The B-2 stealth bomber program is one of the USA’s most closely-guarded weapons programs. The link below (sent to me by a reader) relates that the Americans have invited the British military to have some of its pilots trained on the B-2 bombers. This is an example of the very deep trust that has characterized the American-British “special relationship” for a long time. The link reports that three RAF pilots have now been trained to fly the B-2 bomber, a warplane whose capabilities and numbers are closely-held secrets of the U.S. Air Force.

These nations share a common Anglo-Saxon culture, the English language and a common lineage and heritage. This relationship was prophesied in the Bible in a prophecy about the latter days found in Genesis 48:14-49:28. Genesis 49:1 states that this prophecy about Jacob’s sons is for the latter days. Much evidence that we are living in the “latter days” is presented in my article, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days?, available at the articles link of this website.

Genesis 49 gives prophecies about all of the tribes of Israel in the latter days (our modern era), but Genesis 48:14-20 focus specifically on the birthright tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh (Joseph’s sons). Manasseh was prophesied to be a single great “people” or nation (verse 19), and Ephraim was prophesied to be a “multitude” (a grouping or company) of nations (verse 19). They were prophesied to “grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth” (verse 16) indicating that they would have to be found among the larger nations on the earth in our time. Verse 16 also prophesies that the name of Isaac would be stamped on both tribes throughout history…and so it has happened. The Persians called them the “Saka” when they were in Asia as “brother” Scythian and Parthian tribes. The Greeks called them the “Sacae” and the Romans called them the “Saxons.” All these names preserve the original name of Isaac, which Genesis 48:16 stamped on their progeny for all time.

The USA is the single great nation of Manasseh (see my article on The USA in Prophecy at my homepage), and the British nations of Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand are the “multitude” (or company) of nations that have clearly fulfilled the prophecy about Ephraim in the modern world. As one would expect, these nations are still “brother” nations in the modern world, and they have this relationship because they are literally “brother” tribes of the so-called “ten tribes of Israel” which were prophesied to become too numerous to count after they went into exile from the ancient Promised Land circa 721 BC (Hosea 1:10).

God challenges all people to see that he really is the Creator God in Isaiah 41:21-26 because of his ability to bring to pass his ancient biblical prophecies. The “special relationship” between the Americans and the British (and the fact that they are one single American nation allied to a group of related British nations) has very specifically fulfilled Genesis 48’s prophecy.  This fulfillment (and many others) prove that the Bible is the inspired word of a very real Creator God who exercises “hands on” sovereignty over the nations. Those who choose to ignore this fact do so at great risk to themselves as we progress deeper into the latter days of this age.
