Today's Reading: Judges 21
Please read Judges 21 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Judges 21: 25

The book of Judges ends with this verse again. In Chinese saying, "Without a king, then people do as they wish!" Just for a foolish stubbornness, the Israelites were killing one of their own tribe, their own brothers. First day they lost 22,000(20: 21), second day they lost 18,000(20: 25), then they killed 25,100 Benjamin(20: 35), then 18,000(20:44), and 7,000(20:45), only six hundred Benjamite men left!

I just want to 'throw up' when I read this kind of killing. I feel so bad and sad about this historical killing of brothers to brothers, but I have seen too many similar killing in church history and in my past 22 years of priesthood. Why? Very simple, someone or a group of people insist on "My Way" as being the only way! We see the consequence of 'my way' in this chapter as to how foolishl the Israelites had to find wives for those 600 Benjamite so that this tribe wouldn't be completely wiped out from history. Who want to wipe us out? Why do we have to step into the trap of Satan to kill each other? Why?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Oh, help me not to kill but to love and to sacrifice. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.

Welcome! The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christians to have daily devotion - a wonderful and intimate time with Jesus.

There are three reasons for you to use this blog as your daily devotion:
  1. A healthy spiritual diet - One chapter of the Bible daily. We really need at least one chapter of Bible daily so that we are well fed.
  2. A good example of Spiritual Journaling - What I have committed for 1,189 days(the Bible has 1,189 chapters) to write this daily post is not for teaching purposes but this is my daily spiritual journal - I write down what I hear from Jesus and how I experience His intimate relationship with me each day. I have launched a wide-spectrum research on daily devotion and have found out that there are less than 10% of Christians that are having daily devotion. Out of that 10%, many having daily devotion are doing so because of guilt (they know that they are Christians and need to have daily devotion and feel guilty if they don’t do that), duty (they need to fulfill their duty as a Christian) or study(lots of Christians primarily use their daily devotion as a time to study the Bible). I do pray and hope that you will make up your mind to have a relational daily devotion so that you can have an intimate time with Jesus. I pray that you will write your own spiritual journal as well.
  3. An online discipler – One of the reasons that so many Christians do not have daily devotion is because they do not have a discipler. A discipler can help them build up this basic element of discipleship when they first become Christians. The best way for you is to have a discipler to walk with you for a certain period of time so that daily devotion become a good habit. Or, you may have a small group of two to three people to encourage and be accountable to each other so that you won’t stop your daily devotion. I offer myself as your online discipler to walk with you daily to enrich your spiritual journey. So, shall we start this journey with Jesus Christ our Lord now!


  1. Dear B Silas,
    When I was praying this morning, the word "unity" kept popping in my mind. Then I read this chapter when doing my daily devotion.... How horrible it could be when "everyone did as he saw fit"! I pray that I will have unity in family, in church, at work...everywhere. We have to walk with HIM daily to get the strength to LOVE coz GOD is love! In Jesus name I pray, Amen.

  2. Hi Lucy,
    The problem is we are not able to do that! That's why Jesus was so worry about "unity" and he had the whole chapter(John 17) of his sermon in the last supper reminding his apostles about the importance of unity and where Satan was going to breach in.

    We can not win Satan. He is the Deceiver, the Destroyer and the Spirit of Anger. You can see how he did that in the last three chapters of Judges.

    Only Jesus can win him and only in the power of the Holy Spirit can we be a channel to let Jesus to win him through. And, most of all we need spiritual bullets to fight spiritual warfare and that is fasting, prayers, daily devotion...
    Merry Christmas!
