Nations such as Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey, Russia, Iran
and others are mentioned by name in the pages of your Bible.
Would God ignore such great and mighty nations as the British
Empire and the United States of America?
I will tell you quite dogmatically that God does not ignore
those two powerful and mighty peoples of this modern space age.
In fact, those two brother powers are mentioned more often in the
pages of your Bible than any other nation on the face of the
The story of the very being of these people of the British
Empire and the USA is truly an INSPIRING WONDER of the POWER of
the Eternal God of heaven, a power to PLAN and to PROPHECY
concerning a people THOUSANDS of years in ADVANCE, and bring it
TO PASS that which was promised and foretold.
PROMISES TO ABRAHAM
Our story begins with the call of God to a man named
Abraham. Notice what is written: "I will make of YOU a GREAT
NATION and I will BLESS YOU.....and in you shall all the families
of the earth be blessed" (Gen.12:2-3).
Here is mentioned and promised PHYSICAL GREATNESS and
SPIRITUAL/PHYSICAL BLESSING for the whole earth.
Continuing in Gen.17:6 God said: ".....and I will make YOU
exceeding fruitful, and I will make NATIONS(plural) of YOU, and
KINGS(PLURAL) shall come out of you." Now the Jewish people that
most persons immediately think about coming from Abraham, have
never been NATIONS(plural).
Sarah, the wife of Abraham, was given this promise from God:
".....and I will bless her.....she shall be a mother of
NATIONS(plural); and KINGS(plural) of people shall be of her"
(Gen.17:16). This cannot be just a reference to the ONE seed of
Abraham, namely Christ. This promise to Sarah was that NATIONS
and KINGS would come from her.
The seed, the offspring of Abraham, were to become GREAT
(Gen.18:18). Abraham's seed were to be called, named after, Isaac
(Gen.21:12). When Paul was inspired to talk about the true
"spiritual" children of God through Abraham, he wrote this:
"Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all
children; but in Isaac shall your seed be called. That is, They
which are the children of the FLESH, these are not the children
What Paul was pointing out was that just because you were
literally from the seed or offspring of Abraham by flesh and
blood in literal physical decent, this did not automatically make
you the children of the Eternal God. Paul was inspired to say
that the majority of the literal physical offspring of Abraham
would be called after the name of Isaac. This was the prophecy of
Gen.21:12. Paul was simply stating what had already been foretold
thousands of year earlier.
The children or literal seed of Abraham would mainly be
called Isaac sons, sons of Isaac, or Saac sons. To day we have a
whole race of people known as Sac-sons, or Saxons. As we proceed
we shall see this was not just the luck of the draw.
Abraham's descendants were to MULTIPLY as the STARS of
heaven and as the sand on the sea shore (Gen.22:17). There are
only 15 million Jews in the world today. They have never been a
people that could be said to be as the sand on the sea shore
Yes the Arab nations are from Abraham through Hagar, and the
son born - Ishmael. But a separate prophecy was given to him and
his seed. It is found in Gen.16:8- 12; 17:20. He also was to
multiply greatly. And the Arab nations have done just that over
the centuries. But Ishmael was cast out, away from Abraham. The
physical promises given to Abraham and his seed through Isaac,
were SEPARATE from any promises made to Ishmael - see
Here in this study we are concerned with the promises made
to Abraham through Isaac and later as we shall see passed on to
Jacob and his son Joseph.
A birthright is that which belongs to you as by right of
birth. You are born to inherit it. There was a birthright
promise - physical blessing given as a right of birth (not
grace), to Abraham's seed, which ended up in the possession of
Jacob (Gen.25:29-34; 27:1-42).
Most are familiar with how Esau sold the birthright to Jacob
for a bowl of pottage(see also Hebrews 12:16).
This birthright was PHYSICAL GREATNESS and BLESSINGS of the
heaven and the earth. Nations would serve the descendants of
Jacob. Jacob had his name changed or was given another name
besides that of Jacob, it was the name ISRAEL - see Gen.32:22-30.
The second time this new name was announced by God to Jacob,
there was also a PROMISE and PROPHECY given to the very
descendants of Jacob, that which would come from his literal seed
or offspring. It is found in Gen.35:11. "And God said unto him:
I am God Almighty, be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY; a NATION(SINGULAR)
and a COMPANY OF NATIONS(and that is how the Hebrew is rendered
in the Heb./Eng. Interlinear by Dr. Green), shall be of YOU, and
KINGS(plural) shall come out of your loins."
