The Book of Deuteronomy is the written record of the last sermon of Moses to the congregation of Israel. Preacher and people stood at a crossroads and both were heading in different directions. Moses knew he would never again address the children of Israel. His parting message was both solemn and heart-searching. It contained the following characteristics:
1: He recalled the way God had led them. 2: He reasserted the word God had spoken. 3: He recorded the warning for the future. 4: He reminded them of the work they must fulfil. 5: He reassured them for the warfare that lay ahead.
