D’VARIM STUDY NOTES

PARASHAH D’VARIM

DEUTERONOMY 1:1-3:22, Week 44

D’VARIM: “Words”

Moshe repeats the Law to Israel, in what he knows to be the end of his life on earth as the Leader of the Nation of Israel.  He leaves the LAW for this young, chosen generation who are about to CROSS OVER into their INHERITANCE.

MISHNAH TORAH: Repetition of Torah (A TEACHING TOOL for all generations)

ORATOR: Deliverer of the words; Moses Himself

LOCATION: EAST of the Jordan River (Moab)

THE AUDIENCE:  All of Israel, over 600,000 people as if told directly to EACH person

Moses Blesses:  May the Lord, the God of your fathers, increase your numbers a thousand-fold and bless you as He promised you!

DEVARIM OPENS 37 DAYS before the death of Moshe!

Some see Deuteronomy as a Covenant Renewal for the new generation who were not born as the people were freed from Egypt by Adonai, nor did they escape Pharaoh at the Red Sea!

First Day, Eleventh Month, Fortieth YEAR:  This was the time Adonai spoke to Moshe and gave instruction that he was to EXPOUND the Torah Law to the Nation of Israel before they crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land.

WORDS DESCRIBING ISRAEL’S JOURNEY WITH ADONAI FROM EGYPT TO THE JORDAN RIVER:

  • SAVED (By the blood of the lambs)
  • TAKEN OUT (Advanced out of Egypt as Moses led them)
  • REDEEMED (Lives redeemed by the laws of Moses from Adonai)
  • THE DWELLING (The Tabernacle or Sukkot, enabling the people to draw NEAR to God)
  • DISCONTENT / COMPLAINED

  • REBELLED
  • REPENTED
  • RESTORED
  • COUNTED
  • ALIGNED

  • BUILD (The Tabernacle structure, vessels, furnishings, woven screening)
  • PRACTICE (The Sacrificial / Priestly Holy Service)
  • FEARED (Not a true and honorable Fear of the Lord, but simply FEARED ADONAI!)
  • UNAUTHORIZED ADVANCEMENT (Nadav and Avihu, Sin of the Spies, etc)
  • LOST, WANDERING
  • GENERATIONAL DEATH (The 40th Year no one died!)
  • FORGIVEN
  • HOLY INHERITANCE
  • HOLY ADVANCEMENT
  • COMMAND TO DISPOSSES
  • COMMAND TO POSSESS

  • COVENANT PROMISES RE-ESTABLISHED BY ADONAI
  • COMMAND TO ADVANCE: CONQUER, TAKE POSSESSION, SUBDUE, INDWELL!

 Do you agree with the succession of events described here? What do you SEE as you read the historical progression? Is this the path of progression which we have each been a part of in our lives?  Do we share this sanctification process, as people of God?  How are we the same?  How are we different?

HAFTARAH READING: IS 1:1-2

Isaiah has a vision that describes Judah (Israel) and Jerusalem, during the reign of all 4 Israeli Kings during Isaiah’s prophetic ministry to Judah.

Through this dream the Lord accuses Israel of these things:

Rebellion, Abandonment of Adonai, Corruption, Violence, Injustice, Spiritual Apostasy, Materialism, Idolatry, Immorality among women, Occultism

In the Alcharit-Hayamim (Perilous Times) End of Days:

  • Zion will be “The Most Important Mountain”
  • Adonai’s House will be His Temple atop this Mountain!
  • People of other nations will say: “Let us go up to the Mountain of Adonai!”
  • For out of Zion will go Forth TORAH!
  • He will judge between the nations and arbitrate for many peoples!
  • Then they will hammer their swords into plow blades…their spears into pruning knives!

For you have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob!

They are filled from the east, full of sorcerers, like the P’lishtim, even the children of foreigners are enough for them!

Their land is full of silver and gold!

They have no end of Treasures.  Their land is full of horses, they have no end of chariots!

Their land is full of IDOLS, everyone worships the work of his hands, what is own fingers have made.

 

 BRIT CHADASHAH READING:  Hebrews 3: 7: through 4-11

  • Do not harden your hearts!
  • In the Wilderness your fathers put me to the Test.
  • They challenged me, and they saw my work for 40 Years!
  • Therefore, I am disgusted with that generation (A generation being a group of people who lived at the same time in history…not necessarily a NUMBER of YEARS)
  • Their hearts are always going astray, they have not understood how I do things.
  • In my anger I swore they would never ENTER MY REST!

7)  Watch out so there will not be any one of you with an evil heart…lacking trust…which could lead you to apostatize from the living GOD!

8)  DO YOU BELIEVE THERE IS STILL A CALL FROM GOD FOR ‘SHABBAT KEEPING’ IN THIS DAY…BY GENTILE BELIEVERS?

Are we commanded under the law to obey, or are we motivated to obey by the matters of the heart?

Therefore, let us do our best to enter HIS REST so that no one will fall short, forgetting Adonai’s instruction, thus ceasing to care!

THE MILLENNIAL REIGN OF YESHUA WILL BE A 1,000 YEAR REST IN YESHUA HA MASCHIA!

The Jewish sages say:

Six thousand years the world will exist, and one thousand, the seventh, it shall be desolate, as it is written,

“And the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day! (Isa 2:11)

‘For 1,000 years in Your God’s eyes are but a day that has passed!’ {Is. 90:4)

 

 John 15:1-11

By the WORDS of Yeshua, we are pruned by the Vine Dresser! 

We cannot BEAR FRUIT apart from our intimacy with Yeshua! 

Apart from our UNION with Yeshua, we can do NOTHING! 

Without this union, the branches will be cut off and thrown in the FIRE! ‘If you remain UNITED with me and my words with you, then ask whatever you want and it will happen for you.  This is how my Father is glorified – in your bearing much fruit!  This is how you will prove to be my Talmidim!’  

The Words of Jesus to His disciples encourage us to make disciples of all men!
