Ephraim´s Story

“Eprhaim’s story is part 2 in the video series The Two Houses of Israel. If you believe in the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua of Nazareth (often called Jesus), then you might be an Ephraimite. Join us as we explore Ephraim’s story (which might be yours).

Rightly dividing the word of truth

In Protestantism and in Christiandom, there are a lot of things taught that are not backed by the Word. What we want to do is to take you through the Scriptures, so that you are able to know what you believe and why.

Timotheus Bet (2 Timothy) 2:15
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Kepha Aleph (1 Peter) 3:15
15 But sanctify Yahweh Elohim  in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

Ephraim’s story key points

As we go through Ephraim’s story, we will see several key points.

  1. Scripture contains both genetic and spiritual blessings, and the two go together.
    We will see that, contrary to what is taught in Christianity, the arrival of the Messiah did not do away with the prophecies given in the Tanakh (O.T.) prior to His arrival.
  2. Joseph had two sons: Manasseh and Ephraim.
  3. Prophecies: house of Ephraim/house of Israel
    We will see that there are many prophecies throughout Scripture about the house of Ephraim (the house of Israel).
  4. House of Ephraim goes to a far land, repents, and returns to the land of Israel.
    And we will see how the house of Ephraim is a reference to what are sometimes known as the lost ten tribes of Israel. And that, while they are lost, Scripture also says that they will return one day. (Which means, they have to be somewhere in the meantime.)

Parable of the Prodigal Son

One of the things we see is that the prophecies and the promises that are given over the house of Ephraim (the house of Israel) are very similar to the parable of teh prodigal son that Yeshua our Messiah gave us in the first century (as told in the Brit Chadasha/N.T.).

Luqa (Luke) 15:11-13
11  Then He said: “A certain man had two sons.
12  And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood.
13  And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.

Luqa (Luke) 15:14-16
14  But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.
15  Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
16  And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

Luqa (Luke) 15:17-20
17  “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18  I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
19  and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” ‘
20  “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.

Luqa (Luke) 15:21-24
21  And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22  “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
23  And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;
24  for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

Luqa (Luke) 15:25-28
25  “Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
26  So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant.
27  And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’
28  “But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him.

Luqa (Luke) 15:29-30
29  So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends.
30  But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’

Luqa (Luke) 15:31-32
31  “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.
32  It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.’ “

We are going to take a look at a large body of evidence and a large body of Scriptures that show the continuity both of the spiritual blessings we receive in the Renewed Covenant, and of the physical (we what we might call the genetic component blessings) that are gien in the Tanakh (the O.T.).
