Over the past month or so we’ve had two very interesting pieces of Royal Family news that bear a bit of scrutiny for those who understand the Key of David.

I would even venture to call the events behind these two news stories benchmarks of these end days.

First, Queen Elizabeth II finally named Prince Charles as her successor to the throne of Britain.  According to this news article:

“It’s almost impossible to believe that in her 91 years of living Queen Elizabeth II has never actually endorsed a successor.


Today, though, that changed when the U.K. royal family matriarch gave her support to her oldest child, Prince Charles.


Ahead of her 92nd birthday, Queen Elizabeth issued a request to the Commonwealth Heads of Government to name Charles as her successor.”

I’ll explain the significance of that in just a moment, and why I believe it to be a benchmark, or sign, of how close we’re truly growing to the end.

Secondly, as the whole world now knows, biracial American actress Meghan Markle joined the royal family, becoming the Duchess of Sussex upon marrying Prince Harry, the younger son of Prince Charles and sixth in line of succession to the British throne.

According to the write up about Meghan Markle on Wikipedia:

“Describing her heritage, Markle has said, “My dad is Caucasian and my mom is African American. I’m half black and half white. 


… I have come to embrace this and say who I am, to share where I’m from, to voice my pride in being a strong, confident, mixed-race woman.” 

So now we have a biracial individual married into the Royal family.

Let’s first take a look at the relevance of the Queen’s announcement about Prince Charles, and afterwards we’ll take a look at the latest royal wedding and its ramifications.

I think you’ll see that they represent interesting and quite radical benchmarks for the final days of this flesh earth age in which we live…

Prince Charles as “Defender of the Faiths”

Whenever a new British monarch is crowned, that person becomes Supreme Governor of the Church of England.  And as part of the coronation, the new king or queen has to swear to be the “Defender of the Faith” and upholder of the “true profession of the Gospel.”

In other words, the new monarch is sworn to uphold and defend the Christian faith and the Gospel of Christ Jesus. Not any other faith or creed.

But Prince Charles, now the official heir to the British throne thanks to Queen Elizabeth’s recent proclamation, stated publicly in 2006 that when he finally takes the throne, he intends to be “defender of faiths” (plural) rather than “defender of the faith.”

According to an article in the October 9, 2012 Washington Post:

At her coronation in 1953, Elizabeth swore to “uphold the laws of God and the true profession of the Gospel, maintain the Protestant reformed religion established by law and reserve the settlement of the Church of England.”


Her son and heir apparent, Prince Charles, has said he’s planning a symbolic change if and when he becomes king by taking the title “Defender of Faith” or “Defender of the Faiths” to reflect Britain’s multicultural and multifaith society.


That change would mean Charles would be the first monarch to not be the standard-bearer for Protestantism for the first time since Henry VIII famously broke from Rome to start his own church.

In other words, Prince Charles wants to be considered the defender of ALL religious faiths, not just the Christian faith.  He’s practicing Masonic syncretism, which essentially is the lumping of all faiths together as one — i.e., so-called “interfaith religion” — under the erroneous theory that “all religions lead to God.”

But the royal throne of Britain is a decidedly Christian throne.

After all, every person who has ever sat on that throne has been a descendant of King David (see my Bible study, The Key of David).  And our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is the “son of David” (i.e., Matthew 22:15, Matthew 22:42, Mark 10:47-48, Luke 1:32; Romans 1:3).

In other words, Jesus Christ is the direct descendant of David, and thus He’s the heir of God’s promises to David, which includes an eternal earthly throne (Jeremiah 33:17) over God’s People True Israel.  As it’s written:

Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want [i.e., lack] a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

David’s throne would be eternal.  There will always be a direct bloodline descendant of David sitting on a throne over God’s People Israel.

In reality, then, that Davidic throne over Britain belongs to Jesus Christ, Son of David and heir of God’s manifold promises to David.  And those Davidic kings and queens who have sat upon that Royal throne throughout history have done so in His stead, as members of the royal family line of David.

It’s therefore a strictly Christian throne.  It’s not a pagan throne, which is to say, a throne of any other religion, much less all religions.

In 2015, some nine years after Prince Charles first made his infamous statement about wanting to be known as “Defender of the Faiths” (plural), he only slightly reneged on his original statement.

According to this UK news source, he claimed that when he becomes King, he would indeed take on the role of ‘Defender of the Faith,’” which he nevertheless “envisages as being the protector of all faiths.”

The point being, even with Prince Charles’ very minor revision to his original claim, his being seated on the Royal throne would signal a radical (and some would say quite revolutionary) shift in the role of the British monarchy from defender of the Christian faith and its Gospel, to defender of all religious faiths and their creeds.

