This week we explore why God chose six days to walk around the city, and why not two or three? What could God possibly be teaching the nation of Israel and more importantly us? Today we look at the message God was sending as He commanded the people to march in a orderly, mundane parade for six days!
The Lord told Joshua He had already given him the city, its army, and its king, so the only real question was, how? Today we will begin to look at the steps Joshua takes at the Lords request, to remove the one thing that stood between Joshua and what the Lord had already given him, the walls!
This week we continue to look at those last final steps, before Joshua begins to stare down Jericho. This week we see how God finishes the picture He paints for those who will enter the promise land one day, which ends as one commander stares down another, only one is none other than Jesus Himself
Today we look at an interesting anomaly in the life of Israel, a forty year halt to the practice of circumcision. The big question is why? Today we will look at what it was meant to teach the generation that would enter the promised Land,and their children. We will also look at its message to us!
After the miraculous parting of the waters at the Jordan River, the Lord requires a monument be built. This is meant to be a memorial and reminder to all the generations that will follow. This week we will look at the symbolism and purpose behind it and what it is meant to say to us today.
This week we look at the significance of the Ark of the Covenant resting in the Jordan River as the means for parting the water. Unlike when the waters parted at the Red Sea, now they will part for a people both called and then chosen to enter the promise land. Today we explore this important story.
Today we look at why an entire chapter related to the conquest of Jericho is devoted to Rahab the Harlot. Here we see how Gods plan for the gentiles is intimately woven into Israel's history. Listen as we look at how Rahab, a distant relative of Jesus, is adopted by the Israelites and why it occurs.
This week we begin looking at the story of Jericho. Despite what many think, Jericho was no real challenge for the nation of Israel. With that being said, God imploys a series of almost comical instructions in order for them to take the city. Today we begin looking at the greater meaning of Jericho.
Everyone can relate to a first day on the job! But can you imagine for a moment what that day was like for Joshua? When you think about the job description, who conducted his orientation, and how quickly he is thrown into the fire, it becomes obvious, this was not your typical first day on the job!
This week we look at the moment Moses passes the baton to Joshua, and how he chooses to leave the stage in a graceful and noble way, while leaving a lasting legacy for Joshua to reflect on in the future. Here we take one final look at the man who had the single greatest impact on Joshua's life.
This week we look at the lesson Joshua took away from the plague at the Graves of Lust, which was simple, God's will is that we desire Him more than anything else in this life!
Today we will look at how God would teach Moses and the young Joshua something about God's ability to meet our needs and bring about whatever He promises. Like something from an Alfred Hitchcock movie, the Lord teaches us, we need never question the ability of the God who can!
Today, we continue to look at Joshua's presence at the anointing of the seventy elders, and the great plague that was to follow. Asking ourselves, how it may have shaped his thinking, and what it might speak to us today.
Now Joshua, still a young man, witnesses the anointing of the seventy elders, and the plague, at the Graves of Lusts. These two events will no doubtly leave a lasting impact on the young Joshua. Listen as we continue to explore, Joshua's time of preparaion!
This week we will continue to look at the first tent of meeting, the prototype that set the precedent for all corporate worship that would follow. We will also look at what impact this would have had on the young Joshua, and why he chose to remain within the tent, close to the presence of God.
Joshua’s time of preparation took the better part of five decades. The first time we meet him he is on the battlefield before Amalek, the next time he appears, he is on the mountain with Moses, this week he is refusing to leave the tent of meeting. Listen as we continue with the life of Joshua.
For everyone God uses,he prepares, and for Joshua, there would be no exception. Before Joshua would lead the nation in the conquest of Canaan, he would spend the better part of five decades being discipled by Moses. This week we will continue to look at Joshua’s time of preparation.
Joshua's ministry began with over fifty years of preparation under the leadership of Moses. This served to be a time without which he would have never been prepared for all that lay before him. This week will begin looking at how Joshua was prepared to lead God's people into the promise land.
This week we will look at a passage that we are all aware of, but probably haven’t given much consideration to, and that being the story of Peter cutting off the ear of one who came to arrest Jesus. What can we glean from those moments, and what might it teach us about ourselves?
Today we live in a world where people want to listen about Jesus, instead of live for Jesus, a world where we come to church to use and take, instead of give and serve. We live in a world where believers feel they are entitled, instead of indebted. Whatever happened to Living for Jesus?
