Deuteronomy 1:1-8– The Command to Leave Horeb

Giants do fall, video, by Donald Lawrence

The LORD god commanded you to go up the land that you are given, but you rebelled. How did the children of Israel parents rebelled? This is a good question, because by the time we finish this memorial Parsha, the children of the generation after the Exodus of the Egypt do everything that Moses commands Joshua, and fear and obey Joshua all the days of his life. This generation faces giants, and goes into the land that the LORD God is giving them. Of course something happened because the children of Israel are presently in exile and are not occupying all of their land. Nevertheless, the children of Israel did not take the value of word of God, and murmured ludicrous sayings because they were discouraged by the negative report of their brethren. (Numbers 14:1-4). Caleb and Joshua never had a doubt that they could overcome the people perceived to be tall people (Anakims) and the inhabitants in their fortified cities. (Numbers 13:21; Deuteronomy 1:28, 36, 38).

Deuteronomy 1:9-18 – Appointment of Leaders

The Battle is not yours, by Yolanda Adams

Moses comforts the people, by encouraging the people to always be courageous because God will go before you and shall fight for you, and God shall fight for you. Yet the children of Israel did not understand God and what he had already done for them. The children of Israel had no clue of the God of Israel and did not understand that God had delivered them from Egypt, the house of bondage, and at each station in the wilderness (Exodus 14:14, 25). Moses accuses the peoples of not believing in the LORD God. Jesus taught that he did not come to accuse anyone.

The rebellion causes Moses and Aaron, the servants of the Most High God, to be disallowed to enter the Promise land, the land of Canaan. Caleb and Joshua are the only remaining men from their evil generation that were required to enter the land; because Caleb wholly followed the LORD God; and Joshua would require that the children of Israel would enter into the promised land; he would cause the children of Israel to enter in the land of Canaan. (Numbers 14:24-30; 1st Samuel 16:22; Joshua 3:9-13; Joshua 4:14-18; Joshua 10:12-14; Joshua 14:6-15; Deuteronomy 1:36).

Then Moses accuses them of leaving their little ones for prey, that had no knowledge of good and evil; but the children of the rejected generation shall enter into the promise land. God shall give the land to the children of Israel to possess. (Numbers 14:31). On the contrast, the adults were commanded to turn into the wilderness by the way of the Sea to wonder in the wilderness’ deserts for forty years yet the children of Israel lacked for nothing. The rebellious went up unto the hill without the protection of God, and were destroyed by the Amorites because they went against the commandment of the LORD. (Psalm 118:12; Deuteronomy 1:40-46).

Deuteronomy 1: 19-23 – Spies sent out

To conclude, chapter one of the books of Deuteronomy, Moses preaches the journey of the wilderness for the children of Israel that the people would not understand how to inhabit the land that the LORD is giving them. It is very important you don’t try to inhabit the land without the word of the LORD. Each of us are uniquely exiled from our native lands and territories and God we pray will bring us back into our rightful homes. Here the Messiah is prepared to come back into the world many of us will hope to go back to our natural homelands, but we must know who is in power and shall not come back into power because he is the son of perdition. It is very simple to inhabit the land, follow all of Gods’ commandments and all of God’s judgments, which the LORD God commanded by the hand of Moses unto the children of Israel, this is his commandment to a particular people on the day that he told them, you have to get out of this mountain and go home, to a land that I promised to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. (Deuteronomy 1:6). Many people are converting to go to the land of Canaan. Unless you know exactly what you are doing then be careful about returning to the land of your forefathers, this goes straight across the board for any nationality, kindred and tongue of people. I would need to use precaution to return to North Africa, North Carolina, and Scotland… it is just not that simple when the beast seizes your land. (Isaiah 60:15-19).

In 2010, the former occupied lands of the Soviet Union are persecuting anyone who wants to return Israel, who doesn’t worship the best. The Book of Revelation is a companion book for the first chapter in the book of Deuteronomy and describes the beast as a ‘leopard’ which could possibly be the nation of Russia. In recent weeks, Russia has been revealed to have sent spies to America to challenge the Cold War policies; and next may want to stop conversion and immigration into the Holy Land. Many political leaders threaten to challenge their former citizen’s exodus from the land. The water that the prostitute sits is a nation, not limited to Russia who may want to stop you from returning to Israel. The woman is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth. (Revelations 17:15-18).

Moses commanded Joshua to know that his eyes have seen the power of the LORD God: and he will do unto any kingdom that you pass. (Numbers 27:18; Deuteronomy 3:21). Only Joshua is commanded to be courageous and fearless; and let the LORD God that shall fight for you lead the way because this battle is not yours it is the just the beginning of the LORD God’s fight for you.

Deuteronomy 1: 26-43 – Rebellion against the LORD God

Finally, we end the Memorial Parsha with Moses recanting how he begged the LORD God to go into the promise land. The LORD God was angry for the sake of Israel at Moses and Aaron, because of the rebellion, the tempting of God’s wrath and the disobedience. (Moses 20:12; Deuteronomy 3:25-27). After Moses could only look at the promise land from the boundaries, east, west, north and south at mount Pisgah, but could not over the Jordan River onto the side of Jordan. Nevertheless, Joshua comforted Moses by encouraging him and strengthening him, his former teacher that he would cause the children of Israel to inherit the land, promised to their forefathers. Joshua fulfilled the prophecy and caused the children of Israel to inherit the land that Moses shall see, while they abode in the mount at the Baal-peor. (Numbers 25:1-3). See also, Memorial Parsha Pinchas.

The children of Israel were successful in getting their inheritance because the enemy was not a good leader for the right reasons, the enemy was very abominable and did lose his kingdom; and he shall utterly be destroyed. The son of Perdition will go to perdition; this is the ultimate destruction when he comes from out of the abyss. The church has many functions but one of the functions is to keep the son of Perdition from rearing his seven heads, with ten horns. He shall be angry with you and he will not hire you, nor will he serve you and he will make preferential difference against you; whether or not you pass through the land or he takes your land. On the contrast, the son of Perdition has one purpose and this is to be destroyed so pay attention to your leaders, especially the leaders that want to divide Jerusalem and go before the House of David. The church, we have a permanent High Priest and through him you can go to the throne of God. Nevertheless, don’t worry about people being angry because the saints will overcome blaspheme, the saints can repent and possess the land. (1 John 5:5; John 16:33).


Matthew 15:66 –  Jesus said, 6And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free. Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your tradition. (Matthew 15:6, King James Version)

Daniel 7:
 2Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
 3And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
 4The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
 5And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
 6After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
 7After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
 8I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
 9I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.
 10A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
 11I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
 12As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.
 13I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
 14And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
 15I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me.
 16I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things.
 17These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.
 18But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.
 19Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
 20And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
 21I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
 22Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
 23Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
 24And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. (Daniel 7:2-24, King James Version)

Joshua 4:10-13 –  10For the priests which bare the ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until everything was finished that the LORD commanded Joshua to speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over.
 11And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over, that the ark of the LORD passed over, and the priests, in the presence of the people.
 12And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses spake unto them:
 13About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the LORD unto battle, to the plains of Jericho. (Joshua 4:10-13, King James Version)

John 16:20-33
 20Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
 21A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
 22And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
 23And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.
 24Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
 25These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father.
 26At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:
 27For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
 28I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.
 29His disciples said unto him, “Lo, now speakest thou plainly, and speakest no proverb.
 30Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth from God.”
 31Jesus answered them, “Do ye now believe?
 32Behold, the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
 33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” (John 16:20-33, King James Version)
