Question 21 - Did Saul enquire God or not?

1 Samuel 28:6 NKJV - "And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by the prophets."
           1 Chronicles 10:13-14 NKJV - "So Saul… did not inquire of the LORD; therefore He killed him, and turned the kingdom over to David the son of Jesse."

                Saul, who did not have the answer from the Lord Jehovah, consulted an evil medium for guidance. What was the reason that the Lord Jehovah did not give answer? In this enquiry, there is no completeness. For this reason, even if it is enquired, it is reckoned that it was not enquired. Did not the Lord God, who knows the moment of all creation, know the inner most feelings of Saul? Saul was not a stable minded, but fickle-minded. For this reason, the Lord God gave one small test for Saul. That is, He kept quiet, is the test. Immediately, the weakness of Saul came out. What is the result? He consulted a medium for guidance. Why? They may tell something. What is the wages of violating the command of the Lord? “Death”, the Lord gave this to Saul.
