... As a result the Holy Spirit was taken away from Saul. 17 Then the men of the city came out and fought with Joab. God had rejected Saul from the kingship, but nowhere were we told that the Holy Spirit was connected to the consequences of Saul’s sin. 16 Let our master now command your servants, who are before you, to seek out a man who is a skillful player on the harp. The only time I personally remember God just flat-out regretting something He had done is in Genesis. 24 The archers shot from the wall at your servants; and some of the king’s servants are dead, and your servant Uriah the Hittite is dead also.”, 25 Then David said to the messenger, “Thus you shall say to Joab: ‘Do not let this thing displease you, for the sword devours one as well as another. The Holy Spirit was with King Saul, yet later left him (1 Samuel 16:14). Agag even thought he’d avoided death because Saul refused to kill him — but Samuel the prophet finished him off to prove that God willed his death, and it would happen regardless of Saul’s obedience or disobedience. The Spirit played a prominent role in the long span of Old Testament prophecy. If Saul lost his salvation than why did Samuel say you and your sons will be with me tomorrow? Even after Samuel knew that Saul was evil, he still mourned for him. He commanded his servants to bring Bathsheba to him, then had sex with her. And it shall be that he will play it with his hand when the distressing spirit from God is upon you, and you shall be well.”, 17 So Saul said to his servants, “Provide me now a man who can play well, and bring him to me.”, 18 Then one of the servants answered and said, “Look, I have seen a son of Jesse the Bethlehemite, who is skillful in playing, a mighty man of valor, a man of war, prudent in speech, and a handsome person; and the Lord is with him.”, 19 Therefore Saul sent messengers to Jesse, and said, “Send me your son David, who is with the sheep.” 20 And Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, a skin of wine, and a young goat, and sent them by his son David to Saul. The Lord made His decision to strip Saul of the kingship, and that was it. 24 And Samuel said to all the people, “Do you see him whom the Lord has chosen, that there is no one like him among all the people?”, So all the people shouted and said, “Long live the king!” (1 Samuel 10:17-24). The Holy Spirit will not deny an apostate such an emphatic order. To assist in the conception of Nephilim giants or animal hybrids is absolutely outlawed. “Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in your sight.” David acknowledges the wrong he’s done against God, and calls it “evil.”. This leads to a person preaching a powerless gospel which is not Jesus Christ gospel. 16 For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it; 17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. Indeed, the Holy Spirit is there at the very beginning: " 1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. When he’s pressed about his sin, he blames “the people” twice, and then refers to God as Samuel’s God instead of his own. This is the main reason for their utter destruction by God’s commands. And someone said, “Is this not Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?” 4 Then David sent messengers, and took her; and she came to him, and he lay with her, for she was cleansed from her impurity; and she returned to her house. In such a person, who resists the Holy Spirit’s wooing no matter how strong such wooing is, the Holy Spirit makes a decision to leave that person’s life because, to use a familiar statement, “He doesn’t stay where He isn’t wanted.”, How Did King Saul Die? If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. We’ve seen this in our study of Isaiah 63. People rising up their hands during altar call is not a Biblically named sign following Jesus Christ servants. The Holy Spirit: is God: As Directing where the Gospel should be Preached. Strengthen your attack against the city, and overthrow it.’ So encourage him.” (2 Samuel 11:25). God decreed the end from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10), the chosen and the destined for unbelief (1 Peter 2:8-9), and explicitly demonstrated that some were chosen specifically to make a point to the elect and the world by their very destruction (Exodus 9:16; Zechariah 11:12-13; Acts 1:16). For the second attempt, David had failed once again. 12 So when Samuel rose early in the morning to meet Saul, it was told Samuel, saying, “Saul went to Carmel, and indeed, he set up a monument for himself; and he has gone on around, passed by, and gone down to Gilgal.” 