Primary and secondary identity of the nations of the
earth in terms of the twelve tribes of Israel. The Western Hemisphere is of Joseph; America and Great
Britain, of Ephraim; Germany, of Gad; Austria, Greece, India, Japan, Spain,
New Zealand, and Australia are of Benjamin; China and Argentina are of
Simeon; Brazil is secondarily of Asher; Russia and France, of Judah;
Italy, of Issachar; etc.

SUBJECT: Specific identity of the nations of the earth in relation
to the twelve tribes of Israel (by J.J. Dewey), and a new forum page
for elaborating upon this.
Do any of you out there have additional/alternative insight into the
subject matter that follows? I would like to pursue this and develop
it, strengthen it, clarify it, verify it, elaborate on it.
This is a classic. I've never seen anything like it.
But then again, my reading energy has not ventured far outside of the
scriptures, as that is where my gift/talent/calling is directed. Hence
I am hoping some of you who have a much more broad exposure to the
literature of the world as well as maybe even gifts of revelation on
this subject might have interesting insights to share along these
To this end, I have created a new discussion page at
Open Forum on the Identity of Nations in Terms of the Tribes of
Israel -- Building the New Jerusalem --
This Greater Things discussion page is devoted to elaborating upon the
specific identity of the modern nations/peoples/major cities and even
religions of the earth in terms of primary and secondary Israelite
tribal character. Also germane to discussion are the ramifications of
these identities. It is intended to expand upon the what J.J. Dewey
wrote in "The Gathering of Lights" chapter 13, "Finding
the Tribes of Israel."

Finding The Tribes of Israel
Thursday, February 10, 2000 3:49 AM
Concerning the twelve tribes as a whole there are at least seven
interpretations or correspondences that can be applied to them. The most
popular is the literal physical applied to possible descendants of the early
Hebrew groups. The interpretation we shall deal with here is one of
consciousness. It might be said, for instance, that the Aryans dwelling in
America have an Ephraim consciousness and that the
Indians, Mexicans and
others have the Manasseh consciousness. The
Western Hemisphere as a whole has
the consciousness of Joseph. However, the individual nations within this
hemisphere belong to varying tribes. For instance Brazil shares the
consciousness of Asher.
Then too within these countries each state county and
city will ascribe to a certain consciousness. New York is a city of
for example. Each entity is a composition of a number of the tribes, but there
are always two of primary influence. Ephraim
is the secondary influencing
tribe of New York.
Finally, each individual shares the consciousness of one of the tribes of
Israel and also has a secondary tribe pulling at him. The
United States is Ephraim and Manasseh in consciousness, but has many
scattered throughout. These are referred to as the "sons of Levi" in
the Bible. The Mormon Church began as Levites, but are now hovering between
Levi and Dan.
Great Britain is still strong in Ephraim
with London being a city of Levites. However the
soul of London is of Judah. This is an interesting
correspondence to the prophecy: "The scepter shall no depart from Judah,
nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh (Christ) come; and unto him
shall the gathering of the people be." Gen 49:10 The royalists in Britain
have the Judah consciousness and there are many of them in London and they
will struggle to keep the scepter (crown) in Britain Until Christ appears.
Russia and France both have Judah as their primary tribe. Russia has been
struggling in this century to obtain the scepter of power for themselves alone
just as France has in the past. There are many Reubenites in Russia who are
seeing the firstborn statues that was lost causing instability and a strong
desire to be the pride of the world. There are also numerous Ephraimites
secretly desire change and greater freedoms and who seek a closer relationship
with Britain and America. These will cause a religious revolution in Russia
that will benefit the whole world.
