Sons of Adam

1Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
2My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
3Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
4He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
5They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
6Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
7Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
8When the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.


Deuteronomy 32:1-8, King James Version

Sons of Adam

Even from the time of Adam and Eve, the sin of man was evident when Cain killed his brother, Abel. God, however, separated a people for Himself through the line of Adam and Eve's son, Seth. Throughout history, God always maintained a people for Himself, first through Seth, then the Children of Israel, and then through all believers who became the Israel of God.

Never forget, that as a child of God you are not a child of the world; you have been separated unto God. How does God publish the name of the Lord? God accomplishes His proclamation in verses 1 to 4 through His children here on earth. He has given each one a purpose for accomplishing this task.

I do not know why God does not save everyone; I do not know why He chose, instead, to save a people for Himself. But, I do know that God is perfect and that everything He does is right! In verse 4 above we read, He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.



How, then, do you requite (repay) the Lord? Do you live in this world as the ungodly do? Are you like the children of Israel of whom God said in verse 6, Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?

When God separated the Sons of Adam, He established a boundary between His children and the children of this world. Pray, today, that by the grace of God you will live above the world and not in the world.

God Bless You,
Linda
