Psalm 132 - God provides the Messiah

Psalm 132:1-2 "The Lord has sworn in truth to David; He will not turn from it: I will set upon your throne the fruit of your body. If your sons will keep My covenant and My testimony which I shall teach them, their sons also shall sit upon your throne forevermore." NKJV

We learn in verse 11 that the Lord has sworn the truth to David and will not repent of doing that. The second half of the verse explains what has been sworn by the Lord. Ashiyt can be translated in many ways, but all with the same overall thought; fix in position, appoint, place, or put. What or who is being appointed by a sworn action of the Lord? The fruit of David's innermost parts is appointed to the chair (or throne) of David. This is a huge Messianic prophesy.

An interesting thought is that if this were done today, we could not verify the appointee would be fruit of David. Only the tribe of Levi knows today what tribe they are from (notwithstanding what the Mormons might try to tell you). This is another reason to believe Yeshua is the Messiah.

Also worthy of note is that only the one tribe with no physical inheritance knows who they are (and that their only inheritance is to serve in the Temple, whether of the priesthood or of the levites. all were from the tribe of Levi. The house of Aaron (which made up the priesthood) was from the tribe of Levi.

Verse 12 also ends with the throne of David. This time the appointment is extended through promise to "your (David's) sons" who "Shomair" (protect or defend) the covenant and testimony of God. The promise of appointment is extended to those who believe in the one who is the fruit of David's loins. Welcome, family of God.
