All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us. In that day will I raise up the Tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old…

 

And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, listen to me. Simeon has declared how God at the start did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written, after this I will return, and will build again the Tabernacle of David, which is fallen down, and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up, that the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, says the Lord, who does all these things. Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world. Therefore my sentence is, that we trouble them not, which from among the Gentiles are turned to God…

 

Some in the Church (i.e. British-Israelites) do not understand the fact that, during the Church Age, the Tabernacle or House or Throne of David has been in ruins and has continued such until this day having been intentionally left “desolate” by Y’shua who drew that description of the condition of the Monarchy from right here in II Esdras.

However, on the flip side, the majority of the rest of the Church does not understand that after the Church Age (Rom 11), God will restore the Tabernacle of David as the verses above point out.

You will notice that it is James the brother of our Lord who stated that after the Church Age God will restore this Throne. This is important for one very obvious reason and that is the fact that, with the departure of Y’shua, James is now the Crown Prince of the Davidic Throne, and was recognized as such by the crowd when he was thrown from the Temple by the Priests (Eusebius’ Ecclesiastical History).

Many of the early Church, which was predominantly Jewish, were looking for God to restore the Davidic Throne right then and there (Acts 1).

 

James, remembering our Lords words (“your house is left unto you desolate“), and seeing the Gentiles begin to flood into the Church, realized that this New Work of God was probably going to last for a while, until the message had been preached throughout the World (“the whole earth shall be full of the Glory of the Lord“, “Go into all the World” etc), and the Firstfruits of the Gentiles were gathered into the Garner or Barn called the Commonwealth of Israel and then, after these things, God would return and restore the Tabernacle of David.

This tells us several things. The first is that the Monarchy in England is not the Davidic as they claim and which is echoed by many of the British Israelites.

It also tells us that, assuredly, in order to fulfill the prophecy, there is today, somewhere, a direct descendant of David through the Male Lineage who can, and will, fulfill the promise.

To fulfill the Scripture, he must be able to prove this descent through pedigree because DNA would not show this direct descent through the male lineage but would, in fact, over-emphasize the female lineage.
