Either way, it’s a win – you either have him commit or you end up in someone else’s arms.
Much better than anxiously waiting by the phone, hoping he’ll come around one day. I’ve had the experience years ago where I was dating a girl and I wasn’t even all that into her at the beginning, but then when she started slipping away, something inside me made me obsess over it.
At this point, things are probably starting to get comfortable- you make plans regularly, you’re in contact more frequently, and a relationship seems just around the corner.
The fact was, at that time I identified with my relationship.
The way that the girl treated me meant something about me (in my mind).
Looking back on it, it wasn’t about my relationship with her – it was about the relationship I had with myself.
It was a hit to my self-image and ego and I got sucked into to chasing that part of myself I felt I had lost…
After the end of the Kingdom of Judah was there any memory what happened to King David’s descendants?
Is there any family today which can trace its lineage to David – and whom the Messiah might descend from? There is no question that King David’s descendants are alive today.
God promised David through Nathan the Prophet that the monarchy would never depart from his family (II Samuel ).
The prophets likewise foretell the ultimate coming of the Messiah, descendant of David, the “branch which will extend from the trunk of Jesse,” who will restore the Davidic dynasty and Israel’s sovereignty (Isaiah 11:1, see also Jeremiah , Ezekiel ).
He was blinded and his children were executed (II Kings 25:7).
However, Jehoiachin and his descendants did survive in exile.
