Certain components are necessary to advance God's kingdom agenda and not the world's. It requires various spiritual gifts working together to write His love on your hearts to empower obedience, serve the poor, open doors to kingdom ministry supernaturally, use every media and situation to train spiritual children, seek the Lord, give generously and obey His word completely as a defense against worldliness.
The Lord told Moses to cut out two tablets of stone so God could write the Ten Commandments again and have them put in the ark. After Aaron died, the Lord set apart Levi who carried, stood, served and pronounced blessings in His name since the Lord was their inheritance. Moses stayed on the mountain 40 days and nights like first time. Because the Lord listened and was not willing to destroy them, he led the people to enter and possess the land He promised (Deut. 10:1-11). God requires various spiritual gifts working together in ministry so people can advance His kingdom agenda, not the world's.
The Lord required them to fear, walk, love and serve Him with all their heart and soul in order to observe His commandments for their good. Heaven, earth and everything in it belonged to God. He loved and chose Israel above all nations. God instructed them to soften their hearts since the great and awesome God was Lord over all gods. He showed no partiality without bribes, but defended the cause of the fatherless and widow, loved the alien and gave them food and clothing. They were to love aliens as they were aliens in Egypt. God was their praise and did great and awesome wonders their eyes saw. Their forefathers went down to Egypt and God made them numerous as the stars of heaven (Deut. 10:12-22). God writes love on your hearts to empower obedience and serve the poor for your good.
Love God and keep His commandments for strength to possess and live long in the land flowing with milk and honey He cared for. Remember their children who had not seen and experienced His discipline, greatness and miracles in Egypt when the Red Sea parted and God defeated Pharaoh’s army. Their children had not seen other great works God did in the wilderness when the earth opened and swallowed Dathan and Abiram. God brought rain if they loved God and served Him with all your heart and soul. Being deceived by worshiping other gods caused drought and death (Deut. 11:1-17). God opens doors to kingdom ministry supernaturally when you love Him and obey His commands.
They impressed these words on their heart and soul, tied them as symbols on their hands and bound them on their foreheads. Taught and talked of them when they sat in their e house, walked along road, lied down and rose up. Wrote them on the doorposts of their house and gates to multiply their sons' days in the land. By keeping His commands, the Lord drove out nations mightier than them. Every place where they walked would be theirs from the wilderness to Lebanon, from the river Euphrates as far as western sea. Every man would stand and fear when they saw them. God set blessings if they obeyed His commandments and curses if they disobeyed by following other gods. Proclaim blessings on Mt. Gerizim and curses on Mt. Ebal (Deut. 11:18-32). Use every media and situation to equip spiritual children to obey God’s word for success and blessing.
These were the commandments to obey in the land God gave them to possess. Destroy every place where nations served their gods, tore down their altars, smashed sacred pillars, burned Asherim and cut down engraved images of their gods. Seek the Lord and bring all the sacrifices at the place He chose to establish His name for His dwelling. Bring burnt offerings, sacrifices, tithes, special gifts, freewill offerings and the first-born of your herd. They rejoiced in all their undertakings. After crossing the Jordan to live where the Lord gave as an inheritance, He provided rest and safety from their enemies (Deut. 12:1-14). Turn from idols, seek the Lord and give generously to defend against worldliness.
They killed and ate meat within any of their gates according to the Lord's blessing. They ate blood, tithed grain and new wine, firstborn of their herds, freewill offerings or special gifts in the presence of the Lord where He chose. They did not neglect the Levites. They ate anything everywhere except the blood for it was the life. They took holy things they vowed to the place God chose. They were careful to obey these words so it may go well with them and their children in doing what was good and right in the Lord’s sight. When God destroyed nations they were to dispossess to live in their land, He instructed them to not be ensnared by inquiring about their gods saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” Do not worship the Lord their way because in worshiping their gods, they would do bad things God hated. Do not add or take away what God commanded (Deut. 12:15-32). Follow God’s commands solely and completely while rejecting worldliness in fulfilling kingdom ministry.
