The past is like the burning bush from the book of Exodus. It is always there but you can’t stay near it for too long. It needs to be acknowledged and moved beyond. One of the purposes of Deuteronomy was for Israel to recollect its past and determine never to repeat its mistakes.
Here is what I see in today’s chapters:
Deuteronomy chapter 8 sermon topics/titles:
1. This Is Only a Test: Deut. 8:1-3
2. Forgetting God In the Good: Deut. 8: 7-14
3. The Covenant Of Success: Deut. 8: 15-20
Deuteronomy chapter 9 sermon topics/ titles:
1. There Will Be Giants: Deut. 9:1,2
2. Burning Up Your Giants: Deut. 9:3
3. Because Somebody Prayed: Deut. 9:25-29

I am so glad you joined us! “The Rock Cried water and Bled His Blood” is a very interesting title. I would love to read this blog or hear this sermon. I also really like “The Father, the Son and the Promise”. That title really preaches!
oh thanks 🙂
– “the Rock cried water and bleed His blood ”
I remember Jesus shedding water and blood at the cross.
– “The Father, the Son and the Promise ”
The father , we know abraham is
The son isaac, we know is typified as Jesus when offered in mount moriah
Jacob, was later renamed by God to Israel. which means the promise
– “the untouchables : bread, wine and oil”
in the book of revelation are the three things that are not touch (Revelation 6:6)
– “He was chastise & scourgeth so you will not be”
I believe this verse God disciplines those whom He loves … is used in the book of Hebrews. upon checking the greek for discipline, it was to chasten, scourged.
checking scourge, it was to tie in a pole and beat. we know very well , Jesus was tied to a pole and was beaten.
– “who broke the ten commandments”
I believe moses was the first one to break it 🙂
– grace and peace
Great explanations! Thanks!
Loved savedbygrace joining in! And your “because someone prayed” sounded wonderful, Pastor J! God bless you!
These are my favorites, from Pastor J, “Because Somebody Prayed” and from savedbygrace, “The Father, the Son and the Promise ” these really touched my heart.
1. Will you live by His every word? Deut. 8:3
2. Never forget the source of your celebration. Deut. 8:10-18
3. There can only be one in your life. Deut. 8:19-20
1. Faith that reaches beyond the skies. Deut. 9:1
2. The power that comes from fasting and prayer. Deut. 9:13-20
3. Resorting to reverse psychology. Deut. 9:25-29.
“Never Forget the Source of Your Celebration!” Wow! Wow! Wow! That one just hit me like a ton of bricks. I had forgotten for a moment! Thanks Deb! I praise Jesus!
Thank you, Pastor J
Love this!! “This Is Only a Test: Deut. 8:1-3”
“Were this a real emergency you would receive instructions as to what to do!” 🙂 Do you remember the emergency broadcast system? When you think of it, it is a great illustration of how God deals with us!
