david talks about the expected prophet saying,  "a psalm of david. the lord said to my lord, sit at my right hand, until i make your enemies your footstool.  the lord sends forth from zion your mighty scepter. rule in the midst of your enemies.  your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments from the womb of the morning; the dew of your youth will be yours. the lord has sworn, and will not change his mind, “you are a priest forever after the order of melchizedek. the lord is at your right hand, he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.  he will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs over the wide earth." (psalms: 110/1-6).

the christians and the jews consider this passage as a prophecy of the expected messiah, who is from the offspring of david.

however, jesus (pbuh) canceled their claim, and he explained to his contemporaries that the expected messiah will not be from the offspring of david. in matthew: “now while the pharisees were gathered together, jesus asked them a question, saying, “what do you think about the christ? whose son is he?” they said to him, “the son of david.” he said to them, “how is then that david, in the spirit, call him lord, saying, “the lord said to my lord, sit at my right hand, until i put your enemies under your feet”?  if then david calls him lord, how is he his son?” and no man was able to answer him a word, nor from that day did any one dare to ask him any more questions.” (matthew: 22/41-46), and in mark "david himself calls him lord; so how is he his son? and the great throng heard him gladly." (mark: 12/37), and (luke: 20/41-44), and we have explained earlier the issue of jesus calling the prophet "the messiah".

the title "the expected messiah", concerns a messiah who will rule and crush his enemies. jesus (pbuh) denied it several times. he told pilate that: “jesus answered, “my kingdom is not of this world. if my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that i might not be delivered over to the jews. but my kingdom is not from the world." (john: 18/36) he meant it is a spiritual kingdom.

in addition, it is not the kingdom prophesized by david in his psalms, as he said, “the lord said to my lord, sit at my right hand, until i make your enemies your footstool.  the lord sends forth from zion your mighty scepter. rule in the midst of your enemies.  your people will offer themselves freely on the day of your power, in holy garments from the womb of the morning; the dew of your youth will be yours. the lord has sworn, and will not change his mind, “you are a priest forever after the order of melchizedek. the lord is at your right hand, he will shatter kings on the day of his wrath.  he will execute judgment among the nations, filling them with corpses; he will shatter chiefs over the wide earth. "

he is the one prophesized by jacob, he said,  “and to him shall be the obedience of the peoples." (genesis: 49/10).

the priest dr. faheem aziz, the dean of the theology college for protestants in egypt, quotes the western scholars denial that “jesus was acting and talking as a messiah for the jews or the messiah whom the old testament was waiting for".

solomon gave prophecies in psalms of the prophet king saying: “may he have dominion from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth.  my desert tribes bow down before him and his enemies lick the dust.  may the kings of tarshish and of the coastlands render him tribute, may the kings of sheba and seba bring gifts.  yea, all kings fall down before him, all nations serve him. for he delivers the needy when he calls, the poor and him who has no helper. he has pity on the weak and the needy, and saves the lives of the needy.  from oppression and violence he redeems their life and precious is their blood in his sight.  long may he live, may gold of sheba be given to him, may prayer be made for him continually; and blessing invoked for him all the day. may there be abundance of grain in the land, on the tops of the mountains may it wave; may its fruit be like lebanon; and may people blossom in the cities like the grass of the field. may his name endure forever: may his fame continue as long as the sun, may people be blessed in him. blessed be the lord, the god of israel, who alone does wondrous things. blessed be his glorious name forever, may the whole earth be filled with his glory; amen, and amen." (psalms: 72/8-19)

 

to whom did the kings disgracefully kneel and bow and who is the one that god glorifies in all ages?

no doubt, that he is muhammad (pbuh), where the greatest kings of his time, including the romans and the persians bow to his authority.
