David’s First Annointing

David was first annointed about age 15 by Samuel.  “Now the Lord said to Samuel, “How long will you grieve over Saul, since I have rejected him from being king over Israel? Fill your horn with oil and go; I will send you to Jesse the Bethlehemite, for I have selected a king for Myself among his sons.”  1 Samuel 16:1

So he sent and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, with beautiful eyes and a handsome appearance. And the Lord said, “Arise, anoint him; for this is he.”  Then Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and the Spirit of the Lord came mightily upon David from that day forward.”  1 Samuel 16:12-13

If the period from David annointing to his second represents the time from baptism at the Jordan to his second coming, what does it tell us about that time?  Would Saul represent the Jews?  Would the Philistines represent evil and Satan in particular?  The first thing that happened after David’s annointing was his going in to Saul’s service as a musician to calm him when the evil spirit came.  The second major event was David’s fearless battle with Goliath.  Would that represent Jesus conquering Satan at the cross?
