Why A Day In David?

In a letter written by Joseph Smith, Joseph refers to a future time as "another day limited in David."

 

"Christ, in the days of His flesh, proposed to make a covenant with them [Israel], but they rejected Him and His proposals, and in consequence thereof, they were broken off, and no covenant was made with them at that time. But their unbelief has not rendered the promise of God of none effect: no, for there was another day limited in David, which was the day of His power; and then His people, Israel, should be a willing people;—and He would write His law in their hearts, and print it in their thoughts; their sins and their iniquities He would remember no more"

Smith Jr., Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith (p. 13), emphasis added. Deseret Book Company. Kindle Edition.

 

Israel spoken of in this passage is not a reference to the nation-state Israel, but as a name for those members of the family of God. It is a day of power, but not in a political, military sense. The kingdom of Christ is not of this world, but a heavenly kingdom. The other day "limited in David" is a time when people who are like minded with Christ have laws of God written in their hearts and printed in their thoughts. God forgives their sins and remembers their sins no more.

Joseph Smith foretold of a day when a descendant of David, by the name of David from his lineage would appear in this day:

 

"Although David was a king, he never did obtain the spirit and power of Elijah and the fullness of the Priesthood; and the Priesthood that he received, and the throne and kingdom of David is to be taken from him and given to another by the name of David in the last days, raised up out of his lineage"

Smith Jr., Joseph. Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith (p. 389), emphasis added. Deseret Book Company. Kindle Edition.

 

Joseph Smith foretold the "last days" arrival of a prophetic figure named after David from his lineage. An heir to ancient David's kingdom. In addition to receiving David's kingdom, the last days David accomplishes something the original David was unable to do. David of the last days obtains "the spirit and power of Elijah" and "the fullness of the Priesthood."

Two hundred years have passed since Joseph Smith walked this earth and the time has arrived for this prophecy's fulfillment. The scriptures allude to "signs of the times" God uses to identify when His prophecies are beginning to reach fulfillment. One of those signs became evident in 2017.

 

"This edition of scripture stands as a witness to the whole world; it is the sign that the moment has arrived when the things that have been prophesied of in scripture will now occur in a single generation. Mankind doesn’t have to accept the witness, they don’t even have to notice the witness; it’s only required that God send the witness. If He sends the witness, God has done His part. These scriptures are a new witness of Him and a sign of His invitation to renew communication with mankind"

(Foreword to the Restoration Edition of the Old Covenant Scriptures, v, 3rd paragraph, emphasis added).

 

For over forty-years I devoted significant time and effort to studying this subject. We are privileged to witness these prophecies fulfilled, beginning with the renewal of the work Joseph Smith laid the foundation for. It is my belief "another day in David" is here and this website intends to serve two purposes. One is to inform my family and friends of the evidence this prophetic time arrived and to instruct and prepare my grandchildren and all who give heed to the evidence.

 

I have written extensively on many subjects relating to these events and this blog is the vehicle for sharing this content. This is not a vanity project. I have no interest in promoting myself as anything other than a student. One in search of great and greater knowledge.
