Mary, the Queen Mother of the Davidic King Who Reigns Forever

The Coronation of MaryJesus is of the line of King David, the fulfillment of God’s promise to King David: “When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come forth from your body, and I will establish his kingdom. He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom for ever.” (2 Samuel 7:12-13)  Christ Jesus is the promised Davidic King to reign forever.

Each of the Davidic Kings following King David reigned, not with his wife as Queen, but his mother.  To the right hand of the King sat the Queen Mother. The Queen mother had an influential role, as evidenced in King Solomon’s Court: “So Bathshe’ba went to King Solomon, to speak to him on behalf of Adoni’jah. And the king rose to meet her, and bowed down to her; then he sat on his throne, and had a seat brought for the king’s mother; and she sat on his right.  Then she said, ‘I have one small request to make of you; do not refuse me.’ And the king said to her, ‘Make your request, my mother; for I will not refuse you.’” (1 Kings 2:19-20)

Mary is the Queen mother that reigns at the right of the Davidic King, Christ Jesus, who reigns forever.  Christ Jesus honors His Queen mother, and should we.  Mary, His Queen intercedes on the behalf those who seek her assistance. The King does not refuse His Queen Mother’s requests.
