Consider the following truths from Scripture:
1. Jesus, the Davidic king
Luk 1:30And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Mat 2:1 ¶ Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, 2 ¶ Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Joh 19:19And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was, JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
2. Christ, the King
Psa 2:2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed . . .
2:6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.
3. Jesus Christ, the God-Resurrected Davidic King
Act 2:29 ¶ Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. 30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
4. Christ Raised by the Glory of the Father
Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Based on these four scriptural truths, let us on this Easter especially glorify our Heavenly Father for His raising Jesus, His chosen Davidic King, from the dead!
