Discussion for 1 Chronicles 17

    "MasterProhet" God does not lie. As believers we should think on these verses also. Titus 1:2 God cannot lie. Heb. 6:18 It is impossible for God to lie, he is immutable (unchanging) James 1:17 No shadow of turning. This is because he is HOLY, HOLY, HOLY REV 4:8. His promises are faithful and true. We serve a truly awesome God. I love reading all the different comments.

    Nathan speaking God's word to David refers to a seed of his sons, and the house he shall establish forever, yet I hear this preached as Solomon and the house he build which is not correct, consider these verses 11-14 and compare to Hebrews 1 verse 5.
    The seed from David in which Jesus came was through his son Nathan (probably named for the prophet).
  • I like this prayer. To put God in remberance of his word. He is faithful. Amen.

    David 's love for GOD is being shown here. He is determined to build HIM a house. His ungrudging immediacy in obeying HIS will is quite amazing in turning down his idea. HIS plan and timing are the best options.
