The book of Leviticus deals with how Israel was to worship God, the order of the priesthood, the required sacrifices, various sins and their consequences. Chapter 26 gives Gods assured blessings if Israel will obey, and His assured curses if they rebel. Those curses are found in verses 14-39.
Dake is very observant in his reference Bible concerning Israel’s rebellion and God’s judgments as stated in the text. The reader should pay close attention to the judgments and their fulfillment. These five are a prophecy of Israel’s future successive judgments up to the Day of the Lord, or the Tribulation.
In this article, we give the references to the five judgments. 1. Lev. 26:14-17. 2. Lev. 26:18-20. 3. Lev. 26:21-22. 4. Lev. 26:23-26. 5. Lev. 26:27-39. One would think that Israel would look back to their prophetic history and learn. Perhaps they will in the fifth and final one. To the believer, the fulfillment of these five prophecies, not only adds credibility to the Scriptures, but they increase the faith he already has in God’s Word!
We will deal with each curse and its place in time in following articles. Each will be numbered so the reader will not miss any of them. However, we will take the liberty to add unrelated articles about other issues along the way.
