The Stone of Scone/Destiny

Stone of Destiny as it used to be "housed" in the Coronation Throne.On left the Stone of Destiny as it used to be "housed" in the Coronation Throne.

The Celtic name of the stone now in the Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey is Lia Fail, "the speaking stone", which named the king who would be chosed. Cambray in his "Monuments Celtiques" claims to have seen the stone when it bore the inscription: Ni fallat fatum, Scoti quocumque locatum Invenient lapidiem, regnasse tenetur ibidem: If the Destiny prove true, then the Scots are known to have been Kings where'er men find this stone.

A few miles up the river from Perth is the site of the historic Abbey of Scone, where the kings of Scotland were crowned. But the glory of Scone has long departed, for, even in the time of the writing of the old "Statistical Account"...."on the spot where our ancient kings were crowned there now grows a clump of trees."

At Scone the Coronation Stone or Stone of Destiny was "reverently kept for the consecration of the kings of Alba" and, according to an old chronicler, "no king was ever wont to reign in Scotland unless he had first, on receiving the royal name, sat upon this stone at Scone, which by the kings of old had been appointed to the capital of Alba." The Stone of Destiny, now in Westminster Abbey (at the time this was written), is an oblong block of RED SANDSTONE, some 26 inches long by 16 inches broad, and 10 1/2 inches deep: on the flat top of the stone are the marks of chiselling.

Tradition (legend) affirms that it is the same stone which Jacob used as a pillow at Bethel and then set up as a pillar and anointed with oil: later, according to Jewish tradition (possible legend), it became the pedestal of the ark in the Temple. The stone was brought from Syria to Egypt by Gathelus, who in order to escape the plague, sailed, on the advice of Moses, from the Nile with his wife and the Stone of Destiny, and landed in Spain. Gathelus sent the stone to Eire when he had invaded that country, and it was later brought to Scotland where it remained in the Abbey of Scone until, in the year 1296, Edward I of England carried it off to Westminster Abbey in England.

An interesting tradition (again possibly legend) that had been given me (Seton Gordon) by the Earl of Mansfield, whose family have owned the lands of Scone for more than 300 years. The tradition, which has been handed down through several generations, is that, somewhere around the dates 1795-1820, a farm lad had been wandering with a friend on Dunsinnan, the site of MacBeth's Castle, soon after a violent storm. The torrential rain had caused a landslide, and as a result of this fissure, which seemed to penetrate deep into the hillside, was visible. The two men procured some form of light and explored the fissure. They came at last to the broken wall of a subterranean chamber. In one corner of the chamber was a stair which was blocked with debris, and in the centre of the chamber they saw a slb of stone covered with markings and supported by four stone "legs". As there was no other evidence of "treasure" in the subterranean apartment the two men did not realise the importance of their "find" and did not talk of what they had seen. Some years later one of the men first heard the local tradition, that on the approach of the King Edward I , the monks of Scone hurriedly removed the Stone of Destiny to a place of safe concealment and took from the Annety Burn a stone of similar size and shape, which the English King carried off in triumph. When he heard this legend, the man hurried back to Dunisinnan Hill, but whether his memory was at fault regarding the site of the landslide, or whether the passage of time, or a fresh slide of earth, had obliterated the cavity, thefact remains that he was unable to locate the opening in the hillside. It may be asked why the monks of Scone, after the English king had returned to England, did not bring back to the abbey the original Stone of Destiny, but the tradition accounts for this explaining that it was not considered safe at the time to allow the English to know that they had been tricked, and that when the days of possible retribution were past, the monks who had known the secret were dead. This tradition, it is held, explains why the Coronation Stone in Westminster Abbey resembles geologically the sandstone commonly found in the neighbourhood of Scone.

This states clearly that the stone is of red sandstone and although in person appears brown-grey, geologists assure it is indeed sandstone inside. They have apparently tested it before.




Taken from "Highways and byways in the Central Highlands"
UPDATE: The Stone of Destiny

On St Andrews Day, 30th November 1996, Scotland's coronation stone, the Stone of Destiny, was installed in Edinburgh Castle. About 10,000 people lined the Royal Mile to watch the procession of dignitaries and troops escort the stone from Holyrood Palace to the castle. In a service at St Giles cathedral the Church of Scotland Moderator, the Right Reverend John MacIndoe, formally accepted the stone's return saying it would "strengthen the proud distinctiveness of the people of Scotland".
Once inside the castle the stone was laid on an oak table before the grand fireplace of the early 16th century Great Hall. The Scottish Secretary of State Michael Forsyth ceremoniously received it from Prince Andrew, who was representing the Queen.

Outside the castle, under clear blue skies, a twenty-one gun salute was fired from the Half-Moon Battery, echoed by HMS Newcastle lying anchored off Leith harbour in the Firth of Forth. When asked of an official why the Scottish flag, the Saltire (St Andrews Cross) was not flying at the highest point. He replied that because Prince Andrew, (second son of the Queen) was inside, the flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack, had to fly on top.

An alternative view

Below are printed two articles from JAP. They make interesting reading and enhance the many myths that surround Saint Columba and the foundation of Scotland in general. (A separate note on JAP is to be found at the end of these articles). Scottish element reasserts itself, sustained by a set of myths and legends which have never quite been extinguished.

The definition of myth here has been set out by three researchers at Edinburgh University's Centre for Educational Sociology, John Gray, Andrew McPherson and David Raafe. In their book – ‘Reconstructions of Secondary Education; Theory, Myth and Practice Since the War’ - they put it as follows: 'We do not mean by myth things that are thought to be true, but that are, in fact, always false; nor do we mean things that are valuable but that are, in fact, beyond human attainment or consent. Instead we use the term myth to refer to a story that people tell about themselves, and tell for two purposes. These purposes are, first to explain the world, and second, to celebrate identity and to express values.'

Saint Columba and the Stone of Scone

Columcille (Columba) was born on December 7, 521, at Gartan in County Donegal, Ireland and was later driven out of Kells in Co. Meath, where he had gone to live, by the clergy and he went to, and founded a monastery on, the Island of Iona. Columba ("Dove") was born Crimthann a nephew of Fergus Mac Erca (the then king of Scotland) and Fergus' brother, the then reigning High-king of Ireland, Muircheartach Mac Erca. A High-king who reigned later in COLM'S [Irish name for Columba] career, Ainmire, was his cousin. His father FEIDLIMID, was chieftain of the particular territory of TIR-CONAILL, in which he was born. And his mother, EITHNE, was daughter of a Munster chief, of the line of Cathair Mor. It was only in a time when, as then, the fires of Christianity glowed at white heat, that a man of such, and so many ROYAL ENTANGLEMENTS could turn his back upon wealth, rank and power, and give himself to God. -- "The Story of the Irish Race." The Devin-Adair Co., N.Y. 1949. P.160.

Columba studied under the distinguished "Finian of Clonard" and, in 551, was ordained a priest of the CELTIC CHURCH. During his residence in Ireland, he lived at Kells and founded a number of churches and the famous monasteries Daire Calgaich (Derry) on the banks of Lough Foyle, and Dair-magh (Durrow) in King's county. As a member of the Celtic church, which was founded DIRECTLY upon the teachings of the Apostles of Christ who reached Britain, with Joseph of Arimathaea and Virgin Mary, shortly after the death of Christ, Columba observed the CORRECT PASSOVER (not the Babylonian Mystery religion's Ishtar-Easter) and evidently kept God's true SABBATH day (Saturday NOT the Babylonian's SUN-day, the day of SUN-worship). That is why the Irish catholic clergy censured him in 563 and drove him out of Kells and Ireland, as recorded by Adamnan.

The island of Iona, where Columba went in 563, was part of the Scotic Dalriada; colonized and ruled by the (Irish) Scots. King Conal, who at this time reigned there, was a direct descendant of Fergus Mor Mac Erc and of the TIR-CONAILL family. He was, in fact, Columba's own kinsman! To his kinsman the king made a grant of land where Columba and his disciples could build a home and establish a monastery.

One of the first things Columba did upon his arrival was to visit and pay homage to the Pillar-Stone of Jacob which had been placed in the church previously built by his uncle king Fergus. He then expelled the PAGAN Druid priests who inhabited the island. The non-pagan Druids were converted. Iona had been known as INNIS NAN DRUIDHNEAH ("THE ISLAND OF THE DRUIDS"), and was a sacred spot long before Columba made landfall in 563.

After a small settlement was constructed, Iona "developed into the most famous centre of CELTIC CHRISTIANITY, the MOTHER COMMUNITY of numerous monastic houses, whence missionaries were dispatched for the conversion of Scotland and northern England...."("Encyclopedia Britannica." 1943 edition. Vol.12, p.573).

Nine years after Columba arrived in Iona, Conal, king of the Dalriadic Scots in the West of Scotland, passed away. AIDAN, the son of Gauran, succeeded to the throne. Columba was held in such high regard by the clergy and the people; and being related to the recently departed king; that he was selected to perform the CEREMONY OF INAUGURATION on the accession of the new king (on An Faradh - the Inauguration Mound - the Eminence). According to tradition "Columba had been, at first, unwilling to perform this ceremony [crowning of Aidan on the LIA FAIL]; but an ANGEL, as his biographers say, appeared to him during the night, HOLDING A BOOK CALLED 'THE GLASS BOOK OF THE ORDINATION OF KINGS,' which he put into the hands of Columba, and ORDERED HIM TO ORDAIN Aidan king, according to the directions of that book. This LIBER VITREUS (Glass Book) is supposed to have been so called from having its cover encrusted with glass or crystal." ("The History of Ireland," by Thomas Moore. Footnote p.247).

As E. Raymond Capt notes, "Aidan was crowned king of Scotland in a CORONATION RITE THAT HAS BEEN USED EVER SINCE by the succeeding monarches of Scotland and England. The ritual included a CONSECRATION declaring the future of Aidan's children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, exactly as was done by JACOB when he blessed his sons before he died." ("Jacob's Pillar," p.45).

Columba is believed to have slept on a flagstone in Iona with a rock as his pillow. Being himself the custodian of the Bethel - Lia Fail Stone, it is possible, if not actually probable, that the rock he used as his pillow was the Lia Fail - Jacob's pillow - the Stone of Destiny upon which Jacob saw his visions from God.

