He Comes As . . . The Messiah (Jewish Prophecies)
The Nature of The Messiah
The noun moshiach (translated as messiah) means "Anointed One." In Judaic texts, the term messiah was used for all kings, high priests, and certain other patriarchs. In the Tanak, moshiach is used 38 times: 29 Israelite kings, six high priests, two patriarchs and once for Cyrus The Great. Not once is the word messiah used in reference to the awaited Savior. Even in the apocalyptic book of Daniel, the only time messiah is mentioned is in connection to a murdered high priest. This means that the title of messiah has been used for the kings of Israel and the priests. As we see from Maitreya's genealogy, He is both the son of David and the son of Aaron. This gives Him complete right to the title of Moshiach or Messiah. In this section we will see how more specifically He fulfills many expectations in the Bible about the Messiah.
The first point that needs to be made before we begin looking at how Maitreya fulfills the prophecies, is that we need to understand that Scripture tells us that there will literally be two Messiahs. The first Messiah, Scripture tells us, is going to come to Judah and the Children of Israel. This first Messiah is about Esa the Christ who fulfilled many prophecies in the Old Testament. Christ fulfilled prophecies about a Messiah who was going to come and bring the Grace of God to humanity by going all the way to the cross. Despite many evidences that Esa is indeed the Messiah and fulfiller of many Hebrew prophecies, there were many He did not fulfill and were prophesied for the second Messiah (anointed son of David), who according to prophecy is going to be named Joseph and come to the peoples of Ephraim (America). By understanding that these are two very different Messiahs whose prophetic past merge, as both are the descendent from King David, we can better see how Maitreya indeed is the Messiah promised to come to the Jews.
The Branch of David
Maitreya fulfills the Jewish expectations of Messiah in the highest degree, as He truly is a direct descendant of King David through the family of Solomon, David's son (1 Chronicles 22:9-l0) as we can see in His genealogy.
"And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, who shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel and gather together..." (Isaiah 11:1-5, 9-10, 12)
“And there shall come forth a Rod out of the stem of Jesse,” means that the genealogy of the Messiah is going to be of the tribe of Judah, specifically through Jesse and David. Also, when it uses words like “branch,” “rod,” or “stem,” it probably means that the Messiah will not come directly from the seed of David, but from David's seed a branch of it will host the Messiah. In the case of Maitreya's genealogical tree, it seems the branch that stems off of the direct line is through the Persians, specifically the Persian Monarch.
According to the above Scripture, the Messiah will have the Spirit of the Lord upon Him, which includes understanding and knowledge. This is clearly speaking about Revelation brought by Maitreya, because it is in THOTH that we clearly see the evidences of true Divine Knowledge and guidance. Also THOTH establishes the system of hierarchal government called Mount Zion and Zion (“My holy mountain”), and through its infrastructure the “earth shall be full of knowledge of the Lord…” and causes the nations to assemble. In the prophecies we are going to see the theme of peace and unity in the nations, and while these events have not yet occurred, if we investigate THOTH and its teachings we will find the tools needed to establish God's Will amongst the nations as He has promised in all the Scriptures of the world.
"Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. (Zechariah 3:8-9) "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it." (Revelation 2:17). "And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof." (Revelation 5:5)
To further clarify the point, THOTH and the revelation of the Seven Seals of The Greatest Sign have been brought by Maitreya. The first verse signifies that we are talking about the Messiah and that a stone will be laid before Him, and the stone will have seven eyes, which remove iniquity. The second verse shows this stone again and explains that those who become a Son of God can achieve it. The stone is the new name; the seven eyes on the stone are the steps of the Eternal Divine Path, which lead us to Pure Consciousness (Heaven) and out of iniquity. Maitreya explains the meaning of the stone, confirming His Messiah-ship:
"'And will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written.' The white stone is the stone of purity (purified consciousness) and knowledge of God not intellectual knowledge, but intuitive. The experience of eating of the hidden manna (nectar flows through the throat to the heart chakra) will bring that relationship with God where there is no mistake, you know that He exists. The 'new name' is The Word, which is a vibration within you." (THOTH, Revelation Of The Revelation T 5, V 24-25)
Clearly, we can see that Maitreya is the fulfillment of these prophecies.
