THE ROYAL RIGHT TO THE THRONE

January 1

Matthew 1:11 Here in the middle of this family line, this kingly line, this royal right to the throne is a king born by the name of Jeconiah.  Jeconiah was an evil man, also called Coniah.  And in Jeremiah’s prophecy chapter 22:30, the Word of the Lord says this about Jeconiah, “Write this man childless,”.  God said no son of Jeconiah will ever be on the throne of David.  And yet, Jeconiah is in the Messianic line.  How then can Jesus be the King if He does not come through the royal line of Jeconiah?  And how can He be the King if the line of Jeconiah is cursed?  That seemingly hopeless problem is resolved in the virgin birth.  Through that line Jesus received the legal right to the throne, but He was no blood child of Jeconiah for that line was cursed and there could never be a child of Jeconiah on the throne of David.  Praise the Lord for how He did the impossible and brought us a Savior to die in our place and make it possible to be saved.

Matthew 1:11 says, “And to Josiah were born Jeconiah and his brothers at the time of the deportation to Babylon
