Calvary Chapel West Jacksonville is honored to present this insightful teaching by Pastor Allen Victor, delving into the timeless wisdom found in these ancient blessings. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of God's faithfulness and His plans for His people.

Pastor Allen continues into chapter 34 which describes Moses' final moments, his death, and the passing of leadership to Joshua. These chapters mark the end of the Book of Deuteronomy and the conclusion of the life and leadership of Moses.

Deuteronomy 33: Join us for a deep dive into the powerful blessings Moses imparted to the various tribes of Israel, prior to his death.  Discover the significance of these blessings and how they relate to our lives today.

Each tribe receives a specific blessing tailored to its characteristics and historical role. Some key points include:

  1. Reuben, Simeon, Levi: Moses begins by blessing the tribes of Reuben, Simeon, and Levi, acknowledging their roles and characteristics.
  2. Judah: He then blesses the tribe of Judah, praising its strength and leadership.
  3. Benjamin: Benjamin is blessed, with Moses mentioning the Lord's protection over the tribe.
  4. Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh): Moses gives a lengthy blessing to Joseph's sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, emphasizing their prosperity and blessings from God.
  5. Zebulun and Issachar: These two tribes are blessed, with a focus on their contributions to trade and agricultural production.
  6. Gad: Moses blesses Gad, highlighting their military strength and the land they have been given.
  7. Dan and Naphtali: These tribes receive blessings as well, with Dan being described as a lion's cub and Naphtali as a deer.
  8. Asher: Moses blesses Asher, mentioning their prosperity and the richness of their land.
  9. Conclusion: The chapter concludes with a reminder of how God helped Israel throughout their history and how He is their refuge and strength.

Deuteronomy 34 marks the end of the Book of Deuteronomy and the conclusion of Moses' life. Some key points in this chapter include:

  1. Moses Views the Promised Land: God leads Moses to the top of Mount Nebo, from where he can see the Promised Land, though he is not allowed to enter it due to a previous disobedience.
  2. Moses' Death: The chapter records the death of Moses at the age of 120. He dies peacefully, and the text notes that his strength had not diminished.
  3. Joshua Appointed as Leader: Before his death, Moses lays his hands on Joshua and commissions him as the new leader to guide the Israelites into the Promised Land.
  4. Moses' Uniqueness: The chapter concludes by emphasizing that there has never been a prophet like Moses, with whom God spoke face to face and who performed numerous signs and wonders in the sight of the people.
