Because of the great sin of Solomon G-d divided the kingdom into two parts. The Northern Kingdom was made up of ten tribes known as The House of Joseph, The House of Ephraim and The House of Israel. The Southern Kingdom was known as The House of Judah. 

The Northern Kingdom sinned greatly against G-d and changed the Festivals and Laws so the people would not go back to Jerusalem. G-d scattered the Northern Kingdom to the four corners of the earth because of these sins. G-d said that they would not be known by the tongue they spoke or the color of their skin. However, He said in the last days He would once again gather these Lost Tribes and bring them back into Israel.


In Genesis 48:19 Jacob blessed Ephraim and said he would become the fullness of the gentiles. This is the correct interpretation of this verse; if you go back into the Hebrew text you will find this to be the truth.


In Isaiah 8:14 “And he shall be for a sanctuary; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.”


We all understand that Judah, the Southern Kingdom stumbled in seeing Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah. However, few realize that the other House was the Northern Kingdom. They stumbled over being able to see that the Holy Covenant was still in place.


These people of the Northern Kingdom had become the fullness of the gentiles not knowing that they were the Lost Tribes. When Yeshua (Jesus) came to this earth, the Northern Kingdom was drawn to the Messiah. The Southern Kingdom was blinded by G-d that they could not see Him as Messiah, but they kept the Law. Thus, both the kingdoms stumbled.

In Hosea 7:8 “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned.” He is saying Ephraim has the Messiah but not the Law.


Hosea 8:11-12 “Because Ephraim hath made many altars to sin, altars shall be unto him to sin. I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing.”


Most of the Church today is the Northern Kingdom and they do not know it. G-d is now beginning to gather them together to one day bring them back into the nation of Israel, the land G-d gave to our forefathers.


The Shofar has been sounded and the eyes of Ephraim are beginning to be opened. G-d is fulfilling His promise to bring them back into the land that has always been theirs.


Many ask me how can they know if they are truly from one of these Lost Tribes. If your heart leaps with joy as it did the day you received the Messiah as your Savior, then you are one of the Lost Tribes.


An angel appeared to me some twenty years ago and told me to blow the Shofar horn and scream for Ephraim to come home. He appeared to me again in the year 2006 to commission me to begin gathering the Lost Tribes and prepare them to go back to the land of Israel. I am traveling all over North America calling out for Ephraim and finding them everywhere I travel.