Could you imagine King David doing the same thing?  No.  Not if you know your Bible.

King David was true to God’s Word, and always looked forward to the Messiah of God, who of course is Jesus Christ.  David always stood firm in God’s Word, and wrote many Psalms railing against apostasy, idol worship and false religion.

As King over God’s People Israel He never considered his role to be defender of Baal, Moloch, Asherah, Chemosh, Dagon, Tammuz or any other false god or false religion of that time.   Indeed, he went to war with most of them, and conquered them.

So frankly — and I’ll admit candidly this is my own opinion — Prince Charles’ decision to be known as the “defender of the faiths” (plural) is a decidedly ungodly shift in the character, makeup and operation of the British monarchy and the Davidic throne upon which that monarch sits.

That’s particularly true if you keep in mind that Christianity is a reality (better stated, it’s the eternal reality) and that all other religions are simply man’s empty pagan attempts at forging their own pathway without Jesus Christ.

The throne of David is not the protectorate of all religions.  It’s the symbol of the Christian religion and the truthfulness of God’s Word to His People True Israel.  It’s the earthly type of the very throne Christ Jesus sits on in heaven.

What’s more, the throne of David is the Key of David.  Let no man tell you otherwise.  Indeed, your understanding of that Royal throne is your key to overcoming Satan’s deception in the final days of this flesh earth age.

Why?  Because David was promised, by God Himself, no less, that wherever you find God’s People Israel on this earth, they’ll have David’s eternal throne ruling over them (Jeremiah 33:17).   In other words, a never-ending throne can always be found ruling over God’s People.  As it’s written:

Jer 33:19  And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying,


Jer 33:20  Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;


Jer 33:21  Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

Put another way, if you look outside and there’s still day and night taking place, then God’s covenant with David regarding that Royal throne is still in full effect.  Period.  The throne is never-ending, and it will always be over God’s People Israel wherever you see it planted.

Therefore, in this final generation of this flesh earth age, when you see a people in the Middle East land of Israel proclaiming themselves to be “God’s Chosen People Israel,” and you don’t see a Royal Davidic throne ruling over them, then you know those people are not who they claim to be.  They’re fakes.

God’s people Israel Christianized centuries ago, ultimately fulfilling God’s promises to Abraham that his seed would become “as many as the stars of the sky and the sands of the sea,” and that Abraham would be “a father of many nations…and kings and queens shall come out of thee.”

Abraham would not become a father of a single nation, meaning that Middle East land of Israel.  Instead, he was to become a father of many nations. His seed – exceedingly fruitful – would “spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south” (Genesis 28:13-15) and would go on to found multiple nations around the globe.  And kings and queens would come forth from those nations.

In other words, we’re talking about the British Empire, the Commonwealth, the many-membered nations which make up God’s People True Israel, including its offshoots of Canada, America, Australia, New Zealand, etc.

The Royal Throne of Britain is the key to understanding who, and where, God’s People True Israel are located in the final days of this flesh earth age.  They’re the western Christian nations.  That throne is Christ’s earthly throne over His People Israel.

What’s more, David was also promised by God Himself that God’s church on this earth (meaning the Christian church, since Christ is God) will be directly connected to that throne (Jeremiah 33:17-18).  As it’s written, for those who have “eyes to see and ears to hear”:

Jer 33:17  For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want [i.e., lack] a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;


Jer 33:18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want [i.e., lack] a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

The throne and the Levitical priesthood of the end days — now a Christian priesthood, since Christ is the Son of David and the ultimate heir of David — are directly connected.

That’s why, upon coronation, each new British monarch automatically becomes Supreme Governor of the Church, and must swear to defend the Christian faith and it’s true Gospel. The monarchy and the Christian faith are inextricably connected with each other.

If you don’t understand that, then I urge you to open your spiritual eyes and ears, and read the Bible study, The Key of David.  It’s lengthy. But the Biblical and historical documentation is irrefutable.

That study will document for you that the Royal throne itself is the Key of David, and that Key of David is your key to overcoming the deception of the antichrist when he arrives to Jerusalem to embrace his children the Kenites (i.e., the false Jews of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9) and then spread their rule over the rest of the world as they usher in Satan’s one-world system known as Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the Earth.

Queen Elizabeth is now 92 years old.  It’s my contention that we’re drawing very near the end when you start to see signs that she’s getting ready to pass the monarchy on to her son Charles, either upon her death, or by abdicating the throne due to old age.

