12 Tribes 12 Apostles 2 Sticks 1 Staff:
I would like to mention again Yeshua’s words regarding the 12 Tribes and 12 Apostles:
And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. – Matt. 19:28
That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. – Luke 22:30
12 Apostles to Rule the 12 Tribes.
But as you have seen, I have given two possible methods, both with equal merit in determining which Apostles is to be over which Tribes. Regardless, each Apostle will have authority over at least 1 Tribe, and I have no problem with an Apostle having a shared authority over 2 Tribes. It’s like a classroom with a teacher; one teacher for one class. But if the teacher in authority over the a class leaves the classroom and another teacher (a colleague of the other teacher not a substitute) comes to temporarily take over, teach or watch over the class, that teacher has the same authority as the first who had to leave. So in similar fashion I see no problem with Apostles sharing authority over more than one Tribe.
Today Believers in Yeshua the Messiah, many discovering they are of Judah, Levi and other Tribes of Israel have taken up the Apostolic mantle and are fervently “fishing” and “hunting” for, finding and ministering to the “12 tribes” that has been “scattered abroad.” We are living in a day when prophecy is being fulfilled right before our very eyes!
I for one have discovered Judean and Gadite linage in my family and am currently involved in ministering to the Igbo people of Nigeria who have been found to be descendants of Gad’s sons Eri, Areli and Arodi. It has also been found that portions of Levi, Judah, Zebulun and other tribes are among the Igbo as well.
I have written a book containing the proofs of the Igbo’s linage in Gad entitled, “Omenana: As in Israel, So in Igboland (Are Igbos, Hebrew?)” which can be purchased at: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/raybash
Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. – Zech. 8:23
This prophetic passage hints about the Jewish Apostles sent to the sent to the 10 Lost Tribes of Israel and each Lost Tribe Finding an Apostle, grabbing his Tzitzit and Begging to be brought back to Torah.
Israel is swallowed up: now shall they be among the Gentiles as a vessel wherein is no pleasure. – Hosea 8:8
This passage complements Zech. 8:23 in that it hints about how the 10 Tribes will attach themselves to Judah and return to the Faith after they have settled among or have become assimilated with the Gentile Nations and wake up to who they really are.
We know Messiah will soon be returning and He will return for a full, complete and spotless Bride and this fills me with hope that all the Lost Tribes will be soon be found so the Bride can be complete and the Two Houses of Israel will be reunited again as prophesied by Ezekiel 37.
It is my sincere prayer that the reader was edified and enlightened on truths contained in this series that have been hidden and obscured for nearly 2000 years, and that this has caused a desire for the reader to walk in the Light of Truth, in the footsteps of Yeshua the Messiah, by walking the Torah daily as He did and taught us to do and this will cause us a have a yearning and a boldness to reach the 12 and the 70.
