Believing In A Racist God

False gods bring in racism and other false teachings. Therefore, read the Bible and allow God to cast out every false belief.

How Does God See Your Heart?

Your everyday actions describe your heart for God or this world. He knows who has been renewed by the Holy Spirit and are saved.

David Had Children From Six Wives

Since the beginning of time, God said, “therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

Obey The Voice Of The Lord

Please know that when we stop listening to God, He also stops working in our lives. Therefore, the enemy has access to our lives, in order to hurt us physically and spiritually.

1 Samuel 30:6-8

1 Samuel 30:6-8 (KJV)
6 And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God.
7 And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech’s son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.
8 And David enquired at the Lord, saying, Shall I pursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? And he answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surely overtake them, and without fail recover all.

In Trials, Come To The Lord In Prayer

It was because David prayed, that he got the answer he needed from God. Therefore, the Lord’s wishes came to pass. This is when David and his six hundred men went and pursued after the Amalekites.

1 Samuel 28:16-18

1 Samuel 28:16-18 (KJV)
16 Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the Lord is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy?
17 And the Lord hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the Lord hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbour, even to David:
18 Because thou obeyedst not the voice of the Lord, nor executedst his fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath the Lord done this thing unto thee this day.

Saul Consults A Medium

Just because a person that has passed on can be called back from the grave in their spirit form, it does not mean that it should be done.

1 Samuel 26:22-25

1 Samuel 26:22-25 (KJV)
22 And David answered and said, Behold the king’s spear! and let one of the young men come over and fetch it.
23 The Lord render to every man his righteousness and his faithfulness; for the Lord delivered thee into my hand to day, but I would not stretch forth mine hand against the Lord’s anointed.
24 And, behold, as thy life was much set by this day in mine eyes, so let my life be much set by in the eyes of the Lord, and let him deliver me out of all tribulation.
25 Then Saul said to David, Blessed be thou, my son David: thou shalt both do great things, and also shalt still prevail. So David went on his way, and Saul returned to his place.

Being Set Free Causes Us To Show Love

The story of David is like my own, for he fell into adultery, as did I. And with David, the Lord was able to help him flee from it, of which God did the same for me.

Forgiving Our Enemies

It is important that we learn to forgive as God forgives us. And in doing this, we will learn to love as God loves us, for this is doing as Jesus taught us.

1 Samuel 23:9-11

1 Samuel 23:9-11 (KJV)
9 And David knew that Saul secretly practised mischief against him; and he said to Abiathar the priest, Bring hither the ephod.
10 Then said David, O Lord God of Israel, thy servant hath certainly heard that Saul seeketh to come to Keilah, to destroy the city for my sake.
11 Will the men of Keilah deliver me up into his hand? will Saul come down, as thy servant hath heard? O Lord God of Israel, I beseech thee, tell thy servant. And the Lord said, He will come down.

The Enemy Wants To Take Us Down

The devil desires for us to be happy for a time, but then have us feel a need to have more and more of it, in order to be really happy.

Lying Has Consequences

Surely, guilt can really kick in when we’ve lied to people that we care about. Even other people often pay the consequences for these mistakes, which is very sad.

What David Did Out Of Fear

Now, David’s second lie was having the need to get a weapon, because he said the king required it to be done in a swift manner.

1 Samuel 20:14,15

1 Samuel 20:14,15 (KJV)
14 And thou shalt not only while yet I live shew me the kindness of the Lord, that I die not:
15 But also thou shalt not cut off thy kindness from my house for ever: no, not when the Lord hath cut off the enemies of David every one from the face of the earth.

David And Jonathan

Jonathan was David’s best friend, and during these rough times, he was able to go to him, along with God, for help.

1 Samuel 19:4-6

1 Samuel 19:4-6 (KJV)
4 And Jonathan spake good of David unto Saul his father, and said unto him, Let not the king sin against his servant, against David; because he hath not sinned against thee, and because his works have been to thee-ward very good:
5 For he did put his life in his hand, and slew the Philistine, and the Lord wrought a great salvation for all Israel: thou sawest it, and didst rejoice: wherefore then wilt thou sin against innocent blood, to slay David without a cause?
6 And Saul hearkened unto the voice of Jonathan: and Saul sware, As the Lord liveth, he shall not be slain.

David Fled From Saul

If it wasn’t for Jonathan, that night, Saul may have tried early on to kill David. So thankfully his son at least saw the good in David and had his back, along with God, of course.

1 Samuel 18:12-14

1 Samuel 18:12-14 (KJV)
12 And Saul was afraid of David, because the Lord was with him, and was departed from Saul.
13 Therefore Saul removed him from him, and made him his captain over a thousand; and he went out and came in before the people.
14 And David behaved himself wisely in all his ways; and the Lord was with him.

David Became Saul’s Son In Law

It was in this time that Saul began plotting against David that, “Michal Saul’s daughter loved David: and they told Saul, and the thing pleased him.

1 Samuel 17:45,46

1 Samuel 17:45,46 (KJV)
45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
46 This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

David And Goliath

You may think that someone going to war, in times past, would need at least a helmet, armor, a shield and a sword. However, although this was common then, this was not the case for David.

1 Samuel 16:6,7

1 Samuel 16:6,7 (KJV)
6 And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.
7 But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.

David’s Anointing From God

It was after David got the calling from God to be King, that God’s anointing was removed from Saul. So the Spirit of God left him and an evil spirit found rout in Saul’s heart instead.

1 Samuel 1:14-16

1 Samuel 1:14-16 (KJV)
14 And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee.
15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord.
16 Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto.

Come To Jesus For Salvation

David explained how we can escape God’s wrath and anger. He said, “Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself.”
