Judah’s Sceptre during the time of Esau’s Dominion — Where is it?
The Once and Future Black Nobility
I want in this mailing to reconcile two apparently contradictory prophecies:
Genesis 49:10: The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come…
Genesis 27:40: And by thy sword shalt thou [Esau] live, and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion, that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
According to Genesis 49:10, the scepter shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh come — the return of Yahweh and Yeshua. But according to Genesis 27:40, there would come a time, when Esau would have the dominion. If the scepter symbolizes rulership, does not the one who has dominion, “wield the scepter”? How to reconcile the apparent contradiction?
The seedline of Esau (Edom), has indeed come into rulership through the sword, and through usury and other banking schemes. This is Esau’s blessing, prophesied at Genesis 27:40. Esau is alive and present as part of modern Jewry.
Zedekiah’s Female Heir
What has happened to Jacob’s, and more specifically Judah’s inheritance, in the meantime?
The throne of David — Judah’s inheritance — passed to a female heir after Zedekiah and his sons were slain by Nebuchadnezzar. Through that female heir, Jacob’s pillar, and the scepter of Judah, passed to the British Isles. This is one of the tenets of British Israelism, which I am guided is correct. Hear or forebear.
Female inheritance is provided for under Israelite law, whenever there is no male heir. There is however the pre-requisite that the female heir marry within the tribe (Numbers 36:3-9, 27:8), that the inheritance not pass therefrom.
This condition was fulfilled when the female heir in question, Scota, married the Irish king, Eochaidh. He too was of the seed of Judah through Zerah, the twin of Perez from whom David was descended.
In the fullness of time, Jacob’s pillar was taken by an Irish king who came to rule over “Scotland,” so named after Scota. There it became the “stone of Scone,” after the castle to which it was taken.
The Inheritance passes to the United Kingdom and Edomite Rule
Thus when King James, I of England and VI of Scotland, united the thrones of Scotland and England, Jacob’s pillar, along with Judah’s scepter, became the inheritance of monarchs of the “United Kingdom.” That inheritance, by right, has not departed from the tribe of Judah.
But … James I, for his part, was Edomite on his father’s side (I am so guided, without benefit of the genealogy; hear or forebear) while his claim to the throne came through his mother, Mary, Queen of Scots, whose own claim was based on undisputed descent from Zedekiah, through Scota (and Eochaidh).
In this way, Judah’s inheritance — scepter, and Jacob’s pillar — is held by Esau, though the claim itself still rightfully belongs to the tribe of Judah under the law of female inheritance (Numbers 27:8, 36:7-8). Thus, at one and the same time, Esau gained the dominion, yet the scepter did not pass from Judah. In this way, Edomite monarchs of Britain, held reign — the dominion — over large swathes of the world. They were coronated upon Jacob’s pillar, and held the scepter of Judah, even though by paternal seedline they were of Esau.
Blue Blood and Black Nobility
But are the Edomites not “white” people? What would that do for the maintained claim that the Israelites were and remain, a “black” people? The answer is that the matter is not either-or, rather both-and. The black roots of British monarchy, and indeed European nobility more generally, are still apparent.
Israelite and Edomite seedline, both, gave rise to the so-called “black nobility” of Europe, which at one time was visibly “Negro”. See accompanying portraits of King James I, King Charles II, the “black boy” king of England, and even of their descendant, Elizabeth II, which attest to this “Negro” origin. Evidence of this “Negro” origin is evident also from portraits of other European, “blue-blood” nobility, e.g., King Louis XIV, Anne of Denmark, and Charlotte of Stecklenburg, all related to the British royal house. There is abundant evidence still present in portraiture (paint and pen alike), family crests, and the like.
For many more examples, see (1) cited evidence for Edmond Codfried’s thesis that “blue blood” is black blood, which I am guided is essentially correct; and (2) J. A. Rogers (1952),Nature Knows No Color Line: Research into the Negro Ancestry in the White Race.
