"Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou Son of David." Christ is called the "Son of David" by the Old Testament believers for a reason and often those recognizing Jesus as that Christ, when he ministered physically on earth, would call upon him for mercy. One of the main reasons for this was because of the teaching here in Psalm 89. God had given Israel King David and His Spiritual House as a picture of the one day true King "the Holy One of Israel" that would come, granting both Spiritual and Physical mercy through His Spiritual Tabernacle, the NT Church. Psalm 89 taught them that David's descendant would be the "Holy One of Israel" and that God's covenant with King David would mirror God's covenant with those who believed on Christ, the Son of God.
In Part 3 of this 4 part message on Psalm 89 we show how God gave David and his house as a picture of His Spiritual Covenant of Mercy that was available for all to enter into by faith in Christ. We also show how, once received, this covenant could not be broken by later unfaithfulness by the receiver. Just as the covenant was secure with David and Christ, so it would be with all those who received it.
