Summary of Lesson #3

10 points

1. God spoke "out loud" the Ten Commandments
      to the people.
      "Deut. 5:22"
Deuteronomy 5 (KJV)
22 These words the LORD spake unto all your assembly in the mount out of the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a great voice: and he added no more. And he wrote them in two tables of stone, and delivered them unto me.
2. The people were scared by God's speaking
      and so asked that God only speak to Moses.
      "Deut. 5:23-26"
Deuteronomy 5:23-26 KJV
23 And it came to pass, when ye heard the voice out of the midst of the darkness, (for the mountain did burn with fire,) that ye came near unto me, even all the heads of your tribes, and your elders; 24 And ye said, Behold, the LORD our God hath shewed us his glory and his greatness, and we have heard his voice out of the midst of the fire: we have seen this day that God doth talk with man, and he liveth. 25 Now therefore why should we die? for this great fire will consume us: if we hear the voice of the LORD our God any more, then we shall die. 26 For who is there of all flesh, that hath heard the voice of the living God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as we have, and lived?

3. God spoke all His commandments, statutes,
      and judgments directly to Moses.
      "Deut. 5:28"
Deuteronomy 5:28-31 KJV
28 And the LORD heard the voice of your words, when ye spake unto me; and the LORD said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken. 29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! 30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again. 31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

4. Israel was commanded through Moses to love
      "Deut. 10:17-19"
Deuteronomy 10:17-19 KJV
17 For the LORD your God is God of gods, and Lord of lords, a great God, a mighty, and a terrible, which regardeth not persons, nor taketh reward: 18 He doth execute the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loveth the stranger, in giving him food and raiment. 19 Love ye therefore the stranger: for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.

5. Israel was commanded also to offer sacrifices
      in a certain place.
      "Deut. 12:5"
Deuteronomy 12:5
5 But unto the place which the LORD your God shall choose out of all your tribes to put his name there, even unto his habitation shall ye seek, and thither thou shalt come: 6 And thither ye shall bring your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, and your tithes, and heave offerings of your hand, and your vows, and your freewill offerings, and the firstlings of your herds and of your flocks:

6. God added a covenant in Moab to the covenant
      given at Mt Horeb [Sinai].
      "Deut. 29:1"

1 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.

7. God added His words and commandments
      through the mouths of His appointed prophets.
      "Deut. 18:15"
Deuteronomy 18:15 KJV
15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

8. Unlike He did to Moses, God only spoke
      indirectly to His prophets by means of dreams and
      "Num. 12:6"
Numbers 12:6 KJV
6 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.

9. David as a prophet of God was authorized by
      Him to require instrumental music in worship.
      "2 Chron.29:25"
2 Chron.29:25
25 And he set the Levites in the house of the LORD with cymbals, with psalteries, and with harps, according to the commandment of David, and of Gad the king`s seer, and Nathan the prophet: for so was the commandment of the LORD by his prophets.

10. Israel could not add or take away from God's
      revealed word.
      "Deut. 4:2"
