C
ontinuing with our preparation for our 26th-28th October 2017 Strategic
Perspectives Conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, we are publishing
articles by some of our speakers so you can take advantage of their
unique knowledge and timely insight. Hopefully, this will also
encourage you to attend our final Strategic Perspectives conference with
us to obtain the full benefit from these world-class experts on various
strategic issues.
This months article by William J. Federer highlights a real
problem between the Legislative and Judicial branches in the U.S.
Forewarnings given throughout history of the power of the un-elected.
Thomas Jefferson warned:
“Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so ...
and their power (is) the more dangerous, as they are in office
for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are,
to the elective control.
The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that
to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party,
its members would become DESPOTS.”
Federer is one of many of the great speakers that will be at
the 2017 Strategic Perspectives Conference in Coeur d'Alene,
Idaho. See page 39 for featured speakers and their bios, hope to
see you at the conference. Tickets available from our website:

Jefferson wrote to Abigail Adams, Sept. 11, 1804:


“Nothing in the Constitution has given them (judges) a right
to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide
for them ...
But the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what
laws are constitutional, and what not, not only for themselves in
their own sphere of action, but for the legislature and executive also,
in their spheres, would make the judiciary a DESPOTIC branch.”
A majority of citizens in 30 States voted to have marriage be between
a man and a woman but five un-elected Justices decided to invalidate
their will on June 26, 2015.
Governor Mike Huckabee stated:
“This irrational, unconstitutional rejection of the
expressed will of the people in over 30 states will
prove to be one of the court's most disastrous
decisions.”
Two Justices, Kagan and Ginsburg, were obliged to recuse themselves
as they had participated in homosexual weddings, but they refused,
casting a shadow of illegitimacy over their decision as they displayed
bias and partiality.
Governor Bobby Jindal stated:
“The Supreme Court decision today ...
tramples on States' rights that were once
protected by the 10th Amendment of the
Constitution.”
Governor Jeb Bush stated:
“Guided by my faith, I believe in traditional
marriage. I believe the Supreme Court should
have allowed the States to make this decision.”

Governor Rick Perry stated:


“I’m a firm believer in traditional marriage, and I
also believe the 10th Amendment leaves it to each
State to decide this issue ...
Our founding fathers did not intend for the
judicial branch to legislate from the bench, and
as president, I would appoint strict Constitutional
conservatives who will apply the law as written.”
Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett-Packard and the first woman to
lead one of the top twenty U.S. companies, stated:
“This is only the latest example of an activist court
ignoring its constitutional duty to say what the law
is and not what the law should be ...
I do not agree that the Court can or should
redefine marriage. I believe that responsibility
should have remained with the States and voters
where this conversation has continued in churches,
town halls and living rooms around the country.”
Justice Samuel Alito stated:
“Today’s decision usurps the constitutional right of
the people to decide whether to keep or alter the
traditional understanding of marriage ...
All Americans, whatever their thinking on that
issue, should worry about what the majority's
claim of power portends.”
Former Senator Rick Santorum stated:
“The Court is 1 of 3 coequal branches of
government & they have an imperfect record.
Stakes are too high to cede marriage to un-elected
judges.”

Governor Mike Huckabee stated:


“The Supreme Court isn't the supreme branch ... Five lawyers on the
Supreme Court can no more repeal the laws of nature and nature’s
God on marriage than they can the laws of gravity ...
I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders
acquiesced to an imperial British monarch. We must resist and reject
judicial tyranny, not retreat ...
Under our Constitution,
Under our Constitution, the

the court cannot write
though some cowardly politicians a law, even though some

they are failing their sworn duty flag and accept it...
to reject abuses from the court.”
Governor Scott Walker called for:
“an amendment to the U.S. Constitution
to reaffirm the ability of the States to continue to
define marriage.”
Senator Marco Rubio stated:
“I believe that marriage, as the key to strong family
life, is the most important institution in our society
and should be between one man and one woman.
People who disagree with the traditional definition
of marriage have the right to change their state laws.
That is the right of our people, not the right of the
un-elected judges or justices of the Supreme Court.”
Justice Antonin Scalia stated:
“I write separately to call attention to this Court's threat to American
democracy ... Today's decree says that my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320
million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers

