What is the true Bible meaning of 'Salvation'?

A most spectacular and stupendous Event of all time, is fast taking shape across the world - God is fulfilling His Prophetic Desire to rescue the remnant of the scattered exiles of all 12 the ancient Tribes of Israel, from the four corners of the earth, and resettling them in Israel,  the Land of their forefathers to whom He had covenanted it by Divine Oath.  This entails not only the regathering of the Jews (remnants of the ancient Tribe of Judah), but more spectacularly also,  the re-identifying of the hitherto 'Lost Ten Tribes' of aancient Israel, intermingled with the nations since their exile from Israel nearly 3000 years ago.  The uproar that this repatriation and Biblically prophesied 'Return to Zion' is causing in the international arena of nations, is clearly evident in the troubling Times that the world has entered into - a world faced by international terror of draconic proportions;  a broiling Middle East, constantly threatening to unleash a Doomsday Armageddon holocaust on a tottering world - problems for which the root cause is constantly blamed on Zion (the Mount of Jerusalem) and 'the Jews'. 

It is in the actual fulfilment of this Return and Reconciliation of the hitherto estranged 12 Tribes of Israel, that the True Messiah identifies Himself as 'the Shepherd of Israel' and the Supreme Deity of all the nations of the world. 

Who is this Good Shepherd? 

Who will all have entry into His World Dominion?  Do you also have a chance?

 

 

Messiah identifies Himself

by the True Biblical Concept of 'Salvation'

 

Jeremiah 23:7  “See then, the days are coming - it is YHVH Who speaks - when people will no longer say: ‘As YHVH lives Who brought the sons of Israel out of the Land of Egypt!’  but, ‘As YHVH lives Who led back and brought home the descendants of the House of Israel out of the Land of the North and from all the countries to which He had dispersed them, to live on their own soil.’”

The Covenant which God concluded with the nation of Israel, was linked to a Divine Promise of Miracles and Wonders to befall Israel "as have never been in any land or in any nation." (Exodus 34:10). This nation's 4000 year history is filled with such Miracles.  (The following 2 links provide summarised details of some highlights only, of a long list of national Miracles for Israel - you should return to these after considering the contents of this present study.  The links are:
The Miracle of invincible Israel  and
Covenant of Miracles

In Jewish tradition, the Event of the Exodus from Egypt is regarded as the greatest Event in Jewish history. Our theme Scripture above, promises a future Event which will far supercede the miraculous Exodus.  It is this Event which is the topic of our study here.  It is in this way that the True Messiah will identify Himself as 'the Shepherd of Israel' and the Supreme Deity of all the nations of the world.

Probably the one most fundamental concept proclaimed by the Bible, is that of 'Salvation' or 'Redemption' - but it has also become a most destorted concept by now.  Some believers understand this as "being 'saved' from this 'evil' world into a 'heavenly' Kingdom to live eternally amongst heavenly angelic beings".  By far the majority of Scriptures though, speak of an 'earthly' Kingdom, operating under the direct Rule of God over all the world, from Jerusalem in the Middle East - currently the hot spot of what seems to be an insolvable dispute between the Returning Jews, who are accused by the Palestinians (with the backing of all Arab lands and Islam) as "illegal occupiers of the Palestinian Homeland".

Christianity proclaims the Messiah, Jesus, as the Saviour of repenting souls, into the heavenly Kingdom.  Scripture, again, present overwhelming confirmation which refer rather to "the Salvation (Rescue) or Regathering of the exiled 12 Tribes of Israel from the four corners of the earth, to the Land of their forefathers."  The Bible is also clear that multitudes of  'others' (from every nation, race or tribe) are included in this Plan of Salvation for Israel, merely on acceptance and compliance with the Divine Requirements (as for Israel itself).

It is according to the Biblical precepts for Salvation ('rescue from the world out there' or 'Redemption and Return from Exile') into God's True Kingdom, more than any other,  that the True Messiah will be identified.  It is the purpose of this study, to review from the Tanach ('Old' Testament) as well as from the Brit HaChadasha ('New' Testament) and other Jewish literature, the True Identifying concepts of the True Messiah and His Kingdom.  We will also show how current trends of advance in Scriptural Knowledge amongst millions of serious Bible students across the world, is gradually unfolding this miraculous 'Grand Finale' of fulfillment of Prophecy right, before our eyes!

