My bible study on Moses – The book of Deuteronomy

Israel had lived in the desert for 40 years becuase of thier unbelief when the spies returned a bad report (Num 13:32-14:1-45). They had not yet crossed into the promised land. They fought wars against the Amorites and Og, the King of Bashan (Num 21).

Israel went to war against the Midianites and defeated them (Num 31).
Balek the King of the Moabites, hired Baalam to curse Israel, but he blessed them. Baalam led Israel into idolatry and whoredom with the daughters of Moab (Num 25).

The Tribes of Gad, Reuben and half the tribe of Manasseh ask for land on this side of the promised land.

Carrying on from the book of Numbers.

(Deu 1:21 KJV) Behold, the LORD thy God hath set the land before thee: go up and possess it, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath said unto thee; fear not, neither be discouraged.


The sending of spies.

(Deu 1:22 KJV) And ye came near unto me every one of you, and said, We will send men before us, and they shall search us out the land, and bring us word again by what way we must go up, and into what cities we shall come.

(Deu 1:27 KJV) And ye murmured in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.

God did not hate Israel. God did not bring the people of Israel to the border of Canaan to have them destroyed by the Amorites. This was not the will of the LORD God will. It was not the LROD God promise.

It was because of unbelief that some in Israel did not go into the promised land.


(Heb 3:16 KJV) For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

(Heb 3:17 KJV) But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

(Heb 3:18 KJV) And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

(Deu 1:30 KJV) The LORD your God which goeth before you, he shall fight for you, according to all that he did for you in Egypt before your eyes;

Moses reassured them that God would fight their enemies as God had done in Egypt.


(Deu 1:31 KJV) And in the wilderness, where thou hast seen how that the LORD thy God bare thee, as a man doth bear his son, in all the way that ye went, until ye came into this place.

(Deu 1:32 KJV) Yet in this thing ye did not believe the LORD your God,

Israel trusted in their own strength and understanding of what they could see with their eyes and trusted not in God and Gods promise (Unbelief).

(Deu 1:33 KJV) Who went in the way before you, to search you out a place to pitch your tents in, in fire by night, to show you by what way ye should go, and in a cloud by day.

God was with them, a sign- cloud by day and fire by night.

Wroth H7107. qatsaph, kaw-tsaf'; a prim. root; to crack off, i.e. (fig.) burst out in rage:--(be) anger (-ry), displease, fret self, (provoke to) wrath (come), be wroth.

Sware H7650. shaba', shaw-bah'; a prim. root; prop. to be complete, but used only as a denom. from H7651; to seven oneself, i.e. swear (as if by repeating a declaration seven times):--adjure, charge (by an oath, with an oath), feed to the full [by mistake for H7646], take an oath, X straitly, (cause to, make to) swear.

(Deu 1:35 KJV) Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers,

The evil men of this generation were cut off from entering into the promised land because of unbelief.

(Deu 1:36 KJV) Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh; he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed the LORD.

Except Caleb (And Joshua)

(Deu 1:37 KJV) Also the LORD was angry with me for your sakes, saying, Thou also shalt not go in thither.

The judgement of God was also on Moses. He could not enter, because of his disobedience and unbelief. For God had told him to speak unto the rock to give water, not to strike the rock with his Rod to give water(Numbers 20:8-12).

(Deu 1:38 KJV) But Joshua the son of Nun, which standeth before thee, he shall go in thither: encourage him: for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.

(Deu 1:39 KJV) Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it.

Prey H957. baz, baz; from H962; plunder:--booty, prey, spoil (-ed).


(Deu 1:40 KJV) But as for you, turn you, and take your journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.

(Deu 1:41 KJV) Then ye answered and said unto me, We have sinned against the LORD, we will go up and fight, according to all that the LORD our God commanded us. And when ye had girded on every man his weapons of war, ye were ready to go up into the hill.

Some in Israel did not want to wander the desert for 40 years, the punishment God had given Israel for their unbelief. They wanted to disobey God and enter into the promised land straight away.


(Deu 1:42 KJV) And the LORD said unto me, Say unto them, Go not up, neither fight; for I am not among you; lest ye be smitten before your enemies.

Moses warned them not to, for God would not be with them.


(Deu 1:43 KJV) So I spake unto you; and ye would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD, and went presumptuously up into the hill.

Rebelled H 4784. marah, maw-raw'; a prim. root; to be (caus. make) bitter (or unpleasant); (fig.) to rebel (or resist; causat. to provoke):--bitter, change, be disobedient, disobey, grievously, provocation, provoke (-ing), (be) rebel (against, -lious).

(Deu 1:44 KJV) And the Amorites, which dwelt in that mountain, came out against you, and chased you, as bees do, and destroyed you in Seir, even unto Hormah.

They went and fought in their own strength and were defeated, because God was not with them.

(Deu 1:45 KJV) And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you.

The Lord did not hear the cries of Israel, for they had disobeyed.


(Deu 1:46 KJV) So ye abode in Kadesh many days, according unto the days that ye abode there.

JBF Commentary – Deuteronomy 14:1

Deu_14:1, Deu_14:2. God’s people must not disfigure themselves in mourning.

ye shall not cut yourselves ... for the dead — It was a common practice of idolaters, both on ceremonious occasions of their worship (1Ki_18:28), and at funerals (compare Jer_16:6; Jer_41:5), to make ghastly incisions on their faces and other parts of their persons with their finger nails or sharp instruments.

