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!

Study 20 From The Book of
Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 28: 15-68
Verses 15-19 are in direct
contrast to verses 1-6. Thereafter the curses are described in five paragraphs,
which are somewhat similar in content: (1) verses 20:26; (2) verses 27-37; (3)
verses 38-44; verses 45-57; (5) verses 58-68.
1.Examine these five paragraphs,
noting their similarities. What are the
evils contained in these curses?
2.This chapter shows God’s people
brought under a judgement worse than any that has befallen a heathen nation. It
was fulfilled to some degree in the Assyrian and Babylonians captivates, but
mainly in the Fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, and the subsequent history of the
Jews. How does this emphasize the teaching that it is better not to begin to
seek God rather than subsequently to turn away?
Cf. Mt. 12:43-45; Heb. 2:1-4; 10:26-31; 2 Pet. 2:20-22.
Note. Verse 46. ‘A sign and a
wonder’: a sign of divine judgement, and a wonder causing astonishment.