 

 

Scriptures Dealing With The Gathering Of The Tribes

There would have been no requirement for a 'universal re-gathering' of the exiled Twelve Tribes of Israel, without a preceding exilic 'scattering' of them in the first place.  Both these events have been prescribed in advance, as Divine Retribution and ultimate Reconciliation of the ancient nation of Israel, according to their state of compliance with the declared Will of the creator God of Israel.  (If you are not acquainted with the historical facts of Israel's Exile since the 8th century BCE, you can find a short summary by clicking here).

The Scriptures following below, have been selected from a great variety in the Tanach (O.T.) which confirm God's repeated Promises to 'save' Israel from this Exile and to return them to the Land of Israel.  For purposes of this discussion, and to properly identify the True Saviour,  readers should consider carefully from this Scriptural evidence:

  • Who exactly it is, that lays claim to being the Saviour of Israel;

  • what this 'salvation' will entail, and

  • what the Divine requirements are.

A concise summary of the reasons for the Divine election of the nation of Israel;  their rejection and their ultimate reconciliation is found in the Book of Leviticus which lists the Divine Laws underlying the Covenant which YHVH presented to Israel.  The time setting of this Scripture is some 3250 years ago, when Israel was still unified as 12 Tribes, according to the descendants of the 12 sons of Jacob,  during their Exodus from Egypt in their Wilderness experience, on their way to the Promised Land of Israel.

Leviticus 26:14 (following on the announcement of the conditions for Divine Blessings) "But if you do not listen to Me  ... if you refuse My Laws and disregard My Customs and break My Covenant by not observing each one of My Commandments, then I will deal in like manner with you (then follows a list of Curses to befall the nation:  terror, defeat by enemies,  famine, disease, etc.) verse 32  "I, yes I (YHVH) will make such a desolation of the Land that your enemies who come to live there, will be appalled by it.  And I will scatter you amongst the nations (all 12 Tribes); I will unsheathe the Sword against you ... verse 44  Yet this is not the End.  When they are in the land of their enemies, I will not so abhor them as to destroy them altogether and break My Covenant with them, for I am YHVH their God.  For their sake, I will remember the Covenant I made with those first generations that I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I would be their God, I YHVH."

Deuteronomy 30: 3-4 "If you return to YHVH your God, if you obey His Voice with all your heart and soul in everything I enjoin on you today, you and your children, then YHVH your God will bring back your captives, He will have pity on you and gather you once again out of all the nations where YHVH your God has scattered you.  Had you wandered to the ends of the heavens, YHVH your God will gather you even from there,  He would come there to reclaim you and bring you back to the Land your fathers possessed, so that you in your turn can make it your own, prospering there and increasing even more than your fathers." (also Nehemiah 1:7-9)

Note:

  • How the return of the exiles is linked to their return to Him in faithfulness and obedience to His Law (which are merely the terms of His Covenant, refer The Old and Renewed Covenant.

  • Their 'return' is linked also with a return to the Land of their fathers.

  • He Himself, YHVH God, would fetch them from wherever they might be in the world.

Isaiah 11:11  "YHVH will hoist a Signal for the nations and assemble the outcasts of Israel;  He will bring back the scattered people of Judah from the four corners of the earth."

Note:

  • That this Ingathering will serve as a Divine Sign to the nations.

  • This ingathering affects both 'Israel and Judah'.

