Yesterday, to stop the corona virus from starving us spiritually, my
church asked me to teach the Sunday school lesson I would have taught
had the virus not struck. Today’s attached devotional give you an
important insight into that blessed book! God bless you!
Because of Calvary,
Joshua 1:1-5 (ESV)
1 After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, 2 “Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory. 5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you.
“Joshua is clearly a type of Christ. His name Yeshua (‘Jehovah is Salvation’) is the Hebrew equivalent of the name Jesus. In his role of triumphantly leading his people into their possessions, he foreshadows the One who will bring ‘many sons to glory’ (Heb. 2:10).” [Bruce Wilkinson & Kenneth Boa, Talk Thru the Bible, (Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1983), p. 54]
