The Lord Gave Victory
During his reign, King David struck down his enemies according to God’s purposes, which were to enact judgment against those who opposed His rule and to preserve a people for Himself. Examining David’s military victories in 2 Samuel 8, Alistair Begg encourages us to see the king’s actions as a foreshadow of the future ultimate victory of the Lord Jesus Christ. To this day, we wait in eager expectation for Christ’s return, when He will subdue every foe—even death—beneath His feet.
