The Identity of the Ten Tribes was to Remain Unknown to Themselves and Judah Until the End Times
Not Known to Judah
Â [Isaiah 28:11]
FOR WITH STAMMERING LIPS AND ANOTHER TONGUE WILL HE SPEAK TO THIS PEOPLE.
<<ANOTHER TONGUE>>: Most Israelites will not know Hebrew at that time. Â
IsaiahÂ 49:21 speaks of the Jewish reaction when the Lost Tribes will return. Many Jews will be astounded and even perhaps slightly resentful since they will feel that Joseph at times of trouble could have been more positive.
ISAIAH AND THE RETURN OF THE LOST TEN TRIBES
The Lost Ten Tribes willÂ return. The Jews of Judah will meet the return of the Lost Ten Tribes with mixed reactions:Â [Isaiah 49:21]
"THEN SHALT THOU SAY IN THINE HEART, WHO HATH BEGOTTEN ME THESE, SEEING I HAVE LOST MY CHILDREN, AND AM DESOLATE, A CAPTIVE, AND REMOVING TO AND FRO? AND WHO HATH BROUGHT UP THESE? BEHOLD, I WAS LEFT ALONE; THESE, WHERE HAD THEY BEEN?"
