The wheels are about to fall off

I think we all would like to be able to look back at the end of our life and see what legacy we have left behind. What did all our toil and sacrifice achieve?

For those we esteem in the pages of history, we would expect a sizable list of achievements. But for Moses, upon reaching the edge of the Promised Land, he is confronted with the grim reality in Deuteronomy 31:14-29 that once he has passed away, the people he had led out of Egypt, and through the wilderness for 40 years would soon forsake God and break the covenant that He have made with them to follow after the gods of the land that they were entering.

One has to feel for Moses at this point, faced with this new reality that after his unenviable journey he had been on he is given a glimpse of what is destined to follow.

For I know how rebellious and stubborn you are. Behold, even today while I am yet alive with you, you have been rebellious against the Lord. How much more after my death! v 27

Yet there is some hope – To hold the people to account they are left with three things – a song written by God himself (which is the focus of tomorrow’s reading) and the books of the Law (what we know as the first five books of the Old Testament) and the commissioning of new leader – Joshua.

The point of the book of Hebrews was to demonstrate to the Jewish converts reading the book that Jesus is superior to everything and everyone. In our New Testament reading from Hebrews 1:5-14, the writer sets that Jesus is superior to Angels and quotes from various Old Testament passages to make his argument.

One thought on “The wheels are about to fall off

  1. Thank you Glenn. We must always remember that the whole Bible both old and new testament is the counsel of God. Unfortunatly this passage is as relevant for the church of today as it was to the Israelites. The church has missed the mark and has far too many gods that it worships. To hear the direction of the Holy Spirit is so badly needed. But God has still made a way but it involves repentance.Revival is for the church. We too have stubborn hearts and God is patient. His Hands are tied until the body of Christ is willing to humble themselves and turn from their wicked ways. Then He has promised to hear our prayers and heal our land.

    May we give permission to God to break our hearts for our sins for itis our sin that separates us from the Father. Then the Blood of Jesus will cleanse us from all unrighteousness and we can walk in the authority of Jesus and make a huge difference in our part of the world.
