Here is a Webpage with information on the Lost/Scattered Tribes of Israel.
DOES PROPHECY CONCERNING THE ISRAEL TRIBE OF MANASSEH HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE USA?
Here is a question concerning the USA. Does much of its population come from the Lost Tribes of Israel, in particular, the Tribe of Manasseh? It is pretty
much evident from historical documents, that it does. There is documentation that Ephraim's migration has been traced to England. (Dr. E. Raymond Capt's "THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT") Zebulun's migration has been traced to Holland (Helene Koppejan's "STRANGE PARALLEL") Adam Rutherford's "ICELAND'S GREAT INHERITANCE", traces the Tribe of Benjamin to Iceland. Eleven of the twelve Disciples were from that Tribe.
You can find documents in the libraries of the world concerning this matter. Believing the validity of these historical documents does not make one a supremacist or a hatemonger or anti-semitic. So if much of the population of the USA and other countries of the world come from the Tribes of Israel, any promises or admonishing from God to the Tribes would apply to that same population through to the End of the Age and throughout the Millennium.
(PLEASE NOTE: Any person of any race or nation may be saved by calling on the Name of Jesus Christ and trusting Him for salvation and redemption. Acts 2:21 – “Whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” Revelation 22:17 – “And let him that is athirst come. And whosever will, let him take the Water of Life freely.” John 14:6 – “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man comes unto the Father but by Me.” Revelation 7:9-10 - "After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." This Webpage is about the people of the 10 Tribes of the House of Israel, who they are, and the fact that the majority of them are blind as to who they are. ALSO PLEASE NOTE: Yes - God certainly knows where and who they are. ALSO PLEASE NOTE: This is not saying that the Church is Israel or that Israel is the Church.)
NOTE: Those who are considered Jewish people today come mostly from the Tribe of Judah.
PROMISES TO ISRAEL
Genesis 17:4 - “As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations”. Genesis 17:5 - “Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made the”. Genesis 17:6 - “And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and kings shall come out of thee” Genesis 17:7 - “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” Genesis 13:16 - “And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be.” Genesis 28:14 - “And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” Genesis 15:5 - “And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.” Genesis 22:17 - “That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;” Genesis 32:12 - “And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude”
Notice the words: NATIONS, SAND, STARS, DUST, KINGS, NORTH, EAST, WEST and SOUTH. The small country of Israel today would not in any way qualify as a fulfillment of these prophecies.

THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL
WHO THEY ARE
AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: Any person of any race or nation may be saved by calling on the Name of Jesus Christ and trusting Him for salvation and redemption. Acts 2:21 – “Whosoever shall call on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.” Revelation 22:17 – “And let him that is athirst come. And whosever will, let him take the Water of Life freely.” John 14:6 – “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man comes unto the Father but by Me.”
This article is about the people of the 10 Tribes of the House of Israel, who they are, and the fact that the majority of them are blind as to who they are and to the historical and biblical significance of such knowledge.
JUDAH AND ISRAEL BECAME 2 SEPARATE KINGDOMS
Judah and Israel (approximately13,000,000 people) became two distinct kingdoms/peoples during Old Testament times. (1 Kings 11:32,35 Jeremiah 11:10,17 Jeremiah 50:4)
After 931 BC, the 10 northern Tribes became know as the House of Israel and the 2 southern Tribes, Judah and Benjamin, became known as the House of Judah. In 721BC, the House of Israel was taken captive to Assyria (2 Kings 17:18,23) and 135 years later the House of Judah (approximately 2,000,000 people) was taken captive to Babylonia.
ONLY THE HOUSE OF JUDAH RETURNS
70 years later, the House of Judah (approximately 40,000 people) returned to the land (Palestine) now known as Israel, but the 10 Tribes, the House of Israel, (approximately 11,000,000 people) did not. Amos 9:9 tells us – “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.”
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 10 TRIBES, THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL?
Where did the 10 Tribes go?
James 1:1 - "James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting."
2 Esdras 13:41-45 (an Apocrypha book) says – “But they formed this plan among themselves, to leave the heathen population, and go to a more distant region, where the human race had never lived …. they went by the narrow passage of the Euphrates River …. it was a long journey of a year and a half to that country.” (Micah 2:13)
Around 70 AD, Josephus, the Jewish historian wrote – “The Ten Tribes did not return to Palestine; only two Tribes served the Romans after Palestine became a Roman Province. …. the Ten Tribes are beyond the Euphrates till now, and are an immense multitude.”
They then went West and North (Deuteronomy 32:8 Isaiah 49:12) of there, considered as going into the wilderness. Hosea 2:14 – “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.” Ezekiel 20:35 – “And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.” (1 Chronicles 17:9)
The House of Israel, the 10 Tribes as a whole, is not in the land of Israel now. Ezekiel 11:16 – “Therefore say, Thus says the Lord God; Although I have cast them far off among the nations, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.”
The countries afar off to the North and West that they went to, are France, Germany, Holland, Sweden, England, America, Canada and Iceland, etc.
In this new land and into the many other countries West and North of there where the House of Israel, the 10 Tribes, would eventually settle, they lost sight of who they were. Romans 11:7-8, 25 - “What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeks for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded" “(According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.” “For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” (Isaiah 44:18 Isaiah 42:16 Jeremiah 50:6 Deuteronomy 29:28 Deuteronomy 32:26)
They are not remembered by their name. (Hosea 2:17)
THEY RECEIVE A NEW NAME – WHAT IS IT?
Hosea 1:10 – “Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”
In America, Canada, England and elsewhere today, those of the 10 Tribes in these countries, are not being called the House of Israel, but those who have turned to Christ as their Savior, are called the sons of the Living God, Christians. (1 John 3:1)
Romans 9:26 - "And it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people; there shall they be called the children of the living God." Romans 9:27 - "Isaiah also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be saved:"
What Happens to the House of Israel in the Latter End/Days? Deuteronomy 31:29 and 32:28-29.
An Attack on the House of Israel and on the Land of Israel?
Ezekiel 38:9 -12,16 ---- Verses: 9 - "You shall ascend and come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you" 10 - "Thus says the Lord God; It shall also come to pass, that at the same time shall things come into your mind, and you shall think an evil thought:" 11 - "And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them THAT ARE AT REST, THAT DWELL SAFELY, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates," 12 - "To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn your hand upon the desolate places that are now inhabited, and UPON THE PEOPLE THAT ARE GATHERED OUT OF THE NATIONS, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land." 16 - "And you shall come up against my MY PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, as a cloud to cover the land; it shall be in the LATTER DAYS, and I will bring you against MY LAND, that the heathen may know Me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes."
Could there be an end time attack on more than one front?
Deliverance by the KING, the ROOT and OFFSPRING OF DAVID!!
We know that when the strength of His people is at the lowest ebb and their power is gone, He shall come and deliver them. Deuteronomy 32:36, 43
North and West:
The 10 Tribes then went West and North (Deuteronomy 32:8 Isaiah 49:12) of there, considered as going into the wilderness. Hosea 2:14 - “Therefore, behold, I will allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak comfortably unto her.” Ezekiel 20:35 - “And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there will I plead with you face to face.” (1 Chronicles 17:9)
As suggested in a reference book, take a globe and see the countries that cover the area that is between the North and West of the Euphrates. Very interesting!!
