Commandments- “Write These Things”

I write everything down because it is how I learn and how I remember things. It is why I take a ton of sermon notes because I want to go back and remember what the preacher said. It is why I write things down when the HS speaks something to my heart because if I do not write it down, I will forget! And I want to remember word for word something the Lord has spoken to me.

Jesus said in the desert: “It is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by ever Word of God shall man live.”

40 years have passed since God handed down His laws on Mt Sinai, and the entire generation that experienced that momentous event has died. Moses is handing off his leadership role to Joshua, but first he needs to remind this new generation both of God’s commands and of their national history and their responsibility before God and to each other.

Deuteronomy means “Second Law”
The book consists of Moses’ farewell message in which he reviews and renews God’s covenant with Israel for the sake of the new generation of Israelites.
They have come to the end of their wilderness wandering and were now ready to enter the land of Canaan.
For the most part this new generation had no personal memory of the Passover, the Red Sea crossing or the giving of the law on Mt Sinai
They needed an inspired recounting of God’s covenant and blessings

Thus Moses purpose for writing was to exhort and instruct them concerning:
1. God’s mighty deeds and promises
2. Their own covenant obligations of faith and obedience
3. Their need to consecrate themselves to fear the Lord, to walk in His ways, and to love and honor Him with all their heart, soul and strength
Remember THIS!

Deut 27
Moses is renewing and ratifying the covenant with this new generation.
Oh Israel, Do not forget the things I have said and done for you!
Do not forget my ways as you enter into a place of blessings and promise! WRITE THESE THINGS!

The Lord has not changed His mind about following His ways! Jesus, the same yesterday, today..

We tell our kids something and we mean it in our house. There is no changing of our minds because of their whining and crying or pleading. If I have told you to do something, I mean it! If I have asked you to clean your room, I mean CLEAN YOUR ROOM! I am not changing my mind about you cleaning your room.

God still means what He says and says what He means- these are called commandments
Praise God that NOW He has written those commandments on our hearts!

Jeremiah 31:33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.

Hebrews 10:16 “This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them,”[a]

This NEW covenant, this stronger, more powerful, higher cost covenant has greater demands than that of Moses- no longer does He say YOU write them in stone and remember what I have told you.


Remember Moses purpose in writing Deuteronomy was three fold:
1. Remember God’s mighty deeds and promises
2. There are covenant obligations of faith and obedience
3. Consecrate yourselves to fear the Lord, to walk in His ways, and to love Him above all things

In Moses law, there was included God’s moral law such as the 10 commandments and civil and social laws for the nation of Israel, not unlike our constitution

Psalm 119:11 Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.

the social and civil laws were specific to the nation of Israel, BUT
He has not done away with murder.
He has not done away with adultery and sexual immorality.
He has not done away with theft.
He has not done away with lying.
To those He has given the HS to, He has written these commandments on our heart so that we know how to live righteously and not sin against HIM- His commandments are for OUR BENEFIT

1. Commandments to Remember
God writes His commandments on our heart to help us to remember what He has done in our lives and because He wants us to draw near to Him with our entire being

This is the first and greatest commandment:
Matthew 22:37-38 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment

Jesus was quoting:
Deuteronomy 6:5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Remember that He loved you, with all His heart, all His mind, all HIs body and all His soul so much that Jesus left all His glory to die for you.
REMEMBER HIs wounds were for you!
REMEMBER HIS scars were for you!
Ex: part of my morning prayer is putting on my helmet of salvation where I remember what Jesus has done for me and I am thankful
REMEMBER!! Then, you can keep His commandment to love HIM and OBEY HIM.

2. Commandments for faith and obedience
God’s commandments included covenant obligations of faith and obedience
John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.

1 John 3:22 And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight

James tells us that faith without works is dead faith- there are still covenant obligations to keep His commandments. It is not about keeping commandments as a ritual or religion, it’s about a loving God who died for us and asks us to love Him and obey Him BECAUSE HE HAS OUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND.

Gabe just got his license. He can drive wherever and whenever he wants, within the parameters his dad and I GIVE HIM. He obeys us, not because he’s afraid of getting in trouble, (there might be a little of that involved) but because he trusts that we know what’s best for him. I ask my kids to obey me because they love and trust that I know what is best for them. As a good parent, I am not trying to “lord” over them.

