MAN’S PERSPECTIVE IS NOT GOD’S PERSPECTIVE— Today Pastor Gabriel Swaggart preaches from 1 Samuel 16:1-2; comparing the church today to the story of the prophet Samuel mourning over the situation before him. The Israelites wanted a king as the other nations, they wanted Saul; but it was never God’s will for Saul to be king. Samuel feared being killed. The Lord said, fill your horn with oil, the Holy Spirit; Samuel obeyed God and anointed David as King. If we give into fear, we will hinder the will of God in our lives. God told Samuel to take a heifer for a sacrifice. The sacrifice always calls the believer to the Cross of Christ. If Samuel had stayed in mourning, he may have missed anointing David. Pastor Gabe says, sometimes what we see, is not what’s going on. Just as was the call for the Israelites, the Holy Spirit is calling man today to the sacrifice, the Cross.
