VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Our answers to our enemies is the LORD
"And David answered Rechab and Baanah his brother, sons of Rimmon the Beerothite,"
Rechab and Baanah symbolizes or represents the enemies of GOD's people. They thought King David will reward them for beheading Ish-bosheth, but David and Jonathan had made a covenant better than wife and husband's covenant.
David and Jonathan's covenant:
1 Samuel 18:3 (Amplified Bible)
18:3 Then Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he loved him as his own life.
1 Samuel 20:16 (Amplified Bible)
20:16 So Jonathan made a covenant with the house of David, saying, And the Lord will require that this covenant be kept at the hands of David’s enemies.
1 Samuel 23:18 (Amplified Bible)
23:18 And the two of them made a covenant before the Lord. And David remained in the wood [at Horesh], and Jonathan went to his house.
Our enemies has great disadvantages compared to us and that is, they don't know GOD's WORDS. Don't make a believer your enemy, but we only have unbelievers as enemy, because before like us, they are enemies of GOD.
Romans 5:8 (Amplified Bible)
5:8 But God shows and clearly proves His [own] love for us by the fact that while we were still sinners, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) died for us.
Philippians 3:18 (Amplified Bible)
3:18 For there are many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, who walk (live) as enemies of the cross of Christ (the Anointed One).
Beware of fake believers, they are acting like they love GOD, etc, but in fact they are enemies of the cross of CHRIST.
Aleph-Tav, the signature of the Alpha and the Omega - the LORD JESUS CHRIST is placed after the word "answered"
1 Peter 3:15 (Amplified Bible)
3:15 But in your hearts set Christ apart as holy [and acknowledge Him] as Lord. Always be ready to give a logical defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope that is in you, but do it courteously and respectfully.
1 Peter 3:15 (New International Version)
3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,
We always answer the LORD JESUS CHRIST to all questions.
There's an old song that goes like this, "CHRIST is the answer to all our longings." and yes it is.
2 Corinthians 1:20 (New International Version)
1:20 For no matter how many promises God has made, they are "Yes" in Christ. And so through him the "Amen" is spoken by us to the glory of God.
There's a pastor before that said "all the answers to prayers given to the LORD are YES" it's not true, according to the bible, all the answers to promises are Yes not prayers. That means all the bible promises if we claim, there's only One Answer - that is the LORD JESUS CHRIST. That's why we always thank the LORD in prayer because the LORD JESUS CHRIST was given 2,000 years ago. All our prayers are practices of faith.
