David Is The Only True Messiah.
David Is The Only True Messiah.
The true Savior, is NOT who you think HE is, and
HIS truly anointed, is NOT who you think He is.
A Man After Who's Own Heart.
(Psalms 89:20-28) 20I have found David my servant; with my (Holy Oil) have I anointed him: 21With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted. 25I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. 26He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my 'God', and the rock of my salvation. 27Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. 28My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him.
(Psalms 35:26-27) 26Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine (David's) hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me. 27Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let 'the Lord'* be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
*The first problem we encounter is the complete removal of "God's" Name, to whom the annointed is to be dedicated. So whenever you see: 'the Lord' in Scripture, it is hiding the CREATOR's Real Name, which is Yahweh, the 'God' of the Israelites. The christians themselves readily admit to the fact that there are many 'Gods' (1 Corinthians 8:5-6), yet neither the Apostles nor their 'Saviour' ever mentions the NAME of the 'God' they worship.
Moreover, they also fail to mention that these 'other Gods' are always 'FALSE Gods', leaving you to think they are real, which they most assuredly are not! This is because they want you to consider their own 'Jesus' as the real 'God', which most assuredly, he is NOT!
Since everyone knows there is but ONE True 'God', who is ETERNAL, and the sole SOVEREIGN over HIS creation, it is crucial that you understand the CREATOR's ordinances, statutes, and procedures for Anointing a person into service. Only a person who underwent the Anointing process, was considered Anointed by 'God' and the Israelites. Today it's akin to "Taking the oath of office".
Therefore, it is of the first and greatest importance to prove who the True Messiah of 'God' (Yahweh) is, because upon this one point being fully established, either Yahweh or 'Baalim'* prevails or falls therewith. Its an old story, and you can see it here: (1 Kings 18:17-39).
As we shall see, you can worship Yahweh, the 'ETERNAL SOVEREIGN', who CREATED the Universe by Himself:
(Isaiah 44:6) (CEB) 'The Lord'*, Israel's king and redeemer, 'the Lord'* of heavenly forces, says: I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there are no 'gods'.
(Isaiah 44:24-25) (AMP) 24For 'The Lord'*, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb says this, I am 'the Lord'*, Maker of all things, Who alone stretches out the heavens, Who spreads out the earth by Myself, 25Frustrating the signs and confounding the omens of boasters (false prophets), Making fools out of fortune-tellers, Counteracting the wise And making their knowledge ridiculous...
*Or you can worship something else, which is called 'baalism' [the worship of false 'gods' or idols].
Also, don't be fooled by words like 'lord' or 'saviour'. They are there to prevent you from calling on the Name of Yahweh. Why would you want to do that? See the truth for yourself:
(Deuteronomy 4:28-31) 28And there ye shall serve 'gods', the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. 29But if from thence thou shalt seek 'the Lord' thy 'God', thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. 30When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to 'the Lord' thy 'God', and shalt be obedient unto his voice; 31(For 'the Lord' thy 'God' is a merciful 'God';) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
(Deuteronomy 30:1-5) 1And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither 'the Lord' thy 'God' hath driven thee, 2And shalt return unto 'the Lord' thy 'God', and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; 3That then 'the Lord' thy 'God' will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither 'the Lord' thy 'God' hath scattered thee. 4If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will 'the Lord' thy 'God' gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: 5And 'the Lord' thy 'God' will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.
(2 Chronicles 7:13-14) 13If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; 14If my people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
A Lawful Anointing.
"Mashiach" is the Hebrew word for "Anointed, Strong's #(H4899)" who is David, the "Mashiach of the 'God' of Jacob," (2 Samuel 23:1) King of Israel. "(Christos" is the Greek word for "Anointed" from the Latin Vulgate (VUL), who is the Savior, it is said, of the Gentiles. We can clearly see, from the language in which originated these two different Messiahs, the first in and from the Hebrew 'Mashiach', and the second from the Greek Christos, from whence they first had their rise; so whichever of the two 'Messiahs' was literally and physically anointed, that, and that one alone, is The Only True Messiah of 'God'.
