Psalms 132:11 (KJV)
The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
That this passage reaches past David’s immediate line: Solomon, Rehoboam and etc., is clear from Acts 2:30 (KJV)

Clearly his family has reference as is obvious from Psalms 132: 12, but the promise is greater than royalty. The promise is eternal.
I want the very best for my children. I want to see them successful and happy. But what I long to see much more than that is to see them, their children, and their children’s children saved, serving the Lord and secure for all of eternity.
This is the promise of Psalms 132:11. It is not a promise of a lengthy monarchy. It is the promise of an eternity based upon One, Jesus Christ.
