Book Of Joshua: My Understanding

 

The Book of Joshua was a continued mission of God. Joshua was protected, never left nor forgotten. Joshua is the one who led the people of Isreal to a land flowing with milk and honey. It was important to be strong and courageous. Their journey led to an overflow of blessings and the ultimate test of faith. There were rivers to cross and vast grassland. The Lord lifted up the waters for them to cross the Jordan on dry ground.

Lesson: Trust a man or woman of God who speaks, practice and encourage others to believe the impossible. The Lord helped build a strong reputation for Joshua throughout the land. It seemed impossible to do alone but Joshua had faith.

This book also discusses how the Lord told the 12 Israelites to create a memorial of Stones for future generations like us. God knew we would want to see proof since the sins would blind us spiritually. We would ask what was the stones for. They piled 12 stones from the Jordan river for proof that God lifted the sea waters so they could cross.

In Jericho, God gave the Israelites a mission to take over the town. The Ram’s horn would be the calling to go to take over the land. The Arc of the Lord was carried with them on their journey. During the time of their destruction of Jericho, they were instructed to not take any gold, silver, iron or because it was heavenly treasures. Individuals within the Israelites decided to sneak and steal God’s treasure by burying them in the ground.

Lesson: God knows our every move because we are apart of God. Instead of going to each person who lied, and stole God’s possession privately, God called every single Israelite. The Lord called out each Tribe that had a guilty man. The clan within the tribe was then called, followed by the guilty man family. The guilty person within that family was finally be called out. In modern day, people would call that embarrassing to be called out in front of everyone.

In 2017, on this beautiful summer day, we share the same belief as our ancestors. You know the common saying “you represent your family, job, business, city, state, country, the human race, and most of all a being of God. God has given us commandments, laws, rules, and scriptures to help us follow a righteous path. Next, it states after the family of the thieves was stoned to death, the lord was no longer angry. To my understanding, the Lord poured his wrath on them. You reap what you sow. However, their consequences were more brutal in the ancient days.

The word got out about the Israelites journey of taking over lands. The people of Gibeon was so afraid of dying, they deceived the Israelites. Joshua got deceived because he didn’t consult with the Lord before making a treaty with them. Joshua was so committed to the Lord, they did not kill the towns due to the promise they made. Their oath was made in the name of the Lord. The people of Gibeon was cursed but not killed.

Lesson: We are guilty of taking action before consulting the Lord and experience the same thing of Joshua in 2017. All because he didn’t put God first, he got tricked. We must make sure we build a personal relationship with God so the enemy can’t deceive us anymore.

The act of God: A miraculous event occurred where the lord allowed the sun to stay in the middle of the sky and didn’t set like a normal day. It was from a prayer Joshua made in order to defeat the enemy. Wow!

The Book of Jashar was mentioned for the first time ever. This is amazing to see how the Bible has led me to another book of God during my God first mission. The book of Joshua taught a lot of lessons about discipline, leadership, loyalty, strength, and faith.

It is time for us to listen to that still voice from within and follow our intuition or spirit. You were created for a purpose. Live out that purpose.

​Trusting God is not Easy, but Worth IT

Trusting in God is not an easy task to do in the 21st century. Many times there are other beings, forces and energy living among us that try to influence us away from God. Has there ever been a time where you was ready to do the right thing, then something came in your path to stop you from changing from the better? What about when you know you are doing right by God but circumstances come up to make you feel like the world is falling down on you? It takes faith, courage, prayer, positive mental attitude and motivation to keep moving in the right direction.

Faith is the substance of things not seen. Faith is now. Faith is believing, even when you don’t see it. Faith is aoart of trusting God. Many people say its easier said then done. Ome recommendation to activate faith in your life is by learning who God is in your life, build a relationship with yourself and God. Learn how to love yourself and build a relationship with God. 

Courage is doing something fearlessly. Courage pushes a person to go after their dreams or do something the average person wouldn’t do. It is your strength to keep going, even when it look like the world is falling down on you. For example, let’s say something sacrificed something they love so they could accomplish a goal. After the sacrifice is complete, the plan doesn’t work out. That is not the time to give up and cry. It is the time to the courage to keep going. Try something else, until you recognize what God is trying to tel you. 

Prayer is what changes things. People think its a waste of time. Think of prayer as you talking to a powerful, spiritual being within you. You are the head and not the tail. You were created in Gods image. God wants to hear from you. God wants to have a personal relationship with you. If God is only a spiritual being living all around then it’s best for you to learn how to talk to God personally. Prayer lays in the power of tongue. Many don’t realizem the power of words and action. Remember God spoke words into the Universe to create the heavens, animals, light, day, and you. Learn how to pray so you can manifest Godly blessings in your life.

Having a positive, mental attitude through the good and the bad will make the  process go smoother. The bad times may make you feel like giving up but there must be positivity around to keep you going. Listen to positive music, inspirational speakers, or hang around positive minded people. 

Self-motivation is key to accomplishing all the other tasks. Is it easy to trust something you can’t see? There is a feeling at times that make you feel help is around, right? Motivate yourself to keep going. Out of all the key elements to push through faith, have courage, prayer and positive attitude, there must be a reason why you must keep going. That reason why must make you cry. Therefore, the challenges of doing the right things of God may be hard, but it’s WORTH IT.
