Msg #1718 A Disturbing Type of ManWhat The Bible SaysGood Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed RiceWhile David as a type of Christ is invigorating, David as a type for man is disheartening. When Nathan, the prophet of God, portrayed a man's thoughtless, selfish, injustice “David's anger was greatly kindled against the man” (2Samuel 12:5). Someone else's sin comes into instant focus. “As the LORD liveth the man shall surely die. And he shall restore the lamb four-fold... because he had no pity.” God's anger against David's sin was no less. The death penalty was passed to David's child of adultery, and the four-fold price was paid as God said, “Behold I will rise up evil against thee out of thine own house.” Evil in our own house is an awful price for ones selfish sin. In the next chapter David's daughter, Tamar was raped by her half brother, her rapist, Amnon was murdered by David's son Absalom, and Absalom was exiled and banished from his father. “And David mourned for his son every day.” After this three-fold payment  in one chapter David is tricked into bringing his exiled son home. David's enemies could never topple his kingdom, but Absalom did. “Aba” - Hebrew for “father” and “shalome” - Hebrew for “peace” combine in the name of “Absalom” who brought his father not peace but war, because of sin. “Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight?... by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme.” God hates man's sin, because sin will take you farther than you want to go, sin will keep you longer than you want to stay, and sin will cost you more than you want to pay. Sin has dire consequence.  Learn some valuable lessons from David, teach them to our children.An Essay for week #18 Apr 30, 2017Msg  in audio at www.GSBaptistChurch.com/audio/gs170430.mp3Msg in your weekly email, visit us at www.GSBaptistChurch.com==============================================Our mailing address is:Good Samaritan Baptist Church54 Main St. Box 99Dresden, NY 14441USAOur telephone:315-521-3466Forward this email to a friend:http://us7.forward-to-friend1.com/forward?u=8c119856e8ee62e75a677c310&id=40a6163269&e=d79ad3393fUpdate your profile:http://GSBaptistChurch.us7.list-manage.com/profile?u=8c119856e8ee62e75a677c310&id=b1eac5a7f8&e=d79ad3393f
