2 samuel 21b spiritual warfare

  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 October 6, 2013
  2. 2. 2 Saul had broken the covenant Joshua had made with the Gibeonites as Israel entered Canaan. God caused a drought to be on Israel for Saul’s sin. 2 of Saul’s sons and 5 grandsons were hanged and left hanging until the rains came. Rizpah, mother of Saul’s two sons, guarded the bodies.
  3. 3. 3 2 Samuel 21:11 And it was told David what Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, the concubine of Saul, had done. 12 And David went and took the bones of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son from the men of Jabesh-gilead, which had stolen them from the street of Bethshan, where the Philistines had hanged them, when the Philistines had slain Saul in Gilboa:
  4. 4. 4
  5. 5. 5 13 And he brought up from thence the bones of Saul and the bones of Jonathan his son; and they gathered the bones of them that were hanged. 14 And the bones of Saul and Jonathan his son buried they in the country of Benjamin in Zelah, in the sepulchre of Kish his father: and they performed all that the king commanded. And after that God was intreated for the land. Saul’s past sin was paid for. The three year drought was over.
  6. 6. 6
  7. 7. 7 15 Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint. 16 And Ish bi be nob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass (7-12 lbs) in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David. David is getting old at this point, and he grew tired in the battle and would have been killed. Remember, David had killed one of this family of giants many years before this.
  8. 8. 8 17 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel. Too old to fight. But not too old to be God’s man. Not too old to be the light of Israel, leading the nation as God would have it to go.
  9. 9. 9 Too many men and women of God think that Christian service is like a career in the world.
  10. 10. 10 Philippians 1 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; 26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again. Paul had no plans to retire and live easy. He would serve until he died.
  11. 11. 11 18 And it came to pass after this, that there was again a battle with the Philistines at Gob: then Sib be chai the Hushathite slew Saph, which was of the sons of the giant. 19 And there was again a battle in Gob with the Philistines, where Elhanan the son of (Ja a re-or e gim), a Bethlehemite, slew the brother of Goliath the Gittite, the staff of whose spear was like a weaver's beam.
  12. 12. 12 20 And there was yet a battle in Gath, where was a man of great stature, that had on every hand six fingers, and on every foot six toes, four and twenty in number; and he also was born to the giant. 21 And when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea the brother of David slew him. 22 These four were born to the giant in Gath, and fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants. War after war with the Philistines, and there were giants with the enemy.
  13. 13. 13 Let’s be willing, yea eager, to follow our Lord, Jesus Christ in the battle -- even unto death.
  14. 14. 14 Ephesians 6 10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the Power of His Might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Our enemy is the kingdom of the devil. Not people; certainly not one another.
  15. 15. 15 The weapons of Satan are many, and he has giants in his force.
  16. 16. 16 When will the warfare be over? Not in this lifetime! Ephesians 6 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;When we have done all that we know to do, we can stand in the Power of God’s Spirit. Don’t stoop at standing time!
  17. 17. 17 Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; The Christian walk It is a long, hard battle in this life, but the joy of the Lord is our strength.
  18. 18. 18 NIV 2 Timothy 2 3 Endure hardship with us like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. A good soldier won’t desert. A good soldier never shirks his duty. He does not whine when things are tough. He determinedly stands straight and fights the battle.
  19. 19. 19 2 Timothy 4 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Hence- forth there is laid up for me a crown of right- eousness, which the Lord, the Righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing. One day we can say with the Apostle Paul: Let’s do it; with our whole heart. Hold nothing back. Have no reservations in your mind.
