The Predicted Role of the Ten Tribes
Separate from Judah:
The Lost Ten Tribes will not be part of Judah. Only in the Last days just before or during the Messianic Era will Judah and Joseph re-unite. Until that time they will be separate.
The Lost Ten Tribes must therefore be sought for amongst an entity that is not part of Judah and not recognized by Judah. In the End Times recognition will come but it will not be easy.
Judah has prejudices and historical hang-ups to overcome and so does Joseph. A lot of dislike of Judah and wrong thoughts concerning Judah are still to be found amongst Joseph.Â I deal with people from Joseph everyday and I meet every extreme. On the whole these experiences serve to strengthen our conviction of Brit-Am truth though at the same time quite a few exceptions are encountered.
In the census figures of Ezra and Nechamia none of the Ten Tribes are mentioned but only people from Judah, Benjamin, and Levi.
All of the Prophets spoke of the Ten Tribes remaining separate and lost until the End Times. Nachmanides spoke of these issues in the Book of Redemption, extracts from which were quoted in our article on Nachmanides and the Ten Tribes.
Ezekiel 37 speaks of the re-union of Judah and Joseph in the end times. Isaiah (11:11) spoke of the future re-union of Joseph and Judah. Isaiah in this passage implies that not only will the true halves have been separate until the end times but also a certain amount of antagonism may have existed between them on occasion.Â
[Isaiah 11:12] Â "AND HE SHALL SET UP AN ENSIGN FOR THE NATIONS, AND SHALL ASSEMBLE THE OUTCASTS OF ISRAEL, AND GATHER TOGETHER THE DISPERSED OF JUDAH FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH "
[Isaiah 11:13] "THE ENVY ALSO OF EPHRAIM SHALL DEPART, AND THE ADVERSARIES OF JUDAH SHALL BE CUT OFF: EPHRAIM SHALL NOT ENVY JUDAH, AND JUDAH SHALL NOT VEX EPHRAIM "
Each side will not envy or vex the other AFTER the re-union. This implies that before the re-union there were occasions when elements amongst one side or the other were antagonistic to their brothers.
# Concerning whom did Isaiah pronounce this prophecy. He was speaking only concerning Judah and Joseph. Said Rabbi Shmuel son of Nachman in the name of Rabbi Yonathan, when Joseph and Judah were arguing the Holy Angels said to each other, Let us go down and see what is happening. Usually when a bull and a lion confront each other the bull retreats before the lion. In this case a bull (Joseph) and a lion (Judah) are arguing and there is a standoff. Jealousy will continue to abide between these two untilt he Messiah comes, as it says:
"THE ENVY ALSO OF EPHRAIM SHALL DEPART, AND THE ADVERSARIES OF JUDAH SHALL BE CUT OFF: EPHRAIM SHALL NOT ENVY JUDAH, AND JUDAH SHALL NOT VEX EPHRAIM." (Tanchuma, VaYigash, 4).
# In the past Jeroboam the son of Nebat who was from Ephraim hated KingÂ Rehoboam who was from Judah. There was a controversy between them. In theÂ future there will be peace between these two anointed leaders. They willÂ not be jealous of each other. Concerning them, it says:Â
"THE ENVY ALSO OFÂ EPHRAIM SHALL DEPART, AND THE ADVERSARIES OF JUDAH SHALL BE CUT OFF: EPHRAIM SHALL NOT ENVY JUDAH, AND JUDAH SHALL NOT VEX EPHRAIM ."Â Everywhere you find these two tribes (Judah and Joseph) hating each other andÂ antagonistic to each other, etc. May we infer from this that even the future Anointed Captain of War who will arise from Joseph and the Annoited Messiah who will arise from Judah will (Heaven forbid) be jealous of each other? No. There will be no antagonism between them, as it says:
"THE ENVY ALSO OF EPHRAIM SHALL DEPART, AND THE ADVERSARIES OF JUDAH SHALL BE CUT OFF: EPHRAIM SHALL NOT ENVY JUDAH, AND JUDAH SHALL NOT VEX EPHRAIM" Â (Agadat Brayshit 63).
