Subject: House of Joseph

The study of King Joseph of Ephraim first came to my attention in 1986, when some people from the headquarters of the Worldwide Church of God began putting private Bible studies to paper on the subject, and presenting them to Joseph Tkach, Sr., suggesting that he was this King Joseph, and that the Worldwide Church of God would be the remnant of Northern Israel that returns to the Holy Land. There was quite a bit of noise about it for a while, then it died down. I went to the library to see if anyone else was tuned in to a character named King Joseph, and found that the Jews have been writing and prophecying about him for thousands of years. The most helpful book that I came across at that time was The Messiah Texts, the author's name of which I cannot recall. The following study is based solely on the Bible although the other writings make it come alive and sparkle.

The Northern 10 Tribes are called the House of Joseph in Scripture

Joshua 17:{17} and JAHshua spoke to the house of Joseph, to Ephraim and to Manasseh, saying,
"You are a large tribes, and have great power; you will not have only one lot; {18} but the mountain will be yours; for it is a woods, and you will carve out of it; its goings out will be yours; for you will drive out the Canaanites, although they have iron chariots, and although they are strong."

Oba. 1:{17} "But on Mount Zion will be those who escape, and it will be restricted; and the house of Jacob will possess their possessions; {18} and the house of Jacob will be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau stubble, and they will kindle in them, and devour them; and there will not be any remaining from the house of Esau; for the Self-Existant has spoken it;

Jdg. 1:{22} And the house of Joseph also went up against the citidel House Of The Majesties; and the Self-Existant was them; {23} and the house of Joseph sent to destroy the citidel House Of The Majesties; now the name of the citadel before was the Almond Orchard;

(Gen 48 UKJV) {5} "and now your two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, who were born to you in the land of Mizraim before I came to you to Mizraim, are mine; like Reuben and Simeon, they are mine, and will be called after the name of their brothers in their inheritance; …

{19} and his father refused, and said,
"I know it, my son, I know it: he also will become tribes, and he also will be great: but truly his younger brother will be greater than he, and his son will become an assembly of nations;"
{20} and he kneeled them that day, saying,
"Israel will kneel through you, saying,
'The majesties make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh;'
and he set Ephraim before Manasseh;

Return of the Northern 10 Tribes

Please notice that the Exodus from Egypt was the first recovery of the children of Israel. The following speaks of two recoveries from the northern countries. It also differentiates between the northern tribes led by Ephraim and the southern tribes led by Judah. We are speaking of the first recovery at this place in the time-line.

Isa 11:{11} And it will be in that day, that the Majesty will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his tribes, who will be left, from Ashshur, and from Mizraim, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Sumer, and from Defence, and from the countries of the sea; {12} and he will lift up a banner for the nations, and will gather the outcasts of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth;"

(Zec 10 UKJV)
{5} "And they will be like mighty males, who tread down their enemies in the mud of the streets in the battle; they will fight, because the Self-Existant is with them, and the riders on horses will be disgraced; {6} and I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy on them; they will be as though I had not cast them off; for I am the Self-Existant their majesties, and will hear them; …; {10} and I will also bring them again out of the land of Mizraim, and gather them out of Ashshur; and I will bring them into the land of Perpetual Fountains and Lebanon;

(Jer 31 UKJV) {3} the Self-Existant appeared long ago to me, saying,
"Yes, I have loved you with an ages-lasting love; therefore I have extended mercy to you; {4} I will build you again, and you will be built, virgin of Israel; you will again be adorned with your hand-drums, and will go out in the dances of those who make merry; {5} you will plant vines on the mountains of Samaria again; the planters will plant, and will profane them as common things; {6} for there will be a day when the watchmen on Mount Ephraim will cry,
'Rise up, and let us go up to Zion to the Self-Existant our majesties;'
{7} "for the Self-Existant says;
'Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; publish praise, and say,
"Self-Existant, save your tribes, the remnant of Israel;"
{8} 'see, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the female with child and her who gives birth to a child together; a great company will return there; {9} they will come with weeping and with supplications; and I will lead them; I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, in which they will not stumble; for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my chief.'"

