The Hateful Spirit Of King Saul

Every time I think of rebellion, stubbornness, witchcraft, and manipulation I think about how King Saul died.  I also think about why King Saul was taken from this earth because of his stubborn ways.

Most people would be happier if they took heed to the warnings that King Saul ignored. 

These are some words I will use to describe things I read about King Saul:

  1. Proud & Haughty   [he believed his ways were better than God’s ways]
  2. Demanding   [he chose to do things his way instead of doing things God’s way]
  3. Ignorant & Irreverent to God   [he showed no true reverence for God]
  4. Murderous   [he tried to kill the man he was most jealous of]
  5. Envious   [he wanted people to adore him and to think highly of him]
  6. Greedy   [he wanted the things he was not supposed to have]
  7. Unfaithful   [he did not follow instructions]
  8. Manipulating Liar   [when he was confronted for doing wrong he told lies]
  9. Stubborn   [he demanded his own way]
  10. Foolish   [even when he was warned he did not heed warnings sent his way]

King Saul was chosen by God yet King Saul turned away from doing good things.  King Saul let his own will become more important than the will of God.  The unholy desires Saul followed led him to destruction.

Some people today that say they follow God act too much or even a bit like King Saul.  They can walk proudly proclaiming that they are God’s chosen people and they start demanding their own way instead of doing things God’s way.  They can become proud and haughty.  They can also let jealousy and greed enter into their lives. 

We may not be able to change other people but we can repent of our own sins.  We can ask God to deliver us of doing anything that displeases him.  We can examine ourselves and ask God to wash us clean so we are freed from the evil desires within.

King Saul made wrong choices and he suffered and died because of his wrong choices.  

Don’t make the mistakes King Saul made. 

Turn from evil and do good.  Do things God’s way instead of your own way. 

 

What You Have Sown You Will Most Certainly Reap

Some people may take this as a warning and repent.  Some people have already decided that they do not want to show the Lord that they revere God.

Read Isaiah 55, Galatians 6, & Matthew 7

One verse from each Chapter will be listed here today.  The following Scriptures come from the King James Version of the Bible because it is a translation that is public domain.

Isaiah 55:11, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

Matthew 7:2, “For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.”

I was awake near 3:30 AM on 3/30/2015.  I kept hearing words from Isaiah 55 go through my mind.  At first I thought I was being allowed to remember those words because I had been reviewing words from Isaiah 55 for a week or so.  I decided to write down the thoughts that were going through my mind.

The Lord said, “So shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”

Did you think you’d only receive the good when you reap what you’ve sown?  Didn’t you know that God intended for you to sow seeds of kindness rather than spread words of evil?  Because you neglected to follow the Holy path God wanted you to walk on you will reap destruction.

Recall that God’s Word says, “So shall my word be that goeth forth from my mouth.  My Word will not return to me empty.”   You have sown some good seeds and you have sown some bad seeds.  The good seeds were planted when you cast money in the pot but you were thinking,  “Oh good, God will give me back more than I gave to Him.”  The seed sown was good seed but you should recall that your motive for giving is clearly shown. 

You also planted seeds of unrighteousness when you maliciously attacked people who are weaker than you.

Because you neglected to plant seeds of righteousness your time of harvest will surprise you.  He who sows to please himself will reap destruction.  It is a promise I intend to keep for I am the promise keeper.

I also recall the way you’ve intentionally misjudged others.  You’ve attacked my people who are following after me.  You sought to destroy them for your own gain.  You maligned them and lied about them.  You manipulated them and caused a great deal of harm.

Because you have done that which is evil in the sight of the Lord you will be judged.

I will use the same measuring device you used.  This is my promise and it shall come to pass.

[The reader may want to review all the words written in Galatians 6 that pertain to reaping and sowing.  God’s Word does promise us that we shall reap what we have sown and we are supposed to do good things.  It is written that those who sow to their own  flesh will reap destruction.]
