No. 1511: The Corona virus and all other epidemics can be traced back to not following the Law of Moses and the customs of purity we find there!

No. 1511:
The Corona virus and all other epidemics can be traced back to not following the Law of Moses and the customs of purity we find there!

Many Jews were accused too much when mortality among Jews was much, much lower than among others. What came of it? In short, their cleanliness.
Hand washing has been practiced among all Jews for 3400 years, among Europeans 200 years. In China as the Corona virus started, one eats even snails and other things alive with their hands. ++++ many other things, no wonder the Corona virus originated there, though I by no means believe we are that much better than them.

There is something completely incomprehensible about many people that I do not understand. Therefore, I would urge everyone to be careful, to think carefully and to live up to the Mosaic Law, even though we as believers are not necessarily called to follow the Mosaic Law in one and all!

Room. 1 19 for what one can know about God is open to them, for God has revealed it to them. 20 For his invisible being, both his eternal power and his divinity, is visible from the creation of the world, being known by his deeds, so that they may be without apology, 21 because, though they knew God, they did not honor or thank Him. like God, but became poor in his thoughts, and their foolish heart darkened. 22 As they made themselves wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image, an image of a perishable man, and of birds, and of four-footed beasts, and of creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also delivered them into the lusts of their hearts for uncleanness, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 those who exchanged the truth of God for falsehood and revered and worshiped the creature before the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 Therefore God gave them up to shameful lusts; for both their women, the natural use turned to the unnatural,

Now, as an evangelical believer, I do not believe in blind obedience to everything in the Mosaic Law. But there are still as many things there as we should and should take care of. And God himself says that the Mosaic Law and all the ordinance God gave to Israel are spiritual, just, good and to the best of us humans. There is protection and rebuke in keeping the Law, if it can never bring us salvation!

Room. 7. 12 Then the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.

I would not speculate on this, but I am convinced that there is a lack of cleanliness in dealing with animal slaughter and further eating.
There, presumably, someone has eaten things that are not good and not least the usual diet for us.
Here one can speculate a lot, but there is no doubt that the Mosaic Law and its regulations are well flammable 3400 years after it was written.

No. 1510: Some thoughts about baptism in the Holy Spirit and being a "tongue-in-cheek speaker!"

No. 1510:
Some thoughts about baptism in the Holy Spirit and being a "tongue-in-cheek speaker!"

Illustrative image from a meeting where one praises God and speaks in tongues, glory being the name of Jesus Christ!

Acts 2. 1. And when the day of Pentecost came, they were all gathered together in the same place. 2 And all at once there came a sound from heaven as of a very raging weather, and filled the whole house where they sat. 3 And there appeared unto them tongues as of fire, which parted, and sat upon every one of them. 4 Then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them speech. 5 Now there dwelt in Jerusalem Jews, godly men of all peoples under heaven. 6 And when this sound came, the multitude stumbled, and were confounded, because they heard them speak to every man for his own purpose; 7 And they were astonished, and wondered, and said, But are not all these that speak Galileans? 8 How then do we all hear our own goal in which we were born, 9 we parties and fellows and elamites, and we who live in Mesopotamia and Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the landscapes of Libya at the Cyrus, and we visitors from Rome, 11 both Jews and followers of the Jews' faith, Cretans and Arabs: do we hear them speak of God's great deeds in our tongues? 12 And they were all astonished, and were a fool, and said one to another, What is this? 13 But others mockingly said, They are full of sweet wine! 14 Then Peter stood up with the eleven, and lifted up his voice, and spake unto them, Ye men of Judah, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem. Do this to you, and lend ear to my words! 15 For these are not drunken, as ye think; it is only the third hour of the day; 16 But this is what is said by the prophet Joel: 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, that I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall speak prophetic words, and your children. men shall see visions, and your elders shall have dreams; 18 Yea, even over my servants, and over my bondwomen, in those days will I pour out of my Spirit, and they shall speak prophetic words. 33 Now that he is exalted by the right hand of God, and has received the Holy Spirit, which was promised by his Father, he poured out this which ye both see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, but he himself saith, The Lord said unto my lord, Sit thou at my right hand, 35 until I put thy enemies to shame at thy feet. 36 Then shall all the house of Israel know that God has made him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified. 37 And when they heard this, they stung their hearts, and said unto Peter and the other apostles, What shall we do, brethren? 38 Peter said unto them, Repent, and every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise belongs to you and to your children and to all those who are far off, as many as the Lord our God calls. 40 And in several other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, Save yourselves from this delusional kindred! 41 Those who now received his word were baptized, and on that day about three thousand souls were added. 47 praising God and having the favor of all the people. And the Lord daily delivered to the church those who were saved.

