We come now to the man, King David, the Apostolic Type of the Five Fold Hip-Hop Ministry. He is the Lord’s SWEET Psalmists and the Scriptures say!
I know many of you are like, “It’s about Christ son! Why you talking so much about King David for? He cheated on his wife, committed adultery, murdered a man, and was a bad dad!”
Let me tell you why. Jesus is the Ultimate Apostolic Type who is a fulfillment and greater glory of the Root and Offspring of David!
Jesus was more than that. In Revelation 22:16 He says this:
“I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”
He was the root and the offspring of David. What was one of the most common titles that Jesus was known by as He walked the earth?
“Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus came as a David. He came to restore the Throne of David, and they thought He was going to kick Herod out and take over. They missed it again! They were thinking in natural terms. He was coming to show them how they could rule and reign in life through His power. He was coming as a new SPIRITUAL David. He was coming to be the ante-type, but they were still living in the type and the shadow of the Old Covenant.
Jesus did not fulfill the sacrificed sin offering only. Jesus was not merely one offering, but the many offerings, burnt offerings, the meat offering, the peace offerings, the trespass offering, and the sin offering. Jesus also prefigured the priest doing the offering, the meaning of each offering, the compartments and furniture of the tabernacle, the bread, the candles, the curtain, the ark of the covenant, the tabernacle itself, Jesus was Joseph, Adam, Moses, Joshua, King David, King Solomon and the whole nation of Israel—Jesus prefigures all and FULFILLED ALL.
No one could comprehend every verse in the Old Testament Scriptures that represented Jesus, but they could learn the PRINCIPLE by which Jesus fulfilled all the law and all the prophets. And that is how the apostles and the two disciples on the road to Emmaus had their understanding of the Scriptures opened in just a very short time. When the Scriptures speak of Israel they speak of Jesus, and when they speak of Jesus they speak of us, for “… as Jesus [the Head] is, so are we [His Body] in the world.” (1st John 4:17). So as Jesus was an apostle, king, and a David; SO ARE WE the fulfillment and reality of the types and shadows!
And that is the simple explanation of this marvelous truth. The Scriptures speak of far more than just the prophesies of Jesus coming as the Messiah.
David’s job was to rout (to defeat overwhelmingly) the enemies. Jesus came to rout the enemies, to give them victory over Satan and his hordes, and they thought the Romans were their enemy and Jesus was going to drive them out.
Can you remember even after His resurrection before He ascended and He sat down, He was now going to explain to His disciples the wonders of what He had accomplished on Calvary?
They turned to Him and said,
“Lord, are you at this time going to restore the Kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6).
They just didn’t get it did they? He was coming to be the anti-type (one that is foreshadowed by or identified with an earlier symbol or type, such as a figure in the New Testament who has a counterpart in the Old Testament) of David, not just be another King David. He was coming to be something far greater than what David was originally. What did David do for the Israelites? He restored the presence of God, with an emphasis on music as part of the process. He brought the Ark back and put it in a tent and gave them access so that God’s presence could dwell amongst them.
We are all in Adam. We do all that Adam did. We believe in the Spirit what Israel lived in the flesh. All Israel was baptized in the Red Sea. We are all baptized into Christ’s death. And now the last Adam (Christ) lives His life in us (Gal. 2:20), but not until we repent of the first Adam of the flesh living his life in us.
