Ahithophel. The Lord Will Turn The Counsel Of Your Enemies To Foolishness, In The Name Of Jesus, Amen,

Do not believe what the enemy says or thinks concerning your life; believe only the word of God.

 

Luke 22

John 13

2 Samuel 15:31-34

2 Samuel 17:1-14, 23

 

 

2 Samuel 15:31– “And one told David, saying, Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom. And David said, O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.”

 

 

 

 

Ahithophel was one of King David’s highly esteemed counsellors because of his wisdom. When Absalom rebelled against his father, David, and plotted to overthrow him, Ahithophel  a trusted friend of David deserted him and supported Absalom. When David heard that Ahithophel was in support of Absalom, he sent one of his friends called Hushai to Absalom in order to counter the counsel of Ahithophel, just as David had prayed. If the counsel of Ahithophel was followed, Absalom would have slain his father and taken over the throne.

 

Ahithophel counselled Absalom and encouraged his rebellion against David but when his counsel was rejected and that of Hushai was preferred to his own, the Bible says he went home and hanged himself out of anger, jealousy and desperation for revenge (2 Samuel 17:23). The question is: why did Ahithophel give a wrong counsel to destroy his best friend, David? According to the Bible  Ahithophel was a grandfather to Bathsheba with whom David committed adultery (2 Samuel 23:34, 2 Samuel 15:12, 2 Samuel 11:3). Eliam was the son of Ahithophel, the Gilonite. From the foregoing Bible passages, we can deduce that Ahithophel did not forgive David.

 

Unforgiving attitude is a terrible sin and can terminate a glorious and colourful destiny. It can lead to conspiracy as we can see in the case of Ahithophel and his friend, David (2 Samuel 15:31). He even counselled Absalom to sleep with his father’s concubines in the open, as a way of revenge against what David did to Bathsheba his granddaughter. Unforgiving and vengeful spirit terminated the glorious ministry of Ahithophel. The Bible says his counsel was as if a man had inquired at the oracle of God (2 Samuel 16:23).

 

Unforgiving spirit can ruin the assignment God has given to you. It is an evil partner of jealousy  bitterness, hatred and envy. It will make you to judge others instead of allowing God to do the judgement Himself. Joseph’s brothers asked him to forgive them for what they did to him but he replied them: “Am I in the place of God?” (Genesis 50:19). That should be your attitude towards those who have wronged you. Allow God who is the right Judge to fight for you.

 

Ahithophel could not forgive David even when God had already forgiven him and this led to his destruction. It might be difficult to let go quickly but the faster you let go and let God, the better for you. God commands us to forgive and you must make conscious effort to do so. I pray that you will not end your glorious destiny like Ahithophel, in Jesus’ name. Forgive so that God will forgive you too.
