- Refusal to obey the Word
of the Lord will always end in disaster. You cannot merely pledge obedience
and then go your own way. Obedience is a must!
- Those that God has chosen
He does not abandon. He truly wants the best for His people. Those that
stand in opposition to the people of the Lord have no hope of success. God
is able to restore His people from the most desperate of circumstances.
There is no amount of devastation that will stand in His way.
- The description of Jerusalem
as a ‘city without walls’ is clearly an allusion to the inclusion of the
nations. The Church becomes the fulfillment of the promise made to
Abraham. The Lord keeps His promises to His people! Nothing will ever
stand in the way of that as long as we remain obedient to Him.
- The Lord is the only one
that can remove sin. He can do it with a simple word from His mouth. The only
requirement that was given to Joshua was continued obedience to the Word
of the Lord.
- Apart from the power of
the Holy Spirit in our lives, the leaders of the Church are powerless to
build anything of value in the Kingdom of God.
- The way of the wicked will
- The vision of the crowning of Joshua as Priest/King points to Christ, whose name in Hebrew was ‘Joshua’ and who also came to be the Priest and King of His people.
