Didn’t find out about this news until today (4/24/22) in the below article. Been busy getting spring garden going. Did not see it on the antenna TV news. The vandalism took place April 10, 2022. It just didn’t get all that much attention here in the USA due to the focus on Ukraine, inflation, covid, upcoming food shortages and other more important things.
Joseph was the firstborn of Rachel whom Joseph served two weeks of years because Jacob’s Uncle Ladan had duped him after the first week of years which seemed to go by rather fast. (Gen.29:9-30) The second set of seven years was a bit more troublesome. (Gen. 29:30-30:26) Jacob had had 11 of his 12 Children during the second set of seven years, but he let his Uncle talk him into yet another six year of service. (Gen. 30:27-3142) [See “Cosmic Clockworks I in main menu.] Benjamen wasn’t born until Jacob’s journey home between Bethel and Ephrath and Rachel had died. (Gen. 35:16-20)
From Chapter VI of Missing Links:
The Seven Times Prophecy
This prophecy is found in Leviticus 26 and the seven times are mentioned four times. (Lev. 26:18, 21, 24, 28) There are seven churches, seals, trumpets, and plagues in Revelation. [Lev. 7777 to Rev. 7777] Leviticus 26 discusses the promise of blessings for the children of Israel if they keep the commandments of God and walk in his statutes. The Lord warned them of the withholding of blessings and the terror and sorrow they would experience if they would not keep all his commandments. The seven times is a period that the promise of blessings would be withheld as well as the intensity of judgments for their disobedience. The blessings and promises given to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and then passed to his sons were also a prophecy for their future generations. The two key aspects became separate covenants: the national birthright blessing of prosperity to the two sons of Joseph, and the sceptre promise that included sovereign kingship over the Promised Land to Judah. (Genesis 48-49)
The blessings and promises began with Abraham in Genesis 12, and then passed on to Isaac, then Jacob, then Judah and the two sons of Joseph. The national prosperity birthright blessings were passed to Ephraim and Manasseh, the two sons of Joseph. Both lads were given Israel’s name. Jacob adopted them as if his own. Ephraim would become a multitude of nations and was set before his older brother, Manasseh, who would become a separate great nation. Together, they would become the stone (builder) and the glory (magnificence) of Israel. (Gen. 49:24; Duet. 33:17) The sceptre promise shall not depart from Judah. (Gen. 49:10) Genesis 49:1-28 is a prophecy for all the children of Israel as to what form of nationality their descendants would become in the latter days.
From Lev. 26, you follow the history of Israel to the time of King Solomon when he sinned and turned from the Lord. The Prophet Ahijah tells Jeroboam that God will take the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon and give him ten of the tribes. (1 Kings 11:29-32) The Kingdom of Israel became two separate nations, kingdoms, or houses. The sins of Solomon, his death, and the division of the kingdom are found in 1 Kings 11 and 12. From this point you follow the histories of the northern and southern kingdoms in the remainder of the Kings and Chronicles, as well as Ezra and the other Prophets.
The northern kingdom (House of Israel) turned away from God, and their nation was destroyed in 722 BC. The remaining people of the ten northern tribes were taken captive by the King of Assyria into the land of Assyria. (2 Kings 17) In 609 BC Assyria was defeated and divided by Nabolpolassar, King of Babylon. Many Assyrians and most if not all the remnant of the northern ten tribes fled, thus beginning their migrations northward and westward. The descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh with their national birthright were among them. They became known as The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel.
Whether deserved or not, God keeps all his promises! They were made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Israel). Ephraim did not become a company of nations and Manasseh did not become a separate great nation in the Old Testament Bible. These promises were withheld for seven times or 2520 years. [360 × 7 = 2520] and [2520 yrs − 722 BC = 1798 AD] England continued expanding its global colonization. The British Commonwealth is a company of nations. The United States had recently won its independence from its older brother and established its Constitutional Republic. Eli Whitney had just invented mass production and Robert Fulton the steam engine. The industrial revolution was well underway.
When reading the books of prophecy in the Bible, the House of Israel refers to the United States, Great Britain, and the other eight lost tribes. The House of Joseph refers to the United States and Great Britain. (Amos 5:6,15, 6:6; Obad. 18; Zech. 10:6; Ezek. 37:16,19, 47:13; Ps. 80) The other eight lost tribes of Israel are: Reuben – Netherlands, Simeon with Levi – Spain with Portugal, Gad – Finland, Zebulun – Norway, Issachar – Sweden, Asher – Belgium, Naphtali – France, and Dan – Denmark. (Gen. 49; Deut. 33) Benjamin is a part of The House of Judah. (1 Kings 12:2124) Out of the lost ten tribes, only the United States has not joined the European Union. Will the US lose its superpower status to the EU? Could the Euro replace the dollar as the global dominate currency? A numerical significance in prophecy is linking the lost ten tribes to the ten toes, horns, and ten kingdoms with the breaking of the Ten Commandments. (Dan. 2 & 7; Rev. 13 & 17) [10 + 10 + 10 + 10 = 40, which will prove to be another significant number in scripture.]
