Amalek was the oldest son of Eliphaz, son of Esau. Genesis 36:8-12 tells us,
8 So Esau lived in the hill country of Seir. Esau is Edom. 9 These then are the records of the generations of Esau the father of the Edomites in the hill country of Seir. 10 These are the names of Esau’s sons: Eliphaz [“My god is fine gold”] the son of Esau’s wife Adah, Reuel the son of Esau’s wife Basemath… 12 Timna was a concubine of Esau’s son, Eliphaz, and she bore Amalek to Eliphaz…
Amalek, then, was the grandson of Esau-Edom. Edom means “red.” Amalek is the son of “My god is fine gold,” The word el is “god” and eli is “my god.” The word phaz means “fine gold.” Hence, Eliaphaz can be called Mr. Finegold, and it depicts prophetically those who have a problem with “the love of money” (1 Timothy 6:10 KJV).
Amalek formed a tribe distinct from Edom as a whole, but yet Amalek can be said to be an Edomite tribe, especially when viewed as a prophetic type. Because Edom means “red,” I do not think it is coincidental that Rothschild means “red shield.” The family of Meyer Amschel Bauer, who lived in Frankfurt, Germany, took the surname Rothschild in the late 1700’s. The name came from the red shield that marked their house in the days when it was illegal for Jews to have a street address.
Neither do I think it was coincidental that Sir Evelyn de Rothschild died just a few hours before the lunar eclipse (“blood moon”).
The Rothschilds were the patron saints of the Israeli state, and Rothschild Boulevard in Tel Aviv, named after Baron Edmond James de Rothschild. The Balfour Declaration , which led to the establishment of the Israeli state, was a letter dated November 2, 1917 from British Foreign Secretary, Lord Arthur Balfour, to Baron Lionel Rothschild. The Israeli Declaration of Independence was signed at Independence Hall on Rothschild Boulevard.
All of these things point to the fact that the Rothschilds were the main political and financial founders of the Israeli state. In other words, it is not the start of God’s Kingdom but is a counterfeit Israel, the kingdom of Esau-Edom. See also my book, The Struggle for the Birthright, to get the whole picture.
Esau’s kingdom is a fruitless fig tree, which, after being cursed and dried up from the roots in Matthew 21:19, 20, was prophesied to bear more LEAVES in the future (Matthew 24:32). In other words, the nation would come back to life, but would again be destroyed on account of its lack of fruit, as prophesied in Jeremiah 19:10, 11. Recall that the original fig tree was cursed because it bore leaves only—a great show of righteousness, but fruitless, nonetheless. So also this second generation fig tree (as a nation) has borne no fruit that God can eat.
In 2024 the Israeli state will reach its 76th anniversary, this being the final cleansing cycle before the earth comes into Blessed Time.
