Alexa: Hello there, Happy New Year. We are into the starting of the new year. I believe You would already have goals for this year. So I pray to God, May God fulfil all your needs and help you to achieve your goals.
This week, we are going to listen about Moses and how Moses trained Joshua to take up his position.
Moses: I am now a hundred and twenty years old and I am no longer able to lead you. The Lord has said to me, `You shall not cross the Jordan.` The Lord your God himself will cross over ahead of you.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Alexa: Then Moses summoned Joshua and said to him in the presence of all Israel,
Moses: Be strong and courageous, for you must go with this people into the land that the Lord swore to their ancestors to give them, and you must divide it among them as their inheritance. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged
Alexa: So Moses wrote down this law and gave it to the Levitical priests, who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and to all the elders of Israel.
Look at the Moses leadership...
As a leader, Moses trained Joshua and also wrote all the laws for whole Israel community to read and follow. Then Moses commanded them.
Moses: listen and learn to fear the Lord your God and follow carefully all the words of this law. Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the Lord your God.
Alexa: After Moses taught laws to Israel People. The Lord said to Moses, Lord: Now the day of your death is near. Call Joshua and present yourselves at the tent of meeting, where I will commission him.
Alexa: Then Lord commissioned Joshua in the tent and also predicts about Israel Peoples rebellion. So Moses wrote the song about Israel's Rebellion and sang in front of Israel People for them to remember what lord has predicted. Also, Moses blesses all Israel people by tribes.
Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. Then the Lord said to him,
Lord: This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, `I will give it to your descendants.` I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.”
After that, Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, `yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone`. The Israelites grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.
See, How greatly Moses lead the Israel People. Our great God, lead Moses from the day of born till his last life.
As we read in the Bible, God already made the plan before we born. So God has a great plan about you. Be Submissive to our God for him to work and do a miracle in our Life.
Hope you enjoyed the Story. I will come up with another series about Joshua in the next episode. Until then Goodbye.
