White Champion

“Moreover, he set the rules of the three-year meetings at Crofinn, where that chamber ample and round is builded, wherein I will stretch me until my bones shall be found, whensoe’er my White Champion seek me. There will I dwell alone, whilst this land that I builded up by its idols is overthrown, and the workings of evil amongst ye. The heathen shall swarm with the waves, Ernmais and Figol have counseled of this with me. My tomb shall rest with my people. Their wailing place shall it be for all that repent them of sin.”

Prince of Princes

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.

Daniel 8:25 (KJV)

[Note: Christ does not come back as Prince of princes, so how can the Antichrist stand up against Christ in the title of Prince of princes? When He comes back as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, Jesus does not return as a Prince and a King and a Lord; this would give confusion to the Scripture, especially that dealing with the end days. The Prince that the Antichrist stands up against must already be on the planet and appear before Messiah ben David destroys Antichrist at Armageddon.]

 

Examples:

Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;

1 Timothy 6:15 (KJV)

 

And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Revelation 19:16 (KJV) 

Prince of the Congregation

“the Blessing of the Prince of the Congregation and the Damascus Document vii. 19-20. Needless to say, in the Dead Sea Scrolls this Messiah is the Prince of the Congregation, the King of the latter days.”

Prince of the Covenant

And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.

Daniel 11:22 (KJV)

Messiah ben Joseph

TRIBESMAN by Yair Davidy

Joseph will be politically predominant!

“The Jewish traditional rabbinically orientated commentator known as the MALBIM (Meir Leib ben Yechiel Michael [Weiser] 1809-1879) explained the above chapter of Ezekiel in a manner worth noting:
~ And he took another stick, and he wrote upon it, these words. ~ For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions ~, representing Joseph who was the source of the tribe and from him developed the Kingdom of Ephraim which began with Jeroboam, and therefore is termed, ~ The stick of Ephraim.
~ And all the house of Israel ~, for unto him were joined all of Israel which belong to the Ten Tribes … Our Sacred Sages had a tradition that in the beginning (of the End Times) would arise a Messiah [i.e., Anointed Savior] from the house of Joseph who will reign over the Ten Tribes and he will wage wars and all of Israel will be gathered together under his banner. [This will continue] until later on, a descendant of David will appear and he will reign over them…

“A transformation will take place and the Ten Tribes and the stick of Joseph will draw themselves closer unto the stick of Judah, and this too, will be through the agency of a Prophet and by miracles”.
MALBIM on Micah 5:1– “… It has already been clarified in Ezekiel 37, that in the End Time, the Ten Tribes will be the first to arouse themselves and over them will reign the Messiah [i.e., Anointed Savior] Descendant of Joseph and they will accomplish great things.

“The Tribe of Judah who are scattered amongst the nations [and are] weakly and few will attach themselves [unto the Ten Tribes] and will be of secondary importance in the kingdom of the Anointed Descendant of Joseph. [This will continue] until later there will arise the Anointed Descendant of David in the Might of the LORD, and then all of them will accept upon themselves the kingship of the House of David then wars will cease for the Gentiles will request [guidance from] him [i.e. from the Messiah]…

“…He [the Prophet] wants to say that, As long as the general ingathering will not be complete and all of the Exiled of Judah are still not gathered together in the Land of Israel: Then, all that time, the House of Israel [meaning the Ten Tribes and the Anointed Descendant of Joseph who belongs to them] will be the principal party. They will be the warriors and rulers. The House of Judah will be secondary [in importance] unto them. This was explained in Ezekiel [37:19] ‘Behold, I will take the stick of and I will put on (attached to) him the stick of Judah”. [Note: attached = meaning of secondary importance]

One Like Unto Moses

“And I will give unto him a commandment that he shall do none other work, save the work which I shall command him. And I will make him great in mine eyes; for he shall do my work.

And he shall be great like unto Moses, whom I have said I would raise up unto you, to deliver my people, O house of Israel.

And Moses will I raise up, to deliver thy people out of the land of Egypt.

But a seer will I raise up out of the fruit of thy loins; and unto him will I give power to bring forth my word unto the seed of thy loins-and not to the bringing forth my word only, saith the Lord, but to the convincing them of my word, which shall have already gone forth among them.

