Deu 32:1 Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
God is reaching and speaking to the WHOLE EARTH, to everyone on this planet. Publishing, especially SPEAKING WORLDWIDE. God is commanding ALL to HEAR, read 1 John 4:6 where it shows WHO HEARS. Also reveals a WORLDWIDE work!
Deu 32:2 My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
This shows the end Result of God’s Work, it’ll reach all. In the end, ALL will be called. Like Rivers of Living Water. When Jesus Christ returns, The Holy Spirit will be open to ALL.
Deu 32:3 Because I will publish the name of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.
Showing that it is GOD doing His Work, who is speaking, who is being published! (Shows many are getting their focus off of who is doing the Work) And BECAUSE someone is publishing God’s Name and Truth, some shout for JOY! Read Zechariah 4:10. Ascribing it to God. Acknowledging God’s Work and giving thanks to God!
Deu 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.
Reminding everyone WHO IS IN CHARGE. JESUS CHRIST is! He is the head of God’s Work and Church! God’s Work(Shows people judging God’s Work) What is God’s Work? Read John 6:29. Ties in WHO God has sent to Preach and Teach WORLDWIDE! Fulfilling Matt 24:14. God says HIS WORLDWIDE WORK is “Perfect”. God’s response to the haters and doubters.
Deu 32:5 They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation.
God’s People turning away from God and Perverted themselves, Changing from God’s people to People of the World – Read Hosea 4:6. Describes what happened during the 1970’s, watering down and perverting the gospel and doctrines given to the Church through Christ’s Apostle Mr. Herbert W Armstrong. This continued after Mr. Armstrong’s death, ad continues today. Here God is pointing out the LIBERALS, the tares in the wheat. The Goats from the sheep.
Deu 32:6 Do ye thus requite the LORD, O foolish people and unwise? is not he thy father that hath bought thee? hath he not made thee, and established thee?
Even though they departed from God and His Work, they still think they’re following God, believing they’re still ministers of God. Read Hosea 4:6 again. He then has to remind them who had Bought them, who created them, who established them. They lost sight of God in the Picture. And they deal treacherously with God the Father, Read Malachi Chapter 2. Also read Revelation 3:14. God has begun His spiritual creation through His Church of the Philadelphia Era, the Beginning of the Creation of God, the firstfruits. The Worldwide Church of God.
Deu 32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
Indicates time has passed. Several generations at least. Just like us today. Our fathers generation were the last generation who were there under Mr. Armstrong. God says to GO BACK and read and remember what was TAUGHT! Read the literature of the Church. The books and booklets, Plain Truth magazine. Good News magazine. All of the Archive teachings preserved. And HOLD FAST to IT.
Deu 32:8 When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
Deu 32:9 For the LORD’S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
God’s People is scattered WORLDWIDE(divided to the nations) Read Revelation 7, God’s People is the 12 Tribes of Israel, Spiritual Israel.
Deu 32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Deu 32:11 As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings:
Deu 32:12 So the LORD alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
This was Mr. Herbert W Armstrong. Here God shows Him calling ONE man out of a Worldwide Wilderness of Religious, Economic, Political Confusion, teaching him, Protecting him. God alone led Him, shows no man was above him. It also shows the promise of protection to this man and his team God raised up to support him. These verses is just ONE proof that God uses ONE MAN at a time! He didn’t lead the Church as a congress of ministers. He doesn’t lead by committee. He leads with ONE MAN at a time.
Deu 32:13 He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock;
Deu 32:14 Butter of kine, and milk of sheep, with fat of lambs, and rams of the breed of Bashan, and goats, with the fat of kidneys of wheat; and thou didst drink the pure blood of the grape.
Here this man was sent to Kings, Emperors and Presidents(the high places of the earth). He was blessed that he enjoyed the High Quality and finer things of Life. He ate of the INCREASE, the tithes. Shows he was a minister of God. And He certainly was. Mr. Herbert W Armstrong was Christ’s Chosen Apostle and placed in the Ministry as such. Also ties into Zechariah, and the two Anointed ones, which oil flow through to the Church. Here it shows the source of the oil, the Rock, Jesus Christ.
Deu 32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation.
He God shows the Church getting into the Laodicean Condition. From the 1970’s on up. The Church Grew. But The Church turned from God and Despised God(Kicked), they despised the Apostle sent forth to the high Places of the Earth, and the Standard of Living God gave him. And by despising God’s Work through The Apostle they despised God, The ROCK. God became little in their eyes, because God’s Apostle became little in their eyes. They didn’t like he was going around the world talking to Kings, Emperors, Presidents, Prime Ministers, so they conspired against God’s Apostle. So in their eyes God wasn’t doing his job.
Deu 32:16 They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger.
They changed who and what God is and made strange gods. They set up their own leaders in place of God’s Chosen Apostle. Thus putting a god before God. They started changing Doctrines and Created NEW Doctrines. Making abominations, perversions of the Truth. Perversions of The Church of God. They implemented the STP program, changing from God’s government to Satan’s, creating an Abomination, a Abomination called the Systematic Theology Project(STP). AND THIS ANGERS GOD!!!
Deu 32:17 They sacrificed unto devils(demons), not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
They left God’s Church and as a vine broken off, they became Churches of Satan, of this world. When you splinter from God’s Church, like wood splinters they no longer are part of the original board or piece of furniture. They sacrifice to their new leaders, little gods, instead of Fearing THE GREAT GOD and the one God placed iin His Church. The people took God’s tithes and offerings and started to give it to these new Church Leaders and groups, when God says they’re actually giving them to the Demons who RUN THESE GROUPS and leaders! They started to teach that God is made of many groups who call themselves “God”, when they’re actually of the DEVIL!
