Joshua 3-6:27 (New King James Version)
Israel Crosses the Jordan
How do you think you would feel if you saw several million people coming at ya?
Joshua told them to sanctify themselves for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders. If we will sanctify ourselves, the LORD will do wonders in our lives too!
God caused the Jordan River, Salt Sea, to divide so the people could go over on dry ground!
The Memorial Stones
Each appointed man from the twelve tribes picks up a stone from the middle of the Jordan River to be a memorial of when they passed over on dry land.
The Lord exalts Joshua as leader as he had Moses.
The Second Generation Circumcised
Amorites and Canaanites hearts melted when they saw the power of God and all the Israelites.
None of the Israelites had been circumcised while wandering in the wilderness (desert) for 40 years so Joshua now gives the order. The manna that had been sustaining them was no longer available because they were now able to harvest what was in the Promised Land.
The Commander of the Army of the LORD
15 Then the Commander of the LORD’s army said to Joshua, “Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy.” And Joshua did so. The Commander is Jesus!
The Destruction of Jericho
The walls come down, Rahab and her family are saved!
