In 2 Samuel 5 is the story of David bringing the Ark of the Covenant into the City of David, or Jerusalem.
The history of the ark has it created in the wilderness, taken into Canaan by Joshua and then used to defeat enemies after the Israelites were there. Once the dust cleared, it was kept in Bethel and then Shiloh, both holy places. The ark was cared for by Eli’s two sons, who were not the most holy of people in Israel. Those two rascals decided to use the ark without Yahweh’s permission and they ended up dead in a battle that went terribly wrong; and, daddy Eli dropped dead when he heard the news of his sons being dead. With that loss in battle, the Philistines took possession of the ark, which was not a good thing for them. After seveal months of plagues and deaths, the Philistines sent a delegation to the Israelites, telling them, “Meet us and take this damn ark back.” Samuel had just been made judge of Israel, so he sent men to take the ark back; and, they moved it to Kirjath-jearim [a.k.a. Baal-Judah]. There is sat, only moved once and then right back, for roughly fifty years. After David had been king over Israel and Judah and his renovations of his city completed, he was told by Yahweh, “Now that you possess Jerusalem, you need to unite My ark with My lover.”
This is the unseen love story of this that is told in 2 Samuel 5. Yahweh is the masculine essence of the Spiritual, who surrounds the marriage vows between Him and the Israelites (The Commandments state the terms of marriage). Jerusalem is the feminine essence of the earth, as most sacred earth, thus like a royal princess. David acted as the High Priest of Israel and Judah, who brought the two together in Holy Matrimony. Thus, the story tells of music, dancing, and lots of free food offered to all the wedding banquet attendees.
When one is able to see this grand view of this story, it is then possible to see the macrocosm of marriage be reduced to the microsm of the marriage that was David [the king] and Michael [the queen]. The back-story of that marriage says Saul offered David an opportuinity to marry into his royal family by marrying his daughter Michal. After David met the challenge Saul presented him, so he could rightfully become an heir to the throne through marriage, Saul tried to kill David, forcing David to escape. Michal helped David at first, because she was sweet on the young hero. However, after David stayed on the lam for so long, Saul gave Michal away to a second husband, whom she married. While that makes Saul out to be the piece of dirt he had become, he would have been justified in doing that if David and Michal never consummated their marriage. After Saul killed himself and his eldest son Ish-Bosheth became king, David made a truce with him, where one term was the return of Michael to him. Ishy agreed, which did not make the second hubby happy; but he could not stop it. So, in this story Michal has been renewed as the wife of David, elevated to the Queen of Israel [as his wife], and she has the gall to look down on David as he dances into his city before the Ark of the Covenant.
Michal is then entered into this story of divine love and marriage, where heaven and earth would be joined under the tent [look up a Jewish chuppah], as the microcosm of all Israel. By taking Jerusalem from the Jebusites, David had removed the protector of the land [Canaan as the Promised Land for the children of Israel], making himself that protector. David then became the last judge of Israel, as no more would be sent to bail them out after they became wayward. David had been anointed by the Spirit of Yahweh and thus his soul had been forever saved. He came as the model for all the Israelites to follow. The king showed them to be like me; do not worship me. Michal looked down on that arrival of ‘every man and woman for himself or herself’ model with contempt in her soul. She became the reflection of ALL who would say to Yahweh, “Not me! I am already high and mighty. I don’t need God like some common sinner does.”
After the wedding banquet was over and all the Israelites went home, Michal laid into David about how foolish he was. She told him he was not of royal blood, like she was [she was trailer trash from Saul’s loins, just raised like a Jewish princess]. She told David she did not love him, which was a reflection of someone telling Yahweh, “I do not love you!” She would never have any royal babies with David. She was made barren because of the opinions she expressed.
This makes Michal the poster child for all Christians, Jews, Muslims and anything else that thinks he, she, or it has an opinion that anyone else needs to know. Opinions are like assholes because everybody has one, none of which are any better than the others. The only opinion that matters in this story told in 2 Samuel 5 is that held by Yahweh. Yahweh’s opinion was expressed by His servant David, which was for him to tell the world: “Your soul either marries Yahweh or your soul becomes barren.” It does not matter who you know or who you blow, if you reject Yahweh as your Husband [that means all souls of human beings are feminine, thus brides-to-be] you will be fruitless, like a dead branch that gets pruned and tossed in the fire.
The question is then, “Are you like Michal?”
You know you are. The world is going to hell in a handbasket because you stand in your highrise penthouse of worldly luxury and think you are somebody, holding contempt in your heart and soul for anyone who would get excited about a soul marrying Yahweh. Your thinking, “That religion shit is for losers. I hate losers!” is why the world is always just one heartbeat away from the reset button being pressed. Open your eyes and look around. You hate everyone but yourself (sometimes you hate yourself too, but not often).
Of course, the moral of this story of Israel is David would indeed be the last judge. Very few Israelites would ever marry their souls to Yahweh and become His prophets. Most would be the lambs led to slaughter by their human keepers. The land would forever be lost and the kings slaughtered, with the people scattered and put into captivity. They would become the slaves of other lowlife kings, never the servants of the true King. Once freed they would return to thinking just like Michal all over agin.
Then Yahweh sent His Son Jesus to be like David and model how saved souls must be. That worked for about four hundred years, until the Satanist of Rome took over that which was holy and turned it into a new form of perverse slavery. Where we stand now is on the tattered remnants of the most holy robe of true Christianity, thinking we have earned some ill-gotten right to all be kings and queens of the earth.
I hear the record skipping. Might want to lift the needle and play the same song and dance all over again.
