Discuss Deuteronomy 31

Deuteronomy 31 KJV Bible discussions
  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 33
    Psalm 33 begins with a praise admonition for song with "noise" (v. 3); as well as "skillfully" played music with a variety of instruments in the surrounding verses being approved for use. In verses 3-5 we aslso see a "new song" mentioned which is associated with God's judgment and also reflecting His works (v. 4). This is reminiscent of the verses in Revelation 5:9 and 14:3 which reflects the earlier song of Moses starting before the end of Deuteronomy 31 and most of chapter 32. These show judgments that will occur which finally will bring Israel to the right standing with God.

    We see further description in verses 6 through 10 of the creation of earth as well as the fear of the Lord (verse 8) and devices o men coming to naught (v 10); a theme repeated elsewhere in Psalms and other passages as I noted in other commentaries previously.

    Verses 10 through 14 get into the general state of nations; if their trust is in the Lord. This indeed may not be the case now; but at His coming there will be a major change in the attitude of many remaining as seen in Isaiah 19:23 for example.

    Once again verses 16 through 17 show what Solomon should have heeded to in multiplying horses and gold and silver; clearly David's foolish census taught him that lesson!

    Ultimately the promise is in verse 19 to deliver from death for rhose who fear him (v. 18). THe theme of hope and truste end out this Psalm; which are things we should patiently heed in these last days.

    Old Testament law: Deuteronomy 16:16, Exodus 34:23,24, Deuteronomy 31:11, Exodus 23:17, the dates of calendars have changed even the Hebrew / Jewish calendars. Moses through GOD established the beginning of the year to be the Passover, no calendar today honors that. Exodus 12:2, Exodus 12, Numbers 28:16,

    Jesus honored these things, along with His parents (on earth) Luke 2:22,23, Luke 2:41-49, John 4:45, John 5:1, John 10:22,23, even those who opposed Jesus expected Jesus to honor the appointed days : John 11:54-57, John 12, Even facing His own brutal death: Matthew 20:17,18 , Mark 10:32,33,34 do you think HE knew He was the Lamb,: Luke 2:38, Luke 18:31, that was going to be slain for Passover? That's why HE told them, as HE obediently set his face to go? Luke 9:51,

    Read these. Note these verses on the back page of your Bible. It's ok to write in it.

    2 Corinthians 12:10

    Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

    2 Corinthians 13:9

    For we are glad, when we are weak, and ye are strong: and this also we wish, even your perfection.

    Philippians 4:13

    I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

    Deuteronomy 31:6 - Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 2 Timothy 3:16 - All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    Comment: The only way to get strong is to rely on Jesus and the Bible. He is THE WORD OF GOD.

    Mankind's knowledge can only go just so far. FAITH in Jesus can build you up on the inside.

    It only works properly when you ask Him to come and be Your Savior. Read all of John chapter 3. When Jesus is talking about the wind, he is speaking of The indwelling of the Holy Spirit inside of you; in your heart. He teaches you what scripture means.

    There is a link on the red entrance page BECOME A BELIEVER, that will walk you through the steps to Salvation, and Receiving the Holy Spirit. It helps you know what to expect.

    It will grow your Faith. Jesus doesn't fail us. We__fail us. Everyone comes to the Lord the same way. We learn it by feeding on what we learn by reading the Bible, every day.

    I used to read my Bible at lunch and eat the lunch I made. My body was nourished on the food; and my soul and spirit were fed by reading the Bible.

    I promise that you'll get stronger every day. Think about attending church services. One that teaches Bible; not psychology. Come back here for fellowship, often.

    b. Colossians 2:16

    Your reference to including the 7th day weekly Sabbath in with the Mosaic sabbaths (plural) included in ordinances of the Law of Moses does not stand up to close scrutiny.

    The italic of the 'days' in verse 16 emphasizes the plurality of the multiple sabbaths in the law of Moses which is distinct to the Moral 10 commandment law of God.

