Preparing the Way of the Lord

Deuteronomy 28 – 30

Deuteronomy 28

In this latter day, Israel [the Anglo Saxon peoples] and Judah are under the protection of God so that God may fulfill the promises he made to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. 

We have been given choice blessings and we have responded by filling our lands with abominations and great rebellion against the Word of our God. 

Therefore, hear the warnings of God as recorded by Moses.

At this moment there is a great regional war brewing in the Middle East.  God will give Israel and Judah one last victory!  After which [if they do not repent and turn from their sin] they will be taken into a new captivity, as soon as Peace and Safety is declared (1 Thess 5:3). 

 

The Blessings for Obedience to every Word of God  

We have been blessed and made the chief peoples on the earth for the past several hundred years.  Now God is preparing to correct Israel [The Anglo Saxon people] and Judah one last time in preparation for the coming of Messiah the Christ. 

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:

28:2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

28:3 Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

28:4 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.

28:5 Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

28:6 Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

28:7 The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.

28:8 The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

28:9 The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.

28:10 And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee.

28:11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

28:12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

28:13 And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:

28:14 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.

 

The curses for disobedience of the Word of God

The curses for disobedience, or compromising with any of God’s commandments; which are even now beginning to fall upon the New Covenant spiritual Israel and upon physical Israel [the Anglo Saxon peoples] and Judah, as a final warning; and which are about to climax with a final captivity after the coming LAST victory over our enemies in this dispensation. 

Once Islamic Extremism in the Middle East is crushed and a regional peace deal is achieved; a man will be set up in the Vatican doing miracles, and when he goes to the Holy Place about 75 days after being set up, the captivity of our people will begin with the occupation of Jerusalem and will spread from there to all of Judah and will include the decline of the Anglo Saxon peoples over 42 months. 

Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 prophetic 30 day months or 1260 days]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

This is a long list of the horrors that will come upon us for the overspreading of our many abominations; which curses are already beginning. 

Deuteronomy 28:15 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:

28:16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

28:17 Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store [harvest and storage].

28:18 Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

28:19 Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

28:20 The LORD shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

28:21 The LORD shall make the pestilence cleave unto thee, until he have consumed thee from off the land, whither thou goest to possess it.

28:22 The LORD shall smite thee with a consumption [wasting away], and with a fever, and with an inflammation, and with an extreme burning, and with the sword, and with blasting, and with mildew; and they shall pursue thee until thou perish.

28:23 And thy heaven that is over thy head shall be brass, and the earth that is under thee shall be iron.

28:24 The LORD shall make the rain of thy land powder and dust: from heaven shall it come down upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

28:25 The LORD shall cause thee to be smitten before thine enemies: thou shalt go out one way against them, and flee seven ways before them: and shalt be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth.

28:26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away.

28:27 The LORD will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed.

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

28:29 And thou shalt grope at noonday [in confusion of mind], as the blind gropeth in darkness, and thou shalt not prosper in thy ways: and thou shalt be only oppressed and spoiled evermore, and no man shall save thee.

28:30 Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

28:31 Thine ox shall be slain before thine eyes, and thou shalt not eat thereof: thine ass shall be violently taken away from before thy face, and shall not be restored to thee: thy sheep shall be given unto thine enemies, and thou shalt have none to rescue them.

28:32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand.

28:33 The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:

28:34 So that thou shalt be mad for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

28:35 The LORD shall smite thee in the knees, and in the legs, with a sore botch that cannot be healed, from the sole of thy foot unto the top of thy head.

28:36 The LORD shall bring thee, and thy king which thou shalt set over thee, unto a nation which neither thou nor thy fathers have known; and there shalt thou serve other gods, wood and stone.

28:37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.

28:38 Thou shalt carry much seed out into the field, and shalt gather but little in; for the locust shall consume it.

28:39 Thou shalt plant vineyards, and dress them, but shalt neither drink of the wine, nor gather the grapes; for the worms shall eat them.

28:40 Thou shalt have olive trees throughout all thy coasts, but thou shalt not anoint thyself with the oil; for thine olive shall cast his fruit.

28:41 Thou shalt beget sons and daughters, but thou shalt not enjoy them; for they shall go into captivity.

28:42 All thy trees and fruit of thy land shall the locust consume.

28:43 The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high; and thou shalt come down very low.

28:44 He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head, and thou shalt be the tail.

