There is so much Scripture that is completely misunderstood and ignored even by the most learned people in Christianity, myself especially. And there are many examples to share that show how it is completely impossible to understand the “new testament” without a much more complete understanding of the “old testament”, which I did not always have. One of the newest Truths I am beginning to understand is the relationship between Revelation and several pieces of information from the front of the book. The 24 elders in Revelation are a good place to start.
Who are these 24 Elders in Revelation? Can your pastor tell you who they are? Not if he doesn’t study the front of the Book. The answer can be found amongst other places in 1 Chronicles 23-27.
One might begin to see another 2 houses: priests and Levites- “one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and one taken for Ithamar.” David had a military of 288,000, and a choir of 288 (2×144,000 and 2×144)
1Ch 27:1 ¶ Now the children of Israel after their number, to wit, the chief fathers and captains of thousands and hundreds, and their officers that served the king in any matter of the courses, which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year, of every course were twenty and four thousand.
So, The restoration of the 10 lost tribes of Israel and Judah in the “North Country” will then lead to the establishment of the Kingdom of the House of David before the tribulation.
The old and new testament scriptures make clear that David’s fallen tabernacle / Sukkah will be raised. This refers to the Davidic Kingdom that initially will have one of his descendants reigning over a united Israel and Judah. Israel appoints one head in Jezreel valley, Hos 1:11.
The Lord must thus raise up the Davidic monarchy amongst the Jews. This will be relatively easy as a Sukkah is much easier to put back together than a house. There must be reconciliation with the lost tribes to enable this because the reason the two houses separated is related to baseless hatred that destroyed the last temple.
According to my current understanding of Scripture, a limited outpouring of the HS will precede WW3 & a sort of exodus from USA. The lost tribes will move to the North Country at some point after this. They are not there now. (In order for the 10 Lost tribes of the House of Israel to leave the North Country, they must first be there.) The scriptures do not tell us how they get to the North Country. From there we will join with the House of Judah (Jews) and return to the mountains (‘west bank’) of the land of Israel. Once both Houses of Israel are joined in the land of Israel, the temple will be in operation along with the Cohanim. The house of David will be reigning during a pre-millennial Messianic Era preceding the tribulation. (David’s fallen tabernacle is restored).
A great deal of destruction is coming to the world after the Pentecostal Harvest. Despite the world wars and destruction, the Father is very much in the construction and healing business. A remnant shall be saved. The Father will restore Israel & Judah, step by step including the Kingdom of the House of David and perhaps David himself. There is actually great reward for staying true to Him here and now.
Ho 1:4 And the LORD said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the house of Israel. And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel.
Also notice, Jezreel, Yizra`e’l, Yisra’el … very similar.
