Journal Through the Bible: Week 38 Monday

I Samuel 9:1-10:16

Does God issue any commands in this passage?

  • God told Samuel the day before Saul and his servant arrived at the village where Samuel was holding a sacrificial feast that they were coming and that Samuel was to anoint Saul as king of Israel.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised to use Saul to deliver Israel from the Philistines.

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • All of the kingly preparations made for Saul are a foretaste and reminder of the preparations God has made for Jesus, the eternal King of Israel.

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Samuel anointed Saul but Saul did not immediately take possession of the kingdom because everyone and everything were not yet prepared for his kingdom. God has already anointed Jesus as the King but He has not returned to reign yet because not everything and everybody has been fully prepared according to God's plan. When all has been made ready Jesus will reign as the only King forever.
