This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 3 From The Book of
Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 3
1.How did the conquest of Sihon
and of Og disprove the faithless fears of forty years before? Cf. 1:28 with
2:36 and 3:4-6. What use did later
generations make of the memory of these victories? Cf. Jos. 2:10; Pss. 135: 10,
2.What do verses 21, 22 teach us
about the duty of mutual encouragement? Cf. how Paul sought to share his assurance
(2 Tim.1:12) with others (Phil. 1:6).
3.Try to imagine the intensity of
Moses’ desire in verses 24, 25. What insight are we given into prayer and its
answer by this incident? Cf. Nu. 2. 20:12; Ps. 106:32, 33.
4.Verse 26: ‘Let it suffice
you’. Moses must be content with his own
place in God’s work. He was the law-giver, and Joshua (Hebrew form of ‘Jesus’)
was the conqueror. How does Jn. 1:17 throw light on this?
1.Verse 11. ‘Bedstead’: or possibly ‘Sarcophagus’. It was
eleven feet long and six broad.
2.Verses 13-15. This double
division of the tribe of Manasseh greatly weakened it, thus fulfilling Gn.
48:14ff., in which Ephraim, although the younger of the two sons of Joseph, is
given priority over Manasseh.
3.Verse 29. “Beth-peor’:
‘house of Peor’, the Moabite god through which the people sinned (Nu.25).
