“Absalom – Our Righteous God has no Pleasure in a Sinner’s Death” – Bro. Jeff Price – Camp Meeting 2012
In Camp Meeting 2012 Bro. Jeff Price shared “Absalom – Our Righteous God has no Pleasure in a Sinner’s Death” He uses Absalom’s rebellion against his father, King David, (2 Samuel 15 to 19) as an allegory of our lost spiritual state. Just as David loved Absalom and mourned his death, in spite of his uprising, God loves man, even in sin and rebellion, and desires our deliverance. Though a just and righteous God must absolutely punish sin, rebellion and unrighteousness, He says “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked… for why will ye die, O house of Israel?” (Ezekiel 33:11). The penalty for our sin and transgressions is provided in deliverance with Christ’s sacrifice to forgive sin and provide the earnest of His spirit in our hearts!!
