GOD'S DEALINGS WITH NATIONS AND WITH INDIVIDUALS (3 of
Jesse M. Hendley
Now, friends, if you have your Bibles, turn with me to
Judges, the 6th chapter, and we are studying today
God's dealings with nations and with individuals,
particularly with nations just now.
We found out in Judges 6:1 (as we recapitulate) that

world. Instead of us being at peace, the major portion
of our national income must go into the preparation of
weapons of destruction, for destroying people. Our
diplomats fly frantically hither and yon trying to
work out a peace and ward off the greatest war in
history which scientists and military men have told us
will mean the end of c ...
