The Sons of Japheth

This series started with the youngest son of Noah Sons of Shem (No. 212A-212G). The next was the series on the second son, Sons of Ham (Nos 45A-45F).

Japheth, the eldest of the three sons of Noah, was to be made very large and was to dwell in the tents of Shem, and be served by Canaan (Gen. 9:27). He was the father of the Indo-European peoples and also the ancestor of much of Asia and the Americas including some of the Pacific. The blessings of the line of Shem are incorporated in the lines of Ham and Japheth.

There is literally no pure race on Earth. The nations contain elements of at least two people and in some cases a multiplicity of peoples. We are all, of every tribe and nation, destined to become sons of God in the tribes of Israel. The Bible is Scripture and Scripture cannot be broken. It is written: I said ye are Gods all of you and Scripture cannot be broken (cf. Ps. 82:6; Jn. 10:34-35). Look also at the paper The Elect as Elohim (No. 001).

All people will be given the opportunity of salvation by God through Jesus Christ. There will be neither Jew nor Greek, neither black nor white.  As we move into the Last Days it is important that there is no racism and there is clear thinking on the part of all people. God is working out a Master Plan and He will deal with all nations all over the Earth and bring them to salvation. He will place them in the nation of spiritual Israel under His son, the Messiah, the soon-coming King of the Earth. Pray that Christ is sent soon to save those that eagerly await him.

We hope the information in this series will give you a clearer idea of the Plan of God and the History of Nations from their origins to their current locations. May God bless us all as we go about His work.

The sons of Japheth were Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubal, Meshech and Tiras (Gen. 10:2); their lineages are traced in the following papers:

Sons of Japheth: Part I (No. 46A)
Sons of Japheth: Part III Magog (No. 46C)
Sons of Japheth: Part V Javan (No. 46E)
Sons of Japheth: Part VI Tubal (No. 46F)
Sons of Japheth: Part VIII Tiras (No. 46H)


God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
