God Fights for You
The Lord said to not fear Bashan but remember how He delivered His people and land in Sihon of the Amorites. Joshua killed everyone and took 60 cities in the kingdom of Og in Bashan that were fortified with high walls, gates and bars. Only Og king of Bashan was left of the remnant of the Rephaim. They took possession of this land and gave it to the Reubenites and Gadites from Aroer in the valley of Arnon and half the hill country of Gilead and its cities. The rest of Gilead and all Bashan, kingdom of Og was given to the half-tribe of Manasseh to possess it. All the valiant men crossed over armed with their brothers. The wives and children remained in the cities until the Lord gave rest to their fellow countrymen. They also possessed the land the Lord gave them beyond the Jordan. What the Lord did to these two kings was an example to Joshua of what He would do to all kingdoms where they crossed. They were not to fear because the Lord fought for them (Deut. 3:1-22). God fights for you to obtain your inheritance in Christ.
Fathers and Mentors Encourage Younger Generations
God showed greatness and strength to His servant because no god in heaven or earth could do mighty acts like Him. The Lord was angry and forbid Moses to cross the Jordan River. Moses charged, encouraged and strengthened Joshua to lead the people so they could inherit the land (Deut. 3:23-29). Fathers and mentors encourage younger generations to obtain their inheritance in Christ.
Parents and Mentors Teach God's Word and Practical Knowledge
Teach God’s statutes to equip people do His word, live and possess the land that God gave them. Do not add or take away from His word. Their eyes saw how God destroyed those who followed Baal-peor. Moses taught laws that God commanded so nations would say Israel had wise and understanding people in all areas of life. No other great nation had a god so near whenever they prayed to the Lord God or had righteous judgments like this whole law. Watch closely to not forget things their eyes saw or let them slip from their heart but teach them to their children and grandchildren. God declared His covenant through the Ten Commandments written on two tablets of stone (Deut. 4:1-14). Parents and mentors teach God’s word and practical knowledge to their children enabling them to live with wisdom and understanding in the world.
God Renews Your Mind
Watch carefully to not act corruptly and worship or serve a graven image or created being. The Lord brought them out of the iron furnace from Egypt to be a people for His possession since He is a consuming fire, a jealous God. He will scatter you among the peoples to serve gods, the work of man’s hands. From there, they sought and found the Lord by searching for Him with all their heart and soul. In the latter days they would return to Him and listen to His voice. As a compassionate God, He would not fail and destroy them or allow them to forget His covenant with their fathers (Deut. 4:15-31). God renews your mind from slavery to worldly thinking if you seek Him with all your heart.
Everyone Experiences God's Love
Did anyone hear God speak from a fire and live? God took Israel out of Egypt by trials, signs and wonders, war, mighty hand and great terrors to show that there was no other God besides Him. From heaven He disciplined them and on earth He showed His great fire by hearing His words because He loved and chose their fathers and descendants. He drove out nations greater and mightier than them. God gave their land as an inheritance enabling them to keep His commandments. Then everything went well with them and their children so they could live long on the land (Deut. 4:32-40). Everyone experiences God's love through His covenant relationship so they can experience an abundant life.
God Heals Generational Sin and Worldly Thinking
Moses set apart three cities across Jordan to the east so the manslayer might flee who unintentionally killed his neighbor without malice. These are the testimonies that Moses taught Israel when they came out of Egypt, defeated the Amorite kings and took possession of their land (Deut. 4:41-49). God heals generational sin and worldly thinking so people can be reconciled to one another.
