THE THRONE OF DAVID
By Henry Morris Ph.D.
“And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever.” (2 Samuel 7:16)
No other ordinary human being, not even the greatest of men, was ever given a promise like this promise to David. It can be understood, however, when one realizes that David is a type of Christ and that, in terms of His human genealogy, Christ did indeed inherit the right to David’s throne. As the angel Gabriel told Mary: “The Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever” (Luke 1:32-33). The coming Messiah is identified as this promised Son of David in the Old Testament prophecies (e.g., Isaiah 9:6-7).
Great article. I especially like the comparison of Adam and Saul and their bad decisions vs David and Jesus even though David sinned he knew the way back and sought it. Quite a contrast in the group.
Indeed, quite a contrast.
Always appreciate it when you stop by, Manny.
I pray that you and your family have a blessed weekend.
Please send your email address as I lost all when the computer died.
It is so good to hear from you. I hope Tom and Pete are well. All is fine here. I’ve also lost your email as cablelynx went to a new format and I didn’t have time to upload all addresses. My email address is email@example.com.
If I don’t get an email from you in a couple of days, I know I’ve got your phone number around here somewhere and I will give you a call.
God’s blessings my friend.
Do you still have the “My boss is a Jewish Carpenter bumper sticker?”
