Deuteronomy 4:39-40 (NKJV) 39 Therefore know this day, and consider it in your heart, that the Lord Himself is God in heaven above and on the earth beneath; there is no other. 40 You shall therefore keep His statutes and His commandments which I command you today, that it may go well with you and with your children after you, and that you may prolong your days in the land which the Lord your God is giving you for all time.”
Moses reminds the people of Israel of how God brought them out of Egypt. No nation had ever had the favor of God as did Israel. If the people of Israel would turn to idols, they would be sent away in captivity. And sadly, this did happen. But if they would repent of their sin and turn to God with all their hearts, He would restore their fellowship with Him. And this they did, and God restored them to the promised land. Moses tells the people of Israel that they should be obedient to God, and thus enjoy His continued favor from generation to generation. And they will prolong their days in the promised land which is given to them by God for all time. But as we know, the people of Israel rejected their Messiah. And to this day, there is turmoil in the promised land. And it will only end when Christ returns. My friends, we should be obedient to God for all that He has done for us. We should take His warnings seriously. God’s warnings are not something to be ignored. No one and no nation can set God’s warnings aside without suffering the consequences; even this nation which was once obedient to God
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
