How God established David’s kingdom forever in the cmportal.in – bible scripture today.
Description: David speaks to the prophet Nathan by saying I dwell in a house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant remains under curtains. Then Nathan said to him, “The Lord is always with you, do all that is in your heart. On the same night, the word of God came to Nathan and said that David should not build a house for God.
God said that David was a shepherd boy. I bought him from shepherd boy and made him a king to rule Israel people. I made his path clear and cut off all the enemies and make his name great on this earth. After he expired, I will raise his seed, and he will be my son, and I will establish his kingdom. He will build a house for me, and his throne will be established forever, and my mercy will be forever on him. I will be his father.
Then Nathan speaks unto David by saying all the words spoken by God. Then David was very delightful and praised to God by saying there is no one like you, neither there is no god besides you. Oh, God, you have redeemed Israel people to show your greatness and mercy. Let the thing that you speak must be happened and establish my house forever because you are the God of Israel, God to Israel, and establish my house as you promised and that your name will be great forever.
He boldly asks God to fulfill the promise. He says David not to build his temple because he killed his enemies in wars. So his hands are not sanctified; that’s the reason for him not to build God’s house. He chose his son named Solomon to build God’s church.
In chronicles 28:11-19 says David planned how to build the church, and he collected the material, furniture used to build the temple, and he gave his son to build. The first temple for the Lord that was built in Jerusalem was Solomon’s temple.
After the death of David, Solomon ruled his father’s throne. He, too, collected the most precious things like gold, silver, bronze, precious stones, which are necessary to build the house of the Lord. God ‘s mercy never departed from Solomon. Even though he did many sins, God forgave him.
From the seed of David, Jesus Christ came to this earth, and God fulfilled the promise which spoken unto the David that his seed will be established forever. In Jeremiah 23:5-6 says that he will reign and prosper and execute righteousness on this earth. His throne will be forever.
David was humble and very anxious to do something for God. So he has a plan to build a house for God so that the ark of the covenant will stay there. He always asks boldly to fulfill the promises that were given by God.
