Trees, Stumps & Branches: Biblical & Political Significance

Dr. Omar Zaid, M.D.
Excerpt from
Trinity: The Metamorphosis of Myth
& Genesis of Terror

Isaiah 6: 11-13, KJV and English Standard Versions:

  • Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

The two original Hebrew words translated by King Jasmesians as ‘Lord’ are completely different yet the translators rendered them equivalent!  The first Lord is actually YHWH[1] and even it represents one of the removals of God’s name by ancient Hebraists who replaced it with Jehovah. The second ‘Lord’ is actually ‘adonai’ which simply means ‘Master’ or ‘Sovereign’ in direct reference to Messiah.

Prophet Isa therefore confounded the scribes and Pharisees by stating that David’s Messiah or Master [adonai] could not possibly be David’s son (i.e., a consanguineous descendent, and this is according to customary protocols of the day). To put it another way, he asked: ‘How could David call his descendent master (i.e, adonai)?’

The explanation just given for his challenge is straightforward, yet the twist of bias has obscured the error of the mistranslation and the fact the challenge was made prior to Christianity’s existence infers that the translator’s misstep is far more than a biased misperception.  This question, as posed by Isa, presents an oft-ignored conundrum because it clearly infers that another man — one who is not a descendant of David — is the promised World Messiah or “Law Giver like unto Moses” who will occupy the seat of David.  This latter criterion is according to Moses himself as follows:

  • “And the Lord said unto me [Moses], they have well spoken that which they have spoken, I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren [ach = cousins], like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.”

(Deut. 18: 17-18) King James Version

Psalm II goes on to state that the ‘entire world’ is given to this man as his possession; a position Jews and Christians especially vie for presently.  The King James translators and transcribers — under the yoke of Sir Francis Bacon (a Freemasonic Grandmaster and Rosicrucian Adept) — conveniently and further modified (perhaps even codified in cipher) another translation of David’s words as ‘Begotten Thee’ in a supposed references to this same Messiah.[2] However, this particular passage (Psalm 2: 7) is more correctly translated (when the lexicon is consulted) to: ‘this day have I declared thy lineage’.  Immediately afterwards, the text also states, “Thou art My son.”  Nevertheless, take note that the latter phrase is not a paternal acknowledgement but rather a clear reference to Messiah’s authenticity in the office of God’s anointed ruler or vicegerent (in the customary idiom of the time of the psalm’s inscription); i.e., of his being chosen by Allah to rule or govern (as a Prophet), which stands in complete contradistinction to any king democratically chosen by men.

It must also be noted that, according to the Holy Qur’an, Allah would never have used the term ‘son’ in reference to His prophets.  Hence, the decree of Psalm 2: 7 and related verses do not refer to royal blue-genes but rather to the absolutely Autonomous Divine Appointment of a prophet from the prophetic lineage of eth-ha-Adhawm!  One learns this by referring to the original Hebrew Text and customary idiom rather than ciphered translations of interpolations or erroneous apprehension of context projected by modern thought or memes.  We must also note there was no Hebrew Dynasty when King David wrote his Psalms.  As was Saul, Kings David and Solomon were both appointed and anointed kings by a Prophet (Samuel). Samuel reluctantly did so when commanded by Allah to obey the desire the contemporary pop culture because the people demanded a king like unto the gentiles or iysh. Iysh is a Hebrew word from that time used to identify ‘gentiles’ and means ‘irreparably reprobated’ or forgotten by God; what Al’Qur’an refers to as men who have been ‘abandoned by Allah’.  Hence, the popular monarchy such as the British Royals (who also claim the throne of David) and as practiced by many Muslim pretenders of authenticity, became the adopted tradition of Israel by virtue of their desire (doa) to mimic idolaters. This is reliably recorded by Prophet Samuel (I Sam 8: 7).

Moving on therefore, if Messiah cannot be David’s son, the ‘lineage’ or sovereign divine appointment is hence, authentically declared with the clear implication that he is not of David’s Loins just as Isa pointed out.  The Pharisees were silent in response because — according to time honoured Hebrew custom and protocol — it is illogical that Allah would have one of His prophets call a consanguineous descendent ‘Lord’ or ‘Master’!

