Shalom Children of G-d!
Welcome back to
Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.
This lesson we continue in second sermon of Moses’, of Blessed memory, speech to the Nation of Israel, before His death and the Nation of Israel, carrying on into the Promise Land. This lesson we will review a new portion of Deuteronomy Portion of the Bible Study.The Torah Reading will be:
Ki Tavo: Deuteronomy 26:1 – 29:8 with a. Haftarah:Isaiah 60:1-22.
In this Bible Study we will be going over: Devarim (Deuteronomy) chapter 28.
*****All links are hyper linked for credit….. please use responsibly as the Divine Name, is used and spoken.*****
I entitled this Bible Study: Deuteronomy ch 28:
How to receive overwhelming Blessings!
I am glad you asked….
In chapters 26 and 27 of Devarim, HaShem, blessed be He, is clearly directing His instructions to the Nation of Israel. In fact, to drive this point home, the opening verses of the chapters state
Devarim ch 26 verse 1 When you enter the land that your God יהוה is giving you as a heritage, and you possess it and settle in it,
Devarim ch 27 verse 1 Moses and the elders of Israel charged the people, saying: Observe all the Instruction that I enjoin upon you this day.
In contrast, here Merciful HaShem states beautifully and sweetly… Devarim chapter 28 verse 1: “Now, if you obey your God, Yahweh, to observe faithfully all the divine commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, your God, Yahweh, will set you high above all the nations of the earth.”
Now, I have an idea that many or some individuals seem to think that G-d’s love, mercy, and blessings are strictly for one group or certain people. However, it’s important to recognize that G-d’s love extends to all. It is not limited to a particular group or type of person. So, let us put aside our egos and acknowledge that G-d is the G-d of all.
If you don’t believe me, I am ready to accept the challenge, my dear friends.
I could explain or try to reason with my own words, but the Book of the Holy Prophet Isaiah speaks most profoundly. In particular, I greatly admire the chapter……..
Do you see, my friend? Jacob is everyone before Torah and the fear of G-d enters their heart. Israel is everyone who allows the fear of The Holy Blessed One in Torah, through Torah, to change them, renew them, and develop them back into what HaShem, the creator of all, originally intended.
Do you hear, my friend? G-d never intended color, race, social structure, mafia, mob, wolf mentality, or anything else to be driven by ego or vanity.
Let us continue reading in order to make sure G-d never intended such things.
So there is ….
Devarim ch 28
He is G-D!
There is none beside Him!
Let’s continue on..
What to expect this Bible Study.We have not returned to a full schedule, but I would like to ease into Season 6…..therefore we will be calling this part of the Season 5.5… hahahahahaha!It will not be a full schedule, but at least we have the warm up, because summer isn’t hot enough… right?!?!
But, once we get rockin and rollin……
We will continue to increase in our intro Hebrew vocabulary, intro Hebrew terminology, Tanakh (the actual …. Jewish Bible.. that means no “new testament”) introduction, and Torah Spiritual Teaching.(Moving on to the Bible Study section)
Blessings of the Torah:
Why Blessings of the Torah?: Before we begin the Study of the Torah a Blessing is done. In saying the Blessing we are for filling a mitzvah and Blessing HaShem, of Glory and Truth’s beautiful Torah. A Mitzvah is defined basically as:
- A commandment of the Jewish law.
- The fulfillment of such a commandment.
- A worthy deed.
I, say these Blessings every morning during my morning prayers. And, to ensure I am not leading others into to improper practices, I want to ensure I repeat the Blessings of HaShem, Our Merciful Father’s Torah just incase others may not have yet had a chance today.

2. Biblical Text Portion of Bible Study.
This Bible Study I have continued to use
Deuteronomy 28 version of chumash : The Schocken Bible, Everett Fox, 1995.
The version is hyperlinked for those who are interested in reading further or purchasing a hard copy of their own directly from the website.
Portion of a Portion: Devarim ch 28: 1-14
You all know me by now, I love me some definitions and research. So here, let’s look around and see what information we can find to assist us in doing our best to understand what our Merciful Father in Heaven is asking of us.
Voice production involves a complex fluid-structure interaction within the glottis and its control by laryngeal muscle activation.3 Breath is the “fuel” or power behind voice production, and it is the flow of air moving up the windpipe and through the voice box that starts and keeps the vocal folds vibrating until you stop talking or run out of breath. The mechanism for generating the human voice can be subdivided into three parts: the lungs, the vocal folds within the larynx (voice box), and the articulators. The vocal folds open to allow breathing and close during swallowing to prevent food from entering the lungs and during voicing. The lungs blow air against vocal folds in the nearly-closed position. The larynx is involved in swallowing, breathing, and voice production. Sound is produced when the air which passes through the vocal cords causes them to vibrate and create sound waves in the pharynx, nose, and mouth. There are three main systems to voice production: power, source, and filter, and each system is equally important. The main goal in voice training is to work on all.
from The Century Dictionary.
- To regard with attention or careful scrutiny, as for the purpose of discovering and noting something; watch; take note of: as, to observe trifles with interest; to observe one’s every movement.
- Specifically To subject to systematic inspection and scrutiny for some scientific or practical purpose: as, to observe natural phenomena for the purpose of ascertaining their laws; to observe meteorological indications for the purpose of forecasting the weather. See observation, 3.
- To see; perceive; notice; remark; hence, to detect; discover: as, we observed a stranger approaching; to observe one’s uneasiness.
