MAY 13, 2023 ~ THEMATIC JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE
MAY 13 READING…JUDGES 20-21 & 2 PETER 3
The world continually mocks God, and turns away from Him. Because of the sin of the men from Gibeah there was a horrible war in Israel. The tribe of Benjamin decide to protect these men, which brought the wrath of the other tribes upon Benjamin. This brought more trouble as over 20,000 men from Benjamin were killed. Israel also swore not to have their children marry the people from Benjamin…and again this led to a disturbing resolution that included murder. The essence of where Israel was is seen in the last verse of the book, “…each person did what was right in their own eyes”. We live with the same cultural attitude…in our world there is no objective source of truth for most people. Peter told of the days we live in, where people would mock God, and thumb their nose at His authority. Peter tells us that God is neither slack or late in His coming...and when He comes He will destroy this God-less world and universe. It doesn’t matter if humanity mocks this truth, denies it, or are apathetic towards it. The Lord is coming…and His judgment is coming with Him!
