The Great Seal

Here’s what Bro. Branham said about the Great Seal:
“ I don’t think I have a dollar bill in my pocket. But there is… Yes, I do; I have a dollar bill. I’m sorry. On the back of this dollar bill you’ll see the seal of the United States on the left side, looking towards you. From me it’d be on the left side; yours, it’s right. It’s the eagle, and also in there the coat of arms and so forth. But on this side here, right side to me, you see the pyramid. And you notice, above the pyramid is the capstone, and beneath there says, “The Great Seal.”(…)” ~Message of Grace.

We know the Capstone represents Christ. Would you be surprised to find out that the designers had the great ‘Providence’ of God in mind when they placed the “eye of providence” over the pyramid? Following is an excerpt taken from an online article: The Strange symbolism on the $1 Bill.

““What’s the story behind the great seal of the United States?
According to the State Department, which has been the official trustee of the seal since 1789, both the obverse (front) and reverse (back) of the seal are rich with symbolism. The obverse picturing the eagle is a bit easier to explain. The bird holds 13 arrows to show the nation’s strength in war, but it also grasps an olive branch with 13 leaves and 13 olives that symbolize the importance of peace. (The recurring number 13, which also appears in the stripes on the eagle’s shield and the constellation of stars over its head, is a nod to the original 13 states.) The shield floats unsupported over the eagle as a reminder that Americans should rely on their own virtue and strength.
The symbolism of the pyramid on the seal’s reverse is trickier. The pyramid has 13 steps — the designers apparently never got tired of the 13 motif — and the Roman numeral for 1776 is emblazoned across the bottom. The all-seeing Eye of Providence at the top of the pyramid symbolizes the divine help the early Americans needed in establishing the new country. The pyramid itself symbolizes strength and durability.
The divine overtones don’t stop with the unblinking eye, though. The Latin motto Annuit Coeptis appears over the pyramid; it translates into “He [God] has favored our undertaking.” The scroll underneath the pyramid reads Novus Ordo Seclorum, or “A new order of the ages,” which was meant to signify the dawn of the new American era.””