The making a large bare space between the eyebrows was another heathen custom in honor of the dead (see on Lev_19:27, Lev_19:28; see on Lev_21:5). Such indecorous and degrading usages, being extravagant and unnatural expressions of hopeless sorrow (1Th_4:13), were to be carefully avoided by the Israelites, as derogatory to the character, and inconsistent with the position, of those who were the people of God [Deu_14:2].

Gill Commentary – Deuteronomy 14:1

nor make any baldness between your eyes for the dead; by shaving the forepart of their head or their eyebrows, or both, which used to be done in lamentations for the dead; see Jer_16:6 if this could be thought to have any respect to rites and ceremonies used in the worship of dead and lifeless idols, the customs of the Egyptians might be referred to, who are said to shave their heads and their eyebrows in their sacred rites to Isis (t).

Deuteronomy Chapter 16

(Deu 16:1 KJV) Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.

Passover H6453. pecach, peh'-sakh; from H6452; a pretermission, i.e. exemption; used only tech. of the Jewish Passover (the festival or the victim):--passover (offering).

JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 16:1

Deu_16:1-22. The Feast of the Passover.

Observe the month of Abib — or first-fruits. It comprehended the latter part of our March and the beginning of April. Green ears of the barley, which were then full, were offered as first-fruits, on the second day of the passover.

for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee out of Egypt by night — This statement is apparently at variance with the prohibition (Exo_12:22) as well as with the recorded fact that their departure took place in the morning (Exo_13:3; Num_33:3). But it is susceptible of easy reconciliation. Pharaoh’s permission, the first step of emancipation, was extorted during the night, the preparations for departure commenced, the rendezvous at Rameses made, and the march entered on in the morning.


(Deu 16:2 KJV) Thou shalt therefore sacrifice the passover unto the LORD thy God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which the LORD shall choose to place his name there.

(Deu 16:3 KJV) Thou shalt eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shalt thou eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction: for thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that thou mayest remember the day when thou camest forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of thy life.

Leavened. NIV writes bread with yeast in it.
Leavened G2557. chametz, khaw-mates'; from H2556; ferment, (fig.) extortion:--leaven, leavened (bread).


(Deu 16:4 KJV) And there shall be no leavened bread seen with thee in all thy coast seven days; neither shall there any thing of the flesh, which thou sacrificedst the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.

(Deu 16:5 KJV) Thou mayest not sacrifice the passover within any of thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee:

(Deu 16:6 KJV) But at the place which the LORD thy God shall choose to place his name in, there thou shalt sacrifice the passover at even, at the going down of the sun, at the season that thou camest forth out of Egypt.

(Deu 16:7 KJV) And thou shalt roast and eat it in the place which the LORD thy God shall choose: and thou shalt turn in the morning, and go unto thy tents.

(Deu 16:8 KJV) Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the LORD thy God: thou shalt do no work therein.

(Deu 16:9 KJV) Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from such time as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the corn.

(Deu 16:10 KJV) And thou shalt keep the feast of weeks unto the LORD thy God with a tribute of a freewill offering of thine hand, which thou shalt give unto the LORD thy God, according as the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:

Feast H2282. chag, khag; or chag, khawg; from H2287; a festival, or a victim therefor:--(solemn) feast (day), sacrifice, solemnity.

Weeks H7620. shabuwa', shaw-boo'-ah; or shabua', shaw-boo'-ah; also (fem.) shebu'ah, sheb-oo-aw'; prop. pass. part. of H7650 as a denom. of H7651; lit. sevened, i.e. a week (spec. of years):--seven, week.

Freewill H5071. nedabah, ned-aw-baw'; from H5068; prop. (abstr.) spontaneity, or (adj.) spontaneous; also (concr.) a spontaneous or (by infer., in plur.) abundant gift:--free (-will) offering, freely, plentiful, voluntary (-ily, offering), willing (-ly, offering).


JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 16:9-12

Seven weeks shalt thou number — The feast of weeks, or a Week of Weeks: the feast of pentecost (see on Lev_23:10; also see Exo_34:22; Act_2:1). As on the second day of the passover a sheaf of new barley, reaped on purpose, was offered, so on the second day of pentecost a sheaf of new wheat was presented as first-fruits (Exo_23:16; Num_28:26), a freewill, spontaneous tribute of gratitude to God for His temporal bounties. This feast was instituted in memory of the giving of the law, that spiritual food by which man’s soul is nourished (Deu_8:3).


(Deu 16:11 KJV) And thou shalt rejoice before the LORD thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite that is within thy gates, and the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are among you, in the place which the LORD thy God hath chosen to place his name there.

(Deu 16:12 KJV) And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt: and thou shalt observe and do these statutes.

Bondman – Servant.


(Deu 16:13 KJV) Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine:

(Deu 16:14 KJV) And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, and thy manservant, and thy maidservant, and the Levite, the stranger, and the fatherless, and the widow, that are within thy gates.

(Deu 16:15 KJV) Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the LORD thy God in the place which the LORD shall choose: because the LORD thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice.

(Deu 16:16 KJV) Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:

JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 16:13-17

Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days — (See on Exo_23:14; see on Lev_23:34; see on Num_29:12).

Various conjectures have been formed to account for the appointment of this feast at the conclusion of the whole harvest.

Some imagine that it was designed to remind the Israelites of the time when they had no cornfields to reap but were daily supplied with manna; others think that it suited the convenience of the people better than any other period of the year for dwelling in booths; others that it was the time of Moses’ second descent from the mount; while a fourth class are of opinion that this feast was fixed to the time of the year when the Word was made flesh and dwelt - literally, “tabernacled” - among us (Joh_1:14), Christ being actually born at that season.


