Rebellion against God will eventually bring a person to a life of fear, because one cannot know true peace outside of a relationship with Him. When Israel again rebelled against God, He delivered them into the hands of the cruel Midianites, not as an act of hate, but as a demonstration of His love. God allowed Israel to taste the fruit that rebellion yields, because He wanted them to repent. Please open your Bible to Judges chapter six as Pastor Ray Viola begins his teaching on the Midianite oppression and the call of Gideon.
