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 7 From The Book of
Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 7
1.In what four ways were the
Israelites to deal with the idolatrous inhabitants of Canaan (verses 1-5)? What
points regarding the Christian’s duty of separation from sin and the world do
they illustrate? Cf. Eph. 5:11; 2 Cor. 6:14-18; Jn. 5:21.
2.In verses 6-11 what three
reasons does God give the people for this drastic attitude? What New Testament
principles correspond to this? Cf. 1 Pet. 1:15, 16; 2:9-12.
3.In verses 12-16 what three
blessings does God promise will attend the faithful pursuit of this policy?
What blessings are promised in the New Testament to the Christian who practises
spiritual separation? Cf. 2 Cor. 6:17,
16; 1 Jn. 2:15-17.
4.In verses 18-26 how does God
answer their question of verse 17? What does this teach about the power given to
the Christian to ‘be separate’? Cf. 2 Cor. 14-16; Jn. 16:33; Rom. 5:10; 1 Jn.
1.Verse 2. ‘Utterly destroy’: The
Hebrew word means ‘to separate to a deity’ and hence ‘to put to death’ or
‘destroy’ as here, and in verse 25, 26.
5.Verse 20. ‘Hornets’ are
powerful insects, whose attack in large numbers is dangerous and may prove
fatal. Some take the word, however, here and in Ex. 23:28 and Jos. 24:12, in a
figurative sense, as meaning some plague or terror that spreads dismay.
