A number of prophecies foretold that the Messiah would become heir to the throne of David (2 Samuel 7:11-13; Psalms 132:11; Isaiah 9:6-7; Jeremiah 23:6-7; et al). The Bible identifies, and confirms by its testimony, that Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah. and that he, Jesus Christ, the Messiah, would be heir to the throne of David (Luke 1:31-33; Acts 2:30).
The link between David, king of Israel, and Jesus Christ the Messiah is a significant theme in Scripture, and understanding the historical and prophetic link between the two ought to be of interest to any student of the Bible.
David, though human, and one who committed sins and mistakes at times, nevertheless was on the whole faithful to God. David was a great king, under whose rule Israel prospered, and the kingdom of Israel became a great Empire, far more significant than many realize.
Successfully following the path that God wants us to follow as Christians is knowing the primary goal we ought to pursue. Sometimes individuals — even in God’s Church — get sidetracked into pursuing a wrong goal into a blind alley, so to speak. We also need to follow the steps that can allow us to reach the goal of God’s kingdom.
The primary goal we are assigned as Christians is discussed in this sermon, and principles you can follow to successfully achieve it.
The true Church of God consists of those whose names are registered in heaven — in the Book of Life. Beyond that, what is its purpose? What is the mission of the Church in today’s world?
Scripture reveals several responsibilities all members of God’s Church are accountable for. It’s important that everyone who is a part of the Church understands what those responsibilities are. And those who are not yet a part of the Church can benefit also from knowing what God expects of its members.
According to Scripture, zeal, properly exercised and directed, is an important key to winning the spiritual battles we must face. With zeal for victory, we can overcome, and reach the goal of God’s kingdom.
What is pictured by God’s Feast of Tabernacles reveals a richness, depth and magnitude to God’s grace far beyond what most have imagined. Among the gifts to be given: salvation, liberation, just government, an end to evils such as crime, fraud, theft, etc., long life, abundance for all, and these are just the beginning of blessings God will pour out on mankind.
