What of the King’s Son?
SUNDAY, AUGUST 17, 2014
Posted by: Shreveport Grace Church | more..

2 Samuel 18

Absalom had rebelled against his father David, and David would stop his advances against his throne, but spare his son, and not render evil for the evil his son had plotted against him, v.5. However, as the battle ensued, and many were slain, as Absalom was fleeing on a mule, his hair caught in the bough of a tree, and he was suspended between heaven and earth, hanging from the tree, v. 9. Joab, David’s captain, found him and slew him there.

When it came time to send a runner to give David the news, a man name Ahimaaz volunteered to carry the news, but he was not an eye witness, and therefore Joab would not send him. Rather, he chose Cushi to run to David with the news of the death of his son. However, Ahimaaz, insisted on running, and even ran ahead of Cushi, and arrived first. However, when David questioned him about his son, he could not give a clear answer, and David told him to stand aside and be still, v. 29. When Cushi arrived, David repeated the same question about the state of his son, and Cushi, told him the truth, v. 32. What are the lessons we can glean from this narrative?

1. There was one message that needed to be carried to David, and that was that his son was dead. By comparison, those who are sent to preach the Gospel of God today have but one message, the death of His Son. Paul declared, ‘For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified,’ I Corinthians 2:2.

2. By contrast, Absalom, was suspended between heaven and earth, and slain for his own sin and rebellion. Christ had no personal sin for which he was taken and slain, but he was hung and slain for the sin of His people.

3. Absalom, by his rebellion led many into condemnation, 2 Samuel 18:7,8, as was with the case with Adam in his sin and rebellion, Romans 5:19. By contrast, in the death of the Lord Jesus, many were made righteous, (declared justified upon completion of His death. There could be no peace until the matter of sin was settled by the death of the King’s son.

4. Ahimaaz, represents many today who run, as if sent by God, but have nothing to declare. Their message is one of peace and prosperity, but when it comes to declaring the truth regarding the King’s Son, and His death, they halt, and cannot declare Him plainly in truth. Their message is one of ‘All is well,’ v. 28, and ‘confusion,’ v. 29. They have no message at all, not having been sent.

5. Cushi, represents those whom God has sent, and although the message is not popular, yet they must declare the death of God’s Son. They do not change it or compromise it out of fear, but declare it exactly as they have witnessed it, and were sent to declare, 2 Corinthians 2:17. Ken Wimer
