The Anointing of David - Veronese 1555
The Anointing of David – Veronese 1555

Who is the Prophetic David? Why do people mention King David and the Prophetic David?

In order to know about the prophetic David, we have to know David -the second king of Israel – first. After Saul, the first king of Israel, died, king David was anointed. And he became the second king of Israel. To know prophetic David, we need to know the true meaning of “anointed”.

예언적 다윗 메시아
Messiah – meaning of “Anointed one”. Biblical Christ.

According to ‘Bible study tools’, “Anointing expresses the sanctifying influences of the Holy Spirit upon Christians who are priests and kings unto God.” and “anointing of the king, by pouring oil upon his head at his coronation”. And God also expressed that David is a man after His own heart. In other words, king David’s anointing stands for Messiah’s coming.

David becoming the king of Israel stands for coming of Christ and His reign over His People. It means that David became the king of Israel not because he was brave and smart but because it was God’s prophecy. Why did God do so? He wanted to teach us what will be done with Christ through the physical David. So, Christ is prophetic David so we distinguish the prophetic David from the physical David. The reason why we should know him is to learn God’s will in him. Let’s think that if we eat pizza and don’t eat cheese part, it is so pitiful. Likewise, if you don’t recognize the prophetic David and don’t receive him, it is just useless though you diligently read the Bible.


Let’s find him through the Bible.


Prophetic David by the prophecy of Ezekiel

Ezekiel 37:24-27 “‘My servant David will be king over them, and they will all have one shepherd. They will follow my laws and be careful to keep my decrees.25 They will live in the land I gave to my servant Jacob, the land where your ancestors lived. They and their children and their children’s children will live there forever, and David my servant will be their prince forever. 26 I will make a covenant of peace with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever. 27 My dwelling place will be with them; I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Let’s see the book of Ezekiel. If Ezekiel was written before David’s birth, we can easily understand that the prophecy would be fulfilled by him. But the book of Ezekiel(about BC 565) was written for more than several hundred years after David(about BC 1000). So, we can easily understand that this prophecy would be fulfilled by the prophetic David – Christ. (Ref. As you know, Christ is our savior and He promised to be with us forever.


Prophetic David by the prophecy of Isaiah

Not only the book of Ezekiel but also the book of Isaiah was written about the relations between the physical David and the prophetic David.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.

Isaiah 9:6 is the most famous verse about Jesus Christ. In this verse, we can easily understand that prophetic David is Jesus Christ.

You can confirm this in the New Testament.

Luke 1:31-32 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. 32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

Indeed, we must recognize the prophetic David. Only when we accept Him and keep God’s commandment, we can receive His blessing to be God’s people.


Then who is the Prophetic David?

In the Book of Ezekiel, let’s see more verses to learn the connection between them.

Ezekiel 34:15 I myself will tend my sheep and have them lie down, declares the Sovereign Lord.

Ezekiel 34:23 I will place over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he will tend them; he will tend them and be their shepherd.

God said “I will tend my sheep”(it means “I am shepherd”). And later, one shepherd is David and he will tend His people.

Let’s find the meaning of these two verses :

Prophetic David
Prophetic David = Christ = God in flesh


To come as David means God’s coming in flesh

God said “I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Mat. 28:20). We understand that God is always with us. From the beginning, He is always with us in spirit state. Then why did He say that David(=Christ) would tend His people? It means that He is not in spirit state but in the flesh. Let’s confirm this.

Isaiah 9:6-7 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given,
    and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
    Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
    there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
    and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
    with justice and righteousness
    from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
    will accomplish this.

This is prophecy that God come to the Earth in the flesh. When God almighty come in the flesh (special condition), the Bible called the condition “David”.

Luke 1:31-32  You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus.32 He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David,

2000 years ago, He already came in the flesh. Then Is this prophecy over? No, we can find another David is coming.

Revelation 5:5 Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”

Jesus already went back to the Heaven and we thought that the prophecy was finished. But, as you know, Revelation is the book that is the prophecy after ascension of Jesus. So, we can understand that Jesus’ coming again in flesh.

City of David, near Jerusalem.

Where can we find David – the second coming Jesus? Where is he? If we don’t find him, we cannot meet God. Let’s find him!!

    “other sheep” means “God’s ppl” who are living in the last days.
    That’s the reason why prophet Hosea prophesied that God’s ppl must seek the king David “in the last days”

    “Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days…” -Hosea 3:5-