Because nothing is real that is done in ideas, concepts, thoughts or imaginations, wishing it so, can not possibly make that person a Messiah, or Anointed, for this plain and most simple reason, that it requires the literal act of pouring on the literal oil, as required by the irrevocable Law of 'God'*. And not just any old oil will do, but which oil was to be made according to the directions given for making the (Holy Oil) in the same irrevocable Laws of 'God' (Exodus 30:22-33). Just as it's not possible to lay claim to your throne, before you've been Lawfully coronated, unless and until you've been Lawfully "Anointed as per the ordinances, statutes, and procedures of the the 'God' of "Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob", then CLEARLY you're NOT officially Anointed.
*Christians' own testimony declares: "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away, than one jot or tittle of the Law to fail." (Luke 16:17).
In all courts of Law and Justice, ancient and modern, no Idea, Thought, or Feeling, can possibly be regarded in the eye of the Law, as punishable, or rewardable, until wrought out or performed in (F)act; for instance, a man may have very angry Ideas, Thoughts, Feelings, or Imaginations on killing someone, but until he carried out the act in deed, or in action, or in (F)act, he cannot possibly be found guilty, nor condemned, because it never actually happened. And just so, no man can in justice be rewarded for any good Idea, Thought, Feeling, or Imagination, until he actually performs it (i.e. 'saves, or helps, or enables') someone in some way, because it never actually happened.
So by all the jurisprudence of the law, we can plainly see that David was a True Messiah, or Anointed of 'God', the one that was literally in (F)act anointed by the pouring upon his head of the literal Sacred oil, by the Prophet Samuel, as recorded in (1 Samuel 16:1-13). And Samuel declared David to be the "Anointed" (or Messiah) of the 'God' of Jacob (2 Samuel 23:1).
I will here quote these two most memorable declarations out of "God's" word, as full and all-sufficient proof of David being the true Anointed, or Messiah, as follows:
(1 Samuel 16:1) And 'the Lord' said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
(1 Samuel 16:12-13) 12And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And 'the Lord' said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. 13Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of 'the Lord' came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.
Now this was a very different thing indeed from any mere abstract Idea, Thought, Feeling, or Imagination; a very different thing indeed that the christians claim of 'jesus' seeing "the Spirit of 'God' descending as a Dove and lighting upon him" (Matthew 3:16):
(Matthew 3:16) And 'Jesus', when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of 'God' descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
This is all that Christians can bring forward in proof of 'jesus' being Anointed? You see, its all based upon one big deception, or misdirection as a magician would say. First of all being 'baptized' is not being 'Anointed'. Secondly, water is not oil, let-alone 'Sacred Oil'. In fact its widely known that water and oil don't mix. Yet thats exactly what they are doing here, and expecting you won't notice the fact that is completely invalid based on the Law of 'God'. Wow! And what about that dove? Can one see the Spirit of 'God'? Is a spirit visible? If not, how can anyone assert that it was in the form or likeness of a Dove?
Admit, however, that it was so, in the only possible way that an invisible spirit can be like a visible Dove, it still does not constitute the lawful act of Anointing, or prove that 'jesus' is a lawful Messiah, in the only lawful way and manner possible; as is declared by the Law of 'God'. In fact, both as to the making of that particular oil composition, and the mode of consecration (Anointing), prescribed by Divine authority.
So far, we have seen the CREATOR declare, and the prophet Samuel declare, that David is "God's" Anointed; now let David also tell us:
(2 Samuel 23:1-2) 1Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high, the Anointed of the 'God' of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, 2The Spirit of 'the Lord' spake by me, and his word was in my tongue.
David Will Be Israel's King At The Resurrection.
