LAST CHAPTER JOSHUA WAS CONQUERING THE SOUTHERN KINGDOMS OF CANAAN AND IN THIS CHAPTER HE'S GO'IN AFTER THE NORTH.
When King Jabin of Hazor (in the North of Canaan) heard about Joshua’s victories, he sent messages to many nearby Kings and asked them to join him in fighting Yisharal. He sent these messages to:
King Jobab of Madon,
The Kings of Shimron and Achshaph,
The Kings in the northern hill-country and in the Jordan River valley south of Lake Chinnereth (later called Lake Galilee),
The Kings in the foothills and in Naphath-Dor to the west.
He also sent messages to the Canaanite Kings in the east and the west, to the Amorite, Hittite, Perizzite, and Jebusite Kings in the hill-country, and to the Hivite kings in the region of Mizpah, near the foot of Mount Hermon.
And all these Kings and their armies went to Merom Pond, where they set up camp, and got ready to fight Yisharal, and it seemed as though there were more soldiers, horses and chariots than there are grains of sand on the seashore.
THIS IS A MILITARY ALLIANCE WITH THE PURPOSE OF ATTACKING YISHARAL BEFORE THEY CAN GAIN A FOOTHOLD IN THE NORTHERN TERRITORY.
IT’S INTERESTING THAT THE CANAANITES ARE THE ONES IGNITING THE BATTLES HERE, BOTH IN THE NORTH AND IN THE SOUTH TOO. THEY HAD HEARD OF YISHARAL’S INTENTIONS, BELIEVED IT THOROUGHLY, AND SO RESPONDED WITH A PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE. THE QUESTION THIS RAISES IS, “WHY DID JOSHUA (OR WAS IT YAHUSHA?) WAIT FOR THE ENEMY TO STRIKE YISHARAL’S FORCES BEFORE THEY CARRIED OUT YAHUSHA’S STANDING ORDER TO TAKE CANAAN FOR ITS INHERITANCE?”
JUST LOOK AT HUMAN BEHAVIOUR. YISHARAL’S ARMY AND LEADERS WERE ALWAYS RELUCTANT. THEY WERE IN NO HURRY TO GO TO WAR AND TAKE ON THE HARDSHIPS, INJURY, AND DEATH. BUT IF YISHARAL HAD SAT ON THEIR ARSES AND DONE NOTHING FOR LONG ENOUGH, THE CANAANITE FORCES WOULD HAVE MORE THOROUGHLY READIED THEMSELVES AND MADE IT ALL THE MORE DIFFICULT TO DRAW THEM OUT OF THEIR STRONGHOLDS; AND YAHUSHA KNEW YISHARAL'S RELUCTANCE FOR CONFLICT ONLY TOO WELL.
FURTHER, IT WAS REALLY IN YISHARAL’S BEST INTEREST THAT THE RESPONSE OF THESE VARIOUS MAJOR CITY-STATES IN CANAAN WAS TO BAND TOGETHER AND LEAVE THE RELATIVE SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THEIR HIGH-WALLED FORTRESSES TO ENGAGE YISHARAL OUT IN THE OPEN. IT KIND OF VALIDATES THE OLD CLICHÉ OF PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YISHARAL TO `KILL MANY BIRDS WITH ONE STONE’.
And Yahusha told Joshua: "Don’t be afraid of them all, for I’ll help you defeat them, and by this time tomorrow they’ll all be annihilated. So when you attack, the first thing you have to do is to cripple (hamstring) their horses, then once the battle is over, burn all their chariots”.THE COMBINED MILITARY FORCES OF ALL THESE NORTHERN CANAANITE KINGS SET OUT TO MEET YISHARAL NOT JUST WITH A SEA OF SOLDIERS, BUT WITH ADVANCED WEAPONRY THAT YISHARAL DID NOT POSSESS: HORSES AND CHARIOTS. YISHARAL HAD FACED SUCH WEAPONS WHEN PHARAOH CAME AFTER THEM AND NOW THEY ARE GOING UP AGAINST THEM AGAIN.
