Archive for the ‘a second chance for the jews’ Category

In the greatest love story every known
There was a parting of ways, tragically so
But, immediately, a second chance was shown
As American Jews embraced Jesus, years ago

Now in the latter-days
He is saving the best for last
To restore the Jews to His ways
As, one last lamb is slain for the past
Always there are second chances
Someday you (His people) will celebrate
That in different circumstances
You had peace through Jesus, I can hardly wait!


In the Old Testament, the second son of Joseph and Asenath (Gen. 41:50–5246:20). Contrary to the traditional manner, Ephraim received the birthright blessing instead of Manasseh, who was the elder son (Gen. 48:17–20). Ephraim became the father of the tribe of Ephraim.

The tribe of Ephraim

Ephraim was given the birthright in Israel (1 Chr. 5:1–2Jer. 31:9). In the last days their privilege and responsibility is to bear the priesthood, take the message of the restored gospel to the world, and raise an ensign to gather scattered Israel (Isa. 11:12–132 Ne. 21:12–13). The children of Ephraim will crown with glory those from the north countries who return in the last days (D&C 133:26–34).

The stick of Ephraim or Joseph

A record of one group from the tribe of Ephraim that was led from Jerusalem to America about 600 B.C. This group’s record is called the stick of Ephraim or Joseph, or the Book of Mormon. It and the stick of Judah (the Bible) form a unified testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ, his resurrection, and his divine work among these two segments of the house of Israel.
  • A branch of Ephraim will be broken off and will write another testament of Christ:JST, Gen. 50:24–26, 30–31;
  • The stick of Judah and the stick of Joseph will become one:Ezek. 37:15–19;
  • The writings of Judah and of Joseph shall grow together:2 Ne. 3:12;
  • The Lord speaks to many nations:2 Ne. 29;
  • The keys of the record of the stick of Ephraim were committed to Moroni:D&C 27:5;
