David To See His Son
« on: September 04, 2009, 08:11:52 AM »
Okay, so in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eymEbCH3_ZM&feature=related which I posted about on another thread) the guy talks about how David, although he mourned about the loss of his son, knew that he would see his son again. Assumably then, God won't be casting David's son in to Hell for all eternity. lol

Does anybody know where this story is in Scripture?

  here it is Tim ,
  I know that when I read this I thought of Davids   words 

    I will go to him , he cannot  not return to me  :HeartThrob:rose
 
 
 2Sa 12:1  And the LORD sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor. 


 2Sa 12:2   The rich [man] had exceeding many flocks and herds: 


 2Sa 12:3   But the poor [man] had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter. 


 2Sa 12:4   And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him. 


 2Sa 12:5   And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, [As] the LORD liveth, the man that hath done this [thing] shall surely die: 


 2Sa 12:6   And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity. 


 2Sa 12:7  And Nathan said to David, Thou [art] the man. Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I anointed thee king over Israel, and I delivered thee out of the hand of Saul; 


 2Sa 12:8   And I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives into thy bosom, and gave thee the house of Israel and of Judah; and if [that had been] too little, I would moreover have given unto thee such and such things. 


 2Sa 12:9   Wherefore hast thou despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in his sight? thou hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife [to be] thy wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon. 


 2Sa 12:10   Now therefore the sword shall never depart from thine house; because thou hast despised me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be thy wife. 


 2Sa 12:11   Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house, and I will take thy wives before thine eyes, and give [them] unto thy neighbour, and he shall lie with thy wives in the sight of this sun. 


 2Sa 12:12   For thou didst [it] secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun. 


 2Sa 12:13   And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against the LORD. And Nathan said unto David, The LORD also hath put away thy sin; thou shalt not die. 


 2Sa 12:14   Howbeit, because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also [that is] born unto thee shall surely die. 


 2Sa 12:15   And Nathan departed unto his house. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick. 


 2Sa 12:16   David therefore besought God for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth. 


 2Sa 12:17   And the elders of his house arose, [and went] to him, to raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them. 


 2Sa 12:18   And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? 


 2Sa 12:19   But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. 


 2Sa 12:20   Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed [himself], and changed his apparel, and came into the house of the LORD, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat. 


 2Sa 12:21   Then said his servants unto him, What thing [is] this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, [while it was] alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. 


 2Sa 12:22   And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell [whether] GOD will be gracious to me, that the child may live? 


 2Sa 12:23   But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

And thankfully for David, he did not rage against his loss till the day he himself died.   I think the worst possible way to leave this world would be with a heart filled with rage.
Ours is not to make up anybody's mind, but to open hearts.
You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind.

Galations
20 With Christ have I been crucified, yet I am living; no longer I, but living in me is Christ. Now that which I am now living in flesh, I am living in faith that is of the Son of God, Who loves me, and gives Himself up for me.