What then is Isa’s ‘Branch from Jesse’s Root or Stump all about?

Recalling first of all the last statement of Isaiah quoted above: “… And though a tenth remain in it, it will be burned again, like a terebinth or an oak, whose stump remains when it is felled. The holy seed is its stump.” — Jesse was the son of Obed, and grandson of Boaz and Ruth (Ruth 4: 13-22).  Jesse had eight sons and two daughters, but he is known to Bible History primarily because of his youngest son, who became King David.  As such, Jesse was also a key ancestor of “Jesus Christ”:

  • “There shall come forth a shoot from the stump of Jesse, and a branch shall grow out of his roots … In that day the root of Jesse shall stand as an ensign to the peoples; him shall the nations seek, and his dwellings shall be glorious.”

(Isaiah 11:1,10 RSV)

It can be established that the Mother of Isa descended from King David.  Here we may note an erroneous exposition of the passage which specifically states that the “root (or stump) of Jesse shall stand as an ensign” —not the branch. This ‘branch’ is universally accepted by Biblical Scholars to represent Prophet Isa (mistakenly called, Jesus Christ)!  The branch—according to the prophecy—merely calls all nations to attend to the root, and here we must comprehend that the root is not a person as Jesse was long dead. To the contrary, the root is the Prophetic Message itself and not a particular blood line.  Furthermore, and much more importantly, we must recall the context of Isaiah’s message with regard to its reference to Jesse.  The entirety of this context is centred on Israel’s severe judgment for its reversion to pagan idolatry.  This included the sacrifice of their children to idols according protocols practiced to this day for Satanic Ritual Murder.  This is to say that the tree, representing the polity of Israel (and Judah,) was to be cut down by Allah so that only the root (stump) or prophetic lineage carrying the burden of the final prophetic message remained for Israel!

This ‘root’ or prophetic lineage is directly traceable to Adam (eth-ha-Adhawm).  Furthermore, and notwithstanding the pertinent reminder of the context, much of Prophet Isaiah’s Book is devoted to the details of a Divine Decree of cursing on Israel — which curses are also mentioned by Prophets Moses, Jeremiah and Maliki — whereby the Tree of Israel was to be cut down for its continuum of abominations.  Symbolically the ‘Tree’ to be eliminated therefore represents the authentic Bani Israel polity as opposed to present Ashkenazi pretenders; who are in fact “Jews” but not Israelites descended from the ancient and accursed Hebrews.  The latter were meant to establish God’s Law in the Earth according to Revealed Knowledge (the Law of Moses) ― the Decalogue of Ten Commandments that America recently expelled from their Supreme Court; the very same book which the Qur’an says they threw away and replaced with the Talmud and Kabala.

Hence, if the root is the Prophetic Message or ‘word’ of revealed instruction to men from their Creator, it represents an extension of the Tree of Life sustained via inspiration as dispensed to the Prophetic Lineage (vicegerents) descended from Adam. Any branch of this root bears fruit only by virtue of scriptural study, piety and inspiration, thus generating additional trees by virtue of seed and sound doctrine which establish any sound prophetic polity.  Photo-synthesis and osmosis present us with valuable metaphors for the Spiritual Guidance of sound doctrine—excluding of course, the influence of acid rains produced by sectarians.

Hence, though the glory of the former tree (polity) can never be regained, a branch or shoot from the root may still bear fruit and the fruit spoken of by Isaiah is Prophet Isa who brought his Gospel of the Kingdom of God.  Above all else, this—as opposed to salvation by virtue of blood sacrifice—was his primary message and Christians will reluctantly admit this with a little prodding.  It was this message that was the seed or logos that contained the last Rhema (direct) or revealed teaching of God’s Plan for Israel’s divinely decimated tree. This message of the Kingdom was initially given to consanguineous Israelite Hebrews from the twelve tribes.  Isa directed them to return to the actual Law of Moses and wait patiently for the Paracletos, the world’s Saviour and David’s Lord or Master (adonai), who, in another essay, I will clearly establish — as have others — is Mohammad (pbh).  Jesus is indeed the Messiah for those who followed him then and for any of the righteous who live during the few years of his second advent to follow the Mahdi.  This may be disappointing to some, but it is the sound discernment of many scriptures and historical surveys taken in context and to account

