Hello! Are you
anxious for a great Daily Bread story today? Let's find out what's going on in the First
Book of Samuel at this point, shall we? During that time, the Philistines
gathered their armies to go into war with Israel.
Achish, who thought David was
now a supporter of the Philistines, since Saul was after him, approached David
and told him, "You're expected to go into battle with me and my men." David
responded, "Of course, then you can see for yourself what we can do." Achish
replied, "Then I will make you my bodyguard for life."
Remember now that
Samuel had died, and all of Israel had mourned for him and buried him in Ramah,
his hometown.Saul, in the meantime had banned all mediums (witches) and
psychics from the land.
SAUL AND THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE TRUTH
THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE CONCERN
Philistines had assembled and set up camp in Shuem; and Saul assembled the army
of Israel and set up camp in Gilboa.
Saul saw how large the Philistine army actually was, he became very afraid. When
he asked the Lord for guidance, the Lord didn't answer him, either by dreams, or
Urim (this was used by the High Priest to receive guidance from God), nor by
You gotta figure
that Saul was particularly freaked out because he knew that David was staying in
Philistine territory, and that the Lord was with David. He had even stopped
pursuing David, so Saul couldn't figure out what in the world was going on. The
Philistines must have taken on an added element of fear for Saul.
SAUL AND THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE MESSAGE
THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE FEAR
So, Saul sent
his servants to find a witch that he could go and see to get guidance from. Saul
obviously knew seeking out a witch was wrong, hence why he banned them from
practicing in Israel. But being very impatient and frustrated, he allowed the
spirit of fear to overtake him.
came back to him and told him they did find a witch at Endor. So Saul disguised
himself and took two men with him to go visit the witch. He told her he needed
to talk to a spirit that he would name. The woman told him, "You know that Saul
has banned all mediums and psychics
from the land. Why are you trying to trap me and get me killed?"
Saul swore to her
by the name of the Lord, "As surely as the Lord lives, there will be no
punishment for you if you do this thing for me." So the woman asked, "Whose
spirit do you want me to call?" Saul responded, "Call up Samuel." And when the
woman saw Samuel, she screamed and said to Saul, "Why have you deceived me? YOU

THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE WARNING
"Don't be afraid. What did you see?" She said, "I see a god (or spirit or ghost)
coming out of the earth." "What does he look like?" Saul asked. "An old man
wrapped in a robe," she answered, and Saul realized it was indeed Samuel and
bowed with his face to the ground.
Samuel said to
Saul, "Why have you disturbed me by calling me back?" Saul answered, "I'm so
troubled. The Philistines are declaring war against me, and God has left me and
won't answer me, not by Prophets, nor by dreams, so I called for you so you can
tell me what I should do."
Samuel said, "Why ask me since the Lord has left you? The Lord has done what
He said he would do through me. The Lord has taken the kingdom from you and
given it to David because you didn't obey Him or carry out His command to kill
everyone in Amalek.
SAUL AND THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE DISCUSSION
THE WITCH OF ENDOR BIBLE DANGER
The Lord will hand over Israel and you into the hands of the
Philistines and tomorrow you and your sons shall be with me. The Lord will also
deliver the army of Israel into the hands of the Philistines.
At that, Saul fell
full length on the ground and was very afraid because of what Samuel had said.
He had no strength because he hadn't eaten all that day or night. And the woman
came to Saul and saw how troubled he was and said, "Sir, I have obeyed you at
the risk of my life. Now please listen to your servant and let me give you some
bread to eat so you can have strength when you return on your way."
But Saul refused
and said, "I will not eat." But his servants and the woman together convinced
him to listen. So Saul got up and sat on the bed (couch). The woman prepared a
fatted calf, and baked some unleavened bread and brought it to Saul and his
servants. They ate and when they finished they left.
