Like my grandparents before them, my parents Luther and Naomi served as foster parents for some years providing a temporary loving home for children whose own families had broken down. From the Oglala tribe of the Lakota nation, two brothers aged eight and six came to stay with my folks.
One day the boys helped my father clean the workshop on our farm. As he swept the floor he gave them directions to carry this here, that there and something somewhere else. Finally the younger brother piped up and said, "Lute, who died and left you boss?"
Likewise, although unfortunately not with the same cheerful affection, many tribes and nations frequently pipe up today, demanding, "Who died and left America boss?"
Who gave the United States the right to throw its superpower weight around, pushing others here or there? What has made America think she can dominate world history from mid-20th century to now? Why does she possess and control such a gigantic share of all the natural and human resources, wealth and influence, yet have such a small percentage of the world's population? Why do the stars and stripes of the American flag dominate the bulk of the sea-gates, air travel gates (strategic airports) and even space-gates (satellites) of planet earth?
Who said that English should be the default language of modern computer technology? Speaking of English, the same questions could have been asked and applied to a degree to the British people for they were the global "boss" of nations for 150 years prior to America's ascendancy.
America 's Civil War president Abraham Lincoln eloquently summarized this international inequity that heralded America's future command of world power:
"In the great journal of things happening under the sun, we, the American People … find ourselves in the peaceful possession, of the fairest portion of the earth, as regards extent of territory, fertility of soil, and salubrity of climate. We find ourselves under the government of a system of political institutions, conducing more essentially to the ends of civil and religious liberty, than any of which the history of former times tells us" (Abraham Lincoln, address to the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois, January 27, 1838).
Best land, best system, most freedom of anywhere on earth—no wonder President Lincoln referred to America as the "last, best hope of mankind." Amazingly America's inheritance of so much of the best stuff happened because of events in ancient history.
"We, when mounting the stage of existence, found ourselves the legal inheritors of these fundamental blessings. We toiled not in the acquirement or establishment of them—they are a legacy bequeathed us, by a once hardy, brave, and patriotic, but now lamented and departed race of ancestors" (Abraham Lincoln, ibid.)"
Hmmm… who died and left America boss—at least for now? Who were those ancient, lamented and departed ancestors?
If we can discover the true origins of the early American and British peoples who gave birth to the powerful nations they built, then can't we also learn something of the ancient tribal origins of other nations? Then, by prophetic extension, can't we also learn things to expect in the years ahead.
Yes, we can. That knowledge is available for all to see!
The undeniable hand of God has been guiding the history of modern descendants of His physical nation of old. Therefore we can see His hand upon the incredible events prophesied for our immediate future.
It has been positively established that America and Britain's lamented and departed ancestors were the ancient biblical tribe of Joseph, one of the twelve tribes of ancient Israel. Please note, they always were and still are distinct from the Jews who descended from their brother-tribe of Judah.
As with a key, by knowing their ancient tribal origins you can unlock to your understanding the grand, divine and amazing design of history. With that knowledge you can put faces on national populations mentioned in Bible prophecies for today and the days ahead. Those same prophecies also point directly to the second coming of Jesus Christ to set up of the Kingdom of God on earth.
Yes, America has become the superpower "boss" among the nations for the moment. But after a few more troubled and traumatic years the good news is that a new Boss, the true Messiah, will arrive to become the Lord over all nations.
