Another difficult night for me as I continued to pray about and ponder over what the Holy Spirit would have me do with the mini-mountain of research I have collected over the past two decades. This morning I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve been given at least a partial answer to that question.
It occurs to me that there is a common denominator to the scores of materials available on these topics that I’m going to be sharing about, and that is DISAGREEMENT. Or, as some might prefer to think of it: CONTRADICTION. For every “statement of fact” and every scenario touted as “absolute truth,” there can be found — with the help of the Internet — someone who has published an opposing viewpoint, also based on their interpretation of “fact” and “truth” (including truth presented in Scripture and interpreted by individual, imperfect humans).
As uncomfortable as it may be to admit, for Bible scholars with many letters of accomplishment following their highly regarded names, and for prophecy “experts” who have thoroughly studied and “decoded” the Scriptures, and for authors and speakers who have chosen to walk to the edge of the proverbial “cliff” and boldly declare to the world that their perspective is the one and only “correct” one … somebody has to be wrong. Or at the very least, each person has discovered only one tiny piece of the puzzle — the big picture — as God sees it. It’s as simple as that.
Please keep that in mind as you consider my input from this moment on. I am not a prophet nor a scholar. I’m merely a servant of my Lord Jesus Christ, struggling to walk alongside Him without running ahead or falling behind.
So … with that said, I will begin presenting to you what I have come to see as the golden thread which connects the plot of scripture from Genesis through Revelation. In my humble opinion, it is not being fully considered by many who are publishing commentary concerning the identity of the coming global ruler, described by John in Revelation 13 and referred to by the prophet Daniel (Daniel 9:27) and by Jesus (Matthew 24:15). We must not take for granted the importance of THE MESSIANIC BLOODLINE — the certificate of authenticity — that would be key to identifying the future Savior, promised by God at the fall of mankind:
“So the Lord God said to the serpent [Satan], ‘Because you have done this,
Cursed are you above all livestock
and all wild animals!
You will crawl on your belly
and you will eat dust
all the days of your life.
And I will put enmity
between you and the woman,
and between your offspring [or seed] and hers;
he will crush your head,
and you will strike his heel.”
(Genesis 3:14-15, NIV)
Matthew wrote about the bloodline in his testimony. You can find it in Matthew 1:1-16. Luke wrote about the bloodline in his carefully researched account. You can find it in Luke 3:23-37.
Again, there are those who insist that the two genealogies are “contradictory” because they are not exactly the same. The family trees do, however, have one specific entry in common: Jesse was the father of David (Matthew 1:6; Luke 3:31-32).
Jesus was a direct descendant — carried the bloodline and DNA — of David. Or, as they said in Bible times, Jesus was “THE SON OF DAVID.”
David is central to Jewish theology and the following article will give you an idea of how very important the patriarch is to many of his descendants even now in the nation of Israel …
‘Handing Over David’s Tomb Rewrites History in Israel’
Deputy Transport Minister Tzipi Hotovely (Likud) sent an urgent letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday, demanding that he prevent the rumored transfer of David’s Tomb to Catholic hands.
Hotovely’s letter surfaces following reports of an agreement between Israel and the Vatican which would transfer ownership of David’s Tomb on Mount Zion in Jerusalem to the Church.
Hotovely noted that the Tomb is a sacred place for the Jewish people – and warned the Prime Minister not to make the same mistakes made regarding the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site, which is in the hands of the Jordanian Waqf.
“It is inconceivable that this place will be transferred to foreign hands, such the Torahs and the Star of David will be swallowed in a sea of crosses,” the Deputy Minister wrote.
”Transferring the rights to the gravesite of David to Christian hands would be similar to Moshe Dayan’s decision to entrust the keys to the Temple Mount to the Jordanian Waqf.”
Hotovely warned that David’s Tomb, like the Temple Mount, could become restricted to Jewish access and prayer – and has serious political and religious implications.
“David’s Tomb is also evidence of Jewish sovereignty in ancient Israel,” she declared. “Handing over the grave of the great leaders of the ancient Jewish state, is in fact an agreement with the Palestinians – who rewrite history and challenge the legitimacy of the State of Israel.”
Concerns over a possible transfer of the property have been raised multiple times over the past several months. Earlier this month, an Israeli diplomatic source told Arutz Sheva that the Israeli government has no intention of transferring control over the site to the Church.
However, Rabbi Yaakov Sevilia, an activist for King David’s Tomb, told Arutz Sheva that there is a deal in the works – which would see David’s Tomb given to Christians, and the Temple Mount to Muslims. He cited journalist Gulio Meotti, who contributes regularly to Arutz Sheva, as the source for this knowledge.
Next I will share some key points about the false bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalene — the Merovingian bloodline — to help my readers understand how Satan has been building a case against Christ since the moment he learned that the Son of God had risen from the dead. It’s important because so many people STILL BELIEVE IT!

a son is given to us;
dominion will rest on his shoulders,
and he will be given the name
Pele-Yo‘etz El Gibbor
[Wonder of a Counselor, Mighty God,
Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace],

to secure it and sustain it
through justice and righteousness
henceforth and forever.
The zeal of Adonai–Tzva’ot
