Old Testament blessings for obedience to God’s Law, which still apply today

Deuteronomy 28:1  Now if thou wilt hear the voice of all his commandments, which I command thee this day, the Lord thy God will make thee higher than all the nations that are on the earth. 
Deu 28:2  And all these blessings shall come upon thee and overtake thee: yet so if thou hear his precepts. 
Deu 28:3  Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed in the field. 
Deu 28:4  Blessed shall be the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the droves of thy herds, and the folds of thy sheep. 
Deu 28:5  Blessed shall be thy barns and blessed thy stores. 
Deu 28:6  Blessed shalt thou be coming in and going out. 
Deu 28:7  The Lord shall cause thy enemies, that rise up against thee, to fall down before thy face: one way shall they come out against thee, and seven ways shall they flee before thee. 
Deu 28:8  The Lord will send forth a blessing upon thy storehouses, and upon all the works of thy hands: and will bless thee in the land that thou shalt receive. 
Deu 28:9  The Lord will raise thee up to be a holy people to himself, as he swore to thee: if thou keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, and walk in his ways. 
Deu 28:10  And all the people of the earth shall see that the name of the Lord is invocated upon thee, and they shall fear thee. 
Deu 28:11  The Lord will make thee abound with all goods, with the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy cattle, with the fruit of thy land, which the Lord swore to thy fathers that he would give thee. 
Deu 28:12  The Lord will open his excellent treasure, the heaven, that it may give rain in due season: and he will bless all the works of thy hands. And thou shalt lend to many nations, and shalt not borrow of any one. 
Deu 28:13  And the Lord shall make thee the head and not the tail: and thou shalt be always above, and not beneath: yet so if thou wilt hear the commandments of the Lord thy God which I command thee this day, and keep and do them, 
Deu 28:14  And turn not away from them neither to the right hand, nor to the left, nor follow strange gods, nor worship them. 

Editor’s note: All of the above clearly shows how dysfunctional and lawless today’s world actually is.
