 (1 Samuel) Patching Things Up by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 19:1-10  
Description: Saul openly commands all his servants, including his own son Jonathan to kill David. Jonathan of course goes to David to warn him of his fathers intentions to have David killed, in this Jonathan submitted to the authority of the Lord more than the authority of his own father and king. The word of God instructs us to obey those in authority but when a command coms that is directly against the will of the Lord we must not obey as this would be sin. Jonathan defended David before Saul, just as the Lord Jesus defends us when Satan attacks and accuses us, sometimes correctly, but the Lord will not allow Satan to prevail over us so long as we are in His will. Jonathan gives a good account of David to Saul and Saul repents of the wrong that he wanted to do to David, Saul voowes that David shall not be kiled, which ironically was true as he wouldn't be killed by Saul. Then war returned to Israel and the evil spirit came upon Saul again and again he tried to kill David, this time David fled and did not return to the palace.

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 20:1-42  
Description: David goes to Jonathan and asks advise on why Saul, Jonathans father, wants to kill him. Jonathan desiring to help David offers him a deal that if Jonathan goes and asks Saul why he wants to kill David and discovers what his intentions are for David then David, when he becomes king of Israel, will not wipe out all the remaining memebers of Jonathans family. David agrees, so Jonathan heads of to Sauls monthly metting for his leaders and David stays in hiding, as David is abscent the first day Saul presumes he is unclean and thus cannot attend the feast, but Jonathan informs Saul that David has gone to a feast at his families house. Then when David doesn't turn up the second day Saul is enraged and demands to know where David is that he might kill him. Jonathan at that point knows full well the intentions of Sauls heart towards David and so goes to warn David in the way they have devised. Jonathan heads out into the field with a boy to take some target practice, Jonathan told David that when he fires the arrows that if he instructs the boy that they are near then David is safe but if he instructs the boy that they are far then David must knowing that the Lord has sent him away.

 (1 Samuel) David on the Decline by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 21 1-9, Leviticus 24:5-9  
Description: David is on the run from king Saul, he is afraid, hasnt eaten or slept properly for days, he is confused and had just had to bid farewell to his closest friend Jonathan, but it was here that the Lord would train David to be a king. David goes to the tabernacle of God at Nob, to Ahimelech the priest, this was th right thing to for David to do to go to the house of the Lord. But when he is asked what is going on by Ahimelech David lies to him several times in order to protect himself and maybe also Ahimelech from Saul. David asks the priest for food, and all that is available is the shew bread which was used in the tabernacle to symbolize how the Lord desires to have fellowship with us. So Ahimelech gives David the shewbread even though it was usually eaten by the priests, this shows that serving a human need is of greater importance than observing priestly traditions. Does the Edomite, a servant of Saul was there and witnessed what was happening. Finally David asks for a weapon from Ahimelech and he gioves him Goliaths sword, which David takes, the Lord was probably reminding David that the last time he held that sword he won a great victory as he was in the will of God and didn't need to resort to the flesh to deliver him.

 (1 Samuel) God Helps the Undeserving by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 21:10 - 22:1, Psalm 56, Psalm 34, Psalm 142  
Description: David, still on the run from Saul, heads to the Philistines to take refuge, and ends up in Gath the hometown of Goliath! This was a very strange thing for David to do as he has also killed thousands of Philistines, as well as Goliath. So David is captured by them and imprisoned. David knowing he has done wrong does the right thing and cries out to God, this is when he wrote Psalm 56 and it can be seen in this Psalm how David's heart is turned back to the Lord as he cries out for mercy. He is then brought before Achish the king, David pretends to be mad which must have taken great humility to act that way before his enemies so Achish releases David and on his way from Gath David praises the Lord mightily, Psalm 34. The Lord showed His love to David even though David did not deserve it, which shows the great love and mercy of God. David then heads for the cave of Adullam from which you can see the valley where David slew Goliath and David lamented and wrote Palm 142.

