Pastor Wrinkles: Chapter Charts Pt. 112

Gideon Testing His Men

Today we are going to chapter chart the life of Gideon the judge of Israel. One of the things I love about the Bible is that it presents true to life complex characters. the Bible doesn’t hide the warts and wrinkles. God shows us over and over again how He works in and through imperfect people both to accomplish His purposes in the world and to save the individual He is using.

Here is what I see in today’s chapters:

Judges chapter 6 sermon topics/titles:

1. Are You a Crying Caveman? Judges 6: 1-6

2. The Prophet, the Angel and the Mighty Warrior: Judges 6: 7-12

3. If the Lord IS With Us Then Why…? Judges 6:13

Judges chapter 7 sermon topics/titles:

1. Making Little of Much: Judges 7: 1-6

2.  Leading the Lappers: Judges 7:7-25

3. Blow! Smash! Shout! A Three Point Sermon: Judges 7:19,20

Now tell me what you see! 🙂

  1. Judges 6

    1. do this in remembrance of Me (v11)
    2. God works with the few, the least and the weakest (v15)
    3. a brand new History : holy communion (v20-22)

    Judges 7

    1. Quantity is not equal to Quality (v4)

    very interesting!!!! I am at awe that I cannot find the right chapter chart. lol

    Gideon was threshing wheat in a WINEPRESS, a type of communion (J6 v11)
    Gideon placed the meat and bread on the ROCK. (J7 v20)
    God consumed the mean and bread, a type of God’s fiery judgement consuming Jesus at the cross! (J7 v21)

    now, look what happens in victory

    (J7 v26)
    They killed Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb at the winepress of Zeeb

    awesome! there is so much to tell… Jesus calling the pharisee wolf? ….. need to stop here. lol

    • You are welcome. I am always glad for the opportunity to be used by God to bring a new insight! Thank you for your daily work as well. I was truly blessed as I caught up with your blog this morning!

  2. It IS amazing to me that Bible characters are not perfect–until recently, I thought they were–but it’s a relief to know they aren’t; and I’m encouraged to think God can use “even me”. God bless you Big, Pastor J! love, sis Caddo

  3. “IF the Lord Is With Us Then Why?” I think a lot of people would like to hear this message. “A brand new history: Holy Communion.” Thank you, God. Here’s what I saw.

    2. Remove your false gods and worship Him. Judges 6:25
    3. Do we need proof that God wants to use us? Judges 6:36-40
    Judges 7
    1. Victory shall be at His hands not ours. Judges 7:1-8
    2. Victory is no longer just a dream. Judges 7:14-16
    3. When the horns sound raise your sword for Him. Judges 7:19-22
