“Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak,
and let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
May my teaching drop as the rain,
my speech distill as the dew,
like gentle rain upon the tender grass,
and like showers upon the herb.
For I will proclaim the name of the Lord;
ascribe greatness to our God!
“The Rock, his work is perfect,
for all his ways are justice.
A God of faithfulness and without iniquity,
just and upright is he.
They have dealt corruptly with him;
they are no longer his children because they are blemished;
they are a crooked and twisted generation.” Deuteronomy 32:1-5.
This is a prophetic song that God has given his people. It is a song of their history with God, but is also a warning. God knows His people will be unfaithful, even to the point that, “they are no longer His children.”
Apostasy happens. It is inevitable. It just doesn’t have to be inevitable for YOU. That is why it is a warning. These things will happen, but there will always be a remnant that returns.
