Bible Lesson: Prophecies And Their Fulfillment:
Bible Prophecy: Heir To David's Throne.
Bible Text: The Prophecies.
Isaiah 9:6,7 NLT (Hope in The Messiah)
6 For A Child is born to us, A Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders.
And He will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince Of Peace.
7 His government and its peace will never end. He will rule with fairness and justice from the throne of His ancestor David for all eternity. The passionate commitment of
The Lord Of Heaven’s Armies will make this happen!
Isaiah 11:1 NLT (A Branch from David’s Line)
Out of the stump of David’s family will grow A Shoot— yes, A New Branch bearing fruit from the old root.
Isaiah 53:1-6 NLT (Be sure to read all verses 1-12.)
1 Who has believed our message? To whom has The Lord revealed His powerful arm?
2 My servant grew up in The Lord’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about His appearance, nothing to attract us to Him.
3 He was despised and rejected— A Man Of Sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on Him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.
4 Yet it was our weaknesses He carried; it was our sorrows that weighed Him down.
And we thought His troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for His own sins!
5 But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.
6 All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet The Lord laid on Him the sins of us all.
II Samuel 7:12-17 ERV (Nathan revealing a vision of The Lord, to David.)
12 “‘When your life is finished, you will die and be buried with your ancestors. But then I will make one of your own children become the king (Solomon).
13 He will build a house for My name, and I will make his kingdom strong forever.
14 I will be his father, and he will be My son. When he sins, I will use other people to punish him. They will be My whips.
15 But I will never stop loving him. I will continue to be loyal to him. I took away My love and kindness from Saul. I pushed Saul away when I turned to you.
16 Your family of kings will continue—you can depend on that! For you, your kingdom will continue forever! Your throne will stand forever!’”
17 Nathan told David about that vision. He told David everything God had said.
Matthew 1:1-25 KJV
1 The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, The Son Of David, The Son Of Abraham.
2 Abraham begat Isaac; and Isaac begat Jacob; and Jacob begat Judas and his brethren;
3 And Judas begat Phares and Zara of Thamar; and Phares begat Esrom; and Esrom begat Aram;
4 And Aram begat Aminadab; and Aminadab begat Naasson; and Naasson begat Salmon;
5 And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab; and Booz begat Obed of Ruth; and Obed begat Jesse;
6 And Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias;
7 And Solomon begat Roboam; and Roboam begat Abia; and Abia begat Asa;
8 And Asa begat Josaphat; and Josaphat begat Joram; and Joram begat Ozias;
9 And Ozias begat Joatham; and Joatham begat Achaz; and Achaz begat Ezekias;
10 And Ezekias begat Manasses; and Manasses begat Amon; and Amon begat Josias;
11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
13 And Zorobabel begat Abiud; and Abiud begat Eliakim; and Eliakim begat Azor;
14 And Azor begat Sadoc; and Sadoc begat Achim; and Achim begat Eliud;
15 And Eliud begat Eleazar; and Eleazar begat Matthan; and Matthan begat Jacob;
16 And Jacob begat Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ.
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as His mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with Child of The Holy Ghost.
19 Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.
20 But while he thought on these things, behold, The Angel Of The Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of The Holy Ghost.
21 And she shall bring forth A Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of The Lord by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth A Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God With Us.
24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as The Angel Of The Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
25 And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called His name Jesus.
This King of kings and Lord of lords is coming to earth again,but not until the rapture of the church and the following tribulation has taken place.
Daniel 7:13,14 KJV
13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like The Son Of Man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to The Ancient Of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
14 And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
I Timothy 6:15 NLT
For, At just the right time Christ will be revealed from heaven by the blessed and only Almighty God, The King of all kings and Lord of all lords.
Revelation 19:11-16 KJV
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called
Faithful And True, and in righteousness He doth Judge and make war.
12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself.
13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in Blood: and His name is called The Word Of God.
14 And the armies which were in heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 And out of His mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a rod of iron: and He treadeth the wine press of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He hath on His vesture and on His thigh a name written,
King Of kings, And Lord Of lords.
Matthew 24:29,30 KJV
29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
30 And then shall appear the sign of The Son Of Man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see The Son Of Man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matthew 25:31-46 NLT (Christ's Second Coming And The Final Judgment
31 “But when The Son Of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit upon His glorious throne.
32 All the nations will be gathered in His presence, and He will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 He will place the sheep at His right hand and the goats at His left.
34 “Then The King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world.
35 For I was hungry, and you fed Me. I was thirsty, and you gave Me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited Me into your home.
36 I was naked, and you gave Me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for Me. I was in prison, and you visited Me.’
37 “Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink?
38 Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing?
39 When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
40 “And The King will say, ‘I tell you The Truth, when you did it to one of the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were doing it to Me!’
41 “Then The King will turn to those on the left and say, ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons.
42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed Me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give Me a drink.
43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite Me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give Me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit Me.’
44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’
45 “And He will answer, ‘I tell you The Truth, when you refused to help the least of these My brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help Me.’
46 “And they will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous will go into eternal life.”
Luke 12:36-40 KJV
36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their Lord, when He will return from the wedding; that when He cometh and knocketh, they may open unto Him immediately.
37 Blessed are those servants, whom The Lord when He cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that He shall gird Himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.
38 And if He shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.
39 And this know, that if the good man of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
40 Be ye therefore ready also: for The Son Of Man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
John 3:16-18 KJV
16 For God so loved the world, that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of The Only Begotten Son Of God.
Matthew 24:44 KJV
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not The Son Of Man cometh.