The fruit born of this branch bears seeds filled with Revelation Knowledge, which is the Divine Law or Guidance that indicates the “root” of Jesse’s tree of knowledge that bore the branch known popularly as Jesus.  This guidance and law is placed in the ‘ark’; that is to say, in the heart of understanding for those who choose to conform to it.  Zion therefore — with its symbolic Tabernacle and Ark of the Covenant — represents True Faith in an understanding heart: that is, any person who establishes the Kingdom of God on Earth through the making of their own Peace via submission to Allah and His revealed message (“Blessed are the Peace-makers…” Matt 5:9).  The understanding and activation of this submission thereunto, is, in fact, true Zion and there are many traditions from Prophet Mohammad to this effect:

  • “… and in fact this is the sign of true faith, when its delight enters the hearts and mixes with them completely…”
  • “Allah does not take away the knowledge by taking it away from the hearts of the people, but takes it away by the death of the religious learned men [stumps or roots] till when none of them remains, people will take as their leaders ignorant persons who when consulted will give their verdict without knowledge.”

(Bukhari, vol 1, Book 3, # 004 Vol. 1, Book 3, # 10)

The last sentence describes democracy and Humanism rather accurately.  I submit therefore, that the lack of a people’s submission to divine law causes their handover to the passions of ignorance (pugnacious zealotry), the epitome of which is atheism.

But taking this a step further towards a gestalt purview, we must look at another prophetic example.  After the flood of Prophet Noah, Allah made a covenant with Noah regarding the principle of ‘Seed-time and Harvest’.  This pact refers not only to fruits of the earth but also to the ‘human harvest’ of ‘holy seed’. The term holy refers to those of the human race reserved for the pleasure of Allah.  In the Judeo-Christian eschatology, this means Allah’s tithe (portion) of human-beings reserved for the blessings of Paradise.  Often, in the Judeo-Christian sacred literature, this is alluded to as ‘wheat’ as opposed to the ‘chaff’ which is cast into the fires of hell.

Unfortunately, at the time of Prophet Isa’s Gospel, Israel as a kingdom polity or Tree of Everlasting Life was finished except as a sign of Allah’s autonomous power and judgment.  This was in fulfilment of more than one warning and ancient prophecy!  Essentially, after Isa’s departure and Rome’s decimation of the Temple and Jerusalem—as he prophesied—it was every surviving Israelite for himself, just as it had been during the 300-400 years of Judges who had once ruled these rebellious peoples during period in which Troy fell to Agamemnon.  What is more pertinent to today’s political circumstances however, and of grave global concern, is that this subjection to gentile (iysh) governance, scorn, fear and disdain remained so until the 19th Century Zionist Horn blew its refrain of Luciferian blasphemy, which is, in fact—and for the sake of the uninformed—the Free-masonic Creed of prophet Abel’s brother hailing us from ancient Dravidia; “The Land of Nod”(of a wondering vagabond) to which Cain was exiled as written by Prophet Moses in Genesis. [3]

  • “The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degree, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.  If Lucifer were not God, would Adonay whose deeds prove his cruelty, perfidy, and hatred of man, barbarism and repulsion for science, would Adonay and his priests calumniate him?  Yes, LUCIFER IS GOD, and unfortunately Adonay is also god… thus the doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophical religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay; but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of Darkness and Evil”

A.C. De La Rive in ‘La Femme et l’Enfant dans la / Franc-Maconnerie Universelle’, 1889, pg. 588

  • “He (Albert Pike) was also the Sovereign Pontiff of Lucifer…  Pike chose to follow the mystery religions of Ba’al, he turned his back on God.  If we look at his writings and statements attributed to him, we find that he acknowledged Lucifer as the true god and Adonay (the Biblical God) as the god of evil”

William Schnoebelen, former 32nd degree Mason

  • “… With Lucifer the God of Light and Goodness struggling for humanity against Adonay the God of the Darkness and Evil…  The Great Architect of the Universe is not the God worshipped by the Christians.”

