That actually goes all the way back to Soloman. It appears he did a very stupid thing considering he was the son of David and supposedly a very wise
Read First Kings 11.
4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his
God, as was the heart of David his father.
5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites.
6 And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father.
And this was the result.
11 Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded
thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant.
12 Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father's sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.
13 Howbeit I will not rend away all the kingdom; but will give one tribe to thy son for David my servant's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake which I
And things just kept getting worse. There was a tax revolt under the son of Soloman and ten of the tribes walked. Formed the nation of northern
Israel. And Judah became a nation to itself.
Then both kingdoms fell under the rule of evil kings and Idolatry was rampant. Eventually in the 720s BC Israel was overran by the Assyrians. And in
605 BC Judah was overran by Babylon.
And according to Ezekial 4 the curse on the Israelites was 390 years and the curse on the Jews was 40 years.
Then comes the Prophesies of Daniel and the 70 weeks of years prophecy. The city was rebuilt and so was the temple. Ant the messiah was cut off at the
end of the 69th week. Then the times of the Gentiles started.
And it seems a terrible thing happened on the way to the reunification of the tribes of Israel. Two thousand years ago approximatly somebody
triggered the curse of Malachi. The Apocalypse was delayed a bit.
But the prophesies of Ezekial and Hosea among others predict a return and reunification of the tribes of Isreal. The prophesies of Genesis 48 and 49
predicts that by the end times the descendent of Israel would consist of dozens if not hundreds of nations. And the fig tree parables of Jesus Christ
seem to be a reference to those prophesies in Genesis. A veiled reference to the curse and the future nations that Israel was to become. The fig tree
is Judah surrounded by the orchard of Israel.
And someday the tribes will be reunified in the nation of Israel. Or at least representatives of them anyway. Per the prophesies.
9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.
10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in
the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.
11 Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of
the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.
