Ephraim, USA and the lake of Galilee … or Lake of Kinneret!
The Northern kingdom of Israel is also known as Ephraim in honor of the first king of the 10 Northern Tribes that formed it. They were dispersed among the Gentiles in 2,800 bC. In the year 2014 aC we find evidence pointing out that these Ephraimites probably are blended into the Gentiles that believed that Yeshua of Nazareth was the promised Messiah in the Torah and came to establish the United States of America.
The blessings poured on America are understandable under the light of the Word of God as made principally of immigrants of mixed Israelites and gentile that believed all of the Word of God. They even helped their brother JUDAH, the ones that remained unbelievers until now, to establish Israel back in the Promised Land. What an honor for Ephraim (USA) that The Lord forgave their unbelief and rebellion and allowed them to see Him through His Son Yeshua HaMashiach and then their heart inhabited by the Holy Spirit , as the number one country in the world, USA aided their brother in forming the state of Israel…
In 2014, The love bond between The State of Israel and USA mirroring of the love that was meant to be between the two kingdoms of Ancient Israel: The Northern and the Southern kingdom, or also known as Ephraim and JUDAH respectively.
Am I saying that USA is Ephraim? Yes, and there have been many others that have seen it before us.
The more I meditate in the Word of Yah, the more I see in USA Ephraim.
I. The Declaration of Independence of Ephraim (USA)
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
A. “All men are created equal”
The fathers of the foundation of USA (Ephraim) inspired the birth of this country looking at what God the Father has left in writing in the Holy Scriptures: Man is created in the image of God and his descendants hence were all created equal in Adam, the image of The Creator.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
B. Unalienable rights or built-in rights:
1. Built-in right of LIFE:
Exodus 20:13 “You shall not murder.
Psalm 139:13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
2. Built-in right to LIBERTY
“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
3. Built-in right to peruse HAPPINESS.
To the man who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.
But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice.
The Declaration of Independence of USA, Ephraim comes to be the most famous English sentence in the world… And English is the universal language in 2014.
We see that many countries inspired on this declaration, presumed their own independence and included it into their own.
According to the report from “The Contagion of Sovereignty: Declarations of Independence since 1776″ the following countries were inspired in the context of the Independence of USA (Ephraim) to declare their own Independence:
“January 1804 from the Haitian Revolution, the United Provinces of New Granada in 1811, the Argentine Declaration of Independence in 1816, the Chilean Declaration of Independence in 1818, Costa Rica in 1821, El Salvador in 1821, Guatemala in 1821, Honduras in (1821), Mexico in 1821, Nicaragua in 1821, Peru in 1821, Bolivian War of Independence in 1825, Uruguay in 1825, Ecuador in 1830, Colombia in 1831, Paraguay in 1842, Dominican Republic in 1844, Texas Declaration of Independence in March 1836, California Republic in November 1836, Hungarian Declaration of Independence in 1849, Declaration of the Independence of New Zealand in 1835, Czechoslovak declaration of independence from 1918 drafted in Washington D.C. with Gutzon Borglum among the drafters, Rhodesia in 11 November 1965.”
Ephraim the big brother, inspires and carries his brothers and sisters to Life, liberty and the pursued of Happiness.
God tells us through Jacob in the Bible that Ephraim will be a multitude of nations :
Genesis 48:18 And Joseph said to his father, “Not so, my father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head.” 19 But his father refused and said, “I know, my son, I know. He also shall become a people, and he also shall be great; but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his descendants shall become a multitude of nations.” 20 So he blessed them that day, saying, “By you Israel will bless, saying, ‘May God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh!’ ” And thus he set Ephraim before Manasseh.
Moses gives us a clue in the Torah of what Ephraim, the son of Joseph who inherits his blessing, will mean to the countries of the earth:
Deuteronomy 33: 16 With the precious things of the earth and its fullness, And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush. Let the blessing come ‘on the head of Joseph, And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.’His glory is like a firstborn bull, And his horns like the horns of the wild ox; Together with them He shall push the peoples To the ends of the earth; They are the ten thousands of Ephraim, And they are the thousands of Manasseh.“
So I wonder, in the millennium which part of the land of Israel would The Lord bless to Ephraim?
I think that by logic, The Lord blesses Israel and calls it the apple of His eyes. Ephraim betrays The Lord and worships other entities before JUDAH does…Also in 100 years of Ephraim reigning in the North of Israel, not even one King is faithfully to our Heavenly Father. In the Southern kingdom, there is one King that is faithful to Yah, for every 4-5 unfaithful kings. Hence, Ephraim is punished first, being band from the land of Israel and dispersed through the world, where he mixes with the Gentiles and no one can identify him…
But, after the Messiah comes to Judah, and the first believers of the First century are Jews, the message gets to the 10 tribes dispersed and mixed with the Gentiles:
James 1:1 James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Yeshua-Jesus the Messiah to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings!
