Deuteronomy is the epic conclusion to the Torah — the 5 Books of Moses. In Numbers, God told Moses that he won’t be entering the Promised Land and he dies at the end of this book. However, God tells Moses that he has to prepare this new generation before they go into the Land of Canaan. Remember, the majority of these folks haven’t heard the 10 Commandments, the dos and don’ts, as well as how God wants to be worshiped. God also wants Moses to reiterate that He forbids idolatry.
Before Moses gets into the law (Deuteronomy means “2nd Law”), he recounts the history of the Exodus. He actually tells of some things not in Exodus and Numbers. He was making the story relevant to this generation. That was very wise. He also clarified a lot — trying to get them to understand that God doesn’t kid around. If you disobey, you suffer the consequences.
Since a lot of this message was covered in Exodus and Numbers, I’ll skip over some of the repeated stuff, but I encourage you to read it for yourself. It is Moses’ last sermons. I just go over the highlights. We’ll start with chapters 1-5. Let’s dig in….
It’s time to GET RIGHT WITH GOD!
Jesus didn’t suffer torture and die so we could have religion! He died so He could have a Relationship with YOU!
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
