The Key of David

By Warder Cresson (Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham).

Appendix B.

The Fifth Monarchy of the "Stone."

Whether we have been rejecting that Stone mentioned in the 118. Psa. 22d. v., and in the 2d. chapter of Dan. 34th v., as follows:

"The Stone which the builders refused is become the Head Stone of the corner."

"Thou sawest till that a Stone was cut out without hands, which smote the Image upon his Feet, that were of iron and clay, and broke them to pieces."

"In the name of the Lord will I (not Him) destroy them." Christians say, that Jesus is the one (the "Stone") that will do this; and consequently he therefore is the Him, and all know that the Image was not down to the feet 1800 years ago. I say that it is David himself, that is the "Stone," that will do this, and consequently he therefore is the I, and hence he speaks of himself in the first person throughout the whole of the 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20 and 21st verses of the 118 Psalm; and this is the self-evident reason that the next verse relating to the "Stone" must mean and apply only and alone to David, because the day spoken of, and all the circumstances mentioned in the 118. Psalm, are yet future, and therefore the following verse is expressed in the past tense, thus, "The Stone which the builders refused, is become the Head Stone of the corner."

The "Builders" are the Christian Church Builders, who have, during the whole period of more than 1800 years, refused the Head Stone, David, who is the "Messiah," "King," "Priest," and "Prophet" of the God of Jacob; and this is the reason that he ever speaks of Himself* in the first person in the 118. Psalm, and not of another in the second person; and this is the reason why Christians cannot speak and say that "David means Jesus," and "was a type of Jesus," and hence they cannot take all the promises spoken of, and to, David in the first person, and apply them to Jesus in the second person; and it is in this way that they attempt to rob David of his Identity, and consequently of his Person, Name, Character, and Office, and of all the Promises and Blessings of God guaranteed by the "holiness" of his Oath.

* And therefore David says in this cxviii. Psa. 10, 11, and 12, that "in the name of the Lord will I destroy them," and not in the name of Jesus shall he (Jesus) destroy them, but "in the name of the Lord will I destroy them."

"Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David."

"His Seed shall endure forever, and his Throne as the Sun before me."

"It shall be established forever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven. Selah." Psalm 89:35, 36, and 37th verses.
