TRACING OUR ANCESTORS #17
THE THRONE OF DAVID
As the object of this book is to trace the ancestors of the
race that forms the backbone of the people of the United States
of America, it may appear superfluous at first thought to deal
with the Throne of David; yet, as to many readers the very
thought and thread of this book is revolutionary from hitherto
held conceptions, so also will be to them the subject of the
Throne of David. Besides, many readers will find that they
themselves belong to the House of David. This is an age of
wonders, so don't be surprised at anything that is going to be
discovered or brought to light these days. These are great days,
despite the Depression, and greater days are yet in store for
many of us, but I am not so sure whether for all of us.
In our ninth chapter, dealing with Brutus, we have already
studied the foundations of the House of Judah. According to 1
Chronicles 2:3 and 4, Judah had five sons: Er, Onan, Shelah,
Pharez, and Zarah; but a reading of the 38th chapter of Genesis
makes it clear that Er and Onan died childless, and the 19th
verse of the 26th chapter of Numbers confirms it. This chapter
gives us the roster of the people of Israel who entered the land
of Canaan and tells us in Vvrves 20-22 that the descendants of
the other three sons of Judah numbered 76,500 people. These
people constitute the tribe of Judah but not the Jews. The Jews
were the remnant that came out of Babylonian captivity. It seems
that our theologians have studied the Bible backwards instead of
forwards; because the ancestors of the Jews were the tribe of
Judah, which was one of the tribes of Israel, does not make all
the Israelites Jews; yet such a naive idea is held even by the
most modern of our theologians and educators, and the only
authority they have for it is that their Sunday School teachers
said so and their grandmothers. Many Americans are descended from
Irish stock, but that would not make the people of Old Ireland
five or ten centuries ago Americans, would it? It is strange that
even our modern highbrows are so illogical in this respect and
still hold to very primitive ideas.
The firs chapter of Matthew gives us the, genealogy of Jesus
Christ, the son David, who came of the line of Pharez, Hezron,
Aram, Boaz, and Jesse. David was the second king of Israel, and
Solomon was the last. After the separation of the kingdom of
Judah from Israel in 970 B.C. the House of David ruled only over
the House of Judah, while Israel had kings of divers houses.
Zedekiah was the last Davidic king of Judah. His two sons were
killed before his eyes; then his own eyes were put out and he was
taken to Babylon as a prisoner by Nebuchadnezzar in 584 B.C., as
told in the 25th chapter of 2 Kings.
Was that the end of the Throne of David?
Orthodox Bible students tell us that it was and that the
throne was vacant and will be vacant until Christ returns again
to occupy it. But the promise was: "The scepter shall not depart
from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh
come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be." This
promise was made by the dying Jacob in the 10th verse of the 49th
chapter of Genesis. Oh, how little faith even orthodox Bible
students have had in the promises of the Scriptures. If Shiloh
refers here to the Messiah's first coming, then that promise was
only a fairy tale indeed, for nobody has held that Scepter from
the time of Zedekiah until Christ. Besides, that Scepter was a
literal Scepter; and Christ's Scepter has been a spiritual one,
at least until today. Orthodox Bible students in their eagerness
to hold up Christ have also done Him a great deal of harm when
they allow their wishes to outrun the statements of Scripture
concerning temporal matters.
The Old Testament is first of all a historical record of
the eople of Israel, and a prophetical forecast of their destiny
and those who question that, whether they be modern critics or
orthodox believers, if they spiritualize whatever is possible,
have done untold harm to the Old Book.
"Ought ye not to know that the Lord God of Israel gave the
kingdom over Israel to David for ever, even to him and to his
sons by a covenant of salt?"---2 Chronicles 13:5.
If our orthodox friends believe that these are God's Words,
then I would like to ask them how much of this promise they
really do believe.
The Word says: "David shall rule over Israel forever." But
unfortunately it did not say "where," so the faithful could see
it. Again in I Kings 9:5 Jehovah promises: "Then I will
establish the throne of thy kingdom upon Israel forever, as I
promised to David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a
man upon the throne of Israel."
In the 89thh Psalm Jehovah establishes His Covenant with
David and his house forever.
