Scripture: 2 Samuel 11:3, 23:34
2 Samuel 11:3 tells us that Bathsheba was Eliam’s daughter and Eliam was Ahithophel’s son, therefore Bathsheba was Ahithophel’s granddaughter. 2 Samuel 23:34 confirms this. Personal offense became the motivation for Ahithophel’s actions. Family connections explain Ahithophel’s actions. The lesson for us is we must imitate David in our response. As we face a God-hater, intent on outlawing the church’s freedom, we must respond with Spirit-led judicial prayer! It is incumbent on us to initiate the moving of God’s Hand in order to make our enemies our footstool. If we do not take the first step, then God is waiting on us and we end up losing ground. The church has lost ground for many decades because they have not entered this dimension. The time for the church to arise is now!
