Now
is the "END TIME" [Time of The End], and now is the "Time of Revelation", when "The Secret Words" will be "Unsealed"!


Daniel 12:8-10

And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my EL, what shall be the end of these things? And He said [to my heart], Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and SEALED UNTIL THE TIME OF THE END
(Right Now!). Many shall be purified [become Righteous], and made white [perfected], and tried (by personal tribulation); but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND.


The Covenants, The Birthright, The Scepter,
and
Blessings.



Genesis 17:1-6

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the Eternal Father [YHVH] appeared to Abram [in a dream or vision, as in Genesis 15:1], and said unto him, I am the Almighty EL; walk [Righteously] before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make MY COVENANT 
(My vow of Marriage) between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly (cause you to be fruitful). And Abram fell on his face: and YHVH talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant (My vow of Marriage) is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful (both physically and Spiritually), and I will make nations [not just One] of thee, and KINGS shall come out of thee.


JUDAH
or modern day Israel is only ONE Nation. Thus the lost Tribes of Ancient Israel MUST now be other Nations and/or parts of other Nations. And, also, the physical seed of Abraham. A great number of them must now be "Americans" simply because "The USA" has been and is the greatest "Melting Pot" in the world for mixing nations, races, religions, etc. . Sounds just like ancient Rome to me with the blending of conquered nations.


The Birthright, Covenant and Scepter, both physical and Spiritual Blessings, were passed on to Isaac (Abraham's only legitimate son by Sarah)  when Abraham died.

  Isaac had twin sons; Esau, and Jacob. Esau sold his BIRTHRIGHT
(including the Scepter or Kingship) to Jacob for a bowl of red pottage (Genesis 25:30-31). Therefore the BIRTHRIGHT and SCEPTRE went to the seed of JACOB; who later became Israel, and his children became the TWELVE TRIBES of ISRAEL.


Since
Abram had two sons [Isaac and Ishmael], how do "We" know that Isaac was the legitimate heir? Islam still contests that legitimacy to this very day. Apparently the answer is because the promise was not only to Abram (Abraham), but to both Abram and Sarai (Sarah), thus, the need for a different covenant with Ishmael; even though Ishmael was Abram's first born, Ishmael was not Sarai's firstborn nor was the promise technically made to Abraham, as Abram did not become Abraham, and Sarai did not become Sarah until the moment Isaac was conceived nearly fourteen years later.


Genesis 16:15-16

15 ¶ And Hagar bare Abram
(not yet Abraham) a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.
16 And Abram [was] fourscore and six years old, when Hagar bare Ishmael to Abram
(not yet Abraham).


Genesis 17:5, 15-16, 21

5 Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee.

15 ¶ And GOD said unto Abram, As for Sarai thy wife, thou shalt not call her name Sarai, but Sarah [shall] her name [become].
16 And I will bless her, and give thee a son, also, of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be [a mother] of nations; kings of people shall be of her.

21 But my covenant
(Genesis 17:7-14) will I establish with Isaac, which Sarah shall bear unto thee at this set time in the next year.


Isaac's Covenant had/has both physical and Spiritual implications in as much as physical circumcision was/is a parallel of the circumcision of "The Heart". Even so, it was not physical circumcision that preceded circumcision of "The Heart", but the "Circumcised Heart of Abram" [Righteousness] that was paralleled by "Physical Circumcision". Thus "Physical Circumcision" was the token outward appearance of "The True Seed [Isaac] of [Righteousness Seeking] Abram" !
Therefore,
Isaac was/is the first "True Spiritual Seed" of "Heart Circumcised" Abraham; and Ishmael was the firstborn of Abram [not Abraham].


Romans 2:29

29 But he [is] a [Spiritual] Jew [True Seed of Abram/Abraham], which is one inwardly [Spiritually]; and circumcision [is that] of the heart, in the spirit, [and] not in the letter [of The Law]; whose praise [is] not of men, but of GOD.



Ishmael's Blessing contained no such "Spiritual Circumcision of The Heart" covenant, except as provided in Romans 2:29 above, which Islam currently rejects.


Genesis 17:18-20

18 And Abraham said unto GOD, O that Ishmael might live before thee!
19 And GOD said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him [Isaac] for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his [Righteousness Seeking] seed after him.
20 And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold, I have [physically] blessed him, and will make him [physically] fruitful, and will [physically] multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he [physically] beget, and I will make him a great [physical] nation.


Therefore
, "The Covenant", "The Birthright" and "The Scepter" were never "Physical in Nature", but strictly "Spiritual in Nature"; right from the very Righteous beginning with Righteous Abram! There is no "Physical Abrahamic Covenant" with any currently existing nation or nations, except Islam, but there is no "Righteous" or "Spiritual Abrahamic Covenant" with Islam. Abraham's Spiritual Covenant with YHVH was only to Abraham's "Righteousness Seeking Seed", which are currently without a "Kingdom [on Earth]" of their own.


