GOD HAS NEVER CHOSE A POSITION OVER THE TRUTH.
KING SAUL…He had the privilege to be King of Israel… but was “NEVER” prepared or was ready for true leadership to be king. He was driven by his emotional issues of wanting to appear as being king with a slew of emotional mental health issues. Ego, insecurities, jealousy, pride and lack of common sense…
In actuality … King Saul “NEVER” TRUSTED IN GOD!
He was definitely a psychotic King … King Saul, lacked, discipline, structure and fail to acknowledge the truth… He was never right on clear judgment during basic decision-making because he lack God focus. And because he could never get his act together… God took away his favor over his life…(Read I Samuel Chapters 8-31)
Death and destruction came because King Saul disobeyed God by lying about his true spirituality. In fact, who he really was surfaced many times when he had to deal with the onslaught of situations . God helped him out of many situations but King Saul never learned his lessons.
King Saul, and his jealousy for David pushed him totally into overdrive!!! You see, King Saul tried to murder David, and David sincerely loved King Saul and had plenty opportunities to kill him and exposed him but he remained faithful to him. Even when King Saul always plotted and placed bounty on David. God had prepared David to deal with King Saul.
Yet, King Saul’s rages or temper tantrums to power trip over just about nothing . And because he loved to be adored and put to sleep about the real concerns of the people. He had to be pumped and primed in order for his monsters to lie low until he could PREPARE THIS MASKS FOR THE DAY …It depends on who was watching.
King Saul’s agendas became greater than God’s obedience. God doesn’t keep any of us in a safety net and surrounded with people who co-signs on lies and deceptions. He pushes us into uncharted waters at times it’s not a luxurious life. It’s not a place of being and feeling empowered. It’s a place that births the truth and who we are when it falls apart.
It is often a desert in which we either live or die. What comfortability there is when we have to step out to be alone. Yet, the fear of being alone may cause many to make the wrong decisions and act like God is respecting where you are. A LIE… And out of fear we stay in positions and in climates that we think allows us to flourish in fact it hinders and bring devastation and even death.
The devil will give out stuff with ease but it’s the harvest that will be the most difficult. Many are not prepared when God tells us to do things that doesn’t make sense to the masses and because we have done something for years doesn’t mean God has anything to do with it.
There are many fraudulent, leaders fail to focus on how much they have screwed the heads of people and made a nest with manipulations to stay focused on them instead of God. I am personally appalled at the lack of actions to get rid of the insults to God! A sad day when leaders know the wrong and fail to make it right with the people and or God. Mishandling the things of God is destroying many ministries world-wide!
Don’t ask where it came from if you are apart of the breeding of unscrupulous behaviors! King Saul leadership reflected who he was as a leader. No matter how much of a man of God he was supposed to be. His heart was wicked and never really sold out to God but appearing as KING INSTEAD OF BEING ONE.
He was the choice of the people but NEVER God. When one always “assumes which is the lowest form of knowledge. All because someone is in a position of leadership he or she is chosen by God. A LIE!
You know people tell lies to themselves for not making the right choices. People orchestrate their own demise and say “well God told me”…God doesn’t go against integrity and this an ongoing battle today in the minds of carnal individuals or the ones who “think” that they could lead people!
King Saul made up his own rules and he died because of it.
Not to mention his huge desire to appear as a Man of God and he clearly lost his desire to be just that. People that may start out doing the will of God seemingly get suckered in bowing down to material things including their egos. What glory is God getting if you are the star of the show? The worst enemy in the world is the man in the mirror.
If someone claims that they have this undying love for being a man or woman or GOD you consider these things….
God isn’t abusing his people on the watches of others that rides out on cloaks of religion. If one is sincerely called by God, you shouldn’t have to beg or request that they look for the truth and or act like they possess it.
Often time lies are told in the name of God because of man’s opinion or his or her indecisiveness to truly commit to being the truth!
I am a serious advocate for love. It’s amazing who so many confuse lust for love. When you love you commit your life to love. Lust and thirst to be seen or heard isn’t God. One doesn’t every have to boast or burst their way into the lives of anyone especially with filtered truths.
How can you say you are doing the will of God without being the truth and telling the truth? God isn’t into lies but transparency and accountability… If you abuse God’s love you will be a disservice to others and yourself… The harvest to disobedience is more injustices, more lawlessness, more rebellion and compromise. I am not confused when people who ride on the ministry thing. Personally it’s disgusting to know that you have even make a declaration of reminding people who God isn’t bipolar or have selective amnesia to wrong doing.
