The Kingdom of David in Bible prophesy

The Bible supports that the Kingdom of David shall be restored prior to the third temple being rebuilt or Messiah’s arrival.

The purpose of this article is to clearly prove that the Kingdom of David shall proceed the arrival of the Messiah or at minimum to cast doubt on the prevailing view that there can not be a Kingdom before the Messiah comes.  Just as the the third temple must proceed certain biblical end time events, so must the Kingdom of David precede the building of the third temple.  If only this one point can be proved scriptural then it is enough to overturn two thousand years of steadfast proclaimed doctrine by both Jews and mostly Christians, that the Messiah will establish the Kingdom and fulfill all scriptures concerning it. This article will emphatically prove that the House of David must come first or at minimum be contemporary with the Third temple and that the house of David is human complete with “sin, wives and uncleanliness” and yet the anointed and chosen Prince of God.

The fact that most Bible commentators refuse to accept a future literal Kingdom of David in the last days means very little since biblical scholars have often and continue to miss the importance and relevance of Israel and have a Euro or Amero-centric viewpoint of the Bible, of God, and Jesus which is not rooted in their perspective which culturally is so far from the middle east in virtually every way, and yet this is how they force the Bible and God to fit into a western paradigm .  In fact I am yet unable to find any Biblical scholar or commentator that agrees except for the Bible which does in my interpretation predict a future and literal pre-Messianic Kingdom of David.

In the Bible Tanach or Old Testament book of Amos in the ninth Chapter and eleventh verse, 911 it speaks of the last days and clearly says that the tabernacle or tent of David shall be rebuilt key phrase here is “as the days of old” the days of old were not a messianic kingdom with God on Earth but the Kingdom of David reaching its pinnacle with King Solomon when all nations came to hear of his wisdom and his government was so successful that in Jerusalem gold and silver was of little value as it was as common as stones.  2 Chronicles 1:15 KJV

Amos 9:11-15  (KJV)

11  In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

12  That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the  Lord  that doeth this.

13  Behold, the days come, saith the  Lord, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt.

14  And I will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel, and they shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and drink the wine thereof; they shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.

15  And I will plant them upon their land, and they shall no more be pulled up out of their land which I have given them, saith the  Lord  thy God.

David_vs_GoliathIn  this scripture below it seems to indicate that the promise given to Abraham  will be assigned to the House of David and the tribe of the Levites. This scripture  mentions a “man to sit on the throne” It makes more sense that this refers to a physical man from David’s own bloodline via King Solomon. The Solomonic Kingdom is vital as Solomon was the chosen anointed by God to inherit the Kingdom He gave to David. The means that any legitimate human who would sit on the throne of any restored Kingdom of David must be provably from the lineage of King David and King Solomon.

Further this can not be speaking of Messiah as it puts the priests and Levites an in equal footing and furthermore you have to attribute seed to messiah, meaning that messiah will have children in the SAME WAY as the Levites, which can not be if it is Jesus. The scripture here refers to a human Kingdom that will have the attributes of God that I will show in the next scripture following the one below.

Jeremiah 33  

17  For thus saith the  Lord; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel;

18  Neither shall the priests the Levites want a man before me to offer burnt offerings, and to kindle meat offerings, and to do sacrifice continually.

19  And the word of the  Lord  came unto Jeremiah, saying,

20  Thus saith the  Lord; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season;

21  Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers.

22  As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, neither the sand of the sea measured: so will I multiply the seed of David my servant, and the Levites that minister unto me.

 

The Kingdom of David is a vital element of Biblical end-times events or eschatology.

The Kingdom of DavidThis is a last days prophesy which is not speaking of the Messiah  but a human Kingdom which will be here is the critical factor “as the angel of the  Lord  before them.” This is critical because the Angel of the Lord is recognized as the Messiah and this means that anyone that rejects this Kingdom when it is established will be as if they reject the Messiah and this Kingdom of David will have the protection and power of God to be as an Angel of the Lord to the rest of the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

 

 

Zechariah 12:8

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.

 

Here is a major prophesy  used by Christian scholars to show Jesus in the Old Testament, and yet often the same scholars will ignore the essence of the prophesy which clearly states that the HOUSE OF DAVID shall be among those that mourn for Him who they pierced like a first born son, how can it be that there is a HOUSE OF DAVID among the people of Israel in an evil world and they have not a KINGDOM OF DAVID? The global events that will precipitate these Biblical end-times prophesy will see a revolution in Israel to establish the Kingdom of David from the House of David and the House of David shall be among the mourners. In all these sets of scripture the house of David is set apart from Jerusalem because I believe the House of David will be as God and to reject this house is to reject God. Beware if your pastors tell you otherwise as they maybe leading you to hell. God shall restore Israel and David and salvation will be linked to accepting not only God but also His vital plan which to reject it when it appears will be risking hellfire. The scripture following the one below leave no doubt as to an end-time human house of David complete with families and wives apart from the rest of the tribes of Israel.

