Perhaps one your greatest fears is that all your deepest, darkest sins were exposed. What would it be like if someone hacked your Facebook account and over the next 24 hours posted nothing but your sins for everyone to see (complete with video clips and everything)? All of your wicked actions, all of your despicable thoughts, all of your anger, your lust, your pride and arrogance, posted for all of your friends to see. No sin left unseen. How would you respond to such an act? How would you try to cope with the humiliation and shame? Would you try to lie and say it was not true? Would you make excuses and try to lessen the damage? Would you change your name and head for the hills? What would it be like for your worse sins to be exposed for all to see?

Godís promise to David is incredible. He tells him that he will have a kingdom that will last forever. He promises that Davidís name will be great (7:9b), that Israel will have a place to dwell (7:10-11a), and that David will have rest from all his enemies (7:11b). Even though it was David that wanted to build God a house of cedar, God tells David that He is going to build David a house, a forever dynasty (7:12-16). These are all amazing promises from the Lord, which are ultimately fulfilled with the person and work of Jesus. He is the Forever King born in the line of David. Through His death and resurrection He established the Forever Kingdom, so that all who turn from their sins and believe in Him will be forgiven and live forever with Him.

Many consider Godís covenant with David found in 2 Samuel 7 to be one of the most important passages in the entire Old Testament. One of my commentatorís writes: ďThe Lordís words recorded here arguable play the single most significant role of any Scripture found in the Old Testament in shaping the Christian understanding of Jesus.Ē1 He goes on to highlight seven teachings about Jesus that find their foundation in this passage. The prophets will point to this text as they write about the Messianic hope to come and the New Testament writers will continually point back to Godís covenant with David as a promise for the coming of Jesus, the greater Son of David. So this morning, I want to slow down a bit and just look at the first seventeen verses of 2 Samuel 7.

Some events take forever to come to pass. We wait on them, we anticipate them, and yet, they still donít happen. If they werenít so important, we might be tempted to just give up. Marriage felt like that for me. The adoption of our second son was similar. I believed both events would eventually come to pass, but it seem like they took forever.

THE LORD ESTABLISHES HIS ANOINTED

Most human thrones are taken either by sword or succession. At times, the king dies and the kingdom is passed on to his son (or daughter). But other times, an individual who is not in the family decides to take the kingdom by force. Sometimes this even happens within the family, with different members fighting for power. Of course, how a king comes to power can determine how loyal the subjects will or will not be. A throne that is taken by force can often be rejected by the people. Normally this will lead to even more bloodshed.

1 Samuel 27-31: The Greatest Tragedy Print E-mail

Tragedy is a common part of the human experience. Bad things happen to everyone. Artists have been capitalizing on this fact for thousands of years. Shakespeare wrote plays where everyone dies in the end and people love them. Sad songs written in minor keys are just as popular today as they have always been. Because of our common experience with tragedy (the loss of health, the futility of life and work, the death of a loved one) we all can sympathize with the art of tragedy. It appeals to the masses because the masses have experienced such loss. In fact, we often scoff at happy endings because they feel so foreign to us. Why is tragedy so common? The Bible answers: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We suffer because we have sinned. So then the question is not who will suffer, but how will we respond to tragedy when it comes?
