SPECIAL TOPIC: YHWH'S GRACE ACTS TO ISRAEL

It must be stated clearly that the Exodus, the Wilderness Wandering, and the Conquest were grace acts on YHWH's part, not merited rewards due to Israel's actions:

1. It was YHWH's love for "the fathers" – Deut. 4:37-38; 7:8; 10:15

2. It was not Israel's number – Deut. 7:7

3. It was not Israel's strength and power – Deut. 8:17

4. It was not Israel's righteousness or uprightness – Deut. 9:5-6

5. YHWH continues to love Israel even amidst judgment – Jer. 31:3
