The Sceptre of Israel
The Scepter of Yisrayah

Okay, here is something truly amazing that I have never seen appreciated or mentioned. Let me briefly explain some background here, then I'll get on with it. You are likely to be amazed and flabbergasted.

Esther 4:11 All the king's servants, and the people of the king's provinces, do know that whosoever is not called, whether man or woman, will come to the king into the inner court, there is one law for him, that he is put to death, except those to whom the king holds out the golden sceptre, that he may live. 5:2 It was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, she obtained favor in his sight. The king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre.
In many ancient cultures the right of the inheritance, and of the sceptre, would pass from a king to his eldest son. Reuben was Yisrayah's firstborn, but he lost the inheritance, the priesthood, and the sceptre when he defiled his father's wife (Genesis 35:22, 37:2, 49:3-4). The inheritance passed to Yahusef [Joseph], the priesthood passed to Levi, and the sceptre passed to Yahudah [Judah]. That is why Yaacob [Jacob, Israel, Yisrayah] claimed Yahusef's first two sons as his own sons, so that Yahusef would inherit twice what his brothers inherited (Genesis 48:5,22). That is how there came to be thirteen tribes of Yisrayah, when he had only twelve sons. The sceptre is the symbol of kingship.

King David ruled the entire nation of Yisrayah. Because king Solomon sinned, the nation was split in two. The northern nation retained the name of Israel [Yisrayah], and inherited Yahusef's inheritance. The southern nation became known as Judah [Yahudah], and retained the sceptre. Strictly speaking, Jews are descendants of Yahudah the man, son of Yisrayah [Jacob, Yaacob]. More broadly, all citizens of the nation of Judah, which also includes the tribes of Levi and Benjamin, can be called Jews. The citizens of the northern nation, Israel (the "Lost Ten Tribes"), are NOT Jews. All Jews are Israelites by descent, but not all Israelites are Jews.

Okay, here we go. This stuff is really important:
Jasher 36:15 At that time the portion of birthright, together with the kingly and priestly offices, was removed from the sons of Reuben, for he profaned his father's bed. The birthright was given to Yahusef [Joseph], the kingly office to Yahudah [Judah], and the priesthood to Levi, because Reuben defiled his father's bed.

Genesis 49:10 The sceptre [scepter, tribal staff of authority and kingship] will not depart from Yahudah [Judah], nor a lawgiver [judge, ruler, governor] from between his feet [his descendants], until Shiloh come; and to Him [Shiyloh] will be the obedience of the peoples [nations].

Genesis 49:10 The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler's staff from between his feet, until Shiloh comes. To him will be the obedience of the peoples.
Shiyloh is the Messiyah [Messiah]. It is pronounced as: shee-low. When He arrived, what was left of the sinful nation of Judah lost the sceptre. The Jews knew ahead of time this would happen, and when. And when they did indeed lose the sceptre, they still refused to admit that Yahshua was the Messiyah. They wanted to kill the Messiyah, so they had to take Him to the Roman authorities for permission. They told Pilate: "It is not lawful for us to put any man to death", thereby admitting the sceptre was gone from them. Well before this point in time YHWH had already divorced and dispersed the northern nation. So that at this time the nation of Judah was all that remained of the original nation of Yisrayah. The reason they are called Israel and Judah instead of Yisrayah and Yahudah is because they chose to remove Yahweh's name from everything.
Yahchanan [John] 19:12 Upon this Pilate sought to release Him. But the Jews [Yahudim] cried out, saying: If you release this man, you are not Caesar's friend. Everyone who makes himself a king speaks against Caesar [king of the Roman Empire]. 13 When Pilate heard these words, he brought Yahshua [Jesus] out, and sat down on the judgment-seat at a place called The Pavement (in Hebrew, Gabbatha). 14 Now it was the Preparation of [day before] the passover, it was about the sixth hour. He said to the Jews: Behold, your King! 15 They cried out: Away with Him, away with Him, impale Him! Pilate said to them: Shall I impale your King? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar. 16 Then he [Pilate] delivered Him [Yahshua] to them [the Jews] to be impaled [crucified on a stake].

