Please Note: On this page I may show the four letter blessed *Memorial Name of the Almighty in Ivrit - - Y-H-V-H, which we usually pronounce as Adonai or HaShem. At all times treat the most blessed Name with sanctity and when we even see the Name, we should say blessed be His Sanctified Name.
*This is My Name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations. Shemot - Exodus 3:15.
Are the Twelve Tribes of
On this site I will mostly use a version based on the Jewish Publication Society Tanakh (JPS)
From the image above of the Twelve Tribes of Israel, which sets the theme of this important study I am sure that by the time we reach the end we will have gained a great deal from the wonderful Word of Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, and I know with certainty that you will have learned some things that you may not have ever known before. As of 2021 I have been aware of the truth of this matter now for thirty years! If you have not heard any of what I will provide in this study, obviously you may ask, how come you know this, whilst others have not found this? Believe me, I am certainly not better than anyone else, for I feel far from being superior, but it is all due to having a Hebraic mind and loving to search out many wonderful facts and words from the Ivrit - Hebrew from our beloved Tanakh, as well as having an archaeological background, I feel that I have been blessed by Elohim with an understanding of ancient Hebrew times. Believe me it takes a great deal of prayer, and loving studying the Tanakh! I wanted you to understand this as we go on with this study for it is a vital link to understanding the Tanakh.
As we undertake this study, we should understand that the Tanakh is packed with treasures, and all it takes is time reading it and looking at the root of some words and comprehending just what it is really saying!
Now here is one secret of understanding our Tanakh better. And I have placed the secret below, for it is vital to take note of the following information:
There are three very clear levels of
learning & understanding of the Tanakh as given by
These three points or steps are the most valuable guide and it will certainly provide you with guidance and they will illuminate the sheer beauty and the fullness that can be found in Elohims most Sanctified Word!
When was the Word given to
2 Who was Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name, speaking to?
How was His Word understood by
I stress once again, I do believe that these three points are most relevant to our understanding of what the Almighty was saying at the time it was given and what it means to you and me right now, for the past still has great meaning today as we learn from it!
But we also must learn the following, 1. Never take the Tanakh out of its context, and 2. We cannot read someone elses letter and just assume that it solely applies to us, for as we read it in our modern day language rather than the original Ivrit, we should understand that languages change greatly!
Let us turn to Tehillim - Psalm 105:7-10 for I believe within these four verses you will discover an interesting dilemma. There are some who have come to me over the years and have asked rabbi, is there not a contradiction in this Tehillim? Let me tell you this truth, there is never any contradictions in the Tanakh of Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name. The only contradiction is always with those who do not comprehend, or checking what is actually said, and why, and when! As history has proven man has so frequently caused confusion because they refused to look back when it was written, and how it was understood then! This so-called problem is very easily solved, however we must look at the original Ivrit - Hebrew for clarification! Thus let us now look at this Tehillim and see what precious gem it will provide us.
Elohim; His judgments are in all the earth. He hath remembered
His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a
thousand generations; The covenant which He made with
Avraham, and His oath unto Yitzchak -
Let me transliterate part of verse 8 into Hebrew.
You will note that two special words are used; forever and everlasting in verse 10 and obviously even in our understanding these words should mean exactly what they say! However, this is not the case according to some theologians, for they can mostly only see a problem in these verses!
In Hebrew both the words forever and everlasting are the exact same Hebrew word, being Olam and it also translates as eternity, eternal, universe, without end. And there is much more, but I am sure that you get the picture!
However, there is one point in these verses that most simply cannot grasp, and thus it has been troublesome with the balance of these verses, thus I have been asked; But rabbi, why does it state in the second part of verse 8 that it is only for a thousand generations, does this not mean that there is an obvious time limit?
Obviously, reading this with our current understanding, on the face of it that would certainly be a very good question, and to be honest I do not blame anyone for asking it. The truth is, I am always delighted when I am asked, for it gives me the opportunity to explain the sheer beauty in these verses. But let me just quickly go back to the three points I have already mentioned, and here they are once again.
When was the Word given to
2 Who was Elohim, blessed be His Sanctified Name speaking to?
How was His Word understood by
Therefore, we need to remember that Elohim was
speaking to BNai Yisroel through the Psalmist and the
people at the time of hearing had a certain understanding that
was obviously very different to our way of thinking both in the
past and today. I mean, if you would transport yourself back to
Of course the children of
It was for that very reason that
For beloved, I have another piece in this
remarkable puzzle and that is not just regarding Hebraic time
that we need to understand, BUT, we all know that the Hebrew
Alphabet are not just letters, for it is also the Hebrew
Numerical system. I am sure you will know the following, but
for those who may not, let me explain. For example A
(Aleph) = 1, and B (
At that time the Psalm was given, the
highest numerical denominator in the Hebrew alphabet was 1,000,
Thus it was just like Elohim was saying to His people Israel,
My Covenant will be for you as far as you can possibly
count, and one thousand to Israel was like saying as
far as the stars of heaven and more, it was like saying many
millions, billions, way beyond their comprehension. Considering
Elohim did not say 1,000 years, but He multiplied this 1,000 when
He said a thousand generations and we
know from the Word that one generation is 40 years! And
thus, what Elohim was saying to
Therefore, this Tehillim Psalm 105:8 clearly proves that for example the Torah Mitzvahs and the Ten Commandments are FOREVER!
Remember, Elohim, blessed be He, spoke to His people in their understanding at that time!
This study will prove the following truth that the so-called Ten Lost Tribes of Israel theory is a hideous and an outrageous lie, and I am sorry, but I will make my thoughts very clear on this! For the whole ideology is and has been a hideous lie! This is a lie that has so many Anglo Saxons, Europeans and Americans, as well as Australians and others so terribly misguided. They are christians of various beliefs, but most believe in an evil lie that the Ten tribes were lost. I have got bad news for them, WE ARE ALL STILL HERE.
Did you know that the Word of Elohim, blessed be He, clearly proves that ALL Twelve Tribes of Israel and they were also present at the time when the Romans controlled Judah and all Twelve Tribes are still with us today within our communitys who have been scattered unto the four corners of the earth. It is just sad we no longer remember from which Tribe we are.
The truth is that the Tanakh makes it so VERY CLEAR, but, I guess those British Israelites tends to skip the facts,
We might well say, We know who
I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is upon the seashore Bereshis - Genesis 22:17 (JPS).
We have been told that a faithful remnant of
out of Yerushalayim -
Therefore it will be the faithful remnant that shall be counted as the Yisroel of Elohim, being all those who love His Torah, and live a life accordingly upon the earth.
And we need to understand that faithful Jews and ex Gentiles who have fully converted a Ger are both fully part of Yisroel
Now here is a powerful Question - Is Avraham the father of our faith? My answer I am sure will shock you, for it is - NO he was NOT!
The line of faith began with
There have been certain Christians who have
come to me over the years and said; But does the Bible not
make it clear that God was so tired of His backsliding people
that He finally gave up and he divorced them, for it clearly
states that in the book of
The problem with all those so-called good and faithful Bible readers and church goers is that they simply do not know or understand those powerful 3 points I gave at the beginning of this study.
Let us look, read and study the verse from Yirmyahu
And I saw, when, forasmuch as backsliding Yisroel had committed adultery, I had put her away and given her a bill of divorcement, that yet treacherous Yehudah - Judah her sister feared not; but she also went and played the harlot Yirmyahu - Jeremiah 3:8 (JPS).
Has , the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak -
Yes, the great I AM,
OK, you may ask, How can you possibly deduct this line of reasoning for it sounds very confusing? It is really very simple, for it comes straight from Elohims wonderful Tanakh!
The tragedy these days there are countless
broken marriages and
Although Elohim had been the perfect Husband,
one could hardly term their relationship at that time as marital
bliss. Elohim was the first to admit that all was not well. In Yirmyahu
Let us look at the Word Elohim uses here for DIVORCE. In Hebrew, it is KERITHUTH, which literally translates to SEPARATE.
However you will find that in the Tanakh there is also another word for divorce, being garash, and that word means, to be utterly removed to be cut off, divorced forever. In fact, this word also has the meaning to expel, and to do away with. This word is directly related to a grave, being a scab. As a scab is dead tissue, when it falls off it can never return. Thus, the garash type of divorce in the Tanakh means, to be cast away forever.
Praise that the word garash
was NOT used in Yirmyahu -
Scripture references for the word "Garash" are as follows, Vayikra - Leviticus 21:14, and 22:13. Bamidbar - Numbers 30:9. For "Kerith", Yirmyahu - Jeremiah 3:8, Devarim - Deuteronomy 24:1 & 3, and Yeshayahu - Isaiah 50:1.
In Devarim - Deuteronomy 24, verses 1 to 4,
where the word kerithuth is used, we will
obtain the full picture. If a man divorces his wife, she may
return to him at any time except if she has remarried and has
been divorced again.
Now let us look at another amazing scene that is given to us by our heavenly Father in His Word.
After Eliyahu -
Our Heavenly Father who gave

