Transitioning from the House of Saul to the House of David

The Hebron Concept
Today’s Focus: Transitioning from the House of Saul to the House of David
Scripture: 1 Chronicles 10:12-14; 13:1-3

Greetings Sons of God:
1 Chronicles 10:12-14: They arose, all the valiant men and took away the body of Saul, and the bodies of his sons, and brought them to Jabesh, and buried their bones under the oak in Jabesh, and fasted seven days.  So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against the Word of the Lord, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it and enquired not of the Lord: therefore he slew him and turned the kingdom unto David the son of Jesse.  

In our previous messages in this series we talked about how David loved Saul even unto death and when he reached this point of maturity, he was able to advance to Hebron.  Now notice that Saul and his sons were buried in a place called Jabesh which means ashamed, confused or disappointed, to dry up or whither away.  Saul’s house had fallen due to his transgressions against the Lord.  After this the Lord handed the kingdom over to David, the son of Jesse.  Now let me say this here and in the next series we will elaborate:

The house of Saul or spirit of Saul is the spirit of the Institutional church

Please keep that in mind because in the next message we will elaborate but look how the scripture ends.  It says the kingdom was handed over to David the son of Jesse.  What is this saying?  The Kingdom of God is arranged in a patriarchal model of fathers and sons and the Father has always intended to place His Son King to rule over His House and Holy Nation. It will be on the model of fathers and sons that the Father builds the Nation. But it will be at this position in the spirit called Hebron where the Holy Nation will unite and inaugurate Jesus Christ the King over this Holy Nation now watch this: 

1 Chronicles 13:1-3:  And David consulted with the captains of thousands and hundreds and with every leader.  And David said unto all the congregation of Israel, If it see good unto you, and that it be of the Lord our God, let us send abroad unto our brethren every where, that are left in all the land of Israel, and with them also to the priests and Levites which are in their cities and suburbs, that they may gather themselves unto us: And let us bring again the ark of our God to us: for we enquired not at it in the days of Saul

This is the picture of the gathering of Israel together at Hebron but more over a return of the Ark of the Covenant to Israel.  What does this mean?  Remember in our previous teaching series “The Ark of the Covenant and House of God” we said the Ark of the Covenant are the principles we are to live by in order to guarantee the presence of the Lord. Remember Israel went no where without the Ark leading them.  Inside the Ark we know were three items which represent three crucial principles:
1.    Golden Pot of Manna – Grace of God
2.    Aaron’s Rod – Theocratic Leadership
3.    Tablets of the Covenant – Covenant of Sonship

Everything is starting to come together or consolidate in this place called Hebron.  2013 will be a crucial year for the House of God because we will begin to see the consolidation and joining of the House of God into the Holy Nation.  We know that the Holy Nation is 12 spiritual tribes which are made up of clans, which are made up of households headed by fathers.

In the next teaching series we will examine how the spirit of Saul is the spirit of the Institutional church and how it is mandatory that we migrate to the house of David because the grace of God is in the model of fathers and sons and it is the sons of God that dominion is given to, not the slaves of Saul.

Building True Alliances

The Hebron Concept
Today’s Focus: Building True Alliances
Scripture: 1 Chronicles 11:1,2

Greetings Sons of God:
1 Chronicles 11:1,2; Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto Hebron, saying Behold we are thy bone and thy flesh.  And moreover in time past, even when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the Lord thy God said unto thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel.

The scripture says that all Israel gathered themselves unto David unto Hebron.  True alliances cannot be built by organizing, advertising, summoning or inviting.  In the Body of Christ, true alliances are formed by the Spirit of God and through the grace in a man as the set man or father over a household. 

Congregations can be built when the leader is amongst the sheep and he has an intimate relationship with them.  And like a true shepherd the father of the household is given grace to move people or lead them to a single location.  These people who have formed an true alliance will be attracted to the grace within the father or leader of the household. The culture of family and love must be present.  Now I know this is a little wordy but let’s look back at the scripture to prove it.

First, we know Hebron is the place of joining and the gathering of all Israel to David was to unite the nation and become one corporate man.  Now the people acknowledged that David was God’s anointed because they confessed in verse 2 that even though Saul was king it was David that led Israel out and in.  Hence the people were attracted to the grace that was within David.  David was anointed king at Hebron and Israel was all gathered there to anoint him. 

In the Body of Christ, God gives grace to spiritual fathers to help lead and mature the Body of Christ.  The Holy Spirit assembles the Body of Christ in households, then clans then tribes to form the Holy Nation.  When the Holy Spirit puts you within a household of faith, he has given grace to the father of that household to dispense the grace of God to you through the word of God.  This is how the fathers of the household feed the sheep or the sons of God within their care.

