Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.

- Psalm 33:l2a

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.

- Proverbs 14:34

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth;

And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.

Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of the kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store.

Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

- Deuteronomy 28:1-6

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:

Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.

Cursed shall be thy basket and thy store.

Cursed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy land, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep.

Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

- Deuteronomy 28: 15-19

 


    4. Because the manager never visits me in my home

    5. Because the people never live up to what the movies teach anyway

    How did this minister's unusual approach uncover the false reasoning contained in the people's excuses for not attending church?


Keeping the Sabbath Day holy is not only healthy for individual persons, as explained previously, but it also contains benefits for an entire city, state (province), or country. When Israel, as a nation, obeyed God's laws, even only outwardly, they prospered as a nation. When they departed from God's institutions, they decreased. This principle has been true throughout time, also today.


    Mr. Thompson's community is holding an upcoming vote on the "Sunday shopping" question, deciding whether retail stores would be allowed to open on Sunday or not. Until this time, stores were not permitted to open for business in his community.
