The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways.
God gave the promise that He would establish a people unto Himself, if they would obey His commandments and walk in His ways. Because of Christ, He has established us as His people with the same requirements – we are to be obedient and walk in His ways.
And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.
Moses stated that if the children of Israel wanted the blessings of God, they were to be obedient to Him. This applies to believers as well, if we want to experience all that God has for us, we must be obedient.
And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.
When we are faithful to God, He will bless us with abundance, health, and victory. He is faithful to bless and we are to be faithful in trusting, honoring, and glorifying Him with our lives.
Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
God commands us to be separated to Him and we show that we are by being obedient to His commandments, ordinances, and judgments. If we desire to receive God’s blessings, then we need to be obedient.
Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
God desires for us to be in the right moral condition, so we are to live in a way that would bring Him glory and honor. When we do, we can have the assurance of God’s blessings.
Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever.
If we make a habit of obeying God, He promises us that all we do will “go well” with us. God gave us His commandments for us to follow, so that we can avoid His judgments.
And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
When we serve God, He promises to provide for our every need – spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically. God gives all we need, exactly when we need it.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
John wrote what eternity would be like, there will be perfect sinlessness, perfect government, perfect service, perfect fellowship, perfect resemblance, perfect blessedness, and perfect glory. Even if none of what John wrote about comes to pass, just knowing that Jesus will be there will be perfect enough.
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
The curse that mankind has been under since the fall in the Garden will be finally broken. In the new heaven and new earth, there will be perfect sinlessness, perfect government, and perfect service. As we look forward to this day, we should lift up our voice and cry, “surely come quickly, Lord Jesus”.