    Most respectfully your reference to Colossians 2:14-17 is a mish mash including an implied reference to Hebrews chapters 10:1 and a misrepresentation of Colossians chapter 2's application only to the law of Moses..

    The entire paragraph starting at Colossian 2:14 and ending in verse 17 clearly shows that the reference Paul is making is limited to the 'Handwriting of ordinances' which was contrary to us, nailing it to His cross'. The reference confirmed in verse 16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days" is a clear reference to the law of Moses and limits this reference only to the Law of Moses and NOT the Moral 10 Commandment Law of God.

    How do we know this for sure? Because the Law of Moses was:

    Written by Moses using a scribe who wrote on paper using handwriting of The book - Deuteronomy 31:24

    Contains the codes for ordinances & ceremonies (including feast & Holy days etc), sacrificial ceremony, health, civil laws, treatment of animals, treatment of slaves etc - Leviticus 18: 3 & 4, 1 Corinthians 9:9

    Whereas the 10 commandment Moral of God makes no reference to Drinks, meat offerings, ordinances, new moons or an holy day and does not contain multiple sabbaths - but the Law of Moses contains ALL of these.

    The reference you make to Colossians 2 verse 17 again confirms that this cannot refer to the Moral law of God and therefore cannot include the weekly sabbath as being nailed to the cross.

    How so? Because as you say it was 'a shadow' - this shadow of a law concept links this scripture verse 17 with Hebrews 10:1

    This is a fascinating thing. I heard a sermon one time saying the words spoken about "if someone sees the face of GOD they cannot live" he said "they cannot live, the same" Is this the question you're looking deeper into? Genesis 32:20,30, Exodus 33:11, Exodus 34:28-30,35,

    It would be very interesting to do a study on the words. Exodus 3:6, Exodus 33:20,23, Numbers 6:25, Deuteronomy 5:1-5, Deuteronomy 31:17,18, Deuteronomy 32:20, Deuteronomy 34:10, Judges 6:22, 1Kings 13:6, 1Chronicles 16:11, 2Chronicles 7:14, 2Chronicles 30:9, Psalms 13:1, Psalms 17:5, Psalms 22:24, Psalms 105:4, Isaiah 54:8, Isaiah 59:2, Jeremiah 21:10, Ezekiel 20:35,

    Perhaps it's the word "man" that the emphasise is. Romans 8:14, Galatians 4:6, Hebrews 12:7, John 1:12, Philippians 2:15, 1John 3:1,2 , 1John 4:15, How sad it is when a living father says "see his face no more" or turns his face.

    Genesis 3:8-10, interestingly, in this translation it says they heard "the voice of the LORD" they "hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God"

    What's amazing is: Genesis 4:16, it appears even though they were cast out of the garden GOD's presence was still with them.

    Psalms 139, Job 4:15,

    Hello Stephen.

    I hope that a couple of the Scriptures I share here may be of help to those in this quandry of whether to continue with treatment or not. If they are believers, hopefully they will find special grace to bear up & wisdom to know how to proceed. Often, being fully cast upon the Lord for His healing & availing of medical help can go hand-in-hand. I don't think that it's a demonstration of a lack of faith to continue with medical treatment as we trust the Lord for directing the minds & hands of our medical fraternity, and ultimately, it is the Lord Who heals, gives life or takes it away.

    Deuteronomy 31:8; Psalm 34:17-19; Psalm 55:22; Isaiah 40:31; Isaiah 41:10; Matthew 11:28; Luke 1:37; 2 Corinthians 12:9; 1 Peter 5:7.

    Proverbs 1:7

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

    Proverbs 9:10

    The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

    Proverbs 8:13

    The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

    Proverbs 19:23

    The fear of the Lord tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

    Job 28:28

    And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

    Luke 1:50

    And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation.

    Phillipians 2:12-13

    Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to Will and to Do of his good pleasure.

