    Just as many of us do in the Church today. We know the LORD and we fear the LORD, but we have our own set of standards of Worship. We no longer follow a code of holiness. We no longer honor or even fear the presence of GOD in the sanctuary. Some with a thought that the mercy and grace of GOD will cover their sins.

    After Shalmaneser, king of Assyria carried off the House of Israel, commonly referred to as the lost ten tribes, being resettled in the lake Van region what happened to them? There is an account in the gnostic book 2nd Ezra that after some of the "Jews" returned from Babylonian captivity they sent messengers to them requesting their return, which they replied "no". Then travelled through the headwaters of the Euphrates River never to be heard from again.

    Although the Bible seems silent on this, is there any sources on where they went?

    To a believer it's difficult to understand why, someone can fear & yet not follow._._.
    Luke 8:27-37
    James 2:19

    It kept saying and the nation's feared the LORD. How can that be when the didn't follow His commandments? It's not making sense to me.

    Sin is a reproach to any people. They sacrificed their children for the pleasures of evil idolatry and fornication then and now today they sacrifice their children in clinics for the pleasures of fornication whoring after the " gods of pleasure ." They put the children in the fire so that they can continue in the lust of the flesh. Their punishment then is our warning now if we don't repent.

    if GOD did not spare his chosen race when they did evil in his sight,why would he spare the babylonians who had settled in a land not given to them by GOD and still did evil.amen we serve a awesome GOD of power.

    The fear of God is the begining of widsom. therefore,I will remember the promises He made with me.For fear of the enemy, people and things, we are often immoblized; because too often we forget or take for granted whose we are and who we are in Christ Jesus.The 39 verse states It is He who delivers us from all our enemies! Praise God, we are more than conquerors thuough Him that loves us.The Lord is the strength of my life whom shall we fear or whom shall we be afraid? When we are confronted with such trials and fears we must remember the coventant He made with us. He absolutely awesome in His doing. He always come through for us. David said that when my enemies came upon me they stumbled and fell. So, dont look back the enemy will not catch you because God stands between you and him to protect you from yhe hands of the enemy. Praise God!

    God is telling us how the people of the earth then and now reject his commandments, which lead to eternal life. God also tells us that the people that proclaimed his name served idols, like today. Every person made gods of their own (verse 29, like today), and put them in their houses of high places or places for pagan worship. Verse 32, so the people feared the Lord God through Jesus Christ, and served their own lords, and made unto themselves of the lowest priests..... Verse 33, they feared the Lord and served their own gods, after the manner of the nations/people, whom they carried away from their... Verse 34, unto this day, they do after the former manners! They fear not the Lord, neither do they after His statutes, decrees, judgments, and commands. Or after their ordinances, or the law, or the commandments, which the Lord commanded Jacob whom he named Israel... But like our forefathers, we do always resist the truth, knowledge of the holy ghost, holy spirit, or of God!( Acts 7:51; verse 35, God had made a covenant with them saying, ye/you shall not fear other gods (then explained what it mean to fear other gods), neither bow down to them, nor serve them, neither sacrifice to them! Verse 36, but the Lord God that brought you out of Egypt with a mighty hand and a stretched out arm, him shall you fear, and him shall you serve (or worship), and do sacrifices unto him. Verse 37, and the commandments that he wrote to you, you shall observe to do forever, and you shall not fear other gods.. This is a faithful and truth saying, and a parable from God/heaven above and is put in a earthly saying, but as God spoke to the Israelites long ago, so does he speak to their descendants, which people you are, and in need of repenting, or turning from the ways of the world!
