Trump signs declaration recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over disputed Golan Heights – What Does Hosea 5 Have to Say About This?

Golan Heights: Trump signs order recognising occupied area as Israeli

President Donald Trump has officially recognised Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, seized from Syria in 1967, in a move hailed as “historic” by Israel’s prime minister.

Benjamin Netanyahu, who faces an election next month, was by Mr Trump’s side as he signed the proclamation.

Syria said Mr Trump’s decision was “a blatant attack on its sovereignty”.

Israel annexed the Golan Heights in 1981, in a move that is not recognised internationally. (Read This Entire Article…)

So What does this mean prophetically?

This is what is happening right before our eyes!

Hosea 5:9-11 (ESV)
9 Ephraim shall become a desolation
in the day of punishment;
among the tribes of Israel
I make known what is sure.
10 The princes of Judah have become
like those who move the landmark; (Israel taking Golan Hts. from Syria)
upon them I will pour out my wrath like water.
11 Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment,
because he was determined to go after filth.

Ephraim represents the United States of America. Yes, another indictment against the queen of nations! GET READY FOR JUDGMENT AMERICA! REPENT!

Here are some of the major reasons I believe the USA is predominantly Ephraim:

Ephraim was to vastly out‑number Manasseh (Deut.33:17), ten to one. The population of the USA is 327 million, compared to England’s 66 million and Canada’s 37 million.

The USA is the “YOUNGER” nation to rise; England is like an OLDER brother, though both dwelled together for many centuries. Of course, Ephraim was the younger brother. It only makes sense that the younger would rise up later than the older brother. Of course, when Ephraim was “fully grown,” he excelled his older brother, even as the USA has excelled England, and has grown much greater.

Many nobility also came to the USA. Our presidents have ALL had links with English royalty; and our leading entrepreneurs, the Abbots, Astors, Carnegies, Rockefellers, Mellons, etc., have family lies that go way back.

Ephraim was to posses the greatest natural resources and beauty ‑‑ including “verdant valleys” (Isa.28:1). The US is the most fertile nation in the world, called the “breadbasket” of the world. Our valleys like the Shenandoah, the Piedmont, the Central Valley of California, the Willamette Valley of Oregon, are world famous ‑‑ we are a nation of awesome valleys, agricultural fruitfulness, and abundance (Deut.33:13‑16).

Ephraim and Manasseh together have “pushed the peoples to the ends of the earth” (Deut.33:17). Manasseh is like a firstborn (which he was literally) bull, and the bull is a symbol of England. Ephraim is more like the “wild ox” of this verse‑‑ younger, wilder, less settled ‑‑ you’ve heard of the “Wild West,” and the “wild American,” like many younger brothers, we tend to be a little on the “wild side,” and therefore many Europeans look on us with a little distrust, consternation, and even bewilderment.

Ephraim’s very name literally means “doubly fruitful.” Well, look at the evidence! The US has been VERY fruitful during the 20th century ‑‑ abundantly so. DOUBLY so. Joseph is a fruitful bough (Gen.49:22), so Manasseh is also fruitful ‑‑ but Ephraim (USA) doubly so! So it should be: Ephraim was given the BLESSING of the firstborn (Gen.48:13‑14), even though Manasseh was the actual firstborn. The firstborn historically was to inherit a DOUBLE PORTION. So it falls to reason that Ephraim ‑‑ the USA ‑‑ should have a double portion of blessings, which we certainly to ‑‑ geographically, agriculturally, economically, militarily, population‑wise, etc. It is said that if America catches cold, the whole world sneezes.

Jacob said Manasseh also would be great ‑‑ England and Canada, etc. But he said “truly his YOUNGER brother shall be GREATER than he, and his descendants shall become a MULTITUDE OF NATIONS [I.E., “STATES”]”(Gen.48:19). Many have misunderstood this. In Hebrew, the word for”nations” here is goyim, and means “peoples, nations, states, a troop, a flight,” a word that has the sense of “massing.” Thus Jacob really said the descendants of Ephraim would become a TROOP of people, a MASS of people, MANY states, families, or groupings. Thus we have in fulfillment of this prophecy THE FIFTY STATES of the United States ‑‑ we became 50 different states, UNITED, but ONE PEOPLE. Each state has its own constitution and government. At its greatest, the British Empire or Commonwealth did control vast parts of the earth, when you include India, but these were GENTILE nations under British rule ‑‑ they were not Josephite people at all. The blessing of Jacob was not that Ephraim would rule over many nations, per se ‑‑ it was that Ephraim would reproduce and BECOME a multitude or troop or massing of people ‑‑ by having a greater multitude of descendants, becoming many groupings ‑‑ i.e., fifty United STATES!

