King David was a poet prophet, a king, a courageous and brilliant military man. But David was also a musician and a composer. He wrote poetry (psalms) that are usually sung. When we read his psalms we can find that he prophesied about the Messiah and many prophecies through David and others (related confirmations) have already come true, in Jesus Christ (Messiah): Psalm 22:16-18; Psalm 2:7-9; Acts 13:33; Psalm 2:9; Revelation 2:27; Hebrews 2:8; Psalm 16:10; Acts 2:27; Psalm 22:16-18; John 19:25; Psalm 22:1; Psalm 41:9; John 13:18; Psalm 69:9; John 2:15-17; Psalm 69:21; Matthew 27:48; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; Psalm 110:4; Hebrews 7:17; Psalm 118:22; Matthew 21:42; Psalm 118:26; Matthew 21:9;
Psalm 110 New King James Version (NKJV)
Announcement of the Messiah’s Reign
A Psalm of David.
110 The Lord said to my Lord,
“Sit at My right hand,
Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”
2 The Lord shall send the rod of Your strength out of Zion.
Rule in the midst of Your enemies!
3 Your people shall be volunteers
In the day of Your power;
In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning,
You have the dew of Your youth.
4 The Lord has sworn
And will not relent,
“You are a priest forever
According to the order of Melchizedek.”
5 The Lord is at Your right hand;
He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath.
6 He shall judge among the nations,
He shall fill the places with dead bodies,
He shall execute the heads of many countries.
7 He shall drink of the brook by the wayside;
Therefore He shall lift up the head.
