Holy Spirit Judges 63

Stirred Gideon

Gideon blows the trumpetThe Spirit in Judges 6.34 stirred Gideon into action to declare war on the followers of Baal. "Then the Spirit of the Lord came on Gideon, and he blew a trumpet, summoning the Abiezrites to follow him. " Similarly, Samson in Judges 14.6a is given strength at the necessary time. "The Spirit of the Lord came powerfully upon him so that he tore the lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young goat."

David's Prophecy

Temple PlanDavid in 1 Chronicles 28.12 is instructed by the Holy Spirit as to the form, size and make up of the Temple. "He gave him the plans of all that the Spirit had put in his mind for the courts of the temple of the Lord and all the surrounding rooms, for the treasuries of the temple of God and for the treasuries for the dedicated things." Matthew Henry comments, "It must not be left to man's art or invention to contrive it, but it must be framed by divine institution." Thus the Holy One guided the judges.✞
