of the North, to the land that I gave to your ancestors as an inheritance. [This is a rarely noted critical prerequisite factor!]

Jeremiah 5:11 The House of Israel and the House of Judah have been utterly unfaithful to Me”, says Yehovah.

Jeremiah 11:10 They have returned to the sins of their ancestors who refused to hear My words, and have pursued other gods to serve them. The House of Israel and the House of Judah have broken the covenant that I made with their ancestors.

Jeremiah 11:17 For Commander Yehovah, who planted you, has decreed disaster against you, because of the evil that the House of Israel and of the House of Judah have done. They’ve provoked Me to anger by offering incense to Baal.

Jeremiah 13:11 Yehovah says, “I have caused the House of Israel and the entire the House of Judah to cling to Me like a belt clings to a man’s waist, in order for them to be My people, and for renown, praise and splendor, but they wouldn’t listen.”

Jeremiah 31:27 In days to come,” Yehovah says, “I’ll repopulate [sow] the House of Israel [the “Lost” 10 Tribes] AND the House of Judah with people and animals.

Jeremiah 31:31 Yehovah says: “The time is coming [1], when I’ll make a New [marriage] Covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

[1] Jeremiah 30 and 31 are one long prophetic monologue about the events to occur at the time of the Second Exodus (Jeremiah 23:7-8), when all 12 tribes of Israel return to the land (not just the Jews!) AND The Time of Jacob’s trouble (Jeremiah 30:7)—better known as the Great Tribulation (Matthew 24:1-22). Not one verse of this 2 chapter prophecy has been fulfilled, including the Torah being written on anyone’s hearts. Why single verse 33 out of all this futuristic context?

Jeremiah 33:14 The time is coming,” Yehovah says, “when I’ll fulfill the wonderful things that I promised to the House of Israel and the House of Judah.

Ezekiel 37:11 Then he said, “Human son, these bones 'represent' the entire House of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones have dried up and our hope is lost, we’ve been completely 'exterminated'.’

Ezekiel 37:16 Human son, take a stick and write on it: ‘Praise Judah and his Israelite companions.’ Then take another stick, (the stick representing Ephraim) and write on it: ‘Joseph increases, as well as the House of Israel, his companions.’

Hosea 11:12 Ephraim surrounds Me with lies, the House of Israel with deceit. But Judah is still wandering away from Elohim [Gills], and stands against the 'special' Ones. [Yes, it’s plural!]

Zechariah 8:13 Just as you were a curse among the nations, House of Judah and House of Israel once I save you, you’ll be a blessing. Don’t be afraid. May your hands be strengthened.

Hebrews 8:8 Finding fault with THEM He said, “The time is coming, says Yehovah, when I’ll enact a New marriage Covenant with the House of Israel and with the House of Judah.
