1 Samuel 15
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Saul Disobeys the Lord
15 One day, Samuel told Saul:
The Lord had me choose you to be king of his people, Israel. Now listen to this message from the Lord: 2 “When the Israelites were on their way out of Egypt, the nation of Amalek attacked them. I am the Lord All-Powerful, and now I am going to make Amalek pay!
3 “Go and attack the Amalekites! Destroy them and all their possessions. Don’t have any pity. Kill their men, women, children, and even their babies. Slaughter their cattle, sheep, camels, and donkeys.”
4 Saul sent messengers who told every town and village to send men to join the army at Telaim. There were two hundred ten thousand troops in all, and ten thousand of these were from Judah. Saul organized them, 5 then led them to a valley near one of the towns in[a]Amalek, where they got ready to make a surprise attack. 6 Some Kenites lived nearby, and Saul told them, “Your people were kind to our nation when we left Egypt, and I don’t want you to get killed when I wipe out the Amalekites. Leave here and stay away from them.”
The Kenites left, 7 and Saul attacked the Amalekites from Havilah[b] to Shur, which is just east of Egypt. 8 Every Amalekite was killed except King Agag. 9 Saul and his army let Agag live, and they also spared the best sheep and cattle. They didn’t want to destroy anything of value, so they only killed the animals that were worthless or weak.[c]
The Lord Rejects Saul
10 The Lord told Samuel, 11 “Saul has stopped obeying me, and I’m sorry that I made him king.”
Samuel was angry, and he cried out in prayer to the Lord all night. 12 Early the next morning he went to talk with Saul. Someone told him, “Saul went to Carmel, where he had a monument built so everyone would remember his victory. Then he left for Gilgal.”
13 Samuel finally caught up with Saul,[d] and Saul told him, “I hope the Lord will bless you! I have done what the Lord told me.”
14 “Then why,” Samuel asked, “do I hear sheep and cattle?”
15 “The army took them from the Amalekites,” Saul explained. “They kept the best sheep and cattle, so they could sacrifice them to the Lord your God. But we destroyed everything else.”
16 “Stop!” Samuel said. “Let me tell you what the Lord told me last night.”
“All right,” Saul answered.
17 Samuel continued, “You may not think you’re very important, but the Lord chose you to be king, and you are in charge of the tribes of Israel. 18 When the Lord sent you on this mission, he told you to wipe out those worthless Amalekites. 19 Why didn’t you listen to the Lord? Why did you keep the animals and make him angry?”
20 “But I did listen to the Lord!” Saul answered. “He sent me on a mission, and I went. I captured King Agag and destroyed his nation. 21 All the animals were going to be destroyed[e]anyway. That’s why the army brought the best sheep and cattle to Gilgal as sacrifices to theLord your God.”
22 “Tell me,” Samuel said. “Does the Lord really want sacrifices and offerings? No! He doesn’t want your sacrifices. He wants you to obey him. 23 Rebelling against God or disobeying him because you are proud is just as bad as worshiping idols or asking them for advice. You refused to do what God told you, so God has decided that you can’t be king.”
24 “I have sinned,” Saul admitted. “I disobeyed both you and the Lord. I was afraid of the army, and I listened to them instead. 25 Please forgive me and come back with me so I can worship the Lord.”
26 “No!” Samuel replied, “You disobeyed the Lord, and I won’t go back with you. Now the Lordhas said that you can’t be king of Israel any longer.”
27 As Samuel turned to go, Saul grabbed the edge of Samuel’s robe. It tore! 28 Samuel said, “The Lord has torn the kingdom of Israel away from you today, and he will give it to someone who is better than you. 29 Besides, the eternal[f] God of Israel isn’t a human being. He doesn’t tell lies or change his mind.”
30 Saul said, “I did sin, but please honor me in front of the leaders of the army and the people of Israel. Come back with me, so I can worship the Lord your God.”
31 Samuel followed Saul back, and Saul worshiped the Lord. 32 Then Samuel shouted, “Bring me King Agag of Amalek!”
33 But Samuel said, “Agag, you have snatched children from their mothers’ arms and killed them. Now your mother will be without children.” Then Samuel chopped Agag to pieces at the place of worship in Gilgal.
34 Samuel went home to Ramah, and Saul returned to his home in Gibeah. 35 Even though Samuel felt sad about Saul, Samuel never saw him again.
The Lord Chooses David To Be King
The Lord was sorry he had made Saul the king of Israel.

War-of-the-worlds-1953 – What good is a human race if it is run by a fraternity of International males that fail to see the intelligence level in women as a resources instead of being intimidated by it?
ORSON WELL’S WAR OF THE WORLDS is basically a movie about the extermination of the Earth’s human race. Like a pogrom run on all human’s without Mercy. The Logic of this film bothers me, but why would would an advanced Race of beings do such a thing.
Survival of the fittest right?
The only conclusion I have is that they probably mastered heterosexuality and earned the right to judge a hopeless civilization without mercy and led by a heterosexual despot and like in the Bible, God said to let not one man, woman or even
What good is a male race who lays with another male in a time of crises and war with women dying as well as men and many as human sacrifices are being performed just so they can get keep their Mason homosexual perverted Lust going? This is a theme that is understood and the main theme behind Alien extermination films of the human race led by a hierarchy of fallen homosexual men.
What good is a male race that makes homosexuals by Gay bashing and chemically raping heterosexual men and making Gay bashing such a crime in the news. Over these last 50 or so years There was more than 95% Mason and Greek Fraternal Gay Bashing of Heterosexual men and boys than.
The irony is the Male heterosexual Gay Rights movement to adopt and secure access to boys. This Twilight Zone Movie is called “to Serve Man” it is about an alien race that has developed a taste for earth men’s flesh. It was written by a great Heterosexual Man who may have gotten hazed. Rod Sterling may he reincarnate well.
In a Democracy witching your Boy Scouts at all levels of government is a priority. This is the reason many people who worked in all levels of Intelligence and law enforcement that never belonged to a Fraternity and never studied or dedicated themselves to the Etiology of words such as I did as a young man –most notable a Strong’s Concordance– were susceptible to being deceived by Fraternity men as to the meaning of Democracy after it was leaked out.
The most unfortunate part of Democracy is –however– the impeding of justice, the death venues and the pacts with organized crime not to mention the International Mason Syndicate, The World Bank, International Monetary Fund IMF and a World Class European Mason Mafia that separates itself from standard Mafias by Trillions of dollars, were the makers of arms and weapons of mass destruction and led by Teutonic Mason Wagner Ideologists who need more understanding of being born again or reincarnation and that they will not always be white.
A good and loving God will incarnate us in all colors and while alive –not let us remember when we were once black or even Aztecs. Reincarnation into other colors is a purposeful strategy of the Holy Spirit and about about healing us from a false doctrine of prejudice imbued in white incarnations by Fallen Angels that wish to recuperate their beauty and carried through white blood lines now for along time. If I -the greatest of your whites– and other archangels can handle being Latin, or Chinese so can you. Pray to the Holy Spirit for help that you might be healed.
Fight your prejudice against people of other colors. Fight your sexual prejudice of women if you are a man that likes men and boys and acts friendly with women just to be accepted by the female race. Why not try going the extra mile with women instead of expect instant sex with them and putting them on the spot to heal you of your homosexuality.
