And the second he called Ephraim [to be fruitful], For [he said] God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.

A. The Second is Fruitful

"And the second he called Ephraim [to be fruitful],"

Second or "sheny" in Hebrew meaning: double, second, again. JESUS CHRIST as our LORD, SAVIOR and MASTER is The Second Person in the Trinity and He has doubled the FATHER GOD, second in command, power and authority to ABBA, FATHER, and Again He has shown us the FATHER through His Body that can be touched, kissed and hugged.

Ephraim or "ephrayim" in Hebrew meaning: double fruit.

Genesis 41:52 (The Message)

He named his second son Ephraim (Double Prosperity), saying, "God has prospered me in the land of my sorrow."

Whatever GOD, the FATHER has given us from creation, JESUS doubled it. Hallelujah!

We receive double:

1. Double portion of Divine Protection - no weapon can kill us and no tongue can destroy us

Isaiah 54:17 (Amplified Bible)

But no weapon that is formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall show to be in the wrong. This [peace, righteousness, security, triumph over opposition] is the heritage of the servants of the Lord [those in whom the ideal Servant of the Lord is reproduced]; this is the righteousness or the vindication which they obtain from Me [this is that which I impart to them as their justification], says the Lord.

Jeremiah 15:20-21 (Amplified Bible)

And I will make you to this people a fortified, bronze wall; they will fight against you, but they will not prevail over you, for I am with you to save and deliver you, says the Lord.

And I will deliver you out of the hands of the wicked, and I will redeem you out of the palms of the terrible and ruthless tyrants.

2. Double portion of Spirit of Anointing - we have the HOLY SPIRIT and we have our human spirit made alive again or born again

2 Kings 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

And when they had gone over, Elijah said to Elisha, Ask what I shall do for you before I am taken from you. And Elisha said, I pray you, let a double portion of your spirit be upon me.

3. Double portion of blessing/prosperity, double portion of everything the FATHER has.

Deuteronomy 21:17 (Amplified Bible)

But he shall acknowledge the son of the disliked as the firstborn by giving him a double portion of all that he has, for he was the first issue of his strength; the right of the firstborn is his.

1 Samuel 1:5 (Amplified Bible)

But to Hannah he gave a double portion, for he loved Hannah, but the Lord had given her no children.
