Highlights of Ezekiel
from a Lost Tribes Brit-Am Point of View (source: "Origin" by Yair Davidiy)
Ezekiel (37:15-28) saw the return of the Ten Tribes as an
indispensable requirement for the deliverance of Israel and Judah. God will
once again accept Judah and all Israel (16:62). Ezekiel (23:2-3)
indicates that from the very beginning the two sections of the Children of
Israel, i.e. Judah and Israel or Ephraim were distinct entities with their
own predispositions. The Book of Ezekiel at its primary level is mainly
concerned with Judah but here and there it contains messages for the Lost
Ten Tribes of the greatest importance. Ezekiel refers to the three stages
of exile of the Lost Ten Tribes (11:14 according to Commentators). They
will be ingathered (11:17). God is still with them (11:16). Ezekiel (11:18)
hints that first the exiles will return to the Land of Israel and after
that they shall put away their idols and keep the Law (11:2). Ezekiel says
that Judah has an obligation to help the Lost Ten Tribes return. The
complete return of Judah is dependent upon the return of Samaria (16:53,
55, 61) meaning the Ten Tribes especially Manasseh. Manasseh today is
mainly the USA. God will renew His covenant with Judah and with Israel
(16:62). Ezekiel (chapter 26) describes the movement of Tyre to Tarshish in
Spain. He describes the international mercantile connections of Tyre
(chapter 27). He recalls Dan and Javan (the Greeks) together (27:19) as
trading with Tyre and engaged in metallurgical production.
Ezekiel 37 speaks of dead bodies being resurrected. He than
goes on to say that God told him to take the stick (in Hebrew "aetz" which
can also mean wood, or tree) and to write upon it, For Judah and for the
Children of Israel who are joined to him, i.e. For the Jews. He was told to
take another stick and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and
for all the House of Israel who are joined unto him (37:16). He was then
told to join them together and they were to be one (37:17). Bystanders saw
Ezekiel fulfill these symbolic actions and asked him what their meaning
was? He replied that Judah and Israel (the Lost Ten Tribes) are destined to
be (37:19-21) gathered together into the land of Israel and there
re-united. They are to become one kingdom and one king shall rule over them
(37:22). This King will be either a descendant of David or King David
himself. They shall keep the Law (37:24). God will dwell amongst them and
the Tabernacle-Temple will be rebuilt (37:27-28).
We learn from this the two entities Judah and Josephwill
remain separate from each other until the end times. Commentators saw the
niceties of the Hebrew original in the above passage as indicating that:
(a) The re-unification must take place initially through our own
initiative. Ezekiel is told to take the sticks and write upon them and join
them together in his own hands but then God makes them one in HIS hand
The initiation of re-unification must come from us. This is our obligation.
The first step in this movement must involve recognition of Israelite Identity.
Brit-Am should be identified with and assisted.
[Ezekiel 16:55] WHEN THY SISTERS, SODOM AND HER DAUGHTERS,
SHALL RETURN TO THEIR FORMER ESTATE, AND SAMARIA AND HER DAUGHTERS SHALL
RETURN TO THEIR FORMER ESTATE, THEN THOU AND THY DAUGHTERS SHALL RETURN TO
ESTATE. UNTIL NOW THEY ARE STILL OVERTURNED AND HAVE NOT RETURNED UNTO THEIR FORMER STATE.
This is a message for Judah: In order for Judah to realize
herself and to bring back all her exiles and rehabilitate herself Judah
must also seek the Lost Ten Tribes and cause them to return! This is
important to Judah for her own sake! It is also hinting that rehabilitation
of the Land itself is somehow connected with the return of the Lost Ten
Tribes. See our Commentary on Isaiah 56:8 and Hosea chapter six, where we
have explained that according to prophecy: part of Judah would return to
the Land and begin to build it up. Then the Lost Ten Tribes would return in
two stages together with the remnant of Judah. The first part of this
process is well on its way.
<<SODOM AND HER DAUGHTERS, SHALL RETURN TO THEIR FORMER ESTATE, AND SAMARIA
AND HER DAUGHTERS SHALL RETURN TO THEIR FORMER ESTATE>>: Malbim:
[addressing Judah] For they shall be most important section in the
returning and you subservient to them, and you shall return through them.
Abarbanel: There is no doubt that this promised ingathering will occur in
the Times of the Messiah. Until now it has never been
The Temple will be rebuilt (chapter 43). The land of Great Israel from the
Nile to the Euphrates and beyond will be divided up amongst the twelve
Tribes of Israel (chapter 47). The non-Israelite stranger who dwells among
you will receive an inheritance together with the Tribe he dwelt amongst
(47:22). The Presence of the Almighty will be strongly felt in Jerusalem.
