Wesley's Notes for Leviticus 26:19

Discussion for Leviticus 26:19

  • Ruth Moreau for verse 19
    Oh, Yes, The Almighty is just keeping his word. He is always faithful to us but we are so unfaithful to Him. What we are seeing in the world today is nothing compared to what is coming. The weather patterns, floods, earthquakes, pestilence, wars - all foretold so long ago. The power of the holy people is scattered. The pride of America, the greatest nation on earth, is surely being broken - their earth is like brass with thousands of acres in drought and food shortages are looming with hurricanes and floods (Sandy). They have broken their covenant with the Almighty and are a nation under judgement. God is not mocked and His Word will not return to him void. We either obey His laws or be broken by them. I am the Lord, I change not. Ruth Moreasu
