A Reply to Fergus’ Excellent First Assessment of God’s Law Versus Man’s License – A Nazi/Obama-esque America
It is a GREAT BLESSING to see you expound, Fergus, on these things you are being granted the first fruits of understanding on Brother, such as Law and License. YES the STATE wants to increasingly take the PLACE OF THE PERSON WHO IS THE VICTIM in a crime BECAUSE THE STATE INCREASINGLY WANTS TO BE SEEN AS ALL THAT IS RELEVANT. It increases this view by the completely erasing the Victim’s role in the legal process so that when a person defrauds or steals from another person, there is NO RESTITUTION TO THE PERSON/VICTIM but the STATE usurps the victim’s role and the case is THE STATE VS THE CRIMINAL, so it is seen that the STATE BECOMES THE ONLY RELEVANT ENTITY IN A NATION, just like the Nazi Party infused itself into EVERY aspect of the people’s life, so if the mother of a little boy said something against the state, instead of seeing his mommy as God decreed her role in selfless guardianship in love, the Child would see the state in the mother/father guardian role through the reeducation in the “schools” and, as often happened in Nazi Germany, the children turned their mommy or daddy in to be murdered by the Nazi Party. The people in this nation, unless they start to study TRUE HISTORY, instead of the lies which have precipitated to this nation’s crumbling society, are too ignorant of Truth in Biblical Law and the Brilliant and Unequivocal, Immutable and Life and Love Propagating network of Absolute Truths which rise from Biblical Law of which Jesus Christ was the Human Embodiment of. The Federal Government with the help of the Humanist Apostate Church is constructing the same environment by depersonalizing “good” and “evil” in that “good” is what is good for the state and “evil” is what offends the state as you will see below. As people in our society see people as either for or against their “primary guardian” as the people in Nazi Germany did, the state takes on the false god role as the federal government has in this nation with defacto gestapo police on the web, in the concentration camps we call “schools”, in our homes etc. Your children and others brought up under an anti-external authority regime (only authority is the government) will look to a government that entices their flesh with LICENSE instead of True Law (Immutable Law of God). These “under the spell” will see those who are not under the “spell of the evil” (as many Germans under the Nazis described it), who wish to love and help those under the apostate and deadly delusion , as looking to “take away their freedom” or “stop their fun” allowed by the god government who has meeting their most voracious and lusty desires in mind. Some comments I have seen on the web and heard personally, unveil the heart of the Obama-esque Infection of this nation (a man raised on broken family and hatred of God and Man, an anti-Christ spirit -*1 Jn)
*1 John 2:22 (NASB) Who is the liar but the one who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son. (Obama’s entire existence is a hate filled denial of the Triune God Almighty)
… these voices reveal a hate filled and murderous intent which is the nature of the Children of the Devil….
John 8:44 (NASB) “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
….toward those who know and proclaim God as the ultimate Standard of ALL ROLES OF MANKIND and Life and Law through their Life in Christ, as Priests and Kings in Christ’s Kingdom. These people who give in to their flesh and who once fed off the sensual hatred and power lust of the “Obama of Germany”- Hitler, lived only to see, when God Almighty crushed the regime, that they were deceived by a great lie and many a child learned that he or she had ultimately murdered his or her mommy and/or daddy and they were destroyed, just as Hitler desired from his bunker at the end, when he told Speer to cut all food supply, bridges, poison water and destroy power supply to the German people who “failed him”. The Nazi regime won the dead hearts of the God-less and those of humanist faith through GIANT SOCIAL PROGRAMS which enchanted the people and gave the Government ultimate power and ALL THE MEN COULD THROW TO THE WIND THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER GOD, TO RIGHTEOUSNESS IN THE LAW OF CHRIST UNDER GOD AND TO FAMILY AND CHURCH …… AND HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF.
Now to the depersonalization of the citizen of the Kingdom of God by making them think they live under a different, manmade kingdom of the flesh.
