LOST……WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE THEY?

“Rebbe YahShua said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man,
too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” (Luke
19:9,10)”
One of the most popular television shows here in the US right now is “Lost.” It mixes thrills with
Sci-Fi wonder, it began with a jetliner traveling from Australia to Los Angeles crashing (too close for
comfort for me since I take that route often), leaving 48 survivors on an unidentified island with no sign of
civilization or hope of imminent rescue. A kind of Gilligan’s Island meets Survivor meets Land of the Lost.
Why this popularity for one television show? We have a fixation with things that are lost.
And one of the most popular prophetic subjects has to do with the “Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.” But
were they “lost” in the context that we did not know where to find them? For the answer we must refer to
the words of our Messiah: “Go…to the lost sheep of Israel. (Matthew 10:6)” He is saying this to the
disciples, notice their lack of response. What they did not say is more important than what they could have
said. They did not say, “But Rabbi no one knows where they are…they’ve been lost for centuries.”
Rather, the disciples expressed no difficulty with the commission given to them.
“These twelve Rebbe YahShua sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the
Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: but go rather to the lost sheep of the House
of Israel. And as ye go, preach, saying, The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. (Matthew 10:5-7)”
“…He answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the House of Israel. Then came she
and worshipped him, saying, Adon, help me. (Matthew 15:24,25)”
“I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will hear to my
voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd. (John 10:16)”
“…this full Messianic message of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto
all nations; and then shall the end come. (Matthew 24:14)” “…ye shall receive power, after that the
Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea,
and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (Acts 1:8)”
“…Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, immersing them in the name of the Father, by
authority of the Son through the inspiration of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), teaching them to
observe all that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age.
(Matthew 28:19)”
The Fall of the Commonwealth
We begin our study with an often overlooked event by many in Yahweh’s Word, that is, the
separation of the Commonwealth of Israel into two specific ‘houses’ around 926 BCE. Up to then, the
twelve tribes of Israel (plus the priestly tribe of Levi) had been united under the monarchies of Sh’aul,
David, and Solomon. Kings David and Solomon absorbed the Phoenicians into the Commonwealth of
Israel who had massive fleets, which sailed the globe. Via the widespread sailing routes of the Phoenicians,
the Israelites established a large network of colonies that stretched from Africa to Britain. The Scriptures
assert that King Solomon had a global impact, and that ancient kings traveled to Israel to witness
Solomon’s wealth and wisdom. As evidence of Israel’s global impact, the 10 Commandments (in PaleoHebrew) have been found written on a mountain in Los Lunas, New Mexico and on an unearthed tablet in
Newark, Ohio. But when King Solomon’s son Rehoboam ascended to the throne, the ten Northern tribes
rebelled and seceded from the union. This left only the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin and most of the
Priests of Levi under the control of the King in Jerusalem. From that time on, the tribes were divided into
two nations, which came to be called the House of Israel (the Northern ten tribes) and the House of Judah
(the Southern two tribes).
However, the division of Israel truly began in the heart of King Solomon.
“…King Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the
Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; of the nations concerning which Yahweh
