ABRAHAM
DAVID

INTRODUCTION

Matthew 1:1
The book of the genealogy of Jesus Messiah, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

• The New Testament(Messianic Writings)are the Apostolic authoritative interpretation of the Torah and Prophets in light of the Coming Kingdom of Messiah.
• Ephesians 2:19-20 So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus Himself as the cornerstone.
The Coming Kingdom is the fulfillment of the covenants of promise.
• Ephesians 2:11-12 So then, remember that at one time you were Gentiles in the flesh—called “the uncircumcised” by those called “the circumcised,” which is done in the flesh by human hands. 12 At that time you were without the Messiah, excluded from the citizenship of Israel, and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.
• Ephesians 3:6 The Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body, and partners of the promise in Messiah Jesus through the gospel.
2 Corinthians 1:20-22
For every one of God’s promises is “Yes” in Him. Therefore, the “Amen” is also spoken through Him by us for God’s glory. Now it is God who strengthens us, with you, in Messiah and has anointed us. He has also sealed us and given us the Spirit as a down payment in our hearts.
• Note what Paul says earlier in the text (vs.17), in the same way that he longed to be with the Corinthians and wasn’t able to get to them. He states that he wasn’t purposing according to the flesh. Paul is saying that the promises are ‘yes’ in Jesus, yet future in their fulfillment. The kingdom would come entirely from God without any help from man.
• These promises constitute what the very fulfillment of the Kingdom will be.
• The Kingdom of Messiah is future, physical, and geographical, because it belongs to specific people:
• Daniel 2:44 In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed , and that kingdom will not be passed on to another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever.
• Daniel 7:21, 27
As I was watching, this horn waged war against the holy ones and was prevailing over them until the Ancient of Days arrived and a judgment was given in favor of the holy ones of the Most High, for the time had come, and the holy ones took possession of the kingdom.
The kingdom, dominion, and greatness of the kingdoms under all of heaven will be given to the people, the holy ones of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will serve and obey Him.’
“That God’s promise to me may not be fulfilled in my own lifetime but only in that of my descendants or other kinfolk (including my nation) seems unjust today in ways that, for the most part, it did not in biblical times.”1
Romans 9:4-5
They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the temple service, and the promises. The ancestors are theirs, and from them, by physical descent, came the Messiah, who is God over all, praised forever. Amen.
Romans 15:8
For I say that the Messiah became a servant of the circumcised on behalf of God’s truth, to confirm the promises to the fathers.
• The purpose of the first coming and the crucifixion was to define the shape of this age and to confirm the future promises of the kingdom, exhorting us to flee from the wrath to come by losing our life in the gospel and living for the age to come.
• Paul describes the age to come in Romans 5:18 as ‘Justification of Life’ This is the ultimate description of what we are living for: eternal life! The Restoration of the Heavens and earth, with man bearing the image of God in holiness forever. This reality is described most clearly through the promises given to Abraham and David.

ABRAHAM

Genesis 12:3
I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you.

Genesis 15:5-7 (Romans 4:6-8)
He took him outside and said, “Look at the sky and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” Then He said to him, “Your offspring will be that numerous.” Abram believed the Lord, and He credited it to him as righteousness. He also said to him, “I am Yahweh who brought you from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess.”

Justification of Life

Genesis 17:7-8
I will keep My covenant between Me and you, and your future offspring throughout their generations, as an everlasting covenant to be your God and the God of your offspring after you. And to you and your future offspring I will give the land where you are residing—all the land of Canaan—as an eternal possession, and I will be their God.”

Everlasting- Eternal Life

Micah 7:20
You will show loyalty to Jacob and faithful love to Abraham, as You swore to our fathers from days long ago.

Promise in the Prophets

John 8:56
Your father Abraham was overjoyed that he would see My day; he saw it and rejoiced.”

Promise in the gospels yet to be fulfilled

 

DAVID

2 Samuel 7:1-13, 22-24,
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. He will build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.

This is why You are great, Lord God. There is no one like You, and there is no God besides You, as all we have heard confirms. And who is like Your people Israel? God came to one nation on earth in order to redeem a people for Himself, to make a name for Himself, and to perform for them great and awesome acts, driving out nations and their gods before Your people You redeemed for Yourself from Egypt. You established Your people Israel to be Your own people forever, and You, Lord, have become their God.

Psalm 32:1-2 (Romans 4:3)
How joyful is the one
whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered!
How joyful is the man
the Lord does not charge with sin and in whose spirit is no deceit.

Justification of Life

Isaiah 55:3-5
Pay attention and come to Me;
listen, so that you will live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you, the promises assured to David.
Since I have made him a witness to the peoples,
a leader and commander for the peoples,
so you will summon a nation you do not know,
and nations who do not know you will run to you.
For the Lord your God,
even the Holy One of Israel,
has glorified you.”

Everlasting- Eternal Life/Promise in the Prophets

Luke 1:32-33
He will be great
and will be called the Son of the Most High, and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David.
He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.

Promise in the gospels yet to be fulfilled in the Millennium

Hebrews 11:1, 6, 13, 39-40
Now faith is the reality of what is hoped for, the proof of what is not seen. Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for the one who draws near to Him must believe that He exists and rewards those who seek Him. These all died in faith without having received the promises, but they saw them from a distance, greeted them, and confessed that they were foreigners and temporary residents on the earth. All these were approved through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, since God had provided something better for us, so that they would not be made perfect without us.

We wait eagerly for the fulfillment of the promises in the Kingdom of God! We greet them from a distance by faith!
