“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 abuse 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.” (Ezekiel 21: 26-27)
In the unfolding of His Plan, God positioned King Edward I as a man of great destiny. Eighteen centuries earlier the Throne of David had been transferred to Ireland when the prophet Jeremiah arrived with Jacob’s Pillar Stone and the eldest daughter of the slain King Zedekiah. Jeremiah arranged her marriage to King Eochaidh, thus fulfilling the first overturn of the throne as prophesied by Ezekiel. The second overturn took place around 500 AD when the Irish king, Fergus the Great, conquered Scotland and sent for the Stone and had himself crowned King of Scotland. Neither he nor the throne returned to Ireland, thus fulfilling the second part of God’s Promise. King Edward 1 was destined to overturn the throne for the third and final time.
