Joshua 11

October 28, 2018

  1. No matter what lies behind, remember to PRESS FORWARD for the next victory!

    Joshua 11 - “After conquering the kingdoms in the south, Joshua and the Israelites press on to attack the kingdoms in the north.”

    Joshua 11:1-4 - “The word goes out to all the kings of the north who prepare to attack Israel. They came out with all their troops and a large number of chariots - a huge army, as numerous as the sand on the seashore,”

    Joshua 11:6 - “The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Do not be afraid of them, because by this time tomorrow I will hand all of them, slain, over to Israel.’”

    Philippians 3:13-14 - “…forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

  2. Don’t wait to be attacked; instead MOVE BOLDLY on the offensive to claim ground for Christ!

    Joshua 11:7-8 - “So Joshua and his whole army came against them suddenly at the Waters of Merom and attached them, and the Lord gave them into the hand of Israel.”

    Joshua 11:12 - “Joshua took all these royal cities and their kings and put them to the sword. He totally destroyed them, as Moses the servant of the Lord had commanded.”

  3. Don’t stop until the job is done and the victory is COMPLETE!

    Joshua 11:15 - “As the Lord commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua, and Joshua did it; he left nothing undone of all that the Lord commanded Moses.”

    Joshua 11:23 - “So Joshua took the entire land, just as the Lord had directed Moses, and he gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their tribal divisions.”

    Joshua 11:23 - “Then the land had rest form war.”

    James 1:12 - “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who Love him.”

    2 Timothy 4:7 - “I have fought a good fight; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith.”

    Matthew 25:23 - “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’”
