ISRAEL'S NEW LAND
We are ready, now, to search out the actual location
of the lost tribes of the outcast House of Israel.
We know they exist today as a Nation, and a Company of Nations powerful, looked upon as Gentiles.
And when we find them we shall find a ruler, still today occupying the throne of David!
Many passages of prophecy tell of these people in these
Prophecies not to be understood until this "time of the end."
Prophecies containing a Message to be carried to these people by those to whom God reveals it!
First it is necessary to fix in mind these facts:
The prophet Amos wrote, in the days of the 18th of
the 19 kings of the House of Israel, (Amos 1:1):
"Behold the eyes of the Lord are upon the sinful kingdom [House of Israel, Judah had not yet sinned],
and I will destroy it [the kingdom, or government, not the people] from off the face of the earth.
For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like corn is sifted in a sieve,
yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth" (Amos 9:8-9).
prophecy usually is applied
to the scattered condition of the Jews.
But it has nothing to do with the Jews, or House of Judah,
but refers to the ten tribed House of Israel driven to Assyrian captivity, then migrating from there and scattering among other nations.
prophecy says that Israel
(not Judah) was
to be sifted among other nations,
these Israelites losing their identity, yet God has protected and kept them
"not the least grain shall fall upon the earth."
It was during this time
that the children of the House of Israel were to
"abide many days without a king" (Hosea 3:4).
That these people did sift through the nations is clear.
Many New Testament passages indicate this.
Although many of them still were scattered among various nations in the first century A.D., a portion of them had become established in a definite location of their own by Jeremiah's time, 140 years after their original captivity.
But these Israelites who possessed the birthright eventually were to come to a new land of their own.
The Eternal says, in II Samuel 7:10 and I Chronicles
"Moreover, I will appoint a place for my people Israel,
and will plant them [Jeremiah was commissioned to do the planting of the throne among them]
that they may dwelt in a place of their own and move no more."
The context of the whole passage shows this refers, not to the Promised Land of Canaan, but a different land where these scattered Israelites were to gather, after being removed from the promised land of Palestine, and while that land was lying idle and in possession of the Gentiles.
Notice carefully! After
being removed from their land, being sifted among all nations, abiding
many days without a king, losing their identity, they are to be "planted"
in far away strange land, now to become their own.
And, note it-after reaching this place, they are to move no more!
That is, of course, during this present age.
While other prophecies indicate these birthright holders were to become a colonizing people, spreading around the world, it is plain that the spreading out must be from this appointed place, which must remain the "home" seat of government for David's throne.
Mark this clearly! Once
this "place of their own" was reached, and the throne of David planted
there, they were to move no more.
Therefore, the location of this people today is the place where Jeremiah planted David's throne more than 2,500 years ago!
Therefore prophecies pertaining to this day, or to the location of this people just prior to Christ's return, will tell us the location of Jeremiah's planting.
The House of Israel is yet to return, at Christ's coming
yet to plant grapes in Samaria their original country.
Prophecies telling where they
shall, in that future day, migrate from; will reveal the location of the
"lost" ten tribed Israel!
The two succeeding "overturns" of the throne, too, must be located in this same place.
