Strict Obedience To God

Deuteronomy 27:9-28:14

Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal were located in Samaria, about 40 miles north of Jerusalem.

Between the mountains, which rise about 3000 feet above sea level, lies a narrow pass.

Moses commanded that when the Israelites came into the Promised Land, the blessings for keeping the law (Deuteronomy 28 : 1–14) should be spoken by half the tribes from Mount Gerizim, and the curses for not obeying the law (Deuteronomy 27 : 15–26 ) should be spoken by the other tribes from Mount Ebal.

This dramatic scene would emphasize the importance of obedience and the consequences of disobedience, even down to a curse on anyone leading the blind astray (Deuteronomy 27:18).

God is concerned about all of life and how we live it.

Consider The Two Mountains
As We Walk The Narrow Way!
