Those Old Sunday School Lessons

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Recently I concluded a series of classes entitled “Old Sunday School Lessons”.  I rolled out those old time favorites like David and Goliath, Joseph & the Coat of Many Colors, Moses and the Red Sea and quite a few others.  My overall theme was faith with each lesson focusing on faith in God or having faith in His promises.

Benjamin Franklin is credited with a quote… “Some people die at 25 and aren’t buried until 75.” In context this was given in reference to those who stop learning and or growing as an individual.  Isn’t it a sad thought to consider that many can remember those old Sunday School lessons but have lost their passion for God’s word as they entered adulthood.  They might be young adults, middle aged or even senior adults but their spiritual awareness is the equivalent of an elementary education.

Israel’s Pillar of Cloud

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) are calling their latest efforts to combat Hamas-backed terrorism from Gaza operation “Amud Anan” which in English is Pillar of Cloud. It is a reference to the following passages in Exodus:

Exodus 13:21 And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night:

Exodus 14:19-20 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: 20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.This is especially interesting considering that Egypt may once again be involved.  Egypt’s leader has met with Hamas, the terrorist organization behind the current attacks from Gaza and yesterday several rocket launched from Sinai which belongs currently to Egypt hit outside of Jerusalem.  No matter what other countries may do, God will protect Israel.  Just as He once showed up as a pillar of cloud to defend Israel, He will preserve Israel.Exodus 14:13-14 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

Israel warns of escalation after being attacked

Today, Israel was fired upon by Hamas backed Palestinian militants.  “Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak signaled that Israel is ready to escalate its military operations against Gaza after at least one long-range missile was fired at Tel Aviv by Palestinian militants.  The missile attack and the volume of fire in general toward Israel “is an escalation and there will be a price to pay,” Barak said on Channel 2 television yesterday.  It was the first such attack on Israel’s commercial hub since Iraqi missiles in 1991 during the Gulf War.”  (

(Reuters) – “Two rockets fired from the Gaza Strip targeted Tel Aviv on Thursday in the first attack on Israel’s commercial capital in 20 years, raising the stakes in a showdown between Israel and the Palestinians that is moving towards all-out war.”

JERUSALEM — Israeli aircraft pummeled rocket launching operations of Gaza militants on Friday, and as troops, tanks and armored personnel carriers massed near the Palestinian territory, signaling a ground invasion might be growing near. (By AMY TEIBEL, Associated Press; KARIN LAUB, Associated Press)

The picture below shows the rocket threat to Israel from the Gaza strip.   Zephaniah 2:4 For Gaza shall be forsaken, and Ashkelon a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod at the noon day, and Ekron shall be rooted up.
