( Three Overturns)
There is another interesting prophecy in Ezekiel 21:25-27, and it says, "And thou, profane wicked prince [ruler] of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end, " Thus saith YHWH 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 it him"
Let's understand this clearly. "Remove the diadem, and take off the crown." King Zedekiah of David's dynasty, had the crown. It was to be removed. He died in Babylon. So were his sons and the nobles of Judah.
"This shall not be the same." The crown was not to cease, but a CHANGE is to take place-the throne was to be overturned-another is to wear the crown.
"Exalt him [male not a female] that is low, and abase him that is high." Who is "high?" King Zedekiah of Judah. He was to be abased, and loose the crown. Who is the "low?" THE ZARAH-JUDAH LINE! The line of Zarah was low for many centuries, now they will be exalted to world domination, just like David's line was at the golden age of Israel, or as the historians call it, the golden age of Phoenicia.
"I will overturn, overturn, overturn it: and it shall be no more [overturned], until he who comes whose right it is; and I will give it to him." The rendering of this is correct as J.H. Allen in his book Judah' Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright puts it: "So it shall be no more OVERTURNED. How could God give "IT" MEANING THE THRONE "TO HIM" IF THE THRONE WAS NON-EXISTENT? So the context of scripture is correct. "IT shall be no more [overturned]. The one who has the right to the throne AFTER THE THREE OVERTURNS is none other than Jesus Christ, see Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32.
Now these three distict overturns were prophesied to Happen!
The First Overturn and the Annals of Ireland
As we have read, Scota, the daughter of Zedekiah and Nuil the Milesian prince of the Zarah-Judah line, married at Egypt. What happened after that? These Milesians went back up to Ireland.
"How then did the Milesians come to Ireland?...
"With the assasination of Hophra[ Pharaoh of Egypt], Tahpanhes was evacuated and Nebuchadnezzar...came and set up his camp...Some of the Milesians who had supported Hophra now migrated westwards to Spain and then to Ireland. With them...were Nuil and Scota, FOUNDERS OF THE IRISH DYNASTY OF KINGS...[and this fact] IS ESTABLISHED VIRTUALLY BEYOND REFUTE" (Britain's Royal Throne, Williams, pp.67-68, emphasis mine). So here we see the first overturn of the Bible, from Jerusalem to Ireland!
THE VOYAGE OF THE TRAVELLING TRUSTEE R.A. Glover: Ollam Fodhla - pronounced Ollav Fola - is a man well-known of, though not accurately known in, Irish tradition, as a great Monarch, Sage, and Lawgiver. He is mentioned thus in the Annals of the Four Masters, p. 412:-
"Amongst the most celebrated kings of Ulster, who also reigned as monarchs of Ireland, was Ollamh Fodhla, or Ollav Fola, the famous legislator, whose reign is placed by Tigernach, O'Flaherty, and others about seven centuries before the Christian era. He founded, the Conventions of Tara."
This is that Eocaid-Ollambh-Fodhla-Heremon-Ardrigh (Each'd=Historian, Ollam=Prophet, Fola=Destiny or Learned, Heremon=King, Ardrigh=Head-King [Pentarch] [JML: ruler over 5 kings]) of Tara, of whom the Chronicles of Eri make such ample and honorable mention (Chronicles of Eri, vol ii pp.70, 85,91,116).
"The Chronicles of Eri, The annals of the Four Masters, [all record]...Scota [who] was one of the earliest names of Ireland...from Scota, the 'daughter of Pharaoh' one of the ancient female ancestors of the Milesians...and from the union [Marriage] the Kings of Tara were descended...Many of the ancient Irish records, when making reference to the 'eastern Kings daughter,' also mention an OLD MAN, a 'PATRIARH, A SAINT, A PROPHET,' called Ollam Fodhla, and his scribe and companion Simon Brug, Brach, Breack, Barech, Berach, as it is variously spelled" (Jacob's Pillar Stone, Capt, pp.30-31).
Cairn T, at Loughcrew, nr. Oldcastle, Royal Meath in Ireland is the Tomb of Jeremiah the Bible Prophet
The proof of the fact, that this cairn is the tomb of Jeremiah, is "written in stone" in hieroglyphics, on the stones within the cairn itself.
Who was the "old man" and the person called "Simon Brug?" Who else could it be but Jeremiah and 'Baruch." And the 'eastern Kings' daughter" is of course Scota. The annals of the kingdom of Ireland [also] states that "Archeaological excavations on the mound of Tara have also revealed that ancient Tara was ...the royal seat...of Celtic kings that came from SPAIN" (ibid, pp.31, 35, emphasis mine). Tara was the capital and the place where the kings were coronated.