Some where, at some point in history, from the literal
offspring that would come from JACOB, who was from Abraham(who
was promised by God to be a GREAT PEOPLE), there was to come a
nation and company of nations. Obviously this prophecy was not to
be a small thing, otherwise why bother even mentioning it. God
does mention it to Jacob, and promises it to Jacob, BECAUSE this
promise would be a HUGE IMPORTANT promise to be fulfilled by God
in some part of Jacob's literal physical seed. As we shall see,
this SPECIFIC promise was to be FINE TUNED and given to a
SPECIFIC SON of Jacob, and to TWO sons of that son. Let's
proceed to see that promise passed on to a singular son of
Jacob had 12 sons (Gen.35:23-26). One of them was JOSEPH.
Now Joseph had two sons born to him in Egypt - Manasseh and
Ephraim (Gen.41:50-52). When Jacob was dying, Joseph came to
visit him and brought along his two sons I've mentioned
above. Jacob knew that it was more than happen-chance for these
two sons of Joseph to be at his death bed. Jacob has them come
near. He crosses his hands and puts his right hand on Ephraim and
his left hand on Manasseh. He then passed on the BIRTHRIGHT to
THEM (Gen.48). Jacob said: "....let MY NAME be named on
THEM(they above others would be known as Israel).....let THEM
grow into a MULTITUDE in the MIDST of the earth.....he(Manasseh)
shall be GREAT, but truly his younger brother shall be GREATER
than him, and HIS seed shall become a MULTITUDE(Heb.fullness) of
Here we see with only slightly different words, the promise
that from Jacob would come a NATION and a COMPANY OF NATIONS
(Gen.35) was now narrowed down and specifically given to Joseph's
two sons - Ephraim and Manasseh.
As we are clearly told by the writer of 1 Chronicles: "For
Judah prevailed above his brethren and of him came the CHIEF
ruler (the Messiah), but the BIRTHRIGHT was JOSEPH'S"
THE FAITH OF JACOB
The great chapter eleven of the book of Hebrews is known
commonly today as THE FAITH chapter. We are given many examples
of persons that are to be help up as role models for us, in
FAITH. A true LIVING, powerful, active faith, that in those
things that God had PROMISED He was able to so PERFORM and bring
to pass. We are given example after example of individuals who
held to faith as the "substance of things hoped for, the EVIDENCE
of things not seen."
They LIVED and WALKED with God in FAITH that what He has
said and promised WOULD COME TO FRUITION.
In verse 11 and 12 of this eleventh chapter we see the faith
of Sarah. She received strength to conceive and deliver the
child of promise, whose seed, literal offspring, would
be as the sand upon the sea shore for multitudes. By common
logic, this must be a people many more times greater in
population than the Jews have ever been, down through the ages.
Why the Jews today are ONLY 15 million worldwide out of a
population of 5 Billion.
Then we come to verse 21 and the faith of Jacob. " By FAITH
Jacob, when he was dying, BLESSED BOTH the sons of Joseph; and
worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff."
He died in faith, exhibiting faith, in CONFIDENCE of THINGS
HOPED FOR, the evidence of things not yet seen. He blessed in a
literal physical way the sons of Joseph. He died in faith knowing
that what God had promised He was able to perform. He died
knowing assuredly that one day God would make Manasseh into the
greatest SINGLE NATION this world has ever seen since time began.
He died in faith known that God would also make his younger
brother even greater. That he and his seed would become the
COMPANY AND FULLNESS of NATIONS that was promised him when God
appeared to him after coming out of Padanaram(Gen.35:9-11).
He died in faith that these two brothers, who would then
LOOK ALIKE, SPEAK ALIKE, LIVE TOGETHER LIKE, HAVE THE SAME
CULTURE AND HERITAGE, WHO WOULD GROW TOGETHER INTO A GREAT
MULTITUDE IN THE MIDST OF THE EARTH(Gen.48:16), AND WHO AFTER
THAT WOULD SEPARATE AND BECOME A GREAT NATION AND A FULLNESS OR
COMPANY OF NATIONS(Gen.48:19).
Jacob's faith was NOT in vain. What God had promised He was
able to perform, He would bring to pass, in His own good time,
according to His plan for the ages to come, until the Kingdom of
God would be set up on this earth by Him that would come from the
son of Judah, for it was promised that he would have the SCEPTRE
and unto Him would be the gathering of the nations(Gen.49:9-10)
but the BIRTHRIGHT was Joseph's(1 Chron.5:2).