Elohim insisted on one condition, RETURN
(Hebrew, Shuv Repent, Return) again unto Me (Yirmyahu

It is imperative in these days that we rightly divide s Word of truth which is found in our Tanakh. For we live in evil and troubled times.
Sadly yes there is, for countless years

There is a christian group known as

so-called Ten Lost Tribes Theories.
The question we should be asking ourselves, are the Ten
Let me tell you right here and now that all
twelve tribes were well represented in Judea and
The following truths are found in the following reading, and I suggest that you read it and re-read it very carefully in order that you will gain a full understanding of what our Elohim is saying to you here, for it will astound you and provide the TRUTH of the WORD!
the thirty-sixth year of the reign of Asa (king of Judah), Basha
the king of Yisrael - Israel came up against Judah and built
Ramah, to prevent anyone going out or coming in to Asa the king
of Judah. And Asa brought silver and gold from the treasuries of
the House of and of the kings house and sent it
to Ben-Hadad king of Aram, who ruled in Damascus, saying,
Let there be a covenant between you and me, as there was
between my father and your father. See, I have sent you silver
and gold. Come, break your covenant with Basha king of

simple fact that, when

I will surely bless you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars in the sky and as the sand on the seashore. Bereshis - Genesis 22:17.
Obviously the whole idea of the stars and the
sand, etc, would have seemed to be massive, but Avraham would
never have placed a number to it. But that was in Bereshis -
Genesis. Did you know that by the time we reach the Book of Devarim
- Deuteronomy chapter 1, Moshe -
Now, you ask, How can that be possible,
your Elohim has multiplied you, and here you are today, as the stars of heaven in multitude. May Elohim of your fathers make you a thousand times more numerous than you are, and bless you as He has promised you! Devarim - Deuteronomy 1:10-12.
