It’s that time of the week again brothers and sisters in Christ! We “get to” be in the presence of our Lord God! We join Pastor David Crespo as we turn to Joshua chapter 3 verse 5 as we continue in our in depth, line by line studies through the book. We sanctify ourselves with God’s word as we prepare to choose the crossover, we choose to overcome the things that are holding us back from living the victorious Christian life! Lets listen!
5 And Joshua said to the people, “Sanctify[a] yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” 6 Then Joshua spoke to the priests, saying, “Take up the ark of the covenant and cross over before the people.”
So they took up the ark of the covenant and went before the people.
7 And the Lord said to Joshua, “This day I will begin to exalt[b] you in the sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. 8 You shall command the priests who bear the ark of the covenant, saying, ‘When you have come to the edge of the water of the Jordan, you shall stand in the Jordan.’ ”
9 So Joshua said to the children of Israel, “Come here, and hear the words of the Lord your God.” 10 And Joshua said, “By this you shall know that the living God is among you, and that He will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Hivites and the Perizzites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Jebusites: 11 Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan.
