Sunday Over Amsl to. It it it him and made the Burnt offerings himself. This on the surface was a sin but was Only an indication of a far More serious flaw or sin deep within Saul himself. When Samuel chastised him for his error Saul instead of confessing he had done wrong tried to justify his act by insisting it was expedient for him to won a great Victory Over the hordes of philistines mainly through the efforts of his son Jonathan though the account of the Victory makes it obvious that god was fighting on the Ide of Jonathan. Avid to extend the Victory Saul asked the lord whether he should pursue the philistines. The answer was silence. Convinced that one of his people had sinned by disobeying his command to eat nothing until the Battle was finished Saul discovered that Jonathan unaware of this unnecessary command had eaten some Honey and condemned him to die. But Jonathan was a favorite of the people and the teachings of Samuel made their selves Felt the people informed Saul they would not tolerate such an act than who had brought them Victory that Day. I Samuel 15 is concerned with Saul a disobedience regarding the destruction of the Amale kites. The am lekites were a powerful nomadic tribe the first of the Heathen nations to oppose the Progress of gods people after the exodus and thus doomed to destruction.

The most significant thing which Saul a act discloses is that he was not really Bent on m complying with the will of god. To Saul god was not a reality not the Power on whom everything depended. Saul realised that a Burnt offering should he made to propitiate him and prevent him from causing the Battle to go against the israelite but he did not think of god As the one being who could give him Success in Battle. Saul simply set aside a commandment from god through his Prophet Samuel to serve the needs of expediency. Uncompromising in his loyalty to god Samuel brushed aside the Flimsy excuse of expediency called the sin sin and chastised Saul severely. Speaking from his divine authority Samuel announced that god would take the kingdom of Israel from him and give it to another unrelated to him who would Stab Ash a dynasty that would perpetually Rule Judah. Thus Saul a determination to have his own Way when it was contrary to the will of god Cost him and his sons after him his kingdom. In spite of the rebuke Saul time for the execution of this divine sentence came during a amp a reign of Saul the israelite were victorious and though Saul destroyed the am lekites he spared agag the Amale Kite King and a the Best of the sheep oxen failings lambs and All that was Good a contrary to the command Samuel had received from god. When god informed Samuel of Saul a disobedience the aged Prophet took the matter up with the King. Saul protested his innocence saying that he went against gods will because he feared his people who wanted the Best of everything spared for sacrifice to the lord. Still excusing himself Saul pleaded with Samuel to Pardon Lofia sin and to turn again with him that he might worship the lord As though realizing that he was a stranger to god and could not worship him without the help of the Prophet this was the last time. Saul and Samuel Ever saw each other face to face. Saul iad rejected the word of god and there was nothing else for god to do but reject said As King Over Israel. Samuel denounced Saul for the second time hacked agag to pieces with a sword and Toft by Rev. I. W.
