SAMUEL AND THE WITCH OF ENDOR


 

Samuel and the witch of Endor is a very interesting article. We have shown from other articles that the spirit of man goes back to God at death, and the spirits of beasts [children of the devil] go down to hell. Samuel was a man of God; his spirit would have gone to God when he died.

Heb 11:32  And what more shall I say? For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon and Barak and Samson and Jephthah, also of David and Samuel and the prophets:

 

Saul found a woman with a familiar spirit, because God the Father would not communicate with Saul.

 

1Sa 28:6  And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by the prophets.

1Sa 28:7  Then Saul said to his servants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her." And his servants said to him, "In fact, there is a woman who is a medium at En Dor."

 

The witch saw Samuel come up and realised that it was King Saul who was there with her.

 

1Sa 28:11  Then the woman said, "Whom shall I bring up for you?" And he said, "Bring up Samuel for me."

1Sa 28:12  When the woman saw Samuel, she cried out with a loud voice. And the woman spoke to Saul, saying, "Why have you deceived me? For you are Saul!"

 

Read the next verse carefully; Saul asked ‘what did you see?’ Look at the answer ‘Gods ascending out of the earth’ [God is the correct translation, as only one came up.]

 

1Sa 28:13  And the king said to her, "Do not be afraid. What did you see?" And the woman said to Saul, "I saw a spirit ascending out of the earth."

 

Saul then asked ‘what form is this God in?’ The answer is ‘the form of Samuel.’

 

1Sa 28:14  So he said to her, "What is his form?" And she said, "An old man is coming up, and he is covered with a mantle." And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground and bowed down.

 

When read carefully; the answer is clear. A God comes out of the earth in the form of Samuel. This God is one of the children of the devil who lives in Hades. Samuel’s spirit is in heaven, it is not in hell.

 

The evil God told the truth about what would happen to Saul. He also predicted a terrible fate for Saul, which caused the king to collapse. He revealed that Saul and Saul’s sons were of the devil's seed and would soon be in hell with the evil God.

 

1Sa 28:19  Moreover the LORD will also deliver Israel with you into the hand of the Philistines. And tomorrow you and your sons will be with me. The LORD will also deliver the army of Israel into the hand of the Philistines."

1Sa 28:20  Immediately Saul fell full length on the ground, and was dreadfully afraid because of the words of Samuel. And there was no strength in him, for he had eaten no food all day or all night.

 

King Saul and his sons are of the devil's seed and will be eventually slain by God the Father. What a terrible thing to find out about ones self.

 

Isa 14:21  Prepare slaughter for his children Because of the iniquity of their fathers, Lest they rise up and possess the land, And fill the face of the world with cities."

 

The true account of Samuel, and the witch of Endor, gives a chilling insight to what is in store for mankind at the end time. The power and deception of the descendants of God the Father will deceive most of this world.

 

Mat 24:24  For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

 

Rev 17:8  The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
