Another Trouble for David

Absalom, who had killed one of his brothers, later sought the kingdom of his father David, “Then Absalom sent spies throughout all the tribes of Israel, saying, ‘As soon as you hear the sound of the trumpet, then you shall say, “Absalom reigns in Hebron!”‘” (2 Samuel 15:10).
Two hundred men joined him initially, although they truly did not know what they were doing, and David’s trusted counselor joined the conspiracy, which kept growing in strength (2 Samuel 15:11, 12).
What this meant was that Absalom wanted David dead, but in doing so, Absalom also fought against God.
We need to be careful before aligning ourselves with a rebellion that seeks to go against a long established reign.
