King of Kings

‘But they shall serve the LORD their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them. Jeremiah 30:9

At first glance this scripture seems to indicate David will be the future King . However King David lived hundreds of years before the prophet Jeremiah was born. The reference to King David is symbolic for the fulfillment of Jesus Christ as the King of Kings (Revelation 19:6)

The crowds going ahead of Him, and those who followed, were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David; BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD; Hosanna in the highest!” Matthew 21:9

The Jews knew the reference to this prophecy, as Jesus entered Jerusalem as there King of Kings, they said Hosanna to the Son of David. So how can the Son of God also be the Son of David?  Many probably pondered how would the Messiah fulfill this prophecy.

When Joseph and Mary took Jesus to Bethlehem to register him for the census. This actually fulfilled the Biblical prophecy. Jesus was officially registered Son of Joseph from the line of David, while we also know Jesus is the only begotten Son of God

The end of this scripture states “Whom I will raise up for them” Jesus has been exalted the name above every name (Philippians 2:9) and all authority in Heaven and Earth has been given to him (Matthew 28:18) Every knew will bow and tongue will confess in Jesus Name Amen
