When David was old and Adonijah his son proclaimed himself King, Nathan the Prophet rushed to Bathsheba and gave her wisdom to go in to the King and save her life and the life of her son Solomon – and David sware by the Lord that delivered him out of the hand of all his enemies, Our GOD, he would make Solomon KING.
In that day, he commanded Benaiah son of Jehoidah, Nathan the Prophet and Zadok the Priest to cause Solomon to ride on his own mule, take him to Gihon and anoint him KING. And Solomon sat on the Throne of His Father David at the tender age of 12.
Tell me, why did God choose Solomon over all the sons of David, not then but on the DAY He was born – remember right after Solomon was born the Bible says The LORD loved him and sent Nathan to give him the name Jedidiah. What might this mean to us today?
