Transcript of "1 kings 2a be strong and show thyself a man"

  1. 1. 1 Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. www.rossvillechurch.com April 13, 2014
  2. 2. 2 1 Kings 2 1 Now the days of David drew nigh that he should die; and he charged Solomon his son, saying, 2 I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong therefore, and shew thyself a man; David is seventy years old and nearing death. He said, “I go the way of all the earth.” Death is certain. We will lose loved ones to death, and we will die. Be prepared.
  3. 3. 3 David told Solomon to be strong and show himself a man. The Hebrew word for “man” in this verse is iysh which indicates a a good man, a great man, a wise man, or as we would say -- a real man. How was Solomon to show himself such a man? The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook. Prov 18:4
  4. 4. 4 3 And keep the charge of the LORD thy God, to walk in His Ways, to keep His Statutes, and His Commandments, and His Judgments, and His Testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: A real man has the courage and strength to walk in the Ways of God.
  5. 5. 5 There are many misconceptions about what makes a man a real man. Some think it is the ability to fight and cuss and drink a lot of beer. Some think manhood is hitting his wife and kids, spending the money for whatever he wants, and in general being a jerk around the house.Others think it is sexual exploits, illicit children; lots of women.
  6. 6. 6 Some think manhood is demonstrated by power and money; a big job. Others think manhood is shown by what you don’t do: a real man doesn’t wear pink and doesn’t eat quiche, never cries, never shows any tenderness, and couldn’t possibly have a woman as just a friend. In their minds, a real man never reads a book, hated school, loves to live on the edge of trouble.A real man drives a big truck, has a pack of dogs, big knife, and several guns; you know the type -- Real men!
  7. 7. 7 None of these things has anything to do with being a real man. A real man is a man of God: 1 Timothy 6 11-12 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, mee kness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
  8. 8. 8 A real man follows after righteousness and godliness. In other words, he loves the things of God: His first loves are Bible, Church, Prayer, and Worship. He is a man of faith and he is faithful to his God, his family, his friends, and to his church. A real man is strong enough to genuinely love and show that love without fear. He can be tender and affectionate without embarrassment.
  9. 9. 9 A real man is strong enough to be patient; to wait on God to work in his life; even to wait patiently on his wife to get ready to go somewhere.  A real man submits himself to the Holy Spirit of God and to the Word of God, and allows God to make him what he ought to be. A real man fights the good fight of faith without fear or doubting. Prov 18 4The words of a (real) man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
  10. 10. 10 There is no shortage of wisdom; The well-spring of Wisdom is like a flowing brook. It’s too much trouble to go to Scripture and dip into the flowing brook of the Wisdom of God. Besides, God doesn’t tell us what we want to hear! Most people just won’t dip into the stream. They prefer their own feelings and their own understanding.
  11. 11. 11 It’s too much trouble to meditate on God’s Word and find the Truth, and live it. It’s easier to feel. It’s easier to just believe what you want to believe. But Let us be real men and women of God. Let’s dip into the flowing brook of wisdom God’s Word , so that our words are as deep waters.
  12. 12. 12 Solomon is King of Israel. As David lay dying, he instructed Solomon on how to be a great king. Be strong; prove yourself a man by keeping the charge of the Lord God.
  13. 13. 13 A man proves his manhood living for the Lord. 3b to walk in His Ways, to keep His Statutes, and His Commandments, and His Judgments, and His Testimonies 3c that thou mayest prosper in all that thou doest, and whithersoever thou turnest thyself: Prosper here means to have good success.
  14. 14. 14 It takes courage to stand for right and against wrong. But do you have the courage and strength to live life God’s Way in every time, in every place, in every group of people, and in every situation? That is true courage! It’s easy to go along with the crowd; To say what everyone else is saying; To do what everyone else is doing.
  15. 15. 15 4 That the LORD may continue His Word which He spake concerning me, saying, If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before Me in Truth with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said He) a man on the throne of Israel. The Promises and Blessings of God come with conditions of faith and obedience. To have faith in God is to obey His Word, continuing to walk before Him in Truth.
  16. 16. 16 Psalm 1 1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in His Law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. Prerequisite?
  17. 17. 17 3 John 1 2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. The prerequisite here is that our soul must prosper. Luke 1 46 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior. If one’s soul is barren, his life will be barren.
  18. 18. 18 Psalm 103 1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name. 2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: 3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases;
