Jacob Report #1.2 – Ben-Israel: The Wicked Prince

Scriptures Support Jewish and Israeli origins of anti-Christ

When we speak, (speculate) regarding Ben Israel, we are, for the moment, speaking about something that has not yet transpired.  When we do, it is an imprudent person who would state so dogmatically.  Whatever is herein proposed is done so with the understanding that what follows is this writer’s personal opinion.  It should be considered only under the heading of “possibly” and not certainty.  I am only going to say this once, and then I will begin to speculate.


Jacob’s son, the snake in the way

16 “Dan shall judge his people, As one of the tribes of Israel. 17 “Dan shall be a serpent in the way, A horned snake in the path, That bites the horse’s heels, So that his rider falls backward. 18 “For Your salvation I wait, O Lord. Gen 49:16-18 (NASB)

For quite a number of years, I have believed the above verses have significant end time importance, and directly convey specifics regarding origins of the anti-Christ.  Then, years ago, while doing research at the University of Texas for a Senior history course, I was researching the Ante Nissan Father’s and stumbled onto the fact that  Christians during the 1st three centuries uniformly believed this prophecy of Jacob absolutely meant the anti-Christ would not only be Jewish, but come from the tribe of Dan.  Up to that time, I thought this was my own idea.

Jacob uttered the above words (prophecy) on his deathbed.  As Jacob is about to die, and wishes to speak, as he says, regarding what will happen in the future.

1 Then Jacob summoned his sons and said, “Assemble yourselves that I may tell you what will befall you in the days to come. Gen 49:1 (NASB)

He calls to his deathbed his twelve sons, the patriarchs of the twelve tribes of Israel (Jacob). (Gen. 49:1 in Hebrew actually says, “In the Last Days.”)

The above prophecy was spoken over Dan, one of the 12 sons of Jacob (Israel).  The 12 sons became the 12 tribes.

It is my belief that one of the functions of the anti-Christ is as a rod in the hand of God to execute judgment, even judgment upon Israel.  This judgment is referred to by Messiah as “the days of vengeance.”

22 because these are days of vengeance, so that all things which are written will be fulfilled. Luke 21:22 (NASB)

Clearly, “written” refers to what was previously written in scripture.  There are many places in scripture that refer, collectively, to a time the Rabbis have come to refer to as, “the birth pains of Messiah” also known as “Jacob’s trouble.”  I maintain the anti-Christ is a focal agent of this last- day’s judgment, and, if so, the prophecy uttered by Jacob on his deathbed has maximum significance!  I believe Jacob’s prophecy reveals the specific details of the origin of the anti-Christ.  Just as scripture clearly predicted the birthplace of the Messiah in Bethlehem, Jacob’s prophecy tells us to look to Dan for the anti-Christ.


The Portion of Dan

40 the seventh lot fell to the tribe of the sons of Dan according to their families. 41 and the territory of their inheritance was Zorah and Eshtaol and Ir-shemesh, 45 and Jehud [Yahud] and Bene-berak and Gath-rimmon, 46 and Me-jarkon [May Yarkon] and Rakkon, with the territory over against Joppa [Yaffo]. Josh. 19:40-46

A few years ago, I was with some Israeli friends.  We were driving at night through Beni Brak, one of the religious suburbs of Tel Aviv. I saw a Hebrew sign with two words, one of which I read as “Dan.” I asked my Israeli friend, “What does that sign say?” She read it back, “Gosh Dan.  It means ‘the portion of Dan’ as was given by Joshua to the tribe.”

I believe this narrows down the origin not just to a Jew, an Israeli, but someone born into these particular suburbs of Tel Aviv.

Is there any other scripture which further supports the Dan connection?  What about Rev. 7:4-8.  Twelve thousand are saved from “every” tribe of the sons of Israel.  Why then, is Dan not included? Again speculation;  sin so great as to have the name of the tribe blotted out of the twelve, much as Judas was excluded from the twelve because of his betrayal of Yeshua.

