The prophet Jeremiah, speaking in the name of YHWH said; “I will cause a Branch of righteousness to grow up to David.” That Branch is, of course, the Messiah. Through Jeremiah YHWH said that “at that time” when He would cause the Branch to spring up He would also take of David’s “seed to be rulers [plural] over the seed of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.” In other words, it is prophesied that when Messiah would first come He would establish a Davidic administration for faithful Israel with Davidic “rulers” governing Israel under His Kingdom authority, after the pattern of the Davidic Kingdom as it had functioned from David forward. In this episode we will demonstrate from Scripture how this prophecy was fulfilled by Messiah and the “brothers of the Lord” in the first century.” New Testament” passages will be examined to learn how the brothers of the Lord functioned together under Messiah to “rule” the first century faithful remnant of Israel just as prophesied through Jeremiah. This truth is there, buried under a heap of self-perpetuating replacement theology and reinforced by subtle translation errors. You just have to know where to look for it. Now, after seventeen hundred years this truth is finally restored for the first time to those who will receive it – in this very program!
The night before His death Y’shua the Messiah instituted a renewed covenant with a renewed Israel, represented by its tribal heads. That night He explained to those leaders how life under the Renewed Covenant would be very different from all that had come before. He told them about new endowments they would receive in the Renewed Covenant as well as setting out what was most important. His comments remind us of Jeremiah 31:34; “and they shall teach no more every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know YHWH; for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest of them.” That night He told His Talmidim how they could realize that prophetic promise to truly know God and what that would mean for them – and for us. Perhaps most important of all, He told them what they and we must do to Stay in the Renewed Covenant.
