With me you shall be safe: David could not do anything about the priests who were already murdered. David had to trust and obey when he didn't know what God will do for me, and here he is doing it. These men came to David in distress, in debt, and discontented, but they didn't stay that way. 1 Samuel 22 ; 1SAM 22:1 David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father's house heard it, they went down thither to him. (Psalm 142:1-4). "You shall surely die, Ahimelech, you and your father's house!" 1 Samuel 22 – David at the Adullam Cave, Saul Murders the Priests A. David at Adullam cave. The name Adullam means refuge, but the cave wasn't to be David's refuge. Most archaeologists believe that the Cave of Adullam was not too far from the place where David defeated Goliath, in the hills of Judah. i. But at the very least, he kept Ahimelech from dying with greater honor. Prophets i. Many times we think we have to get out of the cave until we can have the heart David had in Psalm 57. i. 1. But if this were their design they were greatly disappointed, for David never made any improper use of them." "And every one [that was] in distress, and every one that [was] in debt, and every one [that was] … So David departed and went into the forest of Hereth. One Step Forward and Two Backward (1 Samuel 27:1-28:2) 25. Over and over again in the Scriptures, God's work is led by a called and anointed man. "These are the kind of men who came to David: distressed, bankrupt, dissatisfied. He commands the death of priests of the LORD. -------------------- In the greater way, it was David's mere presence with Ahimelech that made him guilty before Saul, and there really wasn't anything David or anyone could do about that. Look at what King Saul said when he heard what David had done: Read 1 Samuel 24:16-19 b. The Second Time Around (1 Samuel 26:1-25) 24. Major Prophets b. Till I know what God will do for me: David doesn't know the whole story.

(1Sa 22:3-4) David cares for his parents. Prophets Pentateuch Will the son of Jesse give every one of you fields and vineyards, and make you all captains of thousands and captains of hundreds?

At this point, David could have argued the point, but instead he returns to the counsel of the Lord to be sure, And once more the Lord confirms His earlier order, David’s approach to this situation and to these men is a great example of godly and humble leadership, Of course, the first step for every man or woman who leads or ministers to others is to know you are in the will of God yourself, And that requires that we ask Him to direct our hearts, which He will do by His Spirit, You may be tempted to think those rocks would make that process easier, But in reality you have an even greater access to God’s will by His Spirit, The Spirit can inform us beyond merely yes and no answers, And He speaks to us continually, not merely in special moments when we seek Him, So David models the importance of seeking God’s guidance as we lead others, followed next by communicating the orders of the Lord to others, We share what God reveals so that His will is manifest to others, And more importantly, so that we are on the record with others, Accountability to the will of God goes up exponentially when you share with others what the Lord has told you, Keep his will a secret, and you are more likely to forget it yourself, But then as we share the will of God, we might encounter resistance, Perhaps our spouse or parents or friends will question the plan, At that point, we may be tempted to argue in God’s favor, This response might seem like a demonstration of faith, but it can just as easily be the result of pride. (Psalm 52:1a, 2-4), ii. Beloved Lord, You have called Christians to persevere in faith in the midst of unjustified persecution. THE BAPTIST’S TESTIMONY ABOUT CHRIST (John 1:15-18) 15.

Verse 1 “Then Samuel said to Saul, “the LORD sent me to anoint you as king over His people, over Israel; now therefore, listen to the words of the LORD.” Saul was made king over GOD’S people, not his. a. Doeg the Edomite was last seen in 1 Samuel 21:7, where he was in Nob, at the tabernacle at the same time David came there. As you study 1 Samuel 25, look for a principle that relates to the effects your righteous choices have on the people around you. The poor simple-minded high priest knew nothing of the existing family feud between Saul and David. David may have thought he would just wait out the years until Saul died, isolated in the wilderness. God is the One who saves. This was the worst act that ever Saul did." "This is one of the worst acts in the life of Saul; his malice was implacable, and his wrath was cruel, and there is no motive of justice or policy by which such a barbarous act can be justified." iii. These men had to make conscious choice: who will lead me? Not only does he accuse Ahimelech and David of conspiracy against him (you conspired against me, you and the son of Jesse), but he also thinks that David is out to kill him (that he should rise against me, to lie in wait). What happened to the Jews who died before Jesus was born. I will praise You forever, because You have done it; and in the presence of Your saints I will wait on Your name, for it is good.

The title of Psalm 57 reads A Michtam of David when he fled from Saul into the cave. This command shows Saul is going faster and faster down the decline away from the LORD. But he could go to a humble cave and find refuge. The servants of the king would not lift their hands to strike the priests of the LORD. He confessed his guilt in the matter, and sought forgiveness from the LORD. Remind students that despite Samuel’s warnings of the dangers of having a king, the Israelites had demanded that they be given a king to rule over them so they could be like other nations (see 1 Samuel 8:4–22). (Trapp), iv. (Meyer). So we need to have the humility to seek the Lord again for confirmation, This isn’t an indication that we lack faith, It’s simply a reasonable precaution to avoid falling into the pride of mistaking our own voice for God’s, Then once we have confirmation, we move out and call upon those who look up to us to follow in support, For if we’re sure the Lord has spoken, then we must also have confidence He will bring the rest of the plan together, Spiritual leadership is often a matter of persevering in spite of opposition from God’s people, to say nothing of the enemy, David’s men need inspiration to overcome their fears and step out in faith, And David provided that inspiration without resorting to pride or bravado, Humility is an admirable and inspiring quality in any leader, Finally, David doesn’t let his men pout in self-pity, He tells them it’s time to get busy saving others, Nothing inspires us to serve and obey God better than focusing on the needs of others before our own, Ironically, when we live a self-centered lifestyle, we are unlikely to obtain the spiritual blessing we seek, But when we make serving others the goal, the Lord will take care of those needs, Sure enough, as David and his men obey the Lord, the Lord brings a great victory, Just four hundred poorly armed men were able to defeat a Philistine army of unknown number, And they free the city from the attackers, So not only has David won a great victory that endears him to the people, But in the process the Lord has made a provision for him with the livestock, What a great example of seeking first for the righteousness of God and having all the other needs met in the process, Now that David has made a big splash in defending the city, word is going to reach back to Saul who is still search frantically for David, Samuel reminds us that when David went to the battle, the priest Abiathar accompanied him with the ephod, This shows us that David intended to continue consulting the Lord throughout his movements, And that proves to be a wise move on David’s part, Because he will need to consult the Lord again concerning what do to next, David has entered this city after the battle and is wondering if this might be a safe haven for him to defend himself against Saul, He’s pretty confident that Saul’s army can’t penetrate the elaborate walls of the city, But that’s true only if the inhabitants of the city take David’s side in the battle, Because David will need their help to defend the city from Saul’s attack, He realizes this city could be David’s prison, And he trusts that if he sieges the city, the inhabitants will give David up rather than rebel against the king.