"I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David
my servant, thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy
throne to all generenations. Selah ... I have found David my
servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: with whom my hand
shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. The
enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict
him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague
them that hate him. But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be
with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. I will set
his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers ...
Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the
earth. My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant
shall stand fast with him. His seed also will I make to endure
for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. If his children
forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; if they break my
statutes, and keep not my commandments; then will I visit their
transgression with the rod, and their inquity with stripes.
Nevertheless my loving kindness will I not utterly take from him,
or suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break,
nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I
sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed
shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful
witness in heaven. Selah."
As long as the sun endures, so long shall that Covenant
last; and as the sun has been shining every day since David's
time that Covenant must be still in force, and the House of David
must still be ruling over Israel.
Many of the higher critics of the Bible, from Tom Paine to
Bob Ingersoll, have challenged the orthodox defenders of the
Bible to show them where and how this Davidic Covenant has been
fulfilled, but orthodox theology has never been able to show
where, except in heaven. Yet the Covenant reads: "If his children
forsake my law, and walk not in my judgment ... Then will I visit
their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with
stripes." This cannot be applied to Jesus Christ, who was perfect
and who died for our transgressions; and I don't think it can
apply to those who are in heaven. It can only apply to David's
literal sons throughout the ages.
"And the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith
the Lord; if ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant
of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their
season; then may also my covenant be broken with David my
servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne;
and with the Levites the priests, my ministers. As the host of
heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured:
so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites
that minister unto me. Moreover the word of the Lord came to
Jeremiah, saying, Considerest thou not what this people have
spoken, saying, The two families which the Lord bath chosen, he
hath even cast them off, thus they have despised my people, that
they should be no more a nation before them. Thus saith the Lord;
if my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not
appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; then will I cast
away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not
take any of his seed to the rulers over the seed of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and
have mercy on them."--Jeremiah 33:19-26.
What about it, earnest Bible students? If you really believe
that Jehovah uttered these solemn words, then it is your sacred
duty to prove to an unbelieving world of sceptics and agnostics
where, when, and how, those words have been fulfilled.
The answer is given in 2 Samuel 7 8-116:
"Now therefore so shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus
saith the Lord of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from
following the sheep to be ruler over my people, over Israel: and
I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all
thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name,
like unto the name of the great men that are in the earth.
Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will
plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move
no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them
any more, as beforetime. And as since the time that I commanded
judges to be over my people Israel, and have caused thee to rest
from all thine enemies. Also the Lord telleth thee that he will
make thee an house. And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou
shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee,
which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish the
throne of his kingdom for ever. I will be his father, and he
shall be my son. If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him with
the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men: but
my mercy shall not depart away from him, as I took it from Saul,
whom I put away before thee. And thine house and thy kingdom
shall be established forever."
We have already seen that the 'appointed place' was in the
Covenant Land - 'Brith-ain' - in the Isles of the West. And it
was there, we shall find, that the throne of David was
established a few years after it was thrown down in Jerusalem.
"The King is dead, long live the King." "The King never dies, he
only demises the throne." These slogans are as old as history and
even older; they go back to Adam and his dynasty, which ruled for
nine hundred and thirty years (Genesis 5:5), or thirty-one
Golden Cycles of thirty Solar years each. At the end of each
Cycle the dynasty was renewed at the shrine of the Deity. These
cycles of Renewal Mr.Davidson has explained and demonstrated in
Pharagraphs 35 and 38 of his book, "The Great Pyramid," and also
has shown their application in Egyptian history in his work,
"Early Egypt and Babylonia." These 30 year cycles also form the
basis of the 2520-year cycles of Prophecy, as 84 times 30 equals
2520, and are fully explained in my "Seven Times of Prophecy."
The first Egyptian Dynasties, whose kings were Aryans, instituted
a series of Renewal or Sed Festivals that had their origin in 622
A.K. (3378 B.C.), which was the year of Enoch's birth. (That is
not so but here is not the time to go into Bible chronology -
Keith Hunt). To the Egyptians their kings were the heaven born
sons of God, who could never die, for they considered that the
king sat on the throne of God until the Messiah should come.
