I planned to comment (write a little Lesson) on each chapter in Deuteronomy. But earlier this morning, when previewing Chapter 13, I nearly laid aside my goal! It is full of death, chapter 13. Honestly, it is composed of 18 verses, commanding death to person after person, in some cases groups of people. It is […]
The Lesson today will be “old news” to many of you. But to others, a “fresh breath of air!” It’s a warning really, today’s Bible Text. One that helps “protect” the Word of God. A warning that’s repeated elsewhere in Scripture as well! “What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt […]
The level of devotion God craves? Is He satisfied if we merely acknowledge Him in our lives? Paying Him “token” lip service from time to time? Or does He want more, in fact … demand more? In order to receive God’s very BEST day by day, to benefit from His constant servings of GRACE … it is […]
“Lasting judgment!” That’s what it looks like to me, anyway. What God did to Egypt, who had enslaved the Jews over 400 years. Deuteronomy 11:4 tells us this, about the devastation God poured upon that strong Country: “And what He did unto the army of Egypt, unto their horses, and to their chariots; how he […]
Verse 12 (of Deuteronomy chapter 10) uses an interesting string of words, an independent clause actually. “And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God REQUIRE of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart […]
I am overwhelmed! (A middle English word meaning “turned upside down!”) Because of one of the truly great chapters of the whole Bible, Deuteronomy 10. (Or am I just ravenously hungry this morning, in a spiritual sense?) Everything I read in the chapter is thrilling, twenty-two verses of insight! For example, when Moses came to receive […]
Moses had been on the Mountain (Sinai), communing with God, receiving His Word. What we now call the “Ten Commandments.” Rather suddenly … “The LORD said unto me, Arise, get thee down quickly from hence; for thy people which thou hast brought forth out of Egypt have corrupted themselves; they are quickly turned aside out […]
It clearly was a miracle! The event Deuteronomy 8:4 records. “Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.” God speaking to the Israelites! Their clothes, in those decades of wilderness wandering, did not “wax old,” a Hebrew verb (“balah”) meaning “to wear out,” or “to be consumed!” Neither […]
I don’t know that God is making an open-ended promise here, in today’s Text. But I do know He is capable of granting good health to anyone He chooses. God to the Jews: “And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put NONE of the evil DISEASES of Egypt, which thou knowest, […]
Since I only write one Lesson on weekends now, It will be later today before the Saturday Bible Study posts. Pray with us about the Revival again tonight, please. The Church is located in Oolteway, Tennessee. After the Service last night, folks leaving to drive home. Fellowshipping (obviously) in the process! Have a good day […]
Journeying through Deuteronomy: Part of our Scripture Text today reads: “When thou shalt have eaten and be full; then BEWARE lest thou forget the LORD, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.” Deuteronomy 6:11-12 It’s a warning! DO NOT FORGET! The ideas of remembering and carefully (attentively) hearing […]
It’s one of the very “ways” of God, I suspect. An emphasis on “opposites!” Once sinners, we are (through the Blood of Jesus) now saints! Once blind (spiritually), we now can see! With our Lord, the way up is to go down! The humble will be promoted, in other words! Yes, opposites! Paul took up […]
The Lord, in the Text we’re using today, is very specific about something He wants done! He not only wants us “talking” about His Word, and “teaching” it to everyone under our sphere of influence … He also wants us to prominently display its Instructions! “And thou shalt bind them (His Words) for a sign […]
God WITH His people! That’s exactly what Deuteronomy 2:25 describes, at least depicting one RESULT of God being WITH His people! “This day will I begin to put the dread of thee and the fear of thee upon the nations that are under the whole heaven, who shall hear report of thee, and shall tremble, and […]
Our Text today records an earnest request Moses prayed to God, one of the last such in the man’s illustrious career. He here (Deuteronomy 3:23-28) asks God to allow him to enter the Land of Canaan! Verse 25 specifies, quoting Moses: “I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond […]
It’s just an expression, but a memorable one. A testimony of God’s Power to deliver! Maybe I should say “God’s Power to rescue!” Deuteronomy 4:20 is the Text for today. “But the Lord hath taken you, and brought you forth out of THE IRON FURNACE, even out of Egypt, to be unto Him a people […]
Deuteronomy 5 In this truly great Chapter of Scripture we have a second “telling” of the Ten Commandments, God reminding His people how to properly live for Him. In fact, the word “Deuteronomy” literally means a “second” giving of the “Law!” (By the way, if God repeats Himself on matters of great importance, so can we! […]
I am enjoying these Lessons from the Book of Deuteronomy. Early this morning as I was reading this 6th chapter, several references (verses) literally “jumped” off the pages! They were “begging” … “Write about me, please!” “One at a time,” I thought. But I must begin with verses 6 and 7, all time classics indeed! “And […]
To travel (on foot) from Mt. Sinai (where Israel received the Law of God) … to the border of the Promised Land should have taken a total of only eleven days. So Deuteronomy 1:2 informs us, matter-of-factly. “There are ELEVEN DAYS’ JOURNEY from Horeb by the way of mount Seir unto Kadeshbarnea.” One can’t help but […]
The Bible is the inspired Word of God, from Genesis 1 through Revelation 22, a total of 1,189 chapters. To me anyway, not one sentence is suspect. That being so, the Bible is (not only, as I’ve just said, authored by God) … but still beautiful as Literature. And the opening paragraph of Deuteronomy illustrates […]
Having journeyed through the Old Testament Book of Joshua, chapter by chapter … we shall now endeavor to do the same thing with the mammoth Book of Deuteronomy! I am excited at the very thought! Yes, the fifth of the “Books of Moses.” The last Book in the Pentateuch. Deuteronomy, with its 34 chapters, its 959 […]
An act of faith … not completely fulfilled for four hundred years! That’s what Joshua 24:32 represents. “And the BONES OF JOSEPH, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, BURIED THEY in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor ….” Joseph, long ago, had extracted a […]
In the last chapter of Joshua (number 24) the man of God (Joshua) is reviewing all God had done for the Israelites. All the way back to Abraham, his father Terah really! Quite a history! Attacks repelled. Enemies destroyed. Miracles enacted. Wow! Then the Text related the “Balaam affair.” A false prophet hired to curse […]
In the closing chapter of the Book of Joshua … God is rehearsing some of His “Mighty Acts” (a phrase used of the Lord four times in Scripture, all in the Book of Psalms) done for the people of Israel. Including verse 12 … “And I (the Lord) sent the hornet before you, which drave them […]
By Joshua chapter 23 Israel was in the Land of Promise. Most the vile Canaanites have either been either extinguished or subdued. And Joshua had grown to an old age, soon to die. Yet still verse 3 of our chapter today states an amazing truth. In summary of God’s mighty Acts over the past few years, as […]
