Were The Ten Tribes Of Israel Really Were Lost?







What Happened To The Twelve Tribes Of Israel? What About The Tribal Identity Of Jews In Today's Nation Of Israel?

Question : What happened to the 12 tribes of Israel? We see in the Bible that the ten tribes of Israel which is the northern kingdom were scattered by the Assyrians in 745-727 B.C. and 722-705 B.C. and nearly within a couple of century the other two tribes of Judah which is the southern kingdom went in to exile to Babylon around 605 - 586 B.C. and stayed there for 70 years. Then as we know only the two tribes of Judah's southern kingdom came back to live in the land of Israel in 539 B.C. From the time the two tribes of Judah regathered in their own land in 539 B.C., the two tribes lived and possessed the same land till they were scattered around the world in 70 A.D. as exactly Jesus prophesied in Luke 21:20-24.

During the time of Jesus Ministry, were they having the tribal identity then?

If yes, is that the reason Luke and Matthew were able to accurately write the genealogy of Jesus in the gospels? Did the Jews have some remnant of the other 10 tribes of Israel in their midst during the ministry of Jesus? How did they identify themselves as belonging to a particular tribe during that time 2000 years ago? Were each family having a record of their ancestry that they maintained? If this is true, how do the present day people of Israel after having been scattered for nearly two thousand years and many of them after having been mingled with other cultural people either on their father's side or on their mother's side, will be able to tell to which tribe they belong during the tribulation period? If this lack of clarity about their own tribal identity continues, how does God separate the twelve tribes apart in Rev 7:4-8 before the tribulation time begins? Can the tribal identity be found out through some of the latest Bio-technologies using DNA samples of a Jewish person? If the people of Israel have no true record of their tribal identity now and also if it cannot be found out by any available Bio-technology, will God be the first person to separate the tribes of present day Israel through His omniscience and allow them to enter the Millennium once again by their tribal identity?

Thanks in advance for your answer. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you.

Answer : Greetings in Jesus wonderful name! You have asked a very deep interesting question of the end times which we will look in to the Bible in details to find out the answer which we can concur safely from it.

The deterioration of the 12 tribes started when Solomon's son Rehoboam was Israel's king. As he was a proud man, he was warned against continuing the extravagant policies of his father. The people were tired of the heavy taxes, and they didn't want their sons conscripted in to government labor
(1 Kings 12:1-15).

But Rehoboam refused to listen to his wise counselors. Instead, he haughtily informed the people that they could expect even heavier taxes and more forced labor from him than from his father. This was a serious mistake
(1 Kings 12:16-24).

A gifted young man named Jeroboam led the 10 northern tribes to secede, and he established a separate state. Rehoboam was left with only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin
(1 Kings 12:20, 25-33). God told Rehoboam that the split was divinely ordained, and that he was not to fight the 10 tribes of Israel that had broken away from him. To his credit, Rehoboam heeded God's word and sent his troops home. The separation resulted in a northern kingdom in Samaria and a southern kingdom in Judea. The northern kingdom was known by several names, including: Israel, the House of Israel, Samaria, Joseph, the House of Joseph, and Ephraim. The southern kingdom was generally called Judah or the House of Judah.

A little later when King Jeroboam began to change the Law through his sinful innovations and began to set up calf idols at Bethel and Dan, and set up shrines on high places, and also changed the time and place for observing the Feasts of God, the entire tribe of Levi chose to reunite with Rehoboam, the two kingdom went their separate ways
(1 Kin 13:33; 2 Chr 11:13-14). These sinful innovations of Jeroboam plagued the House of Israel throughout their existence.

So Israel was thereafter ruled by several dynasties and never had a good king. From the very outset it began to lose citizens, for many of them emigrated southward to Judah. In
1 Kings 12:17, 23 we are told about a group from the 10 tribes, called "the remnant of the people," who chose to live in the Southern Kingdom.

On two other occasions, large numbers of people left Israel to join Judah. The first took place when King Asa led Judah in a widespread spiritual awakening
(2 Chron 15:8, 9-10). The second occurred during the great religious revival under Hezekiah (2 Chron 30:25, 26). Thus, large numbers of people from the northern tribes were absorbed in to the Southern Kingdom.