{10} Hear the word of the Self-Existant, you nations, and declare it in the countries far away, and say,
"He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him like a shepherd keeps his flock;"
{11} for the Self-Existant has redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of him who was stronger than he; {12} therefore they will come and sing in the height of Zion, and will flow together to the goodness of the Self-Existant, for wheat, and for wine, and for oil, and for the young of the flock and of the herd; their breather will be like a watered garden; and they will not sorrow any more at all; {13} then the virgin will rejoice in the dance, both young males and old together; for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them rejoice from their sorrow;
{14} "And I will satiate the breather of the priests with fatness, and my tribes will be satisfied with my goodness,"
says the Self-Existant.

{16} The Self-Existant says;
"Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; for your work will be rewarded,"
says the Self-Existant;
"and they will come back from the land of the enemy; {17} there is hope in your end,
says the Self-Existant,
"that your children will come back to their own border."

{18} I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself for this;
"You have chastised me, and I was chastised, like a young bovine unaccustomed to the yoke; turn me, and I will be turned; for you are the Self-Existant my majesties; {19} surely after I was turned, I grieved; and after I was instructed, I struck against my thigh; I was ashamed, yes, even disgraced, because I bore the reproach of my youth."

{20} "Is Ephraim my dear son? Is he a pleasant child? For since I spoke against him, I still earnestly remember him; therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy on him,"
says the Self-Existant.

{21} Set up road signs, make high heaps; set your heart toward the highway, the same way that you went; return again, virgin of Israel, return again to your citadels; {22} how long will you go about, you back-sliding daughter? For the Self-Existant has carved out a new thing in the earth, a female will encircle a man.

[And of Judah, the Eternal speaks separately:]
{23} The Self-Existant of armies, the majesties of Israel says;
"They will again use this speech in the land of Judah and in its citadels, when I will reverse their captivity;
'The Self-Existant kneel you, home of righteousness, and mountain of restrictedness;'
{24} "and farmers will dwell together in Judah itself, and in all its citadels, and those who go out with flocks; {25} for I have satiated the weary breather; I have replenished every sorrowful breather."

And They Will Be One Nation

Eze. 37:{15} The word of the Self-Existant came to me again, saying,
{16} "Moreover, son of an earthling, take one stick, and write on it,
'For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions;'
"then take another stick, and write on it,
'For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions;'
{17} "And join them to one another into one stick; and they will become one in your hand; {18} and when the children of your tribes speak to you, saying,
'Will you not show us what you mean by these?'
{19} "Say to them, the Sovereign GREAT I AM says;
'See, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they will be one in my hand.'"

{20} "And the sticks on which you write will be in your hand before their eyes; {21} and say to them,
'The Sovereign GREAT I AM says;
"See, I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, where they have gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land; {22} and I will make them one nation in the land on the mountains of Israel; and one king will be king to them all; they will no more be two nations, nor will they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all; {23} nor will they defile themselves any more with their carved idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions; but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, in which they have missed, and will cleanse them; so will they be my tribes, and I will be their majesties.

Zec. 10:{5} "And they will be like mighty males, who tread down their enemies in the mud of the streets in the battle; they will fight, because the Self-Existant is with them, and the riders on horses will be disgraced; {6} and I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy on them; they will be as though I had not cast them off; for I am the Self-Existant their majesties, and will hear them; {7} and those of Ephraim will be like a mighty male, and their heart will rejoice like through wine; yes, their children will see it, and be glad; their heart will rejoice in the Self-Existant; {8} and I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them; they will increase like they have increased; {9} and I will sow them among the tribes; they will remember me in far countries; and they will live with their children, and turn again; {10} and I will also bring them again out of the land of Mizraim, and gather them out of Ashshur; and I will bring them into the land of Perpetual Fountains and Lebanon; and there will not be enough room for them; {11} and he will pass through the sea with affliction, and will strike the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river will dry up; the pride of Ashshur will be brought down, and the scepter of Mizraim will go away; {12} and I will strengthen them in the Self-Existant; and they will walk up and down in his name,"
says the Self-Existant.

