In the Holy Bible, the first time is always a failure. The first Adam failed, but the second Adam succeeded. The first earth became totally corrupt so JEHOVAH drowned it in water. The Old Covenant was a failure, so the Messiah introduced the New Covenant. The Hebrew Congregation failed, so it were replaced by the Christian Congregation. Christianity was corrupted in the Old World, so JEHOVAH moved to the New World!

The Exodus from Egyptian bondage began in 1533 BC and the children of Israel entered the Promised Land in 1493 BC—exactly 40 years later!

The American Revolution began at Lexington and Concord in 1775 and ended with the Battle of New Orleans in 1815—exactly 40 years later!

Like George Washington, King Saul was a magnificent specimen of manhood, as he stood head and shoulders above his fellow Israelites:

There was a man of Benjamin whose name was Kish the son of Abiel, the son of Zeror, the son of Bechorath, the son of Aphiah, a Benjamite, a mighty man of power. And he had a choice and handsome son whose name was Saul. There was not a more handsome person than he among the children of Israel. From his shoulders upward he was taller than any of the people (I Samuel 9:1).

Mighty man Saul began to run the Hebrew race well, but he failed to stay the course, and he ended up trying to kill his successor David. He is a type of all those who begin the Christian race well, but fail to persevere and endure to the end:

But JEHOVAH said unto Samuel, "look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have rejected him, for JEHOVAH seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but JEHOVAH looketh on the heart" (I Samuel 16:7).

King Saul failed to pass a simple test of obedience, so JEHOVAH sent Samuel the Prophet to Bethlehem:

 And JEHOVAH said unto Samuel, "how long wilt you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill your horn with oil, and go, I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons." (I Samuel 16:1).

Samuel was sent to anoint shepherd boy David as the replacement for the stubborn and rebellious King Saul. Samuel ignored primogeniture as David was the 8th son of Jesse the Bethlehemite.

King Saul consulting the Witch of Endor.

With Samuel dead, and JEHOVAH refusing to speak to him, King Saul ended his reign of terror by consulting the Witch of Endor (I Samuel 28:14).

After losing the battle against the Philistines, he committed suicide by falling on his sword, and none of his children succeeded him on the throne.

David of the Tribe of Judah became famous when he killed Goliath, and his descendant named Miriam gave birth to the Messiah in Bethlehem.

David hit Goliath on the forehead
with a STONE!

That was the fulfillment of the prophecy of Patriarch Jacob who predicted that "the sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from his loins, until Shiloh comes" (Genesis 49:10)....David was a shepherd boy and the Messiah is called "Son of David" and "Lamb" (Gk. arnion) several times!

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon saw a STONE cut out of the mountain without hands which struck the giant statue on the feet and toes of iron and clay:

You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth (Daniel 2:34-35, Saint Matthew 16:18).

That prophecy began to come to pass on July 4, 1776, and reached its culmination at the Battle of New Orleans.

Generalissimo George (1731
was a physical giant like King Saul.

George Washington was the one person in history who mirrored the insane career of the first king of Israel.

As the great-grandson of King Charles II, he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth; and when he married Martha Custis he became one of the richest men in the 13 colonies!

Jackson's parents were poor emigrants from Ireland, and he was orphaned at 14.

General Andrew Jackson was the person most like King David. A veritable lion in battle, he defeated every foe that Apollyon sent against him.


General Jackson
carried a bullet close to his heart!

The enemies of the New Jerusalem and General Jackson were legion: British, Spaniards, Red Sticks, Creeks, Shawnees, Cherokees, assassins, banksters, lawyers, corrupt politicians etc., etc....In 1806, the best pistol shot in the New Jerusalem named Charles Dickinson was hired to kill the general in a duel. He missed killing the Hero by inches and the bullet lodged close to his heart!

The New Jerusalem Saul and David met only briefly when Jackson was a Congressman from Tennessee. Even then they had disagreements over legislation.

Fanatical Jacobites Mercer and Murray were close friends of George Washington!!

