Let Dagon Fall

14 August 2016



1 Samuel 5


After capturing the Ark of the Covenant in 1 Samuel 5 the Philistines initially believe their false god is more powerful than the God of the Israelites. However, they ultimately discover their god is feeble and powerless as they are afflicted with a terrible plague. Despite this overwhelming evidence they still choose to stick with their old idol, sending the one true and powerful God away from their midst.
