    From the beginning God directed Moses to go and pocess the land and man has since continue to fight wars, kill nations of people to poscess and become lord of all the land. But that was not God's directive or intension. Everything that God has spoken on satin has managed to place his cloud of deception
  • Iffie
    It is very important to believe and trust in God's word, totally depend on it, disobedient to God is not acceptable.

    in Deuteronomy , it's so beautiful, I am glad that I don't have to be under the Law for Salvation. Apostle Paul explain this very well in the book of Romans. We are under grace by faith through the Lord Jesus Christ. We must know who wrote the books of the Bible and who was it written to, for understanding. Not all scripture is to us, yes we can learn from them. Read Romans through Philemon
  • David
    So far I have read chapter 1 and realize it teaches a lesson of faith in God. The children of Israel could not see God who was bigger that their circumstance and as such most never made it to the promised land.

    Giving the 40 dollars to God every week, i love that. Having Christ is the best thing that can happen to a man
