    Here are my notes, for my next Wednesday night Bible study.......


    ====================================
    June 22, 2011 -THE DOCTRINE OF PRESERVATION- (2)
    ====================================
    Continuing with a series of lessons on.....❝the Bible’s preservation❞!
    ====================================
    LETS GO TO....... Deuteronomy 4:1-6
    ====================================
    -❝GOD’S❞ THREE(3) WARNINGS.....NOT TO MESS WITH HIS WORD-
    (Warnings.....that wicked men will ignore:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    But warnings......that let us know:
    What kind of attack to expect!
    ------------------------
    The way Satan will be attacking God’s Word!
    ====================================
    (1) -GOD’S 1ST WARNING- Deuteronomy 4:1-6
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:1A Now therefore hearken, O Israel,
    -GOD’S WORD IS HERE....SO WE CAN HEAR FROM THE LORD-
    (Without a 100% reliable Bible:)
    We can’t be sure we are hearing from Him!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:1B unto the statutes and unto the judgments, which I teach you,
    -THE ONLY SOURCE WE HAVE....FOR THE LORD’S TEACHINGS-
    (Without exception...“all” of man’s teachings:)
    Will be filled with error(large & small):
    --------------------------------------------------
    This is why the LORD knows....we need a reliable Bible!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:1C for to do [them],
    -GOD’S PURPOSE.......FOR PRESERVING HIS WORD FOR US-
    (So we can obey Him:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Now we can see....Satan’s big picture:
    When he attacks God’s word:
    ------------------------
    It is to keep us from being obedient!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:1D that ye may live, and go in and possess the land
    which the LORD God of your fathers giveth
    you.
    -GOD’S BLESSING UPON ALL THOSE....WHO FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS-
    (We will have....His perfect presence in our lives:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    But unbelief and sin...hinders this presence......
    Psalms 66:18
    “If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear [me]:”

    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:2A Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you,
    neither shall ye diminish [ought] from it,

    -GOD’S FIRST WARNING....ABOUT MESSING WITH HIS WORD-
    (Which seems simple enough:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    A warning that every honest scribe was aware of:
    And took very seriously!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:2B that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God
    which I command you.
    -SOMETHING WE KNOW.....THAT GOD WAS VERY SERIOUS ABOUT-
    (After all...the Bible is God’s commandments to us:)
    So He is very motivated to preserve it:
    --------------------------------------------------
    And He....is God!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:3A Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor:
    -A CLEAR EXAMPLE.....IN DIRECT CONTEXT OF THIS WARNING-
    (“Look what I did to others”:)
    “Who disregarded my warnings!”
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:3B for all the men that followed Baalpeor,
    the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from
    among you.
    -THE LORD TAKES THESE INSTRUCTIONS.....VERY SERIOUSLY-
    (Therefore we should also:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    By not taking any man’s opinion:
    Over that.....of God’s clear Word!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:4 But ye that did cleave unto the LORD your God
    [are] alive every one of you this day.

    -WHAT WE ARE DOING....WHEN WE PUT TRUST IN GOD’S WORD-
    (We are cleaving unto the LORD:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Which is a very healthy thing to do!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:5A Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments,
    even as the LORD my God commanded me,

    -THE PREACHER’S ONLY SOURCE.....OF LIGHT FOR GOD’S PEOPLE-
    (The statutes and judgments of the LORD:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    We shouldn’t bring ANYTHING ELSE to the pulpit!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:5B that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.
    -THE CHRISTIAN’S ONLY SOURCE......OF GOD’S LIGHT FOR LIVING-
    (If we want to live a fulfilled Christian life:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Using God’s Word as our guide for life:
    Interjects the LORD Himself into our life!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:6A Keep therefore and do [them];
    -THE MAIN POINT......OF THIS SERIES OF LESSONS-
    (To teach us the importance of KEEPING THEM:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    This may be the most important issue of our life!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:6B for this [is] your wisdom and your understanding
    in the sight of the nations,

    -A GOLDEN NUGGET.....FOUND IN THIS PASSAGE-
    (That hits the nail of this issue on the head:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    In the light of all the “worldly wisdom” we have access to today:
    God’s Word remains our “only source” of true wisdom and understanding!
    ====================================
    Deuteronomy 4:6C which shall hear all these statutes, and say,
    Surely this great nation [is] a wise and understanding
    people.
    -GOD’S PLAN.....FOR WINNING THE WORLD TO CHRIST-
    (To have a people...who’s lives are really being changed:)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Because of the wisdom they gain from God’s Word!
    ====================================
