Gilbert House Fellowship #298: Leviticus 26

GOD MADE His promises to Israel contingent upon following His statutes and commandments. The blessings He promised for obedience were wonderful—harvests in abundance, peace and safety in the land—but the punishments for rebellion were severe.

We’re in the middle of a long war for control of God’s creation, Earth, and those He charged with serving as His imagers—God’s moral agents—on it. His instruction to the Israelites at Mount Sinai was intended to show them just how serious is this conflict.

Derek and Sharon with Timothy and Jasmine Alberino, Tyler Quayle, and Carlos Santiago in front of a menhir (standing stone) at the ziggurat of Monte d’Accodi, Sardinia.

We also discuss the Hebrew word translated “idols” and its origin with a fallen angel/false god who dared to call himself “god of gods,” the presence of other “destroying angels” among the curses Israel would suffer for disobedience, and the connection between God’s warning and the prophecy of 70 weeks in chapter 9 of the Book of Daniel.

Gilbert House Fellowship #281: Exodus 21-22

WE DIG into the Law this week, as we discuss God’s commands to Israel on such things as slaves, restitution, and social justice.

Slavery, in particular, had a far different meaning in the ancient Near East than it does for us in 21st century America. “Indentured servanthood” is perhaps a better term, since Hebrew slaves were to be released after six years of service.