WHEN WE UNDERSTAND THE ENORMITY OF THE ENEMY ARMY HELL-BENT ON TURNING YISHARAL BACK, AND ON THE FRIGHTFUL WEAPONS AT THEIR DISPOSAL, WE CAN CERTAINLY BETTER UNDERSTAND YAHUSHA’S ENCOURAGEMENT TO JOSHUA, “DON’T BE AFRAID…..” ANYONE WITH ANY COMPREHENSION OF WHAT KIND OF FORMIDABLE FOE THE YISHARALITES WERE ABOUT TO FACE WOULD ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FROM A HUMAN, EARTHLY STANDPOINT, FEAR WAS A REASONABLE RESPONSE. BUT WHEN YAHUSHA SAYS THAT THIS ENEMY WILL BE HANDED OVER TO YOU, DEAD, THEN ONE MUST DECIDE WHETHER TO BELIEVE YAHUSHA OR YOUR OWN EYES. YAHUSHA ISSUED JOSHUA THIS ONE, RECORDED INSTRUCTION: “HAMSTRING THEIR HORSES AND BURN THEIR CHARIOTS”.
TO HAMSTRING AN ANIMAL IS TO INJURE IT BY CUTTING THE VITAL TENDON CALLED THE HAMSTRING THAT RUNS THE LENGTH OF THE BACK OF ITS LEG. THERE WAS NO REPAIRING IT, AND THE BEAST WAS TOTALLY DISABLED. BY DISABLING THE HORSES THE CHARIOTS BECAME USELESS, AND THEN BY BURNING THE IDLE CHARIOTS ONE OF THE PRIMARY WEAPONS OF THE ENEMY COULD NOT BE PUT BACK INTO SERVICE. YISHARAL WASTED NO TIME AND SO RATHER THAN WAIT TO BE ATTACKED, THEY SUDDENLY MOVED AGAINST THE NORTHERN COALITION AT THEIR HEADQUARTERS AT MEROM, AND APPARENTLY THE ENEMY WAS A BIT SURPRISED AT SUCH A BOLD TACTIC BY JOSHUA. (HE LOVES HIS SURPRISE PARTIES DOESN'T HE!)
So Joshua and his army made a surprise attack against the enemy camp at Merom Pond and crippled the enemies' horses. And Joshua followed Yahusha’s instructions, and He helped Yisharal defeat the enemy. The Yisharalite army even chased enemy soldiers as far as Misrephoth-Maim to the northwest, the city of Sidon to the north, and Mizpeh Valley to the northeast. None of the enemy soldiers escaped alive and the Yisharalites came back after the battle and burnt all the enemy’s chariots.
THE MAIMING OF THE HORSES AND DESTRUCTION OF THE CHARIOTS WAS NOT ONLY TO DEPRIVE THE ENEMY OF THEIR MAJOR BATTLEFIELD WEAPONS PLATFORM, BUT TO PREVENT YISHARAL’S ARMY FROM DISMISSING HIM AND INSTEAD RELYING ON THEIR OWN POWERFUL `INHERITED CHARIOTS' AND NEW STRATEGIES, WHICH WAS A CERTAIN PATH TO DEFEAT BUT A TRAP THEY FELL INTO ALL TOO OFTEN. AND THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON WAS THAT YAHUSHA DECLARED UNDER THE SET-APART WAR PROVISIONS THAT THE HORSES AND CHARIOTS BECAME YAHUSHA’S SET-APART PROPERTY AND THUS NEITHER YISHARAL NOR ANYONE ELSE WOULD BE ALLOWED TO HAVE THEM. AND HOW IS SET-APART PROPERTY GENERALLY DELIVERED INTO YAHUSHA’S HANDS? IT IS DESTROYED.
Up until this time, the King of Hazor had controlled the kingdoms that had joined together to attack Yisharal, so Joshua led his army back and captured Hazor as well, killing its King and everyone else, then they set the whole town on fire (putting it all under the ban) leaving not one alive breathing.
And Joshua captured all the towns where the enemy Kings had ruled. These towns were built on small hills and Joshua did not set fire to any of these towns, except Hazor. The Yisharalites kept the animals and everything of value from these towns, but they killed everyone who lived in them, including their Kings. That’s what Yahusha had told His servant Moses to do, that’s what Moses had told Joshua to do, and that’s exactly what Joshua did! (He didn’t ignore one single word that Moses handed down to him).
