2 samuel 21a keep covenants

  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 September 29, 2013
  2. 2. 2
  3. 3. 3 2 Samuel 21 1a Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the LORD. When you are having trouble, ask God why. It may be that sin has you bound.
  4. 4. 4 1b And the LORD answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites. Saul was trying to get rid of a potential enemy, but he broke a covenant made in the Name of God.
  5. 5. 5 Way back when Israel was entering the Promised Land, God was giving them victory after victory. The Gibeonites didn’t want to fight a losing battle, so they sought a covenant with Israel, which God had forbidden with any near neighbors in the land.
  6. 6. 6 They pretended to have traveled from afar with worn out shoes, moldy bread, and old wineskins. Joshua 9:14 And the men took of their victuals, and asked not counsel at the mouth of the LORD. Joshua made a covenant, promising not to harm them. Then they learned that they were near neighbors. Too late. Saul broke the covenant, and God is punishing Israel.
  7. 7. 7 Beware the tricks and traps of devils. 2 Timothy 2 24 And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the Truth; 26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
  8. 8. 8 Joshua and the Israelites fell for the trick of these devils, because they did not talk to God. They trusted what they saw with their eyes and heard with their ears, using their rational mind to make a decision. Trust God and God alone.
  9. 9. 9 2 And the king called the Gibeonites, and said unto them; (now the Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites; and the children of Israel had sworn unto them: and Saul sought to slay them in his zeal to the children of Israel and Judah.) Saul ignored the covenant.
  10. 10. 10 3 Wherefore David said unto the Gibeonites, What shall I do for you? and wherewith shall I make the atonement, that ye may bless the inheritance of the LORD? 4 And the Gibeonites said unto him, We will have no silver nor gold of Saul, nor of his house; neither for us shalt thou kill any man in Israel. And he said, What ye shall say, that will I do for you. Money can’t fix everything. They didn’t want money or revenge.
  11. 11. 11 5 And they answered the king, The man that consumed us, and that devised against us that we should be destroyed from remaining in any of the coasts of Israel, 6 Let seven men of his sons be delivered unto us, and we will hang them up unto the LORD in Gibeah of Saul, whom the LORD did choose. And the king said, I will give them. This was not their doing.
  12. 12. 12 7 But the king spared Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan the son of Saul, because of the LORD'S oath (the covenant) that was between them, between David and Jonathan the son of Saul. 8 But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal (Merab) the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite: The Bible tells us that Michal was childless because she made fun of David for dancing in worship unto the Lord.
  13. 13. 13 9 And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest. March - April
  14. 14. 14 10 And Rizpah (one of Saul’s concubines and mother of 2 of the men killed) the daughter of Aiah took sackcloth, and spread it for her upon the rock, from the beginning of harvest until water dropped upon them out of heaven, and suffered neither the birds of the air to rest on them by day, nor the beasts of the field by night. When the rains came the curse was over.
  15. 15. 15 Covenant breaking is serious business. Numbers 30 2 If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth. Saul broke a covenant that Joshua had made hundreds of years earlier: God stopped the rain during David’s reign.
  16. 16. 16 Don’ts we have seen today. Don’t make vows that you won’t keep. Don’t break vows after you have made them. Don’t do anything without knowing God’s Will. Joshua made a covenant with the Gibeonites without praying about it. He got tricked!
  17. 17. 17 Good News! Psalm 4:3 (NIV) Know that the LORD has set apart the godly for Himself; the LORD will hear when I call to Him. Psalm 34 17 The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles. 18 The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. 19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
  18. 18. 18 The Good News is this: No matter how we got into troubles, the Lord will deliver us when we cry unto Him in genuine sorrow for our sins and repent. To repent is to turn from sin unto righteousness.