I have shortened this chapter down a bit to bring out the most important things about baptism in the Holy Spirit and living in the Spirit.

Not all believers are baptized in the Holy Spirit, but all believers have the Holy Spirit as an inherent Spirit.

The script is clear here:

Room. 8. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if the Spirit of God dwell in you; but if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to him.

If we do not have the Spirit of God - the Holy Spirit - the Spirit of Christ, we do not belong to God. But if we have the Holy Spirit, we belong to God and Christ.

Let me briefly show the difference between having the Spirit and being baptized in the Spirit.

Joh.e. 4. 14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I will give him shall never thirst, but the water that I will give him shall be in him a fountain of water that floweth unto everlasting life.

Joh.e. 7. 37 But on the last great day of the feast Jesus stood and cried, If any man thirst, come unto me and drink. 38 Whosoever believeth on me, of his life, shall, as the scripture hath said, run rivers of living water. 39 This he said of the Spirit that they should have believed in him; for the Spirit had not yet come, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

Here Jesus first speaks of being saved, then there is a wellspring in one's interior that emerges!
But after the baptism of the Holy Spirit, streams are flowing!

I could have gone much further into this topic, but refer to the book The Baptism of the Spirit - Werner Skibsted


The disciples were given an incredibly large mission, but they would not do anything until they had been baptized into the Holy Spirit. It was brought afterwards, then they were to carry out Jesus' command!

It is with others a "step-by-step" race for the disciples, as it is for us.

The first thing they experienced was to be saved and few the Holy Spirit.

Joh.e. 20. 21 And he said unto them again, Peace be unto you. Just as the Father has sent me, so will I send you. 22 And when he had said these things, he breathed on them, and said unto them, Receive the Holy Ghost. 23 If you forgive anyone their sins, they are forgiven; if you hold them to someone, then they are restrained.

Notice Jesus' words that he says "He breathed on them and said to them, Receive the Holy Spirit!"

The basic text freely translates only the one word spirit which means the same as when God created heaven and earth mentioned in
Genesis 1. 1. In the beginning God created heaven and earth.
And Genesis 2 7 And the Lord God formed man of the earth's mouth, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The Bible is written largely in two languages. GT in Hebrew and NT in Greek.
But these are the same words used, that God the Spirit, and then it became a lasting and complete change. God Himself let something of Himself into man.
Both that we are human, but above all when we accept Jesus as our personal Savior and Lord, as the disciples did!

Baptism in the Holy Spirit - an experience after salvation.

We read about the disciples, they had been born again. But they nevertheless experienced something much more on Pentecost day. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, something they had not experienced before Pentecost.
Yes, they had the Holy Spirit, but they needed something much more. As they experienced and received on Pentecost - a powerful and glorious baptism in the Holy Spirit or as the scriptures say.

"Then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them speech."

It is so important, just and good, to experience a baptism in the Holy Spirit. But it doesn't stop there, it's a beginning, of something even more.
Therefore, the scripture says again and again, be filled with the Spirit again, it never stops!

Acts 4. 8 Then Peter said unto them, filled with the Holy Ghost, In the rulers of the people, and the elders of Israel.

Efes. 5. 18 And do not drink of wine, for in it there is restlessness, but be filled with the Spirit,

Don't go this far as I have got so many good points here. It is limited what one can digest, and let go inside.

But there is, in short, a "number" here that one must follow.

1.) Born again, by the Spirit of God and the Word of God, then one receives the Spirit as pledge in the heart forever and ever.

2.) Baptism in the Holy Spirit, where the tongues follow as a sign, one must follow the pattern found in the New Testament.

3.) A continually awakened fullness of the Spirit, which one needs daily. Yes, actually several times in one day.

4.) Walk in the Spirit, which in many ways is the fullness of Christ. Something you have to live in every day, this is "fresh!"

5.) One day we will become Jesus' body when we see him. Everything in our bodies points to this.

Final Comment:

Here I have only tried to give readers an insight into the biblical pattern. Where one is saved and receives the Holy Spirit. Further forward, both a baptism in the Spirit, and a further fullness and walking in the Spirit.
Have a lot more to say and write here. But think that's enough for this time.

