Prosperity After Turning to the Lord
1 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 fortunes[a] and 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.
5 He will bring you to the land that belonged to your ancestors, and you will take possession of it. He will make you more prosperous and numerous than your ancestors.
6 The Lord your God will circumcise your hearts and the hearts of your descendants, so that you may love him with all your heart and with all your soul, and live.
The previous study of Deuteronomy Chapter 28, “The Willie Lynch Letter,” as well as the psychological warfare and spiritual oppression that still occurs are manifestations of the curses in our study. You can recall specific events in history and currently that demonstrate that the prophecy in Deuteronomy 28 is being fulfilled.
Deuteronomy Chapter 30 depicts the prosperity and restoration of the nation of Israel. It is imperative that the chosen people of God awaken now because when we awaken in who we are in Christ, we will truly repent and turn from our wicked ways through the spirit of repentance and restoration that God will evoke. When we repent, us and our children, and obey Him will all our hear and our soul, then the Lord will restore our fortunes and have compassion on us. He will gather us again from all the nations.
Ezekiel 37:21-23 says, “and say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I will take the Israelites out of the nations where they have gone. I will gather them from all around and bring them back into their own land. I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel. There will be one king over all of them and they will never again be two nations or be divided into two kingdoms. They will no longer defile themselves with their idols and vile images or with any of their offenses, for I will save them from all their sinful backsliding, and I will cleanse them. They will be my people, and I will be their God.”
Our awakening as the church is imperative because we have a responsibility to prophesy to others for their awakening. Jene Walker
