Deuteronomy 30 and Ephesians 1
God circumcises their heart after they repent in their captivity. In Ephesians we see the foreknowledge of God to bring His people to repentance so they enter into the same grace in the last days.
Deut 30:6-8 (KJV)
6And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.7And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.8And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
Deut 30:10-16 (KJV)
10If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.11For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.12It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?13Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?14But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.15See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;16In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
Deut 30:19-20 (KJV)
19I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:20That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
Eph 1:4-10 (KJV)
4According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:5Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,6To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.7In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;8Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;9Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:10That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

Deuteronomy 32 and Proverbs 2
These two chapters are about what brings apostasy and God’s judgment and the importance of humility in the fear of God and uprightness to be kept therefrom.
Deut 32:2-3 (KJV)
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.
Deut 32:15 (KJV)
15But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
Deut 32:20-21 (KJV)
20And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.21They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
Deut 32:29 (KJV)
29O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
Deut 32:43-44 (KJV)
43Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.44And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.
Deut 32:41-43 (KJV)
41If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.42I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.43Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
Prov 2:8-12 (KJV)
8He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.9Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path.10When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;11Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:12To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things;
Prov 2:21-22 (KJV)
21For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it.22But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

2nd Chronicles 23 and Acts 19
We see in these two chapters that the Kingdom of God is leaven which is hidden but spreads forth to eventually overcome the evil in a nation with righteousness and liberty.
2Chr 23:13-15 (KJV)
13And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason.14Then Jehoiada the priest brought out the captains of hundreds that were set over the host, and said unto them, Have her forth of the ranges: and whoso followeth her, let him be slain with the sword. For the priest said, Slay her not in the house of the LORD.15So they laid hands on her; and when she was come to the entering of the horse gate by the king’s house, they slew her there.
Acts 19:9-12 (KJV)
9But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus.10And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.11And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:12So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them.
Acts 19:18-20 (KJV)
18And many that believed came, and confessed, and shewed their deeds.19Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.20So mightily grew the word of God and prevailed.

1st Kings 19 and Deuteronomy 8
These two chapters have the common theme which is about forgetting God. In 1st Kings 19 the children of Israel had forgotten God to the point that they were worshiping Baal. They were not interested in hearing the still small voice of God but in a religion that fed their appetite of pride and self worship in the form of signs and wonders. So Elijah is used of God to show them who’s the true God that they forgot by the powerful sign and wonder of fire coming down from heaven to devour the sacrifice. Later in the chapter God is not in the fire and the wind that breaks the rocks but is in the still small voice that speaks to Elijah. In Deuteronomy 8 we see that forgetting God is related to the tendency to be at ease and become proud through material prosperity. Therefore the key to not forgetting God is to seek God and the humble oneself through prayer and even times of fasting in the midst of God’s blessing of material prosperity.
1Kgs 19:18 (KJV)
18Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
Deut 8:11-14 (KJV)
11Beware that thou forget not the LORD thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:12Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;13And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;14Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the LORD thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;
Deut 8:16-20 (KJV)
16Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;17And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.18But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.19And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the LORD thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.20As the nations which the LORD destroyeth before your face, so shall ye perish; because ye would not be obedient unto the voice of the LORD your God.

Psalms 108; Ezra 1 and Ephesians 4
This chapters point to the restoration of the temple of God, His bride church in the last days.
Ezra 1:3-4 (KJV)
3Who is there among you of all his people? his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and build the house of the LORD God of Israel, (he is the God,) which is in Jerusalem.4And whosoever remaineth in any place where he sojourneth, let the men of his place help him with silver, and with gold, and with goods, and with beasts, beside the freewill offering for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.
Ps 108:6-8 (KJV)
6That thy beloved may be delivered: save with thy right hand, and answer me.7God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.8Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;
Eph 4:3-7 (KJV)
3Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.4There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;5One Lord, one faith, one baptism,6One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.7But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

Revelations 21 and Psalms 82
Both of these chapters describe how God will inherit all nations in the coming of the kingdom of heaven.
In Psalm 82 it is shown that God stands in the gathering of the mighty which speaks of God standing in the midst of the government of each nation. He sees their blind and corrupt judgments and ultimately judges them for their corrupt blindness. First it will be exposed and then God will cause them to suffer the consequences of their gross iniquity. They will suffer death and destruction due to their choices and thus when their government is totally gone it will be replaced with the government of the one true eternal God through his people. In the book of Revelation 21 we see the nations of those that have been saved out of their nation walking in the light of God. They have found their ultimate fulfillment in the kingdom of heaven in fellowship with the one true eternal God.
Ps 82:1-2 (KJV)
1A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty; he judgeth among the gods.2How long will ye judge unjustly, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah.
Ps 82:3-8 (KJV)
3Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.4Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.5They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.6I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.7But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes.8Arise, O God, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Rev 21:23-24 (KJV)
23And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.24And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
Rev 21:26-27 (KJV)
26And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.27And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

Acts 7 and Jeremiah 16
The common theme between these 2 chapters is the condition of the heart that is set in rebellion against God to follow its own imagination and fulfill it. It takes God’s judgment and severity often onto terrible deaths to bring people finally recognize that God is the Ultimate Reality whose name is Yahweh. Until they choose to fear God which is to rightly from the heart recognize God for who God really is it only could be God they justify their own self delusions of worship.
Acts 7:35-36 (KJV)
35This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.36He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.
Acts 7:46-52 (KJV)
46Who found favour before God, and desired to find a tabernacle for the God of Jacob.47But Solomon built him an house.48Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet,49Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest?50Hath not my hand made all these things?51Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye.52Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
Jer 16:12-13 (KJV)
12And ye have done worse than your fathers; for, behold, ye walk every one after the imagination of his evil heart, that they may not hearken unto me:13Therefore will I cast you out of this land into a land that ye know not, neither ye nor your fathers; and there shall ye serve other gods day and night; where I will not shew you favour.
Jer 16:14-16 (KJV)
14Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;15But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers.16Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.
Jer 16:19-21 (KJV)
19O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.20Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?21Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.