No. 1506: The Norwegian state and government appear as a state of zero credibility and that "time" has run out!

No. 1506:
The Norwegian state and government appear as a state of zero credibility and that "time" has run out!

Pray for wisdom, a responsive heart that can distinguish between good and evil. This was requested by King Solomon, unfortunately, the Norwegian authorities and the public Norway have totally lost the ability to have a responsive heart to distinguish good from evil.
But if they pray and fear the Lord, they will have!
This is what God's Word says and teaches, I believe that.

King Solomon asked them to chop the living kid in two, and then the love of mother appeared to the real mother, and she got her kid. This is wisdom that unfortunately the Norwegian authorities are devoid of.

What was now being dealt with in the Supreme Court was a more "humble" state than I have seen in a long time. There have now been 7 cases involving BV in Strasbourg, France (the Human Rights Court), and 28 are pending.
When Norway continues to lose, they have zero credibility.
What is happening now is nothing more than an earthquake, shaking the whole "world!"
Let's just try to be "quiet", and here is no way back for Norway.
What is happening and what is happening is a victory for the Norwegian people.
At the same time, there is tremendous defeat for the better-knowers and the power apparatus here in Norway. They have proved to be unsuitable for the job!

This is what Marius Reikerås writes:

I saw how the state was trying, by all means, to evade responsibility in the North Diver case.

There was no way in which the state cheated on the evidence in that case, also confirmed by the European Court of Human Rights in December 2013.

I have seen, and still see, how public officials have cheated with evidence in the Scandinavian Star case.

I have seen how UN soldiers, oil workers in the North Sea, amalgam victims, etc., have been let down by the Norwegian state.

I was present when the children of war presented their case to the Human Rights Court in March 2007, only to lose as a result of the state had kept secret the documentation that could prove public responsibility.

In the years 1988-94, approx. 180,000 high school students and 50,000 military recruits in the trial of a meningococcal B disease vaccine, the so-called MenBVac.

I have met some of those who have fallen ill for the life of this giant experiment, without the state lifting a finger to help them.

Who wants to be disabled at the age of 23?

I have seen how people perish as a result of a lawless child welfare system. Regular cheating put in place, confirmed many times by the European Court of Human Rights already.

The NAV scandals are therefore only a follow-up to what we have seen for many years already.

Cheating put in the system.

And so I could still have concrete examples, far into the small night hours.

Final Comment:

1 Kong. 3. 5 In Gibeon the Lord appeared unto Solomon in a dream by night; God said: Ask what you want me to give you! 6 And Solomon answered, Thou hast shown great mercy toward thy servant David my father, as he walked before thy face in truth and in righteousness, and in the sincerity of thy heart, and thou didst continually show this great kindness unto him, and gave him a son. who should sit on his throne, as it is today. 7 And now, O LORD my God, hast thou made thy servant king in my father David's stead; but I am only a youth and do not know how to carry that in one and all. 8 And your servant is here in the midst of your people, that which you have chosen, a people so great that it cannot be counted or counted, so great it is. 9 Then give your servant an audible heart to judge your people, to distinguish between good and evil! Who else could judge this your people who are so numerous? 10 The Lord liked that Solomon had asked for this thing. 11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast prayed this thing, and asked not a long life, nor asked for riches, nor for the death of thine enemies, but have prayed to understand what is right, 12 I do as you ask: I will give you a wise and wise heart so that it has not been yours just before and will not be yours immediately after you. 13 And whatsoever thou hast not asked, I will also give thee riches and honor, that it may not be thine own among the kings all thy days. 14 And if you will walk in my ways, and keep my laws and my commandments, as your father David did, I will give you a long life. 15 Then Solomon awoke, and he perceived that it was a dream. And when he was come to Jerusalem, he went before the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and offered burnt offerings, and offered peace offerings, and made a feast unto all his servants. 16 At that time two harlots came and stood before the king. 17 And one woman said, Hear me, my lord. This woman and I lived in the same house, and I gave birth to a child in her house. 18 And on the third day after I was born, this woman also bore a child. There we were together now; there was no stranger with us in the house; only we two were in the house. 19 That night the son of this woman died because she was lying on him; 20 And she arose in the middle of the night, and took my son from my side And while thy handmaid slept, and she put him in his bosom, and her own son that was dead, she lay in my bosom. 21 And when I arose in the morning to give my son to die, I saw that he was dead; but when I looked more closely at him in the morning, it was not my son that I had born. 22 And the other woman said, No, he that liveth is my son, and he that is dead is thine. But the first said, No, he that is dead is thy son, and he that liveth is mine. Thus they spoke while standing before the king. 23 And the king said, One said, He that liveth is my son, and he that is dead is thine. And the other says, No, he who is dead is your son, and he who lives is mine. 24 Then the king said, Get me a sword! And they brought a sword, and brought it to the king. 25 Then the king said, Chop the living child into two, and give one half to the one, and the other half to the other. 26 Then the woman who was the mother of the living child said to the king - for her heart burnt for her children - she said: Listen to me, sir! Give her the living child and don't kill it for all things! But the other said, Neither I nor you shall have it; just chop! 27 And the king said, Give her the living child, and kill it not. She is her mother. 28 All Israel heard of the king's judgment, and they feared the king; for they saw that the wisdom of God was in his heart, that he judged right.

