Blessings and Cursings Still Current?
This post was made in reference to a comment posted to me concerning the video on WorldNetDaily by Richard Rives – JUST THE FACTS – dated November 11, 2014 “How Do You Know if You Know God?”
The question was what are the blessings and cursings of the Mosaic Covenant.
I noticed that you are calling God’s Covenant a Mosaic covenant.
It was God who gave Moses His holy laws, and the blessings / curses.
But to somewhat answer your question, you can read Leviticus 18 which lists many commandments that are still strongly adhered to by many Christians today (although that number is decreasing daily). God also lists His blessings and curses in Deuteronomy…which reflects Isaiah 24.
The first covenant – a,k.a. The Old Covenant – was fulfilled and finished.
It served its purpose as a placeholder until the Messiah, Jesus Christ came (the reformation).
“In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.”
“Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.”
