March 15 - Morning

“ 'Certainly I will go with you,' said Deborah. 'But because of the course you are taking, the honor will not be yours, for the Lord will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman.' So Deborah went with Barak to Kedesh.” -  Judges 4:9

Cowards and Heroes

Deborah judged Israel from a central location in Ephraim between Ramah (5 miles north of Jerusalem) and Bethel (10 miles north of Jerusalem). She is described as "sitting," (Judges 4:5, yasab, "to sit" translated as, "She used to sit under the palm of Deborah" in ESV. Translated elsewhere as "remain," "inhabit.") which means she was presiding over the government and courts of Israel near the tomb of Deborah (This other Deborah was Rebekah’s hand-maiden who was buried under an oak tree just south of Bethel according to Genesis 35:8. She would have helped Rebekah, Isaac’s wife, raise Jacob and Esau.) The position of being seated was similar to King Saul “sitting” in 1 Samuel 14:2 under a pomegranate tree outside Gibeah only 2 miles south of Ramah to oversee his war council of 600 men.

It is interesting to note that the sons of Israel ‘ala, “went up,” (Judges 4:5) to her at Bethel in the hill country of Ephraim. In Judges 20:18, 23, 27 ‘ala is a technical term meaning “to go up to the high place to inquire or seek guidance from a deity.” Due to the failure of the priesthood to carry out their duties, the collapse of their education institution, and their refusal to obey, and thus, be able to seek guidance from the Lord, the people have had to turn to Deborah who is a woman used by God in order to speak to and lead his people.

Deborah’s authority covers all of Israel since she sends word to Barak in the city of Kadesh in Naphtali 90+ miles away which is at the furthest extend of Israel’s territory 17 miles north of the Sea of Galilee.  When Barak arrives Deborah gives him a detailed battle plan that has already been established. Barak’s assignment is to recruit 10,000 men from Naphtali and Zebulun and move those troops toward Mount Tabor. This movement of Israeli troops will draw the Canaanite General Sisera with his chariots into the Jezreel Valley which the Kishon River has been known to flood in as little as 15 minutes. At that point the Lord will hand Sisera, his troops and their chariots, which will be stuck in the mud, over to Barak.

The cultural of Israel, at this point in history, and throughout the book of Judges, is plagued with cowardly men whose souls can only seek their own security and their own selfish satisfaction. This is the result of their lack of faith which is a manifestation of their ignorance of God. Barak manifests this attitude when he responds to the Word of the Lord spoken to him by Deborah by saying:
“If you go with me, I will go; but if you don’t go with me, I won’t go.” (Judges 4:8)

To which Deborah confidently replies,
“Certainly I will go with you. But because of the course you are taking, the honor will not be yours, for the Lord will deliver Sisera into the hands of a woman.”

Barak and the men of his generation were selfish cowards. This is the case for all men in any generation who are void of the knowledge of God and are living without confidence in their Savior and Lord. Likewise, men in a biblically illiterate church will be cowards in need of constant approval from people and motivated by self-glorifying works of religious hypocrisy.

When the Lord called Moses, Joshua and others he promised them that He would certainly go with them and secure the victory. It is interesting that the Lord doesn't have a chance to promise his presence with Barak, since Barak asks for the presence of Deborah instead. Deborah, on the other hand, is fully confident that the Lord's presence will be with her and Israel's troops. She is not afraid to go.
Nabat (Hb) – Look (Eng) – nabat is the Hebrew word that means “to look,” “to regard,” “to behold.” Nabat refers to physical looking in Exodus 3:6. In First Samuel 16:7 nabat means spiritual appreciation.
Do I have faith to act bravely and with confidence?
Do I know God's ways so that I can fearlessly serve others without concern for myself?
I will learn of God, trust his character and live boldly with acts of love towards others.

