(1 Samuel 4: 21)
I have written My own Bill even as you have and my judgment over this nation is ICHABOD.
My glory will be removed from you and I will not hear.
Your enemies shall overtake you, as you have been overtaken by your sins.
They will ravish your households and take away your children, for you have turned to man in a time where you were to call out to Me.
You have casted your vote, and so have I.
The hour has come where all men will know that I AM God.
The hour has come where you will cry out to Me, but I will turn my face away from you in anger, because you sought me not in the time of peace.
I have given you your Saul, and because you have not chosen me to rule over you, you will therefore become slaves of him whom you serve.
But to the righteous that cries out to me day and night I will answer in a time of need, for they have chosen Me. I will protect them for they are Mine.
The whole world will see your derision and will laugh and will ask, “Where is her former glory?” and I will say “ICHABOD!”
1 Samuel 4: 21 – 22
And she named the child Ichabod, saying, “The glory is departed from Israel”: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father in law and her husband.
And she said, “The glory is departed from Israel: for the ark of God is taken.
1 Samuel 8: 6 – 22
But the thing displeased Samuel, when they said, Give us a king to judge us. And Samuel prayed unto the Lord.
And the Lord said unto Samuel, Hearken unto the voice of the people in all that they say unto thee: for they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them.
According to all the worlds which they have done since the day that I brought them up out of Egypt even unto this day, wherewith they have forsaken Me, and served other gods, so do they also unto thee.
Now therefore hearken unto their voice: howbeit yet protest solemnly unto them, and shew them the manner of the king that shall reign over them.
And Samuel told all the words of the LORD unto the people that asked of him a king.
And he said, This will be the manner of the king that shall reign over you: He will take your sons, and appoint them for himself, for his chariots, and to be his horseman; and some shall run before hic chariots.
And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties; and will set them to ear his ground, and to reap his harvest, and to make his instruments of war, and instruments of his chariots.
And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. And he will take your fields, and your vineyards, and your olive yards, even the best of them, and give them to his servants.
And he will take the tenth of your seed, and of your vineyards, and give to his officers and to his servants. And he will take your menservants, and your maidservants, and your goodliest young men, and your asses, and put them to his work.
He will take the tenth of your sheep: and ye shall be his servants.
And ye shall cry out in that day because of your king which ye shall have chosen you; and the LORD will not hear you in that day.
Nevertheless the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us. That we also may be like all the nations: and that our king may judge us; and go out before us, and fight our battles.
And Samuel heard all the words of the people, and he rehearsed them in the ears of the LORD. And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.