Wherefore, the fruit of thy loins shall write; and the fruit of the loins of Judah shall write; and that which shall be written by the fruit of thy loins, and also that which shall be written by the fruit of the loins of Judah, shall grow together, unto the confounding of false doctrines and laying down of contentions, and establishing peace among the fruit of thy loins, and bringing them to the knowledge of their fathers in the latter days, and also to the knowledge of my covenants, saith the Lord.

And out of weakness he shall be made strong, in that day when my work shall commence among all my people, unto the restoring thee, O house of Israel, saith the Lord.

And thus prophesied Joseph, saying; Behold, that seer will the Lord bless; and they that seek to destroy him shall be confounded; for this promise, which I have obtained of the Lord, of the fruit of my loins, shall be fulfilled. Behold, I am sure of the fulfilling of this promise;

And his name shall be called after me; and it shall be after the name of his father. And he shall be like unto me; for the thing, which the Lord shall bring forth by his hand, by the power of the Lord shall bring my people unto salvation.

Yea, thus prophesied Joseph: I am sure of this thing, even as I am sure of the promise of Moses; for the Lord hath said unto me, I will preserve thy seed forever.

And the Lord hath said: I will raise up a Moses; and I will give power unto him in a rod; and I will give judgment unto him in writing. Yet I will not loose his tongue, that he shall speak much, for I will not make him mighty in speaking. But I will write unto him my law, by the finger of mine own hand; and I will make a spokesman for him.

And the Lord said unto me also: I will raise up unto the fruit of thy loins; and I will make for him a spokesman. And I, behold, I will give unto him that he shall write the writing of the fruit of thy loins, unto the fruit of thy loins; and the spokesman of thy loins shall declare it.

And the words which he shall write shall be the words which are expedient in my wisdom should go forth unto the fruit of thy loins. And it shall be as if the fruit of thy loins had cried unto them from the dust; for I know their faith.

And they shall cry from the dust; yea, even repentance unto their brethren, even after many generations have gone by them. And it shall come to pass that their cry shall go, even according to the simpleness of their words.

Because of their faith their words shall proceed forth out of my mouth unto their brethren who are the fruit of thy loins; and the weakness of their words will I make strong in their faith, unto the remembering of my covenant which I made unto thy fathers.

And now, behold, my son Joseph, after this manner did my father of old look.

And there shall rise up one mighty among them, who shall do much good, both in word and in deed, being an instrument in the hands of God, with exceeding faith, to work mighty wonders, and do that thing which is great in the sight of God, unto the bringing to pass much restoration unto the house of Israel, and unto the seed of thy brethren.

And now, blessed art thou, Joseph. Behold, thou art little; wherefore hearken unto the words of thy brother, Nephi, and it shall be done unto thee even according to the words which I have spoken. Remember the words of thy dying father, Amen.”

2 Nephi Ch 3. (1-25)

 

[Note: 2 Nephi is found in the Book of Mormon. I am a Christian and don’t wish to promote the Mormon doctrine, however, the above reference is included here as well as the “A Choice Seer” reference to prove that not only are the Jews and Christians waiting for this person to appear, but it is my belief that the Lord God in His wisdom planted this explanation in many different beliefs, and that might be the only truth that this doctrine holds.]

Messiah the Prince

Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

Daniel 9:25 (KJV)

 

[Note: Again, Jesus (Messiah ben David) does not appear in the last days or end of days as a prince. He appears as King of kings and Lord of lords. Revelation 19:16]

The BRANCH

The word of the Lord come to me: …
Take silver and gold and make crowns. Place [one] on the head of High Priest Joshua son of Jehozadak, and say to him, ‘Thus said the Lord of Hosts: Behold, a man called the Branch shall branch out from the place where he is, and he shall build the Temple of the Lord. He shall build the Temple of the Lord and shall assume majesty, and he shall sit on his throne and rule,

Zechariah 6:9, 10, 12

 

And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, and the branch that thou madest strong for thyself.

Psalm 80:15 (KJV)

 

In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land.

Jeremiah 33:15 (KJV)

 

Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH.

