The People Wants A King
1 Samuel 8 King James Version (KJV)
8 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. ( Samuel was a man of God from birth and was called of God. ( 1 Samuel 1:19 And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the Lord remembered her. 20 Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the Lord. It is also the same as; Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew..... (Notice now that when Samuel was old, that "he made". It was not God made but Samuel made his sons judges. The same thing is happening today in the churches all over. Yes, when one of these so-called pastors grow old they turn everything over to a son and the pastor becomes a bishop. It goes on and on. Man-made preachers, not God has chosen. They have become judges and the ones to rule over the people. These so-called pastors, preachers, bishops, evangelists think God cannot judge. Job 22:13 (KJV) And thou sayest, How doth God know? can he judge through the dark cloud?
( Look at vs 3 and see what happens when man appoints someone.)
3 And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment. ( Here is what happens when a so-called man of God takes over. They walk not in the ways of a chosen one from God. They cause the people also not to walk in God's path. But the people wanted a King. Turned aside after lucre means they went back to OT tithing. They turned back for filthy lucre, what is not required from God. They became greedy of filthy lucre, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. They also take bribes to influence them to do a certain thing. They also may take a certain gift. I remember when I was in church. They took up money for the pastor and his wife to go on a cruise. There are so many gifts that they gave this man and his wife that I cannot even remember and yes, I did also. See what this filthy lucre and bribes can cause. It will cause perverted judgment. They distorted the things of God for bribes and money. They twisted the things of God handling the word of God deceitfully and corrupt the word of God. They brought up another jesus, and says this jesus is God. They are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. They are deceiving the people but the people still want a king.
1 Sam. 8:4 Then all the elders of Israel gathered themselves together, and came to Samuel unto Ramah,
( these elders were OT men having authority. Such as the bishop in the church today. They assembled themselves together. Again as the church does at certain time. They have their General Superintendents, General Secretary-Treasurer, Assistant General Superintendent, Director of Global Missions, General Ladies Ministries President etc. But they gather together each year and decides what is what. Not one, but all do. They make good money for being a so-called leader. Yes, they accept filthy lucre for the things of God. Not one but all. You have your UPC, Church Of Lord Jesus Christ, Church Of God and many more. Proverbs 13:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. ( yes, it is all in vain.) God does not need all of this. But they think he does.
Sam. 8:5.... And said unto him, Behold, thou art old, and thy sons walk not in thy ways: now make us a king to judge us like all the nations ( Samuel had grown old and his sons were not doing as Samuel. Samuel had become feeble and was not able to lead. So they wanted Samuel to appoint them a king, to rule over them and judge them like all the nations. They wanted someone that would have the authority over the country and the people. Who is that king that has the same authority over the people in the church today? The pastor, or bishop. Yes, they rule the people, and tell them what they can and can not do. I have said this before and I will say it again. My pastor at that time told me and this is his words. "Brother, Larry", you do not need to associate with a certain sister". This sister was not even in his church, a matter of fact she was in no church. But she had more truth about her and still does that this pastor will ever have. But he was the king of that church. He also told me not to "question his authority". These churches even have the king's chair in the church. Still, on vs 5...judge us like all the nations.... which means they wanted to organize and be governed by rules and regulations LIKE THE CHURCH IS TODAY. They wanted to be an organized body of people under the leadership of a king. They wanted to follow after idols especially, all the evil holidays. They wanted their new years' idol with the sunrise service and breakfast. They wanted their valentines, easter with all that goes with it. halloween with all the candy a child would never eat, xmass with all that goes with it also. There are more also. They want ballgames, tvs. They wanted everything all of the other nations had and especially the people wanted a king. God's word says " They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off".( Church world, your kings, and princes, with all your silver, gold, and Idols will cut off. It will do you no good. All of your graven images will be cut off.
1 Sam. 8:6 ....But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord. ( Samuel was very displeased and grieved with this. So Samuel went to God in prayer. I also remember when I was in church, the pastor called all the men and we went in his fancy office. I do not recall what it was about. It had something to do with his retirement or his wife's insurance that they would get paid after they left the church. Well anyhow, he wanted the men to vote on it then. They all agreed but me. He said "Brother Larry" how do you vote? I said I can not vote, I need to pray about it and did he get upset. So I was as Samuel, I wanted to pray about and it displeased me that the King ( pastor) wanted no part of what a peon had to say. Anyhow he got what he wanted as usual from all of the other men. When the king spoke his servants gave him what he wanted. The king thought he was better or more important than all others.
7 And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them.( The LORD spoke to Samuel and told him to hear what the people had to say to him. They did not refuse Samuel they refused God. People I am telling you to hearken unto the true Israel of God. Listen to what they have to say. They are not going to say anything that is not scriptural. But most want their king and they reject the living God. He said he would not rule as King but give them the king they wanted. He did, he gave them law. Law was never of God. God never told anyone to sacrifice an animal for their blood. The only true sacrifice was the blood of Jesus Christ.