In the year 597 death came to Columba. During the May of that year, he visited the farm on the west side of the island where his brethren grew the crops necessary for the survival of the settlement. "On SATURDAY of that week he visited the great barn in which was stored the community's stock of food, and rejoiced in the great store he found there, which would insure plenty for his beloved ones for that year. With exceeding earnestness he blessed the barn that it should ever hold and give in plenty to the ardent servants of God. Then he said to those who stood around him: 'THIS DAY IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES IS CALLED SABBATH, which means rest. And this day is indeed SABBATH TO ME, for it is the last day of my laborious life, AND ON IT I REST. And this night...I shall go the way of my fathers.'...At the end of the day, when it came time for the SABBATH VIGILS [evening prayers], having reached the end of a page, he laid down his pen, saying: 'Let Baithen write the rest.' And his last written words were those of the thirty-third psalm -- 'They that seek the Lord shall want no manner of thing that is good.'

So that the first words which his successor...Baithen, was to write were: 'Come, ye children, and hearken unto me. I will teach you the fear of the Lord.'" ("The Story of the Irish Race," by Seumas MacManus. Revised edition. The Devin-Adair Co., Connecticut. 1992. Pp.172-173).
Shortly afterwards, this remarkable man of God, and guardian of the Stone of Destiny, went to his rest.

The Lia Fail Stone was never returned to Ireland, but, as prophesied, stayed in Scotland where all of the Scottish kings were crowned on it up to 1296 A.D. After Fergus the Great was crowned on the Lia Fail it was moved from Dunadd to Iona around A.D. 563, which is the same year that Columba arrived in Iona; then from Iona to Dunstaffnage near Oban and then later still to Scone near Perth.

"In 843 A.D., Kenneth Mac Alpin was crowned on the Lia Fail Stone as the first King of the United Kingdom of the Picts and the Scots. One of his first acts as King was to found a church at Scone (near Perth, Scotland) because it was there that he had gained his principal victory over the Picts.
"King Kenneth 2nd (d.995 A.D.) had the Stone placed on a wooden pedestal in front of the high altar of the Abbey of Scone.... The ancient Abbey of Scone was destroyed in 1559 A.D. at the time of the Reformation. Today... on Moot Hill (the Hill of Credulity) stands a stone chapel, marking the place where the Stone of Destiny had rested and where the kings of Scotland presided over their Parliaments. According to the official Westminster Abbey Guide (book) - 1918 edition, on page 87, "It is said that the following distich had been engraved upon it by Kenneth:-

Ni fallat fatum, Scoti quocunque locatum
Invenient lapidem regnare tenentur ibidem."

Edward the 1st of England (Edward "Longshanks" in the film Braveheart) invaded Scotland and removed the Stone to England in 1296 A.D. Edward took The Lia Fail to London where it was placed in Westminster Abbey and all of the kings of England right up to and including George the 6th were crowned on The Stone of Destiny.

In Westminster Abbey Edward's Chair, in which the succeeding kings and queens of the realm have been inaugurated, is in height six feet and seven inches, in breadth at the bottom thirty-eight inches, and in depth twenty-four inches; from the seat to the bottom is twenty-five inches; the breadth of the seat within the sides is twenty-eight inches, and the depth eighteen inches. At nine inches from the ground is a board, supported at the four corners WITH AS MANY LIONS [SYMBOL OF JUDAH]. Between the seat and this board is ENCLOSED A STONE, commonly called JACOB'S, or THE FATAL (Lia Fail) MARBLE STONE, which is an oblong of about twenty-two inches in length, thirteen inches broad and eleven inches deep; of a steel colour, mixed with some veins of red. HISTORY RELATES THAT THIS IS THE STONE WHEREON THE PATRIARCH JACOB LAID HIS HEAD IN THE PLAINS OF LUZ (BETHEL). Genesis 35:6 So Jacob came to Luz, which [is] in the land of Canaan, that [is], Bethel,
Some Scots have always maintained that the real Scottish Coronation Stone was a different colour and shape and it never left Scotland; but that a fake was foisted on the English soldiers of Edward "Longshanks" by the Abbot of Scone, who knew in advance that Edward's soldiers were coming to take the stone from the Scots.

The only logical conclusion that can be drawn from all of the facts; prophecies and legends; using the fact that the simplest answer is usually the right one; is the only conclusion that fits perfectly with all of them.

I know from various sources that there were in fact two stones in Scotland; one of which I will call (1) the Stone of Destiny (bluish/purplish steel colour with veins of red) and the other (2) the Scottish Regal (black marble), for ease of explanation.

Some of the ancient chroniclers state that the Scottish Regal Stone was hollowed like a seat or chair, others that it was black; marble; carved; sculptured; that it had an inscription; that it had metal bands around it with metal hooks on all four corners by which to carry it.
There are what appear to be two conflicting stories about the Stone of Destiny and how it came to Scotland at two different times, being brought by two different people by similar but nevertheless two different routes, which most historians have tried to lump together and which, like a square peg and a round hole, do not fit. This has caused great confusion for them and also for the readers of their history books. The reason that these two stories do not fit together is because although they are similar in content, they are in fact two totally separate stories about two separate stones* that were used for the same purpose by two separate branches of the same people that historians have tried to make into one and therein lies the cause of the confusion.

* It became a common practice for nations to have a special stone or stone chair that they used for coronations.

One story from the "Chronicles of Scotland" by Hector Boece relates how (in 1300 BC) Gathelus (Gallo) and his wife Scota who married in Egypt; then sojourned in Spain before coming (or their descendants) to Pictland (now Scotland) with the black marble Regal Stone used as the Coronation Stone by the Zarah (Red Lion) branch of Judah.

The other tells how (in 583 BC - 700 years after Gathelus and Scota) Jeremiah brought king Zedekiah's daughter Tamar "Teia" (Tea) Tephi and the Stone of Destiny - Jacob's Pillar (Bethel) used as the Coronation Stone by the Pharez (Golden Lion) branch of Judah from Jerusalem to Ireland, via Egypt, Gibraltar, Spain and Cornwall and that after more than a thousand years at Tara, it was brought to Dunadd in Western Scotland (the Eastern Dalriada) by Fergus Mor mac Erc in c. 500 AD.

The confusion has come about because people have tried to amalgamate the two stories, instead of realising that they are about different people and stones (700 years apart). The key to the mystery would be Kenneth MacAlpin who was descended from Teia Tephi from the line of David and Eochaidh mac Duach from the line of Zarah on his patriarchal side and whose mother was a Pictish princess and it was he who united the Picts and Scots into one kingdom - the kingdom of Scotland at which point the two Coronation Stones came together at Scone.

Then in 1296 when Edward 1st "Longshanks" decided to take the Scottish Coronation Stone from Scone, Abbot Thomas kept the Scottish Regal (Gathelus') black marble stone that had been the throne of the Picts and gave the Stone of Destiny (Bethel - Jacob's Pillar) to Edward 1st's soldiers, thereby fulfilling the third overturn prophesied by God in Ezekiel 21:27. Abbot Thomas was then still able to crown Robert the Bruce on the Scottish Regal as king of Scotland at Scone in 1306 and was subsequently arrested by Edward; taken to England; imprisoned; kept incommunicado in chains until he died without revealing the whereabouts of the Scottish Regal, which was found in 1819 at Dunsinane and reported to have been taken to London.

There are two accounts of this part of the story from the early nineteenth century of a possible original stone at Dinsinnan/Dunsinane, the site of Macbeth's Castle just a few miles from Scone. One account, that has been passed down through generations of the Earls of Mansfield who have possessed the lands at Scone for almost 400 years, is that farm lads who, due to a landslide brought on by torrential rain, discovered a fissure in the rocky hillside, and, on exploration, found themselves in a chamber containing "a slab of stone covered with hieroglyphics and supported by four short stone legs" The second account was reported in the London Morning Chronicle of 2nd of January 1819, telling how, during excavations among the castle ruins, ground collapsed and workmen fell into an underground vault which contained "a large stone weighing about 500 pounds which is pronounced to be of the meteoric or semi-metallic kind". The report goes on to say that the stone was shipped to London for inspection. Nothing has been heard of it since then.

It is this black marble stone found in 1819 that is the Scottish Regal belonging to the Scots and it should be on display in Edinburgh Castle or Scone Palace, not the Scottish sandstone fake made by Baillie Robert Gray of Glasgow in the 1920's and left at Arbroath Abbey on 11th April 1951 that Elizabeth 2 was crowned upon; nor the real Bethel Stone of Destiny that is currently held either by Ian Hamilton or his friends and has been since 25/12/1950 and belongs in Ireland, at Royal Tarah, from where it was borrowed by Fergus Mor mac Erc, from his brother Muircheartach the king of Tarah, in 500 AD.

It's a well-known fact that as London was being bombed by German Luftwaffe during World War 2, contingency safety plans were written-up to protect The Stone. Not until the 1950's was it revealed that the then Prime Minister of Canada was the only person outside a group numbering no more than 10 men, caretakers of the Relics at Westminister Abbey who knew where The Stone was hidden on the Abbey grounds. NO similar plans had been made to secrete away the Crown Jewels.
The Coronation Chair with the Stone in it were kept for a time in Winchester Cathedral.
In "Jacob's Pillar", E. Raymond Capt, Artisan Sales 1977, writes, "Dean Stanley, one-time custodian of the Stone , in his book Memorials of Westminster Abbey, sums up its historical importance in these words; "It is the one primeval monument which binds together the whole Empire. The iron rings, the battered surface, the CRACK which has all but rent its solid mass asunder, bear WITNESS of the English Monarchy -- an element of poetic, patriarchal, heathen times... carries back our thoughts ... a link which unites the Throne of England to the traditions of Tara and Iona" (2nd Edit. pg. 66). Capt (p. 57). The final breaking of The Stone would witness the end of the reign of the Line of David and the transfer of the sovereignty to Joseph/Ephraim (Genesis 49:10, 22-24).

In appearance the rugged surface of The Stone of Destiny is of a steely dull-purplish colour, varying somewhat, and with some reddish veins. It is composed of calcareous sandstone and imbedded in it are a few pebbles; one of quartz and two others of a dark material (porphyrite or andesite?). Its shape is roughly "pillow-like" being about 26" in length; 16" in width, and 10.5" in depth. Across its surface runs a crack and some chisel-marks are still visible on one or two sides. It appears to have been in the process of being prepared for building purposes, but was discarded before being finished.

