An innumerable number

An innumerable number

God said to Abraham ,

I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted.Genesis 13:16

“Look up at the sky and count the stars–if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Genesis 15:5

I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies. Genesis 22:17

Abraham remembering

But you promised me, ‘I will surely treat you kindly, and I will multiply your descendants until they become as numerous as the sands along the seashore–too many to count.'” Genesis 32:12

To the Northern (TEN) Tribes

“Yet the Israelites will be like the sand on the seashore, which cannot be measured or counted. In the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not my people,’ they will be called ‘children of the living God.’ Hosea1:10

Josephus, who lived in the first century A.D., wrote the following about the ten tribes of Israel:

“…the ten tribes are beyond Euphrates till
now, and are an immense multitude, and not
to be estimated by numbers.” *

*Josephus, Antiquities of the Jews, XI, V, 2

Just think, is the prophecy true? If it is, “where are they all?”