Rameses II, who was the Pharaoh of the Oppression and who knew
perfectly well that the Israelites in his land were the carriers
of the Messianic promises, declared that the Egyptians were the
Messianic carriers and that the Messsiah had come in the shape of
In Chapter VI we have traced the Messianic promises back to
the early Aryans by means of their crosses. The legend of the Phoenix
is the story of the translation of Enoch. On Egyptian temples the
Phoenix is portrayed as an oval (rising) sun with long,
outstretched wings. Prof. Waddell in his book, "Phoenician
Origins," Page 248, shows a Hittite Sumerian seal picturing a
Phoenix with a Cross in the Sun. St. Clements of Alexandria tells
us that the Phoenix is the symbol of the coming Resurrection and
of the Messiah (Refer to Phoenix on title page); and in the
language of Malachi 4:2 we read of the returning Messiah as "the
Sun of Righteousness with healing in His wings."
All the kingdoms of the ancient world held their kings to be
the incarnation of the Deity. Concering this ancient belief and
its meaning Prof.S.H.Buchanan in his "The World and the Book"
writes on Pages 364-65: "Kingly priests, after the order of
Melchizedek, standing in a line that hold the hope of a Divine
incarnation have held universal sway over the human races.
Montezuma and Mikado, the Sun-God of the mound-builders, and the
Pharaohs; the royal lines of Peru and Central America, Brahma and
Chisnu of India, as well as its Buddha, are all the outcome of
the faith that looked for the Divine One. Men universally have
made of this Divine One just what Christ's disciples wished to
make of Him. The conquests of Mexico and Peru by the Spanish were
made by the assassination of the royal families holding this
hope. This done, the hope of reconstruction departed. The chief
difference between the mound-builders and other Indians was the
result of the destruction of their royal lines. Whenever this was
done they became nomadic and hunters, and fell back upon an
altarless, intangible worship of the sun as the Great Spirit, and
faded away ... Fully fourfifths of the flags and coins of the
nations of the world show traces of origin from the patriarchal
If, then, all the ancients, whose kings were mostly Aryans,
believed their rulers to be the Vicars of the Messiah until His
return, is it not only natural that a son of David should sit
upon the Throne of Jehovah, as David and Solomon did, until "He
come whose right it is." According to the promises quoted, the
Throne would never be left vacant, for, according to Luke 1:32,
"the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of his father
David." God has promised that the Throne shall be there when He
comes, so it must be somewhere. The faith of faithful Bible
students does not seem to be strong enough to believe that
David's Throne must be somewhere else, after it was overturned in
Jerusalem in 584 B.C. and they also appear to have overlooked
the prophecy in Ezekiel 21:25-27, which prophesied that the
Throne would be overturned: "And thou, profane wicked prince of
Israel, whose day us come, when iniquity shall have an end, Thus
saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown:
this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low, and abase him
that is high. I will overturn, overturn, overturn it: and it
shall be no more until he come whose right it is; and I will give
Jeremiah the prophet had warned Zedekiah, his own relative,
of the coming judgment (refer to Chapters 36-39 of Jeremiah), but
his warnings were not heeded. To get rid of such a pessimist the
prophet was thrown into a filthy pit; and he was only set free by
the command of Nebuchadnezzar after Zedekiah's capture. The
captain of the guard even invited him to come with them to
Babylon, but Jeremiah's mission lay in another direction, to
replant the seed of David in another land. Although Zedekiah's
sons were slain the diadem and the scepter were overturned into
the female line, Zedekiah's daughters, and these Jeremiah took to
Tahpanhes in Egypt, accompanied by Baruch the scribe, as told in
the 34rd chapter of Jeremiah.
Let us now turn to the riddle that the prophet Ezekiel
presents in his seventeenth chapter. Thus saith the Lord God; A
great eagle with great wings, long winged, full of feathers,
which had divers colors, came unto Lebanon, and took the highest
branch of the cedar: he cropped off the top of his young twigs,
and carried it into a land of traffick; he set it in a city of
merchants. He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it
in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as
a willow tree. And it grew, and became a spreading vine of low
stature, whose branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof
were under him so it became a vine, and brought forth branches,
and shot forth sprigs."
