“The Lord Regretted…”

“The Lord Regretted…”

Blessings folk!

Saul went back to worship the Lord.
Samuel followed him.

1Sa 15:31
So Samuel went back following Saul, and Saul worshiped the LORD.

Agag, remember him?, thought all was well.
Saul thought things were “ok”.

1Sa 15:32-35

Then Samuel said, “Bring me Agag, the king of the Amalekites.”
And Agag came to him cheerfully.
And Agag said, “Surely the bitterness of death is past.”

But Samuel said,
“As your sword has made women childless, so shall your mother be childless among women.” And Samuel hewed Agag to pieces before the LORD at Gilgal.

Then Samuel went to Ramah, but Saul went up to his house at Gibeah of Saul.

Samuel did not see Saul again until the day of his death; for Samuel grieved over Saul.
And the LORD regretted that He had made Saul king over Israel.

Agag thought he had cheated death.
He had not.
Samuel did what Saul refused to do…hewed to pieces. Ugh.

Samuel went one way.
Saul another.

Samuel never saw Saul again.
Samuel grieved over Saul.

The Lord regretted that He had made Saul king over Israel.
The Lord “regrets”?
Yes, without sin.
Yes, with omniscience.

Samuel grieved.
The Lord regretted.
We will see.
