    pondering on the life of David . He seemed to have been a troubled man who was surrounded by confused persons and was torn between good and evil. he had a mixed up family but yet he always cried out for mercy. do you think david was truly repentant. tha is a question i have even reading the psalms

    Acts 2 is speaking of Christ whos soul was not left in hell neither did his body see corruption...But it was spoken by David so many folks thought it was David's soul that was not left in hell nor his body wd see corruption...Which opens the Door for other prophysies about Christ/David ...And Solomon/ H.G....The Comforter.

    Amen, Brother Alex:

    As you pointed out our people believe the words in the Psalms are the words of David; instead of believing they are THE WORD'S OF CHRIST.

    2 Samuel 23:1 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raised up on high (CHOSEN for GOD'S WORKS), the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel SAID,

    2 Samuel 23:2 THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD SPAKE BY ME, an his word (CHRIST IS THE WORD) was in my tongue.

    God Bless You!

    I think this David & Bathesheba thing is so prophetic of Christ and the early Church...The early Church had a husband which was the law but she had a relationship with Christ that resulted in a child called Christianity...But early Christianity was sick and died in its infancy as there is no more original Christianity...But as David and Bathsheba travailed again and it was this 2 nd Child that God wanted to build the great temple... Rev 12 : 5 kjv..She brought forth a man Child that is gonna rule all nations...My lil Children of whom i travail in birth AGAIN till Christ is formed in you...The H.G. is the 2 nd Child...And more importantly the Child of Promise...The multiplication of Christ in humanity...That was the great Promise...Thats y Paul is saying you are dead to the law ( Uriah ) by the body of Christ that you should be MARRIED to another even Christ and bring forth fruit unto God... Romans 7 : 4 KJV

    David was a great man of God a type of Christ...When God told David sit thou at my right hand till i make your enemies your footstool..Thats prophetic of Christ that is gonna make ALL ALL of his enemies his footstool...Which is our carnal minds...Mankinds Adamic nature. Which is in rank with satan...As God makes the rain and the SUN to shine on everybody...On the mount when they saw him his Raiment was white as snow...Thats us whos sins are as scarlet but shall be made white as snow...We are his raiment thats y he says i was naked and you clothe me...gbu....AND ABIDE IN ME AND I IN YOU.

    Dear Enid

    Sometimes we have a wrong impression of God's people mentioned in the Bible. We think that they are invulnerable like robots or angels or they should be like that. But they were ordinary people like me and you. Having the same passions, struggles, failures, good and bad times, their up and downs just like everybody else in the world. Just like us. What made them exceptional is that they regreted and repented for what they had done and went back to God to be forgiven. Of course one has to be very careful not to fail but we are sand/soil and will eventually fail sometime badly or less badly.(hopefully not that bad).The Bible gives a true description of their personalities. Not like biographies written by men for some great men in the world that idealize them and write nothing about their errors. David was one of them. Sure he has done things that hatdly anybody does. But he was a man after God's heart because he was always ready to admit his errors/failures and repent. Not like Adam who tried to justify him by blaming Eve. And don't forget that he was severely punished by God sometimes, and also he was not allowed to build a temple for God as his son Solomon did .All those people, good or bad, are examples for us now for what to do and what not to do.

    Hello Enid.

    Yes, It is said of David that he was a man after God's own heart. From reading the account of his life, it seems that he was a man who sinned like all of us, but came to God repentantly for mercy regularly. He was a devout believer in God. Scripture, on the whole speaks well of David.
