Here is a list of a must have “cheat sheet” or cliff notes if you prefer for the the parabolic way the prophets speak to the Two Houses. These become “keys” to decipher with wisdom and understanding the embedded Sod level meaning to scriptures. Remember within the Sod and Sod ha Torah is the hidden intel of the King (known in Hebrew as the secret council of Adonai) as he wages war on behalf of his seed to bring MANY SONS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS.
A true prophet who gets whole books devoted to his oral DAAT knowledge must know the plan of salvation on levels mere mortals can only fanaticize about. Babies drink milk, the mature can eat the meat.
Here are 11 instances the Torah records for all posterity, all future generations. These prophecies all agree about the beginning, journey and fate of the Sons of All Israel. Known as the Firstborn Sons of Yah.
Each section should be read in context, prayerfully, meditatively with a pure heart. No agenda’s. No position to defend. Let truth be truth and if there are “liars” let them be ashamed.
I will start with a New Testament book. But those with understanding know there was nothing “Christian” about the life, practice or theology of John. In my opinion he is an Essene, a “keeper of the secrets”. One deeply initiated into the mysteries…the deep things of Elohim. Knowing “the times and seasons” Israel found themselves in. A prophet needs to dig deep into the “wellsprings” of Elohim, the highest Sefirotic realm, beyond space and time. This is the mind of Elohim.
In the whole of John in chapter 10 verses 1-42 the writer refers to the plan of restoration quite succulently . In John 10:14 Yashua says “I am the good shepherd. I know My sheep and My sheep know Me, 15 just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them in as well, and they will listen to My voice. Then there will be ONE flock and ONE shepherd. ” Total Restoration.
In Isaiah 8:14 we learn that BOTH Houses, Israel and Judah will stumble and fall because of the Mashiach of Israel.
“He will be a place of safety for you. But he will be a rock that makes people trip and a stumbling block for BOTH Kingdoms of Israel. He will be a trap and a snare for those who live in Jerusalem.”
To the Elect, the remnant, the faithful believers as Isaiah 8:8 states:
“The LORD of Hosts is the One you shall regard as Holy.” If you do not fear or obey YHVH you will “stumble; they will fall and be crushed. They will be caught in a trap.” This is akin to “blind men walking”.Isaiah 8:8
In lieu of this Hashem promises in Jeramiah 31:31 that He will make a “new” covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. This covenant:
“…. which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the LORD, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”Jeramiah 31:31
Here we have a people who obey Yahweh from the Heart….they have overcome the evil inclination. They have chosen “wisely” and as good sons are submitted to the will and sovereign kingdom rule of their Father, The High King of Israel. They are not troublesome sons, like Absalom who decided to take the Kingship upon himself, causing such grief in the kingdom, among his Father and brothers. To make note David, the archetypal Messiah of David who will deliver All Israel and usher in a righteous rule and reign from one end of heaven to another was sovereign over a united 12 tribe kingdom.
Read Ezekiel 35:10 “These “TWO nations” are spoken of. Context is a prophecy against Mt. Seir the capitol of Edom, land historically from the descendants of Esau. The Edomites harbor an ancient hatred, still at large in the world today. It is over the birthright/blessing of the sons of Isaac. How did the Rights of the Firstborn really come down. Praise Yah we are told that when this Mashiach comes he will settle disputes between the nations.
“Two Chosen Families” is the translation of Jer 33:24. “Have you not observed what this people have spoken, saying, ‘The two families which the LORD chose, He has rejected them’?” 3 times in this chapter Jerimiah “Have you not observed what this people have spoken, saying, ‘The two families which the LORD chose, He has rejected them’?. In this chapter Jeremiah clearly speaks into the destinies of these 2 Houses saying “7’I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first.” Total Restoration. Three times in this one chapter the prophet is kingdom specific. Both kingdoms, families, houses, however you look at it have a shared future together.
Ezekiel gives one of the most raw, graphically charged, in your face words for these “TWO SISTERS”. Adulterous, backslidden, “prostituting themselves from their youth” Ezk 23:1-4 is an adult themed, R rated rebuke. A true music rappers pistol firing raw language leaves nothing to the imagination. Nothing you teach the kindergartners in the room.
“Two Olive Branches” are seen by Zachariah in chpt 4:1-4. Each being fed from the one Menorah in the middle. This 7 branched candlestick is a “pictograph” of the Tree of Life and in particular Zeir Anpin or the “7 Spirits” of Yah. These two trees or branches are two witnesses in all the earth. Both suck from the same Torah of Life. Important to not is that one is a “wild” branch and one is a “cultivated” vine. Not hard to figure out who is who. A tree becomes wild when it is removed from its native habitat. This is Ephraim, representing the Northern Kingdom. Removed from the land and its seed/offspring scattered among the nations. The word foreign in Hebrew is Nokri a word used today for Gentile. If you are reading a New Testament notice Paul clearly calls these new believers from the nations he is preaching to “a wild olive shoot” getting grafted back into the “natural olive tree”.
Most famous but going over the head of 95% of the “Christians” in the world today in the “Two Sticks” prophecy of Ezekiel 37. Here is some of the clearest language of the Two House understanding (Ezk 37:16). To not see the clear references is to condem both houses of spiritual blindness which the Ruach Ha Kodesh is screaming from the housetops looking for any one in the “streets” who will stop, see and listen. How aptly the true the elect remnant on both sides is spoken of as a select few. No ambiguity, the parables are explained in the verses, the keys given. The ending goal is the same “one king will be king for all of them; and they will no longer be two nations and no longer be divided into two kingdoms. This is the fallen tabernacle of David being built in our day.
Back to the the New Testament, Revelation 11 uses the established Jewish/Hebrew understanding and speaks again of two witnesses, 2 lampstands, 2 olive trees between one Menorah. All this shows John was a revelator of the mysteries using the keys correctly from his Essene/Jewish scribal writings. He was not confused, we are.
Book of HEBREWS, notice who it is addressed to will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. In this book from a totally Hebraic point of view the 2 houses are seen, two plans of salvation tailor fitted to the situation of both houses. But we have a clear reference to the “two advents” of Maschiach. Heb 3:5-6 the writer states this, showing their different escholotigical salvations look. “Now Moses was faithful in all HIS HOUSE as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; 6 but Christ was faithful as a SON OVER HIS HOUSE—whose house we are, if we hold fast our confidence and the boast of our hope firm until the end. Here is Messiah ben Joseph offering renewed covenant and final restoration to the lost scattered sheep. Heb 9:28 gives the end of the whole matter by stating “Christ was offered once for all time as a sacrifice to take away the sins of many people. HEWILL COME AGAIN, not to deal with our sins, but to bring salvation to all who are EAGERLY WAITING for him. Here is the faithful remnant ralling under the banner, the ensign of YHVH raised clearly in all the nations.
The “time of the gentiles” is OVER. Like the “Two Cherubim” stretched out over the Ark of the Covenant this is where Yahweh says he will meet with us. And tabernacle among us, in an eternal relationship that will never again be “torn asunder.”
Praise Hashem who has arranged for us such a great, grand and complete restoration.
Exodus 25:18-25 sum up the prophecies, the sum total that brings us to end of our sojourn. “There I will meet with you; and from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim which are upon the ark of the testimony, I will speak to you about all that I will give you in commandment for the SONS of ISRAEL. Praise HaShem it is founded on the MERCY seat!!
