People of the Promised Land: Gad

Image result for prophet gad in bibleWe are introduced in BSF’s People of the Promised Land’s study to Gad the prophet in 1 Samuel 22:5 when he appears out of nowhere to advise David to flee from Saul into Judah. We meet him again in 2 Samuel 24 where the Lord gives Gad messages to speak to David in David’s last years. He is mentioned only twice more in the Bible: 2 Chronicles 29:25 where he assists in arranging the musical services of the Temple and how he wrote parts of 1 Chronicles (1 Chronicles 29:29).

Gad is a mysterious prophet whom God uses occasionally — much like many of us today.