King Solomon was to lead the people, what did he need?
Wisdom, he asked for it and got it.
Anything but what the Norwegian authorities and the public Norway have.
Then they must pray, and then they will too!

No. 1505: I am only peace said King David - but the enemy hates peace!

No. 1505:
I am only peace said King David - but the enemy hates peace!

Of all my opponents I've met, Pastor Jan Aage Torp probably stands out as the dirtiest and most dishonest I've ever met.
First he invites me to the cafe, right afterwards he notifies me.
Especially worse and hypocritical is it not possible to be?
Yes, Pastor Jan Aage Torp is the sneakiest, ugliest and most malicious of all my opponents.
Who has just been looking to make nausea and trouble for me and my family. It has been a dirty game, but I have figured no one will ever be able to get me out of the box. As I and my family have God's Word and God's promises that we should stand after defeating and overcoming everyone!

Psalm 120. 1. A song during the party journeys. / To the Lord I cried in my distress, and he answered me. 2 Lord, deliver my soul from a false lip, from a false tongue! 3 What will he give you, and what more will he give you, you false tongue? 4 Violent man's sharp arrows and glow from the bush. / 5 Woe to me, that I live as a stranger among Mesek, that I dwell at Kedar's tent! / 6 Long enough has my soul dwelt with those who hate peace. 7 I am only peace, but when I speak, they are ready for war.

From my Bible comments on Psalm 120.

Will 120: 1-7
With this hymn begins a continuous series of hymns (Psalm 120-134), all of which have the same heading: A song during the party travels. (Danish has here: A song on the stairs.)

There have been different opinions about what this headline means. Some believe that the stairs mean the 15 steps on the stairs up to the temple. They led up from the women's court to the men's.

But the most common opinion is probably the right one, namely that the stairs signify the annual festive journey that the children of Israel made from all over the country and up to Jerusalem at the three major festivals.

Jerusalem is quite high, which is why it is always called to go up to Jerusalem. In the surrounding mountains the road winds up from one ledge to the other so that it truly looks like a staircase.

It is a good idea in this that the children of Israel went up to Jerusalem with song. They went higher and higher, step by step. The spiritual walk up to heavenly Jerusalem also progresses from step to step.

Therefore only in the name of Jesus,
then it goes home too,
then every joy and every need
a step on our heavenly ladder.

Already in David's time, these party journeys were of great importance in the spiritual life of the people. Four of these songs during the party trips are also by David, one of Solomon. The others probably date from the time of Babylon's return.

These hymns are not about the condition and condition of some people, but they interpret the hope and lament of Israel in its entirety. It is social hymns that depict the condition of the people of God with greatness and depth.

This hymn that we have now can be divided into two. First, v. 1-4 comes with a prayer for salvation from false, deceitful enemies. Then in v. 5-7, the psalmist portrays how heavy it was to be surrounded by enemies who constantly waged war.

The situation we are describing here fits well with Israel's condition after returning from Babylon. Then they had great strife with the Samaritans. They were then half-pagans, but would also claim to have the same share in God's kingdom as Israel.

When the children of Israel began to build the new temple, the Samaritans would join. But they were denied it, because Zerubbabel and Joshua said to them, "It is not with you that we will build a house for our God" (Ezra 4: 3).

Then the Samaritans were upset that they were not recognized and put out an evil rumor about the Jews of the Persian king. In this way, the Jews were prevented from building the temple for a long time.

