Hello, God has given me something in 2 Samuel 20:19-21 which says,
“I am one of those who are peaceable and faithful in Israel. You seek to destroy a city that is a mother in Israel. Why will you swallow up the heritage of the LORD?” Joab answered, “Far be it from me, far be it, that I should swallow up or destroy! That is not true. But a man of the hill country of Ephraim, called Sheba the son of Bichri, has lifted up his hand against King David. Give up him alone, and I will withdraw from the city.” And the woman said to Joab, “Behold, his head shall be thrown to you over the wall.”
So, what God has given me, is, that Sheba is a picture of Jesus right now, not that he was perfect (not that Sheba is perfect, of course Jesus was (and is) perfect), but because he had sinned (Jesus took our sin, making Him look like He had sinned even though He hadn’t), and was about to be killed, at the cross, because Jesus had all our sin, He looked (in the eye’s of God) sinful, (even though Jesus never did sin, never has sinned, and never will sin) sinful, the people killed Jesus, and God had that happen to that we could be saved! Well Sheba had sinned (of course) and David’s men (and Joab) wanted to kill him, so they talk to this wise woman, and she’s telling them that they are disrupting the peace, so Joab says ‘That’s not what I want to do, not at all, there is a guy sinning against the king, and we want to kill him’ so the woman tells him that the people will kill him, and that Joab will have his head.
Sometimes is the weak and the elderly that can do great things, in this case, she was able to help Joab help the king, she served the king greatly (not saying we should kill anybody, please do NOT kill anyone), so the weak and the elderly help build up the kingdom of God, they serve Christ, and I’m not trying to get people to work, no, I’m saying that younger people shouldn’t look down on others, because they can accomplish more, Jesus died for us ALL, not only the young people, but EVERYONE! Jesus died on the cross, with ALL OF OUR SINS, for EVERYONE, in ALL OF OUR PLACES, Jesus was enough for EVERYONE’S sins, times ten.
This is a shadow (ONLY A SHADOW) of 1 Corinthians where the man was put out of the church, the put to death Sheba, and this is why it is a shadow, we should not put to death those who have sin issues, other-wise we’d all be dead, but we should put some people (like the man in 1 Corinthians) out of the church, and if they repent of their sins, Paul says that we forgive them, and let them into the church again. WE DO NOT KILL THOSE WHO HAVE SIN ISSUES!!! Because JESUS ALREADY DIED IN OUR PLACE!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!!! Do you remember the four simple words from my last post? YOU SHALL NOT DIE, those four simple words aplly to all who love Jesus, and fully trust that Jesus died on the cross in our place.
Jesus died on the cross in our place, those four simple words “You shall not die.” are what God said to us at the cross, He crucified His perfect, holy, wonderful, almighty, righteous, never did a sin in the world, Son, for us sinful wretches that didn’t even deserve to live. But Jesus did die on the cross in our place, taking our sins, and infirmity’s, and all the things we did wrong, and gave us his perfectness, hollieness, wonderfulness, and righteousness, and now we have every right to live, because Jesus gave His life for us.
Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross for us, and that we are forgiven of our sins?