The word eagle is, no doubt, used to represent a means of
transportation, for "it came" and "took" and "carried" something
into another land. That something was "his young twigs" (young
members) of the "highest branch of the cedar of Lebanon" (symbols
of the royalty of Palestine). Also the "seed of the land" (the
people of Israel) was placed in another land "by the great
waters" (not the Mediterranean), "was planted in a fruitful
field," "set it as a willow tree." No other tree will take root
as easily and quickly as a willow. It increased and became a
vine, this vine of "low stature," and turned its branches "toward
him." This "him" must necessarily be above the branches, i. e.,
be acknowledged as a ruler; but the inference is that this ruler
is also not very high, i.e., low, because the vine is of low
stature. This personage referred to as "him" is the low one to
whom the diadem was to be turned over. Previously, we have
related the wanderings of many of the people of Israel to Ireland
"by the great waters."
Quoting the seventh and eighth verses we continue the
"There was also another great eagle with great wings and many
feathers; and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him,
and shot forth her branches toward him, that he might water it by
the furrows of her plantation. It was planted in a good soil by
great waters, that it might bring forth branches and that it
might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly vine."
"Another great eagle" means a different means of
transportation than the one before used. And this vine bent "her"
roots toward "him," that is, a female twig joining a male twig, by
the furrows of her plan tation. This last phrase helps us greatly
to identify the place by the "great waters," where the replanting
was to take place - in Ulster, Ireland; for in olden time, Ulster
is spoken of as the "plantation of Ulster."
"I the Lord have brought down the high tree, have exalted the low
tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to
flourish: I the Lord have spoken and have done it." - Ezekiel 17:
For further elucidation of this subject the reader is
referred to the J.H.Allen's book "Judah's Septer and Joseph's
Birthright, and J.D.Massey's interesting work, "Tamar Tephi."
As Scripture tells us that Jeremiah took the king's
daughters into Egypt and we loose sight them there; by analogy we
apply Ezekiel's riddle of the tender twig to the transplanting of
the royal line into Ulster, and, therefore, let us take up the
thread from there, and follow it.
Irish historians are unanimous that about 580 B.C. there
arrived in Ulster a notable man, a patriarch or saint,
accompanied by an Eastern princess, and a lesser person by the
name of Simon Brach, or Barech. This party brought with them
several remarkable things about which Ireland's songs and legends
cluster; those things were a harp (David's harp), and a wonderful
stone - the Stone of Destiny - the Lia Phail. According to many
traditions, Jeremiah took the princesses to Spain, where one of
them married a prince of Zaragossa. With the other princess he
arrived in Ulster some time later. Irish tradition tells us that
Jeremiah married the princess Tamar Tephi to Eochaidh, the
Heremon, or head king of Ireland, after the latter had embraced
the worship of the true Jehovah.
Jeremiah became the chief figure in Irish history, life and
religion. He became the patriarch of Ireland, and is the original
"St.Patrick." The latter was, as is well known, not an Irishman
at all, but an early missionary to Ireland, who was interpolated
by the Roman Church to take the place of the original saint -
patriarch of Ireland, for reasons of their own. In Simon Barech
who accompanied them we recognize Baruch the scribe, of
For twenty-five centuries Irish songs and ballads have
lauded the princess who came with Jeremiah, Tamar Tephi, meaning
"Tamar the princess." She is also spoken of as Tea Tephi. Irish
historians call her the king's daughter or the daughter of
Pharaoh (Pharaoh meaning royal house). Tamar, we will recall, was
also the name of her ancestor, the mother of Zarah and Pharez.
Her name and her story, as well as that of the Patriarch of
Ireland, are so interwoven with Irish folklore, traditions, and
history that it is difficult for critical highbrows to eradicate
The Hebrew-Phoenician words connected with Tamar Tephi,
Jeremiah, and Tara alone provide a powerful evidence of their
Hebrew origin. Jeremiah is known in Irish tradition as the 0llam
Fodhla or Fola. Ollam denotes in Hebrew the possession of "hidden
knowledge." Fola in Hebrew is "wonderful" or in Celtic
"revealer," the two together describing a Hebrew prophet.
