Discussion for Deuteronomy 28

  • Carl
    Deuteronomy 28 speaks of both blessings and curses. Most people that want the blessings of Yehovah never consider the curses that are the coincidence of sin and disobedience to His Law. As far as who and what color of the chosen of God as the Messiah said to the people telling Him His mother and brothers wanted to speak with Him, His words were, "Who is My mother and my brother, I tell you those that do the will of My Father are My brother and My mother". Also there were many more than just Hebrews that left Egypt and sided with them for the exodus from Egypt that placed themselves under the covenant of Elohim that are all a part of the whole story. Read the whole story. Blessings to you all!

    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.