JACOB AND LAST DAYS PROPHECY
" And Jacob called unto his sons, and said, Gather
yourselves together, that I may tell you that which SHALL BEFALL
YOU IN THE LAST DAYS " (Gen.49:1).
Now what do you suppose are the last days? Do you think it
is when Israel entered the promised land after coming out of
Egypt? Was it when Joshua led Israel into the promised land?
Maybe you think it was the time of the Judges, or Samuel? How
about the time of king David? Or you may think it was when Ezra
and Nehemiah re-built the Temple in Jerusalem after the 70 year
captivity of Judah in Babylon. Then perhaps you think it is the
last 100 years before the return of Christ. Perhaps the last 500
years of this present New Testament age, is the "last days."
From the number of prophecies in the prophetic books of the
Old Testament that this phrase is found, and within the context
of those prophecies, we could narrow down this "last days" phrase
to a relatively short period of time. But I want to use the
largest period of time I possibly can for this phrase, FOR THE
SAKE OF ARGUMENTS. Do I even have a large expanse of time that
could be used for this phrase?
Let's use the Bible to interpret itself.
The apostle John writing about the false ministers that were
to arise stated: "Little children, it is THE LAST TIME; and as
you have heard that anti-christ shall come, even now are there
many anti-christs; whereby we know that it is THE LAST TIME" (1
Not quite the same words you may argue. John uses "the last
time" while Jacob said "last days." But I submit, they really
mean the same.
We shall for the sake of argument get more specific. Turn to
Hebrews chapter one. Please read verses one and two. THERE IT
IS! God has spoken to us by His Son in "THESE LAST DAYS."
If you want to take the LARGEST possible TIME FRAME for the
phrase "last days" I submit to you it would be from the time of
Jesus' first appearing on this earth to preach the Gospel, until
the time of Jesus' return in power and glory to set up the
Kingdom of God on the earth.
To believe the last days was ANYTIME BEFORE the coming of
Christ as flesh and blood, is not only illogical but is against
sound Biblical interpretation.
What we are going to read about in Genesis 49, concerning
the BIRTHRIGHT BLESSINGS of Joseph, to come upon, to befall
Joseph in the last days, must be taken from at least the time of
the first coming of the Messiah. Using the LARGEST time frame
for the phrase "last days" that would be the time frame of about
the last 2000 years!
So for arguments sake, God could have brought to pass the
promises to Joseph at any time over the last 2000 years. Only
secular history would give us any specifics as to when within
that 2000 year period those promises were fulfilled, and upon
whom they were fulfilled would also be very evident in the
recorded history of man.
THE BIRTHRIGHT PROMISES TO JOSEPH IN THE LAST DAYS
The blessing and prophecy of the last days concerning Joseph
and his literal descendants is SO VERY CLEAR for anyone with eyes
to see and with a simple child like belief and faith to accept.
There is no need for any fancy interpretation, or the need for
some degree in theology from some "school of learning." It just
takes the simple belief, a simple looking around over the last
days of the last 2000 years to see what nation and peoples on
this earth could possibly HAVE FULFILLED AND ARE STILL FULFILLING
the LITERAL PROMISES here given to the seed of Joseph for the
" Joseph is a FRUITFUL BOUGH, even a fruitful bough by a
WELL, whose BRANCHES RUN OVER THE WALL"(Gen.49:22).
Can there be any mistaking that this "well" represents the
whole earth, and the fruitful bough running over this well,
represents the peoples of Joseph spreading around this earth to
acquire the literal WEALTH and BOUNTY of this earth like no other
people have ever done since mankind was created. Can there be any
doubt that this was to be Joseph and his sons GROWING into a
MULTITUDE in the midst of the earth, TO SPREAD AROUND THE EARTH
AND TO FINALLY BECOME A NATION AND A COMPANY OF NATIONS THAT
WOULD HOLD THE RICHES OF THIS EARTH AS NONE HAVE EVER BEFORE
"The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and
hated him: but his BOW ABODE IN STRENGTH, and the arms of his
hands were MADE STRONG by the hands of the MIGHTY GOD of Jacob;
from whom is the shepherd, the stone of Israel"(Gen.49:23,24).
