Sauls history with witchcraft's 1 Samuel Chapter 16 comment on 10/01/2020, 4:56pm...

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you:

1 Samuel 28 &

1 Samuel 16:23

And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took an harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.

1 Samuel 18:10

And it came to pass on the morrow, that the evil spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied in the midst of the house: and David played with his hand, as at other times: and there was a javelin in Saul's hand.

1 Samuel 16:14

But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.

1 Samuel 16:15

And Saul's servants said unto him, Behold now, an evil spirit from God troubleth thee.

1 Samuel 19:9

And the evil spirit from the LORD was upon Saul, as he sat in his house with his javelin in his hand: and David played with his hand.

1 Samuel 19:20

And Saul sent messengers to take David: and when they saw the company of the prophets prophesying, and Samuel standing as appointed over them, the Spirit of God was upon the messengers of Saul, and they also prophesied.

1 Samuel 11:6

And the Spirit of God came upon Saul when he heard those tidings, and his ANGER was kindled greatly.

1 Samuel 28:7

Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.

Acts 19:15

And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye?

>>Most of Sauls problems were of pride. The people wanted a King and God gave them what they wanted; which was for someone else to be a go-between so they didn't have to speak to God.

Rebellion is AS the sin of witchcraft. Saul sought out witches.

The day he "died" he prohibited the customary sacrifice to God for victory in Battle; and told the soldiers He would be their sacrifice! Saul and his 2 sons all died.


Mark Grubb's 1 Samuel Chapter 16 comment on 10/01/2020, 9:59am...

I am aware of Saul and seeking a familar spirit (witch). My question was since GOD was upset with Saul due to his unfaithfulness by seeking answers from a witch instead of his divine direction did God send a mean spirit that was within his own emotions and unrest and aniexty to him? The scriptures tell us when David played the Harp for him the spirit went away. I just believe some people will misunderstand the narrative. God did not send an "evil spirit" such as a demonic spirit. Thanks for the response.
