The Great Seal of the U.S.A.
The Great Seal of the USA shows God’s Providence in leading the creation of the United States, reflected in its symbols as they can be found on each one dollar note.
From records available it is known that Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, after having been appointed by the "Continental Congress" to submit designs for a new national crest or seal, all submitted designs relating to the history of God's people Israel, being cognisant of a divine will that was over their destiny. Of these, Franklin and Jefferson, working independently, both submitted a similar design portraying Moses leading Israel out of Egypt.
When the design was finally adopted, the story of the Exodus and the scripture (EXODUS 19:4), concerning God bearing Israel forth on eagle's wings, caused them to choose the symbol of the eagle for the foundation of the Great Seal.
Manasseh was the thirteenth tribe. Whether by coincidence or by design, on their Seal they placed also 13 stars (on the original flag), 13 constellations, 13 stripes, 13 arrows, 13 olive berries, 13 olive leaves and 13 letters to their motto: "E pluribus unum", meaning "One among many."
Manasseh was indeed one among many tribes, and since God had said that,
"Joseph shall have two portions" (EZEKIEL 47:13), i.e. in Ephraim as well as in Manasseh, this made Manasseh effectively the thirteenth Israel tribe.

On the reverse side of the Seal they put a pyramid with 13 layers of stone, crowned by a Chief Cornerstone in which they put the all-seeing eye of God, and surrounding it two mottoes were inscribed. The first had 13 letters and the second seventeen, and they read as follows:
ANNUIT COEPTIS - "He that prospered our beginning."
NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM - "An old order of the ages is born anew."
It is curious also that all the symbols used on the American crest or Seal happen to be Israel symbols. For instance, stars or constellations are used symbolically for Israel in GENESIS 37:9-19, and in REVELATION 12:1.
Again in GENESIS 49:22 we are told that,
"Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well (of water);
whose branches run over the wall (in spreading out and colonising)
...". These branches are mentioned by Hosea as appertaining to the olive tree, viz.:
"I will be as the dew unto Israel... and his beauty shall be as the olive tree..." (HOSEA 14:5-6).
The apostle Paul likewise used the olive tree (See ROMANS 11) as an Israelite symbol; and today we find the American crest containing 13 olive leaves and 13 olive berries. Did all these symbols originate by chance only? Or did an omnipotent Creator have anything to do with their inspiration?
Finally there are 13 arrows on the crest. Arrows are mentioned in NUMBERS 24:5-8 to typify Israel's unconquerable strength in warfare:
"...he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows". In GENESIS 49:23-24, there is also a somewhat similar reference:
"The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob..."
Manasseh-America from 1606 A.D. onward, until the appointed time, became England's first colony (westwards), remaining as such in the divine plan for her to become a separated people outside Ephraim's Company of Nations, when she became the foretold "nation" or "great people" as a separate unit from her Ephraim-Israel brother nation. This separation, under the American Act of Independence, took place in the year A.D. 1776.
A WARNING: No "Nation" is saved... only the church... Although steeped in Israel's identification, the U.S.A. is crumbling under her own Godlessness. What a tragedy to see this wonderful, clever, outstanding people become their own god! Self-sufficient, trusting in their own capabilities. A nation possessing Israel's promises once again forgets her real strength.
America's "independence" from God is fatal. Only a genuine Holy Spirit revival can save America!
