The Christian Heritage of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - Part 3
AMERICA: The Western State of Israel
By: Tommie Spurgeon
I always knew from early on in my studies that Ephraim would have to end up in the West. I didn’t know for sure how this would come about. I have always taught that because so many Jews lived here that God had somehow spiritually placed the banner of Ephraim over our heads so that the Jews that lived here were spiritual Ephraim. The reason I believed that Ephraim or Israel would end up in the West is because during the wilderness experience Ephraim and his group were located on the West end of the Tabernacle when Israel camped. Ephraim had the double portion and the promise of the birthright so I knew that it had to be significant.
Ephraim’s camp on the West End of the Tabernacle was very close to the most holy place in the Temple and the glory of the Lord radiated out over his encampment more so than the other tribes. It is here in America that the Gospel has been preached more than any other nation in the world. In fact we were founded as a Christian nation in spite of all the opposition from the secularist that are in our country. Judah's encampment however was on the East End of the Tabernacle where the gate to the outer court was located as well as the sacrifice altar. This is very significant in Bible Prophecy because it tells us that in the East, in a nation called Judah, the Gate to Salvation would be opened and that the sacrifice for sin would take place there. Jesus himself became the sacrifice for sin and he became the gate to salvation and the spiritual temple his own body. This all happened in the Land of Judah, in the eastern part of the world, just as the Tabernacle layout predicted. Ephraim being on the West End was a prediction as well only it has been a mystery for a very long time.
The Western End of the Tabernacle is significant because Israel was reduced to two houses and all of the other tribes were incorporated into one or the other of these two, Ephraim or Judah. Until I saw in scripture that God had promised Israel (Ephraim) that they would be given a nation of their own I found it hard to understand and to accept what could possibly be. But, guess what? God did promise Israel, the Northern Kingdom, a land of their own and that would not be located in the land of Canaan or Palestine. This has literally blown me away because it has drastically changed my thinking and has opened my understanding about Israel and America.