    Deuteronomy 31:6

    Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them (enemies) : for the Lord thy God, he it is that goes with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    Jim In the context I believe concerning sin and its consequences think about this, if adam and eve would not have sinned

    would they have died or gotten old and decayed no. Because no effects from the serpent I.E. satan. That being said all

    sickness disease illness due to sin in the blood and the life in the flesh is in the blood leviticus 17:11. We are born

    Ephesians 2:1 dead in trespasses and sin due to Adam and Eve's transgression or sin. So were all including believers

    in the old testament dealing with the challenge of walking true to Gods Word. When David and your right committing

    adultery and murder are actions worthy of death in the old testament but God loving David sends a prophet to Him

    nathan and Nathan Lovingly shows David His grievous error I mean David was out there spiritually His Self Pride got to

    Him and we all pay for sin because the justice of God demands justice so he lifted his hand of protection and the enemy

    was allowed to steal and kill. Now David via experience knew Gods Love definitely His grace and mercy because David

    had Gods spirit upon him, put sackcloth and ashes on and basically begged to not loose the child. This is not saying

    that all children die because a parent committed a sin personally. Every situation is different and there are things that

    are occurring now that are a result of the sins of the world which we all battle. You can read when the children got into

    serious forms of idolatry that when God walked way the destroyer came wiped out crops land taken over by the pagan

    tribes that constantly God gave the warning to not do and the consequences. In Deuteronomy 31:16 the lord told Moses

    your gonna die and after that the people are going to go whoring after other gods in strange lands and break my covenant. verse 17 and 18 he will hide His face it doesn't say he is going to do the evils! Everything works when God is in it when he's not. It's open season.

    I take it to believe "yea", may not be him rejoicing but even that, has scripture backing Philippians 4:4-9, James 1:2-4, 1 John 4:18,

    even if we walk in/near death we should not fear because GOD promises to be with us (that trust in HIM) Deuteronomy 31:8, Hebrews 13:5-6, John 14:16-21, Psalm 139:1-24, Psalms 37:40,

    The rod; Proverbs 13:24, Job 21:9, Proverbs 29:15, Lamentations 3:1, many times references discipline, correction: Proverbs 22:15, Proverbs 23:14, Proverbs 3:12, Hebrews 12:4-8-11, Staff: Hebrews 11:21, Zechariah 8:4, Exodus 21:19, Numbers 22:27, 2 Samuel 3:29, Judges 6:21

    Hopefully these scriptures help you with the HOLY Spirit to understand deeper. John 14:26, James 1:5

    Hello Onyi,

    If the verse doesn't say we don't know.

    however, what we do know is in Exodus 6 Moses

    told Jehovah God ( psalm 83:18) that he was circumcised in lips.

    Moses felt that his speech was cut off. you can think of someone with a stuttering

    defect. sometimes in old age people voice is choppy or weak. especially some more then others at the age of 100 years old or more.

    What the bible does tells us is that Moses was 120 years

    old when he died. Deuteronomy 31:2,14; Joshua 1:2
  • Alexander BarMikiel on Matthew 27:25
    So question to get people thinking. "My God, My God why have you forsaken me"? Did God actually forsake Jesus? If so, does that make God a liar? Because He says in Deuteronomy 31:6 "...the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." He even repeats it in Hebrews 13:5. So does that mean that God loves us more than Jesus? His perfect son? The son who delighted in him? Well Psalm 147:11 disagrees with that. "the LORD delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love." So why did he forsake him? Is God a liar? Did he change his mind? no and no! "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine..." 2 Tim 3:16 and Hebrews 13:8, "Same yesterday, today, and forever."

    So we have a problem, either the bible is wrong or we're wrong. The common argument to this is that, "God's wrath was so much, because sin was so bad." To which I reply, is God a god of wrath? or of Mercy? "The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love," Psalm 103:8. They say, well it was a long time, but time is nothing to God, "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." 2 Pet 3:8. No, God wasn't so angry. There's something else here. When Jews memorized the bible, they didn't have verses, they memorized the first sentence in a chapter as it's name. And guess where that first sentence appears? Psalm 22, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Read the Psalm, whether Jesus said the whole psalm and it was recorded as just the title or not, doesn't matter, that is what he meant, and his disciples new it. This isn't a psalm of poor me, but of love, mercy and restitution! Jesus's last words were, "They will proclaim His righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!" HE IS PRAISING GOD! Not crying out! He just recited the prophesy of his death, bones out of joint, pierced hands, flogging to show bones! God didn't forsake Jesus, Jesus praised God!
  • Saturday39s National Day of Prayer Repentence on Revelation 13
    This is a starting point for Nat'l Day of Prayer.

