Proof that the House of Judah and House of Israel became two separate nations can be found in the very first verse of Hosea 1: “The word of the Lord that came unto Hosea … [during] the days of Ezziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam … king of Israel.” The kingdom of Israel became separated from Judah after the death of Solomon and his son Rehoboam began to reign.
Jeroboam of the House of Israel led the northern ten tribes astray. They became worse than the kingdom of Judah. Hosea was to take himself a wife of bad character. She bore a son and daughter that meant the house of Israel would cease to exist in the eyes of the world. God denied Israel as being His people. He said “I will not be your God.”
Finally, God said they would be His people and He would be their God. Before God will have mercy upon the Lost Ten Tribes at the end of the age, notice what He told Hosea to write that would happen to them! Hosea 2:11, “I will also cause all her mirth to cease, her feast days, her new moons, and her Sabbaths, and all her solemn feasts.” Jeroboam caused Israel to change the holy days because he was afraid they would return to David’s dynasty. With that in mind: God rejected Israel because of keeping the Feast days at the wrong time and month.
We have proven in the past and in our books The U.S. and British Commonwealth in prophecy and The History of God’s People and the Coming New World Order that the United States and Britain are from Joseph, while the other tribes are nations on the western and northern section of Europe. God sifted them through the nations, and they lost track of the sign of keeping the Sabbath that they were His people. Do any of these nations keep the 7th day Sabbath? No! They keep Sunday, the venerable Roman day of the sun. Do they keep any of the holy days? No! They keep pagan Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.
No wonder God said He would not be their God. They turned against Him and His ways. That will all change when Christ intervenes at the end of the age. He will cause war to cease in the earth. He will shower His righteousness, judgments, in lovingkindness, and in mercy.
Before this, God says: “For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince …” But “Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and His goodness in the LATTER DAYS” (Hosea 3:4-5).
God wants Israel to return to Him, but they are blinded today and cannot return! Israel has fallen because of sin. Of COURSE, Romans 11 explains what will happen to them in the future. Ezekiel 37 also explains they have a future. They will be resurrected from the dead. This will be a time of rejoicing for 1,000 years. There is a difference in US and those who were blinded.
We are striving to become a firstfruits or obtain the first resurrection. We will become composed of SPIRIT – IMMORTALITY. Others will live in there fleshly body as children of God.
Joseph’s two sons were guaranteed vast riches, called the birthright, in the last days (Genesis 49) They were to become the greatest single nation and commonwealth of nations in the history of the world. No two nations match, being brothers and the richest nations of all time, other than the United States and Great Britain. The word Britain means “covenant land”! Joseph stayed together for a long period of time; and when God’s timing had come, the United States became the single greatest nation. Meanwhile, the British had been taking in territories around the world.
The British, meaning “covenant man,” ruled over 700 million of the one billion people alive on earth. They controlled 66 countries, much of Africa, India, China, etc. They controlled Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States until God moved America [Manasseh] to become a nation of its own.
Britain took the Bible around the world in the 1870-90s. Joseph has now turned its back upon God. They have broken the “everlasting covenant” given to our forefathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob [Israel]. As a direct result, both are going downhill of a slippery slope of Socialism!!! Daniel 12:7[b] says God will scatter the power of the holy people!!! We must repent.