Isaiah 43:5  "I (YHVH) will bring your offspring from the East, and gather you from the West.  To the North I will say; 'Give them up!',  and to the South, 'Do not hold them!'.  Bring back My sons from far away, My daughters from the end of the earth - all those who bear My Name (also through Baptism), whom I have created for My Glory, whom I have formed, whom I have made.  Bring forward the people that is blind (for the Truth), yet has eyes, that is deaf and yet has ears.  Let all the nations muster and assemble with every race.  Which of them ever declared this or foretold this in the past?  Let them bring their witnesses ... so that they may say, 'It is true'.  You yourselves are My witnesses - it is YHVH Who speaks - My servants whom I have chosen, that men may know and believe Me and understand that it is I.  No god was formed before Me nor will be after Me.   I, I am YHVH - there is no other Savior but Me ... it is YHVH Who speaks - and I, I am your God.  I am He from Eternity."

Note:

  • How the Ingathering brings His elect to the realization of Who He really is - the Only God and Savior. Refer Several studies on the Oneness of God

  • This realization of His Oneness, will draw them back to the Original Hebraic Faith.

Jeremiah 29:14  "... I will bring you back to the place from which I exiled you."

Jeremiah 32:37 - 44  "I mean to gather them from all the countries where I have driven them in My Anger ... I will bring them back to this place ... I will make an everlasting Covenant with them ... and I will plant them firmly is this Land with all My Heart and Soul ... for as I have brought this great disaster on this people, so I am going to bring them all the good I have promised them.  People will buy fields in this Land of which you say. 'It is a wasteland ... given over into the power of the Chaldeans.  People will buy fields, pay money, draw up deeds and seal them, and witness them in the Land of Benjamin in the districts around Jerusalem, in the towns of Judah - for I am going to restore their fortunes."

Note:

  • How pertinently settling of the Land of Israel (Jerusalem and Judea) is part of the Return of exiled Israel.  How YHVH is in control of the re-settling.

  • Bear in mind that this Ingathering refers not only to the Tribe of Judah (the Jews) but to all 12 Tribes of Israel, 10 of which historically went 'lost', from seven  centuries BCE to date.

Ezekiel 11:17  "The Lord YHVH says this: 'I will gather you together from the nations; I will bring you all back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you the Land of Israel ... I will give them a single heart, and I will put a new Spirit in them.  I will remove the heart of stone from their bodies, and give them a heart of flesh in stead, so that they will keep My Laws and respect My Observances and put them into practice. Then they shall be My People and I will be their God."

Note how that observance of His Laws is linked to the Return from exile and being sealed again into the Renewed Covenant.  This is confirmed even clearer in:

Ezekiel 36:24,27  "Then I am going to gather you together from all the foreign countries and bring you home to your own Land ... I shall put My Spirit in you and make you keep My Laws and sincerely respect My Observances ... and the nations around you will know that I, YHVH, have rebuilt what was destroyed ... I, YHVH, have spoken and I will do it".

Note:

  • How the Divinely purposed re-gathering of the Tribes of Israel is repeatedly and specifically linked to the physical settling of the Land;

  • The repeated re-emphasis of the terms of the Covenant i.e. Law observance as a necessary condition;

  • This is all to serve as a witness to the surrounding nations of the faithfulness of God to His Covenental Promises

Micah 2:12  "I am going to gather all Jacob together.  I will gather the remnant of Israel."

Note that this Ingathering refers to all 12 Tribes of Israel, not just Judah (the Jews), as confirmed in:

Zecheriah 10:6-10  "And I will make the House of Judah mighty, and the House of Joseph victorious.  I am going to restore them, for I have taken pity on them, and they shall be as if I had never cast them off.  Ephraim will be like a hero ...I shall lead them into the Land of Gilead (Jordan) and Lebanon and even that will not be large enough for them."

Isaiah 49:14  "For Zion (God's Holy Mount in Jerusalem) was saying, 'YHVH has abandoned me, the Lord has forgotten me,'  Does a woman forget a baby at the breast or fail to cherish the son of her womb?  Yet, even if these forget, I will never forget you (Zion) ... (verse 18) Look round about you, all are assembling (the Returnees), coming to you, and your devastated country will now be too small for all your inhabitants ... (verse 22) Thus speaks the Lord YHVH: 'I beckon to the nations and hoist My Signal for the nations (His Sign to the nations of the Ingathering).  They will bring back your sons ... and daughters (verse 25) I Myself will save your (Zion's, the Land's) children ... Then all mankind shall know that I, YHVH, am your Saviour, and that your Redeemer is the Mighty One of Jacob."