The "Hill of Tara" had five names. The first was Druim Decsuin, or thehe Conspicuous Hill; the second was Liath Druim, or Liath's Hill from a Firbolg chief of that name who was the first to clear it of wood; the third was Druim Cain, or the Beautiful Hill; the fourth was Cathair Crofinn; and the fifth name was Teamair (now Anglicised Tara, from the genitive case Teambrach of thee word), a name which it got from being the burial place of Tï¿½a, the wife of Eremon, the son of Milesius." from Manners and Customs of the Ancient Irish, by Eugene O'Curry, Dublin, 1873.
The Second and Third Overturns
About 500 A.D. some immigrants led by Fergus Mor Mc Erc (the Great), from the Irish Gaelic Kingdom of Dalriada, invaded the western coasts of Scotland, the land of the Picts. In George Buchanan's History of Scotland, we read where Fergus of Ireland, after invading Scotland and returning home (to Ireland) [was] victorious: "...the Scots confirmed the kingdom (Scottish Dalriada) to him and his posterity by an oath" (vol.1, p.160).
Who was Fergus the Great? "...after Fergus the Great, son of Earc, had obtained power of Scotland [made himself] King of Scotland, he send information into the presence of his brother, son of Earc, of the RACE OF EIREMHON, who was KING OF IRELAND...[Fergus] proclaimed [himself] King of Scotland...and he was the fisrt king of Scotland [and] of the Scottish nation" (Dr. Geofferey Keating, Forus Feasa ar Erim-Vol.1, p.207, emphasis mine). Eiremhon whom Fergus and his brother were descended was the son of SCOTA, HEREMON, see Jacob's Pillar, by Capt, pp.42, 91. This is the SECOND OVERTURN OF THE DAVIDIC THRONE!
3rd Overturn: The Third Overturn, when the "Kings of Scotland became the Kings of ENGLAND IN 1603...In A.D. 506 Fergus the Great, King of Ireland was crowned king of Scotland at Iona, and from him was descended James VI of Scotland who in 1603 became James I OF ENGLAND" (Britain's Royal Throne, Williams, pp.68-69, emphadid mine). And from James the I of England we come to Queen Elizabeth II, who sits on David's throne, and is established as ruler of the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, just as God promised in all the prophecies that we have read. Now the "low tree" of Zarah is finally elevated as "High," and the head of a world power called the British Commonwealth of Nations. And David's seed is established on that throne today! It is now the David-Zarah-Pharez-Judah Line on this throne!
Also fulfilled in Ezekiel's prophecy about the throne of David is the "...fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell." All the gentile people of this world have prospered under the rule of this Davidic throne. All people when they make one of the Commonwealth of nations their home, they experience freedom, prosperity, and safety, under their head of State, The ENGLISH DAVIDIC THRONE!
Jacob's Pillar Stone
Have you ever wondered why the Kings of Ireland, Scotland, and England were coronated on a rock? Where did this tradition come from? Where did the Rock come from? Believe it or not, this rock and tradition come from the Israelites of the Bible and from Jacob himself!
Let's look at the history of this rock as its given to us in the pages of the Bible!
"And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. " And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. "And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. "And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; " And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. " And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. " And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not. " And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. " And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it." (Gen 28:10-18).
Later Jacob visited Bethel again: "And God said unto him, Thy name is Jacob: thy name shall not be called any more Jacob, but Israel shall be thy name: and he called his name Israel. "And God said unto him, I am God Almighty: be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall be of thee, and kings shall come out of thy loins; " And the land which I gave Abraham and Isaac, to thee I will give it, and to thy seed after thee will I give the land. " 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, Bethel" (Gen 35:10-15). So Jacob's pillar stone was a testimony to the fact that God would perform all these promises to Jacob of a great COMPANY OF NATIONS and a SINGLE POWERFUL NATION, and a whole DYNASTY OF KINGS to be descended from him. Can we doubt that this stone that God stood on top of, as well as the angels, with all its sacred associations would be treasured and preserved by Jacob's descendants for a long time to come?
Even God reminded Jacob about the pillar stone saying: "I am the God of Bethel, where thou anointest the pillar, and where thou vowest a vow unto me..." (Gen 31:13).
There is biblical evidence to show that this stone was in the care of the Tribe of Joseph, and it was alotted to him. Jacob blessed each tribe and said to Joseph parenthetically: "...(from thence is the shepherd the STONE OF ISRAEL:)" (Gen 49:24).