If Man as an individual is IRRELEVANT, except by what the STATE deems him relevant for, and THAT being to pay it TAXES and INCREASE ITS POWER THROUGH GIVING IT CONTROL OVER FURTHER AREAS OF LIFE LIKE OBAMACARE IS GOING TO DO TO ALL MANKIND IN THIS NATION, THEN WE LOSE OUR IDENTITY AS INDIVIDUALS PRECIOUS AND BELOVED IN THE EYES OF GOD AND WE BEGIN TO SEE EACH OTHER AS MANIFESTATIONS OF THE STATE, KNOWN BY NUMBERS AND STATE DEFINED ROLES WHICH ARE GIVEN “VALUE” TO THE GOD-LESS ROBOTIC AUTOMATON SLAVES BY THE god GOVERNMENT GRANTING LICENSE TO FEED THE FLESH AND THE FLESH THEN RELIES ON THE BEAST/GOVERNMENT MORE AND MORE FOR ALL LIFE!!!! THIS WILL BE YOUR TYRANT RUN AMERICA INSTEAD OF GOD DEFINED ROLES ANDD THE BLESSINGS OF TAKING INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS AND THE BLESSINGS WHICH ENSUE. JOBS ARE BEING CUT BY THE 1000’s ALREADY As this MONOLITHIC TYRANNY GROWS, therefore it must control more and more of your life so that you become LESS RELEVANT AND JUST A COG in the MACHINE. The LAWS become LESS what you are NOT TO DO, AND MORE AND MORE “positivistic” TELLING YOU WHAT YOU MUST DO OR ELSE…..OBAMACARE! TAXATION FORCING CHRISTIANS TO PAY TO ABORT/MURDER CHILDREN, TO PROPAGATE AND PROMULGATE SODOMY, TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN TO HATE GOD!
Men of God….make a stand here cast Truth into the Darkness….cast Light into the night!!! This nation is the DEFACTO CHURCH OF HUMANISM!! IT IS THE RELIGION OF THIS PERVERSE PEOPLE WHOSE CHARACTER IS THE WORST OF HELLISH VISIONS COME TO FRUITION. The Beast of the Sea is on the Throne of the Land and the people are in FULL DELUSION AS THEY CANNOT SEE IT AND IT BREAKS MY HEART AS THEY ARE BLESSED WITH SO MUCH WHICH A PURE HEART COULD LIFT TO OUR GOD AS AN OFFERING OF LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE TO THE NATIONS!
But alas, the “Sea” which is the population of dead and obstreperous fallen hearts amassed unto glorifying their own tools of destruction, their SIN and the license instead of LAW which the God-Hating Beast dangles before their dead hearts, prepared by the Concentration Camps called “schools”, the media which is Hell’s bible and the propagator of FEAR which is what the Beast uses to control its SLAVES and finally prepared by Men of Adam….Men who cast down their Responsibility to Submit ALL Life to their God who revealed Himself in the Bible and in His Glorious Son who is the TRUE KING of this World now, their Responsibility to Family, Church, Community and Nation under God and the evangelization of the World, happening with or without our “participation”….all that makes a MAN, A TRUE MAN, IS CAST ASIDE to pursue death in the full embracing of their lusts, given permission by this nation’s facilitator of American MEN Destroying this nation, Barak Hussein Obama and all the terrified MEN in the Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches who cower in the face of this powerless Beast, who only looks powerful to eyes trained to see the Flesh as true power, instead of the ROTTING CORPSE IT IS…Yes, the writhing waves and tossing waters of fallen mankind is where this anti-Christ spirited man rose from, to the head of the Beast of the Sea…..the head of American Apostate Political Power…
….Isaiah 17:12 (NASB) Alas, the uproar of many peoples Who roar like the roaring of the seas, And the rumbling of nations Who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters!
…..to visit the Mark of the Beast (counterfeit law or LICENSE) which constrains man to sin as the Roman Emperors did make “law” which forced the Christians of old to sin, and instead of the Coliseum to be torn limb from limb, Christians are now being brought to court (2 florists so far and much more to come) and their lives SHREDDED to ruin for not serving SODOMITE BLASPHEMY CEREMONIES….but this is just the beginning if their is no repentance…..For the Man of God has not the Mark of the Beast on him in the Hand (guiding actions) and on the forehead (guiding thought and word)…
Revelation 13:15 (NASB) And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
…..but the Mark of God WHICH IS THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST AND THUS THE CHARACTER OF GOD REVEALED IN THE LAW OF GOD is the “MARK” on the Man and Woman of God; the Spirit of Christ in us gives us Christ’s Character which is the Character of God, revealed in Christ through His PERFECT OBEDIENCE to the LAW OF GOD, and revealed in us as we begin, by Faith, to Live according God’s Character through Obedience, FROM THE Spirit BY FAITH, of the Law of God unto Righteousness! This Obedience grows in Sanctification by the Holy Spirit Counseling and dwelling with our Spirit, our Obedience by Faith revealing God’s very Character in us as His Children, HIS LAW/CHARACTER guiding our Thoughts and Words (Mark of God on the FOREHEAD) and our Actions (Mark of God on the HAND) as seen here in Deuteronomy. This is the section of Scripture the Beasts try to pervert by the forcing of a Counterfeit Law on the Children of God….
