The HOUSE of SECRETS

Somewhat of a Different Subject @ the Home - Yet 1 I’m sure that you will understand it’s relevance in today’s society

NEXT Week - THE HOUSE of HONOR…

Today - The House of Secrets…

Not @ Personal Secrets (Another Subject)

Specifically - HOUSEHOLD SECRETS…

i.e. DYSFUNCTIONS w/in the HOME by an INDIVIDUAL(S)… PARENT(S)… CHILD(REN)…

BEHAVIORS –

ABNORMAL Behaviors… Destructive Behaviors…

-- if GONE - Would ONLY Serve to HEIGHTEN the HOME’S SITUATION…

that are OBVIOUSLY in the HOME - Known BY The HOME -

BUT “THEY” Can’t be Discussed/Acknowledged OUTSIDE those 4 Walls…

As a Matter of FACT - They’re typically camouflaged… hidden… covered up… ==

To Appear as though they DO NOT Exist AT ALL!!

== BRUISE

In the House they are Obviously there -

YET - They’re:

Not ALLOWED to BE DISCUSSED IN THE HOME

Not ALLOWED to BE CALLED A PROBLEM

Typically BLAMED ON THE OTHERS IN THE HOME & NEVER ACCEPTED BY THE INDIVIDUAL AS THEIRS

Today We’ll Look at a MAN Who had Such a House - FULL of SECRETS…

We’ll LOOK @

1. The Secrets

2. The Description of what Living w/ those Secrets is Like

3. The CURE (HOPE)

The House we will look at -

DAVID & BATHSHEBA…

Secrets that are still very real @ 90’s

Homes w/ Secrets are JUST LIKE David -

They CAN’T Be Helped Until they are ADMITTED – DENIAL (TRUTH – FREE)

Truth Hurts Sometimes

Therefore == Continual Dysfunction… Inferior home < God’s Plan…

KNOW THIS - VERY FIXABLE W/ GOD

Say this “By & With God - Any & All Difficulties (secrets) in MY Home Can & Will Be Overcome…”

Don’t Get Ahead of ME

II Sam. 11:1 … it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab & his servants w/ him & all Israel & they destroyed the children of Ammon & besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at Jerusalem & it came to pass in at evening, that David arose from off his bed & walked upon the roof of the king’s house & from the roof he saw a woman washing herself & the woman was very beautiful to look upon.

See that the Home got started UNDER A Secret right from the Start

3 And David sent and inquired after the woman. And one said, Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite? And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him, and he lay with her; for she was purified from her uncleanness: and she returned unto her house. And the woman conceived, and sent and told David, and said, I am with child.

The 1st Secret -

SEXUAL RELATIONS (More of a Couple thing > family…)

Not so much as a Secret as the Others will be -

As Much as it is Handled Improperly

a. Relations that are Built Entirely on Sex…. == Very shallow… short relationships… usually lacking in Real love to help get through the Tough spots of Marriage…

The REAL Bond Should be INVISIBLE Things… These should Only Augment the relation

b. Sexual relations that have went sour…

== meant to be beautiful… fun… creative times together… NOW non-existent

For whatever reason - HAS DIED (never lived)

Both These are breeding ground for satan to destroy your home…
