25. Letters from God (fictional letters based on people in the Bible) Dear David (regarding Saul)

Dear David,

     You are My dearly loved. You were victorious over Goliath and you defeated him as I said you would. Now you are a married man. Your wife Michal does love you. Saul does not, and he is seeking you to take your life. You must go into hiding. Saul is not the man he once was and has turned away from Me. He is jealous of you because of your victories in battle and that his son and the people love you. He is also jealous because he lost the favor you now have. His anger towards you grows because he knows you have My favor. I must warn you that while you are playing music to soothe him, that he will take his spear and try to kill you. He will miss and the spear will go into the wall.

     Saul will make you a captain in his army. You will do your job well and behave with wisdom that I will give to you. He will see that you are a good man and soldier. He will hear the praises of the people for you and he will grow more jealous. The reason that he gave his daughter Michal to be your wife was because he learned that she loves you. He will use this as a way to plan your death. He will not ask for a dowry, but instead he will ask for you a hundred foreskins of the Philistines. He is hoping that you will die in battle. Do not fear for you will defeat 200 Philistines doubling what was requested of you. Then you will marry Michal.

     When Jonathan learns of his father’s plans to kill you, he will come to warn you of his father’s plan. Listen to him and do what he says. He is a true friend and he will not betray you. He will speak to his father and tell Saul that he is wrong to harm you in any way since you had done nothing to wrong him. This will calm Saul for a while, and he will not harm you for a short time. However when the next battle does come with the Philistines, he will once again seek to kill you. You will be playing music and he will take his spear to kill you for the second time. He will fail and you will have to escape and go into hiding again. Your wife Michal will help you, and you will then find Samuel in Ramah. You will tell him of what Saul has done, and there will be prophets who will speak to Saul’s messengers who will come for you. They will be truthful and say yes you are with Samuel in Naioth in Ramah. I will be with you. So do not be afraid for your life.

     You will leave Naioth, and find Jonathan. You will talk and make plans to see if Saul still wants you dead. Your friend will be faithful to you. He will see the rage in his father’s eyes against you. Saul will throw the javelin at Jonathan. This will confirm to him that his father truly wants you dead. He will warn you and you will have to go flee. You will have four hundred men with you and I will keep you safe from harm.

     Remember My words to you and I will write again soon to tell you more. For now do as you are instructed and you will live. I am always with you.


Your God