So Joshua and his army took control of the Northern and Southern Hill-Country, the foothills to the West, the Southern Desert, the whole region of Goshen and the Jordan River Valley. They took control of the land from Mount Halak near the country of Edom in the south to Baal-Gad in Lebanon Valley at the foot of Mount Hermon in the north. Joshua and his army were at war with the Kings in this region for a long time, but finally they captured and put to death the last king.
Yahusha had told Moses that He wanted all the towns in this region completely destroyed and their people killed (all put under the ban) and that’s why Yahusha hardened the hearts of the people in the towns, making them stubborn and determined to fight Yisharal. Infact not one town or city in all of Canaan even attempted to make peace with Yisharal (except the Hivite town of Gibeon). The Yisharalite army captured the rest of the towns in battle.
MUCH LIKE AS YAHUSHA DEALT WITH EGYPT’S PHARAOH, HE PUT A HARDNESS IN THE HEARTS OF THESE CANAANITE KINGS AND A FOOLISH ARROGANCE IN THEIR MINDS, AND LITERALLY DREW THEM OUT OF THEIR HIGH-WALLED BARRICADED STRONGHOLDS INTO A PLACE WHERE HE COULD HAVE THEM SLAIN IN ONE MAJOR STROKE. THE POINT BEING THAT NOT ONLY WAS THERE A SUPERNATURAL INFLUENCE EXERTED BY YAHUSHA UPON JOSHUA AND HIS ARMY, BUT ALSO UPON THE ENEMY.
WHEN WE GET INTO CHAPTERS 12 AND 13 WE’RE GOING TO FIND REFERENCE THAT MORE THAN IMPLIES THAT INDEED JOSHUA DID NOT DESTROY ALL THE CITIES HE CAPTURED, OF EITHER THE NORTH OR THE SOUTH OF CANAAN. YET CLEARLY YAHUSHA TOLD MOSES, AND MOSES TOLD JOSHUA, THAT ALL CITIES OF THE LAND OF CANAAN WERE TO BE DESTROYED, AND THAT NO MERCY WAS TO BE SHOWN, BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL UNDER THE BAN (NO EXCEPTIONS). WE FIND THESE INSTRUCTIONS IN NUMBERS AND DEUTERONOMY IN VARIOUS FORMS SOME THAT DEAL WITH THE CITIES OF CANAAN, OTHERS THAT DEAL WITH CITIES OUTSIDE OF CANAAN WHEREBY TOTAL DESTRUCTION IS ONLY WARRANTED WHEN THE ENEMY REFUSES TO MAKE PEACE.
HERE’S THE THING: DESPITE US BEING TOLD THAT JOSHUA OBEYED ALL THE WORDS OF YAHUSHA TO MOSES, WE SEE THAT THIS MUST BE SOME KIND OF OVERVIEW AND GENERALISATION BECAUSE CLEARLY THAT IS NOT THE CASE IF PERFECTION IS THE STANDARD. JOSHUA DID NOT DO PRECISELY EVERYTHING COMMANDED, AND WE’LL FIND EXAMPLES LATER IN JUDGES, AND EVEN IN CHRONICLES AND SAMUEL THAT ADDRESS THIS. FURTHER, HAD JOSHUA ANNIHILATED ALL THE INHABITANTS OF CANAAN AS INSTRUCTED, THE REALITIES THAT FACE YISHARAL THEN, WOULD HAVE BEEN EXCEEDINGLY DIFFERENT THAT WHAT THEY WERE. THEY WOULD NOT HAVE FOUND THEMSELVES FACING THE SAME ENEMY OVER AND OVER AGAIN. FURTHER, MANY BELIEVE THAT MODERN DAY ISRAEL WOULD NOT STILL BE FACING MANY OF THE ENEMIES THAT JOSHUA WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE ERADICATED EITHER ?
IF WE LIKEN THE SENSE OF VERSE 15 (THAT SAYS JOSHUA COMPLETELY OBEYED MOSES) TO THE SORTS OF PRONOUNCEMENTS WE SEE IN YAHUSHA’S FAVOR OF KING DAVID WHEN HE SAYS THAT DAVID IS A MAN AFTER YAHUSHA’S OWN HEART. YET WE ALSO SEE DAVID DO SOME OF THE MOST HEINOUS THINGS, AND COMMIT VERY SERIOUS CRIMES.