As the Northern Kingdom continued to degenerate spiritually, it became weaker militarily and industrially. Finally, in 721 B.C., the Assyrians overran the land and deported the most desirable citizens to their own country
(2 Kings 17:5-6, 18, 22-23, 24; 18:11-12). They left the lowest working class in their homeland, and many of these people identified themselves with the two southern tribes (2 Chron 34:9). The Southern Kingdom, therefore, though beginning with people from only the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, gradually drew in to it a significant number of members from all the other tribes (2 Chron 11:13-15, 16-17).

To graphically illustrate the House of Israel's rebellion against Him, God commanded Hosea to take a prostitute for a wife
(Hos 1:2). The reason for this was because God's wife, the House of Israel, had prostituted herself spiritually with the surrounding nations.

The harlot Gomer bore Hosea three children. God had Hosea name them symbolically to show how He was going to deal with the House of Israel, which had committed harlotry by worshiping strange gods. These three children were named Jezreel, Lo-Ruhamah, and Lo-Ammi. All three of these names described God's punishment on the House of Israel, as He explained to Hosea. JEZREEL
(which literally means "God sows" in Hebrew) represented God's sowing of the House of Israel among the Gentile nations of the earth after they were carried away into captivity by the Assyrians (Hos 8:8; Zec 10:7-10). LO-RUHAMAH (which is Hebrew for "no mercy") indicated that God would no longer have mercy upon the House of Israel, allowing them to be taken captive because of their sins (Hos 1:6). The name LO-AMMI (literally "no people" in Hebrew) pictured the gradual loss of national identity by the House of Israel. They were prophesied to lose the knowledge of who they were. Scattered throughout the nations of the world, the House of Israel forgot that they were part of the Jehovah's chosen people (Hos 1:9) and eventually came to view themselves as part of those nations where they were living. Essentially, they came to believe that they were Gentiles.

After Israel's fall, Judah continued to exist as an independent kingdom for another 135 years. The royal family of David remained in power, but most of the kings were not godly men. The few who were, however, led in revivals that temporarily halted the degenerative slide. But the citizens in the Southern Kingdom became increasingly involved in heathen practices and worship, and in 586 B.C. the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar captured Jerusalem and subjugated the entire land
(2 Kings 24:8-12, 13-20; 25:1-30).

During the captivity, Nebuchadnezzar did the same with Judah that Assyria had done with Israel, that is, he took the most desirable people out of their homeland and planted them in his own colonies
(Daniel 1:1-7). He hoped that they would merge with his other subjects, and some of them did (Daniel 1:8-14, 15-21). Many of these exiles intermarried with the heathen and were absorbed in to the Assyrian, Babylonian, or Persian cultures. Similarly, some of the people who had been left in the area around Jerusalem married heathen mates and became part of the Gentile civilization of that day.

But many others, representing all of the tribes
(i.e. those remaining in Palestine as well as those in various localities throughout the Assyrian, Babylonian, and the Persian empires), did not forget their roots. They maintained as much of their national distinctiveness as they possibly could. They remained loyal to Jehovah and the law of Moses, and married their own people. Synagogues were established as instruction centers. They spread out and settled everywhere throughout the ancient world - Asia Minor, Cyprus, Crete, the coastal region of Greece, the islands of the Aegean Sea, Southern Europe, Egypt, North Africa, and even India and China. Everywhere they went, they built synagogues for teaching the Mosaic laws. They continued to worship Jehovah as their God and considered Jerusalem to be their holy city, and they went there at least once in a lifetime pilgrimage or some people did visit regularly to worship and offer sacrifices to Jehovah God according to their financial ability, because that was the place of His choosing for all to worship and offer sacrifices (Heb 8:3-4; Deut 12:11-12, 14, 21; 1 Kings 8:22-53).

When the 70 years in desolation was over, taking in to account a period of one year rest for every six years which was called as a Sabattical year of rest for the land, thus 70 years exile for the disobedience, which God had initiated means Israel as a nation violated the sabbatical year 70 times
(Dan 9:2; Jer 25:8-11, 12; 27:6-8; 29:10; Ezek 36:37; 2 Chron 36:21; Lev 25:3, 4-5; 26:33, 34-45). Once those 70 years were over, in 537 B.C., by the authority of the Persian ruler Cyrus, Zerubbabel led a group of Jews back to Palestine. Some years later, when Ezra led the exiles migrate back in to their own land, he said "all Israel" returned to their land that had been taken captive by the Babylonians, thus implying that those who left to Babylon exile from the tribes of Judah, Benjamin, Levi and the remnant of the 10 tribes of Israel who lived together with them as one people, nearly all of them together again returned back to their native land (Ezra 2:70; 4:1).

