Discussion for Joshua 5:13

  • Paul F, Boyer on Joshua 5:13
    Speaks as much to a Christians Life, as much as any country. Doesn 't matter what I think is right or what side is right, the Angels answer is compelling especially in todays world. God 's Word is True through ages eternity. No matter what Man does in his idea of right, one of many measurements of what men will reap is that Angels answer.The country 's or a mans answer or choice to that Angels reply is what they will reap. Oh that the choice would honor and live by that reply. Unceasing prayer till the Lord takes me Home.

    Its very important that we be what God has call us to be. Joshua was a man of God and was also strong in his faith, so we like wise got to do the same thing when it comes to the gospel.
