From Solomon to David: The ongoing purpose of God

The throne is handed on to Solomon by David. This is seen as part of the ongoing purpose of God: “Praise the Lord God of Israel who has let me see the heir to my throne” (1 Kings 1:48). The kingship was given to Solomon by “the Lord” (1 Kings 2:15) – “The Lord set me on my father David’s throne … As He promised” (1 Kings 2:24). When we read the history of the kings of Israel, it is important that we do not lose sight of this spiritual dimension. This is more than the story of men. It’s the story of God’s dealings with His people.

  1. Thanks, LightWriters, Kristi Ann, Beholding Him Ministries, Eileen, Mrs Holliman, Saania, Child of God, Stella, C F and Ryan, From a spark to a flame and Golu, for liking these notes. God bless each of you.

  2. The ongoing purpose of God concerning the passing of the torch from David to Solomon is never more explicit as it is in Psalm 89. David’s reign may have come to an end—but God’s covenant towards him did not. Blessings and Peace!
