Enough is Enough

“And when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord,
The Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel,
Who delivered them, even Oth’ni-el the son of Ke’naz,
Caleb’s younger brother.”

“But when the children if Israel cried unto the Lord,
the Lord raised them up a deliverer, E’hud the son
of Ge’ra, a Benjamite, a man left-handed: and by
him the children of Israel sent a present unto Eg’lon
the king of Moab.”

“And after him was Sham’gar the son of A’nath, which
slew of the philistines six hundred men with an ox goad:
and he also delivered Israel.”   Judges 3:9, 15 & 31.

Judges 3, is a chapter in the Bible that informs us of three different men who brought peace to Israel often first literally destroying the enemies of Israel at that time. History informs us when in the past there have been men and women who rose up out of seemingly nowhere to call attention to some course. In every area of human behavior this has been a fact even though we often miss what is happening.

To refresh the reader, we will go through several who have been in this category. One such person was John Brown who was taken prisoner at Harper’s Ferry in what is now West Virginia but at that was a part of Virginia. He predicted what we know as the Civil War was imminent which was partially brought about by the issue of slavery. Before he was hung for this raid on a Federal arsenal he said war was coming. It happened in a couple of years.

In England, Oliver Cromwell sought to destroy the divine right of kings when he cut off the head of Charles II. His statement was that royalty was a gift given to a person by God. Cromwell was a great general who said enough of divine rights of kings. The Parliament should rule.

In our time there has been a person who said “they didn’t come over here until we went over there.” He saw through the foolishness of the wars started by Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama. He saw what war actually is/was a racket. That man’s name was Ron Paul.

The situation is that few people remember when it happened. Then people will return to their sinful ways again. Often a short period people return to their old ways which was in the case of Israel to return to foreign marriages and the worship of Baal or some other evil way.

The United States is going through a time of corruption, evil and thus turmoil by our federal representative’s. We know these people in Washington are for the most part liars and deceivers. Their promises are worthless. At the home statements are made that are not fulfilled. Obama is a blatant liar. Finally, he is not the only fabricator in Washington. Clinton is the same. When examining the Bible for a pattern to live, it can easily be observed this was a way of life during the time of the Judges and our time also. A change must and will come upon us.

POPULAR EVIL NOW

One comment that is so disgusting it shows the reality of life. Here is a comment that one will hear often that you cannot legislate morality. This is a fraud. This is an excuse to do nothing. Every single criminal law in this nation is to legislate morality. There does not come to mind any exceptions to this fact.

Morality IS legislated.

Then there will be a person who will be an individual who makes the same remark about civil statutes or law interpretation. Civil and criminal are moral. In civil situations, one must dig deeper to see the meaning. However, when the liberals take over there will be a twist which must be examined carefully. I cannot know how many laws in the United States there are. Millions upon millions.

The books of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy are examples of morality both criminal and civil.

Second there is the comment that Christianity, or your religion, must be private. We should never comment openly about our beliefs. Not one person can ever show this remark is found in the Holy Scripture. It was Jesus who said to go and tell others the good news. Just read Matthew 28:19-20.

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and
of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have
commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even
unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Never hide who you really are. Let the world not only see it  –  but also hear it.

 

OTHNIEL

When Joshua was dead and his generation was gone then sin came in with a vengeance. There was mixing of the races. Judges 3:5-6 tells us the progress toward the coming apostasy.

“And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites,
Hittites, and Am’ot-ites, and Per’iz-zites, and Hi’cites,
and Jeb’u-sites:
And they took their daughters to be their wives, and
gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.”

The races do not mix. When this happens then it implodes among the people. God is removed from the everyday life of people. When Jehovah God is not a part of the life of people then Satan, the adversary will be. This was true in the time of the Israelites as well as now.

In the time of Othniel there was a tyrant by the name of Chushan-Risha’athaim who controlled the Hebrews. Judges 3:9-10 tells us this:

“And when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord,
the Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel,
who delivered them, even Oth’ni-el the son of Ke’naz,
Caleb’s younger brother.
And the spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he
judged Israel, and went out to war: and the Lord
delivered Chu’shan-rish-a-tha’im king of Mes-o-po-ta’mi-a
into his hand; and his hand prevailed against
Chu’-shan-rish-a-tha’im.”

How would you like to have a last name with this many letters? It totals 17 letters. There was only one way to rid this scourge from Israel. These judges as a group had had to act often as a judge, religious leader and a commander of the military battles which always happened. Obama certainly does not fall into one of these titles. Neither did Bush, Clinton or any of the Vice Presidents.

EHUD

As soon as Othniel had died then back to the evil ways. The pattern was already there. The new judge took it personal. He sought to kill the present tyrant whose name was Eglon. Judges 3:21-23, tells in detail what was done.

“And E’hud put forth his left hand, and took the
dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into
his belly:
And the haft also went in after the blade; and the
fat closed upon the blade, so that he could not
draw the dagger out of his belly; and the dirt came
out.
Then E’hud went forth through the porch, and shut
the doors of the parlour upon him, and locked them.”
One of the signs of a special event was the blowing of the trumpet for there to be a rally for Israel to rise up and fight.

There was a battle which came about and the enemy Moab lost 10,000 men who fought Israel. A marvelous event following this conflict. There was peace in Israel for 80 years. This is difficult to accept. The truth is when God’s love is used then peace comes automatically. To evil people such a fact is not accepted or believed.

It is only when the commandments of God are embraced that peace can come about.

This blog will not say how the readers are to vote but look carefully at those who want to change the Constitution. Hillary Clinton has a history of blood on her hands and soul. Her husband has a chronicle of abuse toward women.

SHAMGAR
This judge is not known by most Bible readers. He must have been strong, clever, and committed because he killed the six hundred enemy with a goad of an ox. This must have been a large instrument used to motivate an oxen to respond to a command. From what I can read it seems this man killed six hundred enemies. This feat should tell us that when God is present and we are with him then men can accomplish great feats. Judges 3:31 sets out the happening.

“And after him was Sham’gar the son of A’nath, which
Slew of the Philistines six hundred men with an ox goad:
And he also delivered Israel.”

This third chapter of Judges gives three different judges of men who literally saved Israel from an evil society.
The different judges had this formula to bring peace to Israel:

• Willing to lead,
• Condemn the enemy,
• Bring armed forces together, establish peace and, rule people by God’s law.

Our nation is desperate for such leadership. There will be someone who will come forth – but only with God’s protection will he survive because the attempt will be to kill him.

Why there has been no judge that says we have had enough of these evil muslims – is a mystery to me. It may be that the average person does not know what avenue to take. The options are still before us. Here are some:

• Do nothing. 
• Believe voting is enough. 
• Write letters contrary to the muslims. 
• Revolt against our leaders.
The last one hopefully will never happen. On the horizon trouble is coming. As a Christian, I must speak and at this I know God will move to protest his own.

“Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall
the wicked triumph?
How long shall they utter and speak hard things?
And all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict
thine heritage.”
“But the Lord is my defense; and my God is the rock
of my refuge.” Psalm 94L3-5, 22.

God has produced good judges. He will again.

KEEP THE FAITH!

LEAD ON O KING ETERNAL

Lead on, O King eternal,
The day of march has come;
Henceforth in fields of conquest
Thy tents shall be our home.
Through days of preparation
Thy grace has made us strong;
And now, O King eternal,
We lift our battle song.

Lead on, O King eternal,
Till sin’s fierce war shall cease,
And holiness shall whisper
The sweet amen of peace.
For not with swords’ loud clashing,
Nor roll of stirring drums;
With deeds of love and mercy
The heavenly kingdom comes.
