Jesus in the Psalms
There are Sixty three psalms that were written concerning the first and second coming of Jesus Christ I’II am touch ten prophecies concerning his dynasty, exalt by God, established His throne, His death and resurrection and kingdom go on forever
Eternal convent in David line, Ps. 89:28-33, 3 The Lord said,“ I have made a covenant with My chosen one; have sworn an oath to David My servant: 4 ‘I will establish your offspring forever
132;11-12,11 The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath he will not revoke:“ One of your own descendants I will place on your throne.
2 Samuel 7; 11-13 The Lord declares to you: The Lord Himself will make a house for you. 12 When your time comes and you rest with your fathers, I will raise up after you your descendant who will come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. 13 He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. cf. 1 Kin. 8:23; 1 Chr. 17; 2 Chr. 21:7; Pss. 110, 132
Mary mother of Jesus was from the tribe of Judah, born in Nazareth and in the line of king David she was engaged to Joseph they were both in the line King David. Joseph was in royal line King David found in Matthew 1; 2-16 and Mary family tree is found Luke 3; 23-38. As promise in 2 Samuel 7:12-13 Where the royal established in King Solomon line where the royal 1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30,
However, there is a record found in Luke 3; 23-38 and Matthew 1; 1-16 this was the line of King David Mary and Joseph was in the king David line. Mary was found in Luke 3; 23-38 for example in Luke 3 (v. 23) was the father-in-law of Joseph and the father of Mary.also was descended from David through his son Nathan (v. 31 Solomon brother. Joseph line found in Matthew 1; 1-16 where in Matthew 1:6 it states Solomon mother of Bathsheba. Where royal line was established as promise by King David found in 1 Chronicles 3:5–8 and 1 King 1:30. Since God promised King David that his line would reign forever found in 2 Samuel 7:12-13 However,Joseph was not Jesus’ true father since the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary found in Matthew 1:16 and Luke 3:23.
Believer Commentary wrote, In Jeremiah 22:30 God pronounced a curse on this man: Thus says the LORD:” Write this man down as childless, A man who shall not prosper in his days; For none of his descendants shall prosper, Sitting on the throne of David, And ruling anymore in Judah. The nations of Jewish people were capture and were into exile into Babylon where they.cease ruling on the throne; however, the family tree continued on until Joseph
“If Jesus had been the real son of Joseph, He could not redeem mankind from the of sin. Since Joseph was also part of Adam curse. Where Jesus could not be the true lamb of God that would take away the sin of the world. As scriptures declares,” I was sinful when my mother conceived me. For I am conscious of my rebellion, and my sin is always before me. Yet, He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David.
The problem was solved by the miracle of the virgin birth: Jesus was the legal heir to the throne through Joseph. He was the real Son of David through Mary. The curse on Jeconiah did not fall on Mary or her children since she did not descend from Jeconiah shall not prosper, “Yet He had to be the legal son of Joseph in order to inherit the rights to the throne of David.
Exalted by God Ps, 2; 6 -9, “I have consecrated My King on Zion, My holy mountain.” 7 I will declare the Lord’s decree: He 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 and the ends of the earth Your possession.
Reformed Bible Study :7 You are my Son. The divine speech addressed to the divine Son (cf. Heb. 1:5), with David as witness, reflects the promise of 2 Sam. 7:14–the Davidic covenant, which had in view not merely David’s earthly descendants, but the divine Son of whom David was also an ancestor. You are My Son; today I have become Your Father In (Matt. 3:17; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22). At our Lord’s baptism, the Father alluded to verse 7 and announced that Jesus was His beloved Son
Believe Bible Commentary 2:8 But the Father also added, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” In other words, God the Father has promised universal dominion to His Son. All the earth will submit to His authority, and His rule will extend from shore to shore.
John Mcarthur wrote 2 Sam. 7:8–16 as the basis for the Davidic king. It is also the only OT reference to the Father/Son relationship in the Trinity, a relationship decreed in eternity past and demonstrated in the incarnation found in John 1; 14 The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood. Wearing human flesh also mean tp pitch the tent, and also to His resurrection (Acts 13:33, 34) as the earthly affirmations.
Ps 110; 1 This is the declaration of the Lord to my Lord:“ Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
Note there are two Lords one spell with all caps LORD the other one large Cap the other is small capital letters Lord The first use of the word refers unmistakably to Jehovah or Yahweh or YHWH. Where in Exodus 3: 15; it states Jehovah the God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and this is how I am to be remembered from generation to generation.
The other word “Lord” is the Hebrew adon and means “master” or “ruler.” Believer Bible Commentary wrote Although the word itself does not always indicate a Divine Person, the words that follow show that David’s Lord (Adon) was equal with God. One day when Jesus was speaking with the Pharisees in Jerusalem, He asked them what they believed concerning the identity of the Messiah. From whom would the Promised One be descended? They answered correctly that He would be the Son of David. But, Jesus showed them that according to Psalm 110 (which they acknowledged to be messianic) the Messiah would also be David’s Lord. How could He be David’s Son and David’s Lord at the same time? And how could David, the king, have someone who was his Lord on earth?
