Introduction

 

‘Notwithstanding the sophistry of Satan to the contrary, it is always disastrous to disobey God. We must set our hearts to know what is truth. All the lessons which God has caused to be placed on record in His Word are for our warning and instruction. They are given to save us from deception. Their neglect will result in ruin to ourselves. Whatever contradicts God’s Word, we may be sure proceeds from Satan.’  The Faith I Live By, page 73.

 

‘That it might be well with them’

 

1. How did God explain the benefits of keeping His Commandments? Deuteronomy 5:29.

NOTE: ‘He delights to bestow His blessings upon all who will value them. “Oh, that they would fear Me, and keep all My commandments always, that it might be well with them and with their children forever!” This covers all who should live on the earth till the close of time, all who come under the mediation of Jesus Christ. The prosperity of all depends upon their obedience to God’s requirements.’ Signs of the Times, May 20, 1880.

 

2. How did God picture the lives of those who live according to His Commandments? Isaiah 48:18.

NOTE: ‘He who walks in the way of God’s commandments is walking in company with Christ, and in His love the heart is at rest. When Moses prayed, “Show me now Thy way, that I may know Thee,” the Lord answered him, “My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest.” And through the prophets the message was given, “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest to your souls” (Exodus 33:13, 14; Jeremiah 6:16). And He says, “O that thou hadst hearkened to My commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea” (Isaiah 48:18).’ Lift Him Up, page 162.
