THE CHOSEN ONE

I SAMUEL 16:7-13

THERE IS A THEOLOGICAL CONCEPT KNOWN AS THE LAW OF FIRST MENTIONS/BEGINNINGS. THE CONCEPT SUGGESTS THAT WHATEVER PRINCIPLE, IDEA, CONCEPT, OR THOUGHT WE READ ABOUT THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE ORIGINATES IN THE BOOK OF GENESIS.

HEAVEN (GARDEN OF EDEN)

HELL (CAST OUT OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN)

DEATH (CAIN. . . ABEL)

ETERNITY (METHUSELAH)

RAPTURE (ENOCH)

ON AND ON, WE READ OF PRINCIPLES, IDEAS, CONCEPTS, AND THOUGHTS THAT RE-OCCUR THROUGHOUT THE PAGES OF GOD’S HOLY WORD.

THE LAW OF FIRST MENTIONS/BEGINNINGS ALSO SUGGESTS THAT THERE IS NO NEW TESTAMANT PRINCIPLE THAT IS NOT TYPE-CASTED OR FORESHADOWED IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.

JESUS BLOOD / SACRIFICE

JOSPEH / JESUS

WE EVEN READ/SEE THE PRESENCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT. ALTHOUGH HIS FULL MANIFESTATION WOULD NOT OCCUR UNTIL THE NEW TESTAMENT CHURCH WAS ESTABLISHED.

GENESIS 1:2 – SPIRIT OF GOD MOVED . . .

GENESIS 1:26 – LET US MAKE MAN . . . TRINITY

JUDGES 6:24 – THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD TOOK POSSESSION OF GIDEON.

JUDGES 14:6, WHEN REFERENCING SAMSON “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD POWERFULLY TOOK CONTROL OF SAMSON, AND SAMSON RIPPED THE LION’S JAWS APART WITH HIS BARE HANDS.”

I DON’T CARE WHO YOU ARE

I DON’T CARE WHAT’S YOUR SOCIO-ECONOMIC STATUS

I DON’T CARE WHERE YOU’VE BEEN/WHERE YOU ARE GOING

I DON’T CARE HOW YOU’RE LIVING

YOU CAN BE CREATIVE

YOU CAN BE A PERSON OF AUTHORITY AND ABILITY, BUT YOU’RE NOTHING WITHOUT GOD’S ANOINTING: IN YOUR LIFE, ON YOUR LIFE, AND WORKING FOR YOU IN LIFE (2X).

ABILITY – INTERVIEW

ANOINTING – JOB

ABILITY – DOOR

ANOINTING – KEEP YOU

W. MACDONALD SAID “A PERSON CAN BE HIGHLY TALENTED, INTESNSIVELY TRAINED, AND WIDELY EXPERIENCED, BUT WITHOUT SPIRITUAL POWER THEY ARE INEFFECTIVE. ON THE OTHER HAND, A PERSON MAY BE UNEDUCATED, UNATTRACTIVE, AND UNREFINED, YET LET THEM BE ENDUED WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE WORLD WILL TURN OUT TO SEE THE BURN FOR GOD, BECAUSE THE ANOINTING POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOTHING TO BE UNDER-RATED.” . . .

THE ANOINTING IS SOMETHING (2X).

DAVID – DISCOVERED

DAVID’S STORY – INTERWOVEN WITH THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL. RECALL IF YOU WILL HOW IN I SAMUEL 8 ISRAEL REQUESTED A KING, SO THAT THEY COULD BE LIKE OTHER NATIONS.

SPIRITUAL AMNESIA . . .

LEVITICUS 20:26 GOD – ISRAEL “YOU MUST BE HOLY BECAUSE I THE LORD, AM HOLY. I HAVE SET YOU APART FROM ALL OTHER PEOPLE TO BE MY VERY OWN.”

I PETER 2:9 “YOU ARE A CHOSEN PEOPLE. A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS. GOD’S HOLY NATION. HIS VERY OWN POSSESSION.”

YET, ISRAEL DESIRED TO BE LIKE OTHERS.

GOD – ISRAEL – . . . I WILL GIVE YOU AN EARTHLY KING, BUT IF HE IS GOING TO BE MY MOUTH PIECE, NOT ONLY WILL I CHOOSE HIM, BUT I’LL SET THE CRITERIA, AND ONE OF THE THINGS HE MUST BE IS ANOINTED. THAT BRINGS US TO DAVID IN OUR TEXT TONIGHT.

AFTER SAUL . . .

CHAPTER 16 OPENS UP . . .

GOD – SAMUEL – BETHLEHEM (HOUSE OF BREAD) – I’M GETTING READY TO DO A NEW THING.

GOD – SAMUEL – STOP MOURNING OVER SAUL – THAT’S THE PAST…

I’VE COME HERE TONIGHT . . . STOP MOURNING OVER YOUR PAST, STOP MOURNING OVER WHAT WENT WRONG. STOP MOURNING OVER AREAS THAT YOU FAILED IN YESTERDAY. GOD WANTS TO DO A NEW THING.
