Deuteronomy 18

The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and his inheritance.

Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.

And this shall be the priest’s due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.

The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.

For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.

And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the Lord shall choose;

Then he shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the Lord.

They shall have like portions to eat, beside that which cometh of the sale of his patrimony.

When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.

17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?

22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

  1. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    We must always watch for the devil’s snares and tricks because he is always wanting to distract us from our walk with the lord and to try and pull our eyes off of the savior, and whenever we encounter one of he’s distractions we must stand strong and stand true to the word of god because it’s through god’s word which we are led and our strength comes from the lord.

  2. 2 Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.
    3 And this shall be the priest’s due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep; and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.

    It should not just be the church’s obligation to take care of the ministry but rather the privilege and the honor to take care of the ministry. In this day where everything is questioned, even the most sacred of things is placed under microscope and scrutinized over every little detail. We, the church, must be protective and care for the ministry that looks out for us. The ministry sacrifices for the sake of the church it serves the purpose on the spiritual needs of the people. The church is alive because of Christ working through the ministry. Therefore, the church should be honored and willing to cover them as well.

  3. “Remember that the Levitical priests—that is, the whole of the tribe of Levi—will receive no allotment of land among the other tribes in Israel. Instead, the priests and Levites will eat from the special gifts given to the Lord , for that is their share.
    Deuteronomy 18:1 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/deu.18.1.NLT

    Call to ministry! There are certain “freedoms” and privileges that are enjoyed by some that the priests don’t get to partake of. The inheritance of land to pass down to children is a heritage and greatly appreciated. It’s not so for the priests. Since they’re dedicated to the Lord, their rewards are souly from Him.

  4. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

    19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

    Even from the time of Moses and the children of Israel, God has spoken to beware of those that claim to be a prophet and speak on the behalf of God and yet God did not command the prophet to speak. Simply stating those that are prophesying falsely will surely be put to death. We are in the last days that God speaks of in his word. There will be many that will come in his name but do not posses the truth. There will be many that speak the word but does not contain the power of the word. We have to be in the word of God and have a relationship with God so that we may be able to discern the spirit of the false doctrine and false prophets.

    We don’t only have a responsibility to our family, our church, our pastor, but also to the Lord Jesus to know the word and know how to speak the word. We have to have the ability to study the word in depth so that we may discern the evilness of this world. We must remember that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to be pulling down the strongholds and casting down every imagination and wicked thing that exalts itself against the kingdom of God. We can conquer the enemy if we remain faithful to God and his word.

  5. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

    21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?

    22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

    When our Shepherd (pastor) speaks a word over us that the Lord has given him, we should obey our Shepherd’s voice. God will always confirm His word.

  6. 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

    The responsibility of a prophet it’s very hard, for they must harken to God’s voice at all time, discerning what is from God and what is not, for it is his life on the line. May the Lord always make clear what He needs and wants from me in His Kingdom, for all I want and need it’s in Him alone.

  7. Speak Lord to our hearts.
    As we are led by You help our hearts and minds to be aware of those who may try to lead us away from truth. Help us to rededicate our life to You daily.

    Help us to realize it is not in our own possessions that our inheritance is found but it is in You.
    Possessions can be stolen become rusty useless be stored away and even completely lost but You will forever remain the same. The treasures of this earth hold no true value. The flesh loves to find fulfillment in things and even in knowing that someone left an inheritance for us. Disappointing when what you thought belonged to you or was going to belong to you slips right through your hands. The natural man becomes offended hurt disappointed . Oh but what an inheritance of eternal life . Knowing that You are the Provider of all. That Your Inheritance supersedes anything imaginable.
    The Levitical Priesthood lived by the tithe they owned nothing but what was provided. There inheritance only came through the offerings of the other tribes .
    Living by the hand of God . If at anytime we thus judge anyone in ministry for the blessings bestowed upon them we need to be reminded who is doing the providing. God Himself. For the Lord is their inheritance!
    Deuteronomy 18 The Levitical priests—indeed, the whole tribe of Levi—are to have no allotment or inheritance with Israel. They shall live on the food offerings presented to the Lord, for that is their inheritance. 2 They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the Lord is their inheritance, as he promised them.

