David was fleeing from Absalom. Absalom sought the best advice from man he could get and he got good advice. The problem was that there is no record of him consulting God in anything he had done in the past or now in the present. God sent counsel to destroy Absalom and end his rebellion. Absalom turned down the good counsel and heeded the God Counsel and thus sealed his doom. God’s word will come true regardless of who is sitting on the throne.
Once again God’s word is fulfilled. Everything about Jesus’ crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection was preordained by God and thus would be fulfilled. God’s word speaks of the last days when unholy religion will abound, natural love will be hard to find, homosexuality will come out of the closet, disease will be rampant and governments will be in distress. Are we witnessing the fulfillment of these last days’ prophecies? What do you think? Is it all just coincidences or God’s Counsel??