False Alliances and Monuments

The Hebron Concept
Today’s Focus: Spirit of Absalom Part 2: False Alliances and Monuments
Scripture: 2 Samuel 18:18

Greetings Sons of God:
The way Absalom tried to usurp the authority of his father David was the building of alliances.  Now these were not true alliances because they were alliances built on manipulation. Now from the previous message we see that the spirit of Absalom is all about self and does not seek to build the nation but seize control of power to control people.  For many people, especially in the church the spirit is in clear operation.  You have that one deacon, or minister that believes they can do a better job than the pastor and they began to spread that virus throughout the flock and turn the hearts of the people from the grace of God which is resident in the father of the household to themselves.  When the hearts of the people have turned they will turn on the true alliance that connects them with grace for the false alliance that promises them earthly pleasures and promises. 

Now Absalom had three sons and a daughter born to him but let me show you this scripture:

2 Samuel 18:18: Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the king’s dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day Absalom’s place.

Even though Absalom had sons and daughters, when he tried to usurp the authority of the sitting father of the house and king of the nation, David, then end result of his “reign” was a monument because when you build false alliances you cannot father a nation, you are too consumed with trying to maintain what you took through manipulation that your focus is not on maturing sons and seeing them advance and grow.  Your focus is on yourself and maintaining power. A true father desires for his children to do better than them.  The spirit of Absalom fights against this because it is consumed with self.  In the end the only thing left for Absalom because he was consumed with self all he could do is leave a monument for himself so that people would remember him.  Had he followed the grace of God he would have had sons that would have showed the legacy that he left through their life that they are living.  So many religious people and unfortunately people within the church who have this spirit seek to build monuments and building in their honor because they are the only ones who can do what they are doing and after they are dead and gone, that is it.  So many people follow this spirit and when the person deserts them or passes away, they are left without a shepherd and wandering because they put all their trust in the man and not the grace of God within the man.

We as the sons of God are not called to build or be monuments, but we are called to be a movement and ever building trans-genrationally through the model of fathers and sons.

The Spirit of Absalom

The Hebron Concept
Today’s Focus: The Spirit of Absalom

Greetings Sons of God:
Who is Absalom?  Absalom was a son of David born in Hebron (2 Samuel 3:3).  The name Absalom means Father of Peace or Father of my Peace.   Now you may wonder ok, this guy is cool. Not actually.  The spirit of Absalom can be a very destructive spirit and if allowed to stay amongst a body of believers, it can actually damage true alliances that have been formed. 

In 2 Samuel 15 we see the plot of Absalom.  Now I pray that you go and read this but for the sake of time and space I will give you the scriptures of the detail I will explain.  Absalom was a son who sought to usurp the authority of his father, David who was the reigning king over Israel but also the head of the tribe of Judah at that time. 

Absalom would manipulate people within Israel to try to turn the hearts of the people to him. 

2 Samuel 15:4: Absalom said moreover, Oh that I were made judge in the land, that every man which hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I would do him justice!

All of us have either said or herd someone say “If I were this or that, I would do..”. So Absalom was playing off what people wanted to hear and claim that him can bring them the judgment they desired.  He would go around Israel saying things like this and turning the hearts of the people of Israel. Absalom did not just stop with the people, he would go to his father’s personal counselor and turn his heart to him (2 Samuel 15:11,12).  Now with all of that said let’s look at the attributes of the spirit of Absalom.

The spirit of Absalom seeks to usurp the authority of the father of the household.  It is steeped in rebellion, contention, questioning integrity, charismatic expression and most of all self.

War Against the False and Birth of Sons

The Hebron Concept
Today’s Focus: War Against the False and Birth of Sons
Scripture: 2 Samuel 3

Greetings Sons of God:
2 Samuel 3:1: Now there was long war between the house of Saul and the house of David: but David waxed stronger and stronger, and ,the house of Saul waxed weaker and weaker.

One of the first things that will happen when you come to the Hebron position is there will be a war between the house of Saul and house of David.  What does that mean for the Body of Christ?  There will be a war between the truth and the false.  The house of Saul was still trying to hold power that they no were graced to have anymore.  David was anointed king of Israel by the elders, but he was graced by God to feed His people. In the next message we will look at the difference between the house of Saul and the house of David because there are crucial spiritual differences and for many of us we trapped in the house of Saul and need to migrate into the house of David.  But, why was David house getting stronger and the house of Saul?

When true relationships and formed and alliances are built under the grace of God, in which David did then as you consolidate more relationships you naturally become stronger.  In the house of Saul, relationship were not being consolidated but rather falling apart.  So as alliances are formed in Hebron the Body of Christ will become stronger and stronger. 

Next, sons will be born in Hebron.  David had six sons born to him at Hebron (2 Samuel 3:2-5).  These sons that are born of David are from his loins.  For the Body of Christ, these sons that are born of your loins is not natural sons but they are spiritual sons that you have been given by the Lord through the gospel.  See this is the season for fathers and sons and it is by spiritual fathers maturing sons that the Lord is consolidating His House and building His Temple in the Earth.  But it requires fathers to come to a Hebron position and when they come to this position, sons will be given to them by the Lord. 

Now we know as we are growing and building, the enemy is seeking to destroy and defile the work of God.  Now how he plans to do it when we get to a Hebron position is very destructive and deceptive and if you are not aware of the move of the enemy, you will find yourself in exile and all many of the people you built alliances with will turn on you.
