Think about the following. Why would God bless and allow the United States and the British Commonwealth (as it used to be called) to become the two greatest nations the world has ever known yet say absolutely NOTHING about them in the Bible? As we draw ever closer to the return of Jesus Christ, does it make any prophetic sense that the United States, which is still the world's only viable superpower, would be totally ABSENT from fulfilling any of God's end time prophecies? The reason why most people cannot understand Bible prophecy and God’s plan of salvation is that they do not know the identity of modern Israel. Because the vast majority of Christians simply do not know where the descendants of the lost tribes of Israel live today they are clueless regarding even a basic framework of the events to transpire in the very near future.

Most of God’s promises contained in the Old Testament refer to the lost tribes of Israel. He has also made some promises to Gentile nations, but the vast majority of them involve Israelites. The two sons of Joseph, Ephraim, and Manasseh, who were born in Egypt when Joseph ruled there under the Pharaoh, have received most of the physical blessings that God promised. The other English speaking nations have also received physical blessings, but nowhere near as much as the United States and British Commonwealth.

Below is a list of the major countries that represent the majority of the lost tribes. Although this information is based on historical and linguistic evidence not all Israelites can be identified with absolute certainty. Research indicates that those descended from Israel (Jacob) are among the world's wealthiest nations and occupy the world's choicest land. God will make very sure these nations have the good news message of the Kingdom proclaimed to them before the return of Jesus.
