Yesterday we heard how the tribes of Gad, Reuben, and half the
tribe of Manasseh promised to go ahead of their fellow Israelites in
battle on the west side of the Jordon, because they were receiving
land on the east side of the Jordan. In hinds site, I must say this was
not a great idea. Because of how often all the men were required to
go to Jerusalem for the holy assemblies, it must have been very easy
to not attend those events and grow increasingly far from the Lord.
We turn to the famous Psalm 46. This was the inspiration for the hymn A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.
We turn for the second time to Acts 5. Yesterday we heard the sobering story of Ananias and Sapphira. Then, just when God was using the apostles to perform many miracles, they were arrested.
