Those who insist on their vileness, God removes, and those determined to follow Him, He blesses, as Paul spoke to the Jews in a synagogue,
“And when He had destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan, He distributed their land to them by allotment” (Acts 13.19).
The Canaanites had centuries to repent. Having failed to do so, the Lord removed from them from the land, from the Earth, using Israel to do it. He then gave Israel the land, giving to each tribe their allotment.
Later, the same thing happened to Israel. They sinned in the same manner as the Canaanites, and the Lord removed His own people from the land, and once they had repented, He brought back a few.
- Do you think that you have gotten away with impenitent sin?
- Are you ready to repent today?
