WHEN LOVE IS LOST (5).

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*WHEN LOVE IS LOST (5).*


*Scripture Treasure.*

2 Sam 15:30 *And David went up by the ascent of mount Olivet, and wept as he went up, and had his head covered, and he went barefoot: and all the people that was with him covered every man his head, and they went up, weeping as they went up.*


*Insight and Highlight.*

Lust will naked the well clothed.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

David suffered a life mingled with shame and sorrow.

Every day was marked with God's indignation. Every day was filled with horror.

When he was leaving the palace while running away from Absalom, the thought of his henious crime against Uriah must be running through his mind.

Lust will not allow you to think of the costly consequences it will fetch you.

The heat of the passion will overcome you with the false sense of immediate pleasure.

Who will scrub off the mud from David's face at this time of disgrace?

God had cursed him. In 1 Sam 12: 11-12. God said, *' Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give them unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun.*

*.....thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.*

Everything that he did secretly was despicably rewarded him in the open, Matt 10:26.

Absalom, his son, openly slept with the concubines he left at the palace, 2 Sam 16:22.

No greater shame to a father than for a son to sleep with his wives.

What he did against Uriah in the secret, his son did against him in the open.

He despised God behind the doors, God made his son despise him in the open.

Reuben's lust drove him to sleep with Jacob, his father's concubine, Bilhah.

David's lust was punished by his son, Absalom, who slept with his father's (David) son.

At what was supposed to be the height of his reign of peace and tranquility from Saul's assaults while he was supposed to be at war, David was in his palace presumably resting.

He was not at war with the other kings, but his flesh was at war with him.

He became a willing tool in the hands of his fleshly sinful desire.

It was crouching at his door, but he did not master or put it in subjection, Gen 4:7, 1 Cor 9:27

He became a brave man at war winning battles against warlords and horses and chariots but could not win the battle against an unarmed but dangerous arm of flesh.

David's lustful story was that of the brave, the good boy and the bad guy

A brave David against Saul, the bear and Goliath, a good boy, *.....ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to....*( 1 Sam 16:12)

now against the bad guy called the flesh. The bad guy, flesh, knocked him out for Absalom to trample on him.

No matter how strong you are, lustful desire will make you weak, vulnerable, and defenseless.

Are you perfect in love or lustful?


*Remorse corner.*

No matter how great a person may be, sin will render him despicable and powerless.


*Call to Word action.*

Prov 6:26 *For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.*

Prov 7:26 *For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

Lust will lead to adultery. It will make a man in control to lose control and power.


*Prayer.*

Lord, let me not fall into the sin of lust, in Jesus name.


Good morning all, and be blessed as you come into His presence today


God bless you
