1 Chronicles Chapter 14 Back in Jerusalem, David is sitting pretty. He takes on a few more wives and they start producing princes and princesses. Obviously, the Philistines are worried. They just got rid of Saul and now some other more powerful, more holy, more awesome king has risen up in his place. So they set out to attack David. But David (who’s pretty smart) asks God what he should do. God tells David it’s okay to go out and crush the Philistine army. And that’s just what David does. Well, he actually beats them into surrendering and then burns them alive, but still. When Philistine soldiers attack again, David consults God. This time, Yahweh gives him some specific battle directions and David’s victorious. God’s pretty good at war games. David’s victories against the Philistines make him famous and all the other nations start to fear Israel. That’s just how David and God like it. Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, https://temtube.com/
