As we come to 2 Samuel 7, we come to the theological center of the book. Over the last few chapters we have seen the Lord establish the rule and kingdom of his anointed, David. Enemies are defeated, Zion is established at the hub of the kingdom, and the Lord has come into Zion as seen through the arrival of the ark of the covenant. David has humble…
 
The Lord seemed to throw a damper on David’s party. The Lord has established David’s kingdom and David has determined to bring the ark of the covenant into Jerusalem. There is celebration and rejoicing as the ark of the covenant begins to make its way from Kiriath-jearim to Jerusalem on a cart being pulled by oxen. But tragedy struck. As the cart w…
 
God has given all of Israel and Judah to David and David has begun his rule at 30 years old. God is going to continue to establish the kingdom under David’s rule. Chapter 5 shows David as the new Joshua who is finishing the work that the generation of Joshua failed to complete. In 2 Samuel 5:6 we see David go up against the fortification of Jerusal…
 
One would supposed with the death of Saul that David’s way to the throne would be easy and clear. But God is going to show us more pictures through David about how the path to the throne will come for Jesus. The means of establishing the anointed and his kingdom will not be easy. The path to the throne will be a path of difficulty. We have seen Dav…
 
After talking about the godly devotion that God desires from God’s people, Paul turns his attention godly leaders and servants. We need godly leaders to shepherd the church and we need godly servants who can serve the church. Like the last section in 1 Timothy, it is easy to get lost in the details of chapter 3 and not see the big picture of what G…
 
As we transition into 2 Samuel it is important to remember that the division of these two books is arbitrary and not original to the scriptures. The book of Samuel was divided into 1 Samuel and 2 Samuel when the Greek translation of the scriptures was produced, hundreds of years later. But 2 Samuel describes the transition of the kingdom from Saul …
 
This is a passage that there can be the temptation to skip the context and hurry to verse 12 to understand what it means. But we cannot understand these passages properly without the context. So the intention of the lesson today is not to go through all the possibilities of how to understand this passage. Rather, I want to not lose sight of what Pa…
 
As we come to the end of 1 Samuel we must remember that 1 & 2 Samuel were originally one book and split into two books. The split did not occur until the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Hebrew scriptures. Even though we are coming to the end of the first book we are not coming to the end of the pictures and teachings in this book. As we re…
 
Have you ever heard this said or perhaps said it yourself? “I can’t forgive.” Somebody has done something to us and we simply cannot forgive that person for what they have done. Our series theme this year is called Overflow. The basis for our study comes from John 7:37-38. On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud…
 
David continues to remain in the wilderness. In the past two lessons we noted the parallels to the temptations of Jesus in the wilderness. The picture presented is that the anointed must go to the wilderness for a time of trial. David is enduring his time of trial right now. Saul continues to seek his life even though he learned that David was not …
 
We are in the midst of a series called Faith Foundations. The apostle Paul is writing to Timothy about how the people of God are supposed to act. The greatest foundation for our faith is the fact that Jesus came to save sinners. This truth is what changes how we live. Pray (2:1-2) Paul says in 2:1, “First of all.” Based on all the information Paul …
 
First Samuel 25 opens with the death of Samuel. It is somewhat surprising that we have one sentence to record the death of Samuel. But this is the passing of the torch from the prophet who anointed to the one who is the anointed, David. You will notice that with the death of Samuel, David returns to the wilderness. The wilderness of Paran is where …
 
We are in a series called Faith Foundations where Paul is telling Timothy what he must do and teach to the church in Ephesus. After Paul describes the goal of our instruction, he begins to give thanks to the Lord for what the Lord has done for him. Paul is going to share his life perspective which is going to help us have the right life perspective…
 
The next three chapters of this book, 1 Samuel 24-26, present the three temptations of the anointed one, David. David is going to be put to the test where he will be tested in many areas. The messianic lens is very strong at this point. We are going to see David, as the anointed, going into the wilderness and experiencing three temptations. In our …
 
We are starting a new sermon series called Faith Foundations. The basis for our study will be Paul’s first letter that he wrote to Timothy. But Paul is not writing this letter as if it was only intended for him to read with no relevance to us. We know this because God placed this letter as a part of his holy scriptures that will be preserved for al…
 
David Escapes (22:1-23) Chapter 22 opens with David leaving Gath and hiding in a cave in Adullam, which is just inside of Israel’s borders. David’s family hears that he is in the cave and his family comes to him (22:1). Listen to verse 2. Everyone who was in distress, everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gather to David and h…
 
This morning we return to our theme for this year called Overflow. We stopped the series as the pandemic broke out and we needed to look at having faith in these difficult times. But I want us to continue moving forward in our faith. As we adapt to this new normal we need to continue to move forward with God, strengthening our faith in him. The the…
 
We have been studying 1 and 2 Samuel and seeing pictures of the anointed and how God is going to save the world. In 1 Samuel 20-21 we will see David experience all kinds of difficulties and the pursuit of Saul intensifies. As we read we are going to consider two teaching pictures as we move through each chapter. First, we are being shown a picture …
 
Genesis 9 opens with a new hope. Remember that the world has been completely flooded as a judgment for the people’s wickedness. The only creatures who survived this judgment were Noah and his family along with the animals that were taken on to the ark with them. Now Noah and his family have exited the ark and God made a covenant with humanity that …
 
David has defeated Goliath, leading to Israel’s victory over the Philistines. David’s success as given to him by the power of the Lord will change David’s life. First, we see Jonathan, the son of Saul builds a relationship with David. Jonathan becomes so connected to David that he loves him like he loves himself. Now many have tried to import their…
 
