April 14: Restoration of the Land

The journey from Egypt to Canaan was almost over. The first generation had died along the way and now Moses needed to teach the next generation what God expected of them.

The land lay before them to be taken as their inheritance, but God had specific terms.  Those same terms apply to Israel today if we are to posses our inheritance.

Deuteronomy 6:10-15

“So it shall be, when the Lord your God brings you into the land of which He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give you large and beautiful cities which you did not build, houses full of all good things, which you did not fill, hewn-out wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant—when you have eaten and are full—then beware, lest you forget the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. You shall fear the Lord your God and serve Him, and shall take oaths in His name. You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are all around you (for the Lord your God is a jealous God among you), lest the anger of the Lord your God be aroused against you and destroy you from the face of the earth.
