ZECHARIAH (NKJV) 1:
13 AND THE LORD ANSWERED THE ANGEL WHO TALKED TO ME, WITH GOOD AND COMFORTING WORDS. 14 SO THE ANGEL WHO SPOKE WITH ME SAID TO ME,
'PROCLAIM, SAYING, "THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS:
I AM ZEALOUS FOR JERUSALEM
AND FOR ZION WITH GREAT ZEAL.
15 I AM EXCEEDINGLY ANGRY WITH THE NATIONS AT EASE;
FOR I WAS A LITTLE ANGRY,
AND THEY HELPED BUT WITH EVIL INTENT.
ZECHARIAH (NKJV) 8:
13 AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS
THAT JUST AS YOU WERE A CURSE AMONG THE NATIONS,
O HOUSE OF JUDAH AND HOUSE OF ISRAEL,
SO I WILL SAVE YOU, AND YOU SHALL BE A BLESSING.
DO NOT FEAR,
LET YOUR HANDS BE STRONG.
14 FOR THUS SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS:
'JUST AS I DETERMINED TO PUNISH YOU
WHEN YOUR FATHERS PROVOKED ME TO WRATH,'
SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS,
'AND I WOULD NOT RELENT,
15 SO AGAIN IN THESE DAYS
I AM DETERMINED TO DO GOOD
TO JERUSALEM AND TO THE HOUSE OF JUDAH.
DO NOT FEAR.
ISAIAH (NKJV) 42:
22 BUT THIS IS A PEOPLE ROBBED AND PLUNDERED;
ALL OF THEM ARE SNARED IN HOLES,
AND THEY ARE HIDDEN IN PRISON HOUSES;
THEY ARE FOR PREY, AND NO ONE DELIVERS;
FOR PLUNDER, AND NO ONE SAYS, 'RESTORE!'
23 WHO AMONG YOU WILL GIVE EAR TO THIS?
WHO WILL LISTEN AND HEAR FOR THE TIME TO COME?
24 WHO GAVE JACOB FOR PLUNDER, AND ISRAEL TO THE ROBBERS?
WAS IT NOT THE LORD,
HE AGAINST WHOM WE HAVE SINNED?
FOR THEY WOULD NOT WALK IN HIS WAYS,
NOR WERE THEY OBEDIENT TO HIS LAW.
25 THEREFORE HE HAS POURED ON HIM THE FURY OF HIS ANGER
AND THE STRENGTH OF BATTLE;
IT HAS SET HIM ON FIRE ALL AROUND,
YET HE DID NOT KNOW;
AND IT BURNED HIM,
YET HE DID NOT TAKE IT TO HEART.
Isaiah chapter 49 has a message for both Judah and the Lost Tribes.
Words of consolation are spoken to Judah in the End Times. From these words however we understand how up until then Judah frequently suffered:
Isaiah (NKJV) 49:
14 But Zion said, 'The LORD has forsaken me,
And my lord has forgotten me.'
17 Your [sons shall make haste;
Your destroyers and those who laid you waste
Shall go away from you....
19 'For your waste and desolate places,
And the land of your destruction,
Will even now be too small for the inhabitants;
And those who swallowed you up will be far away.
20 The children you will have,
After you have lost the others,
Will say again in your ears,
'The place is too small for me;
Give me a place where I may dwell.'
21 Then you will say in your heart,
'Who has begotten these for me,
Since I have lost my children and am desolate,
A captive, and wandering to and fro?
And who has brought these up?
There I was, left alone;
But these, where were they?...
26 I will feed those who oppress you with their own flesh,
And they shall be drunk with their own blood as with sweet wine.
All flesh shall know
That I, the LORD, am your Savior,
And your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.
Isaiah (NKJV) 53:
2 For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant,
And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or [b]comeliness;
And when we see Him,
There is no beauty that we should desire Him.
3 He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
4 Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one, to his own way;
And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He opened not His mouth;
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter,
And as a sheep before its shearers is silent,
So He opened not His mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment,
And who will declare His generation?
For He was cut off from the land of the living;
For the transgressions of My people He was stricken.
9 And they made His grave with the wicked,
But with the rich at His death,
Because He had done no violence,
Nor was any deceit in His mouth.
10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him;
He has put Him to grief.
When You make His soul an offering for sin,
He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days,
And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.
