DAVID IS THE MESSIAH (ANOINTED)
Prince David Will Sit At The Right Hand Of King.Yah (YHWH)
David is the Anointed (Messiah) and he will be raised from the dead as Prince and Priest to reign over the earth, and the Israelites will be brought back to our own land where we will live in peace:
Jeremiah 30:9 But they shall serve YHWH their God and David their Prince, whom I will raise up for them.
Jeremiah 33:15 In those days and at that time, I will cause the righteous Branch David to spring forth; and he shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth.Ezekiel 34:23-24 I will set up one ruler who will teach them, My servant David will teach them and be their ruler. 24 I, YHWH, will be their God and My servant David will be the Prince in their midst; I, YHWH, have spoken.Ezekiel 37:24-25 24 "My servant David will be Prince over them and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow My Laws and be careful to keep My Decrees. 25 They will live in the land I gave to My servant Jacob, the land where your fathers lived. They and their children and their children's children will live there forever, and David My servant will be their Prince Forever.Hosea 3:5 Afterward the Israelites will return and seek YHWH their God and David their Prince. They will come trembling to YHWH and to His blessings in the Last Days.Micah 5:1-3 2 But thou, Beth'lehem Ephratah, which art little to be among the thousands of Judah, Out of thee shall one come forth unto Me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from ancient days. 2 Therefore will He give them up until the time that she who travaileth hath brought forth; Then the residue of his brethren shall return with the children of Israel. 3 And he shall stand and shall feed his flock in the strength of YHWH, in the majesty of the name of YHWH his God; and they shall abide, for then shall he be great unto the ends of the earth.Psalms 89:20 I have found David My servant and I have Anointed him with My Holy Oil.
Deuteronomy 32:8-9 When the Most High divided the nations, when He separated the sons of Adam, He set the borders of the nations according to the number of the Angels of God. 9 And the people of Jacob became the portion for YHWH and Israel was the measured out land of his Inheritance.
Yah's Kingdom will be a nation of Priests (Exodus 19:6) and Prince David will be seated at his right hand, with the Priest Joshua at David's side. David is always referred to in the prophetic scriptures as the righteous "Branch" who will be raised up from the earth to be Ruler:
Psalms 95:3 For YHWH is a Great God and a Great King above all gods.
Psalms 2:6-9 But I have been made king by him on Zion his holy mountain, 7 declaring the ordinance of YHWH: YHWH said to me, Thou art my Son, today have I begotten thee. 8 Ask of me, and I will give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the ends of the earth for thy possession. 9 Thou shalt rule them with a Rod of Iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces as a potter’s vessel.
Psalms 110 YHWH said to me "lord, sit at My right hand, until I make your enemies kneel at your feet." YHWH shall send out from Zion my mighty scepter to Rule in the Midst of the enemies. My people will offer themselves willingly in the day of warfare, in adornments of holiness, celebrating in the morning dew as young men. YHWH has swore and will not repent; "You are a Priest Forever of the order of Melchi'Zedek." YHWH is at my right hand and will crush kings in the day of wrath. I shall judge among the nations and fill them with dead bodies; I shall crush the heads of many on the earth and drink of the brook in the way; therefore I lift up the head.
Jeremiah 30:7-9 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it. It shall come to pass in that day, says YHWH of Hosts, that I will break the yoke from off your neck and burst your bonds; and strangers shall no more make you their bondservant; but they shall serve YHWH their God and David their Prince whom I will raise up to them.
Jeremiah 33:14-26 14 Behold, days are coming, declares YHWH, when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 15 In those days and at that time, I will cause the Righteous Branch David to rise up; and he shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. 16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which he will be called: Ye-ho-wa'Zedek. 17 For thus says YHWH, "David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel; 18 and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings and to prepare sacrifices continually." 19 The word of YHWH came to Jeremiah, saying, 20 "Thus says YHWH, If you can break My covenant for the day and My covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time, 21 then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he will not have a son to reign on his throne, and the Levitical priests My ministers. 22 As the host of heaven cannot be counted and the sand of the sea cannot be measured, so I will multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me. 23 And the Word of YHWH came to Jeremiah, saying, 24 "Have you not observed what this people have spoken, saying, "The two families which YHWH chose, He has rejected them?" Thus they despise My people; no longer are they a nation in their sight. 25 "Thus says YHWH, "If My covenant for day and night stand not, and the fixed patterns of heaven and earth I have not established, 26 then I would reject the descendants of Jacob and David My servant, not taking from his descendants rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But I will restore their fortunes and will have mercy on them.
