Lost Tribes of Israel in Earth Today–Three Scriptural Proofs

     Proof #1: An end-time prophecy in the book of Revelation puts the lost sheep of the whole House of Israel—12 tribes—in the earth in the last days. 

     In chapter 7 we read of 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes being sealed as the servants of God.  “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel” (7:4).  And then he begins to list them by the specific names of the tribes of Israel.  Some say that these are all Jews.  This is impossible, for the Jews of the lineage of Abraham were comprised of only two the the twelve tribes, Judah and Benjamin.

     Question: If the 12 tribes of Israel are no longer in the earth or are no longer recognizable as such, then how are they to be found and sealed in the latter days?

 Proof #2: Yahweh will cause the house of Israel to wander among all nations.

      “For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the earth” (Amos 9:9).  The word “sift” is from #5128 in Strong’s Hebrew, meaning “to wander, move.”  In fact, it is translated “wander” and “move” in several passages such as Numbers 32:13: “He made them wander in the wilderness.”

     All authorities agree that the passage in Amos speaks of the last days—a time of destruction for the wicked and a time of restoration for the people of God.  “Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from off the face of the earth; saving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the LORD” (Amos 9:8).  Here the evil empires of the earth will come down, but God will spare certain of the tribes of Israel.  They will be recognizable; they will be in tact.  They will be known by God and by the world at that time.

 

Proof # 3: The Savior Yahshua, when sending his twelve disciples out in Matthew 10, was sending them out as a type and shadow of what will take place in the future.  The lost sheep of the House of Israel are to be the target audience of the end time preaching of the kingdom of heaven.  In fact, the Master tells them to not go to the Gentiles or the Samaritans, but to go to the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 

     He then commissions, empowers, and instructs them.  But it is not only for them; it is actually written for those of us who will come in to work in his vineyard in these latter days.  How do we know that all of this in Matthew 10 is for us?  The answer is found in verse 23.  “Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.”

     Two points emerge here.  First, by this time, the cities of the northern Kingdom of Israel are not inhabited by Israelites.  By 721 B. C. the Assyrians had emptied the cities of Israel and had deported them to upper Mesopotamia.  The Assyrians had then brought in people from their cities to repopulate the Israelite cities.  Seven centuries later, the disciples could not physically have gone to the new cities that the dispersed Israelites had migrated to—not in that short time frame.  Besides, they did not know where they were; they were lost.

    Thank you, sister, for your comments and your encouragement. I will in the very near future have the opportunity to “prove all things” presented. It is important to do this and it takes time. Please bear with me…Wayneman

    My husband and I received this truth a few years ago when we were given the book, The Other End of the World by Roger Rusk. It was the only piece that didn’t smack of white supremacy and hatred. I just stumbled across your site looking into more about the lost tribes of Isreal. Thank you for such great research and gentle presentation. This is a revealed truth verified by scripture. However, it is a hard truth for those so indoctrinated by popular thinking! God has opened many doors for us to share this truth with those ready to hear it and we are grateful. Keep up your good and excellent research! It is invaluable to those of us who know and believe.

    • Thank you, Mark and Deborah for your very encouraging comment on the Lost Tribes of Israel. The adversary has made it very difficult to expound on these matters, but that is the challenge that sets before us. It seems it may be a litmus test; some cannot seem to pass it, for fear of what other men may think. The truth shall make us free of fear. Continue on in your walk with Him and may He bless you in it. Please feel free to drop by again and make comments. KWHancock
