Now Is The Season of Spring

1st Chronicles 20:1 - The following Spring, the time of year when kings go to war, Joab led the Israelite army in successful attacks against the towns and the villages of the Ammonites. They captured and then destroyed the city of Rabbah. But David stayed in Jerusalem.

March 20th is the beginning date of Spring for this year of 2022. In Ancient times, Spring time was the season that kings, emperors and potentates took the time to wage war against their enemies. Winter time was too cold and rainy. But Spring time was dry and the roads were able to allow armies to travel easily from place to place. Also, armies travel and fight well when they eat well. Spring time was a time of the wheat and barley harvests. But also crops of lentils, millet, cucumbers, melons, and beans. Animals were having their young at this time also. So therefore, there was plenty of food for hungry soldiers to eat.

However, By King David staying home from War at this time it afforded him an opportunity to fall into sin with Bathsheba, wife of Uriah the Soldier. King David leaned unto temptation that led to adultery and then to murder of an innocent man. Spring time is a time of new birth and new beginnings. But it is also a time to rededicate yourself to God and His principles. King David should have kept his duty as a king and went off to war with his army. (Jeremiah 49:2). He should have looked away from Bathsheba instead of at her. (Leviticus 15:19). He should have repented of his sin instead of trying to cover it up. (2 Samuel 12:9). It was always King David’s choice to turn from his sins but he did not. Although God eventually forgave king David of his sins, the consequences of what he did affected Israel, his family and he himself negatively for years to come. Spring Time Is The Time To Do Right! Amen.


The Bible indicates that Spring is a period or a season of time. It is a period of the year (Genesis1:14). It is a revealed time (1st Thessalonians 5:1). It is the right time for war (1st Chronicles 20:1). However, Spring time is also the right time and the right occasion to do what is right and what is glorifying in the presence of our Lord! How are you doing before our God’s Eyes?
