Hello Steven. 

I’m thrilled that I was able to find your website, read a couple articles, and listen to the radio broadcasts on Torah 2 The Nations. I just ordered all four of your books. For the past few years, I’ve been intrigued with to Lost 10 Tribes of Israel and convinced that we are them. I cannot get enough input!!  A couple questions please if you have time:  First, I assume the 13 tribes of Israel are of different ethnic backgrounds (Asian, Black, Caucasian, etc.) due to the fact that God split them into their own territories in the Promised Land. Can the 13 tribes be categorized today (i.e. Levites are Blacks)?   Second, where are Ishmael’s roots today?  Are they the “enemy” possibly?   Thank you for your time……………………

I’m delighted that you are benefiting from the content at my website, the new radio broadcasts just posted and that you have ordered my books. I believe you will find them very faith-building (as many have).
The 13 tribes do have different ethnic backgrounds, but they have all come from a common Semitic background. I regard modern blacks as blood descendants of the sons of Ham, although those who assimilate into the Israelite nations are reckoned as “born in the land” (Leviticus 19:33-34, Ezekiel 47:22-23). The Levites were prophesied to be scattered among all the tribes of Israel in the latter days (Genesis 4:5-7); therefore, the various Levites will have intermarried with the members of each of the tribes in which they are scattered. They will share at least some of the ethnic traits of each of the tribes of Israel in which they are located.
The modern Ishmaelites are the Arab nations, in my judgment. The Gog-Magog alliance is prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39 to be the enemies of the tribes of “Israel” in the latter days, and Ezekiel 38:2-6 lists those nations which will be in that alliance (Russia, China, Iran, etc.). The Ishmaelites are not listed as being in that alliance so I am hopeful that the Ishmaelites will be allies of the modern Israelite nations (the western world) at the end of this age. Indeed, not one nation descended from Shem or Abraham is listed in the “enemy”‘ nations in Ezekiel 38:2-6, inferring that all of Abraham’s children will be on the same side at the end of this age.
