The people readily This first sign would occur when Saul save them. Bible Lesson: The Birth and Calling of Samuel (1 Samuel 1-3) These past few weeks of studying God’s Word we are reminded of the sinfulness of all people. He again went to Eli, the chief priest, to offer his help. Even the number of men Saul meets reminds us that this is the dividing line among all men (2 is the number of division), So Saul will be the exception to prove the rule, Journeying farther, Saul will come to the oak of Tabor where he will meet three men going to worship at Bethel, They carry items for the sacrifice including goats, bread and wine, When they encounter Saul, they will give him two loaves of the bread unsolicited, These foods were reserved for the sacrifice to the Lord, but they will be given into Saul’s hand, Obviously, this indicates a blessing for Saul in that the people will support his needs, But the fact that this provision was intended for the Lord before being redirected to Saul is a dark cloud over his reign, Saul will turn the opportunity to guard the inheritance of the people into a chance to enrich himself, He will abuse his power and seek to glorify himself, Finally, Bethel is the place where Jacob saw the ladder coming down from Heaven, In that moment, Jacob made a “deal” with the Lord, Jacob made his willingness to obey and follow the Lord conditional on the Lord’s willingness to care for him, But the Lord’s faithfulness to Jacob had nothing to do with Jacob’s faithfulness, It was because of a promise the Lord made to Abraham, Isaac and then Jacob, Saul’s second sign indicates that while Saul will ultimately be unfaithful, nevertheless the Lord will remain faithful, Saul’s life is a story of shipwrecked faith, But Saul is nevertheless a man saved by faith, Saul eventually travels a little further to the southwest to Gibeon, the hill of God, There he is met by a group of prophets prophesying and Saul will join them, The Spirit of the Lord will come upon Saul and he will also prophesy, The simple message confirms to Saul he will receive the anointing of the Spirit, which is the ultimate confirmation of his selection as king, And by that Spirit he is equipped for every good work in serving the Lord, But as with the first two signs, the location foreshadows the sorry end to Saul’s reign, After the Israelites entered the land under Joshua, the people living in the city tricked Israel into forming a covenant with them, The covenant prevented Joshua and subsequent generations from conquering the city, And it required that Joshua defend the city, Joshua still enslaved the people to serve Israel, Later Joshua designated Gibeon a Levite city, At some point in Saul’s reign he decided to break the covenant and  conquer the city, attempting to put all in the city to death, So this town becomes a legacy to Saul’s greedy ambitions, Ultimately, the Gibeonites get to name their retribution for Saul’s violation of the covenant, They call for seven of Saul’s descendants to be executed as retribution, David agrees, and then later buries the bodies of the seven plus the bones of Saul in Benjamin, So Saul receives the Spirit of the Lord in the beginning, but in the end he dies without the Spirit, The tribe of Benjamin has its time as king, Once again, Saul is the exception that proves the rule that ‘not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the LORD, Samuel tells Saul that as he encounters these moments, particularly the final sign, do what the occasion requires, After these experiences, Samuel tells Saul he will meet him in Gilgal and they will offer sacrifices, And all that Samuel prophesied took place, But as Saul sets out on this journey, an important moment takes place near the beginning, We’re told that the Lord “changed” Saul’s heart, The wording here leaves little doubt concerning what happened, To “change” a heart means the Lord takes a person’s spiritual natural and brings it to life. prophets met him; and the spirit of God came upon him, and he When Saul came out, it was apparent that God had chosen this man as Now therefore present yourselves again, we can not have fellowship with God and be used by God in His father feared that evil had befallen Saul and his SAMUEL ANOINTS SAUL, AND CONFIRMS HIM BY THE PREDICTION OF THREE SIGNS.

But does the Lord’s inheritance come by natural means? their power  .[i]. Here is a free lesson on Labels, based on 1 Samuel 16:7. 10. CHAPTER 10 1 Samuel 10:1-27. the first king of Israel. 1 Sam 10:16 And Saul said unto his uncle, He told us plainly that the asses were found. bread, and the last would be carrying a bottle of wine. ?”, The question is ironic, because Saul will turn out to be the last person you might consider to be a true prophet, So the fact that some mistook him for a prophet later becomes ironic humor, After this moment, Saul proceeds to the high place to await Samuel as instructed, and a conversation begins, Naturally, Saul’s uncle asks what happened to him while he was away, Instead, he decides to only mention the donkeys, We could see this as an example of Saul’s humility, Or we could see this as an example of his duplicity, Now the time comes for the king to be revealed to the people, Samuel gives the people the reminder of why they are receiving a king, He reminds them that the Lord has been faithful to bring them out of Egypt and into the land by His own hand, Nevertheless, the people rejected the Lord’s authority over them, Nothing good can come from a decision forged in a desire to end the Lord’s rule over His people, So we know that whatever comes next will necessarily be a problem, And so Samuel says to the people, with an ominous tone, that it’s time to stand before Lord and get what they asked for, At this point, we might expect that Samuel would just point to Saul and announce he was the king, But that’s not how the selection took place, First, he was anointed by Samuel, indicating that the Lord had determined to elevate him to that position, But this anointing was entirely a private affair between Samuel and Saul, Now that the time has come for the people to recognize their new leader, the Lord orchestrates a public moment to designate Saul, In v.20 a lot is taken to designate which tribe would produce the king, Then the Matrite family, which was Saul’s family, Clearly, this shows that the Lord was working to ensure the process of lots arrived at the proper person, The process may have looked random to an outsider, But the people of Israel understood instinctively that the outcome was a reflection of the Lord’s will, And it’s still a truth today, that no outcome in life is outside the control of the Lord, When it fell to Saul, they couldn’t find him. on the Bible. None of those conclusions are correct, of course, Saul is very much a legitimate and anointed king, Saul will rule with the full authority of any other earthly king, And the Lord is certainly not making a mistake in selecting the man, But the Lord has selected Saul as king as an exception to prove the rule, One day the Lord will anoint a member of Judah as king as He promised, And when that day comes, only Judah may rule from that point forward, But that day hasn’t come yet…so the Lord may appoint a Benjamite as the first king without breaking His word. upward. http://www.internetbible.net. of a statesman, a general, a prince.

This is the first confirmation that the Lord’s plan to appeal to the fleshly desires of the people has been successful, Samuel feeds their fleshly response saying, “See, there is no one else like this guy”, And to that we get the predictable response, “Long live the king”, In other words, the people are convinced that Saul is a perfect match because of his appearance, To be fair, they know he was selected by lots too, But I wonder what their response might have been if the lots had fallen upon a weak, short and comely fellow. v14-16: Saul returned to his uncle, who asked about the donkeys.

In the Septuagint, the full statement is: As we see at the end of the LXX version, Saul is told he will receive signs that the prophet’s word is trustworthy, Each sign Saul will receive involves a set of circumstances, Each circumstance is so specific that when they come to pass, they can only mean that the prophet has access to the mind of God, And in that way they validate the prophets’ word concerning Saul’s anointing as king, But each sign carries its own symbolic message to Saul concerning his new mission, So even as they provide confirmation, they also offer counsel, The first sign is connected to Saul’s search for his lost donkeys, As Saul journeys home, he will encounter two men who tell him that the donkeys have been found, And he will find that his father’s concern will have turned to Saul  himself, just as Saul suggested earlier, Saul’s father will say, “What shall I do about my son?”.