Under One King

Please note that the House of Joseph takes precidence over the House of Judah in the kingship: only if there is no king in the House of Joseph does the House of Judah have preeminence.

{8} "Judah,… {10} The scepter will not go away from Judah,
nor a law-giver from between his feet,
until (Shiloh comes) he comes whose right it is;
and the tribes will be obedient to him [THE ONE WHOSE RIGHT IT IS];

Shiloh was located in the inheritance of the house of Joseph.

(JAH 18 UKJV) And the whole multitude of the children of Israel assembled together at Tranquility, which is Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the appointed times there; and the land was subdued before them;… {5} and they will divide it into seven parts; Judah will abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph will abide in their coasts on the north;

Gen 49:{22} "Joseph… {26} the blessings of your father
are above the blessings of my son
to the utmost bound of the ages-lasting hills;
they will be on the head of Joseph,
and the kingship of the leader of his brothers.

Deu 17:{14} "When you have come into the land that the Self-Existant your majesties gives you, and will possess it, and will dwell in it, and will say,
'I will set a king over me, just like all the nations that are around me;'
{15} "you will set him king over you, whom the Self-Existant your majesties will choose; one from among your brothers …{16} and he will not multiply horses to himself, …; {17} nor will he multiply women to himself …; nor will he greatly multiply silver and gold to himself;"

The men in Zec. 3 and Zec. 6 are not the same person, although each is called Jahsua: one is the high priest, and the other one is his student, for the word has the same meaning in Hebrew and does not carry the blood relative connotation that it does in English.

Zec 6:{9} And the word of the Self-Existant came to me, saying,
{10} "Take some of those from the captivity, Heldai, of TobiJAH, and Jedaiah, who have come from Babylon, and come the same day, and go into the house of Josiah, the son of Zephaniah; {11} then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of JAHshua the son of Josedech the chief priest; {12} and speak to him, saying,
"This says the Self-Existant of armies, saying,
'See the male whose name is The BRANCH;"
"and he will grow up out of his place, and he will build the ediface of the Self-Existant; {13} it is he who will build the ediface of the Self-Existant; and he will bear the glory, and will sit and rule on his throne; and he will be a priest on his throne; the counsel of peace will be between them both; {14} and the crowns will be for the favor of Helem, and TobiJAH, and Jedaiah, and Hen, the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the ediface of the Self-Existant; {15} and those who are far off will come and build in the ediface of the Self-Existant; you will know that the Self-Existant of armies has sent me to you; this will happen if you will diligently obey the voice of the Self-Existant your majesties."

With One Temple

Please note that the temple and priesthood are separate from the kingship, and have been since Aaron and Moses.

Psa. 78:{67} also he refused the tent of Joseph, and did not choose the tribe of Ephraim; {68} but chose the tribe of Judah, Mount Zion that he loved; {69} and he built his sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth that he established for ages;

(Zec 3 UKJV) And he showed me JAHshua, the chief priest, standing before the messenger of the Self-Existant, and an adversary standing at his right hand to resist him; {2} and the messenger said to the attacker,
"The Self-Existant rebuke you, adversary; the Self-Existant who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you; is this not an ember pulled out of the fire?" …
{5} and I said,
"Let them set the turban of the Chief priest on his head;"
so they set the turban of the Chief priest on his head, and clothed him with garments; and the messenger of the Self-Existant stood by; {6} and the messenger of the Self-Existant protested to JAHshua, saying,
{7} "The Self-Existant of armies says;
'If you will walk in my ways, and if you will keep my ordinance, then you will also judge my house, and will also keep my courts, and I will give you places to walk among these who stand by; {8} hear now, JAHshua the chief priest, you, and your fellows who sit before you; for they are men for a sign; for, see, I will bring out my servant the BRANCH; {9} for see the stone that I have laid before JAHshua; on one stone will be seven eyes; see, I will engrave its engraving,"
says the Self-Existant of armies,
"and I will remove the unjustness of that land in one day; {10} and in that day,"
says the Self-Existant of armies,
"every male will call to his neighbor under his vine and under his fig tree."

