17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
This is out of the old testiment. This was years before Jesus hung on the cross. Now, when you look at the punishments man faced before Jesus died for our sins, it makes you realize how good we have it. Before Jesus, you would be stoned to death for the smallest sin. Now, we simply humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness. So, stop taking the grace and salvation that Jesus has given to us for granted because we could still be under the law.
