Ten Tribes Studies
Note from Brit-Am:
"State of Israel, Friends and Enemies. Prophetic Future" by Alexander Zephyr
was edited in part by Yair Davidiy.
It contains information and insights of value.
Veteran followers of ours will remember the articles by Alexander Zephyr that we posted in the past and the debates that sometimes followed them.
Zephyr always knew how to make his point and to come up with new revelations.
He made his mark as an original thinker and genuine researcher.
His work is a contribution to our own genre and is worth obtaining and reading.

Â In the time when the waves of the anti-Semitism and hatred against the
Jewish people and the State of Israel have reached its apogee, when
the very survival of our people is at stake, it is important to
withstand the massive false propaganda of the pro-Palestinian and
Arab-Muslim world by demonstrating true Scriptural, historical, and
modern Geo-political facts about State of Israel, the Palestinians,
and ongoing so called "Peace Process." By ordering these books, you
will disseminate the truth and tremendously help the Jewish nation to
survive in our long and lonely struggle against the unjust and corrupt
May God of Israel bless you and your family.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Shalom,

We have begun the month of Adar or rather Adar-Aleph meaning Adar A or Adar no.1 since this year there are two months of Adar i.e. Adar -Aleph and Adar-Bait meaning Adar no.1 and Adar no.2.
Thus year on the Hebrew Calendar is a leap year so an extra month of Adar has been added. This happens every 4 years.
These months are the end of the Hebrew year.
They are followed by Nissan the first month of the next Year.
Adar in Hebrew connotes Might. It is a time of inner strengthening (Shem me-Shmuel, Rabbi Shmuel Bornsztain, 1855-1926).
It is a season of ingathering.
There is a saying, "When Adar arrives, happiness increases".
Shem me-Shmuel says that the first Adar (i.e. this month) is actually the additional month. He associates it with the quality of Love and links it to the Tribe of Benjamin and to the two Tribes of Joseph, Ephraim and Manasseh. These tribes represent the offspring of Rachel.
This is considered a favorable season.
Rabbi Tsadok (Rabbi Zadok ha-Kohen Rabinowitz of Lublin, 1823-1900) associates Adar with Joseph. Just as Joseph could be counted as two tribes i.e. Ephraim and Manasseh so too does Adar regularly become two months instead of one.
The work "Shiftei Yisroel" by Fishel Mael does not seem to relate to the two months of Adar but tells us that the month of Adar in general has the sign of fishes. The most commonly accepted Tribe for Adar is Naftali (according to HaGra, and Ha-Ari). Another opinion (Rabad) links Adar toÂ the Tribe of Joseph.
The month of Adar is associated especially with the Feast of Purim which will be celebrated on Adar-2.
3. The Book of Hosea: A Few Highlights
Three sons of Gomer (i.e. Cimmerians) represent three sections of the exiled 10 tribes who will link up with European Nations. They do not represent Judah who is separately spoken ofÂ (1:7).
Much of Hosea is directed expressly to the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.
The Lost Tribes of Israel will be rejected, then accepted (1:10) (Yebamot 17), (2:23).Â They will be extremely numerous (1:10).
They will have worshipped the baal (2:8, 2:13).
Righteousness, judgment, lovingkindness, and mercy are required of us (2:19).
The Lost Ten Tribes must Return to God, to Jerusalem [reconciliation with Judah], and to the Kingdom of David (3:5).
Ephraim represents all of the northern Lost Ten Tribes of Israel as well as the specific tribe of Ephraim.
Ephraim will have brought forth "strange children"(5:7).
Gilead and Schechem (representing the USA) were known for their murderers and violence (6:2).
Judah will be preparing the foundations of the Land for all the Tribes to Return (Hosea 6:11). The Exiles will return from the West (11:10).
Judah will have remained faithful (11:14).
Ephraim is described as a cheating merchant (12:7); cf. Terms applied to Britain, "Nation of shopkeepers", "Perfidious Albion".
Ephraim is to the west (mostly) from the Land of Israel (11:10).
Ephraim is rich.
Ephraim is a merchant (12:7).
Ephraim mistakenly puts his trust in Assyria and other "lovers".
Association with Machmad (i.e. Islam) (Mohamot) augurs not well for Ephraim and is liable to bring disaster due to Muslim terrorists (9:1).
The overall message of Hosea is rejection of Ephraim by the Almighty followed by a reconciliation. This also applies to the other Lost Tribes and to Judah.Â
Israel will return unto God and be blessed once again (chapter 14).Â