 (1 Samuel) God’s Idea of a Team by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 22 Psalm 52, Ruth 4:17  
Description: David is know in hiding in the cave of Adullam, he's tired and afraid and doesn't know what to do, but he cries out to the Lord and the Lord meets his every need. Th ifrst thing the Lord did was to give David Himkself, and David was filled with a great sense of the Lord's power and glory. The second thing the Lord gave to David was the support of his family, who in times past had been harsh towards David. Then the Lord brough the needy and discouraged to David, and he became their leader, he took care of his parents by taking them to the Moabites, who were David's ancestors. King saul in the meentime is plotting against David and accusing all his military commanders of being against him, one steps forward, Doeg the Edomite and informs Saul that he saw David being helped by Ahimelech the priest, Sauls is furiuos and goes to Ahuimelech and accueses him of aiding the enemies of the king, Ahimelech had no idea that David was on the run from Saul due to Davids lies, but Saul didn't care and commanded all the priests and their families to be slaughtered, Sauls servants wouldn't do it but Doeg would and massacred a great number of people, when David heard of this he mourned and wrote Psalm 52.

 (1 Samuel) How to Get an Answer from God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 23:1-13  
Description: David is told to go to the city of Keilah, because the Philistines are attacking it. So David enquires of the Lord what he souls do and the Lord tells him to go, David's men however dont want to go as they are afraid, so David enquires of the Lord a second time, and the Lord tells him to go to Keilah and he will deliver the Philistines into his hand. Saul hears that David is on his way to Keilah and seizes the chance to capture David, so he assembles the armies of Israel to attack David and his band of men. David then enquires of the Lord again as to whether the people of Keilah will deliver him into the hand of Saul and the Lord tells David that they will, this is probably due to the fact that previously Saul had had a whole town wiped out for not delivering David to him. David therefore humbles himself and retreats, even though he coudl have probably fought Saul and maybe killed him, again David left him to the Lord, and diverted needless slaughter from another place.

 (1 Samuel) Strengthening Your Hand In God by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 23:14-29, Psalm 54  
Description: Saul was obsessed with capturing David and sought him daily but the Lord delievered David out of the hand of Saul every time. David was oppressed in the heart of his trial so the Lord sent Jonathan to him to strenthen him. Jonathan remind David of the Lord's promises to him how David will be king of Israel and that even Saul knows this, but Jonathan goes to far in what he is saying to David and says that he will be next to David when he is king, this sadly wouldn't come to pass as Jonathan would be killed in battle beofre David even came to the throne. When Jonathan leaves David the Ziphites go and betray David into the hand of Saul, it was then that David wrote Psalm 54 and as seen in the psalm David puts his whole trust in the Lord and his heart is filled with praise to God. Sauls army is just about to encircle David when a messanger comes to Saul and informs him that the philistines are invading and the Israel is under attack so Saul has to leave off from David and defend Israel.

 (1 Samuel) How NOT to Respond to an Insult by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 25:1-22  
Description: Samuel the prophet and last judge of Israel dies at the beginning of this chapter and all Israel laments his passing, it is notable that he probably recveived more appreciation when he died than when he was alive.
There was a man of Carmel whose name was Nabal (which in the hebrew means fool) and he was a rich and very successful sheep farmer, and he had a wifie, Abigail, who was very beautiful and wise and completely different to Nabal. David and his men had been protecting Nabal and his possessions for some time from bands of marauders and theives, and so when the sheep shearing season started, which was the best and most prosperous time of the year, David requests a gift from Nabal for services rendered, Nabal not only says no but 'no' in the most insulting way possible, and when David hears of this he is enraged and vows to kill Nabal and al his household. Now when Abigail hears what Nabal has done she collects as much food as she can and heads out to meet David knowing he is intent on massacre.

