WHEN GOD IS ANGRY.....(3)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY*
*WHEN GOD IS ANGRY.....(3)*
1Sam 15:34-35 *Then Samuel went to Ramah; and Saul went up to his house to Gibeah of Saul.*
*And Samuel came no more to see Saul until the day of his death: nevertheless Samuel mourned for Saul: and the Lord repented that he had made Saul king over Israel.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
When God is angry, every source of spiritual livelihood is disconnected.
When God was angry with Adam and Eve, they lost His presence in the garden of Eden, Gen 3.
They not only lost His presence, they lost moral decency , and they would also suffer physical death.
The same is common to all mankind. Though they may still be living, the spiritual presence of God is lost
The people of Israel were warned of the manner of king, Saul would be,1 Sam 8:11.
God would regret He made Saul king over Israel, Hosea 13:11.
God's anger against Saul not only removed God's presence from Saul but also Samuel's presence, 1 Sam 15:35.
God removed every source of Saul's spiritual livelihood.
His spiritual life support was removed.
There would be no other way Saul would communicate to Heaven or Heaven communicate with him, 1 Sam 28:6
We do not all see into the spiritual.
As a king, Saul could not see nor hear all from God, so God gave him Samuel, who could hear, and every word he spoke never fell to the ground, 1 Sam 3:19.
We must be careful in our walk with God. Usually, a loss of God brings every other thing to a standstill.
Nothing will work until God puts them in motion.
Anytime God is angry is a time He will not listen.
*Call to Word action.*
1 Sam 28:6 *And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Anytime God is angry, He may choose to be silent,1 Sam 14:37, 28:15.
Lord, please do not be angry with me, in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and be blessed as you come into His presence.
God bless you.
