The people continued to recount in prayer the goodness of the Lord…and the evil of man.
They had remembered the good…what the Lord had given…
“They captured fortified cities and a fertile land.
They took possession of houses full of every good thing,
Hewn cisterns, vineyards, olive groves,
Fruit trees in abundance.
So they ate, were filled and grew fat,
And reveled in Your great goodness.
What was the response of the forefathers to the goodness of the Lord?
The people remembered…confessed…
“But they became disobedient and rebelled against You,
And cast Your law behind their backs
And killed Your prophets who had admonished them
So that they might return to You,
And they committed great blasphemies.
- Became disobedient
- Rebelled against God
- Cast God’s law behind their back
- Killed God’s prophets…prophets that had admonished them to return to the Lord
- Committed great blasphemies
Nothing has changed.
People who have received of the goodness of the Lord turn against Him.
Be not among them.
Do not be disobedient.
Do not rebel against God.
Do not throw the Word of the Lord behind your back. Are you listening denominationalists?
Do not kill/reject the prophets of the Lord.
Do not commit blasphemy.
