Israel: a miracle to stay! - Justice

Justice

Forgiveness precedes justice! We can learn from King David's actions how forgiveness brings justice about. In 2 Samuel chapters 15 to 19 we can reed that King David with his household and those loyal to him had to flee Jerusalem because his son Absalom plotted with David's trusted advisor Ahithophel (2 Samuel 15:12,16:23) to become king.

It was a very sad day. For it was King David the anointed one of the Almighty Father, who brought unity in the hole of Israel, brought the ark of the covenant to Jerusalem and in doing so made Jerusalem (Salem, Genesis 14:18-20) the capital city of a united kingdom of Israel and brought peace to Israel's boarders, that was fleeing Jerusalem because of his own son. King David with his household and others amongst whom his heroes, with whom he fought many battles and would even defeated the giants like Goliath's brother (2 Samuel 21:21:15-22), were leaving Jerusalem to hide in the dessert.

... 23 The whole countryside wept aloud as all the people passed by. The king also crossed the Kidron Valley, and all the people moved on toward the wilderness.
24 Zadok was there, too, and all the Levites who were with him were carrying the ark of the covenant of God. They set down the ark of God, and Abiathar offered sacrifices until all the people had finished leaving the city.

25 Then the king said to Zadok, “Take the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the LORD's eyes, he will bring me back and let me see it and his dwelling place again. 26 But if he says, 'I am not pleased with you,’ then I am ready; let him do to me whatever seems good to him.”  ...

27 The king also said to Zadok the priest, “Do you understand? Go back to the city with my blessing. ...

30 But David continued up the Mount of Olives, weeping as he went; his head was covered and he was barefoot. All the people with him covered their heads too and were weeping as they went up.

2 Samuel 15

On his way out of Jerusalem, King David and all those with him encountered Shimei that cursed him and even called him a murderer, 2 Samuel 16:5-14. He had two choices, to order his heroes who were with him to kill Shimei. or forgive Shimei and leave justice to be done by the Almighty Father in his way and at his time. King David chose the later, and added a prayer, 2 Samuel 16:12 (Deuteronomy 16:23:5-6):

12 It may be that the LORD will look upon my misery and restore to me his covenant blessing instead of his curse today.”

In Psalm 109:28 King David says:

28 While they curse, may you bless; may those who attack me be put to shame, but may your servant rejoice.

King David acted with wisdom because he counted on the Almighty Fathers mercy and blessing. And, did he receive it? Yes, he did return victorious to Jerusalem, although grieving for his son who got killed, 2 Samuel 18 and 19. Shimei? 1 Kings 2 verses 8 to 9 tells us King David asked his son Salomon to do him justice, and he did as 1 Kings 2:36-46 tells us. And Ahithophel? 2 Samuel 17:23 tells us about his faith; he hanged himself up (Just like Judas who betrayed Yeshua Messiah did). So King David didn't first have justice done so he could continue his life. No, he forgave first, and than God's blessing and justice followed.

So, it's a no, to revolution mania. No, to chaos in Israel, that would endanger the state of Israel and there for also all the settlements in Samaria and Judea. No, to fear, anger and hate. If the enemy, those who did the killings in the settlement and those who sent them, don't achieve their ultimate goal, that is chaos in Israel so they can take over, they lost this battle. And, there is more.
