COMMITMENT to GOD

February 13, 2015

Friday

 

Deuteronomy 13:4

 

“You shall follow the LORD your God and fear Him; and you shall keep His commandments, listen to His voice, serve Him, and cling to Him.

 

 

LESSON

 

God permitted prophets to utter false prophecies to test His people’s love, specifically, to see if they would remain loyal to Him. The acid test of a false prophet was his or her fidelity to the Mosaic Covenant. If he led the people away from God, the civil authorities were to put him to death.

Some false prophets would foretell the future since they received this information from the evil spirit world. Some of them could even perform signs and wonders, which would appear to substantiate their claim that their power came from God. Enticement to idolatry was a very serious crime in Israel.

The Christian’s walk with the Lord should connote that he remembers God’s blessings, his commitments to, and his hope in Jesus the Christ.
