a sign and a wonder

Deuteronomy 28:46-48 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 28:46 These curses will be a sign and a wonder against you and your descendants permanently.
Deuteronomy 28:47 Because you didn’t serve Yahveh your God with joy and a cheerful heart, even though you had an abundance of everything,
Deuteronomy 28:48 you will serve your enemies Yahveh will send against you, in famine, thirst, nakedness, and a lack of everything. He will place an iron yoke on your neck until he has exterminated you.

a sign and a wonder

If you have been following this blog for a while, you are probably wondering when I’m going to get around to the good news again. Believe me, the Israelites were thinking similar thoughts. They were wondering why God spent so much time detailing all of the things he was going to allow his people to suffer. They knew that God loved them. He had rescued their entire nation from slavery, and brought them into a land of abundance. He had given them numerous miraculous signs.

And once they started rebelling against him and turning to other gods and serving them, he did not shut off the signs. He simply changed the nature of the signs. The curses themselves would be a sign and a wonder from the same God who brought them signs of rescue.

So Christian, if you thing you are due for a miracle, you may be right, but be careful what you ask for. God in his wisdom may send a sign of his displeasure.

Lord, give us the wisdom to obey your word, and stop seeking proof. Jesus is proof enough.
