Sometimes the best foot forward turns out to be the same old yesterday. If God put the moon under your foot why does it dominate your head?
There is an eclipsed moon in the heavenly sign of Revelation 12 and people liked the dim moonlight of their tradition.
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. (12:1)
But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? Galatians 4:9
Luke 11:48 tells us that yesterday’s errors were with the proud people of New Testament times in Palestine.
So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their tombs.
Peter (2:2:22) puts in a knowing comment on this subject too. With all the evidence of Israelite progress why would anyone put any confidence in Moses and the prophets?
What the true proverb says has happened to them: The dog returns to its own vomit, and the sow, after washing herself, returns to wallow in the mire.
