Deuteronomy 30:19-20

Choose Blessing or Cursing Today


Deuteronomy 30:19-20 I call heaven and earth to witness against you today that I have set before you life and death the blessing and the curse so choose life in order that you may live you and your descendants by loving the LORD your God by obeying his voice by holding fast to Him for this is your life and the length of your days that you may live in the land which the LORD your God swore to your fathers to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to give them Shabbat Shalom it’s wonderful to be celebrating a Shabbat day again today and this scripture we usually use to talk about blessing other people today the LORD spoke to me that the main thing I was to emphasize is on choosing to receive blessing or cursing in my own life I can either receive the blessing that was purchased for me by the blood of Jesus the Messiah or I can reject that and experience the cursing that would come upon me through my own selfishness through my own sin we read here that we have an opportunity for blessing or cursing we can receive blessing or cursing we can extend blessing or cursing to other people and God is saying to us today blessing is much better I highly recommend it and he said the way that blessing comes is by loving the LORD your God and obeying his voice and holding fast to Him everyone of us are deficient in that area I’m sure if you think about it you’ll find yourself deficient in truly loving God the way that you should in obeying his commandments and seeking Him but here’s the good news Jesus the Messiah obeyed Him perfectly Jesus the Messiah loved him perfectly did everything right 100% followed Torah and because of that He made a covenant that we get to be grafted in to and because of His obedience we get to receive the blessing that comes through that there’s two systems of government satan uses a system to govern people and God use a totally different one we can use either one in our family but satan’s system is what I call the system of control it is using force manipulation, threats to force people to do satan’s will in satan’s system there’s only one will I’m the father I’m the boss I’m the president I’m the pastor whatever it is everybody obeys me there’s only one will here you obey me or I’ll threaten you I’ll take your value or I’ll kill you or I’ll destroy you that’s satan’s system manipulate, force, control there’s only one will we don’t acknowledge the will of anybody else God never uses that God’s system is what I call the exercise of authority which is God offers choices with consequences choice A choice B but there’s a consequence to each but I will honor your will God says you get to choose choice A choice B but I will honor your will and there’s a consequence to each that’s exactly what’s expressed here in Deuteronomy 30:19 I set before you today life death blessing and the curse but you choose and I’ll honor your will the fact of the matter is God doesn’t force anybody to receive payment for their sin by the blood of Yeshua no he gives everybody a choice God says to everyone of us you’re separated eternally from me by your sin that’s a serious thing but here’s good news Yeshua my son died to pay for your sin now you have a choice receive his payment and receive the blessing and live eternally with me with your sin forgiven or reject the payment made by Yeshua reject his covenant remain in your sin insist on paying for your own sin and the consequence of rejecting the blood of Messiah is that yes you’ll spend eternity separated from God in hell it’s your choice you get to choose and God doesn’t force anybody God isn’t angry with people who reject Messiah He weeps for them and He says I implore you choose life choose the blessing it’s much better but it’s your choice every one of us have an opportunity to either choose to receive Messiah or reject Messiah you can let him pay for your sin and enter into covenant with Him or pay for your own sin and be eternally separated from God that’s the choice every one of us have we read today in this Torah portion it says I’ve set before you life and death the blessing and the curse so choose life and you can do that because Yeshua obeyed everything 100% so I just pray for you today if you’ve never received Jesus as your Messiah if you’ve never said yes I want you to pay for my sin I want to pray for you to do that today you have a choice you either pay for your own sin and some people are busy flogging themselves trying to pay for their own sin for their own mistakes you can never pay for that there’s only one opportunity to eliminate the guilt of sin and that is let the blood of Jesus the Messiah be enough so if you’ve never prayed that prayer to let Jesus pay for your sin would you just speak these words with me and I encourage you even if you’ve prayed this before and you’ve received Him as Messiah just speak these words again as an affirmation of entering or an affirmation of your covenant with Him so it might be the first time or you’ve prayed it many times but let’s pray this Father God I acknowledge today I cannot pay for my own sin mistakes and failures I thank you that Jesus Yeshua the Messiah paid for me and today I choose blessing I choose life I ask you to forgive me for all of my sin and I allow the blood of Yeshua Messiah to be enough I receive eternal life I receive forgiveness for my sin I give you the rest of my life make me the person you want me to be in the mighty name of Yeshua Messiah Amen
