Msg #1845 Signs for Saul

What The Bible Says

Good Samaritan's Penny Pulpit by Pastor Ed Rice

 

The signs given to Saul, son of Kish, as he entered into a full time ministry are rich with insights that often get overlooked. Two men at Rachel's sepulcher in the border of Benjamin at Zelza (shadow) gave Saul advice about his present physical dilemma. The setting invites recognition of the old paths and the breaking down of boarders. God gives called men wise advisers that stay on the old paths and know how to push back borders. Then three men met Saul in the plain of Tabor (mound). At Tabor stood an old oak tree that marked a mountain ridge extending across the plain to Nazareth. That is rich with symbolism. The men had meat, bread, and wine. Saul only got some bread. One might not always eat meat in the ministry, and one should not drink wine (Prov 20:1,23:29-35,31:4-7), but the bread of life, manna, and “not by bread alone” are all rich in symbolism for a God called minister. Lastly one going into ministry is going to the hill of God, will cross a garrison of Philistines, and meet a company of prophets with all manner of musical instruments. Psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs of Col. 3:16 should come to mind here, not the rock bands of apostate Christendom. Look at the next thought, “And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man. And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as occasion serve thee; for God is with thee” (1Sam10:6-7). It is sad how Saul tainted his calling to the point where God set him aside and called another. But God's provision for his calling was impeccable. When God calls he provides all the needed resources.
