Second Samuel 17 – 18

2 Samuel 17 Ahithophel then advised an immediate attack to slay David, and Absalom was pleased; being full of bitter hatred over his treatment by his father David over his execution of the sister rapist Amnon. 2 Samuel 17:1 Moreover Ahithophel said unto Absalom, Let me now choose out twelve thousand men, and I will […]

Second Samuel 13 – 14

2 Samuel 13 The curse for the sin against Uriah comes quickly to David’s house, with his children knowing of their father’s sins thinking that they could also take liberties with the Word of God. Such is the power of a bad example; it causes others to also become lax. While a good example of […]

Second Samuel 3 – 4

2 Samuel 3 The next two chapters are tales of betrayal by men who were associated with David and which could have gone very badly for David. The death of Abner could have angered Israel and brought the armies of Israel against David and Judah in a great war, but instead God worked things out for […]

Second Samuel 1 – 2

Second Samuel The story of Saul and David is an allegory of the kingship of Satan and Satan’s struggle to avoid being replaced by Messiah and the called out of God, after having disqualified himself by his failure to obey God. 2 Samuel 1 An Amalekite tries to ingratiate himself with David by claiming the murder […]

The process has begun for the rise of a New Federal Europe.   Manfred Weber, a reserved Bavarian has won the backing of Europe’s centre-right parties in the race to become European Commission president.  Weber, who is little known outside of Germany and the EU capital Brussels and has never held a ministerial position, won 79 percent of the […]

First Samuel 28 – 31

1 Samuel 28 Achish believing that David was anathema to Israel, calls David to fight with him against Israel alongside the Philistines. 1 Samuel 28:1 And it came to pass in those days, that the Philistines gathered their armies together for warfare, to fight with Israel. And Achish said unto David, Know thou assuredly, that thou […]

First Samuel 26 – 27

1 Samuel 26 The life of David as the anointed yet not crowned king of physical Israel is an analogy of the life of the spiritually anointed and not yet crowned New Covenant called out to be kings and priests of the millennial kingdom of God (Rev 1:6, 5:10). David wrongfully suffered at the hands […]

First Samuel 25

1 Samuel 25 Samuel dies 1 Samuel 25:1 And Samuel died; and all the Israelites were gathered together, and lamented him, and buried him in his house at Ramah. And David arose, and went down to the wilderness of Paran. Nabal of Carmel [by Haifa] This is a classic story of pride and the deceitfulness […]

First Samuel 23 – 24

1 Samuel 23 David continues to fulfill the duty of his calling and anointing to God and his people, and thereby continues to rise in the respect of the people. Each of us was anointed to become a king and priest of the High Priesthood of Jesus Christ forever (Rev 1:6, 5:10). If we betray […]

First Samuel 19 – 20

1 Samuel 19 Saul became outraged and commanded that David should be killed. 1 Samuel 19:1 And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his servants, that they should kill David. But Saul’s son Jonathan who had made a covenant of friendship with David reported the matter to David. 19:2 But Jonathan Saul’s […]

First Samuel 18

1 Samuel 18 Jonathan who had proved his zeal and courage by taking on the Philistines in the name of YHVH meets David the champion of Israel who defeated Goliath in the name of YHVH. Obviously they were both men of faith, and of courageous action based on their faith, and they become the closest […]

First Samuel 17

1 Samuel 17 The story of David and Goliath is often portrayed as a classic story of an underdog winning out over his far more powerful rival. There is much more to the story than that! Goliath was an example of unrepentant sinners and of the sin of enmity against God and the Word of […]

First Samuel 15 – 16

1 Samuel 15 Samuel instructs Saul to attack the Amalekites, who were a vicious and cruel people. 1 Samuel 15:1 Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD. Jesus Christ […]

First Samuel 13 – 14

1 Samuel 13 Saul establishes a core standing army of three thousand 1 Samuel 13:1 Saul reigned one year; and when he had reigned two years over Israel, 13:2 Saul chose him three thousand men of Israel; whereof two thousand were with Saul in Michmash and in mount Bethel, and a thousand were with Jonathan […]

First Samuel 11 – 12

1 Samuel 11 Saul is given a small challenge so that God could begin to establish his name as king over Israel. Spiritually those who would be godly have always faced problems to build up the character of godly leaders. An Ammonite takes a city of Israel and the people not yet trusting Saul agree to serve […]
