Deuteronomy 32:48-52; 34:1-12

In Deuteronomy 34 the greatest OT prophet dies. There would not be another prophet like Moses until the Lord Jesus Christ. Moses, however, in his death, as great as he was, shows that he was unable to bring the people of God into the promised land because of his sin. The prophet like Moses, but who far surpasses him, is able to bring all of God’s people into the land.

Deuteronomy 33:1-29

What are the last words of the greatest OT prophet? In Deuteronomy 33:1-29, Moses ends his recorded words before dying by pronouncing a blessing on his people. Because God is great, his people must be blessed. There is no one like God, and therefore there is no people blessed like the people of God. Do you recognize the blessings you have in Christ?

Deuteronomy 31:14-32:47

In Deuteronomy 32 Moses teaches the people the Song of Moses, meant to be a witness against the people when they sin. God is always good. All of heaven and earth testifies to this. There is never any excuse for sin. Even as we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself.

Deuteronomy 31:1-13

In today’s world masculine virtues and male leadership is derided and rejected.  What was required for transitioning from Moses’s leadership to Joshua’s?  Moses gives the answer in Deuteronomy 31:1-13: Strength and courage.  Masculine strength and courage that the world has forgotten.  Courage rooted in faith, upheld by the Word of God.

Deuteronomy 30:11-20

In Deuteronomy 30:11-20 Moses gives his concluding exhortations to the people of God to choose life.  He emphasizes that the Word of God is not far off or difficult.  It is near, even in our very mouths.  This Word is even nearer to us through Christ who came down from heaven and died in our place.  Moses then places life and death before the people.  This choice is placed before all in the call of the gospel.  By faith in…

Deuteronomy 30:1-10 (Part 4)

In Deuteronomy 30:6 Moses prophesies that God will circumcise the hearts of his people.  By speaking of this inward circumcision that God will sovereignly accomplish, Moses distinguishes between outward circumcision, which all the Jews received, from inward circumcision, which God gives through Christ.  Baptism, the new circumcision, has the same outward/inward dichotomy.  The Scriptures teach us to look to God to grant the new heart sovereignly, rather than placing our hope merely in the outward sign as the Catholics and…

Deuteronomy 30:1-10 (Part 3)

In Deuteronomy 30:1-10 Moses speaks fo the days when God will circumcise the hearts of his people. The fact that this is necessary shows that without God first circumcising the heart, no one can believe. Deuteronomy 30:1-10 shows that the entire Bible is one great story of God’s sovereign grace. Everything that we have, even faith, is a gift of God. May God be praised for his marvelous mercy to men.

Deuteronomy 30:1-10 (Part 2)

In Deuteronomy 30:1-10 Moses teaches that the people of God will one day return from exile at which point God will circumcise the hearts of his people. Paul teaches us that all the promises of God are “yes” and “amen” in Christ (2 Cor. 1:20). In this sermon Pastor Grasso shows how Christ fulfills all of the promises in Deuteronomy 30:1-10.

Deuteronomy 30:1-10 (Part 1)

In Deuteronomy 30:1-10 Moses speaks to the people of God about the day when they will be brought back from exile. When this happens God will circumcise their hearts. Throughout Old Testament history the people of God constantly turn away from him, but Moses promises a day when God will sovereignly put faithfulness into the hearts of his people. This passage becomes the foundation for much of what the prophets say and is foundational for the message of the bible.…

Deuteronomy 29:2-29

In Deuteronomy 29:2-29 Moses exhorts the people to obedience by impressing upon them God’s grace in saving them (2-9), the solemnity of the covenant (10-15), and the consequences for disobedience (16-29).  Every individual within the covenant community is responsible to the Lord to obey him.  Thus, too, in our day, every Christian is obligated to obey the Lord and follow him in light of his grace that he has shown.

Deuteronomy 28:14-29:1

The Bible is filled with passages that speak of the wrath of God. In Deuteronomy 25:15-29:1 Moses details the covenant curses for disobedience. All of things are meant to be a warning to the people of God to encourage them to repent, and they are meant to be a warning to all today, for those who disobey God will be undergo even more severe punishments than what Israel faced. This message of wrath is a message of grace. It is…

Deuteronomy 28:1-14

Covenants include blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience. In Deuteronomy 28:1-14 Moses lays out the blessings for obeying God. All of these blessings point to the greater realities of the blessings of the new heavens and the new earth, and though obedience in no way contributes to one’s merit before God, it is necessary to obtain the blessing. All those redeemed by Christ live a life of obedience.
