SAA Notes

How should you make known the faithfulness of God today? Look at what Ethan wrote – the covenant with David, the heavens praise your wonders, you rule the surging sea, righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne. Those words in verse 4 find their fulfilment in Jesus – the heir of David who lives forever. The line stopped with Jesus!

SJA Notes

* Faithful God, Your throne is founded on righteousness and justice – Hallelujah!

“You have said, ‘I have made a covenant with my chosen one; I have sworn to David my servant: “I will establish your offspring forever, and build your throne for all generations.”‘”

Here we have words that are true of King David, son of Jesse, but are true in a deeper and more complete way of Jesus, King of kings, God in the Person of the Son.

In 2 Samuel 7 we read words given to David,

“And your house and your kingdom shall be made sure forever before me. Your throne shall be established forever.”

David’s line extends down through the turbulent history of Israel. His lineage exists in both Joseph (the royal throne line from Solomon, son of David – See Matthew 1) and through Mary (the biological line, from Nathan, son of David – See Luke 3).

We believe that this promise, told to David, is ultimately seen true in Jesus.

Jesus is God’s chosen one, the Lord’s Christ in final fulfilment.

Jesus is the Forever King!

He is God’s steadfast love built up forever – In Jesus we see God’s establishment of His faithfulness.

Hallelujah, what a Saviour!

* God Above,

You alone are God, there is none like You.

You alone spun creation into being with Your word, a work in motion.

You alone saw fit to send Yourself as the sacrificial lamb, so that we might escape the just punishment for our sin, our rejection of You.

You alone are building for us a new creation, where the Lamb and the bride will dwell together, where You our God will dwell with us Your people.
