Scripture: 1 Samuel 15:1-3
1 Samuel 15:1-3 says, “Samuel also said to Saul, ‘The Lord sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the Lord. Thus says the Lord of hosts: “I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”’” God came with a judicial assignment for Saul. And the assignment was simple. If we go to Deuteronomy 25:17-19 we see the reason why. Amalek attacked Israel when they came out of Egypt. They waited until the end of the day and attacked the end of the procession. They did not conduct war honorably. They attacked women and children and shed innocent blood. God really takes notice how people conduct war and those who choose to war without honor, God will cut off their birthright. If people raise their kids to war without honor, we can pray judicially and God will cut off their birthright until they have no children at all. God is not playing. He is real and is the Judge of all the Earth. You and I had better get to know Him! Saul failed a judicial assignment. Is God giving judicial assignments today? With the kind of leadership America has right now, the entire American church should be on a judicial assignment! But our traditions have made the Word of God of none effect. If we could get beyond tradition, we could get to know the God of khaw-fates and the God who cuts off. If we get to know the God Who desires to kill, then we are just a prayer away from changing history. Then, the demonized will no longer rule!
