THE HOLIEST                         Children of Abram (Abraham)...


Tablet Ten


Fulfillment of the promise of the scepter

<1>Before the fall of Jerusalem, many Prophets warned people that a great disaster would befall them because of their sins.  At the same time, most of these Prophets told that after a time in exile they would return to Judah.  <2>That shows how after each punishment God gives humanity another chance to repent and come back to Him and His Laws.


Prophecies of the coming of the Messiah

<3>After the Jews returned and later found out that their customs and beliefs were so diluted that they no longer had the original foundation, the people started to long for a Messiah to guide them to the right path.  That is when the coming of the Messiah was prophesied by many Prophets.

<4>So the expectation arose, and many prophecies came to the Jews in symbolic language.  They created expectations and concepts of how the Messiah should be and in what manner he would come.  Even in this aspect there was not a common agreement between different groups.


The Messiah comes

<5>Esa The Christ came as the expected Messiah.  He came in a humble way and preached the gospel of the Kingdom Of Heaven to the Jews.  But they expected him to come from the "cloud" and in the way that had been symbolically described by the Prophets.  <6>So the Jews, because of their concepts, did not accept him as the Expected One.

<7>He also taught differently than the beliefs of the Pharisees and scribes of the Jews.  This created a barrier for Jews to follow him.  The Jews were waiting for the Messiah to come and purify their religion, but when he came and tried to break those misconceptions and purify it, they started to resist him.  <8>That is always a great obstacle when any new teaching comes to humanity.  The concepts of previous religious leaders become a barrier to accepting the new teachings.

<9>The reasons for the difference in the teachings of the Prophets are twofold, for the same reasons: (1) because the mission of each Prophet is different, and (2) because the consciousness of the human is in a higher level at the time of the new teacher than when the previous Prophet came.  That is why Christ said, "You do not put new wine into the old skin."  <10>Also if the Messiah comes and teaches what the people already know, then what is the need for his coming?


The promise of the "scepter" to
Judah is fulfilled

<11>However, with the coming of Christ, the promise of the scepter of spiritual domination and kingly status (lawgiver) given to Judah was fulfilled.  Esa was from the tribe of Judah, and he came as the "King of the Jews."

<12>He was the "Shiloh" who ended the promise of the "scepter" to Judah.  The right of having this privilege no longer belonged to Judah, "The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be" (Gen. 49:10).


Christ "gathered the people"

<13>As it was said before, "the House of Israel" moved toward the west and northwest of Europe.  Indeed, that is where Christianity flourished and gathered all the lost Children of Israel under one religion.  They were the "lost children of Israel" who were gathered, as it was prophesied by Israel, "...and unto him shall the gathering of the people be" (Gen. 49:10).

<14>Also in the gospel of St. John we read:


And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Esa would die for that nation [Jews];

And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad.

(John 11:51-52)

<15>So, Esa should have been crucified "for that nation" (the House of Judah) and also to "gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad."

<16>As it was said, in addition to other purposes, Christ came to disqualify the Jews from being chosen people; what happened to the Jews and their purpose in God's Plan is explained in the book The House of Judah (Jews).

<17>Also, he came to "gather together the people" or as it was prophesied here, to "gather together in one the children of God" -- not all the children of God, but "that were scattered abroad."

<18>"And not for that nation only" but for "the children of God that were scattered abroad" from that nation (Children of Israel).  Who were those who were scattered abroad and were lost?  They were the House of Israel.  They were the ones whom God had predicted would be scattered from the seed of Jacob (Gen. 28:14).

<19>It was these people who were scattered abroad that would be blessed with the unconditional promise given to Abraham when he obeyed God even to sacrifice his son for him.  This promise will be in effect to the end of the last age.  This is also revealed through Prophet Muhammad:


Remember when God told Esa: I will exalt those who follow you above disbelievers to the Day of Judgment...

(Koran Ali'Imran 55)

<20>The Day of Judgment is the beginning of the next age in which the true spiritual understanding will dawn and the age of enlightenment will start (resurrection).

<21>So Christ fulfilled his mission even if it appears that the Jews did not accept him.  But God keeps His Promises in ways that humans cannot understand easily.  The reason is very simple, because humans do not look at His Universe as He sees it.  He has a complete picture of everything and is guiding the whole universe toward its goal.  However, the human, because of his narrowness of mind (caused by concepts of "mine" and "thine," as "my country," "my religion," "my history," etc.) only sees a small part of the truth.  That is why the work of the Lord seems strange to humanity.

<22>Also, as God has declared in the book of The Revelation (the last book in the Bible), His Work will remain a mystery until the time of the seventh Angel:


But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,...the mystery of God should be finished,...

(Rev. 10:7)
