Not King of the Jews - Part
The names of blasphemy are man-made denominations of religion
with man-made names and ordinances.
The head of gold was Nebuchadnezzar's great image was, of course,
the second great world Empire of Chaldea (Babylon) which began in 604 B.C.
There is no mistake about this because the bible says so. (Daniel 2:83)
The arms and chest of silver was the Medo-Persian empire. The belly and
thighs of brass was the Grecian Empire. The legs of iron and feet of iron
and clay with ten toes was Rome. All Gentile governments of the world are
included in Chaldea, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. These governments existed
contemporarily but were all eventually absorbed in Rome. The feet represent
Rome and the ten toes the ten kingdoms of the roman Empire. Now we wish
to speak particularly about Rome.
"And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven
mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five
are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh
he must continue a short space. And the beast the was, and is not, even
he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the
ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom
as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have
one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These
shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he
is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called,
and chosen, and faithful." (Revelation 17:9-14)
The seven mountains of Rome are (1) Aventine, (2) Capitaline,
(3) Palatine, (4) Esquiline, (5) Caelian, (6) Quirinal, (7) Viminal. They
correspond to the seven governments of Rome, Namely: (1) Monarchial from
753 to 509 B.C. Then from 509 B.C. to 31 B.C., there were: (2) the Praetors
or consuls, (3) Dictatorial, (4) Decemvirate; ruled by ten kings and the
code that governs all Gentile governments until this day was formed by
them in 451 B.C. (5) Triumvirate; ruled by Caesar, Crassus and Pompey;
later by Octavius, Anthony and Lepidus. Then from 31 B.C., to 476 A.D.,
Rome was ruled by (6) The Imperial form of government in which there were
twelve Caesars of pure Roman blood from Julius to Domitan, ending in 96
A.D. In 97 A.D., Nerva, the Cretan, invaded Rome. A great era of prosperity
followed until 192 A.D. But from that time that is from 192 A.D. to 284
A.D. Rome had 34 emperors from Comodus to Carinus and 19 tyrants of which
all but two were assassinated. Truly the dragon had received a deadly blow
by the early Christians (Revelations 13:3-12) but that deadly wound was
healed. 7) The Seventh form of government was that of the Exarch of Ravenna.
The church lost her first love, compromised and amalgamated with paganism
and the (8) eighth form of government; the eighth within the seventh (Revelation
17:11) was the union of the Roman Church and Roman State, thus preserving
the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages came on and lasted for 1260 years. During
that time Christ's true church was hiding, or hidden in the wilderness.
Now Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar that those Gentile governments
would last for 2520 years, saying, "Let seven times pass over him." (Daniel
4:16) "time" is a Hebrew year of 360 days. "Seven times" (7 times 360)
is 2520, and Ezekiel 4:6 gives us a day for a year. The "head of Gold"
Babylon began in 604 B.C. Now 2520 years brings us to 1914 A.D., at which
time God began to end the Gentile nations of the earth. We have had two
wars since then and it will take a third one to complete the job.
Now apart from those Gentile governments there was a stone, cut
out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet. That stone grew,
became a great mountain and filled the earth. That stone kingdom is God's
kingdom of Israel and is none other than Great Britain and the United States.
We are not Gentile kingdoms as are the other Israelite governments of the
world. Our common law based upon the bible, our literature in which is
embedded every verse of scripture, and our English language which is 25
per cent Hebrew and contains more words than all the rest of the languages
of the earth, etc., sets us apart and proves that we are God's Stone Kingdom
Italy and Fascism is the feet of the great image. Russian and
Communism is the dragon head of the great image. We struck Italy first.
We (the Stone Kingdom) struck the image on the feet. There is a story in
ancient lore that tells us that when the Goddess Theda was bathing Achilles
she held him by the heel and his heel did not get washed and was thereafter
his weak mortal spot. Italy has always been known as the boot, and southern
Italy as Achilles heel. We struck at the heel and toes (the feet) of the
great image and put down Fascism in Italy. Next Germany had her Siegfried
line of fortification and Nazism.