This practice of constitutional revision by an un-


elected committee of nine, always accompanied
(as it is today) by extravagant praise of liberty,
robs the People of the most important liberty
they asserted in the Declaration of Independence
and won in the Revolution of 1776 -
the freedom to govern themselves ...”
Justice Scalia added:
“To allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered
and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel
of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no
taxation without representation: no social transformation without
representation.”
Senator Ted Cruz stated:
“This is not a typical moment in American
history ... The last 24 hours at the United
States Supreme Court were among the darkest
hours of our nation ...”
Senator Cruz added:
“This week, we have twice seen Supreme Court
justices violating their judicial oaths ...
I have already introduced a constitutional amendment to preserve
the authority of elected state legislatures to define marriage as the
union of one man and one woman ... And also legislation stripping
the federal courts of jurisdiction over legal assaults on marriage.”
Franklin Graham stated:
“The court -- since it never defined marriage --
doesn't have the right to redefine it. God gave
us marriage. Period. And God doesn't change
his mind.”

OF THE PEOPLE
“... that government OF THE PEOPLE, by the people, for the
people, shall not perish from the earth.”
-Abraham Lincoln, November 19, 1863

Attempting to usurp the role of solver of social


ills, Democrat-appointed Supreme Court Justice
Roger Taney gave his infamous Dred Scott
decision in 1857, stating that slaves were not
citizens but property.
President Abraham Lincoln disagreed with that decision, stating in his
Inaugural Address, March 4, 1861:
“I do not forget the position assumed by
some that constitutional questions are to be
decided by the Supreme Court ...
The candid citizen must confess that if
the policy of the Government upon vital
questions affecting the whole people is to
be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the
Supreme Court, the instant they are made
... the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having to that
extent practically resigned their Government into the hands of the
eminent tribunal.”
Dr. Ben Carson commented on how judicial review
“has changed from the original intent”:
“Dred Scott is a perfect example ... The Supreme
Court came up with this and Abraham Lincoln
did not agree with it ... It caused a lot of conflict
and eventually led to a Civil War.”

WAR ON JUDEO-CHRISTIAN BELIEFS

definition of marriage will immediately be:

are respected and protected. The government must never force
Christians to violate their religious beliefs.”
Franklin Graham warned: “I believe God could

Court is not the Supreme Being ...”

Governor Huckabee added:


“The only outcome worse than this flawed, failed decision would
be for the President and Congress, two co-equal branches of
government, to surrender in the face of this out-of-control act of
unconstitutional, judicial tyranny.”
Carly Fiorina wrote:
“All our effort should be focused on protecting the religious liberties
and freedom of conscience of those Americans that profoundly
disagree with today's decision.”
Senator Marco Rubio: stated:
“The next president and all in public office must strive to protect
the First Amendment rights of religious institutions and millions
of Americans whose faiths hold a traditional view of marriage. This
is a constitutional duty, not a political opinion.
Our nation was founded on the human right of religious freedom,
and our elected leaders have a duty to protect that right by ensuring
that no one is compelled by law to violate their conscience.”
Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal noted:
“Marriage between a man and a woman was established by God,
and no earthly court can alter that ... This ruling must not be used
as pretext by Washington to erode our right to religious liberty.”
Florida Governor Jeb Bush stated:
“In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing
views should be able to live side by side. It is now crucial that as a
country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience
and also not discriminate.”
As standards of sexual behavior are cut loose from the encumbrances of
traditional values, the logical next step would be to legalize:
• polygamy,
• incest,
14 | VOLUME 27 | ISSUE 8
COVER CONTENTS ORDER
AUGUST 2017 | Personal UPDATE

• group marriages,
• child brides,
• pedophilia,
• bestiality and any
other conceivable
arrangement.
Indeed, arguments to prevent this progression from occurring are purely
arbitrary in their reasoning.
Reiterating values accepted since the beginning of recorded history,
Franklin Graham stated:
“I’m disappointed because the government is recognizing sin...
This court is endorsing sin ... God gave marriage between a man
and a woman and that's what marriage is ...
If pastors are going to be forced to provide marriage services for gay
couples, I'm not going to do it ...”
Franklin Graham concluded:
“I am reminded of something the late Charles Colson wrote:
If we're not willing to fight this, even to the point of breaking the
law, or refusing to recognize the law, then we will lose everything.
Given the choice of obeying God or the government, I believe
Christians will obey God -- even if there is hell to pay.”
In his 1841 Inaugural Address, President William Henry Harrison
warned:
“The great danger to our institutions does ...
appear to me to be ... the accumulation in one
of the departments of that which was assigned
to others. Limited as are the powers which have
been granted, still enough have been granted to
constitute a despotism if concentrated in one
of the departments.”

