This scattering or World-wide dispersion of "The House of Israel" Moses talked about in Deuteronomy was fulfilled when, In 745-721 B.C. after being taken captive and driven by the Assyrians into the Caucasus region between the Black and Caspian Seas, the tribes of the "House of Israel" plus tens of thousands of Israelites from "The House of Judah" were used by their Assyrian conquerors as a buffer state to ward off any advances by the Medes.
The remainder of the "House
of Judah" was later taken to Babylon during the conquering of Jerusalem
by Nebuchadnezzor in 586 B.C., 135 years after the"House
of Israel" was captured by their Assyrian conquerors! It is a remnant
of these Jewish Israelites who, in part, later returned from Babylonian
captivity to the "Land of Judah" with Ezra and Nehemiah beginning around
B.C., after having been infiltrated by many foreigners who became temple
workers, most of them Kenites, i.e. descendants of Cain. This remnant of
"The House of Judah" which returned from Babylon, lived in the land
by Gentile sufferance, though doubtless by the providential care of the
Lord, until Messiah came and was crucified by soldiers of the fourth world-empire,
Rome (Dan.2:40; 7:7),
Daniel 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
with pressure to do so by the Kenites, who had by then become the Scribes and Pharisees, Christ addresses in Mt.23. (Mt.23:1-2,13--33)
Matthew 23:1 ¶Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
Matthew 23:13 ¶But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in. 14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation. 15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. 16 Woe unto you, ye blind guides, which say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but whosoever shall swear by the gold of the temple, he is a debtor! 17 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gold, or the temple that sanctifieth the gold? 18 And, Whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is nothing; but whosoever sweareth by the gift that is upon it, he is guilty. 19 Ye fools and blind: for whether is greater, the gift, or the altar that sanctifieth the gift? 20 Whoso therefore shall swear by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all things thereon. 21 And whoso shall swear by the temple, sweareth by it, and by him that dwelleth therein. 22 And he that shall swear by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him that sitteth thereon. 23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. 25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess. 26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also. 27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness. 28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. 29 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, 30 And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 32 Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. 33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
who had worked their way into positions of leadership within the church. Soon after (A.D. 70) Rome destroyed the city and Temple.
The "Times of the Gentiles" began with the captivity of Judah under Nebuchadnezzar (2 Chr.36:1-21). Since that time Jerusalem has been, as Christ said, "trodden down by the Gentiles"
The Times of the Gentiles, Summary:
"The Times of the Gentiles" is that long period that began with the Babylonian
captivity of Judah (not Israel) under Nebuchadnezzar, and is to be brought
to an end by the destruction of Gentile world power by the "stone cut without
Daniel 2:34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. 35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever See The Stone Kingdom and The Birthright and the Sceptre
i.e. the coming of the Lord in glory (Rev.19:11,21).
Revelation 19:11 ¶And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
Until then Jerusalem will be, as Christ said, "trodden down by the Gentiles" (Lk.21:24).
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
Meanwhile, so much for "The Jews",
for now. Let's get back to 'The Israelites". After their captivity
by the Assyrians in 745-721 B.C. and re-location below the Black and caspian
Seas they "Israel" left the Caucasus Mountains and migrated into Europe,
and to North America, becoming known as Caucasians. This is an incomplete
list of names for various groups of Israelites as they migrated. Khumri,
Cimmerians, Sakkas, Sacasene, Sacasune, Schythians, Cimbri, Thraco-Cimmerians,
Celt, Galatians, Germans, Saxons, Normans, Danes, Gimira, Kimmeroii, Iskuza,
Gauls, Angles, Picts, Iberes, Scots, Basques, Bretons, Goths, Vandals,
Lombards, Franks, Burgundians, Ostrogoths, Daci, Belgae, Massagetae. These
are now, the Christian nations of the world. In their ignorance
they call themselves gentiles. Yes, America, England, Canada,
Ireland, Denmark, Scotland, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway,
Finland, Australia, Germany, France, and others. All were countries founded
by Israelites. Log unto pamphlets
and #1064 to learn more.
In 721 B.C., well over eight hundred thousand Israelite men 2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families from ten different tribes "The House of Israel", including some but not all of the tribes Judah and Benjamin "The House of Judah", were taken captive brought out of the promised land by the Assyrians. 2 Kings 16:9 - 17:6
135 years later in 586 B.C., Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried more than one half million Israelite men 2 Samuel 24:1 - 9 and their families, those remaining from the other two tribes, of Benjamin and Judah( "The House of Judah" the Jews), away to Babylon. 2 Kings 25:1 - 21 These were the only remaining Israelites in the Promised Land.
70 years after Judah's captivity the temple was rebuilt and 42,360 Nehemiah 7:66 - 67 from the tribes of Judah and Benjamin returned again "unto Jerusalem and all of Judah, every one unto his city". Ezra 8:1 - 20 & Nehemiah 7:5 - 45 Note: Nehemiah 7:46 - 65 These were not Israelites or even of the tribe of Judah, but we include them as and call them Jews today.
What happened to the rest of the one and one half million Israelites and their families? James 1:1 - See Acts 26:7 This promise was made to the twelve tribes of Israelites who were scattered abroad and are the Christian nations of today. It was not made to the Jews. There is a difference as this verse proves. Read #1062 Acts 26:6-7
Inland Europe became settled between
the seventh century BC and the fifth century AD much like the Americas
became settled in between the sixteenth century AD and the twentieth century
AD. Did you ever wonder where the Khumri, Celts, Cimbri, Galations,
Germans, Saxons, Gimira, Gauls, Picts, Iberes, Scots, Basques, Bretons,
Goths, Vandals, Lombards, Franks, Burgundians, Ostrogoths, Daci, Belgae,
Massagetae, Kimmeroii, Iskuza, Cimmerians, Scythians, Danes, Normans and
Vikings came from?

Do you think you are a Gentile? What percent of your blood came through Jacob's veins? Do you think maybe we would have less trouble in our lives if we not only realized who are ancestors were, but listened to what we are taught in the old testament?
Do you remember who Jesus said would hear his voice? John 10:1 - 27 and who He said are not His! John 10:26
I have heard His voice!
