Luke 1:26-38 - God Breaks In

This passage Marry receives the message that she will give birth to the Creator of the world - Jesus. One can ask 2 basic questions in this passage: 1) How did God break into this world because he exists seperate from this world, and 2) Who is this God who breaks into this world? The reader realizes from the start that God inpregnates marry by the Holy Spirit to provide a sinless human nature for Christ as well as the right linage to the throne of David. The God who breaks in is Christ Jesus and is the savior of all mankind. The amazing thing about this miracle is that God breaks in to save sinners who are in rebellion from Him. This even call the incarnation is truely an intersection of grace and mercy in God's plan of remption.

2 Samuel 17 - God's Kingdom Cannot Fail

In the 17th Chapter of 2 Samuel we are drawn into the espionage and the ntelligence reporting of Hushai of Ahithophel's plan to destroy David and his followers. Like the main theme of the book we see God sovereignty over the choices and affairs of me when the inspired writer in vese 14 reveals to us that God Himself had ordained (willed, chosen) to defeat the counsel of Ahithophel so that He might bring harm upon Absalom. If you are a christian you can take confort in the will of God by 1) understanding the different meanings for "will of God," 2) seeing every event of your life as a comonent of God providential plan, 3) beliving that God in pursuing His glory is also pursuing your greatest good. We see examples of God's providential destruction of Ahithophel, protection of the informate priests (Jonathan and Ahimaaz), and the provision for David and his mighty men. Without a belief in the sovereign and providential hand of God, no one would have any confort in this life or the next. Listen and be prepared to praise God almighty!

2 Samuel 16 - In the Presence of My enemies

In fleeing from Absalom Daid meets 3 enemies that want to harm David (Zibah, Shimei, and Ahithophel). Through out these narratives David maintains peace and shows us that even in the case of maniptuation (Zibah), cursing (Shimei), and betrayal (Ahithophel) that looking at all event from God's point of view and seeing them as a component of God sovereign plan helps us to have supernatural peace.

2 Sameul 15 - The Politics of Impatience

Absalom leads a consiracy to take over the throne of Israel from David by becoming impatienct with God and his will. His Scheme seems to work as David decides to feel Jerusalem. The Author brings out the teme of impatience with God in this chapter through the following contrasts: 1) a Me-First Strategy vs. a Humble Strategy, 2) Godless Ambition vs. Self Sacrifice, 3) Rebellion vs. Submission, and 4) a Selfish Perspective vs. a Honest Perspective. One will learn that being impatient with God is like catching a knife on the wrong end - it will hurt. Like David Jesus crossed the Brook of Kidron to pray and accept the will of God. Are you more like Absalom or David and Ittai when it comes to your trust in the will of God? Listen and find out.
