On the 144,000

12,000 from each tribe. How certain can modern Jews be of their tribe? and how certain can they be that they descend purely from that tribe (without mixture with another tribe, let alone without mixture with Gentiles).
Maybe it's possible for them to be certain - I don't know. But if only God knows who is who - if it's not really possible for us to know from the human standpoint - then we would have no way of verifying, from the human standpoint, when the prophecy is fulfilled, would we? (in the literalist, futurist view of it).