White Skin and Leprosy
This raises a question, how did the European Israelites turn “white.” The answer is that, both, full-black Hebrew Israelites and Edomites and also “white” ones, were scattered into Europe. Here it must be understood that “white” skin is but the healed (Leviticus 13:13) residue of leprosy, which in biblical terms is merely white skin, not otherwise disabling. For example, Naaman was described as a “mighty man of valor, but he was a leper” (2 Kings 5:1). And we see Gehazi, and his seed, was cursed with leprosy:
2 Kings 5:27. The leprosy therefore of Naaman shall cleave unto thee, and unto thy seed for ever. And he went out from his presence a leper as white as snow.
So we see leprosy here described merely as white skin. And we see also that at least as to Gehazi, it would be a heritable condition, to affect his descendants “for ever”. Therefore, we may infer that the Israelites (and Edomites) who scattered into Europe would have been both white and black. Moreover, by the same mechanism by which Naaman the Syrian became a leper white as snow, other Europeans, for example those of the seed of Japheth who populated those lands (Genesis 10:2-5), also would have turned “white”. Therefore, one may surmise that “white” people emerged over time from some mix of the original black, with healed lepers. Note carefully: this is a process different from albinism, which may or may not also have played a role in the emergence of “white” people.
The Inheritance, the Blessing, and the British
The story as told, is that Scota escaped with Prophet Jeremiah to the west and north when Zedekiah and his sons were slain by Zebuchadnezzar. John Pratt (see “Geological evidence for the British throne of David”) has examined geological evidence for the claim that the stone of Scone, is Jacob’s pillar (Genesis 35:14) as claimed by tradition. I am guided that this thesis is correct. Thus, British (variously Irish, Scottish, and English) royalty has been coronated upon Jacob’s pillar since ca. 500 BCE, continuing the tradition (2 Kings 23:3, 2 Chronicles 23:13) that otherwise would have ended with King Zedekiah of Judah.
But note carefully … To the extent the British royal House of Windsor is Edomite rather than Judahite in its male line, the condition (Numbers 36:3-9, 27:8), under which a female or her heirs could inherit the throne of David is vitiated. Thus, when “Shiloh come,” the scepter, and rulership, will revert to a Judahite of the blood. This will be Yeshua, come to claim not only his rightful inheritance — the throne, scepter, and Jacob’s pillar, the stone of Scone — but also to claim the blessing of dominion.
In the latter regard, note carefully that Jacob was given the blessing of dominion before Esau, and the latter’s enjoyment of it was only to be temporary; see Genesis 27:28-29vs.38-40, read together with Daniel 2:44, 7:14, 7:26, Ezekiel 39:7, Obadiah 1:18, Isaiah 51:22-23, etc. That temporary enjoyment will have run its course, “when Shiloh come.” Rule by a “black” nobility will return to Europe and indeed the world. For Yeshua and his Israelite brethren, who will bear rule, are black people, to go by Scripture.
Racial Triumphalism Disclaimed
I hasten to add that this is not a racist statement, and should not be construed as such, nor seized upon by those for whom “Shiloh come” is to be viewed as some sort of racial triumph. Yes, Scripture is clear that Yeshua is black-skinned and woolly-haired (Revelation 1:14-15), as are the “Ancient of Days” and his angels (Daniel 7:9, 10:6). Israelites of the blood will today be found in various shades, due precisely to the mechanism that we may infer from the curse of Gehazi.
The point rather that I seek to make is that the prophecies of Genesis 27:40 and Genesis 49:10 may be reconciled. There did come a time when Esau assumed the dominion (Genesis 27:40). This has been accomplished through the British royal houses, starting with James I and the royal house of Stuart that unified the Scottish (Irish-derived) and English thrones.
But the Edomite incumbents rule not in their own right as children of Esau, rather claim the right to the scepter and to Jacob’s pillar, through inheritance from Zedekiah, go back to Jacob. It is in this sense that the “sceptre” has not departed from Judah (Genesis 49:10). Moreover, under Israelite law, it properly remains the property of the tribe of Judah, and is set to be reclaimed, “when Shiloh come.”
