Tracking Israel

Tracking Israel
It is important to know where the tribes of Israel migrated to because in order to be able to make any sense out of the many prophecies about what will happen to national Israel just before Christ’s return, it is necessary to have some understanding of who and where the tribes of Israel are today. The names of the land are modern names we can all lookup on the map to see where Israel is today.

(Maps of the ‘Kingom of Judah and Israel’ and of the migration of the Tribes of Israel are below the article)

Tribe Possible Identity
Asher Republic of South Africa

Benjamin Norway

Dan Ireland

Ephraim Britain and U.K.

other Israelite nations.

The Apostles were sent first to preach to the tribes of Israel, and then to the Gentiles. Now lets take a look at where the Apostles travelled so that we may determine the distance the tribes travelled and where they ended up.

Simon Peter: British Isles, Babylon (Western Mediterranean)

Paul: Antioch, Syria, Rome, Italy, Britian, British Isles, Spain, France, Mesopatamia, Eastern Mediterranean

Andrew: Scythia (Todays Russia), Cappadocia, Upper Galatia, Bithynia, Chalcedon, Nicodemia, Amastris, Sinope, Amynsus, Abasgi (in Caucasus (Modern Scots and Anglo-Saxons)), Sarmatia (Asiatic Scythia (Asia Minor)), Cherson

Simon the Zealot: Egypt, Cyrene, Mauritania, Libya, Western British Isles (Ireland)

James, Son of Alphaeus: Spain, Britian, Ireland

Thomas: Parthia (Southern shores of Caspian Sea), Medes, Persia, Carmans, Hyrcani, Bactrians – (todays Iran and Afghanistan), India

Bartholomen: Parthia (southern shores of Caspian Sea), Medes, Persia, Carmans, Hyrcani, Bactrians – (todays Iran and Afghanistan), India, Armenia, Upper Phrygia (todays Turkey)

Jude: Assyria, Mesopotamia

Philip: Scythia (todays Russia), Asia Minor

Matthew: Parthia (southern shores of Caspian Sea), Asiatic Ethiopia

Matthias: Romania, Macedonia

John: France

As we can see, due to persecution and being ran out of their land, the tribes of Israel travelled some great distances to ensure safety for themselves. It is also, in my oppinion, fair to suggest that Christians are in fact the Israelite peoples. Regardless the name of the religion, God calls His people Israel. Jesus Christ came to round up His people, Israel, and bring them back to the Truth as many have gone astray. It was not until after His death that followers of Christ were given the title of Christian. Upto that point, they were calling themselves Messiah-followers or Christ-followers. Either way you look at it, Christians are of the same brethren, Israel.

Going by immigration to the United States of America, I believe it is fair to conclude members of each tribe of Israel reside in the United States.

The twelve tribes of Israel are named after the sons of Jacob (Jacob was renamed Israel in Genesis 32). Levi, though one of the sons of Israel, is usually omitted from Biblical passages listing the tribes. This is because the Levites were priests consecreated to serve God. Instead of giving them an inheritance of land in Palestine, God gave the Levites the tithes and offerings paid by the other tribes of Israel (Numbers 18, etc.).
The Kingdom of Israel, also known as the Northern Ten Tribes of Israel, is composed of the tribes of Asher, Dan, Ephraim, Gad, Issachar, Manasseh, Naphtali, Reuben, Simeon and Zebulon. The Kingdom of Judah, also known as the Southern Kingdom, is composed of the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and the priestly tribe of Levi.

Not all Israelites are Jewish. In the Bible it speaks of the division of tribes. Parts of the tribes that made up the Kingdom of Judah left their belief in God to worship idols.

2 Chronicles 11:11-17 KJV
And he fortified the strong holds, and put captains in them, and store of victual, and of oil and wine. And in every several city he put shields and spears, and made them exceeding strong, having Judah and Benjamin on his side. And the priests and the Levites that were in all Israel resorted to him out of all their coasts. For the Levites left their suburbs and their possession, and came to Judah and Jerusalem: for Jeroboam and his sons had cast them off from executing the priest’s office unto the Lord: And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made. And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto the Lord God of their fathers. So they strengthened the kingdom of Judah, and made Rehoboam the son of Solomon strong, three years: for three years they walked in the way of David and Solomon.

So you see some Israelites became paganistic. Many pagan beliefs spawned other faiths, including Islam. Mohammed chose Allah, the moon god, because that was his favorite of the 360 gods his family and society worshipped. Though he had much influence from the Catholics in the region as well. So it is very possible that many participants of other faiths, including Islam, are Israelites. They need to hear Gods Word so that they may be saved and come home to the Father. Islam is the religion of Satan (as pointed out in the article “the Bible and Islam”), therefore they are rightfully so our enemy as they are not of Israel. However, during the conquest of Islam throughout history many were forced to convert to Islam.

Considering this fact, it is fair to suggest a small number of our brethren are held captive in the grasps of Satans counterfeit religion. It is our duty then, to preach the Gospel to any and all Muslims and offer them a safe way out of Islam (as converting out of Islam is punishable by death under Sharia law), and bring our brethren back to God before they end up suffering eternal damnation with Satan and his demons. There are only two types of people on this planet. Gods and Satans. Islam is a false religion that doubles as Satans army. Many believe the battle is only spiritual. The battle is as much physical as it is spiritual. Do not allow yourselves to be decieved.

You may have a hard time accepting the information set forth in this article, but that is only because Western Christianity allowed itself to become perverted. There is only but one Truth and one way to be Christian.

Before one can understand how to be Christian or what a Christian is, you must know and understand the roots of Christianity. That is the purpose of this and future articles, Spiritual Messiah Ministries, and the Spiritual Truth movement; to return Christianity to its roots and save our brethren from paganistic views and falsehoods.
