Good Bibles tonight he turned to the book of Joshua please the book of Joshua, we're going to do the first step. Thank you, Rhoda. Thank you, Dorothy. In this advanced clap all week long, we've been dealing with the operation of the word of knowledge and the word of wisdom. And we have just read the Word of God and allowed the Word of God to speak to what to teach us how these manifestations operated, and how they continue to operate in the lives of men and women. Hear in the book of Joshua, tonight, in the first chapter, we have a tremendous record record that I felt would really bless not only the people in the class, but all of our people who are gathered here for this teaching session at the way biblical Research Center tonight. In order to get to the great impact of this wonderful chapter, you've got to remind yourself that it was Moses, who had led that stubborn bunk RV. And as he got into the wilderness with them, all they ever did to Moses was complete. Those people never appreciated Moses at all. The only time they appreciated him was when they were starving to death or something else. And Moses brought them food. But the greatness with which Moses lived and led them, they really never appreciated. And so they were constantly complaining. When they didn't have water. They complained when they didn't have food, they can play the rights complain. And time and time again, you're reading the Old Testament, or somebody said, Well, why didn't you let us back in Egypt? Why did you take us out of Egypt and get us out here in this godforsaken wilderness? You promised us the promised land, but somehow or other We're never getting there? Why not go back into Egypt? And it was this wonderful man of God, Ruth was able to stand people like that. And it was he of whom the Scripture said that God made no his ways unto Moses, his act unto the children of Israel. God never told the children of Israel, the whys and the wherefores of what he did. He only told Moses, the whys and the wherefores, but to the children of Israel, they ever got to see where his tremendous versus script. Now this wonderful man of God, Moses, had put up with these children of Israel for many, many years. And then one day, this wonderful leader, this wonderful man of God, dot How would you like to have stepped into the shoes of this man most? To leave the children of Israel? I would you like to have been called right at that crucial hour, to take the place of a man who for 30 years almost had led these children day after day, week after week, month after month, and carried them through in spite of themselves many times. And yet, that's the record of just Joshua was the man who replaced Moses. And in the first verse of this first chapter, there are these tremendous words that really make any when you read them in the original text. Now, after the death of Moses, that sermon alone, it came to pass that the Lord, make unto Joshua, the son of new Moses as minister saying, Moses, my servant, is dead. Those are the words that just read the heart of a man when he understand that this wonderful leader had passed away. This man unto whom God told his way, the lies and the landfill, when to whom he explained the little details that this wonderful man and God had passed away those words, Moses, mice, urban is dead. You cannot English put the emphasis where God put it in his words, it reads in English, the best I can read, it is Moses, my servant is.
Well, if Moses is up in heaven, he's not dead. The Bible says he's loved. What a day that was in the history of Israel when Moses died,
and God had to call another man to take his place. And you could have had a general election. You could have had a democratic vote. You could never have gotten Joshua elected. Because first of all, he would not have run as a candidate. And secondly, he was not the likely man that you would have nominated for the job. But the scripture never had a book like that. God called me. God said Joshua. I liked you And I want you to fill somebody's shoes, because Moses, nice, urban is what? People, these words should ring in our hearts tonight, because you are not a servant. You are a son of God. Moses, unto whom God may do his ways, at best was only a urban. That's tremendous. Hardly ever does this really gel in the heart life of a person, because we just take it so nonchalantly. But Moses was a servant. Look what a servant did. He was a servant of God. Look how wonderfully God treated him. I wonderfully he wants before that. Certainly you and I, as sons of God, do not have less than a servant. Right? Moses was a servant, in and horizontal in a vertical way, and a servant horizontally. In other words, Moses was a servant to God, in a perpendicular way, this way, up and down, and he was a servant to Israel on an horizontal plane. You and I are sons of God, in a vertical relationship with Him. God is our Father, we are His children, we are his son. But we are servants, to our fellow men, on and horizontal, please, Moses, my servant, is dead. Now therefore, arise, now therefore arise. Now who feel like getting up, when Moses, the great man of God was dead. You would sit, you would think that they would sit for days and months, just to go over the memory of this wonderful man of God. And they would have had God not spoken by revelation word, another word of wisdom, and said to Joshua, don't sit around, twiddling your fingers. Don't stay around any longer. Because Moses, my sermon is dead, he can no longer lead God's people. Somebody else has to lead God's people and Joshua, I've chosen you to lead. Therefore, he said, Arise, get up. And he reminds me the Scripture in the New Testament, where it says forgetting those things which are behind and pressing on toward the mark for the high calling. It reminds me of that. Airport arrived. Go over the Jordan, Darwin, all this people onto the land, which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. Verse three, every place that's a third of your foot. Yeah, future tense, tread upon that have I have spent that have I already given unto you, as I said, under oath, from the wilderness, and this Lebanon, even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittite, and unto the great seeds or the going down to the sun, job be your hope. There shall not any man be able to stand before the all the days of my life. As I was with Moses, oh, I will be with thee. I will not fail me nor forsake. That verse three is a tremendous song, spiritually speaking, what a tremendous impact this must have made on the life of that do leader for Israel. When God said to him, Moses, my servant is dead. Now Joshua arrived, get going, every place that the soul of your foot shall tread upon. I have a past tense already given unto you. And he has never crossed the Jordan yet. He they're still sitting on the other side of the Jordan. And God said to Joshua, every place that your foot shall tread upon in the future. I have already now given to you that remembrance of God puts into the past tense. What is still future of God puts that in the past, which is still coming tomorrow. Are you he does the same thing. Hundreds of places in the church epistles he does just that where he puts in the past tense that would just to future points. Every place at the store to your foot gotcha shall tread upon. I've already given it to you, I've already given it to you. And if God gives something he isn't an Indian giver, American Indian, better keep my keep my Indian straight. I thought of that real quickly, so I would get in trouble.