Ezra's expedition succeeded by the grace of God in rebuilding the city of Jerusalem
(Hag 1:4), reconstructing the walls (Neh 6:15-16), and erecting a new temple (Ezra 6:13-16). These people looked upon themselves as representing the entire 12 tribes. How can we be sure about it? This can be clearly seen when at the dedication of the temple Ezra offered "twelve he-goats, according to the number of the tribes of Israel." (Ezra 6:17). In other words, a remnant of the 10 tribes were always present in the camp of the Jews by the grace and the protection of God.

In the following years every Jewish tribe went back to their homeland more and more. The population increased greatly in 336 B.C. when Alexander the Great encouraged large number of Jews to return to the nation of Israel. The majority of Israelite's who stayed back in foreign territories by their affluence chose to stay loyal to the faith of their fathers. Multitudes of the Jews from all lands along with the proselytes made pilgrimage to Jerusalem to celebrate the feasts of the Jewish calendar. Though the people of the nation of Israel endured a time of terrible persecution shortly after the death of Alexander the Great, they were not destroyed but stayed distinctly as God's special people.

Even until 70 A.D. the dispersed Jews in all the world returned in large numbers to observe the great Hebrew festivals which we can see in
Acts 2:1, 5-13 of the New Testament era too. This continued until Roman soldiers under Titus entered Jerusalem, slaughtered many of the citizens, and completely destroyed the temple and all its adjacent buildings. Then followed a nationwide destruction of Jewish cities and people in A.D. 135, when most surviving Jews were forced to scatter throughout the Roman Empire. Then, during the late 1800's and on into the 1900's, gradually larger groups began returning to the land of Palestine. But mainly from that time of exile in 70 A.D. and 135 A.D., those who were in exile to all the world until the nation of Israel was formed on May 14, 1948, they had no official homeland or center of worship. Through it all some of those who were in exile maintained their Jewish identity distinctly, still many others have mingled themselves with the local Gentiles and have lost their unique identity.

This doesn't mean that the real Israel
[i.e. the 10 tribes] that was dispersed by God in to Assyria and who were scattered in all the world later were already joined with the two tribes of Judah even at that time itself, but actually they were prophetically predicted by God to join together at the end times which happened when the nation of Israel was formed on May 14, 1948, when David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel to all the world (Ezek 37:15; Isa 11:11; Zech 10:3-12; Jer 23:3-8; 50:1-5). Also we see a couple of passages from the Old Testament that indicated that God who divorced the nation of Israel and Judah from being a wife (Jer 3:6-10; Ezek 23:1-10, 11-18; 2 Kings 17:16), speak of God once again being married to Israel [i.e 2 Tribes of Judah the Southern Kingdom + the 10 tribes of Israel who were the Northern Kingdom] at the time of their national revival and salvation which happened on May 14, 1948, and that which has continued to evolve even until now in to maturity for the Messiah of Israel to come and rule the whole earth very soon by keeping Jerusalem as the political capital city of Israel and as a spiritual capital city for all the world to make a pilgrimage at least once a year to receive God's blessing is being fulfilled in an ongoing way (Jer 3:11-18; Hos 2:13-23; Matt 5:35; Zech 14:9, 16, 18-19). I believe according to the Bible, Israel's history is far from over. In fact, her most glorious days still lie ahead when Messiah Jesus Christ will come to rescue it from being destroyed and then will stay with them in their own land to establish a worldwide theocratic kingdom rulership over the whole world to bring in a time of peace and an environment with full of comfort without natural calamities to strike except for the rebellious to bring them to subjection.

Yes you are right, from the time the two tribes of Judah along with the remnant of Israel that lived as one Israel regathered in their own land in 539 B.C., the two tribes along with the remnant of the 10 tribes of Israel that lived possessed the same land, until they were all scattered around the world in 70 A.D. as exactly Jesus prophesied in
Luke 21:20-24.


Were There Evidence Available In The Bible About The Other 10 Tribes Being Present During Jesus' Times, And Were They Having Record Of Their Ancestral Lineage?

