Through All Generations
Not only was that throne established forever,
it was to exist continuously, forever, through all generations!
"I have made a covenant with my chosen,
I have sworn unto David my servant, thy seed [his dynasty] will I establish forever,
and build up thy throne to all generations." (Psalms 89:3-4).
That throne was to stand "forever as the moon,
and as a faithful witness in heaven" (verses 28-37).
"For thus saith the Lord; David shall never want
a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 33:17.)
So far as is historically known,
the last king of David's dynasty to sit upon that throne was King Zedekiah of Judah,
with the Jews a captive people,
with all his sons, and many nobles of Judah killed.
There is no historical record of any continuance of that throne from that year.
Did David want for a man
to sit upon his throne,
and continue his dynasty, from that day on?
Some say Christ took over the throne.
But he didn't. Instead he was crucified, resurrected, and ascended to heaven.
He shall come, and soon, to sit upon that throne as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
how can Jesus Christ, when he returns again to earth,
take over and sit upon a throne that long ago ceased to exist?
