TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I Am a God who never changes. Life changes. You will change as your circumstances change. I do not. I Am the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I love you as you are, but if you partner with Me, you will change for the better.
WILL YOU CHANGE?
If you study Deuteronomy 28, the first 14 verses are God’s awesome blessing for obedience. It’s amazing, but the next verse is a curse and it’s ugly.
“But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you… – Deuteronomy 28:15
Then the Lord gives them a long list of curses for disobedience. Look it up because it’ll blow your mind. What’s real is as extreme as the blessing is, the curse is just as extreme.
One thing He promises in the blessing is He’ll make it rain. There’s a big difference between the Old Testament covenant and the New Testament covenant. Under the New Covenant, God Almighty makes it rain on the just and the unjust.
…that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. – Matthew 5:45
In the Old Testament, God only let it rain on the just. In the Old Testament, the Jews were God’s chosen people.
The truth is, God never changes. What changed between the two covenants was the arrival of Jesus Christ. In the New Testament, through Christ, God offers salvation to the Jews and Gentiles alike. Paul calls that “the one new man” – Jew and Gentile accepted and blessed by God Almighty.
Old Testament and New, He is the only God. The only One worthy of our praise. Here in Texas, we pray for rain a lot. But do we pray for Jesus to reign? Surrender to Him. Be obedient and walk in the blessings He promised to our Jewish brothers and sisters. They’re for us too!
