1Samuel 11:5 “And, behold, Saul came after the herd out of the field; and Saul said What aileth the people that they weep And they told him the tidings of the men of Jabesh.”
1Samuel 11:6 “And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his anger was kindled greatly.”
The representatives of the elders kept moving round till they eventually mention the issue in the hearing of Saul. They kept moving round till they arrived at the Gibeah of Saul.
Immediately they spoke to Saul, the Bible says the Spirit of God came upon him and his anger was kindled greatly.
1Samuel 11:6 “The Spirit of God came on Saul when he heard the report and he flew into a rage.” (MSG)
What I can call a “holy anger” was sparked when they mentioned this matter to Saul. Note carefully that several people have heard the same thing but were busy crying, which was the response the devil expected.
I’m sure someone reading this piece might be thinking now that; it was the Spirit of God that came upon Saul that made him act differently. Well, you’re very right but that was in their days.
In those days, the Spirit comes upon a man as He wills, usually to accomplish a given task and gets lifted immediately after, hear this:
Judges 14:6 “And the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.”
Judges 15:14 “And when he came unto Lehi, the Philistines shouted against him: and the Spirit of the LORD came mightily upon him, and the cords that were upon his arms became as flax that was burnt with fire, and his bands loosed from off his hands.”
We saw in Judges how the Spirit normally comes upon Samson to function but departs once the mission is accomplished. However, in our days it is completely different.
To be continued…
