Maybe he can persuade a medium to conjure him up, so that he can speak with him. Saul instructs his servants to find a woman who is a medium. They know of such a woman living at En-Dor. This plan to inquire of a medium has its own set of problems, which we can see from the text. First, God has strictly forbidden the use of mediums. A number of Old Testament texts forbid the presence of mediums and other spiritists in the land of Israel and also forbid the Israelites to consult such persons.

Consider these prohibitions in the Law of Moses:. This is truly amazing. For once, it seems, Saul did something right. Now, in the crunch of an imminent Philistine attack, Saul wishes he could locate a medium and do what the Old Testament law forbade. The biggest obstacle in doing so is his own obedience which removed these people from the land.

Get this: Saul now regrets doing one of the few things he seems to have done right. There is yet a third problem, a logistical one. En-dor is approximately eight miles north of Gilboa, and to get there, Saul has to go around the Philistines. There is a fourth problem: Saul cannot afford to be identified.

Saul dares not be identified by anyone whom he might encounter on the way. A king could, in caution, disguise himself see 1 Kings In addition, Saul does not wish to be recognized by the medium. If she knows who he is she certainly will not agree to conjure up a dead man, knowing it was Saul who put the mediums and spiritists out of the land see verse 9. His solution is to travel by night, disguising himself by his apparel. He will not wear his royal attire on this mission. When Saul arrives at the home of the medium, he gets right to the point.

He first seeks a commitment from the medium that she will conjure up whomever he names. After all, these men are strangers, or so she supposes. Ironically, Saul swears to her by the Lord that she will not be punished for doing what he asks of her verse He then asks the woman to conjure up Samuel for him. She does not need to ask for further clarification.

When the woman sees Samuel, she shrieks. She not only recognizes Samuel, she now recognizes that the one asking her to conjure up Samuel is none other than Saul himself. Saul again assures the woman he will not harm her, and then asks her to describe the person she sees before her.

No wonder she is frightened.

Witch of Endor

Samuel did not tell Saul what he wanted to hear. In fact, Samuel at times feared for his own life, when he did what he knew would infuriate Saul see In chapters 13 and 15, Samuel rebuked Saul for his sins, and told him frankly that he was going to lose his kingdom. In light of these things, what in the world does Saul expect Samuel to say to him now? If he expects anything different because a medium had conjured up Samuel from the dead, Saul is in for a very rude awakening. Saul learns that conjuring up Samuel from the dead is like waking up one of my daughters early in the morning.

It can be like rousing a she-bear. I used to joke about going into the bedroom and poking such a sleepyhead with a stick, without getting too close. Or, he could have said this as a rebuke to Saul, for doing something that he should not have done — conjuring up the spirit of one who is dead.

Saul sounds like a schoolboy, who has just been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and has had his knuckles rapped. He seeks to justify his actions by telling Samuel he is greatly distressed. He adds that the reason is the Philistines are waging war against him and that God has departed from him, answering his inquiries no more. You have to tell me what to do. I know its against the rules, Samuel, but this is an emergency.

Samuel is not impressed. He does not tell Saul what to do. In fact, he rebukes Saul for asking him to do what is impossible. Asking Samuel to speak for God, once God has departed from him, is like asking Balaam to curse the people of God, once God has chosen to bless them. Genesis 2. That he warned him that for transgression he should be deprived of life, and turned again into dust. Genesis That all men are now under the sentence of death, and are both mortal and corruptible.

Daniel ; Job ; 1 Thessalonians ; 1 Corinthians , 18, That the keys of death and hades are not in the hands of familiar spirits, but in those of our Lord Jesus Christ. These facts are certainly sufficient to show that the familiar spirits do not come from the dead themselves, and that they do not, and cannot, bring up any of the dead. Who, then, are the familiar spirits? We need not deny their existence, nor can we without denying the Bible.

Nor should we pronounce it an inexplicable mystery that our dead friends, whose very thoughts have perished, and who sleep quietly in the silent dust, are by them apparently made to speak in so wonderful a manner. There is an agency competent to do this work. That the familiar spirits are the fallen angels will appear from the following facts:- SWE The Scriptures inform us that Satan, who was once an obedient servant of the God of Heaven, long since raised the standard of revolt against him.

John ; 1 John ; Ezekiel That a large body of the angels joined in this revolt.

