Discussion for Joshua 23

    At point of death Moses parting woods to Isreal was that he knew they will transgress because they are stiff necked , Jushua too has said same ..when ye have transgressed... So they transgressed. I feel our Pastors and parents should learn from this and prophesy positive even in the face of stubborness

    Yes, God did put the Israelites in a great place with their enemies submissive to them. What about the warning that God gave them. People want to over look that, and that is why this nation is where it is today. We haven 't taken that warning seriously, or we don 't think it applies to us today. What is more the truth is that people are not even aware of what God has said because Gods word is not even important enough to read and learn what He likes and dislikes. God is the same today as He was yesterday. I believe God is angry with His children today. Look around are we not living the very way He said not to live? We have taken other Gods in our Churches. Celebrating Easter on our High Sabbath. Passover is not rolling eggs and worshiping Fertility Gods. Our own Dictionary tells us that Easter is a Pagan Holliday. This is done in spite of what God has said, and there are many other things that "Christians " allow that spits right in Gods eye. Men marring Men, Women Marring Women. People act like God doesn 't even exist. There is a hell to pay. In His service.

    great love it ,the word cleave reminds me of genisis when the Lord said a man must leave mother andfather and be joined, to his wife, we might use the word cleave also , so that they may be one, just as Elijah and his servant
  • Brianna Wilson for verse 14
    This certainly is a faith strengthening scripture. Joshua had faith in Jehovah God's promise to deliver them! Today we can be sure that Jehovah will keep his promise to restore the earth to a paradise, and deliver his faithful ones.