Zechariah 3:8 (KJV)

 

And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: [2] And the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord; [3] And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the Lord: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: [4] But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked. [5] And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.

Isaiah 11:1-5 (KJV)

 

[Note: This is one of the examples of who Jesus (Messiah ben David) is as the rod out of the stem of Jesse, whereas Messiah ben Joseph as (the Branch) grows out of his (Jesse’s) roots. The two are separated by the words and a. Messiah ben Joseph comes first in the end of days as the lesser fulfillment of this prophecy and is murdered by Antichrist. Then, after a short space of time, Messiah ben David comes as the second (greater) fulfillment and completes the two-stage portion of prophecy.]

The Lord’s Servant

Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

Psalm 35:27 (KJV)

 

[Note: Jesus was not the Lord’s servant, but His son …]

The Breath of Our Nostrils

The breath of our nostrils, the anointed of the LORD, was taken in their pits, of whom we said, Under his shadow we shall live among the heathen.

Lamentations 4:20 (KJV)

[Note: This is a last day’s event that was not fulfilled 2,000 years ago when Jesus came. Was Jesus ever considered by the Jewish nation the breath of our (their) nostrils? He was more like a stink that they were in a hurry to get rid of, to their great misfortune (70 years later).]

That Prophet

And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.
And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

John 1:19-21 (KJV)

 

And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

John 1:25 (KJV)

The Unique Prophet

“But in your allotted place will be the temple of God, and the latter temple will exceed the former in glory. The twelve tribes shall be gathered there and all the nations, until such time as the Most High shall send forth his salvation through the ministration of the unique prophet.”

Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs
The Testament of Benjamin, the twelfth son of Jacob and Rachel 
Psendepigraph p. 827 paragraph 9

 

“As one, shall be the tribes of Israel. Shall be like the unique one among the tribes of Israel. This ‘unique one’ shall be king who shall rise from the tribes of Juda, whose name shall be David. Will be just like him.”

The Torah Anthology 
Gen IV 3b page 529

A Stout One

Howl, O gate; cry out, O city; Quake, all Philistia! For a stout one is coming from the north and there is no straggler in his ranks. And what will he answer the messengers of that nation? That Zion has been established by the Lord: In it, the needy of His people shall find shelter.

Isaiah 14:31-32 (Tanakh)

An Ensign

And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly:

Isaiah 5:26 (KJV)

 

And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.

Isaiah 11:10 (KJV)

 

And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.

Isaiah 11:12 (KJV) 

 

All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye.

Isaiah 18:3 (KJV)

 

One thousand shall flee at the rebuke of one; at the rebuke of five shall ye flee: till ye be left as a beacon upon the top of a mountain, and as an ensign on an hill.

Isaiah 30:17 (KJV)

[Note: Jesus Christ has always been taught to us Christians as being this ensign on an hill (Calvary) that is lifted up of the people. But Isaiah speaks of the end time, not 2,000 years ago. Christ could not have fulfilled this prophecy 2,000 years ago because He did not at that time assemble the outcasts of Israel, as they remained scattered throughout the nations. Nor did He gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Why not, you ask? Because at the time of Christ 2,000 years ago, Judah had not been dispersed to the four corners of the earth; that happens in 70 A.D., approximately 40 years after His death. Now, Messiah ben David (Jesus) is the perfect and greater fulfillment of this prophecy upon His return in the end of days when He steps foot on the Mount of Ascension. But who is the first, although lesser, fulfillment of this prophecy? Messiah ben Joseph!]

He Goat
  1. In the third year of the reign of king Belshazzar, a vision appeared unto me, even unto me Daniel, after that which appeared unto me at the first.
  2. And I saw in a vision; and it came to pass, when I saw, that I was at Shushan in the palace, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in a vision, and I was by the river of Ulai.
  3. Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.
  4.  I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.
  5. And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.
  6. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.
  7. And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.
  8. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.

Daniel 8:1-8

Messiah ben Ephraim

David Their King

Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.  For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him:
But they shall serve the LORD their God, and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.

Jeremiah 30:7-9 (KJV) 

 

For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD their God, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD and his goodness in the latter days.

Hosea 3:4-5 (KJV)
