Stirred Gideon

Gideon Blows 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 was 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."

Extraordinary Ways

Temple PlanDavid instructed his son Solomon by the Holy Spiritin 1 Chronicles 28.12 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 the great Bible commentator explained, "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 Spirit guided the judges.
