"The Sacrifice of the people" (Congress) today in the high place (Capitol Hill) is progressing just as I Samuel 9:12 said. And, the whole world knows who the sacrificial "goat" is.

Samuel, of course, is to bless "the sacrifice" (I Samuel 9:13). That is, the LORD told Samuel to anoint Saul Captain over the people (I Samuel 9:15-16).

Now, after Samuel anoints Saul (I Samuel 10:1), Saul holds his own sacrifice (I Samuel 10:8). Smile!

Saul then is proclaimed King by the people (I Samuel 10:24); but, the children of Belial (the opposition) were not too happy (I Samuel 10:27).

That's when Saul gets his dander up and demands obedience (I Samuel 11:6-7). The people again proclaim Saul King (I Samuel 11:15; 12:13). But, "the King" is still only anointed Captain, a limited or conditional position.

In the second year of Saul's reign as Captain, Saul routes the Philistines (I Samuel 13:1-7). Saul then holds another sacrifice without waiting for Samuel (I Samuel 13:8-10). Even GOD'S Holy Ark will be brought forth (and much more) in Saul's second year (I Samuel 14:18). Nevertheless, at the end of the second year Samuel is instructed to anoint Saul to be King (I Samuel 15:1).

The rest is academic ... it's all up to Saul. And Saul, the first King of the Israelites, prefigures the first King of the Seventh Kingdom.
