Teaching Book of Matthew | Pastor Julius T. Davis Jr
New Year Same Message - Part 2
(I searched for my wallet on Monday)
Minister Rich Lampley II, Many Bible scholars believe that the book of Matthew is the most important document of the Christian faith. It connects the Old and New Testaments and introduces a king, the Lord Jesus, and His people, the church. The book of Matthew offers a unique look at the revolutionary life and words of Jesus, and shares His dynamic principles for becoming a faithful subject in the kingdom of God.
Pastor Julius T. Davis Jr. Friendship Baptist Church of Girard, Ohio JOHN 11 The raising of Lazarus from the dead was not our Lord’s last miracle before the cross, but it was certainly His greatest and the one that aroused the most response from both His friends and His enemies.
"David Fleeing from Absalom"
Absalom wanted to be King and he tried to turn the people of Israel away from his father. David wound up fleeing for his life from Absalom… Absalom rode under a tree and got his hair caught in the boughs of the tree where he was left hanging. One of King David's men came upon him and killed him…

We have seen in the first ten chapters of 2 Samuel how God empowered David to defeat Israel’s enemies and establish and expand the kingdom. 2 Sam. & 1 Chron. Then David committed the sins of adultery, murder, and deception (chap. 11—12), and the rest of the book describes David wrestling with problems caused by his own children.

Encouragement from John 4 Rich Lampley II
In Pastor Julius T. Davis's sermon, he points out a couple of lessons that can be learned from this miracle from 2 Kings. The first point he makes is that all we have is borrowed from the Lord and we are but stewards of the things we have. This would include our gifts and our abilities that we receive from the Lord. Some may think that they learned them so they earned them, but it is the Lord who gives the ability and the talent to all.
One would have expected that Elisha’s servant should have been a saint; but we find him far otherwise. The best men, the best ministers, have often had those about them that were their grief and shame. My master hath spared this Syrian — A stranger, and one of that nation who are the implacable enemies of God’s people. As the Lord liveth — He swears, that he might have some pretense for the action to which he had bound himself by his oath; not considering, that to swear to do any wicked action