    The Lord will provide !

  8. 1. The priests the Levites, and all the tribe of Levi, shall have no part nor inheritance with Israel: they shall eat the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and his inheritance.

    2. Therefore shall they have no inheritance among their brethren: the Lord is their inheritance, as he hath said unto them.

    Like the priests of old, our inheritance is not this physical land we live on; our inheritance is eternity around God’s throne. When that trumpet sounds, we won’t care one bit how much land we owned down here.

    1 Peter 2:9
    But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

    This world is not my home
    I’m just a passing through
    My treasures are laid up
    Somewhere beyond the blue
    The angels beckon me
    From Heaven’s open door
    And I can’t feel at home
    In this world anymore

  9. 9“When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there.

    As one travels overseas, or someone in the military visits other nations, you don’t have to be swayed to worship other gods or idols. If God is within you, you won’t have to worry about being easily influenced.

  10. Deut.18 :8-9 [Amp] They shall have equal portions to eat, besides what many come of the sale of his patrimony.
    [9] When you come into land which the Lord your God gives you , you shall not learn to follow the abomination practices of these nations.
    We are wolves dress in sheep clothing trying to lure us away from God. There are churches that are not teaching the Truth. We must be careful who we let in our home. And who we hang around with.
    There only one true God and his is Jesus. Jesus is the only way to the truth. Lord I pled your blood on homes and our family’s. Amen the Lord will provide.

  11. 5 For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.

    The man got to get paid.

    6 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the Lord shall choose;

    7 Then he shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the Lord.

    The Evangelist,

    19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    The preaching word,

    20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

    That’s for anybody that has assumed to Heard from the Lord.

    A.L.M.A.S.

  12. 3 And this shall be the priest’s due from the people, from them that offer a sacrifice, whether it be ox or sheep: and they shall give unto the priest the shoulder, and the two cheeks, and the maw.

    4 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thy oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt though give him.

    5 For the LORD thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons for ever.

    Thank you Lord God for Pastor Watts!!!

    Hallelujah!!

    Praise the Lord God!!

    Deu 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
    Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
    Deu 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

    When I read this portion of scripture I couldn’t help but think of how the world we live in today glorifies the occult. You might say, “Ahhhh brother Morgan, how could you say that?” It’s quite easy to say that, because it’s true. Think about all the animated videos out there that glorify wizards, witches, and spells. One of the newest is Moana from Disney. This film glorifies tattoos, the worship of many gods, reincarnation, and mythology.

    We must be careful to guard ourselves of the dangers of the same pagan practices of the ancient world. We must not allow them to creep into our homes under the disguise of animation that was warned about thousands of years ago in scripture.

  14. 18:13 You shall be perfect, before the Lord your God.
    ——
    When our desire is to please God, the that motivates us to obey.then that will cause us to walk in righteousness in every way.then that will start changing our character
    And we will be Christ like.( a truly Christian )
    I want to be perfect before God!!!!

  15. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    God has granted us possession of the land. 🎶This world is my home, I’m just passing through earthly treasures soon will fade…..🎶 knowing that this is not our permanent home, we need to stay in track. Yes it’s nice, shiny, attractive, fun etc. At the end it leads to destruction, lost of our salvation and death! Keep in track brother and sister, the finish line is near.

  16. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

    Its a common reset to life that we adapt to the things that are around us. This does not only apply to coming to a new land or a new town, but it applies to everyday occurrences. Its so easy to adapt to the environment because our flesh wants to go with flow, well because its much easier then discipline and obedience. I catch myself throughout the day chiming in on not so christian conversations, and i have to have enough discipline and control to walk away, because the flesh wants to stay. Its like we are put under a “spell” by the things this world offers. 😆

    13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

    14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

    Pray, do his works, keep his law, understand and practice his traditions. God created a whole universe put everything and everyone in it. He brought us out of bondage set us on a solid foundation, took care of us in the wilderness and brought us to the land that flowed with milk and honey. Gave us the power to conquer nations, tear down strongholds, and demolish the enemy. God gave us himself, robed in flesh, for all the sin in the world. We are washed by the blood and covered in his glory. We are called to do his will and not the will of the world, and to love one another as he has loved us. His word is enough, his grace is enough, his mercy has surpassed.

