Green Olive Tree: David

Olive tree in Gethsemane, JerusalemBut I am like a green olive tree
in the house of God.
I trust in the steadfast love of God

forever and ever.

Psalm 52:8, King David (ESV)

 

The LORD once called you

'a green olive tree, beautiful with good fruit.'

Jeremiah 11:16a

 

his shoots shall spread out;

his beauty shall be like the olive,

Hosea 14:6a

 

The Olive tree is known for the freshness of its ever green leaves. The strength of its roots that can even penetrate rocks. Its longevity, for the tree lives longer than other fruit trees. Its ability to survive in environment with salty ground water.

The Olive is a symbol for:
- pureness
- peace and wisdom
- power and glory
- fertility and long life

And hope,
10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. 11 When the d o v e returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked  o l i v e  leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth.
Genesis 8:10-11 (NIV)


Which king said he was like a green olive tree in the house of God? And, whom did God the Almighty Father promise, that he would always have a lamp - which burns by means of olive oil - in Jerusalem?

Nevertheless, because of the covenant the LORD had made with David, the LORD was not willing to destroy the  h o u s e  of David. He had promised to maintain a l a m p for him and his descendants forever.
1 Kings 11:36

Nevertheless, for the sake of his servant David, the LORD was not willing to destroy  J u d a h. He had promised to maintain a l a m p for David and his descendants forever.
2 Kings 8:19

I will give one tribe to his son so that David my servant may always have a lamp before me in J e r u s a l e m, the city where I chose to put my Name.
1 Kings 11:36

He promised King David!


Which Royal-line has been established by God for ever?

16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.’”
2 Samuel 7:16
(NIV)

... 3 You said, “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant,
4 ‘I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations.’” ,,,

16 Your house and your kingdom will endure forever before me; your throne will be established forever.’”

... 35 Once for all, I have sworn by my holiness—and I will not lie to David—
36 that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun;
37 it will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky.” ...
Psalm 89 (NIV)

3 “Listen now, my people, and come to me; come to me, and you will have life!
I will make a lasting covenant with you and give you the blessings I promised to David.
4 I made him a leader and commander of nations, and through him I showed them my power.

Isaiah 55:3-4 (GNT)

And King David's palace?
18 ... Jerusalem will be rebuilt, and its PALACE restored. Jeremiah 30:18 (GNT)

The Almighty God has given his people King David! to last!


God bless you,
