27And יהוה shall scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few in number among the nations, where יהוה shall lead you away. 28And there you shall serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 29But from there you will seek יהוה your Elohim; and you shall find Him, if you search after Him with all your heart and with all your soul. 30In your distress, when all these things are come upon you, in the Akharit HaYamim, you will return to יהוה your Elohim, and hearken unto His voice; 31for יהוה your Elohim is a merciful God; He will not fail you, neither destroy you, nor forget the Brit of your fathers which He swore unto them.
There is so much information in this small passage, and most modern ‘preachers’ overlook it, especially in the Messianic and Jewish communities.
This is in D’varim [Deuteronomy] 4, and Moshe is here retelling the history of Yisra’el since the wilderness, getting the next generation ready to go in and possess the land. In the middle of his speech, he prophesies to the sons of Yisra’el, predicting their misbehavior, idolatry, and turning away from יהוה and His Truth. They did just that, and all the Nevi’im could see it coming, and were sent to warn them, including Yokhanan HaMatbil, who said, “10Behold, the axe is already placed at the root of the trees; therefore, every tree which does not bear good fruits shall be cut down and cast in the fire. 11I am just immersing you with water for repentance; but He who is coming after me is greater than I, the one even whose shoes I am not worthy to remove; He will immerse you with The Ru’akh HaKodesh [The Holy Spirit], and with fire, 12whose shovel is in His hand, and He purifies His threshings; the wheat He gathers into His barns, and the straw He burns up in the unquenchable fire.”” He was, of course, speaking to Yisra’el at the end of the “Two Days for Yisra’el”, the beginning of the “Two Days for Messiah”, our last 2,000 years. But, Yisra’el did not, ever, ‘hear’ the warnings. They killed all the Nevi’im, including Yokhanan, and they even killed the very Son of God.
They did that even after having been diminished by ten tribes. The promised remnant returned to Yehudah [2 Chron 30], and Yokhanan warns all twelve tribes, now called “Jews”, of the coming culling away and the beginning of the Messianic Kingdom, a spiritual kingdom first, and then a physical one. Since the majority of Yisra’el did not listen, however, they were indeed FINALLY scattered to the four winds, the remnant of ALL TWELVE TRIBES, in 150 A.D., fulfilling Moshe’s prophecy. Moshe said that in the “Akharit HaYamim”, the LAST DAYS, they would return, ” וְשַׁבְתָּ ” ‘do Teshuvah’, REPENT! And it looks a lot like “Shabbat”, just fyi. The verse starts this way, “In your TRIBULATION [distress], when all ‘these words/things’ are found by you, THEN you will REPENT. This is concerning ALL TWELVE TRIBES, who are now SMALL IN NUMBER! יהוה was speaking to ALL TWELVE TRIBES, and ALL of them will be SMALL in number, like our Jewish people today. But certain liars have gone into the world and beguiled people into thinking they are the ‘ten northern tribes’, a ‘multitude among the nations’, and that THEY are Yisra’el. That is one of the greatest LIES that HaSatan has told in these last days. They put stock in their FLESH. The doctrine plays to their petty, fleshly desire to ‘be’ something more than SAVED by Elohim in spite of their sin. They think they ‘deserve’ salvation because of their DNA. It is a sickness.
To our Jewish people: the ‘distress’, the ‘tribulation’ long predicted, the “Time of Jacob’s Trouble”, is almost upon you. Repent, NOW, or do so during the worst times the world has ever seen. Which has NOT started as yet.