God does not promise something and then become unfaithful and negligent in fulfilling that promise. Here, they had waited for 40 years to get into that promised land. And that morning, God said, boo, boo, boo Joshua. At every place, when you cross the Jordan, every place that your foots going to tread upon, I've already given it to you. Well, suppose he treaded around place. wouldn't make any difference where he would tread God had already won. The reason I'm thinking at treading the wrong place, because I'm thinking of chapter six, for instance, in Joshua, where they marched around the wrong place, they marched around a city called Jericho. Remember, that was the wrong place as far as the world was concerned, but not as far as God was concerned. Or he had said, every place at the sole of your foot shall tread upon, I've already won. That's why the laws of Jericho had to come down because all hell couldn't keep up. Or God had made a promise. And God promised our gay men are that what he has promised, he's not only able but willing to do that with to perform right. And so when Joshua and his boys marched around the walls of the city of Jericho, they had to come down, because every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, I have already watched, all he had to do is run. You know, just put his tootsies down wherever he stepped. wherever he went. God had already given it to me. What a tremendous thing. And why sit here until we die? Remember, if he's already given us these precious promises that he's worth, if he has policies, breakthroughs that are given to the church, then why not arise? Why not? Why not just let it ever best let it go with the greatest enthusiasm that you have within yourself and make it a living reality? For God has already done what he's promised in his words.
He said in verse five, there shall not any man be able to stand before the the days of by what that means that there wasn't anyone who was any bigger than just for God in Joshua made a majority. And what God had said to Joshua, he was going to carry out and he said to Joshua, no man shall be able to stand before the the days of daylight. What a tremendous comfort that revelation must have been to the soul of this young man, who was to step in the shoes of the Great Leader Moses. And not only did he tell him this, but he also said, as I was with Moses, oh, I will be with thee. As he had been with Moses, he promised Joshua he would be with him. He would stand with he giving revelation need happy to walk and understand that the handle the people of God is real. I will not fail the nor forsake. I want to curry no young man could have stepped into the shoes of Moses without revelation without the word of knowledge and the word of wisdom. They'd have been absolute flop, later failed the first day. They'd have failed even before it started. Because believe God's people, you have to have word of knowledge and word of wisdom. And that applies today. No man can lead God's people today. Unless he's operating more than knowledge and word of wisdom. He has to have a connection with God. God has to talk to that man. God has to speak to him or he could never lead God's people. That to Him in verse six, have a real Lang faith and be discouraged every day. The downcast, melancholic, fearful, you negative in verse 16, said, Be strong, be strong. Be strong, and a good curry. Be strong and a good curry. I'm kidding. You. Be strong and have good courage when just the greatest leader of all time is done. Because of the revelation God give of the word of knowledge and the word of wisdom. As I was with Moses, oh, I'll be with you. No man shall be able to stand against you Arise, go over to Jordan, every place you set your foot on, already given it to you. You see those words of knowledge that were the wisdom, how they are intertwined. And this is why he could be strong, not in himself as far as his physical being is concerned, because Joshua loved Moses. And he must have cried, he must have been deeply hurt when Moses passed away. But because of the revelation to him, he was able to be strong. He was strong on the Word of God on the revelation. And he had the greatness of God's courage within him because of that tremendous revelation. Or under this, people shut down, divide this morning. And in verse seven, he reiterated for him, God for the second time says to him, only these are strong, and very courageous. And people, it takes courage today to teach God's words. It takes courage to stand on God's words, it takes courage