The Son Of David

In the Book of Acts chapter 13, Paul spoke by THE SPIRIT:

22 And when HE (Our Heavenly Father) had removed him (Saul), He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after My own heart, who will do all My will.’

23 From this man’s seed, according to the promise, God raised up for Israel a Savior—Jesus.

There are multiple references proclaiming David to be a “type and shadow” of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  We know that Jesus fulfilled all of FATHER’S Divine Intent and will, more so than David could have in his time.  There is only one Savior for mankind and no other person could or should be exalted in the eyes of the believers.  Given this reality, the following should further provide those with ears to hear and eyes to see, a greater perspective of a little known fact concerning David.  What is the name of David’s mother?  My beloved close friend sent this exhaustive research to me:

Looking at David’s lineage we find that David’s father, Jesse:

Begat his firstborn Eliab, and Abinadab the second, and Shimma the third, Nethaneel the fourth, Raddai the fifth, Ozem the sixth, David the seventh: Whose sisters were Zeruiah, and Abigail. And the sons of Zeruiah; Abishai, and Joab, and Asahel, three. And Abigail bare Amasa: and the father of Amasa was Jether the Ishmeelite.

Notice if you will it says Zeruiah and Abigail were David’s sisters and not Jesse’s daughters.

Now continuing on Scripture has told us that Amasa was Abigail’s son and that after David was ousted by Absalom that: 

Absalom made Amasa captain of the host instead of Joab: which Amasa was a man’s son, whose name was Ithra an Israelite, that went in to Abigail the daughter of Nahash, sister to Zeruiah Joab’s mother.

From this Scripture we can now confirm that both Abigail and Zeruiah were daughters of Nahash, not daughters of Jesse.  They are David’s sisters with the same mother as David but a different father named Nahash.  We also learn that both Amasa and Joab are sons of Abigail and Zeruiah and are therefore first cousins of David.  However, David’s sisters, Abigail and Zeruiah have to be older than David since Joab was David’s general and Amasa was Absalom’s general which would put them in roughly the same age group as David making his sisters older than David.

Now it becomes even more interesting since once again from Scripture we learn that Nahash was the king of the children of Ammon.

So … we are led to believe that David’s sisters Abigail and Zeruiah are daughters of Nahash the Ammonite king and David’s mother, prior to her involvement with Jesse was the wife or concubine of Nahash,the king of the Ammonites.

Therefore it would stand to reason that David’s brothers, all sons of Jesse had a different mother which would explain why David’s brothers mistreated him and why Jesse left him in the field when Samuel came to do the anointing.  It would also explain why David tells us in Psalm 51 that

Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me. I think we can conclude from this Scripture that David’s mother was not legally married to Jesse when David was conceived.  This is pure supposition on my part but if David was shapen in iniquity and was conceived in sin it would appear that Jesse and his mother were not legally married at the time of conception.   It is also quite probable that besides his sisters Abigail and Zeruiah that David also  has half Ammonite brothers since Scripture tells us that David has  become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.  Notice David only ascribes the sin to his mother and it’s only his mother’s children who consider him an alien. We also never anywhere in Scripture discover David’s mother’s name.  It’s rather conspicuous by its absence. 

We also know that Nahash was still alive after David became king since Scripture tells us that:   Now it came to pass after this, that Nahash the king of the children of Ammon died, and his son reigned in his stead.  And David said, I will shew kindness unto Hanun the son of Nahash, because his father shewed kindness to me.  And David sent messengers to comfort him concerning his father. So the servants of David came into the land of the children of Ammon to Hanun, to comfort him.

Obviously David has an affinity for Nahash however Scripture does not provide us with a reason for David’s affinity other than Nahash’s wife and/or concubine eventually becoming David’s mother.  It’s all very intriguing.  Scripture leaves a multitude of questions unanswered regarding David and his lineage, more specifically on his mother’s side.

Being a type and shadow of Our Lord Jesus Christ, David’s mother was not to be exalted in any manner thus she is left unnamed.  Doesn’t this infer that the mother of Jesus not be exalted as well?  Jesus’ lineage, on one hand, was well documented yet then He was described by FATHER in Hebrews chapter 5 as being of the everlasting order of Melchizedek who had no known earthly lineage and supersedes the order of Aaron.  With this in mind, Mystery Babylon has exalted Mary in an attempt to dilute the everlasting and create an idol for the people to exalt in place of Christ.  Only one Person went to the cross for you and me.  Think about it.
