The Key of David

The Key of David (Excerpt)

By Warder Cresson (Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham). 1851

Now I have not only proved that David was the Messiah, by the only act that can constitute any one the Anointed, but I shall now prove, that he will be Israel’s King and Messiah at the Resurrection from the dead, as is declared in the 37th chap. of Ezekiel, and from many other places; and if so, who has any right to lay claim to David’s Identity, as the Messiah, when we are assured by God’s word and Holy Spirit, that he was a man after God’s own heart,” (1 Sam. 13:14,) and that “his heart was perfect with the Lord his God.” See 1 Kings 11:4. Most assuredly if this be true concerning David, he never transferred his Identity to any other person after him, as the Messiah of God, neither did he ever forfeit it.

In the 37th chap. of Ezek. above alluded to, the prophet, after describing the literal Resurrection of the whole house of Israel in the first five verses, goes on in the 6th and says, “And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.” In the 21st verse he says, “Thus saith the Lord God, Behold I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: And I will make them one nation in the land, upon the mountains of Israel; and one King shall be King to them all, and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two Kingdoms any more at all; and David my servant shall be King over them–(not the Nazarene, for particularly mark, there is to be but ONE “King over them all,) and they shall all have ONE shepherd; they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes and do them.”

In the 34th chap. of the same prophet, it is declared in the 22d., 23d and 24th verses, “Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. And I will set up One Shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David, he shall feed them, and he shall be their Shepherd. And I the Lord will be their God, and my servant David a prince among them; I the Lord have spoken it.” Is it possible for language to be more clear and definite in declaring that David is to be Israel’s King and Messiah in that day? This, however, is but a very small part of the Scripture testimony in favor of the coming in power of the Holy King, Priest, and Prophet, and Messiah of God, at the Resurrection from the dead.

In the 30th Chapter of Jeremiah, 7th, 8th and 9th verses, it expressly and most positively declares the time when God will raise up David unto them. “Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it, it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.”

“For it shall come to pass IN THAT DAY, saith the Lord of Hosts, that I will break his yoke from off thy neck, (compare this with Isaiah 9:4 and 6, for this is the time when ‘unto us a child is born,’) and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of him. But they shall serve the Lord their God, and David their King (not Jesus), whom I will raise up unto them.”

Hosea 3:4 and 5, confirms David, and not another being Israel’s King, for he says, “For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a King, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim (as is now the case), afterward shall the children of Israel return and seek the Lord their God, and David their King, (whom Jeremiah has just said “God would raise up to them,”) “and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days,” and not 1800 years ago.

Zech. 12:8, forever settles this most important question, and declares most clearly and plainly, that it is David: “In that day (when God ‘saves the tents of Judah first,’ see the verse before,) shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.”
