In Part 1 Moses commanded us to:
Forget Not: What we have seen and teach it to others
You will inherit the land, remember Gods covenant, worship Him, not money, power, prestige or people.
Rest on the Sabbath. …we must rest from our work to let God accomplish His.
So in Part 3 of Forget Not; We have this warning:
“And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eye shall have no pity upon them: neither shalt thou serve their gods; for that will be a snare unto thee. If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them?”
The Hebrew people were to destroy all nonbelievers that lived in the promised land, because if left alive they would cause the people of God to sin.
In todays world, when we accept the Lord as Savior, we must destroy all the sin and bad habits in our lives or they will haunt us and cause sin to trouble us in our walk with God.
“Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the Lord thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;”
Again, remember what the Lord has done. He will continue to protect and provide as we walk with Him. Gos is able to help us to conquer sin and death.
“thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.“
This to me is one of the verses in the Word that explains just about everything we incounter.
Why is there trouble, sickness, strife, it’s always something.
God wants a humble church. Not our power, strength, wisdom. We need to allow the Lord to administrate, our church needs to be built on the Lords plan.
We have allowed government into our churches when we decided we needed to be tax exempt. We need support from home for missionaries. (read and understand Mark 6).
Jesus didn’t need a pulpit, childrens church…even a building. We need to be obedient, so that God can use us as vessels of His power.
He tests our love, faith, trust…
We need to let God operate through us, give the cup of water, food, cash for the poor. Show the love of God.
Then there is the manifestation of the Spirit. How often have we quenched the Spirit? The evil heart of unbelief is probably the most abuse the Holy Spirit receives.
We don’t believe in tongues, healing or miracles. Wake up, pray the Lord forgives us. Annoints us, makes us willing and useful vessels.
I’m afraid in my life, He often finds a stiffnecked and rebellious person.
How about you?
