Joshua - An Outline
We are told that Joshua comes to Mount Ebal and the law of God is read to them [See Joshua 8:31-35].
Thank God for such a man as Joshua. That is the kind of men and women we want to strive to be, today. For then, we will have 'good success'. When we disregard, or re-interpret the Bible, to fit our times, instead of allowing the Word of God to shape and correct, to discipline and reprove us, so that we do not have anything of God left now, we are the 'loosers of good for doctrine and reproof'.[Search the Holy Bible on the topic of 'scoffers'], Instead, we must be like Joshua who just gave them the whole Word; it was all read.
And now he is ready to move on. The law had been read; they had worshiped their God; and, undoubtedly, the nations all through that land heard of that solemn assembly on those two mountain sides, and that the law of God had been read. [We shall see this as we move on.] Now they are ready to move on again; and some startling news reaches Joshua that there is a confederacy formed, and instead of meeting one king at a time he is to meet five of the leading kings of the country; and they were coming from the mountains and from the valleys with their giants, to overwhelm him.
I see the old warrior; he doesn't tremble at all; he had gotten the Word of God: "Joshua, be of good courage, no man shall be able to stand up before thee all.the days of thy life;" [Joshua Chapter 1[ and he routed the armies of the kings; and the day was not quite long enough, so he commanded the sun and moon to stand still and had two days in one, and there was none of them left together. [Joshua Chapter 10] He found those five kings hid away in a cave. He overcame thirty-one kings and killed them. He overcame them by faith.
Some men say, "What right had he to go over and take that land?" The Word of God tells us. (See Deuteronomy 9: 4-6.) God didn't want to have them go in on account of their self righteousness; God hates that, but it was on account of the wickedness of the inhabitants. Joshua then divides up the land among them, taking the poorest part for himself, so that he might be near the ark, near Shiloh.
There comes out another trait of his character. There he died. He lived to the ripe age of 110; and all these years not one solitary man was able to stand before him, just as the Lord had promised in Chapter 1.
See the contrast between his dying testimony and that of Jacob down in Egypt! "Few and evil have been my days"—had a pretty stormy voyage. [Genesis 47:9[ There is a man that walked by sight. Now look, and see this old warrior going to rest. He is not going to die like an infidel, Nor an atheist. He knows in whom he believes, and he sent for all Israel; and they gathered at Shiloh, to hear the old prophet and patriarch and that mighty man of God speak. What does he say? What is his dying testimony? How we linger about to catch what our dying friends say; how anxious we are to catch their last words and utterances. Now what are the last words of this man, who has tried God and proved him, and who knew God? This is it: "Behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth; and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed."[Joshua 23:14[ God has kept his word, fulfilled his promise, made his word good: "not one thing hath failed." What a glorious dying testimony! What a beautiful sunset! Look at the old warrior sinking away, like the sun going down on a summer evening full of beauty. There the old man is dying, and is leaving that testimony behind him. It has lived all these years. How we like to go back to it! Moses laid away in the mountains by God; Aaron also buried in the mountains by God; and Miriam, the sister of Aaron, had died in a foreign land; and now in sight of the celestial city which Abraham caught sight of, this is Joshua's dying testimony: 'And, behold, this day I am going the way of all the earth; and ye know in all your hearts and in all your souls, that not one thing hath failed of all the good things which the Lord your God spake concerning you.'
My friends, let us take God at his word; let us try his word and prove him, and we will find that God is true. That is why I always say, 'search the Holy Bible for yourselves'. [Acts 17:11] Do not ever allow anyone trying to destroy our confidence in the Word of God, by telling us that God does not keep his word. They are trying to deceive us. It simply is not true. Any man that has tried these promises has found them to be "yea and nay;" he has found them to be true. Let us pray to the God of Joshua.
Thank you for continuing to study with me and Jesus, and may the eyes of your understanding continually be opened wider and wider, in the Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. [Ephesians 1:18] Amen. Amen.
