THE BRANCH

The Hidden Son of David

"In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to Davïd a Branch of righteousness; he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely…"

 

– Jeremiah 3:16-17

In the Name of YAHUWAH our Father, and Yahushua the Messiah our Redeemer, Greetings.

 

Beloved brethren, the books of the prophets of Yisrael contain many passages of scripture that have been wrongfully assigned to Christ by Euro-Gentile scholars and their adherents, which are in truth, prophesying the coming of a Royal kinsman of Christ, and not of Christ Himself. And sadly, this fundamental error has led to much division and confusion over the Gospel, and the coming restoration of the Kingdom to Yisrael...

For those of us who are born from above through the Holy Spirit, the fact that Yahushua is Yisrael's true Messiah is indisputable. The historical truth of His death, burial and literal physical resurrection from the dead, witnessed by hundreds of our ancient Hebrew Yisraelite fathers, is absolutely unassailable. However, what remains unclear for most of us are the prophecies concerning the House of Davïd - the Royal Hebrew Yisraelite lineage and family of Christ. 

 

Like much of Hebrew eschatology, this matter has been grossly mishandled by the corporate theologians of Churchianity. And sadly, their miscalculations have been widely accepted by supposed 'African Americans' in general - including the Hebrew Yisraelite-aware - in the absence of a true Hebraic understanding of end-time events. Hear O Yisrael: know and innerstand that the end-time revelation of the Branch is the key to the New Exodus; to the deliverance, the repatriation, and the eternal governance of our people, the Kingdom Commonwealth, and the world...

 

So then - let us examine a few key passages of scripture that have been said to represent Christ, but actually speak of an anointed son of Davïd yet to come:

YermiYahu-Jeremiah 23

 

3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries where I have driven them and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

 

Now according to this verse, YermiYahu's prophecy is for the end-times when Yisrael shall be repatriated to her original Promised Land.

 

4 And I will set up shepherds over them which shall feed them: and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall they be lacking, says YAHUWAH. 5 Behold, the days come, says YAHUWAH, that I will raise unto Davïd a righteous Branch, and a king shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

 

Notice, saints, that the king in question is referred to as a righteous branch. So then is Christ somehow an extension of King Davïd? YAH forbid! In fact, both Davïd and King Yahushua Himself have refuted the false doctrine that Davïd's LORD (Christ) is in any sense a branch or an appendage of fallen man (Matt. 22:41-45).

YeshaYahu-Isaiah 11

1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Yishai-Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots: 

According to this verse, an end-time king shall proceed from the loins of King Davïd, who is the stem, or branch, of his father Yishai. And as we all know, a son comes forth out of his father, just as a branch or stem grows out of a tree. Abba YAH revealed to YeshaYahu that this branch will not only come from the seed of Davïd, but that he will also grow out of Yishai-Jesse’s roots. And who is the root of Jesse? Christ. 

As Christ Himself declared, "I am the Root and the Offspring of Davïd." Notice, beloved children, that Yah'shua did not say He was the son of Davïd. Now, let us reason together. Why would the Root of Jesse - Christ - clone Himself as His own son? Surely that bizarre twisting of scripture could only have originated from the author of confusion himself...

As for the Branch: Again, his flesh proceeds from the loins of Davïd; but - his soul and spirit proceed from the Root of Davïd; from Yahushua Ben YAHUWAH Ha Mashiach. Yah'shua Himself put it this way: While the Pharisees were gathered together, Yahushua asked them, saying, "What do you think of Christ? Whose son is He?" They said unto him, "The son of Davïd" (Matt. 22:41-42).

And that is exactly who most Christians and Messianic 'Jews' believe "Jesus" to be – the son of Davïd, who was prophesied to come at the end of days. And of course, the whole first-century generation, including the very apostles of Christ, believed that as well. It is for this very reason that the "Torah-only" Yisraelites of today have not yet received Yah'shua as their Messiah. Ironically, for the same reason the Levitical Priesthood did not receive Him from the beginning... 
 

But who did Christ declare Himself to be? Surely, He has the final word on His own identity.

 

MattitYahu-Matthew 22

 

43 He said unto them, "How then does Davïd in Spirit call Him Master, saying, 44 'YAHUWAH said to my Lord, sit on My right hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool.' 45 If Davïd then called him Lord, how is He his son?"

 

In other words, how can Davïd's son also be Davïd's father? And why would Davïd call his own son Lord? After all, my brethren, what man among us would ever call his sons Lord? So then, who is this son of Davïd? The next verse reveals what will happen to Yahushua's adversaries when we correctly identify him:

 

46 "...and no man was able to answer Him a word; neither did any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions." 

Now, as we all know, the generation of the Messiah longed for the son of Davïd who would deliver Yisrael from political oppression. But - they wanted Yah'shua to deliver Yisrael unto themselves, and not unto YAH. Not because they believed His report, but because they wanted political sovereignty. So when the people attempted to make Him their King, He deferred.

 

Indeed, that was the temptation of Satan to Ha Mashiach: Worship me, and you can establish the Kingdom right now, without having to be crucified - without having to die to the flesh. A much easier course of action, saints, than the Root of Davïd dying for the sins of Yisrael, so the son of Davïd may possess the divine key to deliver His elect some two-thousand years later...

 

In other words, Satan attempted to execute the grand illusion of gain without pain - the ultimate religious deception from the founding father of lies. Hear O Yisrael, and innerstand: Yahushua our Messiah resisted and overcame that universal temptation, as well as the subtle twisting of scripture that misrepresents our Redeemer as the son of Davïd. And so must we.

 

Behold, saints: The Master Teacher Himself remained faithful to the truth - that in the Royal House of Yisrael, He, and He alone, is the everlasting Root of Davïd. And He did so unto death; even the death of the cross. Therefore, Abba YAH has highly exalted Him, and has indeed given Him a Name which is above every name, just as it is written...

 

Surely, the hour has come for the Holy Nation to become steadfast and unmovable in this basic Truth. Sélah.
