Trivia Thursday – Name That Prophet!!

Hey Neighbor!

  • For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king. (1Samuel 15:23)

In the leading scripture above, we read where the Prophet Samuel conveyed a message to King Saul regarding his failure to utterly destroy the Amalekites, as God had clearly commanded.

King Saul had disobeyed God, returning from the victory with spoils from the war, including the best of the Amalekite’s animals and also the Amalekite’s king, Agag…alive and well! 

At this point, God was fed up with Saul and regretted making him king over Israel!!

And now, God was determined to ‘rend’ or ‘tear’ the kingdom out of Saul’s rebellious hands, and to hand the kingship over to David, a mighty man of valor!! 

God had sent forth Samuel the prophet, to communicate one last and final message to the King of Israel!! 

Now after speaking against Saul, Samuel turned to depart and something happened…

Saul reached out to grab Samuel, and out of his desperation, behold….Samuel’s mantle was torn!! 

In response to King Saul’s ‘rending’ of Samuel’s garment, Samuel replied with these prophetic words: 

  • And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbor of thine, that is better than thou.  (1Sa 15:28)

Saul was not the only rebellious king seated on the throne in Israel, as there were many kings after him that also defied God’s commandments, and thus God also ‘rent’ the kingdom from those kings who followed suit.

God often sends forth His ‘spokesperson’ to communicate these prophetic messages. 

In fact, years later, God would once again transfer the kingship from another disobedient king, into the hands of another man of valor…via the prophetic act of, the ‘tearing’ a garment!!

This leads us into today’s Trivia Thursday Question!! 

Now we do realize that Saul had inadvertently torn Samuel’s garment, but God used the symbolism of that one (1) ‘tear,’ to prophetically separate Saul’s tribe from kingship in Israel!!

Now Today’s Prophet was instructed by God to go out into a field, where he was to speak out against the idolatrous King of Israel, but this particular prophet was also instructed by God to ‘tear’ his very own ‘new’ garment into twelve (12) separate pieces!!

Can You Name That Prophet??
