Discussion for Deuteronomy 28

  • Ezekiel
    I think this chapter accurately describes the ancestors of today's so called African Americans and the Trans Atlantic slave trade. This chapter proves that the so called African Americans are the Hebrew Israelites of the bible.

    Verse 15 shows that we have to obey Jehovah's commands in order to receive his blessing and when we disobey those commands we will not receive his blessing and reap bitter consequences.
  • Mark
    God's word is completely true. Weather we believe it or not: you can see it in the history of blacks and Jews, and others. Both were enslaved because they completely turned their backs on God..not for a few years, but for generations.Some people say this group, or these people are oppressed. But they don't consider what God says, and with today's society, they have no clue that they can be cursed.
