Moshe speaks to his people for the last time before HaShem takes him home to Ha Olam Haba, here he says the following;
"See, I have set before you today life and good, death and evil, in that I command you today to love Adonai your Elohim, to walk in his ways and to keep his Mitzvoth…"
We are used to hearing, when we mention these aspects, "Life and death" , "good and evil" the opposites, kind of like "black and white" "dry and wet" "happy and sad" etc,.
But here Moshe says and writes down the words in a different format, he says, "Life and good' (Chaim v'tov) and "death and evil" (Mot v'ra'ah)
Why would he say these words in that order? One way we could look at it is that "life" is related to the "good works that we may accomplish in our lifetime, the "good works" can lead to a "life with purpose, a life fulfilled………….however………….
"Death" comes quickly to those who do "evil" worse than a physical death would be "spiritual death" to be separated from Adonai for ALL eternity! Be rejecting Elohim's "Yeshuah" (salvation) a person condemns himself or herself, one that does evil in their lifetime, can only expect to receive evil right back, for all eternity.
Life and death, good and evil are part of this world, life and death, we have no choice, but to do good or evil? which do you choose?