We see that the greatest historian of the early Church can be none other than the writer Luke the Gentile who wrote both the Gospel of Luke and the Book of Acts, who said in his own writing that he did a thorough research to know all the truth and the facts, and then edited his own writing thoroughly to make an orderly account for the Christians, and also wrote it for all others in various areas who needed it to believe and receive eternal life of Jesus Christ and live for Him likewise as the first century Church lived in their times
(Luke 1:1-4; Acts 1:1-3). So from what Luke affirms and refers to the historical record of the genealogy of Mary the mother of Jesus and the kind of historical record of genealogy that Matthew the other gospel writer refers from his time which was actually the record of the genealogy of Joseph the supposed father of Jesus but only in a legal way as Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit actually (Luke 3:23-38; Matt 1:1-17, 20-21, 23, 24-25), we come to understand that each family must have maintained separate record of all the genealogies of their ancestors and tribes right from the time of Adam and Eve who were the first human beings created by God, as they were able to produce it to the government when they demanded the registration of it from people (Luke 2:1-5). One thing we can learn from Israel the nation is, right from the time of the beginning of all things, they were trained to meticulously keep the record of their genealogy intact because from the beginning of mankind God inspired it and again it was commanded by God through Moses of which the tradition has continued even until today I believe (Gen 4:16-24, 25-26; 5:1-32; 10:1-32; 11:10-29; Jos 24:2-3; Acts 7:1-2; 25:1-5, 12-16; 36:1-43; 46:8-27; Num 1:1-54; 2:1-34; 3:1-4, 14-39, 40-51; 4:34-49; 26:1-65; 34:16-29; 36:6-13).

A record of one's ancestors, either the line of natural descent from father to son, or the line in which, by the laws, the inheritance descended, or that preserved in the public records. Never was a nation more careful to preserve their genealogies than the Hebrews, for on them rested the distinction of tribes, the ownership of lands, and the right to the highest offices and privileges
(1 Chronicles 5:1,17; 9:1; 2 Chron 12:15; Ezra 2:62). Hence their public tables of genealogies were kept secure amid all vicissitudes. We find in the Bible a record carried on for more than 3,500 years (1 Chronicles 1:1-54; 3:1-24; 6:1-81), and thus were guarded the proofs that Christ was born according to prophecy of the seed of Abraham, and heir to the throne of his father David (Luke 1:32; 2 Timothy 2:8; Hebrews 7:14).

David's division of priests and Levites into courses and companies were determined and recorded at his time
(1 Chronicles 6-9); is referred to in the account of Jeroboam's reign (2 Chronicles 12:15 margin, "the words of Iddo, after the manner of genealogies"); is made prominent in Hezekiah's reforms when he reckoned the whole nation by genealogies (1 Chronicles 4:41 2 Chronicles 31:16-19); is seen in Jotham's reign when the Reubenites and Gadites are reckoned genealogically (1 Chronicles 5:17). Zerubbabel took a census, and settled the returning exiles according to their genealogies (1 Chronicles 3:19-24; 1 Chronicles 9; Ezra 2; Nehemiah 7; Nehemiah 11; Nehemiah 11 12). With the rigid exclusion of all foreign inter-mixtures by the leaders of the Restoration (Ezra 10; Nehemiah 10:30; Nehemiah 13:23-31), the genealogical interest naturally deepened until it reached its climax, perhaps in the time of Christ and up to the destruction of Jerusalem.