"And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord: Even he shall build the temple of the Lord; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne, and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both." (Zechariah 6:12-13).
One of the prophecies prominent about the Messiah is that He will bring the Temple. It is unclear as to what Temple. Does this mean a replica of the Temple built by Solomon, or does it mean the Temple in the visions of Ezekiel? The answer really is neither. While Maitreya has brought the Temple and its design, He has brought The Word, or the Sacred Name of the Father and the Son.This Word was initially only pronounced once in the Temple by the High Priest in The Holiest Of The Holies at the center of the temple. So the most important part of the Temple, the purpose for which it was built is so that the Priests could pronounce the Name of God in The Holiest Of the Holies. In regards to this, Maitreya has built the Temple, because in THOTH, (The Holiest Of The Holies) and by following the Path it reveals (The Eternal Divine Path), The Word will be revealed (through four initiations in the Mission).
"Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them; so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their childrens children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever." (Ezekiel 37: 23-25)
" Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. " (Ezekiel 37:26)
Again we see that it is Maitreya (from the branch of David) who is prophesied to bring peace to humanity. There are many other prophecies that discuss God bringing peace to the nations, but these specifically identify that the bringer of peace is going to be from the tribe of Judah and a son of David. Since Maitreya fulfills the prophecies about being a son of David, He is a possible candidate to bring about a covenant of peace. We can be assured that He is the fulfiller of all these prophecies, because in THOTH, He explains the system by which God will establish His justice and peace (Mount Zion and Zion) as well as He reveals the understanding necessary for the Paravipras to accelerate societys growth and establish the Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth (The Kingdom Of Heaven On Earth).
Over a period of time the facilitating body will be. It is this facilitating body that will eventually create the Communities of Light. From these communities, the structural hierarchy or Mount Zion will be created. It is then that, eventually, Gods Kingdom on earth will come, and subsequently bring God's equity, justice, and peace to humanity as promised in all the Scriptures (Isaiah 2:4,9:6; Ezekiel 39:9; Zechariah 14:9, Revelation 20).
"'Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS." (Jeremiah 23:5-6). "In those days, and at that time, I will cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord our righteousness. For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually." (Jeremiah 33: 15-18).
In the writings of Jeremiah, he prophetically speaks about the Branch of David (Maitreya) and discusses many of the points that we have already looked at, such as the creation of prosperity and righteousness in all the earth. He also reveals the name of the Prophet-King, who He calls, "The Lord Our Righteousness." The name itself is a play on the name of Zedekiah, and because it is a play on words, the name Zedekiah itself is not the name of the Prophet-King, but the meaning of the name will be the same. The meaning is translated as, The Lord Our Righteousness.
Since most Hebrew names are attributes of God, the name Zedekiah is no different, and in meaning it is similar to the names given to Maitreya. Maitreya's names include Emmanuel with the meaning "God Is with Us," and He is also called Vigi Kumar, which means "the righteous," or the "the vigorous," or "the vital," or "the young prince."
The second point that must be noted, is in the 33rd chapter of Jeremiah specifically which states, "David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings,"... Here God makes a promise that from the time of David until the time of the Messiah and beyond, that the throne of David and subsequently the Levitical priesthood will never lack a King/High priest.
As we saw in other pages in these Prophecies, the line of David and the line of Aaron (the Levites) intermarried during the generations of the exilarchs. We follow the generations of the King/Priest, until Nader Shah (Abbas Khan), and after his death it would seem that there was no longer a king on the throne and thus it would seem that God had failed to keep the promises that He made to Jeremiah.
God had also made this promise in 1 Chronicles: "Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; . . . for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days. He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his Father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel forever." (1Chronicles 22:9-10).