 (1 Samuel) What Submission Is and Is Not by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 25:23-44  
Description: David is on his way to Nabals house to massacre everone there when, suddenyl a woman leading a large company meets him on his way, she gets off her mount and bows herself down to the ground before him, this is quite a surprise for David as Abigail was a woman of great status and so to see her humbling herself in this way is very odd. She asks David for mercy and to lay the blame on herself, she reminds David that he is the one who goes out and fights the Lord's battles, this must have pricked Davids heart as he surely knew that what he was intending to do was not in the heart of the Lord, David by the grace of God realises what he is doing and departs praising the Lord for sending Abigail. Nabal on the other hand is totally unaware of what could have happened and is throwing a party when Abigail returns, the morning after she tells him of the previous days events and he is so shocked that he dies 10 days later. David sends fo Abigail and takes her and Ahinoam for his wives as Sauls daughter had been given to someone else.

 (1 Samuel) Discouraged and Running Away by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 27  
Description: David was disparing that one day Saul would kill him and so made up his mind to escape, leave the people of God and go and live amongst the ungodly Philistines. t this point David was so low that he had forgotten the promises of the Lord towards him how he would one day be king and that Saul would not take his life. However David did not go alone to Gath in Philistia but took all his men and their families with him, so much depends upon godly leaders walking with the Lord that when they depart from the way many folow them. David goes to the king of Gath and asks for a city to dwell in and the king gives him Ziklag, for this David declared himself to be a servant of the king, what a sad time this must have been, that the champion of the armies of Israel was now the servant of the king of the philistines. During this time David leared to play the instrument of Gath as ssen in the titels of Psalm 8, 84 and 87 but he didn't write any Psalms to the Lord during this time, sadly he became a marauder and attacked cities and robbed their dead.

 (1 Samuel) When God Won’t Talk to You by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 28  
Description: The Philistines again attack Israel in a very aggresive way, reaching right into the heart of the land. So Saul not knowing what to do goes to enquire of the Lord, but the Lord wouldn't answer him either by dreams, Urim or prophets, this is because Saul had been in open rebellion to the Lord for years now andhad departed from Him. So Saul panics and seeks a medium who would give him advice. So the servants of Saul tell him of a woman in Endor, so Saul disguises himself and goes to her and asks her to bring up Samuel the prophet from the dead, and when Samuel comes the medium is terrified and realises who Saul is. Samuel asks Saul why he has brought him up and Saul says that the Lord has departed from him, when really Saul had departed from the Lord, and he doesn't know what to do, but Samuel reminds Saul that the Lord had promised to tear the kingdom out of his hands and that is just what is going to happen because the time that had elapsed had not atoned for Saul's sin. So Samuel tells Saul that the day after he would die and gave Saul one last chance to repent, but he didn't.

 (1 Samuel) How to Be Free From Bitterness by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Samuel 31  
Description: The final day of king Sauls life finally arrives, the day the Lord warned him about probably 15-20 years before, Saul goes into battle with the armies of Israel against the Philistines. The battle goes very badly for Saul and he finds himself in the heat of the fight due to his army retreating, Saul sons including Jonathan Davids close beloved friend are killed and Saul is pierced with arrows. Knowing that he is going to die he asks his armour bearer to kill him so that he will not be captured and ridiculed by the philistines, but his amrour bearer doesn't and so Saul falls upon his own sword and takes his own life, even here on the last day of his life knowing how soon he will stand before almighty God Saul doesn't repent. The people of Israel in the surrounding area hear of what has happened and abandon their homes and flee. The Philistines take Sauls body and cut off his head and use it as a grisly trophy to show their victory. But the men of Jabesh Gilead go to the city where the philistines have chained up the bodies of Saul and his sons and take them back and give them proper burial and mourne for the loss. David mourns when he hears that his king has been killed he shows no bitterness or rejoicing but calls Saul the beauty of Israel.

 Attaining Immortality by Robert B. Thompson

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Corinthians 15:12-26, 1 Samuel 28:11, Matthew 27:52  
Description: Dr. Thompson presents a very thorough, fascinating case for focusing our hope on the resurrection of the body instead of the ascension (rapture). He discusses why it is so important that we are raised from the dead, and how focusing on ‘gaining entrance heaven’ is actually counterproductive, since it bypasses the very heart of God and His grand plan.