"The history of missions is the history of answered prayer." - Samuel Zwemer

Something to Ponder

The Angel of YHWH is more than an angel. An appearance of the Angel of the Lord (YHWH) in the Old Testament was a manifestation of the 2nd member of the Trinity, the Son of God. The Angel of the Lord spoke as God to Hagar (Gen.16:7-14); to Abraham (Gen.22:11-12).
He called himself God to Jacob (Gen.31:11-13). The Angel of the Lord spoke to Moses from the burning bush calling himself the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Ex.3:2-7). He claims to have brought Israel out of Egypt and has a covenant with Israel (Jud.2:1-5). The Angel of the Lord accepts offerings and worship (Jud.13:2-22). The Angel of the Lord is an appearance of the second member of the Trinity. John writes:“No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known.” (Jn.1:18) The role of the Son of God is to make the Father known, or to reveal his thoughts. The second member of the Trinity is called the Word because he reveals or communicates, so John begins his gospel saying: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” (Jn.1:1, 14)

Here’s a Fact

Jewish eschatology, with its anticipation of a Messiah and hope of national restoration, was well known even by the Roman historians Suetonius and Tacitus. The Jews differed in the way they anticipated the Messiah would come. Some thought the Anointed One would be:
• a second Moses
• a royal son
• a suffering servant
• a chosen high priest

All of these ideas are rooted in the Old Testament are a part of a fuller understanding of Jesus Christ.

Pray. And, when you don’t know what to pray simply ask God for help and for God’s will to be done in your life.

Genesis 16:7-14
New International Version (NIV)
The angel of the Lord found Hagar near a spring in the desert; it was the spring that is beside the road to Shur. And he said, “Hagar, slave of Sarai, where have you come from, and where are you going?”
“I’m running away from my mistress Sarai,” she answered.
Then the angel of the Lord told her, “Go back to your mistress and submit to her.” 10 The angel added, “I will increase your descendants so much that they will be too numerous to count.”
11 The angel of the Lord also said to her:
“You are now pregnant     and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael,     for the Lord has heard of your misery.
He will be a wild donkey of a man;     his hand will be against everyone     and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility     toward all his brothers.”
13 She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.” 14 That is why the well was called Beer Lahai Roi; it is still there, between Kadesh and Bered.
Genesis 22:11-12
New International Version (NIV)
11 But the angel of the Lord called out to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!”
“Here I am,” he replied.
12 “Do not lay a hand on the boy,” he said. “Do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, because you have not withheld from me your son, your only son.”
Genesis 31:11-13
New International Version (NIV)
11 The angel of God said to me in the dream, ‘Jacob.’ I answered, ‘Here I am.’ 12 And he said, ‘Look up and see that all the male goats mating with the flock are streaked, speckled or spotted, for I have seen all that Laban has been doing to you. 13 I am the God of Bethel, where you anointed a pillar and where you made a vow to me. Now leave this land at once and go back to your native land.’”
Exodus 3:2-7
New International Version (NIV)
There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”
And Moses said, “Here I am.”
“Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.” Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
The Lord said, “I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering.
Judges 2:1-5
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Israel Rebuked
Now the angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim. And he said, “I brought you up out of Egypt and led you into the land which I have sworn to your fathers; and I said, ‘I will never break My covenant with you, and as for you, you shall make no covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed Me; what is this you have done? Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they will become as thorns in your sides and their gods will be a snare to you.’” When the angel of the Lord spoke these words to all the sons of Israel, the people lifted up their voices and wept. So they named that place Bochim; and there they sacrificed to the Lord.
Judges 13:2-22
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
There was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren and had borne no children. Then the angel of the Lord appeared to the woman and said to her, “Behold now, you are barren and have borne no children, but you shall conceive and give birth to a son. Now therefore, be careful not to drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing. For behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and no razor shall come upon his head, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall begin to deliver Israel from the hands of the Philistines.” Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, “A man of God came to me and his appearance was like the appearance of the angel of God, very awesome. And I did not ask him where he came from, nor did he tell me his name. But he said to me, ‘Behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and now you shall not drink wine or strong drink nor eat any unclean thing, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.’”
Then Manoah entreated the Lord and said, “O Lord, please let the man of God whom You have sent come to us again that he may teach us what to do for the boy who is to be born.” God listened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again to the woman as she was sitting in the field, but Manoah her husband was not with her. 10 So the woman ran quickly and told her husband, “Behold, the man who came the other day has appeared to me.” 11 Then Manoah arose and followed his wife, and when he came to the man he said to him, “Are you the man who spoke to the woman?” And he said, “I am.” 12 Manoah said, “Now when your words come to pass, what shall be the boy’s mode of life and his vocation?” 13 So the angel of the Lord said to Manoah, “Let the woman pay attention to all that I said. 14 She should not eat anything that comes from the vine nor drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing; let her observe all that I commanded.”
15 Then Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, “Please let us detain you so that we may prepare a young goat for you.” 16 The angel of the Lord said to Manoah, “Though you detain me, I will not eat your food, but if you prepare a burnt offering, then offer it to the Lord.” For Manoah did not know that he was the angel of the Lord. 17 Manoah said to the angel of the Lord, “What is your name, so that when your words come to pass, we may honor you?” 18 But the angel of the Lord said to him, “Why do you ask my name, seeing it is wonderful?” 19 So Manoah took the young goat with the grain offering and offered it on the rock to the Lord, and He performed wonders while Manoah and his wife looked on. 20 For it came about when the flame went up from the altar toward heaven, that the angel of the Lord ascended in the flame of the altar. When Manoah and his wife saw this, they fell on their faces to the ground.
21 Now the angel of the Lord did not appear to Manoah or his wife again. Then Manoah knew that he was the angel of the Lord. 22 So Manoah said to his wife, “We will surely die, for we have seen God.”
John 1:18