Zechariah 12:10

10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

Zechariah 12:12

12  And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

 

 It is clear to any student of the Bible that Chapters 12 and 13 of the book of Zechariah speak of last days or end times events. In the following scripture it speaks of the House of David in the last days having sin and uncleanliness, and  we saw in an earlier scriptures they have wives also. Are we truly to believe that the fulfillment of the house of David must be Messiah complete with a human family sin and wives? absolutely not! The house of David shall be established prior to Messiah’s arrival and the movement that I announced to reestablish the Kingdom of David in 2010 in Jerusalem Israel  is the hope for Israel and the world.

Zechariah 13:1

 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.

 

 

In the book of Hosea it is very clear and speaks for itself.

Hosea 1:11

Then shall the children of Judah and the children of Israel be gathered together, and appoint themselves one head, and they shall come up out of the land: for great shall be the day of Jezreel.

 

Hos 3:4 For 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:

Hos 3:5 Afterward 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.

 

 

New Testament scripture that back up the restored Kingdom prior to the second coming are many and here are a few:

biblical calendarIn the scripture below Jesus confirms to them that Elijah will come back and restore all things, I interpret this to be the Kingdom, the weights measures and calendar among other things such as turning the hearts of the parents to their children and the hearts of the children to their parents which is the most basic restoration process as any nation is first built of families which are the building blocks of nations.

Matthew 17:11

11  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

 

This final example of “prepare ye the way” one has to ask prepare the way how? well for the King of Kings you prepare a Kingdom and you make all roads lead to it. Humble all the proud beneath the Kingdom and  exalt  the humble and lowly.

Mark 1:3

3  The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.

 

Moved by the Holy Spirit the people of Jerusalem welcome Jesus entering into Jerusalem and they yell the Kingdom of David. The Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of David on Earth are synonymous. The Kingdom of David was established by God himself to have the same attributes He has, It is an everlasting and world-wide Kingdom.

Mark 11:10

Blessed  be  the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.

In the following scripture it clearly states that it is David’s throne that Jesus shall be given. The implications of this and all the scriptures I present can be interpreted in several ways by reasonable people, in totality it appears to indicate and to make sense logically that the entire impetus is that Israel is to establish a Kingdom of David, build the third temple, by then a King shall be chosen from the lineage of David and Solomon who will officiate over the ceremonies, the temple will be accepted by God as His fire will be over the temple to consume the sacrifice and then according to the prophesies the Abomination that makes desolation shall defile the temple with his presence and more.

 

Luke 1:32

He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

The Third Temple and the Restored Kingdom of David.

The following scriptures have yet to be fulfilled and indicate a de-facto Kingdom of David for these to proceed.The building of the Third Temple which is described in the book of Ezekiel has precise measurements and even more time is spent on the building plans of  the Temple of Ezekiel than anything else in the Bible by far!, clearly God expects it to be built by man and not Messiah and in our age not the messianic age as there will be no need for the plans to be put in the Bible, these are the plans for the last or 3rd temple and the only government that will allow it and can legally officiate in the Temple is one from the House of David as is required for the feasts and other ceremonies are in need of the King and it has a place for the King to enter the Temple. In fact there are 4 or 5 full very long and detailed chapters on just the building of the third temple, again these measurements and details would not be needed in another age except that God expects us to build it. Now here is the deal breaker for anyone who does not accept an earthly Kingdom with a human King who is NOT the Messiah

There is a place in the third temple for the Prince
There is a place in the third temple for the Prince

Chapters 40 to 44 speak of the building of the third temple and then it speaks of the role of the Prince, this is the King, The Prince among his people and it clearly indicates he is human and must officiate before God and a special place and walkways are specifically incorporated in the building design of the third temple for a fully human King who is called a Prince because God is the true King of Kings and yet the human Price shall be King of Kings on Earth in terms of authority and those who reject him and his kingdom are at risk of rejecting God Himself!

see below:

 

Ezekiel 44  

44 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.

2  Then said the Lord unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the  Lord, the God of Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.

3  It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread before the  Lord; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and shall go out by the way of the same.

When the Kingdom of David is restored before your eyes  accept it as God’s Kingdom for rejecting it will be rejecting God’s Kingdom, here again is the proof speaking of a future Earthly and very human King from the lineage of David.:

Zechariah 12:8

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.

ezekielmap

The most modern map of the ancient world, the Map of Ezekiel which is yet to be fulfilled clearly has a portion for the Kingdom as well as the Levites as part of the restored Third Temple.

Ezekiel 48

2Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince’s, between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be for the prince.