to change your life. If you've been wronged at places and you see greater truth, it takes courage to admit that you were wrong at those places, and to start living a different way, and a different manner in your life. It takes courage, hurry. And he said to him, be very courageous. Dom as observed to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded the turn not from it to the right hand, or to the left. Isn't that wonderful? The law was God's word to Joshua, right. And God said to Joshua, don't to give one iota on it. As I was with Moses, I'll be with you. And Moses read on the rider. Moses gave them the word of God, when they didn't like it. You know what he gave him the Word of God. And they liked it, he still gave them the word of God didn't make any difference whether they liked it, or whether they didn't like it, he always gave them God's word. So God said to Joshua, don't you turn to the right or to the left, you stay put on my word right down the middle. Well, the moment you turn to the right or the left, you're playing in somebody else's League, not God. And he said, be very courageous. And stay put, don't turn to the right or to the left. And if you'll stay on my word, Dom as prosper that DOM is custom. The word prosper here is not dollars and cents. It is in the sense that you will do wisely,
that you'll be you know, lead God's people with intelligence. Wisely, that's the word prep. You never get that from King James, I got to someplace else from the text. Tremendous. Because has nothing to do with dollars and cents. But as he did not turn to the right or to the left and stayed put on God's word. Then he could lead God's people wisely, that thou may have do wisely. Whether soever thou ghost, verse eight, this book of the law, shall not depart out of thy mouth, is not something to always speak God's word, shall not be poured out of thy mouth, the law, the book of the law, he said, You don't let God's word get away from you. Nothing but God's word. Do not turn to the right or the left, not the book of the land, never depart out of your mouth, always speak the word of God. Thou shalt meditate there in day or night. I may have the bird to do according to us, that is what's written there. For them, then when you stay put on the Word of God, and you speak the word of God, then then thou shalt make thy way prosperous. Realize Lee, and then thou shalt have good success, in the moving of the things of God, in your life. And among God, people. Have not I, verse nine, nine commodity, be strong, and have good luck. For the third time, in nine verses, God says, The Joshua after Moses is dead, be strong and up good. And then time and time again, as you operate manifestations of the Spirit, in a believers meeting, you will hear the same thing coming up and up and up and up again. Why? Because it is God's edification that God's people to exhorting them and comforting them in a situation in which they are surrounded or engaged. It is God's message. It isn't that Josh We're putting here it is that Joshua needed this word from God. He needed this word from God so that he could leave God deeper wisely. And so God said to him for the third time, be strong, and a good prairie. Don't get discouraged. Just have great courage. Do not get down hard. Do not be melancholy. Don't mope around. Just be strong on God's word, and be very courageous in the presentation of that word. Be not afraid. These will be die dismayed. Know the Lord died, God is with the weather soever thou go? Isn't that a wonderful record? To know that the Lord your God is with you wherever you go, Oh, that must have thrilled. Oh, that must have thrilled the heart of Joshua that day, when he heard this message from God. When God said to him, Be strong, be courageous as I was with Moses, I'll be with you. And don't get all shook on this thing. You know why he says Hi, Bob, will be with you, wherever you go. Nobody went to Jericho who went along? Oh, sure. When he went down the street, to buy his groceries at the supermarket. Who was there? God. This is Old Testament. And Joshua and Moses were only servants of God. You are born again of God's Spirit, sons of God. And the word says it's Christ in you the hope of glory. So when you go into your shop, and factory, out on the farm, when you go to your places of business, when you're in the kitchen, when you're in the living room, when you're driving in the automobile this week, where is your God? You want a vacation? You have to pray, Lord, please ride with me in the automobile.