That these wicked spirits are not now in torment, but they await the day of Judgment, when with wicked men they shall be sent into everlasting fire. Jude 6 ; Matthew ; Revelation 20 ; Matthew ; James That this vast body of fallen angels have been engaged during the whole history of our race in the most mighty efforts to involve mankind in ruin. That hypocrisy, deception, and fraud, have been the chief of the ways in which they have ruined mankind. The Old Testament plainly teaches that the work of the familiar spirits is false, deceitful, and ruinous.

The New Testament shows who they are that deceive, seduce, and ruin, mankind. It is the fallen angels, with Satan at their head. We cannot, therefore, avoid the conclusion that the familiar spirits of the Old Testament are the fallen angels of the New. We need not, therefore, think it strange that the Scriptures warn us so faithfully against seeking knowledge at their hands.

From what cause did witchcraft become universal among the ancient heathen? That witchcraft was universal with the nations that God drove out before Israel, we learn from Deuteronomy But how came these people by this doctrine? Demon worship, i.

And the first principle of this religion is the consciousness of the soul in death. Nor is this doctrine the foundation of heathenism only, with its worship of deified dead men; it is equally the foundation of Romanism with its purgatory, prayers for the dead, worship of the saints, and deification of Mary as queen of Heaven; and of Mohammedanism, with its promise to the bloody men who fight its battles that if killed in battle they shall sup that night in paradise; and of spiritualism, of which the whole stock in trade is the sayings and doings of dead men; and of MODERN ORTHODOXY, which makes death the gate to endless joy, and bestows rewards, and punishments upon the dead without waiting for the resurrection and the Judgment.

Who gave the heathen this first principle of their religion-a principle, by the way, absolutely indispensable to almost every system of false religion? For, instead of worshiping the living God, they worshiped the supposed immortal souls of dead heroes that they believed had now become gods.

Thus we read:- SWE And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor; and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel. Let us read again, and we shall learn what kind of gods these were whose sacrifices the Israelites ate at Baal-peor.

The gods, then, to which these sacrifices were offered, were deified dead men. And they were confirmed in worshiping these dead heroes because they received such wonderful responses, so perfectly characteristic of the men. But they supposed themselves receiving responses from the souls of these dead warriors to whom they thus sacrificed as gods. Paul tells us who really received this worship, and, of course, who returned the responses. Thus he says:- SWE They worshiped dead men in name, and devils in reality.

thearciniega.com/blog/wp-includes/piwylufi/519.php They had no doubt that these departed warriors and kings still lived; for they had manifest and characteristic responses. But who cannot see where these responses come from, or what being it is that has an interest that men should believe in their own present immortality? But who taught the heathen this doctrine that the soul of man did not die, or that men became as gods by dying? Here is the fountain-head of heathen philosophy, and of almost every false system of religion. With this idea established in the minds of men, Satan has been able, by means of witchcraft, to control the world to an unlimited extent.

He sends his evil angels in the name of their dear departed friends most perfectly, he throws them off their guard, and, instilling into their minds the doctrines of devils, leads them captive at his will. To see what kind of morals attend the practice of witchcraft, read and compare Deuteronomy , with Leviticus But as they cannot deceive us if they come in their own name, they have chosen effectual disguise, and so come to us in the very form and manner of our dearest departed friends.

We can understand why Satan has made so great an effort to draw men into the sin of witchcraft; for it gives him control of their minds, and makes their ruin almost certain. And we can see the mercy of God in closing up this pretended avenue to the most wonderful knowledge.

The whole thing is a deception and fraud; and God had fenced up the road with his prohibition, that we may understand it to be a dangerous and fatal thing to travel that way. God is equally merciful in what he commands and in what he prohibits. It was Satan, therefore, with his first great falsehood, that originated the principles and established the practice of witchcraft among mankind. What are we to expect from this great Satanic manifestation in the closing scenes of this dispensation?

That modern spiritualism is not slandered when represented as a continuation of ancient witchcraft is shown by two facts: 1. The Old Testament shows that the practice of witchcraft in the days of ancient Israel was precisely the same as the work of modern spiritualism. Spiritualists do not deny, but frankly acknowledge, the identity of modern spirit mediums and ancient dealers with familiar spirits. Before we ask what Satan is to do in the final display of his utmost power, let us consider what he has done already in the revival of this mystery of iniquity.

From an obscure beginning in Western New York, some twenty years since, spiritualism has extended itself over the whole earth, and gained a foothold in every district of which we have any knowledge. It is already the religion of many millions of the human family. Its success has been the result of two things. Its wonders; 2. Its doctrines.