(Deu 16:17 KJV) Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD thy God which he hath given thee.

(Deu 16:18 KJV) Judges and officers shalt thou make thee in all thy gates, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, throughout thy tribes: and they shall judge the people with just judgment.

(Deu 16:19 KJV) Thou shalt not wrest judgment; thou shalt not respect persons, neither take a gift: for a gift doth blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

Pervert H5557. calaph, saw-laf'; a prim. root; prop. to wrench, i.e. (fig.) to subvert:--overthrow, pervert.

(Deu 16:19 NIV) Do not pervert justice or show partiality. Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and twists the words of the righteous.

(Deu 16:20 KJV) That which is altogether just shalt thou follow, that thou mayest live, and inherit the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

(Deu 16:21 KJV) Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy God, which thou shalt make thee.

Grove H842. 'asherah, ash-ay-raw'; or 'asheyrah, ash-ay-raw'; from H833; happy; Asherah (or Astarte) a Phoenician goddess; also an image of the same:--grove. Comp. H6253.


(Deu 16:22 KJV) Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy God hateth.

A prophecy into the future, after Israel would enter into the promised land. After the time of judges, in the time of Samuel the prophet. Israel would ask God for a king to be set over them as the Pagan nations had.

1 Samuel 10:17-19. Israel asked for a king to be set over them, like the pagan nations and they rejected God.

(1 Sam 10:17 KJV) And Samuel called the people together unto the LORD to Mizpeh;

(1 Sam 10:18 KJV) And said unto the children of Israel, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all kingdoms, and of them that oppressed you:

(1 Sam 10:19 KJV) And ye have this day rejected your God, who himself saved you out of all your adversities and your tribulations; and ye have said unto him, Nay, but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the LORD by your tribes, and by your thousands.

(1 Sam 12:13 KJV) Now therefore behold the king whom ye have chosen, and whom ye have desired! and, behold, the LORD hath set a king over you.

(1 Sam 12:14 KJV) If ye will fear the LORD, and serve him, and obey his voice, and not rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall both ye and also the king that reigneth over you continue following the LORD your God:

(1 Sam 12:15 KJV) But if ye will not obey the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then shall the hand of the LORD be against you, as it was against your fathers.

(1 Sam 12:16 KJV) Now therefore stand and see this great thing, which the LORD will do before your eyes.


(Deu 17:15 KJV) Thou shalt in any wise set him king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: one from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which is not thy brother.

This came to pass as recorded in 1 Samuel Chapter 8


(Deu 17:16 KJV) But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.

(Deu 17:20 KJV) That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left: to the end that he may prolong his days in his kingdom, he, and his children, in the midst of Israel.

:: Gill Commentary - Deuteronomy 18:10

There shall not be found among you anyone that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire,.... To Moloch, which was a sort of lustration by fire, two fires being made, and the child led by a priest between them, and which was an initiation of him into the religion of that deity, and devoting him to it; so Jarchi says, this is the service of Moloch, making piles of fire here and there (on this side and on that), and causing (the children) to pass between them both. Besides this they used to burn them with fire to this deity, perhaps after the performance of this ceremony; see Deu_12:31, or that useth divination: according to Aben Ezra this is a general name, and so Ben Melech, the particulars of which are what follow:

an observer of times, &c. Cicero says (z), there are two sorts of divination, one is of art, the other of nature. What nation or what city is not moved by prediction, either by the entrails of beasts, or of those that interpret strange things and lightnings, or of soothsayers, or astrologers, or of lots (for these are mostly of art); or of dreams or prophecies, for these two are thought to be natural? Again he says (a), the Phrygians, Pisidians, and Cilicians, pay a great respect to the signs of birds--from the beginning of the world it was that certain signs were forerunners of certain things; some in the entrails of beasts, some in birds, others in lightnings, others in marvellous things, others in the stars; some in visions and dreams, and others in the words of frantic persons. So the comedian remarks (b), that if a strange black dog comes into a house, or a snake falls from the tiles through rain, or a hen crows, these, are observed as ominous, by the diviner or soothsayer. Porphyry says (c), that soothsayers divine by the noise of crows and ravens; and it is said (d) the Arabians, from birds as from oracles, divine what shall come to pass; and that they attain to, as they say, by eating the heart and liver of dragons. Jarchi on this place asks, who is the diviner? one that lays hold on his staff, and says, shall I go? or shall I not go? that is, to such a place; and according as it fell, so judgment was made; see Hos_4:12. Now such sort of diviners and divinations are cautioned against, as not to be admitted among the people of Israel, and regarded by them:

or an observer of times: and such things the Egyptians were very inquisitive about, what month or day belonged to the gods, what day any one was born on, what shall befall him, how he will die, and what he shall be, as Herodotus (e) relates; and such are they who are here meant, according to R. Akiba (f) that count times and hours, and say such a time is beautiful (or seasonable) to go out in and trade; but the wise men say, as Jarchi observes, these are they that hold the eyes, cast a mist over people's eyes, that they cannot perceive their juggling tricks. Some think the word has the signification of clouds, and so designs such that observed them and their motions, and made their conclusions according to them; see Lev_19:26,

or an enchanter; according to Jarchi, one that remarks things as ominous; as when a morsel falls out of a man's mouth, a roe stops him in the way, or his staff falls out of his hands: the word has the signification of a serpent in it, and so may signify one that enchants them; see Psa_58:4 or makes observations by them, as portending this and that, and the other, as before observed of the snake falling from the tiles; and Horace (g) speaks of a serpent lying in the way, and frightening horses, as taken notice of by soothsayers:

or a witch; of whom see Exo_22:18.