These Samaritans are a good image of all name Christians who become embittered when God's true children will not recognize them as believers.

The people of God go to the Lord in his distress. After all, this path has always been shown to lead to salvation (v. 1). In v. 3, the psalmist addresses the enemy with the question: "What will he (that is, the Lord) give you, you false tongue?"

And he replies, "The warrior's sharp arrows and such glow as it is when the broom bush burns."

What the enemy had prepared for Israel should now strike them. They had tried to harm the people of God with evil, false words - they were sharp as arrows and scorched like a den. Now they would experience the judgment of the Lord as sharp arrows and the fierce anger of God.

"As it happens when the broom bush burns" - it means something that can burn for a long time. Such embers provided strong heat and could remain under the ash for a long time.

At the end of the hymn, the psalmist interprets the heavy state of God's people in: "Woe is me, who must live as a stranger among Mesek, and must dwell in the tent of Kedar" (v. 5).

Meshech was the son of Japheth (Genesis 10: 2). The name Mesek here means a people who lived between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, and they were known for their cruelty and cruelty.

"Kedar" was like the son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13) and denotes an Arab people who had inherited the desire to fight and tire of their ancestor. Both names are expressed here the people of the world. They can never leave the saints at peace, but they constantly attack and despise them. And so the people of God will learn to know their position as a foreigner and a foreigner here on earth.

"Long enough has my soul dwelt with those who hate peace" (v. 6), says the psalmist.

Yes, long enough. For too long, many have lived with the unbelieving world. Still, it's good when it comes from a heart: long enough. But now it will also be over. Long enough I was with the world. Now my place will be among the people of God, among those who love peace.

But even if a human being is converted, the people of God in a sense will still live with the world. The garlic and wheat should grow together until the autumn.

All the children of God must know that it is impossible to maintain peace with the world. "If possible, keep peace with all men, as far as it is in you" (Rom. 12:18). This is how the Lord's Apostle speaks.

God's children must make peace (Matthew 5: 9). But the people of God cannot let the truth go, and the salt of truth stays in the eyes and hearts of the unbeliever. Therefore, it is never different for God's people on earth, as it says here: "I am only peace, but when I speak, they are ready for war" (v. 7).

In the world you will have tribulation, Jesus has said to all his pilgrims who go with him up to Jerusalem. But he adds, "Be bold! I have overcome the world" (John 16:33).
(quote at the end,)

We read here that we as believers should be attacked by people who do not know the Lord.
These Bible commentaries say the following:
"Kedar" was like the son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:13) and denotes an Arab people who had inherited the desire to fight and tire of their ancestor. Both names here represent the people of the world. They can never leave the saints at peace, but they constantly attack and despise them. And so the people of God will learn to know their position as a foreigner and a foreigner here on earth.
(quote at the end.)

Final Comment:

The children of the world are capable, capable and will not be kind and good to us as believers in Jesus.
They behave simply and unfairly towards us.
They create problems and accuse us of doing so.
In other words, they are making false charges against us.
This is almost unbelievable, everything is turned on its head.
We behave fairly, well and truly.
And we are faced with being dishonest, evil, and lying. Although it is the truth is the opposite.
This is a spirit struggle - that we just have to learn to stand in.
At the same time, we see here that living in conflict is something we as believers want to avoid. At the same time to get away from it, but we must fight.
Then we do it without backing out, because we want to win!

No. 1504: Trials and difficulties as a Christian are God-willing, and in accordance with what God Himself says we as believers will experience!

No. 1504:
Trials and difficulties as a Christian are God-willing, and in accordance with what God Himself says we as believers will experience!

I think Ole Brumm has a nice attitude to things, "Yes, thank you both!"
That the Norwegian state helps people who have voluntarily joined a terrorist organization such as ISIL. It's good when the options were so bad to not help!

But that the same state opposes me and us as a family is unnecessary. Such discrimination is evil.

They could have played well with us, unfortunately they have chosen an aggressive and simple path. This can neither be defended nor understood; it only shows that many times terrorists and criminals are actually stronger than law-abiding and productive citizens. It's like God's Word says, this world is in the dark.

