Jesus never reigned on David's throne even one day of his life, let alone "forever."
Yet another false prophecy.
Claims are easy to make, but the fact is that Jesus was never a king. To claim that he was a king, or that he is “king in heaven” is again easy to claim – but “where is the proof”? We know for a fact that Jesus was never given the throne of David while he lived.
IF Jesus were son of the most high he could not have been the messiah. Quite simply the Hebrew word מָשִֽׁיחַ (moshiach) -- or "messiah" in English translates to "anointed one."
The noun מָשִֽׁיחַ (moshiach aka anointed one), in English "messiah" occurs 39 times in the T'nach. Thirty-four are nouns and the remaining five are adjectives.
Additionally there are other closely related words, such as מִשְׁחָה mish'ḥah (“anointment”) which occurs, for example, in the expression שֶֽׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת קֹֽדֶשׁ shĕmĕn mish'ḥat kōdĕsh (“anointment-of-holiness oil”)— this term is found twice in Sh'mot / Exodus 30:25 and again in Sh'mot / Exodus 30:31. שֶֽׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת קֹֽדֶשׁ shĕmĕn mish'ḥat kōdĕsh (“anointment-of-holiness oil”) is a special type of anointment with a particular oil for kings -- and this was never done with Jesus. Jesus was never a moshiach (messiah) -- and he did not have the "birth right" to be a rightful king of the Jews.
The Hebrew word is inseparable with the concept of the special oil in my last paragraph. This was a special mixture of spice and olive oil that was used for “anointing” of kings and priests. It is called שֶֽׁמֶן מִשְׁחַת קֹדֶשׁ shemen mish'ḥat kodesh (“Oil of Anointment of Sanctity”) in the passage of Sh'mot / Exodus 30:22-33 which gives the formula for making it and how to properly use it. . .
"G-d spoke to Moses, saying: 30:23 You must take the finest fragrances, 500 [shekels] of distilled myrrh, [two] half portions, each consisting of 250 [shekels] of fragrant cinnamon and 250 [shekels] of fragrant cane, 30:24 and 500 shekels of cassia, all measured by the sanctuary standard, along with a gallon of olive oil. 30:25 Make it into sacred anointing oil. It shall be a blended compound, as made by a skilled perfumer, [made especially for] the sacred anointing oil. 30:26 Then use it to anoint the Communion Tent, the Ark of Testimony, 30:27 the table and all its utensils, the menorah and its utensils, the incense altar, 30:28 the sacrificial altar and all its utensils, the washstand and its base. 30:29 You will thus sanctify them, making them holy of holies, so that anything touching them becomes sanctified. 30:30 You must also anoint Aaron and his sons, sanctifying them as priests to Me. 30:31 Speak to the Israelites and tell them, 'This shall be the sacred anointing oil to Me for all generations. 30:32 Do not pour it on the skin of any [unauthorized] person, and do not duplicate it with a similar formula. It is holy, and it must remain sacred to you. 30:33 If a person blends a similar formula, or places it on an unauthorized person, he shall be cut off [spiritually] from his people." Sh'mot / Exodus 30:22-33.
Thus Saul, David and Solomon were all messiahs -- anointed kings.
And just as clearly Jesus never was.
Jesus was never anointed with this special formula -- and whether one claims that he was "anointed" by the "holy spirit" or by "an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume" (Matthew 26:6, Mark 14:3, Luke 7:36) or "a pint of pure nard, an expensive perfume" (John 12:1) none of those anoint the rightful Kings of the Jews. Only the special sacred anointing oil mentioned in Sh'mot / Exodus 30:22-33 can be used. "Do not pour it (the sacred anointing oil) on the skin of any [unauthorized] person, and do not duplicate it with a similar formula. It is holy, and it must remain sacred to you. 30:33 If a person blends a similar formula, or places it on an unauthorized person, he shall be cut off [spiritually] from his people."
Claims are easy to make -- by the authors of the Christian bible and the list maker, but clearly Jesus did not fulfill the prophecies of Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13.
You notice the “a” after 13 in the claim (Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13)? The list maker is hoping yet again that you won’t read ALL of line 13, for it clearly shows that the passage is speaking of Solomon, King David’s son and successor, and not Jesus.
“He will build Me a house, and I shall establish his throne forever. I shall be to him as a father, and he will be to Me as a son, and I shall not remove My loving-kindness from him as I removed [it] from he who was before you.” Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13.
Interesting that the list maker includes line 12 since Jesus did NOT build G-d a house. The Second Temple (G-d’s house) had existed since 349 BCE and it existed until 68 CE – a good 40 years after Jesus’ supposed death. Some missionaries will say that Jesus himself was the “temple”, but the bible is speaking of an actual building.
And Solomon built the first Temple as G-d had said he would "build" (not "be") a "house" (Temple) in Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13.
Once again the list maker eliminates line 11 of this passage: “And it will come to pass when your days (David) are finished to go with your forefathers, then I (G-d) shall raise up your seed after you, who will be of your sons, and I shall establish his kingdom.” Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:11.
Some missionaries will say “this has to be Jesus because G-d says “I shall establish his throne forever” and Solomon’s throne did not exist forever.”
You need to tell those missionaries to skip ahead to chapter 22.
G-d is again speaking to David and He says “Behold a son will be born to you; he will be a man of peace, and I shall give him peace from all his enemies around about, for Solomon will be his name, and I shall give peace and quiet to Israel in his days. He shall build a House in My Name, and he shall be to Me as a son, and I to him as a Father, and I shall prepare the throne of his kingdom forever.'” Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 22:9-10.
The message of Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:11-12 is repeated in Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 22:9-10 and this time Solomon is given by name. The information is the same:
Luke 1:32-33 (the proof text given to “prove” that Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13 was fulfilled by Jesus does the opposite. It says “He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The L-rd G-d will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
Jesus was never a king – he never had a throne (let alone the throne of David). During his life the Romans were in charge. There had been no Davidic king for 600 years prior to Jesus’ birth. He never reigned over “Jacob’s descendants” (the Jews) – and indeed we Jews still reject him. He never had a kingdom and his life ended over 2000 years ago.
Add to that the fact that Royal lineage proceeds from the father. According to the Christian Scriptures Jesus was not from the line of David, so Jesus failed to “fulfill” Luke 1:32-33 as well as Divrei Hayamim Alef / I Chronicles 17:12-13.
