Deuteronomy 13:1-18-The chapter deals with punishment of Apostates. He says anyone -be it a prophet, dreamer, wife, son, brother that tries to entice them to go after another god, different from the God of their fathers that brought them out of slavery, such person should be stoned to death. After God has shown Himself to the children of Israel through Moses and through all the miracles he performed in their presence, why should they seek after other gods? The children of Israel should have been the one to lead the whole world to the true God which was the reason they were chosen as the people of God. Isaiah 43:10-13 You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “And My servant whom I have chosen, That you may know and believe Me, And understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, Nor shall there be after Me. 11 I, even I, am the Lord,
And besides Me there is no savior. 12 I have declared and saved,I have proclaimed, And there was no foreign god among you; Therefore you are My witnesses,”Says the Lord, “that I am God.13 Indeed before the day was, I am He; And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand;
I work, and who will reverse it?”
God made Himself known in so many ways and that was why He says they are His witnesses. Unfortunately the children of Israel disappointed Him, went after other gods that cannot save them and they were severely punished. What about you? Are you a witness of our Lord Jesus Christ?. Has He done anything in your life to convince you that He is God in the flesh? He told the apostles that “you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the world.” I am a witness to who our Lord Jesus is He is the King of kings, and the LORD of lords, the One who was, and is, and is yet to come. I am proclaiming Him to you and you should also do likewise. When the apostles went forth, they preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word through signs and wonders .
This is what we need to do today. Evangelism is the way to make the unbelievers know the LORD so that they can be transitioned from darkness to marvelous light. LORD, kindle the spirit of evangelism in us so that we can pursue this calling with passion in order to win souls to Your kingdom. Amen.
