oppression and domination

Deuteronomy 28:41-45 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 28:41 You will father sons and daughters, but they will not remain yours, because they will be taken prisoner.
Deuteronomy 28:42 Buzzing insects will take possession of all your trees and your land’s produce.
Deuteronomy 28:43 The guest among you will rise higher and higher above you, while you sink lower and lower.
Deuteronomy 28:44 He will lend to you, but you won’t lend to him. He will be the head, and you will be the tail.
Deuteronomy 28:45 “All these afflictions will come, pursue, and overtake you until you are exterminated, since you did not obey Yahveh your God and watch the commands and prescriptions he gave you.

oppression and domination

Moses warned the Israelites that oppression and domination would be their fate if they refused to obey the Lord. Both the guests who live among them and the nations which surround them would oppress and dominate them. Historically, we know this happened numerous times. Often the prophets reminded their listeners that what was taking place was predicted in the curses of this chapter and elsewhere.

God wants his people to be free and powerful, but even today he refuses to bless disobedience and rebellion. He commands us to repent.

Lord, we have failed to live up to our covenant with Christ. Forgive us, change us, and restore us for your gospel’s sake.
