In this final teaching from the Tragedy of King Saul series, Pastor Whaley follows Saul to his prophesied end and the tragedy becomes complete.  Even in death, we learn the devastating wages of sin and how it impacts the kingdom of God and those with whom we share life.  But, it doesn't have to be this way.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 13, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

The tragedy of King Saul is almost complete, but there is one final indignity - the secret meeting with the witch at Endor.  Pastor Whaley takes a look at this ignominious moment to find spiritual truth for the New Testament believer.  Rather than seeking to make a deal with devil, we are called to covenant relationship with God through Jesus Christ, who stands in the way of our sin and nature.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 6, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Saul continues his downward spiritual spiral in this latest sermon from the Tragedy of King Saul series.  King Saul is unrecognizable to his former self, to his former potential.  Pastor Whaley shows how a life determined to be selfish will fall inexorably toward spiritual madness and that same sin will spiritually disfigure.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, February 28, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Continuing in the Tragedy of King Saul series, Pastor Whaley examines the spiral of envy that encompasses King Saul in I Samuel 18.  Three words from this passage measure Saul's descent into the spiral.  It begins with suspicion, transforms into fear, which manifests in dread.  Envy can do the same in us.  This message was delivered on Sunday, February 21, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.

When Saul is commanded by the Lord to utterly destroy the Amalekites, he decides that he knows better what to do and spares King Agag and the choicest of the spoil.  In this sermon from The Tragedy of King Saul, Pastor Greg examines the difficult command of God to Saul, Saul's disobedience to God's command, and what we can learn from the episode in this ongoing tragedy that is the Kingdom of Saul.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 31, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

The tragedy of King Saul is compounded when we look at the first mention of Saul's son Jonathan.  The Lord delivered unto Jonathan a great victory in battle but Saul ruined it by making a rash oath placing the Israelites under an unbearable burden.  We learn unbearable burdens are the burdens we place on ourselves and they often come with unintended consequences.  The only burden we are called to bear is the burden of grace through Christ.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 24, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Continuing on our journey with King Saul, Pastor Greg takes us to Saul's unlawful sacrifice in I Samuel 13:11-14.  Through this experience we learn from Saul that God's law has value and worth in our lives.  It is not something to be swept aside or invalidated by our lethargy.  As such, the spiritual is always to be preferred to the practical.  God's work in us is always more important that our work for ourselves.  Finally, we are reminded God is always seeking people after his own heart.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 17, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

The people of God demanded a king in order to be like the other nations.  God gave them what they wanted in spite of their rejection of Him.  God gave them Saul, a man whose heart was not after God, but was after the flesh.  And when the time came for Saul to rise to the kingdom, the people found him hiding in the luggage.  In this new sermon series for 2016, we learn three important truths.  If you are intent on having your own way, God will allow you to have it.  True love woos the heart, rather than forcing it.  Second, we see from Saul that with God, it is always about the heart.  Saul chose to follow his flesh rather than the new heart God had given him.  Finally, we learn that we have a choice to rise to the kingdom of God, or we can hide from it like Saul did.  This teaching was given on Sunday, January 10, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
