4. He didn't allow fame, glory, power, and riches, to derail him and take the place of God in his life.

3. He earnestly desired to do what pleases God and keep His Commandments.

This is one of King David's qualities that many appear to be oblivious of, as they often use just one or two instances in David's life where he fell into sin to define him. Hence their claims that he was just favored by God, as some even say he was a worse sinner than Saul, but it was just God's favor that caused His preferential treatment of David as compared to Saul.

Some even cite his praise singing as factorial in that, but this was what God Himself had to say concerning that:

1 Kings 3:14 (KJV)

And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

So God showed by this His saying to David's son, Solomon, His opinion about David and why He treated David the special way He did even though David fell into sin in one or two occasions. It was not because of favor as many think, but because David devoted himself to do whatever God required of Him and kept His commandments.

So it doesn't matter what men give as the reason David was so loved by God and the special way He treated him, because this was the opinion of God Himself. This should also be the opinion of those who are truly of God concerning David, because having a contrary opinion to that as many do, would be ungodly. For even Saul himself who some of them claim to be more righteous than David, admitted that David was more righteous than he was, which was in agreement with God's opinion concerning David. 1 Samuel 24:17

Perhaps such contrary opinion of men in this regard explains what God meant when He said David had given His enemies as great occasion to blaspheme, as that blasphemy has continued unabated til this very day even though it happened millenniums ago.

But it was because of such things which David did as keeping God's commandments that made God decide to take that big one for Him regardless, because David had done what God required of him and was there for God when God needed someone, therefore God was also there for David when he needed Him the most.

2. He was selfless and humble leader who
cared about the sheep. He was willing to lay down his life for them.


"Sheep" in this instance implies the people he led, however before David became a leader of the people, he was also a leader of sheep in the literal sense even as a youth, as two of his achievements which he listed to king Saul to prove he was qualified to take on Goliath despite being just a youth and not a man of war, was how he saved a lamb from the mouths of both a lion and a bear, as he said:

"Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.
Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God."
1 Samuel 17:34-36

Therefore he showed on those occasions that he really cared about his earthly father's sheep as he risked his life to save theirs. Perhaps that was what prepared him and gave him the experience he required for the real deal, which was to lead his heavenly Father's sheep, Israel. So what he did to save the lives of his earthly father's sheep from the mouths of the lion and the bear on those occasions, was the same thing he wanted to do on that occasion to save the lives of his heavenly Father's sheep from the hands of Goliath the giant, which was to put his life on the line.

That was not the only time but just one of the several occasions where he showed his exemplary and selfless leadership qualities, and how much he cared about the Lord's sheep.

He was a king that would lead by example even in the battle front as on this occasion when he "almost" got killed:

2 Samuel 21:15-17 (KJV)

Moreover the Philistines had yet war again with Israel; and David went down, and his servants with him, and fought against the Philistines: and David waxed faint.
And Ishbi-benob, which was of the sons of the giant, the weight of whose spear weighed three hundred shekels of brass in weight, he being girded with a new sword, thought to have slain David.
But Abishai the son of Zeruiah succoured him, and smote the Philistine, and killed him. Then the men of David sware unto him, saying, Thou shalt go no more out with us to battle, that thou quench not the light of Israel.


So this selfless and examplary leadership attitude of king David made the people of Israel who he led to love him so dearly, that they consider him to be their greatest ever king.

But most significantly, this was one of the qualities that also showed why he was a man after God's heart.

before you are accepted as born again they must hear u speak in tongue, I know what I am saying, I was there
I'm not saying it wasn't true. What i'm saying is if they did that, they didn't do the right thing because that misleads people and forces them to pretend to be speaking in tongues. I was truly born again for several years, but I wasn't able to speak in tongues. Even when I began to feel the power of the Spirit of God upon me, it still took some days before I was given the utterance to do so. So it's better to not to force people, so that they'd wait for the real thing and not settle for the fake.

Jesus gave us the answer when he said out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks {Luke 6:45} meaning people only use the mouth to share what is in their hearts. So the dumb who have accepted Christ share what's in their hearts through "sign language".

Romans 10:13-15 say only those who call on his name will be saved, but how can this be if the don't believe in him, how can they believe if they've not heard, how can they hear without someone to preach?

So once they're able to put away the old personality and out on the new one {Colossians 3:9-10} and also help others to do the same they are already doing God's will, therefore they're better of than the dead who can't even do anything to praise God! smiley
Jesus didn't say we confess with our mouths unto salvation.

But are you saying the dumb confess with sign language unto salvation?

Just come and learn how true disciple making is done amongst Jehovah's Witnesses!

There are hundreds of thousand dumb preachers and teachers of God's word in our midst, God's organization began training JWs to learn the language of the deaf, because Jesus sent us to preach and teach all the people of the nations.
So if we fail to carry along the deaf and dumb in the society then our work is not successful, that's why the Organization of Jehovah's Witnesses have trained many how to speak the language of the deaf and dumb, so we now have many congregations (Churches) of Jehovah's Witnesses where the deaf and dumb are preaching and teaching about Jesus in their neighbourhood! smiley
You did everything but answer the question. How does the dumb confess with their mouths unto salvation?

What does "born again" mean again
Spiritual rebirth/to be born of the Spirit, and that's different from being saved. But you must be saved first before you become born again. If they said that as a born again you must speak in tongues, that's different from you must speak in tongues before you become born again. Although the idea itself that as a born again someone must speak in tongues is not necessarily true because it may not happen immediately.

Believe (Faith) is sufficiently enough for our salvation. We believe with heart not with mouth. Confession is affirmation or testimony of what we believe in heart. John 3:16

By believing in their heart that Jesus is Lord alone is enough. God hears sees our heart and that is the most important thing.

Some may even confess with their mouth but not agree with their heart. So

I hope this is not a satirical post though.

This is a very serious matter. It involves souls that Jesus shed His blood for. So it's definitely not a joke but a matter of eternal life and death. I just put up the picture to show that it's possible for someone not to have a mouth. I couldn't find any that signified dumbness. Thanks.

Deuteronomy 29:29 (KJV) The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

What people do with their heart is really their and God's business and don't need your mediation, Mr man.

We have God's complete word of which you're very nearly adequate to adjust.

I'm done with you.

But the earlier you stop editing the scriptures to suit your weakness, the better for your eyeball destiny.
