Furthermore, Jesus is returning to this earth to establish His Kingdom (Lk 1:31-33) on the earth and to rule the nations with a rod of iron. (Rev 2:27)

1Chr 17
17:1  Now it came to pass, as David sat in his house, that David said to Nathan the prophet, Lo, I dwell in an house of cedars, but the ark of the covenant of the LORD remaineth under curtains.
2  Then Nathan said unto David, Do all that is in thine heart; for God is with thee.
3  And it came to pass the same night, that the word of God came to Nathan, saying,
4  Go and tell David my servant, Thus saith the LORD, Thou shalt not build me an house to dwell in:
5  For I have not dwelt in an house since the day that I brought up Israel unto this day; but have gone from tent to tent, and from one tabernacle to another.
6  Wheresoever I have walked with all Israel, spake I a word to any of the judges of Israel, whom I commanded to feed my people, saying, Why have ye not built me an house of cedars?
7  Now therefore thus shalt thou say unto my servant David, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, even from following the sheep, that thou shouldest be ruler over my people Israel:
8  And I have been with thee whithersoever thou hast walked, and have cut off all thine enemies from before thee, and have made thee a name like the name of the great men that are in the earth.
9  Also I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning,
10  And since the time that I commanded judges to be over my people Israel. Moreover I will subdue all thine enemies. Furthermore I tell thee that the LORD *(JESUS) will build thee an house. *(my emphasis)
11  And it shall come to pass, when thy days be expired that thou must go to be with thy fathers, that I will raise up thy seed after thee, which shall be of thy sons; and I will establish his kingdom.
12  He *(JESUS) shall build me an house, and I will stablish his throne for ever.[/b]  *(my emphasis)
13  I will be his father, and he shall be my son: and I will not take my mercy away from him, as I took it from him that was before thee:
14  But I will settle him in mine house and in my kingdom for ever: and his throne shall be established for evermore.
15  According to all these words, and according to all this vision, so did Nathan speak unto David.

The scriptures herein plainly teach, Christ is that son which is of the lineage of David, thru Nathan (son of David, 2Sam5:13-14, Lk 3:31) who will build the house of God on the earth and shall sit and reign forever and ever, in righteousness.

For Jehovah Witness's, this might be an interesting passage to consider, since the New World Translation,  says at;

1 Chr 17
9    And I shall certainly appoint a place for my people Israel and plant them, and they will indeed reside where they are and no more will they be distrubed; and the sons of unrighteousness will not wear them out again, just as they at the first.
10  even since the days that I put judges in command over my people Israel. And I shall certainly humble all your enemies.  And I tell you, 'Also a house Jevovah will build for you.

And David himself testifies;

27  For thou, O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, hast revealed to thy servant, saying, I will build thee an house: therefore hath thy servant found in his heart to pray this prayer unto thee.
28  And now, O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true, and thou hast promised this goodness unto thy servant:
29  Therefore now let it please thee to bless the house of thy servant, that it may continue for ever before thee: for thou, O Lord GOD, hast spoken it: and with thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed for ever.

And Solomon thought he was the one who would build that house.

2Chr 6
10  The LORD therefore hath performed his word that he hath spoken: for I am risen up in the room of David my father, and am set on the throne of Israel, as the LORD promised, and have built the house for the name of the LORD God of Israel.

At verse 16, same chapter, he prays this;  ........O LORD God of Israel, keep with thy servant David my father that which thou hast promised him, saying, There shall not fail thee a man in my sight to sit upon the throne of Israel; yet so that thy children take heed to their way to walk in my law, as thou hast walked before me.

After Solomons death, not one sat on the throne of David from his seed, it will happen when the Lord returns to reign and rule.

Clearly this passage of scripture is speaking of Jesus.

James, at the Council at Jerusalem, in Acts 15, speaks about this very thing;

13  And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying, Men and brethren, hearken unto me:
14  Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name.
15  And to this agree the words of the prophets; as it is written,
16  After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up:
17  That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.
18  Known unto God are all his works from the beginning of the world.

Jesus, will return to this earth to fulfill this very prophecy  concerning Himself, and He will rule from that place as King over all the earth. (Zec 14:1-19)

Your attention is invited to verse;

Zec 8
23  Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.

Is this not the [/b]Emmaunel..of Mat 1:23.

Does anyone have more to add, to this??

This is a very interesting topic. I agree with you that Jesus will return and rebuild the fallen tabernacle of David, but my view goes even deeper than that.
Jesus said:
Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.

The bible comments on this statement with these words:

Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?
But he spake of the temple of his body.
When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said.

Jesus declares himself to be the rebuilt temple made up of living stones. We are his house. We are his building. We are the temple, the church that Jesus said he would build. The amazing thing is, Jesus is the builder and the building all rolled up into one. The church is the anti-type of all that the old fallen tabernacle was symbolic of. The reality is Christ. Nothing can be more real than this.

It is true that we look for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ which will be the manifestation of our present reality.

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
