“Make Them a King” (1 Sam 8:1-22)
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 02, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..

Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, “No, but we will have a king over us, that we also may be like all the nations, and that our king may judge us and go out before us and fight our battles.” And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he repeated them in the hearing of the Lord. So the Lord said to Samuel, “Heed their voice, and make them a king.” And Samuel said to the men of Israel, “Every man go to his city.” (vs19-22)

If we desire a king besides Jesus Christ, then God will give us a king, but this king is Satan, and he will oppress us (vs6-14). We read, “And the Lord said to Samuel, ‘Heed the voice of the people in all that they say to you; for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them… So Samuel told all the words of the Lord to the people who asked him for a king. And he said, ‘This will be the behavior of the king who will reign over you: He will take your sons and appoint them for his own chariots and to be his horsemen, and some will run before his chariots. He will appoint captains over his thousands and captains over his fifties, will set some to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and some to make his weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. He will take your daughters to be perfumers, cooks, and bakers. And he will take the best of your fields, your vineyards, and your olive groves, and give them to his servants. He will take a tenth of your grain and your vintage, and give it to his officers and servants. And he will take your male servants, your female servants, your finest young men, and your donkeys, and put them to his work. He will take a tenth of your sheep. And you will be his servants. And you will cry out in that day because of your king whom you have chosen for yourselves, and the Lord will not hear you in that day.” It is not possible to turn from grace and find a better life because self-service is satanic, and so is every lifestyle that refuses the government of Jesus Christ. He is the lover of souls, the One who saves sinners, and He is to be trusted, but unbelievers despise His dominion, though He is the best Master possible.

Many think that sin is better than salvation, but it isn’t so. Sin takes joy and gives abominable pleasures: it hurts others, lives for selfish reasons, and it is EVIL before God, which must be punished. He would be unrighteous to bless our wickedness, and following anyone but Jesus Christ is following a demon, a liar, and a taker; it is someone who will hurt you ultimately. Jesus said, ““Most assuredly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep [the way of salvation]. All who ever came before Me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture [salvation]. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly [now and eternally].” Hear God’s warning: He gives CONSEQUENCES for disobedience, and we cannot have His peace in sin, nor His Paradise after! Choose the Lord Jesus, and He’ll rule you wisely, doing all that you need for salvation, hope, and peace; it is a hard life, but He takes our burdens, and it is a GOOD life, whereby we love others, live rightly, and give honor to Whom it is due. Jesus Christ is Lord, so bow to His favor, receive His compassion, and serve Him singularly. Paul said, “I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I a may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ (2 Cor 11:2).” Do not divide yourself, but be loyal to Him, and He will be your peace.

How much has sin taken from us already? We die, and we’ve lost the peace of the Garden of Eden, and we’ll suffer hell eternal if we do not repent. Sin takes while Christ gives, so look to Him. He may not seem like He’s meeting your needs, but He is faithful, gives EVERY good gift, and no one trusts Him in vain.

The people wanted another king when they had Jesus Christ, so they could be like the other nations, but we’ve been called OUT of the world to live distinctly (vs1-5). We read, “Now it came to pass when Samuel was old that he made his sons judges over Israel. The name of his firstborn was Joel, and the name of his second, Abijah; they were judges in Beersheba. But his sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice. Then all the elders of Israel gathered together and came to Samuel at Ramah, and said to him, ‘Look, you are old, and your sons do not walk in your ways. Now make us a king to judge us like all the nations.” They were right to reject Samuel’s unfaithful sons, but do not let other people’s failures excuse you from Christ. He is the Ruler that we need, the only One who gives grace, and He is a Savior to everyone who believes.
