There are laws for entire mankind which are a super set for the laws of Moses and the New Covenant. God expects all nations to follow these as a basic requirement. These are not just part of Mosaic law but every nation on earth must follow them if they want live in their own lands. For easy identification, we will refer them as ‘Universal Law’.
Here we will look into the sins which are part of this Universal Law that will cause a land to vomit it’s inhabitants, either pagan or Christian.
None of you shall approach anyone who is near of kin to him, to uncover his nakedness: I am the LORD. The nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover. She is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. The nakedness of your father’s wife you shall not uncover; it is your father’s nakedness. The nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father, or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or elsewhere, their nakedness you shall not uncover. The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for theirs is your own nakedness. The nakedness of your father’s wife’s daughter, begotten by your father–she is your sister–you shall not uncover her nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s sister; she is near of kin to your father. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister, for she is near of kin to your mother. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s brother. You shall not approach his wife; she is your aunt. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter-in-law–she is your son’s wife–you shall not uncover her nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother’s wife; it is your brother’s nakedness. You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, nor shall you take her son’s daughter or her daughter’s daughter, to uncover her nakedness. They are near of kin to her. It is wickedness. Lev 18:6-17
Incest is a grave sin. Bible gives a detailed near of kin list who are not supposed to be married. In other words, except cousin marriages, all other near of kin marriages within a family are incest. If a nation commits incest, the land will vomit it’s inhabitants out.
Marrying Multiple Sisters
Nor shall you take a woman as a rival to her sister, to uncover her nakedness while the other is alive. Lev 18:18
If a man married two or more sisters from a same family it is against God. If a nation actively participates in allowing men to marry multiple sisters of same family, then the land will vomit it’s inhabitants out.
Sex during Mensuration
Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. Lev 18:19
It is forbidden to have sex when his wife is in her periods. If the people of a nation does this thing, they will be vomited out.
Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. Lev 18:20
Adultery is a grave sin. If people participate in adultery, the land they live in will vomit them out.
Killing Own Children
And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech. nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD. Lev 18:21
Whether it s an ancient practice of child sacrifice or modern practice of abortion, killing their own child will cause the land to vomit those inhabitants.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Lev 18:22
Just as in the days of Noah where sons of God went after strange flesh and as in the days of Sodom where homosexuality is widely practiced, today, the nations who once sent missionaries had become Sodom themselves ready to be overthrown and vomited by the land.
Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. Lev 18:23
Bestiality is a grave sin. If people participate in bestiality, the land they live in will vomit them out.
Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. Lev 18:24-25
If you carefully notice, not all sins are included in this list. For example, idolatry is not included. While Idolatry is still a sin, it neither causes the land to vomit it’s inhabitants nor God casts them out.
What is Vomiting?
Lev 18:26-28 ‘You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
The Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites were killed, destroyed and invaded by Israel. The land of Canaan was defiled by the children of Canaan and the land vomited them out. Vomiting could mean, a nation being invaded, people moving out as asylum seeks, refugees, slaves, prisoners etc. It can either result from another nation or power or through natural disasters.
Gen 15:16 “But in the fourth generation they shall return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.”
The following are to be avoided under Universal Laws for all nations, and if any group of people disobeys, the land which they live will be defiled and it will vomit them out.
- Marrying Multiple Sisters
- Sex during Mensuration
- Killing own Children
These 7 laws are required to be followed by any group of people, either Christian or pagan, so that he can dwell safely in his land.
