Devotionary Podcast

Assyria and Babylon will claim the God-ordained judgment of Israel and Judah as something accomplished in their own strength. So, God warns them of the day when the tables will be turned, and they are on the receiving end of God’s wrath and judgment.

God isn’t apologetic or hesitant when He lays out the consequences for Israel’s inevitable rebellion. They will get exactly what they deserve from the hands of a just and righteous God: His anger and judgment.

Devotionary Podcast

Deuteronomy 32:10-18 is intended to remind them of God’s gracious deliverance of them from their captivity in Egypt. But it also paints the very painful picture of their ungrateful response to all He had done for them.

This song would not bring to mind happy memories but it would remind them of their inevitable rebellion against God. They would sing this song, and every time they did they would recount their own unfaithfulness.

Devotionary Podcast

In Deuteronomy 31:23-29, we get a glimpse of Joshua’s less-than-ideal day of commissioning. It wasn’t pretty and it probably wasn’t very enjoyable for Israel’s new leader. But the truth isn’t always pleasant to hear.

Devotionary Podcast

God puts His message in the form of a song that He expects Moses and Joshua to teach to the people of Israel. It’s a dirge, a literal funeral song that tells of the future destruction of Israel for their inevitable unfaithfulness.

Devotionary Podcast

Moses wanted Joshua and the people to understand was that, when all was said and done, it was God who had been leading them all along. And it would be God who brought them safely into Canaan.

In this upcoming session of Devotionary, we’re going to take a slight departure and deal with a particular passage of Scripture, but not an entire book. That’s not normally how we operate, but I think you’ll see what I’ve chosen to give this passage special treatment. I am talking about Matthew, chapters five through seven. You’ll probably recognize it by its more familiar name: The Sermon on the Mount. Of course, what sets this passage apart is not its name, but its author. In it, we have the words of Jesus Himself, as recorded by Matthew. It was Augustine, the bishop of Hippo, who first coined the title, the Sermon on the Mount. That was all the way back in the middle of the first century, and it has stuck with us to this day.  

While less a traditional sermon, and more a collection of teachings shared in a classroom like format, the words found in these three chapters in the gospel of Matthew are nevertheless significant because of what they say and who said them. So, over the next weeks, we are going to dig into this powerful passage and see what we can learn from words that came directly from the lips of Jesus. Hope you enjoy it.