In preparation for king George 6th's coronation, The Stone was temporarily removed from the Coronation Chair, and a photograph was taken of it. This photograph disclosed that a groove runs right across The Stone from ring to ring. From its appearance this groove was not cut, but was clearly the result of friction from a single pole being passed across from ring to ring. Such an indentation and wearing-away of material indicates the enormous amount of carrying that The Stone was subjected to. If, as it appears, a single pole was used, because of the weight of The Stone (458 lbs.) it is probable that more than two persons actually carried The Stone.
Ian Hamilton, a Scottish Nationalist, studying law at Glasgow University; not realising that he was being inspired by God to do it in fulfillment of His Prophecy to Ezekiel; decided something had to be done about recovering The Stone from England, and, when he met Kay Matheson at the Covenant party in October 1950, he found her in a similar frame of mind. He got money from a Glasgow businessman who had been involved in the previous nineteen-thirties attempt to liberate The Stone.

In the early hours of Christmas morning (clue) in 1950, the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) was removed from Westminster Abbey by four Scottish Nationalists:- Kay Matheson, Ian Hamilton, Gavin Vernon and Alan Stuart, and taken back to Scotland, with the assistance of two new members of the team: Johnny Josselyn and Bill Craig.

Big Ben struck 4 a.m. as Kay Matheson drove the Anglia into a lane at Palace Yard by the Abbey. Ian Hamilton parked the known car on nearby Millbank. She stayed in the car as the other broke into the Abbey near Poets' Corner and made for the Confessor's Chapel. Hamilton laid his coat reverently on the ground to receive the Stone, but it wouldn't budge.* He pulled one of the rings, and suddenly it was sliding towards him as easily as though THE HANDS OF ANGELS WERE HELPING. To his horror he realised that only part of the sandstone (porphyry) block was attached to the ring.

* Towards the end of December 1950 four young students visited Westminster Abbey with a plan to remove the Coronation Stone and take it back to Scotland. Those months of preparation should have been devoted to removing 458 pounds of sandstone from England to Scotland, especially on Christmas day, proves that at least they knew a great deal more about the Stone than most people. They succeeded in their plan. When the disappearance was discovered, the hue and cry was unprecedented. The practice they had on removing a stone of similar proportions in Glasgow (weighing 336 lbs.) turned out to be of little use for two reasons, (1) the Coronation Stone was heavier by far (122 lbs. heavier), and (2) it was cracked diagonally across the surface, and broke in the course of its removal.

"SNP pioneer knew the 'real' story":

A woman who died last week in her 100th year may have taken the secret of the Stone of Destiny to the grave. Margaret "Pearl" Cook, one of the five founders of the SNP in 1927, told relatives that she knew where the "real" stone was.

    Miss Cook was in the "inner circle" of nationalist supporters who planned the audacious snatch of the stone from Westminster Abbey in 1950. Her nephew Bill Simpson, 58, said that Miss Cook had hinted strongly before she died that the stone handed back was a fake.
"Glasgow Herald" - Wednesday July 17th, 1996 (News Focus section, page 7). Report by Rob Robertson and Carlos Alba.

"The X-ray files: how historic secrets over a bizarre theft were finally unlocked before the press -

VERDICT WRITTEN IN STONE".
"In a small reading room at the General Registrar's Office in Edinburgh yesterday, the secrets of the Stone of Destiny were finally unlocked. . . . an after-hours X-ray investigation carried out on the stone to try to prove once and for all whether the one returned to Westminster Abbey was real.
At the time of the theft in 1950, an endorsement by abbey staff (who had never seen the real Stone) that the correct stone had been returned seemed to satisfy most people's curiosity, despite a claim by Bailie Robert Gray, a well-known SNP activist, that he had kept the real one in Scotland.

It was in Mr Gray's building (Monumental Sculpture) yard (Lambhill Store) in Glasgow that the stone stolen from Westminster, which had broken in two, had been repaired. Crucially, as it would turn out, he used four metal rods (one per cwt. of stone) to put the (real 458 lbs.) stone back together.
It was these rods, three (one per cwt. of stone) of which showed up in an X-ray (of the 336 lbs. fake-stone that Elizabeth Mountbatten was crowned upon and is now on display in Edinburgh Castle since 1996), that the Scottish Office believes helps show that the stone returned to Westminster was the correct one, although the Government papers do show concern only three rather than four were recorded."

(Glasgow) Chief Constable Kerr admitted he had become close friends with Mr Gray, Mr Hamilton and Mr Alan Stewart, who was also involved in the theft of the stone.

In a letter dated August 3, 1973, the police chief said he had lunch occasionally with the men and the theft of the Stone of Destiny was brought up.

"Eventually, all the gaps were filled in (on the theft) by both them and myself", he said.
The police chief said that Mr Gray, who repaired the broken stone and claimed he had kept it after the repair, had confessed over a drink that he was worried about getting a prison sentence over his involvement.
 

Therefore the stone that Elizabeth was crowned on in 1953 and then returned to Edinburgh in 1996 is absolutely without doubt a fake.  Q.E.D.
 
Heaving it like a rugby ball, he sprinted out to dump it in the car. Dashing back into the Abbey, he helped manoeuver the main part onto his coat. They started to slide it out through the door. Suddenly Kay started the car. Hamilton left the others, ran down the lane and leapt into the passenger seat. What was she thinking about? They weren't ready to leave yet.

Kay whispered 'A policeman is coming towards us' and promptly melted into Hamilton's arms. So affected was the constable by the young lovers that he spent time kindly explaining where they could find a darkened car-park. When they knew the Anglia's number was also now on record, Kay decided to get her part of The Stone out of London, immediately. 'We didn't break it, you know. It had been cracked by a suffragette's bomb.'

Not true, they did break it as is obvious from reading Ian Hamilton's book "No Stone Unturned" page 83, para 4,  "I shall not forget what the faint light revealed, for I had pulled a section of the Stone away from the main part, . . ."

Para 5:- "'We've broken Scotland's luck,' came Alan's awful whisper.

 I shone the torch on the break. Suddenly I saw that the greater area of the break was much darker than the thin wafer round the top edge (which broke cleanly when they dropped the Stone). The Stone had been cracked for years, and they had not told us."

Hamilton also confessed to breaking the Stone in his later book "A Touch of Treason", Lochar 1990, page 55, para 3, line 15:- "The three of us heaved at the Stone, tugging and pulling, getting in each other's way. It came out with a thump on to the floor, and broke into two pieces, . . ."
last line:- "I betray myself. So often have I been asked about that moment, and how I felt . . . we broke the thing." Hamilton confesses again in "The Taking of the Stone of Destiny", Lochar 1991, page 81, para 5:- "'We've broke it,' I said (to Kay)." So the clean part of the break is where Ian Hamilton and friends broke the already long-time cracked Stone.

A traffic light stopped her outside Harrods in Knightsbridge. When she started off again there was a loud thump. She pulled in. 'Ian hadn't closed the boot properly, and the Stone (broken off piece weighing 90 lbs. - page 119, "No Stone Unturned", para 3:- "that bit of the Stone weighs ninety pounds.") had landed in the middle of the road. I had to lift it back in again'. She got safely out of London.

Meanwhile, Hamilton had collected the spare car from Millbank. The other two members of his team had vanished. Hamilton dragged the Stone to the car and end-over-end, he heaved the Stone onto the back seat. Page 90, "No Stone Unturned", para 3:- 'The Stone was still lying where the other two (Gavin Vernon and Alan Stuart) had left it. I caught hold of one end, and dragged it to the car. It came without the slightest difficulty. I raised it up on one end, and gently lowered that end into the car. The car went down on its springs, and I thought it (the car) was going to beetle over on top of me. I seized the other end. It meant that I had to lift the whole weight (368 lbs. - the piece that had broken off weighed 90 lbs. and 90+368=458 lbs., which is the weight of the real Stone of Destiny) until it passed top dead centre and I could lower it into the car. I think it went quite easily. I do not remember straining . . . Let the cynics laugh and Archbishops howl "Sacrilege!" but THE HANDS OF GOD WERE OVER MINE (helping me to lift 368 lbs. weight - almost three times Hamilton's own weight of 9 stones 7 lbs.*) when I (read We - Hamilton and God**) lifted that Stone.'

* "No Stone Unturned", page 44, para 2, line 3:- "This baby, of course, weighed four hundredweights, and as I weighed only nine and a half stones, . . ."

"The Taking of the Stone of Destiny", page 35, para 5, line 3:- "This baby weighed four hundredweight, and as I am only five foot six and weigh nine and a half stone, . . ."

** In "A Touch of Treason", Lochar 1990, Ian Hamilton stated, on Page 55, para 3, line 15:- "The three of us heaved at the Stone, tugging and pulling, getting in each other's way. It came out with a thump on to the floor, and broke into two pieces, . . ."

page 56, para 2, line 4:- "Then we bumped it down the steps (on his coat) to the nave. It was heavy, and three of us could not have carried it between us." (and that is why Gavin Vernon and Alan Stuart had dropped and broken it, and it was at that exact moment, as it came out free from the Chair, that they found "to their cost" that it weighed more than four hundredweights [458 lbs.] and not three hundredweights [336 lbs.] like the replica stone Bertie Gray had made in the late 1920's, that they had practised on before going to Westminster, and which they ultimately left at Arbroath Abbey on April 11th 1951 for the authorities to find, that is now on display, where it has been since 1996, in Edinburgh Castle Crown Room and weighs 336 lbs. according to Historic Scotland's official "The Stone of Destiny - Symbol of Nationhood" booklet sold at Edinburgh Castle). They had originally planned for only two young men (Hamilton and Vernon) to remove and carry the Stone, believing it weighed only three hundredweights (336 lbs.), like the Bertie Gray replica stone that they had practised on and had found that two of them could carry. Otherwise, if they had known before-hand that the Real Stone of Destiny weighed more than four hundredweights and three of them could not carry it, they would have taken at least two more people with them to help carry it. It would have been extremely stupid of them, for two of them to go all the way to London, to try to remove the Stone, without practising with Gray's replica first and being absolutely sure that the two of them would be able to carry it. So they had to have believed it weighed three hundredweights; like the replica Bertie Gray had made in the 1920's and they had practised with; right up until the moment that "to their cost", they found it weighed more than four hundredweights and they were unable to even hold it, never mind carry it, and they dropped and broke it - symbolising the end of the line for the tribe of Judah's sovereignty and the beginning of the final overturn of the sovereignty from the tribe of Judah to Shiloh - Genesis 49:10. Therefore, there is absolutely no possibility that Ian Hamilton could have lifted the Stone into the car and up onto the back-seat, unless, as he rightly said, God helped him to lift that Stone, in fulfillment of His Prophecy, in Genesis 49:10 and Ezekiel 21:27. No other analysis of the facts makes sense.

