Gods OT Strategy (25) - Kingship

Samuel knew that God wanted to be King of Israel, so he was reluctant to give Israel a King when the people demanded it (1 Sam 8). They wanted to be like the surrounding the nations with a human king, but God that a human king would reject his authority and squeeze him out of Israel. Temporary military commanders were a much safer option. The Kingship did not advance God’s strategy on earth.
