In It FOR Us?
I Samuel 13-19
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
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!
don't work - they just cause damage - on your children, etc.
They just ride
them out - probably just makes them angry and more rebellious.
Saul didn't even
heed Samuel's storm warnings!
There are some
who can make good of the blessings of a thunderstorm (We
get nitrogen rich soil from lightening. The U.S. has the largest concentration
of thunderstorms in the world, and henceforth it has the richest soil in
the world. - Thanks for the comments, Brother Adams)
Can't do our own
- God must provide Himself!
No smith - no
sword - 13:19-22
- just like today with all the publishers of Bibles - and then we see the
CBS News "Easter" Special on all the bibles today - presented by Nelson
Publisher.. Ya, like is the truth...
the kind of king you want - it won't work! 12:13-15
- the Spirit of God came and went.
- The LORD would even send an evil spirit!
witchcraft go hand in hand! - 15:23
as iniquity and idolatry! - 15:23
to see more and more of how much of Old Testament flavour is being taught
TO us today in Bible Believing Christianity.
Christians say they will have nothing to do with OT or Paul's Christianity
- their brand is from the Gospels - which is STILL Old Testament, they
just are not aware of that simple fact!
The Bible Believers
tend to hone in on Hebrews to Jude - which are books geared TO folks in
the future - the Tribulation.
There are plenty
of Pastoral and Parental Saul's these days. We ought to be very thankful
we don't have to deal with the same consequences that they did in the OT.
But don't forget, Christ took those consequences for us!
Ruling - caused hassles - wasn't from God, that is for sure!

all closely! However, Jonathan didn't know.

on the scene - power of music
- God asks Samuel to stop mourning over Saul and get busy with what he
needs to do!
Do not look on

Saul eyed David
- 18:9, 11, 12-16, 21, 25, 29; 19:10, 15

Evil spirit here was in the prophesying, not the music.
