  • Brent Cairns
    Joe Montgomery. Verse 45 tells us that the Son of God, Jesus was present as Israel walked through the land of Moab, leading Joshua into the promised land. Jesus is the Captain of the Lord of Hosts and was worshipped by Joshua, prior to crossing the Jordan River and going over to the Canaanite cities of Gilgal, Jericho etc.

    Verse 6: ...that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.. HR 1242 115th Congress - 400 YEARS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY COMMISSION ACT Deuteronomy 28:66: And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee... Gennesis 15:13 - 14: ..and they shall afflict them four hundred years.. Time is up people.

    Joe Montgomery, my Spanish King James reads “Josué,” not “Jesus.” Josue translated to English is Joshua. And that makes sense because this verse is referring to Joshua taking Israel into the Promised Land. Hope this helps.

    Verse 45: "Which also our fathers that came after brought in with Jesus into the possession of the Gentiles …." - I do not understand what this is saying. Will someone please explain?
