There has been a “special relationship” between these two countries since their birth. They represent the two sons of Joseph, son of Israel, Ephraim and Manasseh. Family ties are hard to be broken. These two were born into Egypt in the years of plenty. Their father provided food for everyone in the time of the famine and was greatly admired. Although they’ve had their differences, like brothers, they always settle them and get along with each other in peace. This relationship is now being threatened to come to an end in hostility. It will be a time of Great Tribulation.
Manasseh and Ephraim
“Joseph’s wife Aseneth bare him two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. Joseph was thirty four years old when he begat them. And the lads grew up and they went in his ways and in his instructions, they did not deviate from the way which their father taught them, either to the right or left. And the Lord was with the lads; they grew up and had understanding and skill in all wisdom and in all the affairs of government, and all the king’s officers and his great men of the inhabitants of Egypt exalted the lads and they were brought up among the king’s children.”The Book of Jasher 50:15-17
The Birthright and Blessing of Jacob
“Israel beheld Joseph’s sons and said, ‘Who are these?’ Joseph said to his father, ‘They are my sons, whom God has given me in this place’…
And Israel 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. He blessed Joseph and said, ‘God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day; The Angel which redeemed/delivered me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth…’
So he blessed them that day, saying, ‘In you shall Israel bless, saying, God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh’: and he set Ephraim before Manasseh…”Genesis 48:8-21
“His glory is like the firstling of his bullock and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.”Deuteronomy 33:17
The Special Relationship of Brothers
The “Special Relationship” is an unofficial term often used to describe the political, diplomatic, cultural, economic, military, and historical relations between the United Kingdom and the United States, or its political leaders. The term first came into popular usage after it was used in a 1946 speech by former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill. The two nations have been close allies during many conflicts in the 20th and 21st centuries, including World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and the War on Terror.
Although both governments also have close relationships with many other nations, the level of cooperation between the U.K. and the U.S. in trade and commerce, military planning, execution of military operations, nuclear weapons technology, and intelligence sharing has been described as “unparalleled” among major world powers…
Not Special to Strangers
Some critics deny the existence of a “special relationship”, calling it a myth. Former U.S. President Barack Obama considered Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel to be his “closest international partner” and said the U.K. would be at the “back of the queue” in any trade deal with the U.S. if it left the European Union…
The Times reported that Johnson is viewed negatively and seen as a British Trump by president-elect Joe Biden and vice president-elect Kamala Harris. Members of the Biden team rule out the possibility of a special relationship with him.
Following the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, the British government under Prime Ministers Theresa May and Boris Johnson sought to establish “a new special relationship” with the Trump administration. Trump claimed his relationship with Theresa May was “the highest level of special;” Trump praised Johnson as Prime Minister and celebrated comparisons that had been made between Johnson and himself.
According to the Law
This is according to the Law given to Jacob/Israel as an inheritance regarding their ruler:
“When you are come unto the land which the LORD your God gives you and shall possess it, and shall dwell therein, and shall say, I will set a king (to reign) over me, like as all the nations that are about me;
You shall in any way set him king over you, whom the LORD your God shall choose: one from among your brethren shall you set king over you: you may not set a stranger over you, which is not your brother… And it shall be, when he sits upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book … And it shall be with him and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to reverence the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this Law and these statutes, to do them:”Deuteronomy 17:14-19
Four hundred years ago in November, 1620, a group of Pilgrims came from Britain to a land far away. They and subsequent pilgrims founded colonies in America. Originally there were 13 colonies, according to the number of the tribes of Israel. After some time passed they wanted to be independent from the king of England, considered to be a tyrant, so they fashioned a Declaration stating so in 1776. They wrote a Constitution spelling out the rights of the citizens of their new republic. These freedoms have been condemned by the Roman pontiff and the Jesuit Order.
Independence Declared In Congress, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred (family, tribe, people) to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity (having the same ancestry or descent; related by blood). We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.Excerpts from The Declaration of Independence
The Oath of the Assassins:
“You have been taught to insidiously plant the seeds of jealousy and hatred between communities, provinces, states that were at peace, and incite them to deeds of blood, involving them in war with each other, and to create revolutions and civil wars in countries that were independent and prosperous, cultivating the arts and the sciences and enjoying the blessings of peace. …and that the end justifies the means.”Excerpt from the Roman Catholic Jesuit Extreme Oath of Induction
Roman Catholics have persecuted Jews, Christians, women and Protestants for millennia. Examples include the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre in France and the Burning of the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas.
Animosity reported in the News
On November 10, Johnson exchanged a congratulatory phone call with Biden.
There is some speculation that Biden will have a less friendly personal relationship with Johnson than Trump did. Analysts believed that Trump had more similarities to Johnson than Biden does. After Biden won, Business Insider reported that sources from Biden’s campaign had told the outlet that Biden held hostility towards Johnson, believing him to be a right-wing populist who is similar to Trump. In December 2019, Biden had derided Johnson as a, “kind of physical and emotional clone” of Donald Trump. History between the two leaders is cited in reports of their likely hostility.
