AMAZING DEVELOPMENT TAKING PLACE IN ISRAEL
An amazing development is currently taking place in Israel.
There are millions of persons across the world, who believe they are from the ancient non-Jewish House of Joseph or Ephraim, from the Northern Ten Tribes.
Biblical Prophecy is clear and emphatic, that not only the Jews (House of Judah) would return to the Land of their forefathers (as we have seen happening since the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and the re-establishment of the State of Israel in 1948), but also the exiled Northern Kingdom must return. The latter, who began assimilating into Gentile cultures shortly after their exile to Assyria in 722 BCE, will in the ‘End Time’ be re-identified and re-united with the House of Judah into one nation, according to these Prophecies (Ezek. 37:15).
The Tikkun (or repair) of this 3,000-year old unreconciled rift between these two families have been addressed by several Messianic visionaries who came to Jerusalem since the year 2000, believing that they personally had the Divine Mandate to enter into negotiations with the Rabbis of Jerusalem. Unfortunately, these claiming representatives of Ephraim and Yoseph expected the Rabbis to consider such Tikkun on their own terms and conditions, mainly to retain their non-Judah identity, which caused these negotiations to fail miserably. In compliance with Prophetic Scripture, any such negotiations should aim at bringing exiled 10-Israel back into line with the Original True Faith as proclaimed and guarded by Judah throughout the ages, according to the Divine Mandate of Gen. 49:10: “The Scepter shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh come …”
NEW STUDY LINKING 20% OF EUROPE TO A SINGLE MID EASTERN ANCESTOR

WASHINGTON (AP) — Around 80 per cent of European men are descended from a single primitive hunter, according to a new study. Researchers analyzing the Y chromosome taken from more than 1,000 men from 25 different locations in Europe found a pattern that suggests four out of five shared a common male ancestor about 40,000 years ago.
Peter Underhill, a senior researcher at the Stanford University Genome Technology Center and co-author of the study, said the research supports conclusions from archaeological, linguistic and other DNA evidence about the settlement of Europe by ancient peoples.
The study, co-authored by Underhill and more than a dozen researchers from Stanford and Europe, appeared on Friday in the journal Science.
Underhill said the researchers used the Y chromosome in the study because its rare changes establish a pattern that can be traced back hundreds of generations, thus helping to plot the movement of ancient humans.
The Y chromosome is inherited only by sons from their fathers. When sperm carrying the Y chromosome fertilises an egg it directs the resulting child to be a male. An X chromosome from the father allows a fertilised egg to be female.
The Y chromosome has about 60 million DNA base pairs. Changes in those base pairs happen infrequently, said Underhill, but they occur often enough to establish patterns that can be used to trace the ancestry of people. He said that researchers looking at the 1,007 chromosome samples from Europe identified 22 specific markers that formed a specific pattern of change. About 80 percent of all European males shared a single pattern, suggesting that they had a common ancestor thousands of generations ago.
About 8,000 years ago, said Underhill, a more advanced people, the Neolithic, migrated to Europe from the Middle East, bringing with them a new Y chromosome pattern and a new way of life: agriculture. About 20 percent of Europeans now have the Y chromosome pattern from this migration.
The researcher said that archaeological digs in European caves clearly show that before 8,000 years ago most humans lived by gathering and hunting. After that, there are traces of grains and other agricultural products.
