  1. The Lord is keeping TRACK of everyone and everything.

    The Lord keeps track of everything including victories and defeats.

    Joshua 12 - The Lord records the list of 31 defeated kings.

    Genesis 5 - “This is the written account of Adam’s family line.”

    1 Chronicles 9:1 - “All Israel was listed in the genealogies recorded in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.”

    Revelation 20:12 - “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.”

  2. The Lord ALLOCATES the land to the Israelites as their inheritance.

    Psalms 37:9 - “For evildoers will be cut-off. But those who wait for the Lord, they will inherit the land.”

    Joshua 13 - Lays out the specific allocations to the 12 tribes in accordance with prophesy and God’s promises.

    Joshua 13:6-7 - “…Be sure to allocate this land to Israel as an inheritance, as I have instructed you, and divide it as an inheritance among the nine tribes and half of the tribe of Manasseh.”

    Joshua 13:32 - “This is the inheritance Moses had given when he was in the plains of Moab across the Jordan east of Jericho.”

  3. The Lord has a wonderful INHERITANCE for each of us.

    Joshua 13:14 - “But to the tribe of Levi he gave no inheritance, since the food offerings presented to the Lord, the God of Israel, are their inheritance, as he promised them.”

    Joshua 13:33 - “But to the tribe of Levi, Moses, had given no inheritance; the Lord, the God of Israel, is their inheritance, as he promised them.”

    1 Peter 1:4 - “…in his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.”

    Ephesians 1:18 - “I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.”

    Psalm 33:12 - “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.” God has chosen us as his great gift.
