In God’s promise to David, there will be an eternal King from his line that will be on the throne forever. This very promise leads God’s people to look forward to their Messiah that will save them; the very one that the prophets would describe for them. This promise is fulfilled when God sends His only Son Jesus Christ to save the world.

Like all other Old Testament promises by God, this one is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, who took our curses on the cross so that we would be blessed in Him forever!
God's promise for His people to inhabit the promised land was conditional; blessed to stay in the land if they kept relationship with Him and scattered if they broke relationship with Him. But the promise to possess and inherit the land will be fulfilled when Jesus returns in the last days.