Filled with wild elation, he drove South - the police would block all roads North. A good idea - but how do you know which way is South in an unfamiliar town in the dark? When dawn came he was still being misdirected around London by strangers. Incredibly, he spotted Vernon and Stuart (Divine planning and guidance*).

* 'No Stone Unturned', page 91, para 5:- "We had never been in this part of the city before. They were walking without design, and I was driving in a maze, completely lost. All London was open to us. It was a plain MIRACLE (emphasis mine), yet it did not even surprise us."

Vernon was despatched to wait while Hamilton and Stuart sped towards Kent and planted the Stone on a grassy bank. They returned to Westminster, where Hamilton retrieved his coat, and worried about what his father, a Paisley tailor, would say about the dreadful state he had got it into.
Hamilton who genuinely revered The Stone, blamed himself for putting it at risk. Kay had invited Stuart to spend New Year at Inverasdale, but instead he found himself driving South again with Hamilton to recover the main portion of the Stone that they had hidden in Kent. The worst thing for Hamilton was not knowing how much the police knew - surely they must have some information?
Hamilton and Stuart set off South in the Stuart family's large Armstrong-Siddeley, down frozen roads on packed snow with the AA warning of blizzards to come. There were two new members of the team: the late Johnny Josselyn, and Bill Craig.

At half past two that (Sunday 31st December 1950) Hogmanay they drove the Stone of Destiny across the border and into Scotland. Later that evening they drove into Glasgow, the whole adventure had cost a total of 70 pounds. They had no idea of what to do with their cargo.
Hamilton phoned Bertie Gray, and while they waited for him outside the King's Theatre in Glasgow, he munched into a fish-supper, sitting on the Stone in the car. 'I had never been in a more bizarre situation'. When Gray arrived he said: 'Drive out towards Stirling. I'VE GOT THE VERY MAN.' (That 'very man' was John Rollo of Rollo Lathes at Bonnybridge*.) All those involved now faced arrest, prosecution and imprisonment. Others were destined to whisk The Stone into hiding.

* Bonnybridge is the place that has the most reported sightings of UFO's in Scotland and the world, according to local Councillor Billy Buchanan who is very friendly, sincere and is bravely and determinedly devoted to pursuing and publicising the truth. Billy is also very interested in the history of The Stone and my explanation of why Bonnybridge is the UFO hotspot of the world. He has searched the world over for someone to explain it to him, and all the experts, world-wide, have been unable to do so. He has gladly accepted my explanation, as it is the only one that makes perfect sense; as only the truth invariably does.

The factory where the Stone was hidden was recently (in 2002) sold and is now owned by Glen McBeath and no longer manufactures lathes, but is an engineering works that offers a complete machining service. The factory is now called Rollo Industries, St. Andrews Works, Bonnybridge.

John Rollo had agreed to hide the Stone on the understanding that he alone would know the whereabouts of the hiding-place. Two weeks after receiving the Stone, Rollo was summoned to Bishopbriggs by David Forrester, secretary of the Covenant committee. There he was handed the smaller fragment of the Stone by Alan Stuart's dad. Returning to Bonnybridge, Rollo hid it under his desk, before passing it to his co-director to hide in his garage.

By March 1951 arrangements to return the Stone were taking place and John Rollo delivered both pieces to an address in Bearsden, where stone-masons began repairs. The fake had to also be broken and repaired, then substituted for the real Stone to be handed to the authorities. The fake, being only three-quarters of the weight of the real Stone, only needed three bronze tubes to repair it, rather than the four that the real Stone needed - one bronze tube per hundred-weight of stone.

Bertie Gray was a monumental sculptor as well as a Glasgow Councillor and vice-chairman of the Covenant, he produced his replica of The Stone (that he made in the 1920's) from his Lambhill store and helped Ian Hamilton and Bill Craig to place the fake Stone, wrapped in the Scottish Flag, on the High Altar of Arbroath Abbey at midday on the 11th April, 1951 and notify the authorities that they could find it there, which they did on the 12th.

The authorities then sent the fake stone (with the three bronze tubes in it), weighing exactly three hundredweight (336 lbs.), which was cut from sandstone that had been quarried near Scone in Perthshire, to London on the 13th and Elizabeth 2 was crowned upon it. Since Elizabeth 2 has never been crowned upon the real Lia Fail/Coronation Stone, she has not been officially crowned queen of Britain, in the eyes of God.

The fake stone, known as the Stone of Scone and weighing 336 lbs. (with the three bronze tubes in it), was sent back to Scotland in 1996, where it is now on public display in Edinburgh Castle.

So what happened to The real Lia Fail - Stone of Destiny after the Scottish Nationalists removed it from Westminster Abbey, and what is The Stone's final Destiny, from which it got its name?
Did the police recover The Stone of Destiny? No! Definitely not! We have God's Word and Promise that they wouldn't.

In 1986 there was an article in a British (Sun?, Daily Record?, The Scotsman?) Newspaper (that I read personally, whilst in Spain) stating that a "death-bed confession" by one of the people/students (the late Johnny Josselyn, or John Rollo who died in 1985?) who helped to return The "Stone" from Westminster Abbey to Scotland in 1950, confirmed that the stone upon which Elizabeth had been crowned was NOT The Stone of Destiny, but was in fact a fake (made by Baillie Robert Gray).

In 1986, "The Scotsman" carried photographs 'supplied by Miss Marjorie S. Brock, who was treasurer of the 1320 Club (Scottish Declaration of Independence, at Arbroath, dated April 6th 1320), no longer in existence'. One photograph was captioned 'The Stone of Destiny, which has been on display in St Columba's Parish Church, Dundee, since June 1972.' The second photograph was of a plaque which read:-

LIA FAIL
The Stone of Destiny has been set here. An appropriate place* for a symbol so venerable and significant in Scottish history. It has been given into the keeping of the Minister and Kirk Session of St Columba's Parish Church, Dundee, by the 1320 Club in association with Baillie (Municipal Officer and Magistrate) Robert Gray, Glasgow, who helped to place the (fake) Stone in Arbroath Abbey on 12 th April, 1951.

 
* It is appropriate that the Stone was kept in Columba's church because he had previously been the guardian of the Stone at Iona.
 
The name of the Minister of Columba's Kirk who took custody of the Stone at his church at Lochee West, in Dundee was John Mackay Nimmo (now deceased) of the Knights Templar. The stone had been left in Edinburgh's Parliament Square for the Knights Templar to collect, in 1965. Later, when Columba's Kirk was closed, and sealed up as unsafe, by the Ministry of Health and Safety, because of all kinds of rot (allegedly), six Knights Templar were chosen and helped by God to rescue the Stone for Him and the iron-grid cover with the brass plaque on it and they were chased, in their Range Rover, all over Scotland.
John Mackay Nimmo went to his grave believing the stone in his custody was the real Stone of Destiny, as has been recently affirmed by his widow, Jean Nimmo (Daily Mail, Thursday July 8th 1999).
 
Was the condemning of the Kirk (Church) of Columba in Dundee, by the Ministry, a dirty trick?
Did the "Ministry of Dirty-tricks" try to get control of the "Stone"; after the 1986 "death-bed confession" newspaper article in (The Sun? Daily Record? The Scotsman?) tipping them off, then followed by The Scotsman article also in 1986 telling them, where it was; by falsely condemning Columba's Church as unsafe and sealing it up with the "Stone" inside it, so that the truth could be sealed-in and covered-up and no-one would find out, or be able to prove, that Elizabeth has never really been crowned?

I have personally inspected this stone on Monday 5th July 1999; the iron grid cover and the aforementioned brass plaque that have been safely and religiously guarded by the honourable Scottish Knights Templar, for more than forty years. This stone is also a Scottish sandstone fake, made to look like a cess-pit lid, to fit the old Scottish legend about Edward the First having been deceived, and fobbed-off with a cess-pit lid from Scone. It was presumably also made by Baillie Robert Gray, as well as the fake that has been on display since 1996 in Edinburgh Castle, upon which Elizabeth 2 was crowned, that I personally inspected on Monday 12th July 1999. Bertie Gray is known to have made at least two copies, and to have given this one to the Knights Templar in 1965.

Therefore Ian Hamilton Q.C.; Kay Matheson; Alan Stuart; Gavin Vernon and Bill Craig and/or their associates must still have the real Stone of Destiny hidden somewhere.

But what of the real Stone of Destiny's final destiny, that it got its name from?

As the Lia Fail is God's Throne of Israel and He knows all things before they happen, we can look at The Book He gave us (The Bible) to find out what that Destiny is and what will happen to the Lia Fail. The following is an excerpt from God's prophecy out of The Old Testament Book of His Prophet Ezekiel:-

21:26 Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Remove the diadem (sovereignty), and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low (Line of Zarah), and abase [him that is] high (Line of Pharez).

21:27 I will overturn (1), overturn (2), overturn (3), it: and it shall be no [more], [overturned] UNTIL he come whose Right it is; and (4) I will give it [him - Shiloh / Christ (Genesis 49 v 10)].

Verse 26 above tells us that The Throne (Lia Fail) will be (was) taken from the Pharez branch (him that was high) of the tribe of Judah in Jerusalem and given to the Zarah branch (him that was low) of the tribe of Judah, who had settled in Ireland.

This happened when king Zedekiah of Jerusalem from the Pharez branch of the tribe of Judah, was overthrown by king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and princess Teia Tephi, Zedekiah's daughter brought the Lia Fail Stone to Ireland and married Eochaidh Mac Earc/Duach/Dui, the high king of Ireland who was from the Zarah branch of Judah in the sixth century B.C., as shown symbolically on the Ulster Flag.

The above was the first of the four overturns mentioned in verse 27. The second overturn was when the Lia Fail was taken from Ireland to Scotland in c. 500 A.D., overturning the Throne from the kings of Ireland, and the third overturn was when the Throne was removed from the Scots and taken to England in 1296.

God then tells us in the second half of verse 27, that the Throne shall be overturned no more, UNTIL He (Shiloh - Christ) comes whose Right it is; and that He (God) will give it to him (Christ). If we go to Genesis 49:9-10; we are told that the sceptre (sovereignty) will not depart from the line of Judah until Shiloh (Christ) comes (and then it will depart from Judah). In Genesis 49:22-24 we are told that from Joseph's seed (not Judah's) will The Shepherd (Christ) come.

The fourth and final overturn began on Christ-mas Day in 1950 when God inspired and Christ assisted four Scottish Nationalists to remove the real Lia Fail from Westminster Abbey for Him and replace it with the fake (Stone of Scone).

