The LORD (God) said to David, “I will raise up your heir after you, sprung from your loins, and I will make his Kingdom firm. It is he who shall build a house for my name. And I will make his royal throne firm forever. I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me.” 2_Sm_7:4-17
David’s son Solomon did build a magnificent house for his LORD, but this Temple was not the eternal kingdom God spoke of. And neither was Solomon the eternal king, who eventually fell away from God and into sin. For it was centuries later that David’s heir to the eternal throne that God spoke of, would be born. And the “house” that Jesus would build was us, beloved. We are the living stones of the Eternal Temple! And we would carry His Name from one generation to the next. And God would be His Father and we would be His children, living with His Spirit in our hearts. Living in His Love!