The answer of course was that the Messiah would be both God and Man. As God, He would be David’s Lord. As Man, He would be David’s Son. And Jesus Himself, combining in His Person both deity and humanity, was David’s Master, and David’s Son.
“Sit at My right hand means a place of honor Reformed Bible Study wrote After His resurrection, Jesus was exalted to the right John Macarthur wrote God the Father invited God the Son in His ascension to sit at the place of honor in the heavenly throne room (cf. Acts. 2:22–36; Heb. 10:10–12)
NKJV Bible Study wrote, This position of high honor beside the Father was given to the Savior upon His resurrection and ascension (Acts 2:33–36; 1 Cor. 15:20–28; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:13)
Foot stool And as heaven is God’s throne, so the earth is his footstool Mt 5:35; Acts 7:49).
Encyclopedia of The Bible wrote, Of the enemies of the Messianic King who have been subdued by Him (Ps 110:1; Matt 22:44; Mark 12:36; Luke 20:43; Acts 2:35; Heb 1:13; and 10:13).
John Gils wrote,” Christ has his enemies; all the enemies of his people are his; some are overcome already by him, as sin, Satan, and the world; and the Jews, his enemies who would not have him to reign over them, have been destroyed: but as yet all things are not put under his feet, which will be; as antichrist, and the kings of the earth that are with him who will be overcome by him; the beast and false prophet will be taken and cast into the lake of fire; where also the old serpent, the devil, after he has been bound and loosed, wall be cast likewise; and when the last enemy, death, shall be destroyed; till that time comes, Christ reigns and will reign, and afterwards too, even to all eternity. The allusion is to the custom of conquerors treading upon the necks of the conquered; see Joshua 10:24.”
Ps 21; 1-13 Lord, the king finds joy in Your strength. How greatly he rejoices in Your victory! 2 You have given him his heart’s desire and have not denied the request of his lips. 3 For You meet him with rich blessings; You place a crown of pure gold on his head.
Established world rule Ps. 2; 8,11; 5-6
8 Ask of Me, and I will make the nations Your inheritance
and the ends of the earth Your possession
Believe Bible Commentary wrote, “But the Father also added, “Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.” In other words, God the Father has promised universal dominion to His Son. All the earth will submit to His authority, and His rule will extend from shore to shore.”
11 Serve the Lord with reverential awe and rejoice with trembling.
Believe Bible Commentary wrote,” The voice of the Holy Spirit is heard next. In a moving evangelistic appeal, He urges kings and rulers to love and serve the LORD. To refuse Him means destruction, whereas to trust Him brings safety and true happiness. “
5 Then He speaks to them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath: 6 “I have consecrated My King on Zion, My holy mountain.”
Belier Bible Commentary,” Eventually, God will break His silence. When He speaks, it will be in such wrath and fury that His enemies will be terrified. They will hear His irrevocable decision: “I have installed My King on My holy hill of Zion.” Once God pronounces this decision, its fulfillment will be as certain as if it had already taken place.
Everlasting life Ps. 21; 4, He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.
Believe Bible Commentary wrotegod gave him life–yes, length of days forever and ever. This latter expression probably means long life in David’s case, but it is literally true of the endless resurrection life of the Messiah.
Ps 45;6 Your throne, God, is forever and ever;
The scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
Believe Bible Commentary wrote The voice of God is heard from heaven addressing Him as God and certifying His reign as an eternal one. We know it is the voice of God, because Hebrews 1:8, 9 Furthermore, he wrote Notice that God addresses His Son as God, one of the clearest proofs of the deity of Christ in the entire Bible. It is true that some translators of Psalm 45:6 render this phrase “Your divine throne endures forever and ever” instead of “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.” But, when they quote this verse in the Hebrews passage, it becomes “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever.”
The crowds mock at the cross Psalm 22, 11- 13, Do not be far from me, because distress is near and there is no one to help. 12 Many bulls surround me; strong ones of Bashan encircle me. 13 They open their mouths against me–lions, mauling and roaring. 17 I can count all my bones; people look and stare at me.
The romans divide his garment, Ps.22; 18 They divided my garments among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing.
Died on a cross Psalm 22; 14, 17, I am poured out like water, and all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me.
Psalm 34; 19- 20 Many adversities come to the one who is righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. 20 He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken
John 19; 31-37 31 Since it was the preparation day, the Jews did not want the bodies to remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a special day). They requested that Pilate have the men’s legs broken and that their bodies be taken away. 32 So the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man and of the other one who had been crucified with Him. 33 When they came to Jesus, they did not break His legs since they saw that He was already dead. 34 But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and at once blood, and water came out. 35 He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth. 36 For these things happened so that the Scripture would be fulfilled: Not one of His bones will be broken. 37 Also, another Scripture says: They will look at the One they pierced.
Decay will set in Ps 16; 10 For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see decay.
