Painting of Battle of Gideon Against the Midianites

May 4, 2019 | Judges: Not to the Strong, Part 1 (REBROADCAST)

This program is a rebroadcast from August 13, 2016.

Ehud, A Fearless Deliverer

The book of Judges speaks directly into our culture today. Without strong leadership, both politically and spiritually, we can expect to see everyone doing what is right in their own eyes. This was the case in Israel as well, as the overall message surrounding Judges shows how the lack of spiritual direction and leadership in Israel produced an apathetic nature toward the things of God. Join Chris as he begins a mini-series on the book of Judges and shows us how God in His mercy heard His people’s suffering and sent Ehud to them.

FOI Today Radio

Since going on air in 1991, our hope here at The Friends of Israel Today is to proclaim Jesus the Messiah to all people. We believe this program is unique because it highlights the fact that God still loves Israel and the Jewish people and that they still matter. How do we know that? Because God’s Word says it does!

As a faith-based ministry we cannot do this without the faithful giving from partners like you! Right now, if you partner with us with a gift of $25 or more we will send as our thanks the newly redesigned and updated It Is No Dream by Dr. Elwood McQuaid!

Please call 1-800-345-8461 and  mention the promo code “DREAM.”

Gideon, A Fearful Deliverer

Once again leadership in Israel fell off the rails and with it went the people as well. As Judges chapter 6 opens, the people of Israel once again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and lost their way. This is when the Lord called Gideon to be a judge or deliverer for Israel. However, contrary to Ehud, Gideon is going to need convincing that God is on his side.

Not to the Strong

By Elwood McQuaid

Most failure among contemporary Christians is not caused by Goliath-sized problems. We are inclined to stumble when believing God and obeying the simple dictates of His Word are neglected. In Not to the Strong, Elwood McQuaid takes believers into the arena where their persistent foes are met.


Apples of Gold: Around the Corner

As Zvi saw a long line of people in a Jerusalem market waiting to be healed by a great righteous man, an opportunity became available to share the truth about Jesus the Messiah. Hear how the people responded.

Zvi’s story is available in Elwood McQuaid’s book, “Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph over the Holocaust,” available at our online store.

More stories from Zvi are also available in his book, “The Best of Zvi,” available at our online store.
