JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STUDY ON JORDAN RIVER BIBLE EVENTS WITH JORDAN RIVER BIBLE MESSAGE
Welcome back to Daily Bread as
we continue our study of the book of Joshua. You can imagine the
delighted anticipation of the children of Israel at this moment in
history ... The Promised Land, at last.
When it was finally time to cross the
Jordan into the Promised Land, the officers of the tribes went through
the camp and told the people, When you see the Levite priests carrying
the ark, follow after it, but stay back about 2000 cubits (about ½ mile)
so that you'll know the way, because you've never been this way before.
JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STORY LESSON WITH JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STORY EXPLANATION
AND JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STORY SUMMARY
Joshua told the people, Ready
yourselves, because tomorrow, the Lord will do miracles for you. he told
the priests to pass over before the people, and the Lord told Joshua,
Today I will honor you in the eyes of all Israel, so they will know that
I am with you, just as I was with Moses. Tell those carrying the ark to
stand still when they come to the rivers edge.
Then Joshua told the people, By this
you will know that the living God is among you, and that He will drive
the heathen out of the land before you. The ark goes ahead of you into
Jordan. Now select one man out of each of the twelve tribes and as soon
as the soles of the feet of the priests carrying the ark stand still in
the waters of Jordan, the water will part.
JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STORY INFORMATION WITH JORDAN RIVER
BIBLE STORY MEANING AND JORDAN RIVER BIBLE STORY DISCUSSION
Just as the Lord parted the waters of
the Red Sea when Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt, He once
again parted the waters of the River Jordan as Joshua led them into the
Promised Land. The priests stood on dry ground in the middle of Jordan
until all the children of Israel passed over. That would pretty much
clinch it for me ... I would be totally convinced that God was with
Joshua, just like Moses, wouldn't you?
Now, you may be wondering, What about
those twelve men selected earlier ... What was that all about? Well,
you'll have to come back for the next chapter and we'll find out
together ... See you next time here at Daily Bread!
