1 SAMUEL 16:14

“BUT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DEPARTED FROM SAUL AND AN EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LORD TROUBLED HIM. v. 23 AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN THE EVIL SPIRIT FROM GOD WAS UPON SAUL, THAT DAVID TOOK A HARP, AND PLAYED WITH HIS HANDS SO SAUL WAS REFRESHED AND WAS WELL, AND THE EVIL SPIRIT DEPARTED FROM HIM.?

HERE WE FIND SAUL, A PREVIOUS KING, TORMENTED BY SPIRITS THAT GOD SENT TOWARDS HIM. ONCE YOU DON’T HAVE THE LORD’S SPIRIT TO BE WITH YOU, IT’S LIKE THE PLANET EARTH HAVING NO OZONE LAYER. LIKE A HOME HAVING OPENINGS FOR WINDOWS, BUT HAVING NO WINDOWS. THINGS CAN COME IN AND OUT AS THEY PLEASE, CAUSING

DESTRUCTION ALONG THE WAY. SAUL HAD NO COVERING PROTECTING HIM FORM EVIL, YET, HE KNEW THAT HE NEEDED SOME TYPE OF CELESTIAL MUSIC, SOME TYPE OF HEAVENLY OCCURRENCE TO BE AROUND HIM SO THAT HE WOULD FEEL PEACE OR BE AT EASE. THE SAME WAY YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF IN A SITUATION OF HAVING A PAIN IN YOUR CHEST, FOR EXAMPLE, AND MANY TIMES YOU CAN PRAY FOR

YOURSELF, BUT IT IS NOT UNTIL ANOTHER PERSON SUCH AS A

PREACHER, A PASTOR, OR SOMEONE ELSE PRAYS FOR YOU THAT YOU FEEL THE SATISFACTION THAT YOU WILL BE ALL RIGHT. SAUL WAS IN A NEED OF THE LORD’S SPIRIT IN HIS LIFE AND HE COMMANDED ONE OF HIS SERVANTS TO GO FIND SOMEONE WHO WOULD KNOW HOW TO PLAY THE HARP SO THAT HE WOULD PLAY IT WHEN THE SPIRITS SENT FROM GOD,

NOT OF GOD, BUT SENT FROM GOD WOULD COME AND TORMENT HIM. AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM, THE SERVANTS REMEMBERED OF THIS LITLE SHEPHARD BOY WHO HAD FOUGHT WITH A BEAR, A LION, AND HAD DEFEATED THIS LITTLE BIG GIANT, AND OF WHICH THEY KNEW WAS FULL OF THE POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST, AND THEY SUGGESTED BRINGING THIS GUY NAMED DAVID. WOULDN’T IT BE GREAT TO BE KNOWN FOR BEING ACCOMPANIED BY VICTORIES? I MEAN, NOT JUST ONCE OR TWICE, BUT EVERYWHERE YOU GO? LORD, USE US FOR YOU... HOLY GOD, EVERYTIME SAUL WAS BEING TORMENTED, DAVID WOULD BE CALLED FORTH TO PLAY HIS HARP, AND SAUL WOULD BE AT EASE BECAUSE THE SPIRITS WOULD DEPART AS HE PLAYED. VERSE 21 STATES: “AND DAVID CAME TO SAUL AND STOOD BEFORE HIM: AND HE LOVED HIM GREATLY AND HE BECAME HIS ARMORBEARER." AN ARMORBEARER IS SOMETHING LIKE A BODY GUARD; A SIDEKICK. SAUL KNEW THAT ALL HE NEEDED TO DO WAS CALL DAVID TO PLAY HIS HOLY GHOST ANOINTED INSTRUMENT WHEN THERE WAS "DANGER" BECAUSE DAVID HAD THE POWER AND AUTHORITY IN CHRIST TO CAST THESE DEVILS OUT. QUITE BRIEFLY ASK YOURSELF SOMETHING AT THIS MOMENT, "AM I SAUL OR AM I DAVID?" DO YOU HAVE TO CALL PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR YOU OR ARE YOU CALLED BY PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR THEM? DO YOU HEAR IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, “MY MOTHER IS DYING, LET’S CALL A DOCTOR!? THEN SOMEONE SAYS, “NO, CALL SISTER BARTELLI TO COME RPAY FOR HER SO THAT SHE CAN BE RESTORED PHYSICALLY AND SPIRITUALLY," OR DO YOU HEAR, "CALL SISTER BARTELLI SO SHE CAN COME PRAY,AND THEN SOMEONE INTERRUPTS BY SAYING, “NOMBRE, SHE NEEDS MORE PRAYER HERSELF THAN MY DIEING MOTHER!" ARE YOU BEING A DAVID IN SCHOOL AND HEAR ALL OF A SUDDEN, “ARTIE FLORES, WE NEED YOU IN THE "C" BUILDING. SOMEONE NEEDS TO BE DELIVERED," OR DO YOU HEAR, “ATTENTION TEACHERS AND STUDENTS, THERE IS A DEMON POSSESED PERSON IN "C" HALL, SO WE URGE YOU TO STAY IN YOUR ROOMS AND DON’T COME OUT BECAUSE THE SPIRITS MAY GET INT YOU."
