I was moved to write this article, ISRAEL BLESSED YUSEF TWO SONS MANASSEH AND EPHRAIM,
because of a very intriguing question asked by brother Anthony. His question was concerning Yusef the son of our father Israel. The question he asked was; “Why is Yusef’s [Joseph’s] son Manasseh referred to as half tribe?” I usually answer him directly but the revelation of his question is too important to not reveal to all that are seeking the truth and desire to understand the knowledge of our house Israel and our pass. The revelation to his question is this, Yusef’s son Manasseh is referred to as half tribe. Is because when Yusef was in the land of Mizraim [Egypt] he had to sons Manasseh and Ephraim not being born in Israel our father Israel blessed them both but the younger son Ephraim he blessed above his older brother Manasseh. Nonetheless Yusef one tribe had two sons Ephraim and the other half Manasseh of which Yaakov blessed both Manasseh and Ephraim in his name “Israel” and in the name of our fathers “Abraham and Isaac” although Manasseh is referred to as half tribe he is in one1ness of the tribes of Israel. As you can read Israel’s revelation of Yusef’s two sons Manasseh and Ephraim as it is written:
Genesis 48:1 And it came to pass after these things, that one told Yusef, Behold, thy father is sick: and he took with him his two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim.
2 And one told Yaakov, and said, Behold, thy son Yusef cometh unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed.
3 And Yaakov said unto Yusef, Elohim Almighty appeared unto me at Luz in the land of Canaan, and blessed me,
4 And said unto me, Behold, I will make thee fruitful, and multiply thee, and I will make of thee a multitude of people; and will give this land to thy seed after thee for an everlasting possession.
5 And now thy two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, which were born unto thee in the land of Mizraim before I came unto thee into Mizraim, are mine; as Reuben and Simeon, they shall be mine.
6 And thy issue, which thou begettest after them, shall be thine, and shall be called after the name of their brethren in their inheritance.
7 And as for me, when I came from Padan, Rachel died by me in the land of Canaan in the way, when yet there was but a little way to come unto Ephrath: and I buried her there in the way of Ephrath; the same is Bethlehem.
8 And Israel beheld Yusef’s sons, and said, Who are these?
9 And Yusef said unto his father, They are my sons, whom Elohim hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them.
10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.
11 And Israel said unto Yusef, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, Elohim hath shewed me also thy seed.
12 And Yusef brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.
13 And Yusef took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him.
14 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.
15And he blessed Yusef, and said, Elohim, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, Elohim which fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name [Israel] be named on them [Ephraim and Manasseh], and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17 And when Yusef saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head.
18 And Yusef said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.
19 And his father 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 seed shall become a multitude of nations [Hebrew Nation].
