The Messiah of Israel: Our Redemption……..

Isa 11:9-16  They do no evil nor destroy in all My set-apart mountain, for the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of יהוה as the waters cover the sea.a Footnote: a Hab_2:14.

10  And in that day there shall be a Root of Yishai, standing as a banner to the people. Unto Him the nations shall seek, and His rest shall be esteem. 

11  And it shall be in that day that יהוה sets His hand again a second time to recover the remnant of His people who are left, from Ashshur and from Mitsrayim, from Pathros and from Kush, from Ěylam and from Shin‛ar, from Ḥamath and from the islands of the sea. 

12  And He shall raise a banner for the nations, and gather the outcasts of Yisra’ěl, and assemble the dispersed of Yehuḏah from the four corners of the earth. 

13  And the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehuḏah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehuḏah, and Yehuḏah not trouble Ephrayim. 

14  But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; together they plunder the people of the east, their hand stretching forth on Eḏom and Mo’aḇ, and the children of Ammon shall be subject to them. 

15  And יהוה shall put under the ban the tongue of the Sea of Mitsrayim, and He shall wave His hand over the River with the might of His Spirit, and shall strike it in the seven streams, and shall cause men to tread it in sandals. 

16  And there shall be a highway for the remnant of His people, those left from Ashshur, as it was for Yisra’ěl in the day when he came up from the land of Mitsrayim. 

The Messiah is the ‘unfolding’, ‘revealing’ of all the divine aspects of the unique Yisra’elite soul through the observation and obedience of all the Mitzwoth from HaShem.

 

Our Messiah is:

The General Yechida, Adam Katmon, Messenger of His Presence, Messiah Ben Yoseph/David…….


Our souls are bearing the ‘sparks’ of Messiah.


It is forbidden to pray to bow down to any other (god), and/or messiah, and/or before any image…… or to put any other (god), and/or messiah, and/or any image before or instead of HaShem.

“The redemption will come about only through the study of the Torah. And the essential redemption depends upon the study of the Kabbalah”
R. ELIYAHU, THE VILNA GAON (Evven Shelemah (a ‘complete, without defect stone’) 11:3)

 


Deu_28:1 “And it shall be, if you diligently obey the voice of HaShem your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands which I command you today, that HaShem your Elohim shall set you high above all nations of the earth.

Deu 14:1 “You are the children of HaShem your Elohim. Do not cut yourselves nor shave the front of your head for the dead,

 

Deu 14:2 for you are a set-apart people to HaShem your Elohim, and HaShem has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a treasured possession above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.

Deu 26:17 “You have today caused HaShem to proclaim to be your Elohim, and to walk in His ways and guard His laws, and His commands, and His right-rulings, and to obey His voice.

Deu 26:18 “And HaShem has caused you to proclaim today to be His people, a treasured possession, as He has spoken to you, and to guard all His commands,

Deu 26:19 so as to set you high above all nations which He has made, for a praise, and for a name, and for esteem, and for you to be a set-apart people to HaShem your Elohim, as He has spoken.”

Isa_2:2 And it shall be in the latter days that the mountain of the House of HaShem is established on the top of the mountains and shall be exalted above the hills. And all nations shall flow to it.

Isa 2:3  And many peoples shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of יהוה, to the House of the Elohim of Ya‛aqoḇ, and let Him teach us His ways, and let us walk in His paths, for out of Tsiyon comes forth the Torah, and the Word of יהוה from Yerushalayim.” 


Deu 30:1-6  “And it shall be, when all these words come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you shall bring them back to your heart among all the nations where יהוה your Elohim drives you, 

2  and shall turn back to יהוה your Elohim and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your being, you and your children, 

3  then יהוה your Elohim shall turn back your captivity, and shall have compassion on you, and He shall turn back and gather you from all the peoples where יהוה your Elohim has scattered you. 

4  “If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under the heavens, from there יהוה your Elohim does gather you, and from there He does take you. 

5  “And יהוה your Elohim shall bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. And He shall do good to you, and increase you more than your fathers. 

