The End Of An Era

‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭31:5‭-‬6‬ ‭KJV‬‬ [5] And when his armourbearer saw that Saul was dead, he fell likewise upon his sword, and died with him. [6] So Saul died, and his three sons, and his armourbearer, and all his men, that same day together.

What an end to a whole dynasty. What an end! Prov.23:18 accepts that there’s an end indeed for everyone, but it is tragic when expectations are cut off, almost no offsprings left. It took a covenant to discover Jonathan’s son. No one in Saul’s family became king after that. Be careful when you’re given responsibility by God. Notice that his armourbearer died with him. The armourbearer should have continued the master’s tradition, but this one died with the master. David qualified to carry on the tradition because he was once an armourbearer to Saul. Well, that’s the end of Saul. We are better placed in the new covenant to do better, based upon better promises. Gods mercies in the new covenant gives us better opportunities to make it. Saul’s era ended, but there’s going to be another dynasty. Get ready for Davidic era. This man lived in the old testament but enjoyed new testament blessings. That will be be your testimony.
