Many debates here are based on misinformation. For example in support of the argument of universalism, the statement is made that Ruth was not an
Israelitess. in fact the source for knowledge about Ruth is the Bible which quite clearly states that she was an Israelitess from the Plains of Moab
which were part of the territories selected tribes had occupied across the Jordan and which had been completely emptied of their original inhabitants
Such misleading issues are employed to build a case based on deception aimed at influencing a modern day power bloc holding to cherished religious
beliefs. By this technology, uninformed minds are swayed into accepting that the current political scenario must be what God has ordained and
therefore resources must be diverted to sustain it, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Further concerning Israel, a careful reading of the source documents will show the following:
There were 13 tribes not 12 (Joseph = 2)
12 tribes held land titles (regional territories)
1 tribe (Levi) did not have land inheritance rights but was funded out of regional treasury to perform religious and civil administration duties.
The 12 formed a "Union" and elected a leader to set up a central administration based on the model of the nations which surrounded them. The tribe
from which their earliest dominant leader (David) came eventally gained the ascendancy and defaulted to being their "royal" family in a "kingdom"
structure incorporating all 12 tribal territories.
The "royal family" gradually became an oppressive ruling ogligarchy.
This caused civil unrest and finally lead to a confrontation between the 11 regions and their centralised rulers.
Following a breakdown of negotiations over taxation issues, the 11 withdrew from the "kingdom" to form a new republic in the north.
They appointed an ex-guerilla leader as their first president and in due time under several successive Presidents (kings) changed their laws, religion
and customs to complete their separation from the southern kingdom and all it represented.
The Bible records their separate development through time listing their rulers parallel with the southern nation up until their captivity and exile by
the regional empire.
In the Bible, the new Republic is called by translators as "Israel", sometimes ,the "House of Israel" and following their later capture and
permanent exile by Assyria, as "The lost sheep of the House of Israel".
They themselves did not call themselves by any reference to the name "Israel" and ancient historical documents from that period reveal their actual
common name was known to the countries which surrounded them as something quite unrelated to anything biblical. They had completely lost their sense
of historical identity and went into exile as "gentiles".
The city of Jerusalem belonged to one of the 11 (Benjamin).
Benjamin was recovering from near decimation and through trade, was closely aligned almost to the point of being assimilated with southern neighbor
Judah who maintained the shadow "royal family" residence in Jerusalem. Judah has become associated with ownership of Jerusalem although those same
scriptures which are claimed to justify the present occupation also specifically deny their right to it. Another inconvenient truth.
The source documents state that Benjamin was "loaned" to Judah so Judah could retain the illusion of rulership function and because of the
significance of Jerusalem as the appointed capital of the "kingdom" against future signficant events.
This arrangement with Benjamin was further stated to be a short term arrangement until such time as the Appointed Ruler would appear in history from
Judah. At this time Benjamin was to take his place with his brethren of the "lost sheep of the House of Israel" as the Christ called them. From that
time Judah was no longer to be a ruling elite but one of the tribes. Many have "wailed" because of the perception that the kingdom was lost to them
but for them Shiloh had not come.
The new contract is foreshadowed in Jer 31:31-33 where it is extended to the House of Israel but carefully excludes the House of Judah for a time
until the "House of David" are again isolated and are able to consider the work of their hands (Zech 12:10), an event which clearly has not happened
Rev 2:9 and 3:9. The scripture typifies the present world political situation as the climax of the conflict between Esau and Jacob. Esau as part of
Edom meaning the whole alien banking/political NWO conspiracy scenario designed to impose world government on an unsuspecting and careless Jacob to
return this planet to a world state which once existed. Being achieved through deception, fraud and treachery where Esau masquerades as Jacob where it
suits his purposes.
Within this analogy it is of interest to consider Ezekiel 35 and 36 which acknowledges that Esau has gained control over the high places meaning the
government institutions/banks of the world power. Esau believes nothing can now stop him and note he intends to take control of the two nations of
Israel (vs 35:10) because they are the key to his success.
Unfortunately, All-Israel's numbers were prophesied on the exodus from Egypt to increase 1000 times which makes them about 600M men at this time or
about 2B total support population worldwide. After the wars to come in which the NWO is defeated, only a remnant of "Israel" survive of sufficiently
small numbers to be able to return to their original lands. (Ez 37:22)
The DNA tests are inconclusive because at best they only establish descent from a common origin which is "claimed" to have been a particular
identity and at worst for every test there are two opposing interpretations. What they also showed which is not recorded here is common origins which
were an embarrassment to the present political situation. For this reason a new way of interpreting the results had to be invented.
Personally I have no idea how the clock works but I am quite certain it will strike the correct hour to show that everything was always under control
for when the time comes.