::Guzik Commentary - Deuteronomy 18:10

1. (Deu_18:9-11) The command to reject all the occultic practices of the Canaanites.
When you come into the land which the LORD your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead.

a. You shall not learn: God knows that many people have a natural curiosity regarding the occult, and that curiosity often leads them to gain knowledge God commands them to leave alone.

b. Anyone who makes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire: This refers to the debased worship of the Canaanite god Molech, to whom children were sacrificed by burning.

c. Or one who practices witchcraft: The word witchcraft here seems to be a broad word, describing a variety of occultic activities. Basically, anything that makes contact with the demonic or dark spiritual world.

i. Thompson on practices witchcraft: “A variety of devices were in use in various lands but all were designed to discern the will of the gods. The same word in Eze_21:21 refers to the practice of whirling arrows in a quiver and deciding the answer to the question by the first arrow thrown out.”

ii. There is a modern revival of witchcraft, or Wicca, and many people claim that “white” witchcraft (as opposed to “black” witchcraft) is a use of spiritual powers for good, as well as being a more feminist, ecology-friendly understanding of god and spirituality. But whether a witch claims to be “white” or “black,” they are still using occultic powers.

iii. Some claim that white, or “right hand path” witches are in the majority today. They worship elements and nature deities, the “Mother Goddess,” Gaia, Ashtarte, Isis, Osiris, and a host of other names for the Goddess.
Characteristically they are active in “Saving the earth” activities, due to the fact that they are pantheists (those who believe the divine life force is in everything: ever see the bumper sticker picturing a globe bearing the legend “Love Your Mother”?).

They deny the existence of Satan, calling him an invention of the Christian Church. They claim to use their powers (and they do have powers) for good: sending healing energies to the sick, affirmations which bring prosperity, and loudly proclaiming their creed, “As it harm none, do as thou wilt.”

It’s ironic how their creed sounds so similar to that of a man who referred to himself as “The Beast, 666” - Satanist Aleister Crowley, who wrote, “Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.”

iv. Of course, there are black, or “left hand path,” witches. These are witches who originally were into white witchcraft, and got hungry for more power.

As their teachers noticed this power lust, they were taken aside and told, “You are now ready to go after the higher power, and there is only one way to achieve this power.

Satan is its source.” Thus comes the white witch’s abrupt surprise: either give up your witchly ambitions, or go for the higher power. The bottom line is that the power behind all kinds of witchcraft is Satan. He is the author of all deception, and all rebellion. To practice or approve of witchcraft is to serve Satan.

v. And this Satanic power kills. Ronald Baker was a 21 year old student at UCLA, and was found stabbed to death at the mouth of a railroad tunnel in the rocky hills above Chatsworth Park. Police first thought the mangled body was of a transient hit by a train; but they then found an occult connection in Baker’s death.

The killing took place on the night of the summer solstice, and the tunnel near the park is known to police as a gathering place for devotees of the occult.

Baker was involved with Wicca (described as “benevolent witchcraft”), often wore a pentagram pendant, and belonged to a UCLA metaphysical group known as Mystic Circle (from a July 1990 news article).

vi. Some who call themselves Christians are buying into this deception.

Take the case of a woman who calls herself Starhawk, who is a practitioner of Wicca - a witch. She first learned about Wicca at an anthropology course at UCLA when she was 17, and she took the name Starhawk in 1975 when it came to her in a dream.

After a master’s degree in psychology, she began teaching at universities. She is a licensed minister of the Covenant of the Goddess and performs marriages and other ceremonies.

She views the earth as a sensitive, living organism which she calls “the Goddess.”

Mary Elizabeth Moore of the Claremont School of Theology said of Starhawk:

“Many Christians, especially women and others who are trying to reclaim creation-centered theology, find her work to be compatible with, or at least adaptable to, Christian teaching.” Starhawk was scheduled to speak at the First Christian Church in Santa Monica on a Friday evening (from a June, 1993 news article).


d. Or a soothsayer: This has reference to astrological-type divination, predicting the future or seeking guidance through the stars, planets, clouds, or weather.

i. Kalland says that the soothsayer: “Is . . . predicting the future by means of physical signs (astrology).” Thompson points out “it seems to refer to divination by reading clouds, or from a root which occurs in Arabic meaning ‘to make unusual noises’, ‘croon’, ‘hum’, in which case it may refer to some kind of incantation.”

ii. Even though Astrology is unscientific - it is based on the supposition that the sun circles the earth, and the positions of the planets and stars have shifted, and are never consistently uniform; therefore, the houses of the Zodiac have shifted - despite all that, thirty-two million Americans believe in Astrology! There are 10,000 full time and 200,000 part time astrologers in America. Three out of four American newspapers carry a horoscope column.

iii. So where does the real “power” of astrology come from? From what most astrologers call “intuition” - but is really psychic knowledge and ability.

Astrology is idolatry, and stems from the demonic. It leads people away from trusting in God, and encourages them to put trust in what God created. And isn’t that Satan’s goal: To replace confidence in God with a dependence on anything else?

iv. Therefore, the Bible clearly forbids us to participate in astrology, which includes reading your horoscope, studying your sign, and computing a natal chart.

