Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan. And Dan, why did he linger by the ships? Asher remained on the coast and stayed in his coves. In this study, we will examine the three tribes mentioned in this verse and learn what we can apply from them in our modern lives today.
Judges 2:10 – After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. In this study we will examine why it was so easy for the Israelites to forget the Lord, and the role of parents in ensuring that their next generation will not ever claim not to know the Lord.
Genesis 32:26 – Then the man said, “Let me go, for it is daybreak.” But Jacob replied, “I will not let you go unless you bless me.” In this study, we will examine the man Jacob and how he, the supplanter, finally became the man who perseveres with God with the end of this wrestle.
Genesis 26:7 – When the men of that place asked him about his wife, he said, “She is my sister,” because he was afraid to say, “She is my wife.” He thought, “The men of this place might kill me on account of Rebekah, because she is beautiful.” In this study, we will examine this case study of a repeated sin and how it permeates in our life.
Micah 7:9 – Because I have sinned against him, I will bear the Lord’s wrath, until he pleads my case and upholds my cause. He will bring me out into the light; I will see his righteousness. In this study, we will examine what it means to bear the Lord’s wrath as sinners, and explore the promise that Micah speaks of.
Deuteronomy 33:6 – Let Reuben live and not die, nor his people be few. In this study we will look at the tribe of Reuben beginning from the story of Reuben, the firstborn of Jacob, and how important it is to weed out spiritual instability in our lives.
1 Samuel 16:7 – But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” In this study, through the example of Eliab, we will examine the age-old topic about the outside versus the inside, and how God sees these things.
Judges 9:14 – Finally all the trees said to the thornbush, ‘Come and be our king.’ In this study, we will examine how Jotham used a fable to illustrate the hearts and the circumstances of the Israelites during the era of the Judges, and how we often compromise God’s words in search for temporary achievements.