Another Greek legend says that when Siegfried was bathing in the
dragon's blood a leaf stuck on his back and left a spot which was not covered
and that was always afterward a mortal weak spot. Well, we found the weak
mortal spot in the Siegfried line. From the tomes and heel and up the boot
and across the Rhine we put Fascism and Nazism down. This Stone Kingdom
of Israel (Great Britain and the United States) is the largest kingdom
that has ever existed on this earth. We have become a great mountain. Whoever
falls upon this stone will be broken, but those upon whom this stone fails
will be ground to powder. Jesus said unto the Jews:
"Therefore say I unto you, and given to a nation bringing forth
the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:
but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder." (Matthew
The Stone Kingdom of Israel was taken away from the Tribe of Judah
in Judea in 586 B.C., and moved to the British Isles. This Stone, Great
Britain and America, is set at nought by the Jews and is to them a stumbling
stone and rock of offense, and to all the other Gentile governments this
Stone Kingdom is the smiting stone.
Not King of the Jews - Part 8
To those of us who know that we are Israel, our Stone Kingdom
is Jacob's Stone pillar; "Bethel" (house of God) of which Jesus Christ
is our keystone and chief cornerstone, for that rock is Christ (1 Corinthians
10:4) and our nations the true latter days house of Judah and Israel are
built upon the rock and can never be destroyed. (Matthew 7:24-25) We are
the great mill stone and God will use us to crush His enemies and all the
combination of false governments and united religions (under Judaism) of
the world which will be (or are) set up under Satan and his children, the
children of perdition and man of sin.
"And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and
cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city
of Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all." (Revelation
Yew, we the Anglo-Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, Celtic, Nordic,
Slavic and kindred people of the world are Israel and therefore we are
God's Stone Kingdom and our King is Jesus Christ who is now and always
will be our King. We are the literal Stone Kingdom of God on earth ruled
by Jesus Christ from His throne in heaven:
"Now until the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise
God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen." (1 Timothy 1:17)
"Whom do men say that I am? (Matthew 16:13)
"Whom say ye that I am?" (Matthew 16:15)
"What think ye of Christ?" (Matthew 22:42)
This sermon is one of the most important and essential sermons
that have ever been preached for Christianity stands or falls upon the
way these questions are answered.
The first question is by Christ to His disciples:
"Whom do men say that I the son of man am?" (Matthew 16:13_
Well, they answered saying,
"Some say that thou art John the Baptist, some Elias; and other
Jeremias, or one of the prophets." (Matthew 16:14)
We wish we had time to discuss at length those current opinions
that the people held concerning Christ. The opinion that he was John the
Baptist must have been very strong because after Herod had beheaded John
the Baptist and heard of the works of Christ he said:
"This is John the Baptist; he is risen from the dead." (Matthew
Then the opinion that he was Elias was based upon the scriptures
but was a case of the wrong time element and identification, for the very
last verses of the Old Testament state emphatically the Elijah will return
before the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
"Behold I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of
the great and dreadful day of the Lord: and he shall turn the heart of
the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children in their fathers,
lest I come, and smite the earth with a curse." (Malachi 4:5-6)
But the coming of Christ, God in the flesh, was not the great
and dreadful day of the Lord. That day is still in the future; in fact
we can say that right now it is at hand, or at least it appears to be at
hand. We may expect Elijah, Jeremiah and others to return in this age in
which we are living. The point we are making is that the Bible does teach
that the dead will return to life on the earth. Isaiah said,
"They dead men shall live. Together with my dead body shall they
arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust: for thy dew is as the
dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead." (Isaiah 26:19)
Job told us:
"For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at
the latter day upon the earth: And though after my skin worms destroy this
body, yet in my flesh shall I see God." (Job 19:25-26)
The resurrection of the dead will be gradual and positively scientific.
The earth (globe) is tilted and out of its original order. The tilt took
place at the time of the flood. Since then the elements have been hostile
and the climate severe and men only live about one-seventh as long as they
did before the flood.
The earth received seven times more energy from the sun before
the flood than it does now. At the present time the energy from the sun
is 385,000 times greater than the moon. You know the moon governs the germination
of all seed by a cycle of sevens, that the moon controls all nature. The
Lunar month of 28 days or a cycle of four sevens, and so on, is the controlling
factor in germination, gestation and growth of all plants and animals.
