Yair, Hi. I sort of said wow when I
read this portion of your Jer.36 email.
I have been studying intently for a couple weeks now the subject of King
David and that it certainly seems to me that the bible states prettly
clearly many times that King David will in fact be Messiah. It seems that
everyone (Jew and Christian alike) are pretty much saying it is a son of
David. Do you agree that King David may be Messiah?
We have answered this question once before somewhere.
Verses concerning David in the end time include:
[Hosea 3:5] AFTERWARD SHALL THE CHILDREN
OF ISRAEL RETURN, AND SEEK THE
LORD THEIR GOD, AND DAVID THEIR KING; AND SHALL FEAR THE LORD AND HIS
GOODNESS IN THE LATTER DAYS.
[Ezekiel 34:24] AND I THE LORD WILL
BE THEIR GOD, AND MY SERVANT DAVID A
PRINCE AMONG THEM; I THE LORD HAVE SPOKEN IT.
[Ezekiel 37:24] AND DAVID MY SERVANT
SHALL BE KING OVER THEM; AND THEY ALL
SHALL HAVE ONE SHEPHERD: THEY SHALL ALSO WALK IN MY JUDGMENTS, AND OBSERVE
MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM.
Other verses continue in the same vein.
There is one minority Rabbinical opinion
that the intention really is to a
Another opinion says that there will be a Messiah son of David as the main
ruler and a resurrected David ruling beneath him.
In my opinion the intention is to a Messiah physically descended from
David and embodying the substance of David, maybe even a kind of
reincarnation of David.
At all events a Messiah descended from David will arise at some time.
[Isaiah 11:1] AND THERE SHALL COME FORTH A ROD OUT OF THE STEM OF JESSE,
AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW OUT OF HIS ROOTS:
To David it was promised:
[2-Samuel 7:1 AND WHEN THY DAYS BE FULFILLED, AND THOU SHALT SLEEP WITH THY
FATHERS, I WILL SET UP THY SEED AFTER THEE, WHICH SHALL PROCEED OUT OF THY
BOWELS, AND I WILL ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM.
[2-Samuel 7:13] HE SHALL BUILD AN HOUSE
FOR MY NAME, AND I WILL STABLISH
THE THRONE OF HIS KINGDOM FOR EVER.
[2-Samuel 7:14] I WILL BE HIS FATHER,
AND HE SHALL BE MY SON. IF HE COMMIT
INIQUITY, I WILL CHASTEN HIM WITH THE ROD OF MEN, AND WITH THE STRIPES OF
THE CHILDREN OF MEN:
It was promised to David that out of
his son Solomon would arise a
descendant who would rule forever. David had other sons. The promise was
only to the descendant of David through Solomon implying that the Eternal
Kingdom will be ruled over by a descendant of David (through Solomon)
rather than David himself.
[1-Chronicles 22:9] BEHOLD, A
SON SHALL BE BORN TO THEE, WHO SHALL BE A
MAN OF REST; AND I WILL GIVE HIM REST FROM ALL HIS ENEMIES ROUND ABOUT: FOR
HIS NAME SHALL BE SOLOMON, AND I WILL GIVE PEACE AND QUIETNESS UNTO ISRAEL
IN HIS DAYS.
[1-Chronicles 22:10] HE SHALL
BUILD AN HOUSE FOR MY NAME; AND HE SHALL BE
MY SON, AND I WILL BE HIS FATHER; AND I WILL ESTABLISH THE THRONE OF HIS
KINGDOM OVER ISRAEL FOR EVER.

Every day a new quotation translated into many languages.
Quotation of the day:
Author - Joey Adams
English - a psychiatrist is a fellow
who asks you a lot of expensive
questions your wife asks for nothing
I have told my father about your research (he is 88 and totally committed
to the State of Israel) As a student of prophecy for most of his adult life
he supports the fact that the land belongs to Israel from the beginning and
totally agrees that there is no such thing as a Palestinian....in fact he
says the people who are now called palestians are descendents of the
Philistines. He now believes that our family on his mother's side are
jewish descendents but changed their name from Eli to Ely. His uncles have
names like Arben, Roscoe, ...his grandfather my great grandfather's name
was Isaac. Uncle Arben became a member of the British Israelites over 40
years ago...and that is what led me to find you when I typed in British
Israelites into a search engine. I am attempting to do some ancestral
research for our family and that was how I found you.
"And I will make of you a great nation.
And I will bless you and make your
