God\’s Chosen People: The Jacobites @ February 12, 2009

February 12, 2009


My direct ancestor was John Sanders, he was a descendant of Aaron (2 Chronicles 31:19; Jeremiah 31; and 1 Chronicle 23:26-32). In 1669, John Sanders lived in Nansemond County, Virginia. He married Susanna Ravinett, about March 26, 1656. Susanna Ravinett was the daughter of William Ravinett. He was one of John Rolfe’s men. My ancestor John Sanders I, and his wife Susanna Ravinett-Sanders were the first census takers in Nansemond County, but the records were burned. John Sanders I and Susanna, was the parents of William, John II, Richard, Francis. John Sanders I, was a descendant of Ezra was a writer of the Book of Ezra – in the bible (456 B.C. to 440 B.C.)and the son of Seraiah, the son of Azariah, the son of Hilkiah, the son of Shallum, the son of Zadok (House of Zadok in I Chronicle 31:10) , the son of Ahitub, the son of Amariah, the son of Azariah, the son of Meraioth, the son of Zerhiah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Bukki, the son of Bishua, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eleazir, the son of Aaron the chief priest – this Ezra came up from Babylon; and he was a skilled scribe in the law of Moses, which the Lord God of Israel had given, out of the tribe of Levi (Deuteronomy 10:8). Our forefather Aaron, whose heart was judged continually before the Lord (Deut 33:8 and Exodus 28:30). The king of Persia, Artazerxes granted him all of his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him. However, Ezra came to Jerusalem in the fifth month, which was in the seventh year of the king. On the first day of the first month he began his journey from Babylon, and on the first day of the fifth month he came to Jerusalem, by the will of God’s hand. Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel. God turned the heart of Assyria to the Israelites, then God’s people were able to return back from captivity unto Jerusalem at the end of the reign of Babylon and the ascension of Persia.

John Sanders II, married Sarah Davis, and she were the daughter of Thomas Davis (8-20-1687). Sarah was the paternal grand daughter of Captain James Davis, and was the parent of Robert sanders. However, John Sanders II was the brother of Richard Sanders. John Sanders and Sarah Davis were brother and sister-in-law, which was an ancestor of mine was named, Richard Sanders. He (Richard Sanders) was the father of the progenitor of James Sanders – of the North Carolina Militia – an ancestor of me, Thalia Sanders. James Sanders married Ann Holmes. However, we have not determined who Reuben Sanders (#S-1251)was drafted in 1780. He was attached to the regiment of the Militia Commander by Colonel Matthews (Captain Jeremiah Upshur), and Captain Jamison company was first mustered in Williamsburg for service – and responsible for driving off Cornwallis in the Revolutionary War. The two companies worked together under attack of the enemy and Reuben Sanders served three months at the time, and war at the siege of the Little York, at which time Cornwallis surrendered. Reuben Sanders served as a private in the Virginia troops for three months at the siege of Yorktown and surrender of Cornwallis. He was allowed pension on his application executed October 15, 1832, while he resided in Shelby County, Kentucky. However, there is no data available on his family.

John Sanders, I was a member of a Baptist Church Congregation (i.e., Primitive). He was also one of Bacon’s followers, in the Rebellion. It is widely believed that Bacon was William Shakespeare. Nevertheless, the need to freedom of speech in regards to ancient writings cost him judgment would be 2,000 pounds of tobacco. Many executions took place for revolts and rebellions, but my ancestor was pardoned. Nevertheless, many Jacobites lost their life and were forbidden to wear their dress. In 1745, Charlie the Pretender left his ascendancy to the throne of England around 1745. Meanwhile, England was embattled in a Revolutionary War against the colonist militia. The Jacobite took their proud fighting experience from the Aaronites, the Ahronic line of the sons of Aaron. My father was a hero in the Korean War, on the American side (Deuteronomy 32:9, Deuteronomy 32:30-31; Psalm 44:12; Leviticus 26:8; Joshua 23:10 and Isaiah 50:1). He over came great odds to beat of foreign troops that he was out numbered. A Jacobite believes in fighting for justice and mercy etc. (Leviticus 26:7-8)

Next, we examine the judges, in the book of Ezra and he made the people swear to do according to the word from the Lord. The word coming from the Lord was to get rid of their wives (Ezra 10:17). You are also to remove yourself from the congregation (Ezra 10:10, 16). There were many people, from my own tribe, the Levites and the meetings in regards of the transgression with the elders and the judges of the city lastly a few weeks. Be mindful that the congregation of Jacob is Israel, and this congregation wills last a thousand generations. So that means that I am included glory hallelujah (Deut 33:8; and Deut 7:9).

In Judges 1st Chapter of 28, the Israelites were strong but did not drive out the inhabitants. However, the angel of the Lord mentioned to the children of Israel. “I will never break my covenant with you?” The Israelites have not obeyed God. The Israelites were forbidden to make a league; and commanded to throw down the alters of the foreign gods. Therefore, God did not drive the inhabitants out. Instead he let the inhabitants remain as a thorn in the Israelites side. Their gods became a snare to the Israelites.

Nevertheless, God raised up Judges, which did not deliver the people of Israel out of the hand of the enemy (Judges 2:16). The people of Israel at the time did not know what God had done for the people of Israel, their forefathers. Then the Lord raised up judges and was with the judges and delivered the people of Israel from their enemies (Judges 1:18).

