After Forty years of rest for the land , the Isrealites again fall into practices of worshipping Canaanite gods.
Ohhh mighty Bal'al Head Athirat please make the water flow over my crops so they will grow.
God: What are my chosen people doing I am so disappointed.
Since God doesnt do enough for me I know that that the other gods will.
Then, Gideon's tribe,Manasseh,together with all of Israel had there raided a by a group of desert dwellers named Midanites . The Midianites ruined the tribe's land and crops
We are going to go in here and raid EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!
The next day when the Israelites woke up and saw their crops and land ruined they asked god for forgiveness
They took everything lord please help us.
We cry yo you lord askinf for you to help and forgive us and have mercy on our souls.
After God heard the Israelites cry he decided to send Gideon to save them......While Gideon is threshing wheat an angel comes to him with a messages from God.
Whatttt!!!!! I Can't do that
What in the world I can't to it im to scared
God wants you GIDEON!! To save his people
In a dream Gideon was told to destroy the Altar of Baal that was built by unfaithful Israelites and so he does.
This is wrong this is why I destroyed it.!!!!
We HATE you!!!!
We are going to kill him
God gave Gideon a sign and that helped him survive from them trying to kill him. God was mad at Gideon for gathering so many men to fight against the Midianties. After gathering a smaller army they fought in the dark while it was pouring raining and one who tried to cross the Jordan river would die.,