"Thence from this instance is an adverb used as a noun, and is equivalent in value to "that place" or the place to which it refers. The phrase 'from thence' means 'out from here', 'out from hither', (or) 'out of that place.' The place...the stone came (Bethel) was a part of the inheritance of Joseph, when the land of Canaan was divided among the children of Jacob [Joshua 16:1]. This suggests that not only Bethel (city or place) but also Bethel, the PILLAR ROCK was given to the birthright family" (Jacob's Pillar, pp.6-7, emphasis mine).
Now we come to the Exodus. With the movements and the wanderings of Israel for 40 years. There is an intersting passage in Exodus 17. The people were thirsty for water and Moses cried to God for help and God said: "Go on before the people, and take with thee of the elders of Israel; and thy rod, wherewith thou smotest the river, take in thine hand, and go. "Behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel" (Ex 17:5-6).
Now some interesting points to this episode:
God told Moses to smite "the rock," not "a rock."
The Apostle Paul wrote of this episode and he said: "And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ" (1 Corith 10:4). He was comparing the spiritual rock, to the physical rock that 'FOLLOWED THEM." This was not some rock attached to some mouintain side. This rock was mobile going with them. And since Paul compared this rock with Christ then this rock had to be important. This rock was Jacob's Pillar stone.
Now when we get to the promise land we see that the kings of Judah were coronated by a pillar. "And all the men of Shechem gathered together, and all the house of Millo, and went, and made Abimelech king, by the plain of the pillar that was in Shechem." (Judges 9:6). The marginal translation says " by the oak of the pillar," showing very clearly that Abimelech was crowned king at the very spot where Joshua, "...took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of YHWH. "And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of YHWH which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God" (Joshua 24:26-27). Since Joshua said that the stone "hath heard all the words of YHWH which he spake unto us," what other stone could it be but Jacob's stone which he erected at Bethel and called the HOUSE OF GOD? It was a witness to the covenant that God made with his people, and with Jacob, and now Abimelech was crowned king king by this stone with all its sacred associations.
Moreover the kings of Israel continued to be crowned with this stone: "And he [Jehoiada the Priest] brought forth the king's son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king. "And when Athaliah heard the noise of the guard and of the people, she came to the people into the temple of YHWH. " And when she looked, behold, the king stood by a [THE] pillar, as the manner was, and the princes and the trumpeters by the king, and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets: and Athaliah rent her clothes, and cried, Treason, Treason" (2 Kings 11:12-14). There is a definite article in this passage, so it should read "THE Pillar," instaed of "a" pillar. So the kings of Israel were crowned with the pillar stone of Jacob. And they did it always in the Temple of God, which is the House of God, and Bethel, the stone was called the "House of God."
Here is another coronation ceremony in the days of Josiah, which is near the time of Jeremiah, when he was to begin his ministry 13 years after, see Jer 1:2.
"And the king sent, and they gathered unto him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem.
" And the king went up into the house of YHWH, and all the men of Judah and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the priests, and the prophets, and all the people, both small and great: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of the covenant which was found in the house of YHWH. "And the king stood by a [THE] pillar, and made a covenant before YHWH, to walk after YHWH, and to keep his commandments and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people stood to the covenant" (2 Kings 23:1-3). Now we know that Jeremiah knew about Jacob's Pillar stone and that the custom was still practiced in his day!
Now we come to Jeremiah, Scota, and Nuil. Is there any recorded history of the stone being brought from Jerusalem to Ireland?
The Annals of Ireland shows this to be true: "Many ancient Irish records...Reportedly, they [the saint who we know as Jeremiah and Scota] carried with them many ancient relics. Among these were a HARP, an ark or a chest, and a stone called, in Gaelic, 'LIA-FAIL' (pronounced Leeah-Fail), meaning 'Stone of Fate' or 'Hoary of Destiny''' (Jacob's Pillar, p.30, emphasis mine). Why is it that the stone is not listed among the treasures the king of Babylon took from the Temple?, see 2 Chron 36:17-18. Why is that you find "...IRON RINGS, the battered surface, the crack which has all but rent its solid mass usunder, bears witness to its LONG MIGRATIONS..." (Dean Stanley, Memorials of Westminister Abbey, 2nd Edn, p.66, emphasis mine). The iron rings is where the Israelites carried the throne in the wilderness when that rock 'followed' them.
