2 Samuel (1999)

2 Samuel 24:25

2 Samuel 24:1-25

Vintage message from November 7, 1999. We are never truly right with God until we allow God to expose who we are, until we allow God to deal with our issues of sin, and sometimes it’s painful… Oftentimes we find ourself saying [this] of ourself, “I’m the ruler of my castle. I’m the ruler of my existence. I’m the one that has the right to make the decisions for myself. God, leave me alone!” But we truly do not want…
2 Samuel 23:8

2 Samuel 23:1-39

Vintage message from October 31, 1999. One of the things that I believe God calls us to the most is knowing who we are, where we’re at in Him. And just because we’ve walked right with the Lord in our younger years does not necessarily mean that we’re going to walk right with the Lord as we get older. It’s a daily evaluation. A daily checking our hearts against His Word. Daily getting into His Word to find out if…
2 Samuel 22:2

2 Samuel 22:1-51

Vintage message from October 24, 1999. When was the last time that you knew that God delighted in you? I’m here to tell you, God delights in you. I don’t care who you are. I don’t care what you’ve done. God, the God of eternity, Who sees past, present, and future, knows everything about you. God Who created you created you for a purpose. Not to be His slave, but to walk in love relationship with you! He delights in…
2 Samuel 21:22

2 Samuel 21:15-22

Vintage message from October 17, 1999. You and I, in our lives, will face giants, and we are asked to stand against these giants. Now, of course, it’s not like it was in [King] David’s day where you just pull a sword out and whack off some guy’s head because he wants to argue with you. I sometimes wish it was that easy, but God says, “No! The sword that you use today is the sword of My Word. The…
2 Samuel 21:14

2 Samuel 21:1-14

Vintage message from October 10, 1999. Zeal is not always what God wants. Sometimes honesty and humility is what God calls for. Patience, temperance, long-suffering is what God calls for… And this is where, I believe, we need to learn a lesson. That sometimes God allows things to happen. Even though it’s very uncomfortable for us, God allows for it to happen, because He’s using us either for an example and other people are watching, or because He’s simply using…
2 Samuel 20:2

2 Samuel 20:1-26

Vintage message from October 3, 1999. The problem that we struggle with in society most today is not who happens to be the president over the United States, what’s happening over in the Middle East, what earthquakes are happening here and there, [or] what natural disasters are draining our financial resources. Those things are the things you hear about on the daily news. The problem within our society today is the same as the problem in society back in [King]…
2 Samuel 19:22

2 Samuel 19:9-43

Vintage message from September 26, 1999. (Original recording was cut off at the end.) As I read this chapter…it made me think of the day that Jesus returns once again to this world. Jesus, our King. God has given us in His Word prophecy that says that one day the King will return… This world today has put men over themselves to rule and reign over them. Those men come and go, but this world does not speak of bringing…
2 Samuel 18:22

2 Samuel 18:19-19:8

Vintage message from September 19, 1999. Sometimes I do things for the Lord believing that, in the end, there will be a reward. Sometimes I step into service to God, and I think when I step in, when I volunteer, when I say, “Yes, I’ll do it,” that when I get to the end that there’s going to be some reward; a pat on the back; a “well done.” And this is the attitude I told you that God was…
2 Samuel 18:4

2 Samuel 18:1-18

Vintage message from September 12, 1999. This is one of the most important understandings as believers that we can come to in our life: outside of receiving Jesus into our life, I would say the next important thing that we need to know, that we need to understand, is that then we need to be faithful, and we spend the rest of our Christian walk learning how to be faithful… And as I grew older and as I walked closer…
2 Samuel 17:21

2 Samuel 17:15-29

Vintage message from September 5, 1999. (The original message was cut off at the end.) How many of you have found yourself facing a struggle, facing a hardship as a believer in God, saying to God, “This was not supposed to happen this way. If You’re God, why didn’t You take care of it before it got to this place?”… We are all called to serve God in one way or another, and let me tell you, regardless of what…
2 Samuel 17:14

2 Samuel 16:15-17:14

Vintage message from August 22, 1999. This is a battle that we fight still today: who is it that has the right, the authority, the place to tell us what to do? Who is it that we listen to? Who is it that we submit to? Who has the right to tell us what to do? And isn’t this at the core of most of the problems that we have in life today? It is my right to do what…
2 Samuel 15:26

2 Samuel 15:1-16:14

Vintage message from August 15, 1999. (The tape broke near the end.) How often do we find ourselves in the midst of trials, in the midst of problems, and actually find ourselves caring about other people more than the current problem we’re going through? Do you realize that this is exactly where Jesus was?… And when was the last time you said this to yourself in the midst of a trial or in the midst of a struggle? God has…
