1 800 SE Hogan Road Gresham, OR The Gospel According to the Ark of God: We need the of God God is holy and wants a relationship on God s terms are to from and Receiving the His May 3, 2015 King David and the Ark Preached by Jay Messenger 2 Samuel 6: 1-23 of God is the path to SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT 1. How does David demonstrate his deep desire for the presence of God? 2. What are some things that keep us from desiring God s presence? What do we substitute for Him? What are things that can dull our senses or make us complacent about being with Him? 3. Explain how God s holiness impacts our relationship with Him how can this be misunderstood to mean that God wants nothing to do with us? How do His actions in this story (and eventually sending Jesus to the cross to die for our sins) demonstrate how badly He wants to be with us? 4. Explain what God s terms/conditions for relationship with us are so radically different from religion how does God deal with our brokenness/ sin? Do we deserve what He does for us? How does He show David grace in this story? How does He show us grace? 5. What are some examples of God s grace in this story? How was His grace revealed in the judgement of Uzzah? (hint how many ordinances regarding the Ark were being violated before God took action Exodus 25:15; Numbers 4:5-6; 15; 1 Chronicles 15:13-15). 6. Respond to the statement things sometimes get worse before they get better when it comes to owning and repenting of our sin. Can you think of examples? Why is this a necessary step in order for us to turn away from sin and turn to God? 7. Read 2 Samuel 6: How did David respond when he saw another receiving the blessing of God? Do you desire the blessings of God in the same way? Why or why not? 8. Explain why the blessings of God are the path to true joy. How can you receive and respond to the blessings of God in your life? (Hint How does thankfulness, understanding what Jesus has given you through His life, etc. help this happen?) 9. What can you worship God for in your life right now? How has He show His goodness and grace to you? Fill in the Blank Key 1. Presence 2. Holy 3. His terms 4. Repent 5. Brokenness 6. Receive 7. Blessings 8. Blessings 9.

5 The Ark

6 1 David again brought together all the able young men of Israel thirty thousand. 2 He and all his men went to Baalah in Judah to bring up from there the ark of God, which is called by the Name, the name of the LORD Almighty, who is enthroned between the cherubim on the ark. 2 Samuel 6:1-5

7 3 They set the ark of God on a new cart and brought it from the house of Abinadab, which was on the hill. Uzzah and Ahio, sons of Abinadab, were guiding the new cart 4 with the ark of God on it, and Ahio was walking in front of it. 5 David and all Israel were celebrating with all their might before the LORD, with castanets, harps, lyres, timbrels, sistrums and cymbals. 2 Samuel 6:1-5

8 We need the presence of God

9 3 Let us bring the ark of our God back to us, for we did not inquire of it during the reign of Saul. 1 Chronicles 13:3

10 6 When they came to the threshing floor of Nakon, Uzzah reached out and took hold of the ark of God, because the oxen stumbled. 7 The LORD s anger burned against Uzzah because of his irreverent act; therefore God struck him down, and he died there beside the ark of God. 2 Samuel 6:6-10

11 8 Then David was angry because the LORD s wrath had broken out against Uzzah, and to this day that place is called Perez Uzzah. 9 David was afraid of the LORD that day and said, How can the ark of the LORD ever come to me? 10 He was not willing to take the ark of the LORD to be with him in the City of David. Instead, he took it to the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite. 2 Samuel 6:6-10

12 We need the presence of God God is holy and wants a relationship on His terms

13 11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the LORD blessed him and his entire household. 12 Now King David was told, The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God. So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing. 2 Samuel 6:11-15

14 13 When those who were carrying the ark of the LORD had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 14 Wearing a linen ephod, David was dancing before the LORD with all his might, 15 while he and all Israel were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts and the sound of trumpets. 2 Samuel 6:11-15

15 We need the presence of God God is holy and wants a relationship on His terms God s terms are to repent from brokenness and receive His blessings

16 11 The ark of the LORD remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months, and the LORD blessed him and his entire household. 12 Now King David was told, The LORD has blessed the household of Obed-Edom and everything he has, because of the ark of God. So David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-Edom to the City of David with rejoicing. 2 Samuel 6:11-12

17 13 When those who were carrying the ark of the LORD had taken six steps, he sacrificed a bull and a fattened calf. 2 Samuel 6:14

18 16 As the ark of the LORD was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD, she despised him in her heart. 2 Samuel 6:16-23

19 17 They brought the ark of the LORD and set it in its place inside the tent that David had pitched for it, and David sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings before the LORD. 18 After he had finished sacrificing the burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD Almighty. 2 Samuel 6:16-23

20 19 Then he gave a loaf of bread, a cake of dates and a cake of raisins to each person in the whole crowd of Israelites, both men and women. And all the people went to their homes. 20 When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, 2 Samuel 6:16-23

21 How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, going around half-naked in full view of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would! 21 David said to Michal, It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the LORD s people Israel I will celebrate before the LORD. 2 Samuel 6:16-23

22 22 I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor. 23 And Michal daughter of Saul had no children to the day of her death. 2 Samuel 6:16-23

23 We need the presence of God God is holy and wants a relationship on His terms God s terms are to repent from brokenness and receive His blessings Receiving the blessings of God is the path to joy

24 21 David said to Michal, It was before the LORD, who chose me rather than your father or anyone from his house when he appointed me ruler over the LORD s people Israel I will celebrate before the LORD. 2 Samuel 6:21

25

26 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. John 15:16

27 We need the presence of God God is holy and wants a relationship on His terms God s terms are to repent from brokenness and receive His blessings Receiving the blessings of God is the path to joy