It is an occult art, meaning that it involves “knowledge of hidden things”, seeking spiritual knowledge apart from God’s revelation. It is a foundational art, which means it is the building block for all occultists. It is studied by witches and magicians alike. Every Christian should renounce any involvement they have ever had with astrology!


e. Or one who interprets omens: The word comes from the root “to hiss” or “to whisper” and refers to psychics and fortune-tellers who use “aids” other than naturally created things to gain knowledge, tell the future, and cast spells.

i. Today, these people are the tarot card readers, crystal ball seers, tea-leaf readers, palm readers, Ouija board users, and the like. A Christian has no business participating or approving of any of these practices, because either they are money-grubbing frauds (at best!), or worse, they gain their knowledge from satanic, demonic, spiritual sources.

ii. This is why it is dangerous for people - especially kids - to break out the Ouija board, or do a little seance, or little “dark” magic tricks. They are tapping into a source of spiritual power that is real - yet evil, and unspeakably dangerous.

Many, many people have been ruined on the rocks of “innocent” occultic or fortune telling games, and the fact that there is a real power behind those things should make us all the more concerned.

iii. There is a demand for this kind of thing; why else would a homeless man in New York be arrested for stealing skulls from a Brooklyn cemetery and selling them for use in occult ceremonies? A skull can bring as much as $4,000 (from an August, 1991 news article).

iv. It is worth noting that Satan or his demons cannot absolutely know the future; but they can reasonably predict the future based on their superior knowledge of people and circumstances, or predict events that they can have a hand in shaping through their own demonic influence.

f. Or a sorcerer: This has reference to those who use drugs or potions to cast spells, gain spiritual knowledge, or enter into altered states of consciousness. Modern drug abuse easily falls into this category, and the use of drugs has a definite occult connection that the drug taker may not want, but is exposed to nonetheless.

i. Clarke says of sorcerer: “Those who by means of drugs, herbs, perfumes, and so forth, pretended to bring certain celestial influences to their aid.” Thompson adds, “derived from the root . . . ‘to cut up’, may denote one who cuts up herbs and brews them for magical purposes (cf. LXX pharmaka, drug). The term is used in Mic_5:12 for some such material as drugs or herbs used superstitiously to produce magical effects.”

g. Or one who conjures up spells: This is literally, “A charmer of charms” and refers to those who cast spells or charms for good or evil upon others with spiritual powers apart from God.
i. It is a glorious thing to bless another in the name of the LORD; or even to pray to God against the evil of another person. But it is always and forever wrong to use demonic, dark, pagan, or occultic powers to cast spells or charms.

h. Or a medium: The idea is of someone who “stands between” the physical world and the psychic world; they channel knowledge from the psychic world into the physical world.

i. Thompson notes that the medium: “Spoke from within a person (Lev_20:27) with a twittering voice (Isa_29:4). Those who practiced this art called up the departed from the realm of the dead, or rather, professed to do so.”

ii. Those who practice such powers are really among us. In May of 1990, after a man died in the City of Industry, his corpse remained at the home of a spirit medium that had convinced his family that he could revive them man. Friday, LA County coroner’s investigators picked up the decomposing body at the home of the family. The unidentified medium apparently gave the corpse back after being unable to revive the deceased.



Or a spiritist: Literally, this word refers to the “knowing ones” - those who claim unique occultic or psychic knowledge and powers - such as those on the many psychic hotlines that one can pay to call.



Again, a Christian has no business participating or approving of any of these practices, because either they are money-grubbing frauds (at best!), or worse, they gain their knowledge from satanic, demonic, spiritual sources.

j. Or one who calls up the dead: This refers to the practice of necromancy, which is the conjuring up or the contacting of the dead.

i. This refers to “One who investigates, looks into, and seeks information from the dead.” (Kalland) This is much on the increase in our culture; “The proportion of adults who say they have been in touch with the dead has risen from 27% to 42% during the past 11 years. Close to 20 million Americans now report mystical experiences.” (McDowell, 1989)

2. (Deu_18:12-14) Why rejection of all these occultic actions is commanded.

For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.

a. For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD: God did not take these occultic actions lightly then, nor does He now. It is consorting with the power of darkness, and always to be rejected by Christians.

i. Our culture is becoming more and more accepting of these occultic themes and practices, while it is becoming more and more intolerant of Biblical Christianity.

In 1991, a ninth grade Junior High Student in Dickson, Tennessee, sued the school board because his teacher wouldn’t accept a research paper written on the life of Jesus. Students were allowed to write on topics such as the occult, reincarnation and spiritualism, and the teacher originally only said that the topics must be “decent.” The student was given a zero on her paper when the topic was declared unacceptable (from an August, 1991 news report).

ii. “It may be pertinent to comment that in our own day, when spiritualism, astrology, teacup reading and the like are widely practiced, these injunctions given to ancient Israel have a particular relevance. Not only is it impossible to discover the future by such practices, but the practices themselves are forbidden by God to men who call themselves members of the covenant family.” (Thompson)


b. Because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you: God’s judgment was upon the Canaanites because of these occultic practices, and if Israel took up the same occultic practices, they could expect the judgment of God to also.

i. Yes, the Canaanites were sex-worshippers (in their service of the goddess Ashtaroth); and yes, they were money and success worshippers (in their service of the god Baal). But other peoples given over to sex and greed haven’t been judged as severely. What made the Canaanites particularly ripe for judgment was their occultic practices, practices the people of God were strictly forbidden to imitate.


c. You shall be blameless: more than being a general call to a holy walk, this is a solemn warning to keep from any involvement with these detestable practices of the occult. The LORD your God has not appointed such for you!

i. We are to be blameless in regard to such things, even as the Ephesian Christians, who destroyed all things that marked the occult in their lives (Act_19:19-20). This is why it is dangerous for people to seek or approve of the occult, even if they don’t really believe it - even if they just kind of think it is “cool.”

ii. For example, rock singer Ozzy Osbourne says that his satanic image is all an act. “We wrote a couple of songs about black magic, so what? I hammed it up, but I’m not the devil. I don’t put curses on people.” But in the same interview, Osbourne refers to “the him,” who is a “malevolent voice in his head that transmits destructive and self-loathing messages.” Osbourne said of this voice inside him, “He’s there all the time . . . I’ve always had a haunted head.” “Innocent” involvement with the occult didn’t protect him. Satan doesn’t really care if you are a true believer in him or not; just as long as he has you.


