What Rock Are You Depending On Today?
Deuteronomy speaks of Jeshurun, the "righteous ones". Certainly, in the beginning of this nation, we were the "righteous ones", founded on the Word of God; by Godly men proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the King of the earth. It is said of George Washington, when they wanted to make him King instead of President: He said, "This nation has one King and He is Jesus Christ."
“But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation. They provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they Him to anger. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not." Deuteronomy 32:15-17
This nation has become fat (wealthy) and has rebelled against God. This nation has forsaken God and lightly esteemed the Rock that it was founded upon. This nation has provoked God to jealousy and anger with strange gods. This nation has sacrificed unto devils.
We allow our children to listen to rock music that has gotten continually worse with its message of rebellion, revolution, euthanasia, drugs, sex and suicide. We justify them listening to this because we listen to so-called Christian rock, country and contemporary Christian music and refuse to take a Godly stance and be examples to our children. If we will not serve God with a whole heart, clean and pure, how can we expect our children to?
"Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee. And when the Lord saw it, He abhorred them, because of the provoking of His sons, and of His daughters. And He said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith." Deuteronomy 32:18-20
Deuteronomy proclaims that this nation is unmindful and has forgotten the Rock that formed them. God has taken notice of this and He is abhorred because of the provoking of His sons and daughters.
He has hid His face from this nation to see what their end will be. He speaks of a froward generation and children of no faith.
"For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end! How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their rock had sold them, and the Lord had shut them up?" Deuteronomy 32:28-30
"For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges." Deuteronomy 32:31
And again God asks: ". . . Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection." Deuteronomy 32:37-38
Where are the ones you have depended on to feed you, house you, and pay your bills? Where are the ones you depend on for your health and your answer to all needs and desires? Where are the ones you look to for the answers to all your problems, the ones you desire to have rule and reign over your life?
“Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.” Deuteronomy 32:18
In whom will you put your trust, in this last hour of time.
“The God of my rock; in him will I trust: [he is] my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.” II Samuel 22:3
We encourage you. Today is the Day to proclaim in our hearts, with all our heart as Jos
“And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15
