  1. 1. Stone Creek You are welcomewww.rossvillechurch.com781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 January 20, 2013 1
  2. 2. The Philistine warlords believing that David would turn on them, forced King Achish tosend David and his men away from the battle.They returned to Ziklag. 2
  3. 3. 8 And David enquired at the LORD, saying, Shall Ipursue after this troop? shall I overtake them? AndHe answered him, Pursue: for thou shalt surelyovertake them, and without fail recover all. Do you have trouble or grief in your life? Ask God in Jesus’ Name what to do. Do what the Lord says to do in His Word and by His Holy Spirit. The Spirit will agree with the Word. 3
  4. 4. God said “Go.” David went. 200 men, too tired to go on, stayed behind with their stuff, and 400 men went on to the battle. Young EgyptianBrook Besor slave Deserted by his Amalekite master because he was sick That’s the way the devil treats his slaves: Use them up and throw them away. 4
  5. 5. They fed him first and then questioned him later. If we don’t take care of the body, then the mind and spirit cannot function as we need.Psalm 127 (NIV) 1 Unless the LORD builds thehouse, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORDwatches over the city, the watchmen stand guard invain. 2 In vain you rise early and stay up late,toiling for food to eat -- for He grants sleep to thoseHe loves. Trust God for all. 5
  6. 6. He led David and his 400 mento where the Amalekites were celebrating -- drinking and dancing. 6
  7. 7. 17 And David smote them from thetwilight (dusk) even unto theevening of the next day: and thereescaped not a man of them, savefour hundred young men, whichrode upon camels, and fled. The battles are often long and hard.There’s always some devils left to cause trouble another day. The final victory will be in death. 7
  8. 8. The Israelites recovered their wives, children, livestock, and possessions, plus all the wealth the Amalekites had amassed.That’s what God told David when David prayed about pursuing the Amalekites. 8
  9. 9. 20 And David took all the flocks and the herds,which they (his men) drave before those othercattle, and said, This is Davids spoil. What did David need? Food for his men. At this point he wasn’t interested in personal wealth such as gold and silver. He had six hundred men to care for. 9
  10. 10. Where the 200 men who were too weak to go on had stayed to guard the stuff.Brook Besor 10
  11. 11. Some of the 400 who had gone on to fight said, “Give them their wives and children and run them off.” The Bible calls them wicked men of Belial.They were filled with pride and greed. 11
  12. 12. “We didn’t wimp out; we fought the battle.” “They were too weak to go with us.”These prideful and greedy men didn’t want to share the wealth. 12
  13. 13. 23 Then said David, Ye shall not do so, my brethren,with that which the LORD hath given us, Who hathpreserved us, and delivered the company that cameagainst us into our hand. 24 For who will hearkenunto you in this matter? but as his part is that goethdown to the battle, so shall his part be that tarriethby the stuff: they shall part alike. 25 And it was sofrom that day forward, that he made it a statute andan ordinance for Israel unto this day. 13
  14. 14. David knew from whence their help had come: From the Lord! The Lord had preserved them in battle. The Lord had given them victory. The Lord had provided all that they had. 14
  15. 15. He would not listen to the pride and greed of the complainers. Those who fought and those who stayedbehind to guard the stuff would share alike. Both jobs were equally needful, as are all jobs in the church. And we find in the last verses that David shared with neighboring villages who hadsuffered loss at the hands of the Amalekites. 15
  16. 16. 1 Timothy 6 17-19 Charge them that are rich inthis world, that they be not highminded(arrogant), nor trust in uncertain riches, but inthe living God, Who giveth us richly allthings to enjoy; That they do good, that theybe rich in good works, ready to distribute,willing to communicate (share); Laying up instore for themselves a good foundationagainst the time to come, that they may layhold on eternal life. 16
  17. 17. Many of David’s men were arrogant, thinking themselves better than the others.That’s often true today among those who have plenty of this world’s goods. “I worked hard and saved my money.” “Why should I share with others.” 17
  18. 18. But God says that He provided all that we have.Someone once said, “I understand that we are here to share with others, But what are the others here for?” The answer is given us in 1 Tim 6: That we may lay up for our own future:18That they do good, that they be rich in goodworks, ready to distribute, willing to communicate(share); 19 Laying up in store for themselves a goodfoundation against the time to come, that they maylay hold on eternal life. 18