18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.

The Deity of Jesus Christ
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Exodus 3:6
New International Version (NIV)
Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
1 Samuel 16:7
New International Version (NIV)
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.”
1 Kings 19:1-3
New International Version (NIV)
Elijah Flees to Horeb
19 Now Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. So Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah to say, “May the gods deal with me, be it ever so severely, if by this time tomorrow I do not make your life like that of one of them.”
Elijah was afraid and ran for his life. When he came to Beersheba in Judah, he left his servant there,
Numbers 3:1-16
New International Version (NIV)
The Levites
This is the account of the family of Aaron and Moses at the time the Lord spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai.
The names of the sons of Aaron were Nadab the firstborn and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. Those were the names of Aaron’s sons, the anointed priests, who were ordained to serve as priests. Nadab and Abihu, however, died before the Lord when they made an offering with unauthorized fire before him in the Desert of Sinai. They had no sons, so Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests during the lifetime of their father Aaron.
The Lord said to Moses, “Bring the tribe of Levi and present them to Aaron the priest to assist him. They are to perform duties for him and for the whole community at the tent of meeting by doing the work of the tabernacle. They are to take care of all the furnishings of the tent of meeting, fulfilling the obligations of the Israelites by doing the work of the tabernacle. Give the Levites to Aaron and his sons; they are the Israelites who are to be given wholly to him. 10 Appoint Aaron and his sons to serve as priests; anyone else who approaches the sanctuary is to be put to death.”
11 The Lord also said to Moses, 12 “I have taken the Levites from among the Israelites in place of the first male offspring of every Israelite woman. The Levites are mine, 13 for all the firstborn are mine. When I struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, I set apart for myself every firstborn in Israel, whether human or animal. They are to be mine. I am the Lord.”
14 The Lord said to Moses in the Desert of Sinai, 15 “Count the Levites by their families and clans. Count every male a month old or more.” 16 So Moses counted them, as he was commanded by the word of the Lord.
Judges 5
New International Version (NIV)
The Song of Deborah
On that day Deborah and Barak son of Abinoam sang this song:

“When the princes in Israel take the lead,     when the people willingly offer themselves—     praise the Lord!