Deuteronomy 6:4 (NASB) “Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one! 5 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 “These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 “You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 9 “You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
The Beast of the Earth is the Apostate Religion of HUMANISM (Man is the Standard for Truth, Good and Evil) replete in the vast majority of churches in America, set up to PLEASE MAN, NOT GOD. This Beast always rises with the Beast of the Sea in SOME FORM (the SS with Hitler’s government – the Roman Catholic Church with the “Holy Roman Emperor” in the Reformation times and prior – the Communist cult of personality with the Communist Soviet Government – America’s Federal Government and the Apostate Churches of Man-Worship/Humanism)
We, as MEN of God, with the proper teaching under those such as Rushdoony, Morecraft III, Boettner, Bacon, Hodges, Machen, Calvin, Flavel, Owen, Knox, Bavnik, etc can redirect this nation unto a rebirth into a TRUE nation under God in Christ Jesus. There can be NO compromise with the World for that is all that the CONSERVATIVE or REPUBLICAN movement is, a “false good”. What was lost, in the Apostate American Church of Humanism was that the man who is SAVED, BY NATURE BEGINS TO OBEY THE LAW FROM THE NEW SPIRIT IN HIM AND FAITH. The Church of Humanism says the “LAW IS ABOLISHED!!” If the LAW was abolished, GOD WOULD BE ABOLISHED!! It is His very Character and Righteousness and Life for those who have been Granted the SPIRIT OF CHRIST to obey from a FAMILIAL AND UNBREAKABLE RELATIONSHIP OF PERFECT LOVE WITH JESUS, OUR SAVIOR and KING and ADOPTIVE BROTHER and with OUR FATHER AND WITH OUR COUSELOR THE HOLY SPIRIT!! The fallen man who “obeys” the objective content of the Law of God has NOT DONE RIGHTEOUSNESS BUT SINNED because the Flesh serves itself and SELF ALONE, NOT GOD… “for ALL that is done without Faith is SIN” (Rom 14:23)
Hebrews 11:6 (NASB) And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
FAITH IS OF THE SPIRIT, for we are given in our Rebirth, by the Holy Spirit’s work in proceeding from the Throne of Christ to the Elect, our portion of the Spirit of Christ and thus Faith which is the perceptive capability of our Spirit in that when we perceive and experience by the 5 senses, FAITH takes captive that experience to the Spirit of Christ in us (our Living Spirit) for assessment and Righteous option for response. Additionally the Holy Spirit dwells with us and Counsels with our Spirit to help our Spirit GROW/SANCTIFICATION in Knowledge, Understanding and Wisdom.
2 Corinthians 4:13 (NASB) But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,
As you see here, Paul BELIEVED in Christ by Faith taking the Gospel captive to his spirit and thus he saw Christ for the first time THROUGH CHRIST/GOD’s EYES in his spirit and BELIEVED FULLY as he experienced the Truth within his spirit and this Truth was presented to his heart and mind by Faith as confirmation and HE SPOKE the Truth he Believed by Faith!
SO MEN, your objective is to destroy the lies propagated throughout this land that men can in ANY WAY be related to God without HIS GRANTING THEM CHRIST’s SPIRIT
John 3:5 (NASB) Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
AND NEVER OF MAN’s VOLITION OR DESIRE WILL IT BE GIVEN, BUT BY THE FATHER’s DECREE IN THE BOOK OF LIFE!
John 15:16 (NASB) “You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you.
We must reestablish Righteousness as the STANDARD of the Christian and the Sovereign Glory of God as the Purpose of his EVERY THOUGHT, WORD and ACTION….for IF that man is truly regenerated in Christ…this is his GREATEST DESIRE and SELF BE DAMNED!!
HUMILITY! RESPONSIBILITY TO OTHERS ALWAYS BEFORE SELF! DEFERENCE TO OUR BROTHERS IN LOVE and RESPONSIBLE DISCIPLINE IN CORRECTING THAT WHICH DEVIATES FROM THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE IN THEM ABD THEIR LIVES! Their is NO MAN who deserves ANYTHING but to be judged unto HELL and DAMNATION…therefore the Beatitudes are the Stairway of the Righteous Heart from Salvation to Sanctification…from discovery of the poverty of our spirit at salvation, and the need for Christ in the tiniest of things, as that is what He WILLS, and on to the mourning of our past lives as all the sin turns to Wisdom by Grace and onward….