EXERCISE IN FUTILITY?
Immense effort goes into the legislative process:
• registering voters,
• campaigning for candidates,
• manning polling places,
• voter turn-out,
• swearing into office,
• introducing bills,
• debating bills,
• voting on bills,
• overriding vetoes
Yet this is all an exercise in futility if a few un-elected judges can invalidate
the entire process.
For example:
The Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, was
forced through a Democrat-controlled Congress without public
awareness, as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi admitted in
her now-infamous statement “We have to pass the bill to find out
what’s in it.”
Thirty-four States chose not to set-up exchanges to administer
Obamacare, but the Supreme Court decided in King v. Burwell, June
25, 2015, that the Federal Government could overrule the will of
the States. Justice Scalia wrote in his dissent: “It is bad enough for
a court to cross out ‘by the State’ once. But seven times?”
Other cases where government OF THE PEOPLE perished are:
• Arizona voted English as their official language, but Federal
Judges overruled. (9th Circuit, Prop. 106, March 3, 1997)
• Arkansas passed term limits for politicians, but Federal Judges
overruled. (Sup. Ct., Term Limits v Thornton, May 22, 1995)

• Missouri's legislators passed a ban on partial birth abortion
Sept. 5, 1999. Democrat Governor Mel Carnahan vetoed it.
In a historic session, fifteen thousand citizens knelt in prayer
around the State Capitol as the Legislature overrode his veto.
Days later Federal District Judge Scott O. Wright suspended the
law - and five years later it is still in limbo.
For years a bill to ban partial birth abortion worked its way through the
U.S. Congress, being signed by the President Nov. 5, 2003. The next
day a Federal Judge suspended the law. In fact, thirty-one States passed
bans on partial birth abortion, only to have un-elected Federal Judges
suspend them.

Thomas Jefferson warned Mr. Hammond in 1821:


“The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in ... the
federal judiciary; an irresponsible body ... working like gravity by
night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and
advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction,
until all shall be USURPED FROM THE STATES.”
Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his dissent of Whole Woman's Health
v. Hellerstedt, June 27, 2016:
“As the Court applies whatever standard it
likes to any given case, nothing but empty
words separates our constitutional decisions
from judicial fiat ...
The court just makes stuff up to get what it
wants. The illegitimacy of using 'made-up
tests' to 'displace long-standing national
traditions as the primary determinant of what
the Constitution means' has long been apparent ...
If our recent cases illustrate anything, it is how easily the Court
tinkers with levels of scrutiny to achieve its desired result ...”
Justice Thomas continued:
“Muzzling free speech? No problem. Defining marriage? ...
Made-up rights don’t trump those enumerated in the Constitution.
The Court has simultaneously transformed judicially created rights
like the right to abortion into preferred constitutional rights,
while disfavoring many of the rights actually enumerated in the
Constitution.
But our Constitution renounces the notion that some constitutional
rights are more equal than others. A plaintiff either possesses the
constitutional right he is asserting, or not -- and if not, the judiciary
has no business creating ad hoc exceptions so that others can assert
rights that seem especially important to vindicate.
18 | VOLUME 27 | ISSUE 8
COVER CONTENTS ORDER
AUGUST 2017 | Personal UPDATE

