Let us understand that clearly.
"Remove the diadem, and take off the crown."
King Zedekiah, of David's dynasty, had the crown.
This says it is to be removed.
It was removed.
He died in Babylon; his sons and all the nobles of Judah were killed.
"This shall not be the same."
The diadem is not to cease, but a change is to take place,
the throne is to be overturned, another is to wear the crown.
God's promise to David is not to go by default!
"Exhalt him that is low, and abase him that is high."
Who is "high"?
King Zedekiah of Judah. Now he is to be abased.
He is to lose that crown.
Judah has been "high," while
Israel has been "low,"
these many years without a king (Hosea. 8:4).
The Pharez line has been "high" the Zarah line has been "low."
"I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it:
and it shall be no more until he come whose right it is."
What was to be overturned?
The diadem and the throne.
Not once, it is to be debased and overturned three times.
Overturned by abasing Zedekiah, the House of Judah, the Pharez line, and exalting,
now, the House of Israel, and one of the Zarah line!
The first of the three overturns
was accomplished as the first half of Jeremiah's commission.
"And it shall be no more."
Does this mean the throne
the crown is to cease to exist?
Not at all!
could it be overturned three times, that is,
transferred from one to another, if it ceased to exist?
after these three transfers of the crown,
could it be given to him, Christ, whose right it is, at his Second Coming,
if it ceased altogether to exist?
How could the crown now exalt him, who was "low", if that crown was to be no more?
No, the meaning is, it shall be no more overturned until the Second Coming of Christ!
And then it shall be once again
overturned, and given to him!
God will not break his unalterable promise made to David!
Through every generation
David shall have a descendant
wearing that crown!
The second half of Jeremiah's commission must now be performed.
That throne must be transplanted, and again built.
The crown must be overturned, transferred to another!
