In Proposition 83, George Peters states:

“This Kingdom is given to the Son of Man by God, the Father.”

This is no small statement. The Son of Man will be given the Kingdom by God the Father. This statement, based on the facts previously investigated regarding the Son of Man and Jesus as the Divine-human, that the Kingdom being presented to Jesus as the Son of Man is his inheritance both from a Divine standpoint and from a Davidic covenant standpoint. Furthermore, since this Kingdom will be given to Him by the Father, it can never be taken away. The eternality of the Kingship is secure.

The most notable observation Peters presents in Proposition 83 is the following:

“This giving of the Kingdom by the Father to the Son of Man, shows, what has already been observed, that this Kingdom is something very different from the general Divine Sovereignty exercised by God. The Kingdom is an outgrowth from it, and the Divine Sovereignty will be exhibited through it, being constituted in the Theocratic form, which in its initiatory form was separated in its Rulership by two persons (i.e. God and David) but is now happily conjoined – making it thus efficacious, irresistible, and ever-enduring – in one, i.e., “the Christ.”

There is not much to add to this particular observation as it is an extension of previous statements by Peters. Jesus is Divine and thus His sovereignty is eternal. His rule over the throne of David will be a rulership given to Him by the Father at the proper time in salvation history. When He assumes that throne, as the Divine-human, the eternality of His sovereignty as God and the eternality of the inheritance of the throne will be conjoined into a marvelous never ending Kingdom. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to that day.
