The Sceptre Introduction - A
Test of Bible Truth.
The spiritual promises, the promise of the "one
seed," Christ, and of salvation through him, the Bible calls "the
sceptre." This promise as nearly everybody knows, was handed
down through the Jews. Jesus Christ was of the tribe of Judah, and the
House of David "Salvation," Jesus said,
of the Jews" (John 4:22). "To the Jew first," explained Paul, "and
also to the Greek" (Romans 1:16).
God said, "David's throne
was established to last forever."
But, King David's grandson King
Zedekiah appears to have been the last king to sit on David's throne. So
far as is historically known, the last king of David's dynasty to sit upon
that throne was King Zedekiah of Judah, with the Jews a captive people,
with all his sons, and many nobles of Judah killed. There is no historical
record of any continuance of that throne from that year.
Does this mean the "Word
of God" not completely 100% True?
When God made David "King of
Israel" not only was that throne established
forever, but God said in the Psalms, it was to exist continuously,
forever, through all generations! "I
have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,
thy seed [his dynasty] will I establish forever, and build up thy throne
to all generations." (Psalms 89:3-4). That
throne was to stand "forever
as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven" (verses 28-37). "For
thus saith the Lord; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne
of the house of Israel" (Jeremiah 33:17.)
"I have made a covenant with my
chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, thy seed [his dynasty] will
I establish forever,
and build up thy throne to all
generations." (Psalms 89:3-4).
Has the Sceptre departed
from Judah? Has the throne ceased?
How can Jesus Christ, when he returns
again to earth, take over and sit upon a throne that long ago ceased to
exist? Or does it still exist today, as God so bindingly promised, so that
Christ can take over and sit upon a living, going, continuous throne when
The infallibility of the
Bible is at stake,
God's word is at stake!
We will continue to explore this
seemingly false promise. Stick around! We
will show you where David's throne continues to this very day! It's
all recorded in the Bible for those with eyes to see, read and understand.
you have to look for it! Some ask, "Why
would God hide things in His Word?" The
answer to that is - If you love Him and
want to know the truth you will search for it and you will find it! If
you don't love Him enough to search for truth you will remain in the Dark!