Jeremiah, the Ollam Fola, demanded from the Heremon, the
king, a renunciation of the Bel and serpent worship practiced in
Ireland and an acceptance of the Mosaic law and the worship of
Jehovah before he gave his charge, the princess Tamar, to the
king for a wife. From this eradication of the serpent worship
appears to have grown the legend that the Patriarch, St.Patrick,
drove the snakes out of Ireland. At Cathair Crofin, the royal
residence, Jeremiah established a school or college, known in
Irish history as the Mur-Ollamain or "school of wisdom," and the
name of Cathair Crofin was changed to Tara, which word is derived
from the Hebrew-Phoenician Torah, meaning "the Law." In the
succeeding centuries Tara became a famous seat of learning, not
only for Ireland but also for western Europe. It is of this
center that Thomas Moore wrote:
"The harp that once through Tara's halls
The soul of music shed,
Now hangs as mute on Tara's walls
As if that soul were fled.
So sleep the pride of former days,
So glory's thrill is o'er,
And hearts that once beat high for praise
Now feel that pulse no more!"
For over two thousand years the only national emblem that
Ireland had was the harp of Tara with its angel guardian. That
emblem was seen floating from her castles and was stamped upon
her shields and coins, and is seen upon the stamps of the new
For documentary proofs concerning the role that Tamar or Tea
Tephi and Jeremiah played in Irish lore, the reader is referred
to the Milner's excellent work, "The Royal House of Britain,"
which also contains an exhaustive Chronological Chart of the
Royal house of Judah Zarah and Judah Pharez, tracing the descent
of many noble houses from that line.
The princess Tephi is said to be buried in a burial mound,
the Great Mergesh, on the Hill of Tara. (See Plate XXIII.)
Several attempts have been made by archeologists to enter that
mound, but every attempt has been frustrated by the neighboring
Irish peasantry with guns and pitchforks. That mound is sacred to
the Irish people, but some day soon it will be opened, and
speculation is rife as to what it will contain. In the historic
Four Courts of Dublin hangs, in companionship with Moses, a
medallion portrait of the great Irish legislator, identified by
the F.R.A.Glover with Jeremiah (Shown on Plate XXIV).
Jeremiah himself is said to be buried near the ruins of
Devenish Abbey on the Isle of Devenish in Lower Lough Erne, near
Inniskillen, County Fermanagh. Tamar Tephi's marriage to
Eochaidh, the head king of Ireland, accomplished the
transplanting of the Royal line of Judah, Pharez, David from him
that is high of Ezekiel's riddle to him that is low; for Eochaidh
himself was of the line of Judah Zarah as a descendant of the
Milesian prince Gallam, who, at the head of the Gadelos, overcame
the Danaans about 700 B.C. Prof. Totten of Yale in his "Irish
Genealogies" traces Gallam's descent to Calcol, brother of Darda
and son of Zarah. Prof.Totten says: "The term Milesian is derived
from the mediaeval title of Gallam, the conqueror of Ireland, who
was called Milesius, or the Milesian, i.e., the soldier, a term
derived from the Latin 'miles,' whence we derive our word
In Chapter X it has been explained that Gallam and Gadelos
are derived from the Hebrew-Phoenician gadil, meaning "to become
great," in the plural "the exalted," "fortunate ones," or
"fortune seekers." Thus the Hebrew roots indicate that these
people, the people of Gadelius, were the exalted ones who were
low at first but who were to inherit the diadem of David after it
was taken from Zedekiah.
It was around the hand of Zarah, meaning "the seed," that
the midwife tied the Scarlet Thread, and Prof. Totten tells us
that in Milesian records of Old Ireland the sons of Gadelius or
Gallam call themselves the Curaithe na Cruabh ruadh, meaning "the
Knights of the Red Branch." Some of my readers who are of
Scotch-Irish descent will find in Fairbairn's Crests of the
Leading Families of Great Britain and Ireland several crests
picturing a forearm, which stands for the "Red Hand" of Ulster
and indicates that their ancestors belonged to the "Knights of
the Red Branch."
When Princess Tamar of the line of Judah-Pharez, "the
breach," married Eochaidh the Prince of the Scarlet Thread, the
high tree of Ezekiel's riddle had united with the low tree, and
the two branches of Judah, Pharez and Zarah, were reunited; but
we must always bear in mind that it was of the line of Pharez,
"the breach," the Messiah came, to heal "the breach."