Italy is mostly of Issachar and like him they easily submit to authority,
especially to the Catholic Church and various totalitarian governments in the
past. The name though means "he will bring a reward" indicating the
great service potential of Italy. There are also many of the tribe of Judah
there. Germany is principally of the tribe of Gad. The name means "to
gather yourselves in troops, attach, overcome". Germany showed us the
negative aspect of this tribe in the two World Wars. There are also many of
Nepthalim and some of Judah and
Dan. Through Nepthalim Germany will eventually
become a joyful nation which will be the opposite of Hitler's Reich. Those of
Judah sincerely sought to secure the scepter for Germany but the Danites
(Hitler and his bunch) sought it in totalitarian fashion. The negative aspect
of Dan is also creating many of the problems in
China is influenced largely by the tribe of Simeon. The name means "to
hear and obey" and this expresses the attitude of the people there toward
the state. They are now exhibiting the negative expression Simeon, but they
will eventually express the more divine meaning of Simeon which is obedience
to true principles through free will. There are also many of the tribe of
Issachar and like him they submit themselves to forced labor (The negative
expression of submission). There are also some Ephraimites. Some of these
showed themselves at Tianenman Square in Beijing when the students made a
stand for freedom..
Argentina is a correspondence to China in the Western Hemisphere. The major
tribe of them both is Simeon. The influencing tribe of China is Issachar and
of Argentina is Zabulon and Moses offered them both the same blessing:
"They shall call the people unto the mountain (mount Zion); there they
shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance
of the seas, and the treasures hid in the sand." Deut 33:19.
This same blessing applies to Canada, but this nation presently has a much
higher percentage of Ephraimites and Levites. Their consciousness is
predominantly of Levi.
One of the most numerous tribes in the world is that of Benjamin, the
brother of Joseph. Those under this influence are Austria, Greece, India,
Japan, Spain, New Zealand, and Australia.
Rachel died after a long labor as she was giving birth to Benjamin and in
her dying breath she named him Benoni which means: "Son of great
exertion, tribulation, or sorrow." After she died Jacob renamed him
Benjamin which means "Son of the right hand". The ancient King Saul
was from Benjamin as well as the New Testament Saul who was renamed the
The name "Saul" means to 'ask for" and "Paul"
means "to come to and end". In other words Saul is the seeker and
Paul is the one who was found or received that which is sought. The seekers of
Benjamin are Austria, Greece, Japan, Spain, New Zealand and
Paul among them is India for within her and also Tibet are found many of the
mysteries of the ancient wisdom.
The negative side of Benjamin is to be overaggressive or "ravin as the
wolf" as Japan was during World War II. The positive side is "divine
acquiescence" which causes him to "dwell in the safety of the
Lord". The acquiescence of Japan since the war has caused her to dwell in
safety with no military effort on their part.
the secondary tribe in India is
Nepthalim. The name means "to struggle
to give forth a message of gladness". This corresponds interestingly with
the names Benoni and Benjamin mentioned above. After much struggle and
exertion the hidden message of India will be given to the world for all to
understand "and the knowledge of the Lord will cover the earth as the
water does the seas".
The secondary tribe of Japan is
Dan. Again it showed the negative aspect of
this during World War II, but it may show the positive aspect by being a
righteous balance of power between the nations.
The secondary tribe for Austria is
Simeon, and for Spain is Issachar. In
both Australia and Greece it is Asher. Asher means "to be happy".
Those of the tribe of Asher help to create the lighthearted spirit in both of
Both Finland and Rumania are of the tribe of Nepthalim. Rachel named her
handmaiden's son this because "with the wrestlings of God I have wrestled
with my sister and I have prevailed." Nepthalim was the son of Bilhah
which means "trouble". Even though Nepthalim is the son of trouble
he wrestles with it and eventually prevails and brings forth blessings and
gladness. The secondary tribe in Finland is
Benjamin and in Rumania it is
The tribe of Zabulon lies chiefly in the
Netherlands and the Scandinavian
countries. When Leah bore Zabulon (which means "to dwell") she said:
"God hat endued me with a good dowry; now will my husband dwell with me,
because I have born him six sons." Gen 30:20 The "husband" is a
symbol of God. The goal of Zabulon is to recognize the God that is dwelling
within the heart of each man and to express it.
Jacob prophesied of him: "Zabulon shall dwell at the haven of the sea;
and he shall be an haven of ships; and his border shall be unto Zidon."
Gen49:13 In the Hebrew Zidon implies a place where men fish.
