Hebrew Names of GOD in 2Samuel
JESUS CHRIST in 2Samuel
David and his reign look to the coming of the Messiah. Chapter 7 especially anticipates the future King. God intercepts David’s plans to build a house for the ark and explains that while David cannot build Him a house, God is building David a house, that is, a lineage that will last forever.
In his victory over all Israel’s enemies, his humility and commitment to the Lord, his zeal for the house of God, his combining of the offices of prophet, priest, and king—David is a forerunner of the Root of Jesse, Jesus Christ.
HOLY SPIRIT in 2Samuel
He functioned most often through the priest. He is seen working as counsellor in the many times David would “inquire of the LORD” through the priest and the ephod.
The convincing or convicting work of the Spirit is seen clearly with Nathan the prophet confronting David about his sin with Bathsheba and Uriah. David’s sin is laid bare, righteousness is accomplished, and the judgment is spelled out. This, in microcosm, illustrates the broad working of the Holy Spirit in the world, through the Spirit empowered church.
