    Partial obedience is Disobedience. God's demand from His children is total absolute obedience and confidence in Him. We can always ask Him for help and am sure He will provide. That's why He gave us His Holy Spirit.

    My thoughts are we must protect our covenant with The lord, and not allow our enemies to enter into our surroundings. That why so many are lost today. Simeon and Judah were not to live together but Judah called on simeon. Then Judah proceeded to take advantage, so the Lord will punish according to the sin. All praises to the most high. We must obey our Father in heaven
