In my last article I talked about the prophecy in Ezekiel 17:22 about the young twigs being cut from a tall cedar, the tall cedar being King Zedekiah and the young twigs being his offspring. Since the young twig is to be a tender one, we determined it to mean that it had to be daughters of King Zedekiah. Now, under normal circumstances, the succession of that Kingship of throne would have gone to a son, but since all of Zedekiah’s sons were killed by the Babylonians, this right to the throne was thus passed on the daughter(s) in accordance with the Mosaic Law of inheritance, as laid out in Numbers 36:2, where we read that a certain man of the tribe of Manasseh had no sons and thus his portion of the land inheritance was passed on to his daughters. But, you may ask, since the throne and Kingdom ceased to be a reality in Judea, where would this Royal daughter find a throne. It is at this point that enter Jeremiah, the prophet. We read in Jer. 1:10, these prophetic words which the Lord spoke to the prophet, saying “See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the Kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.”
Now we know that Jeremiah was not a man of war or a conquering hero, thus the rooting out the pulling down and the destroying on Jeremiah’s side were not an act of force, but instead Jeremiah was the prophet of our God, and thus verbally accomplished these things by proclaiming God’s will and intensions concerning, not only the House of Judah, but also Egypt, Moab, Philistia, Ammon, Edom, etc., and even Babylon, the power that would in the very near future destroy all these other nations. But it is the building and the planting that is of great importance here. After the fall of Jerusalem and Judah, Jeremiah was given charge over the daughters Royal.
Against Jeremiah’s advice and prophetic warning (Jer. 42, 43, 44), the small remnant of Judah fled to Egypt, taking also the prophet and the King’s daughters, a place where the Lord said they would all certainly die. That prophecy was fulfilled a few years later when Nebuchadnezzar overran Egypt. It is here that the mainstream churches claim that the prophet Jeremiah died. But, if that was the case, then God’s mandate to build and to plant, (Jer. 1:10) would remain unfulfilled. Still, there is another scenario that is adhered to by most of all Christian Identity fold, and that is that Jeremiah, together with Baruch, his scribe, took the King’s daughters and left the Judah remnant, travelling by way of Spain and then made his way to his final destination, which was Ireland.
In Ireland, there is ample evidence and folklore that a prophet or wise man from a far country to the East, called Olam Fola, together with a helper called Bruch, bought a Royal Princess from that far country, who was given in marriage to Eochaid the Heremon, High King of the Irish. In order to understand the significance of this we must of need do a little backtracking in history. When Jacob and his family first moved to Egypt, his son Judah had with him his twin sons by Tamar, namely, Perez or Phares and Zerah or Zara (the spelling of the names varies). Since Phares was the firstborn, he was the inheritor. Zara thus had no such right. This half tribe of Judah decided to leave Egypt and the rest of the family and strike out on their own, which they did, probably in the ships of Dan, for they were a travelling and seafaring tribe. That half tribe of Judah eventually arrived and settled in what is now known as Ireland. Thus, at that point the two half tribes of Judah were reunited in order that the Davidic throne would not be lost or terminated. In fulfillment of the prophetic blessing of Jacob concerning Judah’s sceptre and the prophetic promise to David, made by God through Nathan the prophet, that his Royal throne would be established for all time. (2Sam. 7:10) and (1Kings 2:4).
There is nothing happenstance in God’s great plan for mankind and especially His dealings with His people Israel. Through adversity and strife, through calamity and setbacks, through blessings and curses, our great God will bring and is bringing His rebellious people back to Him, to be His servants that will spread the good tidings of God’s Kingdom, under the Leadership of His Son and our King, to a world gone mad, until eventually every knee will bow and all opposition to His Divine Will and Rule shall be no more. Hasten that day, O, Lord, for this world, including your Christian nations, is wallowing in sin and corruption. Have mercy on your remnant and tarry not lest we stumble in our weakness, in Christ Jesus name we ask this. Amen!