A law either infringes a constitutional right, or not; there is no room


for the judiciary to invent tolerable degrees of encroachment ...
There are too many legal exceptions for made-up rights. Our law
is now so riddled with special exceptions for special rights that our
decisions deliver neither predictability nor the promise of a judiciary
bound by the rule of law ...
The entire Nation has lost something essential ... We have passed the
point where ‘law,’ properly speaking, has any further application.”
Fifty-five men wrote the Constitution, but on September 17, 1787, only
thirty-nine signed it. Why did delegates Edmund Randolph, George
Mason, and Elbridge Gerry refused to sign it? Why did Anti-Federalists
oppose the Constitution? Individuals such as:
Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry. Richard Henry Lee, Robert Yates,
James Monroe, Mercy Otis Warren, George Clinton, Melancton
Smith, Arthur Fenner, James Winthrop, and Luther Martin?
Because they did not think it put enough limits on the power of the
Federal Government.
The promoters of the Constitution convinced the Thirteen States that
if they ratified the Constitution, the first action of Congress would be
to put limits on the new Federal Government.
There were ten limits -- the First Ten Amendments or Bill of Rights.
Unfortunately, over time, the Federal Government usurped power from
the States.

Senator Ted Cruz proposed a “retention election” for Supreme Court


Justices every eight years:
“Every justice, beginning with the second national election after his
or her appointment, will answer to the American people and the
states in a retention election every eight years ...
Those justices deemed unfit for retention by both a majority of the
American people as a whole and by majorities of the electorates in at
least half of the 50 states will be removed from office and disqualified
from future service on the Court ...
This week’s opinions are but the latest in a long line of judicial
assaults on our Constitution and the common-sense values that
have made America great ... Enough is enough ... This must stop.
Liberty is in the balance.”
James Madison sums up the dilemma in Federalist Paper #51:
“In framing a government which is to be
administered by men over men, the great
difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the
government to control the governed; and in the
next place oblige it to control itself.”

President Andrew Jackson stated in his Seventh Annual Message, Dec.


7, 1835:
“All history tells us that a free people should
be watchful of delegated power, and should
never acquiesce in a practice which will
diminish their control over it.”

Supreme Court Judges “ordered” the State Legislature to pass a law


within 180 days recognizing homosexual marriage.
Deciding what laws are needed is the responsibility of the Legislative
Branch. The Judicial Branch is simply to administer the laws according
to the meaning the legislators had when passing the laws.
Thomas Jefferson explained to Supreme Court Justice William Johnson,
June 12, 1823:
“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time
when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested
in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed
out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one
in which it was passed.”
Baron Montesquieu, the most quoted writer
by the Framers of the Constitution, warned of
the dangers of uncontrolled judicial power in
his Spirit of the Laws, 1748:
“Nor is there liberty if the power of judging
is not separated from legislative power and
from executive power.
If it were joined to legislative power, the
power over life and liberty of the citizens
would be arbitrary, for the judge would be the legislator.
If it were joined to executive power, the judge could have the force
of an oppressor. All would be lost if the
same ... body of principal men ... exercised
these three powers.”
Alexis de Tocqueville, author of Democracy in
America, 1835, warned:
“The President, who exercises a limited
power, may err without causing great
mischief in the State. Congress may decide

amiss without destroying the Union, because the electoral body in


which Congress originates may cause it to retract its decision by
changing its members.
But if the Supreme Court is ever composed of imprudent men or
bad citizens, the Union may be plunged into anarchy or civil war.”
States must be vigilant or they will
become irrelevant. The nation’s Flag
may soon be 13 stripes and instead
of 50 stars, one big star, as America's
constitutional republic is transformed
into the United STATE.

COMMENTARY HIGHLIGHT - PART 1

THE BOOK OF
DEUTERONOMY
Dr. Chuck Missler
Founder, Koinonia House

T
he five books of Moses are unquestionably the most venerated of texts
the world over. Jewish sects all give the Torah highest honor, even
if the sects can’t agree on anything else. Christians also hold the
Torah in high regard, and Jesus repeatedly authenticated its five
books by attributing them to Moses. Jesus quotes from the Torah more
than any other portion of Scripture, and that should get our attention.
Every book of the Bible is precious. The entire Bible is supernatural,
breathed by the Spirit of God for you and me. The Torah speaks to all
of us, not just to people of Jewish background and not simply as an
Old Testament background of the New Testament.
These 66 books are an integrated message system, a message penned by 40
different men over thousands of years, yet every detail, every word, every

