Joshua Installed as Leader

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua son of Nun, Moses’ aide:“Moses my servant is dead. Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan Riverinto the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.

“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

10 So Joshua ordered the officers of the people: 11 “Go through the camp and tell the people, ‘Get your provisions ready. Three days from now you will cross the Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the Lord your God is giving you for your own.’”

12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 “Remember the command that Moses the servant of the Lord gave you after he said, ‘The Lord your God will give you rest by giving you this land.’ 14 Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, ready for battle, must cross over ahead of your fellow Israelites. You are to help them 15 until the Lord gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land the Lord your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the Lord gave you east of the Jordan toward the sunrise.”

16 Then they answered Joshua, “Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go. 17 Just as we fully obeyed Moses, so we will obey you. Only may the Lord your God be with you as he was with Moses. 18 Whoever rebels against your word and does not obey it, whatever you may command them, will be put to death. Only be strong and courageous!”

  • Ne'eman thank you Lord for always being there through battles and whatever you tell me to do is yes because in the end it comes with an reward (possession of the beautiful land God is giving you)

  • This sounds conditional because it states "Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful."  

    In Matthew 5:17: Jesus says, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill.” For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes. Jesus Christ did magnify and exalt the law by showing its spiritual intent, or the spirit of the law, demonstrating its true significance and value. 

    1. I declare and decree in the name of Jesus~ The Lord will give you (I Am A Ruby Ministries) every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses. Your region will extend from the desert to your country, and from the great river, the Euphrates—all the Hittite country—to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. No one will be able to stand against you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them. Not one word will fall to the ground and it shall manifest amen...

  • Trust in God and obey for He will fight the battle.
    • Yes he will and I rather have God fight my battle then to do my own thing because let's be honest doing our own thing gets us into trouble where we don't want to be ne'eman

  • Joshua was leader and obedient to God. The Lord was with Joshua to give instructions on how to lead.

    With encouragement from the Lord and staying focus on the Lord meditating on his laws. Acknowledging

    God how to work with the Israelites to lead them to the land of promise.

    Peace and Love:

  • THANK YOU LORD THAT I AM STRONG AND COURAGEOUS
  • Mentorship its vital too keep the work of the Lord flowing. When we have this type of mindset sucess, possession, and mantle are made available. Amen, Lord thank you for Heaven sent Mentorship!!!!
  • Amen
  • amen

  • I long for this in the Church/ Body of Jesus Christ that we would get back too reverence for the leadership in the Church my Goodness we would be so far in the process of looking and acting like our Lord Jesus Christ and we could walk in total victory over the enemy. They responded to Joshua just as they had Moses with love and respect.
