The Judges of Israel
The Judges of Israel
After the death of Joshua, the children of Israel became evil in God's eyes and didn't serve the God of their fathers. This made God angry and He handed them over to their enemies (Judges 2:11-14). However, God didn't give up on them and raised up judges to deliver them (Judges 2:16) and they still didn't obey Him (Judges 2:17). So, God turned them over to Chushan-rishathaim, king of Mesopotamia and the children of Israel served him for eight years (Judges 3:8). Then, the children of Israel cried out to God for deliverance and His spirit came upon Othniel, the younger brother of Caleb, who was the first judge for Israel and God delivered them from the hand of Chushan-rishathaim (Judges 3:9-10). Throughout the book of Judges, the children of Israel did evil in God's eyes repeatedly and each time He sent a judge to deliver them out of the hand of their enemies (Judges 8:34).
For those of you that don't know, the timeline for the book of Ruth fits in between Judges 8 and 9. The story of Ruth starts with Naomi, who came from the land of Judah, went to the country of Moab with her husband and two sons because there was a famine their land (Ruth 1:1). While in the country of Moab, her husband died and her sons married women of Moab, one of the women being Ruth (Ruth 1:3-4). Ten years later, her sons died and then she returned back home because she received word that God had given His people bread (Ruth 1:5-6). Naomi, however, didn't return home alone because Ruth decided to come with her (Ruth 1:7-18). Naomi and Ruth had no idea, but God had a plan and it had to be carried out. The story of Ruth is significance because God used Boaz and Ruth to continue the lineage of Judah, which brought forth Obed, Jesse and David (Ruth 4:13,16-17).
The book of 1 Samuel also fits into the timeline of judges for Israel. Samuel's mother made a vow to God that if He blessed her with a son, she would give him back to the Lord all the day of his life (1 Samuel 1:11). So, God blessed her with a child and he became a prophet of God as well as a judge of Israel (1 Samuel 3:19-20; 1 Samuel 7:15). Samuel's two sons were also judges of Israel. However, they didn't walk in the ways of their father and for this reason, the elders of Israel wanted a king. (1 Samuel 8:1-5). Their request for a king displeased Samuel, so he prayed to God and He told Samuel to tell them what would happen if they had a king. (1 Samuel 8:6-18). In spite of everything that Samuel had told them, they still wanted a king. So, God told Samuel to make them a king (1 Samuel 8:19-22).

The Promised Land
The children of Israel's quest to the Promised Land was a tough one. Why? Because they were afraid to enter the land God promised them. Spies were sent into the land of Canaan (Numbers 13:1-3,17-20) and they brought back a bad report when they returned. They stated the people in the land were strong and the cities were protected by walls (Numbers 13:25-28). This report caused the children of Israel to fear and wish God would have let them die in the Egypt or the wilderness (Numbers 14:1-2). They just wanted to give up and return to Egypt (Numbers 14:3-4). Joshua and Caleb, two of the twelve spies,tried to keep the people calm. However, their plan didn't work and the people still didn't believe the promise of God (Numbers 14:6-10). So God took the things to another next, He didn't allow those, under the age of twenty, that complained to see the Promised Land. (Numbers 14:22-23,28-31). Because of their complaining, God also had the children of Israel to wander in the wilderness for forty years (Numbers 14:32-34). After all that God had done, Korah, a descendants of Levi, Dathan and Abiram, descendants of Reuben along with other men that were apart of the children of Israel rose up against Moses and Aaron. In their defense Moses and Aaron were claiming to be holier than thou (Numbers 16:1-3). However, they failed to realize that God had called Moses and Aaron to lead the children of Israel and they were going against the will of God. So, God caused to destruction to come upon Korah, Dathan and Abiram along with everything they owned (Numbers 16:20-32). Ultimately, the complaining and disobedience continued.
Moses was not allowed to see the Promised Land. Why? Because he disobeyed God (Numbers 20:7-12). Since Moses wasn't allowed to lead the children of Israel to the Promised Land, God allowed Joshua to do so (Joshua 1:1-6). Eventually, the children of Israel crossed over the Jordan River and possessed the land that God promised them (Joshua 3:14-17). In order to conquer the first part of the land, God commanded that the children of Israel march around the city of Jericho once for six days and seven times on the sixth day (Joshua 6:1-5). They did what God commanded them to do and when they heard the sound of the trumpet, they shouted and the land became theirs (Joshua 6:20-21). As time went on, the children of Israel had more land to conquer and the land was to be divided among the tribes of Israel (Judah, Simeon, Benjamin, Dan, Ephraim, Zebulun, Issachar, Asher, Naphtali and half of Manasseh) just as God had promised (Numbers 34:16-29; Joshua 13:7). Moses gave the tribes of Reuben, Gad and the other half of Manasseh their land before they crossed over the Jordan River (Numbers 34:14-15). The tribe of Levi wasn't given any land because their inheritance came from God (Joshua 13:14). God kept the promise that He made with Abraham (Joshua 21:43-45).
