The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a law-giver from between his feet, until Shiloh comes, to whom the Gentiles look forward.1
Jesus was of Judah, and Shiloh was not Jesus. This verse shows that Lawgivers will be only of Judah until Shiloh comes as a Lawgiver for the Gentiles. That includes Jesus, who was sent only to the children of Israel by his own testimony2, and explicitly does not include Shiloh, who is not of Judah, and is sent to the nations of the Gentiles as a Lawgiver.
Jesus was not sent to the nations as a Lawgiver, but to Israel as their Messiah, with the Good News that Israel had promised to spread to the nations of the Gentiles, thus fulfilling the Law of Moses — it was Israel as a nation that was sent to the Gentiles, as bearers of the Good News, not Jesus himself. That Good News told about a new Law yet to come, it was not itself a new Law, and Jesus affirmed the Law of Moses and explicitly told the children of Israel that God’s Kingdom would be taken from them and given to a people who would bear its fruits.
That definitely was not Pauline Christianity or any successor of Jesus, as Jesus himself said.
It is virtually impossible to read and comprehend the Israeli-altered Scripture without taking into account everything it says and identifying the prophecies that had not been fulfilled at the time of Jesus’ departure, and knowing what has since happened in the Promised Land — including a thousand years, in Jerusalem and the Promised Land that came after Jesus had long gone, which are missing from European and other Western history books.
God did not disappear from the Promised Land when the Romans occupied Palestine, and the prophecy did not disappear or change focus from the Promised Land when Paul went to Greece and Rome. Today’s Pauline preachers and doppelganger pseudo-prophets look at the Promised Land only until the destruction of the Second Temple, and after that look only at the Roman Empire and never at the Promised Land.
This is because Shiloh came — in the Promised Land, after Jesus — as prophesied in Scripture, “suddenly to his temple”3, which does not describe Jesus, “from Mount Paran…with ten thousands of saints, from his right hand a fiery Law for them,” which also does not describe Jesus, who “rose up from Seir”4. Those prophecies had not been fulfilled at the time of Jesus’ departure.
“The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty; they met with their bread him that fled”5. That does not describe Jesus or anyone before him.
“For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war” — fulfilled literally with physical drawn swords and bent bows and an ongoing war, which never happened with Jesus — and “Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail” — which is obviously not Jesus.
“And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished” — and literally a third of the nobility of Kedar died in a pitched physical battle on the ground, less than a year later, but not at all during the time of Jesus or before his time. Shiloh, migrating from Kedar to Tema, spending three full days and three full nights in the belly of the earth, and transforming the Promised Land and making it new, including a “new Jerusalem” sent down from the heavens, all exactly as prophesied in Scripture, none of which resembles anything that Jesus did or was expected to do or had happened before his time. Biblical prophecies for which the Bible itself shows no fulfilment at all.
All of these prophecies in Scripture about the Messenger of the Covenant3, which Jesus did not fulfil in any way at all6, was fulfilled to the letter, exactly as Scripture describes them, with no ambiguity or need for “interpretation” whatsoever. No mystery to it at all, it happened in this world, in physical reality, exactly as Scripture said it would — the same Scripture that does not record the fulfillment of those prophecies.
But you people expect to hear it from the Jews? Are you daft? All you get from those sources is falsity and treachery. Charged to deliver the Good News that Jesus brought, they falsified everything before he even arrived to point to their fraud against you. And after he had left, who do you suppose wrote the history? The scribes and Pharisees wrote it, and Constantine got it from Paul’s conveniently-collected writings, and canonized it as Christianity, a “new religion.” Jesus did not bring any “new religion”.
Jesus drove the money changers out of the Temple. But read Malachi 3:5 where it says:
“I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside a sojourner”
These are all very explicit in those terms with Shiloh, the Messenger of the Covenant, who came.
His people “pray shoulder to shoulder”; seek refuge in the Name of God; gather for pilgrimage every year, saying “At Your service, O God, here I am at Your service” — all exactly as described in detail by Scripture but nowhere fulfilled before the departure of Jesus.
So you can play with speculative freemasonry all you want, and it will not lead you to Jabal Tariq — Gibraltar — or the British for anything other than perpetual deception and pie-in-the-sky “not of this world” mysteries with no relevance to liberty and success in this life and the next.
And Genesis 49:10 had nothing to do with Jesus. See Genesis 9:27, after the time of Shem. In Israel there is no peace, says the Sovereign Lord.
