Proclamation for America

Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,

Your Word declares that if we, Your people, who are called by Your name, will humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn from our wicked ways, then will You hear from heaven and You will forgive our sin and will heal our land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

We bow before Your sacred throne and humbly ask Your forgiveness for the sin of idolatry! Your word demands; “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me”, yet we have, under the banner of pluralism and hedonism, embraced and worshipped the gods of this world. Take us back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! (Exodus 20:3)

Through moral and spiritual compromise and complacency, we have allowed our nation to conform to the ways of the world by turning away from our spiritual roots found in Your Word. (Romans 12:2)

Our silence has produced a secular nation and all nations that forget You, shall be forsaken. We ask that You hear our cry, for we need You, in these desperate times, to lead us out of our politically correct fog of constant confusion and take us back to Your moral clarity. (Psalm 9:17)

O Lord our God, King of the Universe, we confess that America cannot survive without Your presence. Your statutes founded this blessed land and we look to You, Father God, to preserve it, for “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.” (Psalm 33:12)

As commanded in scripture, we pray for all who are in authority who govern our nation; may their decisions be led by the perfect compass of your Holy Word which clearly discerns right from wrong. (I Timothy 2:1-3)

O Lord our God, You have promised to raise up righteous leaders into high places and to remove those who have displayed unrighteous authority. We earnestly pray that You will once again exalt the righteous and expose the deeds of the ungodly. (Proverbs 14:33-35)

America must have spiritual renewal for moral survival! In this season of prayer, we unite in humble heartfelt hope and ask that You forgive us and deliver us from the folly of our transgressions. Guide and sustain our nation as we turn from our sin and return to You, the God of our fathers. (Psalm 51:1-17)

The time has come to declare our trust in You to heal our land. (2 Samuel 22:2-4; Psalm 5:11-12; Psalm 57:1-3)

We pledge to exercise our God given rights of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in voting for future leaders from the county courthouse to the White House who obey and honor Your Word. (Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 119:44-48; Psalm5:11)

We pledge to vote the Bible in selecting those that will govern our country. (Deuteronomy 16:18-20)

Blessed are you, O Lord our God, for You are good and Your mercy endures forever. We petition heaven with our united prayers as we seek Your blessing, Your peace and Your protection for America. (I Chronicles 16:34; Numbers 6:22-26; Romans 15:13; Psalm 5:11)

May the Lord our God, be with us, as He was with our forefathers; may He not leave us or forsake us; so that He may incline our hearts to Himself, to walk in all His ways... that all peoples of the earth may know that the Lord is God and that there is no other. (1 Kings 8:57-60) Amen

Deuteronomy Overview, the 5th Book of The Law: "These Are The Words"



The foundation, the Law, The Torah, The Spirit, The Pentateuch, The Prophets; of Rememberance; Rehearsing of the Past; Moses in his discussion of Israel, he wanted them tof remember their history, who they were, where they came from, what their roots were all about; the promises that were given the fathers; How they were drawn out of Egypt as slaves; Recalling God's deliverance through the Red Sea; the forty years of wandering; the relationship with God and their future...

Meaning

The Second Law or Law Giving, from the Vulgate, and Septugint, from Hebrew to Greek, 2nd Century BC; The Ten Commandments:

Deuteronomy 5, Exodus 20 "...(The Ten Commandments Reviewed)... And Moses called all Israel, and said to them: "Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your hearing today, that you may learn them and be careful to observe them. The Lord our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The Lord did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive.

The Lord talked with you face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire. I stood between the Lord and you at at that time, to declare to you the word of the Lord; for you were afraid because of the fire, and you did not go up the mountain. He said: "I AM the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath , or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy, as the Lord your God commanded you.

Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall not do any work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your ox, nor your donkey, nor any of your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates, that your manservant and your maidservant may rest as well as you. And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord our God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.

Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord our God has commanded you, that our days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you. You shall not murder, You shall not commit adultery.

You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor's house, his field, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.

These words the Lord spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.

The People Afraid of God's Presence

So it was, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders. And you said: Surely the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have heard His voice form the midst of the fire. We have seen this day that God speaks with man; yet he still lives. Now therefore, why should we die? For this great fire will consume us; if we hear the voice of the Lord our God anymore, then we shall die.

For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living God speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived? You go near and hear all that the Lord our God may say, and tell us all that the Lord our God says to you, and we will hear and do it. Then the Lord heard the voice of your words when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me: "I have heard the voice of the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They are right in all that they have spoken.

Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear Me and always keep all M commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children forever! Go and say to them, "Return to your tents." But as for you, stand here by Me, and I will speak to you all the commandments, the statutes, and judgments which you shall teach them, that they may observe them in the land which I am giving them to possess.

Therefore you shall be careful to do as the Lord your God has commanded you; you shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left. You shall walk in all the ways which the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live and and that it may prolong your days in the land which you shall possess..."

The Ten Commandments

Exodus 20 "...And God spoke all these words, saying: "I AM the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.

You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me an keep My commandments.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work.

But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife; and you shall not desire your neighbor's house, his field, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.

The People Afraid of God's Presence

Now all the people witnessed the thunderings, the lightning flashes, the sound of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking; and when the people saw it, they trembled and stood afar off. Then they said to Moses, "You speak with us, and we wll hear; but let not God speak with us, lest we die." And Moses said to the people, "Do not fear for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin." So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was.