Its wonders are the wonders of ancient witchcraft in enabling men to converse with the dead. Its doctrines deserve notice. Among the most important are these:- SWE That the Bible is full of errors, and not worthy of our confidence. That the moral law is of no authority as a standard of moral character. That there is no difference between right and wrong; for whatever is, is right, and no such thing as sin exists.

That there is no need of salvation through Jesus Christ, but every man is his own Christ. That there is no resurrection of the dead, no future judgment, and no final account. That the God of the Old Testament is the spirit of a dead man. That all men compose a part of God; or all men in death become so many separate deities. That the souls of men are immortal, and at death enter a higher sphere. These principles are not always openly avowed in plain terms, but are dealt out as the hearer can bear them. It is probable that, like Mormonism, a large share of the success that attends this wonderful Satanic manifestation is due to its teachings and practices in regard to the seventh commandment.

The morals of ancient witchcraft may be seen by comparing Deuteronomy ; Leviticus Perhaps modern spiritualism cannot be worse; but it is certainly not one degree purer. There are thousands of people now standing in the outer courts of this infernal diabolism, who are comparatively unaware of what exists in its sanctuary. Would to God that they could be warned before they drink deeper of this strong delusion. The future of this system of ruinous delusion and mighty Satanic wonders is given in the prophetic Scriptures. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie; that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

A short space of time in the close of this dispensation bears the dread appellation of the hour of temptation:- SWE The spirits have an important part to act preparatory to the battle of the great day of God Almighty:- SWE For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. The false prophet, out of whose mouth one of the unclean spirits go forth, is the same as the two-horned beast.

This fact gives us a clue to the agency by which the two-horned beast is to perform its astonishing miracles in the coming hour of temptation. At a period of time not very far distant in the future, this mighty Satanic delusion will have absolute control of those who have not made Christ their portion, and his truth their shield and buckler. What is furnished us as a safeguard against this deception? This certainly indicates that when the grand struggle shall arrive, men will be found gathered into just two classes: 1.

Commandment-keepers; 2. If we treat the law of God as Isaiah bids us, we shall not only acknowledge its authority, but we shall have its holy principles written in our hearts. Then we shall be able to appreciate the vileness of this Satanic doctrine, and ever be on our guard against it. Saul learns that conjuring up Samuel from the dead is like waking up one of my daughters early in the morning.

I know its against the rules, Samuel, but this is an emergency. Samuel is not impressed. He does not tell Saul what to do.

In fact, he rebukes Saul for asking him to do what is impossible. Asking Samuel to speak for God, once God has departed from him, is like asking Balaam to curse the people of God, once God has chosen to bless them. Samuel cannot and will not tell Saul what to do. Saul is on his own. But, since Saul has gone to the effort of having him conjured up, Samuel will tell Saul how things are between him and God, and what tomorrow holds. The situation Saul now finds himself in is precisely that which Samuel announced to Saul when he spoke for God in chapters 13 and Samuel, in very concise words, tells Saul what will happen to him and why.

On the following day, God will give Israel, Saul, and his sons over to the Philistines. Saul and his sons will be killed. It certainly is not what Saul hoped to hear. He conjures up a prophet, and he gets one. Even from the grave, Samuel will not change his tune. So he arose from the ground and sat on the bed. Then they arose and went away that night. What happens next is not a very pretty sight. Saul came to the medium at En-dor that night a very fearful man. After what has just happened to Saul, he literally comes unglued. He falls to the ground, paralyzed as though he has been zapped full-power by a stun gun.

In part, this is the result of his having had nothing to eat for some time. In addition, he is fatigued from traveling those eight miles or so from his camp in Gilboa to En-dor. But a good bit of it is due to sheer terror. I can well imagine that by now the medium is getting a little concerned herself and very eager for Saul to be on his way.

The woman now appeals to Saul to listen to her and take her advice. After all, this is the least he can do for her when she has risked her life for him. She pleads with the king to let her fix him something to eat, something to give him strength enough to be on his way. He refuses. His appetite is gone. Like the father of the prodigal son, the medium of En-dor kills and prepares the fatted calf see Luke , 29 , but it is not for a feast of celebration, nor because the prodigal has repented and returned.

It is more like a wake. She slaughters the calf and prepares it, along with some bread. The king eats, and then goes out into the night. It also seems to be a play on the words of John , where we are told that Judas left our Lord and the disciples to consummate his betrayal of our Lord. The next and last day will be even darker. Here is the king of Israel, so weak with hunger and terror he cannot even stand up. He is dressed in a pathetic attempt at disguise, but that also has failed. He is at the house of a medium, seeking to inquire of her.
