03 Is the Lord real glad to destroy the wayward

Nice Deuteronomy vs terrorist Deuteronomy

In the Old Testament, the Book of Deuteronomy says:
Obey the Lord and the Lord will rejoice and bring you prosperity

But as always there’s a catch!

Deuteronomy also says:
If you don't obey, the Lord will rejoice over your destruction

God will send terror to the disobedient: Disease, men to despoil brides-to-be, and blights to farm land

Deuteronomy 28:15 If you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: ... 21 The LORD will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess. 22 The LORD will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish. 23 The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. 24 The LORD will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed. ... 30 You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and ravish her. You will build a house, but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit. ... 63 Just as it pleased the LORD to make you prosper and increase in number, so it will please him to ruin and destroy you. You will be uprooted from the land you are entering to possess.

Recap: God takes pleasure in giving a really hard time to the disobedient.