When this globe swings back to its original place, the energy of the sun
will be seven-fold and the energy of the moon will be increased 385,000
times or to equal that of the sun today.
"Morever the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun,
and the light of the sun shall be seventyfold, as the light of seven days,
in the day that the lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth
the stroke of their wound." (Isaiah 30:26)
Adam lived 930years, Methuselah 969 years. (Genesis 5:5, 27) When
the earth swings back to its original perpendicular position the climate
will be even. Six-sevenths of the earth's surface will be land.
Therefore we can expect the life span of man to be from 700 to
1,000 years in the world when it is restored to its original position.
We can also expect an even climate all over the world and seven crops in
a year instead of one, and the fruit of the earth will be seven times larger
and will contain seven times more energy.
"Women with child shall bring forth...children in three or four
months and they shall live." (The time of gestation will then be three
months instead of nine as it is today) (2 Esdras 6:21)
"And the earth shall restore those that are asleep in her, and
so shall the dust those that dwell in silence..." (2 Esdras 7:32)
"Those that be dead will I raise up again from their places and
bring them out of the graves...Remember thy children that sleep (in death)
for I will bring them out of the sides of the earth..." (2 Esdras 2:16,
Not King of the Jews - 9
The babies and little children that are dead will be returned
form the grave at the same age they were when they died (it would appear
this also includes the unborn, which will be born alive at that time).
They will be reared to manhood and womanhood by their own parents in their
own homes. (Jeremiah 31:15:17; Micah 4:4) Al the dead will return to live
on this earth in good health (this appears to be the resurrection). The
curse of disease will gradually be eliminated.
We read that God "hath shortened the days." (Mark 13:20) In 1914
A.D., God began shortening the time. It appears that the earth is now swinging
back to its original perpendicular axis at a rate of eighteen hours a year
and this may be increased. People live longer today and stay younger and
healthier than at any other time in the past 4,000 years.
The soil of all the earth is being revitalized and the crops are
larger and better than ever before. Astronomically and geologically and
scientifically the curse is being removed form the earth this new energy
as "the dew of herbs" that comes form Christ who has "the dew of thy youth"
will raise up the dead as naturally as a seed grows out of the soil.
What will that be but the resurrection and return of the dead
to life; born as it were by Melchizedek out of "the womb of the morning."
"The LORD shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule
thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the
day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning:
thou hast the dew of thy youth. The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent,
Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek." (Psalm 110:2-4)
It is reasonable and logical and scientifically correct to believe
that those who have died last and have been dead the shortest length of
time will be the first to be raised up and returned to life on earth.
"They shall come from the east, and the west, and from the north
and the south...and behold there are last (the last that died) which shall
be first and there are first (the first that died on the earth) which shall
be last." (Luke 13:29-30)
The Bible is chiefly concerned with Israel and it is definitely
stated that every Israelite will be saved and restored to life on this
earth in and by and through the resurrection:
"All Israel shall be saved." (Romans 11:26)
How? By the resurrection of the dead:
"What shall the receiving of them be but life from the dead."
And in what way shall the resurrection take place?
"Therefore prophesy and say unto them, thus saith the Lord God;
" Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up
out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall
know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and
brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and
ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know
that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD." (Ezekiel
And David will be raised from the dead and seated on the Throne
over all Israel:
"But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king,
whom I will raise up unto them." (Jeremiah 30:9)
For a second witness:
"And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall
have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my
statutes, and do them." (Ezekiel 37:24)
All this truth is so clearly stated that if anyone can understand
anything in the Bible they can understand this truth of the literal, gradual
resurrection of the dead and restoration of the earth. Not only will the
Israelites be raised up and restored but the people of all other nations
likewise shall be raised up and their nations restored.
"When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their
former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former
estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate."
The current opinions about Christ when He was upon earth were
wrong. He was not John the Baptist, Elias or Jeremiah. The people were
not wrong about the Bible truth that the prophets and wise men of God would
return to earth, but they were wrong as tot he time when they were to return.
