Timeline of Truth:  The Victory of Gideon, the Faulty Judge (Judges 7:1-8:12)
God continues to work through a fearful Gideon. God whittles down the responding army of 32,000 to only 300. He then orders Gideon to attack the Midianites. God does allow Gideon to go listen in on an enemy outpost, which fortifies Gideon’s faith. Then these 300 surround the enemy camp of 135,000 troops with trumpets and torch-containing pitchers as “weapons.” On signal, this tiny army of men break the pitchers (revealing the torches), shout, and blow their trumpets. God does the rest. God has the power to do much with little.

God orchestrates the miraculous destruction of Jericho through the simple obedience of Israel. The first step in the conquest of Canaan has begun.  God has planned a miracle to give the city of Jericho over to the Israelites.  The people only need to obey God’s instruction and the victory is theirs.  Through strong leadership and faith, Jericho becomes the first victory for Israel.

Is it wrong to arm ourselves, to protect ourselves, to defend what is ours? What about helping others who have been wrongly attacked? The Bible gives a great illustration of what is our scope of personal responsibility in self-defense, and in defending others.