Geographically, in ancient Israel, the house of Manasseh was divided, separated into East Manasseh and West Manasseh, with the Jordan River the dividing line. West Manasseh stretched to the Mediterranean Sea. Ephraim was south of Manasseh, stretching from the Jordan to the Mediterranean. Today, we have the same juxtaposition of the two tribes. Manasseh is once again in the north ‑‑ West Manasseh is Canada, north of the US, with both of them stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans; and East Manasseh is England, lying EAST of the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic, like the ancient Jordan River, divides East and West Manasseh.

Ephraim was prophesied to become “joined to idols” (Hos.4:17). Idols abound in modern USA ‑‑ Hollywood stars, rock music stars, sports stars, automobiles, and physical things of every description. We are a nation of idolaters, as Ephraim was prophesied to become. “Harlotry” is so rampant itis another sign of Ephraim ‑‑ we are the pornography capital of the world ‑‑ the San Fernando Valley in California, just west of “Hollyweird” (verse 18). Bribery of government officials is rampant ‑‑ only they call it ‘political contributions” (verse 18).  America truly fits the end‑time description of Ephraim.

Ephraim was to be a “mixed” people. God said “Ephraim has MIXED himself among the peoples; Ephraim is a cake unturned [burnt on one side, white on the other]. Aliens have devoured his strength, but he does not know it”(Hos.7:8‑9). America, the USA, is the “melting pot of the world.” We have mixed ourselves with Gentiles more than any other nation. Europeans (until recent years) tend to be xenophobic, like Japan; racial mixing is frowned upon, and foreign laborers are distrusted and persecuted. Whereas in America, we welcome foreigners of every description ‑‑ blacks from Africa, Europeans, Chinese immigrants who helped build our intercontinental railroads, and Vietnamese, Cuban refugees, and of course many people from Central America, not to mention millions of Mexicans, both legal and illegal, without our borders. Truly we fulfill this prophecy of being “mixed” ‑‑ more so than any other nation! Plus the fact that “aliens” in our midst are devouring our strength, getting free education, medical benefits, and bringing their own polluting customs and practices.


I could go on and on. But just two more “proofs” that the US is predominantly.

Ephraim was the 13th tribe. He was born last, of the tribe heads, born

to Joseph in Egypt, after Manasseh, the 12th tribe. The US flag has 13

stripes, the US originally had 13 colonies, in the US seal we find 13 stars

above an eagle [symbol of the “king of the air,” or airpower], also 13 arrows

clutched in his left claw, and an olive branch with 13 leaves in its right

claw, with a shield of 13 red and white stripes. The number 13 is associated

with Ephraim AND with America!


The northern tribes of Israel were taken into captivity by Assyria in

718‑721 B.C. God foretold Israel would be punished for “seven times”

(Lev.26:18, etc.; see also Dan.4:23). Prophetically, a “time” can equal a

“year” in fulfillment (Num.14:34; Ezek.6:4‑5). A perfect “prophetic year” is

360 days; each day is a year in fulfillment. This apparently is based on the

original year, as it was in the days of Noah. Noah was in the ark from the

17th day of the second month till the 17th day of the seventh month ‑‑ a

total of 150 days (see Gen.7:11‑13; 7:24l 8:3‑4). Thus five months equalled

150 days ‑‑ or 30 days per month. Obviously, Noah was not using the modern

Jewish calendar! If we extrapolate, then a year of 12 30 day months would

equal 360 days. Therefore, Israel’s punishment was 360 X 7 = 2520 years in

fulfillment. If we count 2520 years from 718‑721, we come to A.D. 1800‑1803.

At that time the punishment would be terminated, and God would begin to

BLESS the tribes with their intended blessings ‑‑ the blessings He gave to>

Abraham, Isaac, and Israel ‑‑ and the tribal fathers, including Joseph.

What happened in 1803 in the world that was of any prophetic significance?

What great blessing occurred in that year? Who received it?