We are NOTHING and GOD is EVERYTHING. The slightest invention of the Heart of Man corrupts Righteousness and that is why Church “services” have become entertainment houses to please the flesh and ignite the senses…..GOD!! GOD ALMIGHTY who granted your mind capacity to read this and your last breath is to be WORSHIPPED in FEAR AND AWE in the most RADIANT LOVE AND ABOVE ALL ELSE IN THE MATRIX OF THAT LOVE NEED ALWAYS BE
GRATITUDE………THANKS……GRATITUDE IN ALL THINGS..
For if you are His Child, it ALL is a BLESSING UNTO YOU…
WAKE UP MEN AND GET DOWN ON YOUR FACE …IN PROSTRATE GRATITUDE AND FEAR AND SORROW FOR THIS PERVERT FILLED HELL HOLE CALLED America…..
You have ceded control to the BEASTS, the perverse God Hating FOOLS of this land CONTROL GOD’s territory and PEOPLE! He is giving Time for Repentance but it is waning and is coming to an end. MEN OF GOD, make this the NATION which fully REPENTS like Nineveh but with lasting establishment of a Government of for and by God Almighty under the AUSPICES OF YOUR KING JESUS CHRIST! These are the Blessings which were still holding this land together until this great evil took hold fully in this land under the current darkness and evil pall….The Blessings lasted over 200 years, can you imagine if this nation had not fallen away from Faith in the mid 1800’s and embraced the “best” apostasy, lies, and suicidal delusions of mankind in evolution, humanism, Unitarianism, the desire to worship one world government of man….the REBUILDING OF THE TOWER OF BABEL? But you fell America and your name need not be capitalized on the path you trod, for your name will be an adjective soon enough, for apostasy and annihilation if your Men of God do not start to present their bodies as Living Sacrifices, Holy and Acceptable, which is your spiritual worship…..unto a nation of Righteousness and the Blessings* that follow…
FOR THE CURSES HAVE ALREADY BEGUN…..
Deuteronomy 28:15 (NASB) “But it shall come about, if you do not obey the LORD your God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes with which I charge you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: 16 “Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. 17 “Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 18 “Cursed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock. 19 “Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out. 20 “The LORD will send upon you curses, confusion, and rebuke, in all you undertake to do, until you are destroyed and until you perish quickly, on account of the evil of your deeds, because you have forsaken Me. 21 “The LORD will make the pestilence cling to you until He has consumed you from the land where you are entering to possess it. 22 “The LORD will smite you with consumption and with fever and with inflammation and with fiery heat and with the sword and with blight and with mildew, and they will pursue you until you perish. 23 “The heaven which is over your head shall be bronze, and the earth which is under you, iron. 24 “The LORD will make the rain of your land powder and dust; from heaven it shall come down on you until you are destroyed. 25 “The LORD shall cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will go out one way against them, but you will flee seven ways before them, and you will be an example of terror to all the kingdoms of the earth. 26 “Your carcasses will be food to all birds of the sky and to the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away. 27 “The LORD will smite you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors and with the scab and with the itch, from which you cannot be healed. 28 “The LORD will smite you with madness and with blindness and with bewilderment of heart; 29 and you will grope at noon, as the blind man gropes in darkness, and you will not prosper in your ways; but you shall only be oppressed and robbed continually, with none to save you. 30 “You shall betroth a wife, but another man will violate her; you shall build a house, but you will not live in it; you shall plant a vineyard, but you will not use its fruit. 31 “Your ox shall be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will not eat of it; your donkey shall be torn away from you, and will not be restored to you; your sheep shall be given to your enemies, and you will have none to save you. 32 “Your sons and your daughters shall be given to another people, while your eyes look on and yearn for them continually; but there will be nothing you can do. 33 “A people whom you do not know shall eat up the produce of your ground and all your labors, and you will never be anything but oppressed and crushed continually. 34 “You shall be driven mad by the sight of what you see. 35 “The LORD will strike you on the knees and legs with sore boils, from which you cannot be healed, from the sole of your foot to the crown of your head. 36 “The LORD will bring you and your king, whom you set over you, to a nation which neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone. 37 “You shall become a horror, a proverb, and a taunt among all the people where the LORD drives you. 38 “You shall bring out much seed to the field but you will gather in little, for the locust will consume it. 39 “You shall plant and cultivate vineyards, but you will neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes, for the worm will devour them. 40 “You shall have olive trees throughout your territory but you will not anoint yourself with the oil, for your olives will drop off. 41 “You shall have sons and daughters but they will not be yours, for they will go into captivity. 42 “The cricket shall possess all your trees and the produce of your ground. 43 “The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you will go down lower and lower. 44 “He shall lend to you, but you will not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you will be the tail. 45 “So all these curses shall come on you and pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you would not obey the LORD your God by keeping His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you. 46 “They shall become a sign and a wonder on you and your descendants forever. 