Lost Tribes of the House of Israel


The ancient kingdom of Israel was divided into two separate nations after the time of King Solomon, and the Bible tells us that not only was this in God's plan and purpose, but the two nations were given separate future prophecies to be fulfilled in the last days. In fact, each of the twelve individual tribes were given differing prophecies as well, according to both Genesis 49 and Deuteronomy 33. Here is an introduction to this subject.

Who are the lost ten tribes and why were they lost?

Well, after the time of King Solomon the nation of Israel was divided into two parts: Ten tribes in the North became called the House of Israel. The prophets also refer to them as “Ephraim” after their leading tribe, and called them “Joseph” after their patriarch. They called them also by the term “all Israel.” You might think that the term “all Israel” refers to all twelve tribes, but it doesn’t! Scholars know, and you can tell from the Biblical context, that “all Israel” refers to all ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of the House of Israel. In the South was the two tribe Kingdom of Judah. The Kingdom or House of Judah, comprising the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, went into Babylonian captivity for 70 years and returned to Palestine—and from whom our Messiah Jesus Christ is descended; but the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom, the House of Israel, Ephraim, Joseph, or “all Israel” as they are called, went into Assyrian captivity a century earlier and did not return. Where did they go? Scholars refer to them as the lost ten tribes of the House of Israel, and this website deals with Bible prophecy concerning them.

We know that there were individual prophecies given to each of the twelve tribes. For example, Genesis Chapter 49 and Deuteronomy chapter 33 outline the individual prophecies which each tribe would fulfill. We are told in Genesis 49, verse one, (Jacob says) that these prophecies would be fulfilled in the latter days; in other words, the time in which are now living. How are they fulfilled? Bible prophecy told us in Genesis 35:11 that the individual tribes of Israel would become “a company of nations”—in other words, each tribe would become a nation. We are told in Genesis 17, verse five, that they would be “many nations”—they would each individually be a nation, and the twelve tribes themselves would therefore be not just one kingdom but twelve nations—“a company of nations.”

Who are these nations in the world today and how has Bible prophecy been fulfilled? The information concerning that is on this website and also in books that you can purchase and read on our accompanying book site www.BibleBlessings.net so we hope you will avail yourself of the wonderful information on how Bible prophecy concerning Israel is being fulfilled today in nations of the world in the time in which we now live. You may be a part of the fulfillment of Bible prophecy! Find your place in God’s plan! Read this website and the books that we offer, and may God bless your study on this wonderful subject of Israel in Bible prophecy. Thanks for watching.
