What's In It FOR Us?
Part X
March 25, 2007
I Samuel 1-4

Continuing our "Old Testament" highlights as to what is in those books FOR us, even though there is nothing in those books TO us!  There are many Paulish churches that tend to ignore the OT.  That is a shame.  Not only are they missing the completeness of the Scriptures, it is NOT God's design at all. II Timothy 2:16 says that ALL scripture.. that includes all 66 Books of the King James Bible.  While they are not all TO us, they certainly are all FOR us!

OT Ensamples for us!
Paul even tells us to look to those OT Scriptures for our ensample!  I Corinthians 10:11 - Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.

I will say it again, "We just continue to see more and more OT applications falsely taught today during the time of Paul's gospel and the dispensation of grace!

I Samuel 1-4

Main Characters:
(let's not read books or movies, etc. about these folks - the KJB all the information that is truthfully available.  Anything else is just 'speculating' with no proof other than the "could have been's" and all the emotional so-called inspirational stuff)

Good reading for:
Hannah Ensample but not Example! OT Warriorettes of Today
These kinds of ladies today are enemies to grace. These are the OT Warriorettes.  These are the ladies in the churches that run the ship, claim to be the prayer warriors, talk and sound so spiritual, yet their own glaring disobedience in their home and in the church is seen by everyone but themselves.

They may make the claim to be honourable and devout but they stood against Paul in Acts 13:50 and still do today - even if yet behind their honourable and devout smokescreen!  But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.

We can't forget the devil will...

So ladies, if you "feel" any of those things going on in your life, remember what Paul said in Titus 24,5 - ...to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

Honourable and devout fake!
If you don't, then you are an honourable and devout fake - and believe me, everyone knows it but you - and all that spiritual wonder you portray will burn at your judgment seat!

OT Lady Heroines?
...or do you even know any of the women's names involved with Paul's ministry?
...very little is known about these ladies - but maybe that is exactly the point!  It would certainly fit with Paul's guidance for ladies to serve God in a manner that would actually please God, not themselves or the world, etc.
