Amid the many references to Scripture by the so-called ministers this morning at the inauguration ceremony, they were all misapplied, but one in particular was misquoted by the newly sworn President Trump, Psalm 133.
He said: “The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity… And most importantly, we will be protected by God.”
Here’s where he was quoting:
“A Song of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.”
While Trump used the term “God’s people” instead of “brethren” he obviously has no idea who those people are! This is referring to a specific people. Specifically the twelve tribes of the House of Israel! Y’hoshua said “I am not sent but to the lost sheep of the House of Israel” (Matt 15:24) These are the “brethren” spoken of. In the Book of Revelation there are 144,000, which according to chapter 7, that’s 12,000 of each of the twelve tribes of the House of Israel, who stand on Mount Zion/Sion. That’s where the blessings of God come to rest. These are they who keep the Commandments of God and the Truth of Y’hoshua. They are the only ones who enjoy the protection of God, no one else.
