Adonijah, King David and Solomon

This is a repost from 2017 – the message talks about the era of transitioning.


Last Friday, March 17 I post many interesting facts that I’ve understood about a biblical transition between King David handing over his reign to his son Solomon.  I only posted the scripture without any input from my writing. The Word explanation is life and powerful all by its self.

As I often ask the Lord where are we and what is happening in our earth from heavens perspective?

Now according to the scriptures pertaining to Adonijah, what does the battle between elder brother Adonijah and the 2nd son Solomon is about?  It’s about the battle of 5 things:

1. Law and Grace

2. The enemy for the position of power.

3. The law living in the position of power.l

4.  The reign of the totality of grace – Solomon Temple and the extended presence of Christ in the body of Christ.

5. Faith through Love living.

The enemy of Grace coming into the lives of God church body, Adonijah, in his mischievous kind of why tried to under handedly attempted to steal the position during a transitioning time without the King David realizing it. Adonijah knew his father King David was sick in bed and wasn’t fully equipped to oversee the kingdom.  Because of the promise to David that his son Solomon will inherit the reign of his kingdom, someone from the field watching Adonijah’s error, who  understand protocol ran to the house of David and revealed the treacherous act.  At that moment the King David raised from his bed and placed the coat – King David had the original coat; placed the Kings robe on his son Solomon.

The story has many connotations to feed on for adequate accuracy of His Word for the 2017 current year. Solomon reign as King blessed the nation with the measurement of Solomon’s temple — which is the temple of you.

Be blessed as you read the story.


Here is the Friday scripture posting from Friday.

The Execution of Adonijah

1Kings 2:24-26

…24″Now therefore, as the LORD lives, who has established me and set me on the throne of David my father and who has made me a house as He promised, surely Adonijah shall be put to death today.”

25So King Solomon sent Benaiah the son of Jehoiada; and he fell upon him so that he died.

26Then to Abiathar the priest the king said, “Go to Anathoth to your own field, for you deserve to die; but I will not put you to death at this time, because you carried the ark of the Lord GOD before my father David, and because you were afflicted in everything with which my father was afflicted.”…

So King Solomon gave orders to Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and he struck down Adonijah and he died.
