Editorial. 15.5.2016. Life or death

The 30th chapter of Deuteronomy is rather an incredible chapter.Israel flag

Moses has just been laying out the blessings and curses which would come on the Israelites according to their behaviour when they settled in the Promised Land. One of the consequences if they were unfaithful to God was that they would be scattered far and wide among other countries and the land would become desolate. And we know from history that this is what happened.

In chapter 30 God also says that in spite of this, one day he would gather them once again to the land of Israel out of all their countries and that their hearts would be turned once again to love Him with all their heart and soul.  These words were uttered over 3000 years ago and yet we have seen the beginnings of this take place in our own time.

Moses said, " "See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil.”

The Israelites had a choice. So do we.
