The first linkbelow from the British media reports that a group of British MPs (Members of Parliament) have stated that “Britain’s special relationship with the US…no longer exists.” Such issues as British cooperation with American foreign renditions and the perception that the UK is “America’s poodle” re: overseas war issues are cited as reasons for this statement. The report containing this language originated with a Foreign Affairs Committee of the House of Commons. It is important to note that the entire British Parliament did not adopt this language, but rather it was contained in a report within the jurisdiction of a Parliamentary committee. Nevertheless, this is a noteworthy fissure in the longstanding “Special Relationship” enjoyed by the USA and the British in both peacetime and wartime.

The American-British “Special Relationship” has long endured due to a biblically-revealed origin. The patriarchs of the Bible ( Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) inherited the “birthright” blessings of the Covenant God made with Abraham. When Jacob, latter called “Israel,” died, he conveyed the birthright blessings to the sons of Joseph. These two sons were named Ephraim and Manasseh, and the birthright blessings remained on their descendants in perpetuity. Israel’s blessing ceremony is described in Genesis 48, and it prophesies that the descendants of Manasseh would become a single great nation (verse 19), but the descendants of Ephraim would be a “multitude” or “company of nations” (verse 19). My article, The USA in Bible Prophecy (available at the home page of this website) extensively describes the reasons why the USA is the “single great nation” of Manasseh in our modern world. The British nations (Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) are the “company of nations” which are the descendants of Manasseh’s younger brother, Ephraim. These nations have abundantly inherited the birthright blessings given to them by their forefathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel.

The “special relationship” of the American and British people is explained by the fact that they are, indeed, “brother” tribes of the so-called “lost” ten tribes of Israel which migrated out of the Promised Land in the 8th century BC and eventually built new empires and kingdoms as they migrated elsewhere. Hosea 1:10 prophesied that these ten tribes of Israel would experience explosive population growth after they were exiled from the Promised Land, and Genesis 21:12 prophesied the birthright tribes would always be known by the name of Isaac. The Persian name for the ten tribes of Israel was the “Saka,” the Greek name for them was the “Sacae,” and the Roman name for them was the “Saxons.” All these terms preserve the name of “Isaac.” Since we derive our historical terms from the Roman tradition, the Americans and British are known today as the “Saxon” nations instead of the “Saka” or “Sacae.” However, their origin as the Israelite tribes of Manasseh and Eprhaim is easily confirmed by both secular and biblical evidence. You can read my aforementioned article at my homepage for some of the evidence, and more evidence about other tribes is included in the Articles and Speeches links at this website. Comprehensive (and irrefutable) information is available in my 4-book series about the history of the ten tribes of Israel which can be obtained at the Books link of this website). The fact that biblical prophecies about Ephraim and Manasseh have been explicitly fulfilled by the British and American nations confirms that the God of the Bible is, indeed, the Creator and that he is guiding the destinies of modern nations (as he promised in Isaiah 41:21-26 that he would always do).

What does the Bible say about the ties between Ephraim (the British) and Manasseh (the Americans) in the latter days? Does it predict any kind of rupture between them? No, it doesn’t. Genesis 48 and 49 are companion chapters that offer prophecies about all the tribes of Israel in the latter days (Genesis 49:1). The private blessing by Israel of the sons of Joseph occurs first in Genesis 48, and then all the sons of Israel are blessed with latter-day pronouncements in Genesis 49. In Genesis 49, there is no separate prophecy for the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. They are lumped together under the term “Joseph” (the name of their father) in verses 22-26, which strongly indicates that their destinies will be so closely intertwined that what befalls one in the latter days will befall the other.

Even the link below citing the views of some disgruntled MPs acknowledges that the US-British relationship is “‘extremely close and valuable’ in a number of areas, particularly intelligence cooperation.” [Emphasis added.] This is likely an oblique reference to the secretive global intelligence-gathering alliance of five nations in what is called Project Echelon. It is a global intelligence alliance which monitors all forms of communications around the earth, and the five allied nations which conduct this intelligence (i.e. “spying”) operation are the USA, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. These are the five Anglo-Saxon nations identified in my books and writings as the modern nations of the Israelite tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. In other words, Echelon is the little-known global intelligence alliance of the modern House of Joseph even as the Mossad is the global intelligence operation of the modern House of Judah. The second link below (which offers much information about the secretive Echelon operation) draws upon information amassed by the ACLU back in 1999. Echelon has been in operation for a long time. The second link notes that “The US government has gone to great lengths to keep Ecehlon a secret,” but it adds that Australia “spilled the beans” and admitted Echelon was real. Echelon’s activities and methodologies are “highly classifed.” No doubt! I’ll also bet that as the world has changed in the last 11 years, other nations allied to the modern House of Joseph also benefit from and contribute to the intelligence gathering services of Echelon. It is quite possible, given how Wall Street banks have essentially taken over the US Department of Treasury with the permission of a gullible US Congress, that Echelon’s intelligence-gathering assets have been co-opted by the National Central Banks and large Wall Street and London banks that consitute Babylon the Great in Revelation 17-18. Echelon’s capacities may well be at the service of Babylon the Great’s efforts to keep its global powers in place over the nations.

Revelation 17-18 prophesies categorically that the global financial/monetary system of Babylon the Great will collapse in the latter days at a time of God’s choosing, but Genesis 49 contains no prophecy that the nations of the ten tribes of Israel will collapse at that same time. This allows for some interesting possibilities in how prophecies may be fulfilled. Maybe the “seven heads and ten horns” which have been oppresively “ridden” by Babylon the Great’s system and which are prophesied to destroy Babylon the Great’s system will be the G-7 nations and the nations of the modern ten tribes of Israel.  These very nations are the ones which have long been “ridden” by Babylon the Great’s system so they are logical candidates to overthrow the domination of Babylon the Great’s system.  Bills to audit the US Federal Reserve Board in the US Congress, German Prime Minister Angela Merkel’s open criticism of the US Federal Reserve Board  and media exposes of the power of Goldman Sachs over US government agencies and Goldman-Sachs’ possession of a market-rigging computer software program as well as recent revelations that Goldman Sachs helped Greece deceive other nations about its real levels of debt are, no doubt, turning leaders in many nations against the US Federal Reserve Board, Goldman Sachs and their allied insitutions within the Babylon the Great system. The clock is ticking on the survival of Babylon the Great’s system. I hope you are spiritually and personally prepared because we are fated to live in very momentous times when many biblical prophesies will be fulfilled and national “comfort zones” will be greatly altered.
