And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.
The Light of the Moon
The Light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun, and the Light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound… And you shall have a song in the night… And the LORD shall cause His glorious Word to be heard.
(2) Isa 40:1-3 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare [appointed time] is accomplished, that her iniquity pardoned: The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness: Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the dessert a highway for our God.
(3) Isa 40:4 “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low: the crooked shall be made straight, rough places plain:”
Many are anticipating the ‘epiphany’ or manifestation of the Messiah in these times of Tribulation. Christ himself revealed how he would manifest and to whom. This article will show the false and the true.
The word ‘epiphany’ is one of Greek origin. It is defined as; 1. to manifest or to show 2. an appearance or manifestation of a divine being 3. a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something (as when something ‘dawns on you’, you suddenly or slowly perceive or understand).
The Jewish people have a custom to leave a vacant seat and a place set at the Passover table for the Prophet Elijah. With the sound of a knock, the children run to the door and say, “Elijah, is that you?” When he comes, they expect him to be a herald of the coming of the Messiah, to resolve all unanswered questions concerning the Law of Moses, and to deliver God’s people into that Land promised by God to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and to their offspring. This includes all twelve tribes of the House of Israel.
The Arthurian Legend
Similarly, in the Arthurian Legend of the Round Table, there is an empty seat awaiting the rightful king, being the Messiah, the Branch of David, aka King Arthur. He, in pulling the sword from the stone, will thus become the High King over all the House of Israel (Gen 49:8-10). This legend is tied to the story of the Holy Grail, the Last Supper and Joseph of Arimathea, who founded Glastonbury in Britain after the death of Christ.
But how are two Legends tied together?
