1 Samuel 1:1
What a beautiful way for God to usher in the end of time of judges .... to lead up to the birth of Samuel, who even as the smallest child so tuned in to God that he heard His voice and responded. To capture the hidden beauty, look closely at itís backdrop.
Ramathaim Zophim ... double height of the watchers
Ephraim... ... double fruit
Elkanah ... ... God has possessed
Jeroham ... compassionate
Elihu ... He is my God
These opening words could just as easily read ... Now there was a certain man from the double height of the watchers, from the mountains of double-fruit. His name was God Has Possessed, and he was a son of Compassion, an off-spring of He Is My God ...
What incredible heritage ... what a story, woven deep within the telling ... what a promise to live out! And itís mine. Mine is the portion of double-fruit, harvested from a land cared for, from a land vigilantly tended through a focus on things above. Mine that blessed portion that only comes from keeping out the things of this world just waiting to seed my land with the tares of its cares and worries, if ever I drop my guard and fail to keep a close eye on my kingdom possession.
And my identity? Isnít it truly God-Has-Possessed? For indeed I am His possession, redeemed with the scarlet flow from Heavenís Own veins. A flow spilling forth upon me from Compassionís own heart. Hallelujah, He Is My God!
