Don't Forget to

This Parashah covers the 2nd Song of Mosheh. Chapter 32 of Deuteronomy is called in the Ancient Near Eastern Context, a Covenant lawsuit and it legal ramifications to the breaking of the covenant. Also, it serves as a witness against the children of Israel. We should make an effort to learn this song and understand our duty to the covenant with our Great Suzerain YHVH.

We have seen how the world is taking a deep breath trying to figure out what to do in Syria in recent years and what kind of action to take for their chemical weapons use. One of the main arguments is about what legal right does the U.S. has to declare a limited war on Syria. The language used in this political issue is that of a covenant lawsuit against Syria for transgressing on a Covenant they signed 100 years ago. Syria agreed that they would not use chemical weapons and they broke that Covenant. So, now the world can take legal case to stop the killings in Syria. Haazinu is written as a song but with the legal characteristics of a Covenant Lawsuit. We will also connect some of the Metaphors used in the Ancient Near East with connection to the Torah and the message that YHVH is trying to convey to Israel as their God and Maker.

  1. Rico,
    Sorry about being excited about what your teaching. Now I’m only up to minute 24, too many notes. If I might put what you just said at minute 24 in my words: “Everything in the Bible is Temple related = dah! Yah says to Moses, go build a ‘sandbox’ illustration for My kids to understand according to the pattern that you saw on the mountain.”

    As Brad often says, He never calls us His adults, not even His adolescents, always, “His children” thus having to teach us over and over again.

    To answer your frequently question, yes this is making sense to me.

  2. Rico,
    I’m only up to minute 14 noting the timing of the fall feast types but all makes perfect sense. It might be of value for all to note that it is a mystery even to the angels thus to the Universe not revealed until the “last” trumpet, 1Cor.15:50-52. Sad to think we may go another 50 year cycle but Yah wishes none to be lost giving time for all to make the right choice for life, choose life, choice.
    But He will need to cut time short or no life will remain much like a cancer. If you wait too long the cancer will kill the “body”. Liberals understand cutting out cancer from “their” bodies but do not understand that Yah must cut out the cancer of sin, noting 1Cor.15:46, natural first then spiritual.
    Great teaching and I’ve only started. “Preach it brother!”
    Dan
