Deuteronomy 28-29, Mark 13
Think about the curse…what people do you know who have been enslaved by lands not native to their own, and have been scattered across the earth, (ahem, Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade). Now ask yourself if the so called “Jews” of modern day are true Hebrews.
You know I was just thinking, HOW can the Israelites NOT be eternally cursed because they always sin.
But then I remembered the sacrifices.
And then I realized that they have to sacrifice for EVERY single sin. Can you imagine every sin that you do during even one day, much less time that times 1000+ people. That temple must have been going all the time, even at night.
12 “The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands.”-ellie
Lord may we stay awake, lest we walk in the stubbornness of our hearts against the Lord’s commandments which have been revealed to us through the whole of Scripture.
God did carry out those curses on Israel (written in Ezekiel and Jeremiah) and in those 2 books, they also prophecy what Jesus prophecies in this chapter in Mark!
This was written to the Israelites but I see so much comparison to today. Just like them, God has saved us from bondage and slavery. For then it was the desert and for us it’s this world. We are tested through the journey and there are trials and struggles. Times we need to trust God to get us through. Many will turn to false “Gods” or answers…even rely on ourselves. Some will not make it. Many will turn away from God to pursue their own desires. The “curses” are consequences to making unhealthy choices. They will find themselves in a desperate way out of natural consequence for turning their backs on God.
Oh dang. This is great
