The following is a portion of my journal where I was shown parts of Samuel’s life. The Lord would speak with me and the vision would open as if I was there. It felt as if I was, so I’m not sure. Pray for your own confirmation.
I asked about Samuel, the son of Hannah who was a great prophet to the Israelites. I saw Hannah married to Elkanah the Priest. They were happy, but it became apparent she could not bear children. Her younger sister was given to Elkanah to bear children. Hannah was without child for many years until her prayers were answered by the Lord. I saw a woman in her mid-thirties, lighter hair, praying to God for a miracle. Her miracle was the conception of Samuel. I saw her taking the little child to the temple north of Jerusalem. He was a ginger haired little boy, very cute and mild mannered. The temple was not very extravagant. It had a wall of fabric around it, with a large stone structure. It seemed simpler compared to the Temple of Solomon.
I saw Samuel older, about eight years of age, asleep on a couch in a lounge area near where they lived. Here he was awakened by the Lord and thinking it was Eli (pronounced Eele’) he three times went to him to ask what was wanted. Upon returning to his couch he was given the revelation from the Lord the exact words to tell Eli. It was an announcement that the Lord would remove his family as the custodians of the sacred temple and that they had brought a cursing upon them. Eli was sad, but more depressed than astonished.
I saw a great battle between the Israelites and Philistines. I noticed the Israelites wore light clothing with armor that would drench red in blood during battle. The Philistines wore darker cloth with darker brass armor.
I saw Eli hear of his two-son’s death and the taking of the Ark of the Covenant. He put his head up and began to pray with great cries of anguish as he stepped backward, fell, hitting his head on a stone, and died.
I saw Samuel as an older man, the prophet, and ruler or judge over the people. He was a low key, often quiet person. His hair looked very soft and light. He had a gentle personality, soft spoken. The people desired a king that would give them great prestige among the nations. The Lord instructed Samuel to give them Saul. Saul was what the people wanted. He looked the part, tall, dark, and kingly; but he also was weak in faith and warlike. When Saul failed to follow a commandment of the Lord to kill every person among the Amalekites he was cursed and told that another would be chosen. I asked the Lord why? I saw that the Amalekites and those that were the inhabitants of the city of Jericho were among the giant race of Nephilim. These were an abomination to the Lord. The seed of a mixture of Adamites and seed of men that bread giants, inhabited by evil spirits. Their works were profane and violent. The Lord required that all living amongst them be destroyed. Because Saul failed to follow the Lord’s command, He rescinded his blessing.
