Read Genesis 48 vs. 1-20
- Jacob adopted Ephraim and Manasseh’s two grandson’s and his sons.
- Jacob blessed Manasseh the younger brother ahead of his elder brother Ephraim.
- Mannasseh and Ephraim were counted as part of the 12 tribes of Israel, though not sons of Jacob.
Why protocol is broken?

- For the sake of His honour and respect. If you honour God, He will honour you.
