And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath, the daughter of Potipherah, priest of On, bare unto him. [Genesis 46:20].



927 CE – 1707 CE

Kingdom of England

And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God has caused me to forget all my troubles and my father's family [Genesis 41:50-51] And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: For God, said he hath made me forget all my toil, and all my father's house.” [Genesis 41:51].

Manasseh was the eldest son of Joseph, grandson of Jacob, and progenitor of the tribal Pattern of forgetting. During the scattering years, Joseph, through his son, Manasseh, went through the forgetting process, which resulted in the 'lost tribes of Israel.' However, Manasseh would see the era when his people would become a great nation in the European world. For 780 years the great Pattern of Manasseh was in effect, which I will now explain. The Kingdom of Manasseh, that is to say, The Kingdom of England was a state from 927 CE to 1707 CE. The Acts of Union was developed in 1707 CE, which joined the Kingdom of England [Joseph] and the Kingdom of Scotland [Judah]. The two states were previously separate states with separate legislatures, but with the same monarch since 1603 CE, when the two countries formed the single Kingdom of Great Britain. The two countries shared a monarch for about 100 years when the Union of the Crowns took place in 1603, when King James VI of Scotland inherited the English throne from his cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. James VI became King James I over the United Kingdom of Great Britain.

Strong's #4519 Manasseh: Menashsheh [pronounced men-ash-sheh] also Menashe, Menatch, Manasseh, Menasseh, Manasse, Menasseh - which means causing to forget, to forget, deprive, to be forgotten, allow to be forgotten, and also exacteth. [exacteth here means precise, not allowing for any variation, rigorous and thorough].

Strong's #5382 Forget: nashah {naw-shaw'} meaning: forget, deprive, exacteth, deprive, to forget, to be forgotten, to cause to forget from displacement [diaspora], and/or allowed to be forgotten - self inflicted or forced dispersement. The term diaspora (Ancient Greek, "a scattering or sowing of seeds") is used to refer to any people or ethnic population forced or induced to leave their traditional ethnic homelands; being dispersed throughout other parts of the world, and the ensuing developments in their dispersal and culture.

As Manasseh was born first, so does the Pattern for Manasseh come into play first. The pattern for Manasseh, the elder brother, waxed and waned before the Pattern of Ephraim began to be great, however, there was an overlapping effect with the two Patterns. The Northern Israelites fulfilled the Manasseh Pattern first, then the same people experienced the greater Pattern of Ephraim. Manasseh couldn't become a 'multitude of nations' because the time wasn't right yet when this Pattern was in force. The tribes hadn't settled in to their new homelands, nations had to be built, governments set up, boundaries established, kings and queens to coronate, there were many lands and nations to take ownership of, before the Pattern of Ephraim could take effect.

The Manasseh pattern played out its role quite effectively in the past, beginning in 927 CE and lasting until 1707 CE. This is the period of time that the Kingdom of England was a state (927-1707) in its own right, before the uniting of the Kingdom of Great Britain.


1603 – End of Time

United Kingdom of Great Britain & Colonies

United States of America

Genesis 41:52 “And the name of the second called he Ephraim: For God hath caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.” Ephraim was the second son of Joseph, blessed by Jacob and given the bigger blessing of the two brothers.

Strong's #669 'Ephrayim {ef-rah'-yim} Ephraim shall be doubly fruitful, double the bountifulness, double ash-heap. Fruitful = #6509 {parah}, meaning fruitful, increased growth, bearing a bountifulness, brings forth, bear fruit, branches off.

The pattern for Ephraim meant that Joseph would see greater blessings and bountifulness than ever before. Ephraim would become a multitude of nations, but there was a down side too. Ephraim would become foolish and not experience his full potential – he becomes as a [pan]cake not turned.

'Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people, Ephraim is a cake not turned' [or a cake undercooked]. This does not mean 'burned' on one side, but rather, what this verse says is that Ephraim will only reach half his potential. Ephraim reaches only a half-done state because the descendants of Ephraim have allowed for strangers to enter his borders, thus zapping his strength. A mix of cultures, races, and derelicts would easily enter Ephraim's borders, causing an overall harmful situation for Ephraim. These strangers prevent Ephraim's full potential to develop and bloom past their golden harvest. Consequently, instead of reaching the desired state of land mass potential, world power, richness, blessings, success, peace, harmony, and God-given authority, Ephraim has sold out much of his assets to a guilty conscience because he could not readily accept blessings from the Lord without feeling guilty in possessing these rich gifts.

The pattern for Ephraim is 'undercooked' because the descendants lack strength of discipline. 'Undone' because they give in to political correctness, which zaps Joseph's strength. Undercooked because they think to bring the rest of the world up to their blessing level, and in the process of their altruism attempt, they begin to lose the very blessings given to them starting in 1603. These blessings made them a great people possessing great nations, and now, because of their own weaknesses, they are beginning to lose these blessings one by one.

After half the years of Manasseh's Pattern was reached, 390 years is half of 780, vandals began destroying what is considered to be the tomb of Joseph. Non-Israelites by the boat loads began pouring into the countries of Israelite nations. Ephraim was beginning to see his 'cake' being taken off the griddle only half done – in half of Manasseh's time. Ephraim did reach the 'multitude of nations' status, and could have doubled that again, if they would have been a little wiser.

Ephraim will always maintain an official bloodline to Isaac and Jacob, it is the additional blessings, which he could have obtained, that he loses and continues to lose, through his own doing. Today, we can see how England, as well as America, Canada, and other 'Joseph' countries, are losing their God-given blessings in gates/ports of entry, land mass, power, authority, freedom, and other bountifulness [called herein the Ephraim Pattern]. They have allowed 'strangers' to walk in through the front door and usurp these things. Do you think this sounds arrogant of me to write this? - Tell your side of the story to God, for He has spoken... it as prophecy - lest we again FORGET.


Israelites should take care of their own people first, but Israelite governments worry only about elections, greediness, world fame, status, and political correctness. By neglecting our own people, we will become a minority in the world. We must reverse this action to save Jacob's bloodline. In so doing, the entire world will benefit, as there is no other people that have the instinct to be as kind, as nurturing, offering humanitarianism to all, as do the Israelite people. If the Hebrew people become extinct, the populations of the world will revert backwards in time. This has always been the cycle of things. Not my idea – study the cycles of nations and see for yourself.

Deuteronomy 7:6 "For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the Earth." and Deuteronomy 14:2 "thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God, and the Lord hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the Earth."

America, Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and others, all combined represent the Biblical 'Ephraim' Pattern today. The people themselves constitute the identity, and as a democracy, the governments are their speaking and acting voice.

As we look back in history, we see how the Israelites came into possession of the Northern Isles first, but when the pattern for Ephraim reached its fullest peak was between the years of 1603 - 1950. England was not the only nation to gain land - America won her freedom with massive land ownership during this period of time as well. The land of Australia became the homeland for many of these same descendants, as well as South Africa and New Zealand. During the time that the sun never set on Great Britain, we were representing the pattern for Ephraim. During the time of colonization of America, we were playing out the Ephraim card. The 'roots' [ancestry] of Joseph shall always be planted in the British Isles; HOWEVER, the vines of Joseph grew over the walls, i.e. wandering across the oceans, out-growing the limited borders of the tiny Isles. No matter where the 'vines' meandered, they were still the same people who make up the multitudes of Joseph's descendants, for it is the people with the role to play, and it is the people themselves who received the blessings of great bountifulness. Why would they be so careless as to forfeit all these blessings?

