Deuteronomy 2:34
At that time we took all his towns and completely destroyed them—men, women and children. We left no survivors.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
We see through this chapter, that as the Israelites were obedient to the commands of the Lord, that He gave them victory over the territories He had chosen for them. They passed through the territories He had not granted to them to inhabit, and when Sihon, king of Heshbon resisted, the Lord gave His people the ability to wipe them out completely. This shows us that obedience to the Lord is of utmost importance, and draws His favor.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
You nailed it with your insight to this verse Lloyd, when you choose to Obey The Lord He will bless you. He always provides favor to His listeners and followers. You have big list of candidates running I see. Faithfully in Prayer for whatever happens tomorrow, brings us another day closer for the return of Jesus.

Deuteronomy 1:45
You came back and wept before the Lord, but he paid no attention to your weeping and turned a deaf ear to you.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
They had been disobedient to the Lord when He commanded them not to go against their enemies because they had not been obedient to His original commands. They went out in their own boldness anyhow, and were soundly defeated. Now they were weeping and the Lord payed no attention to them. If we go against the commands of the Lord, we can expect disaster but if we pay attention to His commands we will be blessed. 1Sam 15:22  And Samuel said, Does Jehovah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of Jehovah? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice! To listen is better than the fat of rams!
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Lloyd, all through out scripture disobedience, and not listening to the commands of God leads to judgement. So as you backed this up with scripture, it is better to listen and to obey the commands of God, and He will listen to you. 54 degrees now- and in the 60 for the Lords Day. Blessings as we put on the Armor of God Daily.

Numbers 36:8
Every daughter who inherits land in any Israelite tribe must marry someone in her father's tribal clan, so that every Israelite will possess the inheritance of their ancestors.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Certain lands had been allotted to each tribe of the Israelites but if there was no male to inherit the land as it was passed down, hen it was to be passed to the daughter. Then if the daughter married a member of one of the other tribes, then the inheritance would be passed to a different tribe. Therefore, the daughters who inherited land, were forbidden to marry outside their own tribe, so that their land would remain within the tribe to which the Lord had given it.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen and Amen Lloyd we both picked different verses, with different results. Marriage with in there family/tribe, and marriage out side the family/tribe, for the inheritance of the land. Continue to be Blest on the Lords Day, for the Lords Day is Everyday.

Numbers 35:18
Or if anyone is holding a wooden object and strikes someone a fatal blow with it, that person is a murderer; the murderer is to be put to death.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
It is quite obvious through out this entire chapter, that murder carries the death penalty for the perpetrator of an intentional death. Seldom is the death penalty used today but I believe that if someone who plans to kill another individual, realized the penalty would be their own death, it could very well cause them to stop and reconsider their plan to murder another individual. Mat 5:21  You have heard that it was said to the ancients, "You shall not kill" --and, "Whoever shall kill shall be liable to the judgment."
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Great insight to this verse Lloyd, murder does pay a great penalty for intentional death. And backed up with scripture. But I also thought as we read in this chapter the avenger, who more or less took the law into his own hands and wasn't punished. Of course today the avenger could be prosecuted. Lifting up Canada in your up coming Elections. Blessing my brother.

Numbers 34:29
These are the men the Lord commanded to assign the inheritance to the Israelites in the land of Canaan.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Anotherdifficult chapter to chose a verse to comment on. We see that the Lord always put certain people in command, so that there was always a leader of each tribe who would be accountable to the Lord. Supposedly these men were honorable men who were no doubt chosen by Moses, who was the leader of leaders.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
This was a difficult chapter, but God has chosen the best. And started with Moses to Joshua and Caleb. Middle of the week Blessing my brother in Christ. Had to replace my furnace today.

Numbers 33:56
And then I will do to you what I plan to do to them.' "
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
This was a rather severe warning the Lord gave to the Israelites through Moses, and as we know, the Lord has always stood by His word. Lord, draw people of the world to the truth of Your word today, that our turbulent world would receive Your gift of salvation. Psa 67:2  So that Your way may be known on earth, Your salvation among all nations.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Lloyd you nailed this with your scripture verse, all the nations(today) can heed the warning for disobeying Gods commands and His word. Be Blest for Gods plan is on the move.