What peoples fulfilling all we have seen so far, having been
in existence from the time of Christ, having grown in the midst
of the earth for the last days of the last 2000 years, who have
been basically a peace loving peoples, who have not deliberately
sort and planned and worked at world conquest through armed
warfare. What people have nevertheless grown to such power,
influence and wealth, over the last 2000 years that many other
nations of the world have "sorely grieved him, shot at him, and
Who have envied him and tried to attack and destroy him,
hated him and shot at him in waging war against him time and time
again. Yet have been helped, sometimes in MIRACULOUS ways, that
many have had to admit, could only have been because the hand of
the Almighty God was there to save and deliver from their
Oh, I could go on relating to you with page after page about
such a people who have for the last 2000 years being living these
very promises and prophecies. The HISTORY as recorded by the
ancient Welsh and the Anglo-Saxons of Britain, is full of this
prophecy we here find concerning the last days of the peoples of
Joseph. And strange as it may seem to most of the rest of the
world, we find these people with a STONE that is held by them to
be more precious than any other physical object they posses, but
that is another story for another time.
"Even by the God of your father, who shall help you; and by
the Almighty, who shall BLESS YOU WITH BLESSINGS OF HEAVEN ABOVE,
BLESSINGS OF THE DEEP THAT LIES UNDER, BLESSINGS OF THE BREAST,
AND OF THE WOMB; The blessings of your father have prevailed
above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of
the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and
on the CROWN of the head of him that was separate from his
The physical blessings of the peoples of Joseph in the last
days was to be like no other people have ever experienced. Not
only were they to be an UNCONQUERED people(even the Romans did
not conquer them, but most do not know the truth of the real
history of that age), by many who would try to rule and destroy
them. Not only would they have some special "stone" they gave
reverable homage to as part of their national heritage and
destiny, not only would they experience from time to time
miraculous intervention from the Eternal God to strengthen their
arms and deliver them from their enemies, but they would inherit
the PHYSICAL BLESSINGS of the BOUNTY of this good green and blue
This would all be on the head that would WEAR A CROWN, of
Joseph and his descendants in the LAST DAYS!
Can there be ANY MISTAKING WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE TODAY? I
say to you that the simple believing, un-prejudiced mind of a
small history studying child of the first grades, would
understand and KNOW who these people are from the Scripture
passages we have so far looked at, within the context of the last
2000 years of the last days.
THE PROPHECY AND BLESSING OF MOSES
Before he died Moses gave blessings and prophecies
concerning the sons of Jacob. We find it in Deuteronomy the 33
Here is the blessing of Joseph:
"And of Joseph he said, Blessed of the Lord is his land, for
the precious things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that
couches beneath. And for the precious fruits brought forth by the
sun, and for the precious things put forth by the moon. And for
the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the precious
things of the everlasting hills, and for the precious things of
the earth and fullness thereof, and for the good will of him
that dwelt in the bush: let the blessing come upon the head of
Joseph, and upon the top of the head of him that was separate
from his brethren. His GLORY is like the firstling of his
BULLOCK, and his horns are like the horns of an UNICORN: with
them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth:
and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the
thousands of Manasseh" (verses 13-17).
Some may argue that nothing here is stated about the "last
days" in the fulfilment of this prophecy and blessing. Let them
so argue. The facts of history speak for themselves. There are
peoples on this earth TODAY who have been here for at least
2000 years who HAVE and ARE BROTHER PEOPLES that have inherited
the PHYSICAL BLESSINGS here blessed upon the head of the seed of
Joseph and his two sons Ephraim and Manesseh. There is a people
on this earth TODAY who are known as JOHN-BULL, and who have as
part of their SYMBOLIC COAT OF ARMS HERITAGE - the UNICORN.
Those brother peoples have together in many ways PUSHED (not so
much in open warfare but in colonization) the people to the ends
of the earth.
The blessing and prophecy of Jacob for the last days and
from Moses, both concerning Joseph and his offspring, I submit to
you, do fit together like hand and glove, like horse and
carriage, like sugar and spice and all things nice.
ISRAEL TO BE REMOVED FROM PALESTINE
All 13 tribes of Israel went in to the promised land under
Joshua. Many hundreds of years later after the death of Solomon
there was CIVIL WAR in the land and among the thirteen tribes.
