The Lost Ten Tribes in the West
The Lost Ten Tribes were Exiled.
They will return.
One of the main areas from which the Ten Tribes will return is from the west of the Land of Israel.
The Prophet Hosea (ch.11) speaks of Ephraim in the End Times as being found primarily in the West.
The whole chapter of Hosea 11 is worth quoting in this context.
When Israel was young God brought them out of Egypt. They then went to worship Baal and the idols. Ephraim had been brought up by God but was ungrateful. It is prophesied that Ephraim (i.e. the Land of Northern Israel , of the Ten Tribes) will be punished and sent into Exile. They will be delivered to Assyria and Egypt.
As well as being taken away by the Assyrians, a good section of the Ten Tribers also apparently passed through the hands of Egypt.
They will not however be altogether destroyed.
In the end times they will return from their places of Exile.
Ephraim will come back from the West.
Judah will have remained faithful all along but Ephraim will not have.
1 When Israel was a child, I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called my son.
2 The more I called them,
the more they went from me;
they kept sacrificing to the Baals,
and offering incense to idols.
3 Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk,
I took them up in my arms;
but they did not know that I healed them.
4 I led them with cords of human kindness,
with bands of love.
I was to them like those
who lift infants to their cheeks.
I bent down to them and fed them.
5 They shall return to the land of Egypt,
and Assyria shall be their king,
because they have refused to return to me.
6 The sword rages in their cities,
it consumes their oracle-priests,
and devours because of their schemes.
7 My people are bent on turning away from me.
To the Most High they call,
but he does not raise them up at all.
8 How can I give you up, Ephraim?
How can I hand you over, O Israel?
How can I make you like Admah?
How can I treat you like Zeboiim?
My heart recoils within me;
my compassion grows warm and tender.
9 I will not execute my fierce anger;
I will not again destroy Ephraim;
for I am God and no mortal,
the Holy One in your midst,
and I will not come in wrath.
10 They shall go after the Lord,
who roars like a lion;
when he roars,
his children shall come trembling from the west.
11 They shall come trembling like birds from Egypt,
and like doves from the land of Assyria;
and I will return them to their homes, says the Lord.
12 Ephraim has surrounded me with lies,
and the house of Israel with deceit;
but Judah still walks with God,
and is faithful to the Holy One.
Let us look at a few of these verses more closely in the light of Rabbinical Commentary:
9 I will not execute my fierce anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and no mortal, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath.
God will not destroy Ephraim but neither will HE enter (cause HIS presence to be felt) into any other city apart from Jerusalem (Saadia, Iben Ezra).
The Exiles in the West shall be gathered together to return (Targum Yehonatan).
Like a bird from the west (Egypt) and like a dove from the North (Assyria) the Exiles will return.
The Midrash (Shir HaShirim Rabah 1:63) confirms that this prophecy is referring tot he Lost Ten Tribes.
Isaiah 60:8-9 also described the Israelites as returning like clouds and as doves flying home, coming also in the ships of Tarshish meaning from the Atlantic Ocean area.
Isaiah 11:11 also speaks of the Israelites returning from their places of exiles. One of the places mentioned is from the Isles of the Sea. This means from Islands of the West i.e. the British Isles and neighboring regions.
14 They lift up their voices, they sing for joy;
they shout from the west over the majesty of the Lord.
The Aramaic Translation and the Classical Commentators say this means the exiles will be in the west in the last Days.
Then it goes on to speak of Britain.
15 Therefore in the Lights of Fires [Hebrew: Ba-Urim] give glory to the Lord;
in the Isles of the Sea glorify the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
Isles of the Sea are Isles of the West. These are the British Isles. In Ancient Times Britain was known to seafarers for the lights blazing on its hillsides.
FIRES IN THE ISLES
In addition the Ten Tribes will return in Ships of Tarshish meaning from the Atlantic Ocean area as we mentioned. This is to the west of Israel.
It was also prophesied that the Ten Tribes would be in Tserefat (Obadiah 1:20) meaning France and Britain and the neighboring regions.
This area is also to the west of Israel.

The Prophet Hosea speaks of Ephraim in the End Times as being found primarily in the West.
The Exiles in the West will gather together to return (Hosea 11:1)
One of the places Isaiah lists as those were the Ten Tribes were taken to is the Isles of the Sea meaning in Hebrew those of the West (Isaiah 11:11).
Isaiah speaks of the Exiles of Israel being located in the West (Isaiah 24:14) and in the Isles of the Sea (Isaiah 24:15).
12 Lo, these shall come from far away,
and lo, these from the north and from the west,
and these from the land of Sinim.
Isaiah is here speaking of the Ten Tribes returning from the north and west of the Land of Israel and from the Land of Sinim meaning Australia and New Zealand.
IN THE NORTH WEST
Land of Sinim. The Lost Ten Tribes and Australia
Ephraim will be in the West
Beyond the Straits of Gibraltar.
The Almighty knows best.
To Jerusalem's Holy Altar -
Shall Israel bring an offering.
The US and Britain are Joes
Says the Brit-Am Proffering
Defeating all the pagan foes
Healing many universal woes.
This is reality plain and clear
Hebraic vitality, no bane nor fear
Prophetic words for all to hear
As seen in records archival
Spoken out in the Hebrew Bible
Brit-Am has no near rival.
Help maintain Brit-Am survival.
For the sake of family and kin
Send Brit-Am a handsome giving
That we may hold out and win
More Space in Land of the Living.
The Lost Ten Tribes in the End Time will be mainly situated to the west of the Land of Israel.
