No Last Tribes of Israel

Abigail and Dolley readers at some point in the future, all of the Jews will return to Israel; the Lord Himself will gather them back after the mighty miracle of Ezekiel 38/39.  They call it Aliyah and the Jerusalem Post has a special section completely dedicated to it.

This begun in the 1880's and continues today in accordance with Isaiah 11:11-12. And in that day the Lord shall again lift up His hand a second time to recover (acquire and deliver) the remnant of His people which is left, from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Pathros, from Ethiopia, from Elam [in Persia], from Shinar [Babylonia], from Hamath [in Upper Syria], and from the countries bordering on the [Mediterranean] Sea.  And He will raise up a signal for the nations and will assemble the outcasts of Israel and will gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Note that the Scripture says that He will regather them a second time, the first being after their 70 year captivity in Babylon.  Many will say, "Yes, but the Northern Kingdom was lost 200 years before so the first regathering was of the Southern Kingdom."  Is this an accurate statement?  Are there really Lost Tribes of Israel?

DNA Does Not Lie:
In the last 15 years, the scientific advances in DNA testing and gene mapping have produced startling findings among scattered populations.  Some tests seems to suggest that an ancient line of Aaron has been found in India and testing of rabbis worldwide seem to all have the same unique genetic markers. An aggressive form of breast cancer has revealed hidden Jews in New Mexico who fled the Catholic Church's Spanish Inquisition.


The last of the Jews have left Ethiopia and returned to Israel.  Driven by war and a rise in Antisemitism, Ukrainian Jews are returning to Israel.  Cases of violence against Jews and Antisemitic clashes rose 40% in 2014.  The streets of Paris are no longer safe for Jews.  The Israeli Parliament has allocated millions to assist refugees with relocation costs.

No Lost Tribes:
The original split between the Northern Kingdom who followed Jeroboam and the Southern Kingdom ruled by Rehoboam.  Read the following:   2 Chronicles 11-13 And the priests and the Levites who were in all Israel came over to Rehoboam from wherever they lived. 14 For the Levites left their suburbs and their possessions and came to Judah and Jerusalem, for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them out from executing the priest’s office to the Lord.  15 And he appointed his own priests for the high places and for the [idols of demon] he-goats, and calves he had made.  16 And after them out of all the tribes of Israel there came to Jerusalem those who set their hearts to seek and inquire of the Lord, the God of Israel, to sacrifice to the Lord, the God of their fathers.  17 So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah and upheld Rehoboam son of Solomon for three years; for they walked in the ways of David and Solomon for three years.

In 2 Chronicles 34:9 and 2 Chronicles 35:17 we see that as Josiah is repairing the temple and reinstating Passover that all of the tribes contributed as they had fled the Assyrians and migrated to Judah.

There are numerous references in the New Testament to Israel as a whole, we can extrapolate from this that the Northern Tribes were NOT lost in the first century.  (James 1:1, Acts 26:6-7)  Jesus did not seem to be confused over where the nation of Israel resided...

Thus, in fulfillment of Ezekiel 37, the Nation of Israel has been regathered, as a largely secular nation they await the breath of the Spirit that will make them alive again  (Ezekiel 37:11).  The time is coming soon, where the Lord of Hosts will once again engage with his people Israel.