  17. “For the LORD your God has chosen him out of all your tribes to stand to minister in the name of the LORD, him and his sons forever.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
    This Scripture means that, back in the New Testament God would choose certain people to lead their tribes to be leaders. In modern society God chooses people out of the world to work in his Kingdom and are set out to be an example for those who are in need, And people have free will if they want to participate in his Kingdom.

  18. God has said that witchcraft is an abomination. There is much in this world that is evil. I ask God for a hedge of protection daily. We must stay in God’s word as He is stronger than the enemy. We must also pray continuously for our brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you POFW family.

  19. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    We must not get comfortable with the blessing of the Lord. Too many times people pray for God to bless them with something specific, and then when it happens, they backslid, start missing church, they begin to abuse the blessing God gave them.

    He admonishes us when we come into that promised land, do not learn the ways of that nation. When we come into the promised that God has for us, we must still keep JESUS first in all that we do, so that our blessing doesn’t become our curse.

    PROPHETS REVEALED

    21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?
    22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

    People often wonder when a word from a favorite preacher will come to pass. We learn from this passage that if the word is not from GOD and only the man speaking. Then it will not come to pass and that prophet will have spoken falsely.

    We should look to the WORD of GOD for real and true prophesies. GOD is ready to answer HIS WORDS however, men often speak things that they say are from the Lord and eventually realize that the word was not from GOD.

    This is why the WORD of GOD is the most important and valued book that we can receive a WORD from. YES it is scriptural and powerful when GOD uses man to confirm HIS Word. However the only ABSOLUTE Word is the Bible.

  21. Deuteronomy 18:18-19
    18) I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
    19) And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    This is talking about JESUS.
    Jesus said in St. John 12:49-50, “49) For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. 50) And I know that his commandment is life everlasting; whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.”

    This is talking about JESUS. Read Acts 3:20-26

  22. 21“But you may wonder, ‘How will we know whether or not a prophecy is from the Lord?’ 22If the prophet speaks in the Lord’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the Lord did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.”

    The Lord reveals to us what a true prophet and a false prophet is. A true Prophet speaks the truth of the Lord doing and his wonders, and his miracles that will come to happen and the Lord tells us that a false prophet well speak the Lord’s name but if that prophecy or prediction doesn’t come true than he reveals himself that he is a false prophet.
    ‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:21-22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  23. “Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord. It is because the other nations have done these detestable things that the Lord your God will drive them out ahead of you. But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. The nations you are about to displace consult sorcerers and fortune-tellers, but the Lord your God forbids you to do such things.””
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:12-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God’s judgment was upon the Canaanites because of these occult practices, and if Israel took up the same occult practices, they could also expect the judgment of God. The Same goes for us today.

  24. Then he shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the Lord.

    Before they knew the name of God they still preached oneness. They understood there is power in the name, they understood value of the name. They never called out to the father, son and Holy Ghost. But they would call out to the name of lord almighty. They minister About the father and the son to come but they ministered in the name.

  25. With the Lord thy God

    Deuteronomy 18:13 KJV
    [13] Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

    Philippians 4:19 KJV
    [19] But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

    Philippians 4:13 KJV
    [13] I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    1 Corinthians 1:21-24 KJV
    [21] For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. [22] For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: [23] But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; [24] But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

  26. 4 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.
    We must give the Lord our God our firstfruits.
    Exodus 23:19a: “The best of the firstfruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of the LORD your God.” Numbers 18:13 — “The first ripe fruits of all that is in their land, which they bring to the Lord, shall be yours. Everyone who is clean in your house may eat

