1 Samuel 2:15-16 – Corrupt & Ungodly

The book of 1 Samuel gives us a glimpse into the condition of the priesthood in the days of the Judges.  God had been silent, as the Word of the Lord was rare (1 Samuel 3:1).  When we look at Eli and his worthless sons who ministered as priests, we can certainly see the reason…

Luke 11:50-51 – The Doomed Generation

On the heels of Jesus describing the people of His time as an evil generation because they sought a sign from God – despite having seen many signs from Yahweh in the person of Jesus – He condemned them.  He said that the queen of Sheba and the men of Nineveh would rise up in…

Judges 20:35 – Destruction of Benjamin

The final events in the book of Judges 19-21 are among the most grievous in Scripture.  From a human perspective, it also seems to make little sense how God operated.  If you’re like me, perhaps you come away from the narrative scratching your head and wondering what God had in mind the way everything transpired….

Judges 18:19 – “Keep Quiet”

What is it about so many of the priests and Levites we meet in the book of Judges?  Each one seems to be worse than the next.  Weren’t they supposed to be set apart by God for service to Him because they stood athwart the sin and evil they saw during the incident of the…

Luke 10:20 – The Most Important Thing

Jesus demonstrated His authority when He sent out disciples in His Name.  When He first sent out the Twelve, they received from Him the power to cast out demons and cure diseases, but in doing these miracles, their primary purpose was to proclaim the Kingdom of God (Luke 9:1-2).  These were His handpicked men who…

Luke 9:57-62 – Costly Faith

How corrupted the Words and teachings of Jesus have become in these latter days!  For anyone who has read the Bible to think that Jesus came to give us our best life now is a mystery.  Well, maybe not.  Satan’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy.  Certainly his intent is to cause those who…

Judges 10:16 – God Grew Weary

In the time of their oppression from various foreign powers, Israel stubbornly and foolishly resisted turning to Yahweh for deliverance.  Judges 10:6 describes this: The people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals and the Ashtaroth, the gods of Syria, the gods of Sidon, the…

Judges 9:56-57 – Lethal Curses

Throughout the Old Testament, we see various curses being pronounced; some are by men, some by God.  What we also typically see is a fulfillment of those curses.  So, are curses real, and something we should be concerned about today? The account of Gideon with his victory over the Midianites ends poorly.  God raised up…

Judges 6:31 – Contending for Baal

Why is it that those who follow other gods feel they have to protect their god; that he cannot do the work of protecting himself?  I’m thinking specifically of Islam right now with the followers of Allah, but this certainly applies to every other god.  All of them apparently need their followers to act in…
