Where is Israel’s King David?

King David: he was the only ruler in the history of Israel that brought unity within Israel. Established Jerusalem as Israel’s undivided capital city and brought peace to Israel’s boarders. He was chosen and anointed by God almighty.

God who later promised that when the Israelites return to Israel, he would give them rulers that would rule Israel with wisdom and understanding. It is written in Jeremiah 3:15, 16. Notice that it also says that there would be no covenant box in those days, our days. I believe God has been keeping this promise the Israelites to this day. So in time, what is written in Ezekiel 38 verse 11 to 12 will be a reality in the land of Israel. People will be living in peace and security in not walled towns and in cities that were once ruins. They have been gathered from the nations, and now they have livestock and property and live at the crossroads of the world.

Churchill? Who is that?
The Balfour Declaration of 1917 provided for a national home land for the Jewish people, Israelites. Wasn’t Churchill the Secretary of State for the British Colonies who wrote the White Paper of 1922? Wasn’t he the Prime Minister, whose government refused the Jewish people access to Israel, even when they were abused and murdered before and at the time of World War II? The British were not unique in what they were doing to the Jewish people. Let’s not start about the Vatican State and the Pope. A lot can be said about all this.

I say: follow the example of Joseph. He forgave (not trusted) those who hurt him regardless whether they asked him for forgiveness. He took this step in faith. We can read his story in the book of Genesis chapter 37 to 50. Joseph was also motivated by his love for his father Jacob and his brother Benjamin.

What would motivate the Israelites to forgive all those who have been hurting them?

Do those people deserve forgiveness? No (But then who does?).

Is it difficult to forgive them? Yes (Extremely difficult.).

Is it impossible? No.

Is it necessary? Yes.

Why? So God can turn evil into good.

Joseph’s words as written in Genesis 50 verse 19 and 20:
I can’t put myself in the place of God. You plotted evil against me, but God turned it into good, in order to preserve the lives of many people who are alive today because of what happened.

Where is King David? I believe on his way to Israel.

    Thank you Mrs. vd Laan-Leito, for this wonderful blog. I do believe King David is on his way to Israel!

  2. What a paradox! A warrior-king brings in peace! And because many of God’s prophecies have a least two levels of interpretation, it may very well be that a next warrior-king would bring in peace. he descends from David and was called (and will be called again) the Son of David. His first war was against the sin and the ha-Satan, and he got the victory. His second war will be against those who hate Israel and will bring to fulfilment His initial victory against ha-Satan.
    Another train of thoughts: studying the genealogy of Yeshua, and His ascendents to David, the king, and to Abraham, was extremely blessing for our church. It took us three lessons, indeed, but at the end, all of us were enriched and stronger in our convictions regarding the fact that indeed, David was to ever have a son (descendent) on his throne. What was a head-ache for many theologians, I mean Jesus’ genealogies, turned out to be very rewarding for us. Find time to study them, they are not abrupt, dry and sterile, but wonderful. Baruch ha-Ba, Blessed is He who comes!…

    It is important to remember that Jesus knew and stated that he was not the Messiah of Jewish expectation (Urantia Book). ‘My Kingdom is not of this world.’
