Paul’s message to the lost tribes…Ephesians 2:11-18

Pauls Message to the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel:

Ephesians 2:11-18   “Do not forget, that there was a time when you who were pagans physically; called the Uncircumcised. (that is: all non-Jews, but specifically the rejected House of the Northern 10 Tribes of Israel, scattered in exile amongst the nations where they have lost their Israelite identity.)

 Do not forget that you had no Redeemer and were excluded from membership of Israel, (cut off from the Covenant by God and exiled amongst the pagan nations.  So, something had to happen to enable you to become members of Israel again)

aliens with no part in the Covenants with their Promises. You were immersed in this world without  hope and without  God (no longer part of the Covenant.  So, you had to be reconciled, brought back into the Covenant with God).

But now in Jesus; you that used to be so far apart from us, (Paul, speaking as a Jew)

 have been brought very close by the Blood of Jesus. (You have been bought at a very high price. Revelation 5:9-10)

 For He is the Peace (Reconciliation) between us (The House of Judah and the House of Israel)

 and has made the two into One (all the faithful Christian People of God)

and has broken down the barrier  which used to keep them apart, actually destroying by His own Person the hostility (rebellion) caused by the rules and decrees of the (Jewish Levitical) Law. (This rebellion by 10 tribe Israel and pagans against the Law was the barrier that kept them apart from Jews. This does not imply that Jesus did away with the Law itself,  rather; He removed the rebellion against the Law from the hearts of the receiving Israelites, as confirmed in Jeremiah 31:31-33 and Ezekiel 11:17-21, placing His Spirit in them, thereby instilling a love for obedience to the Law on their hearts and minds). 

This was to create One Single New Man (Born again believers) in Himself out of the two of them and by restoring Peace, through the Cross, to unite them both in a Single Body and reconcile them with God. In His own person He killed the hostility (against the Law – not the Law itself.)

Through Him, all peoples have in the One Spirit the Way to come to the Father.  So, you (Christian believers)

are no longer aliens or foreigners, you are citizens like all the Tzadikim (righteous Jews)

and part of God’s Household (People from every tribe, race, nation and language.)

 This Mystery that has now been revealed … was unknown to men in past generations.  It means that pagans (including the degenerated and lost 10 tribe Israel,) now share the same inheritance. They are part of the SAME BODY (of faithful Christians)

and the same Promise (as had been made to the ancient 12 tribes of Israel.)

has been made to them (the Gentiles and lost Israelites)

in Jesus, through the Good News of His atoning sacrifice. (that He, did sacrifice His Life in order to redeem them back into the Covenant relationship, with all its Divine Blessings)
