17 “There I will cause the horn of David to spring forth; I have prepared a lamp for Mine anointed. 18 “His enemies I will clothe with shame, But upon himself his crown shall shine.”
God promised David an heir, who would sit on his throne forever. Israel split after David’s son, Solomon died. The line of David, lived on in the nation of Judah for several hundred years, but eventually came to end. Did God not live up to His promise? Of course not. This hear would be born hundreds of years later, in David’s hometown of Bethlehem. Jesus was the son of David. He is the heir who will reign forever. He is the Horn of David, talked about in verse 17. He is God’s anointed, who will reign forever. He will one day bring shame upon His enemies and receive a shining crown, which will last forever.
The first time Jesus came, He came as a suffering servant. One who came to die for our sins. The next time He comes, He will come us a conquering King. He will come to establish His forever throne! No one will ever take Him off of His throne. He will rule eternity. He is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In all of time, no other king will be His equal. His reign will be just and their will be no corruption. Oh how great of day that will be, when King Jesus takes His throne! Come soon Lord Jesus!
Oh Jesus, King Jesus, I worship You. For You alone are worthy of my worship. You alone will reign forever and ever. You are the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. You are the Holy Son of God. You are fulfillment of God the Father’s promises. You and You alone are able to satisfy the promises of God. No one else can. What a wonderful day it will be when You, O Lord take Your throne! Come soon Lord Jesus. I wait with great anticipation of Your return! Again, come soon Lord! Amen!