The public records, which Josephus the first-century
(i.e. 37-100 A.D.) Romano-Jewish secular scholar, historian and hagiographer [i.e. biographer], who was born in Jerusalem —then part of Roman Judea — to a father of priestly descent and a mother who claimed royal ancestry, says the genealogies of families of Jews were scrupulously kept down to his day, but perished with the ruin of the Jews as a nation. It is now, therefore, impossible for any pretended Messiah to prove his descent from David. Josephus, in the opening of his Life, states that his own pedigree was registered in the public records. Many families in Christ's time clearly possessed such lists (Luke 1:5, etc.). Paul's statement of his own descent which was from Benjamin; Barnabas' Levitical descent, are cases in point (Rom 11:1; Php 3:5; Acts 4:36). There was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser is found (Luke 2:36). Jesus Himself was found to be of the the tribe of Judah, the Root of David (Heb 7:14; Rev 5:5). Again Paul the apostle speaks of those twelve tribes that was present and lived during his time, when he was defending his right to speak the good news of the gospel to them all (Acts 26:7). Jesus also mentioned in one of his discourse that the twelve tribes that was present in his time, upon which his disciples with Him will one day rule in the age to come with God's authority in His Kingdom (Matt 19:28; Luke 22:30). The writer of the Gospel of the Book of Matthew describes Jesus as entering the city of "Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim" which clearly points to us that the settlement of the tribe of "Zabulon" and "Nephthalim" were present with their genealogies and boundaries during the time Jesus did his earthly ministry on earth. The tribes of Ephraim and Dan are not found in the New Testament. Only 5 tribes are mentioned in some book other than Revelation. As we have established the fact that there was meticulous record of all the tribes during the time of the first century in which Christ Jesus and the early Church were present, here is the evidence that all the 12 tribes were present during that time. When James the apostle was writing to the Jewish people of the first century, without any doubt whether any tribe in the twelve was missing, he introduced himself and said, "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting." (James 1:1).

Also in the first chapter of 1 Peter 1:1 the Apostle opens with greetings to the
"sojourners of the dispersion" or "exiles of the dispersion" depending on which translation you have. The KJV uses the term “strangers scattered” which may not be the best translation or understanding of what the original Greek is saying because the word diaspora, (Strong’s 1290) has a specific meaning and translates “Israelite resident in Gentile countries.” The people Peter is addressing are in a state of exile as strangers in all the nations of the world from the nation of Israel, and therefore are the 12 tribes of Israel who are living abroad but are looking forward to the Messianic regathering as citizens of Israel again (Acts 2:1, 5-12, 36-37, 38-39, 40). Thus the Old Testament and New Testament genealogies bring the record down from the creation to the birth of Christ and the existence of all the 12 tribes of Israel during His time and later till the existence of apostles of Jesus Christ.

But in the Book of Revelation we see John the revelator revealing that in the end time, God will separate 12000 each from all the 12 tribes of Israel adding up to hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel
(Rev 7:3, 4-5), who will be sealed on their foreheads by God to be a witness for the gospel of Jesus Christ to Israel and to the rest of the world that will watch them during the Tribulation of the end (Rev 7:3). These seal of the living God will be placed by an angel ascending from the east upon the foreheads of the servants of God supernaturally right from heaven before the great Tribulation will start (Rev 7:2). Also the Bible reveals that in the New Jerusalem, upon the 12 gates of the city, the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel will be written in each gate individually (Rev 21:12).

So now we know in the nation of Israel all the 12 tribes should be present at least in some percentage though they themselves might not have the record of genealogical proof for it, which actually has already happened and is happening more and more as more Jews from around the world are migrating back to their homeland from which their ancestors have been scattered by the Lord for their disobedience to Him in the times past.

To your question, how do the present day people of Israel after having been scattered for nearly two thousand years and many of them after having been mingled with other cultural people either on their father's side or on their mother's side, will be able to tell to which tribe they belong during the tribulation period? If this lack of clarity about their own tribal identity continues, how does God separate the twelve tribes apart in
Rev 7:4-8 before the tribulation time begins? Can the tribal identity be found out through some of the latest Bio-technologies using DNA samples of a Jewish person?

The present day people of Israel mostly do not still maintain their record of genealogy and have lost it mostly when they were completely driven out on 70 A.D. from Jerusalem by the Roman soldiers. Still a small percentage of them have the roots of their ancestors intact through the tradition passed on by their forefathers and their practice of it through the law. A citizen of the modern state of Israel is called an Israeli. Israeli nationality law deals with the Right of Return for Jewish diaspora mainly. The Law of Return grants all Jews the right to immigrate to Israel and almost automatic Israeli citizenship upon arrival in Israel. In the 1970's the Law of Return was expanded to grant the same rights to the spouse of a Jew, the children of a Jew and their spouses, and the grandchildren of a Jew and their spouses, provided that the Jew did not practice a religion other than Judaism willingly. It is noteworthy that even during the years when Messianic soldiers were still fighting for equal opportunities, a 1988 poll published in the Jerusalem Post found that 78% of Israelis were in favor of Messianic Jews immigrating to Israel under the Law of Return, as long as they could prove Jewish lineage and were willing to serve in the IDF. For three decades and more, Messianic Israelis have demonstrated that they can serve in their country to protect it, not in spite of but rather because of their passionate faith in Yeshua the Messiah who is going to come. This has not only resulted in IDF
(Israeli Defence Force) to get help from these Messianic people of the way, but also their willingness to hear their testimony about the Yeshua the Israel's Messiah more openly. Praise the Lord!    

