Introduction As I read chapter 8 of 1 Samuel, I am reminded of an amusing sequence of events in the life of Jacob, described in Genesis 30 and Jacob flees to Paddan-aram, partly to find a wife from among his relatives and partly to flee from the anger of his brother, Esau.

Jacob has no money to pay the dowry for a wife, and so he ends up working for Laban, his father-in-law, for. We also read of King Saul’s failure to fulfill God’s decree when he preserves the life of Agag, the Amalekite king (1 Sam.

15 as the Haftorah). Mordecai, a descendant of Saul’s line, son of Kish, of the tribe of Benjamin (Est. cf. 1 Sam. ), must then finish off the job, so to speak. King James Version.

The King James Version is a translation named after King James I of England who commissioned the new English Bible translation in A.D. King James 'authorized' the new translation to be read in churches in England and beyond after it was first published in A.D.

Later known as the 'Authorized Version' inthe King James. 1 Samuel 8 New International Version (NIV) Israel Asks for a King. 8 When Samuel grew old, he appointed his sons as Israel’s leaders.

[] 2 The name of his firstborn was Joel and the name of his second was Abijah, and they served at Beersheba. 3 But his sons did not follow his waysThey turned aside after dishonest gain and accepted bribes and perverted justice. In Pisidian Antioch 20 All this took about years.

After this, God gave them judges until the time of Samuel the prophet. 21 Then the people asked for a king, and God gave them forty years under Saul son of Kish, from the tribe of Benjamin.

22 After removing Saul, He raised up David as their king and testified about him: ‘I have found David son of Jesse a man after My own heart. Daniel 5 New International Version (NIV) The Writing on the Wall.

5 King Belshazzar gave a great banquet for a thousand of his nobles and drank wine with them. 2 While Belshazzar was drinking his wine, he gave orders to bring in the gold and silver goblets that Nebuchadnezzar his father [] had taken from the temple in Jerusalem, so that the king and his nobles, his wives and his.

Answer: The book of Esther begins with a description of King Xerxes (or Ahasuerus) of Persia celebrating with the leading men of his kingdom.

At the conclusion of seven days of feasting, the king called Queen Vashti to appear before him. We are told this was “in order to display her beauty to the people and nobles, for she was lovely to look. Go now and save the hordes of sinners in Wunan. And as further proof of God's love for you and all that believe in your words, take your whole congregation and SHOW ALL THE SINNERS what faith in God can do.

Please Pastor. Go save them. Please go now. Thank you. God truly loves you and God will guide you there and back again. Yes, I'm sure. And tonight we’re going to talk about Joseph – Joseph – because God meant it for good. If you look at chapter 50 of Genesis, in ve Joseph says, “As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.” You meant it for evil, but God meant it.

Now he does not have in mind there a universal blessing, meaning he's going to save every single person from every single place, under every single place under the sun.

What he means is, what we see in the final version the book of Deuteronomy when the prophet or when John comes back and sees, he says behold there's a number that I cannot count.

Oppression by a New King 16 “When you help the Hebrew women give birth, observe them on the birthstools. If the child is a son, kill him; but if it is a daughter, let her live.” 17 The midwives, however, feared God and did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; they let the boys live.

18 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and asked them, “Why have you done this. D.A. Carson’s Scandalous: The Cross and Resurrection of Jesus is one of the most spiritually encouraging books I’ve read in quite a while. You can watch or listen to the original messages here.

When Jesus was hanging on the cross, the chief priests, scribes, and elders mocked Jesus, saying, “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of. King Xerxes told Prime Minister Haman to do this for Mordecai and Haman was humiliated by the experience. Mordecai found out what Prime Minister Haman had done and began to despair.

He knew that he had to appeal to Esther to save the people. Esther wanted to save the people, but there was one major problem. 15 “They have brought them from the Amalekites, for the people spared the best of the sheep and oxen, to sacrifice to the LORD your God; but the rest we have utterly destroyed” (verse 15).

20 Then Saul said to Samuel, “I did obey the voice of the LORD, and went on the mission on which the LORD sent me, and have brought back Agag the king.

God chose Solomon (1 Chronicles ), and the prophets (such as Nathan) were aware of this. Why was the man who touched the ark to keep it from falling killed by God. Wouldn't it just be a instinctive response to grasp something that was about to fall. It seems to cruel that God would do this.

2 Samuel and in 1 Chronicles tell the account of a man who tried to protect the ark of God and died as a consequence. David hides from Saul in the Wilderness, and providentially has two opportunities to kill Saul, but refuses since Saul is 'the Lord's anointed.' He also spares Nabal, takes Abigail as wife, seeks asylum from Saul with the Philistines, but is spared going into battle with Saul.

Finally, Saul seeks a medium to seek guidance from Samuel, but receives condemnation instead. Thank God Dr. King didn't sneeze. By E.J. Dionne On Sept. 20,Martin Luther King Jr. was signing copies of his first book, Stride Toward Freedom, at a Harlem bookstore when a deranged woman stabbed him in the chest.

Therefore the story of Jonah is the story of God telling a prophet of Israel to go prophesy to, and potentially save the souls of, the very people that he most hated and most wanted to see destroyed.

That is the drama of the book of Jonah. Unlike David their eyes were not on God, but on their difficult circumstances. David’s 2nd Inquiry – 1 Samuel “Then David inquired of the LORD once again.” David was not paralyzed by the fear of his men.

He knew that God, who had said fight the Philistines and save Keilah, could easily make his men willing to follow him. King Saul King Saul was the first king of Israel and for a time was a good king, even prophesying (1st Sam ) but God rejected him because of his disobedience to God.

He never fully obeyed. Daniel, of course, was devoted to God because he knew Him, and he was not afraid of what the king would do if he disobeyed this ruling. As a result, he prayed to God as usual and got thrown into the den of hungry, untamed lions for punishment.

So, why didn’t the lions eat Daniel. Daniel had a very close-knit relationship with God. Asa did not pray for God’s help. He used his own wisdom and bribed Ben-Hadad King of Aram to help him. Ben-Hadad helped Asa but God was not pleased that he had put his trust in man instead of the Lord.

(Jeremiah ) 2 Chronicles God rebukes (corrects) Asa’s sin through His prophet : Kelly Henderson. The book of Esther may not directly mention God, yet it clearly reveals God at work.

His name is not written in the book, but His fingerprints, as we say, are all over it. The coincidences, the amazing reversals, and the poetic justice that led to the deliverance of the Jews in Persia all proclaim the presence of God.17 If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king.

18 But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.'" ().
