Prophecy - Deuteronomy 13



Prophecy - Deuteronomy 13

1 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, 
Test

future celebration
  present reformation

God’s people
God’s covenant (fidelity)
Conditional nature of the Covenant
beneficial destruction(al)

2 and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” 

journey - truth
destination God

3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul

listen temptation to execution

listen edification to redemption


4 It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.