James 1 2 Take heed for joy, my brethren, when you come in all kinds of temptations, 3 knowing that the trial of your faith is patience; 4 But patience must lead to perfect work, that you may be perfect and whole, and lack nothing.
12 Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has stood his test, he shall receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

The basic text reads freely and briefly:

2 Enjoy only the difficulties you encounter.
3 Then testing your faith creates and produces endurance.
4 And let this endurance characterize you so that when the difficulties come, you can be perfect and complete, and lack nothing.
12 Blessed is the man who endured, for when he is tested, he will receive the resurrection crown that God gives to those whom he has found worthy and he loves.

As believers in the year 2020 here in Norway and Europe, we are far too well used and can withstand very few times.
Unfortunately, I've been there when God has allowed things to get in my way.
Then I have not been able to stand up and oppose what will adversely affect me.
It also affected my family and others. Simply suffered defeat.
Scripture speaks of this many places, here is a suitable scripture.

Word. 24. 10 If thou art discouraged in the day of affliction, thy power is poor.

Must give an example of how weak I once was, which just shows where I am today. Then it has been a process and way that I have gone!

We had come out of it when we had bought an apartment when prices were at a peak in the winter of 1988/89.
In 93 we sold at a loss, but we did not need this when we could rent it out and rent another apartment.
What did we do, or rather I said when it was I who controlled this.
Contrary to what was obviously the best and correct.
This later arranged God for the best, but so I could have continued to tell and explain that one is not taught to live as a believer one day.
The fact is that it takes years - yes, a lifetime!

What we go through as believers - is the will of God in the sense that God allows. The reason why he allows and lets things happen can be for several reasons. But we as believers should act and be different, and thank the Lord in all circumstances. This is what Scripture says.

1 Thess. 5. 18 thanks for everything! for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus unto you.

The basic text states freely the following:
In any case, thank you, for what happens to you is according to God's will with you in Jesus Christ.

In other words, we should never complain, be angry, angry, tired or take back with the same coin, this is the word of God.

King David got into trouble, where he could both retire. Yes, even took the life of his enemy when he was King and had thousands of men under him.

2 Sam. 16. 5 And when king David came to Bahurim, there came out from there a man related to the house of Saul, whose name was Shimei the son of Gera; he was cursing 6 and throwing stones at David and all King David's servants, while all the people and all the bravest warriors went with him, both on the right and the left. 7 And Shimei bound him, saying, Away, thou, thy blood-dog, thy riddle. 8 And the LORD brought again upon thee all the blood that was moved in the house of Saul, he in whose stead thou wast king, and the LORD hath given the kingdom to thy son Absalom; behold, now you are in the misfortune you have deserved; for a bloodhound you are. 9 Then Abishai the son of Zeruiah said unto the king, Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? Let me go over there and hit his head! 10 And the king said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah? When he banners, and when the Lord has said to him, Ban David! - who dares say: Why did you do that? 11 And David said to Abishai, and to all his servants, Behold, my son, who is gone out of my life, standeth after me; how much more then this Benjaminite! Just let him curse! For the Lord has commanded him. 12 May the Lord look to me in my distress, so that the Lord gives me happiness in return for the curse that has struck me today. 13 And David and his men went by the way, and Shimei went up into the valley by the side of him, and he went and fled, and he cast out dotted with stones and sand as he walked there with him.

What did King David do here? We read that Sime'i, Gera's son, cursed King David in the worst, and made strong accusations that now he got back for what he had been like. The claim he made must have been very hurtful and painful to David. But how did he react? We read further here in the books of Samuel.

2 Sam. 19. 15 Then the king set out on his way back, and came to Jordan. Then Judah had come to Gilgal to meet the king and lead him over the Jordan. 16 And Benjamin the son of Shimei, the son of Gera, of Bahurim, went down, and went down with the men of Judah to meet King David; sons and twenty servants; and they hurried over Jordan before the king. 18 And the ferry went over the river to carry the king's house over, and to his disposal in all things. But Shimei the son of Gera fell to the king when he went over Jordan; 19 And he said unto the king, Lord, count me not my bread, nor remember how thy servant did it in the day that my lord the king went out from Jerusalem. The king must not let it go to heart! 20 For thy servant knoweth that I have sinned; but behold, today I am the first of all Joseph's houses to come down here to meet my lord the king. 21 But Abishai the son of Zeruiah answered and said, Shall not Shimei slay his life, he that hath cursed the anointed of the Lord? 22 And David said, What have I to do with you, ye sons of Zeruiah, that ye should this day be my adversaries? Should any man in Israel die today? I know that I have become king of Israel today. 23 And the king said to Shimei, Thou shalt not die. And the king swore to him.