THIS PLAYS VERY MUCH INTO THE BEHAVIOUR REVOLUTION'S APPROACH IN READING YAHUSHA’S WORD WHERE IT'S DANGEROUS AND MISLEADING TO PLAY THE GAME OF, “MY VERSE (OR TRANSLATION) IS BETTER THAN YOURS”. THERE IS SIMPLY NOT A SINGLE, STANDALONE VERSE THAT OVERRIDES ALL OTHERS. WE CANNOT PLUCK VERSES OUT OF THE CONTEXT OF EITHER THEIR CHAPTER, BOOK, OR EVEN THEIR PLACE AND PURPOSE IN THE SCRIPTURE AS A WHOLE AND HOLD THEM UP AS THE FINAL WORD ON THE SUBJECT. THEY ARE PIECES OF A MUCH BIGGER PICTURE. THEY ARE DIRECTIONS TO KNITTING TOGETHER A PATTERN; OR AS WE GET TO THE LATTER TEXTS ESPECIALLY, THE VERSES OF SCRIPTURAL TEXTS BECOME DEMONSTRATIONS AND ILLUSTRATIONS AND FULFILLMENTS OF THE ONGOING, LONG AGO ESTABLISHED YAHUSHA-PATTERNS.
JOSHUA’S JOB WAS TO CONQUER CANAAN, DESTROY ALL THE EXISTING CITIES, AND KILL ALL THE CANAANITES. THE ONLY ALTERNATIVE CANAANITES HAD WAS TO PACK UP AND LEAVE CANAAN, OR TO DO AS RAHAB DID AT JERICHO; GIVE UP ALLEGIANCE TO HER FALSE DEITIES AND WORSHIP ONLY YISHARAL’S ALAHIM. BY DOING THIS SHE WAS DELIVERED, AND ALL CANAANITES HAD THIS OPTION OPEN TO THEM.
YAHUSHA’S REASON FOR ERASING THESE PEOPLE FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH, AND ALL PLACES OF THEIR FALSE RELIGIONS WAS BECAUSE YISHARAL WOULD BE TEMPTED TO WORSHIP THEIR CANAANITE IDOLS AND THIS WOULD, BY DEFINITION, AUTOMATICALLY INCUR YAHUSHA’S DESTRUCTIVE WRATH. YISHARAL WAS NOT ALLOWED TO COMPROMISE, AND YAHUSHA WAS NOT ABOUT TO COMPROMISE. AND, OF COURSE, LATER BOOKS OF THE SCRIPTURE GO ON TO CHRONICLE YISHARAL’S GROWING TASTE FOR THEIR PAGAN NEIGHBORS’ FALSE DEITIES AND THEIR FASCINATING AND TEMPTING WORSHIP CELEBRATIONS AND FESTIVALS. YAHUSHA SENT HIS PROPHETS TO WARN YISHARAL THAT WHAT HE TOLD THEM THROUGH MOSES WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY WENT DOWN THAT PATH, AND THEN WHEN YISHARAL DID NOT HEED THESE WARNINGS WE READ OF THE EVENTUAL DESTRUCTION AND EXILE OF YISHARAL FROM THE LAND YAHUSHA HAD GIVEN TO THEM. DISOBEDIENCE TO THE ALAHIM OF YISHARAL CAN BE SUBTLE, AND ITS EFFECTS CAN OFTEN TAKE TIME TO BE REALISED. BUT NEVER THINK THAT SOMEHOW THE EFFECTS WILL NOT EVENTUALLY BE MANIFESTED . . . AND PUNISHED.
PART OF THIS RETROSPECT HELPS US TO SEE THE POLITICAL AND WARTIME REALITIES THAT IN SUCH A MONUMENTAL QUEST, DON’T REALLY FOLLOW A SMOOTH ROAD, OR A TIMETABLE, OR HAVE SHARPLY DEFINED OUTCOMES. WE’RE TOLD THAT JOSHUA FOUGHT FOR A LONG TIME. IN OTHER WORDS THE MAJOR BATTLES ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE BEEN RECORDED, AND THEY ACTUALLY WERE THE SHORTEST IN LENGTH OF TIME. THE LONGER AND MORE PLANNED SKIRMISHES AND BATTLES OVER SMALL PIECES OF TERRITORY, AGAINST LESSER KINGS WOULD GO ON FOR INDEFINITE PERIODS OF TIME. IN FACT THIS IS EXACTLY AS YAHUSHA SAID IT WOULD BE:
EXODUS 23 BRS: ”I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you. I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.
