END OF THE EXILE FOR THE NORTHERN KINGDOM
The ancient biblical prophet, Ezekiel, was told by YHWH to lay on his left side [curiously… the side traditionally associated with 'Din' (Judgment) and 'Gevurah' (Rigor)] in order to symbolically prophesy the judgment that was to come upon the Northern Kingdom [i.e., The 10 Northern Tribes of the House of Israel; collectively, known as Ephraim]. He was to lay on his left side for 390 days, which he was told would represent 390 years of Divine judgment to be executed upon the House of Israel… aka, Ephraim. He was furthermore instructed to lie on his right side for a further quantity of 40 days (years) which would depict the prophesied judgment which was to fall upon the Southern Kingdom of the House of Judah. (Ezekiel 4:1-6)
Unlike the House of Judah at the end of their Babylonian captivity, Ephraim (i.e., the 10 Tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel) did not repent and return to YHWH and to His Torah at the end of their judgment period proceeding from their Assyrian captivity. Therefore, according to the principle laid out in Leviticus 26, their punishment [i.e., exile and loss of identity… Hosea 8:8; Amos 9:9; Micah 5:8] was multiplied by 7 times the more. (Leviticus 26:18, 21, 24, 28).
390 years x 7 = 2730 years
The ancient captivity of the Northern Kingdom by the Assyrians began with their final conquest in 722-721 B.C.E. When, therefore, would the protracted Divine judgment (based upon Leviticus 26) upon the House of Israel/ Ephraim [i.e., exile and loss of identity…Isaiah 10:21-22] be over?
2730 – 722 B.C.E. [+ 1 because there is no year zero] = 2009 C.E.
2730 – 721 B.C.E. [+ 1 because there is no year zero] = 2010 C.E.
For YHWH promised the House of Israel/Ephraim the following:
“And I shall sow her for Myself in the earth, and I shall have compassion on her who had not obtained compassion. And I shall say to those who were not My people, ‘You are My people,’ while they say, ‘My Elohim!’” (Hosea 3:23, The Scriptures)
The end of the exile for the House of Israel/ Ephraim is NOW AT HAND; and they will in the very near future be able to reunite with the House of Judah in fulfillment of Ezekiel 37:15-28!
