Queen Elizabeth was laid to rest in her tomb today with the greatest of fanfare. Often, I hear people ask, “who cares?”, or “why is the monarchy in England really any news?”
The media simply has no clue as their level of ignorance is astounding; especially when it comes to the true God and the Bible. We here at The Plain Truth will tell you all about the Monarchy of Great Britain and it is fascinating!
Are you ready?
It is yet another example of Biblical prophecy being fulfilled and playing out in our lifetime!
I often get emails and talk with people who do not believe in the Bible. Many professing Christians even think that the Bible is not the literal word of God, but only man's impression of God. I am often told that the Bible is filled with mistakes and prophecies that never come to pass however, today, the world has stopped to watch the burial of a Queen and most have no understanding at all about the significance of what they are watching.
How in the dark they are!
Here is something that may shock you...God predicted over 3,000 years ago that King David would always have a descendent on his throne! Present time, 3,000 years later, here we are literally witnessing this fact of the Bible that has been foretold; what a very special thing to behold.
I encourage you to take the time to read up on this, study this topic of the British Monarchy and investigate deep into it as I promise all that you discover will not disappoint. You will see yet more proof of the accuracy of the Bible prophecies that we discuss here on The Plain Truth!
Let's dig in!
God had promised the Hebrew patriarch Abraham that through his descendants would come great nations and kings. The same promise was reaffirmed to his son Isaac and then to Isaac’s son Jacob. While Jacob slept on the ground in Canaan, he dreamt of a ladder extending to heaven with angels ascending and descending on it (Genesis 28:10-12).
King David, who wanted to build the Temple to the LORD was told by Nathan the Prophet that God did not want David to build the Temple because his hands were full of blood. However, the LORD loved David very much. I would declare as a side note, and with good reason, that Abraham, Jacob, Moses and David where the most favored by God.
This is from The Plain Truth's Red-Letter Bible: 2Samuel 7. “Furthermore, the LORD declares that He will make a house for you—a dynasty of kings! 12 'For when you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, your own offspring, and I will make his kingdom strong. 13He is the one who will build a house—a temple—for my name. And I will secure his royal throne forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. If he sins, I will correct and discipline him with the rod, like any father would do. 15But my favor will not be taken from him as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from your sight. 16Your house and your kingdom will continue before meb for all time, and your throne will be secure forever.’”
Again, in (Psalm 89:3-4). "I have made a covenant with my chosen; I have sworn to David my servant, 'I will establish your seed forever,
and build up your throne to all generations'"
What the Royals know
Queen Victoria knew the fact that, “the British royal family was descended from King David.” She also knew that she was sitting on the actual throne of God, (which is proven in the book The United States and Britain in Prophecy)—the very throne from which Christ is about to rule this Earth after He returns!
Yes, the throne that Charles will sit on will be the same throne that Christ will sit on when He returns! The Bible says so!
Sadly, most journalists and scholars are not interested in deeply understanding the truth about that throne. Most of them today are atheist anyway! On top of that, they are communist so much of the true history of that throne has been impugned, ridiculed and blotted out like in true communist fashion—except for a little remnant of believers which have been hidden from the population.
The Stone of Destiny
If you look under the throne of the Monarchs of England, you will see a stone and it is called the Stone of Destiny. It is the actual stone that Jacob was laying on when he had his vision of the 'stairway to heaven.'
According to the account given in Genesis (Chapter 28:10-22), Jacob was fleeing from his elder twin brother Esau, whom he had tricked out of receiving their father Isaac's blessing of the first-born. On his flight, Jacob rested at a city called Luz and used a group of stones as a pillow.
10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran.
11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.
12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.
13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham your fore-father, and the God of Isaac your father: the land where you liest, to you will I give it, and to your seed
14 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread throughout the world from the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.
15 And, behold, I am with you and your offspring, and will bless you wherever you and your children go, and will bring you all back again into this land; for I will not leave you ever, until I have done that which I have spoken to you.
When Jacob awoke, He exclaimed: "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!" The Great God of the universe, he realized, had been there with him where he slept.
