Eli was asked by the LORD Almighty, “Why do you honor your sons above the LORD?” Which is a good question; why did he honor his sons above the LORD? The LORD made it clear that whoever honored Him, He will honor, and those that despise Him will be lightly esteemed.
He also told Eli his house will be cut off, his two sons, Hophni and Phinehas will be killed in one day. The man of God told Eli that God would raise up a faithful priest that will do according to that which was in the LORD’s heart and mind.
This priest would walk before the LORD’s anointed forever (This was when the priesthood went back from Levi to Melchizedek, from Levi and Aaron to Judah). The LORD also began to speak to the young Samuel.
The young lad didn’t recognize the communication of the LORD at first. Initially, he thought Eli was calling him from the other room. But he caught on and became the official prophet for Israel.
