Word for the Month...JANUARY 2014

"...Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before"   (Joshua 3:4 nkjv )

For the Israelites crossing the Jordan meant NO TURNING BACK...

This was a ...[1] Spiritual

                        [2] Psychological

as well as a ...       [3] Physical

entrance into the land  and it heralded it's Occupation ..

.in fulfilment of The Promise of God , ...

by The Power of God , ...

under the leadership of Joshua.

UNLIKE MEN...GOD ALWAYS KEEPS HIS PROMISES AND WE NEED TO WALK BY FAITH IN REMEMBRANCE OF THAT FACT.

The Ark was a Visible Symbol of God's  Presence ...and  a further reminder that this was a DIVINE not a human enterprise.

The Ark represented JESUS ...our Forerunner    Who Has gone before us into Glory...

What God Accomplished at the Red Sea crossing...He would Accomplish again at the river Jordan , though it was in flood...in the worst of possible cirumstances !!!

AND HE WILL DO IT FOR YOU !!!

Why?...because The Lord does not change...[Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8]

There were 7 tribes of pagans defeated...= Perfect Victory

As we Partner with God ...by faith...we also will see Perfect Victory ...in our lives, relationships, business, society and nation.  Because an act of faith, in obedience to His Will, causes the 'mountain' to be moved !!!...

even if ...YOU "have not passed this way before".

May The Lord Bless you.
