Today's notes: Make Straight His Path


Key Concepts:

What is God's righteousness observed doing?:

What does this tell us about God's righteousness?:

How is man reacting?:


God had placed a spiritual gauge in the nation's psyche of blessing for obedience and cursing for disobedience. There are purposely numerous examples given of this gauge being reluctantly seen and reacted to in the nation's past. There would be no one who could intelligently look at the conditions that Israel was being held under by Rome and ascertain that this was anything but that gauge pointing full throttled toward curse.

Key Messages:

    What does this say about our present condition?
  1. In order to get past the need for the Messiah, one has to get past all of the preparations made and all of the conditions present and the objective future; one has to either disregard them all together or stretch them further towards more distant/impersonal mark.
  2. In order to distance themselves from God's righteousness, one must put their present righteousness over and above HIS well stated and established long term.
