Prophecies of Bounty and of Dearth: Proof of the Bible
Deuteronomy 28:7 The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before you; they shall come out against you one way, and flee before you seven ways.
Your enemies will all run away from you even though they may be many more than you and have weapons and means that you lack. They will still flee.
8 The Lord will command the blessing upon you in your barns, and in all that you undertake; he will bless you in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. 9 The Lord will establish you as his holy people, as he has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in his ways.
10 All the peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.
Â 11 The Lord will make you abound in prosperity, in the fruit of your womb, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground in the land that the Lord swore to your ancestors to give you. 12 The Lord will open for you his rich storehouse, the heavens, to give the rain of your land in its season and to bless all your undertakings. You will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow.
All the nations of the world will fear you! The Bible says so.
The USA has lent money to every nation on earth.
Britain in the past also lent money to other nations and invested in them. The UK still benefits from returns on these investments. That is one of the reasons why the UK continues to appear relatively powerful and prosperous even though according to statistics it should have dwindled much more than it has.
13The Lord will make you the head, and not the tail; you shall be only at the top, and not at the bottom, if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today, by diligently observing them,
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â The Lost Ten Tribes in their places of exile had their membership in the Religious Covenant of Israel suspended. From the point of view of religious obligation they were no longer considered "Jewish" even though in the future they will be. During the intermediate period we are still in, Â the Lost Ten Tribes became "Gentiles" as far as their obligations were concerned. They were no longer obliged to keep the commandments though they are destined to do so as they were at the beginning.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â It was prophesied that the northern Tribes would forget for a long period the formal Law and be effectually "divorced"Â Â (Jeremiah 3:8). In a religious sense for a time they would no longer be considered the people of God (Hosea 2:4). In the future the Lost Ten Tribes will return. At present their legal-religious status is that of non-Israelites (Yebamot 17). These legally "non-Jewish" descendants of Israel were to fulfill a predestined role of their own. The Separation of the Israelite Tribes had a Divine Purpose, "This thing is from me" (1-Kings 12:24). In so far as the overall Divine Will was abided by so too is that aspect of the "Law" fulfilled.
The Lost Ten Tribes will have to return and accept anew the Law of Moses and Israel. This is also mentioned in the Jerusalem Talmud (Sanhedrin, 10) andÂ in the Zohar (Genesis 48:8, VaYechi, 88m).Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
Â Â Â Â Â Â
REMEMBER YE THE LAW OF MOSES MY SERVANT, WHICH I COMMANDED UNTO HIM IN HOREB FOR ALL ISRAEL, WITH THE STATUTES AND JUDGMENTSÂ [Malachi 4:4].Â Â Â Â
HE WILL TURN AGAIN, HE WILL HAVE COMPASSION UPON US; HE WILL SUBDUE OUR INIQUITIES; AND THOU WILT CAST ALL THEIR SINS INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE SEA.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
THOU WILT PERFORM THE TRUTH TO JACOB, AND THE MERCY TO ABRAHAM, WHICH THOU HAST SWORN UNTO OUR FATHERS FROM THE DAYS OF OLD [Micah 7:19-20].
Â The Jews of Judah on the other hand did remain obligated by the law. When the Jews failed to keep the law as they should have they were punished. Many of the versesin this section were fulfilled through the Jewish historical experience.Â
A list of horrible curses were given. These curses would come to pass if the Israelites disobeyed God Almighty.
The curses included being sent to Egypt in ships and sold as slaves at such cheap prices that no-one would want to buy them (Deuteronomy 28:68). It mentions a nation as swift as an eagle (Deuteronomy 28:49) coming from the corner of the earth to do these things.
These prophecies were at least in part fulfilled when the Romans (with their sacred EAGLE standards) from Italy and other parts of Europe destroyed Jerusalem.

