Question? Why is the Tribe of Dan missing in Rev. Chp, 7:5-8?
Revelation 7:5-8 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. (6) Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. (7) Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. (8) Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
They were THE FIRST tribe from the Nation of Israel to DISOBEY (apostasy) God’s command to not worship Idols(False Gods – graven images). READ Judges 18:30,3.
Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
Deuteronomy 4:23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
Although the the Tribe of Dan DISOBEYED God and ARE NOT mentioned as one of the 12 Tribes In Revelation Chp. 7 that the 144,00 will be chosen from to be sent out to evangelize the world during the 7 year Tribulation Period, God is still going to give them their portion of land in the promise land in the Millennial Kingdom that he promised to them as recorded in Ezekiel Chp. 48:1…
Ezekiel 48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazarenan, the border of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; for these are his sides east and west; a portion for Dan.
This is a beautiful illustration of the fact that you can NEVER LOSE your salvation.
When you have placed your faith ALONE in what Jesus did for you on Calvary, YOU CANNOT get yourself unsaved. If you could, that would make God unfaithful and a liar. According to John 3:16 and 18, you will not perish, you will have everlasting life, and you will not come into condemnation.”
John 3:16,18 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him SHOULD NOT perish, BUT HAVE everlasting life. (18) He that believeth on him IS NOT CONDEMNED: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