However, in the genealogy we see that the generations of the throne of David continue until Maitreya, who now sits on the throne as the rightful heir, as High Priest, and as bringer of God's Kingdom and the White Stone of Salvation (The Greatest Sign and The Eternal Divine Path). Clearly Maitreya is the only one who can fulfill these prophecies.
"And it shall come to pass, that everyone that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles." (Zechariah 14:16)
This is the final prophecy that we should look at to complete this section. The above verse is referring to all humanity coming up to the Mountain of the Lord (Mount Zion) and is discussing the same event as explained in Isaiah chapter 2.
What is significant about this verse is that all humanity is going to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles. The Mission of Maitreya celebrates this Feast, as mandated in Leviticus 23, every year exactly as commanded by God. Maitreya has guided humanity back to the Holy Days revealed by God, and as all humanity eventually accepts this Message, with it will come the fulfillment of this prophecy.
THE PRINCE OF PEACE
Isaiah is not the only one to have such visions of a Day of Judgment. St. John the Revelator gives a similar scenario for the latter days. John, in chapter nineteen of Revelation, has a vision of a hero on a white horse, who, "judges and makes warout of His mouth." This is to say that the mighty hero will fight armed only with the Word of God.
Isaiah gives a clue of who the mighty hero is, as pictured by St. John:
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever."(Isaiah 9:6-7).
Most Christians believe that the person spoken of in Isaiah chapter nine is Christ. Often this verse is read during the Christmas season because it reads, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given," but these verses have nothing to do with Christs first Manifestation! I have several reasons why Christ could not have been the Manifestation spoken of in Isaiah chapter nine:
1. "The government shall be on his shoulder."
Christ had no control of the government, nor did He make any attempt at establishing a governmental system to create peace. To my knowledge Christ only ever said one thing about government, "...Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesars; and unto God the things that are Gods. (Matthew 22:21). This is hardly the fulfillment of Isaiahs words! Maitreya, however, has given the blueprint of God's" Kingdom on earth.
2. "His name shall be called . . . The Prince of Peace."Christ made it clear in Matthew that He did not come for peace, and certainly not an everlasting peace. Christ made His mission crystal clear: "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.” (Matthew 10:34). Again, for obvious reasons, Christ was not even attempting to fulfill the words of Isaiah the prophet. Maitreya is called “Kumar, Prince” and His teaching is toward the "Peace" on earth!
3. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given . . ."
If Christ was not the Prince of Peace, then who is (was)? The answer is found in the prophecies of Isaiah and St. Johns Revelation. As readers of the Bible, we understand that the Prince of Peace and the Peace of Isaiah chapter two, are parallel verses to the peace and triumph in Revelation chapter twenty. This is to say, that at the time of Christs return, He will fulfill the words of Isaiah.
Yet, Isaiah tells us how Christ will return, He will do so as a baby. Isaiah wrote: "For unto us a child is born." Isaiah was not writing about the child born of a virgin birth in Isaiah 7:14 (who was in reference to Christ). Isaiah was writing about a different child who would be born and establish PEACE. The children who are born prophetically in Isaiah seven and then nine are two different children, one who will bring salvation and the other who will bring peace. So the first clue about who will bring peace is that He will be born into the world, just like any other child.
4. "The Lord shall . . . recover the remnant of His people . . ."
The next clue given by Isaiah is found in chapter eleven when Isaiah again prophesied about the coming of world peace, and the Prince of Peace. Isaiah wrote:
"And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set His hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be leftAnd he shallassemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth" (Isaiah 11:11-14).
The second sign for the coming of the Prince of Peace is when Israel is gathered back together in one place, as we have already seen. By all accounts the establishing of the Jewish state was accomplished in the year 1948 A.D., so it was just before this date that the Child of Peace would be born and given to humanity.Maitreya was born in Persia on November 8, 1944. This was just before the gathering of Israel after World War II. This is the fulfillment of Gods promises that the Prince of Peace would be born into the world, before the reformation of the state of Israel.