Modernists of today tell us that Christ was the summit of Evolution.
The most perfectly developed human animal. Fundamentalists tell us that
Christ was a Jew. We cannot waste our time in discussing the foolish modernist
and fundamentalist opinions about Christ.
The next question asked by Christ was far more important, pointed
and personal. It was not, "Whom do men say that I am?" but it was "Whom
say ye that I am?" (Matthew 16:15)
The whole Christian system depends upon the way you answer that
question. The church rests upon the true answer to the question.
"And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son
of the living God." (Matthew 16:16)
That, is the only creed the only Faith, the only belief of the
True Christian: "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God."
Not King of the Jews - 10
Peter did not say, Thou art a Jew. He did not say, Thou art the
Son of David. He did not say, Thou art Elias or Jeremiah; No, Sir! He said,
"Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God," and that is the truth
and that is who Christ was and is.
The next two questions Christ put to the Jewish Scribes and Pharisees:
"What think ye of Christ?...Who's Son is He?"
"While the Pharisees were gathered together, Christ asked them
saying, What think ye of Christ? Whose Son is he? They say unto him, The
Son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit called
him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how
is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst
any man from that day forth ask him any more questions." (Matthew 22:41-46)
Those scribes and Pharisees were wrong in saying that Christ was
the son of David, yet many Judeo-Christian ministers will give that same
stock answer. He said Christ was the son of David and he quoted Matthew
1:1 to prove it: "Jesus Christ the son of David." (Matthew 1:1) They are
wresting the scriptures and lifting that verse out of its context. Please
do not stop with that verse but read on through the lineage from Matthew
1:1 to Matthew 1:16, and lo, and behold, when he got to verse sixteen it
read as follows:
"And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born
Jesus, who is called Christ." (Matthew 1:16)
So we say, that the first chapter of Matthew gives the lineage
of Joseph, the husband of Mary, (who was not the father of Christ, but
only his foster father), for scripture declares that Mary conceived seed
by the Holy Ghost before she and Joseph ever came together:
"And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto
a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, To a virgin espoused to a man whose
name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary.
And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured,
the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him,
she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation
this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast
found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and
bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and
shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto
him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of
Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. Then said Mary
unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel
answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the
power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing
which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." (Luke 1:26-35)
"Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother
Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with
child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and
not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared
unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take
unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy
Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:
for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that
it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and
they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with
us. Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had
bidden him, and took unto him his wife: And knew her not till she had brought
forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS." (Matthew 1:18-25)
In the face of these scriptures many Judeo-Christian preachers
are forced to admit that Christ was born of a Virgin, that god was His
Father, and that He was in no way related to Joseph and that the lineage
of Matthew 1:1-16 was that of Joseph and not the lineage (or ancestral
line) of Christ. But they do not appreciate learning that and they are
always angry at the one presenting this view.
Now some Judeo-Christian clergy, will say that the lineage in
Matthew 1:1-16 was that of Joseph (and that's true), but that the lineage
in Luke 3:23-38 was the lineage of Mary and therefore the true ancestral
line of Christ. When asked how they arrive at any such conclusion, they
will read Luke 3:23:
"And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being
(as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli."
They will reply:
"Now that verse is a wrong translation and here is how it should
"And now Jesus himself began to be about 30 years of age, being
(as was supposed) the son of Joseph which was the SON-IN-LAW of Heli, the
father of Mary."
that we must reply:
"Hold on a minute. You are reading into the Bible words that are
not there, neither in the original languages nor in any translation of
the New Testament. If you can insert the words SON-IN-LAW of HELI into
the bible instead of "SON OF HELI" then by such insertions and substitutions
by man the whole Bible can be destroyed and a man can prove anything or
any theory if he inserts his own words and changes the meaning and words
of the Bible."
The lineage in both Matthew 1:1-16 and Luke 3:23-28 is the lineage
of Joseph and is not the lineage of Mary and is not the lineage of Jesus.
Matthew gives the ancestors from Abraham to Joseph. Luke gives the ancestors
all the way from Adam to Joseph. Joseph had a father and a mother, and
therefore he had, as we have, a paternal and maternal genealogy. That could
explain the difference in some of the names in the two lineages.