Today, as Joseph's descendants experience the beginning of a new Age, they still exhibit and exercise the role of Ephraim, but we can see it waning. To say that the United Kingdom is Ephraim IS correct, and to say that America IS Ephraim is also correct - to say that Canada is Ephraim is also correct. For together we are the horns of 'unicorns' that push the nations together at the end of times. All the same people who share the same roots of the same tree/vine. And there is plenty of 'Bull' to go around. England may have had John Bull, but America has Bull Durham, and Western Rodeos with hundreds of bulls; consider 'Bull' in the United States Navy and NOAA Corps, and the name given to the senior-most Ensign (rank) on a ship or flight unit. Not forgetting there is plenty of bull in America's beef industry. Recently, England was forced to destroy thousands of bulls because of 'mad cow disease'. England may have had their seal of ownership on many foreign lands, but today Joseph's descendants actually inhabit all the vast reaches of land that America owns. England may have the Queen and the inherited throne of David, but America's presidents have all had the same connections to David's royal bloodline, as do the royal families of Great Britain. It really doesn't matter who has the most Bull because all Joseph's descendants once portrayed the pattern for Manasseh, and these very same peoples, in later generations, reflect the pattern for Ephraim.



     The Hebrew word 'Amiyr' [Strong's #5995], which the name 'America' represents, refers to a 'sheaf of wheat'. In America's heartland are grown wheat fields as far as you can see - this land is called the bread basket of the world.  'Amar' [Strong's #6014], means to gather grain [wheat], and implies reaping the ripened golden harvest. U.S. coins depicted bundles of wheat, while her paper money depicted grains of 'Amiyr' [wheat], in a cornucopia of abundance. Ephraim means 'double' fruitfulness - double the harvest from the 'bread-basket of the world - this is Amiyr-America as she plays her role as Ephraim. Once again, Joseph's descendants feed the world from the land of America [Amiyr] - with her cornucopia of harvest. Remember ALL Joseph's descendants represent - the pattern for Ephraim today.

SHEAF: May refer to a sheaf of arrows called a quiver or a sheaf of wheat or corn also called a garb.

ASENATH, Mother of Ephraim & Manasseh

       Except it or not, all Ephraim and Manasseh descendants have equal blood kinship to Asenath as well as to Joseph.  Asenath was the wife of Joseph and the mother of Ephraim and Manasseh.  The name, Asenath, [Strong's #621] means "Gift of the sun-god, Ra") and belonging to the goddess Neith of Egypt.  The daughter of Poti-pherah the priest of On. The Egyptian Pharaoh gave to Joseph, son of Jacob, Asenath, to be his wife. She bore Joseph two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, who each became patriarchs of their own tribes of Israel. [Potiphar (or Potifar) means, "The one whom Ra gave" as in IS RA EL].  Jacob, the Patriarch, once said of Ephraim, that Ephraim would become my 'firstborn', and Ephraim shall have the name ISRAEL.

Of the goddess Neith it is written, "I am All That Has Been, That Is, and That Will Be. No mortal has yet been able to lift the veil that covers Me." Neith was the patron deity of Sais, in the Western Nile Delta. Originally, Neith was a goddess of the hunt and of war, and had as her symbol, like the town of Sais itself, two crossed Arrows over a shield.  In her early form, as a goddess of war, she was said to make warriors' weapons, and guard their bodies when they died. However, her symbol also bore resemblance to a loom, and so it was that Neith additionally became goddess of weaving, and gained her name, which means weaver. As a goddess of weaving and the domestic arts she was a protectress of women and a guardian of marriage, and so Royal woman often named themselves after Neith in her honor. [Sais was the chief city of the fifth nome in Lower Egypt, located in the western edge of the Nile Delta. Its Ancient Egyptian name was Zau. It was of greatest importance in the Late Period, when it was the capital of the 26th dynasty of Egypt].  [Source:]

Sais was also the Welsh term for an English person, thought possibly to derive from the name 'Saxon' - or perhaps Saxon originated from the Sais area of Egypt.

BULL: The ancient symbol of a bull symbolizes valor and magnanimity, representing male fertility, with fiery temperament; also the role model of a dedicated father.  The Bull was a sun-god in many cultures and was often used in Heraldry to denote kingly power. To the Celts, the Bull represented divine power and strength; to the Druids it was a symbol for the sun and the pro-creativity associated with its forces.

