Missing Tribes of Israel? (U55)

Rev 7:3-8 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed.
    This event will happen at Rapture when the Holy Spirit and the elect will be taken back to heaven by our Lord Jesus Christ. So without the Holy Spirit, the 144,000 new Israeli converts must be sealed by God to prevent them from the coming wrath of God upon all those rebellious and wicked unbelievers left behind.
Rom 11:25 For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.

Fables of Missing Tribe of Dan
2 Tim 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
    Because the tribe of Dan is missing from the twelve tribes in the above scriptures, so opportunists and covetous Christian leaders created stories and fables concerning the rejection of Dan by God. Some even claimed that the whole tribe of Dan had apostates to Islam. Their books of lies and fables are popular, just like the fables of illuminati and the conspiracy theories.

Fables of Missing Ephraim
    When the unlearned finds the tribe of Ephraim was missing in Rev 7:3-8 (above), they taught that Christians will be the missing tribe of Ephraim if they practice some rites of Judaism, which is a curse and heresy.
Note - the tribe of Joseph includes both tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh.

Rev 14:4 These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
    These 144,000 converts are disciples of Jesus during His Millennium Reign (Eze 40-48). The tribe of Dan will inherit the place next to Asher. All 12 main tribes of Israel will be with Him in Eze 48.
Eze 48:1-2 "Now these are the names of the tribes... there shall be one section for Dan from its east to its west side; by the border of Dan, from the east side to the west, one section for Asher;
Eze 48:30, 32 "These are the exits of the city... On the north side, measuring four thousand five hundred cubits on the east side, four thousand five hundred cubits, three gates: one gate for Joseph*, one gate for Benjamin, and *one gate for Dan;"

Conclusion - the mistake is in the copying of the tribe of Dan as the tribe of Manasseh in Rev 7:6, which brings truth and harmony in the whole counsel of God. This is rightly dividing the word of God.
