The Advent of the Covenant upon King David-Part 1

Published by Wind on

“Ye, tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I fear no evil for Thou art with me …”

The courage of King David, exemplified in this verse 1000 years before the Advent of his Messiah, flowed from his obedience to the First Commandment revealed by Lord Moses:

“I am the Lord thy God thou shalt have no other god beside Me …” Exodus 20:3

In the Septuagint this is: οὐκ ἔσονταί σοι θεοὶ ἕτεροι πλὴν ἐμοῦ.

“I am the Lord thy God thou shalt have no additional god other than Me …”

The Second Commandment shows how to be dutiful to the first, again from the Septuagint:

verse 4 (οὐ ποιήσεις σεαυτῷ εἴδωλον …) “You shall not make for yourself an idol, whether in the form of anything that is in heaven above, or that is on the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. verse 5 (οὐ προσκυνήσεις αὐτοῖς οὐδὲ μὴ λατρεύσῃς αὐτοῖς) “You shall not bow your self to them nor serve your self …”

The three locales in verse four are allusions to three aspects of self: the mind, the heart and the unconscious. Thus we are instructed not to submit to the false gods of ideology, nor those of our overt desires, nor those of our covert desires. We are not to revere them, nor are we to serve our own selves as gods.

We are not to fear any of the false gods — however powerful they may seem in this world, nor are we to revere them — however alluring their appearance.

Too many have failed to obey God’s Command. Not only have they worshiped false gods erected by the religions they have even fallen prey to new gods! For do we not witness at this very moment a worldwide submission to the forces of Technocracy, Popular Opinion and The State?

“They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit; his name in Hebrew is Abad’don, and in Greek he is called Apol’lyon.” Revelation 9:11

Abad’don signifies enslavement and Apol’lyon signifies fear.

When humanity fails to turn to the Only Real God it becomes fearful, weak and vulnerable — falling prey to predatory would-be-gods. This is the root cause of all dis-ease, an invisible plague assailing the world.

By what power was King David free of the influence of such goliathan monsters?
