The Lord will afflict you with wasting disease, fever, inflammation, burning heat, drought, blight, and mildew; these will pursue you until you perish. Deuteronomy 28:22 CSB


This is the final episode in the Black Israel series and the first episode back from my hiatus. Today we're talking about the health issues discussed in Deuteronomy 28:15-68, as well as wrapping up the series. When I first started studying this, I wondered if it mattered and what its relevance to today was. So, in this final episode, we discuss why this passage is important to all of us today, regardless of color, nationality, or lineage.

The final footnotes include links to the first 2 podcasts in the series and the initial blog post about the topic.