6  “And יהוה your Elohim shall circumcise your heart  and the heart of your seed, (the ‘unfolding’, ‘revealing’ of all the divine aspects of the unique Yisra’elite soul…...) to love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being, so that you might live…..

Remember always ‘Guard your evil inclination (evil desire) follow your good inclination (good desire)’:  ‘Deu_28:1  “And it shall be, if you diligently obey the voice of HaShem your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands which I command you today, that HaShem your Elohim shall set you high above all nations of the earth.’

A teaching from (A Project of Congregation Lubavitch – Chabad Jewish Education Center):

‘A Spark of Moshiach’

What does it mean that every Jew (Note from Ariel: every Israelite) has a spark of the soul of Moshiach?

In order to answer this question, we must first understand what the Jewish (Israelite) soul is.  The Midrash writes:  “There are five names for the soul:  Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama, Chaya and Yechidah.”  These five names, as explained in the teachings of Chassidut, are not simply words.  Rather, each one reflects a different level and aspect of the soul.

The first four (Nefesh, Ruach, Neshama and Chaya) refer to the powers of action, emotion, intellect and will.  Each of these aspects of the soul can be used in either a positive or negative way. One can choose to perform good deeds or bad, indulge in positive or negative emotions, or use one’s intellect to accomplish constructive or destructive ends.  Our will can also be directed towards the positive or the negative.  Yechidah, on the other hand, is the essence of the soul, which cannot be corrupted by our surroundings.  The Yechidah is connected to the divine at all times, and always reflects its Creator.

Over the course of our daily lives, the Yechidah rarely finds expression.  Only when we are confronted with a challenge that threatens to sever our link with G-d, our Yechidah rises up and reveals itself.  The Yechidah cannot, and will not, allow itself to be separated from its divine source.

The teachings of Kabbalah explain that the entire Jewish (Israelite) People is comprised of a single, united soul.  Moshiach is called the “general Yechidah,” containing and reflecting the soul root of every Jew (Israelite).  Each of our souls is a reflection or ray of this general Yechidah.

When a Jew (Israelite) reveals his penchant for self-sacrifice and overcomes his spiritual challenges, he is revealing the spark of Moshiach within his soul.  This gives each one of us the power to bring the Redemption.  When we arouse the Yechida within us, we release ourselves from the wiles of the evil inclination, which leads to the entire Jewish (Israelite) People being released from the shackles of exile.

A teaching from Rabbi Ginsburgh (Internet source: http://www.inner.org/jewhome/jewhome5.htm):

The Jewish Home: Chapter 5 – Five Levels of the Soul – An Inverted Seal

In light of the above, an obvious question arises. What category corresponds to the yud of G-d’s name, the world of Atzilut, and to the higher, kotso shel yud, the tip of the yud, which is the sefirah of keter? To understand this, we must return to the first model of the three categories. In the first model, the home corresponds to the highest level of the nefesh, the makeef harachok, called the yechida. The clothing, the makeef hakarov, corresponds to the chaya. In Kabbalah, the chaya is generally the yud of G-d’s name, and the yechida is the “tip of the yud.” Mazon corresponds to the first hei of G-d’s name. This is the phenomenon in Kabbalah called the Chotam Hamithapech, the “Inverted Seal.” The very highest level of yechida becomes physically manifest at the level of malchut. The very highest descends to the very lowest. The chaya primarily manifests at the level of madim, clothing, which are the characteristics of the heart.

Mazon, the first hei of G-d’s name, is the pivotal point. We have seen that food is the hinge on which the other two categories reflect themselves.

The five levels of the soul are called nefesh, ruach, neshama, chaya, yechida. The yechida reflects itself in the nefesh. This is revealed in the relation between Mashiach and King David. Each of the five levels of the soul correspond to a general soul root. The Arizal explains that the general soul root of the nefesh in all of Am Yisrael is King David. The ruach is the prophet, Elijah. The neshama, which is the mind, mochin d’Imma, is Moses, as stated in the Gemorah that Moses merited binah. The chaya corresponds to the ideal and primordial, blissful state of Adam and Eve before the sin. Had Adam stood that trial successfully, he would have risen to the level of yechida. Since he failed the trial he fell from all the levels of Olam ha’Atzilut. The highest level, yechida, is that of Mashiach, may he become revealed speedily in our days.

