Prophecy of Boaz and Ruth Lesson 3
Paradigm of King David
Yeshua is the King, son of King David! The magi from the east ask King Herod “where is the One who is born King of the Jews?” Matthew 2:2. This fulfills the prophecy from
“Of the increase of HIs government and shalom
there shall be no end---on the throne of David
and over his kingdom--to establish and uphold it
through justice and righteousness
from now until forevermore.”
Yeshua had come to bring salvation to Israel and then to the nations. During His brief time of miracles and teaching, the Israelites saw the miracle of dividing the loaves and fishes and wanted to make Yeshua King. John 6:14-15,
“When the people saw the sign that Yeshua performed, they began to say, ‘This is most certainly the Prophet who is to come into the world’ Realizing that they were about to come and seize Him by force to make Him King, Yeshua withdrew again to the mountain, Himself alone.”
Yeshua could not be the King Ben David until He had finished his death on the cross and had risen from the dead. Yeshua had to become the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) first. Hebrews 9:11-12,
“But when Messiah appeared as Kohen Gadol of the good things that have now
come, passing through the greater and more perfect Tent not made with hands
(that is to say not of this creation), He entered into the Holies once for all--not by the blood of goats and calves but by HIs own blood, having obtained eternal redemption.”
Yeshua is coming again and this time as King Ben David. We are in those days awaiting the return of the King Yeshua and the restoration of the Temple and kingdom of heaven on earth. Paul wrote to Timothy, 2 Timothy 2:8,
“Remember Yeshua the Messiah, raised from the dead, from the seed of David---according to the Good News.”
There are so many verses written about Yeshua as the King Ben David. I am just adding two more.
Ezekiel 37:24, “My servant David will be king over them, They will have One Shepherd. They will walk in My ordinances and observe My rulings and do them.”
Hosea 3:4-5 “For Bnei-Ysrael will remain for many days without a king, without a prince, without sacrifice, without sacred pillar, and without ephod or teraphim. Afterwards, Bnei-Yisrael will return, and they will seek ADONAI their God and David their king.Then they will turn in awe to ADONAI and to His goodness in the last days.”
My prayer for you the reader is to read your Bible. Study the verses yourself. Ask the Good Shepherd, Yeshua the King to lead you to green pastures and still waters. Seek the King now and your days will be satisfying and peaceful.
