WHEN THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES ADOPTED BY STATUTORY LAW THE SHIELD AND THE MOTTO “IN GOD WE TRUST,” together with each feature on our escutcheon and the dies of the coinage of our mints, they wrought far better than they knew.
This national armorial motto stamped on our gold and silver, our nation’s only international medium of exchange, sent to the commercial marts of the world, a sign which provides a means for the national heralding of a national trust in Yahweh, the God of our fathers, who is specifically the nation Israel’s God, their shield and help.
This brings us to another of the thirteen features on our great national seal of the United States of America namely, Annuit Coeptis (He (Yahweh) hat prospered our undertakings). Connected with this motto are three other symbolic features with which we must deal in order to understand its full significance in relation to Ephraim; by adoption the thirteenth son of Israel though by birth the firstborn of Joseph, Jacob/Israel’s son. He and his posterity, together with Manasseh, his brother, and his posterity are the birthright holders and national representatives of the House of Joseph. (Genesis 48) Hence all historic facts concerning Joseph, together with the promises and prophecies relative to his posterity, must find their fulfilment, be enjoyed and reflected by the brood of his sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.
Consequently, a most potent evidence that the United States is the national and racial posterity of Ephraim, and member of the House of Joseph, lies in the fact that our nation has engraved on its national escutcheon, “He hath prospered our undertakings.”