It is clear that of all the previous figures, Mashiach reflects himself in King David. That is why Mashiach is referred to as Mashiach ben David. The pivot point is Moses. The union of Mashiach and David depends on the power of Moses. In Kabbalah we are taught that the Mashiach possesses the soul of Moses within the body of David. Thus he is physically the son of David but it is the soul of Moses that is manifest in his inner state of consciousness.

Likewise, Moses reaches up and takes the spiritual level of Adam before the sin and manifests it as Elijah the Prophet. Had Adam not sinned, he would not have been punished with death. The soul that did not physically die is Elijah. In this respect, the rectification of Adam before the sin, or the return to the idyllic state of Adam prior to the sin was achieved by Elijah. This was done with the power of Moses. This is Chotam Hamithapech.

A teaching from Choni (Internet source http://soullite.blogspot.co.il/2012/03/yechidas-vessel.html)

‘Yechida’s Vessel

Jewish mysticism teaches that the soul is comprised of five general levels. Their names are from lowest to highest:

1) Nefesh – a biological soul,
2) Ruach – an emotional or personality soul,
3) Neshama – a rational soul,
4) Chaya – an intuitive soul,
5) Yechida – will or core identity

Together these five levels string together to form a spiritual umbilical cord stretching from the soul’s uppermost origin of identity down into her earthly body. Finally settling around the body, the soul extends her illuminations into the various organs of the body, providing them with animation and function. The main centers of illumination are the mind, heart and liver. The neshama extends illumination into the left hemisphere of the brain. The ruach extends illumination into the heart/lung area and the “nefesh” into the liver. These main centers directly control very important bodily systems. The neshama mostly animates the nervous system. The “ruach” mostly animates the circulatory and respiratory system and the “nefesh” is mostly concerned with the digestive system.

When it comes to the chaya, the body does not really provide a complete vessel in the body to receive its illumination. However, the right hemisphere of the brain serves as a partial vessel. The vessel is incomplete because it can only partially accommodate the chaya’s illumination. The outpouring and intensity is much greater than the right brain is capable of grasping. It’s like trying to capture a gallon of water in a shot glass. Only small portion of the totality will be contained. This is why the signals from the right hemisphere are marked by spotty flashes of insight and creativity, unlike the steady rigorous thought pattern of the left brain. In fact, in order for those spotty flashes to transform into fully useful ideas, they need to be transferred over to the left hemisphere, into the domain of the neshama’s illumination, for unpacking.

So what serves as the vessel for the illumination of yechida? Generally, yechida is described as having no biological organ or organ system serving as it’s vessel of illumination. Early on in his work Tal Orot, Rabbi Yaakov Meir Shpielman explains that the yechida’s illumination uses the chaya and neshama soul levels to serve as its vessel, thereby, affecting the body indirectly by way of these soul levels. However, this can’t be the only pathway for yechida to reach the body – though it’s probably the usual norm. The Chabad Chassidic classic Kuntres Hitpa’alut discusses downloading the yechida into conscious awareness – referring to this state of consciousness as, “a revelation of the yechida“. Furthermore, the most recent Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, explains that while yechida does not have a specific organ in the body to claim as its own, it is associated with the whole body (see the book “On the Essence of Chassidus”).

Since yechida’s illumination can’t be expressed by a fragment of the human being, like through a single bodily organ, it seems likely that the whole person working as an integrated single unit can serve as the vessel for yechida.  This soul level is so powerful that it requires the cooperation and coordination of a whole integrated person in order to receive the download of its illumination. So the whole person ends up becoming yechida‘s vessel.