WE MUST NOT BE NAÏVE AND THINK THAT JOSHUA DID EVERYTHING EXACTLY AS HE WAS SUPPOSED TOO, NEITHER SHOULD WE THINK THAT HE WAS A FAILURE OR REBELLIOUS AGAINST YAHUSHA. AS A HUMAN LEADER HE DID A VERY GOOD JOB; HE WAS LOYAL AND TRUSTWORTHY . . . BUT SOME THINGS STILL FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS AS FAR AS CONQUERING EVERYONE !
During this same time, Joshua and his army also killed the Anakim from the Northern and Southern Hill-Country. They also destroyed the towns where the Anakim had lived, including Hebron, Debir, and Anab. There weren’t any Anakim left in the regions where the Yisharalites lived, although there were still some in Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod.
THE ANAKITES ARE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REPHAIM, A RACE OF EVIL GIANTS WHO ORIGINALLY CAME FROM FALLEN ANGELS IMPREGNATING HUMAN WOMEN, FROM BEFORE THE TIME OF THE GREAT FLOOD. GOLIATH WAS AN ANAKITE WHO LIVED NEAR GAZA. THEY WERE TROUBLESOME FOR EVERYONE IN THE REGION, NOT JUST YISHARAL.
And that’s how Joshua captured the land of Canaan, just as Yahusha had instructed Moses, and Joshua divided all the land up between the tribes.
IT WAS NOT UNTIL AFTER THESE EVENTS THAT THE LAND WITHIN CANAAN STARTED TO BE OFFICIALLY DISTRIBUTED TO THE VARIOUS YISHARALITE TRIBES. AND AS WE’LL FIND OUT IN LATER CHAPTERS, IT WASN’T THAT IT HAPPENED EVENLY OR ALL AT ONCE. ESSENTIALLY TRIBES WERE DEEDED (SO TO SPEAK) THEIR TERRITORY AND THE BOUNDARIES TO THAT TERRITORY WERE FAIRLY WELL DEFINED, BUT IT WAS THAT TRIBE’S DUTY TO TAKE CONTROL OF IT AND TO ESTABLISH AND MAINTAIN TRIBAL AUTHORITY EACH OVER THEIR OWN TERRITORY. SOME TRIBES MOVED QUICKLY TO THAT END, OTHERS MORE SLOWLY. SOME ESTABLISHED A REAL DOMINANCE, WHILE OTHERS HAD ONLY THE WEAKEST OF FOOTHOLDS. SOME GOT THEIR TERRITORY EARLY ON, SOME NOT UNTIL LATER.
And finally, there was peace and a rest from fighting in the land.
THE LAND RESTED FROM WAR. BUT THIS WAS NOT A LASTING REST; IT WAS ONLY UNTIL THE LAND WAS ALLOTTED TO EACH TRIBE AND THEN FURTHER BATTLES WOULD BEGIN ANEW FOR YISHARAL TO SOLIDIFY THEIR GAINS. IT INDICATES A REST OF HOSTILITIES. SO WE CAN SAY THAT THERE WAS A LULL IN THE ACTION FOR A PERIOD OF TIME, LIKELY WHILE ALL PARTIES HAD GROWN WEARY OF THE CONFLICT AND NEEDED TO LICK THEIR RESPECTIVE WOUNDS. IN ANCIENT TIMES WARS WERE USUALLY FOUGHT IN-BETWEEN HARVESTS, OUTSIDE OF RAINY SEASONS, AND AT TIMES WHEN MOVEMENT OF FORCES WAS EASIER AND OTHER PRACTICAL NEEDS (LIKE FARMING) HAD BEEN MET. SO IF AFTER SEVERAL WEEKS THE OBJECTIVE HAD NOT BEEN MET, BATTLE WAS ROUTINELY PUT ON HOLD WHILE THE OTHER NECESSITIES OF LIFE WERE ADDRESSED. IF A KING HAD A STANDING ARMY WITH ENOUGH RESOURCES SUPPLIED BY THE CIVILIANS, THEN THIS DIDN’T NECESSARILY APPLY.
