The Ten Lost Tribes will be Redeemed says the Prophet Hosea
Duration: 15.18 minutes
The Prophet Hosea prophesied about the Lost Ten Tribes. Hosea himself was the son of the Prince of the Tribe of Reuben which was among the fi
rst three of the Tribes to be exiled. Hosea begat three children by his wife, "Gomer." The names given to the these children symbolize the fate of the Ten Tribes both in their Time of Exile and in the age of Ultimate Redemption. This may have already begun. At all events, our organization, "Brit-Am, Hebraic Tribes," is beginning the process of identifying who the Ten Tribes are and where they are, and why they became what they did. We are opening the door.
Article slightly adapted from the Quora Article, " Who was Lo-ruhamah in the Bible?" by Yair Davidiy
The Book of Hosea, chapter 1, tells us how Gomer, wife of Hosea, first gave birth to a son named 'Jezreel'. One of the meanings of this name suggests "scattering" or "being cast away" or "estranged." After that Gomer bore a daughter who was given the name, "Lo-Ruchamah", meaning "Not be Shown Mercy". The girl was called by that name since it reflected the attitude that would be shown to the northern House of Israel meaning the Ten Tribes.
Hosea (KJB) 1:
6 And she conceived again and bore a daughter. Then God said to him: Call her name Lo-Ruhamah [Hebrew: "Not be Shown Mercy"], For I will no longer have mercy on the house of Israel, But I will utterly take them away.
"Lo-Ruhamah" is a Hebrew name connoting "Not be Shown Mercy." This is the cognomen given a daughter of the Prophet Hosea and his wife Gomer. The name was given to symbolize the destiny of the northern Ten Tribes of Israel. These Tribes it was prophesied were to be exiled, to lose awareness of their ancestry, to be come technically non-Israelite Gentiles for a while, and in the end to be recognized anew and return and re-unite with Judah.
This Prophecy applied to the northern Ten Tribes of Israel. The three children of Hosea and Gomer, Jezreel, Lo-Ruhamah, and Lo-Ami (who was born later) represented the northern Ten Tribes of Israel.
The prophecy of being lost and losing their Israelite Identity did not apply to Judah (i.e. the Jews) who were expressly excluded from the equation, cf.
Hosea (KJB) 1: 7 Yet I will have mercy on the house of Judah, Will save them by the LORD their God, And will not save them by bow, Nor by sword or battle, By horses or horsemen.
After the birth of the girl, Lo-Ruhama, another boy was born to Hosea and his wife, Gomer.
Hosea (KJB) 1: 8 Now when she had weaned Lo-Ruhamah, she conceived and bore a son. 9 Then God said: Call his name "Lo-Ammi" [Hebrew: "Not My People"], For you are not My people, And I will not be your God. 10 E2 Yet the number of the children of Israel Shall be as the sand of the sea, Which cannot be measured or numbered. And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, You are Not My people [Hebrew: "Lo-Ammi"], There it shall be said to them, You are sons of the living God.
This child was named "Lo-Ami" i.e. "Not My People." The Almighty declares HE will disown them. They will go into Exile, and will lose knowledge of their identity. They will worship other gods as Hosea explains further on. They shall not be known as worshipers of the Almighty. Despite this, while still in their places of Exile, Hosea predicts they will increase and multiply. In the End Times, the Almighty will once again acknowledge them. The Ten Tribes will eventually return to worship the God of Israel.
Noted the verses,
Hosea (KJB) 1: 10 And it shall come to pass in the place where it was said to them, You are not My people [Lo-Ammi], There it shall be said to them, You are sons of the living God.
Hosea (KJB) 1: 11 Then the children of Judah and the children of Israel Shall be gathered together, And appoint for themselves one head; And they shall come up out of the land, For great will be the day of Jezreel!
The link between the Almighty and His People Israel will be renewed. Judah and the Ten Tribes will gather together in their places of Exile under one leader and go up to the Land of Israel. The name "Jezreel" that previously reflected the meaning of "scattered" or "cast away" will then receive the alternative meanings of "gathered in" or "sown anew" in the Land of Israel.
So too, "Lo-Ruhamah" i.e. "Not be Shown Mercy" shall be re-named "Ruhamah" i.e. "Be Shown Mercy."
Hosea (KJB) 2: 1 Say to your brethren, My people [ami], And to your sisters, Mercy [Ruchama] is shown..
Hosea (KJB) 2: 25 Then I will sow her for Myself in the earth, And I will have mercy on her who had not obtained mercy; Then I will say to those who were not My people 'You are My people!' And they shall say, 'You are my God!'