King Joseph Will Reign For Seven Years

The first part of Daniel's prophecy relates to the nation.

Dan 9:{24} "Seventy weeks are determined on your tribes and on your restricted citadel, to restrain the transgression, and to seal up the offerings, and to make reconciliation for unjustness, and to bring in ages-lasting righteousness, and to seal up the perception and the prophet, and to anoint the Most Restricted place; {25} know therefore and understand, that from the going out of the command to restore and to build Jerusalem until the Anointed, the shepherd, will be seven weeks, and sixty-two weeks; the street will be built again, and the wall, even in troubled times; {26} and after sixty-two weeks Anointed will be cut off, and shall have nothing; the tribes of the shepherd who will come will cut off the citadel and the sanctuary; the end of it will be with a flood, and it will be cut off by desolations until the end of the war.

Verse 27 refers to the rule of King Joseph, who will rule for seven years, or one prophetic week. In the middle of the week, the adversary will cause him to go into exile, where he will remain until he is beheaded for his refusal to worship the adversary as God.

{27} "And he will confirm the covenant with many for one week; in the middle of the week he will cause the slaughter and the offering to rest from its occupation, and the idols of the desolator will be on the battlements until the decreed destruction will be poured out on the desolator."

The Place of Safety

A woman is always a symbol of a nation in Scripture. This woman is the physical nation of Israel represented by the king and his counselors and some of the people.

(Rev 12 UKJV) And a great sign is seen in the heavens; a woman having been clothed with the sun, and the moon is under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars is on her head; {2} and she, having a child in her womb, is crying, being in child-birth, and having been distressed to bear; {3} and another sign is seen in the heavens; and, see, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads; {4} and his tail draws the third part of the stars from the heavens, and throws them to the earth; and the dragon stands before the woman who is about to bear, to devour her child as soon as it is born; {5} and she is bringing out a son, a male, who is about to shepherd all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child is caught up to God, and to his throne; {6} and the woman is fleeing into the wilderness, where she has a place having been prepared by God, that they might nourish her there a thousand two hundred sixty days.
{13} And when the dragon is seeing that he is thrown onto the earth, he is pursuing the woman who brought out the man child; {14} and two wings of a great eagle are given to the woman so that she might fly into the wilderness, to her place, where she is nourished there for a time, and times, and half a time [three and one-hallf years, as in Daniel], from the face of the dragon; {15} and the dragon is throwing out of his mouth water like a flood after the woman so that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood; {16} and the earth is helping the woman, and the earth is opening her mouth, and swallowing up the flood which the dragon is throwing out of his mouth; {17} and the dragon is enraged with the woman, and is going to make war with the remnant of her offspring, those keeping the commands of God, and having the testimony of Anointed Redeemer.

World War III

(Dan 11 UKJV)
{14} and in those times many will stand up against the king of the south; also the robbers of your tribes will exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they will fall; {15} so the king of the north will come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fortified citadels; the arms of the south will not withstand him, nor his chosen tribes, nor will there be any strength to withstand; {16} but he who comes against him will do according to his own will, and no one will stand before him; he will stand in the glorious land, which will be consumed by his hand; …{21} and in his estate will stand up a vile person, to whom they will not give the honor of the kingdom; but he will come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries; {22} and with the arms of a flood they will be overflowed from before him, and will be broken; yes, also the shepherd of the covenant; {23} and after the treaty made with him he will work deceitfully; for he will come up, and will become strong with a small tribe; {24} he will enter peaceably even on the fattest places of the province;…