The Celtic name of the stone now in the Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey is Lia Fail, "the speaking stone", which named the king who would be chosed. Cambray in his "Monuments Celtiques" claims to have seen the stone when it bore the inscription: Ni fallat fatum, Scoti quocumque locatum Invenient lapidiem, regnasse tenetur ibidem: If the Destiny prove true, then the Scots are known to have been Kings where'er men find this stone. A few miles up the river from Perth is the site of the historic Abbey of Scone, where the kings of Scotland were crowned. But the glory of Scone has long departed, for, even in the time of the writing of the old "Statistical Account"...."on the spot where our ancient kings were crowned there now grows a clump of trees." At Scone the Coronation Stone or Stone of Destiny was "reverently kept for the consecration of the kings of Alba" and, according to an old chronicler, "no king was ever wont to reign in Scotland unless he had first, on receiving the royal name, sat upon this stone at Scone, which by the kings of old had been appointed to the capital of Alba." The Stone of Destiny now in Westminster Abbey (at the time this was written), is an oblong block of RED SANDSTONE, some 26 inches long by 16 inches broad, and 10 1/2 inches deep: on the flat top of the stone are the marks of chiselling.
This shows from the rock itself that it was mobile. We also find that this rock"...was claimed by some...[that the] stone...[was] not to be found in Palestine, the OPPOSITE is the case. Recent excavations have shown that the same kind of sandstone exists in the locality of BETHEL..." (Williams, Britain's Royal Throne, p.74, emphasis mine).
Raymond Capt writes: "One of the most significant FACTS about the coronation stone is that no similar rock formation is to be FOUND IN THE BRITISH ISLES. Professor Totten...after making a thorough examination of the stone made the following statement: 'the analysis of the stone shows that there are absolutely no quarries in Scone or Iona...
Professor Odlum...discovered a stratum of sandstone near the RED SEA AT BETHEL, geologically the SAME AS THE CORONATION STONE..." (Jacob's Pillar, p.59, emphasis mine).
Why is it that "...the customs [of coronation]...unites the throne of England to the traditions of Tara and Iona" (Dean Stanley, Memorials of Westminister Abbey, 2nd Edn, p.66, emphasis mine). These kings of Ireland, Scotland, and England were all coronated on this rock, the same CUSTOM OF THE ISRAELITES. All these proofs show that Queen Elizabeth was coronated on top of JACOB'S PILLAR STONE!
There is also an old prophetic verse engraved on the stone, Walter Scott renders as Follows:
"Unless the fates are faithless grown,
"And the prophets' voice be vain,
Where ere is found the sacred stone,
"The wanderers race shall reign" (Judah's sceptre and Joseph's Birthright, p.253).
The Throne of the House of Israel
There is a certain prophecy that is almost totally ignored by all scholars and escatologists about the throne of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL! Jeremiah wrote that "...David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;" (Jer 33:17). Notice, it is not the "Throne of David," but the throne of the "House of Israel." Now if we turn back into the book of Kings, we see that after the split, David's descendants ruled over the House of Judah, and Jeroboam, and other kings ruled over the House of Israel., see 1 Kings 11-13. This was totally a SEPERATE THRONE FROM THE THRONE OF DAVID!
Now, as we have seen in our booklet USA and Britain In Prophecy, the Israelites were taken between the Black and the Caspian sea, and they were called Scythians, Cimmerians, and Parthians. Is there any proof that David ruled over these people before the throne of David in England eventually ruled over these people? The answer is an absolute yes!
There is an interesting scripture in the 2nd book of Kings and Jeremiah, and it says that: "And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, that Evilmerodach king of Babylon in the year that he began to reign did lift up the head of Jehoiachin king of Judah out of prison; "And he spake kindly to him, and set his throne above the throne of the kings that were with him in Babylon" ( 2 Kings 25:27-28) . See also Jeremiah 52:31-34.
