Some people in the Bible had similar experiences with attacks and opposition. When the tribes of Israel got together and anointed David king, the Philistines went searching for him to take him out of the picture. “But when the Philistines heard that they had anointed David king over Israel, all the Philistines came up to seek David; and David heard of it, and went down to the hold.” (2Sam 5:17). They realized that they had passed up a great opportunity to destroy David and now intended to correct their mistake. Now that the anointing had come upon David for his destiny, he was too dangerous. So, a concerted effort was mounted to remove him from any possible scenario which would bring Israel to the victorious state which God’s word had prophesied.