The five books of Moses are Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and
Deuteronomy. These first five books of the Bible are collectively called
the Torah, or the Law. Sometimes scholars call them by the Greek term,
the Pentateuch.
• Genesis is the book of beginnings.
• Exodus is the birth of the nation.
• Leviticus is the law of the nation.
• Numbers describes the wilderness wanderings.
• Deuteronomy gives Moses’ final messages.
Deuteronomy was given to the Israelites shortly before they entered the
Promised Land under Joshua. It can be viewed as the bridge between the
first four books, written outside the Land, and the next seven, written
inside the Land. Throughout Numbers and Deuteronomy, the children
of Israel are still wandering in the wilderness. After Deuteronomy, Joshua
leads them into the Land. Jesus quotes more from the Torah than from
any other portion of Scripture, but He quotes from Deuteronomy more
than any other part of the Torah. This should underline this particular
book for us.

The Documentary Hypothesis


In the 18th and 19th centuries, scholars began to deny that Moses
actually wrote the Torah. Jean Astruc divided Genesis into two sources
he believed Moses had used,1 but others after Astruc argued that Moses
hadn’t written any of it. It was argued that the Torah came together about
the time of Solomon. These ideas were codified in the Documentary
Hypothesis of K.H. Graf and Julius Wellhausen also called the Graf-
Wellhausen hypothesis. According to this hypothesis, the Torah was just
a collection of writings from four different sets of writers, designated
the Jawhist (J), Elohist (E), Deuteronomist (D) and Priestly (P) sources.
Of course, these scholars had nothing to go on but their own opinions.
They thought writing hadn’t existed during the time of Moses, and they
saw stylistic differences that they thought distinguished one passage from
another. They read into the text the “purpose” each of the J, E, D and
P contributors had for writing their own parts of the text.

Textual scholar and professor Kenneth Kitchen denied the claims of the
Documentary Hypothesis in 1966, writing:
Even the most ardent advocate of the documentary theory must
admit that we have as yet no single scrap of external, objective
evidence for either the existence or the history of J, E, or any other
alleged source-document.”2
The archaeology of the 20th century showed us that writing was, in fact,
common in the centuries before Moses. Solomon began building the
Temple just 480 years after Moses,3 and he moans that a multitude of
books had been written by his time:
And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many
books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

It’s not remarkable that the Torah - written by Moses who spoke to
God face-to-face5 - was carefully copied and handed down generation
after generation. Obviously, Moses did not write about his own death
in Deuteronomy 34. Deuteronomy is a record of the words that Moses
spoke to Israel, which suggests that it was taken down by Joshua as
Moses spoke. It seems that Joshua served as Moses’ scribe at times,6

and it’s likely that he wrote Deuteronomy’s final chapter. He went with
Moses onto the mountain of God and into the Tabernacle, serving God
faithfully, being himself filled with the Spirit.7 The bottom line is that
these five books are the product of Moses, whether or not his servant
Joshua finalized the book by telling us about his death.
The most foolish thing about the Documentary Hypothesis is that it’s
a denial of Jesus Christ. Jesus quotes from each of the books of the
Torah and attributes them to Moses, so if Graf and Wellhausen were
correct, then Jesus was wrong. Take your pick. If you don’t believe in
Jesus Christ, then you’ve got much bigger problems than the authorship
of the books of Moses.

Deuteronomy
These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this
side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red
sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth,
and Dizahab.
Deuteronomy 1:1

One of the Hebrew names for the book of Deuteronomy is Sepher


Devarim, from the first line of the book, which begins, “These are the
words.” The word sepher means “book” and devarim means “words.”
Its Hebrew title is therefore “Book of Words.” Many Hebrew book
titles are based on the first line of the document. However the Greek
translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, The Septuagint, calls this book
Deuteronomion, for “Second Law.” When Jerome wrote the Vulgate,
the Latin translation of the Bible, he kept the Greek name, and that’s
where we get our name for this fifth book of the Torah.
Deuteronomy is often considered a review of the Law found in
Exodus and Leviticus. This is correct in a sense because Moses takes
Deuteronomy to review all that God asked of them and to make a sermon
out of it. More importantly, these are the words of Moses, words that
Moses spoke to the people as his last full instructions before their move
into the Promised Land.

