Descendants of Joseph and their blessings
by Pastor Paul Mullet
Undoubtedly the most revealing of the birthright promises held within the Holy Scriptures is in Genesis 49. As such we find within them that Jacob was blessing and prophesying about each of his sons’ descendants (seedline) “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” (Genesis 49:1). Did you notice that the blessings that Jacob pronounces on the descendants of Joseph for the last days are monumental.
“Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: 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 thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)
Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: The blessings of thy 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 brethren” (Genesis 49:22-26).
Now, we see that these prophetic passages tell us that Joseph’s descendants (seedline) “in the last days” will live in a very productive, well-watered and very fruitful land. (Sound like someplace on earth other than Israel?) They will be a RACE or people who have greatly expanded their territory and influence, politically, militarily, economically and culturally, a RACE or people “whose branches run over the wall,” or in other words, beyond their natural borders. They will be a race that, on occasions, will be attacked by other nations (races) but will be victorious. Their triumphs will be miraculous or providential, all because Yahweh is their helper and source of their blessings. (Sounds familiar doesn’t it?)
They will be a race who live in a favorable climate that easily supports their steadily expanding population. They will enjoy the blessings of good crops, vast herds of livestock and extensive natural resources such as fine stands of timber and valuable minerals mined from their soil. (Does this sound like the state of Israel? NO!)
In other words, we can expect them to posses the choice blessings and resources of this earth. All of these blessings are to be theirs “IN THE LAST DAYS” (in part Genesis 49:1).
Where can we find the descendants (seedline) of Joseph, the “lost tribes” of Ephraim and Manasseh? This list of blessings completely eliminates most of the nations of the world as forerunners of this blessing. To find these “lost two tribes” we must first ask; “Which nation possess these blessings in our world?” Yahweh promised all of these blessings to the descendants (seedline) of Joseph “in the last days”. Since Yahweh does not lie, we can trust in Him to keep those promises.
What does the evidence tell us? As we will soon learn, the evidence is overwhelmingly in Yahweh’s favor. If we believe (and you should) the promises and Yahweh’s fulfillment of them, then our outlook toward the world will be quite different from the outlook of those who remain blind and ignorant of this TRUE Holy Scripture knowledge.
In the nearly 3,700 years since Yahweh granted these promises, few nations can lay any claim to blessings anywhere near these. Even fewer yet, can claim the kind of economic stature and national prominence, even “super-power” status, that were promised unto Jacob’s sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, “in the last days”.
Two, and only two candidates, however, PERFECTLY meet all of the exacting criteria of these prophecies: those two my friends are the United States of America, and what was at one time known as the British Commonwealth of nations. How well then, does this apparent fit mesh with the evidence we find? To answer that question, we will embark on a study of historical evidence of the tribes of Israel from their very beginning as a nation all the way down to our present time.
My next article, to some may seem out of place for me, but yet it is one that is needed. I will give my opinion on the state of this movement, and the lack of people doing anything about the problems that are plaguing our race. I see to many people sitting behind the key boards of their computers and talking a great talk, but there is no walk in their steps. One must realize that this is not a movement anymore it is a MISSION to save our PEOPLE from the clutches of annihilation at the hands of the serpent and its minions. Divine Truth Ministries is going to be announcing our first ever Rally that will only be announced location and time will be on a need to know basis, to insure we can accomplish the mission allotted to us by Yahweh. This rally will be held in direct response to those that would seek our destruction, to let them know that we are not afraid, and if it is just myself that shows so be it, at least I am doing something to secure our future, what little we have left.
