The Sword Is Upon David’s House

Good morning church. Today we will be looking at the sword coming upon David’s house. Nathan the prophet told David this would happen; God’s word always comes to pass. The sad part about this is, we see David get angry in v 1, but he does nothing to Amnon his first born for raping his […]

Do Not Be Deceived

Today we will see David confronted by a man of God; Nathan the prophet. Nathan had to be brave to confront the king like this. The king could have had him killed. David had gotten away with his loose lifestyle for some years and in this passage of scripture, it catches up to him. We […]

The Battle with The Flesh

Today we will continue to see David operating in the flesh. Joab, David’s general, sends a messenger and tells David that Uriah and some of the men are dead. Normally this would cause grief in a person, but David’s response is, “The sword devours one as well as another”, a proverb of that day which […]

The Battle with The Flesh

Today we will look at one of the saddest stories in the Bible. David stays home from battle and gives in to the lust of the flesh. Because of this, men are killed, his reputation is shot, and his family will pay. Sin is never free. It will cost you and those around you, and […]

Be of Good Courage

In chapter 9, David shows kindness to Saul’s grandson, Jonathon’s son, and in Chapter 10, David wants to show kindness to a young man who has just lost his father. This time the kindness of David will be rejected. His men will be humiliated and it will cause a war that will affect thousands. It […]

Yourself OR Others

Today we will be looking at David’s concern for others. David has more than he can ask for, and remember in the last chapter, David wanted to build God a house. God said “no”, and David started looking for someone else to help. He asks a guy named Ziba about Saul’s family, if there was […]

Submitting OR Quitting?

As I read through 2nd Samuel and see how much David goes through and how he responds, it helps me, to get me out of the way. So many times, in our walk we will get stung by believers and nonbelievers. I don’t know how many times I have felt like quitting. But I must […]

The Prayer of David

Today we will be in 2nd Samuel, looking at David’s prayer. David has just been told NO by God. David’s intentions were good I’m sure, but it wasn’t God’s will. How many times have people turned away from God because they are told NO. In other words, their prayer is not answered the way they […]

The Great I AM

As we look at 2nd Samuel 7 we see that David had good intentions to build a house for God. Even though our intentions are good, sometimes they are not in the will of God. This is the case with David. The prophet Nathan says to David, do what is in your heart, even the […]

From A Charade to True Worship

Today we continue our journey through 2nd Samuel. We will be in Chapter 6. David has put together a great team of people to bring the ark of the covenant with Israel. There is a major problem with what is happening. David did not seek counsel from God and he is doing things his own […]

For the Sake of Who?

Today we will be in 2nd Samuel 5:11-25. God tells David that He has done what He has done for the sake of Israel. He gave David the ability to become a great man. Even though David failed he would get back up and turn to the Lord. Remember in the Book of Esther how […]

Get A Grip

Today we will be in 2nd Samuel Chapter 5:1-10. We see in this chapter that all of Israel comes to David. why do they all of a sudden have a change of heart? They have nowhere else to go. Saul is dead, Abner is dead and now Ishbosheth is dead. All their leaders are gone. So often […]

Caught Sleeping

Today we will look at a man named Ishbosheth, Saul’s last son to the throne. In our text he is caught sleeping in the middle of the day. It wasn’t uncommon to take naps, but as king, he should have been more alert and more guarded. The attack came from within, in other words, it […]

Revenge

Glad to be back, but sad to leave family in Texas. Today we will be in 2nd Samuel 3 looking at the two different characters, David and Joab. Their family, but so different. We see David forgive and want peace and we see Joab not forgive and have murder in his heart. It’s amazing how […]

Where Is God In All This?

Today we will be in 2nd Samuel 3. The title of this message is, “Where is God in all this?” Have you ever asked that question? So many times in life we find ourselves in situations that we never intended to get into. Just because David has six kids from six different mothers does not […]

My Will Be Done?

When we decide that we will live our lives the way we want, and don’t turn to God for direction and guidance we end up with, “My will be done”. This is what happens in 2nd Samuel chapter 2 when two generals come together and have a contest with their young men. There is no […]

God’s Will?

A Death in The Family

Today we will be in 2nd Samuel Ch 2 looking at David, who will soon be king, and mourning the death of Saul, his father in law, and Jonathan, his brother in law. David has fasted, wept, prayed and I’m sure still hurting. When someone close to us passes from this life, there is really […]

You Reap What You Sow

Today we will be back in the Old Testament, looking at 2nd Samuel. David is met with a problem when he gets back home from battle. A young man tells him that his father in law and all his brother in laws have been killed in battle. It’s always horrible to hear of death, and […]

Building and Waring

All I can say is we need to get our eyes off this crazy world and set our sights on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. Today we will be in Luke 14. Jesus has been invited to a dinner by a Pharisee and Jesus begins to say what it means to follow […]

Keep Your Lamp Trimmed and Burning

Today we will be in Luke 12, looking at the parable of the householder and the thief. Jesus lays out a picture of the end times in Matthew 24 where He speaks of the same thing, being ready for the Lord. Jesus speaks often of being prepared for His return, but even if He doesn’t […]

A Friend At Midnight

Today we will be in Luke 11 looking at a friend at midnight. This parable is the twin to the unjust judge. In this parable we see a man that is not willing to get out of bed to help a friend and a man that is behind closed doors. It is a complete opposite […]

What an Awesome God We Serve, He Is Risen!!!

Parable of The Rich Fool

Today we will be in Luke 12:15-21 looking at the rich fool. There is nothing wrong with having money or working hard. They are both wonderful, but this rich fool focused on nothing else but making money. In other words, he didn’t give God the time of day. God wants us to be involved with […]