Moving on from demonstrating that David was Lawfully Anointed, I shall now show, that he will be Israel's King at the Resurrection from the dead, as is declared in (Ezekiel 37), and from many other places; and if so, who has any right to lay claim to David's Identity, as the Messiah, when we are assured by "God's" word and Holy Spirit, that David was a 'man after "God's" own heart', (1 Samuel 13:14) and that his heart was perfect with 'the Lord' his 'God'. See (1 Kings 11:4). Most assuredly if this be true concerning David, he never transferred his Identity to any other person after him, as the Messiah of 'God', neither did he ever forfeit it.
In (Ezekiel 37), alluded to above, the prophet, after describing the literal Resurrection of the whole house of Israel in the first five verses, goes on in the 6th and says, "And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am 'the Lord'". Clearly stated, from the 21st verse on we read:
(Ezekiel 37:21-28) 21And say unto them, Thus saith 'the Lord' 'God'; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their 'God'. 24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore. 27My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their 'God', and they shall be my people. 28And the heathen shall know that I 'the Lord' do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Thus we can be assured that David shall be king over Israel, (not the Nazarene, for notice: there is to be but ONE "King" over them all), and they shall all have ONE shepherd; they shall also walk in MY judgments, and observe MY statutes and do them", and David shall be their prince FOREVER. That's right. FOREVER! The position of king of kings, and messiah, is already filled and sealed by "God's" Law. Why anyone would try to ursurp the authority of 'God' and insert himself into a position of authority as co-equal with 'God' seems suicidal, as indeed it was:
(Deuteronomy 13:1-10) (KJV) 1If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder [miracle], 2And the sign or the wonder [miracle] come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other 'gods', which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the ETERNAL your CREATOR proveth [tests] you, to know whether ye love the ETERNAL your CREATOR with all your heart and with all your soul. 4Ye shall walk after the ETERNAL your CREATOR, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. 5And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be [PUT TO DEATH]; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the ETERNAL your CREATOR, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the ETERNAL thy CREATOR commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.
6If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, which is as thine own soul, entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and serve other 'gods', which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy fathers; 7Namely, of the 'gods' of the people which are round about you, nigh unto thee, or far off from thee, from the one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth; 8Thou shalt not consent unto him, nor hearken unto him; neither shall thine eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt thou conceal him: 9But thou shalt surely kill him; thine hand shall be first upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all the people. 10And thou shalt stone him with stones, that he die; because he hath sought to thrust thee away from the ETERNAL thy CREATOR, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.
Notice too, that it goes beyond just false prophets who will be condemned; it also talks about anybody who entices others into worshiping false 'gods'. It is vitally important to your spiritual well-being, that you understand how the ETERNAL CREATOR and SOVEREIGN of the universe views false idols, false 'gods', false saviors, AND those who promote them, either intentionally or unintentionally.
Continuing on with David's future position of authority over Israel by divine decree, in the 34th chapter of Ezekiel we read:
(Ezekiel 34:22-24) 22Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. 23And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. 24And I 'the Lord' will be their 'God', and my servant David a prince among them; I 'the Lord' have spoken it.
Is it possible for language to be more clear and definite in declaring that David is to be Israel's King and Messiah in that day? This, however, is but a very small part of the Scriptural testimony in favor of David coming in power as the Holy King, and Messiah [anointed] of 'God', at the Resurrection from the dead.
In the 30th Chapter of Jeremiah, it expressly and most positively declares the time when 'God', will raise up David (not another), unto them:
(Jeremiah 30:7-9) 7Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. 8For it shall come to pass in that day, saith 'the Lord' of hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him: 9But they shall serve 'the Lord' their 'God', and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
(Hosea 3:4-5) also confirms David, and not another, as being Israel's Future King:
(Hosea 3:4-5) 4For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim: 5Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek 'the Lord' their 'God', and David their king; and shall fear 'the Lord' and his goodness in the latter days.
