I heard a devout Christian say in defense of President Trump that he’s just a man just like King David which was accounted to him as a man after God’s own heart.
Really? You would compare those two? That makes me want to throw up as much as saying Jesus Christ and His followers were sexually intimate with one another.
I tell you what, I will tell you the things that I know are true of David that God would call him a man after His own heart and you tell me anything that compares, because, fellow Christians of all you have to compare with is the sexual side of David, we the bride really need to look inward and question our motives, our responsibilities, our character….. We need to question everything as to how do we personally compare with the Character of God.
David, when he was a boy was considered the least of his brothers.
He tended the sheep, he watched after the sheep, he protected the sheep with his life. He was willing to die to protect his father’s sheep.
While out in the fields he sang to God out of his own heart, making music before the Lord and inventing musical instruments.
He chose God.
He fasted before the Lord and He sought the Lord before he made any major decisions.
I heard one preacher say it was because he was quick to repent. He was but that didn’t make him a man after God’s own heart.
David sought God’s heart day and night, but that didn’t make him a man after God’s own heart.
When King Saul went to relieve himself and David had the opportunity to end it with Saul, but he didn’t because Saul, as far as David was concerned, was God’s anointed. David respected the covenants of God.
David was respectful.
All of these things are characteristics of God and are honorable. They should be characteristics of all God’s children, but none of these characteristics are what gave him the title of, “A man after God’s own heart.”
Our Father God, the Great Jehovah, looks upon His creation, His Children with great love. It is a love that as humans, you and I can not fathom. It is beyond our reach.
Everything He made He created for His joy, His delight. We were created out of love.
I was writing a story called, The Father’s Heart” and it was totally inspired by the Holy Spirit.
His Spirit gave me this reference;
2 Samuel 18…. If you back up a few chapters you will see the contempt, the cause, the murders, the betrayals…. You will see Absalom attempting to overthrow and take over David’s Kingdom.
There was war and in the last phase of battle, Joab convinced David not to go into battle with his men. King David gave this command and all heard it, “Do not harm the young man Absalom.”
As I read on I was struck to the core at what I saw.
One of David’s commander and chief took it upon himself to take Absalom’s life. There is a whole sermon in this alone. Joab took three daggers to kill him, then 10 of Joab’s men took a stab at him.
Bible gateway chapter 18;
33 The king was shaken. He went up to the room over the gateway and wept. As he went, he said: “O my son Absalom! My son, my son Absalom! If only I had died in stead of you—O Absalom, my son, my son!”[g]
This, THIS IS WHY GOD CALLED DAVID A MAN AFTER HIS OWN HEART.
He would have rather died himself that to have this judgement upon his son.
Also, no matter what Absalom had done, he still called him son.
….. Trump, really.
I know the scripture says to pray for those in charge, this is the best I can do.
Father, the world has chosen a godless man over You. Your Bride’s gown is filthy and tattered. Your righteous leaders are silenced and the evil one speaks. I pray dear God with all of my heart, show me what to do, tell me what to say.
In Jesus’s Name I pray that the anointing of forgiveness abound. I pray that Spirit of Repentance abound. I pray that the Spirits of Wisdom and knowledge increase as understanding spreads. I pray that the True Light shine and that your people who are called by Your Name will turn and Give You Praise. You are the manna, You O Lord are my daily Bread. You are the beginning and the end. All heaven and earth answers to You. May Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.
In Christ Jesus name I pray. So be it.