If only you could see just how untrustworthy they are with the lies of God’s people. fraudulent is not different in ministry. Even sinners can spot when something is off inside the life of the church. People see your witness behind closed doors and some find it typically normal to represent every day evil in the cloak of being ministers of the gospel…
King Saul’s , final days were full of more depression not to mention DEATH… His lack of controlling others instead of stepping out and being separated… He consulted with the witch of Endor instead of trusting the Prophet of God… Where is the real faith when you prefer hearing what you want to hear instead of maturing and growing where God wants you to be.
Which tells me a lot about the leaders of today who act just like King Saul …It was no mistake that King Saul embraced messiness. His bad decision cost him the life of his three sons… He himself died on a sword because of it!

I have shared this story in ministry a lot because we are seriously face with this onslaught of people with evil intent that can be often ignored as just frivolous behavior. There is great danger when one ignore the odd behaviors that is coming in church today.
Let me be first to tell you a lot of assistance is needed dealing with people who have been allowed to disruptive actions and interrupt with demonic outbursts! Why the church can’t come to grips with reality is beyond me. I don’t have to be therapist to discern when someone is missing a beat! I don’t need to pray about it…We need to address the issues!
We almost need Ushers to give out psychotropic medication on every pew as necessary!
As a teenager soon as my mom got off of work on Friday’s I would have to come to grandmother’s house to go choir rehearsal and to church.
Well, on one particular Friday, my mother told me she would drop me off on this particular Saturday, to introduce me to one of my cousin’s that would be staying with my grandmother for a little while. For the oddest reasons, my mother wanted to see my inner actions with her cousin. I was introduced and they said she was a Christian woman. I took one look at her and I told my mother I am uncomfortable with her. I told my mother her mental health isn’t good. I didn’t want to sleep in the same room with her and I told my grandmother there is something off about her behavior.
The response…. Oh well, she is a little odd but she is harmless. she is a Christian woman who loves God and so on. I didn’t care how much she loved God she was disturbed.
I told my mother something is off and I want to go home. My mother said it’s going to be alright let’s do this trial run and then if you are not comfortable I will have see what she can do.
I woke up lying next to my aunt…Who looked at me as if she was afraid….My cousin Angie was under the bed collecting and stripping paper bags and rolling her hair with paper. Talking to someone who neither one of us could see. Oh my GOD!!! I sat up in the bed and I looked at her.
I watched her practically all night! I was exhausted going to Sunday School the next day… I shared my horrible night when my mother came after church to take me home. I knew I wasn’t coming back to my grandmother’s house until she gets rid of the ‘creepy cousin” . It hit the fan!
My cousin Angie started doing more bizarre things, so my mother’s other sister tried to intervene. Angie snapped!
One situation led to another. It wasn’t long before Angie got be too much and my grandmother had to let her go!
After being put out…My cousin Angie tried to murder someone with a pair of scissors by stabbing them repeatedly in the back… She was charged with attempted murder! Last they shared is that the family knew of her history to be violent but kept it a secret. I have no idea why we would like to pretend someone isn’t mentally imbalanced!
Many fear of offending someone but I am quick to let you know … when someone who has issues makes me uncomfortable. The tally is getting higher in the church! Too much is let go and in all honestly people need some kind of security and sensitivity training when the “creepy” cousins sit on the pews.
It just doesn’t stop here!
The deception is when we don’t acknowledge that something is indecent sitting among us. There is threat and we should take precautions! I don’t dismiss craziness even in church. Sadly, we are subject to the devils in the church more actively seeking God. You have to stay on guard than most now days!
The foolishness of believing that threats can’t quickly turn into danger! We have no idea or anyone’s intentions when the time bomb will go off in their heads but I wont be ignoring that the bomb is ticking!
I have no idea why people try to pretend that they are comfortable sitting next to someone who gives you the creeps! OH SWEET GOD… It has gotten so out of control and people would like to pretend that all of this is normal…but it’s not!
Too many of them may not be diagnosed with any mental illness yet, you can sense that they are on something! But you don’t have to be a psychiatrist to know when someone gives them a bad vibe. How can you really concentrate or be safe when we are living the days of watching people more than ever? God might be in the building but we better exercise better judgment when too many of them are drawn to the church and don’t mind murdering!
They are in the workplace and you sense that they are off…and the unthinkable happens! This is happening too frequently everywhere missing the signs! Some people might not give a sign but there is something off…that the church continues to ignore. Ignoring someone who is off wont make them less off. There has to be some sensible checks and balances when many of us are subject to unnecessary evil. Whether someone doesn’t bother anyone there behavior must be monitored!
