They share a common, regrettable bond. Both were loose-knit confederations that gave us some of the greatest talent this country has ever produced. Yet most all of that talent was forced to showcase their skills in second-class environments beneath the cultural plateau they deserved.
Joshua is the compelling history of the fulfillment of that promise. For that to occur, however, we need to be serious in our study of Scripture. For those who want the message of Joshua to positively influence their lives for God, the following four words are offered as food for thought: My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God? Sadly, men too often seek to fill the void in their souls with things that never truly satisfy.
We were all created with a void that only God Himself can satisfy. The psalmist recognized this and after the analogy of the deer thirsting for water, spoke of the thirst in his soul that only God could fill.
The most effective Bible study occurs when we study out of a thirst to know God. May it be so as we study the book of Joshua.
In our fast foods, mall-oriented society where we expect everything to be quick and easy, we too often approach our Bible study in the same way. Effective Bible study is hard work and requires diligence as in anything worthwhile if we want to accomplish much.

And so today, conflict and conquest by faith go with laying hold of that which we have positionally in Christ; the experience of our blessings in Christ comes through faith in the midst of conflict.
After years of slavery in Egypt and 40 years in the desert, the Israelites finally are able to enter the Promised Land. Abraham, a sojourner and alien all his life, never really possessed the country to which he was sent. The only piece of ground he owned he purchased himself as a burial plot for Sarah and his family, the cave and field of Machpelah Gen.
In the book of Joshua that long anticipated promise became a reality. Secondary Purpose The secondary purpose is to show that just as God had taken them out of Egypt by faith in the power of God, so He would take them in to possess the land through faith in the power of God.
It emphatically declares the truth that though justified by faith, as was Abraham, or delivered out of bondage, as was Israel from Egypt, victory over those enemies of life that stand opposed to our walk with God must come through faith in the power of God as well Josh 1: Other factors support Joshua as the author: The evidence, then, supports Joshua as the author of the book.By Jane Nixon White on December 17, The Masterkey, Book I in Olivia Wildenstein's Masterful series, is an introduction to the characters who appear throughout the series.
