1 kings 2b king david's last words

  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 27, 2014
  2. 2. 2 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: 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; Review
  3. 3. 3 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. From a biblical perspective, if we are to claim a Promise, we must conform to the prerequisite. God holds up His end of the bargain, are we? Jared Thompson on Facebook Review
  4. 4. 4 The Promises and Blessings of God come with the conditions of faith and obedience. To have faith in God is to obey His Word, continuing to walk before Him in Truth.Many people are trying to claim promises by speaking words of faith, But are not willing to live a life of faith.
  5. 5. 5 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. Prerequisites? That man is blessed. I want to be that man!
  6. 6. 6 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. Does that describe your soul?
  7. 7. 7 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; In verse 5, David continues to instruct Solomon as to what he should do after David dies.
  8. 8. 8 5 Moreover thou knowest also what Joab the son of Zeruiah did to me, and what he did to the two captains of the hosts of Israel, unto Abner the son of Ner, and unto Amasa the son of Jether, whom he slew, and shed the blood of war in peace, and put the blood of war upon his girdle that was about his loins, and in his shoes that were on his feet.
  9. 9. 9 6 Do therefore according to thy wisdom, and let not his hoar head (gray head; old age) go down to the grave in peace. Joab had been a cunning soldier all his life, but He had not always been a good and godly man. His death would be justice.
  10. 10. 10 1 Kings 2 7 But shew kindness unto the sons of Barzillai the Gileadite, and let them be of those that eat at thy table: for so they came to me when I fled because of Absalom thy brother. Barzillai and his sons helped David when David was troubled by Absalom’s rebellion. David invited them to come to the palace in Jerusalem and live with him.
  11. 11. 11 2 Sam 19:34 "No," he replied, "I am far too old for that. 35 I am eighty years old today, and life has lost its excitement. Food and wine are no longer tasty, and entertainment is not much fun; I would only be a burden to my lord the king. 36 Just to go across the river with you is all the honor I need! TLB David not only remembered those who had sinned, but also those who had done good. He told Solomon to show kindness to them. Then another who must receive justice:
  12. 12. 12 8 And, behold, thou hast with thee Shimei the son of Gera, a Benjamite of Bahurim, which cursed me with a grievous curse in the day when I went to Mahanaim: but he came down to meet me at Jordan, and I sware to him by the LORD, saying, I will not put thee to death with the sword. 9 Now therefore hold him not guiltless: for thou art a wise man, and knowest what thou oughtest to do unto him; but his hoar head bring thou down to the grave with blood.
  13. 13. 13 These men that David instructed Solomon to execute were the ones most likely to cause trouble. They had caused David trouble and would cause Solomon trouble. He needed to make the throne secure.
  14. 14. 14 10 So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. 11 And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem. King David died after 40 years on the throne of Israel. Solomon is king in his stead.
  15. 15. 15 12 Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly. We will see that Solomon obeyed his father and secured his throne. He took care of business.
  16. 16. 16 We must take care of business, if we would have a church that will stand the test of time. 2 Corinthians 7 5 For, when we were come into Macedonia, our flesh had no rest, but we were troubled on every side; without were fightings, within were fears. Churches have always been troubled with fears and with fightings. As are we!
  17. 17. 17 2 Corinthians 11 28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches. The devil has always fought against churches that stand for God – His Truth and His Way. He wants to destroy this church. The devil and his henchmen want to see God fail in this place.
  18. 18. 18 God is calling us today to fight the good fight of faith. That is the only way that we shall stand as a church. We must all live our lives in faith through obedience to God.
  19. 19. 19 We must endure hardness as soldiers of the cross. 1 Timothy 4:16 (NIV) Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers. As Paul told Timothy: Let us persevere!
