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 9 From The Book of
Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 9: 1 - 10:11
1.After they conquered the
promised land, what further danger would follow on the heels of victory? How
does Moses in this passage seek to safeguard them against it? Cf. Lk. 18:9-14.
2.What does the example of Moses
teach as to the responsibility and power of intercessory prayer? Note the costly nature of his prayer and the
uncompromising dealing with sin that accompanied it. On what grounds did Moses
base his plea for the people, and what was the outcome? Cf. Jas. 5:16.
3.The incident as a whole
demonstrates that God’s dealings with His people are entirely of grace. It thus illustrates aspects of the saving
grace of God revealed in the New Testament.
Try to discover how the following points are illustrated in this Chapter:
(a) the combination of grace and justice (Rom. 3:24-26); (b) the triumph of
grace over sin (Eph. 2:5; Rom. 5:20, 21); (c) the provision of a mediator (Heb.
8:6; 9:15); (d) the establishment of a covenant (1 Cor. 11:25).
Note. 9:22. ‘Taberah’ ‘burning’:
see Nu. 11:1-3. ‘Massah’: ‘proving’; see
Ex. 17:7; cf. Dt. 6:16. ‘Kilbroth-hattaavah’: graves of lust’; see Nu. 11:34.
