The Six-Fingered, Six-Toe Giant!
Before technology, the only amusement we had while waiting in line at the grocery store were the silly headlines from the National Enquirer or The Star magazines. It was the publishers intent to use crazy headlines to intrigue us to either thumb through the magazine or actually buy it.
Of all the unbelievable headlines posted above, only one stands true. Can you guess which one?
Unless you actually have physical evidence of any of the first three existing, it is the six-fingered,
Within the context of the Bible, when you mention the name King David you would most associate him with fighting the giant Goliath, who stood at 9 feet, 9 inches tall. Most people tend to forget that later on David would have to fight another giant with different physical attributes, the six-fingered, six-toe giant.
When David fought Goliath he was just a young lad, anointed by the Lord, and he was full of faith.
Moreover David said, " The Lord, who delivered me from the paw of the lion and from the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of the Philistine." (1 Samuel 17:37)
After David became King, he kind of took advantage of his throne, though is heart remained pure with the Lord. David gave in to sin and his life became like an episode of Scandal: lust, plots, lies, schemes, intrigue, cover ups and murder. When David had Bathsheba's husband killed so he could take her as his wife, this displeased God greatly.
Unlike when he faced Goliath fearlessly and filled with faith, David now had to confront the six-fingered, six-toe giant. David was no longer the mighty man of faith he had been as a young man. The consequences of his sin had worn him down. In 2 Samuel 21:15, it says that David grew faint, physically weak when he saw the enemy. But he would slay him anyway.
So, why was David so victorious after sinning against God?
It was the righteousness of God.
God knew David's heart.
God's righteousness refers to the forgiveness of sins.
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who you are. (Romans 3:22)
David knew that God saw him as holy and pure, even though his sin had caused death and destruction for many.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12)
Thank God we can count on the fact that God holds nothing against us if we ask for His forgiveness.
