The Sermon …………………………Deuteronomy 4: 32-34, 39-40
“Ask now about the former days, long before your time, from the day God created man on the earth; Ask from one end of the heavens to the other. Has anything so great as this ever happened, or has anything like it ever been heard of? Has any other people heard the voice of God speaking out of fire, as you have, and lived? Has any God ever tried to take for himself one nation out of another nation, by testings, by miraculous signs and wonders, by war, by a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, or by great and awesome needs, like all the things the Lord your God did for you in Egypt before your very eyes? Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on earth below. There is no other. Keep His decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you and that you may live long in the land the Lord your God gives you.”
THE LORD, YOUR GOD – HE IS GOD!
