Cross-Reference: King David's polygamy, Blasphemy against the Holy Ghost, God gave David his wives


As the Bible itself reveals, anti-polygamists' suggestion that Spirit-filled David’s God-given polygamy is supposedly not real marriage can be seen as what Jesus called the "unforgivable sin" of "blasphemy against the Holy Ghost."

Many   supposed-to-be   Bible-believers   mistakenly   assert   that   the   Bible's   definition   of   marriage   excludes   polygamy.     A   clear   study   of   the   story   of   King   David   -   and   all   of   his   wives   -   proves   otherwise.     It   also   exposes   how   anti-polygamy   can   be   seen   as   that   which   Jesus   called   the   "unforgivable   sin." 
 
Most   Christian   Bible-students   understand   the   prophetic   Psalms   -   especially   those   which   foretold   of   Jesus   the   Messiah   -   as   being   written   "by   the   Spirit   of   God."     David   authored   those   Psalms. 
 
Indeed,   from   the   time   when   the   prophet   Samuel   anointed   the   boy   David,   until   the   time   King   David   breathed   his   last   breath,   the   Scripture   directly   says   that   the   Spirit   of   God   was   "on   David."     The   Scriptures   also   show   David   being   called   a   prophet   "filled   with   the   Spirit."     Even   in   Acts   1   and   2,   the   Spirit-filled   Apostle   Peter   said   that   "the   prophet"   David   spoke   by   the   Spirit   of   God. 
 
Spirit-filled   David   is   undisputedly   among   the   most   important   heroes   of   the   Bible.     He   was   also   very   much   a   polygamist.     Biography-wise,   the   Biblical   books   of   1st   and   2nd   Samuel   fully   detail   David’s   ever-growing   family   and   power. 
 
A   rather   young   David   married   his   first   wife,   Michal   -   the   princess   daughter   of   Saul,   king   of   the   land   of   Israel   -   after   accomplishing   a   God-assisted   victory   in   battle.     David's   continuing   successes   and   popularity   made   King   Saul   feel   threatened.     When   Saul   prepared   to   kill   him,   David’s   wife   helped   him   escape   -   forcing   David   to   leave   her   behind.     King   Saul   cruelly   "assigned"   Michal   to   another   man. 
 
Subsequently,   God   gave   David   400   men,   committed   to   following   his   command.     After   more   successes,   David   married   two   more   wives,   Abigail   and   Ahinoam. 
 
Polygamist   David   continued   to   grow   in   political   power.     God   have   him   200   more   men. 
 
Later,   God   gave   him   an   entire   town,   Ziklag;   David’s   political   power   kept   growing.     The   Amelekites   later   attacked   his   town   during   David's   absence.     They   also   kidnapped   David’s   two   wives.     Responding   to   David,   God   overtly   promised   that   David   would   "recover   all"   -   including   his   two   wives.     The   Lord   then   gave   David   victory,   recovering   all.     God   helped   him   rescue   Abigail   and   Ahinoam   back   home. 
 
While   David   was   battling   the   Amelekites,   King   Saul   was   somewhere   else   in   another   battle   -   and   he   was   killed.     David   asked   God   what   he   should   do   and   God   told   him   to   go   to   Hebron.     After   David   had   brought   his   two   wives   there,   God   gave   him   the   entire   tribe-land   of   Judah.     Polygamist   David   was   anointed   King   of   Judah.     Saul's   son,   Ishbosheth,   ruled   the   remaining   tribe-lands   of   Israel. 
 
Over   the   next   seven   and   half   years,   David   married   four   more   wives:   Maacah,   Haggith,   Abital,   and   Eglah.     David,   the   king   of   Judah,   had   six   wives   with   him   in   Hebron.     All   six   bore   him   a   son.     During   this   time,   David   also   still   wanted   his   first   wife   Michal   back.     So,   he   sent   messengers   to   Ishboseth,   requesting   her   return.     Thereby,   God   brought   Michal   back   to   David   too. 
 
