Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 1:34


1:34 Anoint - As they used to do where there was any thing new orextraordinary in the succession. And this unction signified both thedesignation of the persons to the office, and the gifts and graces whichwere necessary for their office, and which, they, seeking them sincerelyfrom God, might expect to receive.

    "And Solomon said, If he will shew himself a worthy man, there shall not an hair of him fall to the earth: but if wickedness shall be found in him, he shall die." We may see here in Solomon a type of Christ, when He shall come into His kingdom. The men who have conspired to exalt themselves instead of the Word of God, shall be brought to naught; and the earth will rejoice because of the KING!

    Verse 1 reminds me of how a lot of older people stay cold. I can imagine David's children and grandchildren trying to help him keep warm.

    Don't we all want to be more Christ like on a daily basis,be His servant,and our lives for Him

    Delta; it was NOT an "apple" and it WAS disobedience! One thing is clear throughout the Bible, as well as in each of our own lives; is that God is fair and kind and gentle with us, with all our propensity to evil. Sin also is like a Pandora's Box, and increases to worse in the one who is captured in it. Jesus' blood cleanses us from all sin, and His work on the cross breaks its power over us. AMEN

    The apple - the Bible does not say it was any particular fruit. A thought came to me as I began this: the Bible says we 'eat' His word; just - what if Adam 'n Eve had some form of something to read (please don't jump all over me; I'm just 'musing' here; I am not changing any scriptures); I admit this is really a -- s-t-r-e-t-c-h. It could have been literal fruit.

    I wouldn't say that Adam was wicked for eating the apple. God told Adam to eat from any tree in the garden except the tree of Good and Evil. Adam was deceived by his wife Eve who convinced him to eat the apple. I believed that is how the world had to be to show the disobedience of man all because of Adam sin. Thank God Jesus came to died for our sins so that we might have life more abundantly.
