No. 1077:
King David's life and work - the biggest example of Jesus in the Bible sees a disregard his fall with Bathsheba!

Picture David fight Goliath.

Disregarding in from David ugly and loathsome fall with Bathsheba (mentioned in 2 Samuel).
So he is the people in the whole Bible that has the strongest traits that Jesus had. In many ways it was the association between being a servant, but also to be a shepherd, the combination there that was so evident in David's life. He could weep with those who weep, but also be happy with those who were happy! We will in this article look at some aspects of King David, as we all have something to learn from.

1.) How does God view us? How does God King David? Where confessed sin is a sin that does not exist in God.
We read in the books of Samuel and the Book of Kings, in which we see things from an "underground" viewpoint. It says length about King Davis sin and transgression. While Chronicles as one sees things from "heaven", which is not his sin and transgression mentioned at all.
What does it tell us? That we have confessed our sin, repent, and live with the Lord today, then we are forgiven. This is one of the Bible's great truths, that sin that God has forgiven, it's gone in his eyes.

Mika 7. 19 Yahweh will again show mercy to us and trample our debts under foot. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.

2.) David was not considered in people's eyes but in God's eyes. This emerged several places with David. Not least when he was elected as King. Then he was not considered, but was brought in as an "emergency measure, but it was he whom God had chosen to be the next King of Israel after King Saul.
1 Sam. 16. 1. The Lord said to Samuel: How long will you mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil, and go! I send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite among his sons I have provided me a king. 2 And Samuel said, How can I make such a journey? If Saul hears it, he will kill me. Lord said: Take thee a calf of the cattle, and say: I am come to sacrifice to the Lord. 3 And call Jesse to the sacrifice, and I will show thee what thou shalt do: and thou shalt anoint unto me whom I say unto thee. 4 Samuel did as the Lord said. When he arrived at Bethlehem, the elders trembling in the face and said, Is it peace? 5 And he said, Peaceably; I have come to sacrifice to the Lord; sanctify yourselves, and come with me to the sacrifice! And he consecrated Jesse and his sons sanctify themselves and invited them to the sacrifice. 6 When they arrived, Samuel saw Eliab and thought, Surely the LORD his anointed. 7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his appearance or his stature; For I have rejected him; I do not see as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 8 Then Jesse called Abinadab and had him pass before Samuel; but he said: Neither hath the Lord chosen. 9 Then Jesse made Shammah go forward; but he said: Neither hath the Lord chosen. 10 Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel; And Samuel said to Isai: The Lord has not chosen these. 11 And Samuel said to Isai: Are here all thy children? He said, There remains yet the youngest, he keepeth the sheep. Samuel said to Jesse, Send and fetch him! For we will not sit down until he arrives. 12 So he sent for him. He was ruddy and had beautiful eyes and was beautiful to look upon. Then the Lord said, Arise, anoint him! For he is. 13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of Jehovah came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel arose and went to Ramah.

3.) David was always faithful over the areas that he has gone. At first he was a keeper of sheep, as was his Saul songs, warrior. Secondly king in Hebron, and eventually King over all Israel in Jerusalem. As was the city that he possessed, and which ruled him out from.
Luke 16 10 Whoever is faithful in the least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

This applies to us all, we must believe in the "record" or in the labor and ministry that the Lord has put us, as David was.

4.) King David had an incredible number of gifts from the Lord, which he used to bless others. He was both a hymns, speeches, leader, shepherd, King, Prophet and strategist of dimensions. And using itself, it is also a blessing for themselves. Scripture says he who refreshes others will himself be watered.
Word. 11. 25 The blessing, to enjoy themselves, and whoever refreshes others will himself be watered.

5.) King David lived in "new testament" in which the Spirit of God led him constantly. Even in the Old Testament, it was possible to live in such a Spirit Level, this did King David. We also see in one of his confession hymns after the fall with Bathsheba, so va the most important for him that God took His Spirit from him!
Psalm 51 12 God Create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me 13 Cast me not away from thy presence, and take not thy holy spirit from me 14 Give me joy of your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit

6.) King David fall with Bathsheba also shows David's greatness. Why? For several reasons, not least that he both confessed his sin, repented of his sin, did penance when he ia prayed all night for the son he had received in sin with Bathsheba. Even in defeat, as David showed greatness.

7.) When he fled from Absalom, so he felt that his whole life and future lay in the hands of the Lord. When life was in the greatest difficulty, so proud and thought David still in the Lord. It is as scripture says:

Word. 24. 10 Displays thou faint in the day, then your power ring.

David proved very strong, in the day of trouble!

8.) David did not return evil for evil, here we see a big, big move with David. We all, especially those who walk with the Lord shall learn that it is almost evil, difficult and suspicious people we meet sometimes almost morning, noon and night, all week and throughout the year. But David blessed, leave everything in God's hands and triumphed to let evil be overcome with lists. He never allowed any root of bitterness growing up, and would damage either in their or other lives.

Room. 12 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless, and curse not 15 Rejoice with those happy, and weep with those who weep! 17 Recompense to no man evil for evil; verily that which is good, sight of all men!

