Starting into a sermon series on Gideon found in Judges 6-8. What was it that led to Israel being in the spiritual condition where God would hand them over to foreigners? In spite of their behavior God is still faithful! Thank you, Jesus!

So, Gideon's army is gathered but it's too big. How does God whittle it down to size? How does God orchestrate the attack? Who wants equal billing with God in taking credit? Gideon. God deserves all of the glory for all of the great things He does! Amen?

Gideon has an encounter with The Angel of The LORD! Who is this? Is He just another nameless angel? Or is He God in human form prior to the Incarnation?

This sermon takes us through the bulk of Judges 6 mostly as a narrative with some insight included. It then returns to vs 13 where Gideon accuses God of abandonment. Compares Gideon's doubts w/David's eagerness w/Goliath. Then asks, "How about you?"

Gideon has been coaxed and prodded to and through a battle for the Lord (and Gideon ...) Now, he's in the mop up operation and deals violently with two towns that don't help him out. What are we to think of these actions? Where is the Lord in them?

The final part of the Gideon saga - Gideon kills the two kings, refuses to lead Israel, makes an idol of an ephod of gold, lives in peace and has seventy sons by many wives and a concubine. What can we learn from the account of Gideon?