(Zechariah 12:8) forever settles this most important question, and declares most clearly and plainly, that it is David and not another, who has the SOVEREIGN's authority and future backing:
(Zechariah 12:7-9) 7'The Lord' also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. 8in that day shall 'the Lord' defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as 'God', as the angel of 'the Lord' before them. 9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
What then must David, their King and Messiah, be? (Psalm 16:9-10) taken in connection with (Psalm 18) and (Psalm 89:19-38), throws all the necessary light required upon this most important question. Starting with Psalm 16:9-10:
(Psalm 16:9-10) 9Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.*
* Psalm 89:19-20 says who this 'Holy One' is (whether David or 'Jesus'), who will not see Corruption in death:
(Psalm 89:19-20) 19Then thou spakest in vision to thy holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. 20I have found David my servant; with my (Holy Oil) have I anointed him:
(Psalm 18) shows us not only the Who, but also the manner of the resurrection of David. This Psalm is also found in (2 Samuel 22), sung by David as his Last song. This is just before he spoke his "last words" in (2 Samuel 23:1-8), in which he declares himself "the Anointed, i.e. Messiah of the 'God' of Jacob". David begins this Psalm by addressing 'God' thus:
(Psalm 18:1-5) 1I will love thee, 'O Lord', my strength. 2'the Lord' is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my 'God', my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 3I will call upon 'the Lord', who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. 4The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. 5The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me.
Here we see David, after addressing 'God' and calling upon him in the first three verses, then in the two last described his state in the Grave, compassed by the sorrows and snares of death, and then immediately in the next verse shows that in this, his distress, he cried unto 'God', and 'God' heard his voice out of his temple. He then shows immediately the manner in which he will come at his resurrection, and this he speaks of himself, in the first person, and not of anyone else in the second person; notice:
(Psalm 18:6-9) 6In my distress I called upon 'the Lord', and cried unto my 'God': he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 7Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 9He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness was under his feet.
Now any impartial and unbiased person can clearly see, that David is here speaking of 'God', The SOVEREIGN Of Hosts; and not of 'Jesus'. So with what follows:
(Psalm 18:10-15) 10And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13'The Lord' also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. 14Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, 'O Lord', at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
Now it will be admitted by all hands, that David has been speaking thus far of 'God' in the second person, but now in the next verse he speaks of himself in the first person, and not of 'Jesus' or of another in the second person:
(2 Samuel 22:16-24) 16He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters; 17He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them that hated me: for they were too strong for me. 18They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but 'the Lord' was my stay. 19He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me. 20The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: according to the cleanness of my hands hath he recompensed me. 21For I have kept the ways of 'the Lord', and have not wickedly departed from my 'God'. 22For all his judgments were before me: and as for his statutes, I did not depart from them. 23I was also upright before him, and have kept myself from mine iniquity. 24Therefore 'the Lord' hath recompensed me according to my righteousness; according to my cleanness in his eye sight.
Now I wish you particularly to understand that David in the last nine verses is speaking of himself in the first person and not of 'Jesus', nor of anyone else in the second person. So he was in the first six verses of this same psalm; but at the seventh he changes the pronoun from the first to the second person, that is, from himself to 'God', thus:
(Psalm 18:7) Then the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because he was wroth.
When there is such a plain and manifest distinction of the pronouns, preserving to David such vast promises of power and blessing at the Resurrection, how very unjust and unfair it is in Christians to try to rob David of his claims, by changing the first person to the second, then applying them to 'Jesus'; even though they are told to their face by 'God', that David will be raised up to be Israel's King:
(Jeremiah 30:9) But they shall serve 'the Lord' their 'God', and David their king, whom I will raise up unto them.
I know well that there are thousands and tens of thousands so prejudiced and predisposed by mis-education in favor of 'Jesus' being the Messiah, that they will not hear, nor believe one word concerning David's being the only true Anointed, or Messiah, of the living 'God' of Jacob.
