Daily Bread Devotional Bible Study
The Fifth Book of Moses Called Deuteronomy
Rebellious People and Sins Bible Quest
Rebellion Against God Trek For Truth
Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Daily Bread study program. This is
our Rebellious People and sins Bible study taking a look into the
constant rebellion against God in the Bible with a Rebellious People
message within which will enhance your be-YOU-tiful Christian walk.
Rebellion Against God Warning
Great to have you here for more Daily Bread. Let's continue our study
of Deuteronomy and this address that Moses is giving to the children
of Israel, shall we?
Moses makes no bones about telling Rebellious People and sins Bible
Truth. In this chapter, his message is, Make no mistake ... God
didn't bring you to possess this great Promised Land because of your
righteousness, but because of the wickedness of the nations that you
are driving out.
Let's look back for a moment to the book of Genesis, when God was
telling Abraham in a vision about when his descendants would be right
where they are now in our story:
13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed
shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve
them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years;
14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I
judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
15 And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt
be buried in a good old age.
16 But in the fourth generation they shall come hither
again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet full.
We'll be talking about this Rebellious People and sins Bible story
again in a later chapter in our study but for now let us discuss the
Rebellion Against God Dangers.
So, understand this, Moses reiterates, It's not your righteousness
that has earned you this land, because you are a stiffnecked
(rebellious) people. Remember, and never forget how you were
disobedient from the day you left Egypt until now.

Rebellion Against God Examples
Then Moses gives examples of Rebellious People Bible events, beginning with the
story of when he went up into the mountain to receive the
commandments from God, and the children of Israel made themselves a
golden calf to worship while he was gone. (If you like to cross
reference things in the Bible, this was from Exodus,
Rebellion Against God Punishments
Moses also mentions a few other times that Israel murmured in the
wilderness, including the first time God told them to go up and
possess the Land of Promise, but they didn't believe in the Lord's
strength to help them against the Amalekites and the Canaanites, so
they rebelled. The Rebellious People point of interest is ... Their
rebellion cost that generation the privilege of entering the Promised
Land and their children 40 years of wandering in the wilderness being
tested and humbled:
And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and
bear your whoredoms, until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness.
Here is perfect evidence of the integrity of a man like Moses. He
Ye have been rebellious against the LORD from the day that I knew you.
Rebellion Against God Summary
Yet in both of these Rebellious People Bible stories, he fell down and he fasted and prayed
before the Lord for forty days and forty nights each time, that the
Lord wouldn't destroy His chosen people. Why? Because it would bring
the LORD glory to bring them into the land that He promised, and
Moses knew that bringing glory to the Lord was what life is all about.
We began this chapter's Rebellious People and sins Bible study by talking about how Moses told the
children of Israel that God didn't bring them to possess the Promised
Land because of their own righteousness, and it's important that we
never forget in our own lives that the blessings that are bestowed
upon us aren't because of our own righteousness either ... But God's.
More great stories await you ... Until then, take good care, and God
