Do you want PROTECTION during these times?
Pastor Mark brought out the power of obedience to the ordinances, or Law, given by the Lord. We can look at city streets in America and all over the world right now and see the result of lawlessness. When the laws are disregarded, people and property get hurt and destroyed.
Even man’s laws are meant to protect!
How much more the Law of G-d!
The result of obedience to G-d’s Law is PROTECTION from the “serpents” and “vipers” who represent the people of evil and wicked leaders.
Deuteronomy 7:12 And it shall come to pass, because you hearken to these ordinances and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep with thee the covenant and the mercy which He swore unto thy fathers.
1. What does it mean to “hearken”?
2. When we hearken, keep and do the ordinances of the Lord, what will He do?
3. Why is this so encouraging?
Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
1. How does the language used in the above verse tell you how Yeshua felt about wicked people?
Malachi 4:1-4 For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, when all the arrogant and all evildoers will be stubble. The day that is coming shall set them ablaze, says the Lord of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch, but for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. And you shall tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet, on the day when I act, says the Lord of hosts. Remember the law of my servant Moses, the statutes and rules that I commanded him at Horeb for all Israel.
1. List all the blessings coming to those who remember the law commanded by the Lord.
OBEDIENCE TO GOD’S LAW GIVES AMAZING GRACE AND
