Charles crowned king with biblical overtures


King Charles III was officially crowned king today:

Charles III crowned in ancient rite at Westminster Abbey

May 6, 2023

LONDON (AP) — King Charles III was crowned Saturday at Westminster Abbey, receiving the bejeweled St. Edward’s Crown in a ceremony built on ancient tradition at a time when the monarchy is striving to remain relevant in a fractured modern Britain.

Trumpets sounded inside the medieval abbey and the congregation shouted “God save the king!” at a service attended by more than 2,000 guests, including world leaders, aristocrats and celebrities. Outside, thousands of troops, tens of thousands of spectators and a smattering of protesters converged. …

At a traditional Anglican service slightly tweaked for modern times, Charles, clad in crimson and cream robes, swore on a Bible that he is a “true Protestant.”

But a preface was added to the coronation oath to say the Church of England “will seek to foster an environment where people of all faiths and beliefs may live freely,” and the epistle from the King James Bible was read by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Britain’s first Hindu leader.

A gospel choir performed a newly composed “Alleluia,” and, for the first time, female clergy took part in the ceremony. It was also the first to include representatives of the Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh faiths. …

 In an ancient display of kingly power, Charles was anointed with oil from the Mount of Olives in the Holy Land and presented with an orb, swords and scepters, before Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby placed the solid gold crown bedecked with more than 400 precious stones on the monarch’s head. As trumpets sounded, gun salutes were fired across the U.K.

For 1,000 years and more, British monarchs have been crowned in grandiose ceremonies that confirm their right to rule.

Charles is more of an ecumenical and interfaith person than Protestants have historically been. Yet, his mother also leaned in that direction. Both turned their backs on many scriptures and biblical admonitions.

Charles was anointed with oil by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The anointing of kings with oil goes back over three thousand years.

Here reportedly are some of the words of the anointing ceremony:

6 May 2023

Be your hands anointed with holy oil.

Be your breast anointed with holy oil.

Be your head anointed with holy oil, as kings, priests, and prophets were anointed. And as Solomon was anointed king by Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet, so may you be anointed, blessed, and consecrated King over the peoples, whom the Lord your God has given you to rule and govern …

Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet served King David as well as David’s son Solomon.

While most of the coronation was public, the actual anointing with oil took place behind an anointing screen. According to the official Twitter account of the British Royal Family, “the Anointing Screen protects the sanctity of this act”:

Here is some information related to British coronations and anointing in our free online book Lost Tribes and Prophecies: What will happen to Australia, the British Isles, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and the United States of America?:

In ancient times, God had the prophet Samuel anoint David to be king with oil from Israel (1 Samuel 16:1,13). Notice now a part of the ceremony for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II back in 1953:

O Lord and heavenly Father, the exalter of the humble and the strength of thy chosen, who by anointing with Oil didst of old make and consecrate kings, priests, and prophets, to teach and govern thy people Israel: Bless and sanctify thy chosen servant ELIZABETH, who by our office and ministry is now to be anointed with this Oil, … And as Solomon was anointed king by Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet, so be thou anointed, blessed, and consecrated Queen over the Peoples, whom the Lord thy God hath given thee to rule and govern,[i]

So, we see a tie in with governance, oil, Israel, David’s son Solomon and other biblical aspects. The ancient kings of Israel were anointed (1 Samuel 15:1; 1 Kings 1:34) with oil (1 Samuel 16:13). Scepters were long recognized in the Bible as a symbol for ruling (Genesis 49:10; Ezekiel 19:14) and one was given to the new Queen. Having all of these as part of a coronation ceremony may be more than a coincidence or simple imitation of what some saw in the Bible (some assert the basic ceremony originated with Bishop Dunstan of the 10th century, but it is difficult to know what was done earlier in Scotland or Ireland and if he had access to any related information).

Furthermore, the olive oil mixture to be used to anoint King Charles III was consecrated on the Mount of Olives which is adjacent to Jerusalem, and according to Justin Welby (the Archbishop of Canterbury), “ancient kings through to the present day, monarchs have been anointed with oil from this sacred place.” [ii] While those “ancient kings” referred to may only go back to Crusader times, it is possible that some anointing oil was originally brought to Ireland by Jeremiah and, in time, others decided to replenish it with an olive oil mixture from Jerusalem.

Charles was given the ruling sceptre today. Notice something Moses was inspired to state and prophesy:

10 The scepter shall not depart from Judah, (Genesis 49:10a)

The Bible shows that scepter came to David of Judah when he became king (cf. Numbers 24:17; 2 Samuel 8:2).

