Our Scripture Reading is the opening paragraph of the account of Jacob’s interaction with the people in Canaan, sometimes referred to in Bible headings as “The Defiling of Dinah” (rape by a non-white). It is another example illustrating the racial context of the Bible. In this series, we are comparing Critical Race Theory with Biblical Race Theory, in an attempt to convince many good people that the current trend of race-mixing and miscegenation in America is against God’s Word; and actually helps our ancient foe.

This psalm (Psalm 90) was written by Moses and was called a prayer. It is supposed that this psalm was penned upon occasion of the sentence passed upon Israel in the wilderness for their unbelief.
They were punished for all their unbelief, murmuring and rebellion that their carcasses should fall (all those over 20 years old) and be buried in the wilderness.
That they should be wasted away by a series of miseries for thirty-eight years together.
And that none of them that were then of age (20 years and older) should enter Canaan.
What if we were living at this time? Suppose we were thirty years old when the punishment was explained to us by Almighty God that we would not be allowed to go into the Promise Land. Everyone over the age of 20 years old, except for the faithful two Israelite spies, Caleb and Joshua, would spend the next 38 years being buried in the wilderness. We would just wander around till the 38 years ended and all of us had died. How depressing would that time period be? Would we need something to help us get though this long time? We couldn’t enter the Promise Land, we just had to wait and wait and wait. How depressing. Moses’ second song was written for this purpose.
