Abraham, Father of MANY NATIONS–But Which Nations Are They?

The Lost Tribes of Israel have to be in the earth today.  They are only lost to those who do not have an ear to hear and an eye to see. 

Scholars say that after being taken into captivity around 720 B.C., they were totally dispersed and never heard from again.  They say that they melted into all of the other peoples of the earth and that they no longer exists as the direct descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (whose name was changed by God to Israel).

That simply cannot be true, for many prophecies in scripture say that these descendants of Abraham would become nations.  And not just any old run of the mill nations either.  For Abraham was told by God, face to face, “Thou shalt be a father of many nations”  (1).    

But Abraham had just one little problem; his wife was barren and he had no heir to fulfill this prophecy.  And he was running out of time, for he was about 100 years old, and his wife Sarai was 90 and well into menopause.   It was difficult to believe, but “he believed the LORD (Yahweh); and the LORD reckoned it to him as righteousness (2)

From then on, God looked on Abraham as His righteous son.  Here is the first seed lesson of what God’s faith can do–just believe God–the thing hardest for man to do.  And in that same passage God gave him and his offspring all the land from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates. 

Now, he just had to get this family started.  Still no first born son…until that day when God yet appeared to Abram again.  This time God made a covenant with Abram.  In fact God changed his name to Abraham, “for a father of many nations have I made thee.”  Many nations.   And I will be your God and “establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant,” or agreement (3).

And it was then that God blessed Sarai and changed her name to Sarah, meaning “princess,” and told her that He would give her a son “of her,” and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.” 

And their miracle son that God promised them came a year later as spoken.  And they named him Isaac.   And this great promise of nations and kings was renewed by God to Isaac.  And then Isaac blessed his son Jacob with these words: “And God Almighty bless thee, and make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, that thou mayest be a multitude of people; and give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land…which God gave unto Abraham” (4). 

Later God appeared to Jacob to renew His covenant of nations with him.  “And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins”.

Who are these “many nations”?  “Declare if thou hast understanding.”  In the seed book of Genesis, prophecies spoken by God to Abraham declare that he will be the father of many nations.  Can we discover who these nations are?  Did not Christ say, “Seek and ye shall find”?  Can we read the other prophecies about these nations that developed out of the offspring of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and come to the knowledge of just who these nations are in history?

Scripture cannot be broken, for God cannot lie.  He spoke of many nations out of Abraham.  This could not be the Jewish Israeli state, for it is only one nation, and the Jews have not been a nation since 70 A. D.  But it was “nations.”  Christ spoke of the “Lost sheep of the House of Israel.”  They are so important that He said He was only sent to them (6).  We must find out, for they are the key that unlocks the prophetic utterances for these last days.  KWH…to be continued

  1. Gene Smith

    Herbert W. Armstrong taught that the great nation and company of nations became the United States and Great Britain. Imperical anaysis of the way these English peoples have been a blessing of leadership and prosperity for the world and a bulwark against the forces of evil in 2 world wars sure backs that up. Especially when considering the special relationship of these nations to modern day Israel and the primary role they have played in world evangelism.

    • Very well put, Gene. If you get out an atlas and begin to look at all of the countries of the world and just check them off as to whether they can fulfill the prophecies in Genesis 49==Jacob’s blessings bestowed on Joseph==only Great Britain and the USA can fulfill it. It is pretty simple if a person has an open heart. But first one must believe the word that the Lost Tribes of Israel are in the earth today a la Jeremiah 31: 35.

  2. Linda

    The Anglo-Saxon race produces serial killers and rapists.
    NO sorrow comes with the blessing of the Lord and this is said in his Word!

    I do not say this to be mean. But to think that the Anglo-Saxon race is the blessing the Lord promised is the height of arrogance and pride, is also a slap in the face to Christ who alone is the Blessing God promised the world in Abraham.
    If you delete these comments go ahead I will just post them on my own site or any site where they will not be deleted.
    But the truth must be told that it is Christ alone who is the blessing IN Abraham.

    • Linda, thank you for your comments. Every race produces evil people. And you are right. Without Christ’s Spirit abiding in a person, they are lost. I totally agree.

      That does not negate the fact that “God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew” (Romans 11: 2). There is a spiritual remnant taken from His chosen people, the twelve tribes of Israel, according to the “election of grace” (v. 5). It is very important to God, for He will regather all twelve tribes in the latter days. Almost all of the old prophets spoke of this [and that cannot be the Israeli state, for they are at best only one or two tribes].

      Christ spoke of these children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel and said, “I was not sent except to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matt. 15: 24, NKJV). It reads about the same in all versions.

