Modern-Day Applications From Judg 2:6-12

“Living Among The Canaanites”

slide3
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
  • Moses forewarned Israel Num 33:50-52, 55
  • Joshua reminded Israel again following the initial conquests Josh 23:1-7, 12-13
  • Israel failed to obey God Judg 1:27-36
    • They did not drive out the Canaanites
    • They allowed them to remain, live among them
slide4
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The loss of godly leadership vv. 6-9
    • Joshua had fulfilled his mission
    • Time had passed him, his generation by (no one lives forever)
    • He & his generation had brought Israel to her promised home
slide5
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The loss of godly leadership vv. 6-9
    • So much can happen between generations
      • Good leaders die off
      • Bad leaders can lead into apostasy
      • Israel was faithful as long as Joshua, his generation was alive
      • Once they were gone, Israel failed miserably
slide6
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The lack of knowledge of God’s will v. 10
    • Teaching is crucial Deut 6:6-7
    • Knowledge is a must Hos 4:6
    • This new generation was bereft of a working knowledge of God’s will
      • What He had historically done for Israel
slide7
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The lack of knowledge of God’s will v. 10
    • Failure in teaching OR Failure in learning
    • Either way, the result was the same
    • What God had done for His people had to be passed down to successive generations
      • Their identity depended upon this
slide8
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The lure of Baalismvv. 11-12
    • No leaders…No knowledge
    • Filling such a “void” with anything was easy
    • Baal = prevalent god among the Canaanites
      • Each community had its own version
      • Credited with fertility (crops, livestock, man)
slide9
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The lure of Baalismvv. 11-12
    • When neighboring peoples appeared successful, it was too easy for leaderless & ignorant Israel to adopt their methods
    • Israel violated the earliest of God’s commands Ex 20:3-5
slide10
ISRAEL’S FAILURES
  • The lure of Baalismvv. 11-12
    • Israel was no longer God’s peculiar people Ex 19:5-6
    • Because of her first 2 failures, Israel could not see this danger for what it truly was… DEATH Prov 14:12
slide11
OUR FAILURES
  • The spiritual applications are striking
    • We are not trying to claim a physical land
    • However, we are trying to secure a home Phil 3:20 Heb 11:13-16
    • We’ve not even been commanded to drive out our “Canaanites” Mt 5:13-16
  • We’ll apply the same 3 points…
slide12
OUR FAILURES
  • We can lose godly leaders
    • Through their death…through their apostasy
    • It is crucial we constantly stay prepared for the next generation of leaders
    • We can’t afford to be found in such a “vacuum” or void
slide13
OUR FAILURES
  • We can have a lack of knowledge
    • Possessing knowledge is a premium Eph 5:17 2 Pet 3:18
    • Like Israel, we can in 2 major ways –
      • We can fail to teach the next generation
      • The next generation can fail to learn
slide14
OUR FAILURES
  • We can have a lack of knowledge
    • Important issues that identify & define us will become foreign (authority, nature/work/ organization/worship of church, salvation)
    • Our “distinction” must be maintained 2 Cor 6:14-18
    • “Distinction” via the word of God 2 Tim 2:15
slide15
OUR FAILURES
  • We can be lured by “Baalism”
    • Our “Baalism” = worldliness, false religion
    • Any form of carnality, man-made religion that has the appearance of success must be avoided Jn 18:36 1 Pet 2:9-11 1 Jn 2:15-17
slide16
OUR FAILURES
  • We can be lured by “Baalism”
    • In some local churches, it appears some have already given in to this
    • If we fail re: the first 2 points, we will surely fail here
      • We will be just like Israel…empty
      • It will be easy for us to bow to our “Baals”
slide17
CLOSING COMMENTS
  • Our text appears right before a tragic and disappointing cycle of unfaithfulness
    • For the next 350+ years, Israel would reap the effects of these 3 failures
  • Our future is not yet written
    • The time for us to evaluate is NOW
