Deuteronomy 30: 15-18

“See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, and to keep His commandments, His statutes, and His judgments, that you may live and multiply; and the Lord your God will bless you in the land which you go to possess. But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear, and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve them, I announce to you today that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to go in and possess.”


Moses pinpoints the choice – to love and obey God is life and good, to reject God is death and evil. If we choose to love God and obey His Word, we will enjoy all God’s blessings. If we refuse to love and obey Him, we will be severely and immediately punished. The message of salvation is plain and understandable.
