no earthly king

Post by zone on Mon Oct 24, 2011 10:04 pm

excerpt from anti-british-israelism site:

We challenge any man to show where Israel was ever promised a king on earth after the captivity. The earthly king was a rebellion, never a part of the promise, nor of the original setup, and an earthly king has nothing to do with the fulfillment of God's promises to Israel. From this point the prophecy passes to the spiritual, when they should seek the Lord, and David their king.—Hos. 3 :45. "The children of Israel shall abide many days without king, and without prince, and without sacrifice and without pillar, and without ephod or seraphim: Afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God and David their king, and shall come with fear unto the Lord and to his goodness in the latter days." Surely no one would deny that this refers to Christ. The most ardent literalist would hardly be bold enough to say that this passage means the "literal" David. It was Christ, the new David, the spiritual David, whom they would seek, after having been "many days" without a king, without sacrifice, without ephod, without teraphim. Furthermore, this would be "afterward" or "in the latter days," and it is clearly a Messianic prophecy, referring to the first coming of the Lord. It has therefore been fulfilled.

Another passage in Jeremiah adds strength and beauty to these prophetic visions of the Messiah, the David Christ, soon to become their King. I read from Jer. 33:1518: "In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness to grow up unto David; and he shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely: and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, the Lord our righteousness. For thus saith the Lord, David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; 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." The expressions "at that time" and "in the latter days" and "in those days" clearly show that the prophecy refers to Christ, that he would come into the world, be their king, and stay their king, and therefore "David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of, the house of Israel." When? "In those days"—the days of that Righteous Branch, Jesus Christ. Why? Because Christ as king, is king eternally, just as he is "priest forever after the order of Melchizedek"—both king and priest, at the same time, with no change to take place in priesthood or kingship—hence, forever, continually. The prophecy has shifted to the spiritual. The fleshly kingdom and people are no more. And it has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. He became king when he became priest, and he will be king and priest continually until time is no more.

(Ezekiel 34:23) And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.

(Ezekiel 34:24) And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.


At this point David had been dead over 400 years.

Cant be earthly David. Must be the spiritual one, the spiritual King.

Our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ.

(Ezekiel 37:21) And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

(Ezekiel 37:22) And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

(Ezekiel 37:23) Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.


(1 Peter 2:9) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

(1 Peter 2:10) Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

Theres more here in Hosiah about kings:

(Hosea 13:9) O Israel, thou hast destroyed thyself; but in me is thine help.

(Hosea 13:10) I will be thy king: where is any other that may save thee in all thy cities? and thy judges of whom thou saidst, Give me a king and princes?

(Hosea 13:11) I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.


No earthly king.