3. (Deu_18:15-19) The promise of a true Prophet to come.

The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from your midst, from your brethren. Him you shall hear, according to all you desired of the LORD your God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, “Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, nor let me see this great fire anymore, lest I die.” And the LORD said to me:

“What they have spoken is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him.”

a. The LORD your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me: Moses, by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, promised a prophet to come; a prophet that would first be like me - that is, like Moses.


(Deu 18:11 KJV) Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

:: Wesley Commentary - Deuteronomy 18:11

A charmer - One that charmeth serpents or other cattle. Or, a fortune - teller, that foretelleth the events of men's lives by the conjunctions of the stars. Spirits - Whom they call upon by certain words or rites. A wizard - Heb. a knowing man, who by any forbidden way's undertakes the revelation of secret things. A necromancer - One that calleth up and enquireth of the dead.


:: Gill Commentary - Deuteronomy 18:11

Or a charmer,.... That pretends to cure diseases by charms, or a charmer of serpents; according to Jarchi, one that gathers together serpents and scorpions, and other animals, into one place; with which agree the Targums of Jonathan and Jerusalem,"which bind serpents and scorpions, and all kind of creeping things;''but, according to Aben Ezra, one that says certain words to gather demons together:

or a consulter with familiar spirits; or the inquirer of "Ob", or the bottle, which the Jews interpret of Python, or one that has the spirit of Python; see Act_16:16, a ventriloquist, one that spoke or seemed to speak out of his belly, or from under his armpits; so it is said in the Misnah (h) of Ob, this is Python, one that speaks out of his arm holes; agreeably to which, Jarchi says, this is that sort of witchcraft which is called Python, and he speaks from his arm holes, and brings up the dead thither: of Baal Ob, or the master of the bottle, say some Jewish writers, one way he uses is, he takes the skull of a dead man, the flesh of which is consumed from it, and he hides it and burns incense to it, and mutters words by it, and hears from it, as if from a dead man (k): or a wizard: a knowing one, as the word signifies, such an one as we call a cunning man; See Gill on Lev_19:31.

or a necromancer that inquiries of the dead, or seeks instruction from them, as the Targum of Jerusalem. Aben Ezra describes him as one that goes to burying grounds, and takes the bone of a dead man, and because of his wild imagination there appears to him the likeness of forms; or as Maimonides (l), better still, he is one that fasts and sleeps in graveyards, and utters words; and, according to his imagination, sees future things in dreams.

Deuteronomy Chapter 19


(Deu 19:1 KJV) When the LORD thy God hath cut off the nations, whose land the LORD thy God giveth thee, and
thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses;

(Deu 19:2 KJV) Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

(Deu 19:3 KJV) Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee thither.

Slayer H7523. ratsach, raw-tsakh'; a prim. root; prop. to dash in pieces, i.e. kill (a human being), espec. to murder:--put to death, kill, (man-) slay (-er), murder (-er).


(Deu 19:4 KJV) And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither, that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past;

Ignorantly H1097. beliy, bel-ee'; from H1086; prop. failure, i.e. nothing or destruction; usually (with prep.) without, not yet, because not, as long as, etc.:--corruption, ig[norantly], for lack of, where no . . . is, so that no, none, not, un[awares], without.


(Deu 19:5 KJV) As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the ax to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live:

(Deu 19:6 KJV) Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past.

The cities of refuge for those who caused accidental death. They did not intend to kill that person.


(Deu 19:7 KJV) Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three cities for thee.

(Deu 19:8 KJV) And if the LORD thy God enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers;

(Deu 19:9 KJV) If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love the LORD thy God, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three:

(Deu 19:10 KJV) That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee.

(Deu 19:11 KJV) But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities:

(Deu 19:12 KJV) Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die.

The cities of refuge were not for those who commit murder. Who intentionally kill people.


(Deu 19:13 KJV) Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee.

(Deu 19:14 KJV) Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.

They were not to remove the land mark, for the land mark represented the land that the LORD God had given to them for an inheritance.


(Deu 19:15 KJV) One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.

In relation to sin, there must be more than one witness.


(Deu 19:16 KJV) If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong;

(Deu 19:17 KJV) Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before the LORD, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days;

(Deu 19:18 KJV) And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother;

Inquisition H1875. darash, daw-rash'; a prim. root; prop. to tread or frequent; usually to follow (for pursuit or search); by impl. to seek or ask; spec. to worship:--ask, X at all, care for, X diligently, inquire, make inquisition, [necro-] mancer, question, require, search, seek [for, out], X surely.


(Deu 19:19 KJV) Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.

(Deu 19:20 KJV) And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.

(Deu 19:21 KJV) And thine eye shall not pity; but life shall go for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.

The judgment was to repay the evil the person had done to them the same, so the endured the evil they had done to others.

