Covenants are binding in God’s sight, but are still broken because of sin!
“Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour,”Ecclesiastes 10:1.
Many of you have binding covenants in the eyes of the LORD, but because of sin, they are not honored in the presence of God almighty!
The LORD is speaking and he is saying that he has moved and assigned many of you to different regions and locations, because of the Sauls in your life!
You see, even though Saul had the whole kingdom in his hands, he was still not satisfied with what and who David was! David was an humble man and he did all that he could to stay out of king Sauls way, but the evil spirit constantly drove Saul to seek out David’s life!
Could it be that the oil on your life, like David, has caused the Sauls in your life to kill you?
The LORD had given king Saul everything a king could ever want and still he sought to kill, dishonor and to bad mouth David, no matter what David did, except to play the harp to comfort Saul, it seemed that Saul still wanted to kill the anointing and the inheritance that God had promised unto him!
Saul could have took this opportunity to train and to support his spiritual son David, but instead all he could see and find in David was a cause to kill him!
But God! God had a ram in the bush who would be their to comfort and to support David in his times of despair! The kings own son; Jonathan.
Jonathan made a covenant with David because he loved him just as he loved himself.
(You see, when you love someone and you have a covenant relationship with them you will bear no ill will in your heart against them! Like king Saul did!!)
Jonathan took off the robe he was wearing and gave it to David.
(Come on somebody! How can you say you love me and you can’t wait to put the daggers in my back or up to my throat? How you say you love me and you never said a kind word to me unless it was in the dark or behind closed doors so no one would be able to witness it; especially the ones you spoke ill of me to but yet you are suppose to be my brother, my sister and or my ace boon-coon and our hearts knitted together like Jonathan and David?)
He also gave him his military clothes. He even gave him his sword, his bow and his belt, 1 Samuel 3-4.
My, my, my! Jonathan’s covenant with David was like a promise (vow between him and God!) to be best friends forever. He was saying, “What’s mine is yours.”
As you will see that this friendship lasted throughout both of their lifetimes, and that these men would risk their lives for one another in every way that counted in order to bring about justice to David and trust to their relationship!
It was a friendship based on trust and obedience to God something God wants us all to have weather we are in the presence of one another or far away in another country or region! You see, it is the Holy Ghost who is what binds and unites our hearts in love to bind and rebuke the conflict and the friction that Satan brings to bring disunity! Just as it did king Saul who had disobey God and had caused the evil spirit to enter his heart to betray and to kill David!
David’s success and popularity made Saul even angrier with David. He came up with another plan.
(King Saul was constantly lying, scheming and plotting to kill David and not only did he try to kill him but he used those in his kingdom to come against him! And, many took the bate and went along with him; however many did not and tried to help David escape the wrath of evil king Saul!)
He offered to let David marry his oldest daughter, if David would continue to fight his wars.
Sounds familiar? Your pastor or so called ‘king Saul leaders’ will promise you that you can preach, teach, carry their suit case, lead worshiper etc., but it is only to manipulate, control and to deceive you into doing what is best for them and has nothing to do with a binding covenant relationship between you and God almighty regarding your destiny etc.!
But, Saul hoped the philistines would kill David in battle. But very humbly, David said the he was not important enough to marry the king’s daughter. So Saul let another man marry her.
Then Saul found out that his other daughter, Michal, was in love with David. He wanted to try his plan again. Saul had his attendants talk to David about marrying Michal. Again, David said he was not important enough to be the king’s son-in-law.
Since David felt unworthy to marry the king’s daughter, Saul told him he could “earn” the right to join the royal family by killing 100 Philistines. David agreed to this. He went out and killed 200 Philistines, and Saul gave David his daughter to marry.
My, my, my! Every good and perfect gift comes from God and heaven above and it adds no sorrow with it! Just because it seems good doesn’t mean God gave it! Discern people; discern!
Saul realized that the LORD was with David. He also realized that his daughter Michal loved David. So Saul became even more afraid of him.
