God’s laws are inviolate. No conditions will be made, nor any exceptions allowed. The conditions in Leviticus 26 apply as much to the Israelites in 1400 BC as they do to us in the United States of America today.
IF we obey God’s Word, He will bless us with His favor (verses 3-13).
BUT IF we disobey, He will set His face against us (verses 14-17).
IF we continue to harden our hearts and remain unrepentant, God’s punishments will grow increasingly more severe (verses 18-39).
BUT IF we repent wholeheartedly, God will again restore us (verses 40-45).
It’s time for us in America to wake up to this reality! If God held His chosen people, the Israelites, to this, how much more so will He not hold us to it.
We in America have violated God’s principles for too long. We have clearly moved through the first IF and BUT IF stages. I believe we are now in the second IF stage. But the hopeful news is that there is still another BUT IF stage for us to obtain, if only we will repent and ask God’s forgiveness.
It starts with me and with you. Will you join me in asking for repentance and praying for God’s favor to visit us once again?