So when you see someone seated as the new Monarch upon that throne claiming to be the representative of ALL religions (keeping in mind that all other religions are fake) then to my mind you have a clear signal that Christ is getting ready to return to this earth to reclaim His rightful throne and to set things right again in this world (after the antichrist arrives, of course, in fulfillment of the Scriptures in II Thessalonians 2:1-4).

In other words, when Prince Charles finally takes the throne, it will be a benchmark that we’re very near the end. This may sound foreign to some readers.  But check out the Bible study The Key of David, and I think you’ll understand what I’m talking about by the time you finish it.

Meghan Markle:  First Royal Mamzer

Now for the second benchmark of these end days, in relation to the Davidic throne:

As I pointed out at the beginning of this article, Meghan Markle, now a Royal Family member by marriage, openly admits she’s part white and part black, by racial makeup.  And there’s nothing wrong with that.  The Bible tells us that God made the various races on the sixth day, and pronounced His creation to be “very good” (Genesis 1:31).

God does indeed expect His children to remain true to their bloodline heritage, and each child passing through this flesh age is to marry into one’s own bloodline.  Why?  Because He made each race exactly how He wants them.  He’s happy with His creation exactly how He made it (i.e., “very good”).  He’s proud of every race.   And He wants them to remain undiluted, so to speak.

Nevertheless, a mixed-race child is not a fault for its parent’s doings.  It’s something no child has any control over.  And God doesn’t hold it against them.  As an example, in Old Testament times God always made provision for the mixed race multitudes among His People.  Though they sometimes caused great consternation (Numbers 11:4), they were accepted if they did right by God, although there were certain exclusions back then (Deuteronomy 23:2).

What’s more, I shouldn’t have to state that I love all of God’s children, regardless of their racial makeup.  And I don’t consider any race to be superior to another.  So please don’t start calling me “racist” over this.

I’m just pointing out benchmarks of the end days in relation to the British throne and the Bible.  I don’t have anything at all against Meghan Markle.  I wish her and the good Prince Harry the very best of times.

Yet with all of that said, I’ll probably be excoriated for making the following statement.  But I don’t care, because it’s true:  The royal lineage is supposed to stay pure of bloodline.  By that I mean the bloodline leading to that Royal throne is supposed to remain strictly Davidic.

The Davidic royals are not supposed to mix with other races. That’s why royal marriages have been so carefully chosen for thousands of years, up to now.

Indeed, most of the Royal Family of Britain has been Germanic in heritage.  That’s because, as Pastor Arnold Murray once put it, “Germany is Judah.”  Which is to say, many German Christians are of the genetic lineage of the true Biblical tribe of Judah (see the study By Their Own Sword for additional details), which was King David’s tribe.

And thus it should be no surprise that many royal British marriages have, for over 1,500 years, been arranged through people of Germanic bloodline.  Yes, even Germany has a Royal line which is directly related to the British Royals.  (See the British news article How German is the Queen?).

But now that Prince Harry has married Meghan Markle, we have a biracial individual in the Royal family household of Britain — a stunning break from thousands of year’s worth of Royal Davidic heritage.

And since we can pretty safely assume they’ll eventually have children (the newspapers have stated that they’re “eager to start a family”), that means there will sooner or later likely be a biracial heir to the Davidic throne.

Biblically, in Old Testament terminology, that would be what’s referred to as a mamzer, which is to say, a bastard, or illegitimate child — with the word “illegitimate” in this sense meaning not of pure bloodline.  It’s not a reflection on the child or its parents.  Just on the legitimacy of the child to ever inherit the Royal throne.

Since Prince Harry is sixth in line to the throne, that would make the son or daughter of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seventh in line, but only if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have no more children (see here and here for more information on how the line to the British throne is chosen.)

Frankly, that fact makes it very unlikely that one of the children of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would ever be seated on that Royal throne, at least not in the foreseeable future.  There are just too many heirs at the front of the line.  So a child of theirs would not even be considered part of the “core” Royal family at this point in time.

My point in elucidating all of this is not to deride Meghan Markle or the future children of Prince Harry and Meghan, or to warn against a “bastard” being seated on the Royal throne.  Not at all.

But when you view the two news stories above with “eyes to see and ears to hear” — and here I’m speaking of Prince Charles’ desire to be considered “Defender of the Faiths” (plural), and a biracial individual marrying into the royal family bloodline — you can clearly see that radical, yes, even revolutionary changes in the character, operation and makeup of the Royal family are now taking place.

It’s only my opinion.  But I believe these radical shifts signal how close we’re growing to the time of the end.

As it’s written in the great book of Isaiah, our Lord and Savior is returning to make right that which has been turned upside down in the final days of this flesh earth age.