Already the bio-laboratories have DNA test that provides you with clear evidence of whether you have Jewish roots. A lot of people are able to relate to their own tribal blood of Jewish roots like Ashkenazi meaning 'Germany', Levi or a Cohen by taking these DNA tests. Based on ones specific genetic characteristics, these laboratories are able to identify whether a person is of Jewish descent, which line the Jewish descent is from (paternal, maternal or both lines) and even to what percentage a person is Jewish. In addition, their profiles are compared with more than 700,000 people in the laboratories database. If they find a genetic match, i.e., people with whom they correspond genetically, these laboratory will help them contact these people and intensify their family research.


Is Judaism More Than A Religion? Is There A Jewish Gene Or Only God Fearing People That Matters To God?

Ethnic groups who marry among themselves for generations are genetically "linked". It is scientifically undisputed that there are genetic patterns that occur frequently in Jews. Jews have developed over the centuries a certain degree of genetic homogeneity that becomes visible in a DNA-test. Having said the above fact, still the Jewish People, however, is not entirely genetically separable. So no test can give you an unambiguous proof. Nevertheless a genealogical DNA test can confirm a Jewish origin at present. The potential move to legally recognize genetic tests for Jewishness could equally shift some of the authority away from the rabbis, and toward scientists, who may recognize secular manifestations of Jewish identity. So there is a ongoing advancement both scientifically and religiously seeking to establish a criteria of how to define the Jewishness of those who immigrate back to Israel.

I do not believe that a lack of clarity about their own tribal identity will continue with the Jews, because breathtaking advances in both science and religion will merge together to bring a positive end, at least to some extent before God intervenes to separate 12000 from each of the twelve tribes of Israel before the Great Tribulation of the end starts
(Rev 3:10). I believe that genealogical conformity to a particular gene in itself cannot make someone a Jew, but it is their belief in one Jehovah God and their conformity and adherence to law of Moses only can make them to become a Jew, which in fact should lead them to Jesus Christ if they are going to be eternally blessed (Rom 2:13, 25, 28-29; Gal 3:7, 24). A true Jew will be the one who is Messianic and follows the Word of God with zealous zeal of obedience. As we know, the House of Israel forgot that they were part of the Jehovah's chosen people and eventually came to view themselves as part of those nations where they were living, now after the regathering of all 12 tribes as one nation for the second time, only He has the full ability to identify their tribe and bring them back in to their chosen tribal identity to again make them conscious that they are Jehovah's chosen people and not part of the Gentile nations of the world where they have lived for the last 2000 years in the state of exile due to their own disobedience.

God in His omniscience knows the end from the beginning because he is the one who has everything planned for Himself and executes for His Glory, so supernaturally by Divine knowledge and wisdom
(Psa 144:3; 139:15-16; Matt 10:30), God will separate 12000 from each of the 12 tribes and will use them during the Tribulation to be the servants of God to spread the message of the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah and His coming Kingdom. Even if the genetics of a Jew matches in a bio-lab, but yet if they do not have faith in Jehovah they cannot remain a Jew and claim citizenship in Israel. No matter how much a human tries he cannot perfectly succeed in streamlining the tribal identity of the Jews, because God the Messiah is the reason behind the very existence of the tribes of Israel. Only when God in His Glory is present in the midst of the tribal camp, the tribes of Israel can not only be identified to be streamlined around God in all direction, but also can move forward unitedly to make an impact in the world around them (Num 1:5-19; 2:2). So the bottom line is, God will be the one who will streamline the tribal identity of Israel and will show to the world what it means to make Israel again a blessing to all the Gentiles of the whole world. Without doubt there is a blessing in Jewish Gene, but the blessing follows only those people who have the fear of God within them that will cause them to move in faith towards God that works together with love in their lives. GLORY TO GOD! Praise the Lord!

Much Blessings....
