  • Joab And Absalom Series

    Contributed by John Dixon on Oct 7, 2018

    We are all guilty of rebellion against God either in our Actions or Attitudes so we all need Jesus' family reunion.

    1 John 3 (NASB) 3 See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we will be. We know that more

  • Agents Of Grace: Joab Series

    Contributed by Daniel Habben on Nov 8, 2015

    Joab was a sinner/saint just like we are. We learn to deal with such people in patience. We also learn that we are not to base our plans on our own sinful cunning, but on trust in the Lord.

    Over the past couple of months we’ve been looking at the people God used in the life of King David and today will be our last sermon in this Agents of Grace series. Of all the people we learned about, which one do you most identify with? Are you a Samuel, a mentor to younger believers? Are more

  • Price Of Pride--The Example Of Joab Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jul 11, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    The career of Joab helps us understand how to temper pride with humility, and what happens when we don't.

    The Price of Pride–the example of Joab 2 Sm 3:39 “the sons of Zeruiah are too hard for me. The Lord requite the evildoer according to his wickedness!” These words of David refer principally to a man named Joab, general of David’s army. David himself was a warrior. more

    One of the most overlooked texts in all of Scripture... but also one of the most reassuring. What can we gain from David’s observation that he was "weak?"

  • Will We Pay Attention?

    based on 17 ratings

    Absalom set Joab’s fields on fire to get his attention so Joab would set up a meeting with the King. Will God have to set our fields on fire to get our attention?

    PAY ATTENTION! CAN GOD GET OUR ATTENTION AND GET US TO EXPECT GOOD THINGS? By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. I do this lesson in two parts, if you try it in one part you must move to the next point quickly. I. CAN GOD GET OUR ATTENTION TODAY? THERE ARE SO MANY DEMANDS, WE HAVE more

  • Get Excited? I Am But A Pencil!

    Contributed by Wade Martin Hughes, Sr on Nov 16, 2016

    Have we walked away from our first love? Absalom knew how to get Joab's attention: SET A FIRE!

  • Siege Ramps

    Contributed by David Wilson on Sep 12, 2003
    based on 14 ratings

    When David allows a vacuum to grow in the nation’s leadership, Joab is forced to build a siege ramp to deal with the problem

    Joab is not a good guy. We find him in the midst of a great deal of political intrigue in the midst of David’s Court. He literally MURDERS the man that David had replaced him in office with. David is not longer running from the confrontation such as that of Absalom, but is beginning to deal with more

  • Paying The Price Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Nov 9, 2003
    based on 74 ratings

    This passage is perhaps one of the greatest texts on giving known to preachers... but it is also one of the most difficult, raising questions many of us would just as soon avoid.

    OPEN: Back in 1995 (“Bits & Pieces” pamphlet) I read the following story: Every February on George Washington’s birthday, the late newspaper columnist, Frederick C. Othman, used to visit the West Wing of the Smithsonian Institution, look at a certain statue there among the antique printing more

  • Yield Not To Temptation

    Contributed by Barry O Johnson on Jun 13, 2018

    All of us are tempted every day. There is a process we go through before we make a decision to give in to the temptation or not to give in to the temptation. The record of David and Bathsheba is such an example.

    All of us are tempted every day. Satan is trying to find something that will stick in our minds that we will act on. So I said to God “Father, there has to be a process we go through before we make a decision to give in to the temptation or not to give in to the temptation.” And sure enough, there more

  • A Man After God's Own Heart? Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Oct 14, 2018
    based on 4 ratings

    David committed adultery, and murder by proxie. And God brought a terrible but just judgment upon him that was rightly deserved. But then in Acts 13 we read that David was a man after God's own heart. How can that be?

    This sermon series is what I call “Comeback Kings.” It describes the lives of people in Scripture who had had potential for greatness, but whose lives were shattered because of something they or others had done. Ultimately, though they achieved victory from lives of defeat and became “comeback more

  • David Mourns For Absalom Series

    Contributed by Freddy Fritz on Oct 30, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    Second Samuel 18:1-19:8 shows us a father's inordinate sorrow for a rebellious son.

    Scripture King David’s third son, Absalom, had staged a rebellion against him. David and his loyal supporters fled Jerusalem. The Lord provided Hushai to thwart the counsel of Ahithophel so that David was able to escape over the Jordan River and get to the city of Mahanaim. Absalom gathered more
