Wesley's Notes for Deuteronomy 6:8


6:8 Thou shalt bind them - Thou shalt give all diligence, and use all means to keep them in thy remembrance, as men often bind something upon their hands, or put it before their eyes to prevent forgetfulness of a thing which they much desire to remember.

    To Vicky/Chastity on v,4, 2011; way to go girls!!! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD. I just hope they will see this.

    Deut. 6:4; 4:39; Isa. 42:8; Lk. 17: 16 - And fell down on his face at HIS feet, giving Him thanks (glory). v. 18 - "There are not found that returned to give glory to GOD, save this stranger."
    Isa. says "my glory will I not .....", and yet we see HIS glory being given to - Jesus. Sounds to me like 'Jesus' - is God - manifest in the flesh; The Lord thy God is ONE Lord.

    in His reappearance as Christ, our God adds to these holy words something which was certainly missing before His presence between men, He said "and with your mind" these four corners of our "being" as a living sacrifice making then complete the Love of His Father implemented in Jesus which He transmit to all of us as the main mission to accomplish before dying on the cross, even He units two persons whom He loved the most, His mother and Johannes the evangelist...we should be one with Him to be to live like Him, God bless you all.Amen.

    Moses was determined to love Jehovah God with all his heart, soul, and strength. Likewise we want to use him as an example and make sure we love God with our heart, soul, and strength

    This Chapter has presented the path to peace and prosperity for God's people on earth. It clearly states that God wants His people to live a good life, a life of plenty both materially and spiritually. However he has also made it clear that there are serious consequences if you choose not to obey His commands. Teaching our children to obey His word is also significant. God I love you!