Deuteronomy Chapter 20


(Deu 20:1 KJV) When thou goest out to battle against thine enemies, and seest horses, and chariots, and a people more than thou, be not afraid of them: for the LORD thy God is with thee, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

Instructions regarding divorce

(Deu 24:1 KJV) When a man hath taken a wife, and married her, and it come to pass that she find no favour in his eyes, because he hath found some uncleanness in her: then let him write her a bill of divorcement, and give it in her hand, and send her out of his house.

Uncleanness H 6172. 'ervah, er-vaw'; from H6168; nudity, lit. (espec. the pudenda) or fig. (disgrace, blemish):--nakedness, shame, unclean (-ness).

(Deu 24:2 KJV) And when she is departed out of his house, she may go and be another man's wife.

(Deu 24:3 KJV) And if the latter husband hate her, and write her a bill of divorcement, and giveth it in her hand, and sendeth her out of his house; or if the latter husband die, which took her to be his wife;

(Deu 24:4 KJV) Her former husband, which sent her away, may not take her again to be his wife, after that she is defiled; for that is abomination before the LORD: and thou shalt not cause the land to sin, which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.


If a wife is divorced from a second husband, the first husband cannot take her back.

(Deu 24:5 KJV) When a man hath taken a new wife, he shall not go out to war, neither shall he be charged with any business: but he shall be free at home one year, and shall cheer up his wife which he hath taken.

(Deu 24:6 KJV) No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge: for he taketh a man's life to pledge.

Upper H7393. rekeb, reh'-keb; from H7392; a vehicle; by impl. a team; by extens. cavalry; by analogy a rider, i.e. the upper millstone:--chariot, (upper) millstone, multitude [from the marg.], wagon.

Millstone H7347. recheh, ray-kheh'; from an unused root mean. to pulverize; a mill-stone:--mill (stone).


JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 24:6

No man shall take the nether or the upper millstone to pledge — The “upper” stone being concave, covers the “nether” like a lid; and it has a small aperture, through which the corn is poured, as well as a handle by which it is turned. The propriety of the law was founded on the custom of grinding corn every morning for daily consumption. If either of the stones, therefore, which composed the handmill was wanting, a person would be deprived of his necessary provision.


(Deu 24:7 KJV) If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.

If a man is caught kidnapping a person to sell them or make them a slave, they shall die.

(Deu 24:8 KJV) Take heed in the plague of leprosy, that thou observe diligently, and do according to all that the priests the Levites shall teach you: as I commanded them, so ye shall observe to do.

Leprosy (See Lev 13:2-14)


(Deu 24:9 KJV) Remember what the LORD thy God did unto Miriam by the way, after that ye were come forth out of Egypt.

Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses. And Miriam was struck with Leprosy for 7 days. (Numbers 12:1-16)


(Deu 24:10 KJV) When thou dost lend thy brother any thing, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge.

(Deu 24:11 KJV) Thou shalt stand abroad, and the man to whom thou dost lend shall bring out the pledge abroad unto thee.

(Deu 24:12 KJV) And if the man be poor, thou shalt not sleep with his pledge:

JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 24:10-13

When thou dost lend thy brother anything, thou shalt not go into his house to fetch his pledge — The course recommended was, in kind and considerate regard, to spare the borrower’s feelings. In the case of a poor man who had pledged his cloak, it was to be restored before night, as the poor in Eastern countries have commonly no other covering for wrapping themselves in when they go to sleep than the garment they have worn during the day.


(Deu 24:13 KJV) In any case thou shalt deliver him the pledge again when the sun goeth down, that he may sleep in his own raiment, and bless thee: and it shall be righteousness unto thee before the LORD thy God.

(Deu 24:14 KJV) Thou shalt not oppress an hired servant that is poor and needy, whether he be of thy brethren, or of thy strangers that are in thy land within thy gates:

The hired servant that is poor and needs was not to be oppressed, either thy brethren or stranger.


(Deu 24:15 KJV) At his day thou shalt give him his hire, neither shall the sun go down upon it; for he is poor, and setteth his heart upon it: lest he cry against thee unto the LORD, and it be sin unto thee.

Clarke Commentary - Deuteronomy 24:15

He is poor, and setteth his heart upon it - How exceedingly natural is this! The poor servant who seldom sees money, yet finds from his master’s affluence that it procures all the conveniences and comforts of life, longs for the time when he shall receive his wages; should his pay be delayed after the time is expired, he may naturally be expected to cry unto God against him who withholds it. See most of these subjects treated at large on Exo_22:21-27 (note).


(Deu 24:16 KJV) The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.

The father is not to be put to death for his sons sin, neither the son to be put to death for the fathers sin.


(Deu 24:17 KJV) Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow's raiment to pledge:

Pervert H5186. natah, naw-taw'; a prim. root; to stretch or spread out; by impl. to bend away (includ. mor. deflection); used in a great variety of application (as follows):-- + afternoon, apply, bow (down, -ing), carry aside, decline, deliver, extend, go down, be gone, incline, intend, lay, let down, offer, outstretched, overthrown, pervert, pitch, prolong, put away, shew, spread (out), stretch (forth, out), take (aside), turn (aside, away), wrest, cause to yield.


(Deu 24:18 KJV) But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

Israel were bondment (servants) in Egypt. But by the mighty hand of God, they were set free.

Bondmen H 5650. 'ebed, eh'-bed; from H5647; a servant:-- X bondage, bondman, [bond-] servant, (man-) servant.


(Deu 24:19 KJV) When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, thou shalt not go again to fetch it: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow: that the LORD thy God may bless thee in all the work of thine hands.

Leave something for the stranger, fatherless, widow. In this way God will bless the work of thy hand.


