The Stick of Yosef
What is the meaning of ‘The Stick of Yosef’?
Unbeknown to most non-Jewish Bible students, and placed on the back burner by the Rabbis and leaders of Judaism, is the almost totally suppressed historical fact that the Kingdom of Israel under the Rule of King David and Solomon (around 1000 BCE), was a vast World Empire on the level of all known World Empires of history. This Empire reigned from the Mediterranean Sea to the Euphrates River in the East, a vast land masse. Because of their failure to comply with His requirements, the God of Israel pulled the carpet from under this Kingdom which consisted of two Houses:
- the House of Judah (consisting of the Tribes of Judah and Benjamin), and
- the House of Israel (consisting of the Northern ten Tribes of Israel).
These two Houses lived in enmity and war with each other until after several centuries, the Northern Ten Tribed House was exiled into oblivion amongst the Nations. The House of Judah which was also exiled after the Fall of Jerusalem in 70 CE retained its Jewish Torah Identity throughout their exile and persecution amongst the nations for some 2000 years until their miraculous Return to their Father Land in 1948. This according to the Restoration Promises of God. The Northern Ten Tribed House of Israel, though assimilated with the nations and having lost their Israel identity totally, is under the same Divine Oath of Restoration to their former Father Land, the Land of Israel in the Middle East.
There are numerous Prophecies to this effect in the Tanach and also hidden under the Promises of the New Testament. A comprehensive Listing of these Prophecies which form the Main Theme of the Bible, can be found here. The Main Prophecy can be found in Ezekiel 37:15 onwards – after the review of the Skeleton of Ezekiel (the entire House of Israel) to come Alive (first part of Ezekiel). In this Prophecy God refers to these two Houses as the ‘Stick of Judah and the Stick of Yoseph / Ephraim.
The Stick of Yosef Vision
World-wide today, there are signs of the re-awakening and re-identifying of the exiles of the House of Israel. They have lost all identity with Israel and Torah through their 2.700 years of exile. While being identified by their return to Torah, to customs of Judaism and a love for Jews and the land of Israel, they are totally confused regarding their true Israel Identity. 2000 years of Church domination have also turned them against Judaism, Jews, Rabbis and Rabbinic authority and interpretation of the Bible based on a 3,500 year Acadamy of higher theology. They do not know how far to integrate with Judah and generally show a distinct resistance against the only possible way of returning to the Land of Israel requiring conversion to Judaism. According to ruling State law, Jews have a legal right of return and citizenship for non-Jews is all but non-existent.
This, added to the resistance of Judaism and their rejection of these ‘Egyptian-like’ Returnee claimants to Torah, (ref. coi-recon.org/stick-of-judah) is making any Reconciliation almost totally impossible. Yet, COI believes and proves that Reconciliation across these great barriers IS indeed possible.
COI Reconciliation Projects, through this Web Site and its promotions, strive to assist you with Scriptural evidence, information and guidance for reconciliation between the two estranged factions of Israel and the ultimate establishing of the Universal Kingdom of the God of Israel in a new World Order.
This cannot occur before the two estranged houses have reconciled and made peace with each other.
