  1. Love following a map. Helps to bring the stories into focus.
    Tammy, does Pastor Reggie do tours to the Holy Land? These lessons seem to awaken the dream of a tour of the Holy Land.

  2. Pastor Reggie is precise and clear in facts! Maybe we should bring him to DC to get the portion of government shutdown open so workers can go back to work and receive their paychecks to support themselves and families. Plus stabilize security plus.

    We have been following PR’s lessons week after week as he diligently opens the Book of Judges giving us line upon line, precept upon precept which causes some of us to study a little more. That might mean reading scriptures we might often skip over, look at maps, etc. but it also opens the door for me to want to follow human nature. That’s like a metaphorical shot of truth serum. My mind wants to say those people PR speaks of are terrible people and maybe, well they were from my view.

    My type of thinking wants to place them and us into a study of “science of humans and their works.”

    I enjoy the way different ones see each lesson, shares and gives us another way to think as we all strive to come to a knowledge of truth. 2 Timothy 3:7

    I am also thankful for prayers for one another we share here. And, we are happy to have Reggie back in his post this week. We want him to know he and wife are prayed for and appreciated.👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻♥️

  3. Sara, you wrote above, “I am also thankful for prayers for one another we share here. And, we are happy to have Reggie back in his post this week. We want him to know he and wife are prayed for and appreciated”.
    I would just like to add my Amen to that and express my gratitude and prayers as well.

    And I think what you said about him being “precise and clear in facts” and the need for him in DC sure makes sense.

    One stand-out for me was how Pastor Reggie broke down and explained the answer, like a legal case, that Jephthah gave the Ammonite king into the historical argument, the theological argument, and the argument based on precedent. And the example he gave that Jephthah did a good job presenting the facts while trying to negotiate with the king. He pointed out that some people just aren’t interested in the facts…like the king, they just ignore them.

    1. Debi, thanks for highlighted through your comments the, let’s make a deal case. Let’s negotiate.

      This might sound trifle ✅ but after I heard this lesson by Reggie yesterday on ‘ negotiations’ I understood a little better how to lay my burdens for our government shut down, ✅ down. I did sing a little off tune version of the song,
      “When I lay my burdens down some day
      Receive a crown that will never fade away
      Tears are wiped from my eyes, Hearts bleed no more inside.
      When I lay my burdens some down.”

      I stated the facts to God as I saw them, workers need to go back to work and support their families. I said a few more things which I won’t mention here because out of context I might sound political. I slept better last night after stressing about our political temp. I awoke and read a few words of response from the non facts blowing around like wind yesterday. I believe God is intervening on behalf of the poor lives that need help and crying out to God for food and medical care for their families because they desire to work and pay their bills.

      I hope we hear more today of God, intervening in our Nation(s) business because God’s children cried out for mercy on behalf of the suffering.

      Hey, Reggie came to Washington. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻When we all add our gift to the Head. Jesus Christ only, we see great results. Let’s be encouraged.

      1. Thanks for sharing your ‘trifle’, Sara and your woven insights…and “I believe God is intervening on behalf of the poor lives that need help “…very encouraging.

      2. Sara, you wrote this yesterday , “I believe God is intervening on behalf of the poor lives that need help and crying out to God for food and medical care for their families because they desire to work and pay their bills…
        I hope we hear more today of God, intervening in our Nation(s) business because God’s children cried out for mercy on behalf of the suffering…”

        Then today we heard the government shutdown ends,,,(at least until Feb 15). Encouraging…and encouraging to continue praying.

      1. Tammy, yes, I would agree you are right…and when Pastor Reggie said that people just aren’t interested in the facts…looks like that means they are not even interested.

  4. We are all so glad Pastor Reggie your back. God is good to us to have you give the scripture and background info as you teach. Also the clumping and organization of info which otherwise would be too much for me and I’d hurriedly skip right over it.

    If I get this right, to me Jeththah through digging for truth, trying to handle the issue diplomatically, and speaking truth about the Israelites revealed Ammon for who he was behind his mask, a bully to get what he said is mine, mine, mine with a heart of stone due thinking its my way and I’m not listening to anyone.

    As you spoke of not listening which occurs in the church too, I thought
    the mask will be unmasked and the truth stand on that judgement day.
    God’s eye is on the ones who were listening an applied truth or on the ones who were flexing their muscle thinking that’s all I need.

    1. Rena, I’v been think on your last paragraph, it seems Proverbs 3:7-8 has a spot in this…”Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord, and shun evil.” WOW, think on this promise, “This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.”

      Be teachable…we are told Fools are wise in their own eyes. And, lest we forgot if we are not wise we are…hum! We need counsel, different opinions, listen, ask questions and seek from people than ones that look and act like ourselves. We need to accept correction and always make sure we are seeking the right way by the guidelines given in God’s Word. We are the “Apple of God’s Eye.” We can repent by recognizing we have made mistakes, sin, misunderstand. This keeps us the Apple. Don’t you love being an Apple? 🍎🍏🍎

      1. I really believe all of us here want to be teachable and we are even with mistakes here and there.

        I have a question how do we handle those around us that are not teachable? Thinking on our lessons from Judges seems there were serious conquences for those that refuse to listen. ????? We are not islands unto ourselves so aren’t we affected in some way.
