Follow the Footsteps of Joshua

There is a shift in the apostolic movement today, a transition that can be likened to the shift that took place in the Old Testament when Joshua had received the mantle after Moses.

The Moses Generation never made it to the Promised Land.

The Joshua Generation, however, made it victoriously, and the following generations as well. Read the closing words of the Book of Joshua:

«Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the work that the Lord did for Israel» (Joshua 24:31).

The mandate to Joshua in the beginning of the Book was strong and wide, but he set about doing what the Lord commanded:

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' assistant, “Moses my servant is dead. Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, into the land that I am giving to them, to the people of Israel. Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun shall be your territory. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall cause this people to inherit the land that I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous, being careful to do according to all the law that Moses my servant commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may have good success wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:1-9).

We live in perilous times, and many apostles and prophets choose the easy path.

But let us follow in the footsteps of Joshua and the people who followed him.