      And to think that you’ll be truely blessed by God without sufferings and sorrows shows a lack of understanding of the scriptures. Were the apostles and prophets of God blessed by Him? Of course, they were, and yet they were persecuted, tortured and killed by those thinking that they were doing God a service. Speaking of Christ, Isaiah wrote, “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief…” (53: 3). And Christ, we know, is “blessed forever more” (2 Cor. 11: 31). And, “Blessed [is] the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord” (John 12: 13). Linda, in all this ‘you do greatly err, not knowing the scriptures nor the power of God.’

      But I write this not in anger or to be mean, but in love. Yes, it is all in Christ, but we must have ‘all’ of Christ and His teachings. kwh

    • Israelite

      Anglo-Saxon race produces serial killers? You failed to mention over 300,000 black christians raped & then butchered by Arabs in Sudan since 2000 A.D. Or the Buddhist in China who have been murdered & had their temples turned into Mosque or the thousands of christians murdered all over the world by Muslims. Jesus said the day is coming when those who kill you will think they offer service to God. Muslims murder christians and yell Allah Akabar! which means God is Great, thinking they are offering service to God. Caucasian nations help every nation on earth in times of disaster yet none helps them when they have one. They cheer & celebrate at the downfall of any Caucasian nation. Jesus said you will be hated above all overs for my names sake. All christian nations are Caucasian nations and we are hated above all others. The world is anti-christ/anti-christian and racist and your remarks prove you are among the racist haters. Arab countries for arabs, Asian countries for Asians, Mexico for Mexicans, White nations for EVERYONE! The browns & blacks flood into white nations to get FREE handouts that can not get from their own countries & when they don’t get enough they riot in the streets & yell we will have your county & your women as booty. Jesus said if not for the days being cut short there would be none left alive. He was talking to white Israelites when he said that and the world calls for the COMPLETE genocide of every white person on earth. I never heard a white person saying that about any race. We are slaves the bible talks about that no-one will “buy”. Our tax dollars help every nation on earth and every nation on earth wants to see us dead. White people need to get back to their God and pray. Just don’t mention anything about God being white. There are thousands of black & brown God’s worshiped all over the earth and the black pharaohs even considered themselves God’s, but any mention of a single white God and the world will label you a racist and demand you be killed like the racist retard Linda. Whites have shared their wealth, farming, medical & many other technologies we invented that makes their lives easier & no matter how much we give they will always hate us. God said he would put hatred between Satan’s SEED & Eve’s SEED. It’s clear Linda is of Satan’s SEED. Only looks at white history never considering heathen nations of peoples with as much if not far more evil in their spirits than white people have. When did any of them ever help their own people much less go all over the world helping people?

  3. i believe the only nation that The Lord is speaking about is the faithful believers that share one faith, as Abraham

    • Lugena, I also believe that we believers are a holy nation, but that is the point: “one nation” is not “many nations,” as the scriptures say. And we know they cannot be broken. wh

  4. Musonda

    Israelite: not all Christian nations caucasain, there are three legally declared christian nations in the world: Great Britain, USA, and ZAMBIA. Zambia is an african country.
    This said, I agree with you when it comes aid, but there are reasons non-caucasians are hostile towards caucasians.

    • carol

      Why does race have to enter into a discussion about the coming of Christ or the deliverance of the righteous at the coming of Jesus Christ, the Savior
      and Redeemer of the world. God judges the heart of everyone of His children, which we all are. Go , therefore, and serve with all of your heart,
      might, mind and strength, all those who stand in need of the mercy and love of Christ Jesus, The Atoning One. Judge not that ye be not judged and
      found wanting. The Day of His return fast approaches…will you be found
      clean and worthy? We all have much to do to be worthy and ready to receive He who has redeemed us. Have a wonderful day each of you.

      • Carol, thank you for commenting. I agree with most all you said. However, He also said that we shall live by every word of God. Why was Christ, as big hearted and loving as He is, why did He continually speak about the “lost sheep of the House of Israel”? He said it. And when the Syro-Phenician woman, who was not from the 12 tribes, was perfectly content with eating a few crumbs of healing–after Christ told her that it was “not meet to give the children’s bread to the dogs.” Why was that whole passage included in the gospel story? Are we just to delete it and forget about it because we don’t fully understand it, or is there a lesson in it for us? Especially coupled with Christ’s statement: “I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” Are we to believe that these are meaningless words to Him? Idle words, even? I think not. In fact, we better dig in there and find out what He is saying to us in this regard, for with Him, there are no idle words. If we don’t see the significance in it, it is our shortcoming, not His. We must dig deep. The apostle James wrote his letter to “the twelve tribes scattered abroad.” John wrote down in Revelation 7 that there was something special going on with 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes. Totally insignificant? To the contrary. Carol, we must all investigate these things. Because we desire to know what He was saying in these above quotes, this does not negate nor refute God’s love and mercy for all mankind. There’s much more here than what they taught us in Sunday school. God bless. Kenneth Wayne Hancock

  5. Everyone started brown skin anyway but to say that one race will be saved or blessed is ignorant . God rules over the just and the unjust too, GOD is not a man that he should lie. He is our creator our fear our everything He loved us so to give our ungrateful filthy rags a chance to be with him . I thank him for that I praise him for that evil is evil yes the Anglo-Saxon race have killed stolen and destroyed a great deal but so have others sinned also .yes we know for fact that Jesus was not blond and blued eyed ,but even thought he was another color (petty) smh . He died and rose for us all no get over your foolish digs and worship a the God of all .

