  3. 3. 3 Absalom’s revolution is over; 2 Samuel 19b DavidThe people want David to come back to Jerusalem as king. The King is Coming
  4. 4. 4 2 Samuel 19:15 So the king returned, and came to Jordan. And (the men of) Judah came to Gilgal, to go to meet the king, to conduct the king over Jordan. 16 And Shimei the son of Gera, a Benjamite, which was of Bahurim, hasted and came down with the men of Judah to meet king David. Shimei was the one who cussed David and threw rocks and dirt at him as he left Jerusalem.
  5. 5. 5 17 And there were a thousand men of Benjamin with him, and Ziba the servant of the house of Saul, and his fifteen sons and his twenty servants with him; and they went over Jordan before the king. Ziba was the servant of Mephibosheth; he had told David that Phib stayed in Jerusalem hoping to gain the throne.
  6. 6. 6 18 And there went over a ferry boat to carry over the king's household, and to do what he thought good. And Shimei the son of Gera fell down before the king, as he was come over Jordan; 19 And said unto the king, Let not my lord impute iniquity unto me, neither do thou remember that which thy servant did perversely the day that my lord the king went out of Jerusalem, that the king should take it to his heart. Now he repents; when David is returning victorious, he repents.
  7. 7. 7 20 For thy servant doth know that I have sinned: therefore, behold, I am come the first this day of all the house of Joseph to go down to meet my lord the king. Abishai 21 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah answered and said, Shall not Shimei be put to death for this, because he cursed the LORD'S anointed?
  8. 8. 8 Abishai was a warrior, right down to his bones, and he was a defender of his Uncle David. Shimei deserved to be put to death. But, thank God, we don’t always get what we deserve!
  9. 9. 9 22 And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be adver- saries unto me? Both Abishai and Joab were sons of David’s sister, Zeruiah. They were quick to speak their minds, and often disagreed with David.
  10. 10. 10 22b shall there any man be put to death this day in Israel? for do not I know that I am this day king over Israel? 23 Therefore the king said unto Shimei, Thou shalt not die. And the king sware unto him. David didn’t want to turn a day of celebration into a day of death.
  11. 11. 11 Too often hot-headed people turn what should be a blessed day into an uproar. Family holiday Wedding Who got what Who does what David didn’t want a killing to mar his return as king.
  12. 12. 12 But, as he lay dying, David instructed Solomon to deal with Shimei for his cussing and rock throwing. 1 Kings 2 (NIV) 8 "And remember, you have with you Shimei son of Gera, the Benjamite from Bahu- rim, who called down bitter curses on me the day I went to Mahanaim. When he came down to meet me at the Jordan (as David returned to Jerusalem victorious), I swore to him by the LORD: 'I will not put you to death by the sword.' 9 But now, do not consider him innocent. You are a man of wisdom; you will know what to do to him. Bring his gray head down to the grave in blood."
  13. 13. 13 Shimei had asked forgiveness, but apparently he had not truly repented of his rebelliousness. He gave David trouble, and David believed he would also give Solomon trouble. David told Solomon to deal with him before he did.
  14. 14. 14 Matthew 3 7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? 8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet (worthy) for repentance: John the Baptist Water baptism does not wash away one’s sins. We must turn from sin unto righteousness.
  15. 15. 15 2 Timothy 2 19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the Name of Christ depart from iniquity. … 22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. Depart from iniquity; flee youthful lusts. Grow up! Be a man or woman of God. Follow righteousness, faith, love, and peace With them that call on God with pure hearts.
  16. 16. 16 1 Peter 3 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew (shun or turn from) evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue (pursue) it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. To follow God we must turn from sin. Not to be saved, but because we are saved.
  17. 17. 17 Luke 9 23 Then He said to them all: "If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me. 24 For who- ever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for Me will save it. 2 Corinthians 5 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (TLB) 17 When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun!
  18. 18. 18 Just as David knew that Shimei had not truly changed, and would one day bring trouble to Solomon, There are many today who profess salvation, but are never truly transformed. They may shed some crocodile tears, but without repentance. They say, “I’m sorry.” But are not truly sorrowful for their sins.
