  1. Hi Sherry,

    Thanks for this uplifting message. But if you don’t mind I’d like to point out that Samuel was the only person who can administer to the sacrifice not because he was a prophet, but because he was a priest. He was a priest because he was basically adopted by Eli and therefore became an heir of Eli the priest before Samuel, because both of Eli’s sons were made priests but they mocked God by stealing the offerings given by the Israelites to the priests. I also read in an article that it is possible that Samuel’s father, Elkanah, maybe a descendant of Aaron and therefore Samuel is a legitimate Levite priest. Not all priests or high priests are prophets and not all prophets are priests. Jeremiah and Ezekiel were prophets but not priests, and Abiathar was a priest but not prophet. I just wanted to clarify that. Thank you!