Moses
Before we go any farther, we need to talk about Moses. There’s an
old saying that, “familiarity breeds contempt.” We are in danger of
presumption when we read the Torah, because we are familiar with
Moses, and we might not appreciate his significance. We need to put
Moses in perspective.
He was the founder of Israel’s religion, if I can express it that way. He was
the mediator of the Covenant (which Moses explains in Deuteronomy
5:2-5). He is identified in Deuteronomy 34:10 as Israel’s first prophet.
Few Christians appreciate that the Torah is filled with prophecy.
God called Abraham a prophet in Genesis 20:7, but Israel didn’t yet
exist as a nation. I can, therefore, argue that Moses was the first prophet
to the nation. Through Moses, God set such a high standard that all
subsequent prophets (until Christ of course) lived in the shadow of
Moses. Moses was unquestionably the most venerated of the prophets,
and the New Testament writers quote Moses more than anybody else.
Moses did not merely have visions or dreams, as other prophets.
God spoke to him face to face. This is a big deal. When Miriam and
Aaron challenge Moses, insisting that they are prophets too, God rebukes
them for their arrogance, saying:
And the Lord came down in the pillar of the cloud, and stood in
the door of the tabernacle, and called Aaron and Miriam: and they
both came forth.
And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you,
I the Lord will make myself known unto him in a vision, and will
speak unto him in a dream.
My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house.
With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not
in dark speeches; and the similitude of the Lord shall he behold:
wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?
And the anger of the Lord was kindled against them; and he
departed.

This is not a small thing. Jesus even spoke to His disciples in parables,
but God spoke to Moses directly, as man speaks to his friend.
Exodus 34:34-35 tell us Moses would wear a vail because the presence
of God made his face glow. We should, therefore, take great care to
recognize the words of God through Moses.
The death of Moses is an interesting issue. Jude 1:9 tells us that Michael
the archangel fought with Satan over the body of Moses. Why? Nobody
on earth knows besides the Holy Spirit. Moses and Elijah (who never
died) show up at the Transfiguration in Matthew 17. I suspect that these
are the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11, partly because the Two Witnesses
have abilities that match miracles that were accomplished through Elijah
and Moses.8 It is possible that Moses’ ministry on earth is not finished.

Deuteronomy One
Deuteronomy is essentially a series of sermons. It’s interesting that Moses’
words are addressed to all of Israel. The expression “all Israel” occurs at
least twelve times in the book.9
These be the words which Moses spake unto all Israel on this
side Jordan in the wilderness, in the plain over against the Red
sea, between Paran, and Tophel, and Laban, and Hazeroth,
and Dizahab.

for it. Hundreds of years of archeological research has revealed no trace


of evidence on the Sinai Peninsula. The great discovery of recent years
is Jabal al-Lawz, the mountain I believe is the real Mount Sinai. Just as
Paul said in Galatians 4:25, Mount Sinai is in Arabia, not the so-called
Sinai Peninsula.
There are all kinds of evidence in support of the Jabal al-Lawz site, not
the least of which is that the mountain there has been melted from the
outside in. The top third of the mountain is black. Those who have gone
up there and broken the granite report that it has been heated intensely
on the outside.10 There are also pictographs and altars in that area.
From Jabal al-Lawz the Israelites traveled up through the Wilderness of
Sin (think Sinai), wandered back to Ezion-geber, and then finally headed
back up through Edom, Moab, and Bashan before eventually crossing
over the River Jordan to attack Jericho under Joshua.
Here in Deuteronomy, Moses is going to review their wilderness history.
I want to acquaint you with the general zones the Israelites traveled
through. Notice that Edom is east of the Jordan, well south of the Dead
Sea. Edom is just north of Midian, where Moses spent forty years herding
sheep before God called on him to lead the Exodus. The Israelites ended
up back in that area during their wanderings. North of Edom is Moab,
where Balak the king of Moab tried to have the prophet Balaam curse
Israel, only to find the LORD would only allow Balaam to bless Israel.
North of all that is Bashan, which we associate with the Golan Heights.
There God led the Israelites to kill certain giants before entering the
Promised Land. Remember Og of Bashan, whose iron bedstead was 9
cubits (13.5 feet) long?11 These years of traveling and these early fighting
victories are in their past. Here in Deuteronomy, Moses speaks to the
children of Israel and gives them their final instructions from the LORD
through him.
And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the
first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel,

according unto all that the Lord had given him in commandment
unto them;
Deuteronomy 1:3

