TOPIC: Ahithophel Could Not Escape These Two Bullets!
BASIC SCRIPTURE: Genesis 11:7-9; 2 Samuel 15
7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.
8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

2 Samuel 15:12 says: “And Absalom sent for Ahithophel the Gilonite, David’s counsellor, from his city, even from Giloh, while he offered sacrifices. And the conspiracy was strong; for the people increased continually with Absalom.” 2 Sam 15:31: “And one told David, saying, ‘Ahithophel is among the conspirators with Absalom.’ And David said, ‘O LORD, I pray thee, turn the counsel of Ahithophel into foolishness.”
Note that THE CONSPIRACY AGAINST DAVID WAS STRONG, yet only 12 words stopped it! Yes! When David prayed that simple prayer of 12 words, he was saying TWO THINGS IN ONE; he was saying: LORD, send the arrow of confusion to Ahithophel and SCATTER his relation with ABSALOM. And both were answered swiftly! NO ENEMY CAN RESIST THE TWIN ARROWS of “CONFUSE and SCATTER!” Use them every day!
See how the Bible described Ahithophel in 2 Samuel 16:23 – “And the counsel of Ahithophel, which he counselled in those days, was as if a man had enquired at the oracle of God: so was all the counsel of Ahithophel both with David and with Absalom.” He was called THE ORACLE; the TWIN ARROWS of “CONFUSE AND SCATTER” disgraced him! See how he ended up in 2 Samuel 17:14: “And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, ‘The counsel of Hushai the Archite is better than the counsel of Ahithophel.
For the LORD had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the LORD might bring evil upon Absalom.”
2 Samuel 17:23 concluded the shame of Ahithophel: “And when Ahithophel saw that his counsel was not followed, he saddled his ass, and arose, and gat him home to his house, to his city, and put his household in order, and hanged himself, and died, and was buried in the sepulchre of his father.” Whether they like it or not, your haters will hang! Their plans will hang! Their conspiracy will hang! And your GLORY SHALL BE RESTORED! Oh, lift up your hands and praise the LORD NOW!
