Moses speaks to all the people before him that today is a day that he sets before you a blessing and a curse. Moses said that you would receive the blessing if you obey the commandments of the LORD your God, that he (Moses) has commanded you today, from the word of God. Moses had a word from God.

Like in the past two memorials Parsha’s Moses said, “I am talking to you this day, to see if you will obey the commandments of the LORD Your God, when God gave the first set of the Ten Commandments, the Torah: the Ark of the Covenant. (Exodus 20:6; Deuteronomy 27:11-12; and Deuteronomy 28:1-14). Moses said that it shall come to pads, that when the LORD Your God has brought into the Promised Land that you shall go into the land that God gave you: you shall possess and dwell in the Promised Land. (Deuteronomy 11:30-31 and Leviticus 26:3). Moses said the blessings will be upon mount Gerzim, and then there will also be the curse upon mount Ebal. (Deuteronomy 27:9-10). The Gospel, Jesus taught that the miracles performed in you are important to remain in you, this day. (Matthew 11:20-24).

Now Moses said the curse will be set before you if you will not obey all the commandments that I have taught; that if you turn aside and go out of way to disobey the commandments taught by the handoff Moses has taught you today. Then Moses encouraged the people not to go after any unknown gods: idolatry. Basically Moses is saying that you have to put your trust in Him, a God that you know his wrath, his blessings, his indignation, his promises, and his law. (Deuteronomy 28:15-68; Deuteronomy 2:1-26; and Deuteronomy 5:32).

The blessings, as well as the curse can be a reality to you. In the case with Moses, they were on the side of Jordan – in the land of Canaan. True to Moses prophecy, mount Ebal can be a curse, it is on the other side. In the recent news cast and the resumed war with Lebanon and the continued shellings that don’t sound or look anything like cease fire.  Nevertheless Moses said you shall pass over the Jordan to go into possess the land that the LORD Your God has given you, to possess the land and to dwell in the land.  Moses said, after you possess the land and dwell in the land that you shall also do all the statutes and judgments that are set before you to promote peace, harmony, rest, success and joy, this day (Deuteronomy 5:30-31).

After Moses commands the half tribe of Manasseh, the tribe of Gad, the tribe of Reuben to take the land and possess it, and dwell in the land; which is a land that the LORD care for, looks after and gave out of the hand of the two Amorite Kings.  Then only the king of Bashan had remained, a remnant of the giants (in present day Lebanon during Jesus time it was called Sidon and Tyre).  Not only was he a giant psychologically, but he was physically very large, taller than 7 or 9 feet in height.  Nevertheless Moses commands the children of this generation, specifically saying that today that the half tribe of Manasseh shall possess and dwelling Gilead, as commanded by God.  The Moses commands that the LORD Your God has already given you the land of the two Amorite Kings, which were used as cities of refuge (Deuteronomy 3:8-10).  However, Reuben and the tribe of God, possess and dwelled in the remained of Gilead, at the border of the Ammonites, even unto the River of Jabbok. (Deuteronomy 3:12-17).

5 Amorite Kings Fall

 The predecessor to Babylon

The word of God, Moses law, prophetically blesses the obedient children of Israel in the promise land, and where ever they go so that it may go well.  However there are curses that will prevail if you are disobedient to the commandments and statutes that were taught by Moses, that are set before you this day. (See Parsha Devarim and Parsha Va’etchanan; Deuteronomy 6:2,24; Deuteronomy5:3,24; Deuteronomy 7:11; Deuteronomy 4:20,38,39).  In this Memorial Parsha, Re’eh more than ever we know that God does not need an Evangelist to bring you in the nation of Israel, the promise land. Throughout the word God constantly says that “I will bring you to this land, you shall go into this land and possess and dwell.” So now we know that God wrote the two tablets, and that God will bring his people anywhere he needs to go and God operates out of free will so if it is not in your heart then don’t worry about it. As for me I am used to be told no, rejected and not helped at all. God is sovereign and He does not need anyone in to bring you out of the nations iron furnace i.e. genocide. Yet so many people don’t believe anything or believe nothing. On the contrast, Moses goes onto to say that you are chose to be a people unto the LORD Your God. (Deuteronomy 4:20); because God loved your forefathers; He (God) chose the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the seed after them (Deuteronomy 4:38 and Deuteronomy 7:11).  Yes, even the saints, the elders of Israel, the Patriarchs’ and all the Prophets, Apostles’ of Jesus Christ know that there is one God, and there is no other God, God is one.