The LORD
In the Old Testament, God is addressed by a name spelled with
four letters: ‫ יהוה‬- YHWH. The Jews reverenced the name so greatly,
they stopped speaking it. Instead of reading God’s name out loud,
they substituted the word Adonai, which means “Lord.” For this reason,
its correct pronunciation has been lost. Most Bibles replace those letters
with the traditional term “LORD” (capitalized). Many of us are familiar
with the old German pronunciation “Jehovah” but J and V are sounds not
found in the original Hebrew, and “Yahweh” is closer to being correct.
The Hebrew name for God, YHWH, is of God’s own choosing, and it
is the name that emphasizes God’s personal covenant relationship with
the nation of Israel. It means, “I am” in the sense of perpetual existence,
and it is the name God gave to Moses at the burning bush:
And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children
of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath
sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what
shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt
thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.
Exodus 3:13-14

We find in Jewish communities today, the Jews won’t even spell out
the word “God.” Instead, they’ll write “G-D” out of respect. The Jews
are diligent in their efforts to venerate the name of God. As Christians,
we enjoy God’s revelation of Himself through Jesus Christ. This is one of
the benefits we enjoy. Furthermore, those of us who are in Jesus Christ
know God as our Father.
Jesus told His disciples to address God as “our Father” when He taught
them to pray in Matthew 6,12 and we learn that the Spirit of God leads

12 Matthew 6:7-9

AUGUST 2017 | Personal UPDATE

us in our spirits to call God, “Daddy.”13 The idea of God as our Father is
an infrequent designation in the Old Testament, but it becomes pervasive
in the New Testament because we have that relationship through Christ.
Jesus always calls God “Father” except once, and that’s when He’s hanging
on the cross as punishment for our sins. In Matthew 27:46, He echoes
Psalm 22:1, crying out, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me?” Jesus couldn’t address Him as “Father” there, because He was in
our shoes. Christ Jesus took our place as condemned sinners, and He
allowed us to take His place and become God’s sons and daughters.
The concept of God as our Father was not familiar to the Israelites,
however. To them, He was the I AM, who led them out of Egypt with
great signs and wonders and miracles. He was I AM who provided for
them 40 years in the desert. As Deuteronomy begins, Moses is going to
give the Israelites a sermon, and his authority comes from the fact that
he is speaking to them on behalf of the I AM.

The Setting
After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt
in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth
in Edrei:
Deuteronomy 1:4

The Israelites have had victories in defeating the giant kings who live in
the land west of the Jordan River. Sihon and Og were huge men ruling
over the are now known as the Golan Heights. Bashan was a lush,
well-watered area, and the Amorites dominated it until God brought
the Israelites against these leaders. They are now in a staging area to go
in and take the land that God promised them 40 years earlier.
On this side Jordan, in the land of Moab, began Moses to declare
this law, saying,
Deuteronomy 1:5

He’s going to refer to the first attempt to enter the Promised Land
years earlier, and that’s the primary subject of the rest of this chapter.
The word here “to declare” is ‫ באר‬- ba’ar - which means “to make plain”
13 Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:6

VOLUME 27 | ISSUE 8 |
33
COVER CONTENTS ORDER
Personal UPDATE | AUGUST 2017

or “to expound.” After this five-verse introduction, Moses begins to speak


and expound on the Law. In its most literal sense, the word ba’ar means
“to dig” as in “to dig a well.” When it’s used in the sense “to declare,”
it is generally paired with adverbs like “very clearly.” Moses is not simply
declaring the Law, as though he’s reading it and saying, “Okay this is
what it says.” No, Moses is going to explain the real demands of it.
The town of Beersheba is actually Ba’ar Sheba which means “well of an
oath.” We think of an expositional Bible study that way. We go beyond
what the Bible simply says, and we expound on what it really means.
We dig into it. That’s what Moses is going to do here.
In Galatians 3:24-25, Paul refers to the law as our schoolmaster.
The Law is there to instruct us, and Romans 5-6 shock us by telling us
that one purpose of the Law is not for us to sin no more. If you think I’m
kidding, read those two chapters. The purpose of the Law is actually to
reveal our sin so that we can understand that our position is inescapable.
Romans 3 already warned us this was coming:
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in
his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Romans 3:20