The King of Babylon was supreme ruler over the empire, but he was served by many subordinate rulers, who were vassal kings over assigned areas. That a Babylonian king gave Jehoiachin a THRONE indicates that Jehoiachin was made a vassal ruler over part of the Babylonian empire. Indeed, the account says that he was set "above" the other vassal kings! Since there were many of the ten tribes subordinate to the Babylonian empire during that time (which Babylon inherited them after the fall of Assyria), it is most likely that Jehoiachin was made RULER OVER THE TEN TRIBED HOUSE OF ISRAEL! Since Jehoiachin was a descendant of David (of the Pharez line), his descendants apperantly established a dynasty which continued to rule "over the house of Israel," even when they regained their independence from Babylon. In 1 Chron 3:16-24 it records that the royal family of Judah did not die out, but produced many descendants during the generation after the fall of Jerusalem. There was no shortage of princes of David's house to place on thrones over the House of Israel. Since the Babylonian king made Jehoiachin a favored vassal king, he may have set his sons and relatives in positions of power: "Perhaps the Babylonians felt that the captive nations of the Assyrians (whom they inherited as subjects) would exhibit less rebelliousness if they were given their own HEREDITARY RULERS AS VASSAL KINGS...There are many Parthian Kings with the names containing the root word 'phares' (indicating David's Royal bloodline). From the eastern edge of Parthia's rule and influence to the western edge, Parthian kings regularly included the 'Phases' name. A Parthian king who ruled in the area of West India was named Gondophares, and several kings ruling over the Caucasus Mountains, the Kingdom of Iberia [Hebrew] were named Pharasmanes...many kings of Parthia itself had names indicating that they were also royal members of the Davidic line of Judah. Such names include the key consanants of PH-R-S in Hellenized form of their Parthian names (Phraates, Phraortes, and Phraataces are examples)..." (Steve Collins, Lost ten Tribes of Israel...Found, pp.213, 212, emphasis mine). History shows that Jehoiachin's seed ruled over the Parthians, who were of course the House of Israel. Remember, Jehoiachin's seed were no longer to prosper on DAVID'S THRONE IN JUDAH: "...for no man of his seed shall prosper, sitting upon the throne of David, and ruling anymore in Judah" (Jer 22:30). But in Parthia, it was the "throne of the HOUSE OF ISRAEL" (Jer 33:17)., which was seperate from the throne of David. This throne was the ten tribed House of Israel: "And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith YHWH, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee: "(But he shall have one tribe for my servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)
"And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there. " And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign [ISRAEL'S THRONE] according to all that thy soul desireth, and shalt be king over Israel" (2 Kings 11:31-32, 36-37). Jeroboam ruled on the throne of the House of Israel. David's seed ruled on David's throne over Judah and Benjamin. So Jehoiachin's seed inherited the throne of the house of Israel that was vacant. From Jeremiah's time until now that throne was occupied by a Davidic King.
After Parthia fell, the Parthians with their long line of Kings migrated up to Armenia: "The Armenian monarch, who had been set on his throne by Artabanus [Parthian king defeated by the Persians] and was an uncle to the Young princes [of Parthia], was especially anxious to maintain the Arsacids [royal family of Parthia] in power; he gave them refuge in Armenia" (Rawlinson's Sixth Oriental Monarchy, p.367, emphasis mine).
The Encyclopedia Britiannica adds: "The members of the Arsacid line who fell into the hands of the victor [the Persians] were put to death; a number of the princes [of Parthia] found refuge in Armenia; where the Arsacid dynasty maintained itself till A.D. 429" ("Persia," p.580, emphasis mine). These records document that the first reaction of the Parthian king was to take refuge in Armenia towards the Black Sea into Europe. The dynasty ruled untill 429 A.D.
During and after they stayed in Armenia there was a massive migration of the Parthians and Scythians into Europe in the third century A.D. and after: "Since it is an all well established fact that the Parthians and Scythians were related tribes, the 'Scythian' migration into Europe would have included masses of Parthian refugees (during the 3rd A.D. and afterward" (Collins, p.327). Did the Royal family go with them? "When Parthia fell, history records that the Arsacids fled northwest (towards Europe) along with the rest of the Parthian refugees. As the Parthian refugees dipersed into Europe, it is likely that they followed...dispersing the Arsacid bloodline throughout Europe. The centuries intermarriage among the rulers and nobility of Europes's Kingdoms would have resulted in the Arsacid bloodline being preserved in many of Europe's dynasties" (ibid, p.368, emphasis added). Here again we see the breach between the Zarah-Judah line and the line of David being healed. God also promised that he would "multiply the seed of David" (Jer 33:22). But these rulers never partook of the throne of David in England!
God promised David that he would have power all over the earth. David and his seed were to rule all nations. David ruled in the golden age of Israel/Phoenicia. But also his seed was to rule long after David died.
First God says about his power: "I will set his hand [authority] also in the sea..." (Psalm 89:25). Who can dispute the naval power of the British Empire in the 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries all under the rulership of the throne of England!
"And you, Tower of the Flock,-
"You fair maiden of Zion!-
"Produce you adornments, and come forth the QUEEN,
"The princess of Kingdoms, Jerusalem's daughter!"
(Micah 4:8 Ferrar Fenton Translation).
David's line was to rule all nations as God said: "and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. "As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me. " The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places.
"Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O YHWH, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. " Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and showeth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore" (Psalm 18:43-45, 49- 50). Not just to David, but to his seed forever!
