Glad to have you back at Daily Bread to
continue our study of the book of Joshua. Where were we? Well, the
children of Israel had just crossed the Jordan River into the Promised
Land, and we were wondering about those men who were selected (one out of each of
the tribes of Israel), and what they were to do.
The Lord told Joshua to tell
each of them to take a stone out of the midst of the Jordan, where the
priests stood with the ark, and carry them on their shoulder to the
place where they stayed the first night.
Each of the stones
represented a tribe and Joshua explained that it would be a memorial, so
that when their children asked what the stones meant, they shall tell
them the story of when the Lord parted the waters of the Jordan River
for them to cross into the Promised Land. Joshua also set up twelve
stones in the midst of the Jordan where the priests stood with the ark.
Just imagine the dedication
of those priests carrying the ark, that stood in the midst of the
Jordan, holding it until more than 600,000 people crossed the River!

About 40,000 of those were of
the tribes of Reuben, Gad and half the tribe of Manasseh, which were men
prepared for war, who crossed ahead of the children of Israel.
On that day, the people of
Israel respected Joshua as they respected Moses, because the Lord
magnified him in the sight of all Israel.
After all of Israel had
crossed the Jordan entirely, Joshua, at the Lord's command told the
priests who were carrying the ark to come up out of the midst of the
Jordan, and when the soles of their feet were on dry land, the waters of
the Jordan returned to their place.
Guess when this event
happened. The tenth day of the first month, which is also the
celebration of Passover. So, it was 40 years, to the day, that the
children of Israel wandered in the wilderness, from the day they left
the land of Goshen in Egypt, until they crossed the Jordan into the

They camped in Gilgal, in the
east border of Jericho, where Joshua set up the stones that they took
out of the Jordan, and he reminded everyone that when their children ask
what the stones stand for, to tell them the story of how God parted the
Red Sea and the River Jordan for the children of Israel to cross so that
all the people of the Earth would know the might of the Lord and that
they would honor Him forever.
The city of Gilgal is where
the camp of the children of Israel remained for quite a while. Join us
again next time at Daily Bread and we'll follow Joshua and the children of Israel
further into the Promised Land.