The Acts of Pontius Pilate IX:3 The Jews cried out, saying: We know our king, even Caesar, not Yahshua.

Gospel of Nazarenes 82:4 Pilate said to them: You take Him, and crucify Him, for I find no fault in Him.
The Roman said: 'Here is your King'. He did not say: 'Caesar is your king'. Here is the most astonishing thing: The leaders of the Jews said: "We have no king but Caesar". In this way they REJECTED both YHWH and His Son as their kings. The people could have objected, but no, they willingly went right along with their leaders. Yahweh gave us free will, and that is the choice they made. By rejecting YHWH the Jewish nation GAVE AWAY the sceptre of Yisrayah!! Then they murdered Him who had the right to the sceptre. So the sceptre went back to YHWH, because at that moment THERE WAS NO LONGER A NATION OF YISRAYAH. Did anyone ever tell you that?

Around 200BC the Jews began to reject Yahwah in earnest. Since then we have the nation of Israel. No longer is it the Yisrayah of Yahwah. Now they follow Isis, Ra, and El (Osiris). They are no longer Yahudim, they are now Jews.

Also notice the under-appreciated verse 16 (and Matthew 27:24 "you see to it"). Nowadays these Jews all claim it was the Romans who murdered the Savior. John 19:16 shows that the Roman (Pilate) delivered Him to the Jews, and THEY murdered Him. See what I am saying? He was murdered by the Jews, but the Jews were now Romans by their own choice (gentiles, not Israelites); because at that time the sceptre had ALREADY passed from Yahudah: the Jews rejected YHWH as their king, and they claimed to be Romans. They gave away the sceptre, and the right to be called Israelites, when they said they have 'only one king: Caesar'.
Matthew 27:22 Pilate says to them: What then will I do to Yahshua who is called Messiyah? They all said: Let Him be impaled. 23 And he said: Why, what evil did he do? But they cried out exceedingly, saying: Let Him be impaled. 24 So when Pilate saw that he prevailed nothing, but rather that a tumult was arising, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this righteous man. You see to it. 25 All the people answered, and said: His blood is on us, and on our children.
The Roman wanted to release Yahshua as a free man who had committed no crime (Acts 3:13 whom you delivered up, and denied before the face of Pilate, when he had determined to release Him. 14 But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, 15 and killed the Prince of life). The Jewish multitudes insisted that he be murdered. They accepted His blood on themselves and their children. So they were all released from citizenship in the nation of Yisrayah. They have been persecuted ever since.

Deuteronomy 8:19 It will be, if you forget Yahweh your Father [which they did], and walk after other gods [which they did: Lord God and Easter], serve them, and worship them, I testify against you today you will surely perish [which they did]. 20 As the nations Yahweh made to perish before you, so you will perish, because you would not hearken to the voice of Yahweh your Father. Was there a sign? All the gospels relate that when Yahshua died, there was very great darkness across the land. And here is the great quote: "In that hour the lintel of the temple of Jerusalem was rent in two." Yahweh ended His nation.

Only one man had the right to the sceptre, Yahushua Ben Yahusef [AKA: Jesus son of Joseph], but He was dead. Murdered, and lying in his grave. So the nation of Yisrayah was ended. Stunning! The northern half of the nation was destroyed, divorced, and washed back into the world long before. Now the southern half of the nation was also divorced, and given over to the Romans who possessed them. They perished, just as Yahweh said they would. There was no longer a nation of Yisrayah!! They all became gentiles by their own choice, and remain so to this day!

So three days later YHWH raised His Son from the grave, and He gave Him the sceptre of Yisrayah. A New Yisrayah was begun in heaven, a new nation comprising one man (just as the original nation was at one time composed of only one man: Abraham). The new nation of Yisrayah are those who love YHWH and Yahshua, and who obey their commandments (as did Abraham).