The Curse of David's Line
Along with all the great blessings, there also came a curse for David as well, and for his seed. Because of the sin of David committed with Bathsheba, and with the murder of Uriah the Hittite, God said to David that: "Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of YHWH, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. "Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife" (2 Sam 12:9-10). The "sword" symbolises death by violence. And murder would be common among the descendants of David. We see this all through the Bible in the story of David and his children. But also this curse has also clung to "...the ruling house of Parthia, and the more brutal rulers killed many of their own relatives in order to eliminate rivals to the throne" (ibid, p.215). Many of the rulers that sat on the throne of England, had a very bloody history as well.
The Throne of David In Prophecy
What is prophesied to happen to the throne of England in the near future before Jesus Christ overturns that throne and brings it to Jerusalem once again. If we do not repent what will happen to the royal family?
Isaiah 22 gives us the answer, and it says this: "Thus saith YHWH GOD of hosts, Go, get thee unto this treasurer, even unto Shebna, which is over the house, and say, " What hast thou here? and whom hast thou here, that thou hast hewed thee out a sepulchre here, as he that heweth him out a sepulchre on high, and that graveth an habitation for himself in a rock? " Behold, YHWH will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. " He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. " And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down. " And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliakim the son of Hilkiah: " And I will clothe him with thy robe, and strengthen him with thy girdle, and I will commit thy government into his hand: and he shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah. " And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open. " And I will fasten him as a nail in a sure place; and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house. " And they shall hang upon him all the glory of his father's house, the offspring and the issue, all vessels of small quantity, from the vessels of cups, even to all the vessels of flagons. " In that day, saith YHWH of hosts, shall the nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall; and the burden that was upon it shall be cut off: for YHWH hath spoken it" (verses 15- 25).
Now what does this all mean?
First we must understand who the two characters in this prophecy are, and what their roles were in ANCIENT ISRAEL. This prophecy is dual in nature as we will see. Eliakim and Shebna were people in the past, and when we understand who they were, then we will understand what the END TIME SHEBNA AND ELIAKIM WILL DO IN THE FUTURE.
Shebna was an "officer second in rank to the king...during Hezekiah's illness (cf. 38:1ff). Shebna RAN THE GOVERNMENT and may have acted without CONSULTING THE KING IN SUCH MATTERS as construction of the tunnel...He may also have acted secretly trying to gain support in the rebellion against Assyria (wolf). His actions BETRAYED and absence of faith that was found in the king. Further he was guilty of EXTRAVAGANT LIVING AT A TIME WHEN THE NATION HAD BEEN IMPOVERISHED BY WAR" (JFB New Commentary on the Whole Bible, p.920, emphasis mine). Unger's Bible Handbook calls him, "the proud materialistic USURPER...to be thrusted out of office..." 9p.321, emphasis mine). Shebna was one who live a lifestyle so extravagant even in the times of trouble he rides around in "chariots of glory" (v.18).
Now God says that he will "pull down" Shebna from his "station" and "state" meaning his position in government. Then he will be violently tossed into a land with a "mighty captivity." (v.18).
Now (verse 20) we get to Eliakim. Eliakim will clothed with "thy [Shebna's] robe," and "girdle" meaning a royal robe. God will also "commit thy [Shebna's] government into his [Eliakim's] hand." and he shall be a "father to the inhabitant of Jerusalem."(v.21). Here we see Shebna in charge of the throne of David. For he is called a "Usurper." And a "Usurper' is one who ceases power of a government, see Oxford Dictionary.
Now in (verse 22) we see that this is an end time prophecy, and there is an end time Eliakim and Shebna: "And the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open." This statement is applied to Jesus Christ, see Rev 3:7. So this prophecy is talking about Jesus Christ the Messiah! Halley's Bible Handbook writes: " In the elevation of Eliakim to the office there maybe hints of MESSIANIC implication (22- 25)" (P.296, emphasis mine). See also Adam Clarkes Commentary, p.242. And what office is Jesus Christ going to inherit when he comes? The throne of David, Isaiah 9:6-7; Luke 1:32. So this office that Eliakim is going to inherit is the throne of David in this prophecy in Isaiah 22.
The "nail in a sure place" (v.23) is also found in Zechariah 10:4: "Out of him [Judah] came forth the corner, ["cornerstone" NIV, NASB] out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together." The cornerstone is Jesus Christ see 1Peter 2:6-7. The nail is also a symbol of "reliability and honor" (JFB Commentary, p.921).
"and he shall be for a glorious throne to his father's house." (v.23). Notice a "throne" for this end time Eliakim that he took from Shebna. This Eliakim who is Jesus Christ is going to inherit the throne of his father David. So this end time Shebna must be on the SAME throne, since Eliakim is to take his robe and government away from him (v.21).
