Pastor Ron shares Some thoughts


Judges 6:1 Again the Israelites did evil in the sight of the Lord, so for 7 years He gave them into the hands of the Midianites. NASB 

  The Midianites were oppressive and considerably more powerful than the Israelites. Their armies were destroying crops, polluting water sources, and killing every living thing. When the Israelites cried out, God sent them a prophet who reminded them of what God had done for them, bringing them up from the land of Egypt. He reminded them of the  command to not worship the gods of the Amorites. But they had not listened. 

  There are many gods and not just of the gold and stone kind. Some people worship the human mind and creative spirit.  Multimedia  devices occupy the attention of some, also  sports, games, addictions, can all consume us. Hearts get hard, sin moves in. 

  God used death and starvation to turn the hearts of the people back to God. I submit He is using current conditions to accomplish the same result. Repen-tance! He does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 

  Let’s  see what happens when God uses current events to encourage repentance and change in the hearts of His people! In His love, Sam and Sharon Rakich.
