DOES GOD DETERMINE EVERYTHING?

Shalom,

Our teaching will return to The Book of Deuteronomy in Chapter 26, Verses 1-3

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, DOES GOD DETERMINE EVERYTHING?

And with that said, let’s read Deuteronomy 26.1-3

DEUTERONOMY 26.1  AND WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, AND POSSESS IT, AND LIVE IN IT, (THAT WAS CANAAN, THAT TODAY IS THE LAND OF ISRAEL)

THE NAME ISRAEL IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE HUNDREDS OF TIMES BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME THE LAND OF ISRAEL.

GOD GAVE JACOB THE NAME ISRAEL AFTER JACOB WRESTLED WITH A MAN.  THAT MAN WAS GOD.  AND YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS GOD. 

AND THEY WRESTLED FROM EVENING TO MORNING.  AND GOD SAID TO JACOB, WHAT IS YOUR NAME?  AND HE SAID, JACOB.  AND GOD SAID YOUR NAME SHALL NO LONGER BE JACOB BUT ISRAEL.

ISRAEL MEANS, FOR AS A PRINCE YOU HAVE POWER WITH GOD AND WITH MEN, AND HAVE PREVAILED.  GENESIS 32.22-30

WHEN GOD NAMED JACOB ISRAEL, THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT THE NAME ISRAEL WAS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE.  AND THAT WAS SOME 4,000 YEARS AGO.

MUCH EARLIER, WELL BEFORE JACOB WAS EVEN BORN, AND ISAAC WAS BUT A YOUNG CHILD, GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, ISAAC’S FATHER, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR SEED BE CALLED.  OR, FOR IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR DESCENDANTS BE NAMED.  GENESIS 21.12

ABRAHAM AND SARAH HAD ONE CHILD, THEIR SON ISAAC.  ISAAC AND REBEKAH HAD TWINS, ESAU AND JACOB.

MANY BIBLES SAY THAT ESAU WAS A CUNNING HUNTER, A MAN OF THE FIELD, WHILE JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN DWELLING IN TENTS.

BUT WHEN GOD TOLD MOSES ABOUT JACOB AND ESAU WHEN MOSES WAS RECORDING GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES, GOD SAID THAT JACOB WAS A PERFECT MAN LIVING IN TENTS.

GENESIS 25.27  THE WORD PLAIN, AS IN JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN, COMES FROM THE HEBREW TAHM THAT MEANS PERFECT.

ALL THE BIBLES THAT I HAVE SAY THAT JACOB WAS A PLAIN MAN DWELLING IN TENTS, OR A MILD MAN LIVING IN TENTS, OR A WHOLESOME MAN, OR A PLAIN AND QUIET MAN, OR A PEACEFUL MAN, OR THAT JACOB HAD A QUIET TEMPERAMENT PREFERRING TO STAY AT HOME, OR A SIMPLE MAN, OR JACOB WAS A QUIET SORT WHO LIKED TO STAY HOME, OR A COMPLETE MAN.

NOT ONE BIBLE I HAVE SAYS THAT JACOB WAS A PERFECT MAN.  I WONDER WHY?

SO WHY WAS JACOB PERFECT WITH THE LORD OUR GOD?  BECAUSE JACOB WALKED IN THE STATUTES OF GOD, AND KEPT THE COMMANDMENTS OF THE LORD, EVERY LAW OF GOD DURING THE DAYS OF JACOB.  1 KINGS 8.60-61

SO GOD SAID TO ABRAHAM, IN ISAAC SHALL YOUR SEED BE CALLED.

ESAU HAD ZERO INTEREST IN GOD, WHILE HIS TWIN BROTHER JACOB LIVED HIS LIFE FOR GOD.  AND GOD NAMED JACOB, ISRAEL.

JACOB AND HIS FOUR WIVES, OR HIS TWO WIVES AND TWO CONCUBINES HAD TWELVE SONS AND A DAUGHTER DINAH.

THEREFORE THE JEWISH PEOPLE WHO ARE ISRAEL DESCEND FROM ISAAC, AND JACOB, AND JACOB’S TWELVE SONS.

JACOB’S DAUGHTER DINAH IS NOT MENTIONED AFTER GENESIS 46.15.

THEN OF COURSE, THERE ARE THOSE PEOPLE WHO CONVERT TO JUDAISM AND THEY BECOME FULLY JEWISH WITH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

SO FROM THE TIME THAT GOD NAMED JACOB ISRAEL, ALL THE DESCENDANTS OF ISAAC AND JACOB AND JACOB’S TWELVE SONS ARE CALLED IN HEBREW, B’NAI YISRAEL, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.