But when 'God' stirs and awakes to Judgment, to Judge David's cause, then they will know who the true 'Messiah' is, according to "God's" righteousness. Let such read the last five verses of the 35th Psalm:
(Psalm 35:24-28) 24Judge me, 'O Lord' my 'God', according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me. 25Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up. 26Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me. 27Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let 'the Lord' be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. 28And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.
The above is a full declaration of the shame and confusion that will come upon the enemies to David's Messiahship, and of the joy and gladness of the friends of David, and his righteous cause.
We will now turn our attention to (Psalms 89:19-37) where we will have full proof, not only of David's Messiahship, but also, who the "Holy One", mentioned in (Psalm 16:10) is:
(Psalms 89:19-37) 19Then thou spakest in vision to thy 'Holy One', and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people. 20I have found David my servant; with my '(Holy Oil)' have I anointed him*: 21With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in MY NAME shall his horn be exalted. 25I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers. 26He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my 'God', and the rock of my salvation. 27Also I will make him my firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth. 28My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and my covenant shall stand fast with him. 29His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven. 30If his children forsake my law, and walk not in my judgments; 31If they break my statutes, and keep not my commandments; 32Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes. 33Nevertheless my lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 34My covenant will I not break**, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. 35Once have I sworn by 'my holiness' that I will not lie unto David. 36His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me. 37It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven***. Selah.
Now in this Psalm is a full and unconditional guarantee of the Messiahship [Anointing] from 'God' to David, which is confirmed by the oath of "God's Holiness", unto David. See verse 35. That promise is not merely to be during the term of his natural life, and limited, but also during the time of his death, while his reign it is suspended or in abeyance, during which time the "sorrows of Hades, or the grave, compass him, and the snares (or bands) of death prevent him" (Psalm 18:5). But his "voice will 'God' hear in the morning, 'O Lord', in the morning (of the Resurrection) will I (he) direct his prayer unto 'God', and will look up" (Psalm 18:6). Then will David's "seed endure forever, and his Throne as the sun before 'God'."
There is but one possible way to evade and destroy these immutable promises made by the 'Holiness' of an unchangeable promise 'God' made to David; that being the unauthorized, unwarrantable, and unjustifiable transfer of David's Anointing to 'Jesus' of Nazareth, by changing all the pronouns from the first to the second person; (i.e. changing the I to He, the my to his, me to him, and mine to thine).
Permit me to ask what property, title, or claim under heaven, could we not obtain such a transfer in any court of justice (law), simply by the transfer of pronouns in any legal instrument, from the first person to the second person. Then no claim could be substantiated by the first person, because it would be a complete forfeiture. But to get away with it, they are counting on the fact that you are uninformed as to David's legal and rightful claim [Anointing] to the throne, to be Israel's King forever.
But this I can prove from the Word of 'God': David never did, neither did 'God' ever do it; as (Psalm 89) above proves, and nearly all the other Psalms, particularly (Psalm 18), wherein the Church of Rome first took the same small liberty of unlawfully transferring David's ['God' given] Messiahship [Anointing] as King, to 'Jesus' of Nazareth.
This they have done, and Protestants too, with a single blow by making a transfer of the first personal pronouns to the second person; thus effecting a complete transfer of David's Lawful Kingship, onto 'Jesus'. Are Christians aware of the dreadful dilemma they have brought themselves unavoidably into, of giving an idol ['Jesus'], his own body and transfering to it, David's rightful position, leaving poor David with nothing! Does that sound anything like what we've been reading so far?
For the sake of elucidating, I shall now divide David's whole career into three parts, embracing his Life, Death, and final Ascension. Under each place some of the Psalms or prophecies which are alone applicable to David in that state. I will begin by introducing that beautiful and descriptive prophecy declared in (2 Samuel 7:19), which I think was intended to convey David's whole time in Life, Death, and Ascension [Immortality]. He says as follows:
(2 Samuel 7:19) And this was yet a small thing in thy sight, 'O Lord' 'God'; but thou hast spoken also of thy servant's house for a great while to come. And is this the manner of man, 'O Lord' 'God'?
