1 David... 2 Sam 12: Then Nathan said to David, "You are the man! Thus says the Lord God of Israel: 'I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. 8 I gave you your master's house and your master's wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more! 9 Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.
3 David and Uriah
4 Ps 51:5-6 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. 6 Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom. Ps 51:14 14 Deliver me from the guilt of bloodshed, O God, The God of my salvation, And my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.
5 David and the Story Continues... Oh what a tangled web we weave when at first we practice to deceive. Walter Scott The web only becomes more complicated and entangling as David grows older Review God s word to David
6 2 Sam 12:7-15 Then Nathan said to David, "You are the man! Thus says the Lord God of Israel: 'I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul.
7 8 I gave you your master's house and your master's wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if that had been too little, I also would have given you much more! 9 Why have you despised the commandment of the Lord, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon. 10 Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.
8 11 Thus says the Lord : 'Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor He shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun.
9 David For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.
10 Amnon and Tamar 1 Sam 13:1 21 Amnon the half brother to Tamar plots to take her... (Jonadab) She was Absalom s sister
11 2 Sam 13:1-4 After this Absalom the son of David had a lovely sister, whose name was Tamar; and Amnon the son of David loved her. 2 Amnon was so distressed over his sister Tamar that he became sick; for she was a virgin. And it was improper for Amnon to do anything to her. 3 But Amnon had a friend whose name was Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David's brother. Now Jonadab was a very crafty man. 4 And he said to him, "Why are you, the king's son, becoming thinner day after day? Will you not tell me? Amnon said to him, "I love Tamar, my brother Absalom's sister."
12 Amnon... Pretends to be sick This is not the practice of a first time offender Absalom evidently knew the character of Amnon...
13 Amnon... David did nothing... Choice 2 Tim 2:17 And their message will spread like cancer. Hymenaeus and Philetus are of this sort, 18 who have strayed concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection is already past; and they overthrow the faith of some.
14 Gal 5:7-15 You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump. 10 I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is.
15 11 And I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why do I still suffer persecution? Then the offense of the cross has ceased. 12 I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off! 13 For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
16 14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." * 15 But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!
17 David and the Story Continues... Clearly any sin has consequences... Whatever sin that is not dealt with will greater affect The longer sin festers the larger the consequences
18 David and the Story Continues... Problems do not divide churches in the beginning Causes hurt feelings Shcism
19 David and the Story Continues... 1 Cor 12:24-26 But God composed the body, having given greater honor to that part which lacks it, 25 that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another. 26 And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it.
20 David and the Story Continues the condition of being divided because of conflicting aims or objectives, division, dissension, schism fig. equivalent is expressed in terms of ATTITUDES, for example, 'to cause people to be angry at one another' or 'to cause people not to like one another' or 'to cause people to think of one another as enemies.'
21 David and the Story Continues... 1 Cor 1:10-11 Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11 For it has been declared to me concerning you, my brethren, by those of Chloe's household, that there are contentions among you.
22 David and the Story Continues... 1 Cor 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still carnal. For where there are envy, strife, and divisions among you, are you not carnal and behaving like mere men?
23 Amnon and Tamar 1 Sam 13:1 21 Absalom
24 2 Sam 13:23-28 And it came to pass, after two full years, that Absalom had sheepshearers in Baal Hazor, which is near Ephraim; so Absalom invited all the king's sons. 24 Then Absalom came to the king and said, "Kindly note, your servant has sheepshearers; please, let the king and his servants go with your servant." 25 But the king said to Absalom, "No, my son, let us not all go now, lest we be a burden to you." Then he urged him, but he would not go; and he blessed him.
25 26 Then Absalom said, "If not, please let my brother Amnon go with us. And the king said to him, "Why should he go with you?" 27 But Absalom urged him; so he let Amnon and all the king's sons go with him.
26 28 Now Absalom had commanded his servants, saying, "Watch now, when Amnon's heart is merry with wine, and when I say to you, 'Strike Amnon!' then kill him. Do not be afraid. Have I not commanded you? Be courageous and valiant.
27 2 Sam 13:30-33 And it came to pass, while they were on the way, that news came to David, saying, "Absalom has killed all the king's sons, and not one of them is left!" 31 So the king arose and tore his garments and lay on the ground, and all his servants stood by with their clothes torn. 32 Then Jonadab the son of Shimeah, David's brother, answered and said, "Let not my lord suppose they have killed all the young men, the king's sons, for only Amnon is dead. For by the command of Absalom this has been determined from the day that he forced his sister Tamar.
28 Absalom runs David and Absalom away... What does David do...
29 David and Absalom 2 Sam 13:37-39 So Absalom fled... three years. 39 And King David * longed to go to * Absalom...
30 David and the Story Continues... Jude But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit, 21 keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. 22 And on some have compassion, making a distinction; * 23 but others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire, * hating even the garment defiled by the flesh.
