When all the tribes of Israel gathered at Hebron, they were made up of tens and hundreds of thousands of fighting men : 1 Chron.12:23-38. One tribe in particular was however not described by their numbers or their fighting skills. Instead they were singled out as having understanding of the times to know what Israel ought to do. The sons of Issachar understood that God was bringing an end to Saul’s rule and knew that it was time to turn Saul’s kingdom over to David, and make David king.

I’m not much of a blogger. These are not blogs as such but a collection of articles I have written in the past, with perhaps more in the future. None of us have the whole picture. This side of heaven, we all see in part and know in part. Nevertheless I hope what I write helps you in some way 🙂
