ISRAEL DEFEATED THEIR REBEL TRIBE – Judges

rebelJudges – Perseverance in Christianity

(Passage: Judges 20)

The tribe of Benjamin rebelled against the remaining eleven tribes of Israel and insinuated a civil war.

The eleven tribes who remained united asked God for a strategy to use against their rebel brothers, and he gave them some specific instructions to follow.

However, United Israel lost the battle because they failed to closely follow their God-given strategy.

Meanwhile, they were not discouraged. They improved on how to follow God’s instruction until they succeeded in their third attempt.

The United Israelites conquered Benjamin’s tribe and brought them to their knees.

The scripture reported how Israelites conquered their revolting Tribe of Benjamin.

It is reported,

“But when the cloud began to rise from the city in a column of smoke, the Benjamites looked behind them, and there was the whole city going up in smoke to heaven. And when the men of Israel turned back, the men of Benjamin panicked, for they saw that disaster had come upon them. Therefore they turned their backs before the men of Israel in the direction of the wilderness; but the battle overtook them, and whoever came out of the cities they destroyed in their midst…

…They surrounded the Benjamites, chased them, and easily trampled them down as far as the front of Gibeah toward the east. And eighteen thousand men of Benjamin fell; all these were men of valor. Then they turned and fled toward the wilderness to the rock of Rimmon; and they cut down five thousand of them on the highways…

…Then they pursued them relentlessly up to Gidom, and killed two thousand of them. So all who fell of Benjamin that day were twenty-five thousand men who drew the sword; all these were men of valor” (Judges 20:40-46).

Lesson on Perseverance and Against Rebellion

God still leads people today; he leads his children to take appropriate steps that will benefit their lives.

However, things may sometimes work in contrary when we do not follow God’s instructions to the letter.

Notwithstanding, believers should not be discouraged when they don’t have an expected result.

Christians should summon the courage to understand God’s instructions well and carefully follow them.

We must not hesitate to consult God over and over again until we have an expected solution.

Our heavenly Father will definitely respond to our cries. He will answer our prayers and guide us unto all victories.

CHRISTIANS TO PROPERLY USE THEIR TONGUES – James

tongues

Tongues Are Powerful – Christians Use Them Cautiously

(Passage: James 3)

Human tongue can make a huge impact on the lives of others. Christians are warned to be cautious of the use of our tongues so that it can bless people, and glorify his name.

The bible declared,

“For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so” (James 3:7-10 NKJV).

Tongues Can Make Or Break Lives

Christians must be careful with the use of our tongues since words carry weight to either make or break a life. Words can demoralize people, and it can encourage them! We (Christians) must use our tongues to build lives to honor God.

We must be sensitive to use our tongues to teach people about God’s law.

It is important that we use our tongues to encourage people to preserve their faith in Jesus Christ so that God can save them and qualify them for heaven.

Jehovah will surely bless people who make him proud with the use of their tongues! He will honor them in this life and in heaven also.

Prayer To Maintain Decency With Tongues Usage

Dear God, please give me the grace to adequately utilize my tongue to bless people so that your name can be glorified. Help me to not abuse your grace of free speech that I have…

…Do not let me tear other people down with my tongue, but let my words be full of grace to bless them! Please let your blessing pursue me as I desire to satisfy you every day of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

ADAM LOST SALVATION – Genesis

Genesis – Adam Lost Salvation Opportunity But Jesus Regained It

(Passage: Genesis 1,2,3)

God is the father of all creations. All things in existence listen to him, and they obey his instructions.

However, God shared the same authority with Adam and Eve (first man and first woman) immediately after creation.

Unfortunately, Adam and Eve lost their golden opportunity due to sin.

However, Jesus Christ regains the same opportunity and he gives the privilege to his followers.

Therefore, anyone who believes in Jesus Christ has dominion over all situations.

All believers are empowered to rule their world. All children of God retain the right to command and possess their goodness in the land of the living. Hallelujah!

God created all things by himself. He called all things into existence – through his divine authority. The scripture said,

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light” (Genesis 1:1-3).

prayerApplication Prayer on Overcoming Similar Adam’s Limitation

In the name of Jesus Christ, I regain my victory over Satan. Since I am a child of God, I command all situations to work to my advantage. I take dominion over both visible and invisible situations, and I command all knees to bow in the name of Jesus Christ. I confidently possess the gates of my enemies, and I reclaim all my lost opportunities in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