This understanding helps explain why Judaism places tremendous emphasis on the physical side of human life. While there are world religions which heavily emphasize transcendence, i.e. a retreat away from the physical realm, Judaism usually includes the physical side of life in religious devotional service, allowing a whole person, body and soul, to participate in reaching out towards the Creator. Only when the whole person participates in the devotion, can the highest soul level, the yechida also join along. In certain cases, this can extend to including even a person’s life interests – as the holy Baal Shem Tov was fond of quoting, “In all your ways know Him …” (Proverbs 3:6).

Besides needing a whole person to serve as a vessel for the yechida, there is also another dynamic occurring when the participation includes the lowest levels of the person, the yechida actually feels more at home. This is because there’s a unique relationship between the highest and lowest levels. In any well planned project the final outcome is usually contained in the most initial thought. Therefore, the first step and last step of the project most closely match, in perfect reflection, more closely than any of the other stages. All the middle stages, no matter how incredible, only serve as a bridge linking the first thought to the final outcome and therefore, aren’t included in the special relationship shared by the very first and last stages. For example, if one wants to build a house, if well planned out, the very first notion of how the house should look will be reflected in the final product. The same idea applies to the soul/body relationship, the stages a human being which the Creator created first, i.e. the yechida, are best reflected in the body, which was created last.

The five soul levels merely reflect the placement of soul in relation to body. So the level, illuminating the liver, is called nefesh and the level illuminating the heart/lung area is called ruach, merely because of their placement in relationship to the body. However, placement settings are flexible and can change when a person spiritually grows. What was previously considered ruach can join the nefesh, becoming part of nefesh. When this happens, what was previously considered neshama will become the new ruach. This pattern will chain all the way up and as a result what was previously yechida will now become chaya and the person will attain a brand new yechida. 

Such a pattern of continual download of yet higher soul levels can occur because soul levels are endlessly continuous upward into higher spiritual realms. With each stage of growth a person can change the position of the different soul levels in relation to the body, thereby, changing their names and functions. So what was yechida to fragmented vessels in an earlier state of a human being’s spiritual development might become merely the nefesh to a more wholesome integrated human being in a more advanced stage of spiritual growth.’


’18th Century Jewish tzaddik, Rebbe Nachman of Breslev:
“If the Tzaddik displays exceptional spiritual powers, the mystery does not lie in some notion of intrinsic superiority. The spirituality he possesses IS THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE TORAH ITSELF!! – for the Tzaddik is one who has brought his entire being so totally under the dominion of the Torah that his every thought is a Torah thought, every word he says is Torah, and every deed is for the sake of Torah. This explains why the Rabbis said, “How foolish are the people who rise out of respect before a Sefer Torah (Torah scroll) but will not stand up in honor of a great man (Maccot 22b). For the Tzaddik is one whose every thought, word and deed is a MANIFESTATION OF TORAH. It is in this sense that the Tzaddik is the perfect exemplar of the COVENANT – because the TORAH ITSELF IS THE COVENANT. The Tzaddik does more than merely conform to the letter of the Law. Even in what is permitted to him, he sanctifies himself to the ultimate degree. It is through his complete devotion to the highest ideals of Torah that the divine power of the Torah shines through him and gives him access to powers unattainable by those who have not reached a similar sanctity.” (From Rabbi Nachman’s Tikkun, Tikkun HaKlali, page 100.’

In Preface by the Lubavitcher Rebbe to Tanya, 

(to the English rendition of Tanya: Part I)

Chassidus * [Hasidism] in general, and Chabad * Chassidus in particular, is an all-embracing world outlook and way of life which sees the Jew's central purpose as the unifying link between the Creator and Creation. The Jew is a creature of "heaven" and of "earth," of a heavenly Divine soul, which is truly a part of G-dliness, clothed in an earthly vessel constituted of a physical body and animal soul, whose purpose is to realize the transcendency and unity of his nature, and of the world in which he lives, within the absolute Unity of G-d.

