Blessing for Obedience
« on: March 20, 2013, 12:57:21 PM »
Leviticus 26-27 (Blessing for Obedience)

v.2 “You must keep my Sabbath days of rest and show reverence for my sanctuary. I am the Lord.”

The blessing:
8 Five of you will chase a hundred, and a hundred of you will chase ten thousand! All your enemies will fall beneath your sword.
9 “I will look favorably upon you, making you fertile and multiplying your people. And I will fulfill my covenant with you. 10 You will have such a surplus of crops that you will need to clear out the old grain to make room for the new harvest! 11 I will live among you, and I will not despise you. 12 I will walk among you; I will be your God, and you will be my people."


Such incredible favor and blessings. And all God asks is that His people not become idolaters; that they don’t set up their own little gods to worship. And that they obey Him carefully.

Severe punishment for disobedience: seven times disaster; ugly diseases, unyielding land and sky; defeat, a miserable existence even in exile

God does not take disobedience lightly.

Thank God that Jesus became the curse for us, and that we are no longer under that curse.
All the blessings of Abraham are for us as His precious children. ::smile::
In Him I live and move and have my being.

My determined purpose is that I may know Him - that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly."

It is by Grace we have been saved though Faith and not by works so that no one can boast.