In fact, I believe Ben Israel is to produce the greatest act of treachery ever perpetrated upon the people and nation of Israel, much as his predecessor who walked among the twelve disciples betrayed His Messiah.


Ben Israel seeks to Eliminate the Portion of the Lord from Israel

At another time, I will disclose why I believe Ben Israel will offer up the territory of Judah, a.k.a. the Occupied Territories, a.k.a. the West Bank, as a “sacrifice for peace” to the World community.  By such an act Lucifer, through his agent, Ben Israel, seeks to wipe out the portion from Israel which the Lord has called His own.

12 “The Lord will possess Judah as His portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem. Zech 2:12 (NASB)

By making a deal to give up Judah, the Lord’s portion, the heritage of the family of David, and Jerusalem, the city of David, Lucifer attempts to negate forever the covenant of David. I believe the absence of Dan is the Lord’s response, which is to remove his family’s tribe’s name from mention.


Lucifer and his man a.k.a. the snake

Additional evidence that the prophecy of Jacob speaks of the anti-Christ;

Is. 14:29  “Do not rejoice, O Philistia, all of you, Because the rod that struck you is broken; For from the serpent’s root a viper will come out, And its fruit will be a flying serpent.

If the above verse speaks of the anti-Christ, and I believe it does, then read it concurrently with Jacob’s prophecy for Dan.

The symbol for Lucifer since the garden has always been “the snake,” that serpent, the devil.

9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Rev. 12:9(NASB)

2 And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, Rev. 20:2(NASB)

If this is the case, and the image of “serpent” is used regarding a man, is it not a reference to the offspring of Satan himself, Ben Israel? “Dan shall be a serpent!”

When Isaiah prophesied in Isa. 9:6-7 that Messiah would be called, “God with us, the Mighty God, Eternal Father,” it was clear the “man” was to be God!

So also when a “man” is called by Satan’s title, there can be no doubt the Satan-man is the one and only anti-Christ.


The Israeli Snake

A final point; the Hebrew word that Jacob used for “snake” in Dan’s prophecy, Gen 49:17 “Dan shall be a serpent in the way, a horned snake . . .” was SHFIFON which is a snake typical only to Israel.”  I personally think this has enormous significance to our subject, and is one of the reasons I refer to him as Ben Israel.

If, as I maintain, Jacob was referring to the last, wicked, judge of Israel, then his final words on the subject of Dan have an especially significant meaning!

18 “For Thy salvation (Yeshua) I wait, O Lord. Gen. 49:18 (NASB)


Biblical Interpretation and First Mention

18 “For Thy salvation (Yeshua) I wait, O Lord.” Gen. 49:18 (NASB)

I subscribe to the principle of interpretation known as “first mention.”  It’s the premise that the first time a word, or phase, and especially a name, is used in Scripture (certainly in Genesis) the use of the name or word has enhanced significance for the subsequent use of the name or word thereafter!  Now, most modern day English-speaking Believers are aware that “Yeshua” is the Hebrew name of Messiah.  The fact is, the first time “Yeshua” is used in Genesis is right here, in this prophecy of Dan!

What will interrupt and bring the rule and travesty of Ben Israel to an end?  Even the Rabbinic Jews know that the Coming of Messiah brings the “birth-pains of Messiah” a.k.a. “Jacob’s Trouble” to a close!

1 “And there will be a time of distress such as never occurred since there was a (Modern) nation until that time; and at that time your people, everyone who is found written in the book, will be rescued. Dan. 12:1 (NASB)

So, this most difficult time for the nation, when extinction could even be possible were it not for the promise of God, is only interrupted by the Second Coming of Messiah! Hence, Jacob, in behalf of this future progeny, utters this prayer for the coming of the solution to the end of Jacob’s Trouble.

Jacob, in behalf of his future progeny, cries out with the only solution to Jacob’s trouble, the (Second) coming of “Yeshua.”
