AMERICAN “IMPERIALISM” – Israel: “COLONIZE and SPREAD ABROAD”
American “Imperialism” is NO “ACCIDENT”
“When the most high DIVIDED to the NATIONS THEIR INHERITANCE, when he SEPARATED the sons of Adam, he SET the BOUNDS of the people according to the number of the children of ISRAEL” – Deuteronomy 32:8 –
Genesis 28:14 “and THY SEED shall be as the DUST of the earth, and thou SHALT SPREAD ABROAD to the WEST, and to the EAST, and to the NORTH, and to the south: and IN THEE and in THY SEED shall ALL the FAMILIES of the EARTH be BLESSED”
Genesis 35:11 and God said unto him … be FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY; a nation and a COMPANY of NATIONS (“commonwealth”) shall be of thee
Genesis 48:19 His seed shall become a MULTITUDE of NATIONS
“O LORD, thou hast INCREASED the nation: thou art glorified: thou hadst REMOVED IT FAR UNTO ALL the ENDS of the EARTH”
“I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed them: and they shall increase as they have increase
Zechariah 10:9 and I will SOW THEM AMONG the people: and they shall REMEMBER ME in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.” – Zechariah 10:8
Israel: FIRST AMONG the NATIONS
Genesis 27:29 Let people SERVE thee, and nations BOW DOWN to thee: be lord over thy brethren, and let thy mother’s sons BOW DOWN to thee: cursed be every one that curseth thee, and blessed be he that blesseth thee” – Jeremiah 31:7
INVINCIBLE by OUTSIDE FORCES
II Samuel 7:10 – moreover I WILL APPOINT a place for MY PEOPLE ISRAEL, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a PLACE of THEIR OWN, and MOVE NO MORE; neither shall the children of WICKEDNESS AFFLICT THEM any more, as beforetime
Genesis 49 also prophesies that the tribe of Joseph will have considerable MILITARY STRENGTH in the latter days. The phrase “his bow abode in strength” refers to WEAPONRY. This also has been true in the modern world, as the greatest collection of military power in recorded history was in the hands of America and Great Britain at the end of World War II. America has been a WORLD SUPERPOWER in the postWorld War II period with its forces garrisoned in Europe, Korea, and many other places around the world.
America is STILL the most powerful nation on earth. while the British have scrapped most of their famous naval fleet in recent decades, it still has a respectable nuclear arsenal
God’s use of the word “BOW” to depict the WEAPONRY of Ephraim and Manasseh is significant. Bows and arrows were favored weapons of ancient israel, parthia, scythia and england in the middle ages. Parthia dedicated half of its cavalry to bowmen who fired arrows at their enemies, and English soldiers of the middle ages were famous for their use of the LONGBOW. When scythia sent a symbolic message to king darius depicting how the persians would fall under scythian attack, they sent a clump of arrows to symbolize their military power.
The twin symbols of “a BRANCH” and “ARROWS,” are prophesied in GENESIS 49 – an eagle clutching “an olive branch” signifying America’s desire for peace while the arrows in its talons signifying prowess in war. Is it only COINCIDENCE that the ancient Scythians (a “Sacae” nation) used the same war sign as modern America (a “Saxon” nation): a clump of arrows?
The EAGLE was a common Scythian symbol. one Scythian eaglecrest was found in a pose resembling the eaglecrest of the U.S.: both show eagles with outstretched wings and flared tail feathers (the scythian eagle holds prey in its talons, the american eagle holds a branch and a clump of arrows in its talons) The eaglecrest of the U.S. has its roots in the Scythian eagle crest, a manasseh-ite thirteen arrows in one talon, thirteen leaves on the olive branch in the other talon, thirteen stars over the eagle’s head, thirteen bars in the shield over the eagle’s body, and even thirteen letters in the phrase “e pluribus unum”.
The British-American alliance was typically MERCIFUL to CONQUERED ENEMIES, exhibiting a characteristic of their forefather JOSEPH. this attribute of WISE and BENEVOLENT RULE was also common among the Scythians, the parthians and among the goths who conquered the Romans. America’s MERCY and MAGNANIMOUS behavior in RESTORING the people and economies of its former enemies, Japan and Germany, after World War II is a marvelous example of this trait of the tribe of JOSEPH.
