Joshua the son of Nun, who stands before you, he shall go in there. Encourage him, for he shall cause Israel to inherit it.
This weekend, I’ll be preaching from Joshua 2 concerning the scarlet thread that runs through all of Scripture, foreshadowed and typified by the scarlet line which Rahab the harlot let down from her window. That scarlet thread signaled to the approaching Israelites that everyone in her household should be spared because of their acting by faith that God was God and Savior alone.
“I also will not henceforth drive out any from before them of the nations which Joshua left when he died: That through them I may prove Israel, whether they will keep the way of the Lord to walk therein, as their fathers did keep it, or not.” -Judges 2:21-22
“On that day the Lord magnified Joshua in the sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life.”—Joshua 4:14
j“…thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by:… and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.”—Joshua to Rahab the harlot in Joshua 2:18-19
