This morning, we are continuing with our sermon series on CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

You say, “Pastor, you’ve been preaching on this for a long time, how much longer are you going to preach on this?”


Because I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for…

--an old fashioned

--heaven sent

--Holy Ghost revival


And one of the most definite ways to have them is to look at the lives of those who’ve had them

And that’s what we’ve been doing in this series, and already we’ve looked at…





--4 Great Women, last week

And a couple of weeks ago, we began by looking at the life of David, and last time, we covered basically the first half of his life

But today, we’re going to be looking at the last half of David’s life and we’re going to learn some more lessons on how to have CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH GOD

And with that in mind, let’s read…

Acts 13:36 ( KJV ) 36For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:


In our message last time, we talked about…

--how Samuel the Prophet called David out from tending the sheep and anointed him to be king over Israel

--how he went out and destroyed the giant, Goliath

--how he became the object of King Saul’s wrath, and literally had to run for his life

--how he found himself in a Cave, called Adullam, and how that in that cave, 400 men gathered themselves to David, and went on to become mighty men, themselves

--how David had a chance to kill Saul, but would not strike the Lord’s anointed, and how that was a great lesson on “Biblical Submission to Authority”

--how finally, Saul dies and David reigns in Hebron for 7 years, and then, finally, at the age of 40, David is CORONATED KING over all Israel

And one of the GREATEST lessones we learned from David’s life is that sometimes, it dosen’t happen in 2 weeks when God…

--calls you

--gives you a promised


--a time (we’re concerned about TIME, when God is more concerned about TIMING)

--a process

--some things we have to go through

Now, in preaching that first message on DAVID, I did not have time to go into David’s friendship with Jonathon, who was King Saul’s son, in 1 Samuel 18

And there’s a beautiful story where Jonathan strips himself before David, of his sword and bow, and how that typifies our surrender to Christ

And you know, there’s a lot of people out there who teach and preach that you can know Christ as Savior, but not take Him as Lord

Well, in the New Testament, He’s called “Savior” 24 times, but He’s called Lord over 400 times

There’s no such thing as taking Him as Savior and not as Lord

He’s either Lord of All, or not Lord at All, and really, you don’t accept Him has Lord, you fall on your knees and strip yourself before Him and say, MY LORD AND MY GOD!