The realization of this purpose entails a two-way correlation: one in the direction from above downward to earth; the other, from the earth upward.  In fulfillment of the first, man draws holiness from the Divinely-given Torah and commandments, to permeate therewith every phase of his daily life and his environment — his "share" in this world; in fulfillment of the second, man draws upon all the resources at his disposal, both created and man-made, as vehicles for his personal ascendancy and, with him, that of the surrounding world.  One of these basic resources is the vehicle of human language and communication.

As the Alter Rebbe,* author of the Tanya, pointed out one of his other works, any of the "seventy tongues" when used as an instrument to disseminate the Torah and Mitzvoth, is itself "elevated" thereby from its earthly domain into the sphere of holiness, while at the same time serving as a vehicle to draw the Torah and Mitzvoth, from above downward, to those who read and understand this language.

 

 You can learn how our ‘Messiah: General Yechida, Adam Katmon, Messenger of His Presence, Messiah Ben Yoseph/David…….’ can be ‘fully displayed’ in us as the Alter Rebbe in ‘Likutei Amarim’ part 1 of the book ‘Tanya’ try to explain.

Gaddi Eliyahu from Bet Yisra'el about Messiah:

So to it will be with the Mashiach after he merits to that neshoma and recognizes himself that he is Mashiach, as it states [in the Zohar] Mashiach will be revealed but he still won’t be recognized by the rest of the people[…] (Zohar, 2:7b, quoting R’ Chayim Vital) This describes how the initial “revelation” of Mashiach is when the neshoma of Mashiach is revealed to the individual who has been chosen by Hashem to be Mashiach. At the time that this individual receives the neshoma of Mashiach it is a private revelation, “but the rest of humanity will not recognize him”; only later will he be revealed to the people as Mashiach—what we refer to as the “coming of Mashiach”. The reason for this “delay” is found in the Ohr Hachama on Shemos 9a, where it states that “Mashiach can’t redeem Israel from below…only from Above…there needs to be an awakening from below in order to awaken the rachamim (compassion) from Above, even if the physical Mashiach wants to redeem [them].” This describes a situation where there already exists the “physical Mashiach” (i.e., the individual to whom has been bestowed the lofty neshoma of Mashiach) who himself knows that he is Mashiach, but the revelation to all of Israel has not yet occurred. We can see this in the language of the Yalkut Shimoni itself: the Midrash begins with “the year in which the King Mashiach is revealed”, and the Midrash concludes with “the hour in which the King Mashiach comes”. The year in which Mashiach is revealed refers to the initial revelation, when there is still a need to explain the events of the world to the Jewish people, “don’t be afraid”, etc. The hour when Mashiach comes refers to that transcendent moment when the Jews themselves are able to actually see and recognize the light of Mashiach. In other words, the revelation of Mashiach precedes and is distinct from the coming of Mashiach. (And it is self-understood that when there is such a situation—a situation where the man who himself is Mashiach is the only one to whom this has been revealed– then only this man is able to know and to inform others that “the year in which the King Mashiach is revealed” has been fulfilled, etc.)
From Ohr Hachama on Zohar Shemos 7b, quoting R’ Chayim Vital

Yes! Baruch HaShem! Mashiach can’t redeem Israel from below…only from Above…there needs to be an awakening from below in order to awaken the rachamim (compassion) from Above.

Rebbe Nachman of Breslev:
“If the Tzaddik displays exceptional spiritual powers, the mystery does not lie in some notion of intrinsic superiority. The spirituality he possesses IS THE SPIRITUALITY OF THE TORAH ITSELF!! – for the Tzaddik is one who has brought his entire being so totally under the dominion of the Torah that his every thought is a Torah thought, every word he says is Torah, and every deed is for the sake of Torah. This explains why the Rabbis said, “How foolish are the people who rise out of respect before a Sefer Torah (Torah scroll) but will not stand up in honor of a great man (Maccot 22b). For the Tzaddik is one whose every thought, word and deed is a MANIFESTATION OF TORAH. It is in this sense that the Tzaddik is the perfect exemplar of the COVENANT – because the TORAH ITSELF IS THE COVENANT. The Tzaddik does more than merely conform to the letter of the Law. Even in what is permitted to him, he sanctifies himself to the ultimate degree. It is through his complete devotion to the highest ideals of Torah that the divine power of the Torah shines through him and gives him access to powers unattainable by those who have not reached a similar sanctity.”
⦁ The mission of mashiach in his role of suffering is to initiate the regathering of the exiles or gather the lost sheep of Yisrael among the nations
⦁ our Heavenly Tzaddik who embodied the soul of Torah and BECAME a covenant to the people.
⦁ LIGHT and Hashem's Y'shua (salvation) to the Goyim or Gentile nations.