The southern kingdom (House of Judah) also turned from God and was punished for seven times. The Jews did not lose their identity but lost the sovereignty and kingship over their land when King Jehoiachin surrendered to King Nebuchadnezzar (606-562 BC) and was carried away in captivity to Babylon in 598 BC. (2 Kings 24:8-12) This ended the independent Kingdom of Judah and the sovereign control of the land by the Jews. Adding 2520 years to 598 BC we come to 1922 AD. The League of Nations (now United Nations) made Palestine a British Mandate to set up a homeland for the Jews in 1922. It followed the Balfour Declaration of 1917 by Great Britain supporting a Jewish National Homeland. The British were harsh in their implementation of the mandate. The Jews began fighting the Arabs around 1947 and in 1948 the mandate ended. The Jewish leaders proclaimed the State of Israel with David Ben Gurion as their first Prime Minister. [The movie “Cast a Giant Shadow” starring Kirk Douglas and John Wayne was based on this period in history. Douglas played the American Jewish Colonel who went to Israel to help the Israelis. It was a great movie!]
When reading the books of prophecy in the Bible, the House of Judah refers to the StateofIsrael. All Jews are Israelites, but all Israelites are not Jews. All New Yorkers are Americans, but are all Americans New Yorkers? Also, the twelve tribes intermarried among themselves and other nationalities. (Gen. 38; Num. 12; Ruth 1-4; 1Sam. 17:12; Is. 11) [Moses’ wife was Ethiopian. Read the book of Numbers chapter 12.]
The Nations that arose from the descendants of The Lost Ten Tribes of Israel, and the State of Israel did not happen overnight. (Is. 66:8) Neither did the national wealth and prosperity blessings of Ephraim and Manasseh come about in a single day. The State of Israel was in the making over the course of 31 years (1917 − 1948). [In God time that would be 31 yr ÷ 1000 yr × 24 hr/day = .744 hr] The entire House of Israel will be reunited at the return of Jesus Christ. (Ezek. 37:16-22) The flags of the United States, Great Britain, and Israel that are sewn together and burned by angry Arabs are a prelude to the fulfillment of that prophecy. (Ps. 83; Gen. 16:1-12)
The United States and Great Britain (Joseph) may succeed in their efforts to get Israel (Judah) to give up the West Bank, Gaza, divide East Jerusalem, and establish a Palestinian State. It was Judah’s idea to not kill but sell Joseph to the Ishmaelite (Arab) traders. Arabs are the descendants of Ishmael. Most Persians (Iranians) are also the descendants of Abraham Is Joseph about to sell out Judah? (Gen. 17:20, 25:1-6, 37:18-28; Is. 3:1-9; Zech. 12:1-6; Luke 21:22; Ezek. 16:53) [Originally written and POD published in 2008.]
From Missing Links, Appendix II, The Genesis Record:
[2020 Revision Addition]
Joseph was sold into Egypt at age 17. (37:2) He was given charge over all Egypt during the 7 plenty & 7 famine years when 30. (41:46) He was expert at record keeping and knew the Egyptian Hieratic script (25 letter alphabet – 3000± BC). He was married to the Priest’s daughter! (41:45) By 17, I’m sure Jacob taught him to read and write the family’s native Mesopotamian Semitic Akkadian script (59 letter alphabet – 2350± BC) before being sold. Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were wealthy and literate! Joseph merged the two into a Semitic upgrade ofHieratic script. Moses was educated while in Pharaoh’s house some 400 years later. Hebrew has 24 constants and 10 vowel points (32). Recent evidence discovered in the Sinai and the Arabian Peninsulas are proof. Egotistical blind professionals say – not so! Too damn ashamed!
Joseph brought his entire family to Egypt in the second year of the famine. (45:6) Jacob lived in Egypt for 17 years until his death in 1876 BC. (47:28) Joseph was 56 when his father died. [30 + 7 +2 + 17 = 56] Joseph was born 1932 BC. [1876 + 56 = 1932] Joseph died 1821 BC. (50:26) [1932 – 110 = 1821] The Holy Bible is the most accurate History book on the planet! The Egyptian time period that Joseph and the children of Israel prospered in Goshen was the 12th Dynasty. Goshen was called the land of Rameses, Ramesses or Ramses in Genesis, which was a Hebrew blending of Sesostris I, II, III and Amenemhat II – Risamenses, Rimesses or Rimses. Over the course of time the Israelites were probably taxed by successive administrations into slavery. Sound like 1776 to 2020? Since 1913, 17 Administrations in 107 years have done the same!
Joseph was given a royal burial. (41:39-44) He acquired all the wealth of the Egyptian and surrounding people, both money and land, but only retained one fifth for the Priests, his family, then himself. The other 4/5ths was Pharaoh’s for famine recovery and building the 12th Dynasty! (47:1-27) When main street bailed out WALL STREET in 2008, main street suffered its 4/5ths. Now that main street is suffering and WALL STREET is booming (Aug. 18th) where the hell is main street’s 4/5ths?
Sorry I missed that news two weeks ago.