The result was the formation of TWO separate Kingdoms, with two
separate capital cities and two separate Kingly lines. The
Northern Kingdom retained the name ISRAEL, and/or HOUSE OF
ISRAEL. It was made up of 10 tribes and included the peoples of
Joseph - Ephraim and Manesseh, the birthright holders, who would
be blessed in the last days with the blessing we have already
seen. The Southern Kingdom, consisting of three tribes became
known as the HOUSE OF JUDAH, with the capital city being
Jerusalem. The three tribes that made up this southern Kingdom
were Judah, Levi, and Benjamin. The two Kingdoms were also known
as Samaria(the north Kingdom) and Judah(the south Kingdom).
Bible handbooks will show you the line of Kings for each
Kingdom, and the books of Kings and Chronicles outline the
various histories of these two Kingdoms, until their respective
captivities by the Assyrians(taking the house of Israel and
much of Judah captive during the years 745-718 B.C.) and
Babylonians(taking the house of Judah captive during the years
Reading 1 Kings 12 we see that this DIVISION of the 13
tribes into TWO Kingdoms(one with 10 tribes and one with 3
tribes) was ORDAINED OF GOD. It was to be no other way. God would
HAVE IT SO! They civil war was not to be healed back into
ONE nation as before(made up of 13 tribes). God WANTED there to
be a TWO nation split. He was working His work. He knew the END
from the BEGINNING. He had a PLAN for the tribes of Israel that
would be fulfilled right into the last days and up to the coming
of the Messiah in glory to establish the Kingdom of God on earth.
The Ten tribed House of Israel immediately upon their
separation from the three tribed House of Judah, also departed
from the true God and went into idolatry. After many prophets
were sent to them from God to call them to repentance, they were
finally to be punished and sent away into captivity. God used the
Assyrian Empire to punish and take away Israel(Isa.10). They
were carried away to the land of the Assyrians and but only for a
very small individual few(who escaped and fled to the Kingdom of
Judah) they NEVER returned to Palestine (2 Kings 17).
This was also the plan of the Lord, it was His will it be
so. What would seem to be a devastation to the majority of the
peoples of the whole of Israel(all 13 tribes), being taken away
not to return, was to be the further workings of the Lord to the
end time, last days, prophecies for the seed of Abraham, and the
offspring of the sons of Jacob. The Lord knew the end from the
beginning, He knew what was yet to be fulfilled for the peoples
of Israel down through the coming centuries towards the last
days, and how it must be within the context of the plan He had
for all nations of the earth, to the time of the setting up of
His Kingdom, at the coming of the Messiah in glory.
This REMOVAL of most of Israel at this time(including a good
portion of Judah, which is often missed by many) HAD BEEN
FORETOLD TO DAVID YEARS BEFORE.
It had been prophesied to David that God would REMOVE Israel from
the land they NOW dwelt in, the land of Palestine, and move them
to ANOTHER LAND that they would dwell in and be safe from their
This prophecy is found in 2 Samuel chapter seven and verse
"Moreover I WILL(future tense) APPOINT A PLACE FOR MY PEOPLE
ISRAEL, AND I WILL(future tense) PLANT THEM, THAT THEY MAY DWELL
IN A PLACE OF THEIR OWN, AND MOVE NO MORE........."
Some in the past, because of the implications of this verse,
have literally wanted some translating scholars to put this in
the PAST tense. One scholar so propositioned stood firm and
exclaimed that would be deceitful as the Hebrew is CLEARLY in the
FUTURE tense - I WILL(future) appoint a place , and I
WILL(future) PLANT THEM.
And so God removed Israel and much of Judah through the
armies of the Assyrian Empire, never to return to the land of
Palestine. He had begun to fulfil what He had promised and
prophesied to David, that He would appoint a place for Israel,
that He would plant them to dwell in their own place and move no
more, until the last days when all things written would need come
to pass, and the Messiah would come and to Him would the
gathering of the people be.
Israel was to be SIFTED THROUGH THE NATIONS as sand is
sfited through a sieve, yet none were to be lost. God's hand
would lead and guide to fulfil His will and plan for the last
days. " For lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of
Israel among the nations, like as corn is sifted in a sieve, yet
shall not the least grain fall upon the earth" (Amos 9:9).
THE PEOPLES OF ISRAEL DURING THE FIRST CENTURY A.D.
It is written that Jesus said: "You shall not have gone over
the cities of Israel till the Son of man come."
The NT church was to begin. Jesus would mightily empower His
servants and people to go forth to all the world and preach the
good news to every nation, to baptize and make disciples of all
peoples on the face of the earth.
