Q. A thought just crossed my mind. Do you think that through DNA processing science might be able to separate the 12 tribes spoken of in Rev. so that 12000 from each tribe might be identified?
A. Some scientists claim to have already located a genetic marker in the DNA of the Cohen family of the Tribe of Levi. The Kohanim as they were called were the priests of Israel. Maybe they’ll find others as well. But remember, the Lord appoints these 144,000 and He already knows exactly who they are.
