Does this passage not imply that there will be a long stretch of disobedience and chastisement before they will return to God and obey His voice?</p> <p>&quot;For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.&quot;<br> Deuteronomy 4:24</p> <p>&quot;[Moses] gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord: 'Take this Book of the law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God. There it will remain <b>as a witness against you</b>'&quot;.<br> Deuteronomy 31:26</p> <p>The Bible is unique in that it rarely hides the flaws of those who grace it's pages. Even the heroes of the faith are shown in their weakness. Isn't it interesting that the Law was going to be kept as a witness against Israel. Surely this was not for humiliation in and of itself, but a humiliation that was intended to drive Israel into the arms of a the only God that can save us from the curses of disobeying His Law.</p> <p>The theme of the <a href="../home/index.html" target="_top">Zion Christian Press</a> website comes from the Song of Moses:<br> &quot;<b>They</b> <i>have</i> <b>moved</b> <b>me</b> to jealousy with that which is not God;<br> <b>They</b> <i>have</i><b> provoked me</b> to anger with their vanities:<br> <b>I </b><i>will</i> <b>move them</b> to jealousy with those which are not a people;<br> <b>I</b> <i>will</i> <b>provoke them</b> to anger with a foolish nation.&quot;<br> Deuteronomy 32:21</p> <p>In this passage of Scripture it is implied that there will be a people who don't have the rich heritage of Israel, but somehow obtain what Israel was chosen and separated from other nations by God to obtain, which was God Himself.</p> <p>From here there are links to a section for those who are <a href="../angry/index.html">angry</a> about this (click <a href="../angry/text.html">here</a> for the content frame); a section for those who have become <a href="../jealous/index.html">jealous</a> for a closer relationship with the living God (click <a href="../jealous/text.html">here</a> for the content frame); and there is a section for those who have become His <a href="../foolish/index.html">fools</a>, those willing to be despised by the world for the sake of knowing Him (click <a href="../foolish/text.html">here</a> for the content frame).