The church grew greatly after that day of Pentecost when the
Holy Spirit came to fill the followers of Christ with His nature
and power. The land of Palestine is not very large in comparison
to the earth's land surface. The cities of that land have never
been so many that the gospel of Christ Jesus could not encompass
them by the true church of God during the first century or today
in this 20th century.
The only logical conclusion to this statement of Jesus that
His people will not have even covered with the truth of God, the
cities of Israel till He comes, is that He knew and we are to
know that the cities and towns of Israel would be SO NUMEROUS
around the world, that even right up to His return, we of the
true church of the Living God, would still be having to spread
and teach the real gospel and truth of the Bible to those cities
I just look at this town of Hampton where my wife and I
live. The people of God are far and few between. The ones that
were here have mainly fallen away or been taken in falsehood and
heresy. Most of the people in this town(not even a city) have
NEVER HEARD THE TRUTH OF GOD! And the same can be said for the
larger city of Saint John(75 thousand people) near by - the vast
majority have still to hear the true Gospel of Jesus Christ!
These words of Jesus that we shall not have gone over the
cities of Israel till the Son of man comes are LIVING WORDS, they
are words FOR TODAY, they are literally being fulfilled as we
draw near to His return. The peoples of Israel and their cities
are FAR MORE THAN 4 million Jews living in a relatively few
cities in a land called Palestine.
At the time of the first century NT church of God, the
people of the tribes of Israel were on the whole FAR AWAY FROM
THE LAND OF PALESTINE.
JAMES the apostle and servant of Jesus Christ KNEW THIS
FACT!! Notice what he wrote:
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, TO
THE TWELVE TRIBES WHICH ARE SCATTERED ABROAD, greeting" (James
Peter also knew the Israelites were far beyond the land of
Palestine. He wrote:
" Peter, apostle of Jesus Christ, to elect sojourners of
DISPERSION of Pontus, of Galatia, of Cappadocia, of Asia, and
Bithynia" (1 Peter 1:1).
This is from the literal Greek as found in the Greek/English
Interlinear by George Ricker Berry, Ph.D.
All peoples of Peter's day, and all scholars of today, known
exactly what is mean when "sojourners of the Dispersion" was used
by the apostle. It meant those Israelites who were still far away
from the physical land of Palestine, who were DISPERSED far into
the world and nations of the Roman Empire.
Jesus knew, the apostles knew, that MOST OF THE PEOPLES OF
THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND THE HOUSE OF JUDAH HAD NEVER RETURNED TO
PALESTINE AFTER THE CAPTIVITY BY THE ASSYRIANS AND THE
BABYLONIANS FROM 745 - 586 B.C.
They knew they were still OUT THERE! Sure they were because
God had said to David He would give them a new place to dwell,
appoint a place for them that they may dwell in a place of their
own, and move no more. God was working His work with Israel,
they were to be led to their new place where they would settle
and move no more till the end of days. There the peoples of
Joseph, the peoples of Ephraim and Manesseh, would GROW TOGETHER
into a GREAT MULTITUDE. That during the time frame of the "last
days" they would inherit the PHYSICAL BLESSINGS promised them by
God as foretold to them by Jacob and Moses.
They would grow together, with the arm of the Lord they
would push the people, they would spread abroad to the east and
to the west, to the north and to the south. They would be as a
vine on the sides of a well. They would find themselves with the
richest and choicest physical blessing of heaven above, the earth
beneath, and the waters under the earth.
OH THE WONDER OF IT ALL
What a time to live my friends. A time when we can see the
written words of the Lord. Words written THOUSANDS of years ago.
Words written in the first book of the Bible - Genesis. Words of
PROMISE from God, accepted in FAITH by Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
and Joseph. Words that were for the last days, given and written
near the beginning of the first days.
And those words HAVE COME TO PASS! Those words ARE COMING
TO PASS. They are being fulfilled RIGHT NOW as you read this.
God is a MIGHTY GOD, able to foretell what will be the end
of nations thousands of years in advance, and ABLE TO BRING TO
PASS WHAT HE HAS PROMISED AND FORETOLD!!
You are witness to the promises given thousands of years ago
to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. That from the seed of Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, and then the sons of Joseph, there would arise a
people who would first of all GROW TOGETHER, and then become
A GREAT NATION AND A COMPANY OT FULLNESS OF NATIONS, WHO WOULD
INHERIT THE PHYSICAL BLESSINGS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH.