Eventually,   Ishboseth   was   assassinated.     David   had   had   nothing   to   do   with   it.     God   then   gave   all   of   the   kingdom   of   Israel   to   the   38   year   old   polygamist   David   with   seven   known   wives   and   six   sons.     David   moved   and   subsequently   ruled   Israel   and   Judah   from   Jerusalem. 
 
One   night,   while   standing   "on   the   roof   of   the   king’s   house,"   David   had   seen   Bathsheba   bathing.     He   called   for   people   to   bring   her   to   him,   even   though   she   was   the   only   wife   of   one   of   David’s   warriors,   Uriah   the   Hittite. 
 
After   she   subsequently   became   pregnant   by   him,   David   gave   orders   for   Uriah   to   be   intentionally   placed   in   a   dangerous   battle   situation.     As   expected,   Uriah   was   killed. 
 
God   sent   the   prophet   Nathan   to   call   out   David's   sin.     Through   Nathan,   God   said   that   He   had   given   David   everything,   including   Israel   and   all   of   David’s   wives.   Indeed,   God   directly   said   that   He   Himself   had   given   David   all   his   wives.     In   2   Samuel   12:8,   the   Lord   directly   said   that   if   David   had   wanted   more   wives,   God   would   have   given   him   even   more. 
 
God   explained   David's   two   sins:   stealing   another   man's   wife   and   intentionally   having   the   man   killed.     David   quickly   repented   of   those   sins. 
 
But   his   polygamy   was   not   any   sin   at   all.     David   was   neither   required   to   repent   of   polygamy   nor   called   to   abandon   his   previous   seven   known   wives.     Although   Bathsheba’s   child   died,   she   still   became   David's   eighth   known-named   wife.     She   later   bore   another   son   for   David:   the   eventual   mega-polygamist   Solomon. 
 
The   Bible   further   reports   that   David   married   ten   more   wives,   too,   whose   names   were   not   recorded. 
 
The   Bible   is   clear.     David’s   polygamy   is   marriage. 
 
Except   for   those   sins   that   David   repented,   the   Holy   Spirit   was   always   "on   David."     According   to   1   Kings   15:5,   David   did   everything   right   according   to   God,   always   doing   as   God   "commanded   him   all   the   days   of   his   life,   save   only   in   the   matter   of   Uriah   the   Hittite." 
 
The   Spirit-filled   David   never   repented   -   nor   had   to   repent   -   of   polygamy.     Not   only   did   Jesus   never   call   David   an   unrepented   sinner,   but   in   Matthew   25,   the   sinless   Savior   metaphorically   described   Christ   Himself   as   the   polygamous   bridegroom   coming   to   marry   "five   wise   virgins."     Not   only   did   God   the   Father   say   that   He   had   given   David   all   his   wives   before   Bathsheba,   but   in   both   Jeremiah   3   and   Ezekiel   23,   the   Lord   even   prophetically   described   God   Himself   as   polygamously   married. 
 
The   Bible   declares   that   the   Spirit   of   God   was   "on   David"   -   as   God   gave   him   each   political   and   marital   increase.     The   prophetic   Psalms   were   written   "by   the   Spirit"   being   "on"   polygamist   David.      
 
To   deny   that   Spirit-filled   David’s   polygamy   is   marriage   is   to   defy   God   and   to   accuse   David   as   an   unrepented   "whoremongerer."     That   means   that   Revelation   21:8   condemns   David   -   and   even   the   Holy   Ghost   -   to   the   hellfires.      
 
In   Matthew   12:32   and   Mark   3:23,   Jesus   said   that   all   repented   sins   would   be   forgiven   -   except   one   sin   which   would   never   be   forgiven:   the   sin   of   "blasphemy   against   the   Holy   Ghost."     Christ   said   that   those   who   commit   that   one   unforgivable   sin   will   be   in   "danger   of   eternal   judgment." 
 
Denying   that   Spirit-filled   David's   polygamy   is   real   marriage   can   be   recognized   as   an   example   of   what   Jesus   called   the   "unforgivable   sin."     Anti-polygamy   blasphemes   the   Holy   Ghost.