Prophecy Fulfilled. Are the Prophecies of Deuteronomy 28 really concerned with the Jews in Roman Times? Or could they apply to the Ten Tribes in Assyrian Exile? or the Jews in Babylonian Times?

s.7Â Â 29:1-8
1 These are the words of the covenant that the Lord commanded Moses to make with the Israelites in the land of Moab, in addition to the covenant that he had made with them at Horeb. 2 Moses summoned all Israel and said to them: You have seen all that the Lord did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land, 3 the great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, and those great wonders. 4 But to this day the Lord has not given you a mind to understand, or eyes to see, or ears to hear. 5 I have led you for forty years in the wilderness. The clothes on your back have not worn out, and the sandals on your feet have not worn out; 6 you have not eaten bread, and you have not drunk wine or strong drink, so that you may know that I am the Lord your God. 7 When you came to this place, King Sihon of Heshbon and King Og of Bashan came out against us for battle, but we defeated them. 8 We took their land and gave it as an inheritance to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh.
We should remember:
The Promised Land of Canaan that was pledged to Israel includes NOT ONLY the present State of Israel BUT ALSO other areas, such as Jordan, parts of Saudi Arabia, the Gulf States, Lebanon, part of Egypt, the Sinai, Syria, parts of Turkey, and part of Iraq, and the Island of Cyprus.
All these areas together comprise the Promised Land.
These regions are all part of the Israeltie Inheritance and will return to belong to the Israelites.
9 Therefore diligently observe the words of this covenant, in order that you may succeed in everything that you do.
Â Isaiah ch.60:1-22
http://www.britam.org/ProphSumContents.htmlThe light of God will shine upon Judah and all those associated with her (60:1). Gentile leaders will come to Judah for instruction and enlightenment (60:3). "Captive" (Assimilated) Jews and Lost Israelites will return (60:4).
The Lost Ten Tribes who were exiled to the Isles of the Sea (and other places) will return (60:5). The riches of the world will be brought unto you (60:5-7). The Exiles of Judah and of the Lost Ten Tribes will return by air travel (60:8).
They will come back from the Islands and the Atlantic Ocean area (60:9).Â Other peoples will serve you willinglyÂ (60:10-11). Nations that will not serve you will be destroyed (60:12).
The persecutors of the Jews shall repent. Their descendants shall request forgiveness and acknowledge the basic relativeÂ innocence and righteousness of the Jewish people (60:14-16). Great prosperity will prevail (60:17). Human nature will change. There will be no more violence (60:18). ThroughÂ being righteous Israel shall merit to be blessed (60:21). If you are meritorious the Messianic Age will come sooner. At all events there is a time-limit, Â after which the End Times will come at all events (60:22).
The verse (Isaiah 60:8) we are dealing with said:
Â [Isaiah 60:8] WHO ARE THESE THAT FLY AS A CLOUD, AND AS THE DOVES TO THEIR WINDOWS"
They shall fly on the clouds in Aeroplanes.Â When was it possible for this prophecy to have been literally fulfilled before our times?
The Talmud (Baba Batra 75;b) says:
## When Israel sins somewhat, they are brought down like a fowl [flying away], as it says, "AS FOR EPHRAIM, THEIR GLORY SHALL FLY AWAY LIKE A BIRD" [Hosea 9:11]. When they gain merit, they are elevated like a cloud, as it says,Â "WHO ARE THESE THAT FLY AS A CLOUD" [Isaiah 60:8].##
So we see that in at least one place the Talmud speaks ofÂ the above verse in Isaiah (60:8) in connection to Ephraim meaning to the Lost Ten Tribes.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â

[Isaiah 60:9] SURELY THE ISLES SHALL WAIT FOR ME, AND THE SHIPS OF TARSHISH FIRST, TO BRING THY SONS FROM FAR, THEIR SILVER AND THEIR GOLD WITH THEM, UNTO THE NAME OF THE LORD THY GOD, AND TO THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL, BECAUSE HE HATH GLORIFIED THEE.
"THE SHIPS OF TARSHISH FIRST": Ships that plough the Atlantic Ocean bringing people back from America, Britain, and Western Europe.
