There are two alarming forms of violence that are on the rampage in our society: domestic violence against women and terrorism.
I believe each has exactly the same source.
Genesis 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Of course the key word in this verse is "violence".
The word picture in Hebrew gives us the image of a person who is reliant upon the chamber of chaos (fury/war) to establish their purpose in the world.
This word stands in stark contrast to the word "might" used in the following verse:
Judges 6:14 Then the LORD turned to him and said, “Go in this might of yours, and you shall save Israel from the hand of the Midianites. Have I not sent you?”
The word picture in Hebrew for "might" is the "chamber inside".
When we read the full account of Gideon we discover that his "chamber inside" was filled with God given purpose, the purpose of one who would deliver the people of Israel from the "chamber of chaos" that caused the Midianites to continually harass them.
There is no greater enemy to the chamber of chaos (violence) than people rising up in their God given purpose.