8 According to all the works which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee. ( God told Samuel... This is nothing new, they have done this ever since they brought them up out of Egypt. The same thing is happening in the church. God brought people out of Egypt and brought them unto the land of the true Israel ( Grace). But they were satisfied with Egypt (Law) and their king (church or pastor or law) that rules the people. The same as Samuel, you are not rejecting the true ministers of God. You are rejecting the living God. Instead of Jesus being the King. the church brought up another jesus and they made God into a man. See they are serving other gods. They bowed down to false doctrine and just accepted anything in the church. They bowed down to REPEAT AFTER ME SALVATION. they also bowed down to baptism in the name of FATHER,SON, HOLY GHOST. ALSO EVIL HOLIDAYS . 10% tithes which is of law. Yes, they fell from GRACE and went back to LAW.
1 Sam. 8:9.... Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them. ( Here God said to listen to them and hear what they have to say, nevertheless, you disapprove of or object giving them a warning. God said show them what manner of person this is, that you have chosen to rule over you. God also told Samuel to tell them that they need to consider this matter.
10 And Samuel told all the words of the Lord unto the people that asked of him a king. ( Samuel told them all that God said. He did not add unto the word or diminish from the word... Deuteronomy 12:32 What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it.
11 And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horsemen; and some shall run before his chariots. ( Is this not what the king in the church does? Sure it is. He appoints to his liking, who will do what he wants them to do. Not anointed of God. He assigns a job or role to (someone). They did not like the apostles when they appointed someone to take the place of Judas.
Acts 1....22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us, must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chose. 25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place. See the difference. 1 Sam. said that the king over them would appoint them for himself and Acts said the man was appointed by God through prayer. Sure these two men were appointed but it was by prayer that showed them which one to choose. And as I said in the early part of this message: when one of these so-called pastors grow old they turn over to a son and the pastor becomes a bishop. These kings rule over everything in the church.
1Sam. 8:12.... And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
13 And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. ( they want the daughters of Christ to be cooks. They do not want the sweet-smelling odor ur of the ointment that a woman has to share. They say a woman belongs in the kitchen.They do not think a daughter of Christ has a revelation and will not allow her to share what God has given her. I heard a woman say one time that when she had a great revelation from God, her husband said: " I am the one that needs to share this." Even though God had given her the revelation. The man wants to be king and "The People Want A King". They want the woman to be like Martha was cumbered about much serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid her therefore that she help me. ... They don't want her to be a Mary.... Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment. The odour was sweet smelling to the nostril of God, odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God.
14 And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your oliveyards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants. ( here he takes the fields from the people that has been plowed and ready to plant the seed. He will take the vineyards and oliveyards that was planted and watered but now ready to produce. He will take the corn and wheat out of the fields that you worked so hard in and now your labor is in vain. He will take everything and give it to his servants. The ones that obey his command and are his slave. He is as Adam, serpent was more subtil. This king and his servants ( sons) must have salaries to support them, which must be paid out of the fields and vineyards
15 And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers, and to his servants. ( I already knew what the tenth was that he would take. But rather than just tell you, let me show you. This is from Strong's: to tithe, take the tenth part of, give a tithe, take a tithe
(Qal) to tithe
(Piel) to give a tithe
(Hiphil) to take a tithe
He was giving it to his officers which most of the time was his sons. They also give to their servants, that they bring in to sing and lead worship and call them their praise team. They do this to keep the people happy so they will not forsake them.
They tell all of the people lies Malachi 3:10 [Full Chapter]
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. ( they tell you if you pay your tithes to them you will receive a blessing that shall not be room big enough to hold your blessing. Tell me, people, where is that big blessing that you received from these lying kings? I can tell you from experience how evil these men are. They will go to a widows house every month that she gets a small SS check and pick up her tithes. The evilest is the one that was my mom's pastor for many years. She was in the nursing home and he she got $30.00 a month after the nursing home got their money. They would give her $30.00 that she would take and buy things she needed for herself. Well, this evil man got $3.00 of that. Then he asked me if I wanted the $3.00 that he had gotten from my mama. Such evil from this man.
This tithing is not of God. This is of man. This is adding to the word. Because under the New Testament there is nowhere anyone is commanded to pay tithes. John 8:44 [Full Chapter]
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (Yes, your king ( pastor etc.) is a liar and the father of it. See the seed comes from a man. The man ( pastor etc) is the father which sows the seed into the woman ( church). So when he speaketh a lie it passes from him to the church people.
1Sam. 8:16-19..... 6 And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work. ( I hope the church people can see this. He will put you to work as the asses of the field. He will not plow and feed you. He will employ others for his sermons. Women will become a bondwoman a female bondservant or slave. You will become as Hagar. He will only take those that agree with him.
17 He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants. ( here is another tenth, he will take from the flock as his servants.
18 And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the Lord will not hear you in that day. ( In that day you will cry out, call for help from God but he will not hear. It was your choice, to begin with, and God told them that you chose him, not me. God sent a man of God, Samuel to warn you. God is sending some out today to warn the church. But they refuse the ones that God has chosen for his work. God word says..... Proverbs 1:25-28 King James Version (KJV)
25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;
27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me: ( people this is a serious matter. You need to quit your playing around with God.
1 Sam. 8:19 Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; ( They refused the voice of Samuel which had heard from God. You also refused the voice of others that heard the voice of God and say we had rather have our king.
20 That we also may be like all the nations; and that our king may judge us, and go out before us, and fight our battles.
21 And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the Lord. ( Samuel had a talk with the LORD and look what happened
22 And the Lord said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.