The Law of the Altar

Then the Lord said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: You have seen that I have talked with you from heaven. You shall not make anything to be with Me--gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves. An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and you shall sacrifice on it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your oxen. In every place where I record My name I wil come to you, and I will bless you. And if you make Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone; for if you use your tool on it, you have profaned it. Nor shall you go up by steps to My altar, that your nakedness may not be exposed on it..."

Jews Called:

"These Are The Words; Miseneh Hatora, "Copy of this Law"...

Deuteronomy 17:18-19 "...Also it shall be, when he sits on the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book, from the one before the priests, the Levites. And it shall be with him , and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes. (Writing The Law on our hearts)

(Writer: Moses, 1404-1403 B.C.)

The Law to be Read Every Seven Years

Deuteronomy 31:9, 24, 26 "...So Moses wrote this law and delivered it to the priests, the sons of Levi, who bore the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel..." (Intact as a scroll were the first five books, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy)... So it was, when Moses had completed writing the words of this Law in a book, when they were fnished,...Take this Book of the Law, and put it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, that it may be there as a witness against you;..."

Ezra Reads the Law

Nehemiah 8:1 "...When the seventh month came, the children of Israel were in their cities. Now all the people gathered together as one man in the open square that was in front of the Water Gate; and they told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses, which the Lord had commanded Israel..."

Rember the Lord Your God

Deuteronomy 8:3 "...So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord..."

Matthew 4:4 "...But he answered and said, "It is written, Deuteronomy 8:3 Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God..."

Deuteronomy 18:13 "...You shall be blameless before the Lord your God..."

Matthew 5:48 "...Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect..."

The Law Concerning Witnesses

Dueteronomy 19:15 "...One witness shall not rise against a man concerning any iniquity or any sin that he commits; by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established..."

Matthew 18:16 "...But if he will not hear you, take with you one or two more, that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established..."

Law Concerning Divorce

Deuteronomy 24:1 "...When a man takes a wife and marries her, and it happens that she finds no favor in his eyes because he has found some uncleanness in her, and he writes her a certificate of divorce, puts it in her hand, and sends her out of his house,..."

Matthew 19:7-8 "...They said to them, "Why then did Moses command to give a certificate of divorce, and to put her away? He said to them, "Moses, because of the hardness of your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it was not so..."

THEME: Final instructions for possessing the promised land; "Go and posess the land" and "the land which the Lord God gives you" is mentioned sixty-nine times; rehearsal of history

The Previous Command to Enter Canaan

Deuteronomy 1:8,21 "...See, I have set the land before you; go in and possess the land which the Lord swore to your fathers--to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob--to give to them and their descendants after them...Look, the Lord your God has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the Lord God of your fathers has spoken to you; do not fear or be discouraged..."

Fruit Of The Land

Deuteronomy 2:14, 24 "...And the time we took to come from Kadesh Barnea until we crossed over the Valley of the Zered was thirty-eight years, (39 and one-half years since first tried to possess the land) until all the generation of the men of war was consumed from the midst of the camp, just as the Lord had sworn to them. "Rise, take your journey, and cross over the River Arnon. Look, I have given into your hand Sihon the Amorite, king of Heshbon, and his land. Begin to possess it, and engage him in battle..." (On the east side of the Jordan; most of the land was possessed under Joshua)

(3) To give instructions for entering the promised land, a definite pattern and direction that God wanted them to follow through on

See Deuteronomy 5:30-33

Joshua the New Leader of Israel

Deuteronomy 31:1-6 "...Then Moses went and spoke these words to all Israel. And he said to them: "I am one hundred and twenty years old today. I can no longer go out and come in. Also the Lord has said to me, "You shall not cross over this Jordan."

"The Lord your God Himself crosses over before you; He will destroy these nations from before you, and you shall dispossess them. Joshua himself crosses over before you, just as the Lord has said. And the Lord will do to them as He did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites and their land, when He destroyed them. The Lord will give them over to you, that you may do to them according to every commandment which I have commanded you.

Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord our God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you..."

His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor abated..." (By Passover of the next month Joshua was leading the children of Israel)

(8) Possession of the Land and Obedience

Deuteronomy 4:25-27 "...When you beget children and grandchildren and have grown old in the land, act corruptly and make a carved image in the form of anything, and do evil in the sight of the Lord your God to provoke Him to anger, I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that you will soon utterly perish from the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess; you will not prolong your days in it but will be utterly destroyed. And theLord will scatter you among the peoples, and you will be left few in number among the nations where the Lord will drive you..."

For it is not a futile thing for you, because it is your life, and by ths word you shall prolong your days in the land which you cross over the Jordan to possess..."

(9) Israel was to Be a Holy Nation

Deuteronomy 7:5-6 "...But thus you shall deal with them: you shall destroy their altars, and break down their sacred pillars, and cut down their wooden images, and burn their carved images with fire.

Romans 12:1-2 "...I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God..."

Deuteronomy 26:18-19 "...Also today the Lord has proclaimed you to be His special people, just as He has promised you, that you should keep all His commandments, and that He will set you high above all nations which He has made, in praise, in name , and in honor, and that you may be a holy people to the Lord your God, just as He has spoken..."

Romans 6:19, 22 "...I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleaness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members for holiness. But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves to God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life..."

Exodus 19:5-6 "...Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.

What is your reading of it?

And He Jesus said to him, "You have answered rightly; do this and you will live..."