    Heavenly Father:

    In Jesus' Holy Name, forgive me for not bringing up my children in the Way, the Truth and the Life. Forgive me for not confessing my sins and for not bearing fruit worthy of repentance. Forgive us as a nation for our failure to properly parent 96% of our children and our children's children. Forgive us for our worldliness, for our pride and for our false idols. We ask that, through our children, you complete your Sovereign Will and command to Go and make disciples of all nations. Help us now to repent, personally and as a nation. We pray this prayer in the Name of Jesus Christ, the Name above all names, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, under which every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord. Amen

    Dear Christian Warriors:

    Sadly, some parents seem to teach this mantra: "Do what I say, not what I do." Unfortunately, this doesn't work. Even our Perfect Father God sent Jesus Christ as an example so that we would have a role model to follow.

    The cure for our failing national morality is for parents to REPENT FIRST and THEN the children will follow.

    Scripture tells us to bring our children early to the House of God ( 1 Samuel 1:24) and to train them in the ways of God ( Deuteronomy 31:12,13; Proverbs 22:6; Ephesians 6:4). Even at a young age children can seek and "speak" God's strength.

    We have now largely robbed children of that Promised experience. Recent statistics by George Barna show that only 4% of "millennials" have a Biblical worldview, 96% are open to the changing morays of a humanistic culture. Sin has almost disappeared as a concept. They don't know what they don't know.

    Join me in repenting in ways that we have failed as parents and as a culture to train our children to walk in God's Way, Truth and Life. Parents are the most influential role models for our children and we must not allow them to be passively taken over by today's media and declining culture.

  • CAROL ANN LARDO on Deuteronomy 31
    Deuteronomy 31:6
  • Grace on Acts 23
    Verse 11 is wonderfully re-assuring to know that God is near us all the time, so when we are working in His vineyard and doing His will. He has promised ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you’. See God’s promise to Moses. ‘Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee’ ( Deuteronomy 31:6). It is therefore important that we are sure we are always working according to God’s will for us, so that we can trust and resign to His care, even at such moments of distress or trial. That faith and communion with God is priceless. Paul is a good example of tenacious faith. That is what we need in order to complete this race triumphantly, and confirms Paul’s statement and urging in Romans 8:35, ‘For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord’. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Verses 38-39. God is more than able to deliver, and continues to workout His purpose.
  • Cheri on Deuteronomy 31
    All of Deuteronomy chapter 31 is wonderful, to know the LORD is always with us. I can't LIE but I ask myself were is GOD/MY LORD. But I have to tell myself [self] YOU CAN NOT GO BY FEELING, FEELING has got me down some wrong ways. IF GOD TELLS US HE IS WITH US, HE IS THE LORD GOD WHO CAN NOT LIE. THANK-YOU LORD. I SAW SOMETHING IN Deuteronomy Chapter 31. Moses turned hundred and twenty (years) in this chapter of Deuteronomy 31. WOW that was something for me, and in this same chapter the LORD said unto Moses Behold thy day approaches that thou much die. And asked Moses therefore write ye this song. That was really something to me. IT WAS MUCH ABOUT OUR GOD WOULD, BUT THE DEUTERONOMY 31 WAS A BIRTHDAY FOR Moses. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
  • Converted by the Second Witness on Revelation 11
    Please read and understand the mystery of the Two Witnesses as the time is short. The two witnesses in the latter-days (our days) are typified by many characters in Old Testament scripture which are summarized in the book of Revelation:

    Malachi 4:5: Behold, I will send you ELIJAH {first latter-day messenger} the prophet before the coming of the GREAT {awesome} and DREADFUL DAY {comet’s impact see Daniel 2: 34; Revelation 8:10, 11; 9: 1} of the LORD:

    In the past type, Elijah was the first witness of his generation until the manifestation of Elisha, the second witness. Elisha asked and received a double portion of Elijah’s spirit in 2 Kings 2:9.