King George 6th knew of this prophecy in Ezekiel 21:27 concerning the British Throne - the Stone of Destiny - and the fourth and final overturn and was vexed and afraid that the loss portended the end of his dynasty, as Ian Hamilton states in his book "The Taking of the Stone of Destiny", Lochar 1991, page 139, "Forty years on" line 8:-

"Privately we learned that he (George 6th) had a superstitious fear that the loss portended the end of his dynasty."

George 6th must have known, as must his daughter Elizabeth, that the stone that was left at Arbroath Abbey on 11th April 1951 was a Scottish sandstone fake, and she must have known, from that, that she was cursed by God and never really crowned. After George 6th died, Elizabeth Mountbatten delayed her coronation, whilst desperately seeking and hoping to find the genuine Coronation Stone, but, when it was not found and she had to hold a coronation ceremony, she flatly refused to have the ceremony televised, because she was afraid that people would see the fake stone, recognise that it was a fake, and know that she was a pretender to the Throne. Mrs. Mountbatten was unable to enforce her will and had her hand forced, by popular-demand, to allow the ceremony to be televised, so she set a firm condition upon the B.B.C. that there must be absolutely no close-up shots, and nothing shown at a closer distance than thirty feet, so that no-one would be able to see a close-up of the fake stone that she knew she was pretending to be crowned upon. She must also have known the prophecy, as did her great, great grandmother Queen Victoria, who said that if Christ came to take the Throne, she would immediately step down and give it to its rightful owner, and everyone of them knew it down to George 6th. It is unthinkable that George 6th would not also have taught this to his children - that Christ would come one day and rightfully claim the British Throne, in fulfillment of prophecy. Elizabeth must have known that Christ was already here; because the Throne had been removed from her, in fulfillment of prophecy; and that one day during her reign Christ would rightfully claim the Throne.

Elizabeth 2 who is descended from the royal line of David from the tribe of Judah, was then crowned on that fake stone in 1953, so in actual fact was never officially crowned queen of Britain in the eyes of God; as God Himself prevented her from being, by having the Stone taken from her.
This fulfills the first half of the prophecy given in Genesis chapter 49 (the sceptre departs from Judah), and all that remains is for Christ to come from Joseph's seed (Ephraim's line - the English) and claim His Rightful place on God's Throne - Bethel - The Lia Fail - Stone of Destiny - which Christ did, officially, by High Court Writ, in Sheffield High Court, on 13th of June in 1988 as prophesied, and then be given it, by God, very soon, according to Nostradamus.

Regarding the Stone, "Professor Edward F. Odlum (1850-1935), B.A.; M.A.; B.Sc.; F.R.G.S.; F.A.S.; F.R.C.I., Inst.; F.A.G.S.; a geologist; scientist; educator, and lecturer -- University of Victoria College, Cobourg, (now located in the University of Toronto), Ontario, Canada, was "intrigued with the idea that perhaps its source could be found in Palestine, as suggested by the ancient records of Ireland. Professor Odlum discovered a stratum of sandstone near the Red Sea at Bethel in Palestine geologically the same as the Coronation Stone. British Royal geneology traces its heritage to all the Royal households throughout Europe from the Spanish Monarchy to the last Royals of Russia and the Danes, Swedes and nearly every monarch in between.

"One of the most significant facts about the Coronation Stone is that no similar rock formation exists in the British Isles. Professor Totten -- Science, Yale University, after making a thorough examination of the Stone made the following statement: "The analysis of The Stone shows that there are absolutely no quarries in Scone or Iona where-from a block so constituted could possibly have come, nor yet from Tara." The sandstone in Scotland and Ireland is dissimilar to the Stone.

"The Stone, weighing over 300 pounds (458 lbs.), is rectangular being about 26" in length; 16" in width; and, 10.5" in depth. Across its surface runs a crack and some chisel-marks are still visible on one or two sides. There are two large iron rings (or some rust resistant alloy), one at each end of the Stone which hang loosely from eyes, made of similar metal let into the Stone." (E. Raymond Capt, "Jacob's Pillar", Artisan Sales, 1977, p. 58-59)
 
 
excerpt from:-
The Story of Ireland - 1905 (before 25/12/1950)
re-published in "Destiny" magazine in May 1946
By Professor C. A. L. Totten - Science, Yale University
 
from Part III, page 166:

The coronation chair is a large, solid old-fashioned chair, at least 600 years of age.  In place of castors it is supported by four carved lions facing outwards.  About nine inches from the floor there is a shelf or bottom board, and between it and the chair's seat, sitting on it as on a shelf, is the coronation stone.  In its present shape it is an oblong block of stone some 26-27 inches long, 16-17 inches broad, and 10-11 inches deep, and is of a bluish-steel color, mixed with veins of red.  At each end there is a large iron ring, much worn and rusted.  They have the appearance of being intended for handles to assist in transporting.  The stone is old and looks ready to crack into pieces.  It has rested in its present place for 610 years. (1296-1906.  Original date of publication.)  In the treaty of Northampton, made subsequent to the conquest of Scotland (1328), it was decided that England should return to the Scots what they had stolen (Edward 1st).  But did they do it?  No.  For while they gave up the records and royal regalia, they utterly refused to yield up the old ragged stone.  At the same time the Scots would have preferred to have lost all else and saved it.
 Mr. Lowerley, geologist, gives the characteristics of The Stone as follows:

 "A sandy granular stone; a sort of sienite, chiefly of quartz; with light debris of sienite, chiefly of quartz, with light and reddish brown felspar, and also light and dark mica, with probably some dark green hornblende intermixed; some fragments of a reddish grey clay slate, or shist, are likewise included in its composition." (Please read again the Oxford Dictionary definition of Porphyry above and compare it with this description. - JAH).

 Futile attempts have been made to trace the origin of the stone to Scottish quarries and to those of Ireland.
 
The stone on display in Edinburgh Castle since 1996; upon which Elizabeth 2 was crowned in 1953; is of a different colour; made not from porphyry/quartz weighing 458 lbs. but from "pinkish-buff" Perthshire sandstone, weighing only 336 lbs. according to Historic Scotland's official "The Stone of Destiny - Symbol of Nationhood" booklet sold at Edinburgh Castle; it has no pole wear-mark between the metal carrying rings like the pre-1950 original has; no Latin distich engraved upon it and therefore is obviously a fake.

Johnny McEvoy
 
This poem by Johnny McEvoy states the only way to prove who is the Rightful Sovereign of the British peoples and also which is the real Stone, because the real Stone of Destiny, according to legend, has a very special and unique quality. Whenever there is a dispute about who is the Rightful Sovereign of His people, God makes the Stone scream when the Rightful Sovereign touches the real Stone of Destiny. This scream can be heard from coast to coast, so that everyone hears it and there can no longer be any doubt or dispute.

Ian Hamilton; Kay Matheson and friends should now bring out the real Stone of Destiny and facilitate a contest between Elizabeth 2 and Christ, the King of kings, the Rightful Sovereign whom Elizabeth swore to kneel and serve when she was crowned in 1953, but then, in an enormous act of treachery and treason against God, refused to do so and had Christ's High Court Writ demanding the Throne rejected, under her illegal laws, in 1988. Ian Hamilton and friends will then; instead of being prosecuted by Elizabeth 2; be given a "Royal Pardon" by Christ and be thanked for physically helping him to remove The Stone from Elizabeth 2 and keeping it safely out of her grasp.
The returning of the Lia Fail to Ireland by Ian Hamilton would unite the Scots and Irish and bring peace to the province of Ulster, as Hamilton himself desires. It would do this because it would reveal their common heritage and stock: both being from the same Scottish and Pictish (Cruithne) ancestors and descended; like their racial cousins the Irish Danites; from the Ten "lost" Tribes of Israel, having been wrongfully divided by the influence of outside forces, both English and Roman for their own political gain.
 
"One final note: In the Scottish National Library there is a Gaelic manuscript (by Dugald the Scot, son of McPhail, in A.D. 1467) containing the complete genealogies of the Scottish kings, showing their descent through the Irish kings by way of Judah, Jacob-Israel and Isaac back to Abraham.
In Windsor Castle there is also a genealogical table showing the descent of the British kings from David through the Irish and Scottish lines. Thus the Monarchy existed long before there was a British Nation." Capt (p. 55)


Columba of Kells and Iona by JAH

Columba or CrimthannColumba (real name Crimthann) was born a prince; on December 7, 521 A.D., at Gartan in County Donegal; a nephew of Fergus Mor Mac Erca (the then king of Scotland) and Fergus' brother, the then reigning High-king of Ireland, Muircheartach Mac Erca. His father Feidlimid, descended from the Ui Neill, was chieftain of the territory of Tir-Conaill, in which he was born. And his mother, Eithne, from royal ancestry in Leinster, was daughter of a Munster chief, of the line of Cathair Mor. It was only in a time when, as then, the fires of Christianity glowed at white heat for some, that a man of such, and so many royal entanglements could turn his back upon wealth, rank and power like Moses had done, and give himself to God.

Columba came to Kells and built his house into the grave-mound of the great Ith Cian king of Spain. He did this because he greatly revered Ith Cian; from whose name Cian aneas Mor, or Kells as it is known today, takes its name; and he wanted to be near to his grave, so he could try to communicate with him; absorb his energy and seek knowledge from him. If the original grave of Ith Cian was a stone cairn, then it is probable that the stones of Ith Cian's Cairn were used to build the present Columba's House.

Diarmuid Mac Caroll ( Cerbaill), High king of Tara from 539 until 558, is said to have granted the dun of Cenannus to Columba in the sixth century for the purpose of establishing a monastery but it appears that the grant took place after the death of Diarmait.

Columba's House, Kells.

 This revering of Ith Cian by Columba is confirmed by his prophecy titled Senanus (Cian aneas - "Cian from the South") in which the physical Second-Coming of Christ, to be King of Ireland, is foretold: an event that will finally defeat the English Davidic monarchy, unite Ireland under Christ's Sovereignty and bring peace and prosperity to all of its people.

