The Samuel Prophecy.
1 Samuel 3. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 And the child Samuel ministered unto the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision.
2 And it came to pass at that time, when Eli was lying down in his place, and his eyes began to wax dim so that he could not see,
3 and ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord where the ark of God was, and Samuel was lying down to sleep,
4 that the Lord called Samuel; and he answered, “Here am I.”
5 And he ran unto Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou called me.” And he said, “I called not; lie down again.” And he went and lay down.
6 And the Lord called yet again, “Samuel.” And Samuel arose and went to Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou didst call me.” And he answered, “I called not, my son; lie down again.”
7 Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, neither was the word of the Lord yet revealed unto him.
8 And the Lord called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli and said, “Here am I, for thou didst call me.” And Eli perceived that the Lord had called the child.
9 Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, “Go, lie down; and it shall be, if He call thee, that thou shalt say, ‘Speak, Lord, for Thy servant heareth.’” So Samuel went and lay down in his place.
10 And the Lord came and stood, and called as at other times, “Samuel, Samuel.” Then Samuel answered, “Speak, for Thy servant heareth.”
11 And the Lord said to Samuel, “Behold, I will do a thing in Israel at which both the ears of every one who heareth it shall tingle.
12 In that day I will perform against Eli all things which I have spoken concerning his house. When I begin, I will also make an end;
13 for I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth, because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.
14 And therefore I have sworn unto the house of Eli that the iniquity of Eli’s house shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering, for ever.”
15 And Samuel lay until the morning, and opened the doors of the house of the Lord. And Samuel feared to show Eli the vision.
16 Then Eli called Samuel and said, “Samuel, my son.” And he answered, “Here am I.”
17 And he said, “What is the thing that the Lord hath said unto thee? I pray thee, hide it not from me. God do so to thee, and more also, if thou hide any word from me of all the things that He said unto thee.”
18 And Samuel told him every whit, and hid nothing from him. And he said, “It is the Lord. Let Him do what seemeth to Him good.”
19 And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground.
20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord.
21 And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh, for the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.
A Special Prayer.
Almighty God, you have given us a land where we are free to read and hear your Word,
confess your name and work together for the extension of your kingdom.
May the liberty given us be continued to our children and our children’s children,
that the power of the gospel may here increase to the blessing of all the nations of the earth and to your eternal glory; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
Psalm 24. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 The earth is the Lord’S, and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein.
2 For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.
3 Who shall ascend onto the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place?
4 He that hath clean hands and a pure heart, who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.
5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 Such is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek Thy face, O God of Jacob. Selah
7 Lift up your heads, O ye gates! And be ye lifted up, ye everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lordmighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O ye gates! Even lift them up, ye everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah
Have a good evening and God bless you.