By rightly understanding the Word of 'God', how plainly and distinctly every prophecy is applicable, and applicable only to David, in his Life, Death, and Resurrection [Ascension], and cannot be transferred to any other person; for instance, how can we apply (Psalm 18:43-50, Psalm 89:20-24, and Psalm 110) to 'Jesus' of Nazareth, or to any other person except David?
(Psalm 18:43-50) 43Thou hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and thou hast made me the head of the heathen: a people whom I have not known shall serve me. 44As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers shall submit themselves unto me. 45The strangers shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places. 46'The Lord' liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the 'God' of my salvation be exalted. 47It is 'God' that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me. 48He delivereth me from mine enemies: yea, thou liftest me up above those that rise up against me: thou hast delivered me from the violent man. 49Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, 'O Lord', among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. 50Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.
(Psalm 89:20-24) 20I have found David my servant; with my (Holy Oil) have I anointed him: 21With whom my hand shall be established: mine arm also shall strengthen him. 22The enemy shall not exact upon him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him. 23And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him. 24But my faithfulness and my mercy shall be with him: and in my name shall his horn be exalted.
(Psalm 110) 1'The Lord' said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. 2'The Lord' shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. 3Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. 4'The Lord' hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. 5'The Lord' at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath. 6He shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries. 7He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.
The second verse of (Psalm 110) shows from where 'God' will send the Rod of his strength. It will not be from out of Heaven, but out of Zion, exactly the place where David's Body lies incorruptible; and this is the "Tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, from whence shall come the "first dominion"; Zion is the "daughter of Jerusalem" (Micah 4:8), and not the Tower of Edar, as some have, without any scriptural authority, foolishly imagined and asserted.
(Psalm 132:13-18) confirms that Zion is the place from whence 'God' will cause the 'first Dominion," or "Horn," or Tower of strength, to spring or bud. "There will I make the Horn of David to bud; and upon himself shall his Crown flourish," verse 18:
(Psalm 132:13-18) 13For 'the Lord' hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. 14This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it. 15I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy. 17There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for mine anointed. 18His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
I am aware that there are two or three texts in the prophets that at first sight, without a sufficient degree of thought and knowledge, tend to lead us to suppose, that because the word "Branch" is used, it will be a Son of David, and not David himself. But let us impartially and carefully examine the word "Branch," and see that it is a reference to the Ascended Body of David [only], and not to a Son of David (Isaiah 11:1-4):
(Isaiah 11:1-4) 1And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: 2And the spirit of 'the Lord' shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of 'the Lord'; 3And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of 'the Lord': and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears: 4But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth: and he shall smite the earth: with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
"And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse", and a Branch from Jesse we know, is David; indeed the original implies, and as a very wise man observes, "it looks as if it were intended to intimate that the Tree itself would be cut down, or that the power of David's family would be for some time extinct, but it would revive in 'the Latter Days," or "Last Days."
Nowhere, at any time, in scripture does it say; 'And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of David'. Nowhere, at any time, in scripture does it say; 'a Branch shall grow out of David's roots'. No. They all say it is David, a branch from the stem of Jesse, which confirms we are talking about David, not some descendant of David.
Now this is strictly true, and is exactly what I want to set forth, that in the Resurrection [Ascension], the "Branch," or "Stem," or Shoot, from Jesse, the "root," from which is David, and which, although apparently "is cut down," or "for some time extinct, by Death," in "the Latter days" 'God' would raise up that Glorious "Branch," or Stem, or Shoot, from the Root or Stem of Jesse; which will be the identical Body of David, in all the strength and beauty of his Ascended [quickened] Body:
(Isaiah 4:2) In that day shall the branch of 'the Lord' be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel.
