The Pattern of Saul – Jacob Prasch

Scriptures

  1. Genesis
    • Genesis 49:27 ( Jacob Blesses His Sons )  [ Link ]
      • Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; in the morning he devours the prey, in the evening he divides the plunder.
  2. 1st Samuel
    • Samuel Anoints Saul ( 1st Samuel 10:8 ) [ Link ]
      • And thou shalt go down before me to Gilgal; and, behold, I will come down unto thee, to offer burnt offerings, and to sacrifice sacrifices of peace offerings: seven days shalt thou tarry, till I come to thee, and shew thee what thou shalt do.
    • Saul’s Unlawful Sacrifice ( 1st Samuel 13:8-9 ) [ Link ]
      • And Saul waited seven days for the time appointed by Samuel, but Samuel did not come to Gilgal, and the troops began to desert Saul. So he said, “Bring me the burnt offering and the peace offerings.” And he offered up the burnt offering.…
    • Saul’s Unlawful Sacrifice ( 1st Samuel 13:13-14 ) [ Link ]
      • …“You have acted foolishly,” Samuel declared. “You have not kept the command the LORD your God gave you; if you had, the LORD would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time.
      • But now your kingdom will not endure; the LORD has sought a man after His own heart and appointed him ruler over His people, because you have not kept the command of the LORD.”
    • The People Save Jonathan ( 1st Samuel 14:37 ) [ Link ]
      • So Saul inquired of God, “Shall I go down after the Philistines? Will You give them into the hand of Israel?But God did not answer him that day. Therefore Saul said, “Come here, all you leaders of the troops, and let us investigate how this sin has occurred today.…
    • Samuel Denounces Saul ( 1st Samuel 15:13 ) [ Link ]
      • …Early in the morning Samuel got up to confront Saul, but he was told, “Saul has gone to Carmel, and behold, he has set up a monument for himself and has turned and gone down to Gilgal.” When Samuel reached him, Saul said to him, “May the LORD bless you. I have carried out the LORD’s instructions.” But Samuel replied, “Then what is this bleating of sheep and lowing of cattle that I hear?”…
    • Samuel Denounces Saul ( 1st Samuel 15:21 ) [ Link ]
      • The troops took sheep and cattle from the plunder, the best of the things devoted to destruction, in order to sacrifice them to the LORD your God at Gilgal.”…
    • Samuel Denounces Saul ( 1st Samuel 15:22 ) [ Link ]
      • But Samuel declared: “Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obedience to His voice? Behold, obedience is better than sacrifice, and attentiveness is better than the fat of rams.…
    • Samuel Denounces Saul ( 1st Samuel 15:23 ) [ Link ]
      • For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance is like the wickedness of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, He has rejected you as king.”
    • David’s Oath to Saul ( 1st Samuel 24:19 ) [ Link ]
      • And you have shown this day how well you have dealt with me; for when the LORD delivered me into your hand, you did not kill me.
      • When a man finds his enemy, does he let him go away unharmed? May the LORD reward you with good for what you have done for me this day.
    • David’s Oath to Saul ( 1st Samuel 24:21 ) [ Link ]
      • …Now I know for sure that you will be king, and that the kingdom of Israel will be established in your hands. So now, swear to me by the LORD that you will not cut off my descendants or wipe out my name from my father’s house.” So David gave his oath to Saul. Then Saul returned home, but David and his men went up to the stronghold.…
  3. Ezekiah
    • Prophecy against Israel’s Shepherds ( Ezekiah 34:1-6 ) [ Link ]
      • And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
  4. Revelations
    • To the Church in Ephesus ( Revelations 2:6 ) – ( Link )
      • …Therefore, keep in mind how far you have fallen. Repent and perform the deeds you did at first. But if you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. But you have this to your credit: You hate the works of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
  5. Malachi
    • Robbing God ( Malachi 3:8 ) [ Link ]
      • …Yet from the days of your fathers, you have turned away from My statutes and have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” says the LORD of Hosts. “But you ask, ‘How can we return?’ “Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me!” You ask, “How do we rob You?” “In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, yet you—the whole nation—are still robbing Me.…
  6. Acts
    • The Fellowship of Believers ( Acts 2:47 ) [ Link ]
      • …With one accord they continued to meet daily in the temple courts and to break bread from house to house, sharing their meals with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
  7. 1st Timothy
    • Honoring Elders ( 1st Timothy 5:17 ) [ Link ]
      • If any believing woman has dependent widows, she must assist them and not allow the church to be burdened, so that it can help the widows who are truly in need. Elders who lead effectively are worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard at preaching and teaching. For the Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and, “The worker is worthy of his wages.”…

The House of David and the House of Saul (Jacob Prasch)

 

  1. Matthew 7:15-20
    • Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? “So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. “A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. “Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. “So then, you will know them by their fruits“.
  2. Matthew 7:21-23
    • “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. “Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ “And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; DEPART FROM ME, YOU WHO PRACTICE LAWLESSNESS.’

Preaching

  1. Gifts Versus Fruits ( Matthew 7:15-20 )
    • Jesus never said you will know them by their gifts
    • He said you will know by the fruits
  2. Follow Men
    • When they follow men, they are not really following God
  3. Faith of those who follow Saul, is not a good one
