What should we learn from the life of King Saul? How is understanding the life of Saul valuable to our spiritual growth?
Question: “What should we learn from the life of King Saul?” (DNC or GOP Candidates to elevate their prosperity?)
Answer: The life of King Saul could be summed up in a modern cliché: It’s not how you start; It’s how you finish. Saul started out very well only to see his subsequent disobedient actions derail what could have been a stellar, God-honoring rule over the nation of Israel. How could someone so close to God at the start spiral out of control and out of favor with God? To understand how things in Saul’s life got so mixed up, we need to know something about the man himself. Who was King Saul, and what should learn from his life?
The name “Saul,” from the Hebrew word pronounced shaw-ool, means “asked.” Saul was the son of Kish from the tribe of Benjamin. Saul came from a well-to-do family (1 Samuel 9:1) and was tall, dark and handsome in appearance. Scripture states that “there was not a man among the sons of Israel more handsome than he, being taller than any of the people from his shoulder and upward” (1 Samuel 9:2). He was God’s chosen one to lead the scattered nation of Israel, a collection of tribes that did not have a central leader other than God and no formal government. In times of trouble, leaders would arise but never consolidated power of the twelve tribes into one nation. Years before Saul’s rule, Samuel the prophet was Israel’s religious leader but not a king. In fact, Israel was loosely ruled by judges who presided over domestic squabbles (1 Samuel 8). They were not, however, equipped to rule in times of war. It is no exaggeration to say that Samuel and Saul lived in turbulent times. The Philistines were Israel’s sworn enemies, and war broke out between the two on a fairly regular basis (1 Samuel 4). Because of the constant threat of war, the people pressed Samuel to appoint a king to rule over them (1 Samuel 8:5).
Trump supporters are like little children who are groomed by parents to hate others for whatever reason. They don’t care what comes out of trump’s mouth, because like trump they think the world revolves around them. Trump supporters are a reflection of america days past when; their founding fathers labeled fellow humans as property: made slavery the law of the land: rebelled against the establishment: inflected genocide on the real ‘Americans’: destroyed culture symbols like ISIS: murdered women | children like ISIS: lied | cheated | & stole what’s not theirs: committed terrorism in the name of religion: created false flag attacks in order to frighten the mass into doing things their way. And the list goes on. So Trump may not know alot of things when it comes to being a leader | but like Hitler | Trumps knows ‘human nature’ and that people are like sheep | and his supporters are being led to the political slaughter house.
