Blessings and Curses

New Testament writers definitely state the Old Testament does have value.  Jesus Himself said:  “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matthew 5:17-18)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16)

After God brought the children out of Egypt they wandered in the wilderness for forty years He led them to two mountains Mt Gerizim the mountain of ‘Blessings’ and Mt Ebal the mountain of ‘Curses’.

Moses commanded six leaders from six tribes to stand on Mt Gerizim to pronounce the ‘Blessings’ that would come upon the people ‘if’ they obeyed the commandments of God.

The other six leaders from from the remaining six tribes stood upon Mt Ebal and pronounced the Curses ‘if’ they did not obey the commandments of God.

Deuteronomy 28 lists the ‘Blessings’ & ‘Curses’.
