David has decreed that Solomon will be his successor to the throne of Israel. But this was not just a dictate from the lips of David, it was the divine will of God Almighty. God was circumventing the normal succession plan, choosing to place Solomon on the throne rather than Adonijah, the next is line by virtue of age. Because God had a plan that was going to include a King like no other king Israel would ever have. This King would be a descendant of David, but His kingdom would last forever. And He would bring righteousness to Israel as no one else ever had or ever could. He would be the Messiah, the Savior of the world. The Son of Man and the Son of God. He would be Immanuel, which means, “God with us.” He would be the Lion of the Tribe of Judah and the King of kings and Lord of lords. David would appoint Solomon to be his successor, but God had already established Jesus to be the future King of Israel.
