Msg #1717 A Precious Type of Christ

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

The Holy Bible, from Genesis to maps, is about our Lord Jesus Christ, but there is a name recorded more than his in its pages. That name comes second to his in the New Testament's beginning and second to his in its ending. God chose a shepherd boy, “a man after God's own heart”, and anointed him to be King of Israel. Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God, is God's Anointed One (Hebrew - Messiah, Greek – Christ). In believing that, the Apostle John affirms, “you may have life through his name” (John20:31). So David is the Bible's most recorded “type” of Christ. King Saul's great beginning, ongoing struggle to destroy David, and keeping him from the kingdom typifies Satan's struggle against Christ. God giving David the heathen for his inheritance, and the uttermost for his possession is exactly what David records as upcoming for Christ in his second Psalm. Even David being deposed and driven from Jerusalem, and later reinstated as king is a depiction of our present distress. Bible believers know that Christ will soon come back to Jerusalem as King of kings, and Lord of lords. As much as David typifies Christ, he typifies man. His adultery and first degree murder cap the truth that “There is none righteous, no not one... For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:10.23). With deep insight David wrote “The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.... The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise” (Psalm 34:18, 51:17). The life of David is worth another look. One can learn of Christ; one can learn of his own vile nature.