Numbers 32:15
If you turn away from following him, he will again leave all this people in the wilderness, and you will be the cause of their destruction."

Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Moses is warning the people, that if they do not follow the instructions of the Lord, given them by Moses, that they would end up as did those who came out of Egypt. They were disobedient to the Lord, wandered in the wilderness for forty years until those over twenty had died, that it would happen again. It is shown that it is not wise to disobey the commands of the Lord, or there will be a consequence that will certainly not be well for them, and they will be destroyed. 1Pet 2:13-14  Then be in obedience to every ordinance of men, because of the Lord, whether to a king as supreme, (14)  or to governors as sent by Him for vengeance on evildoers, but for praise on well-doers. 
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
You nailed this verse pretty well Lloyd, Moses didn't want the Promise Land lost to all the people again for their disobedience. Disobeying the Lord can lead to some harsh judgments. And another walk in the desert would have been devastating since they were that close in entering the Land Promised by The Lord. Again you back it up with scripture. Blessing and enjoy your Fall weather. 38 degrees here right now.

Numbers 31:15
"Have you allowed all the women to live?" he asked them.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Once again a very difficult chapter to choose a verse on which to comment. Apparently, ALL were to be killed, whether man or woman but it was not evident when the command was given, unless the original Hebrew language indicated differently. However, Moses was quite disturbed to see that many had not been eliminated, and he had to give further instructions to finish the job.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Lloyd verse 16 explains fully who was killed, only the ones who enticed Israelites to be unfaithful. and 17 and kill every woman who slept with a man. And in verse 18 every girl was saved who has never slept with a man. Today would be different because of Gods Grace,you can Repent and be saved. Acts 2:21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Thanks for the information on you out reach. Blessings as we Follow Him, a Risen Savior.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
Yes, it does say it there Peter, and I may have missed something but I don't believe it was stated in the original command, and to me it was confusing, that it wasn't. It just seemed that after the mission Moses was angered, unless I missed something in the original command. Have a great week, Peter. :-)

Numbers 30:16
These are the regulations the Lord gave Moses concerning relationships between a man and his wife, and between a father and his young daughter still living at home.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
This chapter shows that the father of his daughter, or, the husband of his wife has authority over what the daughter or wife has proclaimed. I believe it is a matter of respect, and does not give the male the right to abuse, to the father or husband but the Lord created man first and the woman from the man. Some may be offended by that but God has the ultimate authority. 1Cor 7:4  The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband. And likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife. 1Tim 2:12  But I do not allow a woman to teach, or to exercise authority over a man, but to be in silence. (13)  For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
Amen Lloyd you explained this verse very well. Gods regulations for marriage is strict. Because He values marriage highly for the well-being of man. Again as we see the Christian view, God tells the wife, "As the Church submits to Christ, the wife must submits to her husband. You had some great verse to back up your insight to this verse. Continued Blessings on this Lords Day. Any feed back on your out reach last weekend?

Numbers 29:36
Present as an aroma pleasing to the Lord a food offering consisting of a burnt offering of one bull, one ram and seven male lambs a year old, all without defect.
Lloyd S.
Lloyd S. from Trenton, ON said:
We notice that each and every aniumal offered as a sacrifice to the Lord was to be without defect. This was a preview of Jesus Christ, who was without sin, and was sacrificed for the whole world to wash away our sins. But we must remember that for our sins to be washed clean by the blood of Christ, we must confess our sins to Christ and repent of those sins, as we invite Him to be Lord and Savior of our lives. Acts 3:19  Therefore repent and convert so that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. Heb 9:28  so Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many. And to those who look for Him He shall appear the second time without sin to salvation.
Peter B.
Peter B. from Buchanan, MI said:
You nailed it Lloyd, all these verses in this chapter is a preview of Jesus Christ. And as you stated in previous chapters, sacrificing animals is no more. And as believers in Jesus Christ we have that special/ personal relationship, of being washed in His Blood for our sins. Praising God Daily, brother Lloyd.
