GOD’S PROMISE TO KING DAVID
Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore. (Psalms 18:50)
I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever, and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah (Psalms 89:3)
I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him: With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. The enemy shall not exact upon him: nor the son of wickedness afflict him. And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. (Psalms 89:20-24)
If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. His seed shall endure forever, and his throne as the sun before me. It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah. (Psalms 89:30-37)
The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne. (Psalms 132:11)
(DAVID’S ADVISE TO HIS SON SOLOMON) And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: That the LORD may continue his word which he spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth, with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel. (1st Kings 2:3-4)
God made a promise to King David and his descendants that David’s throne would be established forever.
Shortly before his death we read that David warned his son, Solomon, to keep the Lord’s commandments, but at the end of his life Solomon forsook his fathers warning. We know from the above scriptures that God’s promise to David would still hold firm and that God would not forsake his promise to David concerning the fact that his throne would be established forever.
It is interesting to find that the main purpose or responsibility of the Queen and King in the monarchy is to be the “defender of the faith” to this day. From a well known king, King James, we have our KING JAMES BIBLE.
WHAT HAVE WE LEARNED?
God promised King David that there would always be a descendant of his on the throne.
Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.