Note:

  • How 'Salvation' is related to the Return to the Land, according to the terms of the Covenant.  Refer also: The Authentic Gospel of the Kingdom

  • How this Ingathering will exalt YHVH and make Him known to mankind as the Saviour and Redeemer of Israel.

  • How living space in the Land will be a problem - as confirmed by the current struggle for land in Israel.  The total land area of Israel currently is less than the size of a province in many other countries.

Jeremiah 31:35-37 "YHVH Who provides the sun for light by day, the moon and stars by night ... says this: 'Were this established Order ever to pass away from My Presence, only then would the race of Israel also cease to be a nation in My Presence for ever.  Were the heavens above ever to be measured,  only then would I reject the race of Israel for all that they have done."

Zechariah 8:3-8  "YHVH Sabaoth says this: I am coming back to Zion and shall dwell in the middle of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be called Faithful City and the mountain of YHVH Sabaoth, the Holy Mountain ... Now I am going to save My people from the countries of the East and from the countries of the West.  I will bring them back to live inside Jerusalem. They shall be My people and I will be their God in faithfulness and integrity"

Note the great emphasis on the Divine Purpose to establish His People in the Land of Israel. We will now consider a more in-depth review of certain Scriptures on our topic of the Ingathering of Israel as an identification factor for the True Messiah.

 

 

"The passing under the Shepherd's Rod"

 

Ezekiel 20:32-34  "And that dream ever haunting your mind, when you say, 'We shall be like the other nations, like foreign tribes,  As I live - I swear it, it is the Lord YHVH Who speaks - I am the One Who will reign over you. With a strong Hand and outstretched Arm ... I will bring you out from the nations and gather you together from foreign countries amongst which you have been scattered ... I mean to make you pass under My Rod and I will bring a few of you back.  I will sort out the rebels who have rebelled against Me"

Note:

  • Israel craved for assimilating with and identifying with the 'other' nations - but YHVH 'jealously' insists that they belong to Him (as one would insist of a Bride who belongs to you!)

  • The "passing under the rod" is referred to in Leviticus 27:32 concerning the tithe of the Flock, as the shepherd counts the sheep passing under his rod,  to tap every tenth sheep on the head as the tithe unto YHVH. Then the shepherd would gather them together and take them to the Temple in Jerusalem.  A further cross-reference to this Scripture is Jer. 33:7 (speaking of Israel coming back into the Land and to Jerusalem). "I will restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem ... (verse 11) and this Land, as they were before. YHVH declares it! ... (verse 9) And Jerusalem shall be My theme of Joy, My Honour and My Boast before all the nations of the earth! ... (verse 13) In all the towns of the highlands, of the lowlands, of the Negev, in the Land of Benjamin, in the districts round Jerusalem and in the towns of Judah, once again the flocks shall pass under the Hand of Him Who counts them - YHVH declares it!"

  • YHVH does the counting; He is the Shepherd Who gathers His exiled Flock back to His favored Land and City.

  • As in Tithing of the flock, every tenth one is selected, nine go forth on their way. This confirms the Scriptural directive: "Narrow is the Gate - and many will not find it."

  • A new parameter for defining the True Messiah is introduced here:  The One Who counts His flock - The Good Shepherd.

  • Who is the True Shepherd?

Isaiah 40:9b-1  "Shout without fear, say to the towns of Judah: 'Here is your God - Here is the Lord YHVH, coming with Power!'.  His Arm subduing all things to Him ... He is like a Shepherd, feeding His Flock, gathering lambs in His Arms, holding them against His Breast and gently leading those who are with young"

Ezekiel 34:11-13  " For the Lord YHVH says this, 'I am going to look after My Flock Myself ... As a Shepherd keeps all his flock in view when he stands up in the middle of his scattered sheep,  so shall I keep My sheep in view.  I shall rescue them from wherever they have been scattered ... I shall bring them out of the countries where they are; I shall gather them together from foreign countries and bring them back to their own Land.  I shall pasture them on the mountains of Israel ... in every inhabited place in the Land.  I shall feed them in good pasturage ... I Myself will pasture My sheep.  I Myself will show them where to rest - it is the Lord YHVH Who speaks - I shall look for the lost one, bring back the stray, bandage the wounded and make the weak strong ... I shall be a True Shepherd unto them."

