Because of what the Benjaminites had done to a Levite’s concubine, civil war broke out in Israel. Eleven tribes of Israel sent four hundred thousand soldiers to battle less than twenty-seven thousand Benjaminites. Though their cause was just, Israel lost forty thousand men in the first two days of battle, because they were not walking close to the LORD. After humbling themselves before God, they really listened to the voice of the LORD, and they prevailed. Please open your Bible to Judges, chapter twenty, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola teaches on what happens when hearts truly seek the LORD for direction.
