The Man of God from Judah: the middle part
"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ." - Galatians 1:8-10
1 Kings 13

Safe Places Deuteronomy 33:26-29As we look for refuge in safe places, the sanctuary is always one of the most. Peaceful places. To know that you're safe from all harm. My mother was caught in a storm with my dad one time and the wind blew his hat off his head. And my dad was more concerned about trying to find that hat than he was to get to the shelter of Refuge. But I'm glad. That each and every one of us have a refuge in Jesus Christ that gives us the greatest safety in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And so no one has ever given us the best place of our sanctuary like Jesus himself. God blesses us with protection. He Himself is our shield and defender. God is our provision, supply, and prosperity. He meets every necessity and need of life.God gives us security, safety. No matter what may confront us, God secures us and delivers us from overwhelming fear.God gives us victory over all the enemies of this life. As we march to the promised land of heaven, God empowers us to conquer all the trials and temptations of life.God is our refuge and support. Underneath are His everlasting arms that hold us up and support us.
On many occasions, Moses went up a mountain to meet with God. In Deuteronomy 34, he would do so once again - but this time, he would not return.
What can we learn from the death of Moses? That will be the focus of today's study.
Questions That We'll Answer:
A) How old was Moses when he died? What was his health like?
B) Who buried Moses? And where is he buried to this day?
C) What did Moses see from the mountain prior to his death?

Sermon: "THE FAVOR OF HIM WHO DWELT IN THE BUSH."
I. The Revelation of God
II. The Incarnation of God
III. The Proclamation of God
THROUGHOUT REDEMPTIVE HISTORY GOD HAS REVEALED HIMSELF
And of Joseph he said:
"Blessed of the LORD is his land,
With the precious things of heaven, with the dew,
And the deep lying beneath,
14 With the precious fruits of the sun,
With the precious produce of the months,
15 With the best things of the ancient mountains,
With the precious things of the everlasting hills,
16 With the precious things of the earth and its fullness,
And the favor of Him who dwelt in the bush.
Let the blessing come 'on the head of Joseph,
And on the crown of the head of him who was separate from his brothers.
17 His glory is like a firstborn bull,
And his horns like the horns of the wild ox;
Together with them
He shall push the peoples
To the ends of the earth;
They are the ten thousands of Ephraim,
And they are the thousands of Manasseh." Deuteronomy 33:13-17
This morning Pastor Randy will speak on a peculiar verse from Deuteronomy 33 and see how this typifies Gods redemptive work for all time. God chooses to reveal Himself and His favor at every moment in redemptive History. Our task as preachers and pastors is to faithfully teach what God has revealed.
