This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Search The Scriptures —Study 19 — Deuteronomy 27: 1-28:14
Study 1 9 From The Book of Deuteronomy
is: Deuteronomy 27: 1-28:14
What ways does God use, through His servants, Moses, the
elders and the priests, to impress upon His people how absolutely He
requires obedience to all the laws of chapters 5:26?
What abiding principles emerge from chapter 27 concerning (a)
the authority of ministers to pronounce judgment on sinners in God’s name
(cf. 1 Tim. 5:20; Tit. 1:13; 2:15), and (b) the failure of the law to
bring life? E.g., although Israel literally obeyed verses 2-8 (see Jos.
8:30-35), they soon broke the other laws. Cf. Rom. 8:2-4; Gal. 3:10-12.
Contrast the nature of the blessings of 28:1-14 with the New
Testament phrase ‘every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places’ (Eph.
1:3). What difference between the old and new covenants is here indicated?
To what extent do the promises of
Dt. 28:1-14 still apply to us?
Note. 27:15-26. Note that
the offences mentioned here are mainly such as might escape the detection and
punishment of courts of law.
