CHASTISEMENT BY CHOICE - By Robert E. Hanna


Scripture Reading: Deuteronomy 11:26-28

From the beginning, God has offered to man a clear  choice between obedience and disobedience, reward and  punishment, faithfulness and faithlessness. As He instructed,  through Moses, the children of Israel regarding their promised  land and its acquisition through willing submission to His  stipulations, He spoke thus: "Behold, I set before you this day  a blessing and a curse; a blessing, if ye obey the  commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you  this day: and a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments  of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I  command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have  not known."

Plain enough! But God adds to the clarity of His  exhortations with warnings against temptation to sin. "If  there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and  giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder  come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go  after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us'  serve them; thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that  prophet, or that dreamer of dreams" (Deuteronomy 13:1- '  3a).'

We need not be led astray. Our safeguard is the Word of  God. If Eve had not heeded the voice ofthe tempter but had  faithfully obeyed the command of her Creator, what painful  consequences would have been avoided! Someone has said of  our society, "All we ever learn from history, is that we never  learn from history." How true is this of the man-God  relationship! But we have the answer: ''Thou wilt keep him in  perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee" (Isaiah 26:3).



How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
