The Ten Tribes of Israel and Christianity (23 September, 2014 , 28 Elul, 5774)
Recently we had two articles by our frend Eddie Chumney (and more may be on the way):
Ephraimite Clarification by Eddie Chumney
Ephraimites: A History by Edward Chumney
Eddie presented an Ephraimite Christian perspective.
These articles were followed by Replies by Yair Davidiy and by an article by Alexander Zephyr.
TT End Times. The Ten Tribes of Israel as 'being Christian' by Alexander Zephyr
Alexander Zephyr presented a straightforward Jewish literal Biblical perspective.
In order to avoid tension and get on with our researches and propagate knowledge about the Location of the Ten Tribes amongst Western Peoples we thought it worthwhile to clarify our own understanding on this matter.
We are involved with Researching where the Ten Tribes are; Revealing the results of this research; Reconciliation between Judah and Joseph as a preparation for Ultimate Re-Union in the End Times as predicted in Ezekiel ch.37. We usually try to avoid theological discussion or religious disputations on our forums.
Yair understands that it is FORBIDDEN for a Jew to believe in Christianity. BUT Christianity may be a tool of Divine Providence to spread Biblical Knowledge and to bring the Ten Tribes back. It may be that ultimately the Ten Tribes will undergo some process of renewing the Covenant that are parallel to conversion. [The fact is that the best converts to Judaism are former religious Christians.] This however is NOT FOR THE PRESENT.
Neither Judah nor Joseph are ready for this. Our organization Brit-Am/Hebrew nations is not built for it. Yair is not interested in it.
We can leave it for the future Messianic Age or a time just before it. It is not necessarily for the present.
For the time being we have something at hand THAT CAN BE DONE!
We have been criticized for not offering practical conclusions to our beliefs but this is as practical as it gets! This is something that should and can be done.
We can leave our religious differences to one side for the time being and get on with a more complete clarification of Israelite descent and publicizing the results.
Anything else at the present times is a red herring. An unwelcome distraction. Let us prove Israelite Descent first of all. Other questions may be dealt with later.
