Our teaching in Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from the words of Deuteronomy 7.16-26.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, YOU SHALL NOT BE FRIGHTENED OF THEM, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS AMONG YOU, A MIGHTY GOD AND AWESOME.
And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 7.16-26.
DEUTERONOMY 7.16-18 When I read these Passages of THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY promising The Children of Israel that they would consume and destroy the Canaanites whom The LORD will deliver to them, and that Israel should not pity them, nor serve their gods because the Canaanite gods would be a trap that would lead The Jewish People astray to serve Canaanite gods. Thus removing GOD’S People from THE LORD THEIR GOD, THE GOD OF ISRAEL, and bringing GOD’S Judgment upon them.
And The LORD GOD saying to The Children of Israel, If you shall say in your heart, these nations are more than I. How can I drive them out and possess their land?
God said, You shall not be afraid of them, but remember what THE LORD YOUR GOD did to Pharaoh, and to all Egypt.
GOD destroyed Egypt and killed huge numbers of Egyptians because of their evil treatment of His Chosen People.
Therefore GOD gave The Jewish People confidence. He guaranteed victory for His People.
And I was thinking as I read these Scriptures, Were The Children of Israel aware of The Great Promise and Prophesy that GOD made with Abraham some eight hundred years earlier? That He, THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY would give The Children of Israel the Land of Canaan from a river in Egypt to the Euphrates River for their own Land that would be called The Land of Israel?
And, yes, The Children of Israel were well aware of GOD’S promise to bring them again to the land of Canaan. But this time to drive the Canaanites out to possess their land.
GOD’S decision to give The Jewish People the land of Canaan from The River of Egypt to The Euphrates River was made before the Creation.
GOD’S Plan first became known by Prophesy to Abram some eight hundred years before The Children of Israel conquered and possessed the land of Canaan. HEBREWS 4.3, GENESIS 15.13-21
GENESIS 15.13 GOD said to Abram some eight hundred years before He led the Children of Israel from Egypt to the land of Canaan to conquer and possess it, Know this for certain that your descendants, (The Children of Israel) will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, (Egypt) and shall serve them, and they shall afflict your people for four hundred years.
GENESIS 15.14 And after four hundred years of slavery, GOD said, He will Execute Judgment upon the Egyptians (According to Torah, GOD’S Law of Moses). And after the four hundred years of slavery, The Children of Israel will come out with great wealth.
GENESIS 15.15 And GOD told Abram in His Prophesy that he would die, and go to his fathers in peace, and be buried at a good old age. Abraham was one hundred and seventy five years old when he died. And Abraham is in Heaven.
GENESIS 15.16 But in the fourth generation, that is after your people have suffered four hundred years of slavery at the hands of the Egyptians, They will come here again to Canaan because the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.
Abram and his wife Sarai were living in Canaan at the time GOD spoke this Prophesy to him.
Amorites are used as a general term for the Canaanite nations.
INIQUITY in Hebrew, as in the INIQUITY of the Amorites, is AH’VONE meaning, Perversity, Evil, Sin, and Punishment. That is the reason GOD led The Children of Israel to Canaan to drive the Canaanites from their land, and possess it, that GOD says is the glory of all lands.
GENESIS 15.17 And when the sun went down, and it was dark, GOD caused a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp, perhaps a burning torch to pass between the divided pieces of the animals that were sacrificed to establish this Covenant of GOD with Abram and The Jewish People.
GENESIS 15.18-21 In the same day, GOD made a Covenant with Abram, saying, Unto your Descendants, I have given this land from The River of Egypt to The Euphrates River.
GENESIS 25.7, LUKE 16.19-31, EZEKIEL 20.5-6, GENESIS 15.9-12
When GOD delivered The Children of Israel to freedom, and after crossing the Red Sea on dry land, Moses and some three million Jewish People and a mixed multitude sang to The LORD;
Who is like unto You, O LORD among the gods? Who is like You, Glorious in Holiness, Fearful in Praises doing Wonders? You stretch out your right hand. The earth swallows them. You in mercy have led forth The People whom You have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to Your Holy Home (Israel). The people shall hear and be afraid. Sorrow shall take hold of the inhabitants of Philistia, and the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. EXODUS 15.11-18
And GOD warned The Jewish People before they entered Canaan, Do not defile yourselves as those nations are defiled whom I cast out before you. But you shall keep and obey My Statutes and My Judgments, and you shall not commit any of their abominations, you nor any stranger who lives among you. LEVITICUS 18.24-30
FOR GOD’S PEOPLE, WHETHER YOU ARE JEWISH OR NOT, THOSE WORDS OF GOD ARE TRUE TODAY, THEY HAVE NOT CHANGED, NOR WILL THEY EVER END. ISAIAH 40.8, LEVITICUS 26.1-6, 14-46
IF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, AND ALL NATIONS WOULD FOLLOW THE GOD OF CREATION, LIVING BY EVERY WORD HE SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING HIS SPOKEN WORD OF THE LAW OF MOSES, THERE WOULD BE NO SCHOOL SHOOTINGS, AND EVIL WOULD DISAPPEAR.
