“The House of Gods”
Judges 17

As we approach the two-hundred and twenty-
second birthday of our nation .. we’re thinking under
the heading: God Bless America!
Now take God’s Word and turn please to

that we find the nation of Israel, like modern day
America, forgetting their God- blessed heritage! We