Here's a famous verse: Proverbs 30:4 "Who has ascended up into heaven, and descended? Who gathers the wind in His fists? Who bound the waters in His garment? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is His Name, and what is His Son's name, if you know?" Most people think His Son's name is 'Jesus' They are horribly mistaken!

The sceptre was given to Shiyloh [Shiloh, which means peace, prosperity, and tranquility]. Shiyloh is the NAME of The Word (the Son, the Messiyah, our Savior), who is now one with Yahshua. Yahshua the human was descended from king David, so the prophecy that Yahudah [the man] will possess the sceptre forever has come true. But the nation of Yahudah is now gone.

There is NO LONGER a nation of Yahudah [Judah]! That means there is NO LONGER a nation of Yisrayah [Israel] on the earth! YHWH divorced and rejected them all because of their sins. They refused to obey Him. They rejected Him and His Son, and accepted Roman rule instead. The Romans had removed Judah's right to rule, and to administer death sentences. Jews through the centuries have almost unanimously known that means their sceptre is lost. At this link to Blue Letter Bible you will find references in the Talmud and the Targums to the fact that the Jews knew the sceptre had passed from them. That page also proves that they knew exactly WHEN it would happen, and that when the Messiyah appeared there would be no question about whether He was for real.

Sure enough, the Jews were forced into dispersion by the Romans. Some of them maintained their cultural identity and sabbath. But they ARE NOT Yisrayahites any longer (except by descent, blood)! The nation and national identity was gone. Yahweh had chosen one man (Abraham) out of the nations, and made a special nation from him. When his descendants rejected Yahweh, He dispersed them back into the nations from which they came. Today you see these Jews in the Promised Land, they even call it the nation of Israel (Isis, Ra, and El). It 'is NOT the nation of Yisrayah'. It is the "revived Roman Empire" which was promised for the end days by Daniel (Daniel 2:31-45, 7:7-24, etc). The christians are waiting and speculating about when and how the "revived Roman Empire" can come about. But, IT IS ALREADY HERE!!! The Roman Empire never disappeared. It is ALREADY in control of the Promised Land. The "revived" part just means that now they are once again in the Promised Land. Islam had control for many years. Now they share the Temple Mount. As a group, those Jews are ROMANS, citizens of the Roman Empire: they are not Yisrayahites!!!!!

So what did Yahusua our Savior say about this? Skip on over to Matthew 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is likened to a certain king [YHWH Almighty], who made a marriage feast for his Son [the Messiyah/ Shiloh], 3 and sent forth his servants [malaks] to call those who were bidden [Yisrayah/ Israel] to the marriage feast; and they would not come [did not obey the Law]. 4 Again he sent forth other servants [prophets], saying: Tell those who are bidden; Behold, I made my dinner ready, my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready, come to the marriage feast [kingdom of heaven]. 5 But they [Yisrayah] made light of it, and went their ways, one to his own farm, another to his merchandise, 6 and the rest laid hold on his servants [Yahweh's prophets], treated them shamefully, and killed them. 7 But the king [YHWH] was wroth. He sent his armies, destroyed those murderers [Yisrayah], and burned their city [Yahrusalem/ Jerusalem, in 70AD]. 8 Then he said to his servants: The wedding is ready, but those who were bidden were not worthy [they prayed to Adonai El instead of to YHWH]. 9 Go therefore to the partings of the highways, and as many [gentiles] as you shall find, bid to the marriage feast [of the Lamb]. 10 And those servants went out into the highways [the world], and gathered together all as many as they found [calling on YHWH], both bad and good: and the wedding was filled with guests.

The world is waiting for the Jews to build the Third Temple so that anti-Messiyah (alternate-Messiyah, anti-christ) can come there. But modern Israel and the Jews are NOT the nation of Yahweh. They are Gentiles! There is no scripture anywhere which indicates a return of Yisrayah to the Promised Land in our time or future. When YHWH turned His back on the last remaining vestige of Yisrayah, He allowed someone else to build the Third Temple. That temple is right there on top of the Temple Mount today. It is called the 'Dome Of The Rock'. The anti-Messiyah is in the Third Temple NOW.

