“Glory to the Precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
Psalms 13: 5
But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.
May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
The throne of Christ (grace) should abide in us, the bride, the church.
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, in the portion of the Bible that we meditated upon in the past days, we meditated that our deeds, the bride, the church, should be as those for the Lord who came from heaven.
Next what we are meditating upon is that 1 Chronicles 2: 13 - 15 Jesse begot Eliab his firstborn, Abinadab the second, Shimea the third,
Nethanel the fourth, Raddai the fifth,
Ozem the sixth, and David the seventh.
In the above-mentioned verses, among the sons of Jesse, David was the seventh and their sisters were Zeruiah and Abigail. And the sons of Zeruiah were Abishai, Joab, and Asahel—three. Abigail bore Amasa; and the father of Amasa was Jether the Ishmaelite. Now these were the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron: 1 Chronicles 3: 1 – 4 Now these were the sons of David who were born to him in Hebron: The firstborn was Amnon, by Ahinoam the Jezreelitess; the second, Daniel, by Abigail the Carmelitess;
the third, Absalom the son of Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, king of Geshur; the fourth, Adonijah the son of Haggith;
the fifth, Shephatiah, by Abital; the sixth, Ithream, by his wife Eglah.
These six were born to him in Hebron. There he reigned seven years and six months, and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty-three years.
Also, those who were born to David in Jerusalem in 1 Chronicles 3: 5 – 9 And these were born to him in Jerusalem: Shimea, Shobab, Nathan, and Solomon—four by Bathshua the daughter of Ammiel.
Also there were Ibhar, Elishama, Eliphelet,
Nogah, Nepheg, Japhia,
Elishama, Eliada, and Eliphelet—nine in all.
These were all the sons of David, besides the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister.
The above-mentioned nine people were born in Jerusalem. These were all the sons of David, besides the sons of the concubines, and Tamar their sister. Also, in 1 Chronicles 3: 10 – 24 Solomon’s son was Rehoboam; Abijah was his son, Asa his son, Jehoshaphat his son,
Joram his son, Ahaziah his son, Joash his son,
Amaziah his son, Azariah his son, Jotham his son,
Ahaz his son, Hezekiah his son, Manasseh his son,
Amon his son, and Josiah his son.
The sons of Josiah were Johanan the firstborn, the second Jehoiakim, the third Zedekiah, and the fourth Shallum.
The sons of Jehoiakim were Jeconiah his son and Zedekiah his son.
And the sons of Jeconiah were Assir, Shealtiel his son,
and Malchiram, Pedaiah, Shenazzar, Jecamiah, Hoshama, and Nedabiah.
The sons of Pedaiah were Zerubbabel and Shimei. The sons of Zerubbabel were Meshullam, Hananiah, Shelomith their sister,
and Hashubah, Ohel, Berechiah, Hasadiah, and Jushab-Hesed—five in all.
The sons of Hananiah were Pelatiah and Jeshaiah, the sons of Rephaiah, the sons of Arnan, the sons of Obadiah, and the sons of Shechaniah.
The son of Shechaniah was Shemaiah. The sons of Shemaiah were Hattush, Igal, Bariah, Neariah, and Shaphat—six in all.
The sons of Neariah were Elioenai, Hezekiah, and Azrikam—three in all.
The sons of Elioenai were Hodaviah, Eliashib, Pelaiah, Akkub, Johanan, Delaiah, and Anani—seven in all.
From Solomon their generations have been written.
The above-mentioned have been written as a pattern for us. That is, among these the important people are being made in the position of a king. This is our spiritual life and from that if we do that which is good then our soul will be in fellowship with God and will grow and if we do that which is wicked to the Lord, then the kingdom will be plucked off from within us also the Lord will submit us into the hands of the enemy and our soul is being oppressed by the enemy and this is being shown as a pattern. Therefore, my dear people regarding this only in the book of kings we were meditating. Therefore if we do that which is right to the Lord then the throne of Christ will abide within us. If this must abide, then let us submit ourselves as those who fulfil the righteousness and justice of the Lord.
Let us pray. May the Lord bless you all abundantly.
