  1. 1. Pure Heart Music Will be leading worshipWill be leading worship Sunday night, February 12 Sunday Morning at six oclock. 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 1 January 1, 2012
  2. 2. In 1 Samuel 10:1 Samuel anointed Saul to be king. He gave Saul 4 signs that would come to pass that day.God would turn Saul into another man. 2
  3. 3. It all came to pass as Samuel foretold! The Holy Ghost came upon Saul and he prophesied with the prophets. New Feelings, will, intellect 3
  4. 4. 13 And when he had made an end of prophesying,he came to the high place. 14 And Sauls uncle saidunto him and to his servant, Whither went ye? Andhe said, To seek the asses: and when we saw thatthey were nowhere, we came to Samuel. "Where have yall been?" Saul answered, "Hunting the donkeys." They were nowhere to be found, so we went to see Samuel. 4
  5. 5. Why could they not find Kishs donkeys? God was directing their steps to Samuel. Sometimes God moves us and guides us with failures. He allows us to lose a job, because He has something else for us to do.He allows a sickness or injury or other ailment, sothat we will have to slow down and see His Plan. 5
  6. 6. 15 And Sauls uncle said, Tell me, I pray thee, whatSamuel said unto you. 16 And Saul said unto hisuncle, He told us plainly that the asses were found.But of the matter of the kingdom, whereof Samuelspake, he told him not. It wasnt time for other people to know. Samuel would announce that Saul was king. Uncle might have ridiculed the whole idea; Saul might have been convinced to run. 6
  7. 7. 17 And Samuel called the people together unto theLord to Mizpeh; 18 And said unto the children ofIsrael, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, I broughtup Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out of thehand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of allkingdoms, and of them that oppressed you: God said, "I have loved you and cared for you for all of these hundreds of years." "I delivered you out of slavery." "I delivered you from oppression." 7
  8. 8. Samuel continues: 19 And ye have this day rejectedyour God, Who Himself saved you out of all youradversities and your tribulations; and ye have saidunto him, Nay, but set a king over us. Nowtherefore present yourselves before the Lord byyour tribes, and by your thousands.Samuel warned them once again of their rebelliousness in demanding a man to be king over them. They rejected God with this choice. Have you ever told God, "NO." 8
  9. 9. 20 And when Samuel had caused all the tribes ofIsrael to come near, the tribe of Benjamin wastaken. 21 When he had caused the tribe of Benjaminto come near by their families, the family of Matriwas taken, and Saul the son of Kish was taken: andwhen they sought him, he could not be found.Even though God had already told Samuel that Saul was to be anointed king, And he had in fact anointed him earlier, He went through the formalities. 9
  10. 10. 22 Therefore they enquiredof the Lord further, if theman should yet comethither. And the Lordanswered, Behold, he hathhid himself among the stuff. Have we chosen the right man? Where is he? He is hiding among the baggage. 10
  11. 11. 23 And they ran and fetchedhim thence: and when hestood among the people, hewas higher than any of thepeople from his shouldersand upward. He looked like a king!He was just what the people wanted. 11
  12. 12. 24 And Samuel said to allthe people, See ye himwhom the Lord hathchosen, that there is nonelike him among all thepeople? And all the peopleshouted, and said, Godsave the king. God is giving them what they want.He told them it wasnt His Will, but they dont care. 12
  13. 13. 25 Then Samuel told the people the manner of thekingdom, and wrote it in a book, and laid it upbefore the Lord. And Samuel sent all the peopleaway, every man to his house. Lets just read a small part of what Samuel read: 13
  14. 14. Deuteronomy 17 14 When thou art come unto theland which the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shaltpossess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, Iwill set a king over me, like as all the nations thatare about me; 15 Thou shalt in any wise set himking over thee, whom the Lord thy God shallchoose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou setking over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger overthee, which is not thy brother. 14
  15. 15. 16 Buthe shall not multiply horses to himself, norcause the people to return to Egypt, to the end thathe should multiply horses: forasmuch as the Lordhath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return nomore that way. 17 Neither shall he multiply wives tohimself, that his heart turn not away: neither shallhe greatly multiply to himself silver and gold. Deut 17 15
  16. 16. We know from the Scriptures that everything God said kings of Israel should not do -- they did.But it didnt start out that way. 16
  17. 17. 26 And Saul also went home to Gibeah; and therewent with him a band of men, whose hearts Godhad touched. God has already given Saul loyal followers. But he also already has enemies:27 But the children of Belial said, How shall thisman save us? And they despised him, and broughthim no presents. But he held his peace. "He is just a farmers son." 17
  18. 18. No matter what we may do, there will always be those who are for us, and those against us.God has those who will help us, and those who will fight against the work we would do. Dont be discouraged. When God is for us, noone can stand against us. 18
