Bahan Alkitab: 1 Kings 18

Tanggal: 18/10/2020

Ringkasan:

Israelite and under Queen Jezebel and King Ahab leadership has worship Baal. And because of that God punished them by Giving them 3 years of draught and no rain falls on Israel’s land. The prophets of God’s has been chased away or killed by the Queen and her false prophets.
Baal is the god of nature, So God make fun of them by making Israelite to experience drought for 3 years and after 3 years, He sent Elijah to see king Ahab and told him that he is guilty because he worship for Baal. Ahab  Blame Elijah for the draught. Elijah challange the Baal’s prophet to go and give offering in Mount Carmel To see who is the real God, the Lord or  Baal.
“The prophet of Baal  will put an animal on their altar and then pray to their God and I will put an animal on my altar and pray to the Lord, the one who answer by sending fire to burn up the offering is the true Lord”, Elijah said.  Baal prophets thought it is a good idea since baal is a God of nature and will be able to bring down rain and burned the offering.
The false prophet prayed and hurt themself to pray to  Baal and nothing happens and Elijah mocked them.
After that Elijah guided people around him angry repaired the elder of the Lord with 12 big stones. He dug a ditch all around the altar and arrange wood and pour 12 big jar of water on it. After Elijah prayed fire came down and burnt the whole offering and the water and the soil and stones underneath. The people of Israelite were Amaze and worship God. God sent rain to Israel after that.
Elijah was not afraid to say what is right and obey God, even to the king and againts 450 false prophets. Let’s hope that our children can be brave when trust God in any situation.

20/09/2020 – God forgives His children

Bahan Alkitab: Scripture: 2 Samuel 11-12; Psalm 51

Tanggal: 20/09/2020

Ringkasan:

After Saul died, David became a king of Israel. He was a good king as he is humble before God and ask God to help him lead the people of Israel and make them a strong nation. He obeyed and served God and so did his people (Israelites) David is someone after God’s own heart, he is so closed to God because he has an intimate relationship with God.
One spring day, when David’s army went out to war, David stayed home. Although as a King, he should lead his soldiers in battle instead he stayed in the palace or stay behind in Jerusalem. One day as David sat on his palace roof, he saw a lovely woman. This lovely woman called Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah (One of David’s strongest and bravest Soldiers)
Even though David knew the fact that this woman belongs to someone else, but he keeps thinking about Bathsheba and he doesn’t want to think about Uriah, he wants to have her to be his wife. Since then, he became very selfish and did evil thing in God’s eyes. David sinned by taking Bathsheba as if she were his own wife. It was very bad and not only that he though a wicked and cruel way to get rid of Uriah so he could have Bathsheba. David sent a not to Joab (the leader of his army) Joab, put Uriah in the front line of the battle where the fighting is fierce. While there, he is sure to be killed. Joab did as he was ordered by King and the next battle Uriah was struck down and died. When David heard the news about Uriah, he was glad. Now Bathsheba would belong to him alone.
God wasn’t pleased with what David had done, and He sent a prophet to talk with David. This prophet called Nathan and Nathan told David about the Illustration like this: Once there were 2 men. One is rich and had many sheep and cattle and the other one is poor and had only 1 lamb. The poor man loved his lamb like a child, he took it inside fed it from his own plate and held it in his arms when it was tired and sleepy. But one day a terrible thing happened. Some people came to visit the rich man. He didn’t want to give up one his own sheep, but instead he took the poor man’s lamb, roasted it and fed it to this guest. David was very angry when he heard Nathan’s story: The rich man should be punished for what he did to the poor man! He cried loudly. But you are just like the man in the story” Nathan told David. God made you a king and a wonderful palace, with fine clothing, richness and many other things. But you are not satisfied, you are sinned against God by killing Uriah and taking his wife. You will be punished for your wrong doings.
Suddenly, David realized his wrongdoing, The God of holy spirit spoken with him directly through Nathan and he knew that he had disobeyed God and he felt very sorry for his sins. He was asking God to forgive him – what does it mean by forgive: it is not holding as sin against that person anymore. When David turned back to God, God quickly forgave him and made his heart glad again.
When a sheep is lost, the shepherd will find the lost sheep and brings it back to the flock. It is the same as the Lord called Nathan to speak with David. God wanted his disobedient sheep to return and back home. Our Good shepherd Jesus Christ did the same thing for us. When we disobey, God calls us to repent from our sin. We then admit we have done a wrong thing and repent from our sins. Ask God to help and forgive us, help us to stop doing our sin. Then God will forgive us and take away our sin. Aren’t we blessed that we have Jesus Christ as our only savior and a good shepherd.

