Joshua Chapter 3 Summary
Chapter 3 of Joshua begins with Joshua ordering the people to move or be ready to move when they see the Ark of the Covenant move by the priests.
God also cues Joshua in that God will magnify him before Israel so that they know God is with him as God was with Moses.
God’s got to get the people to honor and respect his leader. Joshua tells Israel that God will not fail to drive out the people of the land for them.
In addition, God says they should gather and be ready to cross the Jordan following the priests who will bear the Ark of the Covenant before them.
The Jordan is always full (of water), but when the priests walked into it with the Ark of the Covenant, the waters which came down from above stood and rose up like a high heap.
The priests, and the children of Israel walked across on dry ground, just as they did the Red Sea when leaving Egypt.
This was a power showcasing move, much like the Red Sea parting in Moses’ day; this magnified Joshua in the eyes of the people and showed Israel that God was with them going into the Promised Land.
We pray the Father to add blessings to the reading and doing of His Holy Word through His Son Jesus the Messiah. Amen!