28:45 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:

28:46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever.

28:47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things; 

Because we will not zealously serve God during the abundance of God’s blessings, we shall be given over to this curse of severe correction to humble us.

28:48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the LORD shall send against thee, in hunger, and in thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until he have destroyed thee.

28:49 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;

28:50 A nation of fierce countenance, which shall not regard the person of the old, nor shew favour to the young:

28:51 And he shall eat the fruit of thy cattle, and the fruit of thy land, until thou be destroyed: which also shall not leave thee either corn, wine, or oil, or the increase of thy kine, or flocks of thy sheep, until he have destroyed thee.

28:52 And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fenced walls come down, wherein thou trustedst, throughout all thy land: and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.

28:53 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:

28:54 So that the man that is tender among you, and very delicate [meek and timid], 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:

28:55 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.

28:56 The tender and delicate woman among you, which would not adventure to set the sole of her foot upon the ground for delicateness and tenderness, her eye shall be evil toward the husband of her bosom, and toward her son, and toward her daughter,

28:57 And toward her young one that cometh out from between her feet, and toward her children which she shall bear: for she shall eat them for want of all things secretly in the siege and straitness, wherewith thine enemy shall distress thee in thy gates.

28:58 If thou wilt not observe to do all the words of this law that are written in this book, that thou mayest fear this glorious and fearful name, THE LORD THY GOD;

28:59 Then the LORD will make thy plagues wonderful [great], and the plagues of thy seed, even great plagues, and of long continuance, and sore sicknesses, and of long continuance.

28:60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.

28:61 Also every sickness, and every plague, which is not written in the book of this law, them will the LORD bring upon thee, until thou be destroyed.

28:62 And ye shall be left few in number, whereas ye were as the stars of heaven for multitude; because thou wouldest not obey the voice of the LORD thy God.

 

A final captivity

28:63 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.

28:64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

28:65 And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest: but the LORD shall give thee there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind:

28:66 And thy life shall hang in doubt before thee; and thou shalt fear day and night, and shalt have none assurance of thy life:

28:67 In the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.

28:68 And the LORD shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee, Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and bondwomen, and no man shall buy you.

Right now the nations of Israel, both physical and spiritual, think obedience to God is a little thing. Today the Israelite nations of the Judaeo Anglo Saxon peoples [including spiritual Israel] are immersed wholeheartedly in sin and are about to receive God’s just correction in its fullness.

Today’s spiritual Ekklesia continues to idolize men and false traditions;  strangely counting their espousal to Christ as meaning that they are to obey lovers [idols of men] who claim to come in his name, rather than to keep their commitment to obey their God and to live by every Word of God.

Today’s brethren are relying on their false traditions and corporate idols of men, instead of living by every Word of God. 

Today’s  Ekklesia of the New Covenant called out, is now facing the strong correction that Moses warned us of and that Christ warned us of in Revelation 3:14-22.

 

Deuteronomy 29

Moses recites more history and exhorts obedience to God

Deuteronomy 29:1 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.

29:2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;

29:3 The great temptations [miraculous wonders] which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:

God reveals to Moses the need for a New and better Covenant as is later promised in Jeremiah 31:31 and Ezekiel 36: 24.  Once Judah and Israel [the Anglo Saxon peoples] have been humbled in the final correction and are made ready to live by every Word of God; Messiah the Christ will come and deliver us.

Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

36:26  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

36:27  And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

36:28  And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

36:29  I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

Deuteronomy 29:4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day [the day this was written].

 

The forty years in the wilderness

29:5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.

29:6 Ye have not eaten [your own bread, but you ate manna] bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

29:7 And when ye came unto this place [Bashan (Golan); north of Moab on the east side of the Jordan river], Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them:

29:8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.

29:9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.

Remember that Moses is speaking just before his death and is rehearsing the history of Israel from the Exodus until they were ready to actually enter the land.

At this point Moses tells the people that their fathers did not enter the land forty years previously, because of unbelief and disobedience, even though they were in a Covenant with God.

He then tells the people that God is renewing the Mosaic Covenant that he had made with them at Sinai, and just before they go to enter the land Moses makes it clear that if they turn away like their fathers did, they will be removed from the land: Possession of the Promised Land is absolutely contingent upon faithful obedience to their Covenant to live by every Word of God.