Although the God removed inhabitants from the land. The Israelites continued have division for many more centuries and probably many more generations. The appointed land was supposed to have the inhabitants removed (Deuteronomy 28:28-29). The Lord became furious in anger and in great wrath and uprooted the Israelites from their land and thrust them into another land, as it is now. In verse 29, “the secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to your children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law. God had intended permanence for the Israelites, through the secret things. Most importantly God wants you to the enjoy the Sabbath (Leviticus 26:34). You have to remember that Deborah and Barak worked diligently to liberate the captives from among the captive,, in the book of Judges (see 4th and 5th chapter of the book of Judges). Naphtali and Zebulun were riding choice horses, one of the horses was white. I can truly relate to this experience. I was in the Marine Corps. I had a way to go about learning the different air craft carriers, but I knew the Helicopter One team, and I also knew the Air Force One team, for the USAF (2 Chronicles 35:21: Jeremiah 25:9; Leviticus 26:34; Daniel 9:2; Leviticus 25:4).

Jesus reveals who he is: (1) he says that he is the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6; Matthew 22:14). Jesus says that no once can come to Me unless t
he Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up in the last days. (John 6: 44). Wouldn’t it be amazing to be raised up by Messiah in the Last Days? Your life is safe if you honor the Father and the Son (John 5: 16-23). Life and Judgment are through the Son – of God and of Man (John 5:24-30).

Jesus used God’s glorifies God with his works, and the Son of God is glorified (John 11: 4). After healing a man that was blinded, Jesus asked the man did he believe in the Son of God, and in some text it reads the Son of Man. The man answered yes. (John 9:28-36). More importantly, Jesus especially loved to Glorify God on the Sabbath. He said that he was the Lord of the Sabbath (Matthew 12:5, 8; Luke 6:5 and Mark 2:28). As a matter of fact, Jesus had stolen the keys to hell, illegally entered hell and raised the dead probably on Sabbath day. He did not lie in his tomb for more than three days, the temple was ready as promised and he fulfilled scripture (Mark 16: 1-6; Matthew 16:18; Matthew 28: 1-6; Matthew 26:61).

Upon meeting Simon, he determines that Jesus is the Christ, or the Messiah. John also called Jesus the Lamb of God. Jesus was as often called Rabbi. However, his best qualities of his character were determined by fulfilling the scriptures (Matthew 11-14). In Chapter 9:20, Jesus says to Simon Peter, “but who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said, “The Christ of God.” Even the demons knew who Jesus was (Mark 5: 7-9 and Matthew 16:16). Jesus said that demons could be expelled by fasting and praying. Jesus gave the disciples the power to heal the sick and cast out demons (Mark 3:15). Even the religious leaders wanted to know if Jesus had esteemed himself as the Christ (Matthew 22:41-46).

Jesus also wanted me to confess him as the Son of Man. He said that if you confessed then you would go before the angel of God. He says that if you deny him then you will also be denied. (Luke 12:8). How could the disciples deny him, he was transfigured on the Mountain with Elijah and Moses. (Luke 9:32).

The twelve apostles were named Simon Peter, Andrew, James (the son of Zebedee), John (the brother of James – he called the brothers’ of thunder Boanerges, Philip, Bartholomew; Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus , and Simon the Zealot (a Canaanite), Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who was the traitor of Jesus Christ (Luke 6:15). Simon Peter and Andrew were Levites. I am from the sons of Aaron, so that also makes me from the tribe of Levi. Jesus was thirty years old when he began his ministry. I think he was crucified (murdered) at the age of 33 or 36 years old. I am not sure, but I do know that this is when A.D. time began. Jesus was the son of Joseph, the son of Heli, the son of Melchi, the son of Janna, the son of Joseph. Mattathiah was the father of Joseph. Amos was the father of Mattathiah. Nahum was the father of Nahum who was the son of Esli. Naggai was the son of math. Math was the son of Mattathia. Mattathia, was the son of Semei, which was the son of Joseph, the son of Judah etc. Ad so all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the captivity in Babylon are fourteen generations, and from the captivity in Babylon until the Christ are fourteen generations (Matthew 1: 17).

The book of Jeremiah speaks of a new covenant, “with the house of Judah and Israel. The Lord says that he will put his law in their minds and write on their hearts and be their God and they will be his people. If the ordinances depart from Me, says the Lord of Host that is His name. Then the seed of Israel shall also cease. From being a nation before Me forever.

My ancestors believed that everyone should revere their mother and their father. My ancestors are people of Israel’s, Levi tribe. The Israelites moral and ceremonial laws stated that “everyone one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God” (Leviticus 19:3). What happens when a child doesn’t revere his or her parents, or you are not together with the parent? Well in the old law, the book of Ezra, you had to put away the pagan wife (Ezra 10:1-14). The Lord had put judges over the people (1 Chronicles 17:10).

In closing, we will say a prayer followed by memory scripture verses that I hope that you will enjoy throughout your families generations. Father God we come humbly to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we know we can do nothing without you oh Lord! We ask that you would open our eyes so that we can hear, and open our hearts so that we can love. Love is the greatest commandment and the most important. We ask that you give your people a special and discerning spirit. I know that only God can reveal who is and was and is the coming Messiah. I pray for a spirit to seek you and follow your ordinances, commandments, precepts, statutes’, laws that lead us into obedience and righteous living. Father God we know that only you can make yourself known to us at the appointed time, just like you appointed the apostles to walk with the Son of Man. Lastly, I thank you for delivering my family and me out of the hand of the enemy. I count it joy and a blessing and I thank you in advance for your future blessings of victory and prosperity. I thank you for waking me up on the right side of the bed this morning. I thank you most importantly for all the readers. I ask that each person that reads this will be blessed, and that their faith too shall be encouraged, to fulfill the scriptures by believing in the one that you sent and raised up from the dead. Amen.

Memory scripture verse: John 11:4 and Genesis 50:20 and Romans 8:28
