The obvious meaning of this prophecy shouldn’t be ignored. If a magnificent event that fufills the prophecy has already happened, then to try to attribute it to Satanic Pharisaic-ism (or Jew ethno-cult) would be a GRAVE mistake.
The prophecy is about Judah and Ephraim. Ephraim was the head of the 10 northern tribes. The kingdom was divided and the whole of Israel was ruled by TWO different kings. The prophecy of the TWO sticks becoming ONE stick, means the commonwealth of Israel would once again be ruled by ONE king… that happened on Calvary. JESUS IS KING of all Israel.
This is NOT about Jews and the “lost” tribes becoming Jewish, as many YouTube “Hebrew Roots” teachers claim. Messiah has ALWAYS had only ONE body, from the Garden to the Second Coming and beyond…
Eph 4:4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Adam and Eve were the FIRST CHRISTIANS… when God said to the woman, “your seed shall crush the serpents head”, they instantly BELIEVED God, and looked forward to this coming SEED. Abraham was also a Christian:
John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
The Commonwealth of Israel is a nation of COVENANTED peoples. It is a grafting-in and cutting-off process. Its ALWAYS been that way… its nothing new.
The TWO sticks fulfill the promise given to Abraham:
Genesis 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many GOYIM.
Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
