The Three

Now these are the chiefs of David's mighty men, who gave him strong support in his kingdom, together with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the Lord concerning Israel. This is an account of David's mighty men: Jashobeam, a Hachmonite, was chief of the three. He wielded his spear against 300 whom he killed at one time... (1Ch 11:10-11)

And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. (Mtt 17:1)

And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. (Mk 5:37)


There is a striking parallel between David's and Jesus' inner circle. Although they both had many followers there were three specific men of faith that they sought out to be with for specific times and tasks.

I can't help but think there is a kingdom principle here. Just as there is an importance to our large corporate gatherings, our small groups that meet in the home, and our own personal devotions, it would seem that there is also a time to draw to yourself two or three like-minded men of faith to achieve something focused and specific for the advance of God's kingdom.

Thanks for the tips...What exactly should I look for in a PSU? I was under the impression that it comes attached with the CPU case. Also I intend to use a DDR2 RAM- is there any specific company that you would recommend. My main help is from http://www.mysuperpc.com/ Could you please check it out and tell me what you think about it? I intend to go with his latest version using an AMD 64 BIT processor and a MSI/ASUS/GIGABYTE motherboard (whichever one is the best) a 80-120 GB Seagate hard disk. Also my operating system is going to be a Linux distribution- Ubuntu- I have got Windows on my laptop and would like to try a linux based one now. Also if I want to have a dual boot with Windows and linux...do I just install linux on one partition and Windows on the other? I know these are a lot of questions but I am grateful for whatever help you can provide.
Love and Grace,
