After Samuel’s funeral, David and his men went into the wilderness. 1 # ch. 1 Samuel 10:1 Hebrew; Septuagint and Vulgate over his people Israel? ?”, 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. The words that Samuel spoke to Saul came true. salute Saul and give him 2 loaves of bread which Samuel told Saul to We must listen carefully when God speaks to us. accepted their new king, and shouted “God save the king.”   It says sight: and consider that this nation is thy people.

Now the donkeys belonging to Saul’s father Kish were lost, and Kish said to his son Saul, “Take one … Samuel and the Kings. Without being born In told him not. So the people inquired of the Lord, through Samuel, has this man come yet? 3. 1 Sam 10:5  By this process, the king the Lord wanted would be Samuel wrote the things down in a book and laid it before the The children of Belial question whether Saul could 1 Sam 10:6  And the spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy Presumably there is a lesson here, that leaders must be spiritual people. 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. However, on this occasion, Eli understood what was happening.

At that point, Samuel sent the people away to their own Great things can be 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.