Jeremiah. 31:8 -10  "Listen, nations, to the Word of YHVH ... 'He Who scattered Israel gathers him.  He guards him as a shepherd guards his flock.'"

Jeremiah 23:3  "The remnant of My Flock I Myself (YHVH, from the foregoing verse) will gather from all the countries where I have dispersed them and will bring them back to their pastures.  They shall be fruitful and increase in numbers."

There can be no doubt that YHVH Himself is the Shepherd, the Savior of Israel.  Yet, the very next verse (Jer. 23:5,6) is a famous Messianic announcement, referring to the Coming of  "a virtuous Branch - Who will reign as True King" of Israel. "In His Days Judah will be saved and Israel dwell in confidence." This, no doubt, refers to His "Second Coming" "And this is the Name He will be called: 'YHVH our Integrity'"

One certainly needs no theological degree to construe from these identifying markers, that the Messiah is YHVH Himself!  But, let us check from the Brit HaChadasha (New Testament), what YAHU'SHUAH the Messiah testifies regarding Himself:

John 10:14  "I am the Good Shepherd.  I know My Own, and My Own know Me ... (verse 16)  And there will be only One Flock and One Shepherd."

Note: If  YHVH  is the Good Shepherd, as we have conclusively proven from the Tanach above;  if YAHU'SHUAH the Messiah claims to be the Good Shepherd, and if there will be ONE Shepherd only - then YAHU'SHUAH must be that Shepherd of the scattered sheep of Israel - YHVH God of Israel Himself!

John 10:11 "I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd is One Who lays down His Life for His sheep ... (verse)  I lay down My Life in order to take it up again.  No one takes it from Me ... as it is in My Power to lay it down, so it is in My Power to take it up again."

Note: The True Messiah has the Power over His Own Death!  There is only One God Who has the Power over Life and Death.

Conclusion: The True Messiah is identified as being YHVH Himself, the Savior and Shepherd of Israel

We will now survey some controversial evidence of the True Messiah, from Jewish traditional literature Sources:

The Twelfth of the Principles of Faith of Judaism, reads as follows: " I believe with complete faith in the coming of the Messiah. Even though He may tarry, I will eagerly await his coming everyday." Maimonides Commentary on the Mishnah/Sanhedrin

The Twelfth Principle of the Jewish faith states that a Jew must believe in Messiah, along with the regathering of the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

Rambam Mishnah Torah: The Rambam stated that, "Anyone who does not believe in Meshiach, or whoever does not look forward to His coming, denies not only the teachings of the other prophets but also those of the Torah and of Moshe our teacher."

The re-gathering of the Tribes of Israel is one of the signs of the true Messiah in Judaism.  According to Rambam:  "The Messianic King will arise in the future and restore the Davidic Kingdom to its former state and original sovereignty. He will build the Sanctuary and gather the dispersed of Israel.  All the laws will be reinstituted in His days as they were aforetimes, sacrifices will be offered, and the Sabbatical Years and Jubilee Years will be observed fully as ordained by the Torah."

Sanhedrin 110b; Bemidbar Rabba 16: 25: "The ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, exiled by the Assyrians before the destruction of the Temple and dispersed beyond the river ambation and the 'Mountains of Darkness' will also return."

Rashi's confirmation regarding Shiloh: In the blessing over Judah in Genesis 49:9-12, Jacob prophesied of a Coming One from Judah called Shiloh, and to Him would be the Gathering (obedience) of the peoples. The rabbis know that this is speaking of Messiah!  Rashi wrote: "This (Shiloh) means the Messianic King, for the Kingdom is His .."

Testimony of the Jewish High Priest in Messiah's time - from the 'New Testament': John 11:51  "... It was as High Priest that Caiaphas made this Prophecy that Messiah was to die for the nation, and not for the nation only, but to gather together in unity the scattered children of God."