    • Sedrick, thanks for your comment. Yes, God is no respecter of persons; all who repent of their sinful ways and believe on Him shall be saved. That is scripture, truth and cannot be broken. But He has promised in His word that there will be a first fruits unto Him during this final age before He returns to earth to establish His real government right here on earth. They will be those who will bear the 100 fold fruit (see the parable of the sower in Matt. 13). They are not the little “children of God, tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine.” They have rather grown up to be like Christ, along the lines of Peter, John, and Paul–except they will, as the latter rain recipients, receive immortality and will rule with Him in the 1000 year reign of Christ. The point: the scriptures are very clear that although every family of earthlings may be saved and become children of God, His 100 folders will come out of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel. Christ did say that He was only sent to them: “I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel.” My job, Sedrick, is to help them become aware of their calling. I in no way disparage God’s 30 fold children nor His 60 fold fruitbearers. I just want to help the 100 folders become aware of their calling. I hope this helps you see the misunderstanding here. God bless. Kenneth Wayne Hancock [P.S. Incidentally, for the record, which is recorded in the holy scriptures, David, the ancestor of Christ, was of a "ruddy" complexion (I Sam. 17: 42); this "ruddy" comes from the Hebrew word "adam" meaning "able to blush." This may seem "petty" to you, Sedrick, but it is not an idle word, but these are inspired words of God. You brought it up...

      I agree on people other than white have killed also. The oldest human remains found in north america have been Caucasian, not Indian. One Indian tribe wrote they found red headed white people in ancient times here and killed them all…Genocide. China came out with a news reel that they found the oldest human remains ever found in China and they were Caucasian, not Chinese. The oldest Budda Statues in china are Negro not chinese yet no Negro human remains have been fould that are older than the Caucasian remains. Could it be whites were there first & blacks came in killed the white men and raped the white women and produced the milky white asians to the darkest asians? The darker they get the more Negro they look. Nimrod came thru Ham and was black and an evil world ruler. It has been said he hated white people and often burned them alive in fire. Nahmaah (spelling?) told him that by eating the fair skin decendants of Shem they could regain their superior qualities. The Olmec Heads in s. america are also Negro as well as many of the pharoahs of egypt. Seems the Negro thru Nimrod covered the whole earth at one time but all signs of white people in ancient times have been destroyed. The world says Great White Satan but I believe there is a Great Black Satan myself and that white men have always been destroyed in ancient times by the dark races so they could take the white women. I for one am getting tired of being called a devil by a bunch of what I believe to be Satan’s seed.

      Genesis 3:15
      And I will cause enmity=hostility=Hatred=Racism between you (The serpent) and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.

  6. James W. Maxey

    Most people cannot handle the truth. Yah said He change not. No matter how hard you want the Hebrew Israelites to be white they are not. The so-called African American are the true Hebrew Israelites and the so-called bible says so. Read Amos 9:7 need I say anymore. Why do people want to be who they are not? We know what nations Ham is the father of. And we know what nations Yapheth is the father of all white nation and Abraham is the father of all other nations on the earth. I am a so-called African American and I am a Hebrew Israelite. Ye shall know the truth and the truth will set you free. Can you handle the trtuh?

    • James, thanks for the comment. We must remember the overriding truth from God’s law–the law of harvest. Or, to put it another way, Each seed bears its own kind. That law was in existence at the very beginning of Genesis, long before Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel. Wouldn’t you agree? Whatever one sows, that shall he also reap. If Ham was black then so were Shem and Japheth, and, of course, so was their father and mother, Noah and Naamah. Members of modern Churchianity, like layers of sedentary sedimentation, just believe what they are told and rarely think for themselves.

      James, think about it. You as an African American, do you really believe that you will be the progenitor of a red-haired frecklefaced Caucasian child or a Pacific Islander child, or I from Anglo-Saxon stock be the father of a lovely Cherokee Native American baby. It will never happen in a million years. Never.

