Absalom’s Rebellion

Overview

A beautiful family’s sweet relationship turns sour! A compassionate brother seeks revenge against his half-brother for committing a crime against their sister Tamar. Absalom rebelled against their father King David for not doing anything about the crime. Amnon’s crime was the rape of his blood relative half-sister; Tamar. This story starts out with family love and works it’s way towards displaying genuinely kind gestures between the siblings. However, later on, this story takes a dive for the worst and displays immoral acts of deceit, lies, and the rape of Tamar. Ultimately, these acts are what resulted in Absalom’s  rebellion against his father; a parent who had the power to do something!

One thing young girls appreciate is the love and the protection of their fathers. This is an act that appears to not have happened in this Bible story.  Tamar went to her father seeking justice. Her brother; Absalom also went to their father seeking justice on her behalf. However, King David ignored the crime. As I read this story, I wondered why a man of such stature ignored the cries and pleas of his family members.   However, I had to do more research about the culture of a prominent King, the compassion of a protective brother, the vulnerability of a teen sister and the conniving acts of a sexually desperate relative to gain a better understanding of the whole story.

I'm humbled and very grateful 🙏🏾🤗that I'm actively teaching Holy Bible lessons online Thursdays at 10:33 am CST on Zoom. In addition, I'm happy to be leading Inspirational Fellowship services to seniors in an assisted living community in Fort Wayne, IN.

Furthermore, I've spent the past 30 years learning and doing ministry across the United States, in the United Kingdom and in the West Indies under a variety of collaborating pastoral leaders.

In brief, my education includes a Graduate Certificate in Instructional Curriculum Technology '2009 UofMemphis,... and a Master's of Religious Education '2011 LUSeminary.

In testimonial summary, my life's Discipleship's  journey started when I was a child and it has been a great learning experience that includes homelessness, joblessness and poverty, and a couple attempts on my life, but through it all, The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob has continuously sustained me and covered me! I'm a Victorious  Woman of God! through His Son Jesus Christ's sanctification and the leading of the Holy Spirit 🤗🦋

My beliefs are inspired by all of the Word of God, particularly St. John 4:21-29, Psalm 27, Romans 10:9-10, 1 Corinthians 12 and Acts 2:1-43. My interests are to teach The Holy Gospel with inspiration to the hearts of many as they journey through life's challenges.  I pray my life continues to be an example that encourages others to increase their faith and make a commitment to a daily walk with Jesus Christ Amen.