Here came Sime'i, Gera's son, with a very dubious prayer for grace. What did David do then? After all, he completely overlooked and allowed God to take care of things. King David would go ahead and spend time and energy on completely different things. That is what must also be our focus and desire, move on with God - always!

This Simei, son of Gera, died at the hand of King Solomon. This is also a very interesting and instructive section of God's Word, which I will briefly mention.
This Shimei, son of Gera, was granted "grace" by Solomon to dwell in Jerusalem, but was not allowed to leave. As in some form of house arrest. This he broke and had to make good with life. He got back for what he sowed, but several years later.

1 Kings 2. 39 And it came to pass at the end of three years, that two of the servants of Shimei escaped to the king of Gath, Achish the son of Maacah; and it was reported to Shimei, Thy servants are in Gath. 40 Then Shimei arose, and saddled his ass, and went to Achish in Gath to seek his servants; Then Shimei went there and brought his servants back from Gath. 41 But Solomon was told that Shimei had gone from Jerusalem to Gath, and had returned. 42 And the king sent messengers unto Shimei, and said unto him, Did I not swear by the LORD, and say unto thee, Surely thou shalt know that on the day thou goest out and goest to another place, shalt thou die? And you answered: That's right what you say; I've heard it. 43 Then why did you not obey the oath sworn by the Lord, and the commandment I gave you? 44 And the king said unto Shimei, Thou knowest all the evil that thy heart knoweth that thou hast done unto my father David; and the LORD now bringeth back thy wickedness upon thy own head. 45 But King Solomon shall be blessed, and the throne of David shall stand before the Lord for ever. 46 And the king commanded Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, and he went out, and smote him, and he died. And the kingdom was safe and secure in Solomon's hand.

We do not need revenge on anyone, before or since we get their verdict and finally!

Final Comment:

The basic text freely and briefly states the following in Jacob's letter 1:
2 Enjoy only the difficulties you encounter.
3 Then testing your faith creates and produces endurance.
4 And let this endurance characterize you so that when the difficulties come, you can be perfect and complete, and lack nothing.
12 Blessed is the man who endured, for when he is tested, he will receive the resurrection crown that God gives to those whom he has found worthy and he loves.

As believers, we sometimes live among Gentiles who live, walk, and love darkness. Then we have to count on attacks from the enemy, but we must remain standing after winning and overcoming everything.

Here from my Bible commentaries Ephesians 6. 10 Finally: Be strong in the Lord, in His mighty power!

Then Paul jumps from the human and natural part to the spiritual. But all this goes together. God's Word encourages us to become strong and overcome. We become that by obeying the word of God and putting on His mighty power. Even in GT there were powerful promises to be obedient which we find among other things. in Deuteronomy 28, how much more in the new covenant!

11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can withstand the devil's insidious attacks.

Here we will put on the full armor of God. What it is and includes comes in the next e versene. We will not only wear some parts of the armor, but the whole armor. But there are so many believers who never come out or go out in the spirit struggle that this is something they can't quite relate to. It is only when one has been in a fight that one realizes how important and vital this is. If you have been in a fight and suffered defeat, then you will do everything you can to not suffer defeat in the next fight!

13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that you may be able to resist the evil day and stand after overcoming everything.

Therefore, the apostle urges believers to put on the full armor of God so that they can resist the evil day (v. 13). The days are different. Some days we look back with joy, others we would rather forget. We do not know anything about the days to come, but from experience, some will be good others evil. We should note that the Devil is a strategist and would like to find a day when we feel everything is difficult and heavy, then he comes with his cunning and temptation to try to lead us to fall.
Particularly evil days for God's people are times of persecution. In our day, many in the world are being persecuted for their Christian faith, and the world is experiencing more martyrs than ever in history. The time of persecution will culminate in the coming of the Antichrist and the great tribulation. Therefore, it is important that we put on the full armor of God so that we can stand.
(quote at the end.)

What do we as believers need? What position should and should we be in?

The apostle Paul says the following "so that you can resist the evil day and stand after overcoming everything."

Yes, after everything that comes against us, we are both to stand, and nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus.

Room. 8. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, neither angels nor powers, nor what is now nor what is to come, nor any power, 39 neither height nor depth, nor any other creature, shall separate us from the love of God. in Christ Jesus our Lord.