Established Irish history indicates that the prophet Jeremiah visited Ireland several years after the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon. In his company were Tephi, heiress to the Davidic throne, and Baruch, the prophet’s personal assistant and scribe. He also brought several significant items to the Isles—including a stone the Irish Israelites subsequently named Lia-Fail or “Stone of Destiny.” According to E. Raymond Capt, this is all verified in the annals of Ireland.
“Many of the ancient Irish records, when making reference to an ‘eastern king’s daughter,’ also mention an old man; ‘a patriarch, a saint, a prophet,’ called ‘Ollam Fodhla,’ and his scribe-companion called ‘Simon Brug, Brach, Breack, Barech, Berach,’ as it is variously spelled [in the accounts]. Reportedly, they carried with them many ancient relics. Among these were a harp, an ark or chest, and a stone called, in Gaelic, ‘Lia-Fail’ (pronounced Leeah-Fail), meaning ‘Stone of Fate’ or ‘Hoary of Destiny.’ ”
Capt, along with numerous other researchers, proved the Lia-Fail is the same stone the patriarch Jacob anointed with oil at Bethel (Gen. 28:18-19). Capt writes: “In the ‘Chronicles of Eri’ by Milner, we find Eochaidh, the husband of Tea Tephi, associated with the stone Lia-Fail. The account is titled, ‘The Story of Lia-Fail,’ and states: ‘In the early days [of Israel’s sojourning] it [the stone] was carried about by priests on the march in the wilderness…Later, it was borne by the sea from east to west, to the extremity of the world [at] the sun’s going [a Roman expression referring to Britain]. Its bearers had resolved, at starting, to move on the face of the waters in search of their [Israelite] brethren. Shipwrecked on the coast of Ireland, they yet came safe with Lia-Fail…. Eochaidh sent a [wagon] for Lia-Fail, and he himself was placed thereon [to be crowned].”
As brought out in Chapter 12, Jeremiah was used by God to arrange a royal marriage between Tephi—the daughter of the last king of Judah—and Eochaidh, a Milesian-Zarahite prince of Ireland. This union not only healed the longstanding breach between the Pharez and Zarah lines of Judah, but it also preserved the line of Solomon and the Davidic throne.
But how is the “stone of destiny” related to maintaining the throne of David?
The stone was eventually housed in an area called Tara, at the “Fort of the Kings,” near Ulster. At Tara, every subsequent king of Ireland was crowned while seated (or standing) on Lia-Fail. John Fox writes that Irish history “reveals that a continuous succession of ancient Irish kings was crowned on Lia-Fail for 1083 years.”3 Around 503 AD, the Irish prince Fergus Mor McEre (Fergus the Great) was highly successful in his military efforts to annex parts of western Scotland. Fergus soon established a significant kingdom in Scotland and wanted to be officially recognized. As Capt notes, Fergus’ intention was to “style himself king of Scotland.” Understanding the significance of the “stone of destiny,” Fergus had Lia- Fail brought to Scotland for his coronation as king. The stone was never returned to Ireland but was kept in a sanctuary on the Isle of Iona. Like the Irish, every subsequent Scottish king was crowned on Lia-Fail (“Lea Gael” to the Scots). In 843 AD, the Scottish king Kenneth McAlpin moved the stone to Scone—hence, the stone’s later name “Stone of Scone.”
In 1296 AD—when King Edward I of England conquered the Scots and became “overlord” of Scotland—Lia-Fail was moved to Westminster Abbey in London. There, King Edward promptly had a special “coronation chair” built around the stone. The Scottish and English kingdoms were subsequently united in 1603 when James VI of Scotland was crowned at Westminster Abbey—becoming King James I of England.
As a result, every king or queen of Britain has since been crowned in that very chair, and all British monarchs are considered Scottish.
Ultimately, the relationship between the Irish, Scottish, and English royal lines is rather complex. However, it has been through these thrones that the Davidic royal line has been preserved. Moreover, it appears that the significance of the Davidic throne itself centers on the meaning behind the “Stone of Destiny.”