{30} "For the ships of Chittim will come against him; therefore he will be grieved, and return, and have fury against the restricted covenant; so he will do; he will even return, and have regard for those who forsake the restricted covenant; {31} and arms will stand on his part, and they will pollute the sanctuary of strength, and will take away the daily slaughter, and they will place the abomination that makes desolate; {32} and such as do condemnation against the covenant he will corrupt by flatteries; but the tribes who know their majesties will be strong, and do exploits; {33} and those who understand among the tribes I will instruct many; yet they will fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by plunder, many days; {34} now when they fall, they will be helped with a little help; but many will cling to them with flatteries; {35} and some of them of understanding will fall, to try others by them, and to purge them, and to make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for an appointed time; {36} and the king will do according to his will; and he will exalt himself, and magnify himself above every the majesties, and will speak marvelous things against the majesties of the majesties, and will prosper until the fury is accomplished; for what is determined will be done; {37} nor will he regard the majesty of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any power; for he will magnify himself above all; {38} but in his power he will make weighty the majesty of munitions; a majesty whom his fathers did not know he will make weighty with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pleasant things; {39} so he will do in the most fortified citadels with a strange majesty, whom he will acknowledge and increase with weight; he will cause them to rule over many, and will divide the land for gain.

{40} "And at the time of the end the king of the south will push at him; the king of the north will come against him like a whirl-wind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he will enter into the countries, and will overflow and pass over; {41} he will enter also into the glorious land, and many countries will be over-thrown; but these will escape out of his hand, Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon; {42} he will stretch out his hand also on the countries; the land of Mizraim will not escape; {43} but he will have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Mizraim; the Libyans and the Cushites will be at his steps; {44} but news out of the east and out of the north will trouble him; therefore he will go out with great fury to cut off, and utterly to take away many; {45} and he will plant the tents of his palace between the seas in the glorious restricted mountain; yet he will come to his end, and no one he will help him."

(Dan 12 UKJV)
"And at that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who stands for the children of your tribes; there will be a time of affliction such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time; at that time your tribes will have a physical escape, every one who will be found written in the book; {2} and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to ages-lasting life, and some to shame and ages-lasting contempt; {3} those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars for ages and ages; {4} but you, Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book until the time of the end; many will run back and forth, and knowledge will be increased."

{5} Then I Daniel looked, and, see, there stood two others, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river; {6} and one said to the male clothed in fine cotton, who was on the waters of the river,
"How long I will be until the end of these wonders?"
{7} And I heard the male clothed in fine cotton, who was on the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand his left hand to the heavens, and took an oath by him who lives for ages that it will be for a limited time, appointed times, and a half; and when he will have accomplished the scattering of the power of the restricted tribes, all these things will be finished; {8} and I heard, but I did not understand; then I said,
"My Sovereign, what will be the end of these things?"
{9} And he said,
"Go your way, Daniel; for the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end; {10} many will be purified, and made white, and tried; but the condemned will condemn; and none of the unjust will understand; but the wise will understand; {11} and from the time that the daily slaughter will be taken away, and the abomination that makes desolate set up, there will be a thousand two hundred ninety days."

{12} "Kneeled is he who waits, and comes to the thousand three hundred thirty-fifth day; {13} but go your way until the end; for you will rest, and stand in your lot at the end of the days."

There are two harvests, the first of wheat, which is the righteous, and the second of grapes, which is the wicked.

(Rev 14 UKJV)
{14} And I am seeing, and, see, a white cloud, and on the cloud one sitting like to the son of man, having on his head a crown of gold, and in his hand a sharp scithe; {15} and another messenger is coming out of the temple, crying with a great voice to the one sitting on the cloud,
"Send your scithe in, and reap; for the time is here for you to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe;"
{16} and the one sitting on the cloud thrust in his scithe on the earth; and the earth is reaped.

{17} And another messenger is coming out of the temple which is in the heavens, also having a sharp scithe; {18} and another messenger is coming out from the altar, having authority over the fire; and is crying with a great cry to the one having the sharp scithe, saying,
"Send your sharp scithe in, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe;"
{19} and the messenger thrust in his scithe to the earth, and is gathering the vine of the earth, and throwing it into the great wine-press of the anger of God; {20} and the wine-press is trampled outside the citidel, and blood is coming out of the wine-press, up to the horses bridles, for the distance of two hundred miles.