SENANUS (ra chan - riot).
Impart to me (Columba), O Senanus (Cian aneas Mor),
Information concerning the latter ages of the world;
What shall be the condition of the race of people,
Who will not observe rectitude in their judgments.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
The King (Christ) son of Saxon will come
To join them across the sea;
He will part with the sovereignty
Of the Gall in the country whence he will come.
The Galls and the Gaels of Ireland,
Will unite in one confederation;
Against the forces of the Saxons,
Their confederacy cannot be dissolved.
The King (Christ) son of Saxon (Isaac's sons) will come
At the head of his forces;
In consequence of the protection he will extend to them,
Ireland shall be freed from her fears.
One monarch (Christ) will rule in Ireland,
Over the Galls and the pure Gaels;
From the reign of that Man,
The people shall suffer no destitution.

 
Columba's House at KellsColumba and his niece the , who made Kells world-famous and without whom no-one outside of it would ever have heard of Kells, followed, as closely as he was able, from the information he had, the true teaching of Christ, as it had been brought to the British Isles by Jesus' own Disciples (the Culdees), who came with "the rich man" Joseph of ArimathaeaVirgin Mary and continued Jesus' work of founding and establishing the first christian community in the world, at Glastonbury, in Britain, as has been confirmed by numerous Vatican Councils.

They came to the British Isles, where Jesus had grown up; for safety, because it was the only place not under Roman domination, when they fled the Holy Land during the Roman persecution of "The Followers of The Way (Christ)" and Mary returned home to her native England. The Blessed Virgin Mary; like Columba was in Ireland, in his day; was a member of the English royal family of her day. Jesus had commanded his twelve disciples (including Peter) not to go into the way or cities of the Gentiles (including Rome which Peter never even visited) but to go to the lost sheep of the "House of Israel" - the Ten "Lost" Tribes, which is another good reason why they came to the British Isles. Brit means The Covenant in Hebrew and in Welsh and British Isles means the Islands of The Covenant People - the Israelite People.
 
Matthew 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go NOT into the way of the Gentiles, and into [any] city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the "House of Israel".
 
Columba was tall and striking, powerfully built and with a dominating personality. He was a man of obvious ability with the skills of a poet and scholar as well as a natural leader. He was perhaps the greatest of all the Irish monks and certainly the most famous.

He was regarded by his contemporaries as a visionary, capable of astonishing predictions; prophecies and insights, reputedly a worker of miracles, a spiritual father-figure of awesome authority and undoubtedly very charismatic. He was known to be warm-hearted; generous and talented, with a hatred of injustice and oppression.

Columba ("Dove") faithfully kept the true Sabbath (Saturday) and The Passover, as Jesus taught his true followers to do, before Christ's teachings became corrupted by Simon Pater, the sorcerer in the Book of Acts, and by others. It was Simon Pater; not Simon Peter who condemned him; that went to Rome. Simon Pater incorporated the teachings of Babylon into the Gospel and corrupted the teaching, by forming an organised-religion with priests worshipping on the Babylonian sun-worship religion's day of worship - SUNday; and celebrating the Sun Festival of Yuletide and the worship of Ishtar / Easter, a Babylonian goddess of fertility; hence "Ishtar Eggs", a fertility symbol, instead of celebrating the Passover with the sacrificial lamb, as Jesus did. The "Last Supper" was at Passover, not Ishtar, as explained in my Booklet "Passover Lamb not Easter Bunny." Easter/Ishtar is held at a different time of year and has absolutely nothing to do with Jesus.
This adherance to the true teaching of Jesus put the Prophet Columcille ("Dove") into conflict with the Roman church and they held a synod in 563 A.D., at nearby Teltown, to censure him, as a direct result of which he left Kells and his native Ireland and went to live on Iona (Jonah - "Dove"), where his uncle king Fergus Mor Mac Erc had built a church, wherein had been placed the Lia Fail Stone, that Fergus had taken from Tara to Scotland, for himself to be crowned upon. Columcille named a hill on Iona: "Cairn of the Back to Ireland", to leave a permanent reminder, that would forever show his disgust, at his treatment by the Irish clergy.

The first thing that Columba did on arriving at the Port of the Coracle in Columba's Bay on Iona was to go to his uncle Fergus's church and pay homage to the Lia Fail Stone, which he knew was destined one day, in the far distant future, to be the Throne of Christ's Glory on Earth, at Tara, in Ireland. This was also confirmed by the French Prophet Nostradamus in the sixteenth century, as can be seen in JH’s Booklet "The Prophecies of Nostradamus affecting Meath."
 
 
Once established on Iona, where he became custodian of the Lia Fail Stone, Columba set about making his famous Book of Kells in order to give people what he considered to be the true Gospel and so did not include in it things that he knew had already been corrupted by the church, in order to justify the church's own existence, in direct contradiction of Christ's commands to the faithful. He therefore limited the Book of Kells to the Four Gospels.
 
 
Detail from the Book of KellsThe Book of Kells.
 
Columba is believed to have slept on a flagstone in Iona with a rock as his pillow. Being himself custodian of the Bethel - Lia Fail Stone, it is probable, as Columba too had visions from God, that the rock he used as his pillow was the Lia Fail - Jacob's pillow - the Stone of Destiny upon which Jacob saw his visions from God. There is a stone, in the museum at the abbey on Iona, that is wrongly thought to have possibly been Columba's stone pillow.

 It must always have been his (and God's) intention for his Book or a copy of it to return to Kells, to try to enlighten the people of Kells, whom he loved and never forgot, and to haunt the clergy who had driven him out, which is exactly what happened around 800 A.D.

There is a possibility that from Iona along with his Book came his flagstone bed, because a relic known as Columba's Bed which was a stone slab six feet long and one foot thick, was kept in the roof space of Columba's House in Kells, until it was stolen in the 20th century.

His final counsel to his monks in Iona before he died, was: "Be at peace with one another and cherish sincere charity. If you follow the example of The Holy Father, God, the comforter of the good, will assist you and he (the Comforter) will intercede for you. He will not only minister to your needs in this life but will bestow upon you the eternal rewards that are prepared for those who obey His Commandments."

The booklet, that they represent the Twelve Tribes of Israel to whom Jesus commanded that the Gospels were to be preached; the Eagle being the emblem of In the Book of Kells he placed the Four Symbols that no-one except me (JAH) has ever been able to correctly interpret; the Man, the Lion; the Calf and the Eagle. Every historian world-wide has said that they represent the four disciples; as confirmed by historian William Battersby of Navan in his book on this subject; but the historians are all wrong. It is explained in my "Kells and Teltown"Dan, the fifth tribe of Israel - the Irish and Dan-ish people. So Columba was obeying Christ by placing the four symbols in his Book.

The Book known as "The Chief Relic of the Western World" was kept in Columba's church porticus, in Kells, from where it was stolen in 1007 A.D., and, along with the gold cover of the Book, the last few pages of the Gospel of John; that include Peter's denial of Jesus, talk specifically about Christ's thorough interrogation of Peter, about whether Peter loved Christ or not; were removed.

These pages, written under the direction of the Prophet Columcille, were more accurate than in the church's authorised version and so posed a threat to the clergy, who Columba prophesied would only be interested in wealth and power and not in following Christ, without hesitation.
 
Senanus (Cian aneas - Kells):-
The clergy of the holy church,
Will be addicted to pride and injustice;
The advantages they will aim at,
Shall be the possession of worldly substance.
 
Between the sixth and eighth centuries a reform movement occurred, that of the Culdees (from Celi De or Culdich), and Columba was a leading reformer. The term Celi De has been translated as spouse or companion of God and Culdich as the "Servants of God" and "Certain Strangers", particularly strangers from a distance (the fleeing Disciples and Joseph of Arimathaea). The later Culdees wished to return to the stricter standards of the sixth century that had been set by Columba, whom they regarded as a model. But they were a minority group and did not succeed in influencing the wealthy churches. Between the seventh and twelfth centuries the church grew rich, just as Columba had prophesied and Kells became known as the "Splendour of Ireland."

At the time of Columba, in Ireland as elsewhere, only a small number of monks were priests. Learning in the monastic schools was based on the Scriptures and not on church doctrine; rituals and dogma. Columba, the most famous of the founders of monasteries, was himself not a priest of the Roman church, but had been ordained as a minister of the Celtic christian church, whilst he was in Ireland. On Iona he became a Culdee (Servant of the Lord) rather than be a priest, as Jesus had commanded his disciples not to be priests (Matthew 23:8).

Monks loved the Book (Bible) as a messenger of the Word of God and regarded their ascetic life as a sacrifice of the "Self", through prayer; study and manual work, in stark contrast to the rich priests and churches. Columba, even during his lifetime, enjoyed great respect, having renounced his high birth and wealth, preferring to serve God, than to be served by others, as Jesus had taught his disciples who came to Britain as the Culdees.

It was for holding these same principles that; as prophesied by Nostradamus in his Quatrain 3,65; pope John Paul the First was murdered on September the 28th in 1978, after only 33 days in office, in order to protect the church's obscene wealth, that John Paul the First had sworn to give back to the poor that it had been taken from.

It is also reputed that the Culdees (Servants of the Lord) in the British Isles, including Iona where Columba preached; who were considered by the Roman Church to be a threat to them; had a secret book written  by the Apostle John (probably the correct version of his Gospel which Columba included in the Book of Kells and his 3rd Book of Revelation).

The 3rd Book of Revelation is available as part of the "King of kings' Bible", currently available exclusively from - http://i.am/jah/kofkad.htm

So, the question has to be asked. Was the theft of the Book of Kells an "inside job", done by members of the clergy to protect their wealth and power? If so, then the gold cover would have to go missing, to make it look like a robbery. How would a thief obtain access to such a priceless Book that had taken so many years to complete?

The "stolen" (?) Book of Kells was found three months later in the Abbey-field reputedly behind the Christian Brothers house in Kells and was pretty much undamaged, with just the few last pages of John's Gospel missing*. Why only those few pages? Why would the thief not keep the whole Book or destroy it all? Why just these few pages? Were there also notes and warnings from Columba taken from the Culdees' secret Book of John, to and about the church at the back of the Book of Kells, that were also removed? Did it also contain John's Third Book of the Apocalypse Revelation in which Christ condemns all the Priests of the Earth and teaches about re-incarnation and the time of the Second Coming, as being around the year 2000? To quote Shakespeare - Something smells fishy in the state of Dan's mark - the Tuatha de Danaan - the Irish ancestors).

* Some sources say that possibly up to 60 pages are missing from the Gospel of John. The last verse in the Book of Kells is reputed to be John 17:13, which is as follows:- And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my Joy fulfilled in themselves.

The missing pages start with verse 14 onwards; verses 14-17 are as follows:-
 
John 17:14 I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

17:15 I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil (one - Lucifer), [in the world].

17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.

17:17 Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth.