Deuteronomy 33:13-16 prophesies that EPHRAIM and MANASSEH WILL INHERIT GREAT MATERIAL WEALTH. The sons of JOSEPH -a FRUITFUL bough:
Genesis 49:25 – the Almighty, who shall BLESS thee with blessings of HEAVEN ABOVE, blessings of the DEEP that LIETH UNDER, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb:
Deuteronomy 33:13 – and of JOSEPH he said, BLESSED of the Lord be his land, for the PRECIOUS things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath,
14 and for the PRECIOUS FRUITS BROUGHT FORTH BY THE SUN, and for the PRECIOUS THINGS put forth by the moon, 15 and for the chief things of the ancient mountains, and for the PRECIOUS THINGS of the lasting hills,
16 and for the precious things of the earth and fulness thereof, and for the good will of him that dwelt in the bush: let the BLESSING come upon the head of JOSEPH, and upon the top of the head of him that was SEPARATED FROM HIS BRETHREN.
Deuteronomy 33:19 they shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall SUCK of the ABUNDANCE of the seas, and of TREASURES HID in the sand
Their prophesied INHERITANCE of the “BLESSINGS of the HEAVEN above … PRECIOUS things of the lasting hills, and … of the earth” mean that these tribes will have BLESSINGS of temperate CLIMATE, AGRICULTURAL PROSPERITY and NATURAL RESOURCES. (oil, iron ore, coal, gold, silver, etc.). All these things were INHERITED by America and the English nations. the great wealth of theAnglo-Saxon nations has NOT been a result of “GOOD LUCK”, BUT CAUSED by the INTERVENTION of GOD in WORLD AFFAIRS to implement his PROMISES and PROPHECIES AMONG the NATIONS.
the BLESSINGS of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills
Genesis 49:26 “the Lord thy god bringeth thee into a GOOD LAND, a land of brooks of WATER, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills” – Deuteronomy 8:7, 9

“of JOSEPH he said, blessed of the Lord be his land, for the PRECIOUS things of heaven, for the dew, and for the deep that coucheth beneath“ – Deuteronomy 33

Deuteronomy 2:25 – “this day will I begin to put the DREAD of THEE and the FEAR of thee UPON the NATIONS that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall TREMBLE, and be in ANGUISH because of thee.”
“and what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?” Deuteronomy 4:8
“and ALL people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the Lord; and they shall be AFRAID of THEE – Deuteronomy 28:10
“for the nation and kingdom that WILL NOT SERVE THEE shall PERISH; yea, those nations shall be UTTERLY WASTED” – Isaiah 60:12
“The NATIONS shall SEE and be CONFOUNDED AT ALL THEIR MIGHT: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf.” Micah 7:16
“and it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall FEAR and TREMBLE for all the GOODNESS and for all the PROSPERITY that I PROCURE UNTO IT” – Jeremiah 33:9
POSSESS the GATES of their ENEMIES (Genesis 22:17)
… “and thy seed shall POSSESS the GATE of HIS ENEMIES”:
the Strait of GIBRALTAR, the “gate” to the Mediterranean
the Cape of GOOD HOPE – the southern tip of Africa
the Strait of MALACCA in southeast Asia
the FALKLANDS near the tip of South America
naval dominance around the SUEZ CANAL
the PANAMA Canal
the BERING Strait
They are to OWN the ‘GATES‘ of the WORLD: major choke points include the Dardanelles, Strait of Gibraltar, access to the Panama and SuezCanals; strategic straits include the Strait of Hormuz, Bering Strait, Taiwan strait, Korea strait, Dover strait, Denmark strait, straits of Florida, Davis strait, Hudson strait, Strait of Malacca, Torres strait and Bass strait
“CONTROL of the SEAS”
“They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall SUCK of the ABUNDANCE of the SEAS, and of TREASURES HID in the SAND – Deuteronomy 33:19
“he shall pour the water out of his buckets, and HIS SEED SHALL BE IN MANY WATERS, and his king shall be higher than agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted” Numbers 24:7
psalm 89:25 I will SET HIS HAND also in the SEA, and his right hand in the RIVERS