YISHARAL DID NOT HAVE A STANDING ARMY. JOSHUA’S FORCES WERE FARMERS, HERDERS, AND CRAFTSMEN, NOT PROFESSIONAL SOLDIERS. SO EVERY DAY AT BATTLE WAS ANOTHER DAY THAT A FAMILY COULD NOT ESTABLISH A FIELD, OR A VINEYARD, OR AN ORCHARD. YET BATTLE WAS NECESSARY TO INHERIT WHAT YAHUSHA HAD DECIDED LONG AGO.
WITH THE MAJOR BATTLES BEHIND THEM, CONQUERING WAS NOW GOING TO GIVE WAY TO SETTLING FOR YISHARAL. THE LAND OF CANAAN HAD BEEN PREPARED FOR YISHARAL’S OCCUPATION BY REMOVING THE WICKED SQUATTERS, THE VARIOUS PAGAN PEOPLES WHO HAD POPULATED THAT REGION.
THIS IS PARTLY A FULFILLMENT OF WHAT YAHUSHA PROMISED ABRAHAM OVER 600 YEARS PRIOR . . . PEACE AND PROSPERITY IN A PERMANENT HOME AND A LAND OF HIS OWN.
LAST CHAPTER WE DISCUSSED THE FIGHT NEEDED TO AQUIRE AND MAINTAIN YAHUSHA'S PEACE :
Remember Yahusha said to Joshua, "Don’t be afraid of them all, for I’ll help you defeat them, and by this time tomorrow they’ll all be annihilated. So when you attack, the first thing you have to do is to cripple (hamstring) their horses, then once the battle is over, burn all their chariots”.
DON'T BE AFRAID (TRUST & BELIEVE)
HAMSTRING THEIR HORSES (IMMOBILISE THEM)
BURN THEIR CHARIOTS (THEY AIN'T GO'IN HOME)
THEY'LL BE ANNIHILATED (DEMONS GONE, TRUTH REVEALED)
REMEMBER WE ARE NOT FIGHTING FLESH & BLOOD BUT DEMON-POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES IN HIGH PLACES. THE WORDS WE USE HAVE THE POWER OF LIFE OR DEATH. YAHUSHA IS FIGHTING A SET-APART WAR AS WE SPEAK AND HE’S USING HIS BRIDE TO DO IT RIGHT HERE ON EARTH, THROUGH HER BEHAVIOUR.
OUR WORDS CAN DISABLE THE ENEMY AND THEY CAN ALSO GIVE LIFE TO THE DOWN-TRODDEN BUT ONLY IF WE DO NOT OPERATE IN FEAR.
FEAR IS THE GREATEST WEAPON OF THE ENEMY TO KEEP US DOWN, SHUT US UP AND RENDER US INEFFECTIVE IN THE WARFARE THAT WE’VE BEEN CALLED OUT TO WAGE. IT IS NOT OUR JOB TO KNOW THE OUTCOMES OR EVEN THE BATTLE STRATEGY, BUT TO LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF OUR MASTER GENERAL AND BE OBEDIENT, KNOWING THAT EACH STEP OF OBEDIENCE WE TAKE HERE IN THE NATURAL, SHOOTS US WAY AHEAD IN THE SET-APART BATTLE YAHUSHA IS FIGHTING IN THE SHAMAYIM FOR THE HEARTS OF MEN AND WOMEN.
WE WILL SEE THE ENEMY THWARTED EVERY TIME, SHUT UP, SILENCED, DEFEATED IN ALL SITUATIONS IF WE ARE WILLING TO WEAR OUR ARMOR AND ATTACK, INVADE, OVERCOME, GUARD AND PROTECT THE TRUTH, WIELDING THE TURAH OF THE 3 RULES AS WE STAND IN THE CONFIDENCE AND STRENGTH OF YAHUSHA, WHO ALWAYS HAS HIS WAY IN THE END.
YAHUSHA IS NOT AFRAID, HE'S ALWAYS ON GUARD AND ON THE CONSTANT ATTACK, READY . . . ARE YOU? OR DO YOU WEAZEL BACK AND COWAR AWAY FROM CONFLICTS, GUTLESS AND FULL OF EXCUSES THAT YAHUSHA WILL FIGHT ALL THE BATTLES FOR YOU? SURE HE GOES AHEAD AND BEHIND US TO ENSURE THE VICTORY, BUT ARE YOU WILLING TO ATTACK THE ENEMY AND DO YOUR PART WHEN INSTRUCTED BY HIM?
