TONIGHT's Topic: "Deborah and Barak!"
The Reluctant General
The children of Israel were up to their old tricks...again. They had dreadfully-short memories, and regardless of how many times God punished them or sent them into exile, they still continued to rebel. Their obedience to God only lasted as long as they had a strong leader, but once that leader was gone, so were they. This reminds me of what happens when a traffic cop appears on the highway, everyone slows down until the cop is in their rear-view mirror, and speeds up again as soon as they can.
The book of Judges recounts a series of rebellions, the appearance of a deliverer, and return to their old ways after the deliverer is gone. It was during the period before the monarchy, a time of instability and apostasy. In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes. (Judges 21:25) That the Israelites had abandoned God that soon after their deliverance shouldn't surprise us considering the shenanigans they pulled in the wilderness. After all, while Moses was on Mount Sinai getting the Law of God, they had an orgy around a Golden Calf. (Exodus 32)
When the children of Israel cried out for deliverance, God raised up another judge to lead the people and a general to lead the army. The judge was Deborah, and the general was Barak, but Barak was a wimp...