Are you doubtful? Consider Matthew 23:34 (see below) Yahushua says he WILL (in His future) send prophets and wise men. Aren't those the 12 apostles? Matthew 23:35 He says the Jews killed Zacharyah [Zachariah], father of Yahchanan the Immerser [John the Baptist]. Gospel of the Nazarenes says it was the soldiers of Herod the Roman who killed Zacharyah. Had the Jews already lost the sceptre, thereby becoming citizens of the Roman Empire? Matthew 21:43 says: The kingdom of Yahweh will be taken away from you. Then Matthew 23:38 says their house is become desolate, meaning the sceptre is now gone, and they were no longer of the NATION of Yisrayah [Israel]. The Gospel of the Nazarenes 60:18 says the same thing "Behold, your house is left to you desolate."

Many are waiting for an evil person known as the anti-christ to come to the Temple and take over. They say he is "the abomination of desolation" which was spoken of by Daniel as standing in the holy place. But doesn't this refer to the Roman Empire? The Roman Empire is the abomination, and they made the nation of Yisrayah desolate (Matthew 23:38). They are now standing there with Islam. Right now in 2013 there is a major thrust to bring the Jews onto the Temple Mount. The modern Jews are citizens of the Roman Empire. When they finally get that permission - watch out!!

How about Matthew 23:39, Yahshua says he will not be on the earth again till the Jews admit that he is the Messiyah. Till they USE the name of Yahweh. Note that the current 'Sacred Name Movement' has accomplished this! It is NOW time for the end!

Why does Matthew 24:34 say the present generation will not pass away till the signs come? (Gospel of Nazarenes 61:12 This generation will not pass till all these things are fulfilled.) This seems very confusing, not just to us, but also to the Jews of the time. The signs certainly BEGAN coming during that generation. Such as the destruction of the Temple predicted in Matthew 24:2. And the coming of Paul and Simon Magus to create the false end-time religion - christianity. The sceptre was gone just a year later. Then thirty-five years later Jerusalem was destroyed. That was in the one generation (40 years), and there is no longer an Yisrayah on the earth to this day. The only real Yisrayahites live in heaven, and do not die. So the generations of Yisrayah are no longer accruing. Since that was the LAST GENERATION of Israel, the saying is true no matter how long it takes to finish the signs, because no other generation of the nation of Israel has arrived. Matthew 24:4-5 the first sign is someone coming in Yahshua's name and "leading many astray". Paul came in the 'name and authority of Jesus', and Simon Magus claimed he WAS Messiyah. They created christianity, which has lead billions astray. Maybe Matthew 24:15 refers to the Romans coming to the Temple and destroying it in 70AD? The Nazarenes certainly thought so. They left the city and ran for the hills as commanded. Matthew 24:21 "for then will be great tribulation" would then refer to the last 2000 years of horror we have lived through. Matthew 24:29 "But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened". The End: the Sixth Seal will have been opened. Please see my page about the Sixth Seal.

Cheers!

Nazarenes 5:15 Herod sent his officers to Zacharyah in the temple, and said to him: Where is your child? And he answered: I am a minister of Yahweh, and am continually in the temple. I do not know where he is. 16 And he sent again, saying: Tell me truly where your son is, do you not know your life is in my hand? And Zacharyah answered: Yahweh is witness if you shed my blood, Yahweh will receive my spirit, for you shed the blood of the innocent. 17 So they slew Zacharyah in the Temple between the sacred place and the altar. The people knew it, for a voice was heard: Zacharyah is slain, and his blood will not be washed out until the avenger comes.