{11} And I am seeing the heavens having been opened, and see, a white horse; and he who is sitting on him is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war; {12} his eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many crowns; and having a name written, which no man knows except himself; {13} and being clothed with a garment dipped in blood; and his name is calling "The Word Of God;" {14} and the armies in the heavens are following him on white horses, clothed in fine wide-woven cotton, white and clean; {15} and out of his mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it he should strike the nations; and he will shepherd them with a rod of iron; and he treads the wine-press of the anger and wrath of Almighty God; {16} and he has on his garment and on his thigh a name written,
King Of Kings, And Master Of Masters.
{17} And I am seeing one messenger standing in the sun; and he is crying with a great voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the middle of the heavens,
"Come and gather yourselves together to the supper of the great God; {18} so that you may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of powerful men, and the flesh of horses, and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all, both free and bond, both small and great."

{19} And I am seeing the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies being assembled to make war against the one sitting on the horse, and against his army; {20} and the beast is taken, and with him the false seer doing the signs before him, by which he misled those having received the mark of the beast, and those worshipping its image; these both are thrown alive into a lake of fire burning with sulfur; {21} and the rest are slain with the sword of the one sitting on the horse, having come out of his mouth; and all the birds are filled with their flesh.

A Third Captivity?

Are the tribes righteous after their return? Only a very few individuals. The nation will have to go into a third captivity, their last one, also called the time of Jacob's trouble, or Armageddon.

Hosea 6:{4} "Ephraim, what I will do to you? Judah, what I will do to you? For your mercy is like a morning cloud, and like the early dew it goes away; {5} therefore I cut them by the prophets; I killed them by the words of my mouth; the judgments on you are like the light that goes out; {6} for I desired mercy, and not slaughter; and the knowledge of the majesties more than burned offerings; {7} but they have transgressed the covenant like an earthling; they have dealt treacherously against me there; {8} Perpetual Fountains is a citadel of those who work unjustness, and is polluted with blood; {9} and like troops of robbers wait for a male, so the company of priests murder in the way by consent; for they commit lewdness; {10} for I have seen a horrible thing in the house of Israel; there is the whoredom of Ephraim, and Israel is defiled; {11} also, Judah, a harvest is set for you, after I reverse the captivity of my tribes."

(Zec 11 UKJV)
{3} There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is plundered; a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of the Jordan river is plundered; {4} the Self-Existant my majesties says;
"Feed the flock for the slaughter; {5} whose possessors slay them, and do not hold themselves ashamed; those who sell them say,
'Kneeled to is the Self-Existant; for I am rich;'
"and their own shepherds do not pity them; {6} for I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land,"
says the Self-Existant;
"but, yes, I will deliver the earthlings, every one, into his neighbor's hand, and into the hand of his king; and they will strike the land, and I will not deliver them out of their hand; {7} and I will feed the flock for slaughter, even you, poor of the flock;"
and I took two sticks to myself; the one I called Crown, and the other I called Priestly Turban; and I fed the flock; {8} also I cut off three shepherds in one month; and my breath was distressed for them, and their breath also abhorred me; {9} then I said,
"I will not feed you; whatever dies, let it die; and whatever is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let all the rest eat the flesh of his neighbor."

{10} And I took my staff, Crown, and cut it in two, so that I might break my covenant which I had made with all the tribes; {11} and it was broken in that day; so the poor of the flock who waited on me knew that it was the word of the Self-Existant; {12} and I said to them,
"If you think good, give me my price; and if not, forget it;"
so they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver; {13} and the Self-Existant said to me,
"Cast it to the potter; a goodly price that I was valued at by them;"
and I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the Self-Existant; {14} then I cut my other staff in two, Priestly Miter, so that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.

