    And Pharaoh said to his servants, Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?

    Moses said to Yahweh, 'Behold, you tell me, 'Bring up this people:' and you haven't let me know whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, 'I know you by name, and you have also found favor in my sight.' Now therefore, if I have found favor in your sight, please show me now your ways, that I may...

There Just Isn't 'Enough Time In a Day!

  • Long before King David sat on a throne in Jerusalem and while it was still called Jebus, (land of the Jebusites), and even before the children of Benjamin inherited the land, Joshua the Son of Nun would be engaged in a battle with king Adonizedek, the king of Jerusalem.

     

    Upon hearing that Joshua had 'taken' Ai, utterly destroying it, even as he had done to the fortified city of Jericho ... and knowing that Joshua had made a treaty with the people of Gibeon, a great city filled with valiant warriors ... Adonizedek allied himself to the five kings of the Amorites, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.

    They set up camp before Gibeon and prepared to make war against the Gibeonites. Therefore the Gibeonites sent word to Joshua and plead for his help to aid them in their defense against the kings of the Amorites and 'those that dwell in the mountains'.

    It is here when and where God encourages Joshua and informs him;

    1) Do not be afraid ... 
    2) For I have delivered them into your hand ... 
    3) Not a man of them shall stand before you.

    Joshua was not only a Man of Valor leading Men of Valor into a Battle against great odds ... he was also a Man of Faith. He places his complete Faith in God and immediately leaves the campgrounds in Gilgal with his army - and attacks the Amorites and the Mountain Peoples.

    With such confidence as Faith enjoins ... Israel watches as God Himself 'discomforts the enemy' as they flee from before God's people. They are chased all the way to Bethhoron and to Azekah and to Makkedah.

    As they fled to Bethhoron the Lord cast down hailstones from heaven all the way to Azekah. In fact, more of the enemy died by way of the hailstones than were slain by the sword of the Israelite Army.

    If you noticed there is one 'leg' of the battle to go - and that is from Azekah to Makkedah. And it is here when the Day is NOT Long Enough!

    Recorded also in an ancient book entitled; "Jasher" we discover a moment in time unlike any ever before that day and until the present day in which we live.

    God, Who commanded Joshua not to fear, and Who promised that the enemy would be 'delivered into his hand' also said: "Not a Man of them will 'stand' before you." This was the Battle Plan and there must be a Total Defeat of the Enemy and not a Partial Defeat.

    It is in Joshua's mind to complete the Battle Plan according to the revealed will of God.

    From Azekah he sees the enemy fleeing and knows that night is coming. He cries out (not to God) but to the Sun! Joshua 10:12

    "Sun ... STAND STILL upon Gibeon."
    "Moon ... STAND STILL in the Valley of Ajalon."

    Joshua ALREADY had the promise of God. He understood something that very few people ever grasp. God was in control, at every moment, over all things. And if he (Joshua) were obedient to the revealed will of God ... then all things were subject to Him in God.

    The result of this action was that the Sun Stood Still, and the Moon Stayed ... UNTIL ... the people were avenged upon their enemies. For the Sun Stood Still in the Heavens and did NOT go down for about a Whole Day!

    Verse 14 tells us:

    "And there was no day like that before it or after it, that the LORD listened to the voice of a man ..."

    Amazing ...

    But let me tell you something that is coming in Man's History. There is coming a Time when Two Men will supersede the mighty exploits of Joshua and to whom will be given an ability from Heaven to bring great trouble to the inhabitants of the Earth. Not a single word that comes forth from their mouth, will fall unfulfilled to the Ground. We must be prepared for this Great and Terrible Day.