"Furthermore, these Knights of the Red Branch, of whom Gallam,
the conquering Milesian, was one, called themselves Craunnogs, or
'the crowned.' The true meaning of their name is 'tree tops,'
for it comes from words common to all dialects: craun 'a tree,'
and og 'a tuft' or 'termination.' We use the same word for a
'crown,' as they did, and the very use of it in common language
would be enough to verify this identity of race were there not
other reasons in their history and legends to establish it
conclusively." - Totten.
The memory of that Scarlet Thread is still kept alive in
Britain, although unwittingly; every one of the British official
papers is wrapped with a red cord. Likewise; a red thread runs
through every rope in the British Navy, and we still talk about
From this union of Tamar Tephi with Eochaidh the Heremon of
Ireland at Tara sprang that long line of Irish Ardaghs or
overlords, who for one thousand years were crowned upon the Stone
of Israel and wielded the Scepter of Judah over the whole of
Ireland. The last of those Ardaghs was Murtough, who, dying
without male issue, left his daughter Earca, who married
Muiradhach, king of Abilene (Dublin). This was the second
transfer through a female. These people of western and northern
Ireland called themselves Scots, as Bede in his "Ecclesiastical
History" records, and western Ireland was then called Scotland.
About this time, the fifth century, the Pictish clans of
Caledonia had weakened themselves by inter-tribal warfare and the
west coast offered opportunity for invasion. Fergus MacEarca, son
of the Princess Earca, headed an armada across the Irish Sea and
landed on the Mull of Kintyre or Kintraw, which word is derived
from the Hebrew Kenaz, "nest," and Tur, "rock." After much
stubborn fighting he occupied the whole of Kintyre and founded
the kingdom of Argyle, derived from the Hebrew Ard, "leader," and
Giloh, "he that overturns." Fergus also occupied the southern
Hebrides (from Heber), including the Hi or Island of Iona, on
which there was already at this time a Cathedral and a
congregation Here Fergus was crowned king on the Stone of Destiny
in 498 A.D. During the reign of Aidan (548-604), the fourth king
of Argyle, St.Columba came to the island of Iona and founded a
famous school of missionaries. It was here that the Presbyterian
Church of Scotland was founded.
The fifteenth king of Argyle, Kenneth MacAlpin (836-854),
married the heiress of the Pictish throne of Scotland and became
the first king of Scotland. His descendant, the seventh, Malcolm
II was murdered in Glamis Castle, leaving only his daughter
Beatrix to carry on the royal line of Judah. She married Crinan
the Thane of Albanach. Thus the Scepter of Judah was transferred
for the third time. Seven kings of the house of Albanach ruled
over Scotland. As the last one died without issue, the two
daughters of David, Earl of Huntingdon, carried on the line of
PLATE XXIV. Medaillion Portrait of Jeremiah in the historic Four
Courts in Dublin.
Margaret married Alan, Lord of Galloway, and founded the
house of Baliol. Isabel married Robert Bruce, Lord of Annandale,
and founded the house of Bruce. This was the fourth transference
of the Scepter of Judah. (Many readers of Scotch descent can
trace their genealogy to these ancient houses and through them to
the royal line of David.)
The fifth transfer took place when Margaret Bruce married
Walter the Steward of Scotland and thus founded the house of
When James IV of Scotland, son of Mary by Lord Darnley,
became James I of England, the Scepter of Judah ruled over the
United Kingdom of England, Scotland, and Wales; and all the
various divisions of Israel, the Celts, the Saxons, the Angles,
and the Jutes had been blended into one nation.
The Stewart reign came to an end. The house of Orange ruled
only for a short time, but the Scepter of Judah was transferred
again, for the sixth time, when Princess Sophia, daughter of
James I married Ernest of Guelph, Duke of Brunswick, who was the
line of Judah/Zarah-Odin, as spoken of in the previous chapter.
(See "Chronological Chart" by Milner.) The son of the two was
George I of England. The Scepter remained in the house of Guelph
until Queen Victoria and then passed into the house of
Saxe-Coburg with Edward VII, son of Prince Albert and Queen
Victoria. This was the Seventh transfer.
The next and final transfer will be when King George or
Prince David hands it back to "Him whose right it is," and that
will be very soon. (We see here how people have hoped that the
return of the Messiah Christ would be in their life time.
