In this story , [esvignore]1 Samuel 11[/esvignore], we discover Saul farming in obscurity while a wicked and cruel enemy arrives in Israel. In this message we discover the importance of the frank language of the Old Testament, the purpose of the gore and violence of the Bible, and the power of the Lord to use the average, unprepared, ill-equipped person to work mighty purposes.
We make five observations from our text: 1.) The Language of War and Violence; 2.) The Enemy is Real; 3.) Unlikeliest Weapons, Unlikeliest Places; 4.) The Spirit does the Saving; 5.) God’s Victory is Good