(Deu 24:20 KJV) When thou beatest thine olive tree, thou shalt not go over the boughs again: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

If there are any olives left over, leave them for the stranger, fatherless and widows.


(Deu 24:21 KJV) When thou gatherest the grapes of thy vineyard, thou shalt not glean it afterward: it shall be for the stranger, for the fatherless, and for the widow.

If there are any grapes left over, leave them for the stranger, fatherless and widows.

(Deu 24:22 KJV) And thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in the land of Egypt: therefore I command thee to do this thing.

Fault H7564. rish' ah, rish-aw'; fem. of H7562; wrong (espec. moral):--fault, wickedly (-ness).

(Deu 25:3 KJV) Forty stripes he may give him, and not exceed: lest, if he should exceed, and beat him above these with many stripes, then thy brother should seem vile unto thee.

Stripes H5221. nakah, naw-kaw'; a prim. root; to strike (lightly or severely, lit. or fig.):-- beat, cast forth, clap, give [wounds], X go forward, X indeed, kill, make [slaughter], murderer, punish, slaughter, slay (-er, -ing), smite (-r, -ing), strike, be stricken, (give) stripes, X surely, wound.

(Deu 25:8 KJV) Then the elders of his city shall call him, and speak unto him: and if he stand to it, and say, I like not to take her;

(Deu 25:9 KJV) Then shall his brother's wife come unto him in the presence of the elders, and loose his shoe from off his foot, and spit in his face, and shall answer and say, So shall it be done unto that man that will not build up his brother's house.

(Deu 25:10 KJV) And his name shall be called in Israel, The house of him that hath his shoe loosed.

JBF Commentary - Deuteronomy 25:5-10

the wife of the dead shall not marry without unto a stranger: her husband’s brother ... shall take her to him to wife — This usage existed before the age of Moses (Gen_38:8). But the Mosaic law rendered the custom obligatory (Mat_22:25) on younger brothers, or the nearest kinsman, to marry the widow (Rth_4:4), by associating the natural desire of perpetuating a brother’s name with the preservation of property in the Hebrew families and tribes.

If the younger brother declined to comply with the law, the widow brought her claim before the authorities of the place at a public assembly (the gate of the city); and he having declared his refusal, she was ordered to loose the thong of his shoe - a sign of degradation - following up that act by spitting on the ground - the strongest expression of ignominy and contempt among Eastern people.

The shoe was kept by the magistrate as an evidence of the transaction, and the parties separated.


(Deu 25:11 KJV) When men strive together one with another, and the wife of the one draweth near for to deliver her husband out of the hand of him that smiteth him, and putteth forth her hand, and taketh him by the secrets:

Secrets H4016. mabush, maw-boosh'; from H954; (plur.) the (male) pudenda:--secrets.


(Deu 25:11 NIV) If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts,

(Deu 25:12 KJV) Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.

(Deu 25:13 KJV) Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.

Divers – NIV writes differing.

(See ... Exodus 17:14)

(Deu 25:18 KJV) How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee, even all that were feeble behind thee, when thou wast faint and weary; and he feared not God.

(Deu 25:18 NIV) When you were weary and worn out, they met you on your journey and cut off all who were lagging behind; they had no fear of God.

(Deu 25:19 KJV) Therefore it shall be, when the LORD thy God hath given thee rest from all thine enemies round about, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it, that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven; thou shalt not forget it.

Gill Commentary – Deut 25:19

that thou shalt blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven: that is, utterly destroy them, so that there should be none left of them any where, to put in mind that there ever were such a people on earth; men, women, children, cattle of all sorts, were to be destroyed, and nothing left that belonged unto them; that it might not be said this beast was Amalek's, as Jarchi, and to the same purpose Aben Ezra; see the order for this renewed, and the accomplishment of it, at least in part (see on 1Sa_15:1-35; see on 1Sa_27:8; see on 1Sa_30:1).

Clarke Commentary - Deuteronomy 26:14

[B]I have not - given aught thereof for the dead - That is, I have not consecrated any of it to an idol which was generally a dead man whom superstition and ignorance had deified. From 1Co_10:27, 1Co_10:28, we learn that it was customary to offer that flesh to idols which was afterwards sold publicly in the shambles; probably the blood was poured out before the idol in imitation of the sacrifices offered to the true God. Perhaps the text here alludes to a similar custom.

Summmary & My Notes.

* God gave Israel the law and commandments and statues before they entered the promised land of Canaan. God wanted to set Israel apart from the nations around them and who dwelt in the promised land.

* God wanted his people to be holy, righteous and an example to the nations around them. God did not want Israel to follow after false Gods (Demons) as the LORD God was the one true living GOD and dwelt amongst them.

* God did not want Israel to follow after the customs of the nations who dwelt in Cannan. For they were carnal, wordly and destestable and an abomination to the LORD God.

* In the same way in the NT, God wants his people (Christians) to be set apart from the World. To not follow after worldly ways. To not follow after the flesh, but rather live a life set apart for God through the Holy Spirit.

* To turn from the living God while God was amongst them was to backslide (to reject God) instead of trusting and putting their faith God and to not reject God. Israel rejected God many times over a period of 900-1000 years after they entered the promised land and judgment came upon them.

* In the same was, Christians today are to live by Gods commandments. Live by his Holy Spirit. We have his word, his commandments and the Holy Spirit. We have his Grace. If we reject the one true living God in our lives and turn to live in the world, turn to other false religions and Gods, reject God through belief in atheism – which is unbelief – a rejection of God the creator and Gods creation – then how can God save us from our own free will?