Not King of the Jews - Part 11
Here is a fact about the keeping of a written record of ancient
ancestral lines. They were secret files, written in code and carefully
guarded. Two lineages of every great man were written. Names were mixed
up in each lineage, but by a secret art of comparing the two lineages the
true names of the ancestors could be determined. (I do not say that this
rule of the ancients applied to the lineages in Matthew and Luke, and even
if it does the key of comparisons and interpretation of secret ancestral
line is lost). Anyway there is very little if any discrepancy in the lineages
as given by Matthew and by Luke and it is definitely stated the they are
the lineage of Joseph and not of Jesus.
These Bible lineages are of great value in measuring time, for
instance, we can begin with Adam in the fifth chapter of Genesis: Adam
lived 130 years and Seth was born. (Genesis 5:3) Seth was 105 years old
when Enos was born. (Genesis 5:6) Enos was 90 years of age when Canaan
was born. (Genesis 5:8)
By putting down the age of each man when his son was born and
then adding up these ages we find it was 1656 years from Adam to the flood.
(Genesis 5:1-32; Genesis 7:6) Carry this on through the Bible and by adding
up the ages of all the ancestors when their sons were born you will find
that it was 4004 years from Adam to Joseph the husband of Mary.
Christ was born 4004 years after Adam was formed. Another great
value of the Bible lineages is that they connect and identify the true
people through whom God has worked; the Sethites, Seatic, Hebrew, Israelitish
White Race. We were never uncivilized, never heathens. We have been God's
Chosen people all the way from Adam to the present time.
Profane worldly history records true and authentic dates back
only as far as the first Olympics in Greece, 750 B.C., or to the building
of Carthage, 800 B.C., but Bible history shows a true and unbroken line
of God's people going back 6000 years or 4004 years before Christ.
"For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: THE LORD THY
GOD HATH CHOSEN THEE TO BE A SPECIAL PEOPLE UNTO HIMSELF, ABOVE ALL PEOPLE
THAT ARE UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. The LORD DID NOT SET HIS LOVE UPON
YOU, NOR CHOOSE YOU, because ye were more in number than any people; for
ye were the fewest of all people: BUT BECAUSE THE LORD LOVED YOU, and BECAUSE
HE WOULD KEEP THE OATH WHICH HE HAD SWORN UNTO YOUR FATHERS..." (Deuteronomy
7:6-8; 14:2; Isaiah 41:9; 43:1, 10-20; 44:23; 48:10; 49:3; Haggai 2:23)

"Now the LORD had told Samuel in his ear a day before Saul came,
saying, To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land
of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be captain OVER MY PEOPLE ISRAEL,
THAT HE MAY SAVE MY PEOPLE out of the hand of the Philistines: for I HAVE
LOOKED UPON MY PEOPLE, because their cry is come unto me. And when Samuel
saw Saul, the LORD said unto him, BEHOLD THE MAN WHOM I SPAKE TO THEE OF
THIS SAME SHALL REIGN OVER MY PEOPLE." (Exodus 7:4; 1 Samuel 9:15-17; 2

not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen
thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand
of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall
be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive
with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them,
even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be
as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold
thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. FEAR NOT,
THOU WORM JACOB, AND YE MEN OF ISRAEL; I WILL HELP THEE, SAITH THE LORD,
AND THY REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL." (Isaiah 41:8-14; 43:10; 44:1-2;
Thou Art My Servant:
"Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called

Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia
and Seba for thee. Since thou waste precious in my sight, thou hast been
honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee,
and people for thy life." (Isaiah 43:1, 34)

God chose Abraham alone.
"Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek
the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the
pit whence ye are digged. Look unto Abraham your father, and unto Sarah
that bare you: FOR I CALLED HIM (Abraham) ALONE, and blessed him, and increased
him." (Isaiah 51:1-2)
It is admitted, even by those who Hate Christ that Joseph, the
husband of Mary, was of the Royal House of David or House of Judah, but
we deny venomously that he (Joseph) was a Jew by flesh and blood and nationality.
