Today: [Judges Chapter Nineteen]: When Insensitivity Leads to Travesty. In going through the bible chapter by chapter you don’t have the luxury of bypassing uncomfortable passages as is so common in our pulpits today. In this passage a Levite, a man of God purchases to himself a sexual slave who is later gang raped in the city of Gibeah. As a result the man dismembers her unconscious body and sends the pieces to the tribes of Israel to provoke a civil war. In all of this the social commentary is that “every man did what was right in his own … (click link or title to continue)
Today: [Judges Chapter Eighteen]: City of Judgment or City of Judah? In this chapter we see the tribe of Dan overthrowing the city of Laish. The name of this city means “city of the Lion”. They were a peace loving people, secure in their borders who minded their own business and lived in security. The tribe of Dan at this time had failed to capture the land God gave them through Moses so they saw Laish as an easy target – choosing to overthrow a peace loving people instead of doing what God called them to do. As a result … (click link or title to continue)
[Judges Chapter Seventeen]: Lifting the Curse of Micah. In this chapter a man named Micah erects a shrine to God in his house and hires a Levite to oversee it. This seemingly innocuous act eventually becomes a stronghold of idolatry to several tribes in Israel. The reason why Micah established this shrine arose out of a family situation in his own home. Just as in the case of Jael whose obedience to God in her own home changed the entire destiny of Israel – even so no the disobedience of Micah in the privacy of his own home has an … (click link or title to continue)
Today: [Judges Chapter Sixteen]: Pulling Down the Pillars of Dagon. In this chapter Samson meets Delilah and is ultimately destroyed. Throughout his life Samson objectified women and used them for his own selfish ends. In the midst of this God used Samson mightily on many occasions, which serves as a warning not to confuse anointing with godly character. Samson’s character was marred by deep judgmentalism toward woman and unbridled narcissism. At the end of his life he recovers his relationship with God and pulls down these strongholds that brought him such grief in the mist of a lifetime of exploits … (click link or title to continue)

Today: [Judges Chapter Fifteen]: Are You the Jawbone of an Ass? In this chapter God uses Samson to destroy a great host of Israel’s enemies – with the jawbone of an ass! Many times God will not use those who we think are great and powerful. God chooses foolish things and people who don’t seem to be qualified. Samson was not a perfect man. He had many shortcomings. Yet he was God’s chosen instrument of deliverance even though his kinsmen didn’t understand it and actually sought to betray him into the hands of the Philistines. This speaks to you about … (click link or title to continue)
Today: [Judges Chapter Fourteen]: Ridiculous But Prophetic. In this chapter Samson is grown and seeks a wife among the Philistines. Through his life Samson made poor choices. Yet God positions Himself in Samson’s life even though Samson’s character was lacking. God uses who He wants to and we need to discern between charisma, anointing and character. Samson also poses a riddle in this chapter that speaks to us of the nature of the prophetic. Many times prophecy poses a question to us which can be frustrating when we want answers for our life. When we allow God to speak to … (click link or title to continue)
