    Deuteronomy 28 is the Chapter that tells us if the blessings and curses that will be upon us when we obey it disobey the laws and commandments of God.

    I real enjoyed reading Deuteronomy chapter 28 it brought out in me joy at the being than sorrow or pity because it's a shame that a person would choose darkness over the light of The Lord God that has so much to give and ask little in thought.I perfer to be with JESUS. AMEN

    One of the heaviest chapters in the whole Bible. Serving other deities, graven images of wood and stone, and being destroyed as a people.
  • Felicia
    It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God Heb 10:13. Thank you Lord Jesus for coming to save us for the latter part of Deu 28 is fearful indeed Verse 47 indicates that it is not enough for us to serve God but the manner of service is even more critical. We are saved to serve and we must serve joyfully and with all our hearts. I pray Lord that we will take God's seriously Amen
  • A disciple
    Hi Bruce; If that's how it was for you, I rejoice with you. My experience went somewhat different however from yours; but I know that there was joy in the presence of the angels over this sinner that repented! I haven't kept any day for a memorial, or as special; and I stay away generally from holidays or religious tokens; but have my religion in practical application of the Spirit led life.