(Come on somebody – all the evil Saul tried to harm David with God turned it around as a blessing for David!)
In this hour God is saying do not worry about the Sauls in your life and those that are trying to kill your anointing (oil), because I have a seat already prepared for you in the presence of your enemy!
Your enemies are going to get to see you sit in this seat that God has prepared, but they will not get to eat from the table, because God is going to let them sit at the table but they shall not be served! Just like king Saul who was killed in battle but it was his lips that confirmed that God indeed had called David and David was a better man than him!
You see, Saul remained David’s enemy as long as he was king. The Philistine commanders kept on going out to battle. Every time they did, David had more success (why? Because it is in the battle that God is making and purifying you to take your rightful place and to sit you in the high places in his kingdom!) against them than the rest of Saul’s officers. So his name became well known, (1 Samuel 18:28-30).
My God, who will give you a great name? But David’s wife Michal warned him. (The same daughter king Saul had given him as a stumbling block blessed him!) She said, “You must run for your life tonight. If you don’t, tomorrow you will be killed.” So Michael helped David escape through a window. He ran and got away, (1 Samuel 19:11).
Then she did something very clever. She took a statue and put it in David’s bed, and covered it with clothes. She even took some goat hair and put it at the top where his head would have been. When Saul’s men (his gnomes and his pigeons! The Sauls always have some one who will spy on the David’s to keep them in check!
Notice: David never spied on king Saul or sent folk to do him harm, but it was always Saul who had the evil spirit working evil against this great man of God!
He came looking for David, Michal told them that he was sick in bed. When the men reported this to Saul, he said, “Bring him up here to me in his bed. Then I’ll kill him.” Can you imagine that? So the men went to get David, bed and all, and they realized it was a statue in the bed. And that they had been tricked!
So David said, “Tomorrow is the time for the new moon feast. I’m supposed to eat with the king. But let me go and hide in the field. I’ll stay there until the evening of the day after tomorrow.
(The LORD in this season is using persecution and trials to move His people into the arms of destiny, their inheritance so do not fret because of the evil doers!)
David said to Jonathan your father might miss me. If he does, then tell him, ‘David begged me to let him hurry home to Bethlehem. (A divine plan to catch the enemy in action!) A yearly sacrifice is being offered there for his whole family group.’ your father (Saul) might say, ‘that’s all right.’ if he does, it will mean I’m safe. But he might become very angry. If he does, you can be sure he’s made up his mind to harm me, 1 Samuel 20:5-7.
However, just as David had said king Saul became angry! So David hid before the festival began. On the first night of the new moon, Saul noticed that David was missing, but he didn’t say anything, but on the second night, he noticed David’s place was empty again.
(The enemy never wants the David’s out of their sight because the sweet oil on the David’s life draws and attacks the enemy and sugar always attracts the flies!)
So, Saul asked Jonathan where David was. Jonathan told his father the story that David had made up about going home to see his family.
Saul burned with anger against Jonathan. He said to him, “You are an evil son. You have refused to obey me. (the Sauls will pull rank, use scare tactics, intimidation and manipulation to get their way! They are control freaks in power!) I know that you are on the side of Jesse’s son. (guilt/ condemnation) you should be ashamed of that. And your mother should be ashamed of having a son like you. You will never be king as long as Jesse’s son lives on this earth. (fear/ rejection) and you will never have a kingdom either. So send for the son of Jesse. Bring him to me. He must die!” 1 Samuel 20:30-31.
The LORD has a plan for those who are plotting and planning the fall of his people in this season and he is going to begin to show the hands of the Sauls in this hour! For, those that are using their authority and their position to kill, manipulate and to control others!
Not, only are they carrying a Saul spirit but they are walking in the spirit of Jezebel and their oil has become tainted, spoiled and the only thing it is good for is the files and throwing out to the dogs to eat!
A stinking savior can help you to produce no oil; and nor can it bring forth a covenant relationship with the David’s in God’s Kingdom!
