In the name of the Father and of the +Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Moses dies. Joshua is raised up to replace Moses. He is given the same authority as Moses, but a specific mission: “Go in, take the land. For by you, Joshua, I will fulfill My promise to Abraham to give the land to His family. And Joshua is given great ad mighty promises. “I will not leave you or forsake you. I will go with you wherever you go. So be strong and courageous. You are My man, to give My people My gifts.” Of course, Joshua is the Lord’s man. His name, which is the Lord’s name (Joshua and Jesus are the same name, and come from the same Hebrew word Jehoshua), means, “the Lord is salvation”. He is the Lord’s man to give salvation. To make good on the Lord’s promises. For the Lord. Is. Salvation. The Lord uses Joshua now to deliver His saving purposes, but one day the Lord Himself would take on flesh, to make good on that name, becoming the salvation of all mankind.
