    Jesus Christ said in Matthew 12:42 and Luke 11:31 that it would be Queen of Sheba and her Lambs, the representatives of Ethiopia, that would judge humanity. In Revelations 5:1- 6 it describes that non-Ethiopians, would overlook the true nation, the Lion of Judah, and its people, the great descendents of David, who would be worthy and became the Lambs. But it details that when those non-Ethiopians finally see this truth, this nation would appear “half dead,” brought on by the sin of man. Are the peoples of the world witnessing this in today's Ethiopia?

    Hello EliasI don't think Im understanding your postI don't see references to the Queen of Sheba in Matthew 12:24 nor in Rev 5: 1-6Luke does not say that they would judge humanity.Let's take a lookLuke 11:30 "For as Jonas was a sign unto the Ninevites, so shall also the Son of man be to this generation." I have personally heard many teach that Jonas was a coward, afraid to bring the Gospel of God's kingdom to the Assyrians in it's capitol Nineveh. Of course he ran to the docks, hopped on a ship and left for some far off location. Jonah [Jonas] lived in a time when the house of Israel was divided from the house of Judah, as two separate nation. Assyria had already declared that they were going to war against the house of Israel, and the nation of the house of Israel had no chance of protecting themselves from the Ninevites. However, the Nineveites were so corrupt that they would not remain as a nation because of their corruption. God had a plan, and Nineveh was part of that plan, and the solution was to have Ninevites repent to God, and save their nation.So here sat Jonah, he knew the corruption that was all around him in Israel. When God told him to preach in Nineveh, Jonah knew that it would mean the end of Israel. Jonah loved Israel, and would gladly give his life to save Israel. This is understandable, and that is the feeling of our people today in our land. Jonah was a prophet, and He knew that God warned Israel many times that this is what was going to happen. In Jonah's mind, he thought, why should I go down and preach and save Israel's enemy? That was the lesson to the book of Jonah.However even in Jonah's rebellion, God used it as the only sign that would be given by Jesus some 800 years later. Jesus was going into the grave three days and three night after He was crucified, just as Jonah was in the belly of the great fish three days and three nights.Jonah 1:17 "Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights."Jesus was brought forth as a resurrected Savior, just as Jonah was brought forth out of the great fish's belly as the savior to the Ninevites after three days and three nights. The Ninevites worshipped Dagon, the fish god, and when they saw Jonah coming out of that great fish that washed ashore, they knew that Jonah was sent by their god. They listened to Jonah, and they repented. This story is also told in II Kings 14:23-26: and it happened when Jeroboam II, the son of Joash was king over the house of Israel. As Jonah walked through the town of Nineveh, he did every thing in his power to make the Ninevites had him, but just coming out of that big fish, made him the very messenger from their god. Jonah converted that entire town, from the lowest man on the street, to the king in his palace. What a revival. Jonah taught them truth, and they heard and excepted that truth into their lives. Jesus told this crowd that this is the only sign that you are going to get.Would the people that witnessed the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the tomb repent, as the Ninevites did? Many of them did.Luke 11:31 "The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here."The "queen of the south" is the queen of Sheba that we read of in I Kings 10-1-13. Jesus stopped just short of saying that He is Messiah. Only Jesus was greater than Solomon in his wisdom, and Sheba witnessed that. She come to know the prophecies of Solomon, of the coming redeemer, and she accepted that wisdom. Now here stands these many people seeing the miracles face to face with our Lord, and they are in disbelief.Luke 11:32 "The men of Nineveh shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here."Jonas was very successful in reaching the people of Nineveh. The power to reach those people came from our Heavenly Father. Here present before these people, the living Word is performing the miracles, preaching, and yet the people can't see the truth standing right before them. When Jonah spoke the Spirit of God moved the people, and here in Luke, the Spirit of God is the Word standing before them.http://www.theseason.org/luke/luke11.htmIm I missing what you are trying to say?

    Luke 11:31 "The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with the men of this generation, and condemn them: for she came from the utmost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here."If you don't know who is the queen of the south is? She is Queen of Sheba (Makeda) an Ethiopian Queen. Here is the link to know more about the Mystery of Ethiopia and Ethiopianness.http://ethkogserv.org/news/Wayne%27s%20%20...hiopianness.pdf

    Hello Elias:Yes, I read your link and I concur that Ethiopia is mentioned many times in the bible and play a part in the scheme of things. One thing that this outline did not mention was the noble Ethiopian who saved the prophet Jeremiah --- his name was Ebed Melech and God promised divine protection because of his deed and faith. Legend has it that he accompanied Jeremiah while planting the throne of David. While I agree that the Solomonic lineage could be there, I do not believe this is the primary lineage of King David as promised there will never be a man to fail to sit on his throne. The reason is that the Davidic throne was described as being in the isles and that it would always rule over the house of Israel. While some of the descriptions and prophecies fit Ethiopia, not all of them do. The house of David resides with Ephraim, and the biblical descriptions fit Great Britain the best for that. As a matter of fact, I went on a non-Christian forum and gave biblical descriptions to the tribe of Ephraim, but I did not tell the people that the descriptions came from the bible. I asked them what nation this described? I had 12 replies unanimously saying that it was England or the UK. Likewise, the queen's genealogy can be traced back to King David.As for the ark of the covenant, that too is up in the air. There are many theories as to where that ended up,, but Ethiopia is one of the more popular theories. I am aware of the talbots that they have in their many places of worship---- so the idea that they have the ark is deeply ingrained. As with most legends, there must be something to it because like I always say, nobody goes to bed and just dreams this stuff up.
