The Life of David
David Anointed King of Judah
II Samuel 2:1-32

The way was finally opened for David to become king over Israel. But, even then, David was anointed king over only Judah and not yet all Israel.

The article was about Peggielene Bartels, secretary to the Ghanaian embassy in Washington for 30 years.

God had promised David that he would be the next king over Israel.

I. God’s Kingdom Is Inaugurated by Divine Guidance (II Samuel 2:1-4a)
David was seeking divine guidance from God regarding the establishment of his kingdom.

God’s kingdom is like a mustard seed. It starts small and grows into something that is really big.

II. God’s Kingdom Is Extended by Winsome Appeal (II Samuel 2:4b-7)
There is a wonderful winsomeness about David’s appeal to the inhabitants of Jabesh-Gilead to submit to his kingship.

III. God’s Kingdom Is Opposed by Rebellious Opposition (II Samuel 2:8-32)
King David now met with rebellious opposition. And this rebellious opposition to the kingdom of God will continue until Jesus returns.

God’s kingdom will triumph. God’s kingdom will prevail. And God’s kingdom will cover the earth as the waters cover the sea.