"In that Day," (v.25) always means the end time, the second coming of Christ. The " nail that is fastened in the sure place be removed, and be cut down, and fall;." How can that be? The prophecies say that the increase of "his [Jesus] government" there shall be no end, Isaiah 9:6- 7. How do we reconcile these two statements? Dr. Bullinger's Companion Bible has the answer: [it] refers back to the day v.20 i.e. the day of SHEBNA'S OVERTHROW. This would be the day of Eliakim's exaltation" (p.958, emphasis mine).
Who is this end time Shebna who occupies the throne of David? Most likely it will be Prince Charles. This "usurper" will cease power in Parlaiment, and run the government in Britain, and he will rule once more because of the time of "trouble," the economic collapse of the world economy.
Prince Charles, when he is crowned a King, will betray the very throne that he will inherit, just like Shebna of the past. How? TO THE BEAST, who is prophesied to capture Israel, and throw them into a mighty captivity. But before that happens, the King of England will make an agreement with the Beast and hand over his throne to the beast power and become a vassal king to the beast. Then the "Assyrian [The Beast, see Germany in Prophecy for further Details] shall be his king" Thinking that he will save Britain and his throne, and to keep his lavish lifestyle. But then, when the Great tribulation happens to Britain, the throne will be "pulled down" (v.19, 25), as in Jeremiah's day. And our king will be put into captivity! And Ephraim, "shall eat unclean things in Assyria [the beast]" (Hosea 9:3; 10:6).
Here is another scripture that corroborates Isaiah 22. Here we find a prophecy about Ephraim (Britain) as a "fading flower' and then God prophesied about the rulers of Israel: "Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! "Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. " The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet:
Wherefore hear the word of YHWH, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. " Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: " Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. " Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. " And your covenant with death shall be disannulled ["annulled" NKJV], and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it. " From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report" (Isaiah 28:1-3, 14-18).
Who is the covenant of death made with? "Ephraim (Britian) feedeth on wind, and followeth after the east wind: he daily increaseth lies and desolation; and they do make a covenant with the Assyrians, and oil is carried into Egypt" (Hosea 12:1). Who is Assyria? Modern Day Germany who will lead a United States of Euope called the Beast in Prophecy to attack our nations if we don't repent!
Now as we shall see, this prophecy of Isaiah 28 is a dual prophecy. We read that these "rulers" have made a "covenant with death." Making this covenant with Germany, Britain thinks that the " the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us:" (v.15). They think that the great tribulation will not come to us. We are protected. It reminds me of Neville Chamberlain in WWII, when he waved the famous white paper and said that it was "peace in our time." But Hitler attacked anyways. Because it will be an agreement of " lies" and "falsehood" (V.15). What happened in WWII will happen once again. The King of Britain will make a covenant with Germany (The Beast) once again, and God says then "And your covenant with death shall be disannulled ["annulled" NKJV], and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it" (v.18). The Great Tribulation will hit Britain and the USA if we don't repent!
But, now let's look at what God says in verse 16: "I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste." This is Jesus Christ, see Rom 9:33; 1 Peter 2:4-6. Notice that Jesus here is a "sure foundation," just like the "nail in a sure place" of Eliakim in Isaiah 22. These two prophecies of Isaiah 22 and 28 are talking about the same event!
Now during this time called the Great Tribulation what will happen to the King of Britain? Captivity! It states this in Isaiah 22 and also in Deuteronomy 28:36-37: "YHWH shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone. "And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither YHWH shall lead thee"
"Behold, YHWH will carry thee away with a mighty captivity, and will surely cover thee. " He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. " And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down" (Isaiah 22:17-19).
God told David that his seed would last forever. But if they would sin, then God would have to chastise them with the rod of men, see 2 Samuel 7:14. God will correct the seed of David as a father chastens his son see Hebrews 12:5-13. This shows how stubborn mankind is. Instaed of heeding the message now and repenting, they don't listen, and it takes God to put us into captivity to make us repent. God has to take it to that extent, for us to finally soften our hearts, boy is man stubborn. Let's pray for our King and Queen, and pray that they repent of their sins before its too late!
"...the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house. " And I will drive thee from thy station, and from thy state shall he pull thee down" (Isaiah 22:17-19).
Symbols in Britain's Coat of Arms
The crowned lion represents the House of David, of the tribe of Judah. The unicorn represents the tribe of Ephraim. The crest in the middle of the coat of Arms, shows the harp of David. The red lion represents the Zara-Judah line, and the three lions represent the three overturns of the throne of David, see W.H Bennett's book, Symbols of Our Celto-Saxon Heritage.

