2 Samuel 2:3-4


2 Samuel 2:3 And David brought up the men who were with him, every man with his household. So they dwelt in the cities of Hebron. Then the men of Judah came, and there they anointed David king over the house of Judah.

And now, Admonition, brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ

In Second Samuel, Chapter two, and in verse four we read, Then the men of Judah came. And there they anointed David king over the house of Judah.

These leaders of Judah come and they anoint David as their king. Let me ask you a question. Whoever gave them authority to anoint the King? The answer is no one. Samuel had already anointed David as King. And it was simply a matter of waiting until Saul’s life was over before he would take that throne, or have it given to him by God that is.

These men had no authority to anoint David or to oppose him because he was the Lord’s anointed.