Domenico Margiotta, 33rd Degree Freemason and intimate companion of Albert Pike

As for Freemasons reading this who have not previously been informed of the significance of the texts and people just quoted: your ignorance reveals the precarious situation of your soul!  I could provide an endless list of such declarations as well as citations from their literature for any who care to understand this hostile institution and its sundry Knights of Columbus and Malta, etc., which are undoubtedly amongst the prime adversaries of Islam today as well as all people of truth.

This has been the case these past 200 years-plus, ever since preterit Zionists assumed control of Europe’s finances after the Napoleonic wars — which correlates rather well with the Ottoman political and spiritual demise temporally!   I mention this vile fellowship because it is intimately involved with Zionism as one of its most powerful and influential devices, though publicly it presents an entirely different countenance; typical of Talmudic and Ishmaili (Batini) cunning.  Most Freemasons are, in fact, decent but misguided gentlemen who have no idea who their leaders really are or what they aspire to, as is the case with the public in general.

An example within living historical memory is the Lady pictured at right.  A British aristocrat and and spy who ‘handled’ Sir Lawrence of Arabia and made many of “The Crown’s” major decisions based on his field work.   Her name was Gertrude Bell.  She was intimately instrumental in the Crown’s ongoing plan to end the Caliphate as Lord Curzon, British Foreign Minister, later boasted that same generation.  All of her Masters in London were high Degree Freemasons, with direct affiliations with the British Royal Family [Knights and Dames of Malta] who are in fact, not British at all.


[1] i.e. the Tetragrammaton: YHWH pronounced Yahveh.  Original form is Yah.  El was used as ‘Lord, King, or Chief’.  The combination El-Yah or Lord-God is quite sensible, and it is not inconceivable that El-Yah, Al-Yah, or the Aramaic Eli reportedly spoken on the cross, are derived from this use.  The first inscription bearing the name Yahveh is found on the famous Moabite Stone.  YHWH means I AM WHO AM or I BE.

Elah or Alah is another form of Elohim: a combination of El or Strength and Alah or Swear.  See Strong’s 425 and Scofield’s Reference Bible, First Edition, where Allah has been deleted from the revised text.  It is also thought to be a combination of two other words meaning ‘the God’, and is used in reference to God more than 2500 times in the OT.  All invocations in Islam definitely identify Allah with ‘The God of Abraham’, and not some tree or moon god as is commonly taught by many illiterates who’ve never read Al’Qur’an.

See Also: Yahweh, Yashua & You, Gail Melvin, 1998, ISBN 0-9665602-0-5 #98-91512, an excellent treatise on the derivation and deletion of God’s name from the Biblical texts, including complete scholarly references.

[2] Psalm 2:7 (KJV) — “I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.”

Related NT passages:

Acts 13:33 (KJV) — “God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that he hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.”

Heb 1:5 (KJV) — “For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?”

Heb 5:5 (KJV) — “So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.”

[3] See: Morals & Dogma of Freemasonry Initiation, Albert Pike, 1871. On page 361 he cites the Dravidians of the ancient Hindus Valley as the initial ‘PURVEYERS OF THE INEFFIBLE’ Mysteries of Freemasonry.  I am in possession of an original Second Ed. printing.

2 Comments on “Trees, Stumps & Branches: Biblical & Political Significance

  1. Assalamualaikum wr. wb. Dr. Omar Zaid.

    It’s been a long while since our last meeting. Glad I attended “Signs Of The Creator 2,” where I heard you mention something about a certain tree (now I know, roughly, what you were referring to).

    Sent you an SMS back on Sunday the 30th of Jan 2011, but it didn’t get through. Still, I just want to (re-)congratulate you for a good show back there. Glad I came round and listened to you and the others from the Harun Yahaya (or was it Yahya?) Foundation.

    A slight grouse on my end, thankfully, not religious: Scribd does not really play nice with the Opera browser, which I use regularly. Are there any other sites you’ve uploaded your works to, by any chance? That would be great.

    Still working on an escape route at the moment. I pray that, Insya-Allah, financial issues and job satisfaction would be the least of my worries this year. And I hope that we all manage to make the most of things, even though it was mentioned that we only have about 10 years to go before The Endgame (my gamer’s term for Judgement Day) comes up.

    May Allah bless you, Dr. Omar Zaid, and thanks again. Assalamualaikum.
