“THE RESIDENTS OF ENDOR”
Text: Psalm 16:1-end
Working Scripture :- 1Samuel 28:1-7
In 1 Cor 15:45,
The Bible opens our eyes to something all are missing:
-“What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later”.
It’s the truth concerning many Christians who makes choices,steps,decisions.
The spiritual does not come first to many,
Every man’s thinking goes to the wrong life,wrong Choices and their flesh needs.
We tend to choose first the wicked ones, steps,easy ways.
The natural does not allow the spiritual to reign.
It suffocates the spiritual.
Many do not want anything to do with whatever makes them go extra miles.
Today am looking at those who choosed Cain’s lifestyle instead of Abel’s.
Let us compare salient truth of the bible.
Which came first beloved,
Spiritual or Natural in these scenarios:
Exodus 2:11-12 and Exo 3:10
The first Mosses or the latter Mosses.
Which step is flesh,which is spiritual
2-Adams two children
Which lifestyle is Spiritual?
Ishmael or Isaac,
Which of them is born by flesh decision?
Esau and Jacob
Ps 107 says men prefers to live in the valley of death, Endor.
And it’s a place not designed for carrier of grace.
Endor is a place of 7 spirits:-
Ps 23:4 says though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
He did not say, living in the valley of death.
Meaning problems and challenges come and go, but not to be a permanent thing.
A woman called her husband,and told him,
‘Our house girl is pregnant,
He said,that’s her business,
She said,I heard you are responsible,
He said,THATS MY BUSINESS,
She said,am packing out,
He said,that’s your own business…
It is my business to show and reveal to you the latest tricks of the enemy of the Gospel
It is your business to listen,be watchful and take HEED.
Leviticus 10:1-2 KJV
 … And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.  And there went out fire from the LORD, and devoured them, and they died before the LORD …
Strange fire in Christianity today,
Vibrating Pastors and prophetess,
All in other to deceive men and women.
DESPERATION AMONG CHRISTIANS?
Many are eager to cut corners.
-Isaiah 31 From vs 1and 3
Sportsmen who end up in Endor of ANABOLID STEROID.
They REIGN,be famous and they end their career in disgrace.
You will not end your journey in shame.
JUDGES 16:4…..THE VALLEY OF DEFEAT.
A contradiction to words of the Psalmist.
Ps 121:1 says,
I will lift up my eyes unto the hills,
Where my helps come from.
Samson ends up in the valley of Sorek,
Evil men/women dwells in valleys,
not MOUNTAIN TOP.
Take a look at the witch of ENDOR,
She lives in the Valley also,
Don’t end up in the valley of defeat.
After King Saul visited this witch,
He and all his children died in the battle field.
I will not end up a laughing stock.
HOW CAN I KNOW IF I AM ON THE WAY TO ENDOR.?
1-Check your friends,are they real,
Are you meeting to pray together or Gossip?
King Saul’s journey to ENDOR did not start one day.
His disobedience (1 Samuel 15:15)
He satisfied the people around him.
He allowed them to take the fat rams,
against Gods commandment.
And the same people show him the way to his downfall
2-Is THAT THING you want is in God’s interest or your interest!
3-Anytime the Love of the World is paramount in a man’s life,it’s a sign of derailment
4-When you start to compare yourself with another person.
WHY IS THE SPIRIT OF ENDOR REIGNING AMONG XTIANS:-
1-Many have ‘Itching Ears’
They don’t know how to wait on The Lord ,
Always asking ‘what is God saying on my situation’.
As long as there are men who want to eat poison,
The production of poison will not stop.
Fake prophets will have a continuous field day as long as you cannot ask the Lord to baptize you with the Holy Ghost and His gifts.
Heaven warns many daily,
In dream,vision of the night,messages,
But they don’t listen,they prefers to be ‘Appreciated’.
The instruction is clear
What happens later(vs 15)
Is God delighted in your offerings?YES, but,
ONLY IN THOSE OFFERINGS THAT ARE NOT POLLUTED.
3-Avoiding Spiritual works.
At the slightest excuse,you avoid spiritual duties,
Pastor can you fast for me,
Can you do night vigil for me.
be contended with your lack Of spiritual powers.
Don’t replace the Zeal to acquire spiritual powers with WORLDLY AND MATERIAL THINGS.
Ephesians 5:14(NLT )
“Awake thou that sleepeth,
Arise from the dead,and Christ shall give light”
You have the light now,awake,and follow the light.
Clear away all the eggs of laziness in your life.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE WHO ENDS UP IN ENDOR:-
1-Fails woefully(Psalm 37:37-38)
2-Desolation steps in(Psalm 34:21)
3-Shame and Destruction(Psalm 35:4&8)
4-A Reproach(Psalm 79:12,Ezekiel 36:16-19)
Saul perished with his 3 children .
Charismatic in everything.
They have Charisma BUT the glory has departed.
1Sam 16:5-7(Keeping up appearance)
7-IMITATION SETS IN.
They still believe they have the right garment to be in the presence of God,but it is an imitated,copied garment.
A time is coming when the wheat will be separated from the tares,in the name of Jesus.
Am praying for someone,
You will not end up a laughing stock in the name of Jesus.
Am praying for someone,
As The Lord surrounds Zion,May the angels of The Lord encompass your lives in Jesus name.
WHAT TO DO:-
If you don’t want to end up in disgrace,
You too can be better than those you are seeking for help.
You can do it beloved.
Mosses said,”Would God that all the Lords people were prophets?
Eldad and Medad catch the fire,and they too prophecy.
Vs 25,The Lord came down and took from Mosses some of the Spirit of God on him and gave it to the 70 elders and they prophecied.
1-MOTTO(Daily guidance )
-No bible reading,no breakfast(Job 23:12)
-No Scripture,no sleep.
Maturity in Christ is not the Passage of Time .
It’s not how long you have been a Christian,
But the results of how you deal with TRIALS you are facing.
-The result of getting closer to Him.
Let heaven supply you with all spiritual gift.
Many seeks diviners with their money,
Not knowing that they are writing a KORAH’s letter of defeat(Numbers 16)
3-Have Faith and Contentment.
Your due season is here today.
The earth is full of Gods riches
4-Have “WHY ,WHY, FORMULAR”.
From asking comes reasoning.
Why am I in this situation?
Why did God gave me this child?
Why am I in Sweden?
Why am I married?
WHERE THERE IS A PURPOSE,
THERE IS A FUTURE.
You will not end your lives in Endor.
It’s Soul searching time:
Jonah was sent to Nineveh,
He choosed the easy way,
He chooses TARSHISH .
Where souls are being merchandise.
Lot chooses the plains of Sodom
He ends up loosing his wife and ALL he laboured for.
Don’t merchandise your Glory.
Don’t end up with the witches and wizards of ENDOR
