A Nation of Kings and Priests

There is a place in the Old Testament that says Israel will be a nation of kings and priests to the other nations on earth.

Israel failed in that job assignment.

The nation that was supposed to show the way to perfect peace and synchronicity with the earth went the exact opposite direction, into rebellion, war, and selfishness.

But what is the history behind that assignment?

We saw in the last post that the nature of the priest-hood originally involved serving the giants. What was not explained was that the man in charge of the other humans in that service was called the king. The first king that we are given any history of is Noah. He was the Chief Butler in the house of Enki. Read Zecharia Sitchin for an understandable, though not entirely accurate, description of the relationship between humans and these giants, and who Enki was in this Parthenon of giants.

Noah stood in the presence of Enki every day, transmitting Enki’s instructions to the humans who were in Enki’s service. Enki saved Noah and his family, along with a group of Enki’s servants (to tell it in the context that can be understood by humans) through the flood, and re-established the relationship after the flood. Then the giants who had caused so much mischief before the flood began doing the same thing all over again, so they were ordered to go to South America, “under-ground” according to a terribly distorted translation, where the giants set up their homes on Lake Titikaka in the Andes, leaving humans to fend for themselves.

Noah chose Shem to succeed him, a decision that has come down to us in the form of “anti-Semitism” through the jealousy of Ham and his descendants. Shem was murdered shortly after the death of Abraham, who was designated to succeed him, but who aged much faster than those born before the flood. The title and designated position then transferred to Isaac, then to Jacob after Isaac’s death. Jacob could not perform the function of judge of all the world’s hard cases on a three-continent circuit, as Semiramis and her husband had usurped the functions of government and built Babylon as their world headquarters from which to rule. They had the backing of the people through the use of the army they developed, taking the power from the “king of the earth” but not the authority, which faded into forgetfulness with the fading of the memory of the giants who ruled.

The authority was the inheritance of Abraham that was passed on to Jacob, resulting in his being renamed Israel, and who had designated Joseph to follow him by clothing him in the “coat of many colors”, resulting in him going into slavery in Egypt, from which he was never set free. Any inheritance he would have received would have automatically become the property of Pharaoh, since slaves had no ownership rights, being owned themselves by their masters. This bit of a thorny situation resulted in an unusual solution. Israel adopted Joseph’s two sons, so that he could pass the inheritance on to Joseph’s posterity, by-passing Pharaoh’s rights of ownership.

This adoption was only possible for one reason. Asenath, the mother of Joseph’s sons (and some sources say was the daughter born to Dinah after the incident of her kidnap by Schechem, and whom Jacob had sent to high priest Potiphor in Egypt to be brought up), was a free woman, therefore her children were born free men (and women, as there is evidence that they had at least one daughter who married into the pharaohnic ┬áline). This is recorded in the statement, “Let my name be named on them…as Reuben and Simeon are mine, let them be mine…” Reuben and Simeon, you will recall, were the first and second sons of Leah, Jacob’s wife through whom the inheritance was supposed to pass by law and tradition. Rachel was a “secondary wife”, what we would call a mistress today, whose children had no rights of inheritance unless the father “recognized” them in the legal system of that day, which Jacob did for the children of Bilhah and Zilpah, but which Jesse did not do for David, the son of a household servant from the family of the high priest who had been indentured through poverty resulting from the non-payment of the first-fruits by the people.

This “blessing of Abraham”, the inheritance, was the land that Abraham had drawn when the land was distributed during the days of Noah – Abraham was 15 years old at the time and considered an adult – and the massive wealth that Abraham had passed down to Jacob. Jacob split the inheritance between Jacob’s sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, giving the land to Ephraim and the gold and silver to Manasseh, who invested it in sea trade. When Jerusalem’s priesthood became corrupt, Manasseh took the wealth up to Tyre, where he invested it in ships and merchandise, which resulted in the greatest sea-going trade the world had ever known up to that time and would not know again until the ships of Rome defeated Carthage, drawing people from all over the world, as Abraham had done when the built the quick-strike dromedary cavalry that resulted in the 12 tribes, and built the group of sea-traders we have come to call the Phoenicians today.

Ephraim, meanwhile, waited until the time of punishment for northern Israel was completed, then led the mass migration into America, named for the steerage star over the city of New Orleans, at the expiration of the time of exile for northern Israel between the years 1798 and 1803, and claimed the land that Japheth’s tents had covered according to the prophecy of Noah so many centuries earlier. Then the inheritance of Abraham came back together again in the largest ocean-going trade migrating from Tyre to Troy, from Troy to London, then from London to New York City where the Statue of Liberty marked its resting place right across from the city of “New-Ark” – the name of the resting place of the Ark of the Covenant, “Shiloh”, properly translated, is “Liberty”, “Until Shiloh comes…”, and which became the sole super-power of the world according to the prophecy to Abraham, and which was supposed to supply the leadership attributable to the king of the world, but which has failed to do so. And now we see the Harbinger at work (google Jonathan Kahn’s book, “The Harbinger”), and the decline as prophesied, while the Star of Power is preparing to return to the Middle East, to the land called Israel, to its starting place, to re-establish the power there for the next phase of history.

The next King of the World will rule from Jerusalem in a reunited Israel in the near future.
