David & Bathsheba


After David committed adultery with Bathsheba God sent Nathan to him with a story comparable to what David did with Bathsheba. David not knowing it was about him was angry about the injustice & proclaimed the death sentence unwittingly on himself. 2Sa 12:7 And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man.

2Sa 12:10 Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. Rom 11:29 For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance.

God’s word (sword) won’t leave David. God will pursue him as He did with Jonah, to bring him to repentance. God never repents of the calling he puts on a man’s life.

2Sa 12:13 And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die.

When God forgives: Hbr 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Mic 7:19 He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.

God can’t punish us for something He remembers no more. It is simply gone.

2Sa 12:14 Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die.

Howbeit: 1) ceasing, end, finality. Shall surely die: 1) to die, kill, have one executed.
The baby took the death sentence in David’s place. That baby was a type of Christ to come, an example of what Jesus would do at the Cross. God’s enemies always reveal themselves when a Christian stumbles. There are many preachers that oppose the work of God, some of which aren’t even saved, when a preacher of righteousness stumbles they will quickly blaspheme God. 1Ch 13:9 And when they came unto the threshingfloor of Chidon, Uzza put forth his hand to hold the ark; for the oxen stumbled. Oxen represent God’s servants, stumbling represents caught in a fault & the ark represents salvation provided by Jesus at the Cross. God’s righteousness can’t fall, Uzza tried to uphold God’s righteousness. Blasphemers try to uphold God’s righteousness with false doctrines & psychology. Beware of what befell Uzza.

It isn’t God’s nature to kill a child out of anger for its father’s sin. Punishing a person can never can never make him righteous. Jesus & Him Crucified is the only way to righteousness before God. The baby dying in David’s place represented The Message of the Cross injected into this story.

Satan is a Great Counterfeiter
2Sa 12:11 Thus saith the LORD, 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 neighbor, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. 2Sa 12:12 For thou didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.
2Sa 16:22 So they spread Absalom a tent upon the top of the house; and Absalom went in unto his father’s concubines in the sight of all Israel.

In a tent is not in the sight of the sun! Satan counterfeited God’s curse to try to prove God’s mercy was invain. 2Sa 12:11 was for David if He wouldn’t repent. David repented in 2Sa 12:13.

Satan tries to burden us down with our sins, Jesus lifted the burden of sin on the Cross to all that will believe.
