It’s going to take the faith and obedience of our father Abraham to bring forth the wonderful promises that our L-RD Jesus has promised us for these latter days. Deuteronomy 30 is just one of the scripture passages that tell us some of the great things that G-D wants for His people for these latter days. It states,
Prosperity After Turning to the Lord
30 When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the Lord your God disperses you among the nations, 2 and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, 3 then the Lord your God will restore your fortunes[a] and have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. 4 Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back. 5 He will bring you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors. 6 The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live. 7 The Lord your God will put all these curses on your enemies who hate and persecute you.8 You will again obey the Lord and follow all his commands I am giving you today.9 Then the Lord your God will make you most prosperous in all the work of your hands and in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your land. The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous, just as he delighted in your ancestors, 10 if you obey the Lord your God and keep his commands and decrees that are written in this Book of the Law and turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. (NIV)
You may be thinking that this scripture is outdated. But I want you to know that it is relevant today. This scripture passage was for then and it is also for now…These latter days. And just look at all that the L-RD has promised us. While all of the commands written in the book of Deuteronomy are no longer relevant for today’s time…many are. What stands out is that the L-RD wants our total and complete devotion to Him. To love Him with all of our heart, soul, mind, strength, and understanding. The Ten Commandments are relevant. G-D said to teach them to your children’s children through all generations. Some of the Jewish Feast days (holidays) are relevant. The Sabbath day observance is relevant. Again…G-D wanted this instituted for His people forever. Dietary Law is relevant. Just think about it…the reason that G-D gave us a special way of eating was for good health. Too many of our people are worshipping food and killing themselves in the process!
Yes…I understand we have a new testament. But what I’m talking about is a restoration of our people.
Consider what Restore means: To bring back to a former, original, or normal condition; to reestablish; to put back to a former position or rank.
We have to be the ones who bring about our restoration by acting in faith and returning to our Jewish heritage and culture. By being a Baal Teshuvah…Returnee! It’s our right and it’s our rite!