We understand that Yeshua-The Righteous One, was raised to the right hand of the Throne of Glory becoming “SHAR Ha PANIM being Connected with Mashiach ben Yosef. A Heavenly Tzaddik whose mission was to become a covenant for the people and to embody the solu of Torah and initate the gathering of the exiled souls of Israel.

Yeshua , Our Heavenly Tzaddik, The Chosen One or The Anointed One for the heavenly mission of restoring the exiled of Israel who require a renewal or restoration of their covenant and become a light of salvation to the gentiles.

We understand that Yeshua, Our Heavenly Tzaddik-The Righteous One, was raised to the Right Hand of The Throne of Glory becoming “SHAR Ha PANIM” ( Prince of the Countenance ) in the likeness of the verse in psalms: “Sit at My Right hand” hence, being elevated to a level higher than any of the angels, because the “Tzaddik Soul” is higher than the “angels” and being Connected with concept of first appearance of Mashiach ben Yosef -The Foundation of the world, who received the ‘soul’ of, The Messenger of His Presence – מלאך פניו., for through him the in-gathering of the exiles comes about and through the study of inner dimensional of Torah, in such way the redemption is brought closer until its full revelation of Mashiach ben David.

Gaddi

From Yair Davidiy of Brit-Am http://britam.org/tape3b.html:

According to the Biblical Commentary known as the Malbim (1809-1879), the MESSIAH, SON OF JOSEPH, was to head the Lost Ten Tribes in the latter days in the period leading up to the return of the Lost Ten Tribes and their eventual re-unification with Judah. The full name of the MALBIM was Meir Leib ben Yechiel Michael [Weiser], but he is called “MALBIM” for short. He lived in 1809-1879 CE. 

The Malbim comments on Ezekiel 37 (ESV): 

15 The word of the LORD came to me:

16 “Son of man, take a stick and write on it, ‘For Judah, and the people of Israel associated with him’; then take another stick and write on it, ‘For Joseph (the stick of Ephraim) and all the house of Israel associated with him.’

17 And join them one to another into one stick, that they may become one in your hand.

18 And when your people say to you, ‘Will you not tell us what you mean by these?’

19 say to them, thus says the LORD God: Behold, I am about to take the stick of Joseph (that is in the hand of Ephraim) and the tribes of Israel associated with him. And I will join with it the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, that they may be one in my hand.

20 When the sticks on which you write are in your hand before their eyes,

21 then say to them, thus says the LORD God: Behold, I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from all around, and bring them to their own land.

22 And I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. And one king shall be king over them all, and they shall be no longer two nations, and no longer divided into two kingdoms.

23 They shall not defile themselves anymore with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. But I will save them from all the backslidings in which they have sinned and will cleanse them; and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

24 “My servant David shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall walk in my rules and be careful to obey my statutes.

25 They shall dwell in the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children's children shall dwell there forever, and David my servant shall be their prince forever.

26 I will make a covenant of peace with them. It shall be an everlasting covenant with them. And I will set them in their land and multiply them and will set my sanctuary in their midst forevermore.

27 My dwelling place shall be with them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 28 Then the nations will know that I am the LORD who sanctifies Israel, when my sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.” 