You are witness to the fulfilment of those Genesis
prophecies in the end of days by people of the BRITISH
COMMONWEALTH AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The greatest single nation this earth has ever seen or will
see, is right before your eyes in the United States of America,
who have physical riches and physical blessing that are mind
What mighty empire can boast of the longevity of life,
physical riches unbounded, colonization and service to other
nations in education, medical, business, theology, laws
of governance, and many other charitable avenues, than the great
empire of the British peoples, who spread abroad and became a
company of nations?
Here was and is a people who after colonization around the
world, after helping and serving and giving to other nations(sure
there were wrongs done at time on their part, but the good done
out ranks the wrongs by far, just ask the people of Jamaica if
you have any doubts about that. I worked with them in Florida for
two years, and they are a wonderful people with the highest love
and regard for the British), after educating them to the point of
independence and self rule, MANY of those nations voluntarily
CHOSE to stay connected to Britain and the British Throne, so
forming the British Commonwealth of nations.
Has it ever been said that such was ever done before,
nations, not by armed force or military power of dictatorship,
but by peaceful means and of VOLUNTARY WILL chose to remain
connected together as ONE LARGE family of peoples? I think not!
Ah, truly the WONDER OF IT ALL is great and mighty, and you
are here as witness that God is faithful to His promises of old.
This should send shivers running down your spine, to be here to
see the prophecies of Genesis taking place before your eyes.
This alone is one of the greatest proofs that there IS A GOD IN
HEAVEN, WHO IS ALIVE, AND WHO HAS GIVE US HIS INSPIRED WORD
CONTAINED IN THE BIBLE.
The pages of that Bible have MUCH TO SAY about and
concerning the peoples of the British Commonwealth and the United
Sates of America, and also the Jewish peoples. The pages of the
Bible have more to say to those peoples than any other people on
the face of this earth. There are prophecies after prophecies
that must yet be fulfilled towards those peoples of Joseph and
Judah and the whole of Israel.
Those prophecies WILL COME TO PASS! The Lord of heaven and
earth has declared they will. There is nothing more sure than
the word of prophecy that we do well to take heed unto as unto a
light that shines in a dark place.
There is much sorrow and pain and hardship to come upon the
peoples of Israel and Judah in the time of the end, IF they will
not REPENT and turn back to serving their God with all their
heart, soul, and mind.
God loves them, they are still His. And because of that
fact, and that He will yet cleans them and give them a new heart,
fill them with His Spirit, He will punish them through their
lovers. Those they think are their friends and even their lovers,
God will use to correct and chasten. Israel and Judah must yet
return to the lands of their enemies in death and slavery, but
out of it they will find God in deep and true repentance. Jesus
will return and the last trumpet will sound, and Israel and Judah
shall come with crying and weeping and joy unspeakable. They
lands where they will have been taken, they shall come. In that
day Israel will be delivered from their enemies and Judah shall
The Spirit of the Lord shall be poured out on them, they
shall have a heart of flesh and not of stone, the laws of the
Lord shall be written in their hearts. The outcasts of Israel
shall return to Zion, to Jerusalem, to the land of promise.
There they shall build the old wastes and dwell in unwalled
At that time they shall KNOW(which they the people of Israel
do not now know) they are the peoples of Israel, and that God is

" For thus says the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both
search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeks out his
flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered;
so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all the
places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them from
the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed
them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the
inhabited places of the country. I will feed them in a good
pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall their fold
be: there shall they live in a good fold, and in a fat pasture
shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.
I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down,
says the Lord God. I will seek that which was lost, and bring
again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was
broken, and will strengthen that which was sick......Therefore
will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I
will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up one
shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant
David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. And I
the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among
them; I the Lord have spoken it. And I will make a covenant of
peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land:
and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the
woods. And I will make them and the places round about my hill a
blessing; and I will cause the showers to come down in his
season; there shall be showers of blessing........THUS SHALL THEY
KNOW THAT I THE LORD GOD AM WITH THEM, AND THAT THEY, EVEN THE
HOUSE OF ISRAEL ARE MY PEOPLE, SAYS THE LORD GOD. AND YOU MY
FLOCK, THE FLOCK OF MY PASTURE, ARE MEN, AND I AM YOUR GOD, SAYS
THE LORD GOD" (Taken from Ezekiel chapter 34, the KJV