Matthew 23:29 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the sepulchres of the prophets, garnish the tombs of the righteous, 30 and say: If we were in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets. 31 Wherefore you witness to yourselves, that you are sons of those who slew the prophets. 32 Fill you up then the measure of your fathers. 33 You serpents, you offspring of vipers, how will you escape the judgment of gehenna? 34 Behold, I send to you prophets, wise men, and scribes. Some of them you will kill and impale, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city; 35 that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth [Matthew 27:25], from the blood of Abel the righteous to the blood of Zacharyah son of Barachyah, whom you slew between the sanctuary and the altar. 36 Verily I say to you: All these things will come upon this generation. 37 O Yahrusalem, Yahrusalem, that killed the prophets, and stoned those who were sent to her! How often would I have gathered your children together, even as a hen gathers her chickens under her wings, but you would not! 38 Behold, your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I say to you: You will not see me henceforth, till you say; Blessed is He who comes in the Name of Yahweh.

Chapter 24:1 Yahshua went out from the temple, and was going on His way. His disciples came to Him to show Him the buildings of the temple. 2 But He answered, and said to them: Do you see all these things? Verily I say to you, there will not be left here one stone upon another, that will not be thrown down. 3 As He sat on the mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying: Tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign of your coming, and of the end of the world? 4 Yahshua answered, and said to them: Take heed that no man lead you astray. 5 For many will come in my Name, saying: I am the Messiah; and will lead many astray. 6 You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled, for these things must needs come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, plagues, and earthquakes in diverse places. 8 But all these things are the beginning of travail. 9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and kill you. You will be hated of all the nations for my Name's sake. 10 And then many will stumble, deliver up one another, and hate one another. 11 Many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. 12 And because iniquity will be multiplied, the love of the many will wax cold. 13 But he who endures to the end, the same will be saved. 14 And this evangel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world for a testimony to all the nations. And then the end will come. 15 Therefore, when you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniyl the prophet, standing in the set-apart place (let him who reads understand), 16 then let those who are in Yahudah flee to the mountains. 17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house, 18 and let him who is in the field not return back to take his cloak. 19 But woe unto those who are with child and to those who give suck in those days! 20 And pray that your flight is not in the winter, neither on a sabbath. 21 For then will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be. 22 And except those days are shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect's sake those days will be shortened. 23 Then if any man says to you: Lo, here is the Messiah; or; Here; do not believe it. 24 For there will arise false Messiahs, and false prophets, who will show great signs and wonders so as to lead astray even the elect, if possible. 25 Behold, I told you beforehand. 26 If therefore they say to you: Behold, he is in the wilderness. Do not go forth. Behold, he is in the inner chambers: do not believe it. 27 For as the lightning comes forth from the east, and is seen even to the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man. 28 Wheresoever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. 29 But immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give her light, the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven. Then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 He will send forth His malaks with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now from the fig tree learn her parable: when her branch is now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near. 33 Even so you also, when you see all these things, you know He is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say to you, This generation will not pass away, till all these things are accomplished.

Matthew 27:25 All the people answered, and said: His blood is on us, and on our children.

First Clement 16:2 The Scepter of the majesty of Yahweh, even our Savior Yahshua Messiah

Numbers 24:17 I see him, but not now. I behold him, but not near. A star will come forth out of Yaacob, a sceptre will rise out of Yisrayah. 19 One out of Yaacob will have dominion, and will destroy the remnant from the city.
It seems that no one knows what city is here referred to, nor what the "remnant" is. It is obviously Yahrusalem [Jerusalem]. When the Messiyah comes in judgment to rule (the so-called 'second coming'), He will come to Yahrusalem and destroy all the unrighteous (Muslims and Jews alike). That includes the 'remnant' of Yisrayah: the Jews (practitioners of Judaism) who call themselves Israel. Joel 2:32 mentions the same "remnant". Then Yahshua begins a New Yisrayah [New nation of Israel] on the earth, which will last for one thousand years. The New Yisrayah began two thousand years ago, in heaven, and now has many members. Yahshua will bring them along when He returns to rule the earth. I hope to see you there.