      Because of the law of harvest, Noah, his wife and three sons were all of the same race. Period. Or God’s fundamental law of harvest is false. We must now go on in our studies from this starting point–that each seed bears its own kind. This article explains more: http://immortalityroad.wordpress.com/2010/01/14/four-misconceptions-about-christianity-when-the-earth-was-created-pre-adamites-noahs-flood-and-the-difference-between-jews-and-israelites/

      All this notwithstanding, I think it better for us as Christian brothers to rather rejoice that our names are written in heaven and that God “has broken down the middle wall of partition” that has separated all the races as they are all welcome in His kingdom. We all, in Christ, can partake of His divine nature as His people. This, however, does not negate His national promises to His “people whom He hath foreknown.” Bless you, James. KWHancock

      African American are the true Hebrew Israelites? Can I handle the truth? God made a covenant to Abraham Isaac & Jacob. He told Abraham, Also your descendants shall be as the dust of the earth; you shall spread abroad to the west and the east, to the north and the south; and in you and in your seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed (Genesis 28:14). Who preaches the gospel to the world? I am God Almighty. Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a “company of nations” shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body (Genesis 35:11). He changed Abram’s name to Abraham because he was going scatter his seed all over the earth to become many nations & many kings. God said Israel would have control of the seas. What african ships control the seas? Israel was to be the stewards of God’s word. The Negro never even heard the gospel till around 300 to 500 years ago. Same with the Indians & Asians. Whites have always had God’s word in their hands & took into every nation they went. Jesus said, you will be hated above all others for my names sake. All Christian white nations are hated by the world. What blacks are hated by the whole earth for being christians? The 12 tribes of Israel are none other than the Caucasian race. In 740 B.C. the arabs drove 10 of the 12 tribes out of Israel in a war and the survivors ran north into the Caucus Mountains were they stayed almost 100 years & called themselves Caucasians. The other 2 tribes were living in Judea at the time. Most all the bible says about Israelites fit white people to a T. All I have found that fit blacks is the slavery verses in Deut. But whites have been slaves and have virtually no ancient history. Satan has been working very hard to destroy the Adamite seed from earth. The flood was because very few Adamites Noah & family were left uncontaminated from race mixing. The flood was not to kill sinners just to re-populate the world with more sinners again. What be the point in that besides making god look like a fool with no foreknowledge that the world would become the same again, “full of sinners”? The Messiah who will crush Satan’s head had to be pure Adamite but Satan’s contamination of the Adamite seed in attempt to keep that from happening almost worked. But the contamination continued after the flood when the Nephilim returned. So it was in the days of Noah, so will it be when the Messiah returns. Few white Adamites left on earth and the rest of the world of mixed race.

  7. Thanks For Sharing this nice Topic

    Finally, Paul tells us who the true seed of Abraham is and the nature of that promise. We learned earlier that the Seed of Abraham was singular, one person, i.e. Christ.
    Next Paul says, “For you are all the sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus for as many of you as we baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal. 3:26-29).
    Those who accept God by faith and are baptized into Him become a part of that one Seed of Abraham who is Christ . We become one Seed with Christ, not many seeds, but one with Him. As the Seed of Abraham through Christ, we then become heirs/inherit the promise. The promise is salvation in Christ, i.e. the kingdom of God. See the post “Flesh and Blood Cannot Inherit the Kingdom of God.” The true seed of Abraham is Christ and the inheritance is the salvation in him to all nations (families of the earth) who are blessed in Him.

    • What you have written is correct. Yet, that does not negate the national promises that Yahweh made to His “chosen” people, the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel. Christ said that He was “not sent but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel” [think 10 lost tribes of the Kingdom of Israel]. James wrote his book to the “twelve tribes scattered abroad.” I wonder why, if it does not matter? John wrote in Revelation about 12,000 from each of the tribes of Israel for these last days; no idle words of God–inspired by God and written down by the apostle. If it does not matter, then why is it in there, not to mention the prophetic blessings by Moses on the 12 tribes for the latter days in Deut. 33, especially vs. 13-17? Only one country could fulfill that in all of history. I could go on and on all day, but you have to do something with all of these passages if what you say is all of the truth on the matter. No, you need to realize that there are three stages of Christian spiritual growth that makes room for every one (Parable of the Sower), and there is a national blessing, for God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. kwh

  8. Tribe of Judah

    I think all of you are wrong. Who is Esau? What races came out of Esau? What color is he? Who are Esau’s slaves even till this day? When you look for the Israelites, you don’t look for the rulers of these countries you look for the slaves and captives. They will be poor, crazy, and in prison. What race of people are captives in a land that is not theirsfor over 400 years? What did God tell Abraham, Moses, Jeremiah and every other Israelite about the chosen serving slavery and being taken on slaveships? Where are the two Egypts that the Bible speaks of? Who are the people God hates.What does Deuteronomy 28:64-68 mean? Is that for all people? Did Jesus die for all people? What was given the Bible and why? I have to put you indoctrinated people back in context with the scriptures… What Color is Jesus and his people?