13 Then Samuel went to Saul, and Saul said to him, “Blessed are you of the Lord! And yet, we see the Holy Spirit depart from his life. David didn’t get away with the adultery or the murder, despite all human appearances that he had escaped unscathed. Though we would never lose our salvation in our day and age of the new covenant because of Jesus’s finished work on the Cross,there is also something we should be wary about. Lastly, and this is worth saying: Saul was only rejected from being king because of his turning away from God, his apostasy. It seems odd that David would kill Uriah as a last resort if he wanted to cover up his one-night stand with Bathsheba because perhaps Uriah would have forgiven David and Bathsheba for the pregnancy, or raised the child as his own. This includes falling away; falling away from GRACE. (v. 4) Epistle (328) Hebrews 11:9-10, 17-23, 32-40 … And Saul disobeyed above all else, thus incurring divine wrath. He mourned Saul after God’s decision, and he mourned Saul after delivering the sad news. They only have a worded powerless gospel. If a person chooses herself/himself or chosen by the people to lead but not God choosing His servant, the power is hindered from being revealed to the congregation thus no signs and wonders are seen in a congregation. Then, when he went to pray to God about direction for the battle with the Philistines, he shows that he still didn’t understand what it meant for God to reject him as king. It’s easy to think that Saul willed his own death, but Samuel’s dire prophecy to Saul comes not because Saul chooses to die but because of the Lord God Himself: 13 So Saul died for his unfaithfulness which he had committed against the Lord, because he did not keep the word of the Lord, and also because he consulted a medium for guidance. What it proves to be for us is a psychological comfort that insulates us from the truth about our salvation and apostasy. And he came to him, and said to him: “There were two men in one city, one rich and the other poor. David had already decided that Uriah didn’t matter as much as David, that what he, David, wanted, was greater than what Uriah needed or deserved. The Names of Jesus: Who is Jesus According to the Scriptures? New King James Version Saul rebelled against God’s command to never go to a witch to speak to the dead, and he even sought out one of the witches that escaped from Saul’s own previous command to kill and expel all witches from the land. God made promises to David in 2 Sam.7:11b-16 and 1Chron. Not only did the Lord send Nathan to rebuke David; He also told David that his love child with Bathsheba would die as a result. The sad part is that the text tells us in 1 Samuel 10 that “God gave him another heart” (1 Samuel 10:9). These words remind us that, to be unfaithful to someone, there must be a covenant. Samuel did not visit Saul again, seeing that Samuel died before Saul did. Samson did not know when the Spirit of God had left him untill he found no more power. Major reasons are; The Holy Spirit is pure and righteous. And I will tell you what the Lord said to me last night.”, 17 So Samuel said, “When you were little in your own eyes, were you not head of the tribes of Israel? As you live, and as your soul lives, I will not do this thing.”. Shall I then go to my house to eat and drink, and to lie with my wife? What if the sinner believes he has committed this and no matter, how much pleas for forgiveness he sends to God, he feels like it returns back empty. I feel like this describes both my parents. First and foremost, the Spirit creates new life in believers (Titus 3:5), producing the same new birth Jesus spoke of in John 3:1–8. Langenscheidt's Hebrew-English Dictionary to the Old Testament (p. 324) defines rephaim as referring to the "departed spirits, shades." And yet, Samuel still mourned for him because of what Saul lost. For you showed kindness to all the children of Israel when they came up out of Egypt.” So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. The big problem is if you do not see that you are sinning and the Holy Spirit has left you even after Him telling you to repent. This is why he goes to pray about the battle against the Philistines. And blameless when You judge. To fix this atrocity, God called for complete destruction, except for His own chosen survivors, Noah and his family, They are chosen because Noah alone is a godly man, and he has no genetic corruption from angels in his DNA/ lineage. But any man who murders a woman’s husband to be with her isn’t necessarily in love but in today’s view, a psychopath. What Samuel tells Saul is that God desires obedience above all else. There are more clues in 1 Samuel 15 of Saul’s apostasy, such as the one below: 12 So when Samuel rose early in the morning to meet Saul, it was told Samuel, saying, “Saul went to Carmel, and indeed, he set up a monument for himself; and he has gone on around, passed