THE ORIGIN STORY OF JESUS
Part 26: A Colossal Mistake
The first task in the invasion of the Promised Land
was getting the entire camp across the Jordan River when the water
levels were at their highest after the spring rains. It required
faith on the part of the priests carrying the Ark of the Covenant to
step into the water before they saw power of God. The second task
was circumcising all the men to test the faith of the Israelites in
enemy territory. The third assignment involved circling Jericho
silently for seven days before God flattened the legendary walls.
All these tasks required faith and proved their obedience to the
Lord. The first blunder occurred when Achan took plunder from
Jericho and the entire camp was cursed because of his greed. A
little while later, Joshua and the rest of the camp were taken in by
the deception of the men from Gibeon when they made a peace treaty
with a faction of the Canaanites. The Israelites won the battles
against Jericho and Ai, but they would ultimately lose the war
because of Lucifer’s clever pitfalls.