  27. Greater is he living in me – there’s Power and victory … There’s wisdom there’s understanding in Jesus Name

    “When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. But you must be blameless before the Lord your God.
    Deuteronomy 18:9‭, ‬13 NLT

  28. 1 The Levitical priests—indeed, the whole tribe of Levi—are to have no allotment or inheritance with Israel. They shall live on the food offerings presented to the Lord , for that is their inheritance.
    2 They shall have no inheritance among their fellow Israelites; the Lord is their inheritance, as he promised them.
    3 This is the share due the priests from the people who sacrifice a bull or a sheep: the shoulder, the internal organs and the meat from the head.
    4 You are to give them the firstfruits of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the first wool from the shearing of your sheep,
    5 for the Lord your God has chosen them and their descendants out of all your tribes to stand and minister in the Lord ’s name always.

    You should obey God always. And pay your tihes and offerings to the Lord our God. For he has died on the cross for our sins. And has showed us his love and care he has for us.

  29. 13 But you must be blameless before the Lord your God. NLT

    Be holy as He is holy. The KJV says to be perfect with Him. We can strive for perfection and holiness so that we may be a reflection of Him to be able to live and give Jesus.

  30. 9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    God sends us to posses the land to influence it and claim it for His Kingdom not for us to be influenced by it. God is seeking for men and women who will be steadfast and unmovable in Him. Loving Him and Giving Him to others.

  31. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

    When you’re chosen by God, he will give you direction. Don’t let the naysayers deter you from what God has. You have a greater calling on your life and it’s time to push forward.

  32. ““When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there. For example, never sacrifice your son or daughter as a burnt offering. And do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft, or cast spells, or function as mediums or psychics, or call forth the spirits of the dead.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:9-11‬ ‭NLT‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/116/deu.18.9-11.nlt

    It’s easy to get yourself caught up in old things when being around old things. The world is always going to send little things to try an entice you to your old ways. Remember the old ways is what you’ve been delivered from and before you were delivered you were bound. That’s right bondage, lost and doomed…we all remember so don’t forget where got brought you out of. Gods giving is a land with authority but we have to sow his word into it! So let’s go in Jesus name.

  33. ““When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, be very careful not to imitate the detestable customs of the nations living there.(‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

    When you grab hold of the calling the Lord has given you, you must give all of your heart, soul, mind to God. God warns us to be very careful not to follow the abominable lifestyles of nations around the world.

  34. 4 The firstfruit also of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him.

    5 For the Lord thy God hath chosen him out of all thy tribes, to stand to minister in the name of the Lord, him and his sons for ever.

    6 And if a Levite come from any of thy gates out of all Israel, where he sojourned, and come with all the desire of his mind unto the place which the Lord shall choose;

    7 Then he shall minister in the name of the Lord his God, as all his brethren the Levites do, which stand there before the Lord.

  35. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

    God always has a reason why he does things, even though we may not understand it right away. He is kicking out the Canaanite to give over the land to the Israelites. All because they do abominable acts. They are not to do them nor should they allow to happen in the land God is giving them. God warns them that if they do, then they too are subject to be kicked out also. God gives and he can also take away.

  36. The pastor and the prophet

    This chapter covers two of the staples of leadership in the church. One is to the pastor that we should take care of him and his family. It is by the church that the man of God shall eat. He has no inheritance in the world but what he is blessed with from the church should meet all his and his families needs. The prophets words have to remain pure from God if not he is not a prophet at all but just a soothsayer. God has instructed us in both. Give heed to the prophet and remember his words, god will remove him if we cannot trust him. Also take care of the pastor. These simple truths will bless us in all we do.

  37. “But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in My name which I have not commanded him to speak, or which he speaks in the name of other gods—that prophet shall die.’”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:20‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    We should always make sure we are spreading the word of God and not misconstruing it’s message. I thank God for a Pastor and church family that knows the importance of basing everything in scripture and encourages us to know the Word for ourselves. I pray we continue to read His word and know it for ourselves!

