Ghosts and Irony
1 Samuel 28:7
“Then Saul said told his officer, ‘Find me a woman who can talk to the spirits of the dead, I will go to her and find out what is going happen.’”
In the above reading, it’s disguising for King Saul, who initially tried killing all people who spoke to the dead, he then seeks the help of the very witches to conjure up the ghost of Samuel due to the fear and anxiety he was having for the big battle ahead of him. Finally, King Saul gets to talk to prophet Samuel’s ghost; however, the first thing Samuel says, ” Why ae you bothering me?” Contrary to this unfolding, the current church takes a “don’t try this at home,” guiding its followers to this specific Bible verse.
Informative but, Bewildering
“The Nephilim were on earth those days, and also afterwards, when the sons of God went into the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men renown.”
In other translations, “giant” is used in place of Nephilim. They are believed to be the cross-breed between sons of God and daughters of men. Some denominations believe by face value seeing God’s sons as fallen angels, whereas some more conservative understand the same verse as being a marriage out of the faith. The writing comes when the writer of the book of Genesis informs us how the earth had been dominated by evil and thus explained why God wanted to cause a big flood.
Contrast and Betrayal
“But Jael, Herber’s wife, picked up a hummer and a peg and quietly went to him while he lay first asleep, exhausted. She drove the peg through his temple to the ground and he died.”
The author describes the times when Deborah was on reign over Israel as a judge. During this time, Sisera, the Canaanite’s leader, faced betrayal from his friend’s wife, Jael, after running for safety and refuge. It was due to the war that Deborah, under God’s lead, begun against the Canaanites. Jael waits when Sisera is deep asleep and drives a tent’s peg through his ear to the ground killing him.
Laugh and Get an Instant Punishment
2 Kings 2:23-24
“From there Elisha went to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some boys got out of the town and jeered at him, ‘Get out of here baldy!’ They said, ‘Get out of here baldy!’ He turned around, looked at them, and called curse down on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.”
In the above context, Elisha is a no-nonsense prophet of God. He is called baldy by young boys, but he does not hesitate but turns around, looks at them, then unleashes a curse, and immediately the victims receive the punishment for their actions.
“On the first day of the week, we gathered together with local believers to share the Lord’s Supper. Paul was preaching to them, and since he was leaving the next day he kept talking till midnight. The upstairs room where we met was lighted with many flickering lamps. As Paul spoke on and on, a young man named Eutychus sitting by the windowsill, became very drowsy. Finally, he fell sound asleep, and dropped three stories to his death below.”
Though God retrieved the young man’s life through Paul, think of it if dozing off during preaching would be that deadly! It would be bad news to them that doze off during sermons.
