Rather, there will be righteousness and peace covering this earth like the waters cover the sea. In these books the coming millennial Kingdom is foreshadowed in several respects; and in the setting up of the kingdom of Israel we observe three things that our world needs: 1 a king with power who exercises that power in righteousness; 2 a king who will rule in full dependence upon God; and 3 a king who will rule in full obedience to God.
The Lord Jesus Christ, the coming King of kings, is the very One the world so desperately needs today. McGee, J. Thru the Bible Commentary, Vol.
1 and 2 Samuel (Old Testament Guides)
There is a time, I know not when, A place, I know not where, Which marks the destiny of men To heaven or despair. There is a line by us not seen Which crosses every path, The hidden boundary between God's patience and His wrath. To cross that limit is to die, To die, as if by stealth.
It may not pale the beaming eye, Nor quench the glowing health. The conscience may be still at ease, The spirits light and gay; That which is pleasing still may please, And care be thrust away. But on that forehead God hath set Indelibly a mark, By man unseen, for man as yet Is blind and in the dark.
And still the doomed man's path below May bloom like Eden bloomed. He did not, does not, will not know, Nor feel that he is doomed.
He feels, he sees that all is well, His every fear is calmed. He lives, he dies, he wakes in hell, Not only doomed, but damned. Oh, where is that mysterious bourn, By which each path is crossed, Beyond which God himself hath sworn That he who goes is lost?go here

How long may men go on in sin? How long will God forbear? Where does hope end, and where begin The confines of despair? One answer from those skies is sent, "Ye who from God depart, While it is called today, repent, And harden not your heart. I hold the mirror up to nature. I only know the heart of a righteous man. Churches have nothing to fear from genuine psychic phenomena.

The road to Endor is easy to tread for mother or yearning wife. There it is sure we shall meet our dead as they were even in life. Earth has not dreamed of the blessing in store for the desolate hearts on the road to Endor. Whispers shall comfort us out of the dark hand of God that we know. Visions and voices look and hark shall prove that our tale is true. And to those that have passed to the further shore may be hailed at a price on the road to Endor. Oh, the road ot Endor is the oldest road and the craziest road of all. Straight it runs to the witches abode as it did in the days of Saul.
And nothing has changed of the sorrow in store, for such as go down to the road to Endor. In the fertile fields and the boundless prairies and it was not there. In her rich mines and her vast world commerce and it was not there.
Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness, did I understand the secrets of her genius and power. America is great because she is good. And if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great. Also sign me up to receive Thru the Bible's monthly newsletter by email.

Summary The establishment of a monarchy in Israel is the topic of 1 Samuel , which focuses on the careers of three key figures: Samuel Chapters 1—8 , Saul Chapters 9—15 , and David Chapters 16— Samuel Hannah prays for a child at the temple in Shiloh, and the priest Eli assures her the petition will be answered. Her son Samuel is born, and Hannah devotes him to service at the Shiloh temple.
Years later Eli's corrupt sons, Hophni and Phinehas, die in battle against the Philistines as Samuel had predicted.
The Philistines take the Ark of the Ccovenant, which brings plagues on them. Fearing the plagues, the Philistines return the Ark to the Israelites.
Samuel emerges as the leader of Israel—priest, prophet, and judge. When Samuel's sons can't rule effectively, the elders of Israel ask for a king. Samuel grants their request but gives strong warnings: a king will take their sons and daughters into service, will appropriate their agricultural lands, and will extort their possessions.
Saul Saul, a "handsome young man," meets Samuel, who helps him on an errand and then reveals that Yahweh has chosen Saul to be King over Israel. Saul initially proves himself worthy of the task by defeating Nahash, an Ammonite king who had been oppressing the Israelites.

Soon Saul runs into trouble by performing sacrifices when Samuel was absent, giving capricious commands to his troops, and violating instructions to destroy all the spoils of a battle. At Yahweh's instruction, Samuel goes to Bethlehem to meet a man named Jesse, and anoints his youngest son, David, to replace Saul as king. David A talented lyre player, David enters Saul's service as his musician and armor bearer.
After Saul’s Death
David's defining moment comes when he faces the fearsome champion of the Philistine army, Goliath, and kills him with only a sling and stones. As David rises in influence, he becomes an army commander, befriends Saul's son Jonathan, and marries Saul's daughter Michal. As David's renown eclipses Saul's, Saul becomes jealous and suspicious of David, and Saul attempts to kill David on multiple occasions—but David repeatedly eludes him.
Unable to reconcile with Saul, David gathers followers, taking up residence among the Philistines under the protection of King Achish of Gath. As Philistine armies gather against him, Saul finds a sorceress at Endor who calls up the spirit of Samuel. Samuel's ghost tells Saul the armies of Israel will lose, and Saul and Jonathan will die the next day.
David's band, distrusted by some of the Philistines, fights an Amalekite raiding party, while the Philistines defeat Saul at Mount Gilboa. Three of Saul's sons die, and Saul is wounded by archers before falling on his sword. Analysis The book of 1 Samuel serves multiple purposes within the Deuteronomistic History.