3. Commandments for Consecration
Consecrate yourselves to fear the Lord and walk in His ways, and love HIM above all things.
The HS consecrates us by writing on our heart the need to fear God, love Him and walk in all His ways – consecrate means to dedicate yourself to God for His divine purpose

Keeping God’s commandments prove that we are dedicated to His purposes! It is NOT about me!

Matthew 22:39-40 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[a] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

Every commandment that God asks us to keep has to do with our relationship to God and our relationship to people- How we love God and how we love people. WE love because we are dedicated to His purposes, to spread the gospel and show forth His glory!

Write these things down on your heart and set it up as a memorial so that you will always remember who God is, what He has done and the commandments He requires of you!

Covenant – Just In Case You Forget

A covenant is a contract or agreement made between two or more parties. It’s an agreement that says, when you do this then I will do this, but if you don’t do this, then this is what will happen. In Deuteronomy 29 we see God fixing to make a covenant with the Israelites., It’s a covenant that says that – If you obey my commandments; you will be my people and I will be you God. But if you don’t then you will be separated from me.

Deuteronomy 29:2-3

Now Moses called all Israel and said to them: “You have seen all that the Lord did before your eyes in the land of Egypt, to Pharaoh and to all his servants and to all his land— the great trials which your eyes have seen, the signs, and those great wonders. 

He is reminding them that they were enslaved, and mistreated for 400 years. They cried out to  Him and  He remembered the  covenant that He had made with their fathers Abraham and He rescued them and reconciled them back to Himself.

I know that you had only heard about the things I did for your fore- fathers and so I sent Moses to do great miracles before your eyes and the eyes of the Egyptians so you could know that I am God.

He is reminding them that He is a faithful God and looking at His track record. His past result are a prove of His future expectations. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. He does not change.

The miracles were for them to know that their God was calling them back to Himself and for them to experience His power and have faith in Him.

He is saying, today I want us to get into an agreement, but before I get into an agreement, let me remind you, of the things that I have done. I don’t want you to honor me only what others say about me. I want you to have a personal experience of what your God has done and you bear witness.

I know that through your hardship (400 years), you may have felt like I have forgotten you. Like I have disowned you.

But all along my love for you never changed and when I heard your cry,  I remembered our covenant and sort to reconcile you to me. Never ones did I leave you alone.

But see I want to make a covenant with you today based on what you have seen so that there can never be any doubt of who I am and what I am capable of. I AM WHO I AM.

He continues to remind them:

Vs. 4-6 Yet the Lord has not given you a heart to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day. And I have led you forty years in the wilderness. Your clothes have not worn out on you, and your sandals have not worn out on your feet.You have not eaten bread, nor have you drunk wine or similar drink, that you may know that I am the Lord your God. 

He is saying to them: You didn’t even have to your change clothes or shoes. You didn’t have to make your own bread or make your own wine. You did not have to work for you basic needs.

I your God sustained your bodies by giving you manna. My power is limitless that I am able to preserved your shoes and clothes – perishable items for 40 years in the desert.

He is saying, I can preserve sandals!! I can preserve clothes… think about it…I like to take the bible literally- …He didn’t say I provided new clothes and sandals. The same sandals and clothes you started out with and you wore when you were born in the desert, they grew with you and the sandals fit as you grew old

Today I ask you, if God can preserve stuff that has no value…Like clothes and shoes? Why are you relying on your own power to fix things?

What is it in your life that needs an encounter with this power of God?

Matthew 6:26-30:  Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?

Don’t miss this, though all this wonderful and amazing thing were happening in their lives. They were so concerned with their past, their focus was on what was going wrong. This made them not to see what God was doing in them right there and then.

What you focus on expand!

…all they needed to do was look at their feet and clothes, this was enough for them to fall on your face and worship God and remember His faithfulness.

What are you looking at Today? Where is your focus?


All of you stand today before the Lord your God: your leaders and your tribes and your elders and your officers, all the men of Israel,11 your little ones and your wives—also the stranger who is in your camp, from the one who cuts your wood to the one who draws your water—12 that you may enter into covenant with the Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God makes with you today, 13 that He may establish you today as a people for Himself, and that He may be God to you, just as He has spoken to you, and just as He has sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

What a merciful God we have, everyone who is here no matter what they do or where they came from gets to be covered by the Covenant. His love is unconditional. He is calling everyone who choose to abide by this covenant to be His people.