In 1803 Thomas Jefferson, the third US president, purchased the Louisiana

Purchase from Napoleon of France ‑‑ all the land stretching from the

Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean. This vast tract was bought for

pennies to the acre. The Lewis and Clark Expedition traversed this huge

tract, finally arriving on the Pacific Coast, at the mouth of the Columbia

River. Never in history has a nation expanded so quickly, so vastly, and for

so little. The birthright promises were to accrue to Ephraim ‑‑ and this was

a mighty geographical extension of the United States of Ephraim!


So perhaps you see more clearly now why I truly believe the U.S. of A.

is and must be, by all rights, and prophetic understanding, the nation that

best represents the younger son of Joseph ‑‑ Ephraim ‑‑ with a mixture of all

the tribes dwelling in her, including of course many of Manasseh!

The question has arisen about the Golan Heights being the Biblical land of Israel. Steven BenNun answers that question in the video below starting at the 20 minute mark.

Here are the scriptures that he uses to prove what he says about the Golan Hts. not all belonging to Israel.

Isaiah 9:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)
Nevertheless the gloom will not be upon her who is distressed,
As when at first He lightly esteemed. The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
And afterward more heavily oppressed her,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,
In Galilee of the Gentiles.
2 The people who walked in darkness
Have seen a great light;
Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death,
Upon them a light has shined.

3 You have multiplied the nation
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You
According to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

Matt 4:12 Now when Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, He departed to Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying:

15 “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
By the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles:
16 The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death
Light has dawned.”

Gen 31:44 Now therefore, come, let us make a covenant, you and I, and let it be a witness between you and me.”

45 So Jacob took a stone and set it up as a pillar. 46 Then Jacob said to his brethren, “Gather stones.” And they took stones and made a heap, and they ate there on the heap. 47 Laban called it Jegar Sahadutha, but Jacob called it Galeed. 48 And Laban said, “This heap is a witness between you and me this day.” Therefore its name was called Galeed, 49 also Mizpah,because he said, “May the Lord watch between you and me when we are absent one from another. 50 If you afflict my daughters, or if you take other wives besides my daughters, although no man is with us—see, God is witness between you and me!”

51 Then Laban said to Jacob, “Here is this heap and here is this pillar, which I have placed between you and me. 52 This heap is a witness, and this pillar is a witness, that I will not pass beyond this heap to you, and you will not pass beyond this heap and this pillar to me, for harm. 53 The God of Abraham, the God of Nahor, and the God of their father judge between us.” And Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac. 

Deut. 4:41 Then Moses set apart three cities on this side of the Jordan, toward the rising of the sun, 42 that the manslayer might flee there, who kills his neighbor unintentionally, without having hated him in time past, and that by fleeing to one of these cities he might live: 43 Bezer in the wilderness on the plateau for the Reubenites, Ramoth in Gilead for the Gadites, and Golan in Bashan(This is Not in Israel) for the Manassites.


Here is the map of Israel that Steven uses in the video and the Golan Hts. Is not Israel’s territory.

The partition plan from 1947 did not give the Golan Hts. to the Jews…see this…

A map for the Balfour Declaration of 1917…still, the Golan was not part of that…

To conclude – neither did the Palestine Partition Plan of 1947 OR the Balfour Declaration of 1917 or 1922 ever give “the Jews”…Judah the Golan, it has always been part of Syria.

Secondly, the Golan area was originally part of Manasseh land portion…see a map of the original 13 tribal areas… and with that, since the Northern Kingdom of Israel was divorced by God (see Jeremiah 3), Israel (Northern Kingdom) was kicked out of the Land of Israel and therefore that land was lost to due their idolatry…and given to Syria…

Furthermore, the Jews (Judah) never had any ownership of the Golan…ever…

So from that perspective, the Jews (The Southern Kingdom of Judah) DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO THAT LAND…and Deut. 19:14 applies…

Deuteronomy 19:14(ESV)

“You shall not move your neighbor’s landmark, which the men of old have set, in the inheritance that you will hold in the land that the Lord your God is giving you to possess.


In Conclusion this verse seals the deal for me.

Deut 27:17 CEB “Cursed is anyone who tampers with their neighbor’s property lines.” All the people will reply: “We agree!”
Deut 27:17 KJV Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour’s landmark. And all the people shall say, Amen
Duet 27:17 NLT ‘Cursed is anyone who steals property from a neighbor by moving a boundary marker.’ And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’

This is exactly what is going on here!
This land was given to the descendants of Abraham and Syria is of the descendants of Abraham as well.



Psalm 91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”

Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the [a]fowler
And from the perilous pestilence.
He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.

