Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end” (Luke 1:30-33).
The Lord Jesus reigns supreme and is the rightful heir of the throne of David: of His kingdom and government there shall be no end. Every covenantal promise ever given, in any age or dispensation, finds its ultimate fulfillment in Him. (Eph. 1:10; Heb. 1:2.) He is the promised Seed given to Abraham. (Gal. 3:16.) He is the “heir of all things.” (4:13; Heb. 1:2.) But it is also told that He will have a joint-heir, a “seed,” or children of His own.
And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them? I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth? (Luke 18:7-8).
I used to believe this passage of scripture was metaphorical. I do not believe this any longer in light of the realization of 24/7 houses of prayer arising all across the globe. The restoration of the spirit of the Tabernacle of David (Acts 15:15-17; Amos 9:11-13) is literally being fulfilled in this generation. Multi-generational companies of Christians are arising in many cities. They yearn to see the vision, burden and calling of what is taking place around the throne of God (Rev. 4&5) established on earth as happened in King David’s day. (1 Chron. 16.) A place for the glory of the Lord is being prepared in many geographic locations as the bride of Christ enters into the fullness of her priestly ministry and identity. Once the priestly identity and ministry of the bride is restored, then the anointing of the Head will begin to flow over the entire body. (Psalm 133:1-3.)
