WE FIND THESE MENTIONED IN REVELATION 7:4‑10:4: And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

5: Of the tribe of Judah were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

6: Of the tribe of Asher were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim (Naphtali) (Naphtali) were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasseh were sealed twelve thousand.

7: Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

8: Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.

NOTE: In this numbering of the Children of Israel, the tribes of Ephraim and Dan are not listed. Joseph is listed and so is Manasseh, why was Ephraim one of the Birthright Tribes not listed? And why was Dan not listed?

Some will say that Joseph was listed so he took the place of Ephraim but that simply cannot be the case because of the importance of his position in the tribes.