“KIND to the POOR”
“IF there be among you a POOR man of one of thy brethren within any of thy gates in thy land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt NOT HARDEN THINE HEART, nor shut thine hand from THY POOR BROTHER”:
“for the POOR SHALL NEVER CEASE out of the land: therefore I COMMAND THEE, saying, THOU SHALT OPEN THINE HAND WIDE UNTO THY BROTHER, to THY POOR, and to thy NEEDY, in THY LAND” – Deuteronomy 15:7, 11
“He shall judge the POOR of the people, he shall SAVE the CHILDREN of the NEEDY, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.” –Psalm 72:4 –
“SET SLAVES FREE”
“I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a LIGHT of the GENTILES” Isaiah 42:6
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the PRISONERS from the prison, and them that sit in DARKNESS OUT of the prison house … to LOOSE the BANDS of WICKEDNESS, to undo the HEAVY BURDENS, and to let the OPPRESSED GO FREE, and that YE BREAK EVERY YOKE?” Isaiah 58:6
Isaiah 60:12 “for the nation and kingdom that WILL NOT SERVE THEE SHALL PERISH; yea, those nations shall be UTTERLY WASTED”
A LIGHT to the GENTILES – CUSTODIANS of the ORACLES
Preach the Gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue and people
“As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the lord; my spirit that is upon thee, and MY WORDS which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the lord, from henceforth and forever. – Isaiah 50:21 “I will also give thee for a LIGHT to the GENTILES, that thou mayest be MY SALVATION unto the END of the EARTH. – Isaiah 51:6
God was sending Israel, as Isaiah says, to the “ISLES afar off” to “renew their strength” in order to take the gospel to the world; which was their job from the beginning
“and He [Jesus] saith unto them, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men” –Matthew 4:19 The name ANGELN [as in anglo] means “HOOK“, e.g. as in angling for fish psalm 147:19, 21 genesis 28:14

Isaiah 43:21 – This people have I FORMED FOR MYSELF; they shall shew forth MY PRAISE

The “POINT” of ALL THIS – AMERICAN “IMPERIALISM” IS NO “ACCIDENT”
GOD (not Israel) IS GREAT !
The LORD of HOSTS LIVES !
ULTIMATELY, WE ARE ALL “PUPPETS” of HIS (“imperial”) POWER
DISCLAIMER: “Israel” is not about human “supremacy”, pride, prejudice, envy or resentments. Anything but. God’s revelation reveals the “sinful” nature of ALL His creation. I am NOT of “ANGLO-SAXON” (sons of “Isaac”) descent. But “my peoples” did come to the United States and enjoyed the “BLESSINGS” of the “SONS of JOSEPH” – EPHRAIM and MANASSEH. Spiritual pride is the FIRST thing God warns us of. Jesus came to the “religious” people of the day, castigating their self-righteousness and hypocrisy.
DO NOT CONFUSE GOD’s “Plan” of “REDEMPTION” with “SALVATION”. YET, DO NOT DENY the “REALITY” of GOD “HAND” in history.
“DEFINING” God in earthly, flesh terms for our own corrupt use is EVIL. BUT “denial” of God’s “blessings, the role played by His chosen “oracle Peoples”, ignoring and REJECTING the “MARVELOUS WORK and WONDER” of HIS “REDEMPTIVE PLAN” is ALSO EVIL. Ephraim-England is described as a cake “half turned”, half baked because it turned it’s back in denial, “ASHAMED” of God’s promises and blessings, fearful of those who DESPISE the reality of God.
We are not the source of “exceptional-ism” – but we serve a GOD that IS!
IN the END, the WHOLE PURPOSE IS NOT the GLORY of ISRAEL, BUT the KNOWLEDGE of GOD, who will be KNOWN in the EYES of the NATIONS. “History” encapsulates HIS story”, the redemption plan of “Israel” told through His prophetic people, oracles of His Word.
“ISRAEL” is besides the point – but one day we are DESTINED to SERVE the “KING of ISRAEL” – JESUS CHRIST, the “LION of the TRIBE of JUDAH”, who bought HIS CHURCH, His “out called ones” of every “ethnon” in TIME to rule and reign with Him in ETERNITY. THAT is the “GOOD NEWS” of “ISRAEL”.
GOD (not “Israel”) is GLORIOUS – JEHOVAH, the LORD of “HOSTS”, FAITHFUL to HIS WORD of PROMISE, “FOREVER SETTLED in HEAVEN”!
