The incredible relationship between the 13th Tribe and the 13 Colonies that became America!
The Number “13” and the Identity of “Ephraim”!
Prophecy? Are we the descendants of the ancient tribe of
Ephraim? The majority of investigators who have studied
this question believe that the British people are Ephraim and
that the United States is Manasseh, his brother. But what
does the Biblical and historical evidence really tell us? Here
is point-blank the most direct and indisputable evidence and
salient PROOF that it is the United States who is really end-
It is well known that the number "13" is the number of the United States of America. The United States began with 13 colonies. The original U.S. flag had 13 stars, representing the initial 13 states. It also contained 13 stripes, 7 red and 6 white. The American seal also bears witness to the number 13 in its composition.
Over the breast of the eagle on the United States seal is a shield; the shield of FAITH. It has thirteen stripes or bars, red and white, signifying the number 13; the number of the original American colonies.
The number 13, of course, was the number of the tribes of ancient Israel, since the tribe of Joseph became two tribes: Ephraim and Manasseh. There were twelve tribes of Israel, but Joseph had two sons and each of them became a tribe; hence, there were thirteen tribes in all, with Ephraim, the youngest son, being number 13.
The U.S. shield contains 13 paleways or stripes which represent the 13 original colonies. The shield is not fastened to the eagle, but spread across in front of it, as if held there by the unseen Hand of God.
In the eagle's beak there is a scroll, representing the proclamation of liberty and freedom, and justice for all: the Constitution of the United States, based on the laws of God and the Torah which God gave to ancient Israel.
The motto "E Pluribus Unum" means "One from Many," or "Out of many, One." It represents UNITY; the FIFTY united States of America! This One nation combines the peoples and ethnic groups of many different nations and peoples from around the world: out of many, ONE. And if we remained faithful to the laws of God, this national UNITY would be preserved forever. But if we BREAK God's laws, then the very unity we possess will become disunity and division - the "unity" will become a memory, a distant dream, forgotten in onrushing calamity and cataclysm.