And that would certainly include radical and unbiblical changes in the character, makeup and operation of the Royal Davidic line.  Christ’s Second Advent will set all things right again.  As it’s written:

Isa 29:13  Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

God is saying through the prophet Isaiah that His People always claim to love and honor Him, but then they ignore His Word and follow empty man-made traditions.  And the closer we get to the end, the more pronounced this ungodly trait becomes, yes, even among Christians and their leadership.

Isa 29:14  Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid.

God’s way is being pushed aside by the so-called “wise men” of this world in favor of man-made traditions.

Prince Charles’ determination to be the Defender of all faiths and creeds rather than the Christian faith and its Gospel creed is just one of these man-made traditions.  Bringing biracial individuals into the Royal bloodline is another.  It might be politically correct.  But it’s incorrect by Biblical standards.

Yet the people and their leaders largely cheer these moves.  God has hid true wisdom from them, but not from you, beloved.  You know the truth.

Isa 29:15  Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

The workers of iniquity think God isn’t watching their actions. They’ve gotten away with their manifold changes for a long time now.  But not for too much longer.  The events of these end days, as spelled out in Bible prophesy, will continue to unfold, and when all things are fulfilled the Lord will return to set it right again.

Isa 29:16  Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

God is the potter (Isaiah 64:8; Jeremiah 18:6), which is to say, He’s the one who creates and shapes all things.

But man always thinks he can do it better than God.  So man abandons God’s way in favor of his own way, violating God’s command in Proverbs 3:5, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”  Most people today go by their “feelings” rather than by God’s Word.

But you do it God’s way, beloved, because when He comes to make right that which man has turned upside down, He comes with a rod of iron, which is to say, a rod of correction.

As it’s written in Revelation 2:27, “And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.”

That old pottery that’s acting in rebellion to God’s Word and turning to man-made traditions in its place is going to be broken to shivers at Christ’s Second Advent.  And then God will work to teach and ultimately reclaim His wayward children throughout the Millennium teaching period — at least, as many of them as will listen.

Isa 29:17  Is it not yet a very little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be esteemed as a forest?


Isa 29:18  And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.


Isa 29:19  The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

His coming will be a joyous time indeed, but only for those who are found staying the course, which is to say, doing things His way and not man’s way.

Then the Millennium teaching period will be ushered in and His Word will be made fully manifest to the rest of His children, as well.  They’ll have no choice.  He’ll have them back in “Sunday school,” so to speak, for one thousand years (Revelation 20:2-4).

Isa 29:20  For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off:

Satan is the “terrible one” and the “scorner.”  And at Christ’s arrival that old scorner is going down.  That’s God’s Purpose, i.e., to destroy the wicked one and his unrepentant children for good, so they can no longer influence God’s children with their wickedness.

Isa 29:21  That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.

You see it happening even now, beloved.  If you so much as say the wrong word you’re called a “hater” or a “bigot” by the politically correct “social justice warrior” crowd and the snowflake liberals.

They do everything they can to deride, unfairly attack and even overturn those who stand firm in God’s Word and refuse to compromise with the world.

Isa 29:22  Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.

Jacob is the house of True Israel, beloved.  You know that.  And you won’t be ashamed for standing firm in your knowledge, when Christ arrives.  The Lord is going to take that which has been turned upside down — i.e., the truth — and set it right again.  And it will be set right for the eternity.

Yes, the truth will ultimately prevail.  So stick with it.  Don’t turn away and start running with the blind multitudes and their man-made traditions as the final days of this flesh earth age wind down to a close.

Isa 29:23  But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.


Isa 29:24  They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

God is coming to save His wayward children, beloved. He loves them.  But He’s not going to put up with their nonsense.  There will indeed be correction.  Intense correction.  But there will also be salvation.  That’s the point of the Millennium teaching period.

If you’re wise, you’ll seek to be one of the teachers, and not one of the students.

The bottom line is that the changes being made in regards to the character, makeup and operation of the Royal throne and the Royal family are signature benchmarks, in my view, that we’re getting closer than ever to the end.

We know there are more prophesies to be fulfilled, such as the attack on Iran of Daniel chapter 8 which ushers in the four winds of Daniel 7 and Revelation 7, and which in turn usher in the four stages of one-worldism and the deadly wound leading to the antichrist’s arrival to this earth.

But the radical changes we’re now witnessing in terms of the Davidic Royal House would have been inconceivable even 20 years ago.  So stay on the watch.  Keep your powder dry.  Don’t allow events to get you too excited.  But do the work of a watchman of the Lord, and help others understand what’s happening and what’s coming.