BULL'S HORNS: Denotes strength, power and fortitude; horns were used also as divine power.  The bull's horns represented fertility of the earth, growth, and generation, analogous to spring, when the earth is fertile and everything is growing abundantly.  Bulls were revered as the masculine counterpart to goddesses in the ancient Mediterranean.

EAGLE IN HERALDRY: A noble device signifying a person of action, ever more occupied in high and weighty affairs, and one of lofty spirit, ingenious, speedy in apprehension, and judicious in matters of ambiguity; true magnanimity and fortitude of mind; a symbol of power and sovereignty.  The Eagle also symbolizes courage, freedom, and immortality.  It proudly served as an emblem of the might and unity of empire for Babylon, the Caesars, Charlemagne and many Holy Roman and Byzantine emperors as well as for Russian czars, Aztecs and Napoleon.  The heraldic Eagle appeared in Persian and Egyptian battle ensigns and on the flags of the Roman legions.  The Romans called the Eagle the "bird of Jove", and carried it on their standards, into battle.  If a legion lost its Eagle, it was in disgrace until the Eagle could be recovered.  It was Roman custom to let an Eagle fly from the funeral pyre of a deceased emperor, bearing the god's soul to heaven after a period of earthly incarnation as the emperor.  Early Christians honored the Eagle as a symbol of hope, of strength and of Resurrection.  The latter is based on the early belief that the Eagle, unlike other birds, periodically renewed its plumage and its youth by flying near the sun then plunging into the water.  The majestic Eagle was central to many mythologies and sacred writings of humanity.  The ancient Greeks revered the eagle as a symbol of the god of lightning, and it is said they nailed Eagles to the peaks of temples to serve as magic lightning rods; Scandinavian myths also associate the Eagle with lightning and storms.  The Hittites (an ancient people living in Anatolia and northern Syria about 2000-1200 B.C) used the double Eagle as an emblem of sovereignty. Last but not least, the Eagle adorns the Great Seal of the United States of America.

An Aiglon or Aiglette is an eaglet - a young eagle.


"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. Could it be that the fishers of men were the Germanic tribes who sacked Rome, who instituted the religion from the Holy Roman Empire, and who made Catholicism mandatory during the Dark Ages, i.e. they are those who became the 'fishers of men's souls'.

The words 'England' and 'English' are derived from the tribe of the Angles, and thus ultimately from the Angeln peninsula - where the fishers of men were once found. The terms 'Anglo' and 'Anglo-Saxon' also go back to this origin. The English language is ultimately derived from the West Germanic language spoken by the Angles.

Angeln (Danish: Angel) is a peninsula in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, protruding into the Baltic Sea. The region is believed by many to be the area the Angles left when migrating to Britain in the 5th-6th centuries. The word in itself means "hook", e.g. as in angling for fish. England, and the English language, takes its name from the Angles and thus ultimately from the Angeln peninsula. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle states: (after the Angles' migration to Britain) "Of the Angles - the country they left has since stood empty between the Jutes and the Saxons."

There is also a theory that the name of the Angles came from Germanic words for "narrow" (compare German enge = "narrow"), and meant "the people who live beside the Narrow [Water]", i.e. beside the Schlei estuary. Bede states that the Angli before they came to Britain dwelt in a land called Angulus, and similar evidence is given by the Historia Brittonum.

Saxon, [from Strong's 7915], sakkiyn [sak-keen], meaning a sword, knife, dagger, or lancet. Daniel 11:33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword [sakkiyn], and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

province of Schleswig has proved exceptionally rich in prehistoric antiquities which date apparently from the 4th and 5th centuries. Among the places where these have been found, special mention should be made of the large cremation cemetery at Borgstedterfeld, between Rendsburg and Eckernförde, which has yielded many urns and brooches closely resembling those found in heathen graves in England. Of still greater importance are the great deposits at Thorsbjaerg (in Angel) and Nydam, which contained large quantities of arms, ornaments, articles of clothing, agricultural implements, and in the latter case even ships. By the help of these discoveries we are able to reconstruct a fairly detailed picture of Angle civilization in the age preceding the invasion of Britain.