THUS THE JEWISH PEOPLE ARE FROM JACOB’S TWELVE SONS WHO ARE THE FATHERS OF THE TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL.

THEREFORE THE PEOPLE WHO DESCEND FROM ISAAC AND JACOB ARE ISRAEL, THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

SO IT WAS ONLY NATURAL TO CALL THE PROMISED LAND THE LAND OF ISRAEL WHEN 3,400 YEARS AGO, THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL POSSESSED IT AND LIVED IN THE PROMISED LAND.  A LAND THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION. GENESIS 17.8

HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD KNOW AND ACCEPT THE FACT THAT GOD HAS GIVEN THE LAND OF ISRAEL TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION?

WHO UNDERSTANDS THOSE WORDS SPOKEN BY GOD?  HOW LONG WILL THE NATIONS WORK OVERTIME TO PUSH THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMELAND ISRAEL WITHOUT SUCCESS?

WE SEE AND WITNESS ALMOST EVERY DAY HOW THE NATIONS CONTINUE THEIR SICK DESIRE TO PUSH THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR HOMELAND WITH ZERO SUCCESS.  AND THE NATIONS WILL NOT GIVE UP UNTIL THE LORD GOD MESSIAH YESHUA RETURNS.  AND IN A MOMENT GOD THE MESSIAH WILL DESTROY ALL THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST JERUSALEM.  IT IS WRITTEN IN ZECHARIAH 14.1-15.

WHEN IT HAPPENS, THIS GREAT PLAGUE FROM GOD THAT WILL DESTROY THE NATIONS WILL BE THE END OF THIS WORLD AS WE KNOW IT.  AND THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL WILL BEGIN IN THE GOD-GIVEN BORDERS OF ISRAEL FROM A RIVER IN EGYPT TO THE EUPHRATES RIVER.  GENESIS 15.18-21

AND MESSIAH YESHUA WILL BE KING OVER ALL THE EARTH FROM JERUSALEM.

AS A POINT OF INFORMATION, THE LAW OF MOSES IS CALLED, THE LORD’S LAW, MY LAW, AS IN GOD’S LAW, THE LAW, THE BOOK OF THE LAW OF GOD, THE LAW OF TRUTH, THE LAW OF RIGHTEOUS, THE PERFECT LAW OF LIBERTY (FROM SIN AND DEATH), AND THE LAW OF MOSES.

LET’S LOOK AT SOME SCRIPTURES IN THE OLD  TESTAMENT AND THE NEW TESTAMENT ABOUT GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES THAT MIGHT OPEN YOUR EYES A LITTLE BIT.

EXODUS 13.9, EXODUS 16.4, DEUTERONOMY 4.44, JOSHUA 24.26, MALACHI 2.6, HEBREW BIBLE MALACHI 3.22, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MALACHI 4.4, MATTHEW 5.17, LUKE 2.23, LUKE 16.17, ROMANS 7.12, 25, ROMANS 9.31, JAMES 1.25, 1 JOHN 3.4

WHERE DOES IT SAY ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE THAT GOD ABOLISHED THE LAW OF MOSES?  NO WHERE.

GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW FOR ALL THE WORLD, FOR ALL HUMANITY.  AND THAT LAW IS GOD’S LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES.  ROMANS 3.29-31

ISRAEL IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE SOME 2,567 TIMES.  AND THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, NOW KNOWN AS THE JEWISH PEOPLE, ARE ONE OF THE OLDEST PEOPLES ON EARTH.  WE ARE 4,000 YEARS OLD.  AND THE BIBLE IS WRITTEN BY JEWISH PEOPLE.

THE FIRST TIME THE NAME JEW OR JEWISH IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN THE SYRIANS DROVE THE JEWISH PEOPLE OUT OF ELATH.  TODAY ELATH IS ELAT IN SOUTHERN ISRAEL ON THE RED SEA.  2 KINGS 16.6

THE HEBREW WORD FOR JEW OR JEWISH IS YEHUDI THAT MEANS PRAISER OF GOD.

ISRAEL, WHO ARE THE JEWISH PEOPLE, AND ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE EARTH GET THEMSELVES INTO TROUBLE, INTO WARS, CRIME, MURDERS, GREED, PAIN, HURRICANES, FIRES, EARTHQUAKES, FATAL SICKNESSES, AND ALL KINDS OF GRIEF BECAUSE OF THEIR DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.  BECAUSE THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH DISOBEY THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD WRITTEN IN TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES AND THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE.