2 Sam. 16. 8 The LORD has made come again upon thee all the blood have flowed in house of Saul, in whose stead you became king, and the Lord has given the kingdom into your son Absalom; behold, you have come to the accident you have earned; for a bloodhound is you. 9 Then said Abishai the son of Zeruiah to the king: Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? Let me go over and take off his head! 10 And the king said, What have I to do with you, sons of Zeruiah? So let him curse, because the LORD hath said unto him, Curse David! - Who shall then say, Why did you do that? 11 And David said to Abishai and to all his servants: Behold my son, who came forth of my bowels, seeketh my life; How much more do not then this Benjamite! Let him curse! For the Lord hath bidden him. 12 Perhaps the LORD will look upon my affliction, and that the Lord gives me happiness in return for the cursing of me today.

Even here in the hour of trial "accepted" Davis overt curse. He showed that God is his "defender and lawyer"!

9.) King David's toughest arena was not on the battlefield but in his own family at times.

Now it's not just talking about black / white, after all then got David the smartest and wisest son who have lived on this earth for Jesus, Solomon. But there is still no doubt that David was his children also an ordeal, but why?
I think there are several reasons, both "self-inflicted" and "undeserved".
1.) He made them spoiled. Was for "pampering" with them.
2.) David himself fell into sin and was a poor role model.
3.) The kids got "everything" up in your lap, but for David it was a struggle to get things.
4.) There was little teaching and understanding of how important it is for children to be put to tasks.

10.) David did not live for themselves but for God and what was to come. He ia collected a plethora of things to the temple that he wanted to build, but that he was not allowed to build by God. As his son Solomon built. He could have left all the work of Solomon, but David did what he could. So that his son and the upcoming generation realized and demonstrated that it is the Lord, and the Lord alone who should have first place. God's work can and must take precedence over everything.

1 Chron. 29. Then King David said to all those who had come together: Solomon my son, whom alone God has chosen, is young and tender, and the work is great; for the palace is not for man but for the Lord God. 2 With all my resources I have provided for my God the gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, bronze for things of bronze, iron for what will be of iron, and wood for the things of wood, onyx stones and other gems, stones for setting, black gloss tener and variegated stones - all kinds of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance. 3 Moreover, because I have my God dear, I will also give what I own gold and silver, to my God - above everything I have provided for the holy house, 4 three thousand talents of gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to overlay the walls of, 5 so there can be gold and silver for all that shall be of gold and silver, and all manner of workmanship of the craftsmen. Who then is willing to consecrate his hand to the LORD? 6 Then the willing gifts, both heads of families and tribes of Israel princes and captains of thousands and hundreds, with the rulers over the king's work: 7 five thousand talents and ten thousand drams of gold and ten thousand talents of silver and brass eighteen thousand talents, and one hundred thousand talents iron gave for the service of God's house; 8 and those who had precious stones gave them to the treasure house of the Lord, which Gersonite hand of Jehiel. 9 And the people rejoiced that they gave so willingly; for with a perfect heart they gave voluntarily their gifts to the Lord; King David rejoiced too greatly.

11) King David could also put your foot down and announce when needed. He was not only the "magnanimous" man, but also the "tough" chieftain of Israel, we see this all through King David's life. Here in from the end when he gives instructions to his son Solomon, who would take the throne after him, when it was very clear that he received instructions on how to "cleanse" the judgment of the carnal and profane people who were under David Solomon should have with themselves under his rule.

1 Kgs. 2. 1. Toward the time that David was about to die, he commanded Solomon his son, saying, 2 I go the whole earth way; So be strong and be a man! 3 And keep the charge of the Lord your God requires: Walk in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments and his statutes and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all that you do and everything you give thee about, 4 that the Lord may fulfill his word, that he spoke concerning me, saying, 'If your children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and all their soul, so be it - he said - never want a man to your throne of Israel. 5 You know what Joab son of Zeruiah did to me - what he did to both Israel commanders, Abner son of Ner and Amasa son of Jether, whom he slew, and shed the blood in peacetime as if there was war, and let it get blood on the belt he had about his loins, and the shoes he had on his feet, as if it was war. 6 Do therefore your wisdom, but do not let his gray hair go down peace to Sheol. 7 But Barzillai the Gileadite sons shall you prosper, and let them be among those who eat at your table; for in the same way they came to me when I fled from your brother Absalom. 8 So you have Benjamite Shimei of Bahurim, son of Gera, with thee; it was he who cursed me so bad the day I went to Mahanaim; When he came to meet me down to Jordan, and I swore to him by Jehovah, saying, I will not put you to death by the sword. 9 But let him not go unpunished! You are a wise man will know what to do with him, so you let his gray hair go blood down to the grave. 10 Then David slept with his fathers and was buried in the city of David.

12.) David won several large and mighty victories. But victory over Goliath was probably the greatest single victory, as did David known throughout Israel. Shall we serve God, we need also win some victories and really take the better of the Evil One. Or so he takes the better of us.

13) King David's life involves so much more than this, we realize that here we face the person who most resembles Jesus certainly through the whole Bible. When to look away from his fall with Bathsheba, God forgave him.
