February 4: God’s unique relationship with Israel

2 Samuel 7:12-17

“When your days are fulfilled and you rest with your fathers, I will set up your seed after you, who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his Father, and he shall be My son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men and with the blows of the sons of men. But My mercy shall not depart from him, as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from before you. And your house and your kingdom shall be established forever before you. Your throne shall be established forever.”

According to all these words and according to all this vision, so Nathan spoke to David.

This promise has a dual fulfillment.  First was Solomon, the son of David.  Solomon committed many iniquities and was chastened severely.  But God never broke His promise.  The ultimate fulfillment is through Yeshua who was a seed of David and who will establish God’s kingdom forever.


 [Jesus said, “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”]4th
