Want to be Healthy? Eat a Well Balanced Diet.

History is a major part of our spiritual food. In studying the Word of God, we need to know the culture and language of the people, and to know what the words mean in the original language (Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic) in order to rightly divide the Word of Truth). David wrote many songs about His thirst for God.

Jesus’ Line of Ancestry Through Kings – David Whose Throne Jesus Will Sit on

David  was an adulterer and murderer, yet he was a man after God’s own heart (1 Samuel 13:14, Acts 13:22). And Samuel said to Jesse, send and bring him. For we will not sit down till he comes here.  So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with bright eyes, and good-looking. And the Lord said, arise, anoint him; for this is the one (1 Samuel 16:12). 

For those who do not believe or accept what I am writing about people of color, you do not accept what the Word of God says. I did not write the Bible; I write what is in the Bible. Let God be true but every man a liar (Romans 3:4).

Adam was red, ruddy  - the Hebrew word אדמה ( adamah) is the feminine form of אדם meaning "ground" (see Genesis 2:7). The word/name אדום (Edom) means "red". Each of these words has the common meaning of "red". Dam is the "red" blood, adamah is the "red" ground, edom 


Isaac’s son Esau was born with a red complexion. Genesis 25:25  David was red and good-looking 1 Samuel 16:12

Clay- In the Old Testament, oudem is translated “red clay.” Oudem is the root word indicating mankind. Thus, red represents humanity. But, on a larger scale, red represents the love of God represented in and through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

But now, O Lord, You are our Father; we are the clay, and You our Potter; and all we are the work of Your hand (Isaiah 64:8).


Let’s talk about David who was a man after God’s own heart, yet he committed two horrific acts. 


Then it happened one evening that David arose from his bed and walked on the roof of the king’s house. And from the roof he saw a woman bathing, and the woman was very beautiful to behold.  So David sent and inquired about the woman. And someone said, is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?


Then David sent messengers, and took her; and she came to him, and he lay with her, for she was cleansed from her impurity; and she returned to her house. And the woman conceived; so she sent and told David, and said, I am with child. When the wife of Uriah heard that Uriah her husband was dead, she mourned for her husband. 

 And when her mourning was over, David sent and brought her to his house, and she became his wife and bore him a son. But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord (2 Samuel, chapter 11, please read the entire chapter).


So it was, while Joab besieged the city, that he assigned Uriah to a place where he knew there were valiant men. Then the men of the city came out and fought with Joab. And some of the people of the servants of David fell; and Uriah the Hittite died also.

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David (Luke 1:32).

Although David suffered consequences for his sins, God still used him mightily. He wrote most of the Psalms. My point is, no matter how many bad things someone does, God can still use them. That’s Love!
