In this Bible Study we will be going over: Devarim (Deuteronomy) ch 13 and 14.
I entitled this Bible Study…….”False Prophets / Soothsayers of Dreams and Lawless Men… Oh my!”
I believe this Bible Studies main concepts are:
More examples and details on how we are able to identify and deal with those who aim to mislead us away from HaShem Our G-D and His Torah and Commandments, thus removing us from the Covenant de HaShem.
If there is to be a special consideration of sorts or compromises for relationships (relations blood, friends, or well liked person) status when dealing with misleaders, false prophets, and or soothsayers.
What is considered by G-D, to be evil, misuse (self or others or gifts), and or abusive in behavior and or conduct (towards G-D, self or others). (heaven forbid)
Those who have or had witnessed G-D’s power, majesty, and might; are held to a higher standard of accountability. Those persons and nations face greater consequences for transgressing G-D’s Laws and ordinances. Far, greater punishments then of nations or persons, who have never known Him or been exposed to the Truth and Teaching of the Holy Torah.
Those who were shown, lead towards, or even taught the Torah and rejected it, fall under the category of judgement similar to those nations that had rejected the Torah and denied HaShem full of Glory just in Biblical times.
That is not to say a person doesn’t have a chance at redemption after proper heart felt Teshuvah, or Repentance, of sins and sinful living…but as explained before everything is up to a persons individual free will / use of intentions. We are all in control and held accountable at some point of our acceptance or rejection of HaShem and His Torah.
This lesson we will continue in Moses’ of Blessed memory speech to the Nation of Israel before His death and them carrying on to the Promise Land. For the Portion of a Portion Deuteronomy (Devarim) will end at verse 22 of chapter 3, from which we shall continue into Vaetchanan Portion of the Torah review which will run from Devarim ch 3 verse 23 thru Devarim chapater 7 verse 11. We will continue to increase in our intro Hebrew vocabulary, intro Hebrew terminology, Tanakh (the actual ….Jewish Bible) introduction, and Torah Spiritual Teaching. I have added to the Blog news letter the Blessings Before and after reading the Torah.
Brothers the children of Esau?
How odd to hear HaShem Blessed Glorious One, be so protective of the descendant of the one who gave his firs born birthright away for a bowl of lentil soup?!? How odd to hear G-D Almighty, be so loving to someone’s descendants that we read about in Malachi chapter 3 verses 1 thru 3 :The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say: ‘Wherein hast Thou loved us?’ Was not Esau Jacob’s brother? Saith the LORD; Yet I loved Jacob;
But Esau I hated, And made his mountains a desolation, And gave his heritage to the jackals of the wilderness.
It was the fortieth year since the exodus from Egypt, shortly before the Jewish people were to enter the Promised Land. G‑d had informed Moses that each tribe’s territory would be determined, among other things, by lottery. Each man in the tribe would receive a parcel of land in his tribe’s territory. Upon the man’s death, his sons would inherit his property, thus guaranteeing that each plot would remain in the family to which it was originally assigned.
One man, Zelophehad, of the tribe of Manasseh, had only daughters. Zelophehad himself died in the desert (more on that soon), and his daughters were worried that they would not receive a share in the land of Israel. They therefore turned to Moses and requested that they be granted the land that would have gone to their father.
Why definitions matter? We don’t want to bare false witness or shot misguided arrows. Let’s dive in to Numbers ch 25 Conclusion to the balaam system plaguing the Church and Body of CHRIST. #mariespeaksgodsgrace
What is fourth part of Israel?
I have never heard of this before, so naturally I did a little researching. Below is what I found. Links are provided for other to view or research further.
1 article I found which I believe gives many great explanations regarding Balaam and his role of being used by GOD to speak Blessings of GOD’s Chosen Nation:
In the first of four oracles given by Balaam, two important prophetic aspects of latter-day Israel are given by which we can identify them: separate and numerous. Numbers 23:9 says, ” For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.” (KJV) What does it mean, “the people shall dwell alone?” Israel was not separate, dwelling alone, when the prophecy was given. In fact, Deuteronomy 7 lists seven distinct nations who resided with the Israelites in Canaan during the pre-exilic era. Clearly, then, this prophecy had a fulfillment after God’s people were removed from the pagan tribes of the land of Palestine in the Babylonian and Assyrian exiles of 732 BC to 537 BC. Noted 18th century scholar, John Gill, stated, ” Israel shall not be reckoned among the nations; as belonging to them, shall not be made of any account by them, but be despised and reproached for their religion chiefly; nor reckon themselves of them, nor mix with them; so the [rabbinic] Targum of Jerusalem, ‘they shall not be mixed.”’
Book of Matthew 5: 13-19…
The Bible study Saturday on a Friday!!!!
So funny to take a look back from where this Bible Study all began. I Pray others enjoy this look back.
When GOD was first calling me to begin the Bible Study I was having a difficult times coming to grips with how to even begin. Thankful GOD is so patient with us and gives us guidance. I believe we started out with BLOGS and grew into videos and so on.
Below is the primary post from the Facebook page back in 2019.
The Future Role of the Remnant
ch 5: 9 Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries,
and all your enemies shall be cut off.
10 In that day, says the Lord,
I will cut off your horses( travel and other modes of transportation will be distoryed or fail to operate) from among you
and will destroy your chariots; (corruption with military vehicles or robots, maybe even other machinery will fail.)
11 and I will cut off the cities of your land( cities locations of mass populations that are most likely great with sin will know great pains)
and throw down all your strongholds;
12 and I will cut off sorceries from your hand,( witches and sorcery, pharmacy and drugs especially)
and you shall have no more soothsayers;( mediums and prosperity gospel will disappear)
13 and I will cut off your images(images that trick nations minds programing sources.ego, post, self idols and so on)
and your pillars from among you,( evil pillars that had been erected as evil channeling)
and you shall bow down no more
to the work of your hands;
14 and I will uproot your sacred poles[g] from among you
and destroy your towns.
15 And in anger and wrath I will execute vengeance
on the nations that did not obey.
