February 17, 2024 | The Davidic Covenant, Part 2


God’s Promise to David

In 2 Samuel 7, God made a wonderful covenant with David with implications that reached back hundreds of years earlier and extended to Jesus the Messiah. Last week we studied how this Davidic Covenant began with the patriarch Jacob’s blessing to his son, Judah, David’s ancestor through whom royalty was promised. This week we study David’s reverent love for the Lord and the moment God made His covenant with David.

Though he was an exalted king, David was humble. Unlike Kings Saul and Solomon, he knew that God was the true King of Israel who allowed him to sit on the throne. He desired to build a Temple for the Ark of the Covenant, God’s holy throne, which would be made higher than his own so that the Lord would be exalted above all. So God promised David a kingly dynasty that would last forever through his greatest descendant: Jesus! Learn about David’s humble heart and everlasting kingdom in this week’s show!

Apples of Gold: No One Will Remember Her

Everyone fears death, but death cannot be avoided. That was the subject of conversation among Zvi and his neighbors when an elderly woman in their neighborhood died. Many were lamenting her passing and how she had no money or children to ensure that her memory would live on. But there was hope for her soul. Hear how Zvi used this opportunity to speak about the Messiah and the secure future he could look forward to because of his belief in Jesus.
