Discussion for Joshua 24

  • Anne
    With God's help and guidance, Joshua fulfilled his purpose by leading Israel into Canaan and settling them in the promised land, as God commanded. As he left he admonished them to choose whom they will serve and remined them of the consequences of their choice.
  • NOEL
    My brother and sisters in Christ Jesus, Its nice the life story of Joshua. He is only assistant and follower of Moses, but his hearth and mind is defecated to serve Moses and his almighty God. He don't know how to lead and protect the people but according to the bible Moses gave him the power to continued his mission given by our almighty God and his purposed nothing is impossible will domed.
  • A disciple
    "If you know these things, happy are you if you do them."God gives us commandments to live by and He expects obedience from the heart, as good and beloved children. Disobedience, selfishness and sinning against one's conscience, against one's God, against one's neighbor; is not a health issue, but a moral issue. "If you do right, won't you be accepted? but if you do not right, sin is at the door."
  • A disciple
    "Ye cannot serve the LORD: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins. If ye forsake the LORD, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good." It is the LORD's prerogative who is to be saved, and who shall serve Him; and He does not accept hypocrisy, lip-service or insincerity.
  • A disciple
    "..Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time..and they served other gods. And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan.." All Nations today are the children of Noah's sons, and of the new world after the flood; but only a small remnant are called of God out, chosen and faithful.

    1 Peter 2:9 "But ye are a CHOSEN generation...that ye should shew forth the praises of him WHO HATH CALLED YOU out of darkness..." We are a CHOSEN PEOPLE not a CHOOSING PEOPLE. NONE OF US EVER WOULD if it were up to us. Psalm 14:2-3 "The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God...there is none that doeth good, no, not one."