John Macarthur wrote These words expressed the confidence of the lesser David, but were applied messianic to the resurrection of the Greater David (the Lord Jesus Christ) both by Peter (Acts 2:25–28) and Paul (Acts 13:35).
Believer Bible Commentary wrote.” Assured of God’s constant care and protection, the Savior faces the future with confidence. His heart is glad. His soul rejoices, and His body is safe. He knows that God will not leave His soul in Sheol or allow His body to see corruption. In other words, Christ will be raised from the dead.
Assured of God’s constant care and protection, the Savior faces the future with confidence. His heart is glad. His soul rejoices, and His body is safe. He knows that God will not leave His soul in Sheol or allow His body to see corruption. In other words, Christ will be raised from the dead.
Warren Wiersbe wrote,” If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable” (1 Cor. 15:19 nkjv). But in His death and resurrection, Jesus has conquered death, and through faith in Him we have a “lively hope” (1 Peter 1:3ff.)
Matthew Henry wrote,” That being God’s holy One in a peculiar manner, sanctified to the work of redemption and perfectly free from sin, he should not see corruption nor feel it. This implies that he should not only be raised from the grave but raised so soon that his dead body should not so much as being to corrupt, which, in the course of nature, it would have done if it had not been raised the third day. We who have so much corruption in our souls, must expect that our bodies also will corrupt (Job 24:19); but that holy One of God who knew no sin saw no corruption. Under the law, it was strictly ordered that those parts of the sacrifices that were not burnt upon the altar should by no means be which maybe pointed at Christ’s rising the third day, that he might not see corruption kept till the third day, lest they should putrefy (Lev. 7:15, 18). As scripture declares Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? Now, the sting of death is sin, because under umbrella of Christ we-have eternal life with him as scripture declares Therefore, we do not give up. Although our outer person is being destroyed, our inner person is being renewed day by day.
Everlasting life Ps. 21; 4, He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.
Length of days forever and ever believer Bible Commentary wrote This latter expression probably means long life in David’s case, but it is literally true of the endless resurrection life of the Messiah.
John Macarthur wrote, “the second part to perpetuation of the dynasty (cf. 2 Sam. 7:13, 16, 29; Pss. 89:4; 132:12).”
NIV Biblical Theology Study Bible wrote David died a physical death, but he lived a long and rich life (1 Kgs 2:10–11). On another level, David’s name was to live on forever through the dynasty that God promised him (2 Sam 7:11b–16) and through the greatest Son that his dynasty would give birth to (Matt 1:1, 18–25; Luke 1:32–33; 2:11).
Ps 45; 6 He asked life of you; you gave it to him, length of days forever and ever.
Warren Wiersbe wrote,” he Righteous King (vv. 6-7a). Those who deny the deity of Christ refuse to accept the translation “Thy throne, O God,” because they want to make the Psalm only Jewish history and not messianic prophecy. However, “Thy throne, O God” is the plain sense of the text and is supported by Hebrews 1:8-9 and Luke 1:30-33. “He shall reign forever and ever” (Rev. 11:15).”
Matthew Henry wrote He here fills his throne with judgment. It is God the Father that says to the Son here, Thy throne, O God! Is forever and ever, as appears Heb. 1:8, 9, where this is quoted to prove that he is God and has a more excellent name than the angels. The Mediator is God; else he neither would have been able to do the Mediator’s work nor fit to wear the Mediator’s crown. Concerning his government observe, 1. The eternity of it; it is forever and ever. It shall continue on earth throughout all the ages of time, in despite of all the opposition of the gates of hell; and in the blessed fruits and consequences of it shall last as long as the days of heaven, and run parallel with the line of eternity itself. Perhaps even then the glory of the Redeemer, and the blessedness of the redeemed, shall be in a continual infinite progression; for it is promised that not only of his government, but of the increase of his government and peace, there shall be no end (Isa. 9:7); even when the kingdom shall be delivered up to God even the Father (1 Cor. 15:24) the throne of the Redeemer will continue. 2. The equity of it: The sceptre of thy kingdom, the administration of thy government, is right, exactly according to the eternal counsel and will of God, which is the eternal rule and reason of good and evil. Whatever Christ does he does none of his subjects any wrong, but gives redress to those that do suffer wrong: He loves righteousness and hates wickedness, Ps. 45:7. He himself loves to do righteousness and hates to do wickedness; and he loves those that do righteousness and hates those that do wickedness. By the holiness of his life, the merit of his death, and the great design of his gospel, he has made it to appear that he loves righteousness (for by his example, his satisfaction, and his precepts, he has brought in an everlasting righteousness), and that he hates wickedness, for never did God’s hatred of sin appear so conspicuously as it did in the sufferings of Christ
Warren Wiersbe wrote Christ is reigning now in heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father (110:1-2; Matt. 26:64; Acts 2:33; 5:31; 7:55-56; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3). He is the King-Priest “after the order of Melchizedek” (Heb. 7–9). One day, His people will reign with Him and share His glory (Rev. 5:10; 20:6).
