SATURDAY 7TH, APRIL, 2018 MORNING PRAYER DEVOTION
SCRIPTURE READING:- GENESIS 19:30-38
TOPIC:– MOAB WAS INCESTUOUS
TEXT:- GENESIS 19:37
The Hebrew language for Moab is called “Mowab” which means progeny of a father. Moab happened to be an incestuous son of Lot.
The Moabites were the descendants of lot, and were neighbors of the Amorites on the opposite side of the Arnon, Numbers 21:13. They possessed many great cities, Numbers 21:28-30; 23:7; Isaiah 15:1.
They were prosperous, arrogant, and idolatrous. They were mighty men of war, Isaiah 16:6. The Amorites deprived them of a large part of their territory, Numbers 21:26.
You are aware that Moab refused to let Israel pass through their country, and were so greatly impressed and alarmed by the multitude of the Israelites army that, along with Midian they sent for Balaam to curse it, Numbers 22-24.
Subsequently, Israel was enticed into idolatry and even intermarried with them. They were always hostile to Israel until King Saul subdued them, 1 Samuel 14:47.
Later they became tributary to David and succeeding Jewish Kings, 2 Samuel 8:2,12. But they finally joined Babylon against Judah, 2 Kings 24:2.
On several occasions, God pronounced judgments against them. See Isaiah 15:1-16; Jeremiah 48:1 47; Amos 2:1-3.
Therefore, if they can be so wicked to the extent that God pronounced judgment on them, then you must hate them with holy anger, and come out of evil attitude!
1. I silence all evil conspiracy against my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I silence all forms of hostility operating in my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. O Lord God, turn my enemies to my slave, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have A Beautiful Saturday!