This prophecy is literally fulfilled in the Netherlands and the
Scandinavian countries. Interestingly, it was not fulfilled in the land given
to Zabulon in ancient Israel for he had no borders by the sea at that time.
Indications are that he never possessed ancient Zidon, but he does now posses
a modern place where there is much fish.
Again we quote the words of Moses concerning Zabulon and Issachar:
"they shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer
sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall such of the abundance of the seas,
and the treasures hid in the sand." Deut 33:19.
Zabulon's good aspect is to be a fisher of men as the twelve apostles were
and to call people to gather to the mountain (kingdom) of God. The
"abundance of the seas" refers to the multitudes of the peoples of
the earth and the "treasures hid in the sand" is symbolic of the
treasures hidden in the hearts of the downtrodden people of the earth. Those
of Zabulon in these and other countries who have found the true powers of
Israel will inspire many to find the treasure of the god within. Secondary
tribes within these countries are Reuben for
Holland and Ephraim and Manasses
The main gathering place for Reuben is
Switzerland. Reuben was Jacob's
firstborn through Leah whom he did not love. The name means "see, a
son" which were the words she uttered when he was born. She also said:
"Surely the Lord hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband
will love me." Gen 29:32 This indicates the positive aspect of Reuben.
The "Son" is symbolic of the Son of God and a Reubenite who is a
true Israelite will help other "see". This will bring the love of
the husband who is God and it will "stream forth into the hearts of
On the negative side Reuben had intercourse with his father's concubine and
lost his firstborn status and was told he would not excel, but would have a
lot of pride and dignity. Nevertheless, we are told that even a hated
firstborn is to receive a double portion (Deut 21:17) and Switzerland has been
a very prosperous country.
The secondary tribe is Nepthalim.
The city of Geneva in Switzerland is one of the most important and
enlightened cities in the world and is almost a separate entity from the
country itself. Its consciousness is the tribe of Judah and seeks to hold the
financial scepter for the world. It is the world symbol for the "lion of
the tribe of Judah", one of the names of Christ.
Lastly, we find the tribe of Dan in Turkey. The positive aspect of Dan is a
righteous judge. The negative side is: Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an
adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall
backward. I have waited for thy salvation, O Lord." Gen 49:17-18.
The serpent of the Bible is the symbol of Satan the adversary and the
righteous judge of God the Father; thus Dan is symbolic of the best and the
worst in man. The early Christians believed that the great anti-Christ would
be through the lineage of Dan and thus left him out of the tribes of Israel
mentioned in the Book of Revelations. Joseph was counted twice through his two
sons. Nevertheless, the Danites can obtain the power of Israel by exercising
Readers may be curious as to the consciousness of Israel itself. As may be
expected it is predominately of Judah, but there are many who portray the
negative side of Dan. These are they "which say they are Jews and are
not, but are the synagogue (tribe) of Satan" (the negative side of Dan).
Rev 2:9. Those who are of this negative aspect of Dan try and portray the
consciousness of Judah, but inwardly they are adversaries to true Israel.
Israel also has quite a number of Ephraimites and Levites causing natural
affinity with the United States.
The Arabian countries are mostly Zabulon and
Issachar. They physically
fulfill the prophecy here that "they shall suck of the abundance of the
seas, and the treasures hid in the sand." Deut 33:19 There cannot be a
better description of the oil they have "sucked" from the sands and
seas. Moses even said Issachar would live in "tents". Many of the
Mid East people still live this way.
Thus ends the identification of the Israel including the lost tribes which
have been largely lost to the consciousness of mankind.

Rick mentioned that there were more than 12 tribes in my chapter. In the Book of
Revelation Manasses who was a son of Joseph
replaced Dan. Christian tradition says this was done because legend has it that
the anti-Christ was supposed to come through Dan. Ephraim was also a son of
Joseph and is sometimes listed in the place of Joseph. The original 12 tribes
did not include Ephraim and Manasses.
Sterling asked me about Africa. The civilized parts of Africa are Levi
and the secondary would be Benjamin.
Many of the evolving third world nations are yet to find their identity in
consciousness. The blacks in the developing nations in Africa, however, are
going to make so great leaps forward in the next couple hundred years.
