Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor
Key Text: Judges 4-5
Description: The story of Deborah and Barak and God’s deliverance through the hand of the woman Jael may be one of the most disturbing accounts of treachery recorded in the Bible and yet God delivers His people through these shocking events. In this account God calls an unfaithful general, Sisera, through the prophetess, Deborah, who ruled the people. Because of his unfaithfulness, God delivers their enemy to the hands of a foreign (and pagan) woman named Jael who brutally murders the enemy general by smashing a tent spike through his head with a hammer. The Bible celebrates her deed.