Romans 4:3

3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed GOD, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.


Galatians 3:6

6 Even as Abraham believed GOD, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.


James 2:23

23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed GOD, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of GOD.


However
, this does not mean that YHVH didn't establish a "Physical Parallel" to His "Spiritual Covenant" with Righteous Abram, and this "Spiritual to Physical" parallel itself is embodied by the symbolism that was established by YHVH's command to circumcise "YHVH's Righteous Seed" [from the Heart], but that that symbolism be demonstrated by physical circumcision of the foreskin of the source of "The Physical Seed".  In other words "Physical Circumcision" as the source of the physical seed is merely a "Physical to Spiritual Parallel" of the human "MIND" [Heart or Inner Man], which is the source of "The Spiritual Seed".


Romans 2:29
(YHVH seeks Spiritual seed !)
29 But he [is] a Jew [Seed of Abram/Abraham], which is one inwardly [Spiritually]; and circumcision [is that] of the Heart, in the Spirit, [and] not in the letter [, but "The Intent of The Law"]; whose praise [is] not of men, but of GOD.



Matthew 3:9 (YHVH seeks not physical seed !)
9 And think not to say within yourselves, We [physical Israel or Islam] have Abraham as [our] father: for I say unto you, that GOD is able of these stones to raise up [physical] children unto Abraham.


John 8:39
39 They [Jews] answered and said unto him, "Abraham is our [Earth] father."  Yahshua saith unto them, "If ye were [Righteous] Abraham's [Righteous] children, ye would do the [Righteous] works of Abraham."


So, was physical Israel without a covenant of their own?

Absolutely Not !



Exodus 19:5  (Israel's Sinai Covenant)
5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my [YHVH's] voice indeed, and Keep My [Marriage] Covenant  [The Ten Commandments or Torah], then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the Earth [is] mine:
6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an Holy  [Righteousness Seeking] Nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
7 ¶ And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which the LORD commanded him.
8 And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD.


Exodus 24:3  (Israel's Sinai Covenant)
3 ¶ And Moses came and told the people all the words of the LORD, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which the LORD hath said will we do.


Exodus 24:7  (Israel's Sinai Covenant)
7 And he took the book of the covenant, and read it to the audience of the people: and they said, All that the LORD hath said will we do, and be obedient.


Genesis 27:28-29
(Jacob's or Israel's blessing)
28 Therefore YHVH give thee of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the Earth, and plenty of corn and wine:
29 Let people SERVE THEE, and nations BOW DOWN TO THEE: be a master 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.


Genesis 28:13
(YHVH upholds Israel's blessing)
13 And, behold, The Creator stood above it, and said, I am the EL of Abraham thy father, and the EL of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; 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 [Spiritual] SEED SHALL 'ALL' the FAMILIES of the Earth be BLESSED (Dual Prophesy of YahShua and His "Coming Kingdom on Earth").


Of course, this blessings is only in effect as long as Israel maintains their "Marriage Covenant" with The Eternal Father. And so Israel's "Marriage Covenant" was built around "Love", "Honor", and "Obedience" [to YHVH's Righteousness or Torah].


Jeremiah 3:6, 14-15, 20
(Israel plays the Spiritual Harlot)
6 ¶ The LORD said also unto me in the days of Josiah the king, Hast thou seen [that] which backsliding Israel hath done? she is gone up upon every high mountain and under every green tree, and there hath played the harlot.

8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

10 And yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah hath not turned unto me with her whole heart, but feignedly, saith the LORD.
11 ¶ And the LORD said unto me, The backsliding Israel hath justified herself more than treacherous Judah.

14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you [Sinai Covenant]: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:
15 And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.

20 Surely [as] a wife treacherously departeth from her husband, so have ye dealt treacherously with [DIVORCED] me, O house of Israel, saith the LORD.


Jeremiah 11:12-14
(Judah Divorces YHVH and His protection.)
12 Then shall the cities of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem go, and cry unto the idols unto whom they offer incense: but they shall not save them at all in the time of their trouble.
13 For [according to] the number of thy cities were thy idols, O Judah; and [according to] the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to [that] shameful thing, [even] altars to burn incense unto Baal.
14 ¶ Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear [them] in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble.


Malachi 2:11
(Judah marries the daughter of a strange idol)
11 Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange idol.

Yes, beloveds, Judah brought "The Holocaust" upon her descendents by her Spiritual whoredoms and lack of devotion to YHVH [and His Righteousness].


Ezekiel 5:8-13
(The results of Leaving YHVH)
8 Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD; Behold, I, even I, [am] against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations [World].
9 And I will do in thee that which I have not done [before], and whereunto I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations.
10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds.
11 Wherefore, [as] I live, saith the LORD GOD; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish [thee]; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.
12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.
13 Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the LORD have spoken [it] in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.