On many occasions throughout his sermon, James addresses Christians who are going through suffering. James has taught Christians to embrace suffering as a way to let God produce endurance within us so that we can become spiritually mature. He has taught Christians to be patient as they wait for the coming of the Lord. Embrace the wait for the wait …
 
A Fearful Opponent (17:1-11) As 1 Samuel 17 opens we see that the Philistines are deep into the territory of Judah. The Philistines are nowhere near their border or land. They have made their way deep into the land of Israel. With Philistines bringing their armies deep into Israel’s land, it is time for a confrontation. Saul and his armies gather o…
 
When we think of having patience we can have the tendency to think about being patient toward people who are annoying or upsetting. Having patience is often framed in this light. Be patient with this person because they received bad news or are having a bad day. Be patient with this person because they are going through a hard time. So we often tal…
 
The reign of Saul began with such hope for Israel. The king of Israel was supposed to lead the people in righteousness and turn the hearts of the people away from wickedness. However, Saul, the king of Israel, has been refusing to do the will of the Lord even though he thinks he is obeying. Saul did not wait for Samuel for the sacrifices to be offe…
 
How are we supposed to hold on when times are tough? We are experiencing a time right now where life as we know it has been thrown upside down. No one could have imagined four months ago that this would be the way the world would look. What are we supposed to do during such difficult times? What does God want when times are hard? We are going to sp…
 
Saul is the king over Israel but has failed to listen to Samuel. Samuel told Saul to wait for him and after seven days he would come to him and offer the burnt sacrifices and peace sacrifices. But when Saul sees his own soldiers leaving and the growing size of the Philistine army, he disregards Samuel and begins offering the sacrifices himself. The…
 
Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. (James 4:13–14 ESV) Do you feel like James just said that to us today after what we have experienced over the last 45 days? James just said to pay attention those of us (wh…
 
Saul has been officially crowned a king of Israel before the Lord and the kingdom has been renewed (11:13). Samuel has given his farewell address and the expectation is for Saul to rule as God’s representative over Israel, restraining the wickedness of the people and turning their hearts toward God. The attention of the account is going to focus on…
 
Daniel is an ordinary man who goes through extraordinary circumstances. Daniel lived in Judah during the time when the Babylonians attacked Judah and captured all of the important national people. Daniel was one of those important people. As a young man, he is captured and taken back to Babylon and put in service for the king. God gave Daniel learn…
 
Israel has demanded to have a king over them who will lead them into battles so that they would look like the rest of the nations. God has told Israel that he is their king and he will lead them into battles like he has in the past. But the people do not want this. So God gives the people what they want. Saul is the kind of king the people want and…
 
Our biggest challenge is to open our eyes. I am not talking about opening our physical eyes but our spiritual eyes. Sometimes we can think that our greatest challenge is to change our lives. Often Christianity is pictured in this way. You need to change your life. But God tells us that he will change our lives if we will open our eyes. Life change …
 
The eighth chapter of 1 Samuel reveals the heart of the Israelites who want to be like the nations by having a king. They want a human king and not God to be their king. They want a human king to lead them into battles. They want a human king so that they can be like the nations. Though this is a rejection of God, God tells Samuel to give to them w…
 
We are starting a series of lessons called Hope For Facing Storms. We are going to spend the next few weeks looking at various scriptures that speak to how to handle trials and difficulties as well as how to just look at life during these kinds of days. We are going to begin by looking at the inexplicable love of God. One of the things we need most…
 
Chapter 7 of 1 Samuel records an amazing repentance. After 20 years of neglecting the Lord and his ark of the covenant, the people begin to lament for the Lord. Samuel calls for repentance and intercedes for the people. God responds by defeating the Philistines and giving the land peace from invading enemies. Samuel now judges Israel and it seems t…
 
It is a dark and horrifying scene that is painted for us in Genesis 6. Genesis 6:5 records that human wickedness is great on the earth. Everything they think or imagine is constantly and completely evil. The wickedness is so great that the Lord regrets making humans and he is deeply grieved (6:6). Verse 11 tells us that the earth is filled with vio…
 
Throughout the life of Israel, God allowed distressed and troubled times to try to cause Israel to see that they needed to turn back to the Lord. Prosperity typically keeps people from looking to God. So God would take away that prosperity and would allow his people to be oppressed so that they would turn their eyes upward. God returned to Israel a…
 
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your mi…
 
In our last lesson we saw the message about God needing to receive our honor. This truth is going to be exemplified beautifully in chapters 4-6 of 1 Samuel. So God is going to reveal his glory and teach us about how we are to look at God and approach God. Failed View (4:1-4) Chapter 4 opens with Israel preparing for battle against the Philistines. …
 
So we are going to take a break for a couple weeks from the sermon series that we have been doing where have been learning about who God and who we are in the book of Genesis. We will return to this series soon. However, with so much going on in the world today, it seemed appropriate for us to pivot our studies in Overflow and in Genesis so that we…
 
We noticed in the last lesson that hope surrounds the birth of Samuel. Hannah’s song speaks of hope in God who will reverse the condition of Israel, taking them from darkness to light, and from judgment to hope. The nation is wicked and there is need for a king who will rule in righteousness and turn the hearts of the people to God. We left the mid…
 
Our series, Who Is God and Who Are You, comes from the first 11 chapters of Genesis where God is revealing himself, explaining us, and telling us why the world is the way it is. Chapter 4 recorded the history of Cain and Abel, in particular, showing us that one of the reasons the world is a mess is because of anger left unchecked. Anger is dangerou…