The known section of the Gospel of John that was removed is the section where Jesus, the Lord, contradicts the church's teaching and shows its entire foundation to be only made of, and built on, sand.

It contains the following ten major points:-

1. Disciples would be sanctified through the Truth; the word of God in the Bible; not through a priesthood, exactly as Columba taught.

2. The Twelve Disciples were to remain on Earth, being re-incarnated (John 9:1-2; 5:14) until Christ comes again. This would have destroyed the Church's lucrative business, which says that anyone who gives money to them automatically goes straight to heaven, where Peter has the keys to the Pearly Gates. Peter has never gone to heaven, as he knew he wouldn't, because he had been told so by Jesus and so he asked about John, "If we are all to stay here on Earth; what [shall] this man do?"
 
John 21:21 Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what [shall] this man [do]?
21:22 Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he (also) tarry till I come, what [is that] to thee? follow thou me.
 
3. Jesus told Peter that the Holy Grail was not a physical object but the "bitter cup" he had been given by Father and must drink: the Self-sacrifice of the Crucifixion, that they and everyone must take up their cross daily and drink, before they could go to heaven.
 
John 18:11 Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the "Cup" which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it? (the "Holy Grail")
 
4. Peter, even after already having been severely reprimanded, in front of everyone, and told, "Get thee behind me Satan" (in Matthew 16), still draws his sword and yet again tries, for Satan, to prevent God's Will from being carried out.
 
Matthew 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
 
5. It contains also Peter denying three times that he even knew Jesus.

6. The truth about Bar Abbas - the Son of Abbas (Father), which would indicate that Jesus was married because he could not have a son unless he was married. That son could be either his own flesh and blood or his step-son, but, either way, he would have had to have been married for that to be the case.

7. The Truth that Jesus was not poor because he had a coat that was finely woven without seams and was so desirable that the Romans drew lots for it.

8. The truth also about Mary not being a perpetual virgin; having married Alphaeus Cleophas after Joseph's death and having had at least seven children:

- Jesus; James; Jude; Simon; Joses and at least two sisters (Matthew 13:55-56) one of whom was called Salome (Mark 15:40).
 
Matthew 13:55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Jude?

13:56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this [man] all these things?
 
9. That the rich man, Joseph of Arimathaea, was his close blood-relative, or he could not legally have approached Pilate to claim the body.

10. That Peter did not love Jesus.

The correct version of the last few pages of John's Gospel that prove Peter did not love Jesus are as follows:-
 
John 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, [son] of Jonah, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Lord; thou knowest that I like thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

21:16 He saith to him again the second time, Simon, [son] of Jonah ("Dove"), lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Lord; thou knowest how much I like thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, [son] of Jonah, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

In the correct translation quoted above, which is what it said in the Book of Kells, Peter admitted that he did not love Christ; he only liked him a lot and the Roman church claims to have built itself upon Peter; instead of on Christ.

Christ knew the Romans would do this and so left his command that Peter must not visit Rome, in Matthew 10:5-6, and also his interrogation of Peter, in John 21:15-17, as an eternal witness that this was the wrong thing to do. Why else would Jesus interrogate Peter, to show he didn't love Jesus, and thereby grieve Peter by asking him three times if Peter loved him? If Peter had answered yes, Jesus would not have asked him twice more and grieved Peter, by, at the same time, in so doing, reminding Peter that he had denied even knowing Jesus, three times, after having arrogantly boasted, that if everyone deserted Jesus he would not, and swearing, before the Crucifixion, that he would die for Jesus.

Doesn't it strike anyone else as being strange and illogical; that if Peter was the most important Disciple, as the church claims, and on whom the Roman church claims it has been built; that there is no Gospel of Peter in the Bible?

I will leave you to ponder and draw your own conclusions about why only the last few pages of the Book written by the Disciple that Jesus is reputed to have loved more than Peter and to whom He uniquely later gave His Apocalypse Revelation were removed and now move on to a much more important matter to us today - Christ's Throne - the Lia Fail.



What is the Lia Fail and why is Ireland called Inis Fail?

The Lia Fail Stone set off towards its destiny, after it was found and used by Jacob as his pillow and then became the Pillar that he anointed; set up at, and named, Bethel, which means the "House of God". Bethel is where Jacob had his name changed from Jacob, which means the "Supplanter" (because he supplanted his brother Esau, with a bowl of potage/soup, for the Birthright of his father Isaac), to Israel, which means the "Champion of God", because he championed God's Cause, the cause of God or good, in the world.

The Stone, from that moment, was predestined to become Christ's Throne on Earth and it was taken by Jacob and his children into Egypt, when there was a famine in the land. The famine caused them to go to live in Egypt with their brother Joseph, whom they had previously sold into slavery and who had, through God's intervention, become the Egyptian pharaoh's right hand man.
Four hundred years later during the Exodus from Egypt under Moses and the Wilderness forty-year punishment wandering, the Lia Fail was carried on a pole, until the Israelites conquered Canaan and built Jerusalem. The Lia Fail or "Stone of Destiny" then became the Throne of king David, who slew Goliath the giant, with a stone from his sling.

Every one of the succeeding kings from David's line were crowned upon the Lia Fail - Jacob's Pillar*; which was kept in God's House, the Holy Temple, built by David's son, king Solomon, on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem; until king Zedekiah was overthrown by king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, for breaking The Covenant. Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon's soldiers destroyed Solomon's Holy Temple on Mount Moriah, which is the Holiest Place on Earth because it is where Abraham, centuries before, had offered to sacrifice his miracle son Isaac for God.
 
* 2 kings 11:14 And when she looked, behold, the king stood by The Pillar, as the manner [was], and the princes and the trumpeters by the king, and all the people of the land rejoiced, and blew with trumpets:
 
Jeremiah the Prophet rescued the Bethel/Lia Fail and The Ark of The Covenant and Zedekiah's daughter Teia Tephi and brought them to Tara in Royal Meath in Ireland, where on the 21st of June in 583 B.C. Teia Tephi married Eochaidh "Ollothair" Mac Duach/Dui, the Daighda, the Heremon - Ard ri or High king of Ireland, in fulfillment of God's prophecy to His Prophet Ezekiel, in the Old Covenant / Old Testament.
 
21:24 Therefore thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Because ye have made your inequity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, [I say], that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.

21:25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when inequity [shall have] an end,

21:26 Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Remove the diadem (sovereignty), and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low (Line of Zarah at Tara - Eochaidh), and abase [him that is] high (Line of Pharez in Jerusalem - Zedekiah).

21:27 I will overturn (1), overturn (2), overturn (3), it: and it shall be no [more], [overturned] UNTIL he come whose Right it is; and (4) I will give it [him - Shiloh/Christ (Genesis 49 v 10)].

That final destiny as Christ's Throne is here clearly stated in verse 27 as being the fourth and final overturn of the Throne, very soon.

Jeremiah, who was buried in Cairn T at Loughcrew, not far from Kells, was the Prophet commissioned by God to fulfill His prophecy to Ezekiel, just quoted.
 
* Jeremiah 1:10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

The Lia Fail stayed in Ireland on The Forrad (The Inauguration Mound) at the Hill of Tara for over a thousand years, after Teia Tephi brought it with her from Jerusalem in 583 B.C. All of the kings of Ireland descended from her and Eochaidh were crowned on the Stone, right up to Muircheartach (Murdoch) son of Earc, who was Columba's uncle.

In around 500 A.D. Fergus Mor Mac Earc, Muircheartach's brother and therefore also an uncle of Columba, invaded and settled Western Scotland which was previously occupied by the Picts. Fergus wanted to be crowned, king of the (Scots) Irish who had migrated to Scotland, on The Lia Fail Stone and Muircheartach loaned the Stone to him, for that occasion.

The Lia Fail Stone was never returned to Ireland, but, as God prophesied, stayed in Scotland, where all of the Scottish kings were crowned on it, up to 1296 A.D.

Edward the First of England (Edward "Longshanks" in the film Braveheart) then invaded Scotland and removed the Stone to England. Edward took The Lia Fail to London, where it was placed in Westminster Abbey and all of the kings of England, right up to and including George the 6th., were crowned on the Stone.

To demonstrate the importance of the Stone of Destiny to you I will explain that during the bombing of London in the Second World War the Stone of Destiny was removed to Winchester Cathedral for safety. No similar action was taken with the Crown Jewels.
 


The Coronation Chair in Westminster Abbey, London.
 
In the early hours of Christmas morning in 1950, the Lia Fail (Stone of Destiny) was removed from Westminster Abbey by four Scottish Nationalists: Kay Matheson; Ian Hamilton; Gavin Vernon and Alan Stuart, who took it back to Scotland. They then sent a fake stone, which was cut from sand-stone that had been quarried near Scone in Perthshire, back to England and Elizabeth 2 was crowned upon it. Because Elizabeth 2 has never been crowned upon the real Lia Fail, she has not been officially crowned queen of Britain in the eyes of God.

The fake stone, known as the Stone of Scone, was sent back to Scotland in 1996, where it is now on public display in Edinburgh Castle. If you compare the two pictures, it should be blatantly obvious to you that they are two different stones.

The following pictures are from official photographs. The real Lia Fail / Stone of Destiny is supplied by Westminster Abbey; taken before the theft of The Stone on 25/12/1950 and The Stone of Scone is supplied by Edinburgh Castle.

So what happened to The real Lia Fail - Stone of Destiny after the Scottish Nationalists removed it from Westminster Abbey, and where is The Stone's next place of Destiny?

As the Lia Fail is God's Throne of Israel and He knows all things before they happen, we can look at The Book He gave us (The Bible) to see what will happen to the Stone of Destiny. The following is a short excerpt from God's prophecy out of The Old Testament Book of His Prophet Ezekiel, previously quoted:-
 
21:26 Thus saith the Lord "I AM"; Remove the diadem (sovereignty), and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low (Line of Zarah), and abase [him that is] high (Line of Pharez).

21:27 I will overturn (1), overturn (2), overturn (3), it: and it shall be no [more], [overturned] UNTIL he come whose Right it is; and (4) I will give it [him - Shiloh / Christ (Gen. 49 v 10)].
 
Verse 26 tells us that The Throne (Lia Fail) will be (and it was) taken from the Pharez branch (him that was high) of the tribe of Judah in Jerusalem and given to the Zarah branch (him that was low) of the tribe of Judah, who had settled in Ireland.

