Actor Nathaniel Buzolic recently shared a biblically inspired photo along with a powerful message about humanity’s “rebellion.”
Buzolic posted the image of Mount Gerizim, the biblical location where God renewed his covenant with the Israelites. In Deuteronomy 11:26-29 (NLT), God shares the significance of this mountain and His plan:
Look, today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse! You will be blessed if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today. But you will be cursed if you reject the commands of the Lord your God and turn away from him and worship gods you have not known before. When the Lord your God brings you into the land and helps you take possession of it, you must pronounce the blessing at Mount Gerizim and the curse at Mount Ebal.
Joshua 8 details how Joshua later built an altar to God on Mount Ebal and the Israelites then divided into two groups and assembled in front of both Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal.
Buzolic, commenting on these Scriptures, wrote in the Instagram caption that Mount Gerizim is known as the “mountain of the blessings.”
“When Joshua entered the land he was instructed to divide the 12 tribes in half. 6 tribes of the nation of Israel were instructed to stand on this mountain and recite the blessings provided by G-d,” “The Vampire Diaries” star wrote.