Nope, you can't help but have him to ride along. He's in you. Rice is in you the hope of glory. And with Christ in you, wherever you go, he's with you. The Joshua bow who was a servant, God had to give this promise that I was I was with Moses, so happy with you. Because God was not born in them in Christ for that time, it was not available. But since the day of Pentecost, men and women can be born again a God's Spirit. And when we're born again of God's Spirit, it is Christ in you. And He will never leave you or forsake you. He is pushing on hands or feet or even breathing. And so even as God declared to Joshua, whether it's all good, I'll be with you. God is with you wherever you go. This is why that we can go into our shops and factories and businesses, to our high schools, colleges, universities, wherever we go this week, whatever we do, God is there with people and if God's with us. The Scripture says in Romans, we are more than what isn't that in Romans eight. Take a look at it a moment. What a message that is to the hearts of God's people in the churches of the world today. If only they could hear this message and open their ears and believe the greatness of God's wonderful match with words. That verse Okay, verse 31, what shall we then say? These things? If God be who can they want? Amen? You see what I mean? When I say time and time again, that you and God make on the journey. Josh, when God made a majority, Moses and God made a majority, I could read you section from the Old Testament where everybody had turned against Moses and against God except Moses, and Moses, those to God and He says, Look, I know you could chop them to smithereens. You could put them through the meat grinder. I know that Lord, But Lord, if you want to hurt anybody hurt me. I want to intercede for him. And the good Lord haven't heard Moses prayer. You know why? Because God was with Moses. And when God's with somebody, God listens to that someone when they talk to him. What about him? Some people go through life. They say they're Christian. They're born again a God Spirit, but they've never had a prayer. And why? Because they don't know the revelation of God's Word of God with them. And if God's willing, you can talk to him. And God hears and then three, sure God before who can be against us? He that spared not his own son, verse 32, but delivered Him up for us all. Our shall he not with him also, reluctantly, as a template? No, oh, shall he also freely, freely give us thing? Who shall I anything to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justified, who is either condemning. It is Christ to die, yay, rather that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession? Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? When God said to Moses, I'll be with you. One thing he said to Joshua be with you Rather be with Moses and with luck. And then Who shall separate Moses from the love of God? Who shall separate Joshua from the love of God wants God said he will. Nothing could separate them right? Unless you're born again a God, Who shall separate us from the love of God isn't a devil he's teaching where people sell a time Savior Christian, you better watch out because you're separate yourself and God separates himself. The Word of God says, nothing can separate us from the love. We shall separate us from the love of Christ. God, tribulation, or distress, or persecution? or famine, or nakedness? Or peril. And wars separate us from the love of Christ. Nope. Tribulation. fights among neighbors. Nope. Nope. Not those who have gone again and no God's word nothing can separate them from the love of Christ. I was speaking to my friend Dr. Williams, we had an opportunity in the last two days to spend more time together. We have prepped for summer, leave, we've taken more time. This afternoon, we've got out on the lawn for an hour or two and just talked about the greatness of the ministry and the things in Indian the United States. We've talked about yesterday, I think it was that even among nations, where government required that our boys fight and die for our nation, there should still not be among God's people, any animosity in their hearts for the people of that nation. Our boys in the United States cannot help what they are called upon to do because they're citizens of the United States. And being citizen somebody in higher authority. And they have to be obedient to it, according to the laws of our land. But does that mean that I have to hate Christians of another land, even if our nation is engaged in war with another nation, this does not mean that I have to dislike the Christian. And this is something you better remember. Because God's people in every nation, have the same word of God that you and I have. And if they love the Lord Jesus Christ, you and I must love those people, in spite of what may be going on, in a national or international relationship, as far as politics and government are concerned, they're Christians have to learn to love one another in spite of everything that goes on in the world. This is why it says in verse 36. nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord, not trim and nothing can separate us because we are His children. Nothing could separate Josh when God for God said, I'll be with you, Joshua. As I was with Moses, the lobby with you. Only be strong and a good curry. Be strong, and very courageous. Be strong and a But current, her not to the right or to the left, speak always my word. And with her soever outdoors, I will go with you. What a tremendous message to the heart of Joshua, that word of knowledge not word of wisdom has to be. And what a tremendous message to the hearts of our young people in here tonight. Our adults are in here tonight, to know that if you're a Christian, born again, a God Spirit, filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. It is Christ with you wherever you go. And as you go out of this auditorium tonight, as you go first, back to your homes and your factories wherever you go tomorrow. Always remember this week, try it out God's will. When you wake up tomorrow morning, say, Well, God's with me this morning. Heist is with he'll go with me all day long. So the first opportunity that presents itself, you know what you do with it? You get real negative? No, you don't. The first opportunity that presents itself, you walk up to it, and you simply say, Well, look here opportunity. I have Christ in me what you got to know about it. And you know, my dad would just take her down, we were down like the one fell out of the way. Why not? But we have become so acclimatized to living in an environment of negatives and defeats. That instead of looking at the greatness and the integrity of God's word, and working on it, the first time we're confronted with an opportunity like that, we look at the greatness of the opportunity and fate in heart at the greatness of God's Word. We must build this word within us and believe God's words. And as we walk up to those opportunities, you just say in the name of Jesus Christ, you'll have to go because God is with whether soever I go, God is
evil. What a tremendous message. This is to the church today. You know, if people could just once again know that it's God, who is with that God will protect them God will keep the psalmist of all the Lord is my shepherd. I shall just walk, walk, walk, walk one. Oh, no, The Lord is my shepherd. I shall not one.
