Deuteronomy Chapter 12 Discussion



 
  • Names of God Meaning - in Reply on Deuteronomy 12:18
    This term, "God Almighty" in verse one is the English translation of the term El Shaddai.Wherever we find the term "God Almighty," it is speaking of the revelation of God using the Hebrew name El Shaddai.

    Who is El Shaddai? My favorite definition and the one we will useEl Shaddai is the God of "more than enough." "Enough" is that which is required to meet our needs. "More than enough" is having extra left over to meet the needs of others. The revelation of El Shaddai brought with it a pronouncement of fruitfulness and prosperity. You are blessed to be a blessing!

    YouTube has that song: El Shaddai

    I understand that God's Name, El Shaddai, would reflect this. That Name essentially means, 'The Almighty One' or 'The Overpowerer'. In His greatness, El Shaddai also reflects God as the All-Sufficient One (the God Who is Enough), enough to sustain & provide for every need of His Universe, including mankind & more so, to His children.

    If you live in the United States, I have found many nice King James Bibles at the Goodwill Stores. Many are under 5 Dollars. Try Salvation Army too.

    If you are outside of the United States, you can call 1-800 and probably get one. If you need one in your language, see if they have those.

    Some people give money to those ministries, so all people in need can get a Bible. What a great way to love your neighbor.

  • Chris - in Reply on Deuteronomy 12:18
    If writing to the U.S. is a problem then try first at the Bible Society Office in the Philippines (there are several: Manila, Cebu City, etc.) & state your need & interest to learn more about God & willingness to accept a second-hand Bible. You can get more information on their website: bible dot org dot ph There is also a Gideons office in your country.

    Write to this address and state that you need a Bible with Old and New Testament, mailed to you. Give an address they can mail a Bible to.

    Tell them a CBM partner gave you this info: Mickey Walker, Hutto, Texas. Ask them to pray for your finances. It might take 2 weeks. Be patient. :)

    April, You are correct. Read JEREMIAH 10:2-4. These verses cannot be any taken any other
    way. The LORD wants to be worshiped in Spirit
  • April on Deuteronomy 12
    Deuteronomy 16:21-Thou shalt NOT plant thee a grove of ANY TREES near unto the altar of the LORD thy GOD,which thou shall make thee. Christmas trees are of a peganism way,when we get the presents we are bowing down to the tree,even if in our hearts We aren't doing this exact thing,if you are to honor father then no tree of celebration is to be near unto him,decorating it,music about it sung.
  • Bruce on Deuteronomy 12
    April: I been to a few of these Churches,some for four years when you mention it they just say who are you holier than now. Some say your probably right, but we're gonna do it anyway,it's fun, the kids love it. I mentioned a Nativity scene would be better. They just looked at me. Some even have a Santa Claus and a bunny suit. The church I grew up in Hung witches in The Church at Halloween! I Left.

    Dr.Ford: I was wondering have you tried to speak to these people and shew onto them whatever is within your heart?I use To go to a Baptist Church,and currently found out Chrismas n Easter are filled with Peganism and other beliefs from other countries all tied into an image that so many people honestly think they are worshiping GOD,yet it is an ABOMINATION unto him,we're doing the exact opposite..
  • Peter A. Okebukola on Deuteronomy 12
    Still more injunctions by God to the Isarelites and a promise of a great future if they obey. It is a simple logic of trust (have faith and do His commands) and obey. Sadly, many shun to obey with its dire consequences. But our God is gracious and mighty to save if we genuinely repent.
  • WE MUST WORSHIP THE LORD IN TRUTH,FOLLOW THE WORD OF GOD IT IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS GOING TO LAST.YOU MONEY ISNT GOING TO LAST,YOUR HEALTH,YOUR JOB,YOUR HOME ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE MATERIAL,BUT THE WORD OF GOD IS ETERNITY!!!!!!!!
  • Angela on Deuteronomy 12
    Dr. Ford what exactly do you perceive to be the Will of Yahweh?!?
    I truly want to understand this scripture. I would sincerely appreciate dialogue! My questions are pubs the idolatry worship, worshipping the way they did their gods, and eating anything is permissible. I need to understand this please and thank you.
  • Quansto on Deuteronomy 12
    Dr Ford . What is the will of God in your eyes?
  • Stephen F. Zielski on Deuteronomy 12
    Rest assure and Trust in the Only Living God
  • Dr.Ford on Deuteronomy 12
    I have spent all of my life in Church, I've been a member of different denominations, and even nondenominational.
    I have yet to find a Church that is focused on the will of God. Most of the Churches are focused on money, celebrating days, Womens day, Brotherhood Sunday, Youth Sunday, Usher Sunday and Pastors Anniversary and no search for the will of God. My heart is broken.
  • Dennis on Deuteronomy 12
    It is in this chapter where the REGULATIVE PRINCIPLE is taught. Only God Himself has the right to say how He is to be worshipped. Much of that which goes on in modern evangelicalism does not meet the criteria, is this biblical? If the church of the New Testament didn 't practice something neither should we. If they did, so should we. Our worship must be "regulated " by Scripture or it doesn 't please God. John 4

    Praying God to help me here in Germany.
  • Godwin Alims on Deuteronomy 12:14
    God has an appointed place of worship for you(every one of us). There, you are to worship, offer your sacrifices and receive instructions.
  • are we doing this are we teaching our children are we making this the better than star wars, the jefferson's, the etc,,,, whats your idol?
    I am looking for a church because the last church wasn't doing this oh we need your money (which i had no problem giving) but don't make waves and always act like nothings wrong lets get home so we can check on the steelers or cowboys or? whats yours gods? are you reading a verse, chapter, memo or? can you catch the false gods in the vary act or are you a part of the scandal? will God come back and find you doing or will you be the door mat at the nearest bar? think about it dwell on it and live it, then when you come to church it wont be a social gathering only no you'll be searching out your neighbor.