- To notice and remark, or remark upon; refer to in words; say; mention: as, what did you observe?
- To heed; regard; hence, to regard with respect and deference; treat with respectful attention or consideration; humor.
- To adhere to and carry out in practice; conform to or comply with; obey: as, to observe the regulations of society; to observe the proprieties.
- To keep with due ceremonies; celebrate: as, to observe a holiday; to observe the sabbath.
Cause and effect refers to the relationship between two events or things, where one or more things happen as a result of something else. A cause is an action or motive that brings about a reaction, and the effect is the resulting reaction. In psychology, cause and effect can be seen in behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. There may be multiple causes and multiple effects. The purpose of a cause-and-effect essay is to determine how various phenomena are related in terms of origins and results.
I do so enjoy looking up definitions to help me learn more proficiently what our Father in Heaven is asking of me. Especially, since I am attempting to correct and remove several years of incorrect and misguided teachings. This relearning has been a frustrating, yet greatly rewarding process and dare say an adventure. I have learned that I love studying for hours and going out into the world and applying the lessons. And no, it has not been easy to do a 180%. It has not been easy to meet new people and join a new community. Honestly, at times I have wondered if I made the right decision uprooting my life from a peaceful small town where I felt just as alone and not welcomed, to living in a city where, guess what… in some ways more than one… I feel even more not welcomed and by even a greater number of people.
People ( more than some, but not all)that I am expected to and commanded by my G-d to celebrate Him with?!? ugh! ugh! ugh!
And although I now live in a city with more than 1 million people, I feel even more alone.
I am able to say this for sure and with no doubts… despite the odd stares, abundance of condescending questions and false accusations, negative assumptions, the cruel and hateful bigotry, and even segregation that sadly exists in any community… I have never failed in loving my God.
I have steadfastly studied His Torah and done my best to observe His laws and ways. This very uncomfortable process has made me feel even more understanding of the Tehillim written by King David (David Hamelech).
I believe HaShem, blessed be He, wants us no matter what to listen to His voice. G-d never said everything or anything would be easy. In fact, I’m pretty sure G-d says this or any life will not be easy, but He will be with us through the good and difficult times and assist us along the way if only we continue to serve Him alone.
In closing, let us remember to love HaShem no matter what. And even though times, situations, events, or places might be difficult, we can always rely that HaShem sees all and knows all. HaShem is in control. HaShem gives us what we can endure, and He is trusting us to finish the race and pass each and every test for His honor and His glory. The rewards will be sweet and everlasting if we just…
“Now, if you obey your God יהוה, to observe faithfully all the divine commandments which I enjoin upon you this day, your God יהוה will set you high above all the nations of the earth.”
Amen and Amen … #thankyouHaShem

For those that are new to this Bible Study.
Welcome, the following is a brief review of this Bible Study.
1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 6 Bible Studies. 2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Bible Study Blogs portion of the website. 3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble and Youtube, and post link in this BLOG.
How we conduct Bible Studies here:We believe in One and Only One G-D. HaShem; The G-D of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.We do not and will not Pray in any others name or Praise any other, but HaShem. Exodus chapter 20: 2-14.God spoke all these words, saying:I the LORD am your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of bondage:You shall have no other gods besides Me.You shall not make for yourself a sculptured image, or any likeness of what is in the heavens above, or on the earth below, or in the waters under the earth.You shall not bow down to them or serve them. For I the LORD your God am an impassioned God, visiting the guilt of the parents upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generations of those who reject Me, but showing kindness to the thousandth generation of those who love Me and keep My commandments.
We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out. (It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter.Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable. Proverbs 25:2 -3)
This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure.We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh.We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man.
Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time.The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D.
.Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, Wealth, honor, and life.Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked; He who values his life will keep far from them.Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age..Ezekiel 18: 20 thru 22The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone.Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die.None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live. Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live.
May HaShem, Blessed be He, continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life. O’Amein and O’AmeinA little about me: I love HaShem, TORAH, and Tanakh!!!!! I am not perfect!!!!
If we meet: We talking about Torah, drinking tea or coffee, and what books are out about HaShem! And maybe over some kosher pizza… maybe over some kosher steak…make over super sweet kosher cake ……. have a fun laugh about you guess it… Torah! Or on a bike, or during a hike, or while riding on a train in the rain as the rain falls nicely on the plain in Spain….., but either way…..We’ll be talking about TORAH!!!!
What is import to me:……..A relationship with Our Father HaShem, Our Merciful Creator, Savior, and Wise King. Live in Torah, live with Family and community of Tribe.
My thoughts: We may not be perfect, but we study, we learn, we laugh, & we grow; we try try and have the courage to try again.
My goals: To learn, and grow, and share Love of Torah in HaShem with others who are willing or open to hearing. HaShem is my refuge, my strength, my confidant, and my true resting place.I have been using the minds.com account and Rumble (Live Bible Study video Post: Rumble )as main accounts.Lastly, NEVER LOSE FAITH, Hope, and have Courage!!!!
Let’s continue to Fear and Love HaShem like a משיח and Pray. PRAY FOR OUR NATION, enemies, fellows, and many lost Sons and Daughters of Torah to return to HaShem, Blessed be He, for ever and ever Amen. HaShem is with me … I shall not be afraid!!!!!
Blessings and Prayers.with Love truly,MarieLet US Begin!!!!