  38. 15 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
    16 According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
    17 And the Lord said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.
    18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

    This hit home today because transition can be hard, whatever it might be…a new boss, a new job but for us, my family it was so much more and so unexpected. He’s brought us to a new church, a very new direction. Since all this has happened I had been left with many questions…Where do we go? What’s Your will for us now? How do we do this? But reading today about Moses who promised Israel that after he left God would raise up a new prophet to guide them in the future. This was comforting to me because it reminded that it happened for us, not just to us. God has answered all my questions and provided me with even more than I have asked Him for. His promise to us….He will not leave us alone and lost in confusion, He will raise up a leader when we most need one. I trust God and I thank God because I testify today… that is exactly what God has done for us. I will never forget it. It also reminds me of an old choir song…

    Lead me, Lord, I’ll follow
    Anywhere You open up the door
    Let Your word speak to me
    Show me what I’ve never seen before.

    Thank you Jesus for the leaders and the church You hand picked for us, thank you for leading us and placing us where we need to be.

  39. A prophet will rise up
    Deuteronomy 18:15-19 The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the mist of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken; According to all that thou desiredst of the Lord thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, neither let me see this great fire anymore, that I die not.

    Acts 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, a prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto to you of your brethren, like unto to me him show you here in all the thing whatever he shall say unto you.

    The will of God was to be discovered through a prophet and not through a diviner,magic worker etc. needed to be someone full of compassion and love faithful a powerful intercessor for his people speaking with God face-to-face and reflecting the divine glory by Christ he was to be a mighty prophet in word and deed and a revealer of God’s will and purpose and a leader of the people.

  40. 18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

    19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

    How many times do we not see God speaking to his people through the man of God, but yet
    Still some choose not to obey. The Lord is the one that can change any situation and it is Him that sets up ones and takes down others. As long as the man of God is the Word it would he wise to obey those words and commands.

  41. “But you may wonder, ‘How will we know whether or not a prophecy is from the Lord?’ If the prophet speaks in the Lord’s name but his prediction does not happen or come true, you will know that the Lord did not give that message. That prophet has spoken without my authority and need not be feared.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:21-22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Be careful of who you allow to pour into your life. Not everyone who says they are the man or woman of god are. Make sure you know the word for yourself and know the truth. Be careful that as a Christian in reaching the lost that you are not falsely spreading the word of god.

  42. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
    11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
    12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
    13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.
    14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.

    I know places in other countries that the whole city are bound by these strongholds!!! We dont have to go real far to see that the world needs JESUS LIKE NOW!!!

  43. “Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the Lord your God.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭18:12-13‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    We have been chosen by God because we have chosen to keep ourselves apart from the things of this world. It’s so easy to take on the form or activities going on around us but let’s remember why we choose to keep ourselves apart from everybody else. It’s the sin on this earth that has caused God to drive people out of a blessing.

  44. Verses 13-14 MSG “Be completely loyal to God, your God. These nations that you’re about to run out of the country consort with sorcerers and witches. But not you. God, your God, forbids it.”

    Joshua 23:6-8 MSG says “Now, stay strong and steady. Obediently do everything written in the Book of The Revelation of Moses—don’t miss a detail. Don’t get mixed up with the nations that are still around. Don’t so much as speak the names of their gods or swear by them. And by all means don’t worship or pray to them. Hold tight to God, your God, just as you’ve done up to now.” Be completely loyal and hold tight to God, your God, do not allow others to pull you in a different direction.

  45. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
    11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
    12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

    Many people today desire to know things that are ahead or hear from a loved one who has passed and turn to these types of people- not knowing the spirits they use to divine an answer are not from God. Satan and his fallen angels are ancient and know the past and people are deceived. A true prophet of God hears from God and give us a word when it is needed. We can also hear from the Lord about our current need through his word- which we can receive on our own by reading and searching the Bible while in prayer, asking for his guidance.

  46. We are to trust God. This shows our faith. When we seek after other gods or when we listen to things from other gods that explain something to us, we start to trust in those things instead of God. That is why it is an abomination. Our faith is then placed in something other than God. Jesus is our hope. In Him we have faith!
