Judges : A Prophetic Commentary for the 21st Century Church
The book of Judges is more than ancient history; it can also speak prophetically to the 21st century church - and to America in particular. When read as prophecy (that is as a directive word from God for His people to follow here and now), the book of Judges becomes a cry to the church to remember their divine calling to be a holy people, separated unto God with a mission to fulfill in this world. The prophetic reading of Judges will at once convict (John 16:8-11) modern-day Christians to "test and see" if they are in the will of God. Judges was written to provoke all those who call upon the name of the Lord to ask Him to give them the power to overcome this world and its temptations - lest they find themselves defeated and swept away by the evil rulers of the unseen realm, which are those powerful satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world (Ephesians 6:10-20). This 21st Century Commentary will draw prophetic parallels between the time and place of the period of the Judges and our present time and place. Sometimes controversial, but always thought-provoking, this book is intended as a call to action for all faithful Christians to be radical followers of God, to put on the full armor of God, stand firm, and without fear resist the forces of evil in this dark hour.
