Who Can Replace Moses?



We cover a lot of territory as we remember how Moses failed at Kadesh and was told by God that he wouldn’t be entering the Promised Land. Then we progress through Moses preparing himself, the children of Israel, Joshua, and future generations for his death. Moses finishes well. We can and should admire him. And see who finally replaces and exceeds Moses as Prophet, Priest, and King.

Numbers 20, Numbers 27, Deuteronomy 3, Deuteronomy 31, Deuteronomy 34.

Do not forget



There can be so many distractions and discouragements that tempt us to subtly forget who God is. If we have hard times, we are tempted to doubt Him and His character. If we have it good, we are tempted to forget Him and keep the glory for ourselves. We give God the blame and steal the credit. But Moses warns us to not forget who we often are and remember who God always is.
(also, my memory failed and I misquoted Matthew Henry’s fourth thankful. He was thankful that he wasn’t the one who stole a wallet.)

Moses Reminds



After forty years in the wilderness, Moses gives the next generation a reminder of what was taught at Mount Sinai, renewing the covenant between the LORD and Israel. The Ten Commandments and the Greatest Commandment – the Shema. Listen and obey! Love the LORD our God. He loved us first

Purpose in the Wilderness



The children of Israel refused to trust God and questioned His love, preferring instead to die in the wilderness than enter the promised land. So the LORD gave them death in the wilderness for the next forty years. But God had other purposes for the wilderness for the children of those generations of rebels. His mercy may not always feel like mercy, if we learn the lessons of the wilderness, we are prepared for our promised land of heaven.

God Comes First



We start our series on the 10 Commandments. And the first commands are that God comes first, in everything. First in our allegiance, loyalty, and love – God has liberated His people to be their Protection, Provider, and Guide. And nothing else (money, person, ideology, nor state) can do what He has already done. Thus He deserves no competition for our attention.

Bread of Life



Within a month of their miraculous deliverance from Egypt followed by the Red Sea crossing, the children of Israel are having second thoughts on having left their slavery. Their food ran out. But the LORD allowed them to hunger in order to test them and feed them in His own miraculous way. But the manna from heaven was only a physical symbol of a spiritual reality that we all need to learn. Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from God.

What Does God Require of us?



Moses was about to exit stage left and among his parting words to the children of Israel were these thoughts of what God really wanted from His chosen people.  The LORD has the authority to make expectations and hold us accountable for them.  How do we measure up to what God wants from us?  What can we do about it?

Working Together for the Next Generation



The message this week is fast and brief.  We were blessed to hear Bro. Jay Norton from the Gideons International share about the power of God’s Word to transform lives and their ministry to get the Word of God there.  We are thankful to help support that mission, both local and global. 

Sorry, but the audio does not contain Bro. Jay but only contains Bro. Brad briefly sharing the importance of investing our lives to knowing God through His Word and sharing Him to the Next Generation.  In the audio, we left in a prayer from Mason if you can hear it.  He’s a blessing to our church.  And it’s a little reminder why you may not hear the entire Sunday morning worship service.  Brad is recording the audio with his phone in his shirt pocket.