47 “Because you did not serve the LORD your God with joy and a glad heart, for the abundance of all things; 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies whom the LORD will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in the lack of all things; and He will put an iron yoke on your neck until He has destroyed you. 49 “The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as the eagle swoops down, a nation whose language you shall not understand, 50 a nation of fierce countenance who will have no respect for the old, nor show favor to the young. 51 “Moreover, it shall eat the offspring of your herd and the produce of your ground until you are destroyed, who also leaves you no grain, new wine, or oil, nor the increase of your herd or the young of your flock until they have caused you to perish. 52 “It shall besiege you in all your towns until your high and fortified walls in which you trusted come down throughout your land, and it shall besiege you in all your towns throughout your land which the LORD your God has given you. 53 “Then you shall eat the offspring of your own body, the flesh of your sons and of your daughters whom the LORD your God has given you, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you. 54 “The man who is refined and very delicate among you shall be hostile toward his brother and toward the wife he cherishes and toward the rest of his children who remain, 55 so that he will not give even one of them any of the flesh of his children which he will eat, since he has nothing else left, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you in all your towns. 56 “The refined and delicate woman among you, who would not venture to set the sole of her foot on the ground for delicateness and refinement, shall be hostile toward the husband she cherishes and toward her son and daughter, 57 and toward her afterbirth which issues from between her legs and toward her children whom she bears; for she will eat them secretly for lack of anything else, during the siege and the distress by which your enemy will oppress you in your towns. 58 “If you are not careful to observe all the words of this law which are written in this book, to fear this honored and awesome name, the LORD your God, 59 then the LORD will bring extraordinary plagues on you and your descendants, even severe and lasting plagues, and miserable and chronic sicknesses. 60 “He will bring back on you all the diseases of Egypt of which you were afraid, and they will cling to you. 61 “Also every sickness and every plague which, not written in the book of this law, the LORD will bring on you until you are destroyed. 62 “Then you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, because you did not obey the LORD your God. 63 “It shall come about that as the LORD delighted over you to prosper you, and multiply you, so the LORD will delight over you to make you perish and destroy you; and you will be torn from the land where you are entering to possess it. 64 “Moreover, the LORD will scatter you among all peoples, from one end of the earth to the other end of the earth; and there you shall serve other gods, wood and stone, which you or your fathers have not known. 65 “Among those nations you shall find no rest, and there will be no resting place for the sole of your foot; but there the LORD will give you a trembling heart, failing of eyes, and despair of soul. 66 “So your life shall hang in doubt before you; and you will be in dread night and day, and shall have no assurance of your life. 67 “In the morning you shall say, ‘Would that it were evening!’ And at evening you shall say, ‘Would that it were morning!’ because of the dread of your heart which you dread, and for the sight of your eyes which you will see. 68 “The LORD will bring you back to Egypt in ships, by the way about which I spoke to you, ‘You will never see it again!’ And there you will offer yourselves for sale to your enemies as male and female slaves, but there will be no buyer.”
*Deuteronomy 28:1 (NASB) “Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. 2 “All these blessings will come upon you and overtake you if you obey the LORD your God: 3 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country. 4 “Blessed shall be the offspring of your body and the produce of your ground and the offspring of your beasts, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock. 5 “Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. 6 “Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out. 7 “The LORD shall cause your enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you; they will come out against you one way and will flee before you seven ways. 8 “The LORD will command the blessing upon you in your barns and in all that you put your hand to, and He will bless you in the land which the LORD your God gives you. 9 “The LORD will establish you as a holy people to Himself, as He swore to you, if you keep the commandments of the LORD your God and walk in His ways. 10 “So all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by the name of the LORD, and they will be afraid of you. 11 “The LORD will make you abound in prosperity, in the offspring of your body and in the offspring of your beast and in the produce of your ground, in the land which the LORD swore to your fathers to give you. 12 “The LORD will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. 13 “The LORD will make you the head and not the tail, and you only will be above, and you will not be underneath, if you listen to the commandments of the LORD your God, which I charge you today, to observe them carefully, 14 and do not turn aside from any of the words which I command you today, to the right or to the left, to go after other gods to serve them.
