2 Samuel 2:1 Then it came about afterwards that David inquired of the Lord, saying, “Shall I go up to one of the cities of Judah?” And the Lord said to him, “Go up.” So David said, “Where shall I go up?” And He said, “To Hebron.”
Two weeks ago I began meditating on how David’s exchange with the Lord occurred? I began looking for an answer by reading the 75 Psalms David wrote. David is specifically noted as the author of 73 psalms in the titles of the Psalms 3-9; 11-41; 51-65; 68-70; 86; 101; 103; 108-110; 122; 124; 131; 133; and 138-145.
When I read the messianic Psalm 22 I thought David prophesied about events that would occur over 1,000 years later at the crucifixion of Jesus. David described the agony of the crucifixion in vv.14-18..” 16 …A band of evildoers has encompassed me; They pierced my hands and my feet. 18 They divide my garments among them, And for my clothing they cast lots.“
I realized this had to be a direct revelation from the Holy Spirit to David. The Spirit immediately led me to 1 Samuel 16:13 Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward. David was one of the Old Testament persons filled with the Spirit continuously just like all believers since Pentecost–from then until Jesus returns in the future. Then the Spirit led me to 2 Peter 1:21 for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. NASB
Then at about 1:00 AM 6/10/2018, the Spirit led me to this statement: “David is mentioned as the author of two psalms by writers in the New Testament. Psalm 2 is attributed to David in Acts 4:24-26..” 25 “You said through the Holy Spirit, by the mouth of our father David Your servant:… ” CSB
The Spirit led me to scripture that said the Holy Spirit communicated directly with David’s spirit. A I also believe David was obedient to the law and had Genesis-Joshua and Job available with him. B Just like David, the wisdom of God is directly available to me for decision making. C Hallelujah and praise Jesus for all His blessings.