“Hear this, you kings! Listen, you rulers!     I, even I, will sing to the Lord;     I will praise the Lord, the God of Israel, in song.

“When you, Lord, went out from Seir,     when you marched from the land of Edom, the earth shook, the heavens poured,     the clouds poured down water.

The mountains quaked before the Lord, the One of Sinai,     before the Lord, the God of Israel.

“In the days of Shamgar son of Anath,     in the days of Jael, the highways were abandoned;     travelers took to winding paths.

Villagers in Israel would not fight;     they held back until I, Deborah, arose,     until I arose, a mother in Israel.

God chose new leaders     when war came to the city gates, but not a shield or spear was seen     among forty thousand in Israel.

My heart is with Israel’s princes,     with the willing volunteers among the people.     Praise the Lord!
“You who ride on white donkeys,     sitting on your saddle blankets,     and you who walk along the road, consider 11 the voice of the singers at the watering places.     They recite the victories of the Lord,     the victories of his villagers in Israel.
“Then the people of the Lord
    went down to the city gates.
‘Wake up, wake up, Deborah!     Wake up, wake up, break out in song! Arise, Barak!     Take captive your captives, son of Abinoam.’
“The remnant of the nobles came down;     the people of the Lord came down to me against the mighty.
Some came from Ephraim, whose roots were in Amalek;     Benjamin was with the people who followed you. From Makir captains came down,     from Zebulun those who bear a commander’s staff.
The princes of Issachar were with Deborah;     yes, Issachar was with Barak,     sent under his command into the valley. In the districts of Reuben     there was much searching of heart.
Why did you stay among the sheep pens     to hear the whistling for the flocks? In the districts of Reuben     there was much searching of heart.
Gilead stayed beyond the Jordan.     And Dan, why did he linger by the ships? Asher remained on the coast     and stayed in his coves.
The people of Zebulun risked their very lives;     so did Naphtali on the terraced fields.
“Kings came, they fought,     the kings of Canaan fought. At Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo,     they took no plunder of silver.
From the heavens the stars fought,     from their courses they fought against Sisera.
The river Kishon swept them away,     the age-old river, the river Kishon.     March on, my soul; be strong!
Then thundered the horses’ hooves—     galloping, galloping go his mighty steeds.
‘Curse Meroz,’ said the angel of the Lord.     ‘Curse its people bitterly, because they did not come to help the Lord,     to help the Lord against the mighty.’
“Most blessed of women be Jael,     the wife of Heber the Kenite,     most blessed of tent-dwelling women.
He asked for water, and she gave him milk;     in a bowl fit for nobles she brought him curdled milk.
Her hand reached for the tent peg,     her right hand for the workman’s hammer. She struck Sisera, she crushed his head,     she shattered and pierced his temple.
At her feet he sank,     he fell; there he lay. At her feet he sank, he fell;     where he sank, there he fell—dead.
“Through the window peered Sisera’s mother;     behind the lattice she cried out, ‘Why is his chariot so long in coming?     Why is the clatter of his chariots delayed?’
The wisest of her ladies answer her;     indeed, she keeps saying to herself,
‘Are they not finding and dividing the spoils:     a woman or two for each man, colorful garments as plunder for Sisera,     colorful garments embroidered, highly embroidered garments for my neck—     all this as plunder?’
“So may all your enemies perish, Lord!     But may all who love you be like the sun     when it rises in its strength.”
Then the land had peace forty years.
Deuteronomy 11-12
New International Version (NIV)
Love and Obey the Lord
11 Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm; the signs he performed and the things he did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country; what he did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how he overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea as they were pursuing you, and how the Lord brought lasting ruin on them. It was not your children who saw what he did for you in the wilderness until you arrived at this place, and what he did to Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab the Reubenite, when the earth opened its mouth right in the middle of all Israel and swallowed them up with their households, their tents and every living thing that belonged to them. But it was your own eyes that saw all these great things the Lord has done.
Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, and so that you may live long in the land the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10 The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. 11 But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. 12 It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.
13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— 14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.
16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. 17 Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you. 18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