The whole point is GOD’s “MARVELOUS WORK and WONDER” of “ISRAEL” will be “KNOWN” – regardless of any human “agendas”.
The story of Israel is meant to SERVE GOD’s PURPOSES, NOT OUR OWN.
Those human perspectives which claim either “supremacy” or “anger-envy-resentments” at GOD’s PROMISES are BOTH spiritually “idiot-ic”, ignorant and disrespectful.
The GOD of ISRAEL is in CONTROL and FAITHFUL to HIS WORD of PROMISE, REGARDLESS of ANY “TOOLS” HE USES ALONG the WAY. “FOREVER, HIS WORD is SETTLE in HEAVEN”!
American “Exceptionalism” has been around since the beginning of American History. Unfortunately, the concept has been USED and ABUSED.
Exceptionalism can be a two-edged sword, BOTH a “BLESSING” and a “CURSE”.
Exceptionalism does NOTmean “better” or “superior”. “Israel” is NOT about HUMAN “SUPREMACY”, PRIDE, PREJUDICE, ENVY or RESENTMENTS. Anything but.
God’s revelation reveals the “SINFUL” nature of ALL His creation.
Israel was “blessed”, but “to whom much is given, much is required'”.
The history of “Israel” was a DISASTER on many levels. Most of the original Israelites FAILED to make it to “The Promised Land”. God strewed their bones in the “wilderness” FOR THEIR FAITH-LESS-NESS. THEY PUT GOD ON TRIAL.
GOD “CHASTISED” ISRAEL FOR ITS FAITHLESSNESS and IDOLATRY – BUT WAS FAITHFUL to HIS WORD of PROMISE!
Spiritual pride is the FIRST thing God WARNS us of. Jesus came to the “religious” people of the day, castigating their self-righteousness and hypocrisy.
We “sinners” ALL fall short of God’s Glory.
That is “the LESSON” of Israel – HIS CALLING, OUR FAILURES and HIS REDEMPTION and RESTORATION – that applies to ALL of God’s Children.
DO NOT CONFUSE GOD’s “Plan” of “REDEMPTION” with “SALVATION”. YET, DO NOT DENY or DISMISS the “REALITY” of GOD “HAND” in history.
“DEFINING” God in earthly, flesh terms for our own corrupt use is evil.
BUT “DENIAL” of God’s “blessings, the role played by His chosen “oracle Peoples”, IGNORING and REJECTING His “redemption plan” is ALSO evil.
Ephraim-England is described as a cake “half turned”, half baked because it turned it’s back in DENIAL, “ASHAMED” of God’s promises and blessings, fearful of those who DESPISED and DISRESPECTED the reality of God.
Any political [human] “agendas”, one way or the other, is besides the point – GOD has HIS [divine] “AGENDA”.
WE are NOT the source of American “exceptional-ism” – BUT we SERVE a GOD that IS!
The whole point is GOD’s “MARVELOUS WORK and “WONDER” of “ISRAEL” will be “KNOWN” – regardless of any human “agendas”.
The story of Israel is meant to SERVE GOD’s PURPOSES, NOT OUR OWN
Those HUMAN PERSPECTIVES which claim either “supremacy” or “anger-envy-resentments” at GOD’s PROMISES are BOTH spiritually “idiot-ic”, ignorant and disrespectful. God’s ways are not man’s ways.
REJECT BOTH the DENIERS and [politically “correct”] DESPISERS of GOD who REJECT and DISTORT the TRUTH of GOD’s PROMISES!
Most of this world lives in “DENIAL” when it comes to “The GOD of ISRAEL” and “KING JESUS“.
It is important to recognize American “Exceptional-ism” for what it ITS and what it IS NOT.
The GOD of ISRAEL TRULY is GREAT (“exception-al”) !!!
I am NOT of “ANGLO-SAXON” (sons of “Isaac”) descent. But “my peoples” did come to the United States and enjoyed the “BLESSINGS” of the “SONS of JOSEPH” – Ephraim and Manesseh. Only a god-less dimwit cannot see how the United States became “Israel” – “Exodus” (escape) from “slavery” to a “Promised Land”, the world’s “Shining City on a Hill” uniquely “blessed” of God, founded on “divine” principles that set it apart “exceptional” from all nations in human history.
