Now that Absalom has been executed, and disgracefully buried by Joab and his men, the news comes to David concerning the fate of his son.
This is the Fortieth Sermon in the series Kingdom, Dynasty and Glory; an exposition on the Second Book of Samuel.
In this session we look at the overriding message of the first half of Isaiah. Man rebels and God stands with two hands outstretched. The first is a hand of judgment for man's choice to refuse and rebel against God. While at the same time God stands with another hand outstretched asking men and women to come back and to choice to consent and obey the Word of God - the ultimate picture of God's Grace!
The fall of man into sin is a tragic account of how the human race rebelled against God's authority and placed the human will above the trustworthiness of God. God rightly responded to this rebellion with judgment, but even in the midst of God's judgment, He also responded with several acts of grace that foreshadowed the coming of the Messiah that would put God's grace on full display.
The third temptation of Christ is the heaviest of the three. The lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes are enough to keep most people from ever being brought into the light of truth. This last temptation is for the very life. It is the choice that we make to keep our life or yield it to God. It is the decision that brings us to salvation and a new birth, or condemns us forever to a devil's hell.
If God would just pay for our sins and then let us continue to wallow around in them, people might love the Gospel. But the message of God's love is that God sent His Son into the world to save His people from their sins – not save them so that they can continue in their sins (Matthew 1:21).