Obviously the desire and wish of this author was not to be, and
we still in 2010 wait His return - Keith Hunt). This will be the
eighth transfer; eight is the number of Christ, marking a new
beginning. Concerning the significance of the number eight
refer to "The Sevcn Times of Prophecy," Page 81 (Again the errors
of man when he tries to put "numbers" or what man thinks is lined
up with the Second coming of Christ. The author of this book, I'm
sure on his death bed, knew the events did not match actuality.
It is the folly of men to depart from watching the signs Jesus
told us to watch concerning His soon coming, and get into
numbers, and chronology, and all kinds of other ideas, to try and
fix the coming of the Lord. They have all ended up with egg on
their face - Keith Hunt)
The Scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from
between his feet, "until Shiloh come" was the Prophecy; and it
has been fulfilled to the letter. Almost all the noble Houses of
Europe have lost their scepters and they are wondering why. The
British Throne is yet standing. In this connection it is
interesting to recall the remark of King Edward, which he made
thirty years ago at Cannes to Grand Duke Alexander of Russia, as
told by the latter in his book, "The Twilight of Royalty."
Pointing to the present Prince of Wales, who was then only a
child, King Edward said to the Grand Duke: "There is the last
king of England."
(How foolish can be the mind of man. Once more the face is
smushed with egg. When people take their eyes off the signs Jesus
gave in Matthew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; and put in their own ideas
of the "last times" and Jesus' coming - egg splattered all over
the face with be the sure result - Keith Hunt)
The J.H.Allen's book " Judah's Scepter and Joseph's
Birthright" gives an appendix which he traces the geneology of
the British sovereigns in an unbroken line. This list was
compiled some twenty years ago and ended with King Edward VII.
The authors of that list were wholly oblivious to any
significance of numbers; yet it reveals some numerical units that
are most startling to students of Prophecy.
30 Thirty generations from Adam to Obed, father of Jesse.
31 Jesse, with whom begins the royal line.
49 Eighteen kings in Palestine. (Note the 49, 7 times 7.)
50 Tea Tephi, the 50th (the Jubilee number).
103 Fifty-three kings of Ireland from Eochaidh to Earca (makes
103, an intercallery cycle).
116 Thirteen kings of Argyleshire, from Fergus.
141 Twenty-five sovereigns of Scotland, from Kenneth 11 to Mary.
151 Ten sovereigns of England, from James I to Edward VII.
152 To the above list we now add the name of the present King
153 We have reached the climax of these numbers if we add to the
foregoing Prince David of Wales. His number is the mysterious
number, 153, the number of the elect.
(Refer to "The Great Pyramid's Message to America," Page 28, 2nd
Edition.) In this connection it is striking to note that the
Prince of Wales has so far refused to marry. Will he be the last
king of England?
(Weeeelllll.....we now know the above all meant nothing as far as
the signs of the times to the return of the Messiah Christ. How
many times, in the last 150 years and more, have men put forth
figures of this and that to advocate Jesus is coming in this
decade or in this person's life. The Protestant fundamentalist
prophets were busy doing it in the 1980s; writing aricles and
books as to why Jesus would be back before 1990 was here. Some
are still at it today, date setting, because of this set of
numbers or that set of chronology. You would think they would
have learned from the mistakes of others over the last 150 years,
but they seem to be blinded to the past; maybe they do it because
people want them to do it, so they preach what people want to
hear, but chickens keep producing eggs to smash on all their
faces - Keith Hunt)
Probably the most treasured possession of the Court of
St.James (St.Jacob's) is the Coronation Stone in Westminster
Abbey. (see Plate XXV). All of Britains's princes and princesses,
who have reigned in Ireland, Scotland, or England from Tephi to
Queen Victoria and since, have been crowned upon that stone. This
is British history and not fiction.
PLATE XXV (not shown - Keith Hunt)
CORONATION CHAIR AND STONE OF DESTINY, WESTMINSTER ABBEY
The stone lies beneath the seat of the Coronation Chair; it
is of oblong shape, about twenty-six inches in length, sixteen
inches broad, and eleven inches high. It is a dull reddish
sandstone; there are none others like it in Britain. Geologists
tell us that it belongs to a sandstone formation near the Dead
Sea. On each side of it are two iron rings throug which poles
were passed to carry it. This stone has been resting in
Westminster Abbey since 1298 A.D., when Edward I brought it from
the Abbey of Scone. Before that it lay in the church of Iona,
where Fergus the Great was crowned upon it in 498 A.D. after he
had inherited the stone from his mother Earca, whose ancestors
kept it in the royal hall of Tara for a thousand years. Yet its
rings are worn down by years of carrying.
