  • 1. Dr Joel’sBIBLE CLASSICS
  • 2. Jacob had 12 sons & the 12 Tribes of Israel came from them
  • 3. Who were they? Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, D an, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issac har, Zebulun, Joseph & Benjamin Genesis 46
  • 4. But when we come to the end of the Bible, we find that the Tribe of Dan is missing from those saved.
  • 5. From the tribe of Judah 12,000, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000, from the tribe of Asher 12,000, from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000, from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000, from the tribe of Simeon 12,000, from the tribe of Levi 12,000, from the tribe of Issachar 12,000, from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000, from the tribe of Joseph 12,000, from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000. …the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. Revelation 7
  • 6. What happened to Dan? What do we need to learn from this?
  • 7. Before Jacob died, he prophesied about each of his 12 sons
  • 8. This is what Jacob says about his son Dan Gen 49: 16 “Dan will provide justice for his people as one of the tribes of Israel. Gen 49: 17 Dan will be a snake by the roadside, a viper along the path, that bites the horse’s heels so that its rider tumbles backward.
  • 9. Dan is the Man Whose Name is Blotted Out When we come to the sealing of the twelve tribes (Revelation 7), Dan’s name is left out. The omission is absolute—the tribe is cut off from its brethren and its name blotted out. A further thought is associated with Jacob’s prophecy of Dan. “I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord.” This is the first mention of salvation in Scripture. But Dan’s history is adverse to the salvation predicted of him. His birth arose out of jealousy and inordinate desire. Dan became the Ishmael of Jacob’s family. Persistent idolatry clung to the Danites from first to last. It was because Dan was likened unto a serpent that some of the early fathers predicted that Antichrist would come from him. “They are not all Israel which are of Israel.” As there was one among the Twelve Apostles, so there was one among the Twelve Tribes who had not the seal of God.
