David's Throne Found in Britain
The tracing of the kings and queens of the Royal House of David from Old to New Testament days is an exciting and rewarding study. Though it is sometimes suggested that our Royal House is of German origin, this is not factual. The rule of the Stuarts ended unhappily and Cromwell came to power; but, tiring of his discipline, the people restored the monarchy; thus the nearest lineal descendant of the Royal House of Stuart was sought.
The daughter of James I was Elizabeth, who married the King of Bohemia. Their daughter Sophia married the Elector of Hannover and their eldest son became George I of England. Thus, the great grandson of James I became King of Great Britain and Ireland in 1714, introducing into the sovereignty of this United Kingdom, the House of Hannover and of Brunswick.
Our present Queen, Queen Elizabeth, is a direct descendant of King David of the Old Testament.
Though it might be suggested that George I was half-German, this is not so, for his father, Earnest Augustus of Hannover, and his grandfather, Frederick of Bohemia, were both descended from Odin and Frea. Odin (or Wodin) was descended from Calcol and Dardan, who were Zara-Judah's sons. Thus the alliance of Elisabeth and Sophia only strengthened the Judah line: thus, although some members of the Royal line resided in Germany for a period. German Kings never ruled Britain at any time.
The Royal College of Heralds in Britain accepts this direct line of descent from King David to Queen Elizabeth II as factual.
"I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah" (PSALM 89:3-4).
Also we read in JEREMIAH 33:25-26, a very definite promise:
"Thus saith the LORD; If my covenant be not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth; Then will I cast away the seed of Jacob, and David my servant, so that I will not take any of his seed to be rulers over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: for I will cause their captivity to return, and have mercy on them."
The Arbroath Declaration
The Scottish Declaration of Independence, in Latin, is written on parchment and is now kept in Register House in Edinburgh. This ancient document, described by Register House officials as "probably our most precious possession," is dated A.D. 1320, and bears the seals of Scottish barons assembled in Parliament under Robert the Bruce.
A translation taken from the "Scots Magazine," April, 1934, pp. 16-18, reads:
"To the Most Holy Father in Christ and Lord, the Lord John, by divine providence Supreme Pontiff of the Holy Roman and Universal Church... Most Holy Father and Lord, we know and from the chronicles and books of the ancients we find that among other famous nations, our own, the Scots, has been graced with widespread renown. They journeyed from greater Scythia by way of the Tyrrhenian (Mediterranean) Sea and the Pillars of Hercules, and dwelt for a long course of time in Spain among the most savage tribes, but nowhere could they be subdued by any race, however barbarous.
Thence they came, twelve hundred years after the people of Israel crossed the Red Sea, to their home in the west where they still live today. The Britons they first drove out, the Picts they utterly destroyed, and even though very often assailed by the Norwegians, the Danes and the English, they took possession of that home with many victories and untold efforts; and, as the historians of old time bear witness, they have held it free of all bondage ever since. In their kingdom there have reigned one hundred and thirteen kings of their own royal stock, the line unbroken by a single foreigner.
The high qualities and deserts of these people, were they not otherwise manifest, gain glory from this: that the King of kings and Lord of lords, our Lord Jesus Christ, after His Passion and Resurrection, called them, even though settled in the uttermost parts of the earth, almost the first to His most holy faith. Nor would He have them confirmed in that faith by merely anyone but by the first of His Apostles by calling - though second or third in rank - the most gentle Saint Andrew, the Blessed Peter’s brother, and desired him to keep them under his protection as their patron for ever..."
The Lion and Unicorn People
"How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel!... God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows. He couched, he lay down as a lion, and as a great lion: who shall stir him up? Blessed is he that blesseth thee, and cursed is he that curseth thee" (NUMBERS 24:5-9).
The only people represented today by the lion and unicorn together are the British people. The Royal coat of arms has on one side of the central shield a crowned lion representing a royal kingdom, and on the other side a unicorn with a chain around it representing strength.