I completely agree with Lorax on this. The Irish were attempting to synchronize their own histories with those of the Bible. Somewhere in the traditions they gave up tradition for myth to explain this newly *found* connection through the vehicle of myth. This doesn't mean that all of the traditional histories are myths or that there is no useful information within them. It does mean that they're not the lost tribe of Israel.

Actually, the post was instructive. In truth, I'd never heard this particular take on the Milesians and wondered if there was any support for the claim. I spent all day yesterday researching the Milesians and learned quite a bit. One of the most interesting areas involved the possible connection from Ireland to Glazia as a destination for the Immrama or Voyages of the Dead. I really haven't done much research on the Celt-Iberians. There are fascinating connections with the Land of the Dead. One interesting web site I found is: http://www.umoncton.ca/soeler/galiza_mil.htm I can't vouch for the accuracy of many of the claims, but they had the ring of truth to me... that is to say they made sense. I'd be curious to know what others think of some of the assertions. Regarding the original post, it is so filled with faulty logic, revisionist interpretation, and tenuous connections as to be worthless IMHO. -- Wade "Erynn/Gordon" <email@example.com> wrote in message news:FzQK5.27032$E85.firstname.lastname@example.org... > > > The First Overturn and the Annals of Ireland > > > > As we have read, Scota, the daughter of Zedekiah and Nuil the Milesian > > prince of the Zarah-Judah line, married at Egypt.

Blessed be. Cï¿½est bizarre.... Baldur Pastor Sean wrote:
Ark Of The Covenant Part 4
All these things belonging to Israel were well hid. If you follow the records of where Jeremiah went, then you find that he arrived in Ireland with a Hebrew Princess (one of his granddaughters), the daughter of Zedekiah, the last king in Israel. In Scripture she was referred to as a "tender twig" of the Davidic line. In Ireland Jeremiah married Tea Tephi to the then king of Ireland, King Eochaidh, who was from the Zarah line of Judah, bu t here a king in Ireland, long before the Christ was born in Judea. We are told that Jeremiah brought with him not only this Hebrew Princess, but the Davidic crown, the cellars of Salt, and the Ark of the Covenant. They b uilt a special house for this great Ark, and the priests who came with Jeremiah served in this house, built the box.
The Druid Priesthood had been in Ireland many years before this. In fact, they carried back to the ancient Wisdom Schools, started back at the city of On in Egypt. But now everything that was not quite right was purged o ut of Druidry in Ireland.
We are told that it was said that this box was sacred. The people could not behold it at certain times of the year, so the Druid Priesthood said, we will build another box, we will make it like this one, and cover it wit h gold. We can let the people see that this is the promise of our God. So they made another box the same size as this one.
Of course, there are certain things which only tradition can finally answer in our time, until the greater revelation takes place. We are told that at the death of this Queen Tea Tephi, now called Queen Tamar, she who ha d mothered the prince lines of the Royal House of Europe, that when she died they built a 60 foot by 60 foot tomb, the most beautiful rock tomb, and placed her in the tomb. They put emeralds Jeremiah had brought, and a bo x or Ark in the tomb with her. Then they sealed the tomb, and covered the whole of the tomb with earth. Now it is called the hill of Tara, and is still there today.
But there is something else interesting, for we also are told that at the death of this queen, that heavenly messengers came in a great ship, and rested the ship by the temple, where the Ark of the Covenant was. Then we are told that men in white carried out the Ark, and placed it in this great ship. Irish lore says that that box which they put in the hill, where the queen was buried, was that copy made by the Druids. Later, when Westmin ster Abbey was built in London, it meant "God?s house to the westward". The temple in Jerusalem had been God?s house to the eastward, but when this house in London was dedicated, we are told that where the throne chair si ts, in Westminster Abbey, right in this room, there is a slab of stone in the floor, the size of the Ark; and we are told that Druids brought from Ireland a box under a velvet cover, and placed it under the stone in that floor.
You ask then where really is this Ark of the Covenant, this Ark the symbol of Yahweh with His people? We think that the one under the stone of the floor of Westminster Abbey is also a copy, as the one in Tara?s tomb, but they both hold sacred Scriptures. We think the original one went out with the Messengers, who came for it, and thus Israel has been without an Ark, a visible Ark, for a long time.
But wait, Yahshua (Jesus) came and walked among them as a kingdom Redeemer, and after the Resurrection, they retained things in their hearts, (John 14:26). So we turn to the Revelation 11:15, where it states "And the seve nth angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever."
Hail Jesus? Victory!
