Out of Revelation and now finishing up Deuteronomy. It is an amazing book. I just don’t see how anyone can read the Old Testament and think that God is this angry, vindictive, judgmental God. Rather, I see a God of patience, compassion, love, and grace. Anyway, Moses wrote and taught a song to the people of Israel right before he died and they were entering into the land. It is found in Deut. 32. It is wonderful!
Ascribe greatness to our God!
The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteousness and upright is He.
He has made you and established you.
And in the howling waste of a wilderness;
He encircled him, He cared for him,
He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
That hovers over its young, He spread His wings and caught them,
He carried them on His pinions.
The Lord alone guided him…
He made him ride on the high places of the earth…
And there is no god besides Me;
It is I who put to death and give life.
I have wounded and it is I who heal,
And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.
For He will avenge the blood of His servants,
And will render vengeance on His adversaries,
And will atone for His land and His people.”
Deuteronomy 32:3,4,6,10,11, 39,43
