Importance Of Revelation – Ahithophel vs Hushai

David had a charismatic son called Absalom. He was also a very ambitious prince. He wanted to be king. He engineered a successful revolt. David and his loyalists had to flee the capital – Jerusalem.

The wisest man in David’s council was Ahithophel. Shrewdly, he betrayed his master and followed the rising sun.

But God would not let the sun set on His anointed. He planted a man called Hushai to counter the counsel of Ahithophel to Absalom.

The coup failed. Ahithophel’s wise counsel was rejected to his ruin.

Ahithophel did not realize that it was better to foolish for the right cause, than wise in the wrong course. He paid the supreme price.
