The 8th Judge: Jephthah (Part2)

October 15, 2017

This time the Lord said He was not going to deliver Israel this time.

Jephthah and Israel were so far from God that they never really knew Him.

How gracious a God who brought Israel the victory even though their sin.

The 5th Judge: Gideon (Part 3)

July 24, 2017

Israel's army of 32,000 was still at a 4 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. This was too many Israelites for God.

When 22,000 soldiers leave, leaving 10,000, it was now a 14 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. This again was still too many Israelites for God.

After the testing at the water, only 300 pass the test, making it now a 450 to 1 disadvantage against the Midianites. God doesn't even need the 300 and Gideon but chooses to use them.

The 5th Judge: Gideon (Part 2)

July 16, 2017

The problem of Israel was not the Midianites but the fact they forget God. 

Gideon puts God to the test, where he is at in fear and doubt, not out of faith.

God responded to Gideon out of grace.

The 5th Judge: Gideon (Part 1)

July 9, 2017

God commands Gideon to tears down his father's alter to Baal in the middle of the night.

Idol worship is not just in Israel in some vague way, its in his own family!

Even though the whole town wanted Gideon's life, his father stands with Gideon.
