Replacements -tf

Dan replaced by Joseph

Judges 18:1 "IN those days there was no king in Israel. . . ."

(See 17:6 for the idea here.)

". . . the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for . . . their inheritance had not fallen unto them. . . ."

The tribe of Dan did not get their inheritance, AND NEVER WILL!

Genesis 49:1 Jacob prophesies his 12 sons futures

v. 17 and "Dan shall be a serpent by the way. . . ." (a reference to Satan)

(see: Genesis 3:1-4, 14 & Revelation 20:2 "that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan. . . .")

Amos 8:14 "They that . . . say, Thy God O Dan, liveth . . . shall fall, and never rise up again."


(Compare Genesis 49:1-28 with Revelation 7:4-8 Dan is replaced by Manasses, Joseph's firstborn)

John 6:70 "Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?"

(It was the same with the twelve tribes as with the twelve apostles.)

Acts 1:15-26 "Let his habitation be desolate . . . and his bishoprick let another take."

(Incidentally the Lord ignored the casting of lots and chose his own replacement: Saul of Tarsus)

1st Corinthians 15:1-10 ". . . the least of the apostles . . . by the grace of God I am what I am. . . ."

9:1-2 "AM I not an apostle? . . . for the seal of mine apostleship are ye in the Lord."

1:1 "PAUL, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God."

(Romans 1:1; 1st Corinthians 1:1; 2nd Corinthians 1:1; Ephesians 1:1; Colossians 1:1; 1st Timothy 1:1; 2nd Timothy 1:1,11; & Titus 1:1)

Who should choose the twelfth apostle? Who chose the other eleven?

(See John 6:70 again.) (It wasn't by lots.)

Galatians 1:1 "PAUL, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ. . . .)"

Since we're off the subject anyway, look at one more thing:

Revelation 21:10-14 "And the wall of the city had . . . the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb."