Because you have made the Lordwho is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.

14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”

  1. (Thank God, a confirmation, and from none other than Pastor Faircloth, Thank You Jesus!I knew something was up with all of these favors from President Trump to Israel, but I’m still new at being patient and letting the Holy Spirit discern for me the answers and the Truth! This is why Jeff Byerly and Pastor Faircloth and Julie Whedbee and Ali Winters are so important to me and my search for the Truth. Because we all see in part and only together in Jesus through His Holy Spirit can we see the big picture find His Truth.)

    “America R.I.P!”


    America your journey is nearing its end- a journey of prosperity and achievements, paved by the blood of slavery and usury! You thought that I have forgotten your sins- those which you have not confessed nor taken responsibility for. I have not forgotten, they are ever before Me! The increase of My Judgments are upon you and they shall intensify as you involve yourself in My Land Israel! For you know not- that is your assignment and that is your purpose! For I have given you a king who is an architect (President Donald Trump) – a builder who can see by design. I have chosen him to fulfill the prophecy of My Word! He shall design the Temple of the Last Days! Though he shall not occupy nor visit her steps, for his purpose shall be fulfilled!

    America, you have no idea of your purpose, but I do and I have shown it to you through your prophets and watchmen, but you refuse to see it. Therefore, you are blinded and deafened to these words! Prepare for your destiny America! Build the Temple on divided land (The Palestinian Peace Plan Business Deal and Favor number 4), and I shall divide you from within!”

    Scripture Reference for this message is: (Luke 21)

    Wow! 🙂


    Click on the link above to read a Jerusalem Post article that I just happened to read today that kind of backs up what i was saying above about Donald Trump’s sly savvy businessman tactics and what the future could possibly hold for him and Israel.

    Down below are also excerpts from a Tom Horn book called: “The Rabbis, Donald Trump, and the Top-Secret Plan to Build the Third Temple: Unveiling the Incendiary Scheme by Religious Authorities, Government Agents, and Jewish Rabbis to Invoke Messiah”, that I didn’t even know existed until today, but I am now looking forward to buying and reading it.


    Recent developments have taken place that contribute to the Temple Movement s goals and the realization of the rebuilding of the Temple in our lifetime. For thousands of years, the world has heard warning that there is a coming a day when the Man of Sin, the Antichrist, will arise to pilot the greatest deception in human history. Whereas almost anyone alive today can discuss the dictatorial global economics, societal horrors, and eventual apocalypse that follows his arrival, few appear to comprehend that there are negotiations in the workings at this precise moment to build the very location where the abomination of desolation will stand in the holy place. This, as the book of Daniel prophesied, will be the catalyst event….The beginning of the end.

    Many believe that President Trump is Israel’s next King Cyrus the facilitator and overseer of the building of the Third Temple and that his influential role in that pursuit is being guided by Hashem (God), Himself, in order to restore to His people the most sacred site of worship. Is a secret plan under development for construction of the Third Temple? And as these plans are increasingly expedited, will Trump succeed in raising this landmark, only to usher in the end of days?

    In The Rabbis, Donald Trump, and the Top-Secret Plan to Build the Third Temple, you will learn:

    -The connection between Donald Trump, the Rabbis, and a behind-the scenes scheme to erect the Third Temple

    -The role Trump’s Orthodox Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner is playing with Saudi Arabia with plans to control the Temple Mount

    -How Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel s capitol and his moving the US Embassy there sent a powerful signal to Third Temple advocates

    -The controversy over the Temple Mount location and why the spot on which the Third Temple will be built will soon be unveiled

    -What the Abomination of Desolation is and what the globe’s most powerful political personalities have to say about its future appearance on holy ground

    -How recent archaeological site metal-detector scans near the Qumran Caves point to the discovery of ancient Temple treasures (including the Ark of the Covenant), and how that relates to the building of the Third Temple

    -The mystery of the Copper Scroll and what it disclosed

    -Events involving Trump and other world leaders as the building of the Third Temple is underway, and the obvious end-times signals these events raise questions about

    -What is to take place when the Temple is finally constructed and then desecrated.

    (I wish I could have attached the photo of the cover of this book but I’m not allowed to I guess, but if you just do a Google Image search for the title you can see it for yourselves.)

  3. First President Trump does Israel a favor in the form of the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capitol and then in favor number two he moves the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and now in favor number 3, President Trump recognizes the Golan Heights as belonging to the State of Israel. Hmm? Something’s definitely not right with all of these favors!