During his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, Biden had concurred with Obama in standing in opposition to a Brexit, while Johnson was a key advocate for it. Johnson’s derisive past comments about Biden’s friend, political ally, and former boss Barack Obama are regarded as a source of potential animosity for Biden. Johnson’s derisive comments on Biden’s former colleague and fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton are also regarded as a potential source of animosity for Biden. The degree to which Johnson embraced Trump is also speculated to be a point of bother that Biden may hold. Wikipedia
The End of a Special Relationship
There are reports that Johnson is viewed even more negatively by vice president-elect Kamala Harris, and that members of the Biden–Harris team do not consider Johnson to be an ally and rule out the possibility of a special relationship with him. Wikipedia
Roman Hostility and Persecution
The Romans have held hostile and antisemitic feelings toward Israel from their beginning. Everyone should remember they militarily occupied Judea in the time of Christ and crucified thousands at that time. Prior to the Roman Empire it was the Grecian, Medo-Persian and the Babylonian Empires that have afflicted them through time. They all wanted to dominate Israel and force them to worship their pagan gods. They have subtly infiltrated Israel to this day with their doctrines of men, idolatrous worship practices and pagan celebrations, i.e. Christmas and Easter. Jacob’s brother Esau also felt animosity and hostility against him. Esau wanted to be like Nimrod, the king of Babylon, the “Image of the Beast”.
Brother against Brother
“Esau hated Jacob because of the blessing wherewith his father blessed him. And Esau said in his heart, ‘The days of mourning for my father are at hand; then I will slay my brother Jacob.’”Genesis 27:41
When Babylon invaded Jerusalem they razed and burned down the Temple that King Solomon had built. They took all the treasures and the people of Judah captive. The children of Esau cheered at the demise of Israel that day. It has been recorded in the Psalms and the prophets:
“Remember, O LORD, the children of Edom/Esau in the day of Jerusalem; who said, ‘Raze it, raze it, even to the foundation thereof’. O daughter of Babylon, who are to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewards you as you have served us.”Psalm 137:7-8
For Violence against your Brother
“Shall I not in that day, saith the LORD, even destroy the wise men out of Edom, and understanding out of the mount of Esau? And your mighty men shall be dismayed, to the end that every one of the mount of Esau may be cut off… For your violence against your brother Jacob shame shall cover you, and you shall be cut off for ever.
In the day that you stood on the other side, in the day that the strangers carried away captive his forces, and foreigners entered into his gates, and cast lots upon Jerusalem, even you were as one of them. But you should not have looked on the day of your brother in the day that he became a stranger; neither should you have rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction; neither should you have spoken proudly in the day of distress.
You should not have entered into the gate of My people in the day of their calamity; yea, you should not have looked on their affliction in the day of their calamity, nor have laid hands on their substance in the day of their calamity; Neither should you have stood in the crossway, to cut off those of his that did escape; neither should you have delivered up those of his that did remain in the day of distress.
For the Day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as you have done, it shall be done unto you: your reward shall return upon your own head…
For as you have drunk upon My Holy Mountain so shall all the heathen drink continually, yea, they shall drink, and they shall swallow down, and they shall be as though they had not been.
But upon Mount Zion shall be deliverance, there shall be holiness; the House of Jacob shall possess their possessions. And the House of Jacob shall be a fire, the House of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD has spoken it.”Obadiah 1:8-18
Indignation of the LORD
“The prophecy of the Word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi. ‘I have loved you’, saith the LORD. Yet you say, ‘Wherein have You loved us?’ Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob and I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness. Whereas Edom/Esau said, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, ‘They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, ‘The border of wickedness’ and ‘the people against whom the LORD has indignation for ever.’”Malachi 1:1-4
“And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac (Saxons/Isaac’s sons); (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him that calls;) It was said to her, ‘The elder shall serve the younger’. As it is written, Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.
What are we saying then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. For he said to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”Paul – Romans 9:10-15
“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you and thereby many be defiled; Lest there be any fornicator/idolater, or profane/wicked person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.
For you know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.”Barnabas – Hebrews 12:14-24
This Generation shall not pass away…
“So likewise you, when you see these things come to pass, you know that the kingdom of God is near at hand. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass away, till all is fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. So take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day comes upon you in unawareness.
For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Adam.”Jesus – Luke 21:31-36
Love your Brother
“In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever does not do righteousness is not of God, neither he that does not love his brother. For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another. Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And why did he slay him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.
Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that does not love his brother abides in death. Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer: and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”
If a man says, ‘I love God’ but hates his brother, he is a liar: for he that does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen? And this commandment we have from Him, ‘That he who loves God, loves his brother also.’”1 John 3:10-15, 4:20-21
The Wise recognize Wickedness
“These six things does the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto Him. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood. An heart that devises wicked imaginations, feet that are swift in running to mischief. A false witness that speaks lies and he that sows discord among brethren.”Proverbs 6:12-19
Babylon, Mother of Harlots
“Come out of her, my people, that you are not partakers of her sins and that you do not receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities… For your merchants are the great men of the earth; and by your sorceries/pharmacia were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets and of saints and of all that were slain upon the earth… For strong is the LORD God who judges her…”Revelation 18
“Upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus…”Revelation 17
One Nation Under God
“Thus saith the LORD God, Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen… And I will make them one nation in the land… and they shall no more be two nations neither will they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all: Neither shall they defile themselves anymore with their detestable idols, nor any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling places wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be My people and I will be their God.”Ezekiel 37
