The phrase, “love me” occurs nine times in the Bible.  This first time it occurs is in the account of Jacob and his wives.

“And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.” – Genesis 29:31 (KJV)

True Repentance?

By Mike | March 31, 2017

When Samuel died, Saul took an action to make right with God.  He put away those with a familiar spirit (spirit guides) and the wizards. Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land. – 1 Samuel 28:3 (KJV, emphasis mine) Saul is trying to please God by his good works.