To those who are Christians, and consequently admit the testimony of Paul (I know well that this is not acknowledged or admitted by an Israelite), he has clearly shown us in (1 Corinthians 15:36-37), that the Resurrected [Ascended] Body, is a Branch or Shoot from the natural Body, and that this "Branch or Shoot", cannot be quickened except first the body "must die", and then comes the "Branch or Shoot", before it can "bear grain", whether it be of "wheat or of some other grain":
(1 Corinthians 15:36-37) 36Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: 37And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:
Now this is exactly what (Isaiah 11:1) shows us, concerning the "Branch" there mentioned, and concerning the meaning of the word "Branch," whenever it is mentioned by any of the other prophets, and that it always alludes to the same Identical Body of David, raised up at his Ascension, as 'God' declared he will do to David in (Jeremiah 30:9). "And they shall serve 'the Lord' their 'God', and David their King, whom I will raise up unto them", which excludes any other Messiah, as the position is already filled by David, not a Son or descendant of David.
And Israel well knows, that the word "Branch," mentioned in (Jeremiah 23:5-6), alludes to King David as "The Lord Our Righteousness" i.e. [Adonai Tsidkenu]. This, as the Jews know full well, is King David the Anointed [Messiah] of 'God', in all his Ascended Glory and Strength; as they have handed down most faithfully to us, their children, in the covenant of 'God'; and of whom 'God' has declared, 'Surely ye, or 'they' are my Witnesses, Children that will not lie." (Isaiah 63:8).
(Jeremiah 23:5-6) 5Behold, the days come, saith 'the Lord', that I will raise
UNTO* David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. 6In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, 'The Lord' Our Righteousness.
*The problem here is the word UNTO which is an added word, not present in the original text. See: "UNTO" in: 'Quest For The Messiah'. Remove this extra 'added' word, and the meaning becomes crystal clear:
David is the Righteous Branch who will be King, who shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.
I mention all these more particularly, because I have heard some persons, especially Christians, who have been laboring under the influence of their current or former prejudices and prepossessions, say that the Word of 'God', when making use of the word "Branch", must allude to some descendant of David, always having in their minds 'Jesus' as his descendant 'heir apparent'.
They never envision the actual Ascended Body of the Lawfully Anointed David, with Lawfully prepared '(Holy Oil)', as the "Branch or Shoot", springing from David's own original natural Body, in accordance with the accounts just mentioned. Does it matter that Israel's SOVEREIGN Himself, declared that David would be Israel's King and ruler then and forever? And in black and white? And by an irrevocable everlasting covenant. And by NAME*. And King David is that NAME!
*'God' positively declares to David himself in (Psalm 2:1-7) more than 1000 years before 'Jesus' was ever
thought up born: "Thou art my son, this day have I begotten thee". Who among you then, dare apply it to another personage, viz., the 'son of man' called 'Jesus' 1000 years afterward. What darkness!
(Psalm 2:1-7) 1Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? 2The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against 'the Lord', and against his anointed, saying, 3Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us. 4He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: 'the Lord' shall have them in derision. 5Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure. 6Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. 7I will declare the decree: 'the Lord' hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Speaking of the 'son of man' reminds me of a warning I remember reading once, and it completely astounded me. This warning is quite short. It's never mentioned in 'High Places'. In fact, it's never mentioned anywhere. See if you can figure out why:
(Psalm 146:1-3) 1Praise ye 'the Lord'. Praise 'the Lord', O my soul. 2While I live will I praise 'the Lord': I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being. 3Put not your trust in princes, NOR IN THE SON OF MAN, In Whom There Is No Help.
A Glimse Into The Future Davadic Kingdom.
(Isaiah 4:1-6) 1And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. 2In that day shall the branch of 'the Lord' be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. 3And it shall come to pass, that he that is left in Zion, and he that remaineth in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, even every one that is written among the living in Jerusalem: 4When 'the Lord' shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and shall have purged the blood of Jerusalem from the midst thereof by the spirit of judgment, and by the spirit of burning. 5And 'the Lord' will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence. 6And there shall be a tabernacle for a shadow in the day time from the heat, and for a place of refuge, and for a covert from storm and from rain.