Birthright and Scepter Separated ?


Genesis 49:10
(The Scepter or Royal Line)
The SCEPTRE [Royal Line] shall NOT DEPART from JUDAH, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until SHILOH (Messiah YahShua) come; and unto him (YahShua) shall the gathering of the people be
(Abraham's Spiritual Seed).


When
the twelve tribes of Israel were divided up into Israel (9 1/2 tribes), and JUDAH (2 1/2 tribes) the SCEPTRE [Royal Line] went with the "HOUSE of DAVID" (JUDAH), and ultimately Messiah YahShua, The KING of KINGS [Twenty-four prior Kings].

The Scepter
  is still with Judah, awaiting the Second Coming of Messiah YahShua [King of Kings].  Only the ROYAL SCEPTRE is synonymous with the "Spiritual Blessings" placed upon "True Believers"; who are "Spiritual Jews" of "The Spiritual House of David". Additionally, Spiritual Jews are either "Natural" (physical Jews by birth) or "Grafted In" (non-Jews). See Romans chapter eleven.


Galatians 3:7-9, 29
(The Righteous Seed)
7 Know ye therefore that they which are of [Righteous] faith, the same are the children of Abraham.
8 And the scripture, foreseeing that GOD would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, [saying], In thee shall all nations be blessed.
9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

29 And if ye [be] Messiah's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.


However, The Birthright, which bestows "Physical Blessings" [National wealth and National Power] was originally bestowed on the firstborn Son of Jacob (first tribe of Israel), Reuben. However, REUBEN LOST HIS BIRTHRIGHT TO JOSEPH. And so the physical birthright was passed from Jacob [Israel] to Joseph, and later from Joseph through the blessings of Jacob to Ephraim and Manasseh (Joseph's twins).


1 Chronicles 5:1-2
(The Righteous Seed)
Now the sons of Reuben, the firstborn of Israel, (for he was the firstborn; but forasmuch as he defiled his father's bed, his birthright was given unto the sons of Joseph the son of Israel [Jacob]: and the genealogy is not to be reckoned after the birthright. For Judah prevailed above his brethren, and of him came the chief ruler; but the birthright was Joseph's.


The Spiritual [and Royal] genealogy beyond this point is that of "The Righteous Seed" or "Spiritual Genealogy", which remained with "The House of David" or  JUDAH.
But the physical seed of Joseph
(Ephraim and Manasseh) received the physical blessings [Physical Birthright] of Jacob [Israel].

Ephraim and Manasseh now became the physical inheritance line of Abraham's physical seed wherein the Physical Birthright
(The Blessings of Jacob/Israel) would be inherited. Customarily Birthrights are only passed down through firstborn sons, even in the case of twins, but YHVH worked out "HIS WILL" with the twins Esau and Jacob, then with Simeon (the firstborn of Jacob), and now with, Ephraim (youngest) and Manasseh (eldest), the twin sons of Joseph; even so, Ephraim (youngest) received the greater blessing.


Genesis 48:10-21
(The Blessings of Jacob/Israel)
Now the eyes of Israel
(Jacob) were dim from age, so that he could not see. And he had them [ Manasseh and Ephraim] brought near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them. And Israel (Jacob) said unto Joseph [his son], I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, The Eternal hath shewed me also thy seed (twins). And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the Earth. And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's (Jacob's) left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's (Jacob's) right hand, and brought them near unto him. And Israel (Jacob) stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn. And he (Jacob) blessed Joseph, and said, YHVH, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk [in Righteousness], the GOD which fed me all my life long unto this day, The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my [Good] name be named on them, and the [Good] name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the Earth. And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim (youngest) , it displeased him: and he held up his father's hand, to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head. And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his [Manasseh's] head. And his father (Jacob) refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he, also, shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his (physical) seed shall become a multitude of nations. And he blessed them that day, saying, In thee shall Israel bless, saying, YHVH make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh: and he (Jacob) set Ephraim before Manasseh. And Israel (Jacob)  said unto Joseph, Behold, I die: but YHVH shall be with you, and bring you again unto the land of your fathers.


And so Manasseh is/was to become a great nation, BUT Ephraim is to become a Greater Multitude of Nations (a melting pot), and I suspect, "The United States of America".


THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA


Is a NATION made up of MANY NATIONS. The USA is the greatest "Melting Pot" Nation in the world, and is most probably the one Nation wherein the greatest remnant of the missing tribes (All of Them) exist today! Therefore, the United States of America is most probably the Physical Heir to the physical promises given to Ephraim. As for the seed of Manasseh, it is most likely Great Britain, the elder brother (Elder Nation) of Ephraim (Younger Nation). However, it should be known that of the 15 million Jews in the world today (2002 AD), that the Nation of Israel has only 5 million Jews and the USA has 6 million Jews; 4 million more are still scattered throughout the world.
