The continuing study of the history and culture of the ancient nation of Israel is bringing to light more clearly day after day the influences of the two captivities and their influence on the nation as a whole through the common beliefs of the people.
The Jews have been a visible presence in the world for the past 2,000 years, with their reflection of the Babylonian captivity through their adoption of the Babylonian moon calendar with its festivals. The common explanation given is that the temple no longer exists. If that is the only reason, why do they still keep Passover and the Autumn Feast of Booths? There is a lot more to it than harvest festivals. The sighting of the moon each month (the word is not a derivative of the same word for moon, as will be shown elsewhere) is purely Babylonian, associated with the moon-based calendar. The Jews are now living in a restored land in the Middle East. They are the tribes of Judah and Simeon, whose portion was encircled by the tribe of Judah, thus sharing the same historical profile.
“Out of sight, out of mind.” That’s the northern 10 tribes. No one sees them. No one recognizes them. No one cares about them. They are gone, not only from history, but also the public perception. But they are not out of history. They have been sifted through every nation on earth, as promised, but they were re-gathered in the land given to Joseph an an inheritance from Jacob and coalesced into a nation in the 5 year period between 1798 and 1803.
Research that period, and all that happened was the coming into effect of the Constitution of the United States of America, and their first act was the purchase of the territory that included New Orleans and all the lands west of the Mississippi River. Lewis and Clarke went all the way to the Pacific Ocean before beginning their return trek.
On the political scene, the power of the Church of Rome was shattered when France took the Pope captive in 1798. He died in prison, and a new pope was elected, an election that was questioned ever since, placing the legitimacy of the succeeding Popes into doubt. The Church of Rome had ruled through the armies of the nations for the previous 2,000 years. That power was lost with this capture, and never fully restored. The nation with the strongest army has been the super-power ever since, and that title was transferred to the United States through two world wars.
Now look again, this time through a different prism.
For a nation to be cohesive and stand as one unit, they must share a history, a government, a culture, and a “mythology”, meaning a common set of beliefs that explains their origin, current situation, and future destiny. That so-called mythology in this case is that of Christianity.
There is a common belief abroad that Christianity is a branch of Judaism. Nothing could be further from the truth. Christianity has its roots in Egypt, in the Osiris traditions and beliefs, with its mother-child basis. It was morphed to call Osiris “the Heavenly Father”, Isis is called “Mary”, and Horus called “Jesus”.
Where did all this come from? Egypt. How did it get into Israel? Through Jereboam, the first king of the northern 10 tribes. It came about like this.
When Solomon oppressed the people beyond endurance, God sent a prophet to Jereboam, who was the young leader of the tribe of Joseph, and told him that he had been chosen to lead the 10 tribes that would tear away from the tribe of Judah’s house of David. Remember, the prophet tore his robe into 12 parts and gave 10 of them to Jereboam? Solomon became aware of this and sent to kill Jereboam, who responded by fleeing into Egypt, where the Pharaoh took him into his palace, nourished him, gave him the sister of his own wife as a wife, and thoroughly indoctrinated him into the religion, culture, and practices of Egypt for over 20 years before the death of Solomon.
When Jereboam returned to Israel, he not only brought his Egyptian wife and children with him, he brought the Egyptian culture, beliefs, and the mythology of the Apis bull, which he established in both the northern-most and southern-most town of the 10 tribes. Then he sealed the border between the 10 northern tribes and Judah to the south for fear that the people would continue to go to the temple for the festivals, which he cloned in the Egyptian image and set one month later than those in Jerusalem. Christianity was born from this change. So was God’s wrath, and this modified religion became the identifying mark of the people of the “lost 10 tribes” during their dispersal and sifting through all nations.
Just as the temple in Jerusalem has held the Jewish population in a common history and thus a common destiny, so has the Christian religion, which requires no temple, in fact, rejects all temples, held the northern 10 tribes in a common history and destiny for over 2,000 years, and when the remnant of the 10 tribes returns to the Middle East, which it will do before 2050, it will bring this Egyptian-derived religion with it, renewing the war, both overt and covert, between them and the temple-based Jews. “Can two walk together, unless they are in agreement?”
