King Saul knew what it was to be filled with God's Holy Spirit. After the Spirit departed from him, he was out of fellowship with God; and he also suffered from tormenting spirits. In his desperation, he consulted with a medium (psychic or fortune teller), which God forbids. In fact, Saul himself had banned mediums and psychics from Israel. After he does this, Samuel told him:  

1 Samuel 28:17New Living Translation (NLT)

17 The Lord has done just as he said he would. He has torn the kingdom from you and given it to your rival, David.
