Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Joshua 5:12


5:12 The manna ceased - Which God now withheld, to shew that Manna was not an ordinary production of nature, but an extraordinary and special gift of God to supply their necessity. And because God would not be prodigal of his favours, by working miracles where ordinary means were sufficient. The morrow - That is, on the seventeenth day.

    It gladden my heart to know firstly, that my enemy is dispirited because I have cross over.
    But what amazed me the most, is this awesome question asked, What do you see when you know your enemy is dispirited? He that is for you or against you?
    And finally, the heart of a true worshipper when he comes in contact with his savior, His heart cry is, what will you have me do?
  • Kengelmann
    When Joshua sees the man with sword he asks the man if he is for them or he is for the adversaries. The man says 'as the captain of the host of the Lord I am now come". All I can say to that is Hallelujah!!

    Verse 12~the manna had been miraculously provided by Jehovah God to sustain his people in the wilderness and once the purpose is served was up, they no longer had to eat of it.
  • Joyce Joseph
    As Captain of the Lord's host am I come. The presence of God was always with the children of Israel throughout their whole journey but at this point the Almighty God had to show Joshua that the Captain who was Jesus Christ himself was with with them.
  • Isaac
    just like the israelites,we do also in Salvation,we go through the waters of baptism,and we are circumsised from the heart with the infilling of the Holy Ghost and the Lord Jesus Christ becomes our Captain and our finisher of our faith,thats why we stand in holiness in Jesus Christ ,thats why we go from victory to victory,thank you Jesus !!
