  • How Gideon Formed His Attack On The Enemy Camp Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jan 10, 2019
     | 712 views

    Gideon’s battle plan appears to have been carefully worked out, but whether it was beholden to his spiritual illumination we cannot say. But what we can say is that his methods were a type of psychological warfare.

    Chapter 25 How Gideon Formed His Attack on the Enemy Camp [Judges 7.16-7.20] Scripture 16 And he divided the three hundred men into three companies, and he put a trumpet in every man's hand, with empty pitchers, and lamps within the pitchers. 17 And he said unto them, Look on me, and do ...read more

     | 1,251 views

    Now if we want a faith that shines, I believe we need to look at the faith of the people the writer names in the closing chapter.

    The rest; a faith that shines Hebrews 11:32-40 03/19/06 Each year or more than once a year, there will be a magazine that usually will list the top 100 people in the world. As we conclude our study of Hebrews 11, I believe we could not conclude it in any greater fashion. We come to a list of ...read more

  • Every Man Stood In His Place

    based on 31 ratings
     | 5,982 views

    Helping people find their place in God’s plan is one important part of the church’s responsibility.

    EVERY MAN STOOD IN HIS PLACE Judges 7:21 INTRO: A speaker to youth did a takeoff on the story of Gideon, presenting Gideon as a modern-day Rambo. The experiences of Gideon are indeed exciting and adventurous. I read about a minister who used the story of Gideon in speaking to a group of ...read more

  • Come And Drink

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Nov 16, 2012
     | 3,189 views

    The reason your life might stink, is because your life has become a stagnant storage tank instead of rivers of living water!

    John 7:37-39-On the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried out, saying, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” But this He spoke concerning the ...read more

  • Trumpets, Lamps And Clay Pots

    Contributed by James May on Jun 4, 2003
    based on 129 ratings
     | 36,430 views

    The story of Gideon’s army has a lot to say for those who would serve in the Lord’s army.

    TRUMPETS, LAMPS AND CLAY POTS In the 6th and 7th chapters of the Book of Judges we find the familiar story of Gideon, who God called “a mighty man of valor”. His story is almost unbelievable simply because Gideon was not a warrior or a great military commander. He was farmer who was hiding his ...read more

     | 16,730 views

    It may not make sense but with God less is more and nothing is everything

    The prophet says: Go borrow empty vessels and borrow not a few How strange it seems to the natural mind that the answer to this woman’s dilemma did not begin with fullness, but with emptiness. The natural mind would immediately begin to look for an overflow an abundance, a great quantity or ...read more

    Christians need to get out of their "comfort zones" and become line-crossers in order to reach those they know with the gospel of Jesus Christ!

    The Bible tells us that the Gospel was preached first to the Jews. Why would they get first crack at salvation? And what can this mean to us?