22 If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow—to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him and to hold fast to him— 23 then the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. 24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea. 25 No one will be able to stand against you. The Lord your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.
26 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse— 27 the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; 28 the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known. 29 When the Lord your God has brought you into the land you are entering to possess, you are to proclaim on Mount Gerizim the blessings, and on Mount Ebal the curses. 30 As you know, these mountains are across the Jordan, westward, toward the setting sun, near the great trees of Moreh, in the territory of those Canaanites living in the Arabah in the vicinity of Gilgal. 31 You are about to cross the Jordan to enter and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you. When you have taken it over and are living there, 32 be sure that you obey all the decrees and laws I am setting before you today.
The One Place of Worship
12 These are the decrees and laws you must be careful to follow in the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you to possess—as long as you live in the land. Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains, on the hills and under every spreading tree, where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods. Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places.
You must not worship the Lord your God in their way. But you are to seek the place the Lord your God will choose from among all your tribes to put his Name there for his dwelling. To that place you must go; there bring your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and special gifts, what you have vowed to give and your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks. There, in the presence of the Lord your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the Lord your God has blessed you.
You are not to do as we do here today, everyone doing as they see fit, since you have not yet reached the resting place and the inheritance the Lord your God is giving you. 10 But you will cross the Jordan and settle in the land the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, and he will give you rest from all your enemies around you so that you will live in safety. 11 Then to the place the Lord your God will choose as a dwelling for his Name—there you are to bring everything I command you: your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and special gifts, and all the choice possessions you have vowed to the Lord. 12 And there rejoice before the Lord your God—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites from your towns who have no allotment or inheritance of their own. 13 Be careful not to sacrifice your burnt offerings anywhere you please. 14 Offer them only at the place the Lord will choose in one of your tribes, and there observe everything I command you.
15 Nevertheless, you may slaughter your animals in any of your towns and eat as much of the meat as you want, as if it were gazelle or deer, according to the blessing the Lord your God gives you. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat it. 16 But you must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water. 17 You must not eat in your own towns the tithe of your grain and new wine and olive oil, or the firstborn of your herds and flocks, or whatever you have vowed to give, or your freewill offerings or special gifts. 18 Instead, you are to eat them in the presence of the Lord your God at the place the Lord your God will choose—you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites from your towns—and you are to rejoice before the Lord your God in everything you put your hand to. 19 Be careful not to neglect the Levites as long as you live in your land.
20 When the Lord your God has enlarged your territory as he promised you, and you crave meat and say, “I would like some meat,” then you may eat as much of it as you want. 21 If the place where the Lord your God chooses to put his Name is too far away from you, you may slaughter animals from the herds and flocks the Lord has given you, as I have commanded you, and in your own towns you may eat as much of them as you want. 22 Eat them as you would gazelle or deer. Both the ceremonially unclean and the clean may eat. 23 But be sure you do not eat the blood, because the blood is the life, and you must not eat the life with the meat. 24 You must not eat the blood; pour it out on the ground like water. 25 Do not eat it, so that it may go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is right in the eyes of the Lord.
26 But take your consecrated things and whatever you have vowed to give, and go to the place the Lord will choose. 27 Present your burnt offerings on the altar of the Lord your God, both the meat and the blood. The blood of your sacrifices must be poured beside the altar of the Lord your God, but you may eat the meat. 28 Be careful to obey all these regulations I am giving you, so that it may always go well with you and your children after you, because you will be doing what is good and right in the eyes of the Lord your God.
29 The Lord your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, 30 and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” 31 You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.
32 See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.