When the future King George III was only 7-years-old, the "Young Pretender" named "Bonnie" Prince Charlie landed in Scotland with the goal of restoring the Catholic Stuart monarchy. The "Young Pretender" was welcomed by the fiery Flora MacDonald, whose descendants would later found the McDonald's fast food chain.

"Bonnie" Prince Charlie

In September 1745, "Bonnie" Prince Charlie and the wild Highlanders began their march south to overthrow King George II.

King George II was the grandfather of
King George III.

The "New Pretender" was accompanied by his young physician named Hugh Mercer, and a page named John Murray.


The "New Pretender" haranguing the Highlanders
before their march on London.

As his army of wild Highlanders marched south, opposition grew because the people still remembered the warming pan plot! Even though camp follower Flora McDonald urged him on, and kept reminding him "no guts, no glory," he lost his nerve just 125 miles from London and retreated back to Scotland. If the "New Pretender" had real Scottish genes he would not have retreated without a fight!

Dr. Hugh Mercer was a child prodigy who graduated from the University of Aberdeen with a medical degree at age 19. After the Battle of Culloden Moor he escaped to Pennsylvania, and then moved to Williamsburgh, Virginia, in 1760.

"Fighting Physician " Hugh Mercer

"Fighting Doctor" Hugh Mercer was the personal physician to George Washington but he failed to cure the colonel of syphilis and make him heir conditioned once again!

By the start of the Revolution he was a successful physician in Williamsburg with a wife and 4 young children!

However, he longed to fight the British, so Washington appointed him a general in the Continental Army.


The death of "Fighting Physician" Hugh Mercer at
the Battle of Princeton, January 3, 1777.

Mercer was wounded at the Battle of Princeton, and the British demanded that he surrender because they believed that he, and not Washington, was the rebel general. The "Fighting Physician" died later of bayonet wounds.

John Murray accompanied his father William, 3rd Earl of Dunmore, when the army of "Bonnie" Prince Charlie marched south to London.

Both father and son held formal roles in the court. As vice chamberlain, William assisted the manager of Charles's household. Young John was page of honor to the prince, a privilege that exposed him to the peaks of political power, and the attendant rituals of royal authority. The experience must have left indelible impressions. On 18 September, Charles III was proclaimed king of Great Britain at the Mercat Cross in Edinburgh. Here in the presence of the prince, John saw how delicate and unstable power could be.
(David, Dunmore's New World, p. 12).

Father and son were imprisoned in the Tower of London but they were both pardoned in 1750. John joined the British Army in 1756, and when his father died he inherited the title 4th Earl Dunmore.

John Murray, 4th Earl of Dunmore

At 15, John Murray was appointed a page to the "New Pretender" as he marched south to London.

In 1771, John Murray, 4th Earl of Dunmore, was appointed royal governor of Virginia.

Mercer, Dunmore, Washington, and Thomas Jefferson planned the Revolution in the Raleigh Tavern Apollyon Room!


Miniature portrait of Lord Dumore

painted just before his death in 1809.

Because he was appointed by the king, Governor Dunmore made a pretense of suppressing the rebellion, but it was all play acting . . . like professional wrestling!

Dunmore's daughter was secretly married to Prince Augustus Frederick by Pope Pius VI

Incredibly, former Virginia Governor Dunmore's daughter was secretly married to the 6th son of King George III. In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson attributed every foul deed done under the sun to the king. Apparently, that did not prevent the former governor from attempting to become the king's in-law.

If King George could not control the aberrant behavior of his own children, how could he tyrannize and enslave the 13 colonies? The truth is that King George had no say whatsoever in the momentous events happening during the American Revolution because Parliament controlled the purse strings, and the Tories controlled Parliament!

Prince Augustus Frederick

In April 1793, Prince Augustus Frederick and Lady Augusta Murray were married by Pope Pius VI.

Augustus Frederick was the 6th son of King George III.

Under English law that marriage was invalid because the marriage contravened the Royal Marriages Act of 1772.

According to the Council of Trent, only marriages performed by a Catholic priest were valid, therefore, all of the king's 15 offspring were illegitimate!



