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).

Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