Deu 32:18 Of the Rock that begat thee thou art unmindful, and hast forgotten God that formed thee.
They lost God from the Picture. Their minds are focused on MEN, their new gods. They lost how they began, and who formed them. The TRUE GOD. Showing they LEFT “The Worldwide Church of God” to other groups called by different names.
Deu 32:19 And when the LORD saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters.
Because they despised God, God despised them. Because they left God out in their hearts , God disfellowshiped them from Him. God cuts them off from Him. God saw the Righteous indignation of his sons and daughters because of the abominations they were doing. What they were doing provoked ANGER in those of God’s Church.
Deu 32:20 And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith.
Deu 32:21 They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.
All These splinter churches, Because they have rejected God and His Truth, Because they did NOT HOLD FAST to what we had. God rejects them, and he allows them to continue to have fruits, to an END. When God’s Church will go on into Eternity. Now God describes this people who have turned from Him. Because they have done these things to God and His people, He turns it on them and they reap what they sow. He allows them to fight among themselves and the world, as being of the world. Shows a spirit of division among them. Look at the Splinter groups that split away from God and The Worldwide Church of God. Even the WCG left itself and became a new entity called Grace Communion International.
Deu 32:22 For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains.
God describes their “END”, The Lake of Fire. But first God will send the following upon them.
Deu 32:23 I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them.
Deu 32:24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.
Deu 32:25 The sword without, and terror within, shall destroy both the young man and the virgin, the suckling also with the man of gray hairs.
God warns them of their end if they don’t repent. Even the suckling child will suffer from THEIR decision to choose this way, instead of God’s way. Remember what Jesus Christ said about women with child in these days. And those verses describe the Great Tribulation. So if you don’t repent during those days of the Great Tribulation, the Day of the Lord and the Lake of Fire is what’s left.
Deu 32:26 I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men:
Has this NOT happened??? They no longer know their identity, and they no longer speak about WHO they were! They are so and so Church, no longer The Worldwide Church of God. Herbert… who? Etc, etc. And they are so insignificant compared to God’s Church, that no one knows who they are! But many remember Mr. Herbert W Armstrong and The Worldwide Church of God. These other groups are just another church in the world’s eyes. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY What they teach WON’T be remembered among the future generations!
Deu 32:27 Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the LORD hath not done all this.
Deu 32:28 For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them.
Deu 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!
Deu 32:30 How should one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight, except their Rock had sold them, and the LORD had shut them up?
Deu 32:31 For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges.
Deu 32:32 For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter:
Deu 32:33 Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.
Deu 32:34 Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures?
Deu 32:35 To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.
Deu 32:36 For the LORD shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.
This shows that there will be some of God’s Church caught up in these churches. They were the shut ins, those whom the ministers didn’t seek out. Shows God is calling them back out of these groups to BE HIS CHURCH, not to some group calling themselves God’s Church. We have to BECOME God’s Church. WALK THE WALK. Out of the Churches caught up in this World and captive of Satan the Devil.
Deu 32:37 And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted,
Deu 32:38 Which did eat the fat of their sacrifices, and drank the wine of their drink offerings? let them rise up and help you, and be your protection.
These splinter churches will fall. God says, like Elijah did, perhaps through the Two Witnesses will say to the people of these groups, WHERE is your gods? These false preachers who they hold up above God? God says “let them RISE up”, meaning to resurrect.
And it concerns a time where one needs protection. God promises protection to the faithful Philadelphia Era of God’s Church. It is similar to what God says in Matt 25. Go to those that buy and sell and buy oil. Or go to those who SOLD OUT and try to buy oil. God mocks these leaders as Elijah did with the prophets of Baal. This most certainly will be done through the Two Witnesses, the ONLY ones who speak for God at the time.
Deu 32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
Deu 32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
So many believe they can kill and make alive(decide who makes or doesn’t make God’s Family), that they can make those judgements. They also think they are “healers”, but God says HE is the one who Heals! And so many think they will escape God’s attention.
Deu 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me.
Here God says those that turn from Him will Hate him(unless repented of before that point) This also God declaring His Day. The Day of The Lord, when He will intervene.
Deu 32:42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
Deu 32:43 Rejoice, O ye nations, with his people: for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries, and will be merciful unto his land, and to his people.
God avenges His peoople and Church, and punishes this World and It’s system called “Babylon”.
Deu 32:44 And Moses came and spake all the words of this song in the ears of the people, he, and Hoshea the son of Nun.
Here shows two men, perhaps ties back to the Two anointed ones in Zechariah. Moses, The MESSENGER of God, speaks to the People. Like the Angel, or messenger protesting to Joshua the High Priest.
Deu 32:45 And Moses made an end of speaking all these words to all Israel:
Deu 32:46 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law.
God says to pass on what God gave us through His Chosen Servant. Like Moses, Mr. Herbert W Armstrong was chosen by God as His Servant and Apostle. This is the same as saying HOLD FAST TO WHAT YOU HAVE. Read Revelation 3:11
Deu 32:47 For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
THE TRUTH, is not a vain thing here! AND IT IS A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH HERE! Because the Truth God gave us through His Apostle is LIFE, because it’s came from God! It is the Terms and Conditions of God’s Marriage Contract. And if you don’t HOLD FAST, don’t set your hearts, Don’t become conquered and engufed by God and His Truth and walk in it, you won’t have Eternal LIFE. Eternal Life is the prolonging of our lives. And our choice decides if we will receive Eternal Life or not.
Will we do what God says here? Who will we be? What will we be doing? God is setting before us, Life and Death. We have a choice to make.
