Abimelech tried to massacre all his brothers, but Jotham, the youngest, escaped. When the men of Shechem made Abimelech their king, Jotham shouted a warning to them about their sin. He told them how Gideon, his father, had risked his own life to deliver them from their enemy, and he warned them to turn back to God. The LORD graciously gave them three years to repent, but their hearts had already chosen to rebel. Please open your Bible to Judges, chapter nine and listen as Pastor Ray Viola reminds us of the need to repent and turn back to God when we sin.