By the Law is the knowledge of sin. The Law is there so we can understand
where we stand. I hope that bothers you a little. On the other hand, it’s
a relief to know that the purpose of the Law is to drive toward God for
forgiveness, and not away from Him because we’ve failed. If you carefully
read Romans 5 and 6, you’ll find there that Law is a very critical topic.
This generation that Moses is talking to is a more faithful generation
than its parents. This is the end of the 40 years in the Wilderness.
The old guard has been wiped out. Those who didn’t have the guts to
cross over into the land flowing with milk and honey back in Numbers
13:25-14:38 are gone. They have had 38 years of distance between
the events of the Exodus and the items on their horizon right now.
It’s the new generation that’s afoot, and Moses has a burden here to
teach them. These are the ones that will carry the purposes of God into
the new land under Joshua.

Of course, most people see the Torah as a list of rules, but that’s not so.
It contains laws, but the Torah is much more than that. It’s direction
for us. It is instruction, and that is the key thing. As we finish this
introduction, let’s look at the first words of Moses’ speech:
The Lord our God spake unto us in Horeb, saying, Ye have dwelt
long enough in this mount:
Turn you, and take your journey, and go to the mount of the
Amorites, and unto all the places nigh thereunto, in the plain, in
the hills, and in the vale, and in the south, and by the sea side, to
the land of the Canaanites, and unto Lebanon, unto the great river,
the river Euphrates.
Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land
which the Lord sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,
to give unto them and to their seed after them.
Deuteronomy 1:6-8

These words set the tone for the entire sermon. Right from the beginning,
we find an absolutely unique, inviolable relationship between the Creator
of the Universe and this peculiar people. God is going to bring the people
of Israel into the Land He swore to their forefathers. It’s an incredible
moment in Israel’s history. They will face challenges, but God will give
them victory after victory. In the book of Deuteronomy the words “the
Lord our God” occurs almost 50 times, and Yahweh is sovereign over
Israel’s history.
The world is still challenging Israel’s right to that Land today.
There are big world powers all meddling in the Middle East. Most of
these are oblivious to the fact that they’re poking a finger in the eye of
God. Britain failed to deliver the land allocated for Israel to the League
of Nations by peeling off 75% and declaring it the state of Jordan.
There’s your Palestinian state. The world is Satan’s domain, and the world
is anti-Semitic. Yet, God has always had purposes for Israel that He will
fulfill. He brought the Israelites into the Land in the days of Joshua,
and He’s got His hand on the Land of Israel today.

Tim Remington
Senior Pastor, The Altar

In 1984, Tim became a Pastor in Loma Linda,


California. Tim and his wife Cindy also ran a coffee
house called “Supreme Bean Coffee House” for years and
served the streets of San Bernardino. It was there they became interested
in street ministry and the people that are typically ignored; those who
have problems with drugs, alcohol, and perversion. In 1985 they began
taking people into their home to help them. That has since grown into
their Mentor Home Ministry and Good Samaritan Rehabilitation. The
street ministry days, from San Bernardino to L.A., taught Tim more
about drugs and alcohol than all the education he ever had. Since that
time he received his degree in counseling. To Tim however, the degree is
much less meaningful than actually leading an addict to Jesus. Now his
life consists of Victim Offender Mediation, Family Mediation, and Drug
and Alcohol Counseling. He is an executive member of the Community
Christian Coalition, and Director of Good Samaritan Rehabilitation
drug and alcohol residential facilities.

Dr. William Welty


Executive Director, The ISV Foundation

William Welty is Executive Director of the ISV


Foundation, producers of the Holy Bible: International
Standard Version. He is a graduate of Trinity Evangelical
Divinity School of Deerfield, Illinois and holds a Ph.D.
from Louisiana Baptist University. Dr. Welty also serves as Research
Analyst in Advanced Communication Technologies and Adjunct
Professor of Middle Eastern Studies on the faculty of Koinonia Institute.
He and Chuck co-authored the book, I, Jesus: an Autobiography. William
has been on the Board of Directors of Koinonia House since 2009.
