Weekend Recap. (Week Of May 1)

Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.  Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward. (Gen 49:16-17)

Understanding the Prophetic word

A few thoughts on our week’s podcasts. We were studying the life of Samson and we covered the gifts and callings of God. In today’s program, we will look at a few things that stand out. How the Prophetic word was uttered to the Tribe of Dan. What can we learn from the Prophetic word?

Let’s look at Jacob when he prophesied over his children. He uttered a bittersweet prophecy to Dan. He saw his future and declared that he was going to be a judge, and in the next verse, he called him a serpent. (Gen 49:16-17). 

Looking at this, this prophecy was fulfilled to the letter. Let’s look at some insights–

  • Samson was from the tribe of Dan. He later on, became a Judge. (Judges 13:1-5, Judges 16:31)
  • The tribe of Dan was the first tribe that got into nationwide idolatry, and it caused them to lose their place within the 12 tribes of Israel. Jacob’s prophecy came to pass, and It identified this tribe with the serpent, the devil. This and other sins caused Dan to lose his place with the twelve tribes. (Rev 7)

Take some time to listen to how Samson could have changed his prophetic destiny but played around with sin. Let’s learn from his mistakes and change our destiny for the better. So sit back and listen to our podcast lesson on the life of Samson.

Gifts and Callings–Part 1 (May 1)

A look at the gifts and callings of God. We will look at the life of Samson and how he was to impact his generation. Scriptures teach us the following–

As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. (Ps 127:4)

Bow and arrows were one of the choice weapons of the time. For the good, they were used to hunt. To provide food and protection for the family. On the other side of the coin, It was a weapon that was used as a tool of evil. To kill in cold blood and destroy families. Children are God’s secret weapon to impact generations. They are compared as arrows. As parents, we have a role in instructing our children to do the right thing.

Samson was a child who had an usual gift, but he was not raised right. His example gives us a valuable lesson in life. Children are valuable and they are our future. Let’s train them right and use them as arrows to impact their generation.

Gifts and callings—Part 2

A look at the Spiritual gifts and callings of God. God is a God of mercy, love, and judgment. An example was Moses. God gave him instructions to provide water to his people. In the first incident, he was obedient and followed God to the letter. (1) In the second incident, he let his temper and anger get the best of him. (2) Two times, God tested his people with the lack of water. The pressure was building up, and people were blaming Moses.

Can you blame Moses for losing his temper in the 2nd incident? Yet, in spite of Moses’s disobedience in the 2nd incident, God provided water. On one side of the coin, we see a picture of God’s grace, but on the other side –Judgement! This last incident cost Moses his life, and he could not enter the promised land. Let us learn from this example. A message to the fivefold ministry in the body of Christ–To whom much is given, much is required! (Luke 12:48)

(1) Exodus 17:5-6 (First incident), (2) Numbers 20:1-8 (Second incident)

God bless you. Thank you for dropping by. Feel free to share your prayer request. We want to pray for you.