13/09/2020 – God Protects His Children

Bahan Alkitab: 1 Samuel 26

Tanggal: 13/09/2020

Ringkasan:

– Sejak Daud mengalahkan Goliat, banyak orang memuji Daud. Dan hal ini membuat raja Saul iri dan berusaha untuk membunuh Daud. Tetapi semua rencana Saul untuk menyingkirkan Daud gagal. Malah Daud semakin terkenal. Karena gagal terus, kemarahan Saul memuncak dan dia melemparkan tombaknya kepada Daud. Daud terusir dari istana dan harus hidup berpindah-pindah untuk menghindari kejaran Saul.
– Walaupun diperlakukan demikian oleh Saul, paling sedikit ada 2 kesempatan Daud membunuh raja Saul tetapi Daud menolak dan memilih untuk menaati dan menunggu waktu Tuhan. Secara pemikiran manusia, jauh lebih menguntungkan bagi Daud kalau Saul mati.

Point pengajaran:
– Tidak seperti Saul di cerita minggu lalu, Daud memilih untuk taat kepada Tuhan walaupun situasi sulit. Kiranya anak-anak juga boleh belajar taat seperti Daud juga dan bersandar pada pemeliharaan Tuhan.
– Pemeliharaan Tuhan disini tidak berarti kita ‘kebal’ dan bertindak sembarangan. Misalnya, bukan berarti kalau Tuhan pelihara, kita bisa keluar rumah tidak pakai masker. Ini mencobai Tuhan.
– Ketaatan kita memang bukan syarat untuk dipelihara oleh Tuhan. Tetapi waktu kita taat, kita ‘berani’ minta untuk Tuhan pelihara. Saat kita nakal dan Tuhan masih pelihara, seharusnya mendorong kita untuk lebih takut kepada Tuhan dan menghargai anugerah Tuhan.

Gideon then asks the angel for a sign to prove that he is really speaking with God, leaves, and returns with an offering of food. The angel then spontaneously combusts the food. Gideon the realizes it is truly an angel of the Lord.

The same night the Lord tells Gideon to destroy one of his fathers altars to an idol, Baal, and replace it with an altar to God and sacrifice a bull on it. Gideon does so and at night so that he is not caught.

The townspeople find out Gideon did this and demand his execution. Gideon’s father, Joash, however, exclaimed that if Baal were truly a God he would be able to defend himself.

Gideon then calls to arms to fight against the Midianites several other peoples and they join him. Then Gideon asks for another sign that God is with them and asking God to make fleece the only wet thing on the ground the next morning, and then the only dry thing on the ground on the morning after that. God does both of these. and Gideon knows God is with them.

In the morning, the Lord tells Gideon he must cut down the size of his army because otherwise the Israelites won’t contribute their win to God, but rather to themselves. Gideon achieves this by asking that any person who is afraid to leave, and twenty-two thousand of the ten thousand people leave because of this. However, God said this is still too many people, so he tells Gideon to go down to a river and see how the men drink. God then instructed Gideon to only keep people who drank like a dog. Gideon complied, which brought his army size to 

That night God instructs Gideon togo down to the valley to the Midianite valley to see what the Midianites were dreaming of. This was meant to relax and assure Gideon that God was on his side. In the valley, Gideon overhears a conversation between two Midianites in which one Midianite says he had a dream where a loaf of bread tumbling down the hill the Midianites’ tent. The other Midianite interprets this as the sword of Gideon laying wrath upon the Midianites. Gideon knew God has given Midianite into their hand.

Gideon tells his people to split up into three groups. Gideon then gives everyone trumpets and jars with torches in them. After marching to the Midianite camp, everyone blew their trumpets end broke the jars. All the Midianites fled in terror from hearing and this sight. Gideon then sent messengers to other Israelites about the Midianites, so the other Midianites captured the Midianites and killed their leaders.

More than a million people had crossed the Jordan river and set a camp in the countryside of Canaan. The enemy’s guards could see the Israelites and they are ready for a battle. But Israelites were courageous because they believed what God has promised. God promised to be with them in a battle and give Jericho to them. The Lord told Joshua how to defeat the Jericho’s army and get the city. The army only need to march around the city day after day, the priests would march with them, carrying the ark of the covenant and blowing trumpets for 6 days and the 7th Day when you hear the loud trumpet blast, shout for the Lord will give you the city. Once you have entered the city, everything must be destroyed only Rahab and her family should be saved because they have helped hiding Israel’s spies.

Joshua cried out to the Lord ask God “why has this happened to us? Now all the Canaanites will hear about our defeat and will laugh at our God. God answered Joshua – because Israel has sinned and violated my covenant. God said Israelites had taken things from Jericho that should be destroyed or put into His treasury. God will not be with Israel until that sin was taken out of the camp. God showed Joshua the guilty man and that man called Achan has admitted his sin against God. Therefore, Achan and his family were taken outside the camp and they stone them to death. Now the Israelite are ready to obey God again. God has told Joshua to plan a surprise attack on Ai.

– Tuhan mengingatkan Joshua, to be strong and courageous, karena Tuhan setia dan akan menyertai bangsa Israel.
– Hanya, Tuhan mengingatkan Joshua untuk selalu observe the Law carefully, biarlah keberanian itu didasarkan kepada kebenaran.