BUT SO MANY BIBLE TEACHERS OPPOSE TORAH, GOD’S LAW OF MOSES. DISRESPECTING GOD’S LAWS, TEACHINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES. TEACHING THAT GOD’S LAW IS ABOLISHED. KNOWING FROM THE BIBLE THAT THEY TEACH FROM THAT THE WORD OF GOD NEVER CHANGES OR ENDS.
THEREFORE THOSE BIBLE TEACHERS AND THOSE WHO FOLLOW THEM DIS GOD. THEY DISRESPECT GOD, AND DISOBEY THE GOD OF CREATION. AND THEY IGNORE GOD. BRINGING JUDGMENT UPON THE PEOPLE SUCH AS SCHOOL SHOOTINGS AND THE OTHER EVILS.
ISAIAH 40.8, MALACHI 3.6, 1 JOHN 3.4, ISAIAH 13.9, ISAIAH 24.4-6, ISAIAH 26.21, MATHEW 7.21-23, HEBREW BIBLE PSALM 40.9, CHRISTIAN BIBLE PSALM 40.8, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 3.31, ROMANS 8.4, ROMANS 10.5, JAMES 2. 21,22,25, 1 PETER 1.23-25, GENESIS 2.15-17, GENESIS 3.1-6, DEUTERONOMY 28.1-68, ETC., ETC., ETC.
DEUTERONOMY 7.18 You shall not be afraid of them, but you shall remember what THE LORD YOUR GOD did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt.
WHEN YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE BY THE WORD OF GOD AND OBEY HIS LAW OF MOSES THAT IS ALSO THE WORD OF GOD, GOD SAYS TO YOU, YOU SHALL NOT BE AFRAID, FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD WILL ALWAYS PROTECT YOU.
THAT IS GOD’S PROMISE TO YOU. BECAUSE YOU LIVE BY THE WORD OF GOD. YOU LIVE BY HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND YOU HAVE FAITH AND ATONEMENT IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA.
REMEMBER WHAT THE LORD YOUR GOD DID TO PHARAOH AND ALL EGYPT, GOD SAID. GOD DESTROYED EGYPT FOR ISRAEL’S RANSOM. EGYPT AND PHARAOH PAID THE RANSOM PRICE FOR ISRAEL’S FREEDOM. ISAIAH 43.1-7
ISAIAH 43.7 EVERYONE WHO IS CALLED BY MY NAME, EVERYONE WHO IS CALLED BY THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, EVERYONE WHO IS OBEDIENT TO GOD, OBEYING HIS WORD AND HIS LAW OF MOSES, AND HAS ATONEMENT IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA, GOD HAS CREATED YOU FOR HIS GLORY, AND HAS FORMED YOU, AND MADE YOU HIS OWN.
DEUTERONOMY 7.19 THESE ARE COMFORTING WORDS, NOT ONLY FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, BUT FOR ALL GOD’S PEOPLE WHO READ WHAT GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE, AND OBEY HIS EVERY WORD. AND BELIEVE IN ONE GOD WHO IS GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM, ELOHIM, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.
HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, JOHN 8.58, JOHN 14.9, ETC.
GOD SAID TO THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL THROUGH HIS SERVANT MOSES, YOU SAW THE CALAMITIES WITH YOUR OWN EYES, AND THE SIGNS AND WONDERS, AND THE MIGHTY HAND AND THE STRETCHED OUT ARM BY WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD BROUGHT YOU OUT. SO SHALL THE LORD YOUR GOD DO TO ALL THE PEOPLE OF WHOM YOU ARE AFRAID.
DEUTERONOMY 7.20-21 WHEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE WERE FREED FROM THE GERMAN DEATH CAMPS AFTER WORD WAR 2 WHERE SIX MILLION JEWS WERE KILLED BY THE NAZIS, AND WHEN MANY JEWISH PEOPLE WHO SURVIVED CAME TO ISRAEL TO MAKE THEIR HOME, THEY WERE NOT THE MIGHTIEST ARMY IN THE WORLD. BUT RATHER THEY WERE LIKE THE JEWISH SLAVES WHO CAME OUT OF FOUR HUNDRED YEARS OF EGYPTIAN SLAVERY.
