Dear Doran and all:
 
You will want to re-visit your conclusion regarding the 144,000.  The Lord did NOT tell you that "The 144,000 are all descendants of David" because the scripture says there are 12,000 from each of the twelve tribes.  The family of David is a subset of the tribe of Judah.
 
Joshua, Zerubbabel and Moses were all related to David only because all are descendants of Jacob.  So this relationship should not surprise anybody.  However, Moses was of the tribe of Levi.
 
David will never lack a king to sit on the throne because Jesus is that son of David, and He is alive forevermore. (Luke 1:32)
 
Best,
 
Steve