Lady Augusta Murray

Lady Augusta was pregnant at the time of the marriage, so the couple hurried back to London and were married incognito by a Church of England minister. However, the Church of Roma only recognized the marriage performed by Pope Pius VI:

Those who shall attempt to contract marriage otherwise than in the presence of the parish priest, or of some other priest by permission of the said parish priest, or of the Ordinary, and in the presence of two or three witnesses; the holy Synod renders such wholly incapable of thus contracting and declares such contracts invalid and null, as by the present decree. It invalidates and annuls them. (Council of Trent, Twenty-fourth Session, Chapter I).

The couple had 2 children: Augustus Frederick d'Este, and Augusta Emma d'Este. D'Este was the family name of Mary of Modena. Ominously, the Royal Marriages Act of 1772 was repealed in 2011.

Augustus Frederick d'Este fought against General Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans!!

In 1811, King George III was driven insane and replaced on the throne by the Prince of Wales, later named George IV. He was the eldest brother of Prince Augustus Frederick.

His son—Augustus Frederick d'Este—joined the armada that planned on conquering the Louisiana Territory!

Sir Harry Smith

As a captain, "Mr. British Empire" Harry Smith accompanied the armada of 1814.

He was present at the burning of the White House and subsequent invasion of New Orleans.

Accompanying him was the grandson of former Virginia Governor John Murray.

To their great disappointment there was to be no "beauty and booty" for their fellow soldiers in New Orleans!



Augustus Frederick d'Este.

Those 2 soldiers were in the thick of the fighting on January 8:

We soon reached our frigate, and oh! so crowded as she was—-Sir Edward Pakenham and his Staff, the commanders of the Engineers and the Artillerymen with their Staff and about thirty passengers. The most of us slept on cots in the steerage. Young d'Este, the real Duke of Sussex, proved himself on shore, like all the royal family, a gallant and intrepid soldier, and the best shop with a rifle that I have ever seen. (Smith, Autobiography of Lieutenant-General Sir Harry Smith, p. 226).

Captain Smith survived the battle even though he was close to Pakenham on that fateful day. Augustus Frederick also survived and finally went to meet his Maker in 1848. By that time Queen Victoria was on the throne and her real father was not the sterile Prince Edward, Duke of Kent and Strathearn.

General Andrew Jackson was the
Hero of the Battle of New Orleans.

During the Revolution, Leviathan was just shadow boxing or pretending to fight.

During the invasion they were deadly serious, as their soldiers were the most experienced in the world.

Only the New Jerusalem DAVID stood in the way of that GOLIATH (I Samuel 17:4).


The Battle of New Orleans on January 8, 1815.

of New Orleans, January 8, 1815.

Controlling New Orleans and the Mississippi River was the key to controlling the vast North American continent.

New World map in 1815 with
a Stuart as "Holy Roman" emperor.

The most likely scenario after the battle was the creation of the "Holy Roman" Empire States of America, Inc.

Washington City lay in ruins, and the most likely site for the permanent capital was New York City.

New York was named after warming pan plot
King James II.

Roman" Empire States of America, Inc.

All their plans came to nothing when Leviathan was driven back to the sea after their disastrous defeat at New Orleans.

Saint Paul said that all the events in the Old Covenant prefigured Christian history!!

Saul of Tarsus was a Hebrew of the Hebrews of the Tribe of Benjamin, and he met the Messiah and Son of David on the Damascus Road....After his conversion (because he was a Roman citizen) Saul used the Latin transliteration of his name PAULUS (English & French PAUL).

An expert in the Law of Moses and the Prophets, Saint Paul said that all the events in the Old Covenant were visual aids to guide the Christian Congregation during the last age of the world:

Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come (I Corinthians 10:11).

Saint Paul said that JEHOVAH never looks backward . . . always forward....He would never go back to restoring failed "Jews" to any mythical "promised land" in the Mideast:

For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor (Galatians 2:18).

King Saul was the tallest man in Israel . . . and beloved of the people.....However, his outward appearance fooled everybody because JEHOVAH looks on the inside and not on the outside!