    2 Kings 2:9 …Ask what I {Elijah} shall do for THEE {Elisha}, before I be taken away from thee. And ELISHA {typifying the Second Witness} said, I pray thee, let a DOUBLE PORTION of thy spirit be upon me.

    Since Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s spirit, it reveals how the latter-day second witness fulfills his ministry, according to the scroll of life’s first side, as well as the prophecies that latter-day Elijah should have fulfilled. This is the reason Elisha received Elijah’s mantle, as recorded in 2 Kings 2:13.

    2 Kings 2:13 He {Elisha} took up also the mantle of Elijah that fell from him….

    {Latter-day Elisha) grew out of latter-day Elijah’s church. This parallels the past type, when Solomon was as a tree’s branch that came out of the loins (rod/trunk of a tree) of David to be king in Israel (see Isaiah 11:1).

    Isaiah 11:1: And there SHALL {latter-day prophecy} come forth a ROD {latter-day David} out of the stem of JESSE {typified by the father of old David}, and a BRANCH {latter-day Solomon} shall grow out of HIS {latter-day David’s/rod’s} roots:

    The prophetic statement in Isaiah 11:1 is also confirmed in Revelation 5:5.

    Revelation 5:5: And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the LION {originally referred to latter-day King David but is actually fulfilled by latter-day King Solomon} of the tribe of {spiritual} JUDA {typifying the U.S.A.}, the ROOT {loins} of {latter-day} DAVID, hath prevailed to open the BOOK {scroll of life}, and to loose the seven seals thereof.

    In the past type, God – personifying a scroll’s record of that generation – sent the Assyrian (see Isaiah 10:5, 6) against the hypocritical nation of Israel’s ten tribes. After the Assyrian had taken the ten tribes of Israel’s northern kingdom into captivity, the Egyptians then overthrew the Assyrian empire. This spared the kingdom of Judah and Jerusalem in the south of Palestine from the same fate that befell the ten tribes, who were deported from the north of Palestine. However, God warned the kingdom of Judah in Palestine not to rejoice over the fall of Assyria, because the Babylonian will be coming to rule over Palestine, as illustrated in Isaiah 14:29.

    Isaiah 14:29 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of HIM {the Assyrian who typifies latter-day Elijah} that smote THEE {land of old Israel/Palestine, which typifies latter-day Christendom/latter-day spiritual Israel} is BROKEN {by old Egypt, which typifies the latter-day fifth reigning kingdom}: for out of the SERPENT’S ROOT {the Assyrian who typifies latter-day David} shall come forth a COCKATRICE {representing Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon, which typifies latter-day Solomon’s/Chosen Vessel’s ministry}, and his FRUIT {representing Nebuchadnezzar’s armies, which typify the believers of this new doctrine and then the great multitude} shall be a FIERY FLYING SERPENT {personifying coals of fire that follow the comet/cockatrice}.

    The city of Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon did not exist until the Assyrians built it, as stated in Isaiah 23:13.

    Isaiah 23:13: Behold the land of the CHALDEANS {Babylonians}; this people was not, till the ASSYRIAN {serpent’s root} founded IT {cockatrice/old Babylon} for them that dwell in the wilderness: THEY {Assyrians} set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; and he {Assyrian} brought it to ruin (before the people who became the Babylonians rebuilt it).

