The angel told Gideon to destroy his father's altar to Baal and his father's Asherah pole. Gideon did this at night with the help of his servants.
It is finished.
When the townspeople woke up and found out that Gideon had torn down the altar and pole, they were very mad, but did not kill him. God told Gideon to to make an army. In the end, the army had only 300 people so when the Isrealites defeated the Midianites, it would be because of God.
Gideon handed out torches,trumpets, and jars for th people to fight with.
A SWORD FOR THE LORD, AND FOR GIDEON!!!!
The Isrealites broke the jars,blew the trumpets, and shouted,"A sword of the Lord and for Gideon!"
AH! The Isrealites are upon us!
A SWORD OF THE LORD AND FOR GIDEON!!!!
The Midianites fled, terrified. The Isrealites had defeated the Midianites with God's help.