AND WHEN THE ARAB ARMIES ATTACKED ISRAEL IN 1948 WHEN ISRAEL DECLARED ITS INDEPENDENCE, GOD STOOD WITH HIS JEWISH PEOPLE AS HE ALWAYS DOES. AND THE VALIANT JEWISH FIGHTERS ALONG WITH THE LORD THEIR GOD DEFEATED THOSE ARAB ARMIES. BECAUSE GOD STANDS WITH HIS PEOPLE AND PROTECTS THEM.
AND GOD WILL ALWAYS STAND WITH YOU AND PROTECT YOU WHEN YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD, DOING WHAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE. AND OBEYING ALL HIS LAWS THAT ARE WRITTEN IN THE LAW OF MOSES.
KNOW THAT EVERYTHING YOU ARE TAUGHT BY MAN MUST AGREE WITH TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES. AND WHEN YOU FOLLOW THE LAW OF MOSES AND HAVE FAITH IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL NOT BE FRIGHTENED OF THEM, WHOEVER THEY MAY BE WHO THINK OF CAUSING YOU TROUBLE. FOR THE LORD YOUR GOD IS WITH YOU, A MIGHTY GOD AND AWESOME. AND TERRIBLE TO HIS ENEMIES.
DEUTERONOMY 7.22-23 EVERY WORD THAT GOD SPEAKS IS LAW, AND EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IS HIS PROMISE THAT HE ALWAYS KEEPS.
THE GREAT JEWISH FIGHTERS, WITH THE LORD THEIR GOD, FOUGHT COURAGEOUSLY, AND DROVE THE CANAANITES OUT OF THEIR LAND LITTLE BY LITTLE AS GOD PROMISED ABRAM EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS EARLIER. AND GOD DELIVERED THE CANAANITE NATIONS TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND DESTROYED THE CANAANITES WITH A MIGHTY DESTRUCTION BECAUSE OF THEIR EVIL, PERVERSITY, AND SIN. AND THEY WERE DESTROYED. DEUTERONOMY 20.1-4
ISRAEL TODAY IS A SMALL BUT MIGHTY NATION. HAVING ONE OF THE GREATEST ARMIES AND AIR FORCES IN THE WORLD.
AND ISRAEL HAS GOD. THE MIGHTY AND AWESOME GOD.
BUT IN THE HEART OF THE JEWISH PERSON IS PEACE AND NOT WAR. BUT MANY OF THE NATIONS, BECAUSE OF A DEMONIC SPIRIT SEEK TO DESTROY AND ELIMINATE ISRAEL AND THE JEWISH PEOPLE FROM OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. BUT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. RATHER THE ENEMIES OF ISRAEL WILL BE DESTROYED, AND IN TIME DESTROYED FOREVER.
JEREMIAH 31.35-37, ISAIAH 66.22, HEBREW BIBLE JOEL 4.11-21, CHRISTIAN BIBLE JOEL 3.11-21
DEUTERONOMY 7.25 EVERY IDOL AND EVERY GRAVEN IMAGE IS AN ABOMINATION TO GOD. FOR GOD TOLD THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WHEN THEY POSSESSED THE LAND OF CANAAN, THE GRAVEN IMAGES OF THEIR gods YOU SHALL BURN WITH FIRE. YOU SHALL NOT DESIRE THE SILVER OR GOLD THAT IS ON THEM, NOR TAKE IT, LEST YOU ARE TRAPPED BY IT, FOR IT IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.
THINK ON THOSE WORDS FOR A MOMENT THAT GOD SPOKE TO HIS PEOPLE. BECAUSE OCCASIONALLY WE SEE IMAGES OF gods IN THIS COUNTRY.
DEUTERONOMY 7.26 NEITHER SHALL YOU BRING AN IDOL THAT GOD CALLS AN ABOMINATION, OR ANYTHING ON IT INTO YOUR HOUSE LEST YOU WILL BE A CURSED THING LIKE IT. BUT YOU SHALL UTTERLY DETEST IT, FOR IT IS A CURSED THING, THE LORD YOUR GOD SAYS.
GOD IS A JEALOUS GOD. AND WE KNOW WHAT JEALOUS MEANS. FOR GOD SAYS, YOU SHALL HAVE NO OTHER gods BEFORE ME. FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM A JEALOUS GOD VISITING THE INIQUITY OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN TO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION OF THEM THAT HATE ME.
ADD TO THAT, GOD SAYS, FALSE gods AND IDOLS CAUSE PEOPLE TO STRAY FROM HIM.
AS A RESULT THEY REJECT GOD, BY REJECTING HIS WORD. EXODUS 20.1-6, JEREMIAH 23.13,32
THEREFORE CHOOSE LIFE. BE A FOLLOWER OF GOD. THE MIGHTY GOD, AND AWESOME.
