[CF Devotionals] 2004-04-10 - Identified through David

The Jesus the Carpenter - His Address Series, Part 7

Hello Friends,

Last week we saw God narrow the identifying address of Jesus down to the tribe of Judah.

Today will see God continue to narrow the address down specifically to identify Jesus the Carpenter

According to 1 Samuel, within the tribe Judah, the line of Jessie is chosen. Jesse had eight sons. And now God eliminates seven eighths of the family line of Jessie, when he chooses the house of David to be the line of Jesus.

The Lord Sends Samuel to Jesse

1 Samuel (16:1, 11-13), NIV

1 Samuel 16:1 The LORD said to Samuel, "How long will you mourn for Saul, since I have rejected him as king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and be on your way; I am sending you to Jesse of Bethlehem. I have chosen one of his sons to be king." (NIV)

The Lord Tells Samuel to Anoint David.

1 Samuel 16:11-13 So he asked Jesse, "Are these all the sons you have?" "There is still the youngest," Jesse answered, "but he is tending the sheep." Samuel said, "Send for him; we will not sit down until he arrives." 12 So he sent and had him brought in. He was ruddy, with a fine appearance and handsome features. Then the LORD said, "Rise and anoint him; he is the one." 13 So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on, the Spirit of the LORD came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah. (NIV)

We See David as Jesse's Son, in the Genealogy of Jesus

Matthew 1:4-6 Ram the father of Amminadab, Amminadab the father of Nahshon, Nahshon the father of Salmon, 5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab, Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth, Obed the father of Jesse, 6 and Jesse the father of King David. David was the father of Solomon, whose mother had been Uriah's wife." (NIV)

We will continue with another prophecy next time, as we continue to identify the address of Jesus the Carpenter.

May God bless you my friends.

In Christ,
