So David departed from there and escaped to the cave of Adullam; and when his brothers and all his father’s household heard of it, they went down there to him. 2Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented gathered to him; and he became captain over them. Now there were about four hundred men with him. 1 Samuel 22:1-2
Adullam עֲדֻלָּם = Hiding Place, Refuge, Retreat.
The Cave Adullam Was 2 Miles From Where King David Slew Goliath. This Is Where David Stood Firm In The God Of Israel And Defeated The Enemy Of Israel Whiles Saul And His Army Stood In Fear At The Shear Size Of Goliath.
It’s Here Where The:
- The Distressed = Matsoq = Those In Stress, Worry & Troubled
- Those In Debt = Nasha = Greatly Deceived, Beguiled
- The Discontented = Marah = Great Bitterness
Gathered To David Who Became Their Captain. David Could Have Killed Saul Many Times, Yet His Chose Not To, And Because Of The Character Of David The Lord God Blessed David & All Who Acknowledged Him As King.
The Believers Are Hidden In Christ Jesus Who Is Our Refuge As Stated In Colossians Chapter 3.
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.Psalm 46:1
The World Needs Believers Who Walk In The Character Of Christ Jesus Our Lord, Saviour, Shepherd & King. The Body Of Christ Is Only Recognised By It’s Head, It’s Captain!!! Only In Christ Jesus Are Believers Held Together & Stand Firm In The Holy Spirit Who Gives Us The Power Of God, The Love Of God & The Sound Mind Of God
Glory Be to Abba Father, Through Yeshua Our Lord and Saviour — By The Power of The Holy Spirit