          The Malbim explained the above verses that we have just read from the 37th chapter of Ezekiel in the following manner:

[Ezekiel 37:15] "He [the Prophet] was commanded to take one stick and to write upon it, these words,  ~FOR JUDAH AND FOR THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, HIS COMPANIONS~, [this stick] represented Judah and those [others] joined unto him from the Children of Israel, such as the Tribe of Benjamin, and the Sons of Levi, and the rest of the people who had attached themselves to Judah.          

          [And he goes on in Ezekiel] "~And he took another stick, and he wrote upon it, these words: ~FOR JOSEPH, THE STICK OF EPHRAIM, AND FOR ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL, HIS COMPANIONS~, [this stick] represents Joseph who was the source of the tribe [of Ephraim]. From Joseph developed the Kingdom of Ephraim, which began with Jeroboam, and therefore [the stick of Joseph] is [also] termed, ~THE STICK OF EPHRAIM.

         Ezekiel says: ~AND ALL THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL~, for unto him [unto Joseph] were joined all of Israel which belong to the Ten Tribes... Our Sacred Sages had a tradition that in the beginning (of the End Times) would arise a Messiah [i.e. Anointed Savior] from the house of Joseph who will reign over the Ten Tribes. He will wage wars and all of Israel will be gathered together under his banner. [This will continue] until later on, a descendant of David will appear, and he will reign over them... [over all the tribes].          

"The Tribe of Judah who are scattered among the nations [and are] weakly and few will attach themselves [unto the Ten Tribes]. They [i.e. the Tribe of Judah, the Jews] will be of secondary importance [at first] in the kingdom of the Anointed Descendant of Joseph. [This will continue] until later there will arise the Anointed Descendant of David in the Might of The LORD. At that time they will all [both Joseph and Judah] accept upon themselves the Kingship of the House of David. Then wars will cease for the Gentiles will request [guidance from] him [i.e. from the Messiah] ...          

          "He [the Prophet Micah] wants to describe the situation that will exist as long as the general in gathering will not be completed and all of the Exiled of Judah will still not be gathered together in the Land of Israel: Then, all that time, the House of Israel [meaning the Ten Tribes and the Anointed Descendant of Joseph who belongs to them] will be the principal party. They will be the warriors and the rulers. The House of Judah will be secondary [in importance] unto them. This was explained in Ezekiel [37:19] 
BEHOLD, I WILL TAKE THE STICK OF JOSEPH… “I WILL TAKE THE STICK OF JOSEPH; AND I WILL PUT UPON HIM THE STICK OF JUDAH”, i.e. the Malbim understands the verse to say that the stick of Judah will be put on the stick of Joseph. The Malbim understands this to mean that Judah will be secondary to Joseph.          

The KJ version of this verse (Ezekiel 37:19) that the Malbim is referring to has it translated as: 

 "[Ezekiel 37:19] SAY UNTO THEM, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; BEHOLD, 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, EVEN WITH THE STICK OF JUDAH, AND MAKE THEM ONE STICK, AND THEY SHALL BE ONE IN MINE HAND. 

          The King James seems to understand that the stick of Joseph will be put with the stick of Judah and not that the stick of Judah will be put with Joseph.  This is just the opposite of how the Malbim understands the verse. In the original Hebrew the verse could be understood either way. At all events, The MALBIM understands the Hebrew as saying that Judah will be put on (attached to) Joseph (and therefore will be at first of secondary "attach" status importance to Joseph. In Genesis chapter 44 it is related how the brothers sold Joseph. Joseph later had become the virtual ruler of Egypt. Meanwhile the Land of Canaan like the Land of Egypt was stricken with famine. The brothers of Joseph went up to Egypt to buy grain. Joseph recognized his brothers, but the brothers of Joseph did not recognize him. Joseph forced his brothers to go back to Canaan and eventually return accompanied by Benjamin the younger brother of Joseph by the same mother. Joseph then framed Benjamin and made Benjamin look like a thief. Joseph threatened to keep Benjamin as a slave. Judah stepped forward and approached Joseph and pleaded on behalf of Benjamin. Judah offered to serve as a slave instead of Benjamin. The Commentators say that because Judah took responsibility for Benjamin Judah merited to be given Messianic responsibility as part of his Tribal Destiny.  From Judah emerges the House of David and the future Messiah.