He leads me in green pastures or something. You know what a green pasture is? Not this burned out brown stuff we go. Right? Green Pastures, the best grass, the best food. That's where our God leaves us. At some. Why, because he's with a God never meant for his children to eat brown stubble and grass. You know, that? He wishes? That's right. He leads us into green pastures. And yet, how many times have you not seen men and women all over the Christian world, who are deeply in one deeply in need. And yet, even to the servants of the Old Testament, God said that He was their Lord. He was their shepherd, and that they would never want how much more to us a son as he supplied all of our need according to His riches in what goes tremendously romanticism. Sure, he leads us not only in the green pastures, but besides Stillwater, like we become so acclimatized to the humdrum and noise of the world, that if we don't get into trouble tomorrow, we think there's something wrong. We think that if somebody just doesn't throw the book at us tomorrow something no matter you know, you can become so acclimatized to noise that if you get to a quiet place, it disturbs you. We had a person like that or two years ago, came from a big city and lived right next to a railroad track on one side and the main highway on the other side of the house just sandwiched in between if the train when the trains were going to big noises of the buses and all of those big diesel's going right by and she came over here and she couldn't sleep at all. It was just too quiet for kept her awake all night. We see you become so acclimatized to know that you have steeled yourself on the inside that your nerves are so steals that somehow or other when he leaves us beside still waters. When I say that I've been this way. I have said to myself Oh, this is too good to be true. Have you ever said that to yourself? This is just too good. It just can't last. Less God the moment I say that I'm starting to build, build the road that makes it impossible for it to last. But he's word said he lead us beside still wanted. Isn't this a day and an hour when we God's people need to be led by still. And it is he who continues to restore our souls. It is He will make it me to lie down in green pastures. It is he who needed me. It is he who restored my soul or whose namesake, not mine. And even though we'd walk through the valley of the shadow of death we still at that moment what there are no left. Right? Fear No Evil. What a tremendous thing. A person who really knows that the Lord is a shepherd that the Lord has really saved him that the Lord is closer than hands or feet, even though he walked right through them next to that very thing itself. Right like walking into the mouth of the lion, he still would have no cause for that man, that death would simply be a show. We were talking today about the greatness of the ministry God is set among us and how this ministry must live in India, how it must live did these our United States. And we were saying at best all they could do to us would be to kill us. They can't stop God's word as long as there's one person juggling. And if we had to go through the very shadows of death itself, with the greatness of God's word, we just absolutely would not be able This is a great day and a great hour and a great time. Because when you look around you in a census world, you sometimes wonder why Why am I here? Why should I be doing what I'm doing? Why is this the time for me to be born?
Why wasn't I born 100 years ago? Why didn't dad wait another 15 years? I don't know. But you're here now and he's tremendous. But there's never been a time in the history of civilization that has been any more important than this particular time because of the Lord sooner. Because of the greatness of the hour in which women even though we'd walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil or die like my Ron want to lean on that right my staff? Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for a tremendous message addressed to service some we had son certainly do not have less right. Remember that? 100 and 21st song? I think it is. The King James says I will lift up my eyes onto the hills. From whence cometh my help? Whoever heard such baloney? That's right. Your help doesn't come from will will help. Your help and mine doesn't come from Mount Nebo you're helping mine doesn't come from my area. Whatever that thing is. It doesn't come from the Rocky Mountains. Right? I never lift my eyes to the hill. I've got something a lot better now. The original text has it. Shall I lift up my eyes to the hill that's the original text. King James says I will. The original text is shy. You know why? Because on the Hill doctor is where the pagans built their temples. That's where they raised their their their images for idol worship. So that people walking down the road could look up and see the idol. They still do it all over the world today put their idols, including their churches on hill so that everybody can see them. And that's what the Prophet was talking about. Shanghai God sermon, lift up mine eyes unto those hills, where those pagan temples are, where those devotees, gods and idols are, shall I lift up my eyes to those idols? God for me, I lift up my eyes into the hill, though never from whence cometh my help. I have doesn't come from the hills. I have doesn't come from the pagan temples and where the idols are set. I have come from the Lord who made heaven on earth. Oh, right man in a man. What a tremendous thing, right? Shoot you and I don't look at the hill. We don't look at the temples they build up there. We don't look at the church people's up there. They don't help anybody. All right, help kind of the Lord who made heaven and earth, and that's a lot better than that. And that thing fills up and soul and a woman saw when you understand the word I will not lift up my eyes into the hills on I lift up my eyes. To him, amaze, I haven't been there.
