Eze 37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one <0259> stick <06086>, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel his companions:

SCATTERING AND GATHERING: TRIBULATION AND REDEMPTION?

Joh 11:52 And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in ONE the children of God that were scattered abroad.

Eph 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in ONE body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:

Zec 14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
Historically God appears to be using the language of other sheep, not of this fold to the elect that were yet to be saved. This would be true of the 144,000 who were to be sealed prior to judgment as well as the redemption of the body that came into tribulation. As an unsaved body, God redeemed (saved) it from Babylon.