11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied.
By His knowledge My righteous Servant shall justify many,
For He shall bear their iniquities.
12 Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great,
And He shall divide the spoil with the strong,
Because He poured out His soul unto death,
And He was numbered with the transgressors,
And He bore the sin of many,
And made intercession for the transgressors.
Psalms (NKJV) 44:
22 Yet for Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
23 Awake! Why do You sleep, O LORD?
Arise! Do not cast us off forever.
24 Why do You hide Your face,
And forget our affliction and our oppression?
25 For our soul is bowed down to the dust;
Our body clings to the ground.
26 Arise for our help,
And redeem us for Your mercies' sake.
Ezekiel (NKJV) 37:
15 AGAIN THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME TO ME, SAYING, 16 'AS FOR YOU, SON OF MAN, TAKE A STICK FOR YOURSELF AND WRITE ON IT: 'FOR JUDAH AND FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, HIS COMPANIONS.' THEN TAKE ANOTHER STICK AND WRITE ON IT, 'FOR JOSEPH, THE STICK OF EPHRAIM, AND FOR ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, HIS COMPANIONS.' 17 THEN JOIN THEM ONE TO ANOTHER FOR YOURSELF INTO ONE STICK, AND THEY WILL BECOME ONE IN YOUR HAND.
18 AND WHEN THE CHILDREN OF YOUR PEOPLE SPEAK TO YOU, SAYING, 'WILL YOU NOT SHOW US WHAT YOU MEAN BY THESE?' 19 SAY TO THEM, "THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD: SURELY I WILL TAKE THE STICK OF JOSEPH, WHICH IS IN THE HAND OF EPHRAIM, AND THE TRIBES OF ISRAEL, HIS COMPANIONS; AND I WILL JOIN THEM WITH IT, WITH THE STICK OF JUDAH, AND MAKE THEM ONE STICK, AND THEY WILL BE ONE IN MY HAND." 20 AND THE STICKS ON WHICH YOU WRITE WILL BE IN YOUR HAND BEFORE THEIR EYES.
21 THEN SAY TO THEM, "THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD: SURELY I WILL TAKE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FROM AMONG THE NATIONS, WHEREVER THEY HAVE GONE, AND WILL GATHER THEM FROM EVERY SIDE AND BRING THEM INTO THEIR OWN LAND; 22 AND I WILL MAKE THEM ONE NATION IN THE LAND, ON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL; AND ONE KING SHALL BE KING OVER THEM ALL; THEY SHALL NO LONGER BE TWO NATIONS, NOR SHALL THEY EVER BE DIVIDED INTO TWO KINGDOMS AGAIN. 23 THEY SHALL NOT DEFILE THEMSELVES ANYMORE WITH THEIR IDOLS, NOR WITH THEIR DETESTABLE THINGS, NOR WITH ANY OF THEIR TRANSGRESSIONS; BUT I WILL DELIVER THEM FROM ALL THEIR DWELLING PLACES IN WHICH THEY HAVE SINNED, AND WILL CLEANSE THEM. THEN THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE, AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD.
24 DAVID MY SERVANT SHALL BE KING OVER THEM, AND THEY SHALL ALL HAVE ONE SHEPHERD; THEY SHALL ALSO WALK IN MY JUDGMENTS AND OBSERVE MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM. 25 THEN THEY SHALL DWELL IN THE LAND THAT I HAVE GIVEN TO JACOB MY SERVANT, WHERE YOUR FATHERS DWELT; AND THEY SHALL DWELL THERE, THEY, THEIR CHILDREN, AND THEIR CHILDREN'S CHILDREN, FOREVER; AND MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOREVER. 26 MOREOVER I WILL MAKE A COVENANT OF PEACE WITH THEM, AND IT SHALL BE AN EVERLASTING COVENANT WITH THEM; I WILL ESTABLISH THEM AND MULTIPLY THEM, AND I WILL SET MY SANCTUARY IN THEIR MIDST FOREVERMORE. 27 MY TABERNACLE ALSO SHALL BE WITH THEM; INDEED I WILL BE THEIR GOD, AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE. 28 THE NATIONS ALSO WILL KNOW THAT I, THE LORD, SANCTIFY ISRAEL, WHEN MY SANCTUARY IS IN THEIR MIDST FOREVERMORE.'