Consider that through the prophet Nathan, God made a remarkable promise to King David:

12 “When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.  13 He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. … 15 But My mercy shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you. 16 And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever. (2 Samuel 7:12-13, 15-16)

The throne was to be established forever—and it has been! And this is the throne Jesus will return to.

Solomon was anointed in Jerusalem and the word Jerusalem was reportedly said three times in today’s coronation (

While there have been changes in the ceremonies, the “throne of David” is over three thousand years old, and King Charles III now sits on it. A detailed list of kings from David through Charles III is found in our free online book: Lost Tribes and Prophecies: What will happen to Australia, the British Isles, Canada, Europe, New Zealand and the United States of America?

Scripture plainly teaches that someone has had to have been on that throne since the time of the Zedekiah (a contemporary of Jeremiah), who was the last king of Judah in the Holy Land until Jesus returns to set up the millennial kingdom.

Since someone had to fill the regal role, we can see through historical records and legends that the royalty in the British Isles fits this.

This ‘throne of David’ doctrine is also taught in the New Testament:

31 … Jesus . 32 He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. (Luke 1:31-32)

28 So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” (Matthew 19:28)

Notice that these are still future prophecies. Jesus is not now on the throne of David and He will not be until the coming millennial Kingdom of God.

Therefore, until Jesus returns, someone needs to be on the throne—and the British Royal Family has an occupant to this day–King Charles III.

The Continuing Church of God put together the two sermons on its ContinuingCOG channel related to aspects of this. Here is the first:


The BBC, the UK Guardian, and Buckingham Palace reported various preparations for the planned May 6, 2023 coronation of King Charles III. In March 2023, oil from the Mount of Olives was consecrated for this ceremony. The Stone of Destiny, also called the Stone of Scone, is to leave Scotland to be placed in the coronation chair in Westminster Abby for the coronation. Can any of this possibly have any connections to biblical prophecies about Judah having the sceptre, the throne of David always having an occupant, the prophet Jeremiah, Tea Tephi of Ireland, the lines of Pharez & Zerah, and the end time fate of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland? Is there an unbroken line of monarchs from Judah’s King David through to King Charles III? Does Charles have any connection to the World Economic Forum or the ‘Great Reset’? Could he or others in the Royal Family possibly be involved in fulfilling numerous prophecies in the Book of Hosea? What about the scarlet thread and the “red hand of Ulster’? Did Charles or other members of the Royal Family believe in any version of British-Israelism?

Here is a link to our sermon: King Charles III Coronation and Prophecy.

Here is our latest sermon:

Many claim that they have “refuted” or somehow disproved what is often called “British-Israelism” or “Anglo-Israelism.” Do you believe the word of God over humans? Are secular, Protestant, and other critics right to dismiss the idea that God made promises to the twelve tribes of Israel that have been fulfilled in the past few centuries? Were the last days/end of days prophecies fulfilled over 2000 years ago? If not, were does history point to for their fulfillment? Is there a tie between the belief in British-Israelism and the Kingdom of God? Is there really a difference between the Jews and the so-called “ten lost tribes of Israel”? Do prophecies in the books of Genesis, Deuteronomy, Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Amos, etc. support British-Israelism? Does DNA evidence prove or disprove British-Israelism? Could the British have descended from Joseph’s son Ephraim and those who came to the land which became the USA from Joseph’s son Manasseh? What about many of the Germans who came to the Americas? Was Teah Tephi a 19th century invention of Frederick Glover? Could Jeremiah have been in Ireland? Is there a list of descendants on the throne of David from his time to King Charles III? Was there a gap of kings on the throne of David between the death of King Zedekiah and Jesus–if not, where was that throne? Is Jesus going to assume the throne of David? Are there biblical ties to some of the peoples known as Scythians? Were there three overturnings of the location of the throne from Jerusalem to Ireland to Scotland to England/Great Britain? What about the coronation ceremony, Solomon, Nathan the prophet, and anointing oil? Was the British Empire not only a company of nations, but the biggest land empire in human history? Did the USA become a great nation? Do you believe that God can make all things He promised come to pass? What about tribes of Zebulun, Naphtali, Issachar, Judah, Dan, Reuben, Simeon, etc.? What about the Stone of Scone? Dr. Thiel cites numerous scriptures, historical evidence, and even legends to demonstrate yes, properly British-Israelism is something that people who will truly believe the Bible over opinions of humans will accept.

Anyway, once again, we see someone on the “throne of David.” And as Jesus declared, the word of God cannot be broken (John 10:35c).