First in today Turkey, Ephraimites hear the voice of His Pastor and believe, they are call Christians for the first time:
and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.
Then Greece follows in the next group of believers, the official universal language of the day and today we can see Greece flags bearing the Blue Cross, as a testimony of the teachings in Word and action in the mist of such tribulation of Saul do Tarsus or the Apostle Paul.
Then Rome and Europe becomes believers mixed with religions especially after the fourth century aC, forcing eventually the emigration to America seeking the built-in rights described above, bringing Ephraim finally to America. Where Ephraim flourishes as he follows his guide in the Sacred Scriptures of the Word of God.
Yah thru Ezekiel takes chapters 47-48, the last 2 chapters of his prophecy, to tells us how the Land of Israel will be redistributed in the millennium…And if you follow the words closely, Ephraim, the believer in Yeshua of Nazareth as the Messiah of the world according to the written Holy Scriptures, will probably be given the land of Galilee, which makes so much sense, since Yeshua-Jesus grew up, enlighten the world with the Gospel Message and spent most of His life on earth on this area.
Remember this chart?
As more and more new genetic markers SNPs are discovered in the non-recombinant area of the male y-chromosome, then the charts and names of the haplogroups of the Y-chromosome are changed. The genetics does not change, only the names are changed to accommodate the new discoveries. We still have the same basis root letter haplogroup from A to T, But instead of giving to the sub-groups long-hand name (old like E1b1b) they gave them the shorthand name(new E-M215), which is the last genetic marker on that branch of the Y-chromosome phylogenetic tree, in which that person was tested and has it.
So our chart above would be:
OLD NAME = NEW NAME AS OF 2014
J1 = J-M267
J2 = J-M172
E1b1b1 = J-M215
R1b = R-M269 (M343)
R1a = R-M198 (M17, M512, M417)
G = G-M201
Q= Q-M242, Q-M3
T= L-206, L-445, L-208
I = M-253 & M-223
You can find information regarding the new chart of classification of the Y-chromosome or Phylogenetic Tree and each specific Y-haplogroup according to science at:
We do not agree with the number of years decreed to the different Y-chromosome haplogroups until the genetic mutation rates are proven, up to now they are just speculations. Below we pasted some of the information in their site colored green for the two most common haplogroups among the Jews:
Y-DNA haplogroup J evolved in the ancient Near East and was carried into North Africa, Europe, Central Asia, Pakistan and India. J2 lineages originated in the area known as the Fertile Crescent. The main spread of J2 into the Mediterranean area is thought to have coincided with the expansion of agricultural peoples during the Neolithic period. The timing of the demographic events that brought J2 to Central Asia, Pakistan, and India is not yet known. J1 lineages may have a more southern origin, as they are more often found in the Levant region, other parts of the Near East, and North Africa, with a sparse distribution in the southern Mediterranean flank of Europe, and in Ethiopia.
There is a descending gradient in the frequency of occurrence of haplogroup J from the Middle East toward the northwest of Europe, reaching about 3% of the population on the northwest Atlantic coast. The occurrence of J in Europe is undoubtedly due both to the Neolithic expansion and to episodic migrations, though the relative proportion of those two sources is controversial and may not be the same in different locations.
A significant fraction of Jews belong to haplogroup J, but Jews represent a small minority of the European members of the haplogroup. The “Cohen Modal Haplotype” is a specific set of six Y-STR marker values that occurs in both J1 and J2, though at a much higher frequency in J1
Y-DNA haplogroup E would appear to have arisen in northern hemisphere of Africa based on the concentration and variety of E subclades in that area today. E1b1 is by far the lineage of greatest geographical distribution. It has two major sub-lineages, E1b1a and E1b1b. E1b1a is a lineage that originated and expanded from West or Central Africa to Eastern Africa and Southern Africa. E1b1b probably evolved either in Northeast Africa or the Near East and then expanded to the west–both north and south of the Mediterranean Sea. E1b1b1 clusters are seen today in Western Europe, Southeast Europe, the Near East, Northeast Africa and Northwest Africa.
May we all continue to give 100% of ourselves searching for the lost tribes of Israel and when we cannot give anymore the Lord will intervene and reveal the secret things that only He can do and such knowledge will benefit man and his descendants.
Deuteronomy 29:29 The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law
