Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
King David's final years were turbulent as God brought a famine as a result of Saul's mistreatment of the Gibeonites. Instead of going to the Lord, David sought out the Gibeonite leadership, who demanded that seven descendants of Saul be delivered unto them for execution.
Then the Philistines attacked and King David led his men into battle but was almost killed. He retired from war and got into trouble when he decided to count his soldiers despite God's explicit instructions not to do so. This led to a second judgment in which 70,000 men died because of David's error.
Adonijah was the crown prince and mimicked his older brother, Absalom, when he failed to secure the throne without his father's blessing. The events surrounding Solomon's coronation were melodramatic as David spoke to Solomon about taking vengeance on those with whom he had grievances.
In examining King David's life, it drives home the truth that man is saved by grace, not by works, and despite the multitude of sins, it was the work of Jesus on the cross that made it possible for God to use David, regardless of his personal condition.
