Journal Through the Bible: Week 34 Monday

Judges chapter 3
And the children of Israel of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and forgat the LORD their God, and served Baalim and the groves.  Judges 3:7
The amazing thing was that God didn't "forget" them! But He did send the Mesopotamians, Moabites, Ammonites, Amalekites, and Philistines, to oppress them.

Does God issue any commands in this chapter?

  • God did not speak in this chapter, but the 3 judgments were the direct result of not keeping God's former commandments (see verse 4).

Does God make any promises?

  • God did not speak in this chapter.

Does this chapter teach anything about Jesus?

  • The deliverers that God raised up to rescue the Israelites when they cried to Him were a type of Jesus, the delivering Judge of all who cry to God for rescue.

Does this chapter teach anything about yet-future events?

  • Read Revelation 19:11-21 for information about our future delivering Judge!
