Who Really Has the Spiritual Rights to Jerusalem?

Part 2

New Jerusalem


Some additional details on "Who Really Has the Spiritual Rights to Jerusalem?" will be provided here that were not explained in Part 1. Although this Part 2 was written before Part 1, we are publishing it now as a continuation, since Part 1 is a more comprehensive document.


The reading of the First Book of Kings 11:29-32, 12:19 (1) seem to completely delegitimize those who claim to be of the lineage of David as well as claiming the right over the city of Jerusalem... Of course, that is the case unless someone claims that the Old Testament —the Christian version as well as the official Jewish version— are both wrong.

Key quotes:

31 He (the prophet Ahias) said to Jeroboam, “Take ten pieces; for Yahweh, the God of Israel, says, ‘Behold, I will tear the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon and will give ten tribes to you 32 (but he shall have one tribe, for my servant David’s sake and for Jerusalem’s sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel),

Let us see: There are 12 tribes — one is the tribe of the Levites. That leaves 11 tribes of which 10 tribes go to Jeroboam and one shall still remain under Solomon for the sake of David.

Now let us go to chapter 12 of the First Book of Kings.

19 So Israel rebelled against David’s house to this day. 20 When all Israel heard that Jeroboam had returned, they sent and called him to the congregation, and made him king over all Israel. There was no one who followed David’s house, except for the tribe of Judah only.

Today's Israelites claim to be of the lineage of David but rejected Jesus the Messiah Who functioned under a completely different Liturgical Schedule (2) than the one followed by Temple Masters and their followers.

It seems that it logically follows that those who kept the same Liturgical Schedule as Jesus did were the true members of the tribe of Juda —the legitimate claimants of Davidic lineage— while the Temple Masters, and their followers, were really from the now allegedly missing Ten Tribes of Israel or what we know today as the Israelites.

No; we have not made a mathematical error — there still is one tribe to account for.  That is the tribe of Levites who was split when God made the 10 to 1 tribe separation since they spiritually serve the remaining eleven tribes. Some of its members went to minister the 10 tribes given to Jeroboam to rule and some went to minister the only tribe that can be called the legitimate lineage of David by Divine Decree.

Another case of Cafeteria Theology (3). Just as it is done by many Christians and Muslims leaders.

The Christian killed and continue to kill the Muslims and the Muslims killed and continue to kill the Christians all the while the Qur'an key message (4) is to heed, thus live, the teachings of Jesus Christ.

In the meantime, the religious "leaders" are puzzled that every day that goes by more and more people ignore religion, thus, tragically drift away from God. "Cafeteria Faith" does not work for the more informed faithful. The more informed individuals are the ones who eventually occupy leadership positions in society, thus a more godless society.... and satan continues to score points.

As always — it is that simple. Unfortunately the intellect of the religious "leaders", lacking the illumination of the Holy Spirit, cannot see it.

(3) Cafeteria Theology: Thus we call the theology that builds its own "menu" like someone who orders a customized coffee in a cafeteria.
(4) Judaism, Christianity and Islam are not incoherent amongst themselves
