“The door of destruction”
Eph 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
Norley Tran – Everything heaven itself enjoys!
OBEDIENCE DOESN’T EARN BLESSINGS IT RELEASES THEM.
DISOBEDIENCE WILL CUT YOU OFF FROM THE BLESSINGS.
“I’M SUPPOSED TO BE BLESSED!
Ps 34:8 “O Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is the man that trusts in Him.”
1Cor. 10:1 For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 2 And all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 3 And all ate the same spiritual food;
4 And all drank the same spiritual drink, for they were drinking from a spiritual rock which followed them; and the rock was Christ. 5 Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; For they were laid low in the wilderness. 6 Now these things happened as examples for us, that we should not crave evil things, as they also craved.
7 And do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, (EX 32:6) “The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play.”
8 Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day.
9 Nor let us try the lord, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the serpents. (numbers 21)
10 Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.
THE NEW TESTAMENT REVEALS WHO DESTROYED THEM.
WHEN YOU STOP LISTENING TO GOD AND CONTINUE IN A WRONG ATTITUDE YOU’RE OPENING THE DOOR TO DESTRUCTION.
DISOBEDIENCE OPENS THE DOOR TO DESTRUCTION.
11 Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.
WE SHOULD UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT THE ENEMY’S TACTICS THAN ANY OTHER GENERATION.
THE ROAD TO DESTRUCTION IS WIDE – THE WAY TO LIFE IS NARROW.
12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
13 No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, that you may be able to endure it.
ALL THESE BLESSINGS OF DEUT 28 HINGE ON VS 2
2 “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you will obey the Lord your God.
IF YOU OBEY YOU’RE BLESSED, IF YOU DON’T YOU’RE CURSED
EXODUS 15:26 And he said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in his sight, and give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put (not allow) none of the diseases on you which I have put (allowed) on the Egyptians; For I, the Lord, am your Healer (JEHOVAH RAPHA).”
