There are many who acknowledge that the biblical Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, son of Jacob/Israel, are represented by Great Britain and America. They, like Joseph, have it backwards, but Jacob knew exactly what he was doing.
Finding our Ancestral Roots has become a pastime and an important aspect of life for many lately with the availability of DNA tests and programs to help people reconnect with the roots of their Family Tree. But most can only go back a few generations and a few hundred years at best from their own with which to connect. But what if you could go back millennia? Back to the beginning? Back to the roots!
Ancient Roots of Worship
Looking back at the ways of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Assyria, we find many of those ways still being followed by modern-day people to this day. They’re not aware of their roots. But these practices can provide important clues for those who are searching and want to know their own roots.
The Resurrection from the dead is the concept of coming back to life after death. It is a doctrine of the dead!
Many ancient cultures including Egypt and Babylon obsess over the dead and their funerary practices! They sacrifice to the dead, commune with and seek to for protection and favors. Their practices include veneration to and worship of the dead. With repetitious prayers, they cry out to and petition the dead thinking they’ll be heard. Some even cut and paint themselves in remembrance of the dead. Their gods must be out to lunch or asleep because they never respond!
This article will answer the question of “Apostolic Succession,” what it is, who has claimed it for themselves, and to whom it rightfully belongs.
Jesus warned to watch out for “false prophets/teachers who come to you as wolves in sheep’s clothing.” The Book of Revelation states that the “whole world” has been deceived by a certain religious entity who is the “Mother” of them all. Let’s take a closer look at this and see what it all means.
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?
In the recently published Guardian’s list of the 100 best non-fiction books, the King James Bible comes in right under the wire at the 100 spot! Amazing! The English-speaking, Anglo-Saxon peoples on both sides of the pond are enamored with the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible. And why not? It’s their heritage! In fact the Bible is the best-selling and most widely distributed book of all time. Jerome’s Catholic Vulgate version was the first to be printed on the Gutenberg printing press introduced into the “Holy Roman Empire” around 1440 AD. It actually put the axe to the roots of Roman Catholicism since it has nothing to do with idolatrous Rome. The authorized King James Version was published in 1611 AD addressed to God’s people, the descendants of Israel. Many people have lost their lives and had unspeakable things done to them (i.e. The Inquisition) over this book throughout history.
The article states: “The first New England settlements always championed the use of the Geneva Bible, a text that appealed to separatist congregations. However, by a remarkable paradox, towards the end of the 17th century, the King James Bible had come to be treasured as much by Americans as by the British.”
Halloween (“Holy Eve”), All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and the Day of the Dead will be here shortly. But what are the roots of these special Days of the Dead? When we trace them all the way back to their origin, we find they came from ancient Egypt when the people were caused to worship and make sacrifices to their dead Pharaoh, their “Commander-in-chief”. The name translated ‘Egypt’ in the Bible is actually ‘Mitzraim’ which was one of the sons of Noah’s son, Ham. His other sons were Canaan, Cush and Phut. All these are the root of oppression, false religions upon the earth. Starting from their departure from the Ark of Noah, they all united under Nimrod, Cush’a son.

Jesus said, “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with …the cares of this life, and so that day come upon you in unawareness. For as a snare it will come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Adam.” In Matthew 24:21 he says the end time will be a time of Tribulationnot seen since the beginning of the world unto this time nor ever shall be again.
In the Book of Deuteronomy 4:29-31, Moses says when you see these things happening, “If from there you shall seek the LORD your God, you shall find Him, if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things are come upon you, even in the latter days, if you turn to the LORD your God and will be obedient to His voice; (For the LORD your God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake you, neither destroy you, nor forget the Covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.”