An old Irish rune refers to that stone and was put into the
following words by Sir Walter Scott:
"Unless the fates are faithless grown.
And prophet's voice be vain,
Wher'er is found this sacred stone,
The Wanderer's Race shall reign."
Edward 1 called it a "precious relic." This Stone of Destiny
is said to be Jacob's stone, upon which he laid his head on the
plains of Luz. It is the stone of Israel - the "rock" that was
carried in the wilderness .... Sometimes it is spoken of in the
Old Testament as the "pillar" upon which Israel's kings were
crowned. "And God went up from him in the place where he talked
with him. And Jacob set up a pillar in the place where he talked
with him, even a pillar of stone: and he poured a drink offering
thereon, and he poured oil thereon. And Jacob called the name of
the place where God spake with him, Beth-el." - Genesis 35:
13-15. That rock, Bethel, the Lord's house, is in the Lord's
house today, i.e., in Westminster Abbey ...
When Tea Tephi brought with her that symbol into the Isles
of the West, the diadem was overturned for the first time. When
her descendant, the Irish Princess Earca, passed it to her son
Fergus, king of Argyleshire, that symbol went to Scotland, and
the diadem was turned over for the second time. And for the third
time into England, when the son of Mary Queen of Scots became
James the First of England. It was this third turnover that gave
us the English Bible.
Truly God has kept His Word. He promised David that there
should never lack a man to sit upon the throne of David. He has
overturned that Throne three times, as we have seen; and it is
still in existence today, waiting for Shiloh to come. "And the
Lord shall give unto Him the throne of His father David. And he
shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His Dominion
there shall be no end." Shiloh means "rest giver," and Shiloh
alone can give us rest and deliver us from the present chaos.
"Unto Him shall the gathering of the people be," as Jacob said.
Nothing but His wisdom and power can restore order out of
the weltering chaos of human factions.....
Then "Out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of
the Lord from Jerusalem." - Isaiah 2: 3.
No amount of unbelief can hold up God's plans, and our
people who have been led stray by their teachers and shepherds
are earnestly advised to study God's plans for themselves, as
found in His Book and now corroborated by the monuments. How much
longer must our people suffer before they trun to the Bible for
guidance instead of to the wisdom and beliefs of men?
My answer to the authors last question: Until all that is written
in the prophets be fulfilled; then Jesus will come and bring in
the RESTITUTION of all things.
In a space-age world, we still have a somewhat strange
institution (that many would like to see abandoned and torn down)
in full swing, I speak of the British Royal Throne. There has
never been such the like in all the history of mankind. It is a
throne that STILL holds MANY nations together in a family of
nations. If in doubt just watch the "Commonwealth Games" when it
comes around. The British throne will never DIE! It will remain
to the end of this age; kings and/or queens will still take their
place on this throne as long as the sun and moon endure, to the
coming of the Messiah, who will rightly sit on that Throne of
David in Jerusalem, for one thousand years. Yes, He will sit on
that Throne of David that was promised to Him in the plan of God,
thousands of years ago.
While thrones of various nations fall and become obsolete, while
kingdoms rise and kingdoms fall, all around the earth, ONE THRONE
remains untouched by world events. It cannot just be
happenstance; it cannot just be "luck" or whatever other mundane
word you want to give it, that first in Ireland, then in
Scotland, then finally in England, for two and a half thousand
years kings/queens have been coronated while sitting on or
standing by a stone block.
Surely this somewhat strange fact of the British Throne is one
proof that God's Word is inspired, and one proof that God DOES
EXIST, and that what He has declared has come to pass, nay, is
still coming to pass, and will come to pass.
You live in exciting times! You are living in a time when all
things that are written in the prophets, are taking shape to move
this world into the very last 42 months of this age. Then as
promised, Jesus Christ will return in power and glory to sit upon
the Throne of David, and to rule the earth for a thousand years.
Lord, may Thy Kingdom come, and may Thy will be done on earth as
it is in heaven!
