The "Standing with the Bagwells" Page continues each morning with a bit of personal news, often including a prayer request.

And don't forget that the "Site Map" can point you to any one of dozens of Bible Expositions here on the Website.

Let's study God's Word together! Each day here you will find a new, freshly written Lesson.

PSALM 132 ... verse number 11 ... GOD'S PROMISE TO DAVID ...

(Remember that all these Psalm 132 Lessons can be easily read by "clicking"  HERE or by visiting the SITE MAP Page. All the Lessons that have been written thus far, of course!)

God's Promise to King David, one of them anyway, is voiced in today's Psalm 132 verse. "The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne." Verse 11, God's "swearing" this Truth to David!

By the way, the verb used here is interesting. "Shaba" means "to swear" of course, but in a beautiful sense. Essentially, "to take an oath." But etymologically, "to say something seven times!" Folks, if God says something once it can never fail! But to say it repeatedly our Lord means it more than ever! It's now a vow, a "covenant" really!

The verb for "turn," something here which God will not do, is "shub." I sometimes call it the "repentance" verb of Scripture. God will never repent, "turn back, or withdraw" His decision.

What decision?

What promise?

That David will always have a son or grandson or great-grandson (and so forth generation after generation) to occupy the Throne of Israel!

And this literally happened, for hundreds of years really! A Davidic "Dynasty" was established in the Holy Land!

Here's a partial list of these Royal Monarchs: Solomon, Son of David, then his son Rehoboam. Then Abijah, Asa, Jehoshaphat, Jehoram, Ahaziah, Joash, Amaziah, Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Heaekiah, Manasseh, Amos, Josiah, and others!

But now, today, there is no King!

Has not been a Jewish King since the Babylonian Captivity centuries ago, 586 BC to be precise.

But some day again there will be!

A Son of David on the Throne!

Who?

None other than the Person named in Matthew 1:1. "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham."

Yes!

Jesus, King of the Jews!

He is coming again and will fulfill this Promise of God to David, literally and victoriously and eternally!

"The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne."

God's Word never fails!