Note:  How Messiah is proclaimed as the One to bring about the re-gathering of the exiles of Israel, proclaimed in the Tanach to be YHVH Who would initiate this  'by Himself' personally.

Messiah's Own Testimony regarding who these 'scattered children of God' are: Matthew 15:24, YAHU'SHUAH states, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the House of Israel." And He sent His disciples to the 'Lost sheep of the House of Israel' only (Matt. 10:5,6)

Therefore,  YAHU'SHUAH the True Messiah is:

  • The Shepherd of the 12 Tribes of Israel;

  • He gathers them from the far corners of the earth where they have been scattered amongst the nations for their contempt of His Covenant;

  • He will lead them back to the physical Land of Israel to resettle them;

  • He will unite the scattered Tribes of Israel into One;

  • He will renew His Eternal Covenant with them.

 

One Mission - two dispensations

YAHU'SHUAH told many parables about lost sheep and separating the sheep from the goats. 'Sheep and YHVH's Flock' in Scripture is always speaking of the 12 Tribes of Israel!  It is important though, that the reader distinguishes between:

  • The Tribe of Judah (the Jews), who remained identified descendants of ancient Israel throughout time and who were Divinely mandated as "The Guardians of the Oracles (Word) of YHVH" (Rom. 3:2), and secondly,

  • The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel - exiled to Babylon in the 8th century BCE, where after they assimilated with the nations and disappeared as an identifiable remnant of ancient Israel.  Biblical Prophecy though,  foretold their re-identification and re-uniting with Judah into ONE nation (Ezek. 37:15) (Refer also to "The reidentification of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel" - a phenomenon which has been taking place over the last decade, at a notably fast increasing tempo).

Both these sections rate as 'Israel' in Scripture; both have been exiled and scattered across the world; both will be regathered and returned to the Land of Israel in God's Salvation Plan - though in two distinctly separate modes and dispensations - and both by the One only True Shepherd of Israel.

It is this factor of two different dispensations which has been the cause of much confusion and misunderstanding regarding the Messianic Designation of Gathering the scattered exiles and Returning them to the Covenental Land. A time span of 2000 years and more would be involved in the two varying time dispensations. In order for one and the same Shepherd to perform this miraculous Regathering, it would require a Messiah with Power over Death - with Eternal Life!  Only the Almighty Creator God of Israel could do this job!

To make the riddle even more impossible, one section of the exiles (the Ten Lost Tribes) had to be re-identified and restored to the Original True Hebraic Faith after millennia-long total assimilation with the other nations, while the other section (Judah) had to remain as the identifiable Guardians of the Faith - as a foundational Pillar to which the stray ones could return!  This was the cause for great animosity between the two sections, which would have to be overcome to complete the Regathering into One.

One section would accept the Messiah at the outset of His Reconciliatory Mission  to reconcile and regather them (requiring their restored conformance with the terms of the Covenant), but in time,  they would totally change His True Identity in line with the pagan concepts which they have been degrading to during their exile amongst the nations, where they would worship "strange gods" (according to the Curse of the Covenant as reviewed above - Leviticus 26:14).  They desperately needed to be 'saved' from this mire of destitution and depravity!  (refer The Authentic Gospel of the Kingdom)

The other section (the Tribe of Judah - the Jews, and the Tribe of Benjamin) would have to be temporarily blinded to this Mission of their Messiah to the "Lost sheep of the House of Israel" (the Lost 10 Tribes of Northern Israel) awaiting their own Regathering and Return to the Covenant Land towards the End of the Dispensation.  Theirs would be the task, amongst others, after their Regathering, to start the rebuilding of the Land and the City of Jerusalem as identified 'Israel' (Jews), in preparation for the establishment of the earthly Kingdom of YHVH.

