Default Day 60. Deuteronomy 28-30 - 11-05-2007, 05:45 PM

Deuteronomy 28-30

Today we get more of the third sermon of Moses to the people before they go over the river Jordan.

The lesson includes:
  • A blessing
  • A horrible curse
  • A warning not to follow other gods
  • More curses
  • A promise

Deuteronomy 28

1 And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:

2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.


Not some of his commandments, not a few of his commandments, not the ones that make sense today and skipping the other ones, but ALL his commandments.

IF thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD.

God sets forth his rule. He'll bless you IF you follow his law. He'll be more than happy to curse you if you don't.

If you do, you'll be blessed in the city and the field.

4 Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Ok, so we have meat trees in Deuteronomy 20:20, and we have fruit cows in Deuteronomy 28:4. PRAISE JESUS!!!

God will smite your enemies.

He'll make the people holy.

Everyone will be afraid of you.

He'll make it rain; and crops will grow.

He'll make you the leader among nations.

14 And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.

All for just following his simple 613 laws. How hard is that?

15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Cursed in the city and field.

Your fruit will be cursed.

Pestilence will stick with you.

The rain will instead be a dust storm.

You will be killed by your enemies.

28 The LORD shall smite thee with madness, and blindness, and astonishment of heart:

You'll take a wife and another man will go in unto her; you'll build a house and not lie in it; you'll plant a vineyard and not taste the wine or grapes.

Your kids will be taken.

Your crops will fail.

The stranger in the land will rise over you.

45 Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee:

The blessing took up 15 verses, so far, we have 30 verses in the curse. Shall we continue?

49 The LORD shall bring a nation against thee from far, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flieth; a nation whose tongue thou shalt not understand;

German? Roman? Persian? Arabic?

53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee:

You will become cannibals! You will eat your own children!

59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful, and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

Take that backsliders!

63 And it shall come to pass, that as the LORD rejoiced over you to do you good, and to multiply you; so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought; and ye shall be plucked from off the land whither thou goest to possess it.

Wait, what did that say? It said "so the LORD will rejoice over you to destroy you, and to bring you to nought"

If you turn your back on God, He will HAPPILY turn your life to crap! Where are the people who claim that God only does good things? Where was Jesus' footprints in the sand there? Maybe he was over at the picnic table having a cigarette, and he probably put it out on your forehead too!

66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:


That sounds like God can (and will) make your life hell. You'll wish the day was over, then you'll wish the night was over. God's like that when He gets angry with you.

Deuteronomy 29

Moses tells the people that they have seen the work of the Lord, but were pretty much to dumb to realize it.

He recounts that they haven't had to work for food, and their clothes didn't get old, and even though they wandered for 40 years, their shoes didn't wear out either.

Guess what, Moses then warns against following other gods.

18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the LORD our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;

God will kill him, and destroy the land, so others will look at the joos and remind them of how they displeased their god.

Deuteronomy 30

1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things are come upon thee, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before thee, and thou shalt call them to mind among all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath driven thee,

Then, you will probably come back to worshiping God, the way HE wants to be worshiped.

He'll bring you back together.

He'll give you back the land.

He'll curse your enemies.

He'll make the land prosper.

Moses tells the people that this commandment isn't far off; it's right with the people.

14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

BUT... again, other gods...

17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;


19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

20 That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.



The way it should be!

So what have we learned today?

1. Blessings take up way less time then curses. Moses (and God) could think of way more BAD things to do to the people, than they could think of ways to do good.
2. Meat comes from trees; fruit from kine.
3. If you don't worship God correctly, he'll make you eat your children.

I think you may have missed an important aspect of Our Lord's wonderful vengeance here.

53 And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the LORD thy God hath given thee, in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee: 54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate, his eye shall be evil toward his brother, and toward the wife of his bosom, and toward the remnant of his children which he shall leave:
55 So that he will not give to any of them of the flesh of his children whom he shall eat: because he hath nothing left him in the siege, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee in all thy gates.

A milder, softer deity might just curse someone "OK, you'll eat your children's flesh, but you'll have a bit left over to share with your brother, wife, and any surviving kids." That's not how Our Lord curses. When GOD curses you to eat your child's flesh, you eat all of it. No matter how much you may want to share your own child's meat with your brother/wife/any surviving kids, you won't be able to. You'll be condemned to act like a greedy Jew and hoard your own child's meat. God's harsh that way. Best not to get Him angry.


O Lord our God, help us to tear their soldiers to bloody shreds with our shells; help us to cover their smiling fields with the pale forms of their patriot dead; help us to drown the thunder of the guns with the shrieks of their wounded, writhing in pain; help us to lay waste their humble homes with a hurricane of fire; help us to wring the hearts of their unoffending widows with unavailing grief; help us to turn them out roofless with little children to wander unfriended the wastes of their desolated land in rags and hunger and thirst, sports of the sun flames of summer and the icy winds of winter, broken in spirit, worn with travail, imploring Thee for the refuge of the grave and denied it--for our sakes who adore Thee, Lord, blast their hopes, blight their lives, protract their bitter pilgrimage, make heavy their steps, water their way with their tears, stain the white snow with the blood of their wounded feet! We ask it, in the spirit of love, of Him Who is the Source of Love, and Who is the ever-faithful refuge and friend of all that are sore beset and seek His aid with humble and contrite hearts. Amen.


God being truth, justice, goodness, beauty, power, and life, man is falsehood, iniquity, evil, ugliness, impotence, and death. God being master, man is the slave. Incapable of finding justice, truth, and eternal life by his own effort, he can attain them only through a divine revelation... he who desires to worship God must harbor no childish illusions about the matter, but bravely renounce his liberty and humanity.

I wonder brother, would a vegetarian be able to eat of a fruit cow? Also, could they eat of the meat tree.

It's rather a conundrum.

If a vegetarian doesn't eat meat... I'm dizzy now.

Upon request I will cite scripture for all these facts in God's Holy Word.

✝ This is a Christian community and we worship GOD of the Holy bible, the only Living GOD. We worship Jesus Christ, Son of GOD and Savior. Anything else is absurd. ✝
