THE QUESTION IS, WHAT IS THE FUTURE OF FRANCE IN Bible prophecy? In the main France is descended from the Israelite tribe of Reuben. In France there are also minorities from the tribes of Simeon and Gad. This is well documented in the book “The Tribes” by Yair Davidy”.

To have an understanding of France prophetically it is necessary to understand Reuben. Reuben was the firstborn son of Jacob through Leah. Jacob had two wives Leah and Rachel. But Jacob loved Rachel more than Leah. “And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren. And Leah conceived, and bare a son, and she called his name Reuben: for she said, Surely the LORD hath looked upon my affliction; now therefore my husband will love me” (Genesis 29:31, 32). Reuben means ‘see a son’. It was in the environment when Leah felt unloved by her husband and as a consequence was afflicted that Reuben was born.

Reuben was born in the environment of Leah’s emotional turmoil. As a consequence Reuben became an unstable person. According to Genesis 49:4 Reuben is „unstable as water’. After Rachel Jacob’s second wife was buried “Israel (Jacob) journeyed, and spread his tent beyond the tower of Edar. And it came to pass, when Israel dwelt in that land, that Reuben went and lay with Bilhah his father’s concubine: and Israel heard it” (Gen 35:21, 22). This was an abomination before the LORD. This failure by Reuben as the eldest son to properly look after and protect all the remaining members of Jacob’s family while he was away but instead fornicated with his father’s concubine was to later disqualify him from the birthright.
