David the King, the Prophet, the Psalmist, the Warrior

Updated on January 12, 2012

We all most times think of David just as shepherd boy, who looked after his fathers sheep, he would guard them against all kinds of troubles that would come during the night, most times wolves would try to attack and kill the sheep, but as this was his work and to have a loss of a sheep it ment that he would have to explain this to his father.

Don't we go thro trials not only at night but during the day, and when we fall down we need to go to our Father to ask for forgiveness, and as our Father is a loving Father he forgives us.

We think of David as a warrior, he went out to fight Goliath the giant and with God's help he won.

Many times we go thro some small or huge trails and we try to fight them on our own, we don't get very far as they seem to stay around and not go, but when we call on our Lord, then we are given the strength to overcome the battle and the victory is there for us with the help from God.

We see David as a song writter, and a writer of poems, where he expresses his feelings to God, about when he has been down and how he sees where God has been there for him.

As we go thro life many times we write our feelings down about how we are have been feeling down or we may have an up feeling, but most times we feel down and we write about how we would like to have our Lord come into our life.

We see David as king over the nation, where he would go out to fight the enemy, if he went out to fight without God being with him the battle would be long and hard and some time he would loose, but when he had God with him everytime the battle would be won.

Don't we at times try to fight our battles on our own, and we make things worse than before, and when we realize that we can't do it on our own, we end up asking God to help us and then all things come to us so easy, we can only win when we have God with us.

We see David as a prophet, he had written Psalms, and in 2nd. Samuel chap. 22 you will see that David wrote about Jesus and this was about 1000 years before Jesus came, he speaks about Jesus as being his rock, fortress, shield, stronghold, saviour,refuge, Lord who is worthy of praise.

He speaks about his falling down and that violent men are after him, he speaks about where the earth trembled and quaked, the foundations of the heavens shook, and the Lord thundered from heaven, if you go to Revelations all this is also written there,then david speaks about being rescued from the powerful enemy, and he speaks about his reward he will receve from God, according to his righteousness, and he says that the Lord will save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low, and in chap. 23. David says "The Spirit of the Lord spoke through me; the word was on my tongue.Is not my house right with God? Has he not made with me an everlasting covenant, arranged and secured in every part. Will he not bring to fruition my salvation and grant me my every desire. But evil men are all to be cast aside like thorns, which are not gathered with the hand. Whoever touches thorns uses a tool of iron or the shalt of a spear; they are burned up where the lie."

Here David has been shown what the end times will be like, those who follow God will be saved and those who do not follow God will be gathered up thrown out and burned up.

In Psalm 19 v. 13 "Don't let me do wrong on purpose Lord, or let sin have control over my life, then I will be innocent, and not guilty of some terrible fault.", then in Psalm 22 there are 6 prophecys and each of them were fulfilled by Jesus.

The prophecies are Ps. 22.1 fulfilled Matthew 27.46.

Ps. 22. 7,8. Mt. 27. 39,43.

Ps.22.14. Luke 23.33. & Jn. 19.34.

Ps. 22.16 Luke 24. 39,40.

Ps.22.18. Mt. 27.35.

Ps. 22.27,28. Mt.28.19,20. ; Ac.1.8.

and in Psalm 22. v 13-18. this is about what happened to Jesus, about where the soldiers beat Jesus and then they gamble for his clothes.