This happened, as already stated, when king Zedekiah of Jerusalem from the Pharez branch of the tribe of Judah, was overthrown by king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and princess Teia Tephi, Zedekiah's daughter brought the Lia Fail Stone to Ireland and married Eochaidh Mac Erc/Duach, the high king of Ireland who was from the Zarah (Red Hand - Genesis 38:28-30) branch of Judah, in the sixth century B.C.

The above was the first of the four overturns mentioned in verse 27. The second overturn was when the Lia Fail was taken from Ireland to Scotland in c. 500 A.D., overturning the Throne from the kings of Ireland, and the third overturn was when the Throne was removed from the Scots and taken to England in 1296.

God then tells us in the second half of verse 27, that the Throne shall be overturned no more, UNTIL He (Shiloh - Christ) comes whose Right it is; and that He (God) will give it to him (Christ). If we go to Genesis 49:9-10; we are told that the sceptre (sovereignty) will not depart from the line of Judah UNTIL Shiloh (Christ) comes (and then it WILL depart from Judah). In Genesis 49:22-24 we are told that from Joseph's seed (not Judah's) will The Shepherd (Christ) come.

The fourth and final overturn began in 1950 when the four Scottish Nationalists removed the real Lia Fail from Westminster Abbey and replaced it with the fake (Stone of Scone). Elizabeth 2 who is descended from the royal line of David from the tribe of Judah, was then crowned on that fake stone in 1953, so in actual fact was never officially crowned and she is not the sovereign of Britain in the eyes of God.

This fulfills the first half of the prophecy given in Genesis chapter 49 (the sceptre departs from Judah), and all that remains is for Christ, from Joseph's seed (Ephraim's line), to claim His Rightful place on God's Throne - Bethel - The Lia Fail - Stone of Destiny.



Did the police recover the Stone of Destiny? Definitely not!

In 1986, The Scotsman carried photographs 'supplied by Miss Marjorie S. Brock, who was treasurer of the 1320 Club, no longer in existence'. One photograph was captioned 'The Stone of Destiny, which has been on display in St Columba's Parish Church, Dundee, since June 1972.' The second photograph was of a plaque which read:-

LIA FAIL
The Stone of Destiny has been set here. An appropriate place for a symbol so venerable and significant in Scottish history. It has been given into the keeping of the Minister and Kirk Session of St (Columcille) Columba's Parish Church, Dundee, by the 1320 Club in association with Baillie (Municipal Officer and Magistrate) Robert Gray, of Glasgow, who helped to place the (fake) Stone in Arbroath Abbey on 12 th April, 1951.

  
A fake stone?This stone is also obviously not the genuine Stone of Destiny but is another fake, presumably made by Baillie Bertie Gray. Again we have the connection with Columba of Kells and Iona being guardian of the Stone, because the Lia Fail was allegedly kept in Columba's church in Dundee, until the authorities found-out, by reading the above newspaper article and sealed-up the building with the alleged real Lia Fail still inside it. It was then rescued by the Knights Templar who have it at present, secreted away in Adamnan's Church at Dull in Perthshire. Yet again we have the link with Columba because Adamnan's Church is built into the grave-mound of Adamnan who wrote the "Life of Columba" around 685 A.D., shortly after Columba's death.

So why is Ireland called Inis Fail - the Island of Destiny? What IS Ireland's Destiny?

The real Lia Fail must now continue on its return journey; the next leg of which is to The Hill of Tara to be replaced on The Inauguration Mound, in place of the obscene phallic Baal pillar that presently stands there; in preparation for the fulfilment of the second half of God's Prophecy about Christ's Second-Coming, in Ezekiel 21:27 and Genesis 49:24.

This has to happen immediately, if not sooner for two very good reasons. The first reason is to release Ireland from the Curse it has been under for the last 150 years; as a punishment for naming a stone phallus God's Throne. The second reason; according to the Prophecies that Christ Himself left in the Gospel of Matthew, and in the Third Book of the Apocalypse Revelation to John; is that the climax of His Second Coming is very close indeed. The following is the parable Christ gave His disciples in reply to them asking when His Second Coming will be:-
 
Matthew
24:32 Now learn a parable of the Fig tree (Jews); When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves (1948), ye know that Summer [is] nigh:

24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it (the end) is near, [even] at the doors.

24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away.
 
The Fig tree has always been the emblem of the Jews (the religion, not the tribe of Judah). The 'when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves' occurred in 1948, when David Ben-Gurion announced, on 14/May /48, in Tel-Aviv, to the world, that the Jews had established a JEWISH STATE in the Land of Israel on 22/4/48. The 'Summer' referred to is Christ's forthcoming thousand year reign and 'this generation' is probably around fifty to sixty years from 1948, when 'all these things (will) be fulfilled.'



John's Apocalypse Revelation Book Three
30:12 And behold, the Christ cometh quickly, for a millennium will pass and near another and there will be made a sign in the heavens. And you will know this "Star" that called the wise and all-knowing to Bethlehem. Seek there the "Star" (Matt. 24:30-31) at the appointed time, and all spirit will rejoice in the reward, even unto those who come out of the body (2 Cor. 5:8, 10), that every man according to his WORK shall be".
 
 
Nostradamus, the famous French Prophet who studied Columba's prophecies, also sheds some light on the subject and states that the Lia Fail will return to Tara and what will happen when it does; also that the great King of Warning will tell the world in the seven month of 1999 about the return of Christ; in the following two quatrains:-

(Lia Fail) put in place (on the Inauguration Mound at Tara); (the empire) changed on the gnarled stone (the Lia Fail - Stone of Destiny)-(as Christ is inaugurated King of Ireland)
 
10:72
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois
Du ciel viendra un grand Roi d'effrayeur
Rescuciter le grand Roi d'Angoulmois.
Avant apres Mars regner par bon heur.

The year 1999 seven (sept) month (July or Sept-ember)

From heaven will come a great King of Warning (Prophet - Elijah - see the Old Testament Book of Malachi chapter 4)(Q. 4,29; Q. 6,100)

 He will bring back to life the Great King of Israel (Christ from the Tribe of Joseph/Ephraim - Genesis 49:10; 22-24 k.J.A.V. of Bible).

Before: after war, reigns in good (God's) time (the Seventh - Sabbath Millennium - 3rd millennium A.D)

Columba himself says in his prophecy called "The Force":-

This (Roman) wind, which will blow over us for a time,
And which will force us to deviate from our true course;
It is through the influence of this same wind from the East,
All the Gaels shall be ruined!

I think it long until the King son of Saxon (Isaac's-sons),
Will come over the sea*, and not for love of him;
But in consequence of his coming, CHRIST,
The strangers shall be expelled by my kindred from Eire.

* The King son of Saxon, who is here foretold should visit Ireland, is Christ in person, as Columba states clearly in line three. Senanus, treating about the same individual says:-

The King son of Saxon will come,
To them across the sea;
He will part with the sovereignty,
Of the Galls of the country whence he came.

 
For a more particular account of this King, see the Prophecy of Senanus.  Columba is talking plainly about Christ coming in a body from Joseph/Ephraim - of I-Saac's-sons - Saxons (Genesis 49:10; 22-24) to rule as King of Ireland, as also is Senanus.
 
Senanus:-

Impart to me (Columba), O Senanus (Cian aneas Mor),
Information concerning the latter ages of the world;
What shall be the condition of the race of people,
Who will not observe rectitude in their judgments.
The King (Christ) son of Saxon will come
To join them across the sea;
He will part with the sovereignty
Of the Gall in the country whence he will come.
The Galls and the Gaels of Ireland,
Will unite in one confederation;
Against the forces of the Saxons,
Their confederacy cannot be dissolved.
The King (Christ) son of Saxon will come
At the head of his forces;
In consequence of the protection he will extend to them,
Ireland shall be freed from her fears.
One monarch (Christ) will rule in Ireland,
Over the Galls and the pure Gaels;
From the reign of that Man,
The people shall suffer no destitution.
 
Columba's "Eire This Night":-
This new Eire shall be Eire the prosperous,
Great shall be her renown and her power;
There shall not be on the surface of the wide earth,
A country found to equal this fine country!
 
So now you know why Ireland is called Inis Fail (the Island of Destiny). It is because the Stone of Destiny is going to return to the Island of Destiny for its final destiny to be fulfilled, when Christ is inaugurated King of Ireland, on the Stone of Destiny on the Inauguration Mound at Rath na Ri (the Fort of the King) at Tara in Royal Meath.

To help God to fulfill His prophecies about Ireland with the least amount of difficulty, I ask all of the people of Scotland and Ireland to help us to help you. The sooner the obscene phallic stone is removed from Tara and replaced by the real Lia Fail, the sooner the Curse of Tara will be lifted from the Irish people, and the sooner Ireland can live in peace; unity and prosperity with Scotland under Christ's Sovereignty.
 
One of Columba's Prayers

My dearest Lord,
Be thou a bright flame before me,
Be thou a guiding star above me,
Be thou a smooth path beneath me,
Be thou a kindly shepherd behind me,
Today and for ever more.
 


Jah is the by-line given as the author of the above two articles. He, she, they profess not to be Rastafarians. Jah does appear to have a connection with Gibraltar – more can be said as to Jah’s pedigree but such currently is not appropriate.

Jah
From Wikipedia

Jah (IPA: dʒɑ) is the name commonly used for God in the religious Rastafari movement.

Rastafari consider Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia to have been the religious symbol for Jah incarnate. Referring to him by the title of Jah Rastafari, some consider him to have been the personification of Jah, but this is only one interpretation or metaphor for Rasta belief. Each and every Rasta is encouraged to seek truth for themselves, and no central dogma is imposed.

Another way some Rastafarians use to express the idea of Jah is the phrase "I and I" (such as "I and I survive" used in a song by the Bad Brains, usually written "I&I") to represent each and every person who recognizes themselves to be part of a trinitarian unity "Haile Selassie I / Jah / I".

Jah is often thought to be a shortened form of the name Yahweh or Jehovah. Thus, the term Hallelujah would mean "Praise Jah." In the West Indies, the recent popularity of Christian Reggae has led to the use of the name Jah in Christian circles, especially among younger believers.
In the original text of the Hebrew Bible, "Jah" occurs 26 times alone and 24 times in the term "Hallelujah".

It is transliterated "Jah" in a single instance (Psalm 68:4) in the King James Version of the Bible, and An American Translation has "Yah" at the same place. The Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures preserves for the reader all occurrences, while Rotherham's Emphasised Bible includes 49 of them.

Jah is also an alternative spelling of the name of the Egyptian deity Iah. Some believe there could be a connection between this name and the Semitic name Jah.