HAD THE WORLD PAID ATTENTION TO THE LORD THEIR GOD AND OBEYED HIS LAWS AND COMMANDMENTS, THEY WOULD HAVE PEACE AS A RIVER, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS WOULD BE AS THE WAVES OF THE SEA.  ISAIAH 48.16-18

DEUTERONOMY 26.1  WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE.

YOU KNOW, AN INHERITANCE REMAINS WITH THOSE WHO INHERIT SOMETHING FOR AS LONG AS THEY LIVE, OR UNTIL THEY SELL IT TO SOMEONE ELSE.  THAT’S WHY GOD SAYS, THE LAND OF ISRAEL SHALL NOT BE SOLD FOREVER, FOR THE LAND IS MINE.  FOR YOU ARE STRANGERS AND TENANTS WITH ME.  LEVITICUS 25.23

GOD PROPHESIES THAT THE NAME ISRAEL, AND MANY JEWISH PEOPLE WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD AS THE NEW HEAVENS AND THE NEW EARTH WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD.  AND THAT IS FOREVER.

THE NEW EARTH IS HEAVEN THAT WILL BE CALLED THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM THAT WILL COME DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN PREPARED AS A BRIDE ADORNED FOR HER HUSBAND.  AND THAT WILL HAPPEN IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE 1,000 YEAR MESSIANIC KINGDOM ON EARTH IN ISRAEL.

THEREFORE GOD SAYS THAT MANY JEWISH PEOPLE AND THE NAME ISRAEL WILL REMAIN BEFORE THE LORD FOREVER.

ISAIAH 66.22, REVELATION 21.1-5

BACK TO DEUTERONOMY 26. 1, 2, 3  WHEN YOU COME INTO THE LAND WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU FOR AN INHERITANCE, AND POSSESS IT, AND LIVE IN IT,

YOU SHALL THEN TAKE THE FIRST OF ALL THE FRUITS OF THE GROUND WHICH YOU SHALL BRING OF YOUR LAND THAT THE LORD YOUR GOD GIVES YOU, AND SHALL PUT IT IN A BASKET, AND SHALL GO TO THE PLACE WHICH THE LORD YOUR GOD SHALL CHOOSE TO CAUSE HIS NAME TO DWELL THERE.  THAT WOULD BE THE TEMPLE.

AND YOU SHALL GO TO THE PRIEST WHOMEVER HE SHALL BE IN THOSE DAYS, AND SHALL SAY TO HIM, I DECLARE THIS DAY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD THAT I HAVE COME INTO THIS LAND WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO OUR FATHERS TO GIVE US.

IN VERSE 3, THE PERSON WITH THE TITHE IS TO SAY TO THE PRIEST OF THAT DAY, I PROFESS THIS DAY TO THE LORD YOUR GOD THAT I HAVE COME INTO THIS LAND, (THE LAND OF ISRAEL) WHICH THE LORD SWORE TO OUR FATHERS TO GIVE US.

THIS PAST MONDAY AT OUR SERVICE FOR THE EIGHTH DAY OF TABERNACLES, WE DISCUSSED A SCRIPTURE THAT IS WORTH REPEATING.

ZECHARIAH 12.1  THE BURDEN OF THE WORD OF THE LORD FOR ISRAEL, SAITH THE LORD, WHO STRETCHES FORTH THE HEAVENS, AND LAYS THE FOUNDATION OF THE EARTH, AND FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

THE BURDEN OF THE WORD OF THE LORD IS SOMETHING SAID BY THE LORD.

THE WORD SPIRIT COMES FROM THE HEBREW WORD RUAKH THAT MEANS BREATH.  AND BREATH IS LIFE.  AND THAT BREATH AND LIFE IS GOD.  GOD GIVES EVERY HUMAN LIFE WHEN HE BREATHES THE SPIRIT OF LIFE INTO US AT BIRTH OR BEFORE BIRTH.  AND GOD FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

LET’S LOOK AT GENESIS 2.7  AND THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND AND BREATHED INTO HIS NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE, AND MAN BECAME A LIVING SOUL.

THE HEBREW WORD FOR FORMED, AS IN, THE LORD GOD FORMED MAN, IS YAH’STAHR.  THE SAME HEBREW WORD GOD USES IN ZECHARIAH 12.1 WHEN HE SAID, HE FORMS THE SPIRIT OF MAN WITHIN HIM.

GOD FORMED EVERY HUMAN BEING, MEANING THAT GOD SQUEEZES INTO SHAPE, MOLDS INTO FORM, AND DETERMINES.

