The Christian Heritage of THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - Part 4
AMERICA: The Western State of Israel
By: Tommie Spurgeon
When Jacob adopted Ephraim and Manasseh, Joseph’s sons, He prophesied that Ephraim would become a multitude of nations. In the Hebrew the word for nations is "Gowy" This word was usually used referring to Gentile nations. Ephraim and Manasseh were half Gentile although Joseph was their father and he was a Hebrew their mother was an Egyptian, a Gentile. Because of this Jacob adopted Ephraim and Manasseh as his own sons and said let my name be upon them, meaning I am their father now so let them be named by the name of Israel, they are sons of Israel.
Ephraim becoming a multitude of "Gowy" has little meaning to most people in fact without understanding the impact of this fact they often think the multitude of nations was nothing more than the ten tribes that was given to Ephraim when Israel was divided. Let’s look at this possibility. Ephraim and Manasseh themselves could be interpreted to be "Gowy", or Gentiles because they were born from a Gentile bride but not the other eight tribes. None of them were "Gowy" or of any Gentile descent. So the meaning of this has to go way beyond Ephraim being composed of the ten tribes and gathered in Northern Israel.
If you were to ask a Jew from Israel where Ephraim is today in most cases they will tell you "Gentiles, they have become Gentiles. You see they believe that once Ephraim left Assyria and eventually crossed the Caucasus Mountains that they literally intermarried with Gentiles to the point that they became Gentiles. They just vanished into the Gentile nations to never exist again. Most Jews believe that the word "Gowy" in Genesis means Gentiles even if we don’t.
Ephraim has forgotten who he is and the Bible gives the idea that he would. Many people today in searching for the descendants of the Ten Tribes try to find people that are keeping the customs of the Jews. This is a real mistake, these people had walked away from most of that long before their captivity, and they had been worshipping other Gods and had adapted all kinds of Gentile ways. It is unlikely that they would be keeping the customs of the Jews since they didn’t want to keep them anyway. What we must do is look for the nation in the world that describes what God promised for these people in the last days.
