Marty is live on his Facebook page with ON THE GO as he travels down the road. It is an inspirational word for living victoriously in Christ as you are “on the go”. Watch for it, tune in and be inspired.
I saw a statue of a child standing on its father’s shoulders. The plaque says: “The reason the present generation can see so far is because it is standing on the shoulders of the former generation.” (attributed to Sir Isaac Newton) The coming generation should be launched from a point of purposely given advantage. They shouldn’t have to dig themselves out of a hole. (1K.2:12)
David not only loved his son and wanted to be assured that he would have a relationship with God but David also loved what God loved: Israel. He wanted to be assured that the presence of God would be in the midst of Israel. There was a nation at stake and David facilitated its preservation. In preserving his family, David preserved a nation. (1K.2:12)
David developed in Solomon a love of God and a love of worship and a fear of God. Solomon grew up on a steady diet of worship. His father sang songs to the Lord that came up out of his spirit. His father didn’t need a church service to worship God. He worshipped God unashamedly before the whole nation. Worship was a lifestyle lived out before Solomon. He was accustomed to hearing his father’s voice lifted in praise or in prayer. It was a familiar sound, not a strange one.
The Lion, The Bear, The Giant And The King—The LION could not prosper against David because David kept God in the supreme position in his life, in his thoughts, in his consideration. David had to put his harp down and sing his praises out of breath while running toward the lion to do battle with the lion. The BEAR could not prosper against David because of the supremacy of God in David’s life. The GIANT could not prosper against David even though he came against David with the deadliest of weapons. KING Saul could not prosper against David even though he had supreme authority in the land. God’s supremacy was far greater than Saul and his army. “Yet God is my king from of old, Who works deeds of deliverance in the midst of the earth.” (Ps.74:12, NASB)
(SAM BRASSFIELD is speaking at Kingdom Congress 2017. This is an excerpt from one of his training manuals.) David’s Key of Authority: Using God’s power with His permission brings absolute victory over the enemies of God.
David had the power to overcome all his adversaries, because he was under the authority of his God. Thus he had God’s permission to rule over his enemies, because he was a true worshiper . He exercised this authority in both the spiritual realm and the natural realm. These two worlds are connected. David understood the power and authority that he had in both worlds, the spiritual and the natural realm. If he didn’t first and foremost have authority with God in the spirit realm, he would not have had the power to overcome the enemies in the natural realm. The power given to his enemies came from the demonic or spirit world of Satan and his power was manifested in their worship to the gods of the Philistines and all other enemies of Israel who worshiped Baal and other entities. They worshiped spirit beings, demons, and objects made of stone, wood or the formations in the heavens, all of which were storefronts of Satan. He is behind all idolatry and yet tries to appear as an angel of light in his world of darkness. David had knowledge of this dark spiritual world around him and knew he had authority over them in the name of his God. This word got out quickly that David had such authority. That’s the reason King Saul’s servants called for David to come sing, play his harp and worship his God. They knew when he did, the demons would have to flee from Saul without delay. Now are we seeing the need of the restoration of the Tabernacle of David a little more clearly? We too, like David, must understand our authority in both worlds.