This very same thing is true of the New Covenant called out of spiritual Israel.  Our entry into eternal life and receiving the promises of God, is absolutely contingent on our faithful obedience to God our Father in heaven and to our New Covenant Husband.  

God does not take spiritual adultery and a faithless wife lightly: He is a jealous God and will NOT tolerate the sin of doing what men and organizations say, above doing what he says.

If we turn back into spiritual Egypt and slavery to Satan the god-king of worldliness and wickedness:  We shall surely be rejected, as were all those who sought to return to Egypt.

29:10 Ye stand this day all of you before the LORD your God; your captains of your tribes, your elders, and your officers, with all the men of Israel,

29:11 Your little ones, your wives, and thy stranger that is in thy camp, from the hewer of thy wood unto the drawer of thy water:

29:12 That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the LORD thy God, and into his oath, which the LORD thy God maketh with thee this day:

29:13 That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.

29:14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;

29:15 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the LORD our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:

29:16 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by;

29:17 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)

29:18 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;

Even if we deceive ourselves that this will not fall on us because we are such good folk in our own eyes and are called by the name of God’s People; these things will still surely come upon us if we are zealous for our own ways above any zeal to learn and to passionately live by every Word of God.

29:19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness [intoxication with pride] to thirst [the lack of the waters of God’s Spirit, and the Word of God]:

29:20 The LORD will not spare him, but then the anger of the LORD and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the LORD shall blot out his name from under heaven.

29:21 And the LORD shall separate him unto evil out of all the tribes of Israel, according to all the curses of the covenant that are written in this book of the law:

29:22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it;

29:23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:

29:24 Even all nations shall say, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this land? what meaneth the heat of this great anger?

Brethren, we, the spiritually called out of the New Covenant; have turned away from God our Father and from the Husband of our baptismal espousal to follow idols of men. 

It is because of our great zeal to blindly obey our corporate gods, our idols of men and our false traditions; and our great LACK of zeal to follow and obey God our Father and the Husband of our baptismal commitment to live by every Word of God: that we will be rejected by Messiah the Christ (Rev 3:14-22) and cast into great tribulation, in the hope that by afflicting the flesh, God might perhaps save us spiritually.

29:25 Then men shall say, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them forth out of the land of Egypt:

29:26 For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them:

29:27 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book:

29:28 And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.

29:29 The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.

 

Deuteronomy 30

The compassion of God at the sincere repentance of the people after their humbling correction in this latter day will bring Messiah the Christ to rule all nations and teach them the way to peace with each other and reconciliation with the God the Holy Father in heaven!

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,

30:2 And shalt return unto the LORD thy God, and shalt obey his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul;

30:3 That then the LORD thy God will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither the LORD thy God hath scattered thee.

30:4 If any of thine be driven out unto the outmost parts of heaven, from thence will the LORD thy God gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee:

30:5 And the LORD thy God will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers.

Below is the New Covenant prophesied by Moses and which was later prophesied in Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36.

30:6 And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live.

30:7 And the LORD thy God will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee.

30:8 And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.

30:9 And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:

This New Covenant is also conditional upon obedience to every Word of God.

God will save his wayward people of physical Israel and Judah and God will save all humanity by turning our hearts from stone to flesh and writing his law on their hearts, which will be softened by the addition of his Holy Spirit as it is written in Joel 2:28.    

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;

Deuteronomy 30:10 If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.

If we commit to diligently living by every Word of God, we shall be given the Holy Spirit of God which will enable us to keep the Word of God. 

30:11 For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.

30:12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

30:13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?

30:14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.

Possession of the physical Promised Land is absolutely CONDITIONAL on our obedience to every Word of God!  Therefore lawbreakers WILL BE DRIVEN OFF THE LAND!

This practical physical driving out of the wicked, is an allegory of the possession of the spiritual Promised Land of eternal life, which is also absolutely CONDITIONAL on our passionate love for God and our diligent obedience to live by every Word of God!

30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;

30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.

30:17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;

30:18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.

God through Moses set before the people a choice to obey and live, or to turn away from godliness unto death.

The choice was theirs: Today the choice is ours. Will we turn back to our God in diligent, faithful, zealous, passionate, obedient enthusiasm to live by every Word of God; or will we choose the easy way of wickedness that leads to our correction and the destruction of the unrepentant?

30:19 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:

30:20 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.
