April 11, read through the Holy Bible in a year in Power-point, with comments.

April 11: Luke 21Judges 6, Judges 7 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Luke 21, there is giving and then there is giving. Jesus watched the people give their offerings in the Temple with his disciples, and from that he taught us a lesson about the widow’s two mites.  After that he told about the signs of the times, the end of the age, the destruction of Jerusalem, the coming of the Son of Man and finally the parable of the fig tree.

Judges 6. Things were going bad for Israel, the  Midianites oppressed them, God called Gideon, Gideon was reluctant but after speaking with the Angel of the LORD Gideon destroyed the altar of Baal. God wanted Gideon to defeat the Midianites but again Gideon was reluctant, so he demanded the sign of the Fleece (twice). God provided the sign, so in

Judges 7 eighty-two thousand men gathered to fight. God said that was too many, reduce their number, and in two steps they were whittled down to  Gideon’s Valiant Three Hundred men. With that “army” and God the Midianites were defeated.