In that day mind, means it hasn't happened yet. Not in David's day. Not 1800 years ago. Not now. But sometime in the near future, shall the Branch of 'the Lord' be beauteous and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel. Now, how clear and self-evident is it, that this promise to Israel is yet future. In perfect accordance and confirmation of the above is (Jeremiah 33:14-15):
(Jeremiah 33:14-16) 14Behold, the days come, saith 'the Lord', that I will perform that good thing which I have promised unto the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 15In those days, and at that time, will I cause The Branch Of Righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. 16In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness.
What expression would it be possible for us to choose, to set forth the Ascended Body growing up out of David's natural Body, than by saying, that 'The Branch Of Righteousness' [i.e. the shoot of his Ascension], should grow up to David, (mark well the words, 'grow up to David'). Or by calling Jerusalem, 'Gods' future residence, The Lord Our Righteousness? So again, we are certain from the two last expressions, it is yet future.
Here the very same expressions are used concerning "Judah being saved and Israel dwelling in safety," with the exception that, instead of the word Israel being used in (Jeremiah 33:16) as it is in (Jeremiah 23:6), Jerusalem is inserted, and the feminine gender expressed by the word She, instead of He; She (that is Jerusalem ) shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness" but in (Jeremiah 33:16), it is declared "He, David, shall be called The Lord Our Righteousness"; and this is the righteous "Branch" that 'God' will raise unto or "raise up" unto David, exactly the same word as is used by 'God' in (Jeremiah 30:9):
(Jeremiah 30:9) But they shall serve 'the Lord' their 'God', and David their King, whom I will raise up unto them.
Here then there can be no mistake who 'the Branch' is that is to be "raised unto," or "raised up," to David, because we have "God's" own words for it. The next text I shall bring forward is (Zechariah 3:8):
(Zechariah 3:8) Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant 'the Branch'.
Again we see 'the Branch' refering to King David, set forth, and manifest before Joshua the high Priest, at the time of the Resurrection [David's Ascension], which may be clearly discerned by the 4th verse of the same chapter, where, and when, it is said:
(Zechariah 3:4) And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.
Just the same truth is stated in (Zechariah 6:12-13):
(Zechariah 6:12-13) 12And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh 'the Lord' of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is 'The Branch'; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of 'the Lord': 13Even he shall build the temple of 'the Lord'; and he shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
Now here is an expression whereby we are certain it is David, that is 'The Branch', because we are assured in (Psalms 89:35-36), that:
(Psalms 89:35-36) 35Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David. 36His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before me.
'God' hath "once sworn by his holiness that he will not lie unto David", that "his seed shall endure forever", and "His Throne as the sun before him". In (Psalm 132:18) 'God' declares:
(Psalm 132:18) His enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.
O how blind have Christians been in permitting the sacrilege of the Church of Rome, in robbing David of his Crown by giving it to an imposter.
(Zechariah 12:8) In that day shall 'the Lord' defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of 'the Lord' before them.
(Ezekiel 37:11) Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
(Ezekiel 37:22-24) 22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. 24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
Secondly, that after the resurrection [Ascension] of the Dry "Bones of the whole house of Israel", as is declared in verse 11, then in verse 24, it shows us who is to be King, and consequently whose is the Throne and upon whom the "Crown is to flourish;" and if so, it can never be transferred to another without sacrilege.
Who can fathom the power of false 'gods', priests, and rabbis? Even when presented with the stark evidence in black and white, by a covenant from the Living 'God', people can be still be blinded from seeing the truth. I asked a Minister once, who he thought the King or Messiah over Israel would be in the resurrection? He replied, 'Jesus Christ' to be sure. To which I said, "Well this is who 'The Lord' 'God' SAYS, is going to be the King and Messiah over Israel in the Resurrection":
(Ezekiel 37:21-25) 21And say unto them, Thus saith 'the Lord' 'God'; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: 22And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their 'God'. 24And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them. 25And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince FOREVER.
