The Book of Deuteronomy

Chalcedon link here.

This is the book that prepares us for living out the law of God, when we shift from being babies of God to being men of God.

From preparation and training, to conquest and victory.

The securing of our inheritance, which by definition demands the fall of the giants that despises God.

*waves to the Secularist power structure*

Especially note Deuteronomy chapter 11, where we are prepared to win, in time and on earth. And we secure our victory with obedience to God and His law, in time and on earth.

“You shall therefore keep the whole commandment that I command you today, that you may be strong, and go in and take possession of the land that you are going over to possess, and that you may live long in the land that the LORD swore to your fathers to give to them and to their offspring, a land flowing with milk and honey.

Deuteronomy 11:8-9, English Standard VErsion

Also, see Calvin’s commentary on Deuteronomy, which is better (more Biblical, less humanistic) than even his Institutes.

Note especially what happens when we enter the land, in Joshua.

While the people of Israel were encamped at Gilgal, they kept the Passover on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening on the plains of Jericho. And the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and parched grain. And the manna ceased the day after they ate of the produce of the land. And there was no longer manna for the people of Israel, but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

JOshua 5:10-12, English Standard Version

Joshua naturally follows Deuteronomy.

Be prepared to work, in accordance to the Law and guided by the Holy Spirit, in order to win.