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher (Chabad) Rabbi, made the following observations on the action of Judah (Genesis: VaYigash). Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson was considered inspired by his followers and by many others. The relevant verse says: 

[GENESIS 44:18] THEN JUDAH CAME NEAR UNTO HIM, AND SAID, OH MY LORD, LET THY SERVANT, I PRAY THEE, SPEAK A WORD IN MY LORD'S EARS, AND LET NOT THINE ANGER BURN AGAINST THY SERVANT: FOR THOU ART EVEN AS PHARAOH.

          Commentary: On the verse: “FOR THOU ART EVEN AS PHARAOH”: Rabbi Schneerson quotes the source saying that Judah meant to say that Joseph is as powerful as Pharaoh and that Judah acknowledges his authority. Judah acknowledged the authority of Joseph. Because of this Judah merited the Promise in Ezekiel 37, “MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER”. The Rabbi says that in order for Judah to bring on the Messiah, to help the Messiah come, and realize the promise given to his seed (“MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER;
Judah must first do as the Patriarch Judah did when he CAME NEAR UNTO Joseph and he acknowledged the authority of Joseph and initially was influenced from Joseph.

Many of The Lost Sheep from the House of Israel cannot or there is no willingness in Yehudah to recognize or to come in Agreement with Ephraim. The prophecies are ONLY teaching about a Agreement in Messianic Times between Ephraim and Yehudah. Between the ‘outcasts of Yisra’ěl’ and the dispersed of Yehudah as is the teaching in ‘Isa 11:12 And He shall raise a banner for the nations, and gather the outcasts of Yisra’ěl3, and assemble the dispersed of Yehuḏah from the four corners of the earth.’

Yehudah (in general) ‘sees’ The Lost Sheep from the House of Israel as the ‘outcasts of Yisra’ěl!

And Yudah must come first to the point that the Rebbe mentioned:

‘Commentary: On the verse: “FOR THOU ART EVEN AS PHARAOH”: Rabbi Schneerson quotes the source saying that Judah meant to say that Joseph is as powerful as Pharaoh and that Judah acknowledges his authority. Judah acknowledged the authority of Joseph. Because of this Judah merited the Promise in Ezekiel 37, “MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER”. The Rabbi says that in order for Judah to bring on the Messiah, to help the Messiah come, and realize the promise given to his seed (“MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER;
Judah must first do as the Patriarch Judah did when he CAME NEAR UNTO Joseph and he acknowledged the authority of Joseph and initially was influenced from Joseph.’ Source: Yair Davidiy, Brit-Am http://britam.org/tape3b.html

Concluding The Lost Sheep from the House of Israel – Ephraim – must become Independent Organized United. What only is possible in two phases:

First in the Diaspora, in different places forming groups like independent states, all over the world and learning to speak all together with One Voice: Deu 30:10  ……. obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which are written in this Book of the Torah, if you turn back to יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being. 

After they are united in the Diaspora, existing like the Jews before 1948 than:

Second to form the United States of Israel: East of the Jordan River, in the South of Lebanon and in the Sinai. Outside, but near the Jewish State of Israel in Love as a defensive shield around Yehudah.

Only then Yehudah shall ‘say that Joseph is as powerful as Pharaoh and that Judah acknowledges his authority. Judah acknowledged the authority of Joseph.’ Messiah Ben Yoseph. And ‘Because of this Judah merited the Promise in Ezekiel 37, “MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER”. The Rabbi says that in order for Judah to bring on the Messiah, to help the Messiah come, and realize the promise given to his seed (“MY SERVANT DAVID SHALL BE THEIR PRINCE FOR EVER; Judah must first do as the Patriarch Judah did when he CAME NEAR UNTO Joseph and he acknowledged the authority of Joseph and initially was influenced from Joseph.’ Messiah Ben Yoseph…….
