Samuel, The Faithful Prophet

Presently the kid Samuel served the LORD before Eli. Also, the expression of the LORD was uncommon in those days … What’s more, … the LORD called Samuel. …

At that point the LORD said to Samuel: “Observe, … I will perform against Eli all that I have spoken …

So Samuel developed, and the LORD was with him and given none of his words a chance to tumble to the ground. And all Israel … realized that Samuel had been built up as a prophet of the LORD. (1 Samuel 3:1-2,11-12,19-20, NKJV Request a prophetic word

At that point Samuel addressed all the place of Israel, saying, “On the off chance that you come back to the LORD with every one of your souls, at that point set away the remote divine beings and the Ashtoreths from among you, and set up your souls for the LORD, and serve Him just; and He will convey you from the hand of the Philistines.” So the offspring of Israel set away the Baals and the Ashtoreths, and served the LORD as it were.

So they … fasted that day, and said there,”We have trespassed against the LORD.”…

So the offspring of Israel said to Samuel, “Don’t stop to shout out to the LORD our God for us, that He may spare us from the hand of the Philistines.”

… At that point Samuel shouted out to the LORD for Israel, and the LORD addressed him.

So the Philistines were repressed, and they didn’t come any longer into the domain of Israel. Furthermore, the hand of the LORD was against the Philistines every one of the times of Samuel.

Also, Samuel made a decision about Israel every one of a mind-blowing times. (1 Samuel 7:3,4,6,8,9,13,15, NKJV)

… at the point when Samuel was old … he made his children made a decision over Israel…. Be that as it may, his children did not stroll in his ways …

At that point every one of the older folks of Israel assembled and came to Samuel at Ramah, and said to him, “… Presently make us a lord to pass judgment on us like every one of the countries.”

In any case, the thing disappointed Samuel … Also, the LORD said to Samuel, “Notice the voice of the individuals in all that they state to you; for they have not rejected you, however they have rejected Me, that I ought not rule over them. (1 Sam 8:1,3-7, NKJV)

Samuel (actually “Heard by God”), an Ephraimite (a relative of Joseph), the child of Elkanah and Hannah, was wonderfully considered as the aftereffect of petition (1 Samuel 1:1-20), and given to the Lord as a blessing: he turned into the Israelite slave of Eli, the High Priest (1 Samuel 1:21-2:11). Since Samuel was neither a Levite nor a cleric, he was prohibited from contacting any of the blessed things inside the sanctuary, the sanctuary itself, the special raised area before the sanctuary, and even the window ornaments of the yard around the sanctuary. He was fundamentally consigned to performing such modest undertakings as conveying water, getting wood for the flame, treating leathers, and taking out the trash, but then, he played out his obligations as unto the Lord.

As a result of his reliability, the Lord called Samuel and gave him a prophetic word against Eli, his lord. He reluctantly related the expressions of the Lord to the Eli, and because of Samuel’s reliability, the Lord built up him as a prophet according to all Israel. A long time later, Samuel had the option to utilize his notoriety to rouse a restoration, and reestablish Israel’s association with the Lord. In endorsement, the Lord curbed the Philistines at Samuel’s solicitation and kept them from warring against Israel every one of an amazing times.

At the point when Samuel was old, he attempted to set up his children as judges over Israel, yet the older folks rejected them and requested a lord. Despite the fact that Samuel legitimately felt rejected, and even cautioned Israel about the results of their solicitation, Saul the child of Kish was made ruler over Israel (1 Samuel 10:17-25).

So what exercises would we be able to gain from Samuel? In the first place, the Lord is no respecter of rank: He considers the High Priest and the slave the same. Second, the Lord profoundly respects the loyal and eager execution of one’s close to home service, regardless of how modest the errands may appear according to the world. Third, steadfastness prompts more prominent degrees of blessing. Forward, the Lord will never relinquish us, despite the fact that we might be dismissed by the very individuals who advantage most from our service.