Here is what most people fail to understand; A Royal House (family) is
not necessarily of the same flesh and blood and nationality as that of
the subjects over which they rule. The King of Greece is not necessarily
a Greek. The King of Italy is not necessarily and Italian. The Kaiser was
not necessarily a German. The Royal Families or Royal Houses of the world
are a separate and distinct people.
If we had time and space we could prove that the Royal family
of the Pharaoh's of Egypt was not of the same flesh and blood and race
as the people of Egypt over whom they ruled. David was given a separate
house in Israel; A Royal House apart form any tribe. Therefore the Royal
House of Judah was not necessarily of the tribe of Judah. As we look into
the ancestry of David we find that actually by blood relationship he came
from the tribe of Ephraim. This is not hard to prove: Elimelech and Naomi
were Ephrathites of Bethlehem. (Ruth 1:2). Boas, a near kinsman of Elimelieck
(an Ephrathite) married Ruth (an Israelite who lived in Moab, but was called
a Moabitess) a Moabitess and from this line came Obed, Jesse and David.
Bethlehem at first was called Ephrath and was settled by those of the tribe
of Ephraim; the crown was to be upon the head of Joseph (Genesis 49:26)
and the blessing to all Israel was to come through Joseph's sons, Ephraim
and Manasseh. (Read the 48th and 49th chapters of Genesis), upon whom the
name of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob/Israel was called. Therefore, David was
a Judahite only in the sense that God gave him a separate Royal House that
was set over Judah and all Israel.
Since the kingdom of Judah remained after a worldly fashion in
name only in Palestine until Christ came, we find that Joseph, the husband
of Mary, was of the Royal House of Judah (David) through Solomon. Therefore,
from his foster father, Joseph, (note the name Joseph) Christ inherited
the throne of Judah, but He refused to be a king over the spurious, false,
organized kingdom of the Jews in Palestine. The cross was preferable to
"When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come, and take
him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself
alone." (John 6:16)
Two of the highest titles that the Israelites could confer upon
a man were those of "The Son of man" and "The Son of David." Christ wore
those titles. Neither of them had any reference to blood relationship to
David or to any family; they were titles of honor.
Mary, the mother of Christ, was not a Jewess; she was a Levitess
of the tribe of Levi, (Luke 1:5, 36) the priestly family of Israel. All
the priests in Israel were Levites and almost all of the Old Testament
scriptures were written by Levites. Christ, through Mary, inherited the
High Priesthood over Israel as through Joseph He inherited the throne over
Judah and Israel.
Many Biblical students believe that Joseph, the husband of Mary,
was the greatest man in the human family of Adam that ever lived on this
earth. He was the finished product of 4000 years of blood and training
in the things of the Kingdom of God. Naturally God would choose the greatest
man in human existence to be the foster father of Christ. Think it over!
Never once did Christ ever call Joseph His father or refer to him as father.
It is also believed by many Biblical students that the Virgin Mary was
the purest, most holy woman that ever lived on earth. That is why she is
called the "Blessed Virgin." (Luke 1:48)
But Christ never called her mother or referred to her as his mother.
Why? Remember that when a delegation came to Christ and told Him that His
mother was outside the crowd waiting to see Him,
"Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren (here
is testimony that Christ had brothers) stand without, desiring to speak
with thee. But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother?
And who are my brethren? And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples,
and said Behold my mother and my brethren!" (Matthew 12:47-49)
It was the business of Christ to give to all that accepted Him
the privilege to "become the sons of God" (John 1:12) and heirs of God
and joint heirs with Himself (Romans 8:16-17; Galatians 4:7) and this relationship
lifts a person out of the family of Adam and up into the new creation in
the heavenly family of God. You understand that Christ existed before the
world was created and in His prayer to God He speaks of "the glory which
I had with thee before the world was." (John 17:5)
Christ often appeared in the world before He came in the flesh:
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were
made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him
was life; and the life was the light of men." (John 1:1-4) In the very
first chapter of Genesis Christ is there,
"And God said, Let there be light, and there was light." (Genesis
And Christ said to us,
"I am the light of the world." (John 8:12)
Then in that same first chapter of Genesis God said,
"Let us make man in our image." (Genesis 1:26)
