  • The Bad Judge Series

    Contributed by Jeff Strite on Nov 2, 2014
    based on 24 ratings

    God dedicated 57 verses to a wicked judge who ruled as king in Israel for about 3 years. Why would He do that? Is it possible the story of this evil man has something to us about how we should think as Christians?

    OPEN: In Clay County, Kentucky there was a judge named R. Cletus Maricle. He was one of the rare judges I could find online who had been permanently disbarred. You might ask: “Jeff, why was he disbarred?” I’m glad you asked. R. Cletus Maricle was disbarred because he and 7 more

  • The Wisdom Of The Olive Tree

    Contributed by Philip Harrelson on Jan 6, 2012
    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

    based on 7 ratings

    There was a need of leadership and many trees desired and boast that they are the candidate. But God has a better plan about the leadership

    One day the trees went out to anoint a king for themselves. They said to the olive tree, ‘Be our king.’ 9 “But the olive tree answered, ‘Should I give up my oil, by which both gods and men are honored, to hold sway over the trees?’ 10 “Next, the trees said to the fig tree, ‘Come and be our 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

  • "thoughts Of Suicide"

    Contributed by Andy Grossman on Sep 12, 2019

    This is suicide prevention week. This message is to give you help if you have thoughts of suicide and ways you can help others who may have those thoughts.

    “Thoughts of Suicide” September 15, 2019 Judges 9:50-55 “Abimelek went to Thebez and besieged it and captured it.

  • Abimelech Appraised Of Gaal’s Move Series

    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

  • Gaal Driven Out Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Mar 21, 2020

    There is nothing surprising about what is related here. The drunken celebration of the previous night had left Gaal and his men both mentally and physically unprepared for any kind of effective military activity, and Abimelech and his army easily defeated them.

    Chapter 43 Gaal Driven Out [Judges 9.34-9.41] Scripture: Judges 9:34-41 (KJV) 34 And Abimelech rose up, and all the people that were with him, by night, and they laid wait against Shechem in four companies. 35 And Gaal the son of Ebed went out, and stood in the entering of the gate of the more

  • God Can Use Anyone! Series

    Contributed by Paul Clemente on Feb 25, 2020

    Although none of us are perfect and we can still have fears, God can take one godly thing we do in life and grow the Kingdom of God exponentially!!

    Again, part of worshiping God is to listen to His Words and learn godly applications for our lives. Please open your Bibles to Judges 9….. Last week we noted one of Gideon’s sons, Abimelech, proclaimed himself king and killed all of his brothers; but the youngest brother Jotham escaped. In Judges more

  • Jotham’s Fable Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Nov 26, 2019

    Jotham was not condemning the monarchy itself, but was to a certain extent pointing out that Abimelech was a worthless person."

  • Gaal’s Call To Rebellion Series

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jan 17, 2020

    Gaal’s aim was not to regain Shechem's liberty, but instead, to change their tyrant: "O that this people were under my hand! What I would do!—I would remove Abimelech from his kingly office, and rid Shechem of him, and all the country round about, and indeed remove him out of the world.

    Chapter 41 Gaal’s Call to Rebellion [Judges 9.26-9.29] Scripture: Judges 9:26-29 (KJV) 26 And Gaal the son of Ebed came with his brethren, and went over to Shechem: and the men of Shechem put their confidence in him. 27 And they went out into the fields, and gathered their vineyards, and more
