    based on 4 ratings

    Some very valuable lessons come from looking at the traits of the ageless olive tree.

    Judges 9:8-9 KJV The trees went forth on a time to anoint a king over them; and they said unto the olive tree, Reign thou over us. [9] But the olive tree said unto them, Should I leave my fatness, wherewith by me they honour God and man, and go to be promoted over the more

  • Bramble For President!

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Feb 6, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    The politician who sells out to special interests and who has no regard for life is not worthy of our loyalty. We need to get involved in the political process with a servant mentality.

    We have here in our church a long-standing tradition of the separation of church and state. We do not get involved in partisan politics. We do not support candidates, we do not give platforms to those running for political office. This sets us off from some other churches, where it is not at all more

  • Lesson: 37: Abimelech King Of Shechem Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Oct 20, 2019

    At first glance, it might appear that this pitiful tale of the scoundrel Abimelech is unimportant. However, the events of this chapter came very near to being the end of the nation of Israel.

    Chapter 37 Abimelech King of Shechem [Judges 9.1-9.6] Scripture 1 And Abimelech the son of Jerubbaal went to Shechem unto his mother's brethren, and communed with them, and with all the family of the house of his mother's father, saying, 2 Speak, I pray you, in the ears of all the more

    Contributed by John Lowe on Feb 25, 2020

    This rebellious speech by Gaal was reported to Abimelech by the town-prefect Zebul, who sent messengers to him, either through deceit or secrecy or both, not allowing anyone to know that he sent them.

    Chapter 42 Abimelech Appraised of Gaal’s Move [Judges 9.30-9.33] Scripture: Judges 9:30-33 (KJV) 30 And when Zebul the ruler of the city heard the words of Gaal the son of Ebed, his anger was kindled. 31 And he sent messengers unto Abimelech privily, saying, Behold, Gaal the son of Ebed more

  • The Shechemites Quarrel With Abimelech Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jan 2, 2020

    Abimelech reigned, after a sort, for three years without any disturbance; he did not do any good for his country, but he was content as long he enjoyed the title and dignity of a king, and not only the Shechemites but many other places paid him respect.

    Chapter 40 The Shechemite’s Quarrel With Abimelech [Judges 9.22-9.25] Scripture: Judges 9:22-25 (KJV) 22 When Abimelech had reigned three years over Israel, 23 Then God sent an evil spirit between Abimelech and the men of Shechem; and the men of Shechem dealt treacherously with more
