Glimpse of the future

Deuteronomy 4:26-31 So I’m reading this morning and run across this passage.  Moses is speaking to the nation of Israel and in this particular passage he is giving warning about turning away from the Commandments and forgetting the god that brought them out of Egypt.  What struck me is this particular passage is a painting […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 18-20, Psalm 89:30-52, Acts 13      Rules of engagement, instructions for prophets, and how to deal with criminals; Moses is delivering his final message to the people of Israel before he departs. I had wondered if the prophets Moses was speaking of was pointing to Christ but I don’t think so . . . […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 15-17, Psalm 89:1-29, Acts 12      Who can indeed stand against the Lord!?! The Psalmist and the New Testament passages seem to repeat this to me over and over again. The House of David reigns forever and ever. When Christ shows up at a funeral he raises the dead! When Peter is set to […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 11-12, Psalm 87, Acts 10      How awesome is it that we start again with love, because of the love we have for our Father we follow His rules. I know that seems to resound in Deuteronomy but it’s so present in today’s society; well the opposite seems to permeate our culture. That we […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 7-8, Psalm 85, Acts 8      There is a great lesson to be learned from Simon, not just in the fact that he tried to “buy” the holy spirit, but in his story as a whole. His story states that he believed, he was baptized, and yet he still made this error. I think […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 5-6, Psalm 84, Acts 7      The ten commandments reiterated again to the people . . . it’s interesting to note where they are to post the law and how they are to treat it. To talk in the houses about the law, to meditate upon it. I’m ashamed to say that I don’t […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 4, Psalm 83, Acts 6      Moses has spent a long time leading these people through their trials in bringing them out of Egypt and the discipline they faced in the wilderness. I can almost . . . his writing reminds me of a father that knows he’s about to die and he’s giving […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 2-3, Psalm 82, Acts 5      It’s all about the heart. The attitude in which you do something. Moses was not allowed to go into the promised land because he did not give praise to God in striking and giving the Israelites water. He didn’t bring the water in the spirit that God had […]

Scripture~ Deuteronomy 1, Psalm 81, Acts 4 I would imagine the Sadducees were more than a little annoyed at the fact that they could not squelch the name, power, and authority of Christ from Jerusalem.  This would be a frustration they would deal with time and time again and even to this day as those […]
