Cause and Effect Consequences

The next few weeks we will conclude our study of 1 & 2 Samuel. 2 Samuel 21:1-24:25 is an appendix to David’s career as the Lord’s anointed. The emphasis, of the appendix, is on David’s praise for God’s sovereign mercies and the mighty warriors the Lord used in the service of the king. 

Last week we discovered that the central theme 2 Samuel 15-20 was “rebellion.” The rebellion, in chapters 15-20, was first started by David’s own personal sin. – adultery. Then, we seaw the unbroken chain of cause and effect consequences of rebellion.

The stories of rape, murder, revolt, overthrow, division, revolt, murder, decapitation, drought, and death. resulting from Israel’s sin were fitting reminders that no king was above the word of the Lord.