by, and gone down to Gilgal.” (1 Samuel 15:12). It is no different than the Israelites bowing before the golden calf, or a statue made of stone or wood. Though he’d lost a loyal soldier, a Gentile who wanted to defend the ark, Israel, and Judah, one who was loyal to him and would have been a lifetime loyalist, David had very little reaction to news of his death. When the Holy Spirit departs, the kingdom of Heaven has departed from a person or a congregation and the evil spirit takes over. 6 Then Saul said to the Kenites, “Go, depart, get down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them. (Psalm 51:1-19). Samuel doesn’t call the Lord his God, but rather, “your” God, the word “your” implying that “God may be your God, but he isn’t mine.” When we read that God tells Samuel that “he has turned back from following Me,” God is saying, in effect, that Saul has given up God. The Lord specifically refers to Joshua as “a man in whom is the Spirit” (Numbers 27:18). 8 For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour. David refused to drink it instead he poured it as offering to the Lord his heart cannot accept the sacrifice the men has done to fetch the water for him.So he choose to offer it to the Lord . See why the Holy Spirit departs. When the Holy Spirit is in a person, the fruits of the Holy Spirit are manifested. God had made His decision; there wouldn’t be a renegotiation. “Purge” (v.7), “wash me,” (v.7) are references to removing his sin. To be a Christian is to have the Holy Spirit living in you: “You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. As Jesus was without sin so is the Holy Spirit. We begin November with the celebration of the Solemnity of All Saints, a holy day of obligation honoring all those faithful souls in heaven. When someone says that the Holy Spirit departed from Saul because he lost the kingship, that simply isn’t true; rather, by apostatizing in his walk with the Lord, Saul walked away from the Holy Spirit. Period. Many preaching the gospel today lack power because the Holy Spirit has not come upon them or He has departed from them. The kingdom of God is not seen in a person. Let’s take a look at David’s sin and his response. It’s because Saul turned back from following God that the Lord sent Samuel to tell Saul that God rejected him from being king. At the end of 2 Samuel 11, we see an injustice done, adultery, followed by another injustice, the death of a king-loyal soldier, and we think there’s no justice to be found in the world. That little voice, however, may well have been the Holy Spirit trying to get your attention. And at evening he went out to lie on his bed with the servants of his lord, but he did not go down to his house. But there’s one sentence that suggests otherwise: “But the thing that David had done displeased the Lord” (2 Samuel 11:27b). The Spirit confirms to us that this new birth is real and that we truly belong to God (Romans 8:15–17). Yahweh know all who belong to him. 8 And David said to Uriah, “Go down to your house and wash your feet.” So Uriah departed from the king’s house, and a gift of food from the king followed him. But everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed. Saul used his power to choose to disobey the Lord willingly. The purpose of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit is many-faceted. We don’t know how Uriah would have responded had he known the truth, but David didn’t seem to care about Uriah’s knowledge of the events. When a person or a congregation is in sin, the Holy Spirit departs; He does not sin nor live in sin with the person. He died because he was unfaithful to the Lord and “also because he consulted a medium for guidance.” Saul dies because of both actions. There are many who would never have guessed the Lord would eliminate someone from the kingship, but it was His sovereign right to give it and take it from ungodly Saul. But David remained at Jerusalem. 15 And Saul’s servants said to him, “Surely, a distressing spirit from God is troubling you. The following day we observe the Commemoration of All Souls. In it, we read the soul of a man who has been confronted by Nathan the prophet with the realization that he, David, has sinned before God. First, there were many who had the Spirit of the Lord come upon them that weren’t kings. Stubbornness “is as iniquity and idolatry.” To be stubborn is no different than sin (iniquity) and idolatry. And he loved him greatly, and he became his armorbearer. When he couldn’t get Uriah to do what he wanted, he had him killed and then pretended as if Uriah’s death was a normal casualty of war: 25 Then David said to the messenger, “Thus you shall say to Joab: ‘Do not let this thing displease you, for the sword devours one as well as another.
