His Story - His People

Stuart Briscoe

Like lining up a series of marks to draw a straight line, God’s Word often points us to God’s work in the past and in the present in order that we may see a straightway into the future.

We will look at seven people, each representing an era in God’s great plan. These are seven stories, but, from God’s perspective, it is one story. It’s His story about what He wants to do with human history, and what He wants to do with each of us.

Messages From This Series:

Israel, adjusting to the Promised Land, was surrounded by enemies. The people of Israel were called to be God's special people, but were prone to corruption. Samson, the last of the Judges, is listed as a hero of the faith. There are similarities between the days of the Judges and ours. God is looking for men and women of faith, albeit flawed, to turn the tide. 

Scripture: Judges 13:1-16:31

Under theocratic rule, Israel had acnowledged Jahve as King. But they wanted a king like the neighboring cities and states. God warned them about the downside of monarchies. He reluctantly gave them a king, but imposed strict limitations. The king was responsible for the welfare of God's people. Saul, the first king, was deposed; David, a man after God's own heart, took over.

Scripture: 1 Samuel