Hosea 3:4-5 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a ruler, and without a sacrifice, and without an altar, and without a priesthood, and without manifestations. And afterward shall the children of Israel return and shall seek YHWH their God and David their Prince; and shall be amazed at YHWH and at His goodness in the latter days.
Ezekiel 34:23-31 And I will raise up one shepherd over them, and he shall tend them, even My servant David, and he shall be their shepherd; and I YHWH will be to them a God, and David a ruler in the midst of them; I YHWH have spoken it. And I will make with David a Covenant of Peace and I will utterly destroy evil beasts from off the land; and they shall dwell in the wilderness, and sleep in the forests. And I will settle them round about My mountain; and I will give you the rain, the rain of blessing. And the trees that are in the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her strength, and they shall dwell in the Confidence of Peace on their land, and they shall know that I am YHWH, when I have broken their yoke; and I will deliver them out of the hand of those that enslaved them. And they shall no more be a spoil to the nations, and the wild beasts of the land shall no more at all devour them; and they shall dwell safely, and there shall be none to make them afraid. And I will raise up for them a plant of peace, and they shall no more perish with hunger upon the land, and they shall no more bear the reproach of the nations. And they shall know that I am YHWH their God, and they My people. O house of Israel, saith YHWH God, ye are My sheep, even the sheep of My flock, and I am YHWH your God, saith YHWH God.
Zechariah 12:8-10 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH shall defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and the weak one among them in that day shall be as David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the ANGEL YHWH before them. And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and compassion: and they shall look upon Me, because they have mocked Me, and they shall make lamentation for Me, as for a beloved friend, and they shall grieve intensely for the "FIRSTBORN SON."
Ezekiel prophesied about the resurrection of the Israelites, and said that Yah will put flesh and muscle and skin back upon the dead, and He will put His Spirit within them and the breath of life, and they will live. Yah will then take all the Israelites out of the nations and bring them back to their own land. They will keep Yah's Laws and live in Peace, and Prince David will Rule over them Forever:
Ezekiel 37:1-14 And the hand of YHWH came upon me, and YHWH brought me forth by the Spirit, and set me in the midst of the plain, and it was full of human bones. And he led me round about them every way: and, behold, there were very many on the face of the plain, very dry. And He said to me, son of man, will these bones live? and I said, O YHWH God, thou knowest this. And He said to me, Prophesy upon these bones, and thou shalt say to them, Ye dry bones, hear the Word of YHWH. Thus saith YHWH to these bones; Behold, I will bring upon you the breath of life: and I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and will spread skin upon you, and will put My Spirit into you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am YHWH. So I prophesied as YHWH commanded me: and it came to pass while I was prophesying, that, behold, there was a shaking, and the bones approached each one to his joint. And I looked, and behold, sinews and flesh grew upon them, and skin came upon them above: but there was not breath in them. And He said to me, Prophesy to the wind, prophesy, Son of Man, and say to the wind, Thus saith YHWH; Come from the four winds, and breathe upon these dead men, and let them live. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and the breath entered into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, a very great congregation. And YHWH spoke to me, saying, Son of Man, "THESE BONES ARE THE WHOLE HOUSE OF ISRAEL:" and they say, Our bones are become dry, our hope has perished, we are quite spent. Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith YHWH; Behold, I will open your tombs, and will bring you up out of your tombs, and will bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am YHWH, when I have opened your graves, that I may bring up My people from their graves. And I will put My Spirit within you, and ye shall live, and I will place you upon your own land: and ye shall know that I am YHWH; I have spoken, and will do it, saith YHWH.
