6 – The Flesh of Man
1 – Unity

2 Samuel 6:1 (NKJV):  Again, David gathered together all the chosen men of Israel, thirty thousand.


The name David, while common in our culture, only belongs to one man in the Bible. That’s somewhat of an oddity when you consider there are five Mary names in the New Testament and seven Jeremiah names throughout the Scripture.

David desired to “…dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” (Psalm 23:6). The man whose name means “beloved” has the number one stamped on him. The word “eternity” is found only once in Scripture. (Isaiah 57:15). No doubt the unity our Lord longs for is not temporary but one that lasts forever.

The point of understanding numbers in Scripture is to avoid going off into a fruitless study of math. The purpose is to hear God’s voice. He loves to preach unity through the number one.

John 15:4 (KJV) Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.

John 16:27 (KJV) For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.

Declaration:  I am one with Jesus. I hear His voice. My unity with the Father will last an eternity.