The argument might be raised at this stage, that "The Jews were not regathered by the Messiah, Whom they reject".  The answer to this, simply holds further confirmation in the Grand Design of YHVH, namely that Messiah of the Ten Tribes is YHVH Himself! (This statement of course, conditional upon the rendering of the True Hebraic Messiah - not the 'counterfeit image' which apostate Ten Israel have come to believe in during their exile!).  Thus, whether YHVH Himself brings them in, or His Messianic Manifestation - it remains the same God!

Great guard should also be taken against trying to enforce these distinguished two Divine Operations into One, or to falsely laying claim to the Covenental Promises to Israel - a common practice amongst non-Jewish believers which is referred to as "Replacement Theology".  According to this teaching and belief,  God has withdrawn His Promises and Covenant from the Jews, and awarded it to the "followers of Jesus".

The contents of the above study should assist any serious searcher after Truth, to find the One True Messiah and Shepherd of Israel.

 

 

The current Hebraic Restoration Movement identified as the Restoration, re-identification and re-uniting of the Lost 10 Tribes with Judah (the Jews)

Let it be emphasised here, that the worldwide Hebraic Roots Restoration Movement is a totally unassociated movement of totally unassociated groups (anything from individuals to thousands).  It is not an organised association, nor even a consortium of related organisations or groups.  The only way in which members of this movement identify with each other or with this 'Movement',  is in their acceptance (on different levels and in non comparative sequence) of the various tenets of Truth of the 'Original Bible Faith'.  These tenets are 're-discovered' by these Truth seekers in their individual and sincere study of the Bible. An indisputable factor in this spiritual process is that, no doubt,  it is driven by the Power and Spirit of God,  as indicated in the ancient Bible Prophecies, some of which we have reviewed above.

Let us refer to our leading Scripture again:

Jeremiah 23:7  “See then, the days are coming - it is YHVH Who speaks - when people will no longer say: ‘As YHVH lives Who brought the sons of Israel out of the Land of Egypt!’  but, ‘As YHVH lives Who led back and brought home the descendants of the House of Israel out of the Land of the North and from all the countries to which He had dispersed them, to live on their own soil.’”

In our sub-heading we referred to the yet pending outcome of this ancient Prophecy as "the most spectacular and stupendous Event of all time".

The Exodus, to Jews,  is the most important Festive Commemoration on the Jewish Calendar.  It depicts the great historic event of the liberation of the whole nation of Israel, after four centuries of slavery in the Land of Egypt, in approximately the year 1250 BCE.  After successive approaches and pleadings “to let My people go”, accompanied by ‘Signs and Wonders’ (the Ten Plagues), the ruling Farao still refused.  God then intervened and led this nation out of Egypt by way of many natural disasters.  Under miraculous Divine Guidance more than a million people, with their possessions, their cattle and their sheep, wandered in the barren Sinai desert for 40 years on their way to the Promised Land, Israel.  Their shoes and clothes never wore out and food, in the form of manna which “rained from Heaven”, was provided daily.

The second part of our leading Text above predicts an even greater event to overshadow this great Epic, when "YHVH leads back and brings home the descendants of the House of Israel out of the Land of the North and from all the countries to which He had dispersed them, to live on their own soil.”

Like many other interpreters of Scripture, the author of this Web Site, until recently, has applied this 'regathering of Israel' as applying to Jews (Judah) only, who have been miraculously returning to the Land of their forefathers, mainly since the 1930's.  Hitler's barbarous Holocaust, contrary to his intentions of wiping out God's Remnant nation, has, more than any other factor, resulted in driving Judah back to Israel, the physical Covenant Land of YHVH.  This resulted in the miraculous re-erection of the Land and nation of Israel, when 2000 years of exile and scattering amongst the nations of the entire world, failed to wipe out their Sacred Link and Identity!  As prophesied 3000 years ahead of Time, Jerusalem was being re-established as the Capital of Israel, much to the embarrassment of the 'Holy Roman Catholic Empire' which had declared it 'dead'!  And much to the discontent of the entire United Nations Community who time and time again, vote almost unanimously in one after the other Resolution over the last fifty years, against any Jewish sovereignty or rights over this disputed fraction of Land in the volatile Middle East!  And serving as a Divine Challenge to the nations of the world who almost unanimously back the Palestinians in their usurping and baseless claims to ownership of God's Covenant Land and City - Jerusalem!

