Wealth Building By the Word of God

Deuteronomy 4 is a section of scripture that places strong emphasis on hearing the Word of God.  Chapters 1-3 of Deuteronomy are an exposition on the sin and failure of Israel in the wilderness.  How would they move from their sin and wandering to entrance into the promised land?  The answer was found in listening to the Word of God.

Verse 1 is the encouragement to LISTEN or HEAR the Word of God, as the key to prosperous living, or doing well on the journey.

Verses 2-4 gives the key to survival in a toxic environment . . . LISTEN to the Word of God.

Verse 6 tells us that the Word of God and the presence of God will make God’s people attractive to others . . . a city set on a hill.

Verses 7,8 let us know that God speaks to us.

Verses 8-12 informs us that HEARING is the new SEEING.  If we want to SEE God’s glory we must LISTEN to God speaking; HEAR His Word.  Verse 12 say, “You heard the sound of words, but saw no form.”  Deuteronomy 5:4 tells us that the Lord talked with Israel face to face on the mountain from the midst of the fire.  5:23,24 refers to Israel hearing the voice from the midst of the darkness.  “Surely the Lord our God has shown us His glory and His greatness, and we have HEARD His voice in the midst of the fire.  We have seen this day that God SPEAKS with man; yet he still lives.”

Verse 40 lets us know that HEARING and KEEPING the Word of God are the major keys of access to a long and good life in the land God gives to us.  The land is the created element that connects us with the presence of God.  The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.  And, He chooses to provide us with land; the part of creation that contains the gold, silver, and precious stones; the part of creation that we farm and build upon.

Deuteronomy 33:13-17 describes the prophetic blessing on Joseph.  The blessing is connected with the land.  The land provides what are called precious things, precious fruits, precious produce, and the best things.  The land is accessed by hearing and obeying the Word of God.