God knew the kind of people they were, that just like their fathers, they would go back to their wicked ways… This covenant was not for God’s benefit: It was the only way God would protect them from destruction by giving them a life line- A way to be reconciled to Him.

2 Chronicles 7:14

If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

He is a faithful God and his promises will always hold.

Doesn’t matter how far you are gone, Today if you humble yourself and pray and seek His face and Turn from your old ways, He will hear you from Heaven!

Vs 14    “I make this covenant and this oath, not with you alone, 15 but with him who stands here with us today before the Lord our God, as well as with him who is not here with us today

God is saying that I am making a covenant with the people that are here today. And for the future generation. That He will be faithful to the current generation as they enter the promised land, And also to the generations to come.

Remember, God is putting a way to get us reconciled to Him because He knows that our sinful nature. It was a matter of time before the Israelites fell back to their sinful nature.

It wasn’t long after that the children of Israelites would go back to worshipping false gods and they would cry to Him after they have been oppressed and God would remember the covenant and save them.

When I read about the Israelites and all the things that they experienced. Walking on dry ground in the Red Sea, getting Manna from heaven, never having to hunt, make bread, yet they ate to their fill every day. And they never had to make new clothes or shoes. I am like how dare they forget what God was doing in their midst? What kind of ungrateful people were they? Yet God remained faithful!

He remains faithful today as well. That while we were sinners Christ died for us. God is still offering new mercies everyday…Giving us an opportunity to be reconciled to Him.

Oh how He love us!! Same way He loved the Israelites.

It is this love that allows us to be in His mercy. Love so deep that “God sent His only son to die for us.

Luke 22:20

After super He took another cup of wine and said “This cup is the new covenant between God and His people- an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you”

Today He stands at the door and knocks and reminds you of who He is. I AM WHO I AM! I am the one who created you for a purpose. I am the one that loves you unconditionally. I am the one who created a way to reconcile you back to me by offering my only son to die on the cross for you sins and for the sins of the generation to come.

Colossians 1:20

“and through him God reconciled everything to himself.
He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth
by means of Christ’s blood on the cross.

This new covenant covers you. Just like Moses reminded the people of Israel, we have been reminded over and over what God has done for us. It is all written in the bible and shared in many other means.

So, you have heard and God will hold H is covenant to the end.

Deuteronomy 7:9 

7““The Lord did not set his heart on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other nations, for you were the smallest of all nations! 8 Rather, it was simply that the Lord loves you, and he was keeping the oath he had sworn to your ancestors. That is why the Lord rescued you with such a strong hand from your slavery and from the oppressive hand of Pharaoh, king of Egypt. 9 Understand, therefore, that the Lord your God is indeed God. He is the faithful God who keeps his covenant for a thousand generations and lavishes his unfailing love on those who love him and obey his commands. 10 But he does not hesitate to punish and destroy those who reject him. 11 Therefore, you must obey all these commands, decrees, and regulations I am giving you today.

Culminate- A Homecoming to Remember

Deuteronomy 34:1-12

( 1) And Moses went up from the plains of Moab unto the mountain of Nebo, to the top of Pisgah, that is over against Jericho. And the Lord shewed him all the land of Gilead, unto Dan,
( 2) And all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim, and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto the utmost sea,

( 3) And the south, and the plain of the valley of Jericho, the city of palm trees, unto Zoar.
( 4) And the Lord said unto him, This is the land which I sware unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, saying, I will give it unto thy seed: I have caused thee to see it with thine eyes, but thou shalt not go over thither.
( 5) So Moses the servant of the Lord died there in the land of Moab, according to the word of the Lord.
( 6) And he buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, over against Bethpeor: but no man knoweth of his sepulchre unto this day.
( 7) And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.

( 8) And the children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.
( 9) And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses.
(10) And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face,
(11) In all the signs and the wonders, which the Lord sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land,
(12) And in all that mighty hand, and in all the great terror which Moses shewed in the sight of all Israel.
