Deuteronomy 7:12 “Then it shall come to pass, because you listen to these judgments, and keep and do them, that the LORD your God will keep with you the covenant and the mercy which He swore to your fathers.

 

~Who is he speaking to, Israel’s children only?

 

Numbers 15:15 ‘One ordinance shall be for you of the assembly and for the stranger who dwells with you, an ordinance forever throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.

 

Genesis 17:3-4 Then Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, saying: “As for me, behold, my covenant is with you, and you shall be a father of many nations.

 

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

 

~Not Israel only but fully inclusive. So then what are some of the blessings of obedience to the covenant?

 

Deuteronomy 7:13-16 “And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your land, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flock, in the land of which He swore to your fathers to give you. “You shall be blessed above all peoples; there shall not be a male or female barren among you or among your livestock. “And the LORD will take away from you all sickness, and will afflict you with none of the terrible diseases of Egypt which you have known, but will lay them on all those who hate you. “Also you shall destroy all the peoples whom the LORD your God delivers over to you; your eye shall have no pity on them; nor shall you serve their gods, for that will be a snare to you.

 

Deuteronomy 8:1 “Every commandment which I command you today you must be careful to observe, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers.

 

Deuteronomy 9:4&6 “Do not think in your heart, after the LORD your God has cast them out before you, saying, ‘Because of my righteousness the LORD has brought me in to possess this land’; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD is driving them out from before you. “Therefore understand that the LORD your God is not giving you this good land to possess because of your righteousness, for you are a stiff-necked people.

 

1 John 4:19 We love because he first loved us.

 

~Our covenant relationship with G-D is of his initiation, not because we have substance to offer. But this one thing we have, free choice. G-D himself gives us all things and has need of nothing from us because he can provide for himself everything but what he has given us authority over, ourselves. He also invites us to partner with him in the workings of his Kingdom.

 

Jerusalem Post: From the Talmud.

Berachot 33b): "Everything is in the hands of heaven except for fear of heaven (yirat shamayim)." Physical characteristics and even personality traits are all directed from above, but whether a person will be God-fearing is not dependent on the Almighty; we bear sole responsibility for whether we have yirat shamayim. 

 

Deuteronomy 10:12-13 “And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, “and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good?

 

Matthew 6:25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

 

Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