    As the Babylonian came out of the Assyrian and Solomon came out of David, so the Chosen Vessel (latter-day Solomon) came out of latter-day David’s church in Waco, Texas. This is likened to Yahshua being baptized in John the Baptist’s ministry. The Chosen Vessel is the branch that came forth from the rod (Latter-day David). Just as Solomon built the temple instead of David, so the branch (second witness/latter-day Zerubbabel/Solomon) will build the spiritual temple before the comet hits the land (see Zechariah 6:12).

    Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Behold the MAN {latter-day Solomon} whose name is The BRANCH {that bears fruit, see Ezekiel 7:10}; and HE {Chosen Vessel} shall GROW UP {from the rod/latter-day David} out of his place, and he shall build the temple {as Moses, Solomon, and Darius built the temple} of the LORD {Hayah Havah}:

    Latter-day Elijah gathered followers, a number of whom now believe latter-day Elisha’s doctrine. Also, before latter-day Elijah was killed on April 19, 1993, God caused the scenario to take place at Mount Carmel in Waco, Texas, so latter-day
    Elisha’s ministry would be easier to promote. Accordingly, the ministry of latter-day Elijah has prepared the way for latter-day Elisha, as prophesied in Isaiah 40:3.

    Isaiah 40:3 The voice of HIM {latter-day Elijah} that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare YE {referring to the tribes of Christendom} the way of the LORD {Hayah Havah manifesting as the Chosen Vessel}, make straight in the desert a highway for our God (manifesting as latter-day Moses).

    The first messenger (Elijah-type) in our day is also typified by the prophecy that seemed to refer to the new king, Eliakim, in Isaiah 22:22.

    Isaiah 22:22 And the KEY {to the kingdom} of the house of David will I lay upon HIS {Eliakim’s/Cyrus’} shoulder; so he shall open, and none shall shut; and he shall shut, and none shall open.

    This prophecy concerning Eliakim is referring to the same Cyrus who is mentioned in Isaiah 44:28. Since King Cyrus’ decree failed to rebuild Jerusalem and her temple, it reveals how the first latter-day messenger (Elijah-type) fails to construct the latter-day spiritual temple. Therefore, as Moses, Solomon, and Darius built the temple of God instead of Aaron, David, and Cyrus, it reveals how the second latter-day messenger (Elisha-type) receives the key of knowledge to fulfill all unfulfilled prophecies (see Revelation 3:7).

    Revelation 3:7 …These things saith he that is HOLY {scroll of life’s record}, he that is TRUE {scroll of life’s record pertaining to the Chosen Vessel/second messenger}, HE {Chosen Vessel} THAT HATH THE KEY {to unlock all mysteries in God’s word, see Revelation 10:7} OF {latter-day} DAVID {latter-day Eliakim/Elijah}, HE {latter-day Solomon} that OPENETH {the scroll of life with the key of knowledge, see Revelation 5:5, 6}, AND NO MAN SHUTTETH {with their wrongly-fitting key of error}; AND SHUTTETH {when latter-day Solomon does not reveal/open God’s mysteries with his key of knowledge}, AND NO MAN OPENETH {with his or her key that does not fit the figurative lock of written prophecy};

    According to the song (testimony) of old Moses, he brought out the Israelites from Egypt, constructed the temple, fed the people, gave them laws, and led them to the Promised Land, (see Deuteronomy 32:2).

    Deuteronomy 32:2 My {Moses’} doctrine shall drop as the rain {to ripen the spiritual barley, wheat, and fruits}, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:”

    Today, the new doctrine of latter-day Moses is sung from the scroll of life’s first side. The people who accept latter-day Moses’ song (doctrine) are also able to sing the song pertaining to latter-day Moses, as prophesied in Revelation 15:3.

    Revelation 15:3 And THEY {first and second latter-day groups of redeemed} sing the SONG {new doctrine} of MOSES {latter-day Moses, see Deuteronomy 31:30} the servant of GOD {seventh angel}, and the song of the LAMB {sunlight-ministry of latter-day Yahshua/Lamb who manifested according to the prophecy in Acts 1:11}, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, THOU {latter-day Chosen Vessel/Elisha/Yahshua} King of {the three latter-day groups of} saints.
