Today's Step in the Word

There is no getting away from the fact that God was from the beginning and is from everlasting to everlasting. God is the Word, the Word is God and there is no separating of the two. When we read the Holy Scriptures we come in close and personal contact with God. We know who He is and what He desires of us. So read God’s Word today.

Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My Words shall not pass away" (Matthew 24:35). "Thy Words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy Word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart . . ."(Jeremiah 15:16)

BIBLE ALERT - This feature takes a look at a Book of the Bible and highlights its spiritual application, meaning and other related facts.

This week’s alert features The Book of Judges

The Book of Judges is the seventh book of the Old Testament with 21 chapters. This Book heralds a new era in the life of the Jews and is representative of the time when they were ruled by an assortment of judges after Joshua died. The peace that they knew under Joshua’s leadership is short lived as they fall deeply into sin that separates them from God. The old generation has all passed away and the new generation of Jews forsake God and do much evil in His sight. They serve many false gods including Balim, Baal and Ashtaroth (Judges 2:12). They are not satisfied with God’s leadership and provision and request for rulers. God sends them many deliverers in the form of judges and these include Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Jepthah and Deborah a prophetess and the first woman judge who judges under a palm tree. Because of the evil that they do God is very angry and delivers them into the hands of the Midianites, the Ammonites, the Philistines and other inhabitants of the land who oppress them for several years at a time. Each time they are oppressed and cry to God, He sends them a deliverer. We read of valiant Gideon who is noted for doing wonders with his 300-strong army and for testing God’s will with a fleece.

“In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25).

It is in the book of Judges we read the words ‘Jehovah-shalom’ which mean the Lord is peace (Judges 6:24). We are stunned by the accounts of Jepthah’s vow to God which he could not rescind and which cost him the life of his only daughter (Judges 11:30-40), and we encounter Samson the weak strong man, his liaison with Delilah and his slaying of the Philistines. The lives of the Jews get worse as sin prevail in their midst and for this God causes many hardships to befall them. There is much to read in this very significant Book of the Bible which portrays the nature of mankind whose sin cause God to send the greatest deliverer and wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ. .