Ezekiel 37:15-23 And the Word of YHWH came to me, saying, Son of Man, take for thyself a rod, and write upon it, Juda, and the children of Israel his adherents; and thou shalt take for thyself another rod, and thou shalt inscribe it for Joseph, the rod of Ephraim, and all the children of Israel that belong to him. And thou shalt joint them together for thyself, so as that they should bind themselves into one stick; and they shall be in thine hand. And it shall come to pass, when the children of thy people shall say to thee, Wilt thou not tell us what thou meanest by these things? Then shalt thou say to them, Thus saith YHWH; behold, I will take the tribe of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel that belong to him, and I will add them to the tribe of Juda, and they shall become one rod in the hand of Juda. And the rods on which thou didst write shall be in thine hand in their presence. And thou shalt say to them, Thus saith YHWH God; Behold, I will take the whole house of Israel out of the midst of the nations, among whom they have gone, and I will gather them from all that are round about them, and I will bring them into the land of Israel. And I will make them a nation in My land, even on the mountains of Israel; and they shall have one ruler: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided any more at all into two kingdoms: that they may no more defile themselves with their idols; and I will deliver them from all their transgressions whereby they have sinned, and will cleanse them; and they will be My people, and I YHWH will be their God.
Ezekiel 37:24-28 And My servant David shall be ruler in the midst of them: there shall be one shepherd of them all; for they shall walk in mine ordinances, and keep My judgments, and do them. And they shall dwell in their land, which I have given to My servant Jacob, where their fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell upon it: and David My servant shall be their ruler Forever. And I will make with him a Covenant of Peace; it shall be an Everlasting Covenant with him; and I will establish My sanctuary in the midst of them forever. And My tabernacle shall be among them; and I will be to them a God, and they shall be My people. And the nations shall know that I am YHWH that sanctifies them, when My sanctuary is in the midst of them for ever.
Jeremiah 31: 28-40 Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Juda; not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers in the day when I took hold of their hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt. For they abode not in My Covenant and I disregarded them, saith YHWH. For this is My Covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith YHWH: I will surely put My Laws into their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God and they shall be My people. And they shall not at all teach every one his fellow citizen, and every one his brother, saying, Know YHWH. For all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. For I will be merciful to their iniquities and their sins I will remember no more. Thus saith YHWH, who gives the sun for a light by day and the moon, the stars for a light by night, and makes a roaring in the sea so that the waves thereof roar; YHWH Almighty is My Name: If these ordinances cease from before Me, saith YHWH, then shall the family of Israel cease to be a nation before Me forever. Though the sky should be raised to a greater height, saith YHWH, and though the ground of the earth should be sunk lower beneath, yet I will not cast off the family of Israel, saith YHWH, for all that they have done. Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, when the city shall be built to YHWH from the tower of Hananel to the gate of the corner. And the measurement of it shall proceed in front of them as far as the hills of Gareb, and it shall be compassed with a circular wall of choice stones. And all the Asaremoth even to the brook Kedron, as far as the corner of the horse gate eastward, shall be holy to YHWH; and it shall not fail anymore and shall not be destroyed forever.
The Prophet Jeremiah said that in the coming Kingdom, Prince David (the Branch) will be called Ye-ho-wa'Zedek, which means "Yah He Is Truth." The prophet Zechariah said that Yah is going to bring forth the Branch (David) to build the 3rd Temple and Joshua the Priest is going to help him. Joshua is a descendent of David, (1 Esdras 5:5) and is called the "son of Yeho'Zedek" (David). This Joshua had built the 2nd Temple (Ezra 5:2, Ben Sira 49:12, 50:14, 1 Esdras 6:2, Haggai 2:1-9), and will counsel Prince David on the building plans for the 3rd Temple:
Jeremiah 23:5-6 Behold, the days are coming, says YHWH, when I will raise up David, the righteous Branch, and he shall reign as King and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6 In his days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: Ye-ho-wa'Zedek.
Jeremiah 33:15-16 In those days and at that time, I will cause the righteous Branch David to spring forth; and he shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth. 16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will dwell in safety; and this is the name by which he will be called: Ye-ho-wa'Zedek.
Zechariah 3:1-10 (1) He showed me "Joshua the High Priest" standing before the Angel YHWH, and Satan standing at his right hand to be his adversary. (2) YHWH said to Satan, "YHWH rebuke you, Satan! Yes, YHWH who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Isn't this a burning stick plucked out of the fire?" (3) Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and was standing before the Angel. (4) He answered and spoke to those who stood before him, saying, "Take the filthy garments off of him." To him He said, "Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with rich clothing." (5) I said, "Let them set a clean turban on his head." So they set a clean turban on his head, and clothed him; and the Angel YHWH was standing by. (6) The Angel YHWH protested to Joshua, saying, (7) "Thus says YHWH of Hosts: If you will walk in My ways, and if you will keep My charge, then you also shall judge My house, and shall also keep My courts, and I will give you a place of access among these who stand by." (8) Hear now, Joshua the High Priest, you and your fellows who sit before you; for they are men who are a sign: for, Behold, I will bring forth My servant the Branch. (9) For, behold, the stone that I have set before Joshua; on one stone are seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the engraving of it, says YHWH of Hosts, I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. (10) In that day, says YHWH of Hosts, you will invite every man his neighbor under the vine and under the fig tree.
