1)Â The Name America
America is named after Amerigo Vespucci. Machir son of Manasseh (Numbers 26:1) was the first born son of Manasseh.Â Â The name "Amerigo" is a Latinized version of the Hebrew "Ha-Macheri." Â "Ha-Macheri" (Numbers 26:29) means literally "Descendants of Machir" [it is translated as "Machirites"] BUT in Medieval Hebrew the expression came to be applied as a nickname to someone whose name was Machir. At all events the term America may be traced back to the Hebrew and means "They who Belong to," or "Those Descended from," Machir.
We identify America with Manasseh and Machir was the first born son of Manasseh.
"Machir" in Hebrew also connotes Capitalism and the USA is the foremost capitalist nation.
Who Was Machir? Were there Israelites in Canaan Before Moses?

3) Yank means Jacob.

4) Picture of Egypt on Great Seal.
The symbol of Manasseh was a picture of Egypt. This must have been a pyramid. A pyramidÂ is depicted on the US Great Seal (as portrayed on a Dollar Bill) representing the USA.

5) GI JOES.
We identify Britain with Ephraim and the USA with Manasseh. Both were sons of Joseph. "Joe" is short for Joseph. In WW2 American soldiers were nicknamed "GI Joes".
Manasseh was to become great AFTER Ephraim (Genesis 48:19). The USA became great after Britain.
6)Â Economic Power and Military Might.
Joseph (including Manasseh) was to become the greatest, most powerful (Numbers 24:7-9 Micah 5:7-9, Deuteronomy 33:27 33:29, Jeremiah 51:20-21, Zechariah 10:7), and most wealthy of all nations (Gen 27:28 49:25 Deut 33:13-16 Hoshea 2:8), and also extremely numerous (Genesis 15:5, 22:17, 24:60, 32:12, Numbers 23:10, Isaiah 10:22, 26:15 Hosea 1:10) .Â The USA fulfilled this role. The USA is still responsible for more than one-fifth of world economic output.Â The USA Defence expenditures, armies, airforce, and navy, etc taken together outweigh that of the rest of the world combined.
7)Â Joseph as Provider to all the World.
Joseph was responsible for feeding Egypt and the surrounding nations (Genesis 41:57, 42:6). The USA has aided and helped every nation on earth. The Green Revolution was the work of US Scientists funded by US philanthropic institutions. The Green RevolutionÂ enabled the production of plants and agricultural techniques adapted to solve problems of growth in Third World countries. 100s of millions of people are alive today thanks to the advances made by these steps.
8) Ends of the Earth.
The Ten Tribes were to be located at the Ends of the Earth (Isaiah 24:16, 26:15, 41:8-9 43:6 49:6). North America is at the end of the earth when measured from the Land of Israel.
9) Light to the Nations
The Ten Tribes were to be a light to the nations (Genesis 12:2-3, 18:18-19, 22:18Â Isaiah 42:1 42:6 Amos 5:15). This is what the USA has been.