 16This day the LORD thy God hath commanded thee to do these statutes and judgments: thou shalt therefore keep and do them with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
 17Thou hast avouched the LORD this day to be thy God, and to walk in his ways, and to keep his statutes, and his commandments, and his judgments, and to hearken unto his voice:
 18And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people, as he hath promised thee, and that thou shouldest keep all his commandments;
 19And to make thee high above all nations which he hath made, in praise, and in name, and in honour; and that thou mayest be an holy people unto the LORD thy God, as he hath spoken. (Deuteronomy 26:16-19, King James Version)

Joshua 9:3 through Joshua 10:43: The Gibeonite Deception

Matthew 12:1-14: Lord of Sabbath
 1At that time Jesus went on the sabbath day through the corn; and his disciples were an hungred, and began to pluck the ears of corn and to eat.
 2But when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto him, Behold, thy disciples do that which is not lawful to do upon the sabbath day. (man made traditions)
 3But he said unto them, Have ye not read what David did, when he was an hungred, and they that were with him;
 4How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the shewbread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests?
 5Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath days the priests in the temple profane the sabbath, and are blameless?
 6But I say unto you, That in this place is one greater than the temple.
 7But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.
 8For the Son of man is Lord even of the sabbath day.
 9And when he was departed thence, he went into their synagogue:
 10And, behold, there was a man which had his hand withered. And they asked him, saying, Is it lawful to heal on the sabbath days? that they might accuse him.
 11And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
 12How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
 13Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.
 14Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him. (Matthew 12:1-14, King James Version)

Matthew 11:20-24: Woe to the Unrepentant cities
 20Then began he to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done, because they repented not:
 21Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
 22But I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgment, than for you.
 23And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
 24But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. (Matthew 11:20-24, King James Version)

Matthew 10:1-9: Jesus sends the Disciples to gather the lost house of Israel
 1And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
 2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
 3Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
 4Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
 5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
 6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
 7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
 9Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, (Matthew 10:1-9, King James Version)

Matthew 13:36-43: The Parable of the Weeds explained
 36Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, “Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.”
 37He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
 38The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
 39The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
 40As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
 41The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
 42And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
 43Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. (Matthew 13:36-43, King James Version)

Psalm 77: To the Chief Musician. To Jeduthun. A Psalm of Asaph.  1 I cried out to God with my voice—
         To God with my voice;
         And He gave ear to me.
 2 In the day of my trouble I sought the Lord;
         My hand was stretched out in the night without ceasing;
         My soul refused to be comforted.
 3 I remembered God, and was troubled;
         I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed.  Selah
       
 4 You hold my eyelids open;
         I am so troubled that I cannot speak.
 5 I have considered the days of old,
         The years of ancient times.
 6 I call to remembrance my song in the night;
         I meditate within my heart,
         And my spirit makes diligent search.
       
 7 Will the Lord cast off forever?
         And will He be favorable no more?
 8 Has His mercy ceased forever?
         Has His promise failed forevermore?
 9 Has God forgotten to be gracious?
         Has He in anger shut up His tender mercies?  Selah
       
 10 And I said, “This is my anguish;
         But I will remember the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
 11 I will remember the works of the LORD;
         Surely I will remember Your wonders of old.
 12 I will also meditate on all Your work,
         And talk of Your deeds.
 13 Your way, O God, is in the sanctuary;
         Who is so great a God as our God?
 14 You are the God who does wonders;
         You have declared Your strength among the peoples.
 15 You have with Your arm redeemed Your people,
         The sons of Jacob and Joseph.  Selah
       
 16 The waters saw You, O God;
         The waters saw You, they were afraid;
         The depths also trembled.
 17 The clouds poured out water;
         The skies sent out a sound;
         Your arrows also flashed about.
 18 The voice of Your thunder was in the whirlwind;
         The lightnings lit up the world;
         The earth trembled and shook.
 19 Your way was in the sea,
         Your path in the great waters,
         And Your footsteps were not known.
 20 You led Your people like a flock
         By the hand of Moses and Aaron. (Psalm 77, New King James Version)
