Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

April 10 - Evening

"Then Joab went to Geshur and brought Absalom
back to Jerusalem. But the king said,

'He must go to his own house;
he must not see my face.'

So Absalom went to his own house and
did not see the face of the king.

In all Israel there was not a man so highly praised
for his handsome appearance as Absalom.
From the top of his head to the sole of his foot
there was no blemish in him."

- Second Samuel 14:23-25

Absalom Returns from Geshur    

As part of an international treaty between Israel and Geshur, David had married Maacah, the daughter of Talmai, the King of Geshur. (2 Samuel 13:37)

Geshur was a small kingdom northeast and east of the Sea of Galilee (Deut.3:14; Josh. 12:5; 13:11-13) that maintained its own identity and national independence during the days of Joshua and the Judges right up until the days of David. The capital of the nation was the city called by the same name, Geshur. Later in Israel’s history Geshur sided with the Arameans and took the territory of Havvoth Jair from Israel (1 Chron. 2:23) Today Et-Tell, the archaeological site of Old Testament Geshur, is 1.5 miles north of the Sea of Galilee. Et-Tell (Geshur) is also the location of the New Testament city so well-known from the Gospels as Bethsaida, the home of Peter, Andrew and Philip (John 1:44; 12:21)

The east gate leading into the Old Testament city of Geshur, which was the capital of the kingdom of Geshur, can be seen today. Notice the basalt pavement stones. This is a four chamber gate with two chambers on each side where business and governmental issues were dealt with. One of the chambers can be seen inside the gate on the left side.

The entrance to the gate is flanked by two standing stones - one on the left and one on the right.

The right side of the gate has the high place of worship with three steps leading up to the stela and basin. The high place of worship on the right side of the entrance to the east gate into the city of Geshur. The standing stela stone (basalt) is engraved with a bull-headed image wearing a sword and supported by a tripod.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“There are families to be rescued 
- children to be protected
– babies to be saved
– teens to be comforted
– widows to be supported
– single parents to be encouraged
– marriages to be preserved
– and governmental activities to be monitored.
It’s a gigantic task, but together we can
make a difference.”

– James Dobson

Something to Ponder??

Jewish text between 100 BC- 100 AD, including the Dead Sea scrolls, spoke of God revealing mysteries and information that were previously unavailable to humans. In Romans 16:25-26 Paul says that this mystery has already been revealed and is taught in the Scriptures as the ingathering of the Gentiles. This is spoken of in Paul’s writings in Romans 11:25, and also, 10:19; 11:11; and Ephesians 2:14-19 and supported in the Old Testament in
Isaiah 19:18-5; 56:3-8; Zechariah 2:11.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Metaschematizo (Gr) – fashion (Eng) – metaschematizo is Greek comes from meta, meaning “after” and schema, meaning “a figure” or “to fashion.” Meta implies change, so metaschematizo literally means “to change in fashion” and “to change in appearance.”
is found in Phil. 3:21; 2 Cor. 11:13, 14, 15; 1 Cor. 4:6.


Geologist estimate that a massive flood took place around 4500 BC 200 miles north of Mount Ararat. At this time the Black Sea was a freshwater lake, but it became part of the salt seas when the ocean waters entered through the Bosporus Strait.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I take advantage of the fact that I can approach God for strength, guidance, and 
to make requests and intercessions because of the high-priestly ministry of Jesus?
I will approach God through Jesus Christ for worship and to pray for myself and others.
  "The wise in heart
accept commands,
    but a chattering fool
comes to ruin."

- Proverbs 10:8
