Deuteronomy 30: When all these blessings and curses I have set before you come on you and you take them to heart wherever the Lord your God disperses you among the nations, 2 and when you and your children return to the Lord your God and obey him with all your heart and with all your soul according to everything I command you today, 3 then the Lord your God will restore your fortunesand have compassion on you and gather you again from all the nations where he scattered you. 4 Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back.
During our Thursday night study of an “overview of the Old Testament” we spent time looking at the reality of Moses’s prophecy. For we will read of the exile of Judah into Babylon and Persia and, then, the Lord’s grace as they return to their land.
I find the fulfillment of Biblical promises very uplifting. For the Lord does not change and just as the promises given to Moses were fulfilled so will the promise we have of eternal life in His presence.