The recent escalating developments in the Hebraic Roots Restoration Movement, have now widened our vision of Prophecy.  It has no become clear that the gradual fulfilment of the Prophecy of Restoration has been in process a long time already.  The last 4 centuries of history, have witnessed a gradual awakening amongst serious students of the Bible - no doubt advanced by the unshackling of the hold which 'The Church' held throughout the 'Middle Ages' over the minds of people.  The pace of awakening in this 'Reformation' has accelerated over the last 50 years due to the modern Knowledge revolution and the extent of 'free thinking' allowed to individuals.

The decade of the 90's resulted in an 'explosion' of knowledge, spurred on by the technological revolution.  'Religion' had its fair share of this explosion, as knowledge was shared and disseminated, first in print, radio and TV - and then, the Internet!

As believers, knowingly or unknowingly,  identified with the 'Hebrew Roots Restoration Movement' the world over,  and 're-discovered' the various tenets of the Original Faith of the Bible;  as they engaged in restoring these religious observances, they identified ever closer with Judaism!  Many chose to convert fully - but this 'final' resolution still remains a highly contentious issue which may be identified from Scripture, as the 'Jealousy of Ephraim' towards their 'brother' Judah (Isaiah 11:12).

What is clear, is that this Restoration Movement (which includes the Sacred Name, Sabbath, Jewish Feasts. Torah, Kashrut, etc.) is an ever-increasing tidal wave of Biblical knowledge and restoration of what otherwise could be classified as tenets of Judaism, which is sweeping the religious world.  It is now also clear, that the interpretation of our leading text, concerning the wider application of 'the Return',  applies not only to Jews but to the wider 10 Tribe re-identification.

Many of these 'Hebraic restorers' have a distinct urge to 'return' and assist Judah with re-settling the Land of Israel.  Without proper Halachic (according to Torah) conversion to Judaism, this presents a hitherto unbridgeable obstacle.  It is the conviction of the author of this Web Site, that the world stage has been set for the 'Grand Finale' of the Return and re-unification of the two 'opposing' Houses of Israel - a fete that only the direct Intervention by the Shepherd of Israel can attain.  A fete that will stun the world and surpass the great Miracle of the ancient Exodus, that is,  when millions of believers the world over, remnants of the 'Lost Ten Tribes of Israel', rediscover their ancient Hebrew Roots, after 2700 years of dispersion amongst the non-Jewish nations, and freely choose to return to their ancient heritage!  Only miraculous Divine Intervention could heal this ancient breach between Judah and the 10 Northern Tribes of Israel, to mold it into One!  It will no doubt also require Divine Influence to remove the seemingly unbridgeable obstacles which currently still make it impossible for the two 'brothers' to re-unite!

Only miraculous Divine Intervention could succeed in proving the Faithfulness of YHVH to His Covenantal Promises to Israel of old!

The fulfillment of the Prophecy of our leading Scripture may be closer to realisation than any of us might expect!

Divine Invitation to all Nations

Though Israel is God's 'Sign Piece' to the world, His Invitation goes to all nations and all humanity.  This in fact, was His sole Purpose with the nation of Israel - to show and inform the world what He demands from His Creation and what the Keys of Life really is all about.  Perfect Peace and Success in life can only be attained by entering into, and adhering to His Eternal Covenant.

John 10:16  "And there are other sheep I have that are not of this Fold.  And these I have to lead as well.  They too will listen to My Voice, and there will only be One Flock."

The Book of Revelations describes the huge crowd of people who stood before God's Throne as over-comers: Revelation 7:9  "After that (having been shown the overcomers from the 12 Tribes of Israel) I saw a huge number, impossible to count, of people from every nation, race, tribe and language. They were standing in front of the Throne ... dressed in white robes and holding palms in their hands.  They shouted aloud, 'Victory to our God Who sits on the Throne ..."
 

John 10:14  "I am the Good Shepherd.  I know My Own, and My Own know Me ... And there will be only One Flock and One Shepherd."
