Blessings or cursings? Your choice.
Some think our lives are like a game of chance [cards], just luck of the draw. In other words, you have to play the hand you are dealt [no choice]. Not so, we get exactly what we ask for; as an individual or a nation. What we get is based on our own choices [2 Corinthians 5:10, Galatians 6:7]. This is a KJV Bible study guide.
All of us are told in scripture exactly what to expect based on our choices; blessings or cursings. Why act surprised? It's your choice and there is no third choice; therefore choose wisely. Read Leviticus chapter 26 as well.
Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Blessings.
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:
Deuteronomy 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. (“If” is a huge 2 letter word. Everything depends on your choice).
Deuteronomy 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. (This is one of the many commandments of God that our elected officials have broken many times over. They continually borrow from and depend on other nations instead of trusting in God and His blessings. It is getting worse by the minute each and every day. What happens to a nation that doesn’t hearken unto the one true God that has blessed them? We are witnessing the result of that today in 2022+. Read Deuteronomy 28:15-68 very carefully for your answer).
Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Curses.
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 over take thee,"
[“If thou shalt” and “if thou wilt not” are conditional. You have to choose one way or the other way; it takes decisive action on your part. See Jeremiah 17:5 and 7. Could this be the cause of the current pandemic of today (2020, 2021, 2022+)? Do all people hearken unto God at this present time? Just look around you; watch the daily news or read a newspaper for your obvious answer. The answer would be “NO”].
Deuteronomy 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;
Deuteronomy 28:59 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. (Covid-19 and Aids come to mind plus many others).
Deuteronomy 28:60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (This is another sign of the end times. Just watch the news today  and you can see for yourself. What used to be wrong is now considered to be right; legalizing gay marriage comes to mind).
Deuteronomy 31:29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands. (This is another very important verse in the book of Deuteronomy. Please study this entire chapter and chapter 32. It is quite obvious based on the above verse we are in the latter days right now).
These are just a few of the many verses concerning the last days and the beginnings of sorrows. God’s word applied to people in the past, it applies even to us today and will apply forever. The choices we make determine what we get, blessings or cursings; again, there is no third choice. If a nation or individual will not do what God tells them to do expect cursings to follow.
Study the Word of God completely. Find out what God asks of you, become a doer of the word, obey Him. You will receive blessings from Him. It is so simple! Don't allow God to be removed from your mind. Study His Word diligently [see 2 Timothy 2:15]. No one can prevent you from having the true word of God in your mind. No one!
There are people all over this planet, especially here in the U.S. in 2022+, that truly need to know and understand this to the best of their ability. True love is being told the truth from God’s word. What a person does with that truth after being exposed to it is between them and God. As an individual, make the right choice.