A Final Regathering

(Isa 11 UKJV)
{11} And it will be in that day, that the Majesty will set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his tribes, who will be left, from Ashshur, and from Mizraim, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Sumer, and from Defence, and from the countries of the sea; {12} and he will lift up a banner for the nations, and will gather the outcasts of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth; {13} the envy of Ephraim will cease, and the adversaries of Judah will be cut off; Ephraim will not envy Judah, and Judah will not trouble Ephraim; {14} but they will fly on the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they will plunder those of the east together; they will lay their hand on Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon obeying them; {15} and the Self-Existant will utterly cut off the tongue of the Mizrai sea; and he will wave his hand over the river, in the heat of his mighty wind, and will strike it in its seven streams, and make males go over dry-shod; {16} and there will be a highway from Ashshur for the remnant of his tribes who remain; just as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Mizraim.

(Zec 14 UKJV)
See, the day of the Self-Existant comes, and your plunder will be divided in the middle of you; {2} for I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the citadel will be taken, and the houses robbed, and the women raped; and half of the citadel will go out into captivity, and the residue of the tribes will not be cut off from the citadel; {3} then the Self-Existant will go out, and fight against those nations, like when he fought in the day of battle.

{4} And his feet will stand in that day on the mountain of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mountain of Olives will split down the middle toward the east and toward the west, and there will be a very great valley; and half of the mountain will move toward the north, and half of it toward the south; {5} and you will flee by the valley to the mountains; for the valley to the mountains will reach to Azal; yes, you will flee, just as you fled from before the world-quake in the days of Uzziah, king of Judah; the Self-Existant my majesties will come, and all the restricted with you; {6} and it will be in that day, that the light will not be clear, nor dark; {7} but it will be a day which will be known to the Self-Existant, not day, nor night; but it will happen, that at evening time it will be light; {8} and it will be in that day, that living waters will go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the sea in front, and half of them toward the sea in back; in summer and in winter it will be so; {9} and the Self-Existant will be king over all the earth; in that day it will be; the Self-Existant is one, and his name one.

{10} All the land will be turned like a plain from the hill to Pomegranate Idol, south of Jerusalem; it will be lifted up, and inhabited in its place, from Benjamin's gate to the place of the first gate, to the corner gate, and from the fortress of Hananeel to the king's wine-presses; {11} and males will dwell in it, and there will be no more utter ruin; but Jerusalem will be confidently inhabited.

{12} And this will be the affliction with which the Self-Existant will strike all the tribes who have fought against Jerusalem; their flesh will melt away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will melt away in their holes, and their tongue will melt away in their mouth; {13} and it will be in that day, that a great tumult from the Self-Existant will be among them; and every one will lay hold on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand will rise up against the hand of his neighbor; {14} and Judah will also fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the nations around will be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel in great abundance; {15} and so will be the affliction of the horse, of the male donkey, of the camel, and of the female donkey, and of all the animals that will be in these tents, like this affliction.

{16} And it will be, that every one who is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to bow down to the King, the Self-Existant of armies, and to keep the appointed times of tabernacles; {17} and it will be, that whoever from all the families of the earth will not come up to Jerusalem to bow down to the King, the Self-Existant of armies, there will be no rain on them; {18} and if the family of Mizraim does not go up, and does not come, that have no rainfall, but water the land with their feet; this will be the affliction with which the Self-Existant will strike the nations that do not come up to keep the appointed times of tabernacles; {19} this will be the punishment of Mizraim, and the punishment of all nations that do not come up to keep the appointed times of tabernacles.

{20} In that day will there be written on the bells of the horses, RESTRICTEDNESS TO THE SELF-EXISTANT; and the pots in the Self-Existant's house will be like the bowls before the altar; {21} yes, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be restrictedness to the Self-Existant of armies; all those who slaughter will come and take from them, and simmer in them; and in that day there will be no more Canaanite in the house of the Self-Existant of armies.


As for the comments about the future of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip, they came straight for the prophecies of Nostradamus, I forget the name of the specific books.

These are not all the references that could be gathered, but you get the gist from what's here.
