The Rebellious Shall Be Burned with Fire

Second Samuel 23:1–7 are the last words that David wrote, and look at what he had to say at the very end of that section, “But the sons of rebellion shall all be as thorns thrust away, because they cannot be taken with hands. But the man who touches them must be armed with iron and the shaft of a spear, and they shall be utterly burned with fire in their place” (2 Samuel 23:6, 7).
David had to deal with many wicked people during his life, but he took comfort in the fact that though man could not deal with these people, the Lord could and would by burning them with fire.
Let all who oppose God and His people take heed to what David said.
