shalt be obedient unto his voice

"[23] Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the LORD your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the LORD thy God hath forbidden thee.
[24] For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
[25] When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger:
[26] I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed.
[27] And the LORD shall scatter you among the nations, and ye shall be left few in number among the heathen, whither the LORD shall lead you.
[28] And there ye shall serve gods, the work of men's hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell.
[29] But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul.
[30] When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
[31] (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
[32] For ask now of the days that are past, which were before thee, since the day that God created man upon the earth, and ask from the one side of heaven unto the other, whether there hath been any such thing as this great thing is, or hath been heard like it?
[33] Did ever people hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as thou hast heard, and live?
[34] Or hath God assayed to go and take him a nation from the midst of another nation, by temptations, by signs, and by wonders, and by war, and by a mighty hand, and by a stretched out arm, and by great terrors, according to all that the LORD your God did for you in Egypt before your eyes?
[35] Unto thee it was shewed, that thou mightest know that the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him.
[36] Out of heaven he made thee to hear his voice, that he might instruct thee: and upon earth he shewed thee his great fire; and thou heardest his words out of the midst of the fire.
[37] And because he loved thy fathers, therefore he chose their seed after them, and brought thee out in his sight with his mighty power out of Egypt;
[38] To drive out nations from before thee greater and mightier than thou art, to bring thee in, to give thee their land for an inheritance, as it is this day.
[39] Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.
[40] Thou shalt keep therefore his statutes, and his commandments, which I command thee this day, that it may go well with thee, and with thy children after thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days upon the earth, which the LORD thy God giveth thee, for ever."Deut 4:23-40

the Unity of God

It is 12:42 PM Sunday afternoon in the death flow. The sun came out this afternoon, blue sky and sunshine. I went outside and took some photos of our house and the snow. I also fed the birds while outside taking photos and shoveling snow off the walk to our front door. I am waiting for our snow plow man to come and clear our driveway of snow still.

Carol called this morning from the Pacific Northwest, they were getting ready to go church.

I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I got up made oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal while messing with our main computer. After messing our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and spent the morning mainly reading from a book titled, 'Theoretical-Practical Theology-Faith in the Triune God' Volume 2 by Petrus Van Mastricht Translated By Todd M. Rester Edited By Joel R. Beeke, Michael T. Spangler, Assistant Editor And Translator.

Not much else has gone today. Caleb called and said dinner would be around 4 o'clock PM. Football game starts around 3 o'clock PM, so I will walk down the street to their place around 2:45 PM this afternoon. Hang out there for awhile, see Josie and Cora (and Ollie their dog).

Last night I mainly messed with our main computer and read late into the night from a book titled, 'The Europeans: Three Lives And The Making Of A Cosmopolitan Culture' by Orlando Figes.

I will close to feel sleepy.
