    Was Joshua a slave in Egypt or was he born free, touched by Mose hand.

    See post below from Spencer that says that Joshua was 40 when he was sent to spy out the land. This was in the first few years of travel. The Israelites wandered for 40 years after that. So, Yes, Joshua was a slave in Egypt.

    Thank you, Rick
  • GiGi - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Hi again,

    I a quick google, some say that he was 20 yrs, when he left Egypt, others say he was 40 yrs old. I am not aware of a Scripture verse that specifies his age during the wanderings, or when he spied out the land, or led the Israelites across the Jordan river.

    If anyone knows, please, supply a source I can go to to discover more. Thanks.
  • GiGi - in Reply on Joshua 24
    I think that Joshua was a child in Egypt when the Israelites exited that land. You may google your question and get more information. I hope you come back and share what you have found out.

    Hi Sister GiGi.

    perhaps we can draw estimates off of this passage.

    Joshua 14:7. Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh-barnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart.

    Thanks for finding that verse, Spencer. Now the matter is settled. I am glad to know this.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Joshua 24
    You're welcome.

    God bless.
  • GiGi - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Great! So good to know. So Joshua was almost 40 when they left Egypt. I am glad you found this. Thanks!

  • I am the Son of God on Joshua 24
    Simon, Simon, why do ye yet persecute me? Seeing (and hearing,) that GOD, my Father, now makest me to be known unto you, why are ye yet walking with an evil conscience? Did I not, by my Father, tell you that thy way would be ever the more troubled till ye turned from thine own ways and turned to GOD my Father by receiving the Son, even the Christ child Michael Isaac, who shall be called JESUS? Many souls of the Gentiles who know not GOD are redeemed. Seeing that you do know, how are you profited in the flesh while the dead use your soul as his shield, that he may prolong his days? See ye not that his envying and hatred toward you is turned round about as your envying and hatred toward me? Nevertheless, the set time is come that all judgment must needs be executed: for this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal MUST put on immortality. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. The Rock therefore, yea, even the chief cornerstone himself, is a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God. Choose you this day whom ye will serve. Be no more slothful, be no sluggard, but turn yourselves and repent of your sins. Do good and live ye.
  • Danae on Joshua 24
    I will always serve the lord! praise god almighty!
  • KENN on Joshua 24:15
    I serve a living God. Amen!
  • WalterandDeborah Preston on Joshua 24
    Like Joshua, As far as me and my house we will serve The LORD.
  • Derek on Joshua 24
    Joshua havin to warn the people of God to not serve no other gods stay in the right way to remind them was an good indication . And still is relevant today for many today has gone astray from God.
  • Give from the Heart. on Joshua 24

  • JW Worcester on Joshua 24
    Joshua 24:15 key phrase "as for me and my house"! How many homes are guided by this principle in current materialistic American society? Where are the men who will trust in God to do the impossible and give no leeway to corrupting influences? America will be lost if we no longer stand on our nations founding principles and depend on "societal standards" rather than the word of God!
  • Bren - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Right. We need to get back to God's standard of living. Amen.
  • Rupthurn on Joshua 24
    I've been having this question for a long time now. Was there sweets, chocolate, and treats back then? If not, does that mean everybody was thin until they were added into the universe? Also, is transgendering against the bible?
  • Bren - in Reply on Joshua 24
    God created male and female.... there are some with birth defects, that can't help it. But that is it. God is against being gay and lesbian, as it is against the very nature of what he created male and female for. The Bible plainly states this, and God gives those "unnatural" people over to a reprobate mind...meaning that they will not learn the right way.

    1 Samuel 8:13 View whole chapter See verse in context And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Joshua 24
    transgender is when a man is born with female organs or a woman with a male organ. I think it is just a freak of nature.
  • Adam - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Actually you might be thinking hermaphrodite. Trans is when someone willfully attempts to change to another gender and may involve surgery. It's evil and immoral to desecrate your body made in God's image and committing homosexual acts is a sin.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Yes. 1 Samuel 8:13 View whole chapter See verse in context And he will take your daughters to be confectionaries, and to be cooks, and to be bakers. confectionaries are cakes cookie etc.

    Rupthurn both responses that Ruben shared are True. The Sugarcane is good and Sugar and Honey are very Simular Nutritionally but God warns that too much Honey will make us sick Prov25:16 so although good both are to be eaten in Moderation. Will eating Sugar or any food Seperate us from God Rom14 but Sin will and we do not call Good what God calls Evil or Evil what He calls Good. Blessings- Anne.
  • Ruben Hartness - in Reply on Joshua 24
    In Gen2:29-31. All was good that God made to be received and man had only to eat of it. Man learned to make meals, I suppose, therefor recipes must have come into being.
  • Ruben Hartness - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Repthurn-I will answer your last question bow and review and answer your 1st question later. Lev 20:13-our term is homosexual. Transgender will promote this act. Due 22:5 translates to the sexual act-man doesn't tack the act of a woman and a woman doesn't take the act of a man. It is an abomination disgusting to God. True repentance is up to the JUDGEMENT of God. It is a sin.
  • Isabell Belsar - in Reply on Joshua 24
    Does every one have to accept Jesus to get to heaven?
  • TJ - in Reply on Joshua 24
    John 14:6- Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
