The Omnipotent God—Example of King Saul

The subject that the Divine Source is omnipresent may produce a baffling paradox. A person subjected to fear, or disbelief will resort back to the one-sided belief that “God” is only love. Fear of the unknown will bind the person in ignorance. Was is it loving of what happened to Pharaoh? No, however the design of the context was the power between the light and the darkness. And, deliberating the truth of the human cycle, individual spirits are placed in the womb and will lived again. What other proof is there that the Almighty Divine Creator is omnipresent, and all energies stem from the Divine Source, form—formless, light—darkness, ego—karma? A mystifying subject, a paradox, bewildering to the point that it requires astuteness. If the position of dogma is affirmative concerning love, Why isn’t the love of the Divine manifested within all individuals and situations among the world?

Love is the strongest quality of the Divine that is personified from choice, it is also a choice for the creation, spirit, or human to act in love—love defining as unselfish, humble, and generous in contrast to greedy, arrogant, and selfishness. Contemplating that the creation is granted choice, would it be reasonable that the Almighty Divine Creator chooses love over selfishness? The context of scripture teaches: the person who ascertains the depth of love, circumcises their heart, rids themselves of all idolatry, acts unselfishly to their fellowman is a prerequisite to experience a close relationship with the Almighty Divine Creator. Therefore, Moses clearly teaches, the person who applies the first two commandments is acting unselfish, in turn, The Almighty Faithful Divine Source will act unselfish, however, it is conditional according to the writings of Moses.

“You shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.” —Exodus chapter 20:3-6

It is the individuals who love the Divine from the heart by keeping the commandments is a prerequisite for receiving Divine love, protection, and direction. Matthew wrote, upon the commandments of Moses, however, highlighting Jesus’ teaching style through a simplistic vocabulary. Judaism, Christianity, and the ignorant trample and stumble over Moses’ writing style through lip service and rituals as a justification.

The apostles, asking Jesus a question, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: ” ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. Take notice of Proverbs chapter 8, written by wise King Solomon,8 – I love those who love me, and those who seek me find. 35 – For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD. 36 – But whoever fails to find me harms himself; all who hate me love death. —Matthew 22:36-40

According to the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures, Divine favor is conditional. Consequently, Divine favor, concerning love and light is not apparent in the world because the whole world, including religion, breaks the first two commandments. Pharaoh worshiped Amun/Ra, including the practice of Idolatry. Through a group, culture, traditions, the laws of a country, or any individually that is breaking the commandments, a deep intimate relationship with the Divine source is devoid—loneliness will predominate upon the individual. Though, Divine direction within the context of the Grand Spirit of the Almighty may still happen, but it is impossible to cultivate a deep relationship if a person is arrogant, greedy, selfish, attached to Idolatry—such as religion, and living under the negativity of the darkness by breaking the commandments. A prime example of one person who lost the favor of the Divine, and experienced misery within his inner spirit is King Saul. Keep in mind the definition—to be/who/to be—and the context of omnipresent.

The record of King Saul was written in the book of First Samuel. The Israelites wanted a king, which was bad in the eyes of the Divine, however, a king was granted and Saul of the tribe of Benjamin was chosen. The story begins in chapter ten, The Almighty displayed to Saul the power of the Divine Spirit, and changed Saul’s heart temporarily, and he even prophesied with the prophets. The Grand Sacred Spirit of the Divine has the power to do anything, which we will fine out within this story.

The Spirit of the LORD will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy with them; and you will be changed into a different person. Once these signs are fulfilled, do whatever your hand finds to do, for God is with you. “Go down ahead of me to Gilgal. I will surely come down to you to sacrifice burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, but you must wait seven days until I come to you and tell you what you are to do. “As Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul’s heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day. When they arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came upon him in power, and he joined in their prophesying. When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, “What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?” —First Samuel 10: 6-11

Closely note that Samuel told King Saul to wait for him to offer the sacrifice before the battle. An impatient, arrogant, fearful person struggles to wait, which is what happened, and King Saul lost the favor of the Divine. The context to analyze is what type of energy the Spirit of the Divine brought upon King Saul during his life of being deprecated because of breaking the commandments concerning the mentality of arrogance? We learned that before King Saul lost the favor of YHWH, the Spirit of YHWH changed his heart temporarily, Now notice what happened after King Saul experienced rejection.

Now the Spirit of the LORD had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD tormented him. Saul’s attendants said to him, “See, an evil spirit from God is tormenting you. Let our lord command his servants here to search for someone who can play the harp. He will play when the evil spirit from God comes upon you, and you will feel better.” —1 Samuel 16:14-16

Take note: the two words “God” are translated from Eloheem which should be plural, translated as “the gods”.

An evil spirit came upon King Saul, and it was from YHWH and the Eloheem. If all energies don’t originate with the Almighty, how is it that an evil spirit tormented King Saul? Consistently, the story continues that King Saul was tormented with an evil spirit from YHWH—The Almighty Divine Source.

Whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would take his harp and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better, and the evil spirit would leave him.—1 Samuel 16:23

The next day an evil spirit from God came forcefully upon Saul. He was prophesying in his house, while David was playing the harp, as he usually did. Saul had a spear in his hand and he hurled it, saying to himself, “I’ll pin David to the wall.” But David eluded him twice. Saul was afraid of David, because the LORD was with David but had left Saul. —1 Samuel 18:10-12

But an evil spirit from the LORD came upon Saul as he was sitting in his house with his spear in his hand. While David was playing the harp. —1 Samuel 19:9

Another fine example was when the Philistines abducted the Ark of the Covenant, and the calamity that YHWH brought upon the people that is recorded in first Samuel chapters four through six. So the question remains, is there anywhere in the Hebrew Scriptures that prove YHWH—The Almighty Divine—is the Grand Source of all things, including the ego and darkness?

The Prophet Isaiah clearly teaches that The Almighty Divine, YHWH, to be/who/to be, is the source of All.

I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me.

I am the LORD, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.

You heavens above, rain down righteousness; let the clouds shower it down. Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness grow with it; I, the LORD, have created it.

Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say,
‘He has no hands’?

Woe to him who says to his father, ‘What have you begotten?’ or to his mother, ‘What have you brought to birth?’

“This is what the LORD says—the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come,
do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands?

It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. — Isaiah 45:5-12

A profound paradox that the Prophet Isaiah is teaching. YHWH brings prosperity and creates calamity; clearly, the creator of the light and of the darkness. Indeed, natural disaster and individual calamity are founded upon karmic bonds. The Grand Sacred Spirit of the Almighty Divine is of justice, which is the reason an individual will receive their karma—virtuous or injurious. The Divine is the context of karmic bonds. The Almighty is omnipresent, therefore, nothing dies; even though—through our human eyes, we observe death to be predominant. All beings of spirit were created for eternity. If the Almighty Creator is omnipresent, how is it that the Creator can seem distant and removed from the creation? Part three explains the answer.
