It is really difficult to understand why a person like Jephthah would be included in God’s Hall of Fame.

slide4

Judges 11:1- “Jephthah the Gileadite was a mighty warrior. His father was Gilead; his mother was a prostitute.”

slide5

Judges 11:29-34 “Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the

slide6

Ammonites. And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD: "If you give the Ammonites into my hands, whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites

slide7

will be the LORD's, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering." Then Jephthah went over to fight the Ammonites, and the LORD gave them into his hands. He devastated twenty towns

slide8

from Aroer to the vicinity of Minnith, as far as Abel Keramim. Thus Israel subdued Ammon. When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out

slide9

to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of tambourines! She was an only child. Except for her he had neither son nor daughter.”

slide10

His main weakness in this passage is that he acted on what he felt was right rather than acting on the truth of the Word of God.

slide11

The sinful cycle of Israel had brought the People of Israel to the point they resembled their pagan neighbors more than what the Bible portrayed as the characteristics of God’s followers.

slide12

Is there anything in your

life like that?

How different is your life from

the lives of unbelievers

around you?

slide13

Look at all the ways he trusted God to work in his life:

He made the best of a horrible situation.

slide14

He apparently held no bitterness.

slide17

11:29 again, “Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah. He crossed Gilead and Manasseh, passed through Mizpah of Gilead, and from there he advanced against the Ammonites.”

slide19

1) God instructs us to live our lives according to His Word, not according to our feelings or thoughts.

slide20

Proverbs 12:15 “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but he who is wise listens to counsel.”

slide21

Proverbs 21:2 “Every way of a man is right in his own eyes..." When we live our lives according to what we feel rather than what the Word of God says, we will bring misery upon ourselves too.
