Would you oblige me on this one? I am preparing for Sunday School – Bible Study class in the morning and I’d like to carry your thoughts with me to class – anonymous, if you prefer. Here goes.
Israelite judges functioned to resolve civil disputes and presided over criminal hearings but they also served as moral leaders of the nation and military leaders in times of war. An Israelite Judge had broad authority but he or she was not a king. Deborah was the only female Judge in the Old Testament. Chapters 4 and 5 of Judges speak of her.
What do you make of this? Does this encourage you? Offend you? What does it do for you to know GOD set a female judge in place in Israel and she fulfilled this position fully, including military battle?
From experience, some of you prefer to respond via email rather than the comment section contained here in the post which is okay with me. Click HERE for an email window.
Thanks for your help and happy weekend to you!!
We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
My husband has always said, “Well if the men won’t do what they should then women have to do it. Example: God intended for the man to be the spiritual head of the home. If he doesn’t then the woman will step into that role and be led by God in what she does in praying for and teaching her household etc.
Barak wouldn’t obey and go unless Deborah went with him.
Another thought. God created woman from the man’s side not.
It makes me feel secure in God that if I give myself to Him and ask Him to lead me, then I can rest in my relationship with Him that He will lead me in whatever I am to do even if it looks out of order to some others.
Can I quote you on that? 🙂 Thank you, Sweet Friend!!