Zechariah 6:9-15 (9) And the Word of YHWH came to me: (10) "Take from the exiles Heldai, Tobijah, and Yedaiah, who have arrived from Babylon; and go the same day to the house of Yosiah, the son of Zephaniah. (11) Take from them silver and gold, and make a crown and set it upon the head of Joshua the High Priest, the son of Yeho'Zedek; (12) and say to him, "Thus says YHWH of Hosts, Behold! a man, Branch is his name, and from his place he will branch, and he shall build the temple of YHWH. (13) It is he who shall build the temple of YHWH, and shall bear royal honor, and shall sit and rule upon his throne. And he shall be a Priest on his throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between the two of them." (14) And the crowns shall be to Helem, Tobijah, Yedaiah, and Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a reminder in the temple of YHWH. (15) "And those who are far off shall come and help to build the temple of YHWH; and you shall know that YHWH of Hosts has sent me to you. And this shall come to pass, if you will diligently obey the voice of YHWH your God."
Yah promised David an eternal throne in Jerusalem and that David will rule all the nations with a rod of iron, and so Yah defends Jerusalem for the sake of David and for the sake of Yah's Name:
Isaiah 37:35 For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and "for the sake of My servant David."
2 Kings 19:34 For I will defend this city to save it for My own sake and "for the sake of My servant David."Psalm 2:1-12 1 Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against YHWH and against his Anointed One. 3 "Let us break their chains," they say, "and throw off their fetters." 4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; YHWH scoffs at them. 5 Then he rebukes them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath, saying, 6 "I have installed My Prince in Zion, My Holy Hill." 7 I will proclaim the decree of YHWH: YHWH said to me, "you are My son; today I have become your Father. 8 Ask of Me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will rule them with an Iron Scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery." 10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve YHWH with fear and exult Him with trembling. 12 Take instruction, lest He be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for His wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
David is the Anointed (Messiah), who is higher then all the Rulerss of the earth, and his throne will be established Forever:
Psalms 89:15-37 15 Blessed are the people who know the festal shout, who walk, O YHWH, in the light of Your countenance, 16 who exult in Your Name all the day, and extol Your righteousness. 17 For You are the glory of their strength; by Your favor our horn is exalted. 18 For our shield belongs to YHWH our King, the Holy One of Israel. 19 Of old You did speak in a vision to Your faithful one and say: "I have set the Crown upon one who is mighty and I have exalted one chosen from the people. 20 I have found David My servant and I have Anointed him with My Holy Oil, 21 so that My hand shall Ever abide with him and My arm also shall strengthen him. 22 The enemy shall not outwit him, the wicked shall not humble him. 23 I will crush his foes before him and strike down those who hate him. 24 My Faithfulness and My Steadfast Love shall be with him, and in My Name shall his horn be exalted. 25 I will set his hand on the sea and his right hand on the rivers. 26 He shall call to me, "Thou art My Father, My God, and the Rock of My salvation." 27 And I WILL MAKE HIM THE FIRSTBORN, the highest of the princes of the earth. 28 My steadfast love I will keep for him Forever, and My Covenant will stand firm for him. 29 I will establish his line forever and his throne as the days of the heavens. 30 If his children forsake My Law and do not walk according to My Ordinances, 31 if they violate My Statutes and do not keep my Commandments, 32 then I will punish their transgression with the rod and their iniquity with scourges; 33 but I will not remove from him My Steadfast Love, or be false to My Faithfulness. 34 I will not violate My Covenant or alter the Word that went forth from My Lips. 35 Once for all I have sworn by My Holiness; I will not lie to David. 36 His line shall endure Forever and his throne as long as the sun before Me. 37 Like the moon it shall be established Forever; it shall stand firm while the skies endure."Psalm 132:1-18 YHWH, remember David and all my affliction; 2 How I swore to YHWH and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, 3 "I will not enter my house or get into my bed; 4 I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, 5 until I find a place for YHWH, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob." 6 Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah, we found it in the fields of woods. 7 "Let us go to his dwelling place; let us worship and kneel at his feet!" 8 Arise, O YHWH, and go to thy resting place, thou and the ark of thy might. 