GOD DETERMINES WHO WE ARE.  GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING ABOUT US.  GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING PEOPLE WILL DO, OR NOT DO.  EVEN THE FACT THAT GOD WAS PERFECTLY ABLE TO PROMISE ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB TO GIVE THEIR DESCENDANTS, THE JEWISH PEOPLE, THE LAND OF CANAAN THAT WOULD BECOME ISRAEL, THE JEWISH HOMELAND FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION SOME 700 YEARS BEFORE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CONQUERED THE PROMISED LAND CANAAN THAT BECAME ISRAEL.

BECAUSE GOD DETERMINES WHO AND WHAT EVERY PERSON WILL BE.  AND GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING EVERY HUMAN WILL DO, OR NOT DO.

I WAS READING THE STORY OF RUTH THE OTHER DAY.  NAOMI AND HER HUSBAND, AND THEIR TWO SONS WENT TO LIVE IN MOAB BECAUSE OF A FAMINE IN ISRAEL.  MOAB WOULD BE IN CURRENT-DAY JORDAN.

NAOMI’S HUSBAND DIED.  THEN HER TWO SONS WHO WERE MARRIED TO MOABITE WOMEN DIED.  ONE OF NAOMI’S DAUGHTER’S-IN-LAW WAS RUTH.

AND NATURALLY NAOMI WAS CRUSHED AS WERE HER TWO DAUGHTERS-IN-LAW.  BUT GOD DOES THINGS FOR HIS PURPOSE, AND FOR OUR GOOD.

GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING.

AND NAOMI BROUGHT RUTH TO BETHLEHEM-JUDAH IN ISRAEL.  HER OTHER DAUGHTER-IN-LAW REMAINED IN MOAB.

AND RUTH ENDS UP MARRYING BOAZ, A JEWISH MAN FROM BETHLEHEM.  IN YEARS TO COME, BOAZ BECAME THE GREAT GRANDFATHER OF KING DAVID, AND AN ANCESTOR OF MESSIAH YESHUA.  AND RUTH, THE WIFE OF BOAZ BECAME THE GREAT GRANDMOTHER OF KING DAVID.  AND THE ANCESTOR OF THE MESSIAH YESHUA.

GOD DETERMINED THAT ALSO FOR HIS PURPOSE.  EVEN THOUGH THREE PEOPLE HAD TO DIE.  KING DAVID IS FROM BETHLEHEM, AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA MUST BE A DESCENDANT OF KING DAVID, AND MESSIAH MUST BE BORN IN BETHLEHEM.

RUTH 4.13-22, MATTHEW 1.1-6, JEREMIAH 23.5, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1, CHRISTIAN BIBLE MICAH 5.2, ROMANS 8.28

LOOK BACK ON YOUR LIVES TO THIS DAY.  YOU PERHAPS WENT THROUGH SOME DIFFICULT TIMES BUT NOW YOU ARE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD, INHERITING ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN, LIVING BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES TORAH, THE LAW OF MOSES.

GOD DETERMINED THAT FOR YOU.

GENESIS 15.18-21, GENESIS 17.8, GENESIS 26.1-5, GENESIS 35.9-13, ISAIAH 46.9-11

SO, WILL PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP BE IMPEACHED OUT OF OFFICE, OR WILL HE REMAIN PRESIDENT FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS?  ASK GOD.  GOD DETERMINED THAT A LONG TIME AGO.  GOD PUT DONALD TRUMP IN OFFICE AS GOD DOES EVERY LEADER OF ALL THE NATIONS, PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE.  AND GOD DETERMINES WHEN HE WILL TAKE THEM OUT OF OFFICE AT HIS GOOD TIME.

JEREMIAH 27.4, 5, DANIEL 4.17, 32, 35, DANIEL 5.21

AND GOD DETERMINED BEFORE THE CREATION THAT HE WOULD GIVE THE LAND OF CANAAN TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE TO BE THE JEWISH HOMELAND ISRAEL FOR AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION.

THEREFORE GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING BECAUSE GOD FORMS AND DETERMINES THE LIFE OF EVERYONE ON EARTH.  AND GOD DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS IN THE HEAVENS, AND HE DETERMINES WHAT HAPPENS IN HEAVEN.

GOD BREATHES LIFE INTO EVERY HUMAN BEING AND EVERY LIVING CREATURE AND EVERY LIVING THING.  THE LIFE WE BREATHE IS GOD.  GOD LIVES IN US.  GOD LIVES IN EVERY LIVING HUMAN BEING, AND GOD LIVES IN EVERY LIVING THING, AND GOD DETERMINES EVERYTHING, ON EARTH, IN THE HEAVENS, AND IN HEAVEN.

Shalom,
