    • Gospel Baptist Tabernacle 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 www.rossvillechurch.com Where the Love of God abounds, everyone is welcome. Children’s Church taught by Paul and Marsha Davis during preaching. November 17. 2013 1
    • In Samuel 24 we have found that the nation had sinned and God was angry with the people. 2 Samuel 24 1 And again the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel, and He moved David against them to say, Go, number Israel and Judah. Hebrews 10 26-27 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the Truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 2
    • 70,000 dead in 3 days David repented. God stopped the angel just before he decimated Jerusalem with the pestilence. 3
    • 2 Samuel 24:18 And Gad came that day to David, and said unto him, Go up, rear an altar unto the LORD in the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite. 19 And David, according to the saying of Gad, went up as the LORD commanded. According to well-founded tradition, this threshing floor, a wide, smooth, ledge-like surface, was on Mount Moriah, just outside the northern wall of David’s Jerusalem. But David had no right to it because it was owned by a citizen. The Bible Knowledge Commentary: An Exposition of the Scriptures by Dallas Seminary Faculty. 4
    • 20 And Araunah looked, and saw the king and his servants coming on toward him: and Araunah went out, and bowed himself before the king on his face upon the ground. 21 And Araunah said, Wherefore is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said, To buy the threshing floor of thee, to build an altar unto the LORD, that the plague may be stayed from the people. 5
    • 22 And Araunah said unto David, Let my lord the king take and offer up what seemeth good unto him: behold, here be oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and other instruments of the oxen for wood. 23 All these things did Araunah, as a king, give unto the king. And Araunah said unto the king, The LORD thy God accept thee. A generous offer! 6
    • Those know not what religion is, who chiefly care to make it cheap and easy to themselves, and who are best pleased with that which costs them least pains or money. For what have we our substance, but to honor God with it; and how can it be better bestowed? Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary. Some go to church for what they can get, rather than for what they can give and do. Wrong mindset! 7
    • Romans 12 1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. 1 John 5 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep His Commandments: and His Commandments are not grievous. Jesus died, shedding His Blood to wash away our sins, saving us from sin and from hell. It is not unreasonable for Him to expect us to live our lives according to His Word. 8
    • Araunah offered to give the threshing floor and all that David needed for the sacrifice. 24 And the king said unto Araunah, Nay; but I will surely buy it of thee at a price: neither will I offer burnt offerings unto the LORD my God of that which doth cost me nothing. So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver. We pay our tithes and give offerings out of all with which God has blessed us through our labors. If it costs us nothing, it is worth nothing. 9
    • 25 And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was entreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel. Simple obedience. It was not the altar nor the offerings that God blessed, but the obedience. 10
    • 1 Samuel 15 22 And Samuel said (to Saul), Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the Voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. 23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. … To stubbornly rebel against God’s Word is to rebel against God. To willingly obey is to love God. 11
    • Luke 6 38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. God says for us to give generously, and He will bless generously. Those who give or do for God – grudgingly – Will not be blessed abundantly. 12
    • Some folks think that the tighter they squeeze their money, the more they will have to hold on to. God says that the more generous hearted we are, the more that He will bless us. But be careful to give wisely, not wastefully. To give to an addict is to increase their addiction. To give to the wasteful is to be wasteful. 13
    • Ephesians 4 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labor, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Why work? To have an abundance out of which to give. Need is necessity. 14
    • Need Luxury 15
    • 2 Corinthians 8 12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not. Proverbs 3 9 Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. 16
    • God does not want us to give away our necessities to help someone else. 1 Timothy 5 8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel. 17
    • God never asks for anything which He has not first given us. 18