    Isn’t President Trump known throughout America and the world, as being a very savvy businessman? Well whats the profit in this for America?, What is President Trump to gain in doing Israel 3 solid favors and receiving nothing in return? What’s could possibly be next? Favor number 4? What would that be I wonder?

    Well if I was Prime Minister Netanyahu, and since he is on a roll in being granted all of these favors, I would ask President Trump to sign an Executive Order recognizing that Israel has the right to re-build the Third Temple whenever and wherever it wants to! I mean why not? He’s already 3 for 3 and has nothing to lose, except for President Trump to say no. Big Deal it never hurts to ask, right

    If I was Prime Minister Netanyahu I would be extremely cautious getting favors for nothing from a very savvy businessman like President Trump because he might find himself being called upon in the future to return a favor for a favor. (Think “Godfather 1”, whenever someone needed a favor from the Godfather, as in that book/movie, all anyone had to do to be granted a favor from the Godfather was to do a favor in return in the future if the Godfather ever needed one and/or called upon them to return a favor.)

    Myself, personally I’m thinking that whatever it is that President Trump is gonna want from Prime Minister Netanyahu in the future, it is going to be a pretty big favor. A favor so big that Prime Minister Netanyahu will either have to decline this favor and then reap the consequences of saying no to the Godfather, or he will oblige and reap the consequences of the people of Israel rising up and revolting against him, especially if he say’s yes to President Trump’s favor request, which is none other than the giving away of the West bank of Israel unto the Palestinian people, so as to create a Palestinian State, thus dividing Israel and allowing President Trump to reap the benefits of being not only the first human being but the first President of the United States to ever resolve the Middle East Peace Crisis.

    This spectacular feat would certainly guarantee President Trump the Noble Peace Prize for sure, and as long as both sides keep the peace in the Middle East, all will live happily ever after, or will an instantaneous World War break out, the minute this news is released. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    Like I said, President Trump if he is even half of the businessman that he thinks he is, he will eventually cash in on all of these favors that he has given Israel and Israel will have to then pay the price for all of them, no matter how great it seemed at the time when they asked for and then accepted them.

    Remember this, Syria and Israel are already at war and have been bombing each other regularly now for years. The Golan heights is about a whole lot more than it just formerly used to belonging to Syria and being a strategic defense mechanism for Israel.

    The Golan Heights is also home to vast billions of dollars in minerals, such as oil and natural gas and possibly Diamond mines as well. (South of Katzrin in the southern Golan Heights, The Petroleum Council of Israel’s Ministry of Energy and Water Resources secretly awarded a drilling license covering half the area of the Golan Heights to a local subsidiary of New Jersey-based Genie Energy Ltd. headed by Effi Eitam called Afek. Afek discovered a substantial amount of oil and natural gas reserves throught the southern region of the Golan heights. Afek Oil and Natural Gas is a subsidiary of the America’s Genie Energy Corporation.)

    Human rights groups have said the drilling in these areas violates international law as the Golan Heights is in occupied territory. However because of the Executive Order that President Trump signed yesterday the Golan heights is no longer in occupied territory. Also the Israel National Oil Company (INOC) was also granted shaft-sinking permits in the Golan Heights, where they estimate a recovery potential of over two million barrels of oil, equivalent at the time to be worth millions and millions of dollars, this of course is only the beginning of what has been found in just the Southern region, but oil and natural gas in the Golan Heights is speculated to be worth hundreds of billions of dollars and there are still the North East and West regions to explore.

    So it appears that this really is one huge favor that President Trump has done for Israel. Added to a couple of other huge favors that he has also granted Israel. I wonder what he wants in return? No wonder The Russian’s and the Iranian’s are helping Syria protect that area.Rest assured when it comes to hundreds of billions of dollars, Leaders are assassinated, Nations are destroyed and taken over, and certainly Wars, even World Wars will be fought. look what we did to Libya and Iraq and this we did for much less.

    1. Joshua 21:27 King James Version (KJV)
      27 And unto the children of Gershon, of the families of the Levites, out of the other half tribe of Manasseh they gave Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, to be a city of refuge for the slayer; and Beeshterah with her suburbs; two cities.

      1 Chronicles 6:71 King James Version (KJV)
      71 Unto the sons of Gershom were given out of the family of the half tribe of Manasseh, Golan in Bashan with her suburbs, and Ashtaroth with her suburbs:
