conditions…seems he always offers a blessing and with it a curse.
IF…you do good, then blessed. The flip side of that coin is that if
they do not that which is good, then they shall be cursed. So, maybe
this is the way we should think of things in our daily life. Let our
fellow man be covered under this principal. That those that think to do
us evil, shall have their own ways turned upon them. And, that those
that seek our good, shall have that way upon them.
Pet 3:12 "For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears
are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them
that do evil."
18:20-22-"Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a
pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for
them, and to turn away thy wrath for them. Therefore deliver up their
children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the
sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and be
widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain
by the sword in battle. Let a cry be heard from their house, when thou
shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to
take me, and hid snares for my feet."
5:20-"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put
darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet,
and sweet for bitter!"
5:29-"they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life;
and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation."
Mal. 2:17-"Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye
say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth
evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them; or,
Where is the God of judgment?"1
Pet. 3:16-17-"Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil
of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your
good conversation in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God be
so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing"