9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let thy saints shout for joy. 10 For Thy servant David's sake, do not turn away the face of Thy Anointed one. 11 YHWH swore to David a sure oath from which He will not turn back: "The sons of your body I will set on your throne. 12 IF your sons keep My covenant and My testimonies which I shall teach them, their sons also forever shall sit upon your throne." 13 For YHWH has chosen Zion; He has desired it for His habitation: 14 "This is My resting place forever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it. 15 I will abundantly bless her provisions; I will satisfy her poor with bread. 16 Her priests I will clothe with salvation, and her holy ones will shout for joy. 17 There I will make the horn of David rise up, I have prepared a lamp for My Anointed. 18 His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon himself his crown shall shine.1 Kings 11:9-13 YHWH was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned away from YHWH, the God of Israel, who had appeared to him twice, 10 and had commanded him concerning this thing, that he should not go after other gods: but he did not keep that which YHWH commanded. 11 Therefore YHWH said to Solomon, Because this is done of you, and you have not kept my covenant and my statutes which I have commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom from you and will give it to your servant. 12 Notwithstanding in your days I will not do it, for David your father's sake: but I will tear it out of the hand of your son. 13 However I will not tear away all the kingdom; but I will give one tribe to your son, for David my servant's Sake and for Jerusalem's Sake which I have chosen.
The following is Isaiah 53 taken from the Jonathan Ben Uziel Targum that was transcribed in the first century BCE, more then 30 years before the New Testament Jesus was born. Isaiah also calls David the righteous "Branch," just as the prophets Jeremiah and Zechariah called him.
ISAIAH 531. Who hath believed this our report? and to whom is the power of the arm of YHWH revealed.2. The Righteous is great before Him, behold, the Branch will come forth; like a tree that sends forth its Root to the stream of water; Thus shall the generation of the just multiply in the land, which hath need of him.3. His visage is not the visage of a common person, nether his fear the fear of a plebeian; but a Holy Brightness shall be his Brightness, that every one who seeth him shall meditate upon him.4. Although he is in contempt; yet he shall cut off the glory of all the kingdoms, they shall be weak and wretched. Lo, we are in contempt and not esteemed, as men of pain and appointed to sickness, and as if He had removed the face of His messiah from us.5. Therefore he shall pray for our sins, and our iniquities for "his sake" shall be forgiven us; for we are considered crushed, smitten of YHWH and afflicted.6. He shall build the house of the sanctuary, which has been profaned on account of our sins; he was delivered on account of our iniquities and through his doctrine Peace shall be multiplied upon us, and through the teaching of his words our sins shall be forgiven us when we shall pray.7. All we like sheep have been scattered, every one of us has turned to his own way; it shall be the pleasure of YHWH to forgive the sins of all of us for "his sake."8. He shall pray and he shall be answered, yea, before he shall open his mouth, he shall be heard; he shall deliver over the mighty of the nations as a lamb to the slaughter, and like a sheep before her shearers is dumb, none shall in his presence open his mouth or speak a word.9. He shall gather our captives from affliction and pain, and who shall be able to narrate the wonderful works which shall be done for us in his days? He shall remove the rule of the nations from the land of Israel, the sins which My people have sinned have come upon them.10. And he shall deliver the wicked into hell, for the riches and treasures which they got by violence, through death and destruction, that they who commit sin shall not remain and shall not speak guile with their mouths.11. And it was the pleasure of YHWH to refine and to purify the remnant of His people, in order to cleanse their souls from sin that they might see the kingdom of their messiah, and that their sons and daughters might multiply and prolong their days, and those that do the Law of YHWH shall prosper through His pleasure.12. He shall deliver their souls from the servitude of the nations, they shall see the vengence upon their enemies; they shall be satisfied with the spoil of their kings. By his wisdom he shall justify the righteous, in order to make many to keep the Law, and he shall pray for their sins.13. Therefore I will divide to him the spoil of many people and the treasures of strong fortifications; he will divide the spoil because he is delivered from death and will make the rebellious to do the Law; he shall pray for the sins of many and as for the transgressors, each shall be pardoned for "his sake."
JESUS WAS NOT THE MESSIAH